Listed among Italy's Fines Values. ------------------------------------------ Wine Advocate August 31, 2008 ------------------------------------------ San Patrignano's 2007 Aulente Bianco Rubicone is made in a fairly rich, generous style, a blend of Sauvignon and Chardonnay, it offers a little of what could be called varietal character, but it is a tasty soft textured white to drink over the next year. ------------------------------------------ Guide to Italian Wines 3 Stars - Very Good A Unique Wine Project ------------------------------------------ 100% Sangiovese. Bright ruby red with aromas of ripe black cherry, soy and marinade. Medium-bodied with very good concentration. Nice use of oak, lively acidity and moderate tannins. Enjoy over the next 2-3 years. ------------------------------------------ 87 points ------------------------------------------ The 2005 Aulente is a 100 percent Sangiovese, full ruby in color with bright strawberry and crushed-berry aromas.
