Wine Spectator 2013: Smeriglio Syrah 2010 93 Points
August 2012 James Suckling: 94 point to Pinot Nero 2010 Baracchi "One of the best Pinot Noirs in Italy"
"The stylish and fun Baracchi Family, Riccardo and his wife Silvia, with their son Benedetto, own the sybaritic country inn and restaurant Il Falconiere. I was flattered when Silvia named her school "Cooking Under The Tuscan Sun".
Riccardo makes highly prized wines and champagne-method sparkling wine that inspire Ed to wrote sonnets."
