La Porta di Vertine in the U.S.

A blog devoted to La Porta di Vertine in the U.S.

Here’s a score and a tasting note that slipped through the cracks (that’s why we hadn’t posted until now; see all accolades to date here).

This is what Italian wine authority and expert taster Ian D’Agata had to say about the 2009 Chianti Classico Riserva when he tasted it in 2012 (before merging with Vinous Media):

90+ points

Bright red-ruby. Deep aromas of redcurrant, licorice and lead pencil. Starts off floral but turns rather sullen in the middle, hinting at mineral-driven flavors of red berries, dark cherry, licorice and underbrush. The smooth finish shows sneaky, subtle persistence.
