Wine Advocate-Parker : A blend of 65% Sangiovese and 35% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2015 Balifico is yet another protagonist of a vintage that has been extremely kind to Tuscany's blended red wines. That lasting summer heat and sunshine has shaped a full-bodied red with ripe tones of blackberry, cherry and spice. Those tangy spicy notes, with sweet cinnamon and savory barbecue smoke, give the wine a greater sense of fullness and lasting persistence. The tannins are already soft and ready, giving this wine an immediately accessible personality. Bottle production is 12,000 units strong.
