Toscana Rosso Baron Ugo Monteraponi 2015 (750ML)
94 Points, Monica Larner, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "I had tasted this wine from barrel in 2018, and here is my final review from the bottle. The 2015 Baron'Ugo is 90% Sangiovese with 7% Canaiolo and 3% Colorino, and the wine denomination was changed from Chianti Classico Riserva to IGT Toscana. This is a deep and charming wine that needs a few more years of bottle aging to flesh out further and put on volume. The nose is solid and packed with budding complexity in the form of black cherry, dark rose and wet earth. This wine speaks with a heavy Tuscan accent, with silky vowels, soft tones and "H" sounds in the place of harder "C's." The "Hanaiolo" and "Holorino," especially, produce a beautiful "bouhet."
92 Points, Antoni Galloni, Vinous: "The 2015 Baron'Ugo, the estate's top Sangiovese-based wine, is bright and perfumed, with lovely red berry, spice, mint and floral character. Medium in body and silky, the 2015 has much to offer. Crushed flowers, mint, game, licorice and tobacco add a touch of Sangiovese wildness throughout. The aromatics could be a bit more focused, and yet there is tremendous character and personality here, an element of rusticity notwithstanding."
93 Points, James Suckling: "Beautiful aromas of mushrooms and dark fruit with some wet earth and leather. Medium to full body. Silky tannins with tobacco, berries and spice. Earthy and decadent in the aftertaste. From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold."
95 Points, Kerin O'Keefe, Wine Enthusiast: [Cellar Selection] "Made in high-altitude vineyards, this fragrant red is fresher than most of the region's wines from the hot 2015 vintage. It opens with enticing aromas of red berry, pressed rose, pipe tobacco, wild herb and underbrush while the radiant, linear palate delivers sour cherry, red currant, star anise and white pepper. Bright acidity and taut, fine-grained provide balance and support. It's still youthfully austere but will age beautifully."
