Wine Spectator 2017

Bruce Sanderson's reviews on Wine Spectator (06.2017)

Ampeleia Costa Toscana - 92 pts
Pure rose, cherry and strawberry aromas and flavors signal this elegant red, backed by a solid structure. Shows fine complexity and length, but needs decanting to enjoy now. Cabernet Franc and Sangiovese. Drink now through 2023. 1,666 cases made.

Unlitro Costa Toscana - 90 pts
This is light-weight, yet intense and concentrated, boasting cherry, herb and earth flavors. Picks up a saline element on the chewy finish. Alicante Nero and Carignano. Drink now through 2023. 8,333 cases made. 

Alicante Costa Toscana 2015 - 87 pts
A spicy version, this offers cherry and raspberry flavors, along with black pepper and light herb notes. Firm and juicy, with earth and tar details lining the finish. Drink now through 2020. 415 cases made.

Cabernet Franc Costa Toscana 2015 - 89 pts
This red has good roundness to the raspberry, wild herb and tobacco notes. Turns leaner on the finish, echoing tobacco details and light tannins. Drink now through 2021. 415 cases made.

Carignano Costa Toscana - 91 pts
This is fresh, boasting floral and raspberry aromas and flavors, matched to a supple, juicy texture. Ends with a long, stone-inflected finish. Drink now through 2020. 415 cases made.
