90/100 Punkte Vinous June 2017 Brilliant orange. Aromas of tangerine, strawberry and fresh flowers show very good clarity and a subtle mineral flourish. Juicy and sharply focused on the palate, offering sappy red berry flavors that put on weight with air. Fleshy, smooth and dry, finishing with tight focus and minerally persistence.
88/100 Punkte Robert Parker Feb 2017 The just-bottled 2016 Hito Rosado was produced with Tempranillo grapes from young vineyards planted at altitudes ranging from 750 to 800 meters. It's a pale colored, fragrant Rosé with some rose petal aromas. The palate is quite refreshing and clean, with good acidity and length.
88/100 Punkte Vinous May 2017 Bright pink. Easygoing aromas and flavors of red berries and flowers. Fresh and fruity, with a strong note of candied violets on the medium-long bright finish. A blend of Syrah, Nero d'Avola and Pinot Nero. Donnafugata is an outstanding Italian wine estate but I'm not sure they have quite gotten the hang of rosato yet.
92/100 Vinous June 2017 Limpid orange. Vibrant and expressive on the nose, displaying cherry, blood orange and floral scents and a building mineral note. Sappy red currant and bitter cherry flavors flesh out slowly with air, picking up a hint of fennel on the back half. The finish hangs on with impressive tenacity, leaving behind bitter orange pith and cherry pit notes.
