• "La Gioia" Toscana Rosso IGT 2016 <br>JEROBOAM 5 Liters in OWC

      “La Gioia” Toscana Rosso IGT 2016 · JEROBOAM 5 Liters in OWC

      Genuine expression of Sangiovese, terroir and the typical Riecine style, which is based above all on elegance. Deep, sparkling colour, complex, animating scent of small red berries and corresponding persistence on the palate. An impressive wine with the finesse of a great Sangiovese. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Bright ruby with a fine garnet shimmer. Attractive nose with notes of pomegranate, cherry and spicy thyme. Round and polished at the base, shows very well worked out fruit, present and at the same time delicate, then opens with a lot of handy tannin. Falstaff

      "A pure expression of Sangiovese, the 2016 La Gioia is a beauty. Off the bat, the wine shows a specific mineral note that reminds me of black stone or dusty granite. Beyond that, you get a thick and dense layer of black fruit and plum. The wine is never heavy or flat, instead it shows a lot of energy and freshness with a point of spiciness on the close. That energy is typical of Gaiole in Chianti. This is a medium-to-full bodied Sangiovese with all its various moving parts in harmony, ready for a Tuscan bean and tomato stew with fresh bread and healthy wedges of pecorino." Robert Parker

      "This is a powerful red with beautiful ripe tannins and freshness. Full and linear. Opens in the mouth. A pure sangiovese. Yeah!" James Suckling

    • Brunello di Montalcino "Pianrosso" DOCG 2016 <br>JEROBOAM 5 Liters in OWC

      Brunello di Montalcino “Pianrosso” DOCG 2016 · JEROBOAM 5 Liters in OWC

      Pianrosso comes from a southwestern location of the Castelnuovo dell'Abate subzone at an altitude of about 300 m with mainly Galestro soils. It opens the pleasure cinema with a rich, sparkling garnet red. The bouquet is seductive and deep with hints of dark and black fruits, sage, rose petals and violets. Then on the palate, a pronounced salty-fresh minerality that immediately enters into a wonderful harmony with the fine-grained tannins and perfectly layered fruit, powerfully guiding the wine with optimal balance into a soft, never-ending finish. The overall level of most Brunellos from this dream vintage is already extremely high, but Pianrosso 2016 raises the bar a notch higher even among these strong competitors! SUPERIORE.DE

      "Sparkling, bright garnet red. Opens with notes of tobacco and ripe plum, licorice in the background. Gripping, firm tannin on the palate spreads out richly, firm and sturdy, showing lots of ripe fruit notes, slightly malty on the final, yet rich pressure and long finish." Falstaff

      "Dark, rich and deeply alluring, the 2016 Brunello di Montalcino Pianrosso boasts a display of ripe black fruits encased in an air of crushed stone, sage and exotic spice. While velvety and almost creamy in texture, it finds harmony through juicy acids and a mix of ripe black cherry and plums. Hints of licorice and baker’s chocolate balance the Pianrosso’s salty minerality and fine-grained tannins through the long and dramatic finale. There’s beautiful symmetry here for a wine with such power. Place this in the cellar for ten years or more; but don’t make the mistake of not checking in from time to time, because I expect the 2016 to enjoy a long and open drinking window." Vinous

      "Lots going on here with black plums, ripe cherries, cedar, smoke and cocoa on the nose. Ash, chocolate, crushed walnuts and some praline. Mushrooms. This has firm, ripe tannins and a full body. Flavorful and juicy finish. Very structured." James Suckling

      "The Ciacci Piccolomini d'Aragona 2016 Brunello di Montalcino Pianrosso is a single-vineyard expression that draws its fruit from an 11.7-hectare parcel with moderately thick galestro soils with ancient marine material. This special site, awash under the brilliant light of a big, open sky, does indeed deliver a more pronounced mineral signature, with wild berry, rose and rosemary essence. This is a beautiful wine, taut and silky, with elegant tannins that will endure ambitious bottle aging." Robert Parker
