Full-bodied with plenty of concentration, but still shows a very sturdy, tannin backbone and punchy acidity, to drive this through to a long finish. Drink in 2021. collapse

Musky and mineral accents complicate the aromas of raspberry, flint and violet on the enticing nose. A step up in refinement and precision from Poggio al Granchio, with a thrilling silky texture to the tactile flavors of raspberry, red cherry, crushed stone and cinnamon. Wonderfully pure, boasting very fine tannins and lingering sweetness, this is a polar opposite of the rounder, richer, riper Poggio al Granchio. collapse

This wine is softer and more accessible than the other two single-vineyard expressions I tasted from Val di Suga. The fruit is dark and saturated with summer cherry, plum, spice and tobacco. This wine ages in new French barrique for 24 months. Some 10,000 bottles were made.- ML collapse

Ample sweet fruit midpalate offsets the structure, while the finish echoes the tar and soy notes. Best from 2023 through 2040. 830 cases made, 200 cases imported. — BS collapse

On the structured elegant palate, fine-grained tannins support sour cherry, red currant, ground clove and espresso alongside bright acidity. Drink 2021–2028. collapse
