Roberto scored this wine: 94/100

What a nice wine I had!!! Made with 90% Sauvignon Blanc, 5% Sauvignon Gris and 5% Semillon this is one of the most interesting and known Bordeaux Blanc. Impressive aspect with gold yellow of medium/deep depth and nice brightness shows aged aromas od coffee and toffee, dried stone fruit, chamomile but it is very reduced for the first 20 minutes and oak is still dominating. With oxigenation the wines opens up more flavours and notes of nettle, honey,medicinal herbs, zafran, ginger comes through. On the palate the wine is dry and full bodied very well balanced with powerful intensity of aromas. Very ripe friut in the aftertaste as well as some oak. at it's peack but still capable of giving you big surprises in the next 3/4 yers

Roberto scored this wine: 89/100

One of the most classical italian wines produced in the center of Italy, Umbria, with 70% Sangiovese and 30% Canaiolo. Medium intense red colour is very reduced as poured into the glass opens up with oxigenation: plums, tobacco, cherry in spirit and incense. The attack on the palate is bone dry, medium to full bodied, medium acidity with high and dry tannins looks still very young and unbalanced but shows great aging potential.

A very surprising wine that doesn't show it's 19 years!! Brick red with medium concentration, very complex in the nose with aged aromas of toffee, coffee, allspice, licorice and tamarind. Bone dry on the palate with smooth acidity and medium soft tannins. Very balanced in the taste and flavoral intensity reminding tobacco and dried plums. Quite long finish. Twitter: @robertoanesi
