Wine Advocate 92 points - The 2011 Colli Berici Carmenere Riserva Oratorio di San Lorenzo is a deep and penetrating wine with a thick, black appearance. This wine oozes with power and concentration. The bouquet shows savory tones of dark fruit, dried prune, plum, tobacco, barbecue smoke and exotic spice. It’s the quintessential winter wine to pair with braised beef or game meat. Its tannins are soft and chewy and the wine is ever-so velvety in texture. If you like feminine wines, this is not for you. But if you love mass and class in one big package, this is a safe bet.  (Sep 2015)

Founded in 1960 by Giuseppe Inama, this 74 acre estate is located in Monte Foscarino, the heart of the Soave Classico region in Italy. Each vineyard imparts a unique element to the blend; the volcanic soil of Classico lends floral aromas and minerality, and the soils found in Colli Berici contribute depth and structure. The terra rossa soil of this sub-appellation are particularly well suited to growing Bordeaux blends and was the first region in Italy to plant Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Carmenere. In 1992, Giuseppe handed the reins to his son Stefano who carries on his father’s legacy of minimalist intervention in the vineyards and in the cellar. The grapes are hand-picked and briefly macerated on their skins. After a gentle pressing, the musts are naturally cold settled. In order to preserve the aromas and varietal flavors, the wines are bottled with minimal fining or filtration. “We are organic in the way we grow wines, but don’t declare it”, says Stefano. “It is not a marketing tool: the quality of the wine is the marketing tool.”
