From the Critics:

  • "The 2009 Ampeleia is the most striking wine I have ever tasted from Ampeleia. A blast of rich, dark fruit hits the palate, followed by exotic espresso, sage and sweet spices. There is a wild, unrestrained quality to the 2009 that separates it from most wines being made on the Tuscan coast today. Layers of fruit build to the rich, voluminous finish. This is a fabulous effort. Ampeleia is 60% Cabernet Franc and 15% Sangiovese, plus an assortment of other red grapes grown on the property. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2021."

    "I was deeply impressed with the wines I tasted from Ampeleia this year. Every time I went back to the wines, I found a new shade of dimension. A gradual conversion to biodynamic farming and an increased use of cement vats are stripping these wines to the bare essentials, and what comes through more often than not these days is pure class." (06/12) - 94 Pts Antonio Galloni - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
  • "Deep, opaque ruby-red. Aromas of red berries, herbs, cocoa powder and brown spices. Silky on entry, then sweet and superconcentrated in the middle, spreading out to saturate the palate with dark berry, herb and mocha flavors. The ripe tannins are already in perfect harmony with the wine's fruit. A wine of great energy and clarity, and a very impressive vintage for Ampeleia." (09/12) - 94 Pts Ian Dagata - International Wine Cellar
  • "Pretty aromas of sliced plums and nectarines follow through to a full body, with very fine tannins and a delicious finish. Very fine and polished tannins. Made from organic grapes. Drink now." (08/12) - 93 Pts James Suckling
  • "A fruity version, sporting black cherry and plum flavors shaded by vanilla and toast accents. An earthy, wild herb element emerges on the finish. Best from 2013 through 2020. 1,666 cases made. -BS" (10/12) - 90 Pts Wine Spectator
