La rivista di vino più importante al mondo inizia il conto alla rovescia: Wine Spectator's Top Ten Wine's of 2008

Non so quanti di voi diano credito a Wine Spectator e alle sue valutazioni, però è un dato di fatto che per moltissimi la rivista viene considerata una sorta di Bibbia enologica e un 100/100 attribuito ad un vino può spostare grandissimi interessi economici.

Seguite con me il countdown per scoprire la bottiglia dell'anno

Al numerto dieci (vorrei avere la voce del supertelegattone) abbiamo:

Seghesio Zinfandel Sonoma County 2007

93 points / $2468,000 cases made California

The Seghesio family has been making wine for a century in northern Sonoma County and farms more than 400 acres of Zinfandel in Alexander and Dry Creek valleys. They make a range of vineyard-designated Zinfandels, such as Home Ranch and Cortina, and a bottling from the oldest vines. But for this Sonoma County 2007, winemaker Ted Seghesio tapped his diverse grape sources for a more widely available, well-priced wine. Aged 11 months in 75 percent American oak, it's complex, with a supple texture and a spicy finish.

Mentre al numero nove....suspance:

Mollydooker Shiraz McLaren Vale Carnival of Love 2007 (terribile etichetta!!!!!!)

95 points / $902,596 cases made Australia

Carnival of Love is one of the few great Aussie Shirazes priced less than $100. Mollydooker owners Sarah and Sparky Marquis buy the grapes from the Gateway Vineyard, a property planted in 2000. They aim for 4 tons per acre from the site, but severe drought in 2007 reduced yields by nearly half. The wine finished primary fermentation in barrel to better integrate the flavors and tannins of the 100 percent new American oak.
