2018 James Suckling 89

GAVI DEL COMUNE DI GAVI MASSERIA DEI CARMELITANI 2018 Score: 89   Some white flowers, sliced pears and citrus. Fruity and fresh, but a little simple. Drink now. Screw cap.

2016 James Suckling 91

BARBARESCO LA CASA IN COLLINA 2016 Score: 91   A more floral, fresher Barbaresco that shows bright blueberries, fresh herbs and fruit tea. Mediumbodied and fruity with a lithe backbone of tannins and a soft finish. A more reserved style. (June 2019)

2018 James Suckling 93

  PIEMONTE CHARDONNAY FOSCHE 2018 Score 93   Lots of butterscotch and yoghurt character here, in addition to cloves, but plenty of attractive dried peach and citrus fruit behind that. Fullbodied and serious with lots of oiliness and density on the palate, but enough acidity to carry this through to a taut finish (June 2019)

2015 James Suckling 92

  NIZZA LA LUNA E  I FALO' 2015 Score 92   This has a fascinating bouquet with fresh violets, bright herbs, licorice, lavender and citrus. Medium body, vibrant acidity and a medium-chewy, structured finish. (June 2019)
