Winemaker's Notes:

The Antinori family has been making wine for over six hundred years, since Giovanni di Piero Antinori became part of the Arte Fiorentina dei Vinattieri in 1385. Throughout its long history, spanning 26 generations, the family has always personally managed the business making innovative, sometimes courageous choices, always with unwavering respect for tradition and the land. Today Marchese Piero Antinori is director of the company, assisted by his three daughters, Albiera, Allegra and Alessia, who are personally involved in the business. The qualities of tradition, passion and instinct have made Antinori one of the leading Italian producers of fine quality wines. Every vintage, every terroir, every idea is a new beginning, a new quest to raise our quality margins. As Marchese Piero loves to repeat: “ancient roots play an important role in our philosophy, but they have never held back our spirit of innovation”. As well as the family's traditional heritage of estates in Tuscany and Umbria, investments have been made over time in other areas highly suited to quality wine production, in Italy and abroad, in a quest to promote new terroirs, rich in winegrowing potential. Antinori continually experiment with their vineyards and cellars, with selections of native and international clones, growing methods, vineyard altitudes, fermentation methods and temperatures, traditional and modern vinification techniques, types of wood, size and age of barrels, and various bottle-ageing periods. Piero Antinori says: “We have shown over the years that it is possible to produce internationally-acclaimed fine stylish, elegant wines in Tuscany and Umbria while maintaining their original character”. Looking to the future, Antinori explains: “There are many books in our library but they are never enough for us. Our mission is not yet complete: we are driven to express the vast potential of our vineyards and reconcile all that is new and undiscovered with Tuscany's traditional, cultural, agricultural, artistic and literary heritage. These things represent the identity of Antinori, and one of our greatest strengths is that we are in Tuscany – our essential ‘Tuscan-ness', if you will”. Read less

Tasted at Prince Wine Store (South Melbourne (RP AUD$120). Clear, pale lemon colour. A clean nose, med+ intensity aromas of almond, white peach and nectarine. A dry, med+ bodied white wine with a smooth velvety texture, zesty and carrying more weight than a typical chardonnay. A well-balanced wine with appropriate amount of fruity acidity. Fleshy fruit flavours of peach and honeyed spices. Nice finish. Drink now – 2017. 92/100.

£14.22 2011 http://www.montalbera.it/eng/ruche.php Società Agricola Montalbera S.r.l. - via Montalbera, 1 - 14030 Castagnole Monferrato (At) ITALY - montalbera@montalbera.it £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.

Dornfelder Qualitätswein trocken 2009 - Markus Pfaffmann : Dornfelder Qualitätswein trocken 2009 - Rotwein von Markus Pfaffmann Die Farbe gibt die Richtung an. Dieser Rotwein zeigt eine sehr würzige Nase nach reifen dunklen Früchten und etwas Tabak. Der dichte und kompakte Saft, die würzige Frucht, Spuren Waldbeeren, dunklen Kirschen und reifen Pfaumen dominieren im Mund mit etwas Tabak. Der Dornfelder von Pfaffmann zeigt eine kaum spürbare Süße, aber eine reife Säure und eine tolle Balance. Die fruchtige Safigkeit bleibt auch im Abgang.Daten von Dornfelder Qualitätswein trocken 2009 - Markus Pfaffmann Weingut: Markus PfaffmannLand: DeutschlandRegion: PfalzRebsorte: DornfelderInhalt: 0,75 lAlkoholgehalt: 13,00 Vol.%Säuregehalt: 5,50 g/lRestsüße: 5,40 g/l Pfalz

Das Bukett enthält überwiegend rote Fruchtnoten, vermischt mit Anklängen nach Vanille und Röstaromen. Im Geschmack frisch, lieblich, gut strukturiert mit einem lang anhaltenden Abgang.

This is a blend of four estate grown grape varieties: Mourvèdre, Syrah, Grenache and a dash of Counoise. It's well-structured, has grippy tannins and a generous palate gushing softly ripened raspberries lightly spiced with mixed peppercorns.
