92 for the nose that is ethereal and with an incredible fruit, but the palate is a bit watery, given the price tag I think you can be a little judgmental about this ;-) overall a lovely wine, lacks a touch of depth on the palate but other than that a joy to drink

undoubtedly a well made wine, maybe to young to drink at this stage? I felt the grape was overwhelmed by oak at this point and overall quite bold for a nebbiolo

pretty bottle, incredible consistency if you think how many bottles they produce, this bottle will benefit from 5+ years cellaring imho

quite disappointing, pale color, pretty nose but very shy with hints of sweetness, dry and thin palate

I really like this rosso, a simple but lovely wine, perfect expression of it's terroir, elegant, easygoing, great with food and well balanced!

impressive langhe nebbiolo, so yummy and easy to drink, lovely nose, perfect balance underlying sweetness on both nose and palate, gentle, elegant, I am sure this will be great to drink for many years ahead

a great example of Rosso di Montalcino, very elegant, ethereal nose, very pure Sangiovese, it suffers a little on the palate the dreadful wet vintage leaving a sense of emptiness, but I love the style, reminds me wines with Gambelli's touch

in a great drinking spot, fruit, sous bois, tobacco, all you want from a mature sangiovese, still very fresh and vibrant

on the fruit side, a simple wine that talks about the grape, no aging in wood, indigenous yeasts, organic farming and this was actually the 2019 vintage

very nice, drunk quite quickly, hint of wood at this stage, but sure will well integrate, a good bottle for the cellar

good but not great, drunk over 2 days, following a bottle of Tignanello 2017 that was fantastic, this was quite shy and lacking depth and character in my opinion, still a good wine, but not exciting

lacks depth, a bit of vegetative notes, very simple, no complexity, no vibe at all, a bit disappointed and think it lacks the acidity to last in time

somewhat evolved for a 2010, notes of earth, quite average imho, not impressed on the nose, palate is a bit more yummy, even though lacks the acidity to stand time, happy I have only one bottle left in the cellar

Enjoyable bottle, nice not great, biodynamic producer and it's always nice to drink a wine from a producer that has respect for nature, the wine is somewhat alive, and can probably benefit from time in the cellar

riduzione che nel bicchiere svanisce lasciando una nota minerale, da decantare se bevuto ora, o lasciare in cantina e ritornarci tra 5+anni

This has a lot of upside, modern in style, a joy to drink now, but with time it can truly blossom, think at peak after 2026+
Cupano's wines need time to fully blossom

lovely acidity, very long on the palate, dense, lacks overall complexity and not sure it will gain in with more cellaring, but it might gain elegance with time, overall easy to drink and very enjoyable, curious to see where this will be in 5+ years

really enjoyed this simple but unique wine, 2016 drinking very well now, and better than 2017 or 2018 in my opinion. Notes of spices, white pepper dominate the nose, the palate is softening out and all very balanced.

little low on acidity and short on the palate, a bit disappointed given this is one of the top italian whites, but nether the less a good bottle, gentle nose, very delicate

light reduction on the nose, but very focused and the oak is felt very little, skyrocketing acidity that leaves a lovely long lemon zest finish, I liked this wine a lot, very balanced and egocentric in a good way, looking forward to try this again in 2022+

boom! simply a great wine, nose and palate perfectly balanced and lovely to drink now, but I am 100% sure it will be awesome in 5-10 years time! lacks territoriality in my opinion, but who cares, it's simply a great wine

damn young....! wait 2023-25 as this bottle is closed right now, very austere, traditional but damn young. Possibly a 93-94+

I might have been unlucky, but barnyard is the dominant theme in this bottle. Too much bret that dominates the aromas, not for me

on the nose reminds me of a Riesling, but overall lacks complexity, depth, simply average and arguably overpriced

if you like Sangiovese you will love this bottle. Purity and Identity are the 2 words that come at first to mind... from the nose it is so obvious this is Sangiovese, very elegant (as this grape should always be), clean and with a pure fruit, the color is gentle and elegant as the palate, with a very soft tannin, for me this is pure elegance and I am very keen to see how this will drink in the next 5 years

I had this bottle twice now, and both times it was drunk over a window of 24 hours. The quality/price here is insane, the wine is extremely sharp, fresh and fruity, maybe not rich of acidity, but its such a joy to drink right know and with time in the glass everything stays in place, a very easy going wine for the summer, something you don't want to miss on, the perfect wine for everyday pleasure, balance is perfect and the palate is yummy... what can I say.. I bought a truck load of it!! had to give it a 93 for the PQR

this wine needs 1h+ decanting to come in place, but once it does...wow! the style here is simply unique... razor sharp, clean, elegant with nose that tends to sweeten with time, rich of fruit, strawberry right at the start, that leaves space to floral notes and spices, very sexy and truly unique to the region, on the palate tannin is still live, but gentler than a year ago and with decanting all comes in place, lots of balance and finesse, possibly 96+ with time right now 95-96 imho

PnP, usual notes of reduction, but lovely underlying complexity, needs more time to reach peak, but I cannot resist opening and drinking a bottle of this wine with pasta alla norma!

lovely balanced, fruit still there, tannin structure is gentle, but still present, good bottle, but not great... an nose somewhat evolved for the age.. I mean, this is 16 years old and drinking great now, however not sure it can cellar another 10 years. I have a few bottles left and will enjoy them in the next 5 years. In the glass nose changes with time from cherries to earls gray tea, very typical of the region

nose quite a bit of reduction, good underlying structure, tend to think this needs 1 year + more in order to settle and come blossom. I tend to prefer 2017 that is quite funny as this was a very hot vintage in Tuscany, but for me the 2017 is a better vintage. Anyhow, one of my favorite whites from Tuscany.
