Vintage Port (SINGLE BOTTLE 75cl)
“This is a deep-coloured wine with faint brick hues, dominated by aromatic notes of mint cedar and tobacco box. It reveals the presence of spices such as pepper and cinnamon, ripe black fruits and slight chocolate hits, the result of an excellent maturation. On the palate it displays excellent structure, good quality tannins and a very well integrated acidity. The long finish of great complexity shows aromatic notes of cedar and mint, as well as ripe black fruits.”

Az. Agr. Sella
(DOC since 1979). Bramaterra is almost the only DOC of North Piemonte covering various comunes: it is produced in Masserano, Brusnengo, Roasio, Curino, Villa del Bosco, Lozzolo and Sostegno. Before the Second World War production volumes were higher than Barolo – only Roasio used to have 300 hectares and Bramaterra´s total might have been more than 2000 hectares.. It is one of Piemonte´s most curious wines: extremely difficult to find, but when you find a bottle it is always great!

89+ Points - Robert Parker
Dense ruby/purple, with an attractive, broad, plump nose of plums, raisins, prunes, black cherries, and some dusty earth notes, well-made, medium to full-bodied, with considerable corpulence, flesh, and structure, this is a denser, slightly more tannic wine than the 2001, but big, burly, and showing more finesse than it did prior to bottling. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2018.

Haut Medoc 5me Cru Classe
91 points Wine Spectator
Opulent red. Intense aromas of currants, cigar tobacco and berries. Full-bodied, with a solid core of silky tannins and a long finish. Well-made. Best after 2008. (3/2003)
90 points James Suckling
A wine at its peak now, with tobacco, berry and spice character. Some oyster shell as well. Full and decadent. Soft and silky-textured. Drink now. Needs decanting. (7/2013)
Changed hands in 1981 with only 20ha left of a large property. Still very deep with the merest hint of ruby and paleness at the rim. Very subtle nose - lures you in but there is no hint of overripeness here, rather a hidden message.
