Wine Advocate 2019: Robola 2018: 89/100: “The 2018 Robola Black Label finishes a touch tart and lemony, showing off freshness in its youth. It does come around with air and warmth nicely. It picks up weight and shows well. It should be a great summer refresher. At some point, the fruit might come out and be more expressive as well”.
Jancis Robinson 2019: Foivos Robola of Cephalonia 2018: 17/20 “ The aroma is equal parts herbal and citrus. Lime citrus intensity and mouth-watering freshness. Quite challenging on its own but would be great with fish or seafood. Deep and long, the acidity challenging but in balance with the intensity of the untamed fruit. Incredibly pure and full of tension.”
