2017 Farnetella "Lucilla" Toscana Rosso (Elsewhere $18)

SKU #1459357 93 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark A red that beguiles with its subtle aromas of undergrowth and roasted herbs, backed up by blackcurrants, dark plums and toasted oak. Structured, in the sense that it’s both finely gained and quite muscular, rolling through dusty dark fruit and a pretty sweet-and-sour character. 70% Sangiovese, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Merlot. Inner quote mark (4/2019)

90 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2017 Lucilla is the estate's Sangiovese-based blend, is bold and fruity, with lovely depth and impeccable balance. The addition of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot to a core of Sangiovese works extremely well to temper the ripeness of the year. The 2017 is curvy, racy and flat-out delicious.

The nose of this wine is complex it is loaded with ripe plum accented with wild cherry and then followed by leather, porcini and Tuscan brush. On the palate you can sense this is a wine of weight and density, it has structure and will have an ability to age. I tasted this wine over the course of three days and it seemed to get better daily, the fruit expanding and the earthy notes becoming more background. The wine also showed real length, with a lively finish. If you're looking at the price of this wine you might be a bit fooled, yes this is rather inexpensive for the more expensive description I have written but this is the one you want to buy several cases of, it is a steal, and absolute steal at this price. Enjoy...

This is simply put, one of the most outstanding values in our store. No hyperbole. I have had this wine at least three days a week since it arrived. Terrific pizza/pasta/tuesday night wine. I don't know what my life would be without it. My name is Sean Reilly and I approve this message.

This is my favorite vintage of "Lucilla"! Dark fruited, with black olive tapenade, savory herbs and smooth texture it's definitely over-delivers for its price. I like its firm structure yet supple finish and generous fruit. I had it with classic lasagna and it was magic pairing! Delicious everyday wine for sure.

This is one of my favorite producers from Tuscany. This is their "Super Tuscan" - a very user friendly wine, the blend is Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Lots of dark skinned fruit with spice, minerals that complete each other on the nose and palate. The wine has pleasantly soft tannins, but good acidity to pull it all together. Buy two, the first one will disappear quickly. This 2017 ROCKS !!!
