93 pts. Cameron Douglas; 90 pts. Decanter World Wine Awards.
Delicious aromas of raspberry, strawberry and black Dawson cherry with hints of violets. The taste is all dark fruit cake and plum, with hints of spice and savoury aromas. It’s full, complex and delicious on the palate. Great drinking now but your patience will be rewarded by cellaring for 5+ years.
Cherry red colour with ruby glints. Aromatic and complex aromas presage ripe fruit, toasted wood and hints of smoky laurel. Full-bodied palate, well-balanced tannins/acidity. A well-integrated wine with a long and silky finish. Tempranillo with a little more ooomph than Rioja - delicious!

"A bright expressive style, this Barolo features strawberry, cherry, floral and cut hay aromas and flavors. Iron and tobacco accents flirt around the edges as the dense matrix of tannins emerge on the lingering finish. Best from 2023 through 2040" - Bruce Sanderson
90 pts. Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate.
Ruby red colour with aromas of blackberries, leather, cherries and red currant with a touch of liquorice and vanilla. Sweet and persistent tannins.
2018 is one of the two most favourable vintages for Chianti Classico from 2014-2018, 2016 the other, yielding the best balance between complexity of aromas, power and richness.
Highly extracted. Reminiscent of plums, figs, almonds, black pepper, brown spice. Complex with flavours that all come together harmoniously. The ripe sweet fruit is beautiful on the palate, but finishes dry. Drinking well now, although with big tannins.
Due Bicchieri (2 Glasses), Gambero Rosso
The direct and natural descendant of the renowned Capo di Stato, this deep ruby red wine is the continuity in the blending tradition of the estate Loredan Gasparini.
Della Casa's nose is initially characterized by a hint of marasca cherry, joined to a flaour of cassis. The olfactory range is noteworthy, rich in aromatic nuances, well intergrated with the oak, not preponderant, and it shows spicy hints of ripe green pepper, laid down on a musk background.
