96+ points Monica Larner (Wine Advocate): "[$95 list] Made with 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Cabernet Franc, the Giorgio Meletti Cavallari 2019 Bolgheri Superiore Impronte gets its fruit from a steep and inaccessible vineyard parcel (measuring 1.5 hectares) at a breezy 350 meters in elevation with black schistous soils. I've been there and can assure you: It is out of this world. Thick forests stand at the rear and open views onto the glimmering Tyrrhenian Sea open to the front. This is indeed a very special wine with etched black fruit, pencil shaving and crusted stone. The tannins are dusty and dry. With only 5,000 bottles made, Impronte is fermented in cement vats, and the wine is later racked over to barrique for 18 months. Drink: 2023-2038. (Jul 2022)"

17.5/20 points Jancis Robinson: "70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Cabernet Franc. Ageing: 18 months in barriques. Transparent ruby – already looks evolved. Distinctive and lively – there is real life here. I wonder whether it’s organic? Nice savoury, saline touch at the end. Real beginning, middle and end to this wine. Drink: 2022-2032. (Mar 2022)"
