- Score: 89 Vintage 2019 Vinous Media The 2019 Pinot Nero L'Eterno seduces with a darkly alluring bouquet that mixes sweetly spiced plums with violet candies, balsam herbs and hints of smoke. Its silky textures usher in a polished yet pure display of red and hints of blue fruits, all lifted by cooling acidity. Firm, grippy tannins come forward through the long yet youthfully structured finale, as this tapers off a bit chewy and primary. Cellaring for another year or two is recommended, or at least an hour of decanting. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
- Score: 90 Vintage 2017 Wine Spectator Fragrant and expressive, with baking spice and sweet cured tobacco notes leaping from the glass, accenting the flavors of macerated black raspberry, licorice and iron. Fine-grained, taut tannins firm the finish of this lightly mouthwatering, medium-bodied red. Best after 2022. 500 cases made, 100 cases imported. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
- Score: 87 Vintage 2017 James Suckling Although this is certainly a jammy pinot noir, there’s surprising intrigue to the tar, ash and menthol character. The rawness of the tannins, burly dried fruit, and lack of any conceivable pinot character, however, means this remains nothing more than a passing curiosity. Drink now. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
