Ratings & Reviews

93 Points - Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
"This beautiful Recioto di Soave (a dessert wine made with Garganega grapes) opens with a deep amber color and gorgeous aromas of candied fruit, butterscotch and lightly toasted almond. The mouthfeel is smooth, silky and long-lasting. Very nice." - M.L. (12/31/2011)

90 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Rich and layered, with accents of nut and iodine playing off of honeyed apricot, peach cobbler, candied grapefruit zest and fleur de sel flavors. Mouthcoating, but balanced by focused acidity, with a pure peach note echoing on the finish. Drink now through 2020. 100 cases imported." –AN (Oct 15, 2012)
