Vinous 93 points - The estate’s 2008 Aragone, is exceptionally beautiful in this vintage. A wine that impresses for its depth and persistence, the 2008 is loaded with black fruit, smoke, melted road tar, leather and wild flowers. All the elements come together in a Maremma red endowed with serious power. Aragone remains one of the most intriguing wines in the southern part of Maremma. The use of Alicante, Syrah and Carignan in concert with Sangiovese gives the Aragone a distinct personality all its own.
