Araldica Gavi, 2011
Clean, fresh and really inviting on the nose (and on the palate), with floral, green apple, touch of pear and citrus aromas. Very crisp mouthfeel, vivid and very enjoyable, with a good fruit richness and concentration. Zesty citrus fruit characters in the mid-palate with racy acidity and bright mineral notes. The finish is fairly long and clean. A delightful summery wine to enjoy as an aperitif, fresh vegetable or fruit salads. Somewhat ideal when combined with melon and Parma ham in the middle of a warm afternoon. 88 points Wine Advocate
Baricci Brunello di Montalcino, 2007
Nello Baricci, one of the 26 founders of the Association of the Brunello di Montalcino in 1967, is the personality who most represents the host of small producers who contributed towards making the Brunello di Montalcino the great wine it is today. His farm, Colombaio di Montosoli, has always been one of the great crus of the Brunello and is a small set-up that has made its name thanks to the quality of the wines and the seriousness and honesty of the Baricci family.
Tasting notes: Ruby red color, tends to garnet red with ageing. Complex aromas with hints of violet and forest fruits with essences of plum and cherry combined with oak shadings, vanilla spice and blackberry. On the palate the wine is warm and velvety, shows a well-integrated balance of tannins and acidity. Rich structure and great elegance. Enjoy it with red roast meat, noble game and aged cheeses. Serve at 64F or age for years at 55F
