About Jaddico Riserva 2015, Suckling writes “There’s a ton of fruit that’s quite upfront, but what there is still shows good freshness with fresh herbs, brambleberries, cranberry sauce and spices. Full body, a warm and soft core of fruit and a medium chewy finish. Drink now or hold”; while he describes Visellio 2015 as a wine endowed with “plenty of dried herbs, blueberry tart, cassis, cherry liqueur and blackberry muffin. Full body, some fresh acidity and a chewy finish. Drink in 2020”.
