International Wine Review (92)- "Dark ruby red. Reveals an earthy, toasty oak and dark plum bouquet. Good volume and balance in the mouth with firm acidity and flavors that repeat the bouquet–hint of mushroom complementing plum and other dark red fruit, finishing with very good length. A 60% Merlot based blend with 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Cabernet Franc sourced from the 1.0 ha Cjarandon vineyard and aged 2 years in 60% new Allier oak barrels. "
Italian Wine Report (92)- "A blend of 60% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc; matured in 60% new barriques, 40% used barriques. Bright, medium deep ruby red; aromas of black currant, black cherry and lavender. Medium-full with a layered mid-palate, this has very good acidity, excellent ripeness, impressive persistence and well-integrated wood notes. Notable complexity and typicity; enjoy over the next 5-7 years."
Wine Advocate (91)- "A blend of mostly Merlot with smaller parts Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, the Ronco dei Tassi 2015 Collio Rosso Riserva Cjarandon boasts a deep, dark color and concentrated aromas of black fruit and plum. The backbone of the wine is quite acidic and not particularly thick or fleshy. In the end, this wine delivers lots of pointed power and focus over a lean-bodied mouthfeel with freshness and herbal notes on the close. Pair it with a fatty meat, such as a typical Italian holiday dish of cotechino sausage and lentils. Exactly 5,938 numbered bottles and 300 magnums were released. I tasted bottle number 3,032."
