More information on wine critics and ratings
Fermented entirely with naturally occurring yeast, this is an alternative style of Sauvignon Blanc that is both intricate and textural. An inviting combination of fragrant patisserie-like aromas and fresh herbs – the sweet scent of lemon meringue and apricot friand seems to meld with a tarragon-like herbal quality and a hint of smokiness. The palate is succulent and packed with stone fruit and vanilla, finishing crisp and long with a flinty dryness.

James Suckling (JS) : 94 Points (2019)
A favorite sauvignon with sliced-pear, apple, smoke and flint aromas that follow through to a full body that is tight and well structured with tension and focus. Drink now.

Wine Spectator (WS) : 92 Points (2019)
Offers plenty of nuance and detail, with a vibrant thread of juicy acidity and supple and complex notes of candied ginger, dried honeysuckle and lemon curd. Drink now. 700 cases imported.

Wine Enthusiast (WE) : 90 Points (2019)
Fermented in old oak barrels with, as the name suggests, wild yeast, this bottling is always rich, concentrated and outside the box. It's aromatic, wafting guava and grapefruit rind with base notes of white spice, seashell and flint. It needs time in the glass for the oniony reduction to blow off. The mouthfeel is creamy and intense, with citrus that veers a touch sour on the finish.

Decanter (DCT) : 96 Points (2018)
Complex, flinty, mineral, wild and earthy. Aromas and flavours of peach and preserved lemon, tropical flowers and grapefruit, hay, fresh herb and fruit spice. Distinctive texture with a fine lees, brisk acidity and a mineral mouthfeel. Expressive and complex, lengthy and delicious. A fascinating wine!

Vinous (Antonio Galloni) (VN) : 92 Points (2018)
If you want to be wild and do it with Sauvignon, I can't think of a better place to start. This cuvée undertakes a long, slow, indigenous fermentation in barrel and the result is a really smart, textural style. This is not a shy wine: it's funky with top notes of vivacious violets and a savory undertow of oatmeal. As much as two-thirds of this wine undergoes the malolactic conversion, so there's also a subtle creamy element on the fine but firm finish. (RG) (11/2020)

Robert Parker (RP) : 91 Points (2016)
Kevin Judd's 2016 Wild Sauvignon features toasty accents to it layers of ripe nectarine and pineapple. It's medium-bodied, reasonably rich and textured on the palate, then it weakens a bit on the finish. Stronger vintages can age up to a decade or more, but I'd suggest drinking this by 2023.

Bob Campbell MW (BC) : 95 Points (2015)
Pure, flinty wine in a bone-dry style with citrus and subtle stone fruit flavours. Nice purity with bright acidity helping drive a lengthy finish. Good weight and a suede-like texture. Impressive. Tasted in a vertical back to 2009.

Jancis Robinson (JR) : 17.5 Points (2013)
Tasted Feb 2016 - Lovely light note of struck match but it doesn't obscure the rich depth of the fruit. Greengage more than grassy, with a long tangy finish and great presence without excess fat. Spicy aftertaste. (JH)

An enticing combination of pink grapefruit, burnt orange and white nectarine interwoven with aromas of smoked almonds, hazelnut, and freshly cut hay. The savoury notes carries through onto the rich, textural palate, evidence of this wine’s low-intervention winemaking. An intricate bone-dry style that is highly concentrated with a distinct flintiness, tight structure and crisp, citrus finish.

Cont’Ugo is produced entirely with Merlot as a new interpretation of the Bolgheri territory. The vineyards grow at an altitude that varies between 45 and 60 meters (147/196 feet) above sea level on clay-loam soils that are of alluvial origin that give the wine deep complex notes while preserving the fragrance and freshness typical of Merlot berries.
