  • Score: 90 Vintage 2018 Vinous Media The 2018 Poggio alla Guardia is soft, succulent and very easy to like. A burst of ripe plum, chocolate, licorice and sweet spice gives this fleshy Sangioveto/Merlot/Cabernet Sauvignon blend tons of allure. Drink it over the next few years. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 86 Vintage 2018 Wine Spectator Graphite and leafy, balsamic aromas and flavors mark this sinewy red, which is balanced to the dry side yet not overly astringent, with dusty tannins on the finish. Sangioveto, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now. 9,000 cases made, 3,000 cases imported. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 91 Vintage 2017 James Suckling This is a compote-dominated red with raspberry fool and candied strawberries. Full-bodied and round with plenty of ripe fruit and sturdy tannins. Drink now. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 88 Vintage 2017 Wine Enthusiast Made with Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, this has aromas of dark fruit, scorched soil and cooking spice. The forward palate evokes dried black cherry, star anise and vanilla alongside smooth tannins. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 88 Vintage 2016 Vinous Media Rocca di Frassinello's 2016 Poggio alla Guardia is fresh, floral and fruity, all qualities that make it a good choice for drinking over the next few years. Black cherry, lavender and mint are all nicely lifted in this generous yet fragrant Maremma red. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
