Chianti Rufina Riserva on JamesSuckling.com!
It’s undeniable that, in recent years, have increased dramatically the newspapers and the social media more or less specialized in reviewing wines from around the world. In front of that host of experts, it has become common to find redundant opinions focused on famous producers, emblazoned production areas, popular bottles, excellent vintages.
In front of the global wine scene, it is difficult to get noticed by a small company devoted to pack quality wines without producing copious amounts of bottles.
However, when professionals industry watchers have the opportunity to sample the products of our small company in the Chianti Rufina, they remain struck by the excellent value for money.
The JamesSuckling.com site was launched in October 2010 with the will to act as a site founded not on the classic tasting notes but also of video content with “key wine figures around the world”, because, as stated on the site itself “today’s wine drinker deserves more than just written reviews and criticism. They need to see with their own eyes the place, the people, and the rating process”.
In addition to reviews of Suckling, the site also has reviews of Jessica Harnois, president of the Canadian Association of Professional Sommeliers.
James Suckling is an American wine and cigar critic and former Senior Editor and European Bureau Chief of Wine Spectator as well as European Editor of Cigar Aficionado. Suckling is internationally regarded as one of the world’s most influential wine critics and one of the most experienced critics of vintage cigars.
The rating scale is the classic by 100 points. Suckling says that “A wine that I rate 90 points or more is outstanding. It’s a wine I want to drink a glass of and is an outstanding purchase. If I rate a wine 95 points or more, it is a must buy a bottle and I want to drink it in its entirety! If I rate a wine less than 88 points, it might still be worth buying but proceed with caution”.
