Principe Corsini's Marsiliana Estate is located in Manciano in the southern portion of the Maremma region of Tuscany. Long a family holding, most of the 2800 hectares is primarily used as a hunting reserve and that has allowed for the optimum selection and placement of the 50 acres of vineyards within the property. With vines now over 20 years old, many plots are within a few kilometers of the sea and take advantage of the prevalent Mediterranean climate and exceptional soils for Bordeaux varietals found in Tuscany. A hand-harvested blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot that ages for at least 15 months in French barriques followed by another year in bottle prior to its limited release, the vineyards are certified both organic and vegan.
"Taking a sip of this wine is as intimate an experience as listening to one's own heartbeat. It is a deep, dense midnight blue with an intense aroma whose complexity comes from the three grape varieties Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Petit Verdot. It is calm, smooth, and almost hypnotic. Its opulent bouquet fills the senses with mallow, thyme, fresh balsam, incense, and musk, dreamlike notes that intertwine with black cherry, juniper, cassis, and juicy plum. In the mouth it is rich but not tiring, soft and round but interspersed with saline notes, like a bite of dark chocolate with Maldon salt flakes. It is dense and velvety, and the dark fruit flavors make for a full, profound, yet impressively elegant palate with prevalent balsamic flavors and vigorous tannins. Finishes with hints of eucalyptus and cacao. Has a Mediterranean character and Tuscan spirit." - Winery Notes

95 WA: "Described as the "grand vin" of this estate, the 2015 Marsiliana is remarkable for its precision and definition. This limited-release Tuscan red is a well-structured blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot. The forest and floral notes are some of the fine details mirroring the vineyards of limestone earth nestled among the Maremma pines. Black fruit is matched seamlessly to savory nuances. The vintage is still young, as this wine is built for the long haul." - Monica Larner, Wine Advocate
94 JS: "Beautiful clarity on the nose with tangerine peel, citrus, licorice, herbs and Chinese spices. Full-bodied and tight. Yet, there are caressing tannins and a mineral finish which carries itself long and succulent. Drink in 2020." - James Suckling
