Chambolle Musigny Domaine Arnoux Lachaux 2014
Chambolle Musigny Domaine Arnoux Lachaux 2014 (AM88-91)
This wine is the result of a blend of five different blocks all located at the top of Chambolle’s slopes. They have of a north-east exposition which allows them to benefit from nice sunshine. The soil is made of clay and limestone and is very rocky, which confers to the wine this mineral caracteristic of the appellation. The average age of the vines here is 45 years old. Global size : 1 ha 85 .
88-91 points Allen Meadows, Burghound.com (61), January 2016:
This is at once more elegant and spicier as well with its pretty combination of red currant, cherry, lavender and sandalwood hints. There is a sleek and lacy mouth feel to the refined middle weight flavors that exude a fine bead of minerality on the balanced, delicious and persistent finale. This is very Chambolle in style. Drink: 2020+
Chateau Bourgneuf 2009
Chateau Bourgneuf 位處波爾多右岸波美侯村Pomerol的西邊高地，年產僅5000箱
Clos des Papes Chateauneuf-du-Pape Blanc 2014 WS96/JD91
20% Grenache Blanc,
96pts Wine Spectator :
There's a lot going on here, with a big core of yellow apple, white peach and wet straw notes offset by accents of citrus oil and bitter almond. A hint of brioche shows on the finish, but this is decidedly stony in feel at the end. The elements should meld beautifully with cellaring. Best from 2016 through 2026.
91 pts Jeb Dunnock(eRobertParker.com) :
The 2014 Châteauneuf du Pape Blanc incorporates slightly less Grenache Blanc than normal and has more Bourboulenc and Picpoul in the blend. As always, it didn’t go through malolactic fermentation and was raised all in stainless steel. Hitting 13.6% natural alcohol, its medium-gold color is followed by lots of apple, lemon curd and citrus-like fruit characteristics that give way to more spice, toast and minerality with time in the glass. Vibrant, fresh and borderline racy, while not being lean, it’s an outstanding white that will benefit from a year in bottle and have a graceful evolution for another decade or more. As I commented in my recent retrospective article, Clos des Pape is one of the reference point estates for traditional, age-worthy Châteauneuf du Pape.
Chateau Pavie Macquin 2013 波爾多St-Emilion 1B級
Chateau Pavie Macquin 2013
品種： 80% merlot, 20% cabernet franc
93 points Wine Enthusiast:
This is a bold, ripe, fruity wine, perfumed with fruit that's already attractive. The tannins are dry, but balanced with the fruit. A good choice for medium-term aging.
93 points James Suckling:
This is structured and strong for a 2013 with white truffle and bright blueberry character. Full-bodied with firm and silky tannins. Bright finish. Better in 2020.
92 points Wine Spectator:
This has a showy personality, with beautifully aromatic raspberry, blueberry and plum flavors that drape wonderfully over the velvety structure. Alluring black tea and warm plum cake notes add nuance on the finish. This has gained steadily since the barrel tasting. Drink now through 2023. 3,100 cases made.
Château Pavie Macquin is one of the most improved Saint-Emilion wines of the last 20 years. Over that time frame, and especially since the turn of the new century, it has also become one of the most refined wines of Saint-Emilion. This simple truth was recognized in September of 2006, when Pavie Macquin was promoted to the prestigious level of Premier Grand Cru Classé in the reclassification of Saint Emilion's chateaus.
D'Arenberg Dead Arm Shiraz 2005 (RP95)
D'Arenberg Dead Arm Shiraz 2005
產區：McLaren Vale, South Australia
95 Points Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate - "d'Arenberg's flagship is the 2006 The Dead Arm Shiraz. Opaque purple-colored, the nose is reticent but gives up aromas of meat, bacon, game, truffles, blueberry, and blackberry. Firm, layered, and complex, this beautifully rendered Shiraz demands a decade of cellaring. It will be superb from 2018 to 2036. d'Arenberg has been owned and operated by the Osborn family since its inception in 1912. The portfolio, with a focus on the Rhone varieties, is wide ranging and value-oriented from top to bottom. The winery produces a bevy of value priced reds and whites that were reviewed in Issue 178. They should not be overlooked. At the higher end of the portfolio there is one white wine on which to report.
95 Points James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion - "The Dead Arm rarely fails to deliver an uncompromising essay on McLaren fruit; deeply concentrated with levels of dark chocolate, blackberry, nuances of florals and a freshness that belies its weight and power. Good value."
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!
Chateau du Domaine de l'Eglise 2009 NM92
SENA 2014 (375ml) 半支裝 JS97/WA95/WS92
SENA 2014 ( 375ml )
Blend: 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Carmenere,11% Malbec, 8% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot
97 points James Suckling:
Complex aromas of blueberry, rose petal, licorice, and currant. Full body, ultra fine tannins and a fresh and clean finish. Balanced and very refined. A wonderful purity and beauty. Give it three to four years to come together but already a beauty.
95 points Wine Advocate:
The blend for the 2014 Sena was 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Carmenere, 11% Malbec, 8% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot from their stony soils. The different grapes are carefully fermented separately and with different regimes of maceration and extraction but always looking for elegance within the natural power of the zone. The final blend was transferred to French oak barrels, 67% of them new (a percentage that seems to be slowly going down), for the elevage of 22 months. This time, some 5% of the volume carried out its aging in new Stockinger foudres. This is very much in line with the 2013 and the direction set by that cool year. The wine is very harmonious, elegant within the house style. Another superb vintage of Sena. This should age effortlessly in bottle. 60,000 bottles were filled in March 2016.
Chateau du Tertre 2003 波爾多五級莊 JS92/RP90
Chateau du Tertre 2003
92 points James Suckling:
This is very new world in the nose with loads of ripe, raisiny, and spicy fruit. Full bodied, with a round and chewy finish. Very extracted, but I think it will come around very well in the end.
90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
This dark ruby/purple-colored, luscious, soft, already complex 2003 offers alluring notes of smoked herbs, black cherry jam, camphor, white chocolate, and licorice. Medium to full-bodied, silky-textured, heady, and impossible to resist...
Domenico Clerico Barolo "Ciabot Mentin" Ginestra 2009 RP94/JS93/ST93/WS92/JR18
Domenico Clerico Barolo Ciabot Mentin Ginestra 2009
品種：100% nebbiolo. 年產 5500 支, 16 months barrique, constant tastings allow us to select the best barriques, then assembling barrel.
16 months in barrel (50 hL), +2 years bottles.
94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (Jun 2013):
One notch down on the intensity ladder is the 2009 Barolo Ciabot Mentin. Less obvious and definitely more flirtatious, this gorgeous wine playfully dangles subtle hints of licorice, dark fruit, anisette and Middle Eastern spice in front of your nose. They morph and transform into something new and unexpected with each swirl of the glass. There’s enough flesh here to keep the wine grounded, but there’s also enough tonic freshness to keep it from feeling heavy.
93 points James Suckling (Jan 2014):
A beautiful ripeness of fruit here with dried strawberries and sliced mushroom aromas. Full body, with polished and round tannins and a cedar, mahogany and dried berry aftertaste. Needs at least two or three years of bottle age.
93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar (April 2014):
Medium red. Less roasted than the Briccotto, offering aromas and flavors of cherry, mocha, coffee and spices. Less fat and full in the mouth but shows more lift and energy. A bit youthfully clenched, but the wine's firm tannic spine and impressive length suggest it will be a beauty with a few years of aging. Despite being situated at high altitude, these are the first Barolo vines Clerico picks. The acidity here is a very healthy 6.3 grams per liter.
92 points Wine Spectator:
A fresh, vibrant red, whose eucalyptus, tea, cherry and leather notes are backed by dense, ripe tannins. Balanced on the firm side, with a coating of dusty tannins on the long finish. Give this some time. Best from 2017 through 2032.
18/20 points Jancis Robinson (Jun 2013):
Commune of Monforte d’Alba. Concentrated ruby with orange tinges. Balsamic fruitcake and cardamom skin. Fine cherry fruit with a layer of coating tannins. Intense, long and with a hint of vanilla. Quite spectacular and modernist but executed with huge skill.
Roc de Cambes 2012 (AG93/NM92)車房酒
Roc de Cambes, Cotes du Bourg 2012
93 points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous (Jan 2016):
A dark, imposing wine, the 2012 Roc des Cambes is distinctly dark and brooding. Black cherries, smoke, licorice, tar and dark spices fleshed [?]. Vertical in style and quite structured, the 2012 could use another few years in bottle to fully come together, which will also help the chewy tannins to integrate a bit more fully. Roc des Cambes is 75% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Malbec that spend 18 months in 100% new French oak.
93 points Tim Atkin MW, timatkin.com, April 2013:
One of the superstar châteaux of the Bordeaux Côtes, François Mitjavile's red is always a wine with plenty of texture and concentration, not to mention alcohol in 2012. This is intense, aromatic and plush, with raspberry aromas, a hint of leafy complexity, a rich, complex texture and firmish tannins. Drink: 2020-28
90-92 points Neal Martin, RobertParker.com, May 2013:
Interesting comparing the Roc des Cambes with the Tertre-Roteboeuf, for here there is a little more drive and intensity on the nose, more volume emanating from the glass with pomegranate and cranberry scents intermingling with fresh gravel notes. The palate is soft and sensual on the entry with layers of fleshy red berry fruit. The tannins have a Burgundy-like finesse and there is a lovely touch of Schezhuan pepper numbing the tip of the tongue on the finish. This will be a fascinating Roc des Cambes.
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."
Chateau La Croix De Gay 2004
La Gravette de Certan 2006 RP89/WS91
Vieux de Certan副牌
89 pts Robert Parker:
Another strong effort is their wine made from young vines, the sexy, soft, lush, even opulent, dark ruby-colored La Gravette de Certan. This is a richly fruity wine, but also complex and evolved. I was stunned by how good it is and recommend it highly. It could and should be drunk over the next decade.
Chateau Lafon Rochet 2010 波爾多4級莊 NM94/WE93/WS91
Chateau Lafon Rochet 2010
67% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot and the rest Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc.
94 pts Neal Martin, RobertParker.com, February 2014:
Tasted blind at the Southwold Bordeaux 2010 tasting. Wow - this Saint Estèphe appears to be just getting into its stride. This seems reticent on the nose at first, but modest coaxing reveals scents of blackberry mixed with gravel and incense. The palate is medium-bodied with gentle grip, firm tannins and a pleasant salty tang on the finish. Masculine and structured, with good persistency and a lovely austere personality, Basile Tesseron and his team have overseen an aloof but engaging Lafon-Rochet that could be the dark horse of the appellation. Tasted January 2014.
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.
Clos Rene Pomerol 2001
Chateau La Croix de Gay Pomerol 2009 WE93/WA90/vivino4.1(208酒評)
Chateau La Croix de Gay Pomerol 2009
Region: Pomerol, Bordeaux, France
93 pts Wine Enthusiast:
Powerful tannins give this wine its dense, concentrated character. It is dark and dense, very dry at this stage and needing at least 10 years to round itself out. However, the presence of fruit promises a good future.
90 pts Wine Advocate:
A blend of 95% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc from this well-situated vineyard on the plateau of Pomerol, which is owned by Chantal Lebreton, this wine has 13.5% alcohol, somewhat low in this vintage, but it displays plenty of kirsch, sweet cherries and red currants along with some sandy/loamy soil and roasted herb notes in a very sexy, up-front, lush, medium to full-bodied style.
Clos du Marquis 2006 雄獅副牌 JS92-94/WS92/WE91
Clos du Marquis 2006 雄獅副牌
92-94 pts James Suckling, WineSpectator.com, March 2007
Wonderful aromas of blackberries, minerals and dried flowers. Full-bodied, with a lovely core of cool fruit. Racy and caressing tannins. Excellent. 13.2 percent Cabernet Franc--more than normal. Better structured than normal, too.
92 pts Wine Spectator:
Offers violet and blackberry on the nose, with tar. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a fruity, minerally aftertaste. Long and silky. Very serious for the vintage. Best after 2013.
91 pts Wine Enthusiast :
A beautifully perfumed, dark-colored wine, bursting with black plums and violet perfumes. It is, on the surface, delicious, but taste beneath that and it becomes complex and dark, with immense but velvet tannins, suggesting considerable potential.
89+ pts Neal Martin, RobertParker.com, May 2016:
The 2006 Clos du Marquis has a typical bouquet for this cru with forward and lavish black cherries, cassis and incense aromas, perhaps more oaky than some of its peers. The palate is medium-bodied with an insistent grip in the mouth. This is surprisingly backward with impressive density. You can feel the weight of black fruit in the mouth, although it needs more finesse and precision on the finish. Give this another five years and you could have a "dark horse" on your hands.
Chateau Lafleur-Gazin 2001 (vivino4.0)
Chateau Lafleur-Gazin 2000
位於波爾多波美侯Pomerol村， Chateau Lafleur-Gazin 坐落於兩大名莊 Lafleur 和 Gazin 之間(三個莊同屬一個家族)，自1976年起由 Jean- Pierre MOUEIX 家族管理(Trotanoy/La Fleur Petrus/Hosanna 同一釀酒團隊)平均樹齡30年，80%Merlot, 20%Cabernet Franc。
產區：Pomerol, Bordeaux , France
88 pts Wine Advocate:
"A sweet, superficial, but attractive effort, the 2000 La Fleur-Gazin reveals chalky tannin in the finish. A dark ruby/purple color is accompanied by ripe plum, prune, and berry fruit, medium body, and plenty of structure as well as tough tannin. Anticipated maturity: 2003-2014."
Chateau d'Issan 2014 波爾多三級莊
Chateau d'issan 2014
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.
Chateau de Saint Cosme Gigondas Valbelle 2009 (WS94)
Chateau de Saint Cosme Gigondas Valbelle 2009 (WS94)
Blend: 90% Grenache and 10% Syrah
#10 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2011
94 Wine Spectator : A gorgeous wine, with an interplay of ripe, dripping blackberry, cassis and plum sauce flavors providing the flesh, offset by smoldering charcoal, tobacco and bittersweet cocoa notes, which provide the angles. The long finish has nice intensity. Best from 2012 through 2022. 1,175 cases made.
Winemaker notes: We didn't release Valbelle in 2008 because the wine had been blended into the Gigondas Classique. This is nice to see Valbelle coming back in 2009 with its very specific style. It generates complexity, depth and balance. 2009 Valbelle combines well the tannic power of the vintage with the roundness and the softness always found in Valbelle. Find notes of strawberry, thyme, white pepper and graphite.
Kay Brothers Block 6 Shiraz 2007 JH94/WA93
Kay Brothers Block 6 Shiraz 2007
產區：McLaren Vale, South Australia
The Block 6 vineyard dates back to 1892. Over 110 years later four acres still remain, cropping at extremely low levels, the fruit is of extreme quality. The wine is an excellent example of a big, rich & brooding McLaren Shiraz. After basket pressing & fermentation in open top fermenters built in 1896, the wine is matured for over 2 years in new American & Baltic oak producing intense flavour & great longevity. A wine which will reward patience well.
Vega Sicilia Alion 2013 WA94/JR17+
西班牙國寶級Vega-Sicilia 加持，飲家必選: Vega Sicilia Alion 2013
Vega Sicilia 買下了15公里外的破產的Bodegas Liceo, 成立Alion, 目標是"Born to make History" 。1991年成為莊主Pablo Alvarez 第三個仔(大仔酒王Unico, 二仔Valbuena, 和96年出世的細仔Pintia)。100% Tempranillo, 來自靚區Ribera del Duero的靚村Valbuena, Pesquera, Padilla, 30年樹齡, 14個月全新法國最出名橡木桶(Radoux/Taranssaud/Saury/Vicard), 出售前入瓶再15個月以上係酒窖陳年。
94 pts Luis Gutierrez, Wine Advocate (229), February 2017:
The careful selection of the grapes and the work directives even for the purchased grapes has clearly paid off in the 2013 Alión, which has great freshness and perfume. It was cropped from a relatively normal growing season, but with a cold September with some rains that provoked a slight delay in the picking and especially the seed for a severe sorting of the grapes. It's considered a challenging vintage in general, and the bottles produced are slightly less than in the healthier 2012. It's always pure Tempranillo from over 30-year-old vines in different villages: Pesquera, Padilla, Moradillo... It fermented in oak vats with indigenous yeasts after a three-day cold soak, followed by malolactic and 12-14 months in new French barriques. It might be a lighter vintage for Alión, but one that has a subtler profile and harmony. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine tannins, with a thread of acidity going through its core and lifting it up. An elegant Alión. 260,000 bottles and some larger formats were filled in May 2015.
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.
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.
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.
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)。
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.
