Praise for Ponzi Single Vineyards

The March Wine Enthusiast unveils top scores for Ponzi Single Vineyards and a nod to Luisa Ponzi's winemaking excellence.

2010 Ponzi Aurora Chardonnay
94 points
Editor’s Choice
“A wine of surpassing vitality and complexity, it mixes notes of melon, jicama and citrus in a fine-tuned flavor explosion. Long and lively with bracing minerality, it finishes with a fresh lick of sweet herb.”

2010 Ponzi Aurora Pinot Noir
94 points
Cellar Selection
“The Aurora has just a bit more texture and density than its superb companion wine, the Avellana Pinot Noir. Black cherry, cola and baking spice notes are accented with touches of iron filings and slivers of dark chocolate. Thoughtful winemaking is on display here, creating a dense wine that is nonetheless immediately accessible and delicious.”

2010 Ponzi Avellana Chardonnay
92 points
“The sophistication of Luisa Ponzi’s wines increases from vintage to vintage, especially at the high end. Here is a Chardonnay for butter lovers, but there is much more to enjoy than just lush barrel flavors. Thick and full bodied, it has notes of caramel apple, poached pear and passion fruit, sprinkled with baking spices. It’s a flavor jamboree.”

2010 Ponzi Avellana Pinot Noir
93 points
Cellar Selection
“This was not an easy vintage in which to make wine with as much fruit and concentration as this bottling, but winemaker Luisa Ponzi has done it. Deep cherry fruit comes laced with cola and chocolate notes, filling the textural, detailed and full-bodied palate. It demonstrates terrific length and an elegant, balanced finish.”
