94 points James Suckling: "So much beauty to this red, which shows dried rosemary and thyme, glazed dark cherries, cranberries, orange zest, fruit tea and hibiscus. Medium-bodied and extremely refined and minerally throughout. The acidity and laser-guided tannins are the driving force. Drink now. (11/7/19)"

93+ points Monica Larner (Wine Advocate): "The 2017 Il Frappato is a beautiful expression of the grape that shows grace and an almost fragile disposition. This is a lean to mid-weight red wine with a bright bouquet that veers toward red berries and wild rose. The effect is balanced and elegant in a manner that few red wines from Sicily can achieve, making it a nice pairing for a Sicilian lentil soup and some freshly baked bread. The wine shows the color and the floral aromas of a Pinot Nero, backed by the power of the warm Sicilian climate. Some 35,000 bottles were produced. Drink: 2019-2025. (Oct 2019)"
