Colli Orientali Del Friuli Chardonnay 2016

9.5

I was thinking Corton-Charlemagne all night drinking this concentrated yet airy Friulian interpretation of Burgundies finest white wines. Enzo Pontoni is a master on so many levels and even in this rather warm vintage, his wines capture true complexity and multiple layers of flavour. No rush here. — 6 days ago

Rosso del Gnemiz Merlot Blend 2016

50% CS, 40% CF, 10% Merlot. This is certainly aiming for the highest pedigree of Bdx-blends, and getting there as well. Crushed white stones, serious minerality, wild fruits, plenty of spice elements and underlying acidity enabling flavours to retain freshness and length. Beautifully integrated all new oak here as well. It tastes... amazing, and it’s structure promises a very long and slow cellar evolution. Best from 2025-2040. This will rival ANY high end stuff available. — 20 days ago

I believe I've had 13 and 15; both very, very good, but 2016 is at another level. I'm sure it will hit state side within shortly. Don'r miss it!

One more question... the wine designation says “Merlot Blend.” Is that correct.
