2016 Castello di Romitorio "Toro"

SKU #1433939 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 A blend of Petit Verdot and Syrah, the 2016 Il Toro is a muscular animal that boldly exposes dark fruit, blackberry preserves, dried cherry, spice, leather and spicy cedar. The blend is unique because it pairs the volume and spicy intensity of Syrah with the density, darkness and structure of Petit Verdot. Softer aromas of sweet fruit cede quickly to tar, grilled herb and rich plum. Pair this wine with grilled T-bone steak. This is a bold and expressive wine that opens a new chapter for Filippo Chia and his talented team. (ML)  (7/2019)

92 points James Suckling

 The pure lavender and violet aromas are very attractive here, as are the spice and herb undertones. Medium body, fine and medium-chewy tannins and an undergrowth-laden finish. Drink now or hold.  (6/2019)

The nose comes off a touch spicy, but with a beautiful level of depth. I found elements of Iron, spicebox, blackfruit. But whatI really admire about this wine is the structure. The tannin is softened, but hits every corner of the palate. This shows a tremendous amount of skill, and gives the fruit both presence and power. Really nice wine.
