Thumbs up for Sapaio and Volpolo.

Podere Sapaio’s 2015 vintage gets top marks from James Suckling.

Great news to coincide with our return from our summer vacation and the height of Podere Sapaio’s harvest: James Suckling, the world renowned wine critic, has given Sapaio 2015 a score of 96/100, and Volpolo 2015 a score of 93/100.

“We are extremely proud, to say the least, of such a score, especially since it comes from one of the most influential wine critics today; a narrator of wine, that throughout his career has tasted at least 150,000 wines and whose opinions attract the interest and respect of lovers & collectors across the entire wine industry. ”

On his website Suckling had this to say about SAPAIO 2015:

“So much fresh pressed violet and blackberry character as well as iodine, quartz, slate and tile. Full body, grippy yet linear and polished tannins, fine acidity and a long, minerally finish. So refined. Drink in 2020 “

While he said this about VOLPOLO:

“Fresh  blackcurrant  character  as  well  as  minerals, jasmine and some eucalyptus. Full-bodied with grippy  tannins and a juicy, driven  finish. Drink in 2020. ”

As we reach another milestone, we eagerly await what the future holds.
