  • Score: 88 Vintage 2016 Wine Enthusiast Made entirely of native grape Cesanese, this has subtle aromas of tilled soil, baking spice and a whiff of dark-skinned fruit. The firm palate offers black currant, licorice and bitter almond alongside assertive, rather raspy tannins. KERIN O’KEEFE Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 87 Vintage 2016 Vinous Media The 2016 Amarasco, a varietal Cesanese, opens slowly with a nuanced display of musky black and red currants and savory herbs. This is soft and fleshy in feel, gaining traction through its tart blackberry fruit and hints of sour citrus. A mix of fine tannins and residual acids lingers as this tapers off long yet understated and bitter. Some cellaring may help to unlock further depths, but I’m not convinced.
