JAMES SUCKLING / 91 pts

Wonderful aromas of blueberries and cream follow through to a full body with well-integrated tannins and a medium finish. Sleek structure with a caressing mouthfeel. Pretty wine from a favorite producer of Brunello di Montalcino. Better in 2015.

WINE ENTHUSIAST / 90 pts

Mantus, a 100% Merlot from the Montalcino area of Tuscany, shows territory-driven aromas of mineral and white stone backed by plush fruit and loads of cherry. It’s a fine, elegant wine without that extra ripeness or jamminess you sometimes see with warm climate Merlot. — M.L.

ANNUARIO DEI MIGLIOR VINI ITALIANI /Luca Maroni

Certo della sua dote d’assoluta eccellenza è la pastosità, la sua fittezza polposa che rende il suo aroma prima penetrante nell’emissione, quindi lungamente balsamico e persistente nelle propaggini ultime della sua maestosa espressione. Davvero fra i Merlot più massivi di Toscana di sempre, un vino che è innanzitutto tesoro e fuoriclasse viticolo. Il suo ricco tesoro? Una mora mentolata da refole di spezie orientali, d’eucalipto e vaniglia, vene che avvolgono il suo drappo di viscosa glicerina in un fastoso volant la cui sofficità ha la suadenza in profumo del cedro.

2006

WINE SPECTATOR / 91 pts

Blackberry and hints of green olive on the nose. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins and a fruity finish. Very fruity and juicy; excellent depth of fruit. Needs time to soften. Best after 2011. 325 cases made. –JS

A Művelt Alkoholista

Veritable aroma therapy – profoundly sensual, concetrated fruits.
Nu piruett meg pas de deux. All tango in full bloom./ Alföldi

Globe and Mail / “Superb”

Nº 1 – Best Imported Wine of 2008/Borigo

WINE SPECTATOR / 91 pts

Aromas of plum, blackberry and chocolate. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a long, long finish. Delicious. Best after 2010. 430 cases made. – JS

WINE ENTHUSIAST / 88 pts

This Montalcino-based Merlot has a lot going on but is just a tad too raw and ripe to break into the 90-points range. On the nose, it offers a mélange of strawberry, blueberry, almond, balsam notes and mint. The tannins are silky and smooth. – ML

DUEMILAVINI / 3 grappoli

Ferro, mentuccia, frutti di bosco in confettura, non profondo, chiude scuro e ombroso. Cannelloni.

2002

WINE SPECTATOR / 88 pts

Intense aromas of black olive, meat and berries follow through to a medium-bodied palate, with chewy tannins and a medium finish. Juicy red. Best after 2006. 200 cases imported. – JS

WINE & SPIRITS / 90 pts

Generously textured, this luscious merlot is packed with black cherry flavor edged in black tannin. Decant it for prime rib.
