K&L Notes

Praise from the Wine Advocate on the producer's 2011 vintage: "Caroline Pobitzer and Jan Hendrik Erbach have released an explosive set of new wines from their glorious biodynamic estate located one ridge over from Biondi-Santi's Il Greppo. I was absolutely blown away by the precision and the quality of these wines, and the Bassolino di Sopra is one of the finest wines I have ever tasted in Tuscany. I learned that Jan is a big stereo enthusiast and he owns state-of-the-art equipment for listening to his impressive collection of vinyl records. The room that houses his music library is (not coincidentally I must assume) the same room where he conducts his wine tastings. There are so many magical connects between auditory and olfactory perceptions, and they come together with seamless harmony in this fantastic space that Caroline and Jan have created... Each bottle has been fine-tuned and finessed to achieve optimal performance in terms of pitch, melody and rhythmic patterns. Each one has been carefully considered down to the smallest note."

    Holy Brunello! This is what Brunello is supposed to taste like. On the nose beautiful floral notes along with fresh cherries and blackberries, mesmerize the senses and allure you in. The palate offers it's own set of amazement with soft and velvety tannin, fresh integrated tannin and a long hypnotic finish. The rich wood is still pronounced, but with a couple years of aging should soften as well. Touches of plum, orange peel and cola can all be found swirling about, a testament to the quality of grapes. The vineyards are given the finest attention and are grown organic and bio-dynamically.
