90 Points - Wine Enthusiast:
"This is a substantial wine, from the deep-gold color to the vivid apricot and toasted-almond aromas, to the full body, rounded texture and lingering finish. Savory flavors like consomme, walnuts and minerals add complexity to the fruity components, so it keeps unfolding with each sip." - JG (11/1/2017)

91 Points - Antonio Galloni:
"Juicy, expressive and layered, the 2011 Pinot Noir Julia's Vineyard impresses for its silky fruit, perfumed aromatics and lovely overall balance. Absolutely nothing is out of place in a gracious, mid-weight Pinot with tons of near term appeal. A high-toned, floral-infused finish nicely balances the exuberant fruit. This is another fabulous value from Cambria." (July 2013)

91 Points - James Suckling:
"A wine with very polished tannins and ripe fruit of plums and chillies. Full body, a medium chewy texture and a medium finish. Better in 2015." - (December 20th, 2013)

90 Points - Vinous Media:
"Dark red cherry, plum, smoke, tobacco and licorice notes are laced together in the 2011 Syrah Borgo. This is an especially supple, sexy Syrah with tons of near-term appeal. The 2011 isn't especially complex or varietal, but it sure is delicious. Best of all, the Borgo is a fabulous value." - Antonio Galloni (May 2014)

91 Points - James Suckling:
"One of the most delicious whites of Tuscany, the 2014 shows lots of lemon and melon character with bright acidity and a tangy finish. The partial malolactic fermentation gives the wine a creamy texture. A blend of sauvignon blanc, traminer, semillon and petit marseng. Drink now." - (August 5th, 2015)

90 Points - Antonio Galloni's Vinous Media:
"Extremely light pink. Fresh, mineral-accented aromas of raspberry, white peach and musky flowers on the perfumed nose. Juicy and focused on the palate; lively red berry, pit fruit and honeysuckle flavors show a lithe, mineral-driven personality. On the distinctly graceful side, finishing with repeating florality and stony persistence." - Josh Raynolds (May 2016)

92 Points - Antonio Galloni's Vinous:
"The 2012 Carmignano Villa di Capezzana is soft, radiant and open-knit, all of which give considerable appeal today. There is good brightness and intensity to the fruit, along with lovely aromatic top notes of cedar, smoke, licorice and tobacco. Given its mid-weight structure, the 2012 is likely to offer its best drinking sooner rather than later. There is no reason to delay gratification in this impeccable, beautifully crafted Vino Nobile from Capezzana." - Antonio Galloni (October 2016)

"Seared citrus, lemon candies and toasty oak aromas converge on the nose of this appellation blend—a more affordable way to taste the handiwork of one of California's best Chardonnay brands. Fresh lemon paste and apple-custard flavors meet with oak and sea salt on the palate." Matt Kettmann (12/31/2019)

"Good full red color. Vibrant aromas of sour red cherry, flowers and minerals. Finely etched and very clean raspberry and candied violet flavors stain the palate but carry no excess weight. Outstanding balance and a long, sappy finish lingers long on the taste buds and the memory cells. Outstanding Rosso di Montalcino." Ian D'Agata - (Apr 2020)

93 Points - Antonio Galloni:
"Terrabianca's 2009 Campaccio is striking in this vintage. The purity of the fruit is remarkable in this vibrant, beautifully sculpted wine. Freshly cut flowers, red berries and spices all add nuance on the vibrant, pointed finish. The 2009 is all about delineation and clarity. Simply put, this is one of the better versions of the estate's flagship I can remember tasting." - Antonio Galloni
