Feudo di Mezzo is the largest cru in the appellation, a homogenous character, but with clear qualitative variations - much like one could say of Clos Veugeot in Burgundy. From the best parcels - such as our "Quadro delle Rose" - it betrays a dusky character, autumnal tones in its cedary-spicy bouquet. Always the fist to be harvested, Feudo di Mezzo is also always the one readiest to open up and generously deliver itself. Of all crus it is supremely silky, its tannins suave, its bouquet darkly debonair. I love it as it ages effortlessly, its crepuscular nature picking up light as it ripens. Poultry, pork, game, lasagne, braised meats.

James SucklingLots of ripe-strawberry character to this! Full body, soft and velvety tannins and a long and rich finish. A generous wine for the vintage. Enjoy.

Wine SpectatorFresh and aromatic, with grippy tannins framing focused flavors of sun-dried cherry, sandalwood and mandarin orange peel, with hints of rich, loamy earth. This finely balanced version opens nicely in the glass. Drink now through 2026. 500 cases made.
