Recioto della Valpolicella La Roggia 2018 – 94 points and 1° place: “Dark ruby with violet, it opens on the nose to nuances of plums, delicate cinnamon, rum pot, a hint of cherry pie, followed by dried violets and powdered dark chocolate. On the palate, a clear core and juicy twist, it opens with precision, fruity and with creamy melting, long persistent and dense, with a hint of woody and outstanding hydrocarbons in the finale.”
Amarone della Valpolicella Sant’Urbano 2017- 95 points: “A brilliant ruby-red wine with a drop of violet. On the palate: sugared violets, distincly floral hints, followed by cherry, peach and a cinnamon aftertaste. With tremendously juicy tannins, it reveals a lot. Fruit melts and as it becomes structured it builds up in multiple layers with a long finish that evolves superbly.”
