Castello di Ama’s Purple Rose is gorgeous. Ample and radiant on the palate, with lovely silkiness, the 2017 Purple Rose is a serious wine endowed with tons of textural depth. Blood orange, star anise, crushed rose petals and mint add an attractive hint of exoticism. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, July 2018) — 13 days ago
Gaja did not produce their Rennina or Sugarille in 2012 due to a change in their oak program, so all of that fruit went into their Pieve Santa Restituta.
A minimum of an hour open is needed to give it the room necessary to stretch out and reveal the depth of its complexity. Black cherry, rose petal, tobacco, leather, clay pot, walnut, citrus peel, and earth, with some secondary truffle and fig nuances that both elevate the wine and remind you that you’re drinking Gaja. Excellent. — 3 days ago

Note : Antinori is always a pleasure to open! Today, the Pian delle Vigne with a cherry red color composed of copper chips. On the nose, we are on black fruits, spices and tobacco notes.

Antinori est toujours un plaisir à ouvrir ! Aujourd'hui, le Pian delle Vigne avec une robe rouge cerise composé d'éclats cuivrés. Au nez, nous sommes sur des fruits noirs, de l'épice et des notes de tabac. En bouche, des tannins profonds avec des saveurs de pruneaux, fruits secs et sous-bois. Un vin délicieux avec une longueur en bouche magnifique. — 5 days ago
Aged nose of sour cherry-drenched stems, dusty red fruit. This has cellared beautifully, Margaux-like but for the unmistakable dark red cherry and leather, lifted and layered, intense but restrained. Pure. Really needed 45 mins to sort out in decanter. Sublime, peaking but will sustain for a while. — 10 days ago
Gotta quote the Beatles on this one, “strawberry fields forever!” I don’t know how there is this much wine here for $12.00. Not shy whatsoever on the nose, palate, and finish. Smart integration of oak; it accentuates the fruit by adding nuances of clove, clay pot, and leather. So pretty as well. Potpourri and a pepper medley kick up the florals. Classic juicy tomato on the finish, but those creamy strawberry notes don’t seem to give up. Bravo 👏 — 11 days ago
