Winemaker Notes

Bright ruby color. Very intense aromas of spices and small wild berries. Dry, full-bodied, great structure and complexity, excellent, long finish.

Perfect for grilled or roasted red meats and most game.

RP 97
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2007 Brunello di Montalcino is a pure, rapturous beauty. Layers of sweet red fruit meld into rose petals, licorice, spices and mint as the 2007 seduces all of the senses. The ripe, open personality of the year is present, but there is more than enough structure to provide balance. Floral notes reappear on the vibrant, beautifully articulated finish. The 2007 is more than a worthy follow up to the epic 2006. Even better it should drink well quite a bit earlier than that wine. Sadly, there are fewer than 1,000 cases to go around. This is a magical Brunello in every way. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2032.

La Cerbaiola di Giulio Salvioni, , Italy
Salvioni
The Salvioni family has been growing Sangiovese grapes for generations, starting in the early 1900s. Thanks to the last descendent, Mr. Giulio Salvioni, this winery also vinifies and bottles Brunello di Montalcino. The first production dates back to 1985.

The vineyard, situated in the Commune of Montalcino at about 400 meters above sea level spans only 3 hectares. The soil is a mix of schist and clay marl. The plants are grown traditionally with the Cordone Speronato (Trellising) method and produce 42 quintals per hectares of grapes annually. Giulio Salvioni has managed to craft a true Brunello di Montalcino that is well integrated and balanced. Individualism and personal care have made this wine a bit of a cult player for the finest grained Brunello made.

Champagne

Associated with luxury, celebration, and romance, Champagne is home to the world’s most prized sparkling wine. In order to be labeled ‘Champagne’ within the EU and many New World countries, a wine must originate in this northeastern region of France and adhere to strict quality standards. Made up of the three towns Reims, Épernay, and Aÿ, it was here that the traditional method of sparkling wine production was both invented and perfected, birthing a winemaking technique as well as a flavor profile that is now emulated worldwide. Well-drained limestone chalk soil defines much of the region, lending a mineral component to the wines. The climate here is marginal—ample acidity is a requirement for sparkling wine, so overripe grapes are to be avoided. Weather differences from year to year create significant variation between vintages, and in order to maintain a consistent house style, non-vintage cuvées are produced annually from a blend of several years.

With nearly negligible exceptions, three varieties are permitted for use in Champagne: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier. These can be blended together or bottled varietally, depending on the final style of wine desired. Chardonnay, the only white variety, contributes freshness, delicacy, and elegance, as well as bright and lively acidity and notes of citrus, orchard fruit, and white flowers. Pinot Noir and its relative Pinot Meunier provide the backbone to many blends, adding structure, body, and supple red fruit flavors. Wines with a large proportion of Pinot Meunier will be ready to drink earlier, while Pinot Noir contributes to longevity. Whether it is white or rosé, most Champagne is made from a blend of red and white grapes—and uniquely, rosé is often produce by blending together red and white wine. A Champagne made exclusively from Chardonnay will be labeled as ‘blanc de blancs,’ while one comprised of only red grapes are called ‘blanc de noirs.’
