Masi Costasera Amarone Classico 2012 JS94/RP92/WS91
Masi Costasera Amarone classico 2012 (JS94/RP92/WS91,vivino 4.3(7155酒評，比今年5月3120個酒評多了1倍))
94 pts James Suckling :
Lots of complexity comes through from the outset on the nose, borne out in terms of smoky black cherries, dried rose stems, asphalt, tar and licorice. Full, structured body that dives through layers of dark fruit, driven along by active acidity all the way to the long but not cloying finish.
Mastroberardino Taurasi Radici Riserva 2009 RP 95 WE 94
Mastroberardino是義大利一間成立於1750年左右的悠久名園，它位於南部Campania，由於鄰近維蘇威火山，所種植的葡萄受惠於異常肥沃的火山區泥土，所釀出來的酒除了保留傳統風味，礦物質豐富亦是特色之一。此外，它們種植的葡萄品種，如Aglianico、Greco、Fiano、 Falanghina等，均有二千多年歷史，尤其是Aglianico古葡萄復植重生，更是震撼酒市，是百年難得一見的原生品種。Mastroberardino Taurasi Riserva 是酒莊旗艦酒，100% Aglianico，桶陳30個月、瓶陳36個月，總共長達5年半才上市。2009年，市場價400-480，特價$360，6支起$340/支(原箱6支裝木箱)，歡迎Mix。
Monte Zovo Amarone 2012 Luca Maroni 96/WE91
成立於1925年的Monte Zovo 酒莊，位處Verona維羅娜幾公里外的Bardolino 產區，此區以生產風乾葡萄酒Amarone馳名。
呢支2012Amarone 是美國航空頭等倉專用酒，24個月橡木桶，再12個月瓶內陳年後才推出市場。口感豐富，果香濃郁，也拍得住之前介紹的Masi 和Zenato，但價錢更便宜。
Monte Zovo Amarone della Valpolicella 2012， Luca Maroni 96/WE91/vivino4.0(812酒評)
91 pts Wine Enthusiast:
Bold and brawny, this opens with aromas of pressed violet, dried plum and a whiff of cake spice. The full-bodied palate doles out brandied black cherry, licorice, black pepper and nutmeg alongside tightly knit, fine-grained tannins.
Montevetrano 2007 AG95/WA94+ “Sassacaia of the South.”
品種：Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Aglianico
Robert Parker 形容為“Sassacaia of the South.”
95 points Antonio Galloni, Wine Advocate (190), August 2010:
The 2007 Montevetrano is the product of an unusual vintage characterized by hot temperatures that were virtually uninterrupted throughout the year. Bright red fruit, flowers and spices are some of the nuances that emerge from this silky, beautifully balanced Montevetrano. The combination of explosive ripe fruit, richness and finesse is utterly breathtaking. The warmth of the vintage comes through in the wine's generosity, yet there are no suggestions whatsoever of over- ripeness. This is a magnificent Montevetrano. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2032.
94+ points Monica Larner, Wine Advocate (232), August 2017:
The 2007 Montevetrano suggests a more prominent presence of Cabernet Sauvignon, aromatically speaking, compared to the other wines in this mini retrospective. The percentage of grapes used is the same but this impression is reinforced by the warmth of the summer growing season and the exuberance of the fruit. Blackberry aromas are followed by spice, leather and tar. There are subtle notes of balsam herb and green peppercorn as well. The wine is structured and firm but not astringent. The tannins are softly integrated and fine in texture.
Nebbiolo d’Alba Valmaggiore, Bruno Giacosa 2014
Nebbiolo d’Alba Valmaggiore, Bruno Giacosa 2014
產區： Piedmont, Italy
Juicy red fruits dance on a brooding foundation of licorice, exotic spices, warm cigar wrapper, smoky minerality, and pressed flower petals in this approachable, pretty ’14 Nebbiolo d’Alba. Velvety and caressing, this wine snuggles the palate with chewy tannins, making for an elegant, enjoyable drinking experience. Giacosa sources this wine from old-vine Nebbiolo grown in prestigious vineyards by farmers with whom the estate has longtime relationships; it’s crafted to provide an early-drinking yet aristocratic version of the emblematic Piemonte grape.
Orma Toscana 2011 JS97/RP93/WE92
釀造Oreno而聞名的七橋酒莊主Antonio Moretti Cuseri 係Bolgheri 買下7公頃靚田，99年開始栽種釀造Orma，酒莊自05年起頻頻得獎，每年平均94分，頗有實力。
50%Merlot, 30%Cabernet Sauvignon, 20%Cabernet Franc.
97 pts James Suckling :
A gorgeous, sleek wine with super-polished tannins and fabulous fruit. It's full but so refined and sexy. It goes on for minutes. Really fine. What a wine. This Bordeaux blend from here is the best ever. Better in 2016 but great now.
Paolo Conterno Barolo Ginestra 2009 （RP94)
Paolo Conterno Barolo Ginestra 2009
產區：Barolo, Piedmont, Italy
94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
The 2009 Barolo Ginestra is a beautiful expression of Nebbiolo. This is a strong showing from the producer’s flagship vineyard. The aromatic tension and energy delivered reminds you that this is a young wine that needs more time to unwind and relax. But all the essentials are there: Licorice, tar, dried fruit, tobacco and a pretty addition of crushed spice or cardamom. The mouthfeel is finely chiseled and sharp with tight, young tannins at the back. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2030.
Roero Arneis Bruno Giacosa 2014 (JS92)
Roero Arneis Bruno Giacosa 2014
Winemaker notes: Its delicate skin makes it one of the most recalcitrant varieties in Piedmont. Native to Roero, this grape was on the brink of near-extinction by the 1970s. Thanks to houses such as Vietti and the legendary Bruno Giacosa, it is still here for your enjoyment. Salute!
92 Points James Suckling: This is fantastic. Gorgeous acidity and minerality with dried pear and apple. Lemon and other ctirus undertones; hints of grapefruit. Full to medium body. Very long and fresh. You want to drink this in warm weather to freshen up.
San Polo Brunello di Montalcino 2009 (WA92,WS91)
San Polo Brunello di Montalcino 2009
92 points Wine Advocate :
Aromas of exotic spice, Spanish cedar and sandalwood will move to the background as characteristic tones of dark fruit and balsam herb move forward. That latter set of aromas is already brewing steadily off sides, just waiting to move into the spotlight. This is a tight and masculine expression with a lively garnet-ruby color and delicate touches of plump cherry sweetness woven into the finish.
Siro Pacenti Brunello di Montalcino Pelagrilli 2012 (JS95)
Siro Pacanti Brunello di Montalcino Pelagrilli 2012
95 Points James Suckling: So much violet, licorice and berry character to this. Wonderful depth. Full body, dusty and chewy tannins and a persistent and intense finish. Layered mouthfeel. Drink in 2020.
92 Points Antonio Galloni: Deep red with ruby tinges. Delicately flinty and herbal notes complicate sour red cherry, redcurrant and underbrush aromas. Fresh and juicy but with an almost austere quality to the crisp red berry and minty plum flavors. Finishes long and clean with a mineral nuance. The herbal note disapperars with aeration, so it’s of paramount importance to give this wine plenty of air. Pacenti makes 20,000 bottles a year of this Brunello from 25 to 35 year old vines with roughly 75-80% of the grapes grown in the northern Pellagrilli estate vineyards and the rest from the Piancornello vineyards in the southern reaches Montalcino.
92 Points The Wine Advocate : Boasting contemporary lines and a generously extracted style, the 2012 Brunello di Montalcino Pelagrilli delivers an approach that will appeal to a wider circle of consumers, far outside hardcore Brunello enthusiasts. The bouquet peels off slowly with rich intensity and dark fruit notes of black cherry, plum, soft spice, tobacco and licorice. You don't get any of the bitter or thorny acidity that can sometimes make Brunello difficult to love, especially in its youth. This wine is appropriate for near or medium-term drinking.
91 Points Wine Enthusiast: This opens with dry underbrush, sun-baked soil and French oak aromas. The palate is equally brooding, its dried black cherry and blackberry fruit brushed with licorice and espresso flavors. Assertive, close-grained tannins leave a firm finish. Drink 2020–2027.
TENUTA DI BISERNO IL Pino di Biserno 2009 Tenuta di Biserno 2nd wine
TENUTA DI BISERNO IL Pino di Biserno 2009
品種：Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot,
Il Pino is the second wine of Tenuta di Biserno in Bibbona, in the hills just north of Bolgheri. The blend includes cabernets franc and sauvignon, merlot and petit verdot, and it’s luscious, gamey and distinctive, balancing the drive and freshness of franc with the richness of merlot. The balance feels complete, suited to short-term aging.
Robert Parker: 93
The 2009 Il Pino di Biserno already shows promising signs of a happy evolution. A blend of Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot, the wine is redolent of dried tobacco, black currant and rain-soaked earth. It delivers balanced power and concentration that drive a long, rich finish. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025. Tenuta di Biserno is the pride and joy of Lodovico Antinori, a man with a gifted talent for selecting the best sites for growing vines along the rugged coast of Tuscany. After selling Tenuta della Ornellaia years ago, Lodovico invested much of his energy and passion here.
Wine Spectator: 90
This is suave, with polished tannins and a rich texture framing black cherry, plum and chocolate notes, showing good grip on the long finish. Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2018. 6,000 cases made.
Wine Spectator , James Suckling , October 31, 2007 "One of the big developments is the release of two vintages of a new wine from Tenuta di Biserno. Biserno is the new family-owned winery of brothers Piero and Lodovico Antinori, located just outside the appellation of Bolgheri… I find the style of the property's wines already to be a fascinating combination of Ornellaia's and Sassicaia's, emphasizing the generosity of the former and the firmness and backbone of the latter."
Tenuta MaraMia 2013 Biodynamic Farming 年產15000支
Colour: Luminous immense ruby red.
Aroma: Full-bodied and rich immediately reminding of Romagna and Sangiovese. A hint of wild strawberries and ginger, with balsamic notes and a subtle almond finish.
Taste: The mouth-feel is full and round with thick elegant tannins Tenuta Mara Mia is a small vineyard in Romagna, Italy, which was started quite recently in 2000 by Giordano Emendatori in dedication to his wife Mara Emendatori. What’s interesting and completely unconventional at Tenuta Mara Mia is that the grapes are grown to the notes of Mozart and birds chirping. Nesting boxes for birds are purposely build on the vineyard to encourage them to live on the vineyard and eat the insects, maintaining the balance of this ecosystem and classical music like Mozart played to create an atmosphere of liveliness. Giordano and Mara believes that this creates a happy and thriving environment for the vines!
Tenuta San Guido Sassicaia 2015 D98/JS98/WS97/WA97/WE97
【#1 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2018】
如果說有一款酒激發並帶領 意大利葡萄酒走向現代化，那非Sassicaia"西施嘉雅" 莫屬。這款佳釀出產自Mario Incisa della Rocchetta侯爵擁有的Tenuta San Guido酒莊，葡萄園位在佛羅倫斯西南方近海的Bolgheri產區，是他周遊各國後所矢志要釀出世界級的頂尖酒款，透過朋友關係引進了來自波爾多一級莊"拉菲" Lafite Rothschild的葡萄株種，並採用波爾多的釀酒方式，雖然完全揚棄了意大利的傳統，但卻恰如其份地發揮並傳遞出Bolgheri產區terroir的最精彩之美味。Sassicaia第一個商業販售的年份為1968年，或許在當時並還沒有得到多數人的欣賞，但與波爾多頂級酒不相上下的優異品質，卻逐漸吸引識貨者的親睞。
在1978年，權威的Decanter 雜誌於倫敦舉辦了一場品酒會，由Hugh Johnson, Serena Sutcliffe與Clive Coates等著名評酒師所組成的評審團，在品評完參賽的11個國家共33支頂級酒後，評定1972年份的Sassicaia為全世界最佳的Cabernet Sauvignon紅酒。1985年份拿到Robert Parker100分後，自此奠定了Sassicaia非凡的地位，也影響了許多意大利酒莊朝向現代化的改革前進，成為了後來發展出Super Tuscan潮流的原動力之一。
98 pts Decanter:
The first Cabernet grapes were picked on September 10th under perfect conditions, with yields a little lower than average. As is usual at Tenuta San Guido, the fruit for Sassicaia was gently crushed and fermented in stainless steel using natural yeasts. After the malolactic fermentation, the wine spent two years in French oak prior to bottling. This is certainly an exceptional Sassicaia, with a sumptuous nose of ripe, creamy black and red fruit with cedar and spice notes. The colour is by no means dark (as is often the case with Sassicaia), and the impression on the palate is one of controlled power underpinned by gorgeous sweetness and flowing elegance. This is a very confident wine with real authority and presence, beginning with a magnificent attack of rich cassis and ripe griotte cherry followed by cigar box and leather notes, and a long finish of savoury bay leaf and minerals. It's deceptively structured, the tannins wonderfully ripe, creamy and finely textured, while the juicy acidity also suggests that this wine has a very long life ahead of it. This 2015 exhibits everything that you’d want from Sassicaia - and more - because of its winning combination of winemaking savoir-faire, world-class terroir, old vine fruit, and an outstanding vintage. It is unarguably stunning.
Terra di Lavoro, Galardi 2009 WA93
Terra di Lavoro, Galardi 2009
品種：80% Aglianico, 20% Piedirosso , 年產3萬支。
93 points Antonio Galloni, Wine Advocate (195), June 2011:
I suppose after so many important vintages it is only natural that Mother Nature takes a break. Terra di Lavoro is usually a huge wine in its youth, but not so in 2009. This is one of the most open, approachable young Terra di Lavoros I have ever tasted. The wine shows good intensity in its dark fruit, with layers of ash, smoke, crushed flowers and minerals that develop in the glass. The 2009 is a pretty, accessible Terra di Lavoro that will make a great introduction for readers who are new to the wine and don't want to wait for some of the more important vintages to come around. Terra di Lavoro is 80% Aglianico and 20% Piedirosso. The 2009 spent 14 months in French oak barrels, 70% new. Readers who want to see how some of the older vintages are developing may want to take a look at notes from my vertical tasting last year, published in Issue 190. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2029.
Terradora Pago Dei Fusi Taurasi DOCG 2008
品種：100 % Aglianico
靠近“龐貝城”這樣的酒品，展現了整個保證法定產區的卓越潛力，TAURASI托拉斯產區很快的在國際上獲得相當高的評價。此地曝曬在義大利東南方熱情的陽光之下，海床的沈積物增添了美妙的清新感，種植在火山之上更賦予此酒特殊的煙薰風味。 就如同最好的巴羅洛Barolo一樣，在正式的進入市場之前，一定要連皮一同浸泡並在法國橡木桶中以及瓶中長時間熟成。極佳的陳年潛力，2004年那支連Robert Parker也不吝嗇的給了95+。 此酒必須在大橡木桶中陳年14個月並且在瓶中陳年24個月才可在市場中販售。深紅寶石色，綻放著濃郁熟成的櫻桃香氣引出李子、甜辛香料、煙草、胡椒以及瀝青氣味。 濃郁但又像絲緞般柔軟的口感豐富純厚了酒體以及果實成熟度。黑櫻桃、李子、煙草、甘草、香薰氣味交織成華麗又強烈的結構。收尾持久、清晰，礦物的風味使此酒顯得異常的清新純淨。與橡木的結合只能說是一流！ A deep ruby red colour, a blooming aroma of ample ripe cherries, sweet spices, plum, tobacco, pepper, tar. Supple and silky on the palate, with concentrated texture mellowed into body richness and ripeness. Sweet and fine tannins, long fruity, spiced and toasty finish. Excellent cellaring potential, with bottle age, adding to the wine’s complexity.
Travaglini Gattinara Riserva 2011 JS93/WE93/WA91/vivino4.1(794酒評)
Travaglini Gattinara Riserva 2011
Region: Gattinara, Italy， 建議醒酒6小時
93 pts James Suckling:
You can smell the ripeness of the vintage with dried strawberry and orange peel character. Full body, chewy tannins and a savory finish. Rich and powerful. Drink or hold.
93 pts Wine Enthusiast:
Attractive aromas of rose, wild berry and aromatic herb lead the nose on this elegantly structured red. The bright palate offers crushed raspberry, juicy dark cherry, licorice and clove alongside firm polished tannins. A flinty mineral note energizes the finish. Hold for more complexity. Drink 2019–2026.
91 pts Wine Advocate:
Travaglini's 2011 Gattinara Riserva sees fruit sourced from the best rows of vines from various parcels located throughout the entire property. The wine is only produced in the best vintages. This is a more austere and structured wine with layered tones of black fruit, spice, licorice and campfire ash. There is a floral element of pressed rose petals that appears with delicate intensity at the back. In the mouth, this wine offers power and good structure.
Tua Rita "Giusto di Notri" Toscana 2012 來自第一支RP100分的意大利酒莊Tua Rita
Giusto di Notri Tua Rita 2012
94 points Antonio Galloni, vinous.com, September 2014:
A dark, brooding wine, the 2012 Giusto di Notri presents a compelling array of dark stone fruits, grilled herbs, smoke, tobacco and menthol. The power of Suvereto and these Bordeaux varieties are both super-expressive in a virile, imposing wine loaded with personality and gorgeous, totally resonant fruit. This is a terrific showing.
94 points James Suckling:
Gorgeous aromas of spices, from chili powder to dried thyme, plus dark fruits such as currants and berries. Full body, fine tannins and layers of fruit and flavor. Very attractive now but even better in two or three years. This commemorates the 20th anniversary of this wine. Balanced blend of cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc and merlot.
94 points Wine Enthusiast:
Made with Cabernet and Merlot, this offers scents of cedar, black currant, graphite and aromatic herb. Notes of licorice, ground pepper and tobacco accent the core of crushed blackberry and black cherry while polished tannins provide the framework. The lingering finish ends on a tobacco note.
93 points Robert Parker:
The 2012 Giusto di Notri is an IGT Toscana blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. It opens with rich, impenetrable concentration and luminous ruby highlights that shine bright against the inner darkness of this beautiful wine. Dark fruit, leather, spice, moist chewing tobacco and dark chocolate lift from the glass. The wine shows firm structure with silky tannins that render a polished texture on the finish.
Tua Rita Giusto di Notri 2011 WA94/AG92
80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot,
10% Cabernet Franc
94 pts Wine Advocate :
One of my favorite Tua Rita wines, the 2011 Giusto di Notri sees 60% Cabernet Sauvignon blended with 30% Merlot and a smaller component of Cabernet Franc. Inky dark and impenetrable, this is a hearty Tuscan red to pair with a succulent slab of charcoal-grilled steak and spicy barbecue marinade. The wine is exceedingly soft and opulent with gorgeous tones of black cherry, rum cake, crushed granite, cured meat, leather and exotic spice. This is a huge wine, in a resoundingly positive way that rewards a beautiful and intense drinking experience. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2028.
Tua Rita酒莊是由RitaTua與Virglilio Bisti在1984年成立，坐落在Livorno行政區中的Notri村。這裡是Alta Maremm，依傍著Sangiovese的種植區，是最適合種植像是Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Syrah, Chardonnay, Reisling和Traminer等等國際葡萄品種的區域之一。
隨著1994年第一次少量細桶釀造的100%Merlot “Redigaffi “釋出到市場，Tua Rita酒莊就獲了市場關注，2000年的年份更R成為了有史以來第一支被Robert Parker評價100分的意大利葡萄酒。與Masseto 和Messorio 並列Toscana 頂尖的3大100%Merlot紅酒。
其實在Redigaffi的成功前，酒莊的第一款酒便是今日介紹的波爾多式混釀的Giusto di Notri , 1992年推出市面已收到大量訂單。在酒莊收入大增之下，不斷提升釀造設備和悉心照顧葡萄園，此酒近年大獲好評(分數如下)。
Tua Rita Perlato del Bosco Rosso 2013 RP93,JS92,AG91
Tua Rita Perlato del Bosco Rosso 2013
93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate( Jan 2017):
The 2013 Perlato del Bosco is a pure Sangiovese from a vineyard located just beyond the property's main house. This is Tua Rita's biggest seller when it comes to the USA market and with good reason. It shows a unique identity with bright berry nuances backed by tangy spice, candied orange peel and blue flower. I'm also told that this is the most difficult wine to make. Sangiovese is a difficult grape to manage and special root stocks (33-19) were selected to delay ripening in order to produce smaller and more flavorful clusters. This in itself is a risky proposition because the chances of bad weather increase the longer you wait before harvest. The wine sees eight months in neutral barrique. The bouquet shows a floral component with rose petal and lavender. In the mouth, it offers amazing potential and fullness. This is an amazing value-buy.
92 points James Suckling (Aug 2015):
This is pure sangiovese that builds on the palate with hazelnuts, orange peel and thyme. Full-bodied, yet racy and beautiful. Very balanced and impressive. Drink now.
91 points Vinous( Oct 2017):
The 2013 Perlato del Bosco is wonderfully finessed in the glass, with silky tannins and expressive aromatics that give the wine its sense of polish. Sweet red berries, mint, cinnamon and wild flowers add nuance on the rich, expansive finish. This is a classic example of Suvereto Sangiovese, where the warm, dry weather yields ample, generous wines. There is plenty to like here.
Valdicava Rosso di Montalcino 2013
Valdicava Rosso di Montalcino 2013
90 Points Antonio Galloni - Antonio Galloni's Vinous, February 2015:
Valdicava's 2013 Rosso di Montalcino is full of floral and dark red/purplish stone fruit notes. The freshness of the year comes through in the wine's aromatic complexity and nuance. The finessed, long finish is particularly of note. I tasted the 2013 from steel just prior to bottling.
Vietti Barolo Castiglione 2008
Vietti Barolo Castiglione 2008
產區：Barolo, Piedmont, Italy
品種：100% Nebbiolo, 50326 bottles made.
Winemakers' Notes: The Barolo Castiglione deftly balances the open, radiant personality of the vintage with considerable underlying structure. Warm, dense and full-bodied, the Barolo Castiglione flows effortlessly across the palate with generous fruit and fabulous overall balance. The grapes are selected from vineyards located in Castiglione Falletto, Monforte, Barolo and Novello where the vines are planed an average of 4.800 vines per hectare.
94 Points Wine Advocate - "The 2009 Barolo Castiglione delivers a radiant but subdued quality with polished notes of dry mineral, black fruit, tar, licorice, leather and many more levels of complexity. This entry-level Barolo demonstrates that great results are achieved in 2009."
92 Points Wine Spectator - "Features cherry and strawberry fruit up front, with tobacco and earth notes introducing the dense structure and licorice and leather flavors. Loosely stitched, yet harmonious and long. Best from 2016 through 2030."
Zenato Amarone Classico 2007 WA94/WE93/WS93
目前係市面買到的Amarone一般都是年輕的年份，老少少的都價錢飛升。今日到貨 2007年 Zenato Amarone Classico, 是繼Amarone酒王 Quintarelli 和 Dal Forno 之後的最佳選擇, 用波爾多的說法就是"超二級"，係Amarone 中流砥柱。 Zenato Amarone Classico 2007，WA94/WE93/WS93/vivino 4.4(1147酒評)。
94 pts Wine Advocate (Feb 2012):
The 2007 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico boasts fabulous intensity and richness. This is an especially heady, port-like Amarone imbued with tons of depth. Chocolate, black cherries, leather and spices wrap around the serious, palate-staining finish. The 2007 needs quite a bit of time, but it is hugely promising. Readers who appreciate a big, powerful style of Amarone will love Zenato’s 2007. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2027.
Zenato酒莊，來自於莎士比亞筆下羅密歐與茱麗葉的故鄉，浪漫之都 唯羅納(Verona)，至今擁有50年歷史，以生產優質的 Amarone 與Valpolicella 著稱，獲得國際評審的讚譽。
