Notes from the Winemaker:
The 2008 Coronato is characterized by its deep ruby-red color and intense and complex aromas of dark cherries, prunes, chocolate, coffee and vanilla. The palate is balanced with a nice acidity, velvety tannins and a fine, lengthy finish.



Ratings & Reviews


93 Points - Wine Enthusiast:
"Formerly Tenuta di Biserno, Tenuta dei Pianali produces Coronato specifically for the U.S. market. This blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc opens with bold and fleshy cherry fruit backed by savory tones of pipe tobacco, leather, chocolate and exotic spice. The wine is full, soft and generous on the palate. Drink now or hold five more years." - (Apr 1st, 2013)

92 Points - James Suckling:
Aromas of ripe plums and berries follow through to a full body, with velvety tannins and a dark chocolate and mineral aftertaste. Just starting to open now. Better in 2013. - JS (Aug 3rd, 2012)

91 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
The 2008 Bolgheri Coronato is quite a bit more interesting than the 2009. Licorice, truffles, smoke, tar and graphite meld into a core of expressive dark fruit. The 2008 impresses for its aromatic nuance and structure, two elements that are less prominent in the 2009, at least today. This is a beautiful wine from Lodovico Antinori. The 2008 is 40% Merlot, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon and 25% Cabernet Franc. - AG (Jun, 2012)

90 Points - Antonio Galloni's Vinous Media:
Medium-deep red. Aromatic nose melds dark plum, coffee, smoked meat and nutty oak. Then suave and mellow on the palate, with dark plum and blackcurrant fruit complicated by herb and tobacco nuances. Fine-grained, nicely delineated wine, finishing with supple tannins and very good length. - Ian D'Agata (Sept, 2012)
