  • Ornellaia 2016 Bolgheri DOC Superiore
    Tuscany, Italy
    51% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Merlot, 18% Cabernet Franc, 4% Petit Verdot
    In 2016 Bolgheri was blessed by the second exceptional vintage on the trot, after the superb 2015. People are struggling to remember two such excellent consecutive vintages and it is fair to say that the release of the wines has been much anticipated. The critics have been lavish with their praise. This fantastic wine has monumental depth with profound layers of black fruit, coffee, liquorice and baking chocolate. Glossy shine and a polished texture that segues to important richness, concentration and textural fibre. Wraps thickly over the palate, imparting waves of sweet dark fruit and dark spice that lingers for many long minutes. The Ornellaia vineyard totals 280 acres that are divided into more than 70 vineyard plots according to soil type, exposition and varietal. All the vineyards are about three miles from the Mediterranean shore. The mild maritime climate features sea breezes that keep the sky clear with low rainfall and long summers that favour the development of aromatic compounds. The clusters were hand-picked into 15 kg boxes and then selected by hand on a double sorting table, before and after destemming, and finally softly crushed. In 2016, optical sorting has been introduced in addition to manual selection, in order to further increase the quality of selection. Each grape variety and single vineyard block was vinified separately. Fermentation took place in stainless steel and concrete tanks at temperatures between 26-30°C for two weeks, followed by 10-15 days of maceration on the skins. The malolacticfermentation took place mainly in oak barrels, 70% new and 30% once-used. The wine then remained in barriques, in Ornellaia’s temperature- controlled cellars for about 20 months. After the first 12 months of maturation, the wine was assembled and then returned to the barriques for an additional 8 months. After bottling, the wine aged a further 12 months prior to release. Cellar Potential 2020-2040 “2016 represents another immensely successful vintage highlighting all the virtues of Bolgheri’s climate: abundant sunshine, without excessive heat, a dry summer to allow the grapes to achieve perfect ripeness and concentration, and just about enough rain to avoid stress. All these elements combine to yield a wine that shows lush ripeness and crisp firmness, opposing forces creating a sense of dense raciness we like to describe as “tension”.” Axel Heinz – Estate Director “A particularly dark and young colour is the prelude to a complex nose of black berries, spices and cedar. The palate is rich and dense, balanced by a refined and firm tannic structure, lifted by a juicy and bright acidity.” Olga Fusari – Winemaker – July 2018 Monica Larner scored the wine at 98 points and gave it this glowing review. “The 2016 Bolgheri Superiore Ornellaia is a wine of extreme complexity and precision. It offers monumental depth with profound layers of black fruit, coffee, licorice and baking chocolate. I tasted this 2016 vintage beside the less-impactful 2015 vintage (which was reviewed last year). These two editions are very different when compared side to side, and this 2016 release is clearly superior in terms of the quality, clarity and intensity of its offerings. This Ornellaia delivers glossy shine and a polished texture that segues to important richness, concentration and textural fiber. It wraps thickly over the palate, imparting waves of sweet dark fruit and dark spice that linger for many long minutes. This beautiful wine is hitting the market now, but collectors will want to put it straight into their cellars for safekeeping.” Bruce Sanderson scored it at 96 points and Mick O’Connell MW scored it at 97 points, writing this note. “Plush nose, cedar and cigar box spice. Merlot showing with plum and currants. Super finesse here, long and fine but very dense and compact - opulence and vibrancy simultaneously - gives nice tension and contrast. Excellent stuff.”

  • Tenuta San Guido Sassicaia 2016
    Tuscany, Italy
    85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Cabernet Franc
    In 2016 Bolgheri was blessed by the second exceptional vintage on the trot, after the superb 2015. People are struggling to remember two such excellent consecutive vintages and it is fair to say that the release of the wines has been much anticipated. The critics have been lavish with their praise. 100/100 Wine Advocate, 98/100 Wine Enthusiast, 18.5/20 Jancis Robinson Monica Larner of the Wine Advocate scored the wine a perfect 100 points, and gave it this review, full of superlatives. “The 2016 Sassicaia is a wine of soaring achievement. I tasted this wine several times during the course of its creation in both barrel and bottle, and the highly deserved 100-point score you see here was enthusiastically assigned at the conclusion of a mini vertical in which I tasted and compared the 2016 vintage against 2015 (which I scored 97 points). It makes perfect sense to present these two excellent vintages in back-to-back comparison fashion because they are two of the best to emerge from Bolgheri, and indeed Tenuta San Guido, in recent memory. These are very similar vintages with long, hot summer months that fuelled a long growing season. There was a bit more rain in 2016, and in analytical terms this vintage has a tad more acidity. However, the results in the glass are extraordinarily different. The 2015 vintage is exuberant, round, succulent and immediate, whereas the 2016 vintage shows pinpoint sharpness and precision (with similar grit and texture at the back). That acidity will carry it long into the future as the wine completes its slow evolutionary course. This wine is chiselled and sharp with blackberry, ripe cherry, grilled herb and barbecue spice. The aromas flow from the glass in a continuous stream and are all marked by radiant intensity. The mouthfeel is long and powerful. The crisp linearity of the wine's tannic backbone is perfectly measured to the volume and depth of the fruit flavors. To my mind, the 2016 Sassicaia stands tall next to the epic 1985 vintage that set the ultimate benchmark for vino italiano.“ Bruce Sanderson of the Wine Spectator scored Sassicaia at 97 points, while Mick O’Connell MW scored it at 98 points and wrote this note. “Super-dense core of black fruit and cassis - wood spice still integrating. Dense and concentrated with fine grain tannin and superb length. Pure and very fine. A lot of complexity - spice and cedar with touch of cigar box. Really juicy acid too - almost mouth-watering which gives a fabulous freshness and purity alongside the intense fruit core. Fabulous. One of the best I have tasted from Sassicaia”. Sassicaia is today one of the most sought after fine wines in the world. This is larely because of the vision, enerf=gy and drive o proprietor Mario Incisa della Rocchetta. The name Sassicaia means place of many stones and the gravelly soil has been compared to those found in the Medoc. "Mid-deep ruby-garnet. A notable nose ragrance with tobacco scent lifts out of the glass. Acore or ripe, sweet cassis fruit is wrapped in subtle clove oak spice, some earthy tones and cigar box. Needs only a little coaxing from the glass, whish is surprising, given its youth. Focussed, precise and elegant cassis on the palate with crushed rock and tobacco. Very fine, fairly firm tannins, with a line of acidity helping to give structure. Very long, delicate, scented finish." Tim Jackson, MW, jancisrobinson.com

  • Trebbiolo La Stoppa 2017
    Emilia-Romagna, Italy
    60% Barbera, 40% Bonarda
    60% Barbera, 40% Bonarda grapes from organic vineyards. The younger version of the traditional blend of Colli Piacentini, obtained from the local varieties Barbera and Bonarda, born from the selection of the bigger berries, as well as from the younger as well as the lower parts of the vineyards. Spontaneous fermentation with indigenous yeasts, in stainless steel and cement tanks. "Wild, earthy, yeastiness on the nose, incongruously like fresh vanilla pod with its earthy sweet-leathery notes. Aromas of small berries, blackberries, myrtille. Dryish on palate, which is meaty, earthy, spicy, sweet earth, lardo, reminds me of Bellota ham and refreshing acidity. Youthful and purple and vibrant. Cries out for a big plate of charcuterie and cheese and some top class air-dried hams." Le Caveau.
