"A big and juicy red with lots of ripe fruit, chocolate and spice character. Full-bodied, velvety and rich. Lots of fruit flavors. Drink now."~J.S.

Vinous Media 89
"The 2013 Poggio alla Guardia is terrific in this vintage. Bold, juicy and expressive, the 2013 offers tons of intensity in its blue and purplish hued fruit, licorice, sweet herbs and spices. Drink this round, enveloping wine over the next few years. This is a terrific showing from Rocca di Frassinello's entry-level offering."~A.G.

Wine Advocate 88
"Here's a wine for informal occasions and family time around the dinner table with pasta salad or slices of beef roast. The 2013 Maremma Toscana Poggio Alla Guardia sees sharply delineated aromas of wild berry, cherry and white almond. The wine is only aged in concrete vats, so the primary fruit characteristics are absolutely untouched. Fifteen-year-old vines are used to make this wine."~M.L.

Wine Spectator 88
"Lean and athletic, exuding cherry, raspberry and licorice flavors, shaded by leather and tobacco notes. Just a tad dry on the finish. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Sangiovese. Best from 2017 through 2023. 12,500 cases made."~B.S.

Wine Enthusiast 88
"Aromas of cedar, plum, red currant, clove and menthol unfold in the glass. An easy-drinking blend of 45% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Sangiovese, the juicy palate delivers black cherry, blackberry, ground pepper and licorice alongside soft, polished tannins. Drink through 2018."~K.O.
