2012 Prunotto, Barolo, Bussia Colonnello Riserva 6x75cl

WE95
"A strong red in color with ruby highlights in color, the wine displays floral aromas of rose petals along with perfectly ripe red fruit (raspberries and pomegranates) and spicy and balsamic notes.... The flavors are intense with full, enveloping and supple tannins and a long and persistent finish and aftertaste. Its solid structure and firm body are an excellent match with meat and game dishes and with cheese." - tasting notes from Prunotto The Bussia cru is one of the most prestigious locations in the township of Monforte, the heart of the Barolo area. Within the confines of the Bussia sub-zone, Prunotto has identified a 2.5 acre plot known by local growers as “Vigna Colonnello” (“the Colonnello vineyard”). The plot enjoys a west-southwestern exposure with vines between 35 and 40 years of age. The soil consists of 25% sand, 25% clay and 50% loam. Given these special characteristics, the Colonnello fruit is fermented and aged on its own to produce a very special Barolo Riserva wine.

2017 Croft, Quinta da Roeda Serikos Vintage Port 3x75cl

JR17.5+VM97WE95
“The maiden 2017 Serikos from Croft comes from the oldest vines located in Quinta da Roeda. The name refers to the quinta's involvement in silk production and the texture of the wine. It was picked... from August 31 and was notable for the density of its musts from the thick-skinned grapes. Almost opaque in colour, it has a spellbinding bouquet of intense blackcurrant, crushed violet petals and later, star anis and camphor. The palate is medium-bodied with succulent tannin, a silver bead of acidity that slices through the multi-layered, intense black fruit laced with white pepper and sage. This is endowed with unerring symmetry, predictably a silky texture and outstanding crispiness towards the never-ending finish. Regal. Total production is 2,425 bottles.” 97 pts., Neal Martin, vinous.com
