The Cabernet Franc-based 2007 La Regola is the finest of these new releases. It possesses gorgeous radiance and the open, seductive personality of the year in expressive fruit. Raspberry jam, spices, flowers and licorice add layers of complexity on the finish. Drinking window: 2014-2022.
91 points - John Szabo
Organically grown cabernet franc from the Tuscan coast south of Bolgheri and a stone's throw from the Mediterranean, La Regola's 2007 is a remarkably savoury and perfectly mature wine, very likely at the peak of enjoyment. It shows plenty of the sapid character of the variety in what's now an oxidative phase, with some shoe polish and acetone in evidence, but still under control. The palate reveals surprisingly sharp acids, including the volatile kind, while tannins turn a little sharp and dusty on the perfumed finish. I can't call this a wine of grand refinement - indeed there's rusticity on display, but not unappealing. In any case, I suggest enjoying this now with the black fruit flavours still present. Density and concentration are certainly very good. Tasted July 2021.
