90 points Wine & Spirits for 2012 San Floriano

wine and spirits magazine

From the August 2013 issue of Wine & Spirits:

Nino Franco Riva di San Floriano 2012
90 points

Savory scents of wheat germ and peppery spice balance this wine’s pineapple richness, all held in a lean frame. It ends firm, with dark earth tones adding a pleasant touch of bitterness. Serve it with prosciutto.—Joshua Green
