2014 La Massa "La Massa" Toscana Top Pick!
2014 La Massa "La Massa" Toscana

91 points James Suckling: "Silky and savory red with light chocolate, cedar and berry character. Medium body, fine tannins and a flavorful finish. Subtle and pretty. Drink now or hold. Delicious." (7/2016) 90 points Wine Spectator: "Warm tones of ripe cherry, loam and sweet spice give way to a dense, muscular structure in this solid red. Succulent and long. Enjoy this while the fruit is still present. Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now through 2020. (BS)" (3/2017)

2011 Felsina "Fontalloro" Toscana (Elsewhere $55) Top Pick!
2011 Felsina "Fontalloro" Toscana (Elsewhere $55)

95 points James Suckling: "Aromas of dark chocolate, berries, toasted nuts and vanilla bean follow through to a full body, firm tannins and a juicy finish. Lots of intense, beautiful fruit. Tight, layered red. All there. Better in 2017." (11/2014) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2011 Fontalloro is a pure expression of Sangiovese with fruit sourced from the Chianti Classico area and the Colli Senesi area. It ages in new and once-used barrique for up to 22 months. Aromas flow with authority, spanning a large swath of fruit and oak-related attributes. The best part, however, is the aromatic layering: Slices of br ...Read More »

2014 Antinori "Tignanello" Toscana

94 points James Suckling: "Really pretty aromas of currants and roses follow through to a medium body, firm and silky tannins and a fresh finish. Very well done for 2014 and a wonderful Tignanello to drink now or later. Better in 2019." (8/2017) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tignanello has this amazing ability of always being, well, Tignanello. Its very DNA makes it among the most distinctive and recognizable wines in the world. I'm happy to report that this is also the case for the 2014 Tignanello that faced very different growing conditions compared to most.

2012 Amantis "Birbanera" Montecucco

This is a producer to watch. Bernardetta Tacconi’s winery, called Amantis, is situated on the south side of the Orcia River in Southern Tuscany; the Orcia is the southern boundary of Brunello di Montalcino. The 1990s saw an incredible land boom in this region, which is called Montecucco. Folks were hoping it could be the next Brunello, with vineyards at decidedly lower prices. Amantis' "Birbanera" Montecucco Rosso sure packs a lot of ripe Sangiovese and seductive spice aroma and flavors into an affordable and delicious bottle. Primarily Sangiovese the bl... Read More »

2013 Antinori "Guado al Tasso" Bolgheri Superiore (Previously $95.00)

97 points James Suckling: "This is a very sleek and racy wine with lots of stone, white pepper and fresh rosemary character. Then takes off with dried ripe fruits such as currants and blueberries. Dark chocolate too. This a real mouthful yet remains agile and powerful. Linear and long finish. Great precision. Best ever from Guado al Tasso?" (7/2016) 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This is a fantastic wine. The 2013 Bolgheri Superiore Guado Al Tasso reveals soaring aromas of dark fruit, plum, blackberry, savory spice, tobacco and leather. The results are seamless, harmonious and generous in intensity.

2015 Ferrero "Pepita" Rosso di Toscana

I've always loved this wine ever since we helped create it. Pablo Harri the winemaker and husband of the eponymous Claudia Ferrero had planted a vineyard just south across the river from their estate in Montalcino with 34% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot, 16% Montepulciano and 17% Alicante grapes. Initially he produced 100% varietals from each that were good and even well scored with the critics, but they were impossible to sell. We were all sitting at a table at the winery when I thought what if we just blend them all together, so I grabbed some glasses... Read More »

2014 Sette Ponti "Crognolo" Toscana

93 points James Suckling: "Bright and aromatic with rose, blueberry and currant character. Medium to full body, very fine tannins and a beautiful finish. Such finesse and beauty. Impressive for the vintage." (7/2016) 91 points Wine Spectator: "A rich, round version, boasting cherry, plum and earth aromas and flavors. Balanced, turning grainy in texture on the finish, where spice accents emerge. (BS)" (11/2016) Vinous: "Sette Ponti's 2014 Crognolo is an attractive Sangiovese/Merlot blend.

2012 Felsina "Fontalloro" Toscana

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Fontalloro (100% Sangiovese) is a stunning expression and delivers the high quality we have come to expect of this celebrated IGT Toscana wine in a less important vintage. Careful work has been done here to ensure the high quality of fruit. The Fontalloro vineyard is located on the border of the Chianti Classico and the Chianti Colli Senesi appellations. Many have called upon Fèlsina to change the wine's status to Chianti Classico Gran Selezione, but technically it can't be because of much of the vineyard is located outside the denomination limi ...Read More »

2015 Val delle Rose "Aurelio" Toscana (Pre-Arrival)

95 points James Suckling: "A glorious red with intense and focused blackberry character and hints of wet earth. Bark and chocolate, too. Full body, layered and dense. A great wine. 100% Merlot. Drink in 2020 but already fascinating." (8/2017) K&L Notes: Modeled after the brilliant Merlots of Tuscany (or top-tier Right Bank blends from Bordeaux), this is a poster child for the remarkable quality and value to be found in Tuscany's superlative 2015 vintage.

Full body, ultra-fine and firm tannins and a beautiful fruit and mineral undertone. Tight and substantial. So layered. Another example of finesse and beauty here with this pure merlot. Better in 2018." (8/2015) 97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Galatrona pretty much sold out in pre sales before it's official release last year.

2014 Antinori "Tenuta Guado al Tasso Il Bruciato" Toscana

Vinous: "The 2014 Bolgheri Il Bruciato, the entry-level wine from Antinori's Guado al Tasso property, is powerful, juicy and intense. Then again, Antinori was extremely severe in 2014. The Cont'Ugo and Matarocchio will not be bottled at all, while production of Guado al Tasso is down sharply. This is an absolutely delicious wine for the year within its relatively modest (by Bolgheri standards) price range. (AG)" (11/2016) Wine Spectator: "A bright, pure version, this red evokes cherry, currant and spice flavors, with well-integrated, if dusty, tannins lining the finish. Firm but ha ...Read More »

2013 Isole e Olena "Cepparello" Toscana

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Hands down beautiful, The 2013 Cepparello is a creation of stunning elegance and balance. A pure expression of Sangiovese, this wine undergoes a sophisticated oak regime that sees ageing in various barrel sizes and barrique of various ages. It lives 18 months of its life in French and 3% American oak before being released. This vintage (that is cooler compared to 2012 and 2011) delivers an exceptionally soft and mellow bouquet with slightly sweet sensations of ripe cherry and fragrant blue flower. Soft tones of spice and cinnamon bring up the rear. The w ...Read More »

Full body, extremely tight and chewy with a long and intense finish. The tannins are fantastic - so polished. Focused and beautiful. Mineral undertone with ash and hot stone highlighting the dark fruits. It goes on for minutes. Needs three or four years to come together.

Phenomenal layers of focused fruit and polished velvety tannins. This is the Galatrona that everyone has been waiting for. It's the vintage that shows depth and power yet wonderful finesse and focus.

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Here's a wine of power, determination and confidence—as far as first impressions go. The 2007 Bolgheri Sassicaia leaves little hidden behind the curtain. It presents a frank and straightforward array of bold fruit, spice, leather and tobacco-like aromas that emerge from the bouquet with energy and force. The aromas are complete and genuine. The palate, however, offers more space for interpretation and review. It is finessed and nuanced, thus requiring more time to fully comprehend and appreciate.

Rosemary, sage, plums and black cherry notes meld into graphite, crushed rocks and a host of other more mineral-inflected nuances. Beautifully persistent and chiseled in the glass, the 2010 is ultimately all about energy. This is going to be a fascinating vintage to follow. (AG)" (10/2015) 94 points James Suckling: "The 2010 Sassicaia was just released and it's an outstanding bottle. I think that people are going to love this newest Sass.

2009 Isole e Olena "Cepparello" Toscana

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Cepparello is gorgeous. It brings together the radiance and ripeness of a warmer year with the medium-bodied structure of a cooler vintage. Today the 2009 is a bit reticent and appears headed for a period of dormancy. From time to time hints of its ultimate potential come through in attractive layers of dark red fruit. The rich, textured finish bodes well for the future. Paolo De Marchi describes 2009 as a year with a cold spring and a hot summer that also brought hail in early August.

2013 San Giusto a Rentennano "Percarlo" Toscana (Pre-Arrival)

98 points Vinous: "A wine of extraordinary finesse, the 2013 Percarlo is utterly magnificent. Creamy and beautifully layered in the glass, the 2013 speaks to finesse more than the power and explosiveness that is often found here. With time in the glass, the mid-palate fleshes out and the flavors gain in intensity and darkness. When young, Percarlo is often forbiddingly tannic, but the gradual move towards larger format barrels and casks has, among other things, given the wine much more textural elegance. I can't wait to see how it ages. This is one of the most complete and ...Read More »

Ornellaia shows its pedigree here. Better in 2019."

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Ornellaia caresses the palate with layers of seamless, radiant fruit. Sweet red berries, mocha, flowers, new leather and spices are some of the many notes that are layered in this sumptuous, totally beautiful wine. The 2009 stands out for its silky tannins and phenomenal overall balance. This is one of those wines that will probably enjoy a long drinking window. There is little question the ability to blend grape varieties was a huge help in this vintage. In my opinion, that is the main reason Ornellaia is a slightly more complete wine than Mass ...Read More »

2009 Fontodi "Flaccianello della Pieve" Toscana

95 points James Suckling: "A structured red with polished tannins and subtle vanilla, chocolate and currant character on the nose and palate. Full body, with integrated tannins and a compacted palate. Builds on the palate. Muscular and intense. Needs until 2015 to soften. Try it then." (11/2014) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Flaccianello della Pieve is a bit of a shock to the palate after 20+ older vintages. Still, it is impossible to miss the wine’s striking purity and finesse. Today the 2009 is a bit of a brute, but it should mellow out over the next 5-7 years as the tannins start to soften. Firm tann ...Read More »

2015 Tua Rita "Redigaffi" Toscana (Pre-Arrival)

2015 Fattoria Le Pupille "Saffredi" Maremma Toscana (375ml) (Pre-Arrival)

99 points James Suckling: "I love the currant and rosemary character of this wine. Some sage, too. Complex aromas that draw you in. Full body, extremely tight and chewy with a long and intense finish. The tannins are fantastic - so polished. Focused and beautiful. Mineral undertone with ash and hot stone highlighting the dark fruits. It goes on for minutes. Needs three or four years to come together. But a serious red all the way. *Ranked #9 on Top 100 of 2017*" (8/2017)
