"As we at Gambero Rosso see it, the wines of Cantina Raina are among the most personal and centered across the whole denomination and Francesco Mariani is among the producers who are best interpreting the classic varieties of Montefalco"
(Gambero Rosso, Guida ai Vini d’Italia 2015)
"The wines of Francesco Mariani are abandoning the role of supporting actors to become star players. We commend the success of this vigneron’s whites, authentic versions, through the natural development of his Grechetto and Trebbiano Spoletino"
(Gambero Rosso, Guida ai Vini d’Italia 2016)
"Francesco Mariani is one of the young producers in Montefalco who will have an important position in enology tomorrow: this at least is our bet. Every year he gives us wines of good territorial expression and, even in difficult vintages, we find the terroir and the joy of wine «to drink»" (Slow Wine, Guida 2016).
