2012 Felsina "Maestro Raro" Cabernet Sauvignon Toscana

SKU #1275457 94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Fèlsina's 2012 Maestro Raro (Cabernet Sauvignon) is a real head-turner, although it is also an infant and in need of considerable cellaring. A bold, dark wine, the 2012 is vivid in the glass, with remarkable detail for such a big wine and exceptional overall balance. The 2012 is sweeping and dramatic in style, with plenty of that year's exotic fruit and opulence, along with plenty of sweet tobacco, rosemary, sage and cedar notes that add nuance. The 2012 needs time to fully meld together, but it is fabulous, even today. (AG) Inner quote mark (9/2015)

93 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark A traditional Super Tuscan cab with chewy tannins, minerals, as well as spice and berry character. Full-bodied, structured and savory. Needs two or three years to soften. Drink in 2017. Inner quote mark (8/2015)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Maestro Raro is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from the Rancia Piccolo vineyard adjacent to the Rancia vineyard that is celebrated for its Sangiovese. The hot vintage has crafted a thick, dark and heavily concentrated wine that delivers extra power and brawn. The first vintage of this wine was 1987. Maestro Raro shows deep lines and thick determination in the mouth. It will age forward for ten years or more. (ML) Inner quote mark (10/2015)

92 points Wine Spectator
