Pauillac 4th Growth Classification (MAGNUM FORMAT 150cl)
"after an hour it transformed in the glass. A rather one-dimensional nose that puts on weight: iron rust, dried blood, becoming a little farmyardy. Reminds me of a Cabernet Franc rather than Sauvignon. The palate is thin and insipid at first, but again it improves with tobacco and cigar box notes. Moderate weight, with a savory finish. Lacks vigour but this would surprise any unsuspecting tasters - as long as you give it a chance a drink the whole bottle. ", WIne Journal 2004

Margaux, 1er Grand Cru Classe
*** 93-95 Points - Wine Journal ***
"A sensational bottle that simply defied every rule about Bordeaux. Intense liquorish, cherry liqueur nose: very rich. Thick exotic, rounded palate with super-ripe Merlot. Reminds me of a Petrus! Very complex with spicy, fleshy finish. This bottle is high-toned, succulent and quite delicious. Beyond my wildest expectations. " Neil Martin, Wine Journal 2004

"Aromas of raisin and coffee. Taste corresponds to aromas, but adds fresh mint and nuts. Sweet, but with balancing acidity. Complex.
By far the best of the few Madeiras I have tasted. (92 points)
Near perfect with tiramisu and desserts made with cream and dried fruits.

La Crocetta - Tommasi Giovanni
"Recioto," as in "Recioto della Valpolicella," refers to a dessert wine made from grapes that were dried on mats after picking. This process turns the grapes closer to raisins, concentrating the flavors. The wines are lovely and taste how you'd expect raisins-turned-wine to taste, rich and sweet.
