Wine Enthusiast über: Sogni e Follia Rosso di Montalcino

-- Wine Enthusiast: Aromas of red berry, blue flower, leather and an earthy whiff of truffle waft out of the glass. Reflecting the nose, the taut, linear palate shows juicy Marasca cherry, baking spice, camphor and wild herb alongside lithe tannins and fresh acidity. It's savory, with youthful tension and while ready now it will offer several years of enjoyment. It's a fantastic Rosso. Drink through 2022. 93/100


Parker über: Sogni e Follia Rosso di Montalcino

-- Parker: Similar to the Brunello Amore e Magia, the more accessible Podere le Ripi 2016 Rosso di Montalcino Sogni e Follia shows a beautiful dark ruby color with purple highlights. The bouquet is also very direct and raw, and even a touch carbonic in character. This adds to the wine's overall intensity and brightness. Red cherry, raspberry and bitter almond rise with strength and determination. Fruit for this wine comes from a six-hectare property on the west side of Montalcino, in the Camigliano or Pian delle Vigne area, with sandy limestone soils and some alluvial elements. This Rosso is aged in large oak casks and then goes into cement for a few months for final integration. Some 25,000 bottles were made. The wine was bottled in September 2018 and hit the market in January 2020. 92/100
