Vintus Wines are Celebrated in James Suckling’s Top 100 Wine Reports!

James Suckling recently compiled his lists of Top 100 Wines from all over the World.  Not only did Vintus appear in almost all of the country-specific lists, we appear 2x in the Top 100 Wines of the World with two beautiful wines out of Tuscany. The Tenuta Luce 2019 is the #28 Wine of the Year garnishing 99 points. Suckling says “Sophisticated aromas of lead pencil, graphite and blackcurrant. Hints of black olives and herbs, too. Full-bodied, yet tight and deep, with super precision and intensity to the tannins. Incredible balance of structure and finesse to this.” The 2020 Petrolo Boggina B comes in at #48 Wine of the Year, which is a huge honor for white wines from the region, as they are not as oft-celebrated as their red counterparts. Suckling says “Lots of lemon curd and wax with mustard-flower undertones. Turns to Brazilian lime. Hints of fresh bay leaf, too. Full-bodied, tangy and beautiful. Really long and delicious. Peanuts and white sesame seeds. Superb. Unique and very Tuscan. From organically grown grapes.”
