Sant' Elena

Quantum is a powerfully rich and elegant wine. Dark cherries, tobacco, and cherries leap out of the glass as the aromas slowly evolve over time in the glass. Velvety and warm in the mouth, the noble tannin finish is a staple characteristic of the indigenous variety. The wine is an ideal partner for gamy red meats such as venison and wild boar.

Wine Advocate

The 2006 Quantum L'Autoctono (Pignolo) is an absolutely delicious, huge red that explodes from the glass with dark fruit, leather, licorice, anise and French oak. This large-scaled, exuberant wine exhibits remarkable depth and plenty of textural richness. Hints of mocha and espresso frame the huge finish. This is the finest wine I have tasted from Sant'Elena. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024.

Score: 94. —Antonio Galloni, February 2011.
