Sant' Elena

With its vivacious ruby colour, this is a wine characterized by an ample and elegant perfume of cherry and canine rose with hints of chocolate and tobacco.It is rich in well integrated tannins with softness and high freshness.

Wine Advocate

I was very impressed with the 2004 Merlot, a wine that offers incredible quality for a Northern Italian red at this price. This full-bodied wine flows with gorgeous dark red cherries, earthiness, minerals and sweet herbs, showing tons of flavor and style. Sant'Elena gives this entry-level Merlot 18 months in neutral large oak. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2011.

Score: 88. —Antonio Galloni, August 2008.
