|Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
I am loving the complexity on this Ripasso. Aromas are pronounced with smoky and savoury notes along with a presence of baking spice, a slight peppery note (coriandor and carraway seed), and fruit notes of ripe berries. The palate is totally different , however! Ripe red berry holds the focus here with tame tannins, moderate (balanced) acidity, a medium plus body and a long off-dry finish. Enjoy now with braised leg of lamb! Tasted July 2016. @sommsosa | bespoketastings.ca

Sweet and delicious dried fruits and great balance. This is an epic pizza wine that I'd recommend buying by the case. Tasted November 2016. 90 points. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca

Smells divine! Perfumey black cherry, blackberry, hint of bell pepper, chocolate and baking spice. Not only does this wine please the nostrils, the palate is a happy camper too! Lots of dark berry, hint of forest floor, chocolate deliciousness. Medium bodied and easy drinking. I'll be keeping an eye out for this one. Yum!
|Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Smoky cherry and leather on the nose with some dried herbs and spice. The taste isn't what you expect going in with lots more up-front fruit than your typical ripasso. Behind the fruit is the leather from the aroma a quite a lot of black pepper and spice. Very fine tannins and a zippy cherry finish.
|Sharon Prionas rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:|
Smokey cherry nose and smooth palette, medium to strong tannins.
|A voluptuous, supple Italian red wine with layers of black cherry, anise, coffee and smoke aromas and flavours. This wine will cellar well. - Community Wine Reviews|
