Check all the reviews here:
Campo San Giorgio 2015 - 95 points
Wow. Wonderful pureness of fruit here with blueberry, slate and stone aromas and flavors. Full body. Tight tannins and a layered finish. Shows focus and richness. Drink after 2022, but already very impressive."
Pelago 2015 - 92 points
"Very polished and pretty red with intense berry, plum and oak character, yet it pulls it off at the finish. Medium body. Currant and blackberry aftertaste. Drink or hold."
Lacrima di Morro D'Alba Fonte del Re 2018 - 91 points
"Fruity and flavorful with blackberry and tar flavors. Medium body, light tannins and a fruity and fresh finish. Drink now"
Centovie Montepulciano d'Abruzzo 2015 - 92 points
"A ripe and attractive montepulciano that shows dark cherries, blackberry compote and vanilla. Full-bodied, round and chewy with lots of essence-like fruit. Drink now."
Centovie Pecorino Colli Aprutini 2017 - 92 points
"The otherwise shy pecorino grape doesn’t usually give wines of this intensity, but here there are notes of guava peel, dried citrus and spices. Full-bodied with a hint of candied fruit, but the acidity does well to pull this through. Drink now."
Vellodoro Pecorino 2018 - 92 points
"Lemons and limes, juniper berries and herbs. The medium-bodied palate is nicely layered and swathed in a sheen of bright acidity and crunchy stone fruit. Drink now."
Plenio Riserva 2016 - 93 points
"Another very intense and impressive white from this producer that shows dried citrus, lemon meringue and apricot pie. Full-bodied and very flavorful, but with bright acidity that provides a welcome contrast. Drink now."
