Falstaff Tasting Top Toskana 2021
"A pretty white with sliced apples, light honey and some hot-stone undertones. It’s medium-bodied with a solid core of ripe fruit and a minerally and fruity undertone. Pure chardonnay."-James Suckling 2020. Score 91/100.
"A blend of three-fourths Chardonnay and one-fourth Sauvignon Blanc, the Barone Ricasoli 2018 Torricella is fresh and buoyant with stone fruit, pear, Golden Delicious apple and toasted almond. This is a bright and accessible white wine from a predominately red wine corner of Tuscany. However, the limestone-rich soils of the region create good conditions for this carefully fragrant white wine. Enjoy it with a panzanella, a typically Tuscan bread salad soaked in tomato, onions and herbs"-Monica Larner/The Wine Advocate 2021. Score 90/100.
