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 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.
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。
