Tinata 2015, Wine Advocate by Robert Parker

The 2015 Tinata represents a blend of 70% Syrah and 30% Grenache with fruit grown in the southern part of Coastal Tuscany near the beachside resort town of Capalbio. This Rhône-inspired Tuscan blend is aged (70%) in barrique for 16 months and the rest goes into egg-shaped cement tanks. This lovely wine offers rich texture and depth with medium to full-bodied layers of dark fruit. Black currant and summer cherry are followed by smoke, spice and chocolate. This warm vintage shows extra concentration and richness.

Terra di Monteverro 2015, Wine Advocate by Robert Parker

The 2015 Terra di Monteverro is 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Cabernet Franc, 15% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot, all aged in barrique (with 60% new oak) for 20 months. Each parcel is fermented separately in stainless steel before the blend is produced. Offering a slightly more direct and approachable style, this wine delivers the extra richness and density that you can expect of this beautifully warm and luminous vintage. The fruit is dark and rich with black currant and dried plum, backed by exotic spice and toast.

Monteverro 2015, Wine Advocate by Robert Parker

The 2015 Monteverro comes out with gangbuster intensity and richness, keeping the wine very much in line with our expectations of this profound and exuberant vintage. I tasted bottle number 3,505 of 17,821 made. The estate’s flagship wine is composed of 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Cabernet Franc, 15% Merlot and 10% Petit Verdot all aged in oak (with 80% new barrique) for two years. This wine is lavishly layered with dark fruit, dried cherry, tar, smoke and exotic spice. Those aromas just jump right out at you, never letting up in intensity or complexity.

Terra di Monteverro 2015, James Suckling

Blueberries, eldeberries, violets and Chinese spices make for a very pretty nose. Medium body, tightly worked tannins and a deliciously spicy and mineral finish.

Chardonnay 2015, James Suckling

This shows sugar-coated apples, vanilla, spices, lemon curd, dried pineapples, caramelized papaya, cream and pie crust. Full body, medium acidity and layers of fleshy tropical and stone fruit. Finishes long and creamy.
