Villa Donoratico is a very large and complex wine that never falls into banality, showing a character deeply attached to his area of origin. Matured in oak casks, extraordinary in its drinkability and his fidelity to the type that can give way to the sensations of red fruits on the nose, and slightly spicy on the palate with a nice ending note reminiscent of licorice.

James SucklingA balanced and delicious red with currant, cherry and chocolate character. Hints of spice. Medium body, firm and silky tannins and a beautiful finish. Linear and long. Pretty now as a young wine but better in 2020.

Wine SpectatorBeefy and dense, this red delivers plum, black cherry, sweet spice and graphite flavors on a base of dusty tannins. A bit chunky and ends on the tannic side, yet there is a lot to like here. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Best from 2021 through 2035. 10,000 cases made.

Whisky AdvocateShowing a thick and well-concentrated consistency, the 2015 Bolgheri Rosso Villa Donoratico is a hearty and bold creation. Cabernet aromas of green spice and dark blackberry are the most evident. After those you get sweeter, oak-driven aromas of tobacco and exotic spice. The mouthfeel is robust and supported by firm tannins. This is one of those quintessential red meat wines. The blend here sees 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Cabernet Franc, 20% Merlot and 10% Petit Verdot. You get very good value here.
