Had first in Italy -portofino Solid
The White vine Terras de Lantaño smells fresh and with a little taste of strawberries..... A really "superb· vine, but cheap.
£14.22 2011 http://www.montalbera.it/eng/ruche.php Società Agricola Montalbera S.r.l. - via Montalbera, 1 - 14030 Castagnole Monferrato (At) ITALY - email@example.com £14.22 2011 Quite light. Not very serious since it starts out being very fruity. But then it moves on to give that classic Piedmont depth; this is true especially after its left open for a while/day. Overall its too (in a strange way) fruity for me. Perhaps the 2 rating is a bit harsh but not by much; I think I can find much better.
nice tuscan blend. smooth, light wood. great with veal shank
External Reviews for Antinori Santa Cristina Casasole Orvieto Classico Amabile
Ruby red in colour; on the nose, intense bouquet of mature fruits; on the palate well structured, harmonious, soft and very pleasing.
Fresh showing a nice purity to the red and black cherry fruit fragrant spice notes and tangy minerality. Elegant and balanced with a moderate finish. Drink now through 2022. -BS Wine Spectator.
Lemon gold hue is as dazzling as the nose of Meyer lemon and pulverized sea shell. A generous entry of citrus fruit Crenswhaw melon hints of tarragon and honeycomb envelope the palate. The wine is angular with a dry gravel-like finish (indicative of the soil in which the semillon and sauvignon blanc are grown). Wonderfully balanced the powdery finish keeps you guessing long after your first sip. A grand effort for a selection that could easily go toe-to-toe with many top Pessac-Leognans at double and triple the price. No need to hold this wine in your cellar this Bordeaux Blanc is ready-to-please right now. Perfect with lightly breaded Dover sole or skate pan-fried with a lemon cream sauce. Neil Mechanic.
Deep opaque ruby. Big soft and plush with ripe berry aromas of red cherry blue flowers cassis liqueur and dark chocolate on the nose leads to a quintessential Graves palate of crushed rock and pencil lead minerality. With its rich soft mouthfeel and hints of charcoal and oak on the finish this is definitely approachable now but will get fleshier with a couple of years in the bottle. Drink 2013-2020. Cory Gowan.
The sensational 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Feminessance which is 75% Grenache and 25% Syrah aged in small oak has the densest opaque color of all three cuvees. This wine has fabulous fruit concentration and comes across as a wonderful segue way between the traditional and the modern styles of Chateauneuf du Pape. Full-bodied pure and certainly a star of the vintage this wine can be drunk now or cellared for up to 12-15+ years. It is a brilliant achievement in 2009 and I kept going back to the glass for another whiff of the kirsch and black raspberry notes. Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
The old stand-by of Michel Tardieu is the 2009 Cotes du Rhone Guy Louis. This wine is about 60% Grenache and 40% Syrah all coming from three sectors - Cairanne Rasteau and the vast ocean of mostly Grenache-based vineyards known as the Plan de Dieu. Impressively endowed medium to full-bodied with ripe red and black fruits camphor barbecue spices and underbrush the wine is textured rich and very impressive. It should also drink well for 4-5 years. Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
Campania, ItalyCantina del Taburno Fidelis Aglianico is a delightful red wine gem from the Campania region of southern Italy. It is 90% Aglianico blended with 10% Sangiovese. Robert Parker calls Cantina del Taburno "one of Campania's most promising estates." No ratings yet on this 2009 vintage, but Antonio Galloni for Wine Advocate rated both the 2006 and 2007 Fidelis 90 points! Campania's Aglianico del Taburno DOC is an excellent source of Aglianico. Located north of Naples at an elevation of 1,000 feet, the region has a long growing season, hot days and moderately cool nights. Volcanic soil supports the vines. The winemaker is Professor Luigi Moio of the University of Naples, formerly with Feudi San Gregorio. Cantina del Taburno Fidelis Aglianico is ruby red in color with full body and a sweet nose of berries, black cherries, leather, spice and licorice. Soft and pleasing on the palate, it offers abundant flavors of dark berries, black cherries, almonds and spice. Fermented in stainless steel and aged in a combination of large oak casks and used French-oak barrriques, it is well balanced to enjoy now and over the next 5-6 years. The finish is long and complex.Enjoy Cantina del Taburno Fidelis Aglianico with roast beef, BBQ ribs, steak, pasta with meat sauces and grilled vegetables.
Wine Tasting Notes The unique blends of grapes in this wine results in silkiness and fruit purity. A brilliant, yellow-green wine with a floral, apple complexity on the nose, intensely fruity and elegant, and a harmonious, soft mouthfeel.
