2006 CARPINETA FONTALPINO DOFANA
"This has great color, with beautiful aromas of brewed coffee and blackberry. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a polished, refined finish. A beauty. An incredible new wine from Gioia Cresti. Sangiovese and Petit Verdot. Not imported into the U.S. Best after 2011. 500 cases made. âJS" -96 points Wine Spectator
"This is a blend of Sangiovese and Petit Verdot. It has an intense red color, that is deep. Grandiose perfumes on the nose that are delicate and persistent, with very pretty notes of cherries, blackberries, licorice and hint of vanilla. Full-bodied, with lovely silky tannins and a long flavourful finish. Rich in signs of sweet spices (cinnamon, walnuts, chocolate). Gorgeous and powerful. The aromatic persistence is amazing. Perfect with sauces, roasted meats, cheeses or practically anything of your choice!" -Winery
"Carpineta Fontalpino has been in Cresti's family since the 1960s. Gioia, 39, took over the estate with her brother, Filippo, 45, in 1990 and immediately set about replanting 44 acres of vineyards. She is currently producing some of the most exciting wines in Tuscany...Cresti is also busy with her work as a consulting agronomist. She collaborates with Carlo Ferrini, one of Tuscany's best-known consulting enologists, at well-known estates such as Casanova di Neri, Petrolo and Sette Ponti, while also consulting for a half-dozen estates on her own." -Wine Spectator article from October 2008 'Special Report: The Best of Italy: 10 Italian Wineries to Watch.'
2007 BARROCHE SIGNATURE CHATEAUNEUF DU PAPE
"Ruby-red. Raspberry and boysenberry aromas are complicated by mocha and anise. Creamy red berry preserve flavors gain weight and richness with air and take a turn to richer blueberry and boysenberry on the back. Rich but energetic, with excellent clarity and florality on the persistent finish." -93 points- Josh Raynolds- International Wine Cellar
"More structured, backward, and formidably endowed is the 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape Tradition. Made from a blend of over 80% Grenache and the rest Syrah and Cinsault, with some very old-vine fruit going into the blend, this wine is also aged in a combination of tank and foudre prior to bottling. Deep plum/ruby-colored with a striking nose of loamy soil scents interwoven with exuberant kirsch liqueur notes, licorice, and roasted Provencal herbs, the wine is backward, dense, full-bodied, and very pure, with a brilliant texture and length. This wine will benefit from another 1-2 years of cellaring and drink well for 15+ years." -92 point Robert Parker
"Julian Barrot would say he has had very little to do with it, and that it is all his magical terroir, which sits just to the east of the great vineyard of Rayas. How long will it last? Certainly 100% Grenache cuvees tend to age faster than those with some Mourvedre or Syrah in the blend, but I would think, assuming anyone of human origin can actually resist this wine, it should evolve for at least 15 or more years. Domaine La Barroche in many ways typifies what has happened in Chateauneuf du Pape over the last decade. Until 2003, the Barrot family (who can trace their origins back to the 1600s in the village) sold all of their wine in bulk to negociants. But then young son Julian was given responsibility and, in a very short period, a succession of brilliant wines has emerged, starting with the 2004 and building on that success with the 2005s, 2006s, and 2007s. This is not a small estate, totaling just under 32 acres, and at present there is the potential for four very different styles of Chateauneuf du Pape to be produced. In 2008 they only produced two cuvees." -Robert Parker writing on this estate in his 92 point tasting note; Issue 185, October 2009
"Solidly built, with an ample core of boysenberry, blackberry and braised fig fruit flavors laced with dark licorice. The long, grippy finish lets creme de cassis and plum sauce notes sail on. Rather fruit-centric now, but has the stuffing to develop further. Best from 2010 through 2027. 1,650 cases made." -92 points Wine Spectator
"Domaine de la Barroche has 12.5 hectares of vines scattered in several plots. The vineyards are all within the commune of Chateauneuf-du-Pape, mainly in the northern and northeastern parts of the appellation. The vines are an average of 60 years old. One third of these are century old Grenache. In fact, the vineyards in the lieux-dits Palestor and Grand Pierre were planted around 1900 and are among the oldest in Chateauneuf du Pape...The domaine also has a stony 0.5 hectare vineyard with 70 year old Cinsault south of the village of Chateauneuf du Pape. Julien [Barrot] is very proud of these unusual Cinsault old vines with specific characteristics." -Harry Karris, Chateauneuf du Pape book
