      Barolo “Ornato” DOCG 2016 · 6 Flaschen in Original-Holzkiste

      Ornato 2016 betört mit überzeugender Nuancierung und Energie den Gaumen. Rote Steinfrüchte, zerkleinerter Schotter, Orangenzeste, Gewürze und weißer Pfeffer schaffen einen geradezu exotischen Barolo voller Charme und mit hohem Wiedererkennungswert. Er bespielt alle Themen, um die es bei Serralunga geht - eine fantastische Leistung von Pio Boffa und dem gesamten Team von Pio Cesare. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Glänzendes Rubingranat. Zeigt sich in der Nase sehr kompakt, eröffnet mit balsamischen Komponenten, dann viel Kirsche und Preiselbeere, etwas Safran. Straff und zupackend am Gaumen, dunkle Frucht, viel Brombeere, Tannin in vielen Schichten, ist erst am Beginn einer langen Entwicklung, im Finale nach Melasse, bleibt ganz lange am Gaumen." Falstaff

      "Hints of sweet spice and minerals and earth on the nose. Succulent and elegant and with polished but tightly built tannins. Seems a shade lighter compared with the 2015 Ornato. A little more elegant a little less powerful and more immediate. Fresh raspberry and cherry finish with real bite." Jancis Robinson

      "Aromas of rose petal, underbrush, crushed botanical herb and woodland berry mingle with a whiff of hazelnut. On the linear, precise palate, tight fine-grained tannins accompany sour cherry, blood orange, licorice and coffee bean." Wine Enthusiast

      "This fine site in Serralunga is elevated at 380 metres, which may explain the wine's finesse. Very ripe sour cherries dominate the nose, which is perfumed and lifted, with a touch of vanilla beneath the soaring fruit. It's taut and sleek, with high acidity but no greenness. The tannins are well integrated, so the texture is polished. It's still tight and undoubtedly complex, with hints of tobacco and coffee. The balance is impeccable and this will go the distance. Although it may be accessible young, this will develop more nuances with further ageing. Long minty finish." Decanter

      "With fruit from Serralunga d'Alba, the Pio Cesare 2016 Barolo Ornato offers a stunning presentation in this classic vintage. The bouquet shows small berry fruits and cassis, all framed by crushed stone, forest floor, blue flower and candied orange skin. There is a dusty mineral note to this wine as well, with terrific intensity on both the nose and the palate. The Ornato kicks in with finely integrated tannins and acidity that holds all those fruit flavors high and tall. What we have here is a standout Barolo that is staunchly vertical, linear and upfront." Robert Parker

      "The blue fruit and freshness are impressive here. At the same time, there’s richness and focus with ripe fruit. Yet, it remains cool and bright. Superb center palate with great fruit and depth, but compact and focused. Needs three or four years to come together." James Suckling

    • Brunello di Montalcino "Poggio al Vento" Riserva DOCG 2013 (BIO) <br>6 Flaschen in Original-Holzkiste

      Brunello di Montalcino “Poggio al Vento” Riserva DOCG 2013 (BIO) · 6 Flaschen in Original-Holzkiste

      Zarte Granatreflexe beleben das klassische Rubin, im Bouquet verbinden sich Aromen reifer Kirschen mit Noten, die an Tabak und Heilkräuter erinnern, zu einer komplexen Harmonie. Der Geschmack, von makellosem feinen Tannin durchzogen, gewinnt im Verlauf eine geradezu sensationelle Fülle und wird dabei von einer guten Säurekomponente getragen. Eine Riserva wie aus dem Bilderbuch. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Funkelndes, intensives Granatrot. Sehr einladende und intensive Nase nach Preiselbeeren und Granatapfel, etwas Safran, saftige, frische Kirsche. Kerniges, sehr gut platziertes Tannin am Gaumen, feiner süßer Schmelz, hallt lange nach, sehr saftig, hat Potenzial für viele Jahre." Falstaff

      "This shows ripeness and richness of fruit. It’s full-bodied with juicy fruit and a savory finish. Verges on jammy, yet there’s tension and freshness with orange-peel and floral undertones." James Suckling

      "Broad shouldered and firmly structured with expressive aromas and flavors of red cherry, flint, blackberry reduction and underbrush. Finishes very long and saline; strikes me as one of the more refined, lightweight versions of Poggio al Vento in years. Lovely wine, and commendably, very much in style of the vintage. I expect this to improve considerably in the years to come: well done." Vinous

      "Aromas of underbrush, wild berry, leather, camphor and Mediterranean herb waft out of the glass. The full-bodied palate is still young and primary but shows great aging potential, delivering juicy red cherry, pomegranate, licorice and tobacco set against firm tannins while bright acidity keeps it balanced." Wine Enthusiast

      "The 2013 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Poggio al Vento sets this venerable Riserva program squarely back on track thanks to its balanced intensity and classic lines. Like in the other Sangiovese-based wines from this historic Montalcino estate, this wine is distinguished by those estate-specific savory and sanguine notes that recall rusty nail or iron, all followed by balsam herb, powdered licorice and even a touch of eucalyptus oil. The wine's texture is medium in weight and ultimately this expression is more buoyant in mouthfeel than you might initially expect of a wine that has aged for this long." Robert Parker

    • Brunello di Montalcino "Rennina" DOCG 2013 <br>6 Flaschen in Original-Holzkiste

      Brunello di Montalcino “Rennina” DOCG 2013 · 6 Flaschen in Original-Holzkiste

      Ein Modernist, wie er im Buche steht. Ausgewogen und impressiv zugleich. Kräftige Duft- und Geschmacksaromen von Veilchen, schwarzen Kirschen, Tabak und Menthol. Die Tannine sind fest und doch wunderschön integriert. Rennina ist ein komplexer, mittelgewichtiger Wein, was großen positiven Einfluss auf sein Alterungspotenzial hat und seine Erfolgsgeschichte ausmacht. SUPERIORE.DE

      "The 2013 Brunello di Montalcino Rennina is a dark, plush and succulent red wine with seamless overall integration. Angelo Gaja makes his wines with broad brush strokes that form shapes of perfect harmony and grandeur. He seems less interested in the minutiae, much in the same way an impressionist painter creates a portrait without consideration for the gritty details of reality. Continuing with my art metaphor, I'll venture to say that this is a big-picture wine that embraces bold fruit, oak spice, acidity and tannin in one overwhelming and warm embrace. I usually score the Sugarille a point or two higher, but this year the Rennina won my heart." Robert Parker

      "Aromas of orange peel, dark fruit and bark. Dried mushroom, too. Full body and extremely polished and velvety tannins that are plush but compacted. Delicious finish." James Suckling

      "Deep ruby. Lots of oak and lively, concentrated cherry on the nose. Oak has quite a big impact but there is such a lot of fruit that it integrates. The finish has amazing length and muscular grip, but it could do with much less oak, because it plays up on the finish." Jancis Robinson

      "This perfumed Brunello offers enticing scents of pressed violet, rose, talcum powder, wild berry, eucalyptus and a whiff of exotic spice. On the structured palate, firm fine-grained tannins provide support for dried black cherry, licorice, vanilla and a hint of espresso." Wine Enthusiast

      "This is fragrant, offering cherry, leather, floral and spice notes. On the palate, this remains fresh, with persistent flavors and fine harmony. Dusty tannins pull everything together on the finish. There's plenty of energy here." Wine Spectator

      Brunello di Montalcino “Podernovi” DOCG 2015 · 6 Flaschen in Original-Holzkiste

      Einer der besten Jahrgänge der letzten zwanzig Jahre und San Polos erster Einzellagen-Brunello. Rubinrote Farbe, nicht zu tief, mit leichten granatroten Reflexen. In der Nase blumige Aromen von Veilchen, Alpenveilchen und Jasmin, Noten von frischen Früchten und Gewürznoten. Im Mund rund, voller Harmonie und mit einer guten Struktur und Säure sowie sehr weichen Tanninen, die insgesamt eine ausgezeichnete Persistenz zeigen. Ein Wein schier endloser Länge, Tiefe und mit ausgeprägtem Charakter, der in Erinnerung bleibt. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Intensives, funkelndes Rubin mit Granatrand. Sehr dichte und einladende Nase, Noten nach reifen Zwetschken, Lakritze und getrockneten Steinpilzen. Füllt den Gaumen satt aus, zeigt dabei aber nicht nur Fülle, sondern auch viel Saft und Eleganz, ein sehr geschliffener, eleganter Brunello, langer Nachhall." Falstaff

      "Firmly structured, this opens with aromas of underbrush, exotic spice and whiffs of eucalyptus oil. The firm palate evokes black-cherry extract, orange zest, licorice and tobacco set against assertive, close-grained tannins that leave a rather austere, drying finish. Give it time to fully unwind." Wine Enthusiast

      "San Polo's 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Podernovi is dark and earthy, with notes of moist soil, savory herbs, and minerals that wafting up from the glass. Mineral-encased ripe red fruits, propelled by vibrant acids with sweet spices and a hint of youthful tannin develop with air. The finish is long and buzzing with zesty acids and spice, along with a coating of fine tannin that tugs at the cheek. There’s a great blending of earth and fruit that makes the Podernovi quite attractive, yet a few years in the cellar should yield an even more balanced wine." Vinous

      "The Poggio San Polo 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Podernovi offers great density and textural richness. I would say that this wine is most characterized by the quality of the mouthfeel that wraps smoothly and thickly over the palate. Dark cherry, tobacco, earth, plum and dark fruit add intensity and flavorful substance. The wine's full-bodied approach would match grilled meats or roasts." Robert Parker

      "Lush and fruity, featuring plum, cherry, strawberry and iron aromas and flavors. Bright acidity and dense tannins form the structure as this plays out on the long finish. The excellent youthful balance shows promise for the future." Wine Spectator

      "A dense and layered red with plum, cherry and chocolate character. Full body. Dense and ripe tannins and a long and flavorful finish. Shows layers of fruit and rich tannins. New and exciting wine from here. Try after 2022." James Suckling

    • Barolo Ravera DOCG 2011 <br>6 Flaschen in Original-Holzkiste

      Barolo Ravera DOCG 2011 · 6 Flaschen in Original-Holzkiste

      Barolo Ravera repräsentiert den traditionelleren Stil der Weinbereitung bei Vietti. Graphit- und Eisenaromen, dazu fruchtig süße Noten von Kirsche und Himbeere, Leder und schwarzer Tee. Intensive Frucht mit komplexer Struktur und schön verwobenem Tannin. Leistungsstark und außergewöhnlich stilvoll. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Leuchtendes, intensives Rubin-Granat. Fein angelegte Nase mit Noten nach Himbeere und dunklen Rosen, im Hintergrund nach Feuerstein und Trüffeln. Am Gaumen sehr präsent, zeigt viel Frucht, zugleich feinmaschiges, dichtes Tannin, das noch etwas Lagerung verträgt, hat sehr gutes Potenzial, langer Nachhall." Falstaff

      "The 2011 Barolo Ravera opens to a pretty garnet color and dark ruby luminosity. The wine delivers tight concentration and a fine texture that adheres closely to the palate. Blackberry, cassis, spice, leather and tobacco emerge from the glass. Barolo Ravera also offers an earthy tone of white truffle or porcino mushroom. Soft oak density and thick fruit extract give the wine beautiful, full-bodied appeal. Give it ten more years of cellar aging to lose the baby fat." Robert Parker

      "The 2011 Barolo Ravera is once again the most vibrant and nuanced of the Vietti Barolos. Freshly cut flowers, crushed rocks, mint and bright red stone fruits are all shaped by a very classic sense of mineral-inflected drive that is such a Ravera signature. The 2011 is a more than worthy follow up to the epic 2010. It's great to see this high-altitude district in Novello finally getting its due." VINOUS

      "Cherry and plum flavors permeate this rich, powerful red. Accented by menthol and leather, this is balanced and fresh, with a lingering aftertaste of mineral and tobacco." Wine Spectator

      "Engaging scents of wild berry, rose petal, aromatic herb and spice lead the nose. The full-bodied palate slowly reveals red cherry, anise, black pepper, clove and tobacco framed in assertive tannins and bright acidity. Give this time to fully open and develop." Wine Enthusiast

    • Barolo "Ascheri" DOCG 2016 <br>6 Flaschen in Original-Holzkiste

      Barolo “Ascheri” DOCG 2016 · 6 Flaschen in Original-Holzkiste

      Matteo beschreibt ihn als einen Wein, der ebenso viel mit dem Ort zu tun hat wie mit seinen familiären Wurzeln: Zufällig ist sein Nachname Ascheri auch die offizielle Bezeichnung des in der Gemeinde La Morra gelegenen Weinbergs. Für diesen Topwein des Hauses gilt wie auch für den Coste & Bricco: Barolo Ascheri wird nur in den besten Jahren produziert.

      Sein Bouquet und auch der vielschichtige Geschmack lassen ihn als den wohl vollständigsten Wein des Hauses erkennen. Wunderbar in Präzision und Struktur besitzt dieser Barolo in diesem Top-Jahrgang den wohl höchsten Wiedererkennungswert und repräsentiert zugleich auf beeindruckende Art und Weise die Handschrift des Hauses. SUPERIORE.DE

      "New leather, camphor, wild berry and fragrant blue-flower aromas mingle together on this structured red. It's full bodied and dense, delivering succulent morello cherry, crushed raspberry licorice and tobacco framed in firm, fine-grained tannins. You'll also detect the warmth of evident alcohol, but thanks to the concentrated fruit, it doesn't dominate." Wine Enthusiast

      "The Ascheri 2016 Barolo Ascheri is a beautiful wine that reveals a broad range of classic Nebbiolo aromas. The wine's bouquet is stirring and deep with cleverly contained intensity. As I mentioned before, the Ascheri winemaking process sees a short 16-day fermentation, at 30 degrees Celsius in the case of this wine. As a result, the aromas are clear, strong and direct. You could apply any number of descriptors to describe the bouquet: dried cherry fruit, rose, pressed violets, crushed stone, red clay and autumnal leaf. The wine is well supported at the back by firm tannins that come thanks to this classic, cellar-worthy vintage." Robert Parker

      Komplexer und vielschichtiger Klassiker vom Altmeister des Nebbiolo aus dem Piemont. In der Nase Zedernholz, Pflaume, rote Früchte, Unterholz und etwas Rosenduft. Ausgewogener, würziger Geschmack, die Tannine fest und das Finish präzise und lang. Dieses muskulöse Monument von einem Rotwein braucht unbedingt noch einige Jahre Flaschenreife, mit etwas Geduld wird er sich in pure Eleganz verwandeln! SUPERIORE.DE

      "Fragrant and refined, this opens with heady scents of wild berry, rose petal, camphor and underbrush. Elegantly structured, the polished palate offers ripe Marasca cherry, blood orange and star anise framed in taut, fine-grained tannins." Wine Enthusiast

      "The Gaja 2017 Barbaresco is nuanced and delicate with ever-expanding aromatic intensity that amply fills the balloon of your glass. The wine takes a little while to open fully, and it slowly releases forest berry, powdered licorice, toasted aniseed, spearmint, dried lavender and rosemary essence to build a lasting bouquet. The mouthfeel is streamlined and almost steely, with an extremely linear approach that adds to its length and persistency. The tannins are tucked into the wine's delicate fiber, but you do feel the extra textural firmness of the hot vintage nonetheless. As we have seen in past vintages, more definition is added by a pretty mineral note that is a common thread in these wines from Gaja." Robert Parker

      "Glorious aromas of flowers, crushed berries, strawberries and dried herbs. Some tea. Full-bodied and layered with a wonderfully curated, polished tannin structure and backbone. Give it three or four years to soften. Try after 2023." James Suckling

      Barolo “Sperss” DOCG 2016 · MAGNUM in Original-Holzkiste

      Glänzendes, sattes Rubin mit leichtem Granatschimmer. Tolle und einprägsame Nase, ungeheuer dicht, duftet nach Haselnüssen, Leder und reifen Waldhimbeeren. Trumpft am Gaumen toll auf, viel kompaktes, dichtmaschiges Tannin, ummantelt von süßem Schmelz, vielschichtig und dicht, baut sich lange auf, im Nachhall nach Zwetschgen und Lakritze. Großartig! SUPERIORE.DE

      "Funkelndes, intensives Granatrot. Beeindruckende Nase, geradezu klassisch, viel reife Frucht, Waldhimbeere, Zwetschge und Rosenblätter, dahinter schwarze Trüffel. Zeigt sich am Gaumen sehr geradlinig und geschliffen, öffnet sich mit feinmaschigem Tannin in vielen Schichten, zeigt im vorderen Bereich feine Frucht, im Finale satter Tiefgang." Falstaff

      "Gaja's Barolo Sperss is unbelievably polished in 2016. Fragrant, medium in body and silky for a Serralunga Barolo, Sperss speaks to finesse more than anything else. The dark, brooding qualities that are such signatures emerge with time in the glass, and yet the 2016 remains light on its feet and incredibly nuanced. While the 2015 showed some linkage to the past, the 2016 really appears to represent a big stylistic shift. What a gorgeous wine it is." Vinous

      "Very floral and refined with dried cherry, strawberry, smoke and spice. Some tile and toffee. Fascinating aromas. Full-bodied and very tight with a solid core of polished tannins that are so creamy and beautiful. Tight and reserved with really wonderful length and focus." James Suckling

      "Rose, iris, red berry and camphor mingle with a whiff of dark spice on this gorgeous, radiant red. Firmly structured but also boasting extraordinary finesse, the chiseled palate delivers ripe morello cherry, crushed raspberry, star anise and tobacco set against a backbone of taut fine-grained tannins. Vibrant acidity keeps it well balanced and energized." Wine Enthusiast

      "The golden touch, that proverbial Gaja magic, is taken to a whole new level in the 2016 Barolo Sperss. Angelo Gaja has taught his children to follow their own path, and now that the generational switch is well underway at the family estate, we can see that Gaia, Rossana and Giovanni have done him proud. Very proud. This stunning expression from the 2016 vintage represents quite a few celebratory milestones. Starting with appearance, the wine is luminous and bright with shiny ruby and garnet gemstone. Its aromatic reach is three-dimensional with width, height and depth. Delicate berry tones cede to pressed lilac, anise, sandalwood and cardamom spice. I double decanted and left the bottle open for a few hours before my tasting. The results are tight and gentle, and the wine shows beautiful vertical lift and intensity. To achieve this much power without the excess fruit weight is really quite an accomplishment. This is the magic of Nebbiolo, and the magic of Gaja." Robert Parker

      “Sassicaia” Bolgheri Sassicaia DOC 2017 · Doppel-Magnum in Original-Holzkiste

      Enorm vielschichtig im Bouquet: Wir entdecken Cassis, Holunderbeeren, Herzkirschen und florale sowie mineralisch-erdige Noten. Im Mund fest, präzise und dennoch höchst elegant und balsamisch, mit sehr viel Saftigkeit und einem hochfeinen Tannin ausgestattet, welches bereits in seinen jungen Jahren unwiderstehlich ist. Wir haben selten einen Wein genossen, der so dicht und voll ist und zugleich über eine Balance verführt, die ihn einzigartig macht. Weitere Flaschenreife wird unweigerlich belohnt, wenngleich eine nochmalige Steigerung kaum vorstellbar scheint. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Mit diesem Wein begann vor mehr als 50 Jahren der Erfolgszug internationaler Rebsorten in Bolgheri: Die Familie Incisa della Rocchetta erkannte das Potenzial der Bordelaiser Rebsorten und schuf diesen Monolithen der italienischen Weinkultur. Bis heute wird er nahezu unverändert und vorwiegend aus Cabernet Franc produziert: einnehmende Nase nach frischem Steinobst, Wacholder und Tabak; der Auftakt geschliffen, die Gerbstoffe feinkörnig und frisch, belebende Säure, überaus komplexes Finale auf Noten von roten Früchte und Gewürzen. Stets eine der elegantesten Interpretationen des Terroirs." Vinum

      "The 2017 Sassicaia is a fascinating wine that symbolizes a never-ending tug-of-war between vintner and vintage. The question is who comes out on top? In this case, my money is on the vintner. The 2017 vintage, characterized by scorching heat and drought across much of Italy, was not an easy one. This Sassicaia represents 83% Cabernet Sauvignon and 17% Cabernet Franc, with most of the fruit coming from the Tenuta's historic vineyards Castiglioncello, Quercione and Doccino. These plots are all located on the back hill of Bolgheri at slightly higher elevations where they enjoy cooler nighttime temperatures. Old vines also have a deeper root system that is key to braving dry and hot summers. You can absolutely taste those choices here thanks to the wine's aromatic profile that offers more variety-driven green highlights of wild berry, forest floor and bramble than I would have expected. With time, as the wine takes on more air in the glass, you get a hint of summer plum or cherry cough drop, and this, to my surprise, is the only subtle reminder of the hot vintage encountered. I found the aromas here to be authentically "Tuscan" in character, more so than other vintages, with balsamic and Mediterranean elements that borrow directly from the Sangiovese playbook. The decision to use more neutral oak favors the reduction of oxygen and softens the tannic profile. Although the wine does end with a hint of bitterness, it took on noticeably more volume and soft richness the longer I kept my sample in the glass." Robert Parker

      "A taut, densely wrought red, with black currant, black cherry, iron, wild herb and spice flavors matched to the elegant frame and restrained character. Balanced and long, this has a distinctly Old World feel and looks set to unravel its complex facets slowly." Wine Spectator

      "The 2017 Sassicaia is dark, sensual and rich, which is a good thing, as the tannins - the result of a warm, dry year in which phenolic ripening was difficult to fully reach - are also quite powerful. I tasted the 2017 from an approximate blend from barrel, where the wines are still aging in separate lots. It will be interesting to see where things end up once the wine is in bottle." Vinous

      "The balance and beauty to this is impressive, offering sweet, ripe currants and flowers with some crushed-stone and dry-earth undertones. Full-bodied with soft, polished tannins and a long, creamy-textured finish. It’s polished, yet concentrated. Better after 2022, but already very seductive." James Suckling

      "Aromas of exotic spice, baked plum and French oak mingle with camphor and blue flower on the nose. This boasts extraordinary elegance and freshness despite the hot vintage, delivering flavors of juicy Marasca cherry, spiced blueberry, tobacco and licorice. Velvety, fine-grained tannins provide support while coffee and crushed mint linger on the finish." Wine Enthusiast
