91 points "Plenty of blackberry and cherry character, with a hint of coffee. Medium- to full-bodied, with chewy tannins and a rich finish. Well-done. Big, rich and racy. Give it time. Best after 2007. 7,500 cases made. - JS - 91 Points - Wine Spectator." Best 2007-2012

91 points "Tenute del Cabreo belongs to Ambrogio and Giovanni Folonari, formerly active in the family firm of Ruffino but now out on their own. The 2001 Cabreo il Borgo, a Sangiovese with Cabernet, shows a new finesse in the integration of the two grapes with its fragrant and elegant aromas of red currants and black currants, spicy oak, and violets, its ample and polished palate, and the lingering, well-sustained finish. It will drink well for another decade." Best 2007-2011
