Wine Spectator 89 points - Delivers a mix of cherry, currant, herb and spice flavors, backed by vibrant acidity and firm tannins. Stays trim and lean on the moderately long finish. Cabernet Sauvignon. Best from 2013 through 2020. -BS

Vinous 92 points - The 2008 Il Sole di Alessandro (Cabernet Sauvignon) is another impressive wine. Here, too, the wine’s depth and balance stand out. Varietal aromas and flavors take a back seat to a distinctly Tuscan personality in this full-bodied, powerful red. Smoke, incense and French oak wrap around the potent finish.
