Ciacci piccolomini d'Aragona Brunello di Montalcino 2011
產區:Tuscany, Italy
品種:100% Sangiovese
評分:94 points Vinous :
The 2011 Brunello di Montalcino is fabulous. In 2011, proprietor Paolo Bianchini bottled just one Brunello. That commitment to quality comes through loud and clear. Dark cherry, plum, smoke, tobacco and licorice all flesh out in an effortless, incredibly inviting wine. The warmth of the vintage and the natural generosity of these vineyards in Castelnuovo is evident, yet the 2011 possesses remarkable balance to match all of that intensity. I don't expect the 2011 to make old bones, but is gorgeous today. Readers should expect a flamboyant, decadently full-throttle wine built on voluptuousness and generous, racy fruit. Bianchini gave the 2011 three full years in cask. (AG)    (2/2016)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate :
The 2011 Brunello di Montalcino is a very beautiful wine that shows a fraction of good things to come. Very fruit-driven at the moment, it should flesh out further with time. Evident fruit underlines the warm growing conditions of this vintage. You get dark cherry, raspberry, dried strawberry and plum. The bouquet doesn't feel overripe per se, but you definitely get a taste of the warm growing season. Delve deeper, and this Brunello begins to reveal spice, herb, cola, tar and black licorice. These elements form the base of the wine's budding complexity. As nice as this wine is to drink now, I look forward to trying it five years from now. (ML)    (3/2016)

Cogno Barolo Ravera 2011

95 points Wine Spectator (Dec 2015):

*Highly Recommended* A clean, focused style, this red shows warmth, balance, structure and complexity, offering classic rose, cherry, tar and tobacco aromas and flavors. with plenty of fruit. Features a fine, intense aftertaste of cherry, mineral and tobacco. Best from 2019 through 2033. 

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (Jun 2015):

The 2011 Barolo Ravera does a terrific job of portraying the soft and rich side of the vintage with a slightly more accessible style. The wine opens to dark extraction and bright cherry flavors with spice, tobacco, black truffle, pressed rose petal and licorice. It shows a youthful, vibrant personality with a pristine varietal voice. If you are looking for an opulent, caressing Barolo, this wine fits the bill. The Ravera vineyard is planted to 50-year-old vines that hold up very nicely in warm vintages such as 2011. It has the natural structure and heft necessary for longer aging. (ML)

93 points Vinous (Mar 2015):

The 2011 Barolo Ravera emerges from the oldest vines on the property. Dark cherry, plum, spice, new leather and lavender swirl around the glass in a resonant, generous Barolo that captures the generosity of the year as seen through the lens of Ravera. In this vintage, the Ravera is an especially weightless and simply impeccable in its overall balance. Hints of leather, sweet spices add nuance on the soft yet energetic finish. There is so much to like here. (AG)

Romano Dal Forno's 2006 Valpolicella Superiore is dark, rich and powerful. Firm yet well-integrated tannins frame black cherries, mocha, licorice and spices in this deep, broad-shouldered wine. The 2006 boasts tons of depth and richness in a sophisticated, sleek style. I was quite surprised to see the 2006 drink
well with just a few hours of air. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2018.

ST96/RP95/JS95/vivino4.4(342酒評)

96 pts ST (May 2017) &
(International Wine Cellar 2017 Top 100 wines): 

The 2010 Valpolicella Superiore is a utterly fascinating wine from Dal Forno in this vintage. Composed from 70% Corvina and Corvina Grossa, 20% Rondinella, 5% Croatina, 5% Oseleta, the selected grapes are then placed in plastic plateaux and are left to rest for 45 days in large open rooms, where an innovative ventilation system helps maintain an elevated and thorough air flow. After the racking process, the Valpolicella rests for a few days in stainless steel tanks and subsequently is placed in new barriques to mature for 36 long months. The result is a wine which displays a pitch dark, inky color, followed by complex aromatics of ripe black currants, black cherries, mission figs woven together with espresso, grilled herbs, bittersweet chocolate, graphite and some earthy loam and straw characteristics all taking shape in this seductive Valpolicella. On this palate this is full-bodied with beautifully polished tannins and remarkable overall structure and balance, with impressive minerality at it core. It all comes together beautifully on the long, expansive finish which lingers on and on. It seems as if this wine continues to improve in quality each vintage, and the 2010 is the most compelling Valpolicella I have ever tasted from the estate. Overall, this is another total success from the Dal Forno Family. (Best 2019-2030)

HK$3,480HK$2,980

Domenico Clerico Barolo "Aeroplanservaj" 2008

這款酒“Aeroplan Servaj”在Piemont方言中表示“像飛機一樣狂野”(wild airplane),暗指莊主Domenico Clerico的成長歷程,因為在其父親的眼中,Clerico自少年起就是一個不安於室的野小子,他個性勇敢,有著天馬行空的想像力,從不畏懼打破故鄉朗格山世代遵守的傳統。Aeroplan Servaj系列擁有6個不同的酒標,每個都有一種airplane之意。所用葡萄產自酒莊位於Serralunga村的租借葡萄園,平均樹齡25歲,佔地1.4公頃,年產量6000瓶。24個木桶陳年(30% new - 70% used)+ 2年瓶內陳年。

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:

The 2008 Barolo Aeroplanservaj puts on a whole different act. Here, the emphasis is on elegance and finesse. The opulence and massiveness of the wine fits in with the Clerico philosophy, but unlike the Barolo Briccotto its strongest cards are played with a more subtle strategy. The aromas of black fruit and spice are wrapped a bit tighter, and the wine shows some nervous tension in the glass that needs to soften with age. I loved those delicate sprigs of mint and wild flower that somehow emerge from the inner depths of this rock-solid wine. Terrible mudslides in 2009 damaged the Badarina vineyard in Serralunga d’Alba and Clerico did not produce the Aeroplanservaj that year. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2030.

92 points Wine Spectator:

This is fresh and racy, with a base of granular tannins buoying the cherry, menthol and balsamic notes. Long and spicy, this is balanced on the tannic side. Best from 2016 through 2028.

16 months in barrel (50 hL), +2 years bottles.

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (Jun 2013):

One notch down on the intensity ladder is the 2009 Barolo Ciabot Mentin. Less obvious and definitely more flirtatious, this gorgeous wine playfully dangles subtle hints of licorice, dark fruit, anisette and Middle Eastern spice in front of your nose. They morph and transform into something new and unexpected with each swirl of the glass. There’s enough flesh here to keep the wine grounded, but there’s also enough tonic freshness to keep it from feeling heavy.

93 points James Suckling (Jan 2014):

A beautiful ripeness of fruit here with dried strawberries and sliced mushroom aromas. Full body, with polished and round tannins and a cedar, mahogany and dried berry aftertaste. Needs at least two or three years of bottle age.

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar (April 2014):

Medium red. Less roasted than the Briccotto, offering aromas and flavors of cherry, mocha, coffee and spices. Less fat and full in the mouth but shows more lift and energy. A bit youthfully clenched, but the wine's firm tannic spine and impressive length suggest it will be a beauty with a few years of aging. Despite being situated at high altitude, these are the first Barolo vines Clerico picks. The acidity here is a very healthy 6.3 grams per liter.

92 points Wine Spectator:

A fresh, vibrant red, whose eucalyptus, tea, cherry and leather notes are backed by dense, ripe tannins. Balanced on the firm side, with a coating of dusty tannins on the long finish. Give this some time. Best from 2017 through 2032.

18/20 points Jancis Robinson (Jun 2013):

Commune of Monforte d’Alba. Concentrated ruby with orange tinges. Balsamic fruitcake and cardamom skin. Fine cherry fruit with a layer of coating tannins. Intense, long and with a hint of vanilla. Quite spectacular and modernist but executed with huge skill.

Duemani 2004

Luca d'Attoma is a highly respected Tuscan wine consultant, employers have included Azienda Agricola Le Macchiole in Bolgheri and Tua Rita, who, along with wife Elena Celli, eventually realised a dream to produce his own wine. Luca and Elena are the Duemani 'two hands' that run the estate. They first identified a wonderful site in the north Bolgheri hills in the mid nineties. The purchase 7 ha of land and set about preparing the soils for Biodynamic viticulture. This took seven years. The first vines were planted in 2001 and already, by the 2008 vintage, they have started to make some outstanding wines. The structure of the soil here is remarkable for its predominance of clay and stone – the resulting low soil fertility leading to greater character and complexity in the vines fruit. After an examination of the property and its unique position in the contour of a west-facing amphitheatre there emerged the sites of three distinct vineyards. The vineyard at the highest altitude and with the richest soil is the site of their Cabernet Franc vines. Another lower vineyard continues with the same varietal and then evolves into rows of Merlot vines. The third and smallest   vineyard, notably stony and arid, is the 'heart' of the estate and is planted to 7000 vines of alberello-trained Syrah. From the very beginning Duemani have followed the principles of biodynamic farming and since the 2004 harvest their estate's production.

Fontalloro Felsina 2012

100% Sangiovese

94 points Antonio Galloni, vinous.com, September 2015:

Dark red cherry, plum, cinnamon and crushed rock nuances flesh out in the 2012 Fontalloro. Next to most of the other wines in the lineup, the 2012 Fontalloro is floral, perfumed, fresh and vibrant, with gorgeous aromatic lift, silky tannins and lovely overall balance. Fontalloro often opens up before Rancia, as is the case today, but the 2012 also possesses more than enough depth to drink well for a number of years. Still, the sexy, radiant finish makes me think most bottles won't be around to make old bones. Put simply, the 2012 Fontalloro is an arrestingly beautiful, showy wine built to please. And please it does.

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (Oct 2015)

The 2012 Fontalloro (100% Sangiovese) is a stunning expression and delivers the high quality we have come to expect of this celebrated IGT Toscana wine in a less important vintage. Careful work has been done here to ensure the high quality of fruit. The Fontalloro vineyard is located on the border of the Chianti Classico and the Chianti Colli Senesi appellations. Many have called upon Fèlsina to change the wine's status to Chianti Classico Gran Selezione, but technically it can't be because of much of the vineyard is located outside the denomination limits. The bouquet is soft and rich with dark fruit and spice. In the mouth, Fontalloro reveals integrated tannins and acidity. (ML)

94 points Wine Enthusiast (Nov 2015):

 Ripe plum, mature black cherry, violet, clove, mocha, anise and grilled sage are just some of the sensations you'll find on this gorgeous wine alongside velvety tannins. It already has great depth but hold for more complexity. Drink 2017-2027. *Cellar Selection* (KO)

A massive expression of Merlot, the 2010 Galatrona is heaven-sent. The layers are infinite here spanning dark fruit, spice and chocolate. I fall in love with this wine year after year. The mouth is caressed with stirring complexity and fine tannins that feel silky and smooth. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2030.

95 points James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com, August 2012:
Aromas of black olives, violets and fresh fruit follow through to a full body, with a dense palate of dark fruits and olives. Long and polished. Handmade wine. You sense it. Pure Merlot sensation. Try in 2014.

94+ Ian d'Agata, vinous.com, September 2012:
(100% merlot): Full, saturated ruby. Extremely pure aromas of blackberry, blackcurrant, violet, minerals and cocoa. Lush and silky but precise too, with rich, tactile black fruit and mineral flavors lifted by harmonious acidity. The slow-building finish features ripe but very silky tannins and wonderful purity of flavor. A more refined Galatrona than some recent, more tannic versions; cellar it for another four or five years to allow it to build further complexity and depth.

94 points Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator, September 2013:
The chocolate and cocoa notes highlight the black cherry, blackberry and pomegranate flavors in this dense red. Flamboyant, showing plenty of oak, this remains vibrant, intense and long, with a spicy aftertaste. Merlot. Best from 2016 through 2026. 500 cases imported.

Giacomo Conterno Barbera d'Alba "Cerretta" 2009

產區:Alba, Piedmont, Italy

品種:100% Barbera, bottled in June of 2011

91 Points  Antonio Galloni: Deep ruby-red. Pristine, high-pitched aromas of black fruits. Seriously rich, with powerful acidity and strong alcohol giving shape to the almost candied blackberry, black raspberry and cassis flavors. A bit aggressive on the back end but this is a fruit bomb, from a yield of no more than 35 hectoliters per hectare.

91 Points Robert Parker: The 2009 Barbera d'Alba Cerretta is a huge wine bursting with dark red cherries, plums, sweet herbs, rose petal and all sorts of mineral notes. Smoke, ash and tar develop in the glass. The 2009 Cerretta is an intense, virile Barbera that needs at least a few years in bottle to drop some of its baby fat. The richness and depth are impressive considering this is only the second vintage Conterno has made the wine. Mineral notes develop on the finish, but the Cerretta is ultimately more about fruit. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2022.

Giovanni Corino Barolo Arborina, Barolo DOCG 2009

產區:Arborina, La Morra 

93 points James Suckling (Jan 2014):

This is very structured with firm tannins and beautiful ripe tannins that are coated with a tiny amount of new wood. Full yet refined. Beautiful structure. 

93 points Vinous (AG)(May 2013):

 The 2009 Barolo Arborina offers up freshly cut flowers, mint, sweet red berries and cloves. In this vintage, the Arborina shows more energy and drive than the Giachini, but a touch less overall sensuality and finesse. The higher percentage of sand in this vineyard gives the Arborina its characteristic high-toned aromatics. Firm, but nicely integrated tannins support the expressive, floral-infused finish. 

Extremely fragrant, particularly for an Arborina, expressive sweet summer berry fruits with notes of earth and stone, underpinned by a solid 
tannic framework. Rich, powerful but balanced. A west-to-south-west clay and sand-dominated vineyard. The wine is fermented and aged 
in the same way as the Giachini; short maceration in steel tanks followed by malolactic and ageing in 50% new oak for 24 months, yet this 
is so very different in style; often broader, more muscular.

The Corino brothers are the rising stars of Piedmont. Their wines are beautiful examples of La Morra Barolos. Perfumed, subtle and elegant with the balancing acidity and fine tannin that make them so complete. Giuliano emphasises: “Barolo doesn’t have to just be about power.’’ A tasting of some beautifully refined and fresh 1991s, over a decade on, would seem to full justify this statement. As of the 2004 vintage the estate has been split in two, Giuliano will produce wines from Arborina, Giachini and will continue to make a Vecchie Vigne. Renato, who has set up his own estate, will produce Rocche, Arborina and some Vecchie Vigne. The Giovanni Corino wines continue to remain in a beautiful floral, red fruited, elegant style.

Mocha, espresso, plums and cloves form a highly expressive mosaic of aromas and flavors in the 2011 Guidalberto. Wonderfully open and seductive, the 2011 captures the essence of Bolgheri in a style that is resonant and super sensual. Silky tannins make the 2011 impossible to resist today.

Made with Cabernet Sauvignon (60%) and Merlot, the 2011 Guidalberto opens to dark, rich concentration and beautiful aromatic intensity. You really feel the weight and importance of the wine thanks to its shapely aromas of dark fruit, plum, spice and bitter chocolate. The mouthfeel is incredibly supple and the rich density is long lasting. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2022.

Beautiful and bold, the 2013 Guidalberto is one of the best editions of this wine ever made. It shows great energy and momentum with dark fruit, spice, tobacco and black truffle that come together with impeccable unity. I love the heft and power that supports this wine at the back. Its tannic structure is firm but velvety and will continue to soften as the wine evolves over the next few years. I would suggest holding onto this bottle for three to four more years before popping the cork.

意大利名莊Sassicaia的副牌酒又名「西施小教堂」的 Guidalberto,其著名的正牌酒Sassicaia質素絕對能跟法國一級名莊酒媲美。Guidalberto 屬於” Super Tuscan” 派別,即不隸屬意大利葡萄酒官方DOCG分級制度,因為DOCG分級制定所有葡萄酒需以本土葡萄Sangiovese釀造,而Tenuta San Guido酒引進法國葡萄品種Cabernet Sauvignon及Merlot進行釀製。

1940年代,Tenuta San Guido創立人Mario Incisa della Rocchetta 到過波爾多的Graves產區 (Graves法語亦譯作石頭,代表當地的土壤),認為兩地土壤相似故認為可以引入 Cabernet Sauvignon,毅然決定將葡萄品種從慣常的Sangiovese及Nebbiolo移到Cabernet Sauvignon ,把握酒莊名為 Sassicaia 從意大利文譯作”石頭”的故事。

Il Poggione Brunello di Montalcino 2012

100% Sangiovese grapes picked by hand from 20-year-old vines

# 2012 is not a vintage to miss for fans of Brunello di Montalcino.

95+ points Wine Advocate:

Il Poggione is a Brunello superstar and a vintage like this reveals every reason why that affirmation is true. From the second the 2012 Brunello di Montalcino pours into the glass, you know you are in for something special. The wine is darkly saturated and rich in appearance. Absent are those slightly amber or browning hues you often get with Sangiovese in a hot vintage. Nor does the wine show flat or tired characteristics. Instead, the quality of fruit is vibrant and rich. This is a healthy, generous and exuberant Brunello with dark density and succulent fruit flavors that are followed by integrated spice and tobacco. The balance is impressive and one thing you get here is fresh acidity. This is not to be underestimated, because the acidity quota in the 2012 vintage across the appellation is not as high or evident as usual. This is one of the year's best Brunellos.

93 points James Suckling:

Walnuts and cedar with plums and hints of milk chocolate. Always subtle. Medium body, a solid core of fruit and medium-chewy tannins. Center palate of cherry fruit. Give it a year or two to soften.

擁有將近 118 公頃的 Tenuta Il Poggione 葡萄園,主要分佈在 Montalcino 山丘南部的 Sant’Angelo in Colle 村週遭,平均海拔高於 400 公尺以上,有著更理想的地中海型氣候。由於海拔較高,清晨與傍晚的涼爽溫度,延長了葡萄的生長週期,讓葡萄有著更集中豐富的果味以及更多的層次,同時也保留充份的果酸。

Il Poggione 在19世紀中,與Biondi-Santi 和 Frescobaldi 三家酒莊率先開始釀造Brunello di Montalcino,讓 Brunello di Montalcino 在 1966 年成為最先獲得義大利官方 D.O.C. 認證的八個產區之一,之後在 1980 年最先成為最高的 D.O.C.G.。現在Tenuta Il Poggione已是Brunello di Montalcino裡最頂級明星酒莊。

Isole e Olena Cepparello 2012

媲美"女人頭Le Pergole Torte"的 Isole e Olena 來自偏西邊的 Castellina村北面的Barberino Val d'Elsa,由兩塊田Isole和Olena組成,位於Chianti Classico,海拔400米。莊主Paolo De Marchi是最早在CC採用100%Sangiovese的酒莊之一,Paolo來自Piedmont地區,之前他沒有任何葡萄酒釀造經驗,全憑自己的努力,謙虛的精神和沈穩的性格,在沒有聘請顧問的情況下,創造了100%純Sangiovese的Cepparello。 Nicolas Belfrage曾問他什麼使他有動力這麼投入創作了Cepparello,Paolo說“I wanted to understand Sangiovese。” 他的理念是將葡萄酒和生長葡萄的土地鏈接在一起,真實展示出Chianti風土的典型性。

"Cepparello" 是酒莊的旗艦酒款。呈現了Barberino Val d'Elsa 風土帶來的power,入口丹寧有力,骨架強健,又十分的優雅,給人一種很Man的感覺,又覺得很深邃,複雜度很高,蘑菇,烤杏仁,果丹皮,花香,很有活力。陳年後,更有菌菇,肉湯,櫻桃的香氣絡繹不絕,讓很多酒友想起了Chambertin中的王者Domaine Armand Rousseau。

97 pts Vinous: 

The 2012 Cepparello is just as compelling as it has always been. Sweet, ample and generous from the outset, the 2012 shows all of its pedigree, even at this early stage. Radiant fruit and exquisite aromatics make a strong opening statement as the wine fleshes out in the glass. Ample, creamy and super-expressive, the 2012 is shaping up to be a superb Cepparello. The only thing the 2012 needs is time. An up and down year with hot temperatures in July and early August, followed by rain in September forced DeMarchi to be especially selective and bottle only the best lots. Production is down to 30,000 bottles from 36,000 in 2013 and 32,400 in 2011.

94 pts James Suckling:

Pretty bright fruit with blackcurrant, violet and sandalwood aromas and flavors. Full body, firm and linear tannins and a fresh finish. Needs two or three years to soften. Cepparello is always a classic. Better in 2017.

La Magia Brunello di Montalcino 2012 

產區:Montalcino, Tuscany, Italy

品種:100% Sangiovese

96 points James Suckling (Nov 2016) : Incredible purity of fruit to this red with plums, cherries and berries. Full body, ripe and silky tannins and a fantastically long finish. Love the bitter-orange undertone to this. Drink in 2020. 

92 Points Wine Enthusiast: Truffle, leather, Mediterranean brush, chopped herb and black-skinned fruit aromas meld together with a balsamic note. The juicy, concentrated palate shows dried cherry, crushed raspberry, cinnamon and licorice while fine-grained tannins lend support. Give it time for the tannins to fully integrate. Drink 2020–2030.

La Palazzetta Brunello di Montalcino 2010
產區:Tuscany, Italy (DOCG)
品種:100% Sangiovese
The 18 hectare family run winery and vineyards are situated on the south-eastern edge of the Montalcino DOC in the tiny village of Castelnuovo dell’ Abate.

Flavio Fanti is a traditionalist – utilizing large Slovenian and French oak for his Brunello. However, he strongly believes that wine is a product of fruit and anytime fruit is consumed it must be ripe and mature.

Flavio's Brunello are a testament to the amazing zone of Castelnuovo dell’Abate. Flavio cultivates these vineyards organically with severe respect for the land and his beloved appellation. His Brunello are massive wines with structure, power and purity, without doubt, built for the long haul.

91 points James Suckling:

Extremely perfumed with violet and blackberry aromas. Full body with firm, silky tannins and an attractive acid-fruit balance on the finish that titillates your palate. Drink now.

Winemaker Notes: Ruby red with purple reflections. Aromas of blueberry, wet earth and a hint of orange peel. Full body with bright acidity and lots of intensity but balanced and silky-textured, an ultra-fine Barbera that combines richness with finesse.

La Spinetta Langhe Nebbiolo 2013

91 points Antonio Galloni :

The 2013 Langhe Nebbiolo is one of the best values in La Spinetta's lineup. The darker side of Nebbiolo comes through in this powerful, deep wine. Super-ripe dark cherry, spice, new leather and a kiss of French oak hit the explosive finish. Frankly, this is better than many Barbarescos readers will come across. Most of the fruit for the Langhe Nebbiolo comes from Starderi, in Neive.

Winemaker Notes: Typical light red of Nebbiolo with aromas of dried rose petals and dark fruits such as plums and blueberry. Full bodied, chewy and rich with dusty tannins and a juicy yet elegant finish.

The Rivetti brothers of La Spinetta have revolutionized the conception of long-ageing and gruesomely tannic Piedmont wines. Their range of Barolo, Barbarescos and Barberas are powerful yet forward and fruity. The modern style of their wines certainly makes Nebbiolos from the northwest corner of Italy much more approachable when young.

La Spinetta Moscato d'Asti Bricco Quaglia 2016

產區:Piedmont 

品種:100% Moscato Bianco, from Bricco Quaglia. Exposure south 300 m s.l.m.

Italy’s first single vineyard Moscato d’Asti! From a 20ha plot of 25-30 year old vines grown in calcareous and sandy soils. Moscato Bricco Quaglia, brilliant peach and pear, remarkably refreshing...

No one makes a better, slightly sparkling Moscato than La Spinetta. They offer multiple single vineyard offerings, all of which are usually outstanding. A soft, rich version, offering a gentle mousse and flavors of rose, fresh grape and mint.

Winemaker Notes: Yellow color with green reflections. Sweet and sexy, dried apricots and crisp pineapple this wine surprises with its remarkable freshness and brilliant fruit flavors, bright acidity and a zingy finish drink young. Outstanding balance and a light sparkle make this traditionally dessert wine an appropriate choice for an aperitif or a refreshing splash with brunch.

92 Points Antonio Galloni, December 2015: 

Voerzio's 2013 Langhe Nebbiolo is another terrific example of the year. Striking aromatics give the 2013 much of its lifted personality. Sweet red cherries, crushed flowers, mint, citrus and white pepper are all beautifully sculpted throughout. This is an especially delicate wine that impresses with its poise and freshness.

Le Chiuse Brunello di Montalcino 2009 WS92/WE90

正當意大利葡萄酒專家Kerin O’Keefe俾2013年份的Le Chiuse Brunello di Montalcino 100分時,大家可能會有疑問: 『呢間係咩來頭?』

呢間位處montalcino北面的小酒莊,酒莊主Simonetta Valiani 的外祖父原來是 Tancredi Biondi-Santi!原來 Tancredi 在女兒Fiorella(Simonetta 的母親)出嫁的時候,把名叫 Le Chiuse (意即「水庫」)的葡萄園和別的兩塊地送了給她當嫁妝,同時吩咐女兒千萬不要把葡萄園賣給別人,原因可能是這個葡萄園是Biondi-Santi 的 Riserva 酒的來源地(其中一塊?)。Fiorella 一直把葡萄園租了給繼承 Biondi-Santi 的哥哥Franco,直到她在 1986 年去世以後,她的女兒 Simonetta 決定與丈夫Nicolò Magnelli 合力重整家園,成立自己的酒莊,取名為 Le Chiuse。

她外祖父一手把 Biondi-Santi 從平常百姓的日常飲料提升為不朽的藝術傑作。還有一件更重要的事﹕Giulio Gambelli 在 14 歲時曾在一家酒莊跟任顧問的 Tancredi 學習過,所以沒有Tancredi,也不會有 Soldera 和 Le Pergole Torte!

90 Points Wine Spectator - "Dark flavors of black cherry and blackberry pick up a pleasant leafy edge as this juicy red stretches out on the finish. Needs time to integrate, with a long aftertaste of fruit and mineral. Merlot, Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon. Best from 2018 through 2026. "

Lisini Brunello di Montalcino 2008

產區:Tuscany, Italy

品種:100% Sangiovese

93 points Wine Spectator (May 2013): The terrific aromas of strawberry, cherry and currant are accented by underbrush, spice and tobacco elements on the palate in this elegant and intense red, which builds to a persistent finish. Fruit and mineral accents echo on the aftertaste. Best from 2015 through 2030. (BS) 

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (Jun 2013): Lisini’s 2008 Brunello di Montalcino is one of the few wines of the vintage that is going to require patience. A big, broad-shouldered wine, the 2008 fills out nicely over time with attractive black fruit, smoke, tar, game and savory herb notes. Although quite virile and imposing today, the 2008 also shows striking inner perfume and a level of sweetness that is likely to require some time to emerge, suggesting the wine has plenty of potential for improvement ahead. The 2008 spent 42 months in French oak, exceedingly long by today’s standards. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2028. (AG)

Mascarello Giuseppe E Figlio Barbera d'Alba "Scudetto" 2011 vivino4.0(181酒評)

HK$:
HK$290
HK$290HK$260

Mascarello Giuseppe E Figlio Barbera d'Alba "Scudetto"  2011

產區:Piedmont, Italy 品種:100% Barbera

Appellation: Barbera D'Alba

Vineyard: The Scudetto vineyard is within the hamlet of Perno in Monforte d'Alba at 300m in elevation.

Orientation: West, northwest 300m in elevation.

Soil: Clayey-sandy, composed of brown clay and grey sand of marine origin, with the presence of pebbles and small skeletal particles.

Viticulture: Harvested in the first two weeks of October. Vinification: Traditional-style, floating cap fermentation for 15/20 days. These estate-grown grapes are harvested from 60/70-year-old vines with low yields. Aging: The wine is then matured in French oak for approximately 18 months. Notes: The vineyard is named so because its' shape is that of a shield. The Italian soccer championship is also called the Scudetto.

Wine Advocate (Galloni): Proprietor Mauro Mascarello makes some of the most compelling, traditional wines in Piedmont. Mascarello’s signature Barolo, Monprivato, rarely shows well when young, yet it has a proven ability to transform magically in the bottle, something I have witnessed first-hand with more vintages than I can remember. The irony is that by the time the wines start showing well they are long gone from the market or have appreciated dramatically in price.
