2010 San Felice "Vigorello" Toscana
A refined and focused red with chocolate, currants and berries on the nose and palate. Full body, integrated tannins and a fresh, clean finish. Very polished. Made predominately from Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Open after 2014 when the tannins will be more integrated into the wine.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Made for the first time in 1968 at the start of the super-Tuscan movement, the 2010 Vigorello is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and a smaller component of Petit Verdot. It’s a beautiful and extremely elegant wine that bursts from the glass with pristine tones of black fruit, licorice, rosea and dried lavender, Mediterranean herb and a sweet hint of vanilla. The balance and complexity are outstanding and both point to the high levels achieved in 2010. It will develop more complexity in time. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2025. (ML)
A well-oaked, flashy style, boasting cherry, blackberry, tar and smoke flavors. Bright and juicy, with firm underlying tannins. Fine length. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2020. (Web-2014)
The 2010 Vigorello is an attractive, juicy wine with plenty of near-term appeal. The flavors are rich, generous and surprisingly open for the year. Black cherry, plum, smoke, licorice and mocha notes resonate on the finish. The 2010 is 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot, but it is the Merlot that is most expressive in this vintage.
