About

93+

Good bright red. Fresh redcurrant, violet, rose petal and flinty minerals on the perfumed nose. Juicy, lively and intense, with lovely clarity and sappiness to the delicate red berry, red cherry and smoky mineral flavors. Very silky on the long, ripely tannic finish. Seems to be lighter on its feet and more vibrant than most other 2011 Riserva wines I tasted this year.

93 James Suckling - Jamessuckling.com

Very pretty aromas of sweet berry, cedar and lemon rind follow through to a full body, with linear tannins and acidity. Bright and vivid finish. Delicious. Drink or hold.

Intense aromas of Mediterranean scrub, chopped herb, underbrush and eucalyptus pave the way. Smooth and juicy, the palate doles out succulent raspberry, ripe black cherry, cinnamon, vanilla and crushed mint while velvety tannins provide the elegant framework. It's already approachable but will offer wonderful imbibing for several years more. Drink through 2023. Kerin O’Keefe
