Critic Scores


Wine Advocate

The previous edition of this wine was a proud participant of the Valdarno di Sopra designation, but mysterious bureaucratic forces came into play with this vintage, and for whatever reason, this wine was excluded from the appellation. As a result, the 2017 Sangiovese in Anfora Petruna is part of the IGT Toscana denomination. It's too bad, I suppose, but the wine's exclusion certainly does not boost my confidence in the officials charged with deciding who is in and who is out. My reaction to this wine is overwhelmingly positive. This is a pure expression of organic Sangiovese that is farmed with extreme care, down to one kilogram of fruit per plant. The grapes are fermented in clay amphorae with daily punch-downs. The clay vessels are then sealed with steel lids, and the wine is left in contact with the skins for 12 months. The results are offbeat and provocative for sure, but the wine pleases the senses thanks to its grape-skin purity and firm mid-weight texture. The freshness and energy of the fruit comes through loud and clear, and you don't feel the heat of the vintage whatsoever. I give it my thumbs up. -Monica Larner, Wine Advocate
