  • Score: 89 Vintage 2016 Wine Spectator Round and ripe, this medium-bodied red offers a rich base note of date and dried fig layered with light, chalky tannins and flavors of herbed black olive and mesquite smoke. Zesty finish. Negroamaro. Drink now through 2024. 1,666 cases made, 100 cases imported. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 90 Vintage 2015 Wine Enthusiast Made entirely from Negroamaro, this riserva offers a striking balance between elegance and rusticity. Brandied cherry and blackberry aromas carry the nose alongside a savory hoisin sauce note. Tangy red fruit broadens out the medium-bodied palate, with a grip of tannins carrying it through to the dark cocoa-dusted finish. ALEXANDER PEARTREE Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 90 Vintage 2015 Wine Spectator A harmonious red, medium- to full-bodied and creamy, with herbed green olive, baked currant, loamy earth and woodsy spice flavors, finely knit to dense tannins that firm the plush finish. Best from 2021 through 2029. 416 cases made, 25 cases imported. –AN Shelf Talker Full Page Review
