Costasera 2015 – 95 pts.
A little reductive at first, but opens beautifully to reveal violets, blueberries, licorice, citrus, oyster shell and orange rind. So velvety and polished, but with real depth and structure. Medium-to-full-bodied with delightful fruit and a long finish. Drink in 2021.
Masianco 2018 – 90 pts.
A fresh and easy white with sliced lemon and lime character. Medium body. Crisp finish. Screw cap.
Bonacosta 2018 – 89 pts.
Tangy and bright with sliced-apples, cherries and hints of watermelon. Light body. Fresh finish. Drink now.
Rosa dei Masi 2018 – 88 pts.
The candied fruit is a little obvious here with lots of ripe raspberry fool. Full-bodied and dense. Some drinkability, but rather heavy-handed. Drink now. Screw cap.
