Wine Spectator, 94 Points 

"Still marked by vanilla and new oak, but this has loads of blackberry, black cherry and plum fruit. It's rich without overextraction, boasting dense tannins, superb balance and a long finish. Pugnitello, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. To be released in 2022 for Vigorello's 50th anniversary. —San Felice Vigorello Non-blind Retrospective (April 2021). Best from 2025 through 2050." 

James Suckling, 93 Points  

"Very attractive blackberries and currants with hints of chocolate and fresh herbs, such as lemon grass. It’s medium-bodied with fine tannins and a fresh finish. Will age nicely, but why wait?" 

Decanter, 93 Points  

"The 35% of Pugnitello - a thick-skinned grape planted in Alberese chalky soil - gives this vintage a bracing character, while Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot bring structure and suppleness. Clove and black pepper dominate the nose with cassis aromas and flavours enhanced by graphite minerality. Full and dense, this Vigorello flows... velvety and refreshing. In the context of the lean 2018 vintage, this has great concentration with ability to age. 'A surprising wine, it is recomposing itself in bottle' said Leonardo Bellaccini, winemaker and production manager for San Felice." 

Winemaker Notes: 

"Dense, garnet-flecked ruby. Releases a rich medley of red currant, sweet spice, and pungent underbrush. Warm and rich in the mouth, with expressive tannins and smooth hints of vanilla. Perfect with grills and roasts, particularly game and lamb, and aged cheeses." 

Alcohol: 13.5%
