Stignano, IGT Toscana Rosso: 1997 Bottled. | 1998 Bottled. | 2001 Sangiovese, Merlot. A bit over-extracted, think these wines need a bit of time to blow off the oak, could also be a bit over-ripe at Argiano on Thursday 31 March 2005.) | 2008 50% each Merlot & Sangiovese. £15-29.99. Ripe, restrained and classy, elegant palate, clean, clear and ripely assured, polished – a tick-box wine that lacks complexity? (Commended DWWA 2013).
