Expert Reviews

90 Points ‘Brunello clone’ shouts the bold black and white label. Coriole was one of the early movers with sangiovese, if not the first, but this clone is a recent arrival. It has good colour and, at least in this vintage, offers a balances of varietal fruit and tannins. Much promise. James Halliday Wine Companion 2010 Jun-09

92 Points More classic in style than last year’s…Nutty almond and cherry chocolate bar flavours with a sniff of leather. Medium bodied, fresh…its furry tannins tend to rein it all in..There’s something tasty about this refreshing red. It has us intrigued. Campbell Mattinson & Gary Walsh Big Red Wine Book 2009/2010 May-09
