BORDEAUX

CHÂTEAU TEYSSIER 2014

AC Montagne-Saint-Émilion

TASTING NOTE: A big earthy and savory nose

welcomes you to quite a big, powerful wine,

but this is light years removed from the sweet,

over-extracted wines of the previous decade.

Instead, it’s bold and dry with some tannic and

earthy power on the finish. Yummy. Drink now.

SYRAH/MOURVÈDRE CORBIÈRES 2014

BANFI BRUNELLO DI MONTALCINO 2012

DOCG

TASTING NOTE: A textbook Brunello, mingling

cherry and berry fruit with bitter almond, iron,

sanguine and tobacco notes. Well-structured

and harmonious, this should rein in the tannins

with a few years of aging. Best from 2020

through 2033. Score:

LE VOLTE DELL’ORNELLAIA 2015

IGT Toscana

(Tenuta dell’Ornellaia)

TASTING NOTE: A blend of 67%Merlot, 20%

Cabernet Sauvignon and 13% Sangiovese,

this Le Volte is a bit like a sidekick to the iconic

Supertuscan Ornellaia. It offers lovely notions

of evergreen bough, currants, blackberry and

spice box on an elegant, sleek, polished frame.

The finish is structured and balanced, and the

length impressive. Savour now through 2030

with roasted or braised meats. (Vintages panel,

TOMMASI AMARONE DELLA

VALPOLICELLA CLASSICO 2013

DOCG

TASTING NOTE: Bright dark redwith a pale

amber tinge at the rim. Ripe aromas and flavors

of red cherry and aromatic spices. Offers a

decadent, luscious mouthfeel with soft tannins,

but also a touch of alcohol-derived warmth.

The finish is long and savory. Though not the

most complex Amarone Tommasi has ever

made, it has a lovely easyto drink qualityfor such

bigwine and is very hard to resist in its candied,

opulent personality. Drinking window: 2019-

2025. Score:

BORSAO TRES PICOS GARNACHA 2015

DO Campo de Borja

TASTINGNOTE: Opaque ruby. Powerful aromas

of black currant and candied cherry pick up

incense, vanilla and exotic spice nuances with

air. Deeply concentrated dark berry and spice-

cake flavors are complicated by notes of smoky

minerals and floral pastilles, while a subtle

peppery quality adds spiciness. Supple tannins

give shape to the very long, smoke-tinged finish,

where the floral note echoes strongly. Drinking

window: 2019-2026. Score:
