2010 Fanti Sant'Antimo Sassomagno
Review Date: 3-20-2014
From the town of Sant'Antimo ( known for its famous Abbey, a Benedictine monastery situated in the province of Siena). This is old world wine; dark fruit, leather, baking spices and coffee beans suggest that this wine will offer its pleasure over the next few years.

2012 Blason Cabernet Franc Isonzo
Review Date: 3-20-2014
It’s back! And as long as I can keep my co-workers at bay, you may be able to buy some for yourself. There is nothing simple about this cab/franc, it has the classic blueberry and herbaceous, plum and a hint of cola also a little white pepper on the finish. A staff and consumer favorite for many years now, this is a wine you will want to stock up on.

2011 Rocca di Montegrossi Chianti Classico (375ml)
Review Date: 3-20-2014
From the very user friendly 2011 vintage, this is one of our best values from Tuscany, black cherries, spicy oak, and a touch of earth. In the mouth, the wine is full-bodied, with fine concentration and a dry finish, with well integrated and soft tannins. Enjoy tonight and over the next couple years.

2008 Rocca di Montegrossi "San Marcellino" Chianti Classico (1.5L)
Review Date: 3-20-2014
This boasts a deep ruby/purple color in addition to sweet vanilla (from French oak), and lots of black cherries, raspberries, and currants with hints spice, Tuscan dust and minerals. There is a great texture on this full- bodied wine; it has a long, authoritative finish that combines power with elegance. So… pull the cork a few hours before you throw pork roast on the Q’ and enjoy the first days of spring.

2012 Ermacora Pinot Grigio Colli Orientali del Friuli
Review Date: 3-20-2014
This is our sixtieth of bringing Ermacora to you and in 1998 our price on the P/G was $11.99! We love beating that Euro down! and one of K & L’s best sellers since we started bringing them in. The perfect balance of acidity and tremendous aromatics, loaded with pear, apple, citrus and tropical fruit in an elegant, concentrated and superbly balanced wine. This is a Great wine for you to start the evening off with some pecorino and will work well with a first course of bruschetta or insalata mista.

2012 Ermacora Ribolla Gialla Colli Orientali del Friuli
Review Date: 3-20-2014
Ribolla Gialla enjoys a long history as one of Friuli's oldest indigenous vines, this extremely unusual wine would be worth buying solely on account of its very low price, but once you have tried this unusual grape varietals, you be back for more. The palate is intense and full with a supple body, echoing the wine's varietals character, exotic and honeyed bliss, floral notes, hints of flint and citrus, delivering several complex layers that transform as they evolve in the glass, the finish is dry with lots of acidity and pleasantly fresh.

2012 Ermacora Pinot Bianco Colli Orientali del Friuli
Review Date: 3-20-2014
Here is one our most popular wineries from Colli Orientali del Friuli, just a few miles from the Slovenian border. I just tasted all of the new Ermacora wines and the first two things I have written down are OMG & Wow! Perfectly balanced, this wine has incredible depth and concentration with focus, there is ripe apples and pears with minerals on the front palate and is very rich and creamy on the mid-palate, great length on the finish. Serve with grilled chicken diablo or a seafood risotto.

2012 Ermacora Friulano Colli Orientali del Friuli
Review Date: 3-20-2014
One of our BEST VALUE wines at K & L’s! As most of you know this wine from past vintages and it’s been too long since we had this wine in a let me just put it plain and simple IT ROCKS! This “Friulano” is full body ( a little crisper than past vintages) with ripe pear and red apple on the palate and on the very long finish I find a hint of almond, balanced with crisp acidity and is very aromatic with great length. This will work great with a cornucopia of vegetarian dishes.

2010 Castello di Monsanto Chianti Classico Riserva
Review Date: 3-10-2014
I met Fabrizio Bianchi from Monsanto in the early eighties and have been a fan and follower ever since. Mr. Bianchi is certainly one of the earliest pioneers in trying to change the image of Chianti as well as the grapes involved. Fabrizio is a big believer in Sangiovese, the main grape in Chianti and the backbone of most Tuscan wines. He was one of the first in Chianti to make wines 100% Sangiovese in the early '70s. The terroir of this region is evident and expressed consistently, spicy, mineral laden, complex fruits and good acidity. I love this 2010, but be warned! It will go quick!

2011 Poggiarellino Rosso di Montalcino
Review Date: 2-21-2014
This is drinking GREAT! Right now and will over the next couple of years (but only if you can keep your hands off it and keep some in the cellar). Here is a wine that packs a wallop and offers lots of bang for your buck all in one! Give this rosso about an hour to open up; on the palate you will find ripe strawberries and black cherries, a little bitter chocolate, and some toasty oak and vanilla, finishing with soft tannins.

2008 La Velona Brunello di Montalcino
Review Date: 2-21-2014
I gave this two stars: A beautifully layered, expressive wine bursting with sweet, ripe strawberries and black cherries intermingled with subtle earth and toasted oak notes, minerals and a hint of dark chocolate on the finish; round and ripe tannins and a long aftertaste. Decant for about an hour.
