Critical Acclaim

SP95 Wine Spectator Jul 31, 2018

"Aromas of pine, wild rosemary, black currant, iron and tar hold court in this dense, inky red. The tannins run roughshod on the finish, so cellar or tame with grilled beef or lamb. Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. Best from 2021 through 2033. 1,833 cases made." (95 pts.)

RP94 Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 31st Oct 2017

"Made with Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot, the 2013 d’Alceo shows an inky dark appearance with impenetrable color saturation. This is another gorgeous wine from an estate I admire deeply. The fruit intensity peels off this wine with elegance, power and intensity. With similar momentum, the wine glides clear over the palate with silky and long intensity. There are some pungent or volatile notes (similar to what you find in the other wines), but they are a plus, not a minus. They give support and intensity to the wine’s persuasive aromatic performance. This wine needs more time to unwind in the cellar." (94 pts.)

JS96 JamesSuckling.com Friday, October 20, 2017

"Strawberry, plums, chocolate and green pepper frame this beautiful red. So much black currant too. Full-bodied with round, mouth-coating tannins. So much going on here. A blend of cabernet sauvignon and petit verdot. Better in 2021." (96 pts.)

VN100 Vinous Jan 2018

"Readers should do whatever they can to get their hands on a few bottles of the 2013 d’Alceo. Seamless and voluptuous in the glass, it is an epic wine that embodies all the qualities that make these terraced vineyards in Panzano so special. Blackberry jam, crème de cassis, plum, licorice and spice meld together in the glass, but it is the wine’s textural intensity that elevates it into the realm of the profound. The 2013 has been nothing short of moving on the two occasions I tasted it recently." (100 pts.)

Tuscany

There are few regions as picturesque as Italy's Tuscany. And there are few regions that produce finer wines, either. Tuscany is home to legendary wine regions Brunello di Montalcino and Chianti, among others, where the red wine grape Sangiovese is king. It's also home to "Super Tuscans," a category of Tuscan wines that don't officially fall within the Italian wine classification system.

Wines of Italy are complex and flavorful, much like the culture that is their source and the cuisine that is their match.
