- Score: 90 Vintage 2020 James Suckling White-peach and melon here with lots of floral and blanched-almond character from the viognier. Medium-bodied with a more savory, dry-mineral finish. From organically grown grapes. Vegan. Drink now. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
- Score: 90 Vintage 2019 Wine Enthusiast Made with organically farmed Grillo and Viognier, this crisp, savory white has aromas of fragrant spring flowers, citrus and crushed Mediterranean herbs. The racy palate doles out juicy grapefruit, yellow peach and a saline note alongside vibrant acidity. It closes on a hint of fennel seed. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
- Score: 89 Vintage 2019 Vinous Media The 2019 Rina Ianca delivers everything you’d hope for from a blend of Grillo and Viognier. It’s intensely fruity, floral, exotic and a bit tropical on the nose. There’s a glycerol weightiness and inner sweetness here, wonderfully contrasted by bright acids, zesty citrus and hints of mint. Notes of sour apple and green melon linger, along with a bitter suggestion of savory herbs. Nicely done. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
