Cantine Pellegrino Passito de Pantelleria 2015

Cantine Pellegrino Passito de Pantelleria 2015: Feito com Muscat de Alexandria. Vinho bem gostoso, com aromas de casca de laranja, cointreau e especiarias. Bem aromático! Em boca, ótima acidez equilibrando o dulçor. Vinho vibrante e com final longo. Lembra bons Moscatéis portugueses, mas tem o acento italiano. Muito bom com cheesecake de Damasco. Comprei na Wine, por um preço muito bom. Atualmente custa 88 pilas. Vale a pena.

Chryseia 2014: Um monstro!

Estou devagar com o blog... O tempo está curto. Mas tenho apreciado grandes vinhos, como este Chryseia 2014, ofertado pelo Caião. Sou fã dos Chryseia, que sempre me dão grande prazer. Este 2014 está uma beleza. Cor escura, instransponível, e aromas riquíssimos que incluem notas florais, achocolatadas, de kirsch, framboesa, azeitona preta e especiarias. Em boca, intenso, com ótima acidez e camadas de taninos, que devem se arredondar lindamente com anos de adega. O vinho têm grande persistência e final mineral e com notas especiadas (alcaçuz). Um grande vinho, que embora novo, já pode ser apreciado após um tempo de decanter. Tem muitos anos pela frente. Só como informação, este 2014 foi top 100 da Wine Spectator, com 94 pontinhos bem atribuidos.
