exceedingly supple mouthfeel. The blend is Cabernet Sauvignon (50%), Merlot, Cabernet Franc and a small part Petit Verdot (all aged 18 months in barrique). The beautifully rich wine inches forward over the palate with heft and determination, imparting bright cherry, blackberry and spice as it moves slowly along. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2021.

the glass with notes of cedar and black cherry, roasted nuts, dark spice and high-cacao chocolate. Purple fruits and midnight florals waft by, as well. The palate is rife with more black cherry and chocolate, black licorice, loamy earth and spice, all enveloped by overseeing dark fruits. Great finish, fantastic wine.

Azienda Agricola Giovanni Chiappini is situated in the famous zone of Tuscany called Bolgheri. The farm of the Chiappini Family is stretching on the green hills of Bolgheri, offering a unique view of the surrounding area. The sun rises behind the green, and the wonderful wild hills of Bolgheri,that are dominated by the fortress of Castiglioncello, which almost touches the tops of the famous cypresses, drawing on the sea.

This is where many extraordinary wines are produced, and this estate is situated right amongst the most famous, such as Ornellaia and Le Macchiole. A part of the production of olive oil in which the family runs a small Agriturismo named "Tra gli Ulivi" (Among olive trees), and produces wine such as Le Grottine, Ferruggini, Felciaino, Guado de' Gemoli and the line Lienà.

palate give it away. Scents of sweet cherry tobacco, sandalwood and warm autumn spices lead to notes of new leather and black tea. Upon tasting, the cherry fruits (both red and black) establish a foothold as baking spices lend support; all uplifted by excellent acidity.

Giovanni Chiappini is a winemaker who owns a small family run estate in the rich countryside of Bolgheri. Giovanni was born in a farmer’s family, which immigrated to Bolgheri from a small village in Marche in 1954. His parents, Nilo and Rosa, bought 6 hectares of land in the Ferruggini county from the aristocratic family Della Gherardesca. After six years of working experience as a workman in 1978 Giovanni bought his own first piece of land near Strada Bolgherese, which is located right beside the famous Ornellaia estate. During next 18 years Chiappini acquired more land nearby which today form an estate’s production area, where vines and olive trees are mostly cultivated following the local tradition. In the year 2000 the first bottles of wine were put on the market, and since then the family has made its good name not only for the good olive oil but also for the excellent wine.

Giovanni Chiappini believes that it is the vine that makes the wine and therefore everything around them has to be looked after perfectly. Together with Bordeaux varieties traditional Sangiovese and Vermentino are also cultivated. His wines, due to the position of his land, reflect Bolgheri style, matching structure, perfume and elegance. Chiappini is in his way a “simple-guy” winemaker, who succeeded to transform his vast agricultural experience into ability to create noble wines, connecting modern Bolgheri style with an old Tuscan tradition.

Hailed as the standard-bearer of Italian enology, the historic Tenuta San Guido estate is known for crafting Sassicaia (Gambero Rosso’s “Read More...
2013 Top Red Wine of the Year”), the world’s first Super Tuscan and an important contribution to Italy’s evolving reputation as a fine-wine producing nation in the mid-20th century. The 2000 vintage saw the first release of a new IGT Toscana wine-- called Guidalberto-- from newly planted vineyards dedicated to its production. While the wine is conceived differently from Sassicaia, it is shaped by the same soil and climate.

Earthy pepper, green olive tapenade, dark florals, mixed cherries and sea salt fill the nose. The palate starts with cherry and strawberry fruit as the soft tannins and steady acidity keep the wine uplifted and lively, as more earth and green olive blend with Kriek lambic and white pepper. This is big, muscular, forceful wine but impeccably balanced and lithe-- perhaps the perfect wine to enjoy now while waiting for the Sassicaia to be ready!

Made from merlot, cabernet and syrah. Drink in 2015"

WINE ADVOCATE 90 POINTS - "The 2012 Bolgheri Rosso (50% Merlot, 30% Syrah and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon aged in oak for ten months) opens to soft layers of cherry syrup and sweet fruit embedded within the wine’s rich texture. The Syrah component is 10% higher in 2012 and you can definitely identify lingering tones of smoked bacon and white pepper that are characteristic of that grape variety. This is a fine effort."

I was absolutely impressed with this new set of releases from Cinzia Merli and consulting enologist Luca D’Attoma. The biggest surprise, however, is the 2011 Scrio (100% Syrah) that embraces the warmth of the vintage with impeccable precision and elegance. So much attention in the past has been paid to Messorio and Paleo, but the 2011 vintage finally sees Scrio in the spotlight.

sandalwood and iron aromas and flavors. Nonetheless, this comes across as elegant, even as the tannins prove formidable on the finish. A terrific young wine in the making. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Best from 2017 through 2035. 2,200 cases imported."

JAMES SUCKLING 96 POINTS - This shows incredible concentration with dark-berry, dark-chocolate, mint and rosemary character. Full body with a superb depth of fruit and polished tannins. It's chewy but caressing. This needs at least four or five years to come around. Powerful and intense. Yet it remains fresh and bright

Winemaker's Notes - The sun-filled, early-maturing 2011 vintage perfectly expresses the qualities of Ornellaia. The wine appears an intense, youthful ruby red. The nose offers rich fruit that is fully ripe yet at the same time crisp and lively, backgrounded by delicate nuances of balsam and toastiness. On the palate, the powerful concentration immediately impresses, as do the tannins, massive yet silk-smooth and glossy, which allows the wine to completely fill the mouth but with no feeling of heaviness. The finish, near endless, is deliciously pungent and spicy, with a welcome crispness throughout.

elegant and restrained than the prototypical Super Tuscans we’re used to from Bolgheri. Consequently, his wines have garnered the praise and attention of some of the Italian wine world’s most discriminating connoisseurs and press (Matt Kramer comes to mind). The 2010 Bolgheri Rosso is Satta’s calling card—a deliciously satisfying blend of Cabernet, Sangiovese, Merlot, Teroldego, and Syrah that is hand harvested and fermented with native yeasts before spending twelve months in old French oak, ultimately bottled unfiltered. The resulting wine is smooth, complex, and indicative of great finesse and breed. One of the best Bolgheri has to offer, a steal at $18.98.
