Tasting Notes

The name Riserva del Don was chosen to reflect that this wine is produced using the best quality Sangiovese grapes from the estate. In Southern Italy, from whence the family originated, tradition held that the “Don” (property owner) was to be gifted a small, but premium part of each vintage.

The wine is only produced in the finest vintages (none was made in 1992, 2002, 2005, 2010, 2013 or 2014) from 100% Sangiovese grapes grown on the family estate. The Sangiovese is aged 24 months in a selection of French and Slavonian oak barrels.

Expect a deep, lively, ruby colour while the nose reveals a complex, balanced amalgam of ripe fruit, dense berries, red rose and pungent balsam. Maturation in oak has softened the tannins somewhat, but they are still impressive, serving to extend the palate and contribute to the texture without being harsh or drying. Further bottle age is recommended to bring out the fine quality characteristics of this vintage.

Food Pairings

Pairs with poultry, white meats, red meats, lighter style pasta dishes and hard yellow cheeses.

Third Party Reviews

Made entirely with Sangiovese, this opens with aromas evoking underbrush, wild berry, botanical herb and a whiff of exotic spice. Elegantly structured, the palate delivers Marasca cherry, pomegranate, star anise and a hint of salt framed in polished tannins. It closes on a coffee note. Drink through 2023. 90 Points Kerin O’Keefe Wine Enthusiast May 2019
