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.
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.
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
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.
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.
Carpineta Fontalpino Chianti Classico 2013
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.
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."

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.
Castello di Ama Chianti Classico San Lorenzo 2011 JS96/WE93/WS92/WA91
Castello di Ama Chianti Classico San Lorenzo 2011
96 points James Suckling:
This has a dusty character on the nose with soil, dried fruit and blueberry. Flowers too. Full body, firm tannins and a fresh finish. Tight and structured. Shows wonderful depth of fruit and beauty. Chewy. Better in 2016.
93 points Wine Enthusiast:
Elegant and structured, this offers aromas that suggest sunbaked earth, ripe woodland berry, chopped mint and a whiff of new leather. The taut, polished palate offers juicy black cherry, ripe raspberry, orange peel, anise and grilled herb alongside austere, fine-grained tannins that give it a firm finish. Drink 2018–2023.
92 points Wine Spectator:
Broad and intense, exhibiting floral, cherry, rhubarb, leather and almond notes. Well-knit and vibrant, with a compact finish. Should stretch out nicely. Best from 2016 through 2026.
91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
The 2011 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione San Lorenzo is loaded tight with ripe fruit nuances of strawberry, black fruit and prune. San Lorenzo shows a riper, jammy quality of fruit next to Vigneto Bellavista. But, like that other Gran Selezione expression, this wine excels in terms of mouthfeel with polished tannins and a great sense of energy and momentum.
Ciacci piccolomini d'Aragona Brunello di Montalcino 2011
Ciacci piccolomini d'Aragona Brunello di Montalcino 2011
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)

Crognolo Tenuta Sette Ponti 2013
Crognolo Tenuta Sette Ponti 2013
品種：90% Sangiovese, 10% Merlot
95 Points James Suckling - "Lots of currants, blueberries, vanilla and floral character on the nose and palate. Full body, fine tannins and a fresh finish. Edgy contrast of acidity, ripe fruit and wood. Stylish, savory and delicious. A blend of sangiovese and merlot. One of the best values amongst Super Tuscan reds. Drink in 2016."
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.
Fattoria Le Pupille SAFFREDI 2011 JS95/WA93
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.
Fontalloro Felsina 2012 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)
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.
Guidalberto Tenuta San Guido 2011 意大利名莊Sassicaia副牌 Vinous93/RP92/JS92
Guidalberto, Tenuta San Guido 2011
品種：60% Cab Sau, 40% Merlot
93 points Antonio Galloni, vinous.com, March 2013:
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. San Guido hit it out of the park with the 2011 Guidalberto.
92 points Monica Larner, Wine Advocate (208), August 2013:
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.
Guidalberto Tenuta San Guido 2013 意大利名莊Sassicaia副牌 WA93/WE93/JS92
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。
Il Poggione Brunello di Montalcino 2012 WA95+/WE93/JS93/WS92
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.
IL Poggione Brunello di Montalcino 2013 RP96/WS93/JS92
酒評: 細緻的乾漿果、黑櫻桃、皮革、香草等氣息， 以淡淡的煙草味收尾。中等至高酸度，單寧強而順滑，酒體飽滿，整體感覺複雜醇厚，開瓶透氣一小時後更佳。
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 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.
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.
La Magia Rosso di Montalcino 2014
La Magia Rosso di Montalcino 2014
Produced from the same grapes as our Brunello, but with a different vinification process and aged for only six months in ‘third use’ casks, this youthful wine possesses personality in abundance, typified by lively fruit and a fresh appeal that makes it suitable for all occasions, formal and informal.
La Palazzetta Brunello di Montalcino 2010
La Palazzetta Brunello di Montalcino 2010
產區：Tuscany, Italy (DOCG)
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.
Le Volte dell' Ornellaia 2013
Le Volte dell' Ornellaia 2013
品種：50% Merlot, 30% Sangiovese, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon
92 Points James Suckling - "A young red with solid tannin power and plenty of ripe and flavorful fruit. Currants and ripe strawberries. Full body, and a fresh finish, although this is a little austere and hard now. Try in 2017 as tannins soften."
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（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)

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.
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."
