Ampeleia's new releases are intriguing. The three 2014s - the Alicante, Cabernet Franc and Unlitro - all show the challenges of the growing season. The wines spend six months in cement and are bottled early, which means there is a certain frankness and transparency that is impossible to miss. In the challenging 2014 harvest, the wines are on the lighter side and also slightly vegetal. I find more appeal in the Kepos and especially the flagship Ampeleia, which is terrific in 2012. (Antonio Galloni)

"The 2012 Ampeleia is shaping up to be fabulous. Deep, layered and incredibly vivid, the 2012 presents an intriguing mélange of sweet plum, black cherry, spice and new leather. The Ampeleia is the most overt of the wines, but it also happens to be the most complete. Today, the flavors are naturally quite primary, but all the 2012 needs is further time in bottle. Ampeleia is mostly Cabernet Franc and Sangiovese, with a healthy dollop of other red grapes." 94 points Antonio Galloni (Vinous Media)
