LE DIX DE LOS VASCOS

2021 Chile Colchagua Valley
95 Points

A ripe and fruit-expressive nose showing good generosity and complexity. Quince, ripe cherries and currants with subtle tobacco, dark spices and chili chocolate. Full-bodied and pretty expansive on the palate with fine, dusty tannins melting into the persistent finish. Really impressive length. It goes on and on. Juicy, firm yet really polished ...– Z.S.

2020 Italy Sicily
94 Points

The nose starts bubbly and sweet, with aromas of black plums, cherry and vanilla, then turns savory but still crackly, with notes of pencil shavings, pepper, graphite and leather. The palate doubles back toward juicy fruit with figs and more plums, then shifts again toward that sanguine earthiness, but textured tannins and almost silky acid unifies the whole. —D.C.

NOCERA DOC

2022 Italy Sicily
92 Points

EDITOR'S CHOICE; The fresh, cool nose features notes of slate, white pepper, crunchy cherries and licorice. On the palate, acid electrifies the cherries and that faint medicinal quality, while firm, austere tannins and a deep, primitive earthiness quietly announce more serious intentions.  —D.C.

MAROCCOLI SINGLE VINEYARD SYRAH, SICILIA MENFI DOC

2017 Italy Sicily

The berries headline the palate, while dense, imposing tannins and invigorating acid bolster a latent spiciness.  —D.C.
