James Suckling, 91 points
“Fresh and vivid with dark berries, blackberries and some crushed stones and violets. Medium body, firm tannins and a lightly chewy finish. Drink or hold.”
Unreal! O’Lillo has always been a stellar buy, but at 50% OFF it’s jaw-dropping. Super-Tuscan at “daily drinker” pricing?
Seriously though, back up the truck, Invino clients! $90 a 6-PACK delivered! A classic blend of Sangiovese, Cabernet, Merlot, and Syrah, with terrific freshness and depth, this outclasses SO MANY other red wines in this price range -- too many to count!
Riccardo Baracchi has continued the family tradition by cultivating the vines and producing world-class wines, as the family has done on their property since 1860! Riccardo, together with his son, Benedetto, and SUPERSTAR oenologist and agronomist, Stefano Chioccioli, have identified the ideal soils for each grape variety, and honed in the winemaking on this property, all while keeping their pricing incredibly fair. Stefano Chioccioli is one of the most sought-after consultants in Italy, earning over 100 Gambero Rosso "three glasses" - their highest honor - and both Wine Spectator and Wine Advocate have awarded his wines with 100-point scores, along with countless 90-99 point scores. Needless to say, no expenses have been spared here, and it shows where it counts -- in the glass!
We promise you will be astounded by the quality here. We have about 56 cases to sell today -- we hope it's enough! While it lasts!
