Riolite Vini Sangiovese Nero d'Avola e Corvina The Blend

Intense and concentrated ruby red colour. Bouquet of ripe red fruit on a spicy background. On the palate it enhances all its freshness with just and balanced tannins accompanied by a long persistence.


Riolite Vini Scaranto Sangiovese Merlot Governo all' Uso Toscano IGT 2017

Sensations of exceptional richness, this wine reveals itself as dense and full-bodied as the essence of morello cherry pulp, blackberry and grape. Not only the concentration reveals the sublime but even the taste is soft and supple very admirable and harmonious, with tannins that curb and drains but are not bitter. A limpid wine, well calibrated and clear with nuances of pure frosting spice, the fruit evokes pulpy exceptional expressive power.

98 Points Luca Maroni

“A great wine, such that it is harmoniously balanced with its exceptional polyphenolic wealth, the softness of its enveloping taste tastes great. Then this great wine is absolutely soft, cloying not only for the smell with its balm of blackberry and menthol of a cedary pure oak. On the palate it is dense, potentially silky, with suppleness and roundness of flavour really amazingly succinct. A wonderful oenological performance, an inviolable residual oxidative integrity of a highly qualifying base. One of the best Italian reds of the year, hats off.”

Corte Al Passo Sangiovese Merlot IGT Toscana 2016

98 Points Luca Maroni 

"Sensations: exceptional richness, this wine reveals itself as dense and full-bodied - the essence of morello cherry pulp, blackberry and grape. A sublime concentration but the taste is soft and supple; very admirable and harmonious... A pure wine, well balanced with hints of spice, the juicy fruit has exceptional expressive power. One of the best red wines of the year, hats off."

93 Points Alessandro Righetti

With its richness of extract and its pleasant drink the "Corte al Passo" is a real treat! It enchants the eyes with its intense garnet red and seduces the nose with its scent of berries, cherries and spices. On the palate this Sangiovese with the addition of a small percentage of Merlot grapes is straightforward and enveloping, with sweetish aromas that recall those of the bouquet and which are accompanied by hints of chocolate and aromatic herbs. A soft tannin and a harmonious finish complete the profile
