Castello ColleMassari Melacce Montecucco Vermentino 2018

R195.01 inc. VAT
"Clean Vermentino with a fruity-fresh first sip. Aromas of Granny Smith apple, white peach and sweet limes with a hint of exotic fruits. Crispy and dry on the palate with fantastic minerality. The after-taste is dry and indicates a good pressing as well as an aromatic precision. An ideal summer wine very elegant and classy." - Producer Note

Fèlsina “Vin Santo del Chianti Classico” 2008 (375ml)

R455.00 inc. VAT
"Hold your horses, this is one spectacular Vin Santo that explodes with intensity and authenticity. The Fèlsina 2008 Vin Santo del Chianti Classico is a true work of art, and I recommend that you sit back to savor every single special sip of this traditional sweet wine from Tuscany. The bouquet offers thick layers of candied fruit, apricot, honey, brown sugar and maple syrup. It is sweet, but in a delicate way. It provides enough tangy fruit, freshness, spice and toasted nut to magically appear less sweet than it actually is. Smoke, camphor ash and dried mint appear on the extra long finish." - Monica Larner, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Fèlsina Chianti Classico “Berardenga” Magnum 2017

R650.00 inc. VAT
"The 2017 Chianti Classico Berardenga is a fine and precise wine that shows some of the warmth, good cheer and exuberance of the vintage, but that ultimately proves to be better contained and more carefully etched than I would have anticipated. The bouquet starts off with black fruit and light shadings of spice, but the best part is in those mineral aromas of flint and slate. Serve it with stuffed red peppers. Some 280,000 bottles were made." - Monica Larner, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Fèlsina Chianti Classico “Riserva Rancia” 2016

"The 2016 Chianti Classico Riserva Rancia knocks it out of the park. Like the other new releases from Fèlsina, this pure expression of Sangiovese needs more time to evolve and improve with bottle age. But even at this young stage, you are made fully aware of the beautiful intensity and complexity of the quality fruit at its core. There is so much energy and tension here, further reinforced by the fresh acidity of the vintage. There are vibrant tones of wild cherry, raspberry and spice, followed up by white truffle and tilled earth." - Monica Larner, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Fèlsina Chianti Classico Riserva Rancia 2013 Magnum

R1,650.00 inc. VAT
"Here is another highlight of the vintage. The 2013 Chianti Classico Riserva Rancia is a dark, moody and sophisticated wine. It does not reveal itself immediately or in any obvious way. Instead, it doses out its intensity in careful measurements. The whole performance is seductive to say the least. That slow momentum leads to dark cherry with spice, grilled herb, wet earth and dried rose. Felsina's Riserva Rancia is a very elegant wine, both on the nose and in the mouth." - Monica Larner, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Fèlsina Fontalloro 2013

R795.00 inc. VAT
"Gorgeous and soft, the 2013 Fontalloro is another landmark wine from this classic vintage. There is enormous intensity here and the wine is only at the beginning of its long aging trajectory. I suggest you put off drinking it for five to ten more years. There is evident thickness and generosity here, especially in the way those bold fruit favors are woven between dark spice and leather. There are sour accents on the close that remind you of the wine's youth. The tannins are fine and well integrated." - Monica Larner, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Fèlsina Fontalloro 2016

R750.00 inc. VAT
"The 2016 Fontalloro is the best vintage of this landmark wine that I have tasted thus far. This is a very elegant vintage, with more volume in the mouth and precise notes of tar, licorice, camphor ash, resin and Indian spice. In a race between the highly competitive 2015 and 2016 vintages, I give a slight advantage to this wine. The warmer 2015 vintage shows more richness and exuberant fruit. However, this wine from 2016 offers a more focused and chiseled delivery. I am hopeful that this wine will continue to evolve and sharpen as it ages in the bottle. This is a beautiful wine to put aside in your cellar for ten years or more." - Monica Larner, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Marchesi Antinori “Guado al Tasso” 2005

R1,650.00 inc. VAT
"The estate's flagship wine, the 2005 Guado al Tasso, possesses gorgeous aromatics and a core of vibrant, dark fruit framed by finessed tannins. Medium to full-bodied, it shows superb balance, particularly in the use of French oak, something that I haven't always been able to say in the past. With air, attractive nots of wild herbs, smoke, minerals and sweet toasted oak develop to complete this very pretty Guado al Tasso." - Antonio Galloni, Vinous

Marchesi Antinori “Solaia” 2002

R3,500.00 inc. VAT
"Blackcurrants and cherries on the nose with slight oaky hints. The palate is soft, well-balanced and very lingering. This wine can be drunk immediately but has excellent ageing potential. I would be surprised by the 2002 Solaia had I not recently tasted a number of wines from that vintage that continue to exceed expectations. In 2002 production was down sharply because of the cold, rainy growing season, which precluded the Sangiovese from being used. The 2002 was bottled with a different label that included the words ‘Annata Diversa' i.e. ‘Different Vintage.' Tasting the 2002 next to the other vintages, it doesn't really seem all that different." - Antonio Galloni, Vinous

Marchesi Antinori “Solaia” Magnum 2008

R10,995.00 inc. VAT
"The 2008 Solaia is richer and darker than the Tignanello, but it isn’t an appreciably more complex or complete wine. It shows gorgeous depth and textural richness to match an expressive core of blackberry jam, smoke, scorched earth, crushed rocks and cassis. This is a beautiful wine, but not as great as I had hoped. The 2008 Solaia is 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Sangiovese and 5% Cabernet Franc, aged in 100% new oak." - Antonio Galloni, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Marchesi Antinori “Solaia” Magnum 2011

R8,995.00 inc. VAT
"Blackberry jam, cassis, grilled herbs and melted road tar meld together in the 2011 Solaia. Another super-exotic, racy 2011 from Antinori, Solaia is supremely beautiful. Mocha, espresso and sage are some of the many notes that add complexity. Hints of white truffle, lavender, smoke and licorice are laced into the exotic, racy finish. In 2011, Solaia has a dollop more of Cabernet Franc in the blend, added to give the wine a touch of freshness. Ripe and flashy to the core, the 2011 needs time to lose some of its youthful exuberance. At times, the 2011 could be easily mistaken for a wine from Napa Valley, such is its intensity." - Antonio Galloni, Vinous

Marchesi Antinori “Solaia” Magnum 2012

R8,750.01 inc. VAT
"The 2012 Solaia is the ultimate comfort wine: It serves as a beautiful monument to the potential of Italian wine. Let me give you some context. My lukewarm review of the 2011 vintage caused some heads to turn. Happily, the previous vintage has served as a springboard for this current release. Both 2011 and 2012 come from hot climatic conditions, but these wines are very different in style and content. The 2011 heat softened the lines that make up the varietal identity of this celebrated Tuscan blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Sangiovese. Those lines are presented in sharp focus with the 2012 edition. The nose is redolent of dark berry, crushed mineral, plum, spice and touch of white pepper. The wine is integrated and seamless, but it speaks with a strong and articulate voice." - Monica Larner, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
