  • Francesco Candido Duca d'Aragonna 2004

    Snoothrank:

    Tight on the nose with low smoky notes over a lightly nutty base. Bright up front with jammy wild blueberry fruits that turn red on the elegant mid-palate. The finish is a bit matte and compressed but shows a nice base of soft, gentle fruit tannin underpinning it all. This is quite refined, perhaps too refined, though with potential. 88pts Read More

  • Francesco Candido Devinis Negroamaro 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Leather on the nose with a light burnt edge to the soil and cow patty tones that feature a light floral top note. Bright in the mouth and rich with dried, lightly jammy red fruits supported by soft but present acids. Finishes with a hint of camphor and good persistence to the red fruits. 88pts Read More
