Tre Bicchieri goes to the 2015 Roma Rosso Edizione Limitata, a blend of Montepulciano, Syrah and Cesanese with great concentration, still displaying marked notes of wood, and a juicy, fruit-rich finish.

The 2016 Nero Buono Baccarossa is well-crafted and a classic example of the winery's style. Notes of black berry fruit, tobacco and sweet spices give way to a full-bodied and fruity palate.

The original farm was founded in 1920 by the current owner's grandfather Manlio, and it was carried on by his father Armando. The winery was created in the 1990s when Felice Mergè gave the family farm an entrepreneurial shake-up, transforming the production site in Monte Porzio Catone from a local to a 'national' winery. Today Poggio Le Volpi is a benchmark in the Lazio territory, producing wines with strong personality stemming from the volcanic soils where the grapes are grown. Malvasia di Candia, Malvasia del Lazio, Trebbiano, Cesanese and Nero Buono anchor the range.

The Bolgheri Superiore Sondraia just keeps getting better. The 2015 proves excellent thanks to a perfect aromatic combination of red and black fruit, lovely toasty notes that call up spices and Mediterranean herbs accompanied by balsamic flashes and a pleasantly ‘green’ streak.

The 2014 Burdese, Cabenet, features lovely varietal expression, with crisp, healthy fruit brought out by the skillful use of oak.
