"The 2008 Quadrimendo (Sangiovese/Merlot) is an attractive wine loaded with dark fruit, flowers, spices and licorice. It boasts plenty of intensity in its fruit and the big, burly personality that is the house signature, but with softer tannins than the Brunellos, most likely because of the significant presence of Merlot. This is a terrific showing from Vitanza. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2016."
