Professional Wine Reviews for Castello Di Rubbia Leonard 2006

Rated 94 by Wine & Spirits
From seven-year-old malvasia vines at Rubbia’s estate vineyard in Carso, this ‘06 starts off hidden behind a cloud of vanilla, which, as it lifts, reveals a beguiling fragrance of dried citrus flowers and honeysuckle. The flavors are precise and complex, with an elegant length that’s driven by acidity. Compelling and soulful, this should mature into a truly fascinating wine.

Additional Information on Castello Di Rubbia Leonard 2006

Country: Italy

For several decades in the mid to late twentieth century, Italy's reputation for quality wines took a fairly serious blow. This was brought about partly due to lack of regulation in certain regions, and too much regulation in others. This led to several wineries in the beautiful and highly fertile region of Tuscany making the bold move to work outside of the law, which they saw as responsible for the drop in quality in Tuscan wines. They believed that they had the expertise and the generations of experience necessary with which to make truly excellent, world class wines, and set about doing just that. These 'Super Tuscans', as they came to be known, quickly inspired the rest of Italy to improve their produce, and now, Italian wine producers in the twenty-first century are widely recognised to be amongst the best in the world. Regulation and law began to change, and wine drinkers across the globe woke up to the outstanding wines coming out of Italy, which are continuing to improve and impress to this day.
