Feudo Maccari Saia Sicilia IGP 2015
June 01, 2018 90 Points Wine & Spirits

Fruit culled from bush-trained vines growing in the volcanic soils of Sicily’s torrid southeastern corner form the basis for this rich nero d’Avola. A year in French oak barriques imparted subtle spice and velvety tannins, but it’s the wine’s taut acidity that drives the flavors of black raspberry and licorice.

Aromas and flavors of currant, cherry, mineral and tobacco ply the sinewy texture of this red with searing intensity. Though taut and even austere now, this has fine balance and length.

Zind-Humbrecht Pinot Gris Rotenberg 2014
May 01, 2018 90 Points - World's Best Pinot Gris Buys Decanter

Clear, bright gold in colour. Sweet, fresh, limpid fruits on the nose - apple, pear, grape - and an angelica note as well. On the palate, too, this is a light-grained, dry, vividly flavoured Pinot Gris, with both freshness and structure, perfect for mealtime use.

Sourced from vines aged between 25 and 30 years old, this is a graceful yet forward wine with expressive aromas of ripe apricot and pear with a floral lift. The palate is concentrated but focused with mineral energy and vivid acidity. This is a dry style with serious structure and an impressive length.

Forest floor, chopped aromatic herb, blue flower and woodland berry aromas slowly emerge. The firm linear palate evokes pomegranate, sour cherry and culinary spice framed in tight fine-grained tannins and bright acidity.

Tenute Silvio Nardi Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2013

Aromas suggesting red woodland berry, crushed herb, blue flower and a whiff of exotic spice float from the glass. The tightly wound linear palate is ethereal and still primary, offering sour cherry and licorice alongside austere close-grained tannins that grip the finish.
