96+ points - Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate, October 2019

Andrea Franchetti's namesake 2017 Franchetti is a blend of 60% Petit Verdot and 40% Cesanese d'Affile from a vintage known for dark and extra rich fruit. This is a gorgeous wine that opens to an inky dark appearance and opulent aromas of midnight black fruit, spice, tar and campfire ash. The heat of the vintage has contributed to the immensity and fullness of this extremely opulent wine. There is some oak spice on the close thanks to eight months in new French barrique and ten months in cement vats. This is an A-lister for sure and a true beauty. Sadly, only 4,290 bottles were made.- Monica Larner
