  • Score: 87 Vintage 2019 Vinous Media The 2019 Primitivo Il Medaglione wafts up with a fresh and spicy bouquet of tart cherries, cloves and dusty dried roses. It’s soft-textured with zesty acids that enliven its wild berry fruits, further complemented by a twang of tangerine. This tapers off to a bitter tinge of blackberry. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 88 Vintage 2018 Wine Enthusiast Aromas of blood orange, baked plum and cherry are lifted by potpourri spice on the nose. Rounded and juicy on the palate, a succulent red fruit jam flavor is honed by racy acidity and fine-grained tannins. ALEXANDER PEARTREE Shelf Talker Full Page Review
