  • Score: 90 Vintage 2022 Vinous Media The 2023 Rosso Piceno Superiore Brecciarolo is hauntingly dark, with herbal-tinged blackberries and cedar shavings forming its bouquet. This is soft textured yet lifted in feel with juicy acidity and crisp wildberry fruits that cascade throughout. The 2023 leaves a cocoa tinge and gently grippy tannins while finishing long yet pleasantly fresh. This is a blend of 70% Montepulciano and 30% Sangiovese. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 91 Vintage 2021 James Suckling Dark cherry and berry aromas, together with notes of flowers, such as violets. Medium-bodied with a tasty palate of violet-tinged fruit and grainy tannins that together provide a tight, fruity finish. Drink now. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 88 Vintage 2021 Wine Enthusiast Reserved at first, this wine develops with time and shines with aromas of black plum, anise, clove and pressed blue flowers. Dense and concentrated on the palate, a wine that defines the term bold with flavors of black cherry compote, warmed spices and fine and polished tannins. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 90 Vintage 2020 James Suckling Slightly meaty nose with some dark earth, roasted spices and dark chocolate to the black cherries. Juicy and tight with a medium to full body, showing chewy tannins and a sappy finish. Drink now. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 89 Vintage 2020 Vinous Media The 2020 Rosso Piceno Superiore Brecciarolo bursts from the glass with a spicy mix of crushed black cherries, grilled herbs and ashen stone. This is soft-textured yet juicy in character with rosy inner florals that resonate over a core of ripe Montepulciano fruit. This leaves a staining of concentration yet maintains wonderful energy as a burst of residual acidity keeps the mouth watering for more. The Velenosi Rosso Piceno Superiore represents tremendous value. This is a blend of 70% Montepulciano and 30% Sangiovese. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 86 Vintage 2020 Wine Enthusiast Plump and forward, this is this an easy and fun wine. Upfront aromas suggest cherry pie filling, blackberry jam and loads of baking spice. The palate is packed with luscious fruit notes both fresh and preserved, with a hint of cherry cola on the finish. Supersoft tannins give the wine a rotund finish Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 91 Vintage 2019 James Suckling Give this a minute or two of air to bring out the chocolatey oak and ripe berries and cherries on the nose. Medium-bodied with the same mix of fruit and oak, lightly chewy tannins and a firm finish. Needs another year to mellow a little. Try from 2023. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 91 Vintage 2018 James Suckling Fresh black fruit on the nose and palate with hints of blueberries and minerals. Full-bodied, with a sturdy but well integrated tannin support. Long, spicy finish. Not complex, but all in balance. Drink or hold. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 90 Vintage 2018 Vinous Media The 2018 Rosso Piceno Brecciarolo is dusty and perfumed, mixing blackberries with dried flowers and hints of animal musk. This is silky-smooth and luxurious in feel, casting a polished display of mocha-tinged fruits across the palate. There’s an unexpected weight here, kept in check by lifting acidity and a hint of sour citrus, which paves the path to a note of tart woodland berries toward the close. While a bit shorter than anticipated, the Brecciarolo finishes fresh and classically dry, leaving only hints of licorice and spice to linger. This blend of 70% Montepulciano and 30% Sangiovese has a sheen of oak that dominates to a certain degree, yet it’s implemented quite nicely. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
