appearance:: intense ruby red nose:: rich bouquet of ripe dark fruit with nice spicy tones and well balanced vanilla notes, mineral taste:: soft tannins; good acidity and a smooth finish
Wine Advocate 91 points - The 2006 Dromos is the finest wine this property has produced to date. A big, exuberant red, the 2006 Dromos flows with masses of dark fruit, herbs, minerals and French oak. With some time in the glass, the wine’s inner perfume emerges, adding further complexity. The tannins build on the finish, and the wine needs another year or two in bottle but it is a delicious example of Maremma in this important vintage. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2016.  (Aug 2009)

Wine Spectator 93 points - This red exhibits plenty of fresh blackberry and black cherry notes, but also iron, mineral and loam flavors that give complexity and a sense of place. Well-balanced and long on the aftertaste. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Alicante, Sangiovese and Cabernet Franc. Drink now through 2016. 3,000 cases imported. –BS (Sep 30 2011)

Producer
Wisely integrated in the shining and rural surrounding landscape of Maremma Toscana, the vineyards are 27 ha in size with density of 6700 vines per ha grown with low spurred cordon. Rocky soil of calcareous and clayey nature, height between 170 and 300 m. on sea level, south-southwest exposure and 15 km distance from the Mediterranean sea represent ideal conditions for indigenous varietals such as Sangiovese and Alicante together with Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot perfectly integrated along the Tuscan coast since many decades. The winery is the other important quality component. Built following the gravity flow principle, it is fully underground to respect the surroundings and covered by vines. In its building modality and shape – as shown by the long passage crossing the cellar all the way from the entrance – it reminds essentiality and harmony typical of Etruscan style.
