Hello All. It's been a while since we emailed you the last time. Despite the last few months have been tough we have been also blessed with a number of proud moments that we are happy to share with you.
Those who know us are aware that we do not like to show off, but the extraordinary feedback received by the "Mama's old school Omelette Sandwich" that we serve at our wine lounge made us feel proudly on top of the world.
OOPS LUI (He) did it again!
Following the great accomplishment received by the previous vintage, our LUI 2016 encountered the Favour of Wine Spectator
"Fresh and incisive, with black currant, black cherry, cedar and bell pepper flavors picking up a touch of oak spice. The backbone of tannins is dense and refined, while bright acidity drives the long aftertaste."

LUIANO CHIANTI CLASSICO GRAN SELEZIONE 2016 "OTTANTUNO"
93 POINTS - TASTING NOTES: Rose and lavander aromas sing out in this fragrant red. Cherry, black currant, juniper and sage flavors add depth as this cruises to lingering aftertaste of fruit, wild herb and floral notes. The vibrant structure lends support. Best from 2021 through 2037. B. Sanderson, October 2020
LUIANO CHIANTI CLASSICO RISERVA 2016
88 POINTS - TASTING NOTES : A mélange of cherry, plum, cigar box and black tea flavors ride the wave of chunky tannins in this muscular red. Iron and leather accents peek through as this winds down on the dusty finish. Best from 2022 through 2038. B. Sanderson, October 2020

LUIANO & "GAMBERO ROSSO"
2 RED GLASSES AGAIN...
"Fine nella sua articolazione olfattiva il Chianti Classico RIserva '16, a ben anticipare uno sviluppo gustativo leggiadro e saporito. Più denso ma piacevolmente succoso il Chianti Classico Gran Selezione '16 "Ottantuno". Solido il Lui '16, blend a base di cabernet sauvignon, merlot e colorino."
