Supple, juicy, elegantly pointed and with that inimitable tiny bitterness which makes so appetisingly more-ish. Very sophisticated simplicity of bright cherry and blackberry, a wine you can drink every day of the week. L&S (May 2014)

Vines planted at 120m facing south towards the sea in the centre of the Morellino DOC. A little Syrah adds spice but no exaggeration to the Maremma's Sangiovese fruit. This has very natural, even sophisticated flavours.

From coastal Tuscany, a rich, purplish, ripe blend of sangiovese and syrah. Think stewed damsons and brambles with violets in an old leather satchel with a drop of quinine. The modern face of Italian reds, upbeat and crowd-pleasingVictoria Moore, The Daily Telegraph(Jul 2014)
Lovely floral character and leatheriness. Softened tannins, bitter but not sour. Really attractive - floaty and easy-drinking, but still substantial. 2014-2017 Rating: 17 Richard Hemming MW - www.JancisRobinson.com(Apr 2014)
Fattoria di Magliano
Nestled in the hilly Italian countryside of Maremma Toscana with its vineyards descending towards the Tyrrhenian Sea from a height of 300m, The vineyards here offer some of the best views we know of the Tuscan coastline. It is a beautiful and yet still quite a wild place. La Fattoria di Magliano was set up in 1996 by Agostino Lenci. Agostino, fascinated by the history of the region and its centuries old wine-making traditions, sees his job and duty to safeguard nature – both wild and agricultural. Bringing in the expertise of Sassicaia's winemaker Graziana Grassini was a shrewd move and she still oversees the wine-making here with aplomb. Minimum intervention and now completely organic with certification from 2018 onwards, Agostino and his team are making smart and wonderfully characterful wines here from local varieties and some small productions of some very charming Super Tuscans too.
Nearly twenty-five years, on these beautiful vineyards are maturing and producing the best fruit of their lives, vine age and bio-dynamic practices means these wines now really are better than ever since the first harvest in 2003. And we should not forget that even when young these vineyards were producing wonderful fruit - the 2004 Poggio Bestiale was rated Italy's best Tuscan wine under £20 in Decanter magazine – quite an achievement for a wine with such a short history. The soil here is sandy with a good amount of clay, which combined with a good dose of sunshine and sea breeze, results in some really beautiful wines – full-flavoured, ripely rich but with a dynamic twang of acidity and pep that makes them just so drinkable.
