Sangiovese

2017
93 — James SucklingExcellent combination here of dried red cherries and herbs with brighter notes of orange peel and lemon meringue. Medium body, inward-looking tannins and a polished acid/fruit balance. Very suave. Drink now.

Rosso

2017
93 — James SucklingAromas and flavors of dark berries with chocolate, as well as walnuts and spices. Medium to full body. Flavorful finish. Bigger style to this, but a delicious, juicy wine. Drink now.

Fontarca

2017
91 — James SucklingA very fresh viognier with none of the soapy and kitschy character this grape often shows when grown in warmer climate zones. In fact, it has a fresh, peachy personality and lively acidity that drives the clean, dry finish. Drink now.

Bosco

2015

2014
95 — FalstaffBrilliant ruby with slightly brightening edge. Appealing nose with notes of blueberries, tobacco and black pepper. Rich, dense tannin, acts but notharsh, well integrated, powerful, showing firm pressure, amazing juicy for such a full bodied wine.
