Ratings & Reviews:

94 Points, #75 Top 100 Of 2021 - Wine Spectator
"A sleek and racy red, with sculpted tannins providing fine definition for the tightly knit flavors of cherry and black raspberry, Mediterranean scrub, star anise and graphite. It’s full-bodied and dense, with the flavor range slowly unfurling in the glass and on the palate.” - AN (Mar 2021)

94 Points - James Suckling
"Savory aromas of dried currants, black olives, dried leaves and violets, ink and dried oysters. Volcanic ash. It’s medium-to full-bodied with chewy tannins and plenty of tar and bitter black-tea notes. Nicely developed. Not so much fruit now, but will continue to age well. Drink or hold." (Nov 2020)

92 Points - Vinous Media
"The 2013 Taurasi Cinque Querce is dark and intense, showing crushed black cherries and dusty dried roses, as wild herbal and earth tones evolve, along with a hint of animal musk. On the palate, velvety textures coat the senses, giving way to a tightly wound core of black fruit, minerals, and fine tannin, as the 2013 flexes its structural muscle. The finish is long and youthfully dry, gripping the senses, yet with airy floral tones and a hint of pretty blackberry fruit. This is in need of a few years to come together, but it has all of the raw ingredients to excel through medium-term cellaring." - Eric Guido (May 2020)
