2016 France Bordeaux
91 Points

This certainly has the signature of its parent, with careful saffron spicing running through the citrus body, given lift by attractive points of lime arranged through the palate. This is a white wine for roast chicken, extremely welcoming but could be more tense. A lovely, lightly-toasted golden colour. Drinking window 2018 - 2030 - J.A.

Azisa Sicilia DOC

2015 Italy Sicily
90 Points

Vivid straw-yellow. Expressive aromas of lemon juice, yellow peach and spearmint, complicated by balsamic nuances. At once sweet and focused, with no shortage of energy to the dense stone fruit, balsamic and minty flavors. Finishes big and bold, delivering outstanding juiciness and length. Lovely wine of sneaky complexity. A blend of Grillo and Cataratto.

Chianti Classico

2014 Italy Tuscany
92 Points

Castello di Verrazzano's The 2014 Chianti Classico is gorgeous. Beautifully perfumed and deep on the palate, with a classic, midweight sense of structure, the 2014 hits all the right notes. Succulent red cherry fruit, pipe tobacco, leather, smoke and cedar infuse this creamy, super-expressive Chianti Classico from Verrazzano.

"Silver Label" Barbaresco DOCG

2007 Italy Piedmont
93 Points

A ripe, intense version, with plum, black cherry, tar, roasted almond, leather and soy aromas and flavors, backed by muscular tannins. Balsamic notes of wild rosemary and juniper add interest. Shows a hint of oxidation, yet this remains fresh and long. A singular Barolo. Still youthful, with a long life ahead. Drink now through 2033.

From one of Trento's leading wineries, this salmon-colored wine made from Pinot Nero and Chardonnay opens with aromas of rose, red berry and a whiff of nut paste. The palate displays more Pinot Nero, with wild cherry, strawberry and graphite flavors alongside a vibrant perlage and brisk acidity.
