One Second Thought for Good Wine

別笑上了年紀的人常埋怨新不如舊,有時真的如此。

如果覺得80年代中期以前的西施佳雅比近代好喝,那不出奇。原因可能是酒不夠熟,也可能因為從前西施佳雅其中最好的一塊莊園給業主收回了。

全球絕大多數釀酒師一致公認,美樂 (梅鹿)葡萄在義大利托斯卡納馬雷馬區種植的最出色,在六零年代崛起的西施佳雅就是租賃了馬雷馬區的莊園。人怕出名豬怕肥,西施佳雅成名後業主Tua家族在80年中期不再續約,把葡萄園收回另起爐灶,邀請當時得令,在名莊Frescobaldi 效力的釀酒師加盟,以家族的名義自己灌瓶。旗艦標就是馬雷馬區的Redigaffi, 馬雷馬的純美樂。

且看大師 James Suckling 的評語:
澎湃的胡椒和辣椒香,堅果,蜜蠟,黑漿果和楊草莓乾,隱隱的肉香和黑橄欖。酒體豐滿,極其濃郁,單寧絲滑綿長,餘韻回味。層次豐富,結構嚴謹,質感濃密。十分可口。最後還有強烈的巧克力味。需要3-4年的樽齡。釀製的很精彩的一個年份。純美樂葡萄。

You may hear seniors always complain old stuffs are better than new. Sometimes it is the case.

If you doubt the earlier vintages of Sassicaia before the mid 80's seems more delicious. That might not be surprising. Perhaps it is because the wine is not aged enough. Or it is because one of the best plot of vineyard was no longer rented to Sassicaia.

Most of the winemakers in the world agree that Maremma of Tuscany in Italy planted the best Merlot. When Sassicaia rose in the 60's they rented the vineyard in Maremma. After they became word renowned, the landlord Tua family no longer extend the lease. They hired top wine maker from Frescobaldi to make wine and bottle their own label under their name Tua Rita. Their flagship label is Redigaffi, pure merlot from Maremma.

Super good price in the world : HKD1228 /btl Minimum 6 bottles

Let's see how James Suckling comment:

Compelling aromas of chili pepper, nuts, beeswax and dark fruits with dried strawberries. Hints of black olives and meat. Full body with extremely thick, silky tannins and a long, flavorful finish. This is layered and so structured, with fabulous length and density. Savory. Chocolate powder at the end. This needs at least three or four years of bottle age. A triumph for the vintage. Pure merlot.
