We are happy to announce Robert Parker and the Wine Advocate, in its coverage of ”Italy: The Tuscan Ten” featured Fico Wine 2015 and awarded the wine a rating of RP 92+

This award is a significant achievement for the creator of Fico, Filippo Corsini, of whom we are all very proud and this award is a testament to his vision and his determination, his love for the natural world and his intuition regarding what could be achieved.

We, through this further accolade, are even more determined to continue on the path that Filippo forged, to continue his interpretation, his own personal vision of winemaking, to continue a holistic bio-dynamic approach to the making of wine, to continue his contemporary interpretation of tradition. Filippo continues to leave his mark.

“The 2015 Fico is a delicate and pure expression of Sangiovese made according to careful organic and biodynamic principles. The wine bears a striking resemblance to Burgundian Pinot Noir both in approach and quality. It opens to a pale garnet color with bright ruby highlights. The bouquet starts slowly to reveal wild berry, blue violet and blanched almond. In the mouth, the wine presents energetic verve and beautifully balanced freshness. This wine will stand out to those looking for beautifully ethereal Sangiovese. Monica Larner”
