2006 Cargasacchi Pinot Noir Santa Rita Hills Cargasacchi Vineyard
"A very 'Burgundian' Pinot Noir in the mushroom, pine needle and herb scents that accompany the deeper fruit flavors of black cherries and red currants, accented with savory clove spice. Structurally, the wine shows a brilliant architecture of firm tannins and crisp acids, with a deft touch of oak. Really a treat to drink, and should evolve for many years." 94 points Wine Enthusiast
"The 2006 Cargasacchi Pinot Noir is well balanced with a nose that shows hints of earth, sage and violets with dominant cherry and black currant/cassis. The tending towards darker fruit aromatics lead to and compliment the velvety and rich mid-palate texture. Red and dark fruits, including blackberry and raspberry puree are framed in the mouth by crisp refreshing acidity before melting into silky but firm tannins." -Winery
"The fruit was hand harvested and destemmed but the whole berries were not crushed. Destemming was followed by a five days cold soak with dry ice prior to fermentation in 1-ton open top fermenters. Fermentation was allowed to begin with native yeast, then inoculated to assure complete fermentation. Raised in small 228 liter barrels consisting of tight-grained sessile oak from three different forests near the center of France, the wine was racked once during the 15-month elevage and bottled on December 2007. The wine is made with 100% Dijon clone 115 from Morey St. Denis, the most widely planted scion selection in Burgundy, France. The Dijon 115 is planted in shallow, high lime, calcareous shale soils but grafted onto a rootstock with poor tolerance for limestone, (3309 Couderc) to devigorate and decrease cluster and berry size." -Winery

2006 Pietranera Brunello Di Montalcino
"The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino Pietranera is a beautiful, mid-weight wine graced with exquisite aromatics, well-articulated fruit and a long, polished finish. This remains a medium-bodied, focused style of Brunello that shows the more feminine side of Sangiovese. Saline notes frame the focused, energetic finish. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024." 92 Points - Antonio Galloni - Wine Advocate
"Structured and dense, this bold Brunello offers big color, density and extraction. On the nose, it is characterized by elegant oak tones of vanilla and spice that are married to bright cherry after tones." 92 Points - Wine Enthusiast
"Good bright, deep red. Sexy aromas of red cherry, rose petal and spices reminded me a bit of a Chambolle. A juicy, lithe midweight, with very firm acidity giving focus to the pretty, high-pitched flavors of black raspberry and candied violet. Still youthfully tight, but this stylish wine finishes with suave tannins." 91 Points - Stephen Tanzer - International Wine Cellar
VITICULTURE & VINIFICATION:
"The vineyards are in the south-east side of Montalcino. The fruit is harvested the first half of October. Grapes are picked from the bunch and softly squeezed; the maceration takes place in stainless steel vats for a period of 25 days with repeated wine-pressings and delestages. During this phase the alcoholic fermentation is completed and controlled at a temperature of 28-30 Â°C."
"After the fermentation method has been completed, the wine spends 24-30 months in Slavonian oak barrels of 50 hectolitres. It is then aged for another 6 months in stainless steel vats, and at least 12 months in the bottles before being put on the market, at the beginning of the fifth year after the harvest. Intense ruby-red, with a tendency to garnet-red with the ageing. On the nose, this is round, intense well-balanced, with a long finish. On the palate, this is complex, elegant, full-bodied, velvety. Red meat and game, matured cheeses and complex dishes are great pairings for this wine. Open 1-2 hours before being served." -Winery
