The Review:
Wine Enthusiast - 94pts
"There's depth and richness to the dark plum and cherry fruit on the nose, with heaps of fresh oregano, thyme and field flowers chiming in. This iconic estate winery located in the province of Teramo is one of the leaders of biodynamics in the region, which translates to the purity and balance of the fruit in this wine. Fleshy yet taut plum and dark cherry flavors are framed by polished tannins and fresh acidity, with more herbs chiming in on the lingering finish. It's enjoyable now but could hold well through 2028."
