"This is spicy, showing black pepper, saturated black cherry, plum, earth, iron and tobacco flavors. Dense and opaque, with a long aftertaste of dark fruit. Pugnitello, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. Best from 2021 through 2033. 3,400 cases made, 800 cases imported. -BS" (WS)

"A blend of 35% Pugnitello, 30% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Petit Verdot, the 2015 Vigorello seems to have the concept of vigor and strength at its very core. The wine opens to an inky dark appearance, with thick layers of dark fruit, spice, cured leather, camphor and campfire ash. You feel the sweet ripeness of the warm vintage in the soft and succulent quality of the background structure. Some 38,000 bottles were made." (WA)

"San Felice's 2015 Vigorello, a blend of the indigenous Pugnitello with Bordeaux varieties, is dark, unctuous and inviting. An infusion of crème de cassis, bittersweet chocolate, cloves, licorice, menthol and leather give Vigorello tons of character as well as personality. This is such a distinctive wine. The blend is 35% Pugnitello, 30% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Petit Verdot."(VM)

"Beautiful aromas of blackcurrants and blackberries with hints of lavender. Full body, chewy yet polished tannins and a slightly austere finish. This will turn out beautifully with a few years of bottle age. Try after 2021." (JS)
