Bright, with black currant, blackberry, violet, earth, tobacco, and graphite flavors. Supple and well-balanced, yet backed by dense tannins that crash the party on the finish. The long aftertaste and lasting impression is one of sweet fruit. Best from 2021 through 2036. 1,250 cases made, 100 cases imported.93pts - Eric Guido (Vinous- Antonio Galloni)
The 2014 Sant'Antimo Cabernet Sauvignon Olmaia is dark and powerful, showing depths of black currant and plum sauce and complemented by notes of sage, tobacco and crushed stone. It floods the palate with silky textures, polished yet youthfully tense, the fruits leaning more toward the red spectrum with inner herbal and earth notes, as grippy tannins slowly mount toward the close. The finish is long and structured, tugging at the senses with minerals and zesty acids, while leaving hints of menthol and savory spice. It's worth tasting the Olmaia today for its primary fruit, though the best is yet to come
