90 Pts Antonio Galloni - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"The 2009 Tizzonero (Montepulciano) is more convincing then the Sangiovese. The dark fruit of Montepulciano seems inherently better suited to Cotarella's approach in the vineyards and cellar. Licorice, smoke and underbrush are some of the nuances that emerge from this fat, explosive red. The richness of the fruit carries through beautifully to the deep, powerful finish. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2014."
"La Carraia is an excellent source for well-priced wines. The estate is located in Umbria and is co-owned by oenologist Riccardo Cotarella." (06/11)
"Tizzonero is the local word for charcoal, referring both to the soil and the deep color of this 100% Montepulciano wine. It was only after much experimentation that Riccardo Cotarella was able to create this wine, an intense and complex example of the Montepulciano grape. Tizzonero is matured four months in French oak barriques, and refined six months in bottle for extra finesse. The final wine is a masterful expression of this unique terroir."
"An inky ruby-red with purple hues, Tizzonero offers aromas of wild berries, ripe blackberry and currants, deliciously enveloped by exotic notes of dark chocolate, black pepper, leather and smoky vanilla. A great wine for rich risottos and pasta, game, roast beef, steaks, cured meats and medium-aged cheeses." -Importer
"La Carraia was founded in 1976 by the Gialletti and Cotarella families. Riccardo Cotarella, one of the world's most respected authorities on the production and marketing of Italian wines, is the co-owner and winemaker. The winery owns a total of 198 acres located in the heart of the Orvieto Classico appellation. 172 acres are dedicated to the production of Orvieto Classico, the remainder are planted with Merlot, Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Montepulciano grapes."
"These wines are clearly two excellent examples of Mr. Cotarella's mastery with red grapes. La Carraia, thanks to its broad and diverse portfolio, it is able to satisfy the needs of both the casual, value oriented consumer with products like Sangiovese and Orvieto Classico, as well as the most demanding collector with a wine like Fobiano." -Importer
