This family owned domaine is located near the village of Gassin that is considers as one the most beautiful villages in France. The grape are hand harvested and the final steps of vinification are done by Maîtres Vigneron de Saint Tropez.
A blend of Grenache, Syrah, Rolle and Cinsault, with a beautiful rose gold color, a tempting fresh nose that blends spring flowers, strawberry, cassis a touch of hibiscus and red berries, the body is medium with pleasant acidity and a fresh fruity finish.
A lovely well made rose to celebrate the spring and upcoming summer.

Chateau Buena Vista

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

Ming L
9.0

First impression: the bottle is heavy! Probably the heaviest bottle from a US producer I have gotten a hand on. Good thing that what’s inside the bottle has the substance to back up the bottle weight.

The nose is relatively restrained with perfectly ripen plum, cassis, cedar, olive, cigar box, and touch of forest floor. The palate is more opulent than the nose suggested, with rich ripe black fruit core. Very good texture. Silky tannins.

Cantina del Signore

Il Putto Gattinara Nebbiolo 2017

Nose is so fresh. Hand crushed cherry juice. As it opens almost a bit meaty. Gets more dense. Intense spice. Blackberries. Some elegant library book. Totally different wine from 0-30 minutes. Quite fascinating. Actually amazing. A quirky but delicious wine. Sexy librarian.

Palate is similar. Fresh cherry juice. A hint of cherry licorice. Very mineral. Silky tanins.

As this opens intense cherry licorice. Better deliciousness. High level deliciousness. Almost sticks to the lips. Intense density. Darker fruits. Really clings to the lips and palate. Grabs the palate on the swallow.

Long finish.

This vintage is more a wine of hedonism than one of elegance (which is the house style) even though for a hedonistic wine it is quite elegant. As this opens it becomes very very intense. Spice. Concentrated fruit. Cinnamon. Clove.

Much more a more typical gattinara as opposed to a dorelli wine that was made in gattinara.

It’s great to see what a great winemaker like Dorelli does over vintages with different characters. The imprint of the elegant house style is always there but the vintage is there as well.
