    The 2015 Langenlois Steinmassl 1ÖTW has a deep citrus color and opens with an impressively aromatic spicy and flinty-mineral bouquet with ripe and concentrated stone fruit aromas along with aromas of small and healthy, thick-skinned Riesling berries. Round and elegant on the palate, this full-bodied Riesling is very intense and fruity but well structured and perfectly balanced. It is pure and salty, carried to a long and tense finish by its great ripeness, concentration, vibrant acidity, fine tannins and persistent minerality. A terrific Steinmassl!

    The 2016 Ried Kellerberg Riesling Smaragd is very deep, complex and extremely flinty with ripe fruit and crushed stone aromas. This Kellerberg takes you into a quarry and is reminiscent of tons of flint stones! The stone fruit flavors are ripe and concentrated but stay in the background. On the palate this is a silky, full-bodied, pure and elegant Riesling with great power, complexity and serious, very persistent structure with lingering fruit. This is a big, monstrous Kellerberg that needs years to gain finesse. But yes, it is very promising.

    Beautifully concenrated with apricot perfume, the 2013 Riesling Smaragd Loibner Loibenberg is a rich, full-bodied and enervating fresh and salty Smaragd of remarkable elegance and purity. Very well-balanced and long on the palate, this tension-filled Riesling elixir has a persistent salinity and steely acidity that gives it excellent aging potential.

    The 2015 Riesling Smaragd Loibner Steinertal offers a very coolish and refreshing bouquet of ripe white fruits. Round, dense and elegant on the palate this is a full-bodied, concentrated, grippy and firmly structured Riesling with a characterizing phenolic grip. Still shy, this wine needs a few years to tell its story.

    93-94/100 Punkte Vinous Feb 2017
    Last tasted in June 2016 from tank (after it had spent some time in cask), this opens with a heady display of ripe white peach and muskmelon, but also suggestions of fresh lime that then return on the palate to convey an exhilarating sense of animation, tension and refreshment despite the wine#s textural richness and generous ripeness. Stony and ashen notes, along with piquant lime peel, lend intrigue and a slightly austere note to the strikingly gripping finish, while suggestions of salt-crusted toasted shrimp shell prompt uncontrollable salivation.

    Warm and intense on the nose, ripe and concentrated white fruit aromas open the 2015 Riesling Smaragd Loibner Loibenberg, which is pure and citric on the nose and very inviting. Pure, fresh and piquant on the palate, this is rather coolish and stunningly lean and pure Loibenberg compared to the corresponding Grüner Veltliner. Lucas believes that Riesling has eventually stopped the ripening process during the vegetation period. This 2015 has grip and tension and a rather coolish character.

    The 2015 Riesling Smaragd Dürnsteiner Kellerberg displays a clear, ripe and concentrated bouquet of white fruits intermixed with crystalline flavors of the weathered gneiss and granite soils. Full-bodied, piquant and full of tension, this is a stunningly clear and refreshing Smaragds from a warm year. The alcohol is well hidden and the finish is very long and vibrantly fresh. There is a lot of mineral tension and music in this wine that should be cellared for another five or six years.

    95-96/100 Punkte Vinous Feb 2017
    A pungently smoky, incisive, savory mélange of sage, dark tobacco and black pepper is allied to ripe peach and garlanded with heliotrope in a head-turningly intense nose. That full range of elements reprises on a polished palate, whose textural caress and sweet sense of ripeness are combined with welcome, tangy, chewy counterpoint of peach skin and a refreshingly juicy squirt of fresh lime. The finish offers a mouthwateringly prolonged, kaleidoscopic interaction of fruity, savory and smoky elements plenty rich, yet with rare cut and animation for its vintage.

    The 2016 Ried Loibenberg Riesling Smaragd is stunningly precise, cool and fresh on the nose where mango, passion fruit and yellow nectarine flavors are displayed. On the palate, this is a full-bodied, piquant and concentrated Riesling with a tight structure, lovely grip and tension from healthy, crisp skins. This is a great Loibenberg that just needs 5-7 years to shine. Tasted as a sample in July 2017.

    Welcome to the riesling desert island! Super-ripe with a wealth of orange, a hint of mango aromas and a lot of power. Stunning freshness at the long, full finish. Better from 2018, but there's no hurry to drink this.

    The 2017 Dürnsteiner Riesling Smaragd (formerly Oberhauser) is from the first picking in the terraces as well as from the Trum and Oberhauser (today Klostersatz). Fermented in stainless steel and bottled in April, the wine shows a fine and discreet, herbal/floral-scented apricot nose that leads to a racy-piquant, light and crispy palate with enormous purity and freshness. Grown on gravelly soils in the plains, this is a stunning, vital and crunchy Smaragd with a long, intense and purely mineral finish that is full of tension. Tasted in Oberloiben/Wachau, September 2018.

    From steep, southeast-facing terraces with weathered gneiss soils, the 2017 Ried Höhereck Riesling Smaragd is concentrated, fresh and piquant on the nose, displaying ripe white fruit aromas but also some greenish fruits. Dense and piquant on the palate, this elegant, tightly woven Riesling has remarkable phenolic grip, freshness and a stimulating astringency on the salty finish. Stunningly fresh given this steep and warm terraced vineyard. Tasted in Unterloiben, Wachau, September 2018.

    The 2017 Ried Loibenberg Riesling Smaragd is from the eastern part of the cru where the soil is very poor and the microclimate significantly cooler than in the central part of the famous cru. The nose of the 2017 is clear and crunchy but intense and concentrated with its ripe white, refreshing fruit aromas. Dense and concentrated on the palate, this is a full-bloodied, tightly woven and very elegant Loibenberg Riesling with great grip, mineral tension and piquant lemon fruit flavors. Highly stimulating on the intense, lovely, astringent finish with yellow fruit and floral flavors on the long, aromatic aftertaste. Tasted in Unterloiben, Wachau, September 2018.

    From the cooler, east/southeast-facing part of the cru, the 2017 Dürnsteiner Riesling Ried Kellerberg Smaragd displays a clear and floral bouquet with very fine flavors of crushed stones. Clear and elegant on the palate, with crunchy stone aromas, a good salinity and mineral freshness, this is a pretty pure and racy Kellerberg that needs time. It's still pretty astringent but highly promising. A classic! Tasted in Unterloiben/Wachau, September 2018.

    Picked between October 5 and 31, the 2018 Ried Singerriedel Riesling Smaragd is clear, deep, pure, precise and flinty on the concentrated and piquant apricot nose with aromas of broken gneiss. Lush and round on the palate, this is a very elegant and balanced Singerriedel with immensely fine and juicy fruit, very fine tannins and great finesse. The acidity is ripe and refined and perfectly integrated and delivers persistent and stimulating salinity. A gorgeous Riesling and perhaps the finest 2018 I tasted in Austria last year.

    The 2018 Ried Loibenberg Riesling Smaragd is clear, ripe and elegant on the nose, with ripe and lush apricot, mango and very fine flinty aromas. On the palate, this is a ripe, round and charming Riesling with a full body, rich extract and mouth-filling palate. More compote than fresh and coolish fruit aromas here. Tasted at the domain in September 2019.

    From one of the coolest plots of the cru ("Rauheneck") that is already shadowed in the afternoon, the 2018 Riesling Smaragd Ried Loibenberg is beautifully clear and fine on the nose, with very elegant and ripe Riesling aromas intermixed with the coolish and flinty aromas reminiscent of the Steinertal. Concentrated, lush, piquant and elegant on the palate, this is a promising, very elegant and fleshy Riesling with a stimulating salty finish. Tasted at the domain in September 2019.

    The 2018 Riesling Smaragd Ried Steinertal is clear, coolish and flinty on the remarkable mineral, herbal and concentrated nose. Crystalline, refined and elegant on the palate, this is a great 2018 Riesling classic from the Wachau. The palate is lush and perfectly ripe but very elegant, fine and sustainable in its crystalline and crunchy structure and its salivating salinity. A fascinating wine.

    The 2016 Riede Ehrenfels 1ÖTW Senftenberger Riesling has an intense yellow color and opens with a sensationally complex and mineral nose that offers tons of crushed stones and just a hint of perfectly ripe fruit. Full-bodied, round, rich and finessed on the palate, this is a pure and elegant but highly expressive Ehrenfels Riesling. It has a concentrated but very fine, fresh and mineral-piquant finish with lots of salts, grip and tension. Probably one of the finest, purest and most elegant Rieslings produced along the Danube in 2016. However, I only tasted a (representative) sample in July 2017. Curious to follow this pure, finessed and mineral Riesling after it has been bottled this summer.

    The 2015 Langelois Seeberg 1ÖTW has an intense citrus color and perfectly ripe and concentrated stone fruit aromas intertwined with crystalline and floral scents. Lovely, complex and stimulating already on the nose! Full-bodied, rich and round on the palate, this is a very juicy though not bone-dry Riesling. It has a mouth-filling texture and reveals fine, crystalline acidity and delicate grip on the finish. Because of its sweetness I would not serve this promising Seeberg before 2025 when the sweetness will taste less prominent than today.

On the palate, this Heiligenstein is enormously finessed, racy-vital and elegant. It shows a certain lightness without losing complexity, intensity or length. The wine is firmly structured, but all seems filigreed and mineral here, with no charming sweetness, no creaminess, no compromises. It is a pure Heiligenstein, and the finish is salty, piquant and very compact. A highly promising dry Riesling and an impressive Heiligenstein. Tasted as a sample in late June 2017.

    The Hirsch 2012 Riesling Heiligenstein favors piquantly herbal and bittersweet flower-chomping in a manner reminiscent of its little brother Zobing village bottling. Transparency of apple and white peach not only to these floral and herbal elements but to stony, crystalline nuances is a striking feature on this Riesling-s admittedly spare and decidedly firm but juicy palate. Altogether metaphorically cooler and more restrained as well as less mouthwateringly savory in finish than its Gaisberg counterpart, this Heiligenstein should also prove very worth following through 2020 and become yet more rewarding along the way.

    Their vineyard-selection cuvée 2007 Reserva Particular currently in the market is from a great vintage in the region, especially for Xarello#even if this is a blend of 64% Macabeo and 36% Xarello, I think this has to be one of the finest vintages, at least in recent times, along with 2001 and 2004. This comes from three separate vineyards and is always a little riper, more developed, and in this vintage, it combines power with freshness, like in the best vintages. The 2007 vintage was dry, and Recaredo's vineyards yielded 33.5 hectoliters per hectare, when the appellation of origin allowed up to 88 hectoliters per hectare that year. The wine has 12% alcohol and an extremely low pH (2.96), which means very healthy acidity. The Xarello fermented in oak barrels and the Macabeo in stainless steel. The wine was put in bottle for the aging with yeasts in April 2008 and was disgorged nine years and nine months later (117 months). The long aging has

    The 2016 Tinto (Quinta do Vesúvio), the Estate red, is a blend of 56% Touriga Nacional, 40% Touriga Franca and a dollop of Tinta Amarela aged for 18 months in French oak (80% new). It comes in at 14% alcohol. If you're comparing the high end from Symington-related labels this issue, this is very different from the Chryseia (under Prats & Symington). Here, you get a more muscular and concentrated wine. Here, there is more of an edge and a need for cellaring. Packed with plums and black cherries, it also has a darker and much richer flavor profile#there's a relatively warm feel here#than Chryseia, less elegance but more intensity in terms of both structure and fruit. To me, this sumptuous red is the better wine with a higher upside potential, although it certainly has some things to prove in the cellar. Some six hours later, it was still a little aggressive but just packed with fruit and flavor. This needs a few years to come around. Let's s

    The 2015 Prazo de Roriz is a roughly equal blend of Touriga Franca, Touriga Nacional and Tinta Barroca, with small bits of Tinta Roriz and Tinta Amarela, aged for six months in used French oak. This is typically a good value. This might be my favorite in some time. There isn't a lot of concentration in the mid-palate and it isn't the type of wine you want to age for 20 years. It's not $50, either. It's a very nice bargain with many virtues. The fruit here is just gorgeous, vivid, pure and clean. The structure lifts it and delivers it beautifully to the palate. The texture is silky and the finish is just a bit tight. Overall, it is hard to lean up more on this since it doesn't have a lot of upside potential, but if you drink it over the next few years, you might like it even better than the score would suggest.

    The 2017 Prazo de Roriz is a blend of 35% Touriga Franca, 25% Touriga Nacional, 20% Tinta Roriz and 20% mixed grapes, all aged for six months in used French oak. It comes in at 14.2% alcohol. Seeming like just-crushed fruit, this is remarkably concentrated for the level, without being jammy. Expressive, fruit forward and still supported by good structure, this is a big, ripe and rather dramatic Prazo this year. The fruit does have a certain warmth to it. That doesn't mean heat, to be clear, but ripeness. It is not always the most lifted fruit on the finish. However, this certainly tastes great and has some sex appeal. The price is right for the big finish and flavor. At the moment, you might like it even better than the score suggests. It would be nice if it could develop a bit more finesse with a year in the cellar, but if you're looking for one to cellar, the producer's Post Scriptum (reviewed this issue as well) would be a better choice

    The 2015 Pouilly Fuisse Vers Cras comes from two hectares of 50-year-old vines that spends 12 months in cask and another four months in vat. It has a fresh and focused bouquet with subtle honeysuckle and beeswax aromas threaded through the citrus fruit. I appreciate the manner in which this unfolds with aeration. The palate is vibrant on the entry with good acidity but then the second half just seems a little simple by comparison. A wine of two halves, the first better than the second, but overall a very sound Pouilly-Fuissé Vers Cras that may well warrant a higher score in the future.

    The 2017 Pombal do Vesúvio (Quinta do Vesúvio) is mostly a 54/40 blend of Touriga Franca and Touriga Nacional with 6% Tinta Amarela, aged for eight months in used French oak. It comes in at 14.4% alcohol, an uptick from last year's vintage. Wow. The fruit here seems to be the essence of young fruit, primary, sexy and just delicious. Of the Symington selections this issue (including the sister producer Prats & Symington), this is the best value, the biggest overachiever. One of the best in the brand so far#maybe the best yet#this starts off with that great fruit laced with plums and dried blueberries, but it does not neglect the concepts of balance, finesse and structure. Beautifully constructed, this has moderate tannins to support the fruit and a big, long finish. It feels fresh rather than jammy, despite both its power and sex appeal. The only question now is where this goes#can it develop some complexity, some additional distinction in the c

    Bottled in July 2016 and released in September 2018, the 2015 Plus appears to be a bit more elegant compared to the more evolved 2013 that I tasted at the same time. It is not as sweet either. The bouquet offers pineapple, candied fruit and honey, but this vintage clearly has more room to grow and evolve. It's all primary fruit, but it is also more elegant as a result. Put this one away for a few years, and I bet it will become a very special Friulano.

    The 2017 Planetes de Nin comes from the four hectares of 20-year-old Garnacha and 11-year-old Cariñena in the Planetes vineyard in Porrera at 450 meters in altitude. It's 60% Garnacha (some of it Peluda) and the rest Cariñena, harvested early. It fermented with indigenous yeasts and matured in 3,200-liter oak vats and one 1,000-liter amphora for 17 months. It has depth and harmony, and the vines are getting older and seem to be better and better balanced. This is not that different from the 2016; it feels quite stable and has its style and character, especially since the 2015 vintage.

    The 2016 Jenins Pinot Noir Sélection Barrique (for details see the review of the 2017) offers an intense, warm and concentrated nose of ripe cherries, stewed strawberries and nougat and indicates a remarkable richness, elegance and harmony. The attack on the palate is generous and intense, but the wine remains elegant and fine, with vital tannins and a persistent mineral acidity and complexity. The long finish is compact, salty and powerful. This is a promising Pinot that was picked with tiny yields of just 400 grams per vine. It's more intense and fleshier than the refreshing and transparent 2017 but sweeter and more charming than the great 2015. In any case, the 2016 needs more time to show off. Bottled in March 2018; tasted in January 2019.

Lush and sweet on the palate, this is a generous and silky-textured Pinot with fine tannins, remarkable freshness and a long, intense finish. While the Eichholz is tart and fleshy, this is more of a smooth, round and powerful Pinot with sweetness and oaky tannin structure that serves a certain style more than the purity of fruit and terroir.

    In 1977, Sandrine's grandfather was one of the first vignerons to plant Païen (a.k.a. Heida or Savagnin) in the French-speaking part of the Valais. Sandrine still cultivates the old plot that is planted with green and yellow Savagnin. Her organically farmed 2018 Païen Les Bernunes opens with a deep, intense and concentrated bouquet with a deep layer of crushed stones and delicately aromatic ripe fruit aromas. Full-bodied, lush and round, with fine tannins rather than vibrant acidity like the Petite Arvine, this is rich and almost oily-textured Savagnin with a long and tannic finish that is still tight, with tannins that seem to be slightly greenish. This Païen has some features of red wine, like what you find in serious Gewürztraminers, and I'd recommend waiting another year or two before serving the 2018. Tasted in January 2020.

    The 2017 Nossa Calcário red is a Baga (although in the past, I've been told that among the old vines there are tiny amounts of other varieties) from three vineyards with an average vine age of 80 years, aged 18 months in mostly used French oak (but one 2,000-liter Slavonian cask). Soft and understated on opening, this is a wine that needs some time in the glass to show what it has. It is easy to take a quick taste and wonder where everything is. This is often subtle, but it is eventually so persistent that it makes you notice its virtues all the time. Come back in an hour. The wine expanded in the glass and developed more power while it dribbled terrific fruit over the palate. It is relatively sexy for a Baga, and it was better the next day, fleshing out and seeming even richer. The Baga here never seems terribly rustic, as it can often be. The texture is pure velvet.

    The 2016 Nit de Nin Mas d#en Caçador was produced with grapes from 78- to 113-year-old vines in the Mas d'en Caçador vineyard in Porrera. It's a blend of Garnacha Negra, Garnacha Peluda and Cariñena with some 5% white grapes. It fermented with full clusters and indigenous yeasts in a 3,200-liter oak vat and matured in a similar 2,700-liter oak vat. It has great balance and is ripe and Mediterranean, without any excess; it's incredibly elegant and has character. In a way, it makes me think of a classical Châteauneuf, with fine tannins and subtle minerality. 4071 bottles and 60 magnums were filled in April 2019.

    The 2017 Nit de Nin Mas d#en Caçador is a vintage they talk about like this: "We will remember this vintage as one of the most extreme of the decade, along with that of 2012.

Our vines did not suffer the severe frosts of this 2017." The wine has lower alcohol than the 2016 but the same pH of 3.3; insultingly young and tender, it doesn't feel like the wine had a long élevage in oak. It has kept very good freshness and great balance. It's tasty, pungent and long, with power and elegance and all the components to develop nicely in bottle.

    The 2017 Nit de Nin La Coma d#en Romeu is from an extremely dry and early harvest that delivered just five hectoliters per hectare! That means they only produced 1,330 bottles from the 1.5 hectares of Garnacha on those slate terraces at 350 meters in altitude. It was bottled in April 2019. It has a beautiful and subtle nose that's very spicy (cloves and cumin, curry and pink pepper) and floral, with a palate that feels light but has great depth and inner power, with pungent flavors and subtle minerality.

    Macerated overnight with stems and skins and vinified in large oak, the unfiltered 2016 Neubürger Freyheit has a cloudy citrus color and opens with an intensely aromatic bouquet of citrus fruits, oak and yeasty notes. On the palate, this is a lean but textured, beautifully fresh and citrusy Neuburger with a tight, fresh, salty, well-structured finish. This is a terribly crisp and vital but also complex Neuburger with 12% alcohol and no added sulfur. Bottled unfiltered. Tasted October 2018.

    About ten producers make wine in the Valmaggiore cru in Roero (many of whom are reviewed here), and these wines get better each year I return to taste them. The 2016 Nebbiolo d'Alba Valmaggiore is particularly beautiful, thanks to ideal growing conditions during that year. The Sandrone family counts 3.5 hectares in this location. As an alternative to Barolo, this wine presents a soft and graceful side of Nebbiolo with delicate fruit nuances and distinct mineral etchings. Indeed, the wine is almost salty in taste. The sandy soils of Valmaggiore contribute to shaping the wine's lively ruby appearance and those tangy wild berry aromas. This wine is only aged in neutral oak.

    The 2016 Nebbiolo d'Alba Valmaggiore is superb. In most vintages, the Valmaggiore is gracious to the point of being somewhat ethereal, but the 2016 is endowed with tremendous depth and a level of textural resonance I have never seen in this wine before. Expressive and layered, with tons of Nebbiolo character, the 2016 Valmaggiore is a total knock-out. Don't miss it!

    With scorching heat and little rain overall, there was reason for worry during the 2017 growing season at large, but in the Roero zone by the banks of the Tanaro river, the hilly Valmaggiore vineyards received more rain than other parts of Piedmont, so these grapes did not suffer as much. Lovely notes of red rose and some herbal tones appear on the nose of the 2017 Nebbiolo d'Alba Valmaggiore, coupled with balsam, spice and rosemary. It's voluminous in the mouth, and while the Le Vigne Barolo tends to be the most floral and delicately ethereal of Sandrone's release, this bouquet is distinctive in its own way. It would be a nice pair with a mushroom risotto.

    The 2017 Nebbiolo d'Alba Valmaggiore is bright, fruity and absolutely delicious. The warm vintage seems to have given the Valmaggiore an extra kick of mid-palate sweetness, which is not a bad thing for a wine that can at times be a bit lean. Sweet red berry fruit and floral notes are nicely pushed forward. The 2017 will benefit from a few years in bottle, which will allow the aromatics to develop, but it is impeccable in its balance and super-classy, even in the early going.

    Released six years after the harvest, the 2013 Nebbiolo d'Alba Valmaggiore is theoretically considered a new wine, although in practice this expression of Nebbiolo is part of the Sibi Paucis series of late releases from this estate. It is a beautiful expression that you appreciate more in the mouth than you do on the nose. Silky and elegant, the tannins have been softly integrated, and the overall effect is beautifully tempered and graceful. Its very apparent mineral sensations and budding tertiary complexity make it an important wine even when stacked against the other lofty achievements of Luciano Sandrone.

    From 30-year-old vines, fermented for one year in small barrels and aged for another six months in stainless steel (without the addition of sulfur), the 2013 Morillon Zieregg was bottled unfiltered in July 2015; it opens pure and mineral on the nose, and reflects its great shell limestone terroir in 450 meters altitude, with floral and lemon aromas. Compared to the corresponding Zieregg Weissburgunder (Pinot Blanc), this Morillon (Chardonnay) seems leaner and straighter, but is very intense and compact, well structured and powerful. The finish is long and grippy, a bit austere, but full of tension and potential. There is a great finesse and salivating salinity in this wine that is surely on the quality level of the Zieregg Sauvignons. Keep this "Grosse STK Lage" cru for another five to 15 years and don't miss to try it.

    The golden-yewllow colored 2015 Zieregg Morillon comes from Muschelkalk soils with a thicker layer of brown soil. The wine opens with a clear, intense and aromatic bouquet of perfectly ripe, yellow-fleshed fruits intermixed with crushed rocks and lemon juice. Round and very elegant on the palate, this is a rich, full-bodied and juicy Zieregg with a mouthful of fruit, fine acidity, firm tannins and a lingering finish. It is still a bit hard and tannic in the finish, but this will soften over the time. The wine is succulent, powerful and big and needs this structure. It has more flesh on the bones compared to the more mineral and pure Weissburgunder form the very stony part of the Zieregg. Tasted at the domaine in May 2017.

    The 2016 Ried Zieregg Morillon is from the oldest, southwest-facing part of the cru and was planted by Manfred Tement in the early 1980s on coral limestone. Today the vineyard is so well balanced that the yields are almost never reduced and the grapes are picked in just a single day. In 2016, the loss due to frost was "just" 50% (compared to 85% in Sulz), and the grapes came only from the very first shoots, which resulted in a long vegetation period. The 2016 includes one barrel of Pinot Blanc (10%) and opens pure, fine and fresh on the nose, with beautiful chalky notes and perfectly ripe fruit aromas. On the palate, this is a pure, vital and tensioned wine with great elegance, grip and lots of (almost peppery) spices and fine tannins. The 2016 has remarkable finesse and a persistent, citrus-fresh finish that reveals endless energy, purity and salinity. This is like a top Côte des Blancs Champagne without bubbles.

    From chalky marl soils and the warmest vineyard of the family (just 5 kilometers west of the domaine), the 2015 Sulz Morillon was fermented in 1,000-liter and 228-liter barrels. It offers a clear, fresh and aromatic bouquet with coolish earthy and lemon peel flavors and a hint of smoke. Very elegant and fresh on the palate, with piquant acidity and a crispy phenol structure, this is a full-bodied and persistent Chardonnay of remarkable elegance and powerful juiciness. The tannins are fine but grippy, and the aftertaste is chalky, aromatic and very long. I tasted this wine in May 2017 from a bottle that was filled the same day (LO 80517), whereas two-thirds of the production still remains in stainless steel.

    This wine is drinking beautifully right now. The 2012 Mille e Una Notte is a lot of fun to drink. You are treated to balanced aromas of black fruit and plum that are contrasted against spice, licorice and smoke. Nero d'Avola tends to show aromas of black olive, caper and aniseed in its natural state. You get some of those aromas here, but the black fruit is ultimately what shows strongest. This full-bodied red is endowed with rich texture and solid structure. It should continue to evolve over the next 10 years.

    The 2014 Mille e Una Notte is mostly Nero d'Avola with some other red grapes in a supporting role. This was a terrific vintage in Sicily that did not see the below average temperatures and heavy rainfall that plagued the rest of mainland Italy. Instead, the growing season was characterized by balanced temperatures and steady sunshine. The fruit has matured beautifully here, showing blackberry, ripe cherry and plum. Tangy leather and spice add complexity to the wine. This is a full-bodied red with beautiful textual richness.

There is no oak, no extraction, no flesh#just silky and pure. This is a very delicate Merlot and a typical Zündel. Absolutely delicious, even with fish.
