93 Points, James Suckling
This is a lighter style of Super Tuscan, with seductive cherry, licorice, blackberries and dried herbs. It’s way-too-easy to drink and understandably gets 90+ points every vintage but in the ideal, hot 2017 vintage, the ‘Tre’ got its highest score since the 2011 vintage. James Suckling who gave the wine a 93, called it ‘full-bodied, structured and rich with fine acidity and freshness”. This is a knockout Tuesday nighter.
94+ Pts, Wine Advocate – 94 Pts, Vinous – 94 Pts, James Suckling
Dark purple in color with bursting black fruited aromas, a hint of sage, tobacco and figs. With a little of age behind it, this still shows incredible freshness, slowly unfolding an orchestra of silky blackberry fruits, with creme de cassis, a hint of baking spice and toasted hazelnuts. It’s balanced and delicate and incredibly intricate, an exciting wine that Parker’s Wine Advocate says, “inspired a large generation of enthusiastic younger vintners today especially in the Roccamonfina subzone—one of the most exciting areas in the bustling and up-and-coming regions of Southern Italy.”
This is a fun little wine people are going to like. The Luca Paretti Sparkling Rose is a beauty and is a sensational value for the price. The big reason it flies under the radar at this price is due to the inaugural year of the Prosecco Rose designate, which this wine misses on an account of not being made with 85% Glera. No matter, this Merlot/Raboso blend embarrasses most of the Prosecco Roses I tasted– offering superior aromas of wild strawberry, melon fruit and a hint of jasmine. The bubbles are super tiny and refreshing making this one way too easy to drink.
