    "Dark fruit, black cherry and some plummy fruit (with even a touch of dried prune) are planted inside the Lungarotti 2015 Torgiano Rosso Riserva Rubesco Vigna Monticchio. You feel the hot vintage and the 2015 sunshine in this rich, open-knit red wine. There is lots of fruit with spice, tar and cured pipe tobacco. The wine shows extra softness and richness on the close. Some 35,000 bottles were created."

    "This has a shy nose that eventually reveals scorched earth, ground clove and a whiff of menthol. The firm palate is lean in terms of fruit richness, offering raisin, star anise and a note of powdered sage. Grainy tannins leave an astringent finish."

    "Dark cherries, plum compote, dried sage, lavender and crushed stones. Dull body, medium-chewy tannins, a good line of acidity and a tight finish. Drink now."
