Kellerei Kaltern (Kaltern-Caldaro)

Quintessenz Kalterersee Classico Superiore Schiava 2018

MICHAEL COOPER DipWSET
9.0

Pale ruby. Light body, medium alcohol 13%, soft light tannins. Similar to a Pinot Noir or a Poulsard. The texture is very supple and silky, very glyceric. I was expecting higher acidity but I actually would put it in the medium to medium+ range. #schiava #altoadigewine #altoadige #italy — a year ago

Tenuta Sette Ponti

Oreno Toscana Super Tuscan Blend 2005

2005 Tenuta Settie Ponti Oreno Toscana

Our New Year wine is 2005 Tenuta Sette Ponti Oreno Toscana. After 17 years, the wine is still vibrant and strong. The tannins are still present but have mellowed. A wonderful glass of wine having a great balance between the fruits and the soft acidity.

新年最初のワインは、2005年Tenuta Sette Ponti Oreno Toscana、スーパータスカンブレンドを開けてみました。17年の時を経ても、生き生きと力強い。タンニンは感じるがほどよく柔らかい。フルーツと柔らかな酸の素晴らしいバランスが心地よいワイン。力強くもしなやかに変化できる年にしたい。

Falesco

Cotarella Montiano Merlot 2016

MICHAEL COOPER DipWSET
8.9

Clean medium ruby color. Medium + intensity aromas of ripe rhubarb and red fruit (plums, red apple, cherry jam) some anis and hints of licorice, subtle secondary aromas of oak (coffee and mocha) and tertiary aromas and flavors of dried red fruit (dried cranberries and prunes). On the palate it’s dry with medium acidity, medium+ tannin and high alcohol. Medium+ body and medium+ finish. It’s riper and has more ripe dried fruit skin quality tannins than say a St. Emilion, but it’s delicious and will evolve in a decanter or in the bottle for the next 7/8 years. #merlot #lazio #italy — a year ago

L'Alberello Bolgheri Superiore SuperTuscan Blend 2017

MICHAEL COOPER DipWSET
8.9

When I first tasted this with Coravin we were sure it had TCA, but it wasn’t excessively bitter or astringent and it had plenty of rich ripe black fruit...so I uncorked it today and the cork definitely smells of old winery, old church and almost pine trees but I wouldn’t call it corked cork. Even with the cork issue the wine has a smooth oily attack and firm fine-grained tannins. I am thoroughly enjoying it. #bolgheri #tuscany #italy #supertuscan The winery should definitely look into their cork provider. — a year ago

9.1

Really enjoyable and well made #pinotnoir #pinotnero #riserva from #altoadige #sudtirol #italy Perhaps the acidity is a little too high and there isn’t enough ripe fruit and body to balance it, but it has delicate and precise aromas and flavors. — a year ago

Tenuta dell'Ornellaia

Ornellaia Bolgheri Superiore Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 1994

1994 Ornellaia Bolgheri Superiore


Off vintage. A difficult year. Lighter in color than expected. The red fruits were very much alive but on a very delicate structure. Still enjoyable but wanted more from
Ornellaia. (Edited: On the second day, Ornellaia delivered! Wow. It is still delicate but in a perfect harmony.)


オフヴィンテージ1994年のワイン。思っていた以上に薄い色。フルーツ感は健在でしたが、非常にデリケートな構造の中に存在しているとでも申しますか、難しい年だったことがわかるワインでした。楽しめるワインでしたが、Ornellaiaからはもう少し厚み、芳醇さが欲しかった。(編集・追記: 2日目。Ornellaiaはやってくれました。とてもデリケートな構造の中に完璧なハーモニーが!)
