Le Grappin Savigny Les Beaune Rouge 2011Red fruits of cranberry and raspberry, lead into a pure, transparent and linear attack. Classic Savigny sappy body. Tannins are fine and silky with a fresh and persistent finish. 90% destemmed, 10% whole cluster fruit in a wooden cuve for 21 days before being run off into an old wooden basket press. 16% new oak, 11 months in barrels made by Tonnellerie's Chassin & Remond.
Sartarelli Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi Classico Superiore Balciana 2010Beautiful and intense straw yellow color with nuances of golden yellow. Intense on the nose with hints of ripe fruits, tropical and citrus fruits, touches of spice, liquorice root, almonds and honey. It is strong on the palate but at the same time fresh and flavorful with a persistent taste and smell. It is full-bodied with an intense harmoniously balanced flavor, and despite the high alcoholic content, it is extremely agreeable to the palate.
Rocca di Montegrossi Geremia 2011Intense ruby, with violet nail, and with complex aromas that bring to mind sour cherries, currants and other wild berry fruit, mingled with licorice and vanilla. The 2011 Geremia, the estate's Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot blend, offers tons of energy to balance its dark, inky fruit. Lavender, menthol, melted road tar, sage, crème de cassis and grilled herbs are some of the many signatures. The ripeness and raciness of the year come through in spades, yet there is an element of pulsating intensity in the glass that plays off the more overt elements nicely. This is another superb showing from Rocca di Montegrossi. 95 Pts. Vinous M
