  • Score: 90 Vintage 2017 James Suckling Aromas of ripe red and black berries with a touch of forest floor, black cherry and mushroom. Medium-to-full palate with thick, fruit-coated tannins and a lightly spicy finish. A hint of burnt caramel comes through at the end. Montepulciano, cabernet sauvignon and merlot. Drink now.

  • Score: 92 Vintage 2016 Vinous Media The 2016 Velenosi Offida Rosso Ludi displays an impenetrably dark purple hue in the glass, and offers scents of ripe cherry, blueberry, confectioner’s spice and dried florals. Silky textures are contrasted by tart red and black fruits, minerals and zesty acids, displaying remarkable balance and poise for such a large-scale wine, as savory herbal tones develop toward the close. The finish is long and structured; fine tannins clench the senses with youthful grip and a slight twang of citrus accentuates the inner violet floral tones. This is very well done, a blend of 85% Montepulciano with equal parts of Cabernet and Merlot, aged 18 to 24 months in French oak of various sizes. Shelf Talker Full Page Review

  • Score: 91 Vintage 2015 Wine Advocate This is the estate's top-end blend of Montepulciano (85%), Cabernet Sauvignon (8%) and Merlot (7%). The Velenosi 2015 Offida Rosso Ludi is a wine of considerable brawn and power. It delivers thick texture that wraps heavily over the palate, with the spice, smoke and tobacco of 18 months in new barrique. This is one of those super exuberant vintages in which the primary fruit comes out on top, no matter how much oak the wine sees. Here's your steak-and-potatoes wine from Le Marche. Some 35,000 bottles were released. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
