Wine Enthusiast 92 Points
($50) A cheerful super Tuscan blend of Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, this shows a very elegant and sophisticated side. It is modern, plump and extracted, but it also delivers fine aromas of cherry, vanilla, spice and pipe tobacco.
Antonio Galloni's Vinous 92 Points
The 2009 Ser Gioveto (Sangiovese) is rich, powerful and refined. Dark red cherries, plums, smoke, licorice and tobacco all meld together in a sensual, deeply layered wine. Game, leather, savory herbs and tobacco add complexity on the generous, inviting finish. This is one of the most beautiful wines I can remember tasting from Rocca delle Macie.
Bright ruby-red in color, Ser Gioveto releases a warm, attractive aroma of black cherry, plum and blackcurrant syrup, followed by balsamic notes with a spicy finish of leather and sweet tobacco, and can hold its own with full-flavored dishes thanks to its assertive tannic note.
Serve at a temperature of 66°F or lower. It complements red meat and game very well.
Following destemming, the berries are softly pressed and fermentation is completed on the skins at 75º - 79ºF. Malolactic fermentation occurs in spring. The wine is aged 9-14 months in barriques, small 225L barrels made of French oak, and further matures in the bottle for approximately nine months prior to release.
