“Beautiful aromas of ripe fruit and plenty of tar, together with flowers. Full body. Rich and velvety. Long, flavorful finish. Just the right amount of wood to furnish chocolate undertones.”
— James Suckling, Nov 2019
“Bright ruby. Ripe but lively and easygoing aromas of strawberry, milk chocolate and licorice. Sweet, suave and fine-grained, with a distinctly creamy character to the red fruit and milk chocolate flavors. Well-integrated acidity keeps this plush Cannonau from coming off as heavy or one dimensional. Closes with very good length.”
— Ian D’Agata, Feb 2020
