Apr. 29, 2012 Ceretto Vignaioli di Santo Stefano Moscato d’Asti 2010

Add to your wine log.Send to phone.click here to see availability and buying options
Tasting Notes
& Comments

Many wineries in Piedmont produce Moscato d'Asti, few dedicate themselves to it in the way that Vignaioli di Santo Stefano do though. Producing exclusively Moscato, Vignaioli di Santo Stefano can surely be considered experts in Moscato. The evidence provided by this tasting certainly suggests this to be true. Fresh and fruity. A great example of the style. 85pts. - 04/29/2012

Apr. 28, 2012 Pra Amarone della Valpolicella DOC 2007

Massively deep and concentrated this 2007 Pra Amarone is a monster of a wine. Rich and decadently textured, this can only achieve a 90+ score. 92pts

Apr. 27, 2012 Pra “Morandina” Valpolicella Superiore Ripasso DOC 2009

Tasting Notes
& Comments

Another highly impressive wine from Graziano Pra. This "ripasso" could easily be mistaken for Amarone at a blind tasting, all grapes are dried for this wine (even for the "basic" Valpolicella component), before the basic Valpolicella is passed over a new batch of dried grapes too. Rich and deep. 90pts. - 04/27/2012

Apr. 26, 2012 Prà “Morandina” Valpolicella Superiore DOC 2010

Tasting Notes
& Comments

Despite this only being the fourth vintage of releasing red wine at the Pr�inery, on the evidence of this wine Graziano Pr�as been able to carry across his customary degree of excellence from his outstounding range of (white) Soave to his range of (red) Valpolicella. Intense and ripe. 87 pts. - 04/26/2012

This 2009 Pr�Staforte� Soave Classico is a superb Soave from Graziano Pr�The rarest wine to be released from this estate, this is completely unrecognisable as a Soave next to the bland offerings that typically represent this zone of production. 92pts. - 04/25/2012

Graziano Pr�as dedicated 40 years of his life to making top quality Soave and wines such as this (his "entry level") Soave adequately explain the admiration in which he is held. 90pts.

A fantastic Malbec from Argentina's far north. Here altitude and long periods of direct sun allow for extreme concentration and richness. Named after one of the founders of Michel Torino - Michel David. 88pts. - 04/20/2012

Apr. 17, 2012 Domaine Faiveley Meursault “Joseph Faiveley” 2009

Tasting Notes
& Comments

Faiveley is one of the best known producers in Burgundy and this 2009 Domaine Faiveley Meursault �Joseph Faiveley� really shows why. Despite a long future ahead of this wine, great complexity is already seen. A benchmark for the appelation. 92 pts. - 04/17/2012

An "entry level" wine but you would never guess - this is smooth, rich and concentrated with just the right level of tannin influence. 88pts - 04/14/2012


Apr. 13, 2012 Bodega Raffy “Cuvée Terroir” Malbec Rosé 2011

Tasting Notes
& Comments


A top quality wine drawn from stunning sites in Mendoza, Argentina. Made using the rarer "saign� process, fermenting must is drawn off from red wine production to develop into this dry and richly flavoured wine. Nuanced and long, this is a classy wine indeed. 89 pts. - 04/13/2012


Apr. 10, 2012 Serego Alighieri Valpolicella dell’Anniversario DOC 2008

Tasting Notes
& Comments

This 2008 Serego Alighieri Valpolicella dell�Anniversario DOC is a superb Valpolicella. Over-ripe red cherry fruit and dried fruit notes abound within a full and civilised palate. Nuanced to the point of being profound, this is great value too. 91pts - 04/10/2012

Apr. 8, 2012 Domaine Berthelemot Meursault “Les Tillets” 2010

Tasting Notes
& Comments

This is exemplary Meursault from this up-and-coming producer. Carving it's own identity with a clear minerality and slightly higher acidity this Meursault �Les Tillets� seems destined to age well too. 90 points. - 04/08/2012

Apr. 7, 2012 Masi “Campofiorin” Rosso del Veronese IGT 2008

Add to your wine log.Send to phone.click here to see availability and buying options
Tasting Notes
& Comments

Masi is widely believed to have been the winery that "re-discovered" the "ripasso" process for Valpolicella in the mid-1960s and ever since then has certainly made the process its own. This "Campofiorin" is intense, deep and shows just enough Amarone character without ever becoming too structured or astringent. An excellent example of the style 87 points. - 04/07/2012
