2009 La Fortuna Brunello di Montalcino
Review Date: 7-7-2014
We enjoyed sampling this latest release from La Fortuna not only because it's so darn tasty but also due to the fact that we know so many of our customers will simply love it. Thanks to some flavorful concentrated fruit, mild acidity and rounded tannins, this silky smooth Brunello is ready to open and drink. Delicious.

2009 Baricci Brunello di Montalcino
Review Date: 7-7-2014
Baricci Brunello is an on-going staff and customer favorite and we're excited that the 2009 has finally hit our sales floors. Considering the number of Brunelli priced well north of $50, this pure expression of Sangiovese is a must-buy for fans of Tuscan reds. While this classically styled, understated gem is approachable now it will certainly improve with a year or two in the cellar if you can wait that long.

2010 Seghesio Barolo
Review Date: 7-7-2014
Exceptional vintages like 2010, truly bring out the best in elegant Barolos like those of Aldo and Riccardo Seghesio. This beauty from the hills of Monforte combines the richness of fruit and overall depth of the vintage with skillful winemaking and the result is a Barolo brimming with flavor, polished tannins and an incredible price/value ratio. A Barolo of this quality under $30 is simply a steal.
