Altesino Brunello di Montalcino 2010

產區:Tuscany, Italy

品種:100% Sangiovese

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.

Biondi Santi Tenuta Greppo Annata Brunello di Montalcino 2011

HK$850HK$780

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.

Exceptional vintage. A very good season with wet spring and dry summer. A dry harvest. *Re- corked in 2007* . Only grapes that come from the Estate vineyards are vinified. The bottles should be placed vertically at least one week before serving, so that the coloured semi crystalline sediments drop to the bottom. Uncork and pour out a bit of wine from the bottles at least 8 hours before serving.

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.

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."

Ciacci piccolomini d'Aragona Brunello di Montalcino 2011
產區:Tuscany, Italy
品種:100% Sangiovese
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)

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."

Fontalloro Felsina 2012

100% Sangiovese

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)

Gaja/Pieve Santa Restituta Brunello di Montallcino 2009

Hong Kong Price 價錢:
HK$500
Italy, Tuscany
HK$500HK$480

Gaja/Pieve Santa Restituta Brunello di Montallcino 2009

deally drink now through to 2025. Decant for 2 hours. 

The deep ruby colour promises a classic wine of superb quality. The nose backs up that promise with intense aromas of cherry, ripe black fruits, herbs and a slight earthiness. The palate provides intense flavours of black and red fruits, spices, herbs and wildflowers. The wine is well structured, has great acidity which marries perfectly with the ripe tannins. The lingering finish provides a closing offer of rich chocolate at the end. 

Match this with rich beef dishes, venison, game, roasted meats and strong cheese. 

The winery’s attention to detail when making its wines are what makes this wine so good. The hand harvested grapes are fermented in stainless steel vats for four weeks. It is then aged in new and old oak barriques for 12 months followed by a further 12 months in bottle prior to release. 

The Gaja family acquired the Pieve Santa Restituta estate in 1994. It is situated in the south west of the Brunello di Montalcino appellation, and comprises of 40 acres of vineyards. The name comes from the church of Santa Restituta which is located on the estate. It has been beautifully restored by the family and it now forms the subject of the wine labels. 

The family has now also obtained a further 25 acres in the north east of the appellation and has developed a state of the art winemaking facility and below ground cellar which reduces the impact on the environment – a subject very close to the family’s heart.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

產區:Tuscany, Italy

品種:100% Sangiovese

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)

Mastrojanni Brunello di Montalcino 2011 

品種:100% Sangiovese

產區:Montalcino, Tuscany, Italy

93 Points The Wine Advocate - "Mastrojanni is on a roll. This extraordinary estate has been enjoying the spotlight lately and very much deserves the attention. I'm adding my name to a long list of their fans. The 2011 Brunello di Montalcino is a classic expression of Sangiovese with soft lines and enduring flavors. You do feel some of the vintage heat, but the ripeness is contained thanks to the delicate and nuanced nature of its fruit. It also shows enormous grace in the mouth. The wine is silky and svelte with long, polished tannins. Mastrojanni's wines are linked by a common characteristic that is easy to identify in most vintages. That common denominator is excellent oak management."

93 Points James Suckling - "Round and rich with beautiful decadent fruit and richness. Orange peel. Full and juicy. Intense dried fruit and beauty. Sexy. Drink now."

92 Points Wine Enthusiast: Intense red berry, cake spice, new leather and sunbaked earth aromas meld together. The big, chewy palate delivers fleshy black cherry, toast, coffee, anise and grilled herb alongside solid, ripe tannins. You'll also get a nod of alcohol on the finish.

90 Points Wine Spectator: This is savory, boasting licorice, saline, soy and sweet berry flavors. Smooth and fleshy, with fine balance and a lingering savory aftertaste. Drink now through 2024.

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.

Aromas of exotic spice, Spanish cedar and sandalwood will move to the background as characteristic tones of dark fruit and balsam herb move forward.

Hong Kong Price 價錢:

HK$360

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.

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!

Tua Rita Perlato del Bosco Rosso 2013

產區:Tuscany, Italy

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.

90 Points Antonio Galloni - Antonio Galloni's Vinous, February 2015:

Valdicava's 2013 Rosso di Montalcino is full of floral and dark red/purplish stone fruit notes. The freshness of the year comes through in the wine's aromatic complexity and nuance. The finessed, long finish is particularly of note. I tasted the 2013 from steel just prior to bottling.
