96 points "The 2006 Guardavigna is even better. Here the fruit is riper, darker and richer. Blackberries, blueberries, grilled herbs, minerals and tar emerge from this dark, brooding beauty. The wine possesses gorgeous inner perfume and an utterly captivating personality. The tannins remain imposing, so a few years of cellaring are recommended, but readers lucky enough to find the Guardavigna are in for a thrilling drinking experience. Guardavigna is Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Sangiovese. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2026. Score: 96 (Antonio Galloni, www.erobertparker. com, Aug. 2009)" Best 2012-2026
