Critical Acclaim

VN95 Vinous May 2015

"Lonardo’s 2008 Taurasi Coste captures the essence of Taurasi at its best. Sweet, layered and deeply expressive in the glass, with striking aromatic delineation, the 2008 is a real standout. Dried flowers, mint, spices, leather and licorice add attractive shades of nuance. The 2008 is showing the first signs of the complexity that is typical of Taurasi but also has enough depth to drink well for a number of years. Today, it is superb." (95 pts.)

SP92 Wine Spectator Web only – 2015

"Well-spiced and harmonious, with pureed black and red berry fruit, laced with hints of coffee liqueur, ash, black licorice and dried herb, showing sculpted tannins. Offers a dense, juicy finish. Drink now through 2025. 112 cases made." (92 pts.)

ST90 Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar Mar/Apr 2014

"Full ruby. Profound aromas of cassis, red cherry, minerals and tobacco, showing a hint of surmaturite. Lush, layered and large-scaled, with superripe flavors of red cherry, plum and leather. Finishes with fine, chocolatey tannins and very good sweet oaky persistence. Like the Vigne d’Alto, this also shows a touch of alcoholic exuberance; unlike that single-vineyard wine, the Coste bottling is made from aglianico grapes grown on clay-limestone (not volcanic) soils." (90 pts.)


Italy is famous for its powerful, sleek, and elegant reds wines from ancient growing areas with legendary names such as Chianti, Barolo, Barbaresco, Montepulciano. Italian white wines are also gaining popularity: Orvieto, Pinot Grigio, and Sauvignon are excellent examples of Italian white wines.

Wines of Italy are complex and flavorful, much like the culture that is their source and the cuisine that is their match.
