The 2019 Tiberio Cerasuolo is wonderfully fresh and perfumed, showing depths of smoky minerals on the nose, giving way to notes of ripe strawberry and wild flowers, with a hint of crushed limestone and chalk. On the palate, silky textural depths are offset by saline-minerality and brisk acids, as notes of cherry with a hint of orange citrus wash across the senses. The finish is long, with a twang of tart red berry and hints of wild herbs, almost salty, and begging me to take another sip. (Eric Guido, Vinous, May 2020) — 13 days ago
Violet, dark forest earth, and pepper on the nose, hints of velvety tannins, strawberry on the front quickly followed by dark spices, light cherry at the end. — 3 days ago
Dry fruits, fresh and flowery ... Simple, dry and beautiful with an smooth mineral finish that was completely unexpected on a wine without a cork... Brief and maybe not complex but really enjoyable. Big big value for the price ... — 15 days ago
Full body. Long legs - stretching to the max. Big, deep, ripe fruit, dark chocolate mixed in. Interesting on the nose - you might think you’ll fall over when taking a proper sniff. Surprising depth for an Italian wine but then again it’s a montepulciano. Definitely goes well with red meat and ..let’s say chocolate deserts. — 5 days ago
Crushed black cherries, blueberry skins, sage, stone dust and hints of animal musk, all come together to form a deeply satisfying bouquet on the 2017 Tiberio Montepulciano. On the palate, soft, round textures give way to a twang of tart wild berry fruits, complemented by saline-minerals and then firmed up with grippy tannins. The finish is long and structured, yet still packed with spicy primary fruits and remaining fresh through residual acids. I know Cristiana isn’t a big fan of her warmer vintage wines, but the 2017 has the stuffing to improve in our cellars while still pleasing today. — 25 days ago
Dave loves this one and wanted me to note it!
Gold color. Honeysuckle, oily, waxy medicinal smell that others have noted = correct. — 11 days ago
