Re di Renieri IGT Toscana Renieri 2011

External Review by WineExpress.com:

Renieri is an extraordinary property in the southern part of the Montalcino region, owned by the visionary and innovative Marco Bacci. Normally a stronghold for Sangiovese, which grows well here as the high-scoring Renieri Brunellos will attest, but the soils on this property are varied and unique and allow for a wide range of different grapes to show exceptional and unique character as in this Right Bank Bordeaux style blend. 60% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot aged 15 months in Allier French oak barrels. James Suckling included it in his list of the Top 100 New Super Tuscans in 2012 along with greats like Sassicaia, Guado Al Tasso, Solaia and Ornellaia. He scored this 2011 94 points saying "Fascinating aromas of toasted rye bread and dark fruits. Full body, silky, refined tannins and a long, long finish. An intense red with a wonderful style and length. Better in 2016."
