"There is a slight difference in the grape composition of this vintage, compared to the previous one. For the 2011 vintage, we found that 50% Sangiovese and 50% Cabernet Sauvignon was the best blend, permitting the special characteristics of each variety to shine through in the tasting profile of the wine."  Virginie Saverys, owner

  • 95/100 "The 2011 Grifi is more than a worthy successor to the 2010 and although different, is just as delicious. The 2011 is a blend of 50% Sangiovese and 50% Cabernet which is slightly odd because the former is the darker wine. Deep ruby with violet highlights at the rim, the 2011 displays aromas of berries, plum, mint and flowers. Flavors follow the nose with loads of concentration with added notes of leather and anise. Again, the terroir comes through with lots of integrated, dusty, powdery tannins. Overall, a fleshier experience relative to the structure of the 2010. I love it."  John Fodera, Tuscan Vine
