2010 Rosso di Montefalco – 92 Points – James Suckling (Dec 2013)
“This is very polished and refined with polished tannins and a fruity finish. Full body and bright acidity. Drink now."

2010 Rosso di Montefalco – 87 Points – Robert Parker Wine Advocate (#208 Aug.2013)
“The 2010 Montefalco Rosso delivers some raw characteristics of crushed berry, cassis, leather and Indian spice. It’s not a wine of big complexity, but it does wash down easily and shows enough natural structure to pair with grilled sausages and onions.” ~A.G.
