The rolling hills of Montalcino are home to some of Italy’s finest reds. While a handful of top estates do grow a bit of Cabernet Sauvignon—to blend with Sangiovese for their Super Tuscan reds—very few make a 100% Cabernet. And you won’t find a better one (or bigger value) than this, especially given its two 90+ point scores.

It hails from Carlo Vittori’s celebrated Molino di Sant’Antimo estate, a stone’s throw from $200-plus Poggio di Sotto. He calls it Le Fughe (‘the refuge’), after the old farmhouse that once overlooked his family’s prized Cabernet vines.

Le Fughe is a perennial, 90+ point favorite of Italian wine expert James Suckling, who raved about the cellar-worthy 2018: “a rich, juicy red with lots of blackberry, blackcurrant, chocolate and walnut character. It’s full and very dense. 91 points.” It's delicious now, but (as Suckling also notes), it’ll really come into its own after a few more years in the bottle (2023 and beyond)—if you can stand to wait that long!

This Tuscan treasure is sourced from two special sites, perched at over 800 feet up—and is aged 18 luxurious months in fine oak. Aromas of black currant, cedar, and violet unfurl in the glass. The palate is full bodied, with food-friendly tannins and flavors of ripe berries plus notes of chocolate and spice.
