Wine lover since 2001! My interest in wine began while touring the factory where they printed the LCBO VINTAGES magazine.

Over time, my passion for wine grew. Now, I am highly regarded by friends and colleagues as a resource for when they need a wine for that special occasion, be it an anniversary, birthday, wedding, gatherings at home, or when they want to impress their special friend or the In-Laws.

Combining my interest in the Internet/web/computers, you can find me at http://vintagewinepicks.blogspot.com where you will find more wine reviews, events and contests.

Masi Amarone Della Valpolicella Classico Campolongo Di Torbe 2009, Doc Bottle

Blend of 70% Corvina, 25% Rondinella, and 5% Molinara. Highly aromatic nose featuring earth, bing cherry, strawberry and sweet oak. It's full-bodied with silky tannins and very good structure. Captivating, oak-spiced aroma replays are intense on the palate. Very good fruit and oak balance, with some pleasing sweetness. The finish goes on and on. Enjoy over the next 15 years. Tasted Nov/2015.

Lovely, highly aromatic, perfumed nose of red cherry, berry, raspberry, and floral with some savoury underpinnings. It's medium-full bodied with lovely aroma replays supported by firm, grippy, and chalky tannins, and very good acidity. Excellent finish length. Drink this stylish wine after 5-7 years of ageing.

Solaia 2016, Igt Toscana Bottle
Solaia 2016, Igt Toscana

$458.00

Gorgeous, intense aromatics offer a mix of red berry, floral, and sweet spice with savoury undertones, all of which echoes nicely on the flavour profile. It's full-bodied with chiselled, well-defined tannins that have some chalky grip, while acids are fresh and balanced. Powerful, yet elegant with plenty of finesse. Excellent finish length. Still a bit tight at this stage and will benefit with 2-3 years ageing and drink over the next 20+ years. Birth year treasure. Sangiovese, Cabernet Franc, and Cabernet Sauvignon. Tasted Nov/2019.

Isole E Olena Cepparello 2016 Bottle
Isole E Olena Cepparello 2016
Tuscany, Italy
$113.95

A superb expression of Sangiovese, this has an elegant, highly aromatic nose of crushed cherry, cedar wood, rose floral, and purple fruits. The rich, powerful palate is medium-full bodied with big, structured, chalky tannins. It has very nicely balanced aroma replays that is more earthy with tar and leathery notes. Some mineral and graphite flavours arrive mid-palate and linger through to the finish, with excellent length. Needs 5-6 years and enjoy over the next 20 years. Tasted Nov/2019.
