  • Score: 92 Vintage 2019 Wine Enthusiast Fragrant and savory, this opens with aromas of ripe yellow stone fruit, white spring flowers and citrus. Reflecting the nose, the tangy palate doles out juicy apricot, yellow peach, ginger and grapefruit before a bitter almond close. Crisp acidity lifts the rich flavors Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 90 Vintage 2019 Wine Advocate The Campo alle Comete 2019 Vermentino opens to a bright and sunny bouquet with honey, Golden Delicious apple, orchard fruit, ripe pear and a touch of sea salt. You could say that this wine shares DNA with the delicious white wines of Campania, as the owner of this estate also owns Feudi di San Gregorio in Avellino (southern Italy). This is an estate with enormous experience when it comes to making white wines. There are similarities here, especially in the mild creaminess of the mouthfeel and the way in which the wine spreads smoothly over the palate. This is a terrific Vermentino measured both in terms of fragrance and freshness. Some 25,000 bottles were made. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 89 Vintage 2018 Wine Enthusiast White spring-flower, yellow stone-fruit and almond aromas form the nose. On the bright palate, crisp acidity accompanies yellow peach and grapefruit before a saline finish. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 88 Vintage 2018 Wine Advocate It's funny how this wine shows some of the freshness and tonic intensity that you get with a Campania white. Maybe I'm thinking of Campania because that is the tasting I did immediately before this group of Bolgheri whites. It's also surely because Antonio Capaldo is the owner of this estate and Feudi di San Gregorio in Campania. The Campo alle Comete 2018 Vermentino is an easy expression to drink with fried calamari or insalata di mare. You taste the green zesty nature of the Tuscan grape on the close. Some 30,000 bottles were made. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 87 Vintage 2018 James Suckling Sliced green pears with lemons and apples. Medium body. Simple finish. Drink now. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 89 Vintage 2017 Wine Enthusiast Aromas of citrus blossom and white grapefruit lead the way on this savory white. The aromas follow over to the juicy palate together with apricot and a tangy hint of saline. KERIN O’KEEFE Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 87 Vintage 2017 Wine Advocate The 2017 Vermentino sees some lees contact to achieve extra structure and complexity. Two harvests are made to create this blend: one when the grapes are lighter in color and the other when the fruit is a golden yellow. There is about a ten-day difference between the two. The results here show a thin and streamlined approach with light citrus and dry grass. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
