  • Score: 90 Vintage 2020 Vinous Media The 2020 Five Roses is airy and sweetly scented, presenting an understated display of white smoke giving way to nuances of ripe peach and spice. It’s soft and enveloping, with an attractive inner sweetness and a melon fruit profile, as brisk acids and a hint of ginger balance nicely. This tapers off clean with notes of chamomile, honeyed herbal tea and the slightest tug of tannin. As pretty as this is today, I can’t help but feel that six months to a year of cellaring will unlock further depths. The Five Roses is a blend of 90% Negroamaro and 10% Malvasia Nera di Lecce.

The palate is cohesive and lifted in tones of strawberry, melon and citrus, with a gentle floral kick on the midpalate and a gentle cherry skin note on the lingering close.
