Ravera Barolo DOCG – 2017

JancisRobinson.com
17.5 Points

Mid ruby with the beginning of orange tinges. Glorious nose of perfumed, intensely lifted cherry. Hints of black pepper and minerally stony notes. Compact, embryonic and concentrated fruit on the palate with bags of powdery tannins and succulent acidity. Great balance and length.

Ravera Barolo DOCG – 2017

Vinous
92 Points

The 2017 Barolo Ravera is a beautiful, precise wine. Bright acids and veins of tannin give the 2017 terrific energy that carries all the way through to the finish. Crushed flowers, sweet red berry fruit, chalk, white pepper and spice all open with a bit of coaxing. This is very nicely done.

Cherry and candied strawberry with flowers and some dried earth. Full-bodied, layered and chewy. Lots of wet earth and mushroom to the red fruit.

Ravera Barolo DOCG – 2017

The 2017 Barolo Ravera makes a statement with its intense aromas of licorice, kirsch, pipe tobacco, and spice. Revealing a balanced and chiseled structure, the palate conveys dried raspberry, blood orange, and dried herbs. A great wine from the 2017 vintage, it feels like it will hold up to the test of time.

Ravera Barolo DOCG – 2017

Wine Enthusiast
98 Points

Made by the estate that put this celebrated cru on the map, and showing an enviable combination of elegance and power, this stunning wine opens with aromas of wild berries, underbrush, dark spice and balsamic notes of cedar and new leather. The tense, savory palate is loaded with youthful energy, showing succulent Marasca cherry, raspberry, cinnamon and star anise framed in tightly knit, refined tannins and surprisingly bright acidity for the vintage. A mineral note suggesting iron adds depth to the close

Cascina Nuova Barolo DOCG — 2017

17 Points

Just mid ruby. A subtle, balsamic, lifted nose that is a little closed and with savoury, minerally notes. Opens up with aeration to pure cherry fruit. Focused, concentrated cherry fruit with a rich layer of intense, powdery tannins. Very elegant, with real freshness and concentration at the same time.

An attractive wine to drink now and over the next decade or so. Bright red-toned fruit, crushed rose petal and mint open in the glass.

Attractive dried strawberry with cherry and tar on the nose. Full-bodied with powerful tannins that are dusty and intense. Very flavorful and long. Solid as a rock

This is perfumed with ripe cherry, licorice, tar, and dried roses. The palate is ripe and refreshing, with a fairly classic build noted by red plum, tobacco leaf, and turned earth. This wine is beautiful and inviting out of the gates.

Passito di Pantelleria DOC – 2015

Vinous
94 Points

This boasts a deep amber color with red highlights, lifting up layered and intense to offer tropical notes of mango and papaya, then evolving further to show clove, dried roses, orange oil and sugar-dusted almond. It’s seamlessly silky and pliant yet also incredibly lifted, blending salty and sweet as its flavors morph from peach, to melon, to nectarine and even lime confetti. There is simply so much going on here, as the Bent el Riah seems to be constantly changing in the glass, finishing remarkably clean and fresh, resonating on the myriad of flavors and aromas found within. Simply stunning!

Nero D’Avola Vrucara Prephylloxera Sicilia DOC — 2016

Vinous
94+ Points

A beguiling nose of cooling mint and smoke that gives way to crushed cherries laced with licorice and hints of shaved cedar. Its velvety textures soothe, carried across a medium-bodied framework of acid and minerals, as juicy black fruits and hints of wild herbs drenched the palate. A coating of fine tannins lingers, framing the experience nicely without slowing its momentum, as nuances of plum sauce and balsamic spices slowly fade.

With purity and precision, strawberry, tobacco, vanilla and forest earth emerge from the glass. This is well-proportioned and balanced in ripeness with a core of concentrated red cherry. Fresh acidity props it up and smooth, rounded tannins frame the whole.

Subtle in its expression, this takes some time to open up, then reveals decisive fennel, red plum, white pepper and lavender. Velvety fruit is ripe yet crunchy, punctuated by herbal notes, while the discreet powdery tannins are youthful and grapey in natural. Modest yet delicious.”

Mas La Plana, DO Penedès — 2015

17.5 Points

Transparent ruby. Warm, mellow, well-melded tertiary aromas on the nose. Good freshness on the finish as well as the ripe fruit. Nothing like a bordeaux – softer and sweeter initially with much less aggressive tannin – and why should it be? Very mellifluous. Lovely drinking now with the slightest hint of spearmint and some herbal quality. Great to have such mellowness so soon.

Dramatic diurnal shifts in the 2016 growing season preserved fresh acidity in the grapes and amped up this wine’s gorgeous scents of lavender and eucalyptus. It’s a complete wine, unfolding with juicy dark-berry and plum flavors couched in a velvety texture, finishing long and balanced on lingering spice notes.

Bright sunshine and constant winds at Feudo Montoni gave a mid-weight wine with beautiful freshness. Meaty tannins frame flavors of dark plum, tobacco and carob, taking on notes of blood and iron that lend a pleasant rusticity to the wine.

Catarratto del Masso Sicilia DOC – 2020

Vinous
90 Points

There’s an airy and cooling mineral freshness to the 2020 Catarratto Masso that keeps coming back to the glass. Apricot, peach skins and lemon zest make for an invigorating bouquet. It’s a rich and pliant yet buzzing with energy derived from a mix of zesty acids and sour citrus. Hints of green melon and apple linger long through the finale. The 2020 is an excellent example of just how much character and balance Catarratto can obtain in the right hands.

Grillo della Timpa Sicilia DOC — 2020

Vinous
91 Points

The 2020 Grillo Timpa is stunning, wafting up with exotic florals and citrus tones, as a more defind bouquet of tangerine, kiwi and candied ginger evolved with time in the glass. It filles the palate with silky waves of ripe tropical fruits, all kept in check through vibrant acidity and a twang of sour lime toward the close. Pineapple mingles with mango and papaya through the long, tension-filled finale, leaving the senses completely refreshed and aching for another sip.”

Really lovely and alluring, with buttered brioche, creamed yellow apple, verbena and melon notes swirling around together. A salted butter detail drapes the finish, which has underlying zip and a floral edge for balance.
