Deep crimson with garnet reflections, ample and elegant bouquet; extract-loaded, powerful, round, rich and well balanced on the palate, with a magnitude that speaks of the unique terroir; extremely persistent.
Vinous 89 points - The 2010 Cignale, Querceto’s Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot blend, offers considerable depth, but also comes across as a bit rough around the edges. Game, smoke, tobacco, leather and cedar open up over time, but firm tannins and wild, ferrous notes add to an overall impression of rusticity. Dark red cherries, iron, smoke, tobacco and white pepper add further shades of nuance on the close. The 2010 is certainly solid, but I would like to see more pedigree and personality, especially in such an important vintage.
