CHI Coevo trim

Here’s a new review from the Wine Spectator of the 2011 Toscana COEVO. It appears in the July 31, 2015, issue.

Toscana Coevo 2011
90 points
Aromatic, revealing spice, tobacco and underbrush flavors around the core of cherry and plum. Overall, this is compact, and needs a year to settle down. Fine length. Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Best from 2016 through 2025. 1,250 cases made. –Bruce Sanderson.
