- Ruby color. It's balanced and has flavours of strawberry, black pepper, smokey, dusty and horsey with a medium/full body. Narrow texture with a long finish.

Grootse wijn, uur te voren gedecanteerd (is nodig)

boerse neus, provenciaalse kruiden
In smaak komt dit terug, voor decanteren was het hout dominant, daarna mooi verweven,typische geur van rook, iets leer en moooi fruit. mooie hoge zuren, lange afdronk, mooie Côte-Rôtie en een erg goed prijs kwaliteits verhouding.

Intense with ripe fruit flavours that recalls plums.
The full taste given by the roundness of Canaiolo along with the dry and persistent taste of Sangiovese make this wine harmonic and one of the most pleasant of the wine-making panorama.

Blend Percentage: Sangiovese 85%; Canaiolo 15%

Straw yellow in aspect, with characteristic oak aromas of cream, butter and fresh bread supporting elegant minerality. Full bodied on the palate, with green fruit, brioche and vanilla notes

Caractère : Véritable vin de plaisir pour les gourmets. Le nez évoque des arômes de poire et de prune en passant par les fleurs blanches avec des notes de brioche et de fenouil. Moelleux fondu, puissant, harmonieux et généreux.

This Amarone-style wine from Argentina (partially dried grapes) shows unmistakable raisined fruit character in a clean, floral and almost elegant expression; really fine concentration and complexity. The palate is full, firm, with structure-giving tannins, juicy acid, terrific fruit extract, and added complexity from cedary-tarry wood spice. Alcohol is high, but balanced by flavour intensity. This would be a fun one to throw in blind for the Amarone tasting and watch it beat up on wines twice the price.

My first though was a barnyard smell, and afther a sip: green olives and some pepper. It has acidity and the tannins were well balanced.
my first guess was Bourgogne.

Dense syrupy black red colour. Sweet curranty fruit nose, cough syrup and dark chocolate. Complex flavours in the mouth, thick luscious fruit, spicy oak coming through. Very good length and a firm decisive finish.

Powerful minerality on the nose; notes of cordite and crushed rocks. Beautiful palate; balanced yet rich, honeyed, but showing that super stony, rocky minerality found on the nose. Apricots, cream, notes of pineapple and citrus. Shows grip and structure too. Pretty impressive length. Wonderful. Drinking now, but should be fine for a decade in the cellar at least. 18/20

Simply stunning; a breathtaking nose, exhibiting a rarely encountered finesse, an elegant intertwining of mineral character and exotic aroma. Such balance on the palate. There is great structure, a wonderful depth of fruit and fine botrytis. Despite such opulent richness this wine still possesses great verve and elegance. Finishes with a delightful, honeycomb finish. This is exceptional. 19.5+/20

Typical Bordeaux like blend. Give it air, plenty air. Then it will tast like a great Bordeaux for al lott less money.
Earth, tar, and tobacco and some black pepper on both the nose and palate, afther some time the fruit will show. In the nose its still hot from the alcohol. will be better in a couple of years

A pretty pale gold hue with a very plentiful bead. Fresh, green, leafy and steely on the nose, crisp in style. A lovely, vivacious quality on the palate, a crisp mousse, lots of stony, leafy, acidic fruit character. Finishes rather short.

A deep yet vibrant scarlet-pink. Strawberries and vanilla pod on the nose, with a leafy edge. A firm mousse, with redcurrants and nettles, presented in a deliciously dry style. There is a slightly bitter streak to it which I like, and fine acidity. It even lingers a little on the finish.
