2006 NEO PUNTA ESENCIA RIBERA DEL DUERO
"The 2006 Neo Punta Esencia reveals a room-filling aromatic array of pain grille, mineral, tobacco, incense, black cherry, and blackberry. On the palate this opulent wine is massive with dense fruit, loads of concentration, and incipient complexity with the oak nicely integrated. It demands a decade of cellaring and will have a drinking window extending from 2016 to 2036."
"Bodegas Neo consists of a bunch of young guys having the time of their lives. They seem to be making wine everywhere (Rueda, Priorat, Bierzo, Rioja, and Ribera del Duero), as well as designing wine labels, recording music videos, and generally partying. But when it comes down to their top two wines, they are deadly serious. On my visit in May, 2010, I was shown verticals of Neo and Neo Punta Esencia. Neo is sourced from 50- to 60-year-old Tempranillo vines and typically aged in French and American oak for 15 months before bottling without fining or filtration. Neo Punta Esencia is made only in the better years. It is sourced from a single, 80-year-old vineyard producing tiny yields. It receives the '200% new oak' treatment spending 12 months in 100% new French oak before racking into a different set of new barrels for 6 months." -93 Points- Jay Miller- Wine Advocate
"Glass-staining violet. Intensely perfumed bouquet of dark berries, cherry pit, licorice, Indian spices and minerals. Sappy blackberry and cassis flavors are brightened by tangy minerals and pick up an exotic note of candied flowers with air. Very rich but lively wine with excellent finishing lift and tangy precision. Give it another three to five years in the cellar before pulling the cork." -93 points- Josh Raynolds- International Wine Cellar
"Produced from vines aged more than 80 years grown in clay/limestone and alluvial soils of the village of La Horra which are farmed with a specific intent to produce low yields of ripe, healthy grapes. Yields are below 15 hectoliters/hectare. Destemmed berries were fermented for 22 days prior to pressing in a small capacity, gentle, vertical basket press. Aged 12 months in 100% new French oak barrels followed by one racking into 100% new French oak for a total of 18 months in oak. Bottled without filtration or clarification." -Importer
"This vineyard-driven project was started without a vineyard by a group of young friends with the goal of respecting tradition, honoring quality and searching for the essence of wine. They aim to produce wine with the perfect balance between fruit and wood which will allow the wines to be enjoyed immediately and age well. The initial vintages made from purchased grapes that had been farmed by the winery from 50 year and older vines. The project has grown into its own vineyard and a new winery building under the winemaking direction of Isaac Fernandez."
"Isaac has been for many years demonstrating what some call a 'gift', and others call a 'deep knowledge of the way that takes from the elaboration to the glass'. Isaac's philosophy is this: 'I try to make wines of the highest possible quality based on each year and look to be able to offer to them to the world with reasonable and competitive prices. I try to respect to the maximum the identity of the vineyards and of the grapes with which I work, despite this it is not an impediment to be able to develop my wines and to equip to them with an elegance that differentiates to them from the rest.'" -Importer
2004 GRIMALDI BAROLO SOTTO IL CASTELLO
"The 2004 Barolo Sotto Castello di Novello is a super-ripe wine bursting with generous notes of blueberries, spices, violets and sweet toasted oak. This poised, well-defined Barolo possesses lovely depth and vibrancy. It isn't the most typical Barolo out there, but it does offer outstanding harmony in its own way. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2019." -92 points- Antonio Galloni- Wine Advocate
"Ripe fruit, with hints of tar and spices. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins, along with blackberry and dark chocolate. Mouthpuckering. Powerful. Best after 2012. 500 cases made." -92 points Wine Spectator
"Giacomo Grimaldi, was founded in 1930 by Ernesto Grimaldi. In 1983 the winery was inherited by Giacomo, who sold the greatest part of his grapes in bulk, while keeping only a small part to be bottled for sale to a mostly local clientele."
"In 1996 Ferruccio Grimaldi, Giacomo's son decided to continue the family wine business. Animated by a great passion, Ferruccio started to produce wines exclusively from the family's vineyards. He began acquiring vineyards of Nebbiolo in the most prestigious Barolo zones, firmly convinced of the great potential of Barolo wine. The familyâs vines grew from 1,5 hectares to 10 hectares. The current vineyards are situated in the communes of Barolo, Novello and Monforte and divided as follows: 6 hectares of Nebbiolo for Barolo, 2 of Barbera d'Alba, 1 of Dolcetto d'Alba, 1 of Nebbiolo."
"In the vineyard, there is significant attention and a deep devotion to the care of the vines. Ferruccio is renowned amongst other wine makers for his 'perfectionism' in caring for the plants. Green harvest is vital to Ferruccio, to reduce the quantity of the yield for a better quality."
"The total production of the Giacomo Grimaldi winery is 50,000 bottles divided among seven labels: Dolcetto d'Alba DOC, Barbera d'Alba DOC, Barbera d'Alba Fornaci DOC, Nebbiolo d'Alba Valmaggiore DOC, Barolo DOCG, Barolo Sotto Castello di Novello DOCG, Barolo Le Coste DOCG." -Importer
