Reviews

  • Montefalco Rosso Riserva – 2010 – 93 points – RobertParker.com

    “… an excellent wine that delivers both power and grace. Dark fruit nuances are followed by spice, barbecue smoke and black licorice.”

  • Montefalco Rosso Riserva – 2010 – 91 points – Wine Spectator

    “A pure beam of ripe black cherry is woven with black olive and cured tobacco accents in this chewy, medium- to full-bodied red. Fresh and focused, presenting a firm, spicy and sanguine finish.”
