Critic Notes

The 2015 Aconcagua Costa Pinot Noir was cropped from a dry and warm year that resulted in an earlier harvest. It was sourced from vines in the Aconcagua Costa appellation at some 12 kilometers from the Pacific Ocean that were planted between 2005 and 2009 on volcanic and schist (slate) soils. It fermented with indigenous yeasts and spent 11 months in French oak barrels, and only 10% were new. They harvested quite early in this warm vintage (not as early as the super hot 2017, the earliest harvest in the recent history of Chile). There's very little impact from the oak, a touch of earth and a core of red fruit, quite varietal and clean. The palate shows fine tannins and very supple flavors. Delicious cool climate Pinot. 20,393 bottles were filled in February 2016. Apr 2017, www.robertparker.com

Solaia Vertical with Antonio Galloni, Piero Antinori and Renzo Cotarell
The evening started with Piero Antinori explaining how Solaia first came about, how it was effectively the result of a very lucky accident, much in the same way as Champagne. In 1978, the vines used to make Antinori’s Tignanello produced an unusually high yield of Cabernet Sauvignon. Rather than waste this, or blend it into the other wines, they decided ...
