With fruit from the Contrada Chiappemacine, the 2017 Contrada C shows an unexpected floral note of blue flower, wild rose or orange blossom that lifts gently from the bouquet. The wine offers a solid and compact quality of fruit with good tension and energy locked within. This is an elegant and graceful wine with a fine but loosely knit texture. It ages in large oak casks for 18 months. MOINCA LARNER, The Wine Advocate

Violet, Mediterranean herb and red berry are just some of the aromas you'll find on this compelling wine. Silky and full bodied, the palate delivers raspberry compote, crushed Marasca cherry, star anise and flinty mineral alongside taut, refined tannins. Fresh acidity and a mineral vein add tension. (97) KERIN O'KEEFE, Wine Enthusiast
