Anyone who loves great Sangiovese should snap up this star-quality wine. Always a personal favorite, the '99 doesn't disappoint. It's lively and electric, with structure equal to the Tuscan fort in which it was tasted. As for flavors, look for overflowing blackberry, cola, mocha and more. A wine that can probably last for 15 years.
