Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - The 2011 Magari IGT is a soft and savory wine that boasts dark extraction and a high degree of aromatic intensity. Lush cherry and blackberry emerge from this blend of mostly Merlot with Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. You feel a point of alcoholic heat that is in line with the warm 2011 vintage, that extra power folds nicely within the broad texture of the mouthfeel.

90 Points 
Wine Enthusiast - Made with a blend of 50% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon and 25% Cabernet Franc, this wine starts with aromas of espresso, coffee, black plum and cooking spices. The concentrated palate delivers black currants and black cherry layered with espresso, dark chocolate and toasted oak. It’s soft but still tightly wound and finishes on a drying, astringent note. Drink through 2018.

90 Points 
Wine Spectator - A deep, rich version, with the plum, black cherry, vanilla and toast flavors aligned with a dense texture and refined tannins. Long and harmonious, this should benefit from additional time in the bottle. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2015 through 2022.
