93/100 Punkte Robert Parker, May 2019 Tenuta le Colonne is an estate I have never visited, but I feel like I have because I spent a good amount of time over by their neighbors during my last trip to Bolgheri. This property and Tenuta Argentiera look onto each other and are absolutely blessed by some of the most magnificent positioning possible along the Tuscan Coast. The vineyard that produces the 2015 Bolgheri Superiore spans from the seashore at five meters above sea level to 150 meters. This is a darkly concentrated wine with rich aromas of blackberry, ripe current, spice and tobacco. This is a structured, firm wine that sits squarely on the palate.
95/100 Punkte James Suckling, September 2018 The aromas of blueberries and black licorice are impressive with aniseed undertones. Tar, too. Full-bodied, dense and powerful with a chewy tannin structure and a long, flavorful finish. Very structured. A new wine from the region to seek out. Try it in 2020.
94/100 Punkte Falstaff, Juni 2020 Pastellfarben, schon in der Farbe ausgesprochen chic! Feinfruchtig im Duft, Himbeere, Süßkirsche. Wunderbar präzise in der Frucht und pfeilgerade in der Gaumenstruktur, feinnervig, frisch, im Alkohol leicht und dennoch im Extrakt und in der Länge weit überdurchschnittlich. Erstklassiges Lesegut, sensibles Winemaking. Ein großes Vergnügen.
93/100 Punkte James Suckling November 2019 Good focus and intensity to the nose here, folding in licorice, dried herbs, black pepper and Chinese spices. Full body, plenty of density and richness, but a fine line of acidity and freshness. Structured and quite long on the finish. Drink now.
91/100 Punkte Robert Parker, August 2018 The 2016 La Misión shows much fresher, more vibrant and alive, with much better harmony. It has depth and some chalky austerity on the palate, with varietal notes and a dry finish.
90/100 Punkte Robert Parker Dec 2019 The organic 2018 Nosso wears the subtitle "Verdejo Ecologico Natural" and had no added sulfites. It has some cereal-like aromas, with a lactic hint, not very varietal, but clean and not showing any deviations. The palate is balanced, with good freshness and a marked bitter finish#to me, that's the signature of Verdejo.
92/100 Punkte James Suckling September 2017 Quite a big, rich wine, but with serious elegance and a delicate spiciness that make it hard to resist. There's nothing superficial about the long, complex finish. Drink now.
92/100 Punkte James Suckling September 2017 A serious wine with a Reine Claude aroma and a big, earthy palate. A crisp finish that has some complexity. Still a little tight. This will be even more impressive from 2018.
94/100 Punkte Robert Parker Apr 2019 The red Callet 2017 Sòtil, which means roof in Mallorquin, wants to show lightness and freshness, a more ethereal wine, if you want the opposite of their Tripsol. The grapes are selected from vines in Felanitx on red soils and part from the 67-year-old d#Es Pou de Sa Carrera vineyard in Porreres. 2017 was an unusually warm and early harvest (they started on the 9th of August, their earliest ever). The mostly destemmed and uncrushed grapes with 10% full clusters fermented in open-top 500-liter oak barrels and had a 20-day maceration. The wine matured in a combination of barriques, amphorae and stainless steel tanks. The wine has moderate alcohol (12%), a pale bright ruby color and an intoxicating nose of flowers and herbs#violets, lilies, rockrose, thyme and all things Mediterranean. There is something wild and authentic about it. The palate is superb; it has great finesse with filigree and is nicely textured with very fine tannins, great purity
92/100 Punkte Robert Parker April 2019 The 2017 Trispol is from a much warmer and earlier harvest, and despite that, the wine feels fresher and has better integrated oak. It's quite pure and clean, with bright berry aromas, elegant and balanced. The palate is harmonious and has very tasty flavors, fine tannins and an almost salty finish. This is more elegant and more refined than the 2016 I tasted next to it. It feels more precise and vertical: they extracted less and did a softer vinification. This is still young and won't be released until the summer of 2019.
92/100 Punkte James Suckling September 2017 While many Rheinhessen pinot blancs live entirely from the fruit aromas and lively acidity, this has some Chablis-like chalky character and creaminess at the powerful finish. Best from 2018.
