2019 Wine Advocate 92 Feb 2022 Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 92 Vintage 2019 Wine Advocate I love the sleek retro label design on the Fossacolle 2019 Riesci. This blend of 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Petit Verdot and 20% Merlot is a terrific and easygoing wine, with massive drinking appeal. This 2019 expression shows much better results than we've seen in past editions, and I notice that the blend of grapes has changed over the years to include more Cabernet Sauvignon and exclude Sangiovese. This is a universally food-friendly wine that could cozy up to a veggie burger or a grilled steak, depending on your culinary outlook. The wine is redolent of dark fruit and blackberry, and there are plenty of rich plummy tones that segue to dark spice, mesquite and a touch of smoked cedar. I suggest drinking any bottles of this 3,600-bottle release young, to take advantage of that pretty intensity Stefano Bambagioni and the folks at Fossacolle decided not to make Rosso di Montalcino in 2017 because yields had been greatly reduced by the hail and heat stress of the vintage. This allowed for greater control and fruit selection when making the 2017 Brunello di Montalcino reviewed here. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
