April 2021: 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

 

Mars 2021: Edi Simcic, Fojana, Sauvignon, 2016 (38 EUR when purchasing in the winery) white dry wine, Goriska Brda, Primorje, Slovenia, 4,5 NJP of 5,0 NJP (95 points of 100 points) (01-03-2021 by Nenad Jelisic)

So, I wrote in my notes when I visited Edi Simcic's winery and tasted this wine in July 2019. “Rock and Roll continues. A big and very complex wine. Buttery and rich in minerals.

This is the best Late Bottled Vintage-port wine that I have tasted so far. And I have tasted many. This applies to both Churchill's Late Bottled Vintage and Late Bottled Vintage of all other port wine producers. It is unbelievable that five vintages in a row of one and the same wine got 4,0 NJP or more of the possible 5,0 NJP (2012: 4,0 ... Read more

After many tasted Amarone-wines in the price range 160 SEK to 500 SEK during the last twelve months, here finally comes one that gets more than 3,0 NJP out of 5,0 NJP (more than 80 NJP out of 100 NJP). All the other tasted Amarone-wines in this price range got 0,0 NJP to 1,5 NJP. In addition, their quality varied from bottle to ... Read more
