Col d’Or­cia At a tast­ing of the es­tate’s older wines back to the 1960s in Fe­bru­ary, I was im­pressed with the di­rec­tion of some of their younger wines and an in­creased fo­cus on aro­matic pre­ci­sion. This 2012 shows the es­tate on top form, with its beau­ti­ful poise and bal­ance. 97 Drink 2020-2029

Colle­mas­sari, Pog­gio di Sotto Each time I visit Pog­gio di Sotto I am struck by its beau­ti­ful location in the favoured Castel­n­uovo dell’Abate zone. The thought­ful wine­mak­ing team, in­clud­ing Luca Mar­rone, have pro­duced an exquisitely fine-tuned, pure and pre­cise San­giovese. 96 Drink 2022-2031

Fat­toi One of the hid­den gems of Brunello, in the prime location of Pieve Santa Resti­tuta. Ar­ti­sanal in its ap­proach, Fat­toi pro­duces firmly styled San­giovese that man­ages to be ap­peal­ing at the same time. 95 Drink 2020-2027
