La Stella Fortissimo, 2011


158We spent the week revisiting newer vintages of wines we reviewed with high praise in the past. This pick has held up beautifully; still strong, assertive, gobs of fruit and lusciously food friendly. We drank it down with a sharp flavoured cheese souffle and steamed vegetables. Not much to add to the first review, the 2009, here, except that given the years gone by the (expensive) price tag has held steady. Still wonderful, still too much money.
