Ratings & Reviews

91 Points - Vinous:
"Moderately saturated ruby. Ink, smoke, plum and red berries dominate the inviting nose. Then youthfully chewy but fine-grained, boasting long, clean, savory flavors that bring the aromas to mind. This strapping Montepulciano is relatively light on its feet." Ian D'Agata - (Sep 2019)

Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Hints of mineral and fresh herb lace the flavors of Asian pear and lemon zest flavors in this light-bodied and crisp white. Drink now. 800 cases made." - AN (Issue Web Only - 2017)
