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.
