96 points James Suckling: "This is the full treatment white from Italy and it always delivers. Aromas of cooked apple, cream, hints of toasted oak and peach. Full body, bright acidity, with tangy fresh fruit. Hints of yogurt and wood. Complex and truly great. Love the backbone of acidity that gives lovely form." (3/2016) 91 points Wine Spectator: "*Smart Buys* There's density to this minerally white, with flavors of kumquat, white cherry, graphite, chamomile and ground anise framed by rapierlike acidity that creates a sleek, almost lean impression on the zesty finish. Like a young Chablis, this should develop ...Read More »
A light straw yellow with greenish highlights in color, the wine shows a fruity nose with notes of citrus fruit, peaches, and pineapples. The structure and the acidity balance one another and the finish and aftertaste are lively and persistent. This Orvieto is a blend of 50% Grechetto, 25% Procanico, 25% Pinot Blanc and Viognier.
Monica Larner of eRobertParker.com writes: "The Sportoletti family founded their estate in the late 1970s and farm 26 hectares of vines in the Spello and Assisi area of Umbria. They work with consulting enologist Riccardo Cotarella."
91 points James Suckling: "This is very aromatic with dried-berry, mineral and floral character. Full body with firm tannins and a juicy finish. Lots of tannins but polished and chewy." (3/2015) Wine Enthusiast: "Blue flower, ripe black fruit, black pepper and cedar are just some of the aromas offered by this blend of Sangiovese, Merlot and Sagrantino. The palate features ripe black cherry, coffee, espresso, vanilla and grilled sage alongside bracing tannins. Drink after 2016." (2/2015) Wine Spectator: "A fresh red, offering fragrant herb and smoke notes, with flavors of tangy raspberry, wild strawberry, salumi and spi ...Read More »
Producer Note: "Dense ruby red colour. A rich and intense nose, featuring fruits with marked notes of citrus and wild berries. Subtle scents of aromatic herbs. Elegant and fresh on the palate. Very persistent and fruity finish."
Jancis Robinson: "Considered a riserva from a 45-year-old vineyard with ridiculously low yields of 30 hl. Vineyards in Montefalco and Bevagna, and the cantina is in Foligno. Beautiful mid ruby with the beginning of orange tinges. Savoury more than fruity at the moment and a little locked up on the nose. Yet it has a supple palate and not heavy at all. Rich tannins on the finish. Aged for at least 18 months in new barrique, which is pretty amazing, because you hardly notice it on the nose. It may have added more tannins, whereas with less new oak you would have had a reall ...Read More »
Vinous: "Medium red. Musky red fruits and herbs on the fresh but simple nose. Bright and energetic flavors of red fruits and minerals have good texture. Finishes herbal, offering big but polished tannins and very good length. A blend of Sangiovese (60%), Merlot (25%), Sagrantino (15% ). (ID)" (6/2016) Wine Spectator: "A pure note of dried black cherry is underscored by rich smoke and graphite in this fresh red, framed by chalky tannins. Medium- to full-bodied and balanced, with a firm finish of spice and dried thyme. Drink now through 2021. (AN)" (10/2016)
This is a 60% Sauvignon Blanc, 40% Sémillon blend from grapevines planted in soils rich in marine fossils and clay. The grapes are hand-harvested and the must is fermented in stainless steel tanks, leading to a clean expression of the unique terroir of this estate.
92 points James Suckling: "This is very polished and refined with polished tannins and a fruity finish. Full body and bright acidity. Drink now." (12/2013) 91 points Vinous: "Inky ruby. Deep nose of black cherry, aromatic herbs and vanilla. Dense and smooth, this gently tannic wine shows lovely fruit–acid–tannin balance for a Sagrantino wine. Long and perfumed on the bright floral finish. (ID)" (6/2016) K&L Notes: "Dark garnet with ruby tints. Mature nose of spice, menthol, mocha and black fruits with an elegant oak patina. Velvety, concentrated, massive and warm palate with refined tannins that are still present.... Read More »
93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Montefalco Sagrantino Collepiano offers a modern interpretation of a traditional wine once made by monks. The extra oak intensity leads to soft tones of chocolate, dark cherry and spice. This wine ages in barrique for 22 months. Each producer finds his or her own way to tame the brutal tannins of Sagrantino. One way Marco does this is with oak. (ML)" (8/2013) 92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Polished and spicy, this structured wine features aromas of leather, truffle, blackberry and savory herb. The juicy palate delivers layers of fleshy black plum, black cherry, freshly ground p ...Read More »
2001 Arnaldo Caprai "25 Anni" Sagrantino di Montefalco
Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2001 Arnaldo Caprai "25 Anni" Sagrantino di Montefalco (95RP, 93WE, 92WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2001 Montefalco Sagrantino 25 Anni, the selection but 50,000 bottles worth, is warmer, ampler, and decisively more powerful on the nose, richer and fuller in flavor than the regular bottling, but with a velvet in the texture that makes it already approachable. There are, nonetheless, easily 15 years of exceptional drinking ahead. (DT)" (04/2006)
