• "Cassiopea Pagus Cerbaia" Rosato Bolgheri DOC 2017

      “Cassiopea Pagus Cerbaia” Rosato Bolgheri DOC 2017

      Pagus Cerbaia refers to a prime small plot of sedimentary soils. This is where the small quantities of Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon come from, which are partially fermented in amphorae and oak barrels after the harvest. Bottled in only a few hundred bottles, the "Selection Rosato" offers an intense floral aroma and beguiles the palate in a lively, cheerful way with a lingering spicy note and a wonderfully complex finish. SUPERIORE.DE

      "This is very layered and beautiful with sliced-strawberry, lemon and peach character. Medium-bodied, it shows finesse and balance with beautiful fruit and focus. Crisp and dry. Fermented 50 per cent in barrel and 50 per cent in amphora." James Suckling

    • "Don Antonio" Nero d'Avola Sicilia IGT 1999

      “Don Antonio” Nero d’Avola Sicilia IGT 1999

      An exciting rarity: original wine from the private stocks of the winery. Intensely red in the glass, interspersed with dark orange reflections. The aroma of ripe red berries and oriental spices is captivating. Elegance, finesse and persistence characterise the taste, which lies densely across the palate and reveals a beautiful fruit, silky tannins and a characterful note of maturity despite its older age. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Deep, dark ruby-purple. Roasted aromas of blackberry marmalade, toasted coffee, bitter chocolate and ink. Rich, dense flavors of blackberry, blueberry and minerals. Warm and plush from the attack to the finish; a wine of impressive weight and length. The best nero d'Avola I tasted this year." Vinous

      "The finest wine I have ever tasted from the Nero d'Avola grape is Morgante's 1999 Don Antonio, a cuvee of 100% Nero d'Avola aged in 100% new French oak, and bottled without filtration. Malolactic fermentation was also done in barrel. This exquisite effort boasts an opaque purple/blue color as well as an extraordinary bouquet of creamy new oak intertwined with blackberry liqueur, flowers, and cassis. This ripe, full-bodied beauty possesses great intensity, explosive richness, and a finish that lasts for over 35 seconds. This is a revolutionary example from a varietal indigenous to Sicily. Moreover, it should drink well for a decade or more. Wow!" Robert Parker

    • "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

    • Vermouth di Torino <br>in Gift Box

      Vermouth di Torino · in Gift Box

      From the very beginning, Pio Cesare produced limited quantities of Barolo Chinato and Vermouth, strictly following a family recipe handed down from his grandfather. At the beginning of the 1950s, however, production was discontinued as tastes and preferences changed.

      In recent years, it has been noticed that Piedmont lovers are increasingly longing for traditional character, strong personality and great individuality in aromatic wines and wine-based aperitifs. As a result, the decision was taken to produce small quantities of Barolo Chinato and Vermouth again, again strictly according to a secret family recipe, kept under lock and key for many years under the careful supervision of the grandmother, granddaughter of the founder.

      In addition to absinthe, which is essential for the production of a good wormwood, it is refined with a mixture of 26 aromatic herbs such as marjoram leaves, gentian roots, orange zest and others, which are dosed together strictly according to the family recipe that has been handed down. Various white wines from the winery are added, including Moscato d'Asti. After 15 days of maceration, the wormwood obtained is aged in oak barrels for at least 4 months. Finally, the recipe is rounded off with the addition of caramelized sugar, which gives this vermouth its bright colour and unmistakable aroma and taste.

      Connoisseurs enjoy it in the old "Piedmontese style": no ice, just a small slice of lemon peel. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Thanks to its funky retro packaging, this is one of the most exciting projects to come out of downtown Alba in a very long time. The Pio Cesare NV Vermouth di Torino sees a base of Chardonnay enhanced with Moscato. (Like the estate's other fortified wine, the Barolo Chinato, only 1,000 bottles are released per year.) The Vermouth pours forth from the bottle with an orange or copper color. It is thick and viscous, taking its time as it swirls around the bowl of my glass. The bouquet reveals mountain herb and medicinal tones, with lots of mint and spearmint. There is some blood orange, citrus, licorice, camphor ash, vanilla and spice. This Vermouth is all fun and charm." Robert Parker

      “Bòggina A” Sangiovese Val d’Arno di Sopra DOC 2018 (BIO)

      The A in the name of the Boggina stands for the natural wine aged for about 6 months in terracotta amphorae of 400-600 Liters each, which is bottled in an edition of just 1,200 bottles without further addition of sulphites. Bright, luminous garnet red. The bouquet is ethereal, very delicate and nuanced, with a very precise fragrance interpretation of the Sangiovese grape. Medium-bodied, with a beautiful structure and authentic Sangiovese fruit. The finish is highly drinkable, with silky tannins and beguiling length. A masterpiece of beauty and elegance. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Sparkling ruby with a slight garnet sheen. Opens with notes of herbs and anchovies, then lots of fresh plum. Shows lots of juicy fruit on the palate, grippy, savoury tannin, good assets, but needs additional maturity." Falstaff

      "The 2018 Bòggina A (Bògginanfora) offers a striking expression of Sangiovese. Sweet red cherry, mint, orange peel and cinnamon all grace this silky, mid-weight wine from Petrolo and proprietor Luca Sanjust. The translucent beauty of Sangiovese comes through loud and clear. The Bòggina A (Bògginanfora) is 100% Sangiovese fermented and aged in amphora. What a gorgeous wine." Vinous

      "The Petrolo 2018 Val d'Arno di Sopra Bòggina A is Sangiovese that has been aged in amphorae. The Bòggina A is pure and punchy in its fruit intensity, with chiseled aromas of wild cherry and dried rose potpourri. The wine offers very soft and subdued tannins, with the natural structure and staying power coming from the crunchy healthiness of the fruit." Robert Parker

      "The purity of fruit here is impressive with cherries, plums and highlights of grilled meat and wet earth. Some tile, too. Full-bodied with chewy tannins that are pure and polished. Lots of fruit at the end, but not overdone. From organically grown grapes. Fermented and aged in amphora." James Suckling

      The A in the name of the Boggina stands for the natural wine aged in terracotta amphoras of 400-600 Liters each for approx. 6 months, which is bottled in a quantity of just 1,200 bottles without any further addition of sulphites. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Bright, bright garnet red. Opened with a pronounced earthy note, followed by cranberries and raspberries. On the palate a lot of fine-meshed tannin, interwoven with fine enamel, very clear and juicy." Falstaff

      "The 2016 Bòggina A is 100% Sangiovese done in amphora. Crushed flowers, dried rose petals, mint, sweet tobacco and savory herbs give the wine much of its distinctive, pungent personality. Time in the glass helps soften some of the more angular contours that are present initially, while also allowing the aromatics to fully emerge." VINOUS

      "This is elegant, offering cherry, plum, tobacco, leather and earth flavors, backed by lively acidity. Harmonious and long, echoing the leather and tobacco elements, with a hint of mineral." Wine Spectator

      "Extremely refined and beautiful with tight density of fruit and polished, linear tannins. Full to medium body and a bright, beautiful finish. Iron and stones, too. Made in amphora." James Suckling

      "Aged in amphorae, the 2016 Val d'Arno di Sopra Bòggina A is a pure expression of Sangiovese. The wine is beautifully ethereal, delicate and fragile, showing focused purity and intensity at the same time. In a nutshell, this wine embraces all the best characteristic of this iconic vintage, especially in terms of the crystalline authenticity of its varietal aromas. Luca Sanjust experimented with Spanish clay vessels and then went back to Tuscan terracotta amphorae made with clay from Impruneta (not far from Florence). This wine is light and luminous with mid-weight texture but a very long and silky finish. It is a true beauty." Robert Parker

      "Very perfumed aromas of plum, dried berry, cedar, and flower. Full body, with velvety tannins and a juicy finish. Love the texture and richness to this wine. Fascinating smoky undertone. Amphora gives it a life and energy of its own. No wood." James Suckling

      "Bright ruby of pale to medium intensity. Warm, fragrant, almost burnt aromas and real texture and tension. The wine really does taste as though it had little bits of clay dissolved in it – but rather agreeably. Long and vibrant." Jancis Robinson

      "Bòggina A originated in 2011, when Sanjust decided to ferment and age a portion of the wine in amphorae. The 2015 Bòggina A is a delicious rendering of unadorned sangiovese, its fresh red-cherry flavors brimming with vibrant acidity. Lean and taut at first, the wine fleshes out with exposure to air, evolving into darker fruit tones tinged with anise and fennel." Wine&Spirits

      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

      From the very beginning, Pio Cesare produced limited quantities of Barolo Chinato and Vermouth, strictly following a family recipe handed down from his grandfather. At the beginning of the 1950s, however, production was discontinued as tastes and preferences changed.

      In recent years, it has been noticed that Piedmont lovers are increasingly longing for traditional character, strong personality and great individuality in aromatic wines and wine-based aperitifs. As a result, the decision was taken to produce small quantities of Barolo Chinato and Vermouth again, again strictly according to a secret family recipe, kept under lock and key for many years under the careful supervision of the grandmother, granddaughter of the founder.

      An infusion of chinchona (China Calissaja and Succirubra bark) is macerated for 21 days in a small quantity of classic Barolo. Then a mixture of aromatic herbs such as gentian root, rhubarb, cardamom seeds, sweet and bitter orange, cinnamon and other spices are added, which together make up the special family recipe. After a few weeks of ageing, a certain amount of classic Barolo is added. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Only 1,000 bottles per year are released of the Pio Cesare NV Barolo Chinato, a fortified digestif that pours from the bottle with a dark garnet color and faint hints of copper and amber. This bottle takes you on a terrific journey into a favorite local tradition. Made with a base of Barolo wine, the nose offers layers of dried cherry and fruit, but perhaps the biggest aromatic influence here are those dusty mineral notes that subtract from the natural sweetness of the wine. That 16% alcohol content also serves to align your palate away from the fruit. Instead, you get medical herb, dried ginger and camphor ash." Robert Parker

      White wines from Etna are always special and in a league of their own due to the usually very old vines, the extreme altitude and the usually minimal yield per hectare. When the origin of the Carricante grapes is the small parcel (Contrada) Caselle with mostly 100-year-old rootless bush vines (Alberelli), even connoisseurs can be excited. The soil, formed by centuries of volcanic activity, has numerous layers of minerals and salts, pumice, lapilli, fine and light ash. This distinctly rare terroir is particularly fertile and produces late-ripening, healthy, fresh and very aromatic grapes, despite the usually great thermal excesses during the summer season. Silvia Maestrelli produces just 650 bottles of this exceptional wine in good years, so you can imagine that we are fortunate to be able to offer a few cases of this rare vintage.

      Il Musmeci Contrada Caselle delights on the nose with fresh citrus notes, refined by hints of candied fruit and delicate notes of smoke and toast. On the palate, it refreshes with a dense and vertical acidity structure. In the extremely complex taste, we find the characteristic minerality and freshness and a hint of almonds and iodine in addition to a racy sugar-acid interplay. Tip: Be sure to aerate before drinking and ideally serve in Burgundy glasses! SUPERIORE.DE

      "The 2017 Etna Bianco Contrada Caselle Il Musmeci is stunning yet refined, wafting up with a vivid display of yellow flowers, ginger spice, mulled apple, hints of lemon and crushed stone. It's silky and pliant in feel, washing across the palate with glycerol weight that is perfectly offset by tart orchard fruits and salty mineral tones. Residual acids and sour citrus add tension, balancing its youthful density. A year or two of cellaring is recommended for this gorgeous Carricante." Vinous

    • Ribolla Gialla Venezia Giulia IGT 2011

      Ribolla Gialla Venezia Giulia IGT 2011

      When Josko Gravner conjures up a Ribolla Gialla in the bottle as a so-called Natural Wine, then the most magnificent autochthonous grape variety of Friuli is in the very best hands. Deep orange with amber reflections. Seductive, initially slightly reductive, oxidative, sweet bouquet of dried orange, peach and sweet spices. The palate has an impressively silky texture with lush fruit, honey notes, hints of baked apple and vanilla. It is taut, stable and could be mistaken for a red wine when tasted blind. Be sure to decant it and save some for the next day! SUPERIORE.DE

      "Bright, rich amber. Complex nose with notes of dried orange peel, apricots, cigar tobacco and spicy resin. Very powerful on the palate, with delicate tannin making itself felt on the back end." Falstaff

      "Lustrous amber. Deep and compact with enormous depth, but at the same time still a little tight on the nose. Bread crust, acacia honey and savoury, saline notes. Very tightly knit apricot and spice palate, and still very compact but with a fine, persistent thread of acidity running all the way through the wine. Lots of super-fine tannins like a wall-to-wall carpet for the still-compact fruit. A Ribolla Gialla monument." Jancis Robinson

      "Glorious vivid amber colour. Elegant and complex with aromas of dried fruits, earth, citrus zest, and honey. Amazing for its age." Decanter

Viscous and a little luscious on the palate but this has 'only' 14%. Full spread of aromas and great depth, yet remains elegant and lifted because of the succulent acidity that melts into the texture. Super-fine tannins stick to the palate. Enormous length and focus. Can be approached now, but will develop much further." Jancis Robinson

    • "Troy" Chardonnay Riserva Alto Adige DOC 2017

      “Troy” Chardonnay Riserva Alto Adige DOC 2017

      Troy is not a normal Chardonnay. Rather, it is the archetype of a Chardonnay, as Wolfgang Klotz, managing director of probably the most successful winegrowers' cooperative in South Tyrol, sees it. The grapes come from two selected vineyards in Söll, near Tramin. Not only does a Mediterranean climate prevail there, but also quite cold fall winds at night determine the vegetation. Both factors ensure optimal development of the plants and fruits. The berries are handpicked piece by piece and it is therefore clear to every wine connoisseur that this is an absolutely prestigious project of the cooperative. It is therefore not surprising that only 3,000 bottles of this vintage are sold in selected specialist shops and top restaurants.

      Intense straw to golden yellow. Tropical fruit on the nose, a hint of camomile and mint, then fine toasted notes and a subtle nutty touch. On the palate, you can almost taste the proximity of the mountains, its clarity, freshness and intensity: exotic notes of yellow ripe fruit, then again some nuttiness and, in addition, again a beguiling liveliness and minerality, which ends in an equally long final. Chardonnay can be like this, chapeau! SUPERIORE.DE

      "Shiny light golden yellow. Powerful and appealing nose, of light caramel, banana and baby pineapple. Shows nice play on the palate, salty and dense, appealing rich fruit notes in the middle course, then long and profound in the final." Falstaff

      "Pretty aromatics of guava, melon, peach and orange zest, then a luscious palate of sweet. plush fruit." Decanter

    • "Colonia" Chianti Classico Gran Selezione DOCG 2017

      “Colonia” Chianti Classico Gran Selezione DOCG 2017

      When you hear the story of the effort that went into the Colonia vineyard, you have to wonder if the fine people of Fèlsina are absolutely crazy. It took them two years to remove the imposing rock that had forced previous generations of the Poggiali family to virtually abandon this noble site. But it is thanks to the ambitious Giovanni Poggiali that this spectacular vineyard (Vigneto Colonia) became what it is today. It has reddish-brown soils, is rich in magnesium and iron, and is thus quite different from all other Fèlsina sites.

      Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Colonia is a wine of enormous beauty and depth. Dark ruby in the glass, it smells expressively mineral and pure, with aromas of dark cherry and blackcurrant. Mineral and graphite aromas and the simply terrific focus on the Sangiovese grape make it an incomparable masterpiece. On the palate, it is extremely well-balanced and elegant with optimally integrated wood - it is immediately clear that another top wine of the house has been created that is more than a match for the Fontalloro. Fortunately for those who can taste it, there are only 3,000 bottles per vintage. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Shiny ruby with garnet glints. The nose shows emphatic earthy components of tobacco and red beet, then lots of raspberry. Full-bodied and hearty in the attack and course, shows lots of grippy tannin, also earthy notes on the palate." Falstaff

      "Lots of cherry and vanilla aromas and flavors with a full body, dense and structured center palate and a long, flavorful finish. Shows blue fruit and dried flowers at the end." James Suckling

      "Named for an ancient heliotherapy colony that once existed here, Colonia exudes its luminous location and stony, sunbaked, wild surroundings. Warm and generous with sundried tomato and cherry, grilled sage, iron and vanilla, this is unabashedly powerful while maintaining extraordinary balance. It absorbs its new-barrique ageing effortlessly, allowing a savoury, umami character to shine through. Ample dusty tannins coat the mouth but the finish is clean and energetic." Decanter

      "Tasted young, the Fèlsina 2017 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Colonia shows a darker color of fruit (compared to the lither and more delicate 2016 vintage that I tasted at the same time). Sangiovese grapes were naturally concentrated by the heat and dryness of the vintage, and the oak signature is more prominent here. I'd definitely suggest putting this wine aside in your cellar to allow for better integration. I kept my open bottle at 55 degrees Fahrenheit and tasted it again two days later. The wine opened beautifully to show rich and profound fruit with some of those earthy and dusty limestone aromas that are so specific to this labor-intensive farming site on a remote hilltop. The score you see here was adjusted higher after that second tasting. A mere 6,000 bottles were made." Robert Parker

      “The Wine Collection” Sauvignon Bianco Alto Adige DOC 2016 · 0,75l in Gift Box

      With the 2015 vintage, the St. Michael-Eppan Winery began crowning select varietal wines for the first time. Only 3,000 bottles of these top selections enter the global market each year.

      Also in 2016, the choice fell on a single-varietal Sauvignon Bianco from the best grapes of selected micro-locations. Gentle pressing with 3 days of skin contact, followed by 12 months of fermentation in tonneau and, in addition, another 15 months on the fine yeast in stainless steel tanks give it a unique depth and finesse. After another 9 months in the bottle, it is only released for sale. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Another new release from this flagship winery. Only 3,000 bottles of this top selection reach the market every year. A single-varietal Sauvignon Blanc from the best grapes of selected micro-locations. Gentle pressing with 3 days of skin contact, then 12 months of fermentation in tonneau, 15 months on the fine lees in stainless steel tanks, 9 months in bottle. 100% barrique. Multi-layered bouquet with notes of gooseberries, herbs and ethereal notes like sage. Supple and polished, dense and generous fruit well embedded in the creamy melt with delicate toasted notes, beguilingly long final." Weinwisser

      "Wide spectrum of aromas, passion fruit, sage. At the palate slim, creamy texture, aromatic power. Fine smoky notes, no lightweight, but still prancing. Enormous density, unusually high maturity potential." Vinum

      "Sparkling yellow-green. Present, intense nose with notes of sage, elderflower and ripe dark currant, a little smoky in the background. Shows very good tension on the palate, notes of gooseberries, currant jelly and elderflowers, very long finish, creamy melt." Falstaff

      "Luminous straw-green. Pungent wild herbs, orange peel, green fruits and spices on the nose. Round and broad on entry, then more linear and reserved in the middle, with enough saline edge to buffer the glyceral sweetness. Finishes long with flinty and stony notes." Vinous

      "The 2016 Alto Adige Sauvignon The Wine Collection opens to bright aromas of passion fruit, papaya and wild sage. This is a lean-bodied white wine with smooth richness, a creamy texture and very pretty aromatic intensity. There is a modern or contemporary streak to this wine that takes it a step closer to a so-called international palate, but no matter—the wine is just terrific all the same. The Wine Collection series was created to showcase the estate's most prestigious and age-worthy wines." Robert Parker

      Taffetà is one of the richest, most opulent and most interesting wines of Chianti Classico. A pure Colorino - rare and ingenious. SUPERIORE.DE

      "The 2011 Colorino Taffe Ta', Poggiopiano's 100% Colorino, is a real stunner. Inky blue/purplish fruit, smoke, tar, graphite, licorice and menthol saturate the palate as this dramatic, ripe wine shows off its unmistakable personality. Colorino is most often seen as a blender with Sangiovese in Chianti Classico, rarely on its own. Poggiopiano's version is a real turn-on and one of the most unique, riveting wines being made in Tuscany today. The style is unctuous and opulent, yet all the elements fall into place effortlessly."

      "Bright elegant straw yellow with light greenish reflections. Shows complex and multilayered in the nose, with nuances of flint, mint, a hint of white chocolate, rich yellow fruit and bright spice. On the palate, punchy and very elegant, straightforward and long, very complex, king class." Falstaff

      "Plenty of toasty and vanilla oak, but this simultaneously rich and lively chardonnay has so much candied lemon, melon and sliced apple that it's no problem. Subtle, walnut and almond character. Long, intense finish, in which the fruit, mineral and oak notes are beautifully intertwined." James Suckling

    • "Plinius" Rosso Boca DOC 2007

      “Plinius” Rosso Boca DOC 2007

      If you frequently participate in barrel tastings, you know that the same wine can develop differently in each barrel. So far so good, because usually it is only nuances that even out after bottling and further bottle ageing. In the case of the 2007 Boca, however, Christoph Künzli very quickly noticed that the wine from one of his barrels had a higher complexity and at the same time a youthful exuberance, which impressed him so much that he decided without further ado to wait with the bottling of this barrel. After a total of six and a half years, he then bottled a Boca that not only opens up new facets, but also represents the terroir in a terrific way like no other. The result was a wine that he dedicated to Pliny the Elder (23-79 AD), who first mentioned the growing region in his "Naturalis Historia" ...

      Deep bouquet of crushed flowers, small sweet red berries, mint and mountain herbs. On the palate of great fullness and richness with a beguiling texture and an almost weightless style. It captivates us until the long final, its purity and balance is unique. Plinius (i.e. this barrel of Boca 2007) is a fascinating and contemplative wine that should be followed in the glass for several hours (or days), if you manage to resist for that long. SUPERIORE.DE

    • "D'Alceo" Rosso Toscano IGT 2009

      “D’Alceo” Rosso Toscano IGT 2009

      Vigna d'Alceo '09 is a Cabernet Sauvignon with a low proportion of Petit Verdot of the extra class. The bouquet is rich, clean and fruity. Impressive its harmony, powerful and yet with a lot of elegance. A perfectly shaped drop with the potential to increase in value! SUPERIORE.DE

      "A super generous red with spices, meat and berry character. Full body with round and velvety tannins. Rich and generous. Gorgeous wine. A blend of cabernet sauvignon and petite verdot." James Suckling

      "Bright, rich ruby violet. Opened in the nose with smoky-mineral notes, then plenty of plump fruit, inviting for elderberries and blackberries. It shows itself polished on the palate, opens with a lot of finely woven, rich tannin, builds up for a long time, a lot of juicy fruit, rich pressure in the finale." Falstaff

      "The 2009 D'Alceo is quite a bit firmer and more structured than the Sammarco. An exotic melange of dark cherries, plums, grilled herbs, cassis and new leather emerges from the glass, backed up by tons of structure. Over the last few months, the 2009 d'Alceo has softened a bit, releasing expressive, floral aromatics and brighter shades of fruit. This is a wonderfully deep, resonant d'Alceo. The 2009 will drink well with minimum cellaring within the context of prior vintages. According to Luca di Napoli, the trick to 2009 was harvesting on the early side. Judging by this effort, I would say Rampolla nailed the vintage." Antonio Galloni

    • "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

    • "Sopra il Pozzo" Rosso Arcurìa Etna DOC 2015

      “Sopra il Pozzo” Rosso Arcurìa Etna DOC 2015

      Graci's new growth Sopra il Pozzo is a "selection from selection" and comes from the vineyard of Arcurìa. It is the red archetype of an Etna Rosso, a Nerello Cru with the unique DNA of the volcanic-stony terroir. Light ruby with orange reflexes, in the nose candied fruits, cooling firewood, some anise and herbs. On the palate it is silky without being smooth, its subtle wood and delicate acid wire harmonize perfectly with the flanking tannin to an unforgettable mineral and salty finish. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Medium-bright, warm red; mature-peppery, arouses curiosity; peppery-maturing, certain fullness, fine astringency." Merum

      "Bright garnet red with a fine shimmer. Emphasizes fragrant nose, of rhubarb, pomegranate and raspberry. Bright on the palate, it shows a lot of present fruit, especially pomegranate and raspberry, then opens up with dense, pithy tannin, firm pressure and long final, in the final accentuated salty notes". Falstaff

      "Pale ruby-garnet. Ripe, scented maraschino cherry, with hazelnut and subtle smoky complexity. Sweet-savoury, flinty cherry palate fruit, with sandy, firm tannic structure and quite bright acidity. Long, smoky-spicy finish. Power over elegance." Jancis Robinson

      "This was the first vintage of an outstanding parcel within Arcuria that henceforth is bottled separately. For all the excellence of the regular 2015, this is different, with richer raspberry aromas and greater aromatic weight. It's very elegant and silky, highly concentrated with fine acidity. It's more skeletal now than the regular wine: taut, lingering and very long." Decanter

      "This is a new wine from Alberto Graci with fruit sourced from the part of his vineyard holding located "above the well" in the Contrada Arcuria not too far from the Graci winery. The beautiful 2015 Etna Rosso Arcurìa Sopra il Pozzo pours from the bottle with medium intensity and mild ruby intensity. You might mistake this wine for a Pinot Noir or Nebbiolo if you were to judge by appearance alone. However, the bouquet shows that strong volcanic character that is unmistakable in the red wines from Etna; wild berries, blue flowers, red currant, licorice, mountain herbs and crushed stone all play leading roles on the bouquet."

    • "Vigna Pirchschrait" Konrad Oberhofer Gewürztraminer Rarità Alto Adige DOC 2006 <br> 0,75l in OWC

      “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
