“The 2015 is the current release of the zesty and potent Montefalco Rosso San Valentino.  Its’s composed of 70% Sangiovese, 15% Sagrantino and 15% Montepulciano, all from 50-year-old vines within the San Valentino vineyard.  Also worth mentioning is that this doesn’t spend any time in wood, instead, maturation takes place over three years in stainless steel tank. That said, the intense mix of berry, cherry, clove, sweet mineral, violet and dusty rose that forms the bouquet is all terroir, varietal and vintage.  It makes its presence known with tart red fruits, sour citrus and spice, as nervous acids force the mouth to water, adding further sweetness and thrust.  The expression suddenly turns feminine and perfumed, with a mix of gorgeous inner florals resonating above a tug of subtle tannin.  The 2015 is a seductive, eyes-rolling-to-the-back-of-your-head expression of San Valentino.”  92 points – Eric Guido, Vinous
