    November 24, 2016 - Very tight and somewhat lean. opens in the glass, but never great. A dad vintage, the winemaker says, I probably agree, although the domaine have preserved some ripe fruit, that keeps insisting at the end. If you have the choice, grab another vintage...

    November 5, 2016 - 2016 Villa d’Este Wine Symposium - Kelly, Alan and Kevin's excellent adventure; 11/3/2016-11/12/2016 (Villa D’este, Lake Como, Piedmont, Milan and Frankfurt): Fresh medium expressive nose, delicate sweet red fruit, cherry and strawberry, a hint of green, light caramel and mineral. Light concentration, hollow middle, austere and a bitter short finish. For my palate, the 13 is the worst vintage since at least the 97.

    May 25, 2016 - Light, fresh, bright, elegant, soft, forward and user friendly style of wine with sweet, cherries, licorice, flowers and plums in its core that carry though to the fresh, red berry, polished, soft textured, finish.

    April 28, 2014 - Ruby in color with flowers, licorice and sweet, fresh red and black plums, the wine is the essence of silky elegance with its soft, polished textures. Lacking the density found in the best vintages, the fruit is pure, clean, sweet and fresh, leaving you with an impression of ripe, clean red fruits. Blending 53% Cabernet Franc and 47% Merlot, the yields were 19 hectoliters per hectare. The wine reached 12.85% alcohol with 3.7 pH. 60% of the harvest was placed into the Grand Vin. 92-95 Pts
