• "Keya" Chiaretto Bardolino Classico DOC 2020

      “Keya” Chiaretto Bardolino Classico DOC 2020

      Keya is the impressive result of several years of experimental work, and the result is a rosato that perfectly expresses the style and personality of the Rizzardi sites in the hills above Bardolino. The label pays homage to the Venetian heritage of the Contessa M.C. Loredan, she ran the winery for many years and was instrumental in making Chiaretto Bardolino a much-loved wine classic of the region. The name is derived from the first two syllables of Chi-a-ret-to (KEY-A). Bright pink-red. On the nose, a delicate aroma of lemon, blood orange and elderberries. Fresh on the palate, with well-integrated acidity, dry and full of character on the finish. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Bright, light old pink. Fine and fragrant nose, of fresh flowers, plus some sour cherry and raspberry. Round and supple on the palate, delicate at the start, then gains in fullness, fine raspberry fruit, flows quietly along." Falstaff

      "Touch of rosiness in the colour of this one. Ultra-crisp white citrus, cooking apples dipped in white pepper and crushed raspberries. The acidity in this wine is electrifying. So racy it tastes as if it's breaking the speed limit in your mouth. Pomegranate pith. Very appetising. I'd love to try this with a spicy Turkish ezme salad!" Jancis Robinson

      "The 2020 Bardolino Chiaretto Classico Keya opens up with delicate notes of peach skin, dried orange peel and dusty florals. It's soft and enveloping with a soothing display of ripe melon and cooling herbal tones. The Keya tapers off incredibly long while maintaining vibrancy, as lingering minerality slowly fizzles out under an air of tropical citrus." Vinous

    • "Antigua" Monica di Sardegna DOC 2020

      “Antigua” Monica di Sardegna DOC 2020

      Intense aroma of ripe, fleshy red fruits, elderberries and roasted coffee. Warm, enveloping and full-bodied, unfolds with a lot of fruit melting and soft tannin. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Very light nose. pepcranberry fruit slashed with sorrel-leaf greens. Cheeky bitterness. Nippy builder's-brew astringency on wiry little tannins. This is fun! I could just imagine this, very slightly chilled, with a bowl of fregola con arselle, or, if you're far from Sardinian shores, a chilli and tomato pasta with loads of fresh olive oil and fresh basil leaves.

      "Softly shiny straw yellow. Distinct, orange-pith and lemon-peel nose with hints of lemon confit and Parmesan rind. Cut raw rhubarb hints. Lively, lemon and mandarin fruit palate. Refreshing, while at the same time it is viscous and full bodied." Jancis Robinson

    • "TM" Rosé Toscana IGT 2019

      “TM” Rosé Toscana IGT 2019

      Delicate pale old pink, in the nose apricot, yellow fruit and pink grapefruit. Delicate and fresh with a soft structure, which makes this impressively elegant Rosato from predominantly Merlot the perfect companion for mild Mediterranean dishes and seafood. SUPERIORE.DE

      "The 2019 T.M. Rosé is fresh yet also quite earthy, leaning toward savory herbs and crushed stone minerality, as notes of young strawberry and pretty florals come forward. On the palate, soft textures give way to a mix of ripe red berries and melon tones, carried by brisk acids. It finishes a bit short, yet with a mouthwatering, almost-salty quality, which just begs you to take another sip. There may not be unseen depths here, but the 2019 Tenuta Monteti is ready to give a lot of pleasure." Falstaff

      "Quite zesty with a bit more structure than a typical Provence rose. Good food wine with something to get your teeth into. A satisfying rosé for the table." Jancis Robinson

    • Brachetto d'Acqui DOC 2020 (frizzante)

      Brachetto d’Acqui DOC 2020 (frizzante)

      An elementary part of the Piedmontese drinking culture and probably one of the most underestimated wines in Italy: Light ruby red (with cherry-red foam), the clearly effervescent Brachetto d'Acqui presents itself. The bouquet is very aromatic with notes of nutmeg, rose and violets. The taste is extremely elegant, reminiscent of strawberries, round and finely balanced between mild sweetness and fruity, very refreshing astringency. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Bright purple, silver reflections, lush bouquet on the nose, notes of ripe red berries and roses. Juicy on the palate, silky texture, delicate and delicately tingling taste, fine sweetness underpinned with salty minerality on the finish. At 5.5%, a tremendously light-footed drinking pleasure." Falstaff

      "Palest ruby. Perfumed, sweet, flowery nose of wild strawberry, raspberry and with a hint of rose petals and spice. Sweet yet fresh, medium-sweet strawberry fruit palate. Perfect for elevenses or a pick-me-up during the day." Jancis Robinson

      Chianti Classico DOCG 2018 (BIO)

      Fine, lean and racy Chianti Classico from organic cultivation - and one of our special favourites for over 15 years. Engaging aromatics, dense, firm body, deep and juicy, with well-defined tannins and a fresh and appetising finish. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Just mid crimson. Pretty nose of sour cherry with a hint of nutmeg. Lithe and almost ethereal on the palate. Tangy cherry fruit with sandpapery tannins with a touch of bitterness. Not hugely profound, all is set on elegance." Jancis Robinson

      "A fresh, delicate Chianti Classico showing lots of typical character and brightness with orange-peel and bark undertones. Light to medium body, light tannins and a delicious, crisp finish." James Suckling

      "The 2018 Chianti Classico is a very pretty, enticing wine. Crushed flowers, sweet red cherry, pipe tobacco, cedar and mint all grace this exquisite, ethereal Chianti Classico from Coltibuono. All the elements simply fall into place effortlessly. Silky tannins round things out in style. This is such a beguiling Chianti Classico." Vinous

      "Pale ruby in hue but vibrantly scented, this displays a floral perfume of rose, violet and yellow broom, mingling with raspberry. Very appetising and fresh, it has an overall lightness of structure, with fine, elegant, powdery tannins and acidity which is expansive rather than piercing. Despite a feeling of weightlessness, it is a lovely, persistent wine." Decanter

      "Fresh and fragrant, this has vinous aromas of red berry, blue flower and dark culinary spice. The bright savory palate doles out crushed raspberry, red cherry and baking spice alongside vibrant acidity and taut polished tannins." Wine Enthusiast

      Our pure enthusiasm for this pure, authentic, wonderfully traditional Chianti Classico, which the very likeable Ingeborg Raspi Juergens and her family have been presenting to us for years: Ruby red, finely spicy, with refined depth of fruit, well proportioned on the palate, powerful, elegant structure, intense final. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Mid ruby with orange tinges. Pretty, balsamic nose hinting at rich cherry fruit and with saline hints. Compact fruit that is not entirely open yet, followed by some fierce tannins. It will be interesting to see what this looks like in two years' time." Jancis Robinson

      "This red is distinctive for its purity and charm. The supple texture and bright acidity usher the rose, cherry and raspberry flavors to a lingering conclusion. The firm structure lends support, ending with accents of earth and mineral." Wine Spectator

      “Michei di Michei” Müller Thurgau Vigneti delle Dolomiti IGT 2018

      The small Maso Michei vineyard owned by Martin Foradori supplies the strictly selected grapes for this great Müller Thurgau. The vineyards at an altitude of over 800m have an ideal southern exposure and, with their special microclimate, provide the grapes for a wine of great aromatic depth, which rightly belongs to the best representatives of its grape variety from the Dolomite region. It is only released on the market after a further 12 months of ageing in the bottle and is only produced in the best vintages.

      Intense light yellow. Fresh fruits on the nose, including green apple and bitter orange, lime blossom and the notes of nutmeg typical of the grape variety. Fresh on the palate, equipped with a lively fruit-acid play, this wine presents itself with a finesse that convinces us completely. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Straw yellow. Fresh nose with aromatic pear notes and mandarin pith. Gentle and not hugely intense pear and mandarin palate. The moderate acidity strikes a good balance. Fragrant, fresh finish. Appetising aperitif style." Jancis Robinson

      Very fine, finesse-rich Chianti Classico in organic quality with intense aromas of berries, red fruits and violets. Refined taste, harmonious and spicy, the light tannins are of velvety softness. This wine is pure drinking pleasure! SUPERIORE.DE

      "Bright, powerful ruby. Shows notes of cinnamon on the nose, then fine cherry and pomegranate. Lots of fresh, juicy cherry on the palate, becomes quite wide-meshed on the back end." Falstaff

      "Light, fresh nose with notably sweet, gentle fruit. Very distinctive, with less obvious tanginess than most of these wines. Super-digestible? I'd be interested to taste other wines from this estate. The persistence is certainly impressive." Jancis Robinson

    • "Vallenuova" Chianti Classico DOCG 2019

      “Vallenuova” Chianti Classico DOCG 2019

      Chianti Classico Vallenuova has the potential to become a favourite wine. It is the archetypal expression of Sangiovese from a single vineyard, which could not be more typical and authentic. Lively, sparkling ruby, a little cedar and small wild berries on the nose, along with spices, beetroot and white pepper. On the palate, leather, tobacco and a hint of citrus fruit, in the final it presents itself pleasantly lean with a convincing, drinkable freshness. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Lustrous crimson. Concentrated cherry fruit with a hint of leather, saline minerally notes and a suggestion of oak. Racy concentrated cherry fruit layered with fine, grainy tannins. Mouth-watering and almost a little tart and with a long fragrant raspberry and dark-spice finish." Jancis Robinson

      Open-hearted, very appealing bouquet of tart berry fruit, forest floor, bitter almond, blue flowers and grilled herb spice. On the palate with the typical Sangiovese profile of bright red berries, with wonderfully integrated acidity and freshness. A classic every year and unbeatable with light meat dishes and sugos.

      Chianti Classico DOCG 2019

      Classic Chianti Classico from stainless steel tanks with a rich and intense bouquet of black cherries, fresh plums, menthol and liquorice. Full-bodied on the palate, but not voluminous, very Sangiovese-typical. Clearly structured, of pure texture and long. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Transparent garnet. That floral note on the nose again, followed by real Sangiovese edginess and energy. Lots of drive. Persistent." Jancis Robinson

      "As always with Brancaia's Chianti Classicos, this brings together fruit from the estate's original holdings in Castellina with grapes from its Radda property. The 2019 really expresses the high altitude, cooler microclimate of the latter with fragrant florals, fresh mint and crisp red berries. It is vibrant, fluid and quenching in its acidity, while dusty red cherry and fine chalky tannins add intrigue. I love the purity of this 100% unoaked Sangiovese." Decanter

      "A beautiful Chianti Classico with blackberry, black-cherry and light chocolate character. Medium to full body, round and polished tannins and a long finish. So delicious now." James Suckling

      “Berardenga” Chianti Classico DOCG 2019

      Sangiovese in pure culture: Radiant ruby red. Rich in fruity-floral aromas, multi-layered, herbaceous, deep and of good polish with further development potential. A full-bodied and harmonious Chianti-Classico of the most authentic kind. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Mid ruby. Distinct chalky cherry nose with leafy green hints. Light of touch on the palate with lively raspberry and tangy cherry fruit and with chewy tannins on the finish." Jancis Robinson

      "At the southeastern limit of Chianti Classico, Fèlsina's expansive vineyards look towards Montalcino. The annata is assembled from various parcels rising from 320 to 420 metres on rocky calcareous soil with layers of sandstone. As usual, it is more earthy than fruity, bringing in evocative accents of violet, liquorice and pepper. The palate is superbly textured with fine, grainy tannins providing a sensuous grip. Dark fruited and tangy with admirable depth, it will drink well now and over the next decade. Finishes with a sprinkle of cinnamon." Decanter

      "A beautiful, creamy red with cherry and chocolate character. Hints of dried earth. It's medium-to full-bodied with creamy tannins and a long, flavorful finish. shows firmness and tension. Very drinkable now, but will improve beautifully with age." James Suckling

    • "Cùmaro" Rosso Conero Riserva DOCG 2016

      “Cùmaro” Rosso Conero Riserva DOCG 2016

      A dark berry, radiant Montepulciano in a rich, dark garnet red. Cassis, blueberry and ripe wild raspberry on the nose. Opens on the palate with grippy tannin, juicy, powerful, savoury-spicy course. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Deep lustrous ruby. Savoury-sweet oak nose with brooding dark fruit and hints of meat. The oak takes a big step back on the palate only adding a light dustiness to the cherry fruit. Bitter-sweet, powdery tannins add depth and soft grip to the fruit on the juicy finish. An international mould, which it more than manages to rise above." Jancis Robinson

      "Aromas of sour cherry, blackcurrant, lemon zest, bark and licorice. It's medium-to full-bodied with firm, fine tannins. Chewy and savory with a spiced finish." James Suckling

      "This is a highly recognized wine that enjoys its own special following in Italy and beyond. The 2016 Conero Riserva Cúmaro is a pure expression of Montepulciano from the Conero bluffs that dip into the Adriatic Sea on a small promontory where sunshine and sea breezes caress the vines. This wine is stacked tall and wide with dark fruit, sweet spice and cured tobacco. The wine is beautifully balanced, full and ripe. A classic Marchigiano lamb roast would pair nicely here."

    • "Le Cinciole" Chianti Classico DOCG 2017 (BIO)

      “Le Cinciole” Chianti Classico DOCG 2017 (BIO)

      Floral aromas and the scent of bright red fruits, with undertones of tobacco, foliage and menthol, which develop in the glass into a successful terroir wine that preserves the fragrance and primary aromas of the young Sangiovese. Pleasantly medium-bodied and authentic. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Deep, youthful ruby. Balsamic cherry nose with hints of tobacco leaf and cherry liqueur. Succulent ripe cherry fruit with tangy acidity and quite firm tannins - they are the give-away of the torrid 2017 vintage, but nothing else. Great length and depth." Jancis Robinson

      "Made with organically farmed Sangiovese, this opens with subtle aromas of black-skinned berry, scorched earth and cooking spice. The savory palate offers black cherry, clove and tobacco alongside fine-grained tannins." Wine Enthusiast

      "Le Cinciole's latest release, the 2017 offers tremendous freshness with beautiful restraint. After ageing for one year in 20hL French oak, this refines for a further 12 months in cement before bottling. It is slightly wilder and decidedly darker in its nuances than the 2016, with enticing lavender, black cherry, liquorice and a touch of leather. The palate is fairly dense, with appropriately grippy tannins lending support. It leaves the mouth clean, refreshed and satisfied." Decanter

      "Rich cherries and berries on the nose with hints of fresh oak and sage-like herbs, following through to a fullish palate with plump fruit, quite firm tannins and a bright mineral finish." James Suckling

      "The 2017 Chianti Classico is a gorgeous, inviting wine. Pliant fruit and soft contours give the 2017 so much immediacy and appeal. Silky tannins wrap around a core of dark red cherry while spice, new leather and sweet pipe tobacco infuse the 2017 with tremendous character. The 2017 is such a beautiful and inviting wine. Wow!"

      “Le Difese” Toscana IGT 2019

      Le Difese is one of the most beautiful price-quality wonders of Tuscany. Magnificent, sweetly perfumed fruit aromas in the opulent bouquet, just as generous and wide the long-lasting taste. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Surprisingly pale - more Pinot-like than a Cabernet blend! A sweet-sour red-cherry fruit profile, with a notable herbal edge, perhaps reflecting the higher Sangiovese proportion than 2018. On swirling, some cassis joins the party and there's a background woody, cinnamon note. That sweet-sour sense comes through on the palate too, with a ripeness of red cherry and strawberry cut through with acidity. Pretty fine-grained, powdery tannins that are more refined than previous Le Difese vintages I have tasted. A touch of alcohol on the finish, but overall an enjoyable, perfumed red." Jancis Robinson

      "Made with 55% Cabernet Sauvignon and 45% Sangiovese, this has enticing aromas of cassis, black tea, violet and wild herbs. Savory and elegantly structured, the medium-bodied palate shows ripe blackberry, star anise and a hint of coffee bean framed in lithe, polished tannins. Fresh acidity keeps it balanced."

      Chianti Classico DOCG 2017 (BIO)

      With the 2017 vintage, Querciabella presents a more mature, opulent Chianti Classico than in previous years. Wonderful scent of sweet raspberries, notes of tobacco and violets. Enormous density, compact structure, robust tannins, youthful and fresh temperament, coupled with a certain finesse. Ends long with notes of juicy red berries. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Shining Ruby. Beautiful, open-hearted nose, of ripe cherries and raspberries, rich fruit bouquet, delicate spice, appealing. On the palate of young cranberries, fruity course, juicy and clear, stretches very finely over the tongue to the final. Falstaff

      "Youthful ruby. Classy nose of sweet red fruit, oak and stones and hints of mint. Elegant, juicy and almost a little linear. A wine that contradicts the torrid vintage." Jancis Robinson

      "Gorgeous freshness here both on the nose and palate. Aromas of pepper, sage blossom, and lavender lead to a mouthful of red currants. Full-bodied but balanced in its proportioned, this is light on its feet with plenty of vitality." Decanter

      "This is a little jammy with lots of ripe fruit and both blueberry and chocolate character. Rich and flavorful, but still fresh and energetic. Shows the warmth of the vintage. From biodynamically grown grapes." James Suckling

      "The 2017 Chianti Classico is bright, floral and beautifully lifted, with lovely red berry and rose petal character. Pliant and supple, with terrific balance, the Querciabella 2017 is one of the more refined, restrained Chianti Classicos readers will come across in this vintage, with Radda very much driving the personality of the wine in its aromatic and red fruit profile. The 2017 finishes with terrific energy and nuance." Vinous

      Chianti Classico Riserva DOCG 2015

      A beautiful traditional wine of the Chianti Classico. The bouquet of wild berries, undergrowth, herbs and spices is broad and multi-faceted, the full flavour with beautiful energy, fidelity to the terroir and considerable persistence. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Dark, rich ruby. Fragrant, floral nose of roses and violets, then fresh wild berries, red currants, delicate spice. Dense and supple in the mouth, spreads out nicely, polished and with juicy tannin, firm pressure in the finish." Falstaff

      "Mid ruby with orange tinges. Subtle, fine nose of red fruit and stones. Elegant, sappy red fruit and bags of jagged tannins that demand more time in the bottle. Its elegance, freshness and firm structure set it up for graceful ageing." Jancis Robinson

      "The Castello di Radda 2015 Chianti Classico Riserva shows a ripe and nicely concentrated approach with sweet cherry, wild raspberry, crushed stone and grilled herb. This is a lean to mid-weight wine with the calming freshness and vitality that should be expected of Sangiovese from this prized corner of the Chianti Classico appellation." Robert Parker

      "A soft, fruity red with aromas and flavors of dried cherries and orange peel. Medium to full body. Tangy and delicious. Shows the richness and ripeness of the vintage." James Suckling

      "Dappled scents of fresh florals, autumn leaves and lovely tapered fruit with refined tannins and a long, poised finish." Decanter

    Things to know aboutJancis Robinson.
    Jancis Robinson.

    The British Jancis Robinsonwoman, MW, (*1950), is the most respected and influential wine author and taster in the world. And probably the most hard-working and widely travelled. She studied mathematics and philosophy at Oxford. She came to the subject of wine in 1975, when she was appointed to the editor-in-chief of Wine & Spirits, a traditional magazine for the specialist trade.

    In 1979, she became the wine correspondent for the Sunday Times. Soon, as Jancis Robinsona columnist for countless magazines and TV shows, she was also known outside Great Britain. Wine-Spectator, Decanter, Feinschmecker, Falstaffand many other international magazines published their columns and reviews. In 1984 she was the first person not to come from the wine trade to pass the demanding Master of Wine examination. She has been writing the weekly wine column in the Financial Times since 1990.

    Some of her many books became standard works of wine literature. The Oxford Wine Dictionary (The Oxford Companion to Wine), "The World Atlas of Wine" (with Hugh Johnson), and "Wine Grapes"in which she describes 1368 different grape varieties worldwide with Julia Harding (MW) and José Vouillamoz (one of the most famous grape variety geneticists). Since 2000 she is also present online and with her team of specialized journalists and Masters' of Wine she reports daily from all over the wine world.
