Allegrini Amarone Classico 1995 750ml

Violet SipsViolet

"The 1995 Amarone has developed beautifully. It remains firm and vibrant, with lovely complexity in its perfumed red cherries, licorice, leather, mint and flowers. Still big and full-bodied, the 1995 promises to drink well for a number of years. It is a magnificent effort from Allegrini. Much of the wine’s freshness can be attributed to a cold, rainy spring that resulted in an uneven flowering and naturally lower yields. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2015." - Antonio Galloni, Vinous (Apr 2010)”

Antinori Tignanello 2014 750ml

Violet Sips, WineViolet

“Winemaker Notes

Ruby red in color with purple highlights, the 2014 Tignanello shows an intense nose of red fruit with hints of leather and sweet spice. The wine is ample and enveloping on the palate with supple tannins that respect the character and personality of the Sangiovese grape. The finish and aftertaste are of lovely length and persistence.”超級巿場/超級市場/酒類/紅酒/意大利/天娜-2014-2支優惠套裝-750ml/p/S1162001_S_PACKAT2014OCC01

Bolgheri Sassicaia 2014 750ml

Wine, Violet SipsViolet

93 Points, Monica Larner - The Wine Advocate: ""This is my official review of the 2014 Bolgheri Sassicaia after having been graciously invited to the estate for various barrel samples spanning back several years. I have watched the evolution of this wine with a close eye and am impressed by how its real quality is diametrically opposed to the poor expectations of this difficult vintage. The nose is redolent of bright fruit and blackberry. Spice, tar and leather appear subtly at the back. The wine took on considerable weight each year I came back to taste it and this vintage was bottled earlier than average, precisely to give it more time to unwind and relax in the small confines of the bottle. This is a solid effort for sure and the wine is a stunning example of what it takes to make great wine, even when weather conditions are not in your favor."" Issue #230, 4/17"
