Medium garnet color. Medium+ intensity aromas of ripe red fruit (ripe strawberries, cherries and bramble) there are medicinal herbal aromas and flavors as well (anis, thyme and lemon balm) secondary aromas of after eight and cocoa powder. There are tertiary aromas and flavors of ripe dried fruit like prunes. Dry, medium- acidity, medium sweet luscious tannin and high alcohol medium body and medium+ finish. #puglia #negroamaro #italy — 4 months ago

And this...is a wine that MUST be decanted. #decantthis I finally opened it and 48 hours later it is twice as expressive and balanced and smooth. #chianti #chiantiriserva #italy — 5 months ago

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 — 4 months ago

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 — 4 months ago

If you put it in a blind tasting it falls face first, but if you crack it open and don’t compare it to anything it’s a rather enjoyable wine. #bolgheri #supertuscan #italy #tuscany — 7 months 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. — 4 months 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!)
