      “Core” Aglianico Campania IGT 2016 · Special Edition “Core Mio” in Gift Box

      1 bottle of Core 2016 in a beautiful, high-quality gift box in a small edition. Careful when opening, many silky hearts could fall out ...

      "Today we need lighter wines, they fit better to our hectic life", says the wise Silvia Imparato. And so we celebrate her second wine - an Aglianico with a fresh fruit scent and lively taste, elegant and complex without any trace of opulence. As we like it! SUPERIORE.DE

      "Extremely well crafted with ultra-fine tannins and beautiful and subtle aromas and flavors of black fruit, black pepper and white pepper. Medium to full body. Polished and so enjoyable to taste. Can age beautifully." James Suckling

      "Very deep purple-ruby; this is very dark for an Aglianico wine. Delicate on the nose and remarkably light on its feet, offering sweet blueberry, red cherry, sweet spice and floral flavors, similar to the aromas, that linger impressively on the juicy, long, clean finish. A knockout wine, and the best Aglianico ever from Montevetrano." Vinous

    • "La Grola" Rosso Veronese IGT 2016<br>Artist Label "Hiroyuki Masuyama"

      “La Grola” Rosso Veronese IGT 2016 · Artist Label “Hiroyuki Masuyama“

      La Grola is the historic vineyard that gave its name to Corvina, the autochthonous grape of Valpolicella, which is probably its origin. The replanting of the vineyard by Giovanni Allegrini sparked an agronomic revolution and laid the foundations for the success of this wine-growing area, which today is home to great red wines from north-eastern Italy.

      So it is not surprising that La Grola receives a special honour from its magnificent location. Since 2010, Allegrini has been collaborating with internationally renowned artists, publishing year after year a unique, limited artist edition. The edition opened with a work by Milo Manara, continued in 2011 with a label designed by Arthur Duff and continued in 2012 with a painting by Athos Faccincani. The composition VI by Wassily Kandinsky was selected for La Grola in 2013, and in 2014 the artistic journey went to Brazil and to Nazareno Rodrigues Alves, before returning to Italy with the 2015 edition to Leonardo Ulian.

      The 2016 vintage was interpreted by a great Japanese artist: Hiroyuki Masuyama. In a highly innovative process, La Grola's Limited Edition ennobles the fascinating synthesis of overlapping shots. A total of 288 photographs are incorporated into this work, showing one of the legendary vineyards of Valpolicella from an exciting and completely new perspective. Time and space are the fundamental elements of Hiroyuki Masuyama's overall creativity: everything revolves around these two concepts, which have been formalised differently over the years and have become the hallmark of his work. Masuyama combines and overlaps the result of hundreds of photographs taken of his subject from a fixed angle. The result of this superimposition is another image of the same place.

      We are pleased to be able to offer you some copies of the special edition, which is strictly limited every year!

      Dense, dark ruby red, in the nose very full-bodied and strong with tones of forest and overripe berries. The rich fullness from coffee to black cherries is accompanied by present, pleasant tannins. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Lovely balance, as always, to this super Veronese red with juicy dark fruit and hints of black chocolate. Medium to full body, succulent tannins and a fresh finish." James Suckling

      "Very inky and toasty nose. On the palate the wine is elegant, fresh and poised with classy, well-integrated oak, flavours of plums and cherries and tight tannins, which will soften in time." Decanter

      “Castel Chiuro” Valtellina Superiore Riserva DOCG 2009 · in Gift Box

      120 years after the foundation of the winery, the re-release of a classic with special equipment (incl. bound booklet on the history) comes on the market. This high-quality Nebbiolo comes from approx. 50-year-old vines in the Sassorosso and Sassina sites, where the soils are very poor and stony. Clear ruby red, rich, powerful and complex on the palate with a wonderful elegance. The finesse and precision of the Nebbiolo grape captivates from the first sip, and with increasing aeration this rare drop reveals its complexity and structure. A jubilee wine as it is written in the book! SUPERIORE.DE

      "This is a gorgeous and beautifully aged expression of Nebbiolo from the high mountains in the far north of Italy. The 2009 Valtellina Superiore Riserva Castel Chiuro absolutely blossoms in the glass with rose petal, violets, wild blueberry and more tangy forest fruit. The wine shows a long and pleasurable succession of small red berry aromas such as cassis and raspberry. Those polished and elegant primary tones are followed by light brushstrokes of smoke, licorice and tar. This wine is an absolute beauty." Robert Parker

    • "Zero140" Metodo Classico Alta Langa Riserva DOCG 2008 pas dosé

      “Zero140” Metodo Classico Alta Langa Riserva DOCG 2008 pas dosé

      Zero140 is Enrico Serafino's most extreme Alta Langa and at the same time the most impressive Italian Metodo Classico we have ever had in the glass. It represents the pinnacle of Enrico Serafino's Alta Langa project and sets an undisputed benchmark in Italy's world of méthode champenoise sparkling wines in terms of finesse and emotionality (and length of bottle ageing).

      "Refining a bottle for 12 years means having 12 vintages in your own underground cellars at the same time. How can you recognise them? How do you make the complexity of such a special wine clear? We have chosen to paint the lower part of the bottles with a different colour for each vintage produced, marking the beginning of the remuage rotation on the glass. Moreover, the decision not to use the label underlines the complexity of the wine. This is why, in addition to the capsule required by law, on each bottle you will find only the jewel that represents our logo or the detail of a fossil from the Piedmont Tertiary, an unmistakable sign of the footprint that nature has left in nature over the centuries.

      And finally, the choice of colours. The quality of our wines comes from nature. That's why we chose to be inspired by the theory of planets and colours. This links the sun, the nine planets, the moon and Ceres (dwarf planet) with the different colours that exist: 12 colours that identify and distinguish the 12 vintages of ZERO 140, which are refined in our cellars at the same time. Starting with the yellow of the sun, we continued with the green of Venus, trying to represent life in colours. The current vintage is 2008, it received the red dedicated to the planet Mars." Paolo Giacosa, Kellermeister

      Pale gold in the glass. On the inviting, deliberately delicately reductive bouquet, poached pear, peach with toasted almonds and baked bread. On the palate of warm, rich texture and a never-ending soft and perfectly integrated perlage, which only exists when the wine is given time to mature. A lot of time. On the palate, then, an unrivalled complex, balanced, buttery and creamy texture, elegant and intense, with an invigorating fresh acidity to boot, followed by a deeply emotional mineral finish. This absolutely exceptional sparkling wine opens the doors of Fort Knox (and others) in the blink of an eye. Happy the one who can call a bottle of it his own. SUPERIORE.DE

      “Vigna Pirchschrait” Konrad Oberhofer Gewürztraminer Rarità Alto Adige DOC 2006 · 0,75l in OWC

      This dry Gewürztraminer from the Pirchschrait vineyard near Kolbenhof is intended as a homage to Konrad Oberhofer, who was the first to vinify the grapes of individual vineyards separately in the 1930s. The grandfather of Martin Foradori Hofstätter was a pioneer of thinking in plots. His aim was to make it possible to experience the special character of each location in the wine.

      After ten years of maturation on the fine yeast in 500 litre barrels, the Gewürztraminer develops a dense texture without losing freshness. The fine yeast also gives it a charming aroma of toasted bread, medlars, blossom honey and dried fruits. On the other hand, the fruit sweetness, which is already low, declines discreetly in the years of ripening, while the minerality gains expression. In the glass, the top-growing Pirchschrait captivates with a subtle play of flavours. SUPERIORE.DE

      For some years now, Luciano has been holding back a small quantity of his Nebbiolo Valmaggiore and letting it mature further in the bottle in his cellar. The result is called "Sibi et Paucis", which impressively underpins the cult status of his "little Barolo".

      Ruby red and with a phenomenal aroma - balsamic and earthy, alongside fine fruity. The disciplined taste with the wonderfully balanced, velvety tannins goes into a long finish and is accompanied by fine fruit and mint aromas. Wonderful elegance with even further ageing potential. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Lustrous mid ruby. Red fruit with a touch of hot iron and not without concentration. Succulent and refreshing with gripping tannins. Plain delicious and a real feat considering the very cold and rainy vintage." Jancis Robinson

      “Riserva del Fondatore Giulio Ferrari” Metodo Classico Trento DOC 2008 Extra Brut

      Cult Spumante named after the founder of the winery: bright shining yellow, lively, fine mousseux. The bouquet is inviting, with fine yeasty nuances and discreet grapefruit and citrus tones. Lots of substance on the palate, nice creamy texture, very elegant and with a fine nutty note underneath. The fresh structure and the harmonious, long finish have a wonderfully stimulating effect. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Strong straw yellow, persistent perlage with fine grain. Opens with intense notes of baked apple, candied pineapple, some coffee and roasted hazelnuts, delicate nougat. Salty and full-bodied on the palate, complex in time with fine mineral notes, very long finish." Falstaff

      "Rich and evolved nose with mature yellow fruit, honey and nuts leading to a complex citrus-infused palate of crème pâtissière and melon." Decanter

      "Bread-crust, honey and hazelnut aromas give way to ripe stone fruit and dried herb. The aromas carry over to the rich complex palate along with orange rind and dried pineapple. Fresh acidity keeps it youthful." Wine Enthusiast

      "So much power and so much freshness for 13 years of age, making this a very serious spumante that proves Italy can play in the first league of sparkling wines. A whole fjord of candied citrus, underlined by delicate, toasty lees character and very fine mousse on the full-bodied but very crisp palate. Huge finish!" James Suckling

      "This is a special wine that raises the bar very high for all Italian sparkling wines. The 2008 Trento Metodo Classico Extra Brut Giulio Ferrari Riserva del Fondatore (disgorged in 2020) walks a careful line between elegance and power. The wine ages on the lees for an outstanding 10 years and emerges with a silky texture and finely tuned aromas of apricot, Golden Delicious apple, honey, pie crust and crushed dolomitic quartz. This fine and elegant sparkler spreads evenly over the palate with fine beading and a creamy texture. The cool 2008 vintage is poised to take on more weight and intensity with time." Robert Parker

    • "Nama" Cuvée Bianco Alto Adige DOC 2016 <br>in Gift Box

      “Nama” Cuvée Bianco Alto Adige DOC 2016 · in Gift Box

      NA as in Nals, MA as in Margreid. A tribute to two outstanding sites where something special can be felt, seen and felt, and which have inspired cellarmaster Harald Schraffl to create something equally special from their grapes. A wine and essence that expresses the essence of the small plots in its purest form, whose typicity tells the South Tyrol of tomorrow, a timeless wine with recognition value in an international context. In 2016, this special marriage of Chardonnay and Sauvignon grapes finds its way into the bottle for the first time. NAMA is born - a cuvée of 85% Chardonnay, married with Pinot Bianco and Sauvignon.

      Harald Schraffl describes the wine as follows: "The Chardonnay brings the power, the timelessness and the international length to the wine, the Pinot Blanc the regionality, the rootedness with our soil and our homeland, the Sauvignon the spice."

      The vines for the Cuvée NAMA are between 30 and 40 years old. The grapes are harvested and selected by hand. After the gentle whole bunch pressing, the must is pre-clarified by natural, static sedimentation, fermentation and ageing in small oak barrels for 18 months on the lees. The grapes are then assembled and matured together on the lees for a further year in stainless steel tanks. The Cuvée NAMA is then bottled, where it matures for another year. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Bright elegant straw yellow with a tendency towards light gold. Great, inviting nose, multi-layered and compact, comes exotic out of the glass, after candied lemon zest, plus a hint of ripe pear, dried pineapple, a touch of fumé in the finish. Opens salty in the mouth, brisk without lacking complexity, rich pressure with a golden core, great, precise tension, very long final." Falstaff

      "This is a dense and layered blend of 85% chardonnay with pinot bianco and sauvignon blanc. Yet, it remains agile and vivid with lots of brightness and energy. The acidity and finely textured phenolics frame the wine nicely. Hints of nuts and stones to the apple, pineapple, peach and mango character. Extremely long and vibrant. Some mineral and licorice at the end. This is aged in 320-liter new barrels for 18 months, one year in stainless and then another two years in bottle. 1,800 bottles and 50 magnums made. Sustainable agriculture. From three growers of the cooperative." James Suckling

      "This is a new wine, and it's a big deal too. It arrives in special packaging, with a pretty wax capsule and numbered bottles (I tasted bottle number 0542). A blend of 85% Chardonnay, 9% Pinot Bianco and 6% Sauvignon, the Nals Margreid 2016 Alto Adige Bianco Nama is all about textural richness and creamy concentration. A heavy, environmentally unfriendly glass bottle underlines this theme, unfortunately; but this is no ordinary blend. The wine moves steadily and lazily over the palate, imparting ripe and solid aromas of honey, tropical fruit, vanilla spice and creamy custard. Its appearance is luminous and bright, and the aromatic layering is intricate and multilayered. This is a generous, full-bodied white with a lively and creamy finish that can be counted in long minutes. Here's a new discovery from Alto Adige to add to your cellar." Robert Parker

      "Pink with golden amber hues, the 2010 Franciacorta Annamaria Clementi Rosé captivates the senses with a display of dusty dried strawberries and zesty citrus contrasted by raw almond richness and sweet white smoke. It’s a silky and pliant effort with a slow-mounting structure; yet it manages to dazzle with notes of apple and savory spice, all enlivened by juicy acidity. There’s a lingering inner sweetness that mixes with a staining of concentrated red wild berries which stays with you for over a minute. Wow, just wow." Vinous

    • "Selezione 3 Cru" Chianti Classico Gran Selezione DOCG 2018 <br>3 Bottles in Gift Box

      “Selezione 3 Cru” Chianti Classico Gran Selezione DOCG 2018 · 3 Bottles in Gift Box

      Historically, the vineyards of Castello di Fonterutoli are located in the areas of three neighbouring municipalities of Chianti Classico: Castellina in Chianti, Castelnuovo Berardenga and Radda in Chianti. With the 2017 vintage, the Mazzei family has for the first time vinified all three large vineyards separately as Chianti Classico Gran Selezione to reflect the diversity of the terroir: Castello di Fonterutoli, Vicoregio 36 and Badiola.

      We are pleased to offer you all three crus from three terroirs from three communes in a beautiful decorative box!

      1 bottle à 0,75l | "Castello Fonterutoli" Chianti Classico Gran Selezione DOCG 2018

      Castello di Fonterutoli comes from 11 different plots at an altitude of 420-510 m around the hamlet of Fonterutoli in Castellina in Chianti. It is quasi the "château" and at the same time the oldest cru of the winery and was first produced in 1995 as the predecessor of today's Gran Selezione. Rich colour and a clear scent of blackberries, cherries, violets and flowers, plus a little nougat. This full-bodied Castello Fonterutoli impresses with its beguiling extract sweetness and polished tannin. The intense and concentrated taste enchants the senses. The long final is full of elegance. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Spring flowers and crushed forest fruit over tangerine and sweet tobacco nuances. Spicy palate with lots of black fruits." DECANTER

      "Cherries and strawberries on the nose with sandalwood and dried flowers. Medium-to full-bodied with fine tannins and a beautiful, long finish. This is a very fine-textured Chianti Classico with such complexity and finesse. Drinkable now, but better in 2022." JAMES SUCKLING

      1 bottle à 0,75l | "Badiòla" Chianti Classico Gran Selezione DOCG 2018

      Badiòla is the historic name of a vineyard in the municipality of Radda, whose grapes are vinified separately for the first time by the Mazzei family as Gran Selezione with the 2017 vintage. Bright ruby, a restrained but clear nose of wild berries, blue flowers, undergrowth, and hints of dark pepper. On the palate, Badiòla is masterfully balanced, almost weightless. The very well integrated tannin makes it seem supple from the first to the last glass and impresses with its long finish - its elegance is magnificent! SUPERIORE.DE

      "Super elegant nose with red fruits, rose petals, violets, toasted almonds, blood oranges and fresh herbs. Bold palate with full body." DECANTER

      "Sweet berries on the nose with citrus and cedar undertones. Hints of dried flowers, too. Full-bodied with a tight palate and polished tannins. The wine shows plenty of fruit, cream and cedar undertones. Chewy yet friendly finish." JAMES SUCKLING

      1 bottle à 0,75l | "Vicoregio 36" Chianti Classico Gran Selezione DOCG 2018

      Vicoregio 36 is the successor to the ambitious Mix 36 and, as of 2017, a true Chianti Classico Gran Selezione. As a result of 50 years of research, 36 biotypes of the Sangiovese grape were planted on a sunny plateau near Castelnuova Berardenga, from which this extremely interesting and distinctive wine was created a few years ago. The overall impression is very balanced and straightforward with hints of red cherries, spices, dried blueberries and tobacco. It is the warmest and most balanced of the three Gran Selezione wines. Its intensity, richness of colour and precise fruit instantly captivate the Sangiovese lover. SUPERIORE.DE

      "There's sweetness of fruit and finesse to this, giving a creamy texture and plenty of cherry, berry, and rose-water character. It's medium-to full-bodied with integrated tannins that are soft and creamy. Succulent finish. A little tight at the end, but will open nicely in a year or two. Best from 2023." JAMES SUCKLING

      "Delicate and youthful nose of pure crunchy red cherry, vanilla framed by herbal and leathery notes. Lovely brambly palate with a vibrant acidity and blood oranges character. Long, mineral finish." DECANTER

      “Vecchie Viti del Salco” Vino Nobile di Montepulciano DOCG 2016 (BIO) · 3 Bottles in Gift Box

      Just 3,500 bottles from the yield of the oldest vines of the Salco vineyard are sold with beautiful labels in a fancy 3-bottle box. In the glass, we are delighted by an extremely elegant Sangiovese with a very harmonious texture and very classic, earthy-spicy notes. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Dark luminous, elegant and deep ruby red. Spicy-meaty nose at first, opens on classy rosemary notes, dried tomato, then lovely cherry. Punchy on the palate with tightly woven tannin, tense, salty mineral on the back end, great length." Falstaff

      "From Salcheto's 2-hectare Salco vineyard, the Vecchie Viti is a selection of the oldest vines, which are upwards of 30 years old. After ageing in a combination of large cask and small tonneaux, this spends an additional 2 years in bottle before release. Yet it is still very nascent in expression. Smoke and mint emerge slowly weaving through wild berries. There is an irony undertow on the palate which is dense, ripe, concentrated and securely fastened by firm tannins. This is sinewy in its muscle and above all sophisticated." Decanter

      "The Salcheto 2016 Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Vecchie Viti del Salco (made from organic fruit) occupies that special place between primary and tertiary intensity. The bouquet reveals plum and dried cherry aromas, but it also shows oxidative aromas of tar, spice and a touch of dried fruit or apple skin. This open-knit wine is drinking nicely right now. Made from old vines, this is an accessible wine of personality." Robert Parker

      "New leather, forest-berry and rose aromas shape the enticing nose on this radiant red along with a balsamic whiff of camphor. The firm, elegantly structured palate features ripe Marasca cherry, black raspberry, licorice and crushed mint framed in tightly wound, fine-grained tannins and bright acidity. It's linear and still youthfully austere, with great aging potential. Drink 2023–2036." Wine Enthusiast

      Here comes the consistent answer to the high-quality French rosé vintage champagnes, which, as Robert Parker commented on the 2006 debut vintage, signifies nothing less than the turning point of the Italian Metodo Classico. Dark pink with raspberry reflections and a delicate copper hue. Beguilingly supple fruit, fine mineral notes, some rock and granite, as is typical for the Dolomite region. Glides silkily over the palate, the aromas of freshly baked baguette and brioche linger endlessly. Exciting and unique! SUPERIORE.DE

      "This exquisite, structured sparkler opens with enticing scents of rose petal, citrus, baking spice and red berry. The gorgeous, radiant palate boasts vibrancy and depth, featuring juicy red cherry and pomegranate overlaying rhubarb and mineral notes that recall graphite and saline. A silky, persistent perlage provides loads of finesse while bright acidity lends intensity and precision. Extraordinary." Wine Enthusiast

    • "La Grola" Rosso Veronese IGT 2016<br>Artist Label "Hiroyuki Masuyama" <br>6 Bottles in OWC

      “La Grola” Rosso Veronese IGT 2016 · Artist Label “Hiroyuki Masuyama” · 6 Bottles in OWC

      La Grola is the historic vineyard that gave its name to Corvina, the autochthonous grape of Valpolicella, which is probably its origin. The replanting of the vineyard by Giovanni Allegrini sparked an agronomic revolution and laid the foundations for the success of this wine-growing area, which today is home to great red wines from north-eastern Italy.

      So it is not surprising that La Grola receives a special honour from its magnificent location. Since 2010, Allegrini has been collaborating with internationally renowned artists, publishing year after year a unique, limited artist edition. The edition opened with a work by Milo Manara, continued in 2011 with a label designed by Arthur Duff and continued in 2012 with a painting by Athos Faccincani. The composition VI by Wassily Kandinsky was selected for La Grola in 2013, and in 2014 the artistic journey went to Brazil and to Nazareno Rodrigues Alves, before returning to Italy with the 2015 edition to Leonardo Ulian.

      The 2016 vintage was interpreted by a great Japanese artist: Hiroyuki Masuyama. In a highly innovative process, La Grola's Limited Edition ennobles the fascinating synthesis of overlapping shots. A total of 288 photographs are incorporated into this work, showing one of the legendary vineyards of Valpolicella from an exciting and completely new perspective. Time and space are the fundamental elements of Hiroyuki Masuyama's overall creativity: everything revolves around these two concepts, which have been formalised differently over the years and have become the hallmark of his work. Masuyama combines and overlaps the result of hundreds of photographs taken of his subject from a fixed angle. The result of this superimposition is another image of the same place.

      In each wooden box of 6 there are 6 bottles with Masuyama's exclusive artist's label. We are pleased to be able to offer you some copies of the special edition, which is strictly limited every year!

      Dense, dark ruby red, in the nose very full-bodied and strong with tones of forest and overripe berries. The rich fullness from coffee to black cherries is accompanied by present, pleasant tannins. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Lovely balance, as always, to this super Veronese red with juicy dark fruit and hints of black chocolate. Medium to full body, succulent tannins and a fresh finish." James Suckling

      "Very inky and toasty nose. On the palate the wine is elegant, fresh and poised with classy, well-integrated oak, flavours of plums and cherries and tight tannins, which will soften in time." Decanter

      The Nonino family presents the bonded Grappa Nonino Riserva Aged 24 Years in 2018. These are 1,135 numbered bottles.

      A rare and precious grappa made from selected pomace of Friuli's white and red grape varieties with a natural smoky note, distilled by Benito in a discontinuous copper steam flask in the nonino distilleries of Ronchi di Percoto.

    • "I Climat" Selezione Chardonnay Friuli Isonzo DOC 2015 <br>6 Bottles in OWC

      “I Climat” Selezione Chardonnay Friuli Isonzo DOC 2015 · 6 Bottles in OWC

      For more than thirty years, Vie di Romans has been vinifying only its own grapes in order to respect and express the respective vineyards of origin. The crus "Piere", "Vieris", "Vie di Romans", "Ciampagnis", "Dessimis" and others embody the sensory quintessence of their grapes of origin, each with its own recognisable and enduring historical character.

      With the ambitious project "I Climat" (traditional Burgundian term), Gianfranco Gallo wants to present the terroir expression of his wines in the truest and most authentic way. Each individual terroir offers a certain variability: it is up to the winemaker to decide whether to capture its unique essence or to use it in a more general way.

      At Vie di Romans, the Chardonnay variety was chosen because it has an innate, genetic ability to connect in a very noticeable way with the different soil-climate complexes in which it grows. The six different Climat wines come from specific Chardonnay parcels within the two crus vineyards, Vie di Romans and Ciampagnis, and contain the names or name components of the families who farmed these vineyards in the distant past - Nuts, Goss, Curie, Glesie, Boghis and Cortesar. In the past, local properties were very parcelled out and, unlike today, were farmed by the same family or owner for generations.

      It is important to mention that uniform viticulture and vinification practices were used in the vinification of all six site Chardonnays, so that no external factor could compromise the unique and natural expression. Each vintage (since the beginning of 2015) is the result of 18 months of "elevage sur lie" followed by two years of bottle ageing. The extended maturation period was deliberately chosen to allow the wine to develop the authentic sensory expression that a specific soil-climate unit is capable of producing.

      Gianfranco Gallo is convinced that the true identity of a wine and the terroir that produces it only emerges through longevity, because it is only through this process that the wine discovers its inner balance, stability and unmistakable identity. SUPERIORE.DE

    • "Palazzo Lana Extrême Riserva" Franciacorta DOCG 2009 Brut <br>6 Bottles in OWC

      “Palazzo Lana Extrême Riserva” Franciacorta DOCG 2009 Brut · 6 Bottles in OWC

      Palazzo Lana Extrême Riserva is a masterpiece from a great vintage. The single-varietal Pinot Nero sets the scene with a complex bouquet of fresh yeast, pear and lemongrass. On the palate, a bright fruit, firm, with lively acidity and wonderfully constant perlage. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Pretty aromas of jasmine, honey, apple pie, orange zest and apricot pastry. It's medium-bodied with sharp acidity and creamy bubbles. Nice complexity and focus, with a mouthwatering, flavorful finish. Dry." James Suckling

      "Hints of pastry and anise are backed by firm acidity in this harmonious Franciacorta, with the finely detailed mousse carrying flavors of grainy pear, blanched almond and spring blossom. Lovely, with a racy, saline-laced finish." Wine Spectator

      "Inviting, with a nose of bruised apple, roasted nut, white blossom and baking spice, then a palate of vanilla, sweet spice, apple and ripe pear." Decanter

    • Barolo "Le Vigne Sibi et Paucis" Riserva DOCG 2011 <br>3 Bottles in OWC

      Barolo “Le Vigne Sibi et Paucis” Riserva DOCG 2011 · 3 Bottles in OWC

      For a few years now, Luciano has been holding back a small quantity of his Barolo Le Vigne and allowing it to mature further in bottle in his cellar. The result is called "Sibi et Paucis", the impressive and rare opportunity to experience the magnificent ageing potential of his great Baroli.

      The 2011 Barolo Le Vigne (Riserva) is an opulent and well-formed wine with a fine cherry-like softness and roundness that you don't get in the Barolo Cannubi Boschis. Le Vigne delivers an unexpected additional touch of opulence that fits the historic profile of the Nebbiolo grape and, for all its directness, it has the inner grace and incipient balance for further positive development in the cellar. SUPERIORE.DE

      "From a hot and dry vintage that saw dusty winds blowing up through the Mediterranean and spreading particles of sand from Africa, this wine shows open-knit appeal with loose texture and lots of dark fruit intensity. The Luciano Sandrone 2011 Barolo Le Vigne Sibi et Paucis pours from the bottle with rich and velvety intensity, followed by dried cherry, blackberry, spice, leather and tar." Robert Parker

      "This shows real clarity and precision of fruit and fine tannins. The bark and mushroom character is fascinating, but the extended character of wet earth adds to the whole experience. It's so long and refined, yet muscular. Just starting to open now. Fantastic." James Suckling

    • Selezione "La Botte di Gianni" <br>Trebbiano d'Abruzzo Riserva DOC 2010<br> Montepulciano d'Abruzzo Riserva DOC 2010<br> 2x3 Bottles in OWC

      Selezione “La Botte di Gianni” · Trebbiano d’Abruzzo Riserva DOC 2010 · Montepulciano d’Abruzzo Riserva DOC 2010 · 2x3 Bottles in OWC

      Over the course of three decades, Gianni Masciarelli has created one of the leading wineries in Italy. He died far too early in the summer of 2008, his love was for the landscape, the people and the grape varieties of Abruzzo. For the wines he always chose Montepulciano d'Abruzzo and Trebbiano d'Abruzzo.

      Today the winery is successfully continued by Giannis wife, Marina Cvetic and daughter Miriam. And they vinify with "La Botte di Gianni" his vision of Trebbiano and Montepulciano.

      3 bottles of 0,75l | Trebbiano d'Abruzzo "La Botte di Gianni" Riserva DOC 2010

      Of a rich straw yellow colour, clean, aromatic bouquet of ripe tropical fruit. On the palate very full-bodied, but beautifully clear, long finish. Finest Riserva quality. SUPERIORE.DE

      "This shows the magic of whites from Abruzzo: bright and brilliant and intense with sliced limes, apples and minerals. Its full-bodied and wonderful acidity gives this wine tension and brightness. Named after the late Gianni Masciarelli, founder of the winery, only 892 bottles were produced of these. Think grand cru Chablis." James Suckling

      3 bottles of 0,75l | Montepulciano d'Abruzzo "La Botte di Gianni" Riserva DOC 2010

      Deep dark ruby sparkling, aromas of blackberry, elderberry, leather and some cinnamon. Dense tannin on the palate, much depth, tightly structured, elegant enamel, long. Finest Riserva quality. SUPERIORE.DE

      "With only 869 bottles produced, the 2010 Montepulciano d'Abruzzo La Botte di Gianni is dedicated to the winery's visionary founder. Gianni Masciarelli died of a sudden heart attack in 2008. This beautiful rendition speaks directly to the personality of the man. This is a strong, stubborn, energetic and complex red wine with thick layers of dark fruit, spice and cigar box. The wine shows a firm tannic background and an uncompromising style." Robert Parker

      For a few years now, Luciano has been holding back a small quantity of his Barolo Cannubi Boschis and allowing it to mature further in bottle in his cellar. The result is called "Sibi et Paucis", the impressive and rare opportunity to experience the magnificent ageing potential of his great Baroli.

      Barolo Cannubi Boschis (Riserva) 2011 from Luciano Sandrone is one of the protagonists of the vintage. Taut and firm, it shows the potential for enormous depth and dimension with dark fruits, spices, liquorice and white truffle. Tasting the other matured vintages of Sandrone, it is obvious that they perform exceptionally well in warm years like 2011. With the years of maturity, it has developed dazzlingly and will continue to present itself in full grace and power for at least another 10 years. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Dark red fruit with dried strawberries and sliced plums on the nose, as well as some dried fruit and cedar. Full-bodied and very chewy for a Cannubi. Tannic and powerful. Very old-style. Muscular." James Suckling
