''Aromas of currants and sweet tobacco with some cedar undertones. Medium to full body and firm, silky tannins. Lightly chewy mouthfeel, yet so attractive.'' 93 Points, James Suckling

"The 2016 Seggio is a classic Bolgheri wine that brings together the fruit intensity of Syrah with the brilliant top notes of Cabernet Franc, a super-appealing combination, in my book. Sumptuous, racy and forward, this resonant super-expressive red is endowed with tremendous class. The 2016 offers notable depth and finishes with terrific freshness. I loved it." 93 Points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

''This red leans toward the firm, dry side, featuring touches of bell pepper, green olive and spice that accent the main black cherry and black currant flavors. Taut and long, with refreshing acidity.'' 93 Points, Wine Spectator Magazine

''Rich, full-bodied, fleshy and glossy. This is a fine Bolgheri wine with quite a lot of showy character.'' 92 Points, Andy Howard, Decanter Magazine

''Dark, rich ruby ​​red. Elegant and delicately spicy nose, black currant, young blackberry and some cassis underlaid with light licorice and eucalyptus. Balanced on the palate with a spicy body, beautifully tense, coherent, well done.'' 90 Points, Falsfaff Magazine (Germany)

''The wine opens to spice and bramble with dark fruit nuances, surrounded by thick layers of spice, tobacco, tar and resin. This wine offers a specific and unique mouthful that is full and dense but also creamy and luscious. It makes a particularly glossy or shiny impact in terms of mouthfeel.'' 92 Points, Monica Larner, Wine Enthusiast Magazine

'As good (or better) as the 2015s are, the 2016s have the potential to surpass them. A balanced growing season with no shock events produced a set of truly exceptional, highly promising wines. The 2016s are distinguished by their superb aromatic presence, silky tannins, layered fruit and fabulous sense of harmony.'' Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

''Tuscany remains the strongest beacon for the great wines of Italy around the world, and as a symbol for outstanding quality wines, it is only going to get stronger with the 2016 vintage.''James Suckling
