Renieri Rosso Di Montalcino 2015
Fattoria La Massa 2015 JS94/WA92/Vinous/WS90
【店長推介，超值unbelievable value Super Tuscan】邊飲 邊原瓶醒酒3小時，香氣由黑加侖子、Rosemary，慢慢再出雲呢拿、香料，不過與3倍價錢的紅酒比香氣都唔算複雜；不過呢支的palate真係好平衡，單寧順滑，酸度恰當好處，架構工整，juice得包住成個口，谷出好多口水，相信再醒2小時更好。
Fattoria La Massa，La Massa 2015 JS94/WA92/Vinous/WS90/vivino3.9(938酒評) 60%Sangiovese, 25% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon and Alicant B.
La Massa is made up of grapes from 27 hectares of vineyards, all with southern exposure in the Golden Basin of Panzano. The vineyards are planted at 360 meters above sea level. The soil is a mixture of scaly clay and galestro (loose marl and limestone). The soils fall into three distinct geological formations; an undifferentiated complex of clayey schist and calcareous marl, a formation of scaly yellow and grey marl (galestro) and a third segment of large blocks or layers enclosed in a clayey matrix. The wine is aged in 20 percent new French and 80 percent one-year-old French oak barrels for 12 months. 94 Points, James Suckling "Extremely perfumed with currant, berry and rosemary aromas. Even some lavender. Medium to full body, very fine tannins and lots of fruit. A delicious and refined wine.” 92 Points, Wine Advocate "Warm notes of black cherry and blackberry. This is a velvety and richly textured blend that displays beautiful concentration and color saturation. This is an upfront and immediate wine that offers loads of beautiful intensity. You absolutely can't beat this unbelievable value from Tuscan.
Giampaolo Matta 從小生長在拿坡里，原本要接手家族所經營的皮革事業。但是 Giampaolo 是一個有著自我想法的人，他喜愛葡萄酒。當 90年代他來到 Tuscany 觀光，他突然發現這裡是他心儀已久的地方---他找到了他的新家。
雄心萬丈的 Giampaolo Motta 於是留在 Tuscany，買下位於 Panzano in Chicnti 地區的酒莊，這裡離佛羅倫斯和 Siena 約有30到 40分鐘的車程。Motta 在剛開始前幾年不斷的尋覓著自己的風格，之後很快的確立了要栽種 Sangiovese、Merlot 和 Cabernet Sauvignon，完全不理會 Chianti Classico DOCG 法令的枷鎖，釀製波爾多風格的葡萄酒。 現在 La Massa 酒莊佔地 25公頃，只生產 La Massa和 Giorgio Primo 兩款酒，酒莊年產量達 13萬瓶。如今 Giampaolo 有顧問Carlo Ferrini 從旁協助，旗艦酒 Giorgio Primo 於 1993年到 2001年連續獲頒 Gambero Rosso 的最高等級 Tre Bicchieri (三杯子)獎項。此外，更是受到 Robert Parker 和 Wine Spectator 等全球酒評家高度的評價。
Luce della Vite, Lucente 2016 JS92/WS90/WE90
Luce della Vite, Lucente 2016, (Luce 副牌) JS92/WS90/WE90/vivino4.0(775酒評)
Luce della Vite在意大利文中即為「生命之光」，它的血統高貴，係世界兩大名莊 Frescobaldi花之蝶 (之前有買 CastelGiocondo BdM 2009的酒友可知道一下，她是花之碟家族 另一支BdM) 與 美國Robert Mondavi的合作結晶。Frescobaldi 家族發跡於意大利中部的佛羅倫斯，早在中世紀就擁有橫跨政社經三方勢力。就酒史而言，它於1308年就已有釀酒紀錄，後來對於Sangiovese此一在地品種更有長足研究。1995年，它與美國加州的那帕谷的Robert Mondavi 家族合作，選在Montalcino西南方設置了The Luce Estate（露鵲莊園）。由於當地日照充足且夏季乾燥，有效幫助了莊園南部精華地帶的葡萄生長，產出的果實除了香氣豐富之外，再加上葡萄園本身處於海拔350至420公尺，在Montalcino地區屬於地勢偏高的地帶，也因此涼爽的夜間氣候，更增添了此園複雜多變的質感，Sangiovese在此展現了經典之外的魅力。
隨著Robert Mondavi的淡出市場，Frescobaldi家族買回了酒莊，但此園名聲未受影響，各年份都是玩家收藏的對象。The Luce Estate（露鵲莊園）目前主要生產著三款酒：旗艦款Luce（露鵲)，市場追逐者眾，葡萄主要來自莊園內南部的精華地帶，品種為Sangiovese與Merlot。此酒在紫羅蘭與黑櫻桃的風味之間還有一些辛香味，純淨而優雅，均衡且尾韻帶薄荷感，綿長而曼妙無比。Luce算是Montalcino區域內首款以Sangiovese與Merlot作調和的酒款。這樣的想法，某種程度也反映著意大利與美國兩大名莊合作的理念。不過在Montalcino，只有100%的Sangiovese才能掛上Brunello di Montalcino（DOCG），也因此Luce基本上仍是屬於地區餐酒。
至於Luce 也有少量生產的 Brunello di Montalcino ，主要來自77公頃葡萄園中的小小5公頃，酒款名則是Luce Brunello，平日不易得見 。
Lucente則是Luce的副牌酒，來自同一葡萄園較為東側的土地，也經過了至少12個月的小桶熟陳，酒價相對實惠。這些來自LUCE della VITE的美妙佳釀，閃耀著美妙的生命之光，點點滴滴，值得珍藏。 快點入貨啦！
92 pts James Suckling "Ripeness and intensity here with dark berries, dark chocolate, walnuts and sage on the nose, following through to a full body, round and chewy tannins and a ripe-fruit finish.”
90 pts Wine Enthusiast - "This blend of Merlot and Sangiovese opens with aromas of dark-skinned berry, violet, mocha and Mediterranean brush. The savory palate offers juicy Marasca cherry, star anise and a hint of espresso alongside velvety polished tannins."
Duemani CiFRA Cabernet Franc 2016
San Polo Brunello di Montalcino 2013 JS96/WE96/WA93/WS92
San Polo Brunello di Montalcino 2007
95 points Wine Enthusiast:
A stellar wine with incredible density, concentration and personality. Soft, smooth and supple until those still-young tannins appear on the close, giving the wine a firm backbone. Black fruit, cherry, rum cake, plum, black pepper and cured meat. A beautiful ensemble with deep, deep layers of beauty. Freshness too.
94 points James Suckling:
Interesting aromas of blackberries, mahogany and ginseng. Full body, with dried mushroom, fruit and black tea. Complex and delicious, with an impressive build up of tannins. Milk chocolate too. Best in 2015.
93 points Robert Parker:
The 2007 Brunello di Montalcino is gorgeous. It may be the very best wine I have ever tasted from San Polo. Sweet red cherries, flowers, mint and spices are woven together beautifully in this juicy, sexy Brunello. The 2007 keeps getting better with time in the glass. Readers looking for a Brunello that will drink well with a minimum of cellaring will find a lot of pleasure here. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025.
Altesino Brunello di Montalcino 2010 JS95
Altesino Brunello di Montalcino 2010
Altesino, Brunello di Montalcino 2010 (JS95/RP93) 表現得比較陰柔，有香草、香料類等比較複雜的香氣，口感細滑、優雅，有點飄逸, 可能因為我們習慣了 Brunello 的濃妝，北區的淡然看上去更似素顏、更具風土。 Altesino位處Montalcino 北區的。因北區比較涼，常常比中、南部的酒較圓潤或者平衡，更多風土的特點。然而，北區從來都是這個出名產區最不起眼的後花園，因為長久以來，當紅酒評人把光環全加在中、南部酒莊的頭上。
95 points James Suckling (Dec 2014): Wonderful decadent aromas of musk, orange peel and plum follow through to a full body, with soft tannins and a long and rich finish. Salty and savory. Layers of gorgeous fruit. Drink or hold.
93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (Feb 2015): Altesino's 2010 Brunello di Montalcino stands proud among its peers. No other wine I tasted among the new releases in Montalcino achieves this unique level of aromatic finesse and distinction. The bouquet is almost purely floral in character with a strong emphasis on pressed rose petal, dried violets and potpourri. The fruit tones are less emphatic and include bright cherry and red currant. In the mouth, the wine's compressed texture is accented by fennel seed and licorice. the 2009 vintage had more power and heat, but this version shows elegant restraint. 93+ (ML)
93 points Wine Spectator (Jun 2015): Expressive aromas of eucalyptus, juniper and wild rosemary give way to sweet berry flavors, though the juniper, rosemary and emerging mint accents linger. This is like a walk in the woods, with a fresh, elegant frame. Best from 2017 through 2030.
Fattoria Le Pupille SAFFREDI 2014 S96/WS93/WA92
Fattoria Le Pupille SAFFREDI 2011
*James Suckling: "A must-buy for super Tuscan lovers"*
近10年冒升得最快的意大利酒莊是Fattoria Le Pupille (位於Tiscana Maremma, 著名酒村Bolgheri以南)，她的旗艦酒 Saffredi 更從2010年起獲得James Suckling 及 Wine Advocate 等酒評家/機構大讚(分數如下)，成為super super Tuscan 新的一員。難道此酒是突然好飲? 非也! 女莊主Elisabetta Geppetti 在80年代中，二十歲時便接管她老爺的小酒莊Le Pupille。1987年釀出第一支酒，以仙遊的老爺"Fredi"命名的 "SAFFREDI"。第一個年份，1990年在市場售賣時，super Tuscan 教父, Giacomo Tachis被這款100% Cabernet Sauvignon 新酒吸引，便從旁指導。93年開始酒莊慢慢加入Merlot, Petit Verdot, 及Syrah 混釀。及至2000年，酒莊迎來了波爾多一級莊Latour 的釀酒師Christian Sommer加入，經過10年的努力，及逐漸降低新木桶比例(現在75%新)，Saffredi 表現出了地道風味的Bordeaux Blend。 今日介紹【Saffredi 2011年】JS95/WA93/AG92/vivino4.3(457酒評)， 年產僅27000支(拉菲的十份之一)，特價$560，比2012-2015年份便宜20%-30%, 歡迎Mix。
95 pts James Suckling (2014): I love the aromas of black truffles, rosemary, dark fruits, rose petals and stones. It's shows so many characteristics of Tuscany on the nose. Full body with super-fine tannins and a long finish. Tannins and all in place. Wonderful texture. Better in 2016 but hard not to drink now. 60% cabernet sauvignon, 35% merlot and 5% syrah.
Argiano Rosso di Montalcino 2013
Argiano Rosso di Montalcino 2013
紅桑果、野莓果香，香料及橡木香氣。有中等的丹寧及強勁的酸度，葡萄乾及成熟野莓果醬的味道，與大部分Sangiovese 一致，整體酸度高，適合配合意粉及薄餅等食物。 Rosso di Montalcino is deep ruby red in colour. It is medium bodied with a good concentration on the mid-palate. Elegant in the mouth, it is well balanced with tempting flavours of red berries, violets, menthol and earthiness.A generous wine with smooth, velvety tannins that will satisfy all Sangiovese lovers. The perfect companion at mealtimes, it is ideal paired with red meat, veal, bruschetta and all kinds of cheeses andpasta dishes
Guidalberto Tenuta San Guido 2015 意大利名莊Sassicaia副牌
Guidalberto, Tenuta San Guido 2013
品種：60% Cab Sau, 40% Merlot
93 points Monica Larner, Wine Advocate (219), June 2015:
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。
Castello di Ama Chianti Classico Riserva 2014 (RP92/WS90)
Castello di Ama Chianti Classico Riserva 2009
產區：Chianti, Tuscany, Italy
品種：80% Sangiovese， 20% Malvasia Nera, Merlot & Cabernet Franc.
92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (Jun 2012):
The 2009 Chianti Classico Riserva Castello di Ama is striking. Dark red cherries, flowers, mint, licorice and spices caress the palate in this fleshy, generous Chianti Classico. The radiance of the fruit is suggestive of a warm year, but the tannic profile, medium body and overall structure is more similar to that of a colder vintage. In 2009 Ama did not bottle their single vineyard selections; all of the best fruit went into the Castello di Ama bottling. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2029.
90 points Wine Spectator (Aug 2013):
Presents an enticing aroma, with lush cherry, plum, underbrush and chocolate notes carrying through on the palate. Complex, this will need time for the firm tannins to be resolved. Fine length. Drink now through 2022.
Fontalloro Felsina 1999 WA94/AG94/WE94/JS93/WS92
Fontalloro Felsina 2012
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)
Isole e Olena Cepparello 2009 Vinous 97/JS94/WA93 Screw Capsule
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.
Le Serre Nuove dell'Ornellaia 2012
Tenuta dell'Ornellaia "Le Serre Nuove" Bolgheri 2006
94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (Jan 2010) : It is fascinating to taste the 2006 Le Serre Nuove (magnum), the second wine of Ornellaia, in this setting, as it shows quite well, especially next to some of the Ornellaias from smaller vintages. Le Serre Nuove is naturally made to be more accessible than Ornellaia and contains a higher percentage of Merlot, which gives it a touch more roundness. The fleshy, generous 2006 Le Serre Nuove offers terrific balance in an enveloping, warm expression of this important vintage. I have little doubt that current vintages of Le Serre Nuove are actually better wines than the early vintages of Ornellaia, which highlights how much viticulture and oenology have developed here over the last 20+ years. The 2006 Le Serre Nuove is 50% Merlot, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Cabernet Franc and 6% Petit Verdot. The estate employs shorter fermentation and maceration times lasting 10-15 days and gives the wine 15 months in French oak, 25% new. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2021.
91 points James Suckling ( Nov 2010 ): This is always fruity and pretty, with a currant and plum character. On the palate this is full, soft, and juicy with tobacco, berry and a touch of vanilla. No need to wait, pull the cork tonight.
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.
Casanova di Neri Brunello di Montalcino 2007 WE95/WA93
Casanova di Neri Brunello di Montalcino 2007
95 points Wine Enthusiast:
This 2007 Brunello is a big, opulent pleasure bomb with lavish layers, loaded thickly on top of each other: Chocolate fudge, dark cherry, blackberry preserves, rum cake, prune, exotic spice, pipe tobacco, cola, hummus and leather. It shows huge personality, intensity and staying power too. All that density is backed by solid tannins and a steady firmness. Hold 10–15 more years. Editors' Choice
93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
The 2007 Brunello di Montalcino bursts from the glass with freshly cut flowers, violets, leather, licorice and black cherries. Firm underlying tannins lend vibrancy to the voluptuous fruit. The Casanova di Neri straight bottling – sometimes referred to as the “white label” – is made from some of the estate’s cooler sites. In 2007 the wine has more depth, fruit and overall harmony than is typically the case. Bright acidity frames the long, polished finish. In short, this is a fabulous wine from Giacomo Neri. Along with the 2006, the 2007 is one the best and most complete vintages I can remember tasting in some time. Most importantly of all, though, it is flat-out delicious. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2027.
Castello dei Rampolla “Sammarco” 2011 JS95/Vinous 95/ WA94/WS92/vivino4.1(221酒評)
Castello dei Rampolla “Sammarco” 2011
Region: Chianti, Toscana, Italy
95 pts James Suckling (Aug 2015):
Aromas of tar, chilis, raspberries and dark chocolate follow through to a full body with super velvety tannins and a long, long finish. Need three years to soften. Another superb blend of sangiovese and cabernet sauvignon from the organic estate in Panzano.
94 pts Wine Advocate (Oct 2015):
The fullness and generosity here is absolutely amazing. The 2011 Sammarco is one of the protagonists of this vintage. In fact, I think Sammarco represents the hot 2011 growing season better than any other wine from the Chianti Classico area. The bend this year is 94% Sangiovese with 6% Merlot (the breakdown between the two grapes is usually 90-10) and the wine is fermented with ambient yeasts. The bouquet is beautifully redolent of dark berry fruit, soft spice, licorice and cola. The wine's overall elegance and length are both impressive.
95 pts Antonio Galloni, vinous.com, October 2015:
The 2011 Sammarco is so youthful it almost tastes like a barrel sample! Dark, rich and inviting, the 2011 possesses notable concentration and depth, with round yet powerful tannins and a surprising level of freshness for the year. A host of black cherry, graphite, smoke, plum and lavender notes accompany the powerful finish. It will be quite some time before the 2011 is ready to drink, but there is plenty to look forward to.
Caiarossa Pergolaia Toscana IGT 2008 WS92
Blend: 85% Sangiovese, 10% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc, and 2% Cabernet Sauvignon
Wine Spectator 92pt
Very alluring for its balsamic, wild herb, sour cherry and raspberry flavors, this is well-proportioned, offering a muscular structure to provide support. Shows fine length, with a wild berry aftertaste. Drink now through 2020.
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.
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.
Castel Giocondo Brunello di Montalcino 2009 (JS94)
CastelGiocondo Brunello di Montalcino 2009
94 points James Suckling - "Wonderful depth and richness to this wine for 2009. It's full-bodied, with a clean, polished tannin texture and a long, long finish. Last for minutes on the palate. A triumph for the vintage."
91 points Vinous / Antonio Galloni - "Ripe, juicy and explosive on the palate, the 2009 captures many of the best qualities of the year. Sweet red cherries, flowers, spices and tobacco burst from the glass. All the elements are in gorgeous balance in a soft, supple Brunello with tons of near and medium-term appeal. This is a strong showing from Frescobaldi."

Argiano Brunello di Montalcino 2012 JS96/RP94/WS93/WE92
【#5 Top25 Brunello di Montalcino's of 2012, - James Suckling】
2012年確實係意大利Montalcino產區的靚年，Argiano Brunello di Montalcino (BdM) 2012更是出眾。100%Sangiovese, 兩個月前係Great Italy wine 試左，係Barolo,Barbaresco,Super Tuscan 面前，表現超級Elegant。
96 pts James Suckling:
Fantastically complex aromas of spices, dried flowers and plums follow through to a full body, integrated and polished tannins and a superb finish. This is a 2012 Brunello with it all. Drink in 2018.
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)。
Biondi Santi Tenuta Greppo Annata Brunello di Montalcino 2011
Biondi Santi Tenuta Greppo Annata Brunello di Montalcino 2011
93 Points Points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous, February 2016:
The 2011 Brunello di Montalcino Annata is silky, soft and open-knit, especially within the context of what has been the norm at Biondi Santi for the last few decades. Freshly cut flowers, red berries and mint all open up in the glass, but it is the wine's decidedly mid-weight structure that truly stands out. The 2011 is a very rare young Biondi Santi that will drink well pretty much upon release, as shocked as I myself am to write those words. The bright red cherry, raspberry and floral overtones have an almost Nebbiolo-sense of brightness. Drink 2017-2031
93 Points Monica Larner, Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate Feb 2016:
Jacopo Biondi Santi was already making wine at Il Greppo when the 2011 Brunello di Montalcino Annata was produced. His father, Franco Biondi Santi, would pass away in 2013 at the age of 91. The winemaking approach is unchanged despite the father to son transition. This wine shows extra richness and texture with focused fruit aromas that are graceful but also powerful. There are hints of ripe fruit with dried cherry and prune buried deep within the bouquet. In the mouth, this Brunello shows good structure and acidity with a slightly denser feel compared to past vintages.
Galatrona Petrolo 2010 RP96/JS95/Vious94/WS94
James Suckling 的10大 super super tuscans 之一， 100% Merlot, 來自意大利 Tuscany的 Galatrona Petrolo 2010
96 points Monica Larner, Wine Advocate (208), August 2013:
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.
Lisini Brunello di Montalcino 2008（WS93,WA92)
Lisini Brunello di Montalcino 2008
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)
La Magia Brunello di Montalcino 2012 (JS96)
La Magia Brunello di Montalcino 2012
產區：Montalcino, Tuscany, Italy
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.
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.
