2008 Elio Grasso "Ginestra - Casa Matè" Barolo
Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 2008 Elio Grasso "Ginestra - Casa Matè" Barolo (98RP, 98VN, 96ST, 95JS, 93WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Licorice, tar, menthol, spices and crushed rocks are some of the nuances that flow from the 2008 Barolo Ginestra Vigna Casa Mate. This dramatic, large-scaled Barolo impresses for its towering depth, complexity and sheer pedigree. Tar, menthol, licorice and spices wrap around the fleshy, deep finish. The Ginestra Vigna Casa Mate is considerably more powerful than the silkier Gavarini, but both wines represent the height of finesse in Nebbiolo. (AG)" (04/2012)

Of the 1978 Marcarini "Brunate" Barolo ,John Gilman writes: "I love the 1978 Marcarini Brunate and this most recent bottle was another stellar example of both the vintage and this great terroir. The beautiful nose wafts from the glass in a vibrant and fully mature mélange of red and black cherries, a touch of spiced meats, raw cocoa, sous bois, camphor, fresh almond and oregano in the upper register. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, complex and into its apogee, with a rock solid core of sweet fruit, great soil inflection, outstanding focus and grip and a very long, well-balanced and modestly tannic finish. Great juice in its prime, but with decades and decades of life still ahead of it. (Drink between 2014-2055)" (08/2014)

1979 Lungarotti "Rubesco" Torgiano
Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1979 Lungarotti "Rubesco" Torgiano. Eric Asimov of New York Times delighted in these wines when tasting a vertical spanning the 1966-1982 vintages: "But Giorgio Lungarotti, it turns out, was the producer that first gave Umbrian reds an identity, back when he first started making wines in the 1960’s. And the best of Lungarotti’s reds is the Rubesco Riserva. Rubesco is a proprietary name. The wine itself is 70 percent Sangiovese, the grape of Chianti and Montalcino, and 30 percent cCnaiolo, a Tuscan grape that was traditionally blended with Sangiovese in Chianti, but is no longer a required component, though some producers still stick with it. All the grapes come from the Monticchio vineyard, and the wine is sometimes called Vigna Monticchio. The wine is aged in barrels for two years and then for even longer, three years, in bottles, meaning it is not released until five years after the vintage. The result is a spicy, intense yet elegant wine that is highly ar

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino comes across as tightly wound and inward at this stage. With time in the glass the wine’s inner perfume gradually comes to life, even if this remains a reticent Brunello within the context of the vintage. Still, it is impossible not to admire the inner sweetness of the fruit and the impeccable polish of the tannins. All this needs is time, maybe a little more than usual in this vintage.

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2006 Fuligni Brunello di Montalcino (96JS, 96RP, 96ST, 96VN, 94WS, 93WE). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Fuligni’s 2006 Brunello di Montalcino is one of the stars of the vintage. Sweet floral notes weave through a core of expressive red fruit as the wine opens up in the glass. The 2006 shows incredible purity and finesse, most notably in its silky, polished tannins. This isn’t a blockbuster, but rather a wine that conquers through its sheer finesse. The wine spent 27 days on the skins. The volume and weight are influenced by the modern school, everything else is traditional all the way. The 2006 is the first vintage in which the percentage of French oak has been dropped to 25%, which has allowed the purity of the fruit to shine through to a degree that I have seldom, if ever, seen here. Rain during June naturally lowered yields and may partly explain why Fuligni’s 2006 is so phenomenal. Simply put, readers won’t want to miss this superb Brunello. Anticipate

The elegant profile belies the serious structure underneath, which should allow this red to develop over the next 15 to 20 years. Offers fine berry fruit and a minerally aftertaste.

Freshly cut flowers, minerals, licorice and juicy black cherries all come together beautifully in this gracious, utterly impeccable Brunello. With time in the glass the wine puts on weight, but the tannins retain considerable elegance and finesse. Sublte hints of oak linger on the impeccable finish. This is a fabulous effort from Talenti.

Intensely perfumed yet also towering in stature, the 2004 is simply magnificent. The main difference between the white label and red label is finesse in the tannin, which is a bit less polished here. But that is only because there is a comparison. Taken on its own, the Falletto is one of the very finest wines of the vintage. Elegance meets power. With a little advance aeration, the 2004 can be enjoyed young, but it is frankly best left alone for another few years, especially for readers who only own a few bottles.

Bid on this bottle of 2003 Giacomo Conterno "Cascina Francia" Barolo (94RP, 94VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2003 Barolo Cascina Francia is a remarkable wine for the vintage. This deep, powerful Barolo reveals awesome richness and an almost liqueur-like quality to its fruit that is balanced by the chalky mineral notes that provide freshness on the finish and help convey an impression of notable balance. In 2003 there is no Monfortino, and the Cascina Francia surely benefits from the addition of that juice which is mostly felt in the wine’s depth. Resisting the temptation to harvest too early, Roberto Conterno waited until October 8 to start picking in his Cascina Francia vineyard, long after most producers had already brought the fruit in.

2003 Gaja "Sori San Lorenzo" Langhe
Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2003 Gaja "Sori San Lorenzo" Langhe (95RP, 93ST, 92WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A slightly deeper hue than the Costa Russi, this has more intensity on the nose with macerated black cherries, a touch of leather, sloes, dark honey and dried orange peel. Complex and cerebral. The palate is medium-bodied, again with very fine tannins, symmetrical with superb poise and harmony. Grippy finish with layers of pure black cherries, raspberry liqueur and a touch of creme de menthe. Wonderful length and precision. My personal favourite of Gaja’s Barbarescos. Drink 2015-2025.
