Decanter Bronze Medal, 88 pts

"Tropical fruit, vanilla oak and butter nose. The palate is powerful and quite concentrated with a mineral core and decent finish." - Decanter World Wine Awards 2019

"oyster salt, pepper and candied fruit, beautiful and complex, minerality and breadth, very young and yet expert, great wine in a favourable vintage and well picked in its best way. 95 pts" - Andrea Gori

"its bright straw is lashed by a great light, the scents capture candied pink grapefruit peel, toasted hazelnuts, honey of sulla, memories of sage and helichrysum. Aromas that enrich and lift the initial fresh taste and make way for a savoury coat in discreet ascent. Final persistent path with renewed mineral hints." - Fiorella Chimenti, La Repubblica

"A lovely creamy nose of ripe citrus, the palate has lots of fresh lemon confit, great grip and bite, hints of orange and herb." - Decanter World Wine Awards 2017

"Energetic nose with notes of peach blossom, grapefruit juice and orange peel. I like the subtle perception of withered yellow flowers dominating the background. Medium body, vibrant acidity and a luminous finish. 87 pts."

"Still youthful nose, also wood notes; the Prelude juicy, the acidity dominant, but the Finale smooth. Can still mature. 15.5 pts" - Vinum

"Bright straw yellow. The nose offers hints of yeasts, vanilla, roasted hazelnut and sugared almond. Extraordinarily beautiful on the palate, good lenght and excellent mineral zip. Toffee candy inner-mouth aromas. 88 pts" - Sommelier Toscana, n.34

"Grapefruit, toast, cardamom, full range of barrel tones, good acidity. Very nice, not difficult." - The Daily Winegraph

"Magnificent golden robe with emerald reflections, rich and engaging. Discreet bouquet, notes of fennel. The mouth is fat and silky to the touch, and after a discreet attack, the flavours reveal themselves: fresh fennel, controlled bitterness, buttery notes. The finish is long and dominated by citrus fruits and a nice acidity. A wine of character."

"Cream and butter on nose and palate, slight umami finish. Like an oaked Chardonnay"

"Appealing Muscat-profile aromatics. Textural and pure with some tangy, mealy freshness. Delicate fruit balances out the creamy richness; and subtle struck match mineral notes add liveliness to a firm, tart finish with a good hint of bitterness." - Decanter World Wine Awards 2016

Certificate of Merit - EnoLions 2015

"Pale yellow colour with golden highlights. The nose is characterized by elegant and complex floral fragrances, lime and apple notes and a mineral touch. In the mouth, the attack is lively, tense, with a slight fatness and on the fresh almond typical of the grape variety, on the finish." 

"The Riserva was the complex and most impressive wine; despite the oak aging it maintained purity of the fruit and oak played second fiddle." - Subhash Arora, Indian Wine Academy

"Herbal, fennel, chamomile nose, stonefruit, bitter almond aftertaste. Light to med body"

Decanter Bronze Medal

Decanter bronze Mareterra Casa Lucii Vernaccia di san gimignano riserva

A subtle nose of citrus, fresh lime, lees and almonds leads to a delicate palate with beautiful weight of fruit with complex texture and persistence - Decanter World Wine Awards 2015

"Notes of candied fruit and sweet wood, mouth settling, good material that promises a lot."

"Floral in scents, it has an intact structure, of good strength. It disunites slightly in the finish but retains a valuable freshness." - Ernesto Gentili
