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 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.

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.

Montevetrano 2007

品種:Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Aglianico

Robert Parker 形容為“Sassacaia of the South.”

95 points Antonio Galloni, Wine Advocate (190), August 2010:

The 2007 Montevetrano is the product of an unusual vintage characterized by hot temperatures that were virtually uninterrupted throughout the year. Bright red fruit, flowers and spices are some of the nuances that emerge from this silky, beautifully balanced Montevetrano. The combination of explosive ripe fruit, richness and finesse is utterly breathtaking. The warmth of the vintage comes through in the wine's generosity, yet there are no suggestions whatsoever of over- ripeness. This is a magnificent Montevetrano. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2032.

94+ points Monica Larner, Wine Advocate (232), August 2017:

The 2007 Montevetrano suggests a more prominent presence of Cabernet Sauvignon, aromatically speaking, compared to the other wines in this mini retrospective. The percentage of grapes used is the same but this impression is reinforced by the warmth of the summer growing season and the exuberance of the fruit. Blackberry aromas are followed by spice, leather and tar. There are subtle notes of balsam herb and green peppercorn as well. The wine is structured and firm but not astringent. The tannins are softly integrated and fine in texture.

Mollydooker The Scooter 2014

Hong Kong Price 價錢:
HK$260
Australia, Mclaren Vale
HK$260HK$225

產區:Mclaren Vale, Australia

品種:Merlot

Winemaker's Tasting Note (The Scooter Mollydooker 2014): The Scooter attracts attention with its deep violet colour and profound fruit flavour. A perfumed nose of dark cherries, fresh plum and touches of caramel lead the way to a silky mouth feel of softened red currants and licorice spice. The subtle tannins, cedar oak and balance of rich fruit, beautifully exemplify this McLaren Vale Merlot.
