Wine Spectator awarded two wines produced by Il Conte Villa Prandone
Zipolo, Marche 2015 – 91 score
A rich, plushly textured red, with accents of melted licorice and mocha plumping the sappy black cherry, wild sage and graphite notes. Suave, medium to full bodied and in a modern style, this features a juicy, spiced finish. Montepulciano, Sangiovese and Merlot. Drink now through 2027.
Marinus, Rosso Piceno Superiore 2017 – 91 score
A rich, medium to full bodied red in a well tailored frame, knitting saturated flavors of crushed boysenberry, pomegranate, black licorice, toast and spice to fine grained tannins and graphite laced underpinning that echoes on the finish. Montepulciano and Sangiovese. Best from 2021 through 2029.
