- Score: 96 Vintage 2020 James Suckling La Roggia, a single vineyard. The adage oft-used here is that the quality of an estate is deemed by the Valpolicella and the Recioto. A tour de force, with 120 grams of residual sugar effortlessly balanced by dense extract, the tannins therewith and the voltage of acidity that, rather than being volatile, is derived from the site and picking windows. Coffee bean, mocha, dark cherry and licorice root. Yet it is the textural detail and morass of power and sweetness, somehow refraining from being cloying due to the freshness, that tells the real story. Scintillating length. Circa a mere 6,000 bottles. The only wine at this estate crafted with barrique. Drinkable now, but best from 2025. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
- Score: 95 Vintage 2019 Vinous Media Sweet violets expertly complement medicinal blackberries and cherries, lavender and confectioners spice as the 2019 Recioto della Valpolicella Classico La Roggia blossoms in the glass. There's a lovely inner sweetness along with bright acidity to balance its ultra-ripe yet remarkable fresh red fruits. This finishes incredibly fresh and long with hints of kirsch and sweet herbs that linger on. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
