Pinot Noir

Sangiovese Sierra Folia

Blueberries are organic grown combined with little wild plums of all colors we pick ourselves along the Snake River that separate Oregon from Idaho.
Nebbiolo

Castello di Neive

The generous mid-palate has mouth-filling textual layers with hints of toast and vibrancy to the fruit. The gentle acid balance opens the palate finishing with soft lingering flavours.
Chardonnay

Domaine Prieuré-Roch Blanc

A light yellow in color with a creamy bubbling and an elegant and persistent sparkling. The nose is fragrant and expressive with fruity and floral notes.

The 2015 Cava d’Onice Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is a friut-forward and sweetly spiced effort. Ripe black cherries, cinnamon, all spice and clove form a seductive bouquet with grounding hints of sage and leather. The textures are silky, offset by tart red berries with inner herbal and floral tones forming over a layer of grippy tannins. Youthfully dry and structured, this tapers off with chewy feel. This is balanced enough for mid-term cellaring, yeti t lacks gravitas.

It is composed and defined in the brightness of a vibrant, crisp red that shows notes of cherries, white flowers and red blossoms. Pressed grape must dominates the secondary scene. Lightness blends with the amiability of a perfectly ripe and expertly crafted fruit. Medium body, round tannins without edge and a graceful finish full of juiciness and bite. Better by 2021.

Pure energy in this bubbling red with notes of red flowers, cedar, grapefruit juice and lime. Beautiful sensory complexity that makes use of the presence of fresh ginger that gives intensity and precision to the matrix. What quality fruit in the mid-palate that shows ripe, dense tannins in the structure and a solid, concentrated, high-performance finish. Excellence made in Montalcino. Better by 2022.

In the background, spices dominate the secondary scene in shades of wilted marjoram and cinnamon powder.

The 2012 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is a darkly saturated and rich wine that boasts a thick and inky appearance. The bouquet is laced with dark fruit aromas of blackberry, prune, plum and cassis. These fruit tones are enhanced by the warmth of the 2012 growing season. In the mouth, this wine is lavish and opulent with soft, integrated tannins. Only 2,000 bottles were produced.

Firm, quite juicy, rather dark fruit with some sweetish spicy oak, some tobacco and some dried herbs, persistent on the palate, some depth, firm, fine tannins and some acid bite, still undeveloped, in the background mineral, becomes even finer with elegant, very good, rather cool, firm, juicy and spicy finish with paprika notes.

Il naso è caratterizzato da un aroma principale di frutti di bosco, molto pulito ed aperto. Al palato è un vino intenso, muscoloso, dove le note di frutti rossi sono accompagnati da un finale leggermente speziato. Acidità e tannino sono alquanto fini e morbidi. Strutturalmente è un vino molto corposo, dotato di grande energia, in grado di esprimersi anche nel tempo. Molto piacevole l’allungo finale.
