It is austere and nuanced. ... Read more

This is the best Chardonnay-wine that NJ-Wines has tasted so far this year. Diora La Splandeur du Soleil Chardonnay 2019 is a dry, flavourful, full-bodied, fruity and nuanced wine.

Col d'Orcia Brunello di Montalcino 2016 is a really good wine that comes from the appellation Brunello di Montalcino and that really wins on a two hour long aerating (decanting). It is austere and nuanced, has a very good tannin structure, wonderful aroma richness and a very long, dry and spicy aftertaste. Aroma: tobacco, black tea, ... Read more
