2006 Bartolo Mascarello Barolo
Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2006 Bartolo Mascarello Barolo (96RP, 96ST). 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Mascarello’s 2006 Barolo boasts great purity and density in a round, harmonious expression of fruit that emerges from a mid-weight frame. Silky tannins frame the intensely fragrant, dark red fruit as this exceptionally elegant, refined Barolo shows off its pedigree. The finish is long, clean and refreshing, suggesting the wine has many years of very fine drinking in store for readers who are lucky enough to own it. Proprietor Maria-Teresa Mascarello describes 2006 as a hot year. The Nebbiolo harvest here began earlier than normal, on the 23rd of September, the same as 2005. That said, the 2006 Barolo has retained the classic, mid-weight style that readers have come to expect from Bartolo Mascarello." (02/10) 96 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar, Nov/Dec 09: "(bottled in August of 2009, with the 2007 barbera) Bright medium red. Captivating nose melds dark f

Bid on this bottle of 1967 Giacomo Conterno Barolo (94RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Giacomo Conterno's 1967 Barolo was awesome. It was similar to the Gaja in the depth of its fruit, but with a more balsamic profile of mint, leather, spices and tar. During this era Conterno sourced fruit from Monforte and Serralunga, and this Barolo revealed the heft that is the hallmark of those villages. Notwithstanding the wine’s masculinity, the finish was sweet, long and sublime. This was an exceptional bottle." (01/2009)

Next to the other wines of the vintage here, the Asili Riserva is defined by its stunning inner sweetness, soaring aromatics and silky tannins. One of the attributes all great wines share is their ability to stimulate all the senses, from the intellectual to the hedonistic. The 2004 Asili Riserva hits all the right spots and then some.

Bid on this magnum of 2004 Conterno Fantino "Sorì Ginestra" Barolo (1.5L) (OWC - 96RP, 96ST, 96VN, 93WS) in original wood. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Conterno-Fantino have once again produced one of the vintage’s finest wines with their stunning 2004 Barolo Sori Ginestra, which is just as impressive in bottle as it has been on the several occasions I have tasted it from barrel. This explosive, heady Barolo bursts onto the palate with seamless layers of ripe dark fruit, black cherries, menthol, cinnamon, pine and minerals, revealing profound depth and richness. It offers superb length, gorgeous, sweet tannins and a finish that lasts forever. Although it is a surprisingly accessible Sori Ginestra at this stage, I expect it will close down at some point in the near future. Readers who have an opportunity to taste this wine in the next few months should not hesitate to do so. This is a remarkable Barolo in every way. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024. (AG)" (12/2007)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The estate’s 2007 Barolo Ginestra Vigna Casa Mate is quite a bit fresher and firmer than the Gavarini. The exuberant personality of the vintage is also a bit more balanced and restrained. This is a beautifully layered, textured Ginestra Casa Mate endowed with endless layers of dark, mineral-infused, balsamic-tinged dark fruit, all of which flow through effortlessly to a long, sumptuous finish that lasts forever. The stunning bouquet, purity of the fruit and overall balance are simply breathtaking. The Ginestra Casa Mate will be a fascinating wine to follow over the coming years and decades.

Only produced in 2007, 2009 and 2011, this third edition shows towering aromas of sensuous dark fruit, leather and tobacco.

The greatest wine ever from here. " (12/2014)

2010 Tenuta dell'Ornellaia "Ornellaia" Bolgheri Superiore (OWC)
Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2010 Tenuta dell'Ornellaia "Ornellaia" Bolgheri Superiore (OWC - 97RP, 97VN, 97WE, 95JS, 94WS) in original wood. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Poured from the special anniversary bottle, the 2010 Bolgheri Superiore Ornellaia is a truly outstanding wine that leaves a lasting memory for those who are lucky enough to enjoy it. What stands out is the absolutely seamless-seamless-seamless (yes, it's worth repeating three times) integration of its many moving parts. The wine magically transitions from cherry, spice, chocolate and espresso in one melodic and continuous loop. It exudes balance and elegance over long, delicious minutes. It is profoundly impressive. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2030. Of all the grapevines planted on the Ornellaia estate, the 2010 vintage showed best results with Merlot, says Leonardo Raspini. Because the harvest was later than usual, the early-ripening grape enjoyed a slow and steady evolution. " (08/2013)

2010 Pieve Santa Restituta (Gaja) "Rennina" Brunello di Montalcino (OWC)
Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2010 Pieve Santa Restituta (Gaja) "Rennina" Brunello di Montalcino (OWC - 97RP, 95VN, 94JS, 93WS) in original wood. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "An outstanding surprise, the 2010 Brunello di Montalcino is a monumental wine. The Rennina single vineyard is said to be more feminine compared to the bolder fruit sourced in the nearby Sugarille cru. But in the 2010 vintage, you definitely get a compelling sense of power, density and extraction. What distinguishes the wine is the delicate mineral signature that appears through the thick texture of the fruit. It's like background music that gives cozy ambiance to an elaborately furnished ballroom. I consider the 2010 Rennina a masterpiece and, again, I just don't know how Angelo Gaja does it. He is the winemaker with the Midas touch. Truth be told, the wine does lack territory-driven typicity. But it's just so darn good, it hardly matters. It will continue its evolution for 10-20 years. Congratulations." (02/2015

1995 Brunello di Montalcino Tasting Lot
Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1995 Brunello di Montalcino Tasting Lot, including 1-bottle of 1995 Campogiovanni Brunello di Montalcino, 1-bottle of 1995 Fuligni Brunello di Montalcino (90ST), and 1-bottle of 1995 Poggio Antico Brunello di Montalcino (90RP, 90ST). Of the 1995 Fuligni Brunello di Montalcino,Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar writes: "Fresh, brilliant garnet of good depth. Powerful and penetrating on the nose, with considerable spice to accompany the plum and redcurrant fruitiness. Sustained red fruit flavors are sweet, fresh and shapely. Finishes with plush, elegant tannins. Another very fine effort from a house that has been a model of consistency since the 1983 vintage. But, as a long-time admirer of the work of owner Roberto Guerrini, professor of law at the University of Siena, I feel compelled to ask if he too might not consider doing himself a major favor by making a single Brunello di Montalcino and eliminating the few thousand bottles of Riserva, excellent

2007 Foradori "Granato" Vigneti delle Dolomiti
Bid on this 5-bottle lot of 2007 Foradori "Granato" Vigneti delle Dolomiti (94RP, 92JS, 92WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Ripe, silky tannins caress the palate as the 2007 Granato emerges from the glass. Crushed, flowers, raspberries and spices meld together beautifully in this mid-weight, gracious Granato. Today the aromas and flavors are quite primary, but the wine should harmonize to a greater extent with another year or two in bottle. Subtle notes of oak linger on the elegant, polished finish. This is another superb Granato from Elisabetta Foradori. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2022. Elisabetta Foradori continues to set a very high bar in Trentino and the rest of Italy, for that matter. The reds are the strengths among these new releases. (AG)" (02/2011)
