Great success for our wines at the Great Wines of Italy, the tour that James Suckling dedicated to the best Italian wines. 3 cities where we have been protagonists together with over 230 wine producers.
Carlo Cappuccio, our Sales Director, attended the event to offer wine lovers in the Chicago, New York and Miami stops a taste of Liano 2016 and Tauleto 2013: two icon wines of our company, two Sangioves with great structure and elegance.
90 points up wines, exceptional locations, and Italian food: excellence was the fil rouge of a tour that sold out, both among private individuals and among operators in the sector.
Wine awarded by James Suckling:
Resultum Sangiovese Rubicone IGT 2012
Really fresh on the nose with vibrant raspberries, licorice, tar and spices. Medium-bodied and very crunchy. The acidity really lifts the bright fruit and firm tannins.
Romagna DOC Sangiovese Riserva 2016
A peppery, meaty Sangiovese that shows pretty dried herbs, cedar and blackberries. Medium body, fine and silky tannins and a medium-chewy finish.
Sangiovese Rubicone IGT 2013
Lots of cinnamon and spice character showing from the wood, but there’s also pretty violet and lavender character lurking beneath the ripe blue fruit. Full-bodied and chewy, entrenched in dark fruit and powerful tannins.
Sangiovese Cabernet Sauv. Rubicone IGT 2016
I like the darkly spiced, herbal edge to this, which suggests holly, bark, tea leaves and brambleberries. Quite soft and round, but with enough grainy tannins to carry the rich dark fruit.
Chardonnay Sauvignon Blanc Rubicone IGT 2017
This is certainly a ripe white, but it’s very drinkable with its lime cordial and apricot-pie character with some clove undertones. Full-bodied, fruity and delicious.
