  1. Dirupi Rosso di Valtellina Ole 2018
    Dirupi Rosso di Valtellina Ole 2018
    Heady scents of alpine herbs, char, red cherry and menthol. Succulent, sour cherry, cranberry, gummy tannin and more of the asphalt and then some dark, earthy character rolling tight and compact. Very fresh and pure-feeling with strong sense of regional character. (93) MIKE BENNIE, www.winefront.com.au

    There's plenty to like here for both young modern drinkers who enjoy fresh, lightly styled reds, as well as nebbiolophiles who dig the aromatics of Nothern Italy's most prized grape. It has a beautiful ruby red hue and upon first whiff throws up plenty of bright new season strawberry, florals aplenty and a pinch of zesty spice. It's light and vivacious with just a sprinkling of powdery fine tannins. If you are drinking this in warmer weather, which I would highly recommend, keep it on the cooler side and serve with BBQ snags and charcoal chicken. Alex D

  2. Dirupi Valtellina Superiore Riserva 2014
    Dirupi Valtellina Superiore Riserva 2014
    Tre Bicchierie Winner 2018 - Gambero Rosso
    Grumello sub-zone - Single Vineyard Dossi Salati 530-570 metres above sea level
    This wine is simply remarkable. Intense aromatic profile of red fruits rose petals and subtle spice waft from the glass co-mingling with some oak-derived vanillin that make a heady preface to what follows on the palate. And what follows is all good. A silky, medium-to-full weight frames flavours of strawberry and mulberry laced with delicate spice. It's elegant and exceptionally pure but the underlying intensity keeps coming. Structural elements are not overt but they're there and carry the wine across the palate journey to a riveting finish.
