    The nose showed intense, dark red fruits, hints of spiced cookie and inner floral notes. On the palate, I found raspberry and spice that started tart but turned juicy as it flowed through to a beautiful fruity finish, laced with floral tones.

    The nose was dark and spicy with red fruits and crushed fall leaves. On the palate, it was dark and brooding with rich, structured cherry and herbs. The finish showed palate-coating tannin with red berries and herbs. It was a highly enjoyable Chianti that should spend another three to five years in the cellar before tasting again.

    The nose showed ripe cherry, floral and tobacco notes with hints of herbs and cedar. On the palate, it was youthful yet still enjoyable with red berry fruits, licorice, and dark savory tones on a medium body showing excellent balance. The finish lingered for over a minute as ripe berry fruit slowly melted away from the palate to reveal a layer of fine tannin. (93 points)

    The nose showed intense raspberry, red floral tones, tar, animal musk, undergrowth and dark chocolate. On the palate it was medium-bodied with concentrated, tart cherry fruit, tobacco and leather. The finish was long with dry, red berries and grainy tannin that coated the palate. This is a little painfully to drink now but should be marvelous in a few years time. (92 points)

    The nose was intense and sexy with black cherry, woodland notes, dark chocolate, floral tones and a hint of vanilla. On the palate, it was rich yet perfectly juicy, showing notes of blackberry jam, sweet spices, tart cherry juice and cola with hint of tannin clinging to senses. The finish was long with concentrate ripe berry fruit coating the palate, along with well polished tannin that seemed to linger for over thirty seconds. (93 points)

This may be a full-throtle, in your face Barbera but it stays juicy throughout with such beautiful fruit and structure that I just wanted to pour glass after glass. (93 points)

    The nose was earthy and floral with dark, mixed berry notes, hints of mountain herbs and chalky minerals. On the palate it was light to medium bodied with juicy acidity as notes of blackberry, with an herbal quality framed silky tannins that lasted through the long finish. (90 points)

On the palate it was light to medium bodied with juicy acidity as notes of blackberry, with an herbal quality framed silky tannins that lasted through the long finish. I really enjoyed this value oriented wine with tons of character. When it was first opened, at cellar temp, it was easy drinking and great with dinner. However, as it rose to room temperature, this easy drinking beauty gained weight and lots of dark Dolcetto character. Plus, with it's firm structure making an appearance on the palate, I have to wonder what this wine may become with another year in the cellar. (90 points)

    The nose was clean, coming more to life as the wine warmed in the glass, showing nectarine, spicy floral notes, minerals, and almond skins. On the palate, it was crisp with ripe, yet focused peach and inner floral tones. A note of grapefruit and green apple lingered through the finish. This being my first experience with a Riesling from Piedmont, I will say that I was very impressed. It may not be a blockbuster but it certainly showed a lot of potential. The style was more Alsace than Germany and great with a plate of mixed Wurst and Sauerkraut. (89 points)

    The 2010 Le Vieux Donjon showed a beautiful and highly expressive nose with aromas of black raspberry jam, charred meat, chalky minerals, dried floral notes, and wild herbs. On the palate it had velvety textures with a dark brooding feel yet somehow juicy and fresh with ripe black fruits, exotic spice, Espagnole and black pepper in the background. The finish was long with dark palate staining fruits and a flex of imposing structure. (94 points)

    The nose showed spicy florals, lychee and tropical fruits. On the palate, it entered with a rush of juicy, ripe peach and citrus but quickly fell short, lacking presence at it's center. The finish was medium in length, pleasant and mouth-watering. (86 points)

    The nose opened over time to show blackberry, dark currant, crisp bacon, ginger spice, herbes de Provence and a hint of citrus. On the palate it was full bodied with dark fruit tones hinting at blueberry and plum, along with dark earth, minerals and fig, which last through the finish, coating the palate with intense fruit extract and a hint of tannin. This wine continued to open up over the three hours it was in decanter. It's was still showing youthful tannin but there's so much intense fruit that I can imagine it will only get better. At this time, it's highly enjoyable but would benefit from a few more years in the cellar. (93 points)
