This is the second vintage for Saggi, the newest Long Shadows collaboration, this one with Tuscany's Ambrogio and Giovanni Folonari. The blend is again in the super Tuscan mold—45% Sangiovese, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Syrah. Smooth, chocolaty and ripe, the wine is loaded with purple fruits, the flavors elegant and refined, bringing a lovely mix of fruit, barrel, spice and leaf together seamlessly. Paul Gregutt

All tastings reported in the Buying Guide are performed blind. Typically, products are tasted in peer-group flights of from 5-8 samples. Reviewers may know general information about a flight to provide context—vintage, variety or appellation—but never the producer or retail price of any given selection. When possible, products considered flawed or uncustomary are retasted.
