Zenato, Amarone della Valpolicella, Classico, 2019 (43 EUR/46 USD in Sweden) red dry blend wine, Veneto, Italy, 5,0 NJP of 5,0 NJP (100 points of 100 points) (15-04-2024 by Nenad Jelisic)

It seems that since the 2017 vintage, which got 3,0 NJP of 5,0 NJP (80 points out 100 points), Zenato has started making better and better Amarone wines. The 2018 vintage got 4,0 NJP of 5,0 NJP (90 points of 100 points) and now this wonderful 2019 vintage get 5,0 NJP of 5,0 NJP (100 points of 100 points). This is great news ... Read more

 

Argirio, Podernuovo a Palazzone, 2018 (36 EUR/39 USD in Sweden) red dry wine, Tuscany, Italy, 5,0 NJP of 5,0 NJP (100 points of 100 points) (21-03-2024 by Nenad Jelisic)

It is extremely difficult to find a good 100% Cabernet Franc-wine. Better to say, it is almost impossible. The Swedish wine importer Solid Wines succeeded in this almost impossible task. And it seems that for Podernuovo a Palazzone's owner and winemaker Giovanni Bulgar is not a big problem to create such a wine. NJ Wines ... Read more

Fincas Valdemar, Gran Reserva, Edición Especial, 2015 (22 EUR/23 USD in Sweden) red dry blend wine, Rioja, Spain, 5,0 NJP of 5,0 NJP (100 points of 100 points) (2023-09-19 by Nenad Jelisic)

Wow! What a fantastic Rioja-wine. It is absolutely fabulous. One of the best that I have tasted so far. It is spicy and complex in the aroma, while it is austere and nuanced in the flavour. The aroma is characterized by coconut, milk chocolate, tobacco, vanilla, dried prunes, dried dark cherries and dill. The flavour is characterized by dried ... Read more

It is absolutely incredible that four consecutive vintages of Churchill's Late Bottled Vintage get 5,0 NJP of 5,0 NJP (100 points of 100 points). If this vintage is compared to the three previous brilliant vintages, what characterizes it is a fabulous acidity and fabulous tannins. When I wrote about the 2016 vintage, I wrote “This is ...

Vino Kupljen, Loona, 2019 (15 EUR when purchasing in the winery) white dry wine, Mihailovici Kristal, Jeruzalem, Stajerska, Slovenia, 5,0 NJP of 5,0 NJP (100 points of 100 points) (07-09-2021 by Nenad Jelisic)

 

Jesus Christ what a wine! It has everything that a fabulous white wine should have, i.e. wonderful freshness and minerality, complexity, fruitiness and concentration. And all these aforementioned components live in a wonderful symbiosis in the wine. Better to say the balance between acidity, minerality, fruitiness and concentration is ... Read more

 

Tenuta Tre Gemme, Montepulciano d’Abruzzo, Riserva, 2015 (30 EUR when purchasing in the winery) red dry wine, Abruzzo, Italy, 5,0 NJP of 5,0 NJP (100 points of 100 points) (03-04-2021 by Nenad Jelisic)

During my almost 40 years as a wine lover and more than 30 years as a wine connoisseur, I have never tasted better Montepulciano d’Abruzzo-wine. It is absolutely fabulous. Bravo Tenuta Tre Gemme! That a wine from Montepulciano-grape can reach such heights like this wine is absolutely incredible. Tenuta Tre Gemme Montepulciano ... Read more
