Villa Antinori is a prominent wine estate in Tuscany, Italy. Wine has been produced by the Antinori family since they came to Florence in the 14th century. The family estate, Palazzo Antinori, was purchased in Tuscany in 1506, and later that century, banker and merchant Alessandro Antinori began to produce the wines made there commercially. Generations later, in 1928, Marquis Niccolò Antinori officially created the Villa Antinori brand, with the intention of producing an elegant Chianti fit for longevity. The wine was soon found in the cellars and on the tables of of some of the most prestigious houses, restaurants and hotels. In 1931, Villa Antinori began producing a white wine from Trebbiano, and in the 1980s, Chardonnay was added to the blend for elegance. In 2001, the estate added the production of Super Tuscans to their growing portfolio. In addition to table wines, Villa Antinori also produces sparkling wines, grappa and olive oil.  Read less

Mourvedre, Grenache. Mineral and raspberry aromas to this dark wine. Frais de bois and raspberry flavors. Very nice, rich mouthfeel and a concentration of flavors in the midpalate. Chalky, stony finish.

Very attractive dark crimson color. Aromas of dark red fruit, coffee, spice, and earth. Coffee and tobacco were present on the palate, but there was also the taste of red cherry, blackberry, red pepper, and vanilla. The wine is full and smooth in the mouth. The finish is long and satisfying.

For the price I paid (5Euro) this was a decent purchase. Obviously not as complex as other Priorats, but with nine months in barrel this wine has some quality. Decent structure, nice earthiness and some dried fruit components.

Amazing nose on this wine. Big and floral with hints of ripe tropical fruit. Fairly round and rich on the palate. Very interesting wine.

Rating: 89/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the September 2010 issue. Mixing blackberry fruit tones with light sniffs of old leather and the tightness of youth, this wine still gets it spot on in its aromas and delivers well in the mouth. It is supple to start in palatefeel, then progress to a firm, tannin-supported spine that demands a fair bit of patience in order for the wine to come out of its rough stance. With depth to spare and focus that is true-to-type, this Zin can be put away with confidence.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Cellar for future drinking. Wine will improve with bottle aging.

A 100% Grenache cuvee from the sandy soils of a 106-year-old biodynamically farmed La Crau vineyard and aged in both foudre and tank the 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Speciale is amazing. Abundant notes of melted licorice kirsch liqueur and flowers is followed by a full-bodied seamlessly constructed wine with sensational purity texture depth and length. The bad news is there are only 2 000 bottles. This 2007 should drink well for two decades or more. Michel Tardieu assisted by the brilliant oenologist Philippe Cambie has fashioned gorgeous low-end Cotes du Rhones that merit serious attention. Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

Intensives Rubin-Purpur. Amarenakirschen und Schokopflaumen in der dessertartigen Nase, auch Weinbeeren und dezente Kokosnote dahinter. Cremig-weicher Gaumenfluss im verführerischen Auftakt, feine Cacaonote in der beerigen Mitte, typische Ribera-Wärme und kontinuierlicher Fruchtdruck, saftig-elegant und charaktervoll zugleich, nun auch Walderdbeeren und Rotweinfeigen, zarte Pralinensüsse bis ins lange anhaltende Finale.

This brilliant Torrontés is crafted in northern Argentina's La Rioja region. The Torrontés grape, a distant cousin of Muscat, produces distinctively aromatic white wines, and we think they are some of the best bottles to come out of Argentina lately. The "Plata" is dry on the palate, with notes of mixed white flowers, yellow plums, and even some white peppercorn on the finish. Overall, it has a remarkably fresh character, enabling it to complement lighter dishes without overwhelming them. It's fresh and surprising each and every time you open a bottle.

Knebel Winninger Uhlen Riesling Spätlese trocken 2007: Dieser junge Uhlenwein zeigt eine pikante, oftmals fast salzige Mineralität, die durch einen reifen, kraftvollen Körper gemildert wird. Uhlen-Rieslinge brauchen Zeit und sind hochindividuelle, meistens trockene Weine für Kenner, Weine, die eine Auseinandersetzung einfordern. Dieser anspruchsvolle Stil des Uhlen geht aus der Heterogenität der Gesteinsformationen hervor. Diese bestehen aus grauem bis blauen Schiefer, Rotschiefer, verschiedenen Sandsteine mit in der Regel hohen Eisenoxidanteilen, Kalkbändern und Quarziten.    Weingut: KnebelRegion:    MoselRebsorte: RieslingAlkoholgehalt: 13 %Inhalt: 0.75 lAuszeichnungen:4 Trauben - Exzellenter Betrieb - Spitze Deutschlands, Gault Millau 2009 Weißwein > Deutschland > Mosel
