About the Winery:
Grosso Agontano is the top-of-the-line Montepulciano wine from Garofoli. It is made only in the best years, when the harvest in the Piancarda vineyard is considered to be of superior quality, taking the higher classification of Cònero DOCG. The wine’s namesake, the grosso agontano, was one of the most important silver coins of medieval Italy, originally minted by the Maritime Republic of Ancona in the 13th century.

Ratings & Reviews

93 Points - Jeb Dunnuck:
"A smaller production cuvée that's also all Montepulciano, the 2015 Cònero Riserva Grosso Agontano reveals a deep purple hue as well as terrific notes of blackcurrants, black cherries, licorice, and roasted herbs. Beautifully textured, with integrated acidity and fine tannins, it's another balanced, seamless wine in this lineup that has loads to love." - Jeb Dunnuck (6/24/2020)

92 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"A pure expression of Montepulciano, the 2015 Conero Riserva Grosso Agontano opens to a thick and heavy center of gravity and a dense core of black fruit aromas. This is a structured wine with a firm tannic backbone that gives support to large-scale aromas of blackberry preserves, cherry confit, toasted nut and barbecue smoke. This wine ages in barrique for 12 months, and you definitely feel the toast. Some 15,000 bottles were made." - Monica Larner (9th Apr 2020)

90 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Round and balanced, this medium- to full-bodied red features dusty tannins that are well-knit to flavors of ripe black raspberry and damson plum jam, with dried sage and sandalwood accents. Smoke-tinged finish. Drink now through 2027. 1,250 cases made, 125 cases imported." - AN (Jun 30, 2019)
