2014 Tenuta San Guido "Guidalberto" Toscana (Elsewhere $45) Top Pick!
2014 Tenuta San Guido "Guidalberto" Toscana (Elsewhere $45)

94 points Decanter: "The second wine of Tuscan legend, Sassicaia. If you like Bordeaux, you will love this – a riper, modern take on the French style. The blend of 60% Cabernet and 40% Merlot aged in French and American oaks offers up ripe, almost sweet, fruits with layers of black cherry, blackcurrant, liquorice and spice. A luxurious mouthfeel with cocoa-dusted tannins make this a great food wine and is truly incredible value for the quality. Another winner from Tenuta San Guido." (12/2016) 92 points Wine & Spirits: "Guidalberto is lively and forward in the 2014 vintage, with scents of fresh rose peta ...Read More »

2011 Baricci Brunello di Montalcino

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Editors' Choice* Aromas suggesting underbrush, scorched earth, mature black-skinned fruit and a whiff of dried mint jump out of the glass. The big, chewy palate doles out mature Marasca cherry, graphite, chopped herb and dark cooking spice alongside firm, refined tannins. It’s absolutely delicious. (KO)" (5/2016) 92 points James Suckling: "This shows lots of mushroom, dried fruit, spice and walnut aromas and flavors. Full-bodied but agile and refined. Pure and balanced. Drink or hold." (10/2015) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "I was absolutely impressed with the 2010 Riserva released by Baricci at the same time as ...Read More »

2013 Cantine di Ora "Amicone" Rosso Veneto (Elsewhere $18)

Amicone is made from predominantly Corvina grapes (same grapes that go into Amarone) but are dried for a shorter period and on the vine not on mats like Amarone. The wine is fermented in stainless steel and then aged in French oak tonneaux for 8 months. The result is an easy drinking full-bodied red that has lots of rich soft, smooth texture.

2015 Torti Pinot Nero Bianco Oltrepo Pavese (Previously $17)

I met Dino and Patrizia Torti, a dynamic Father-Daughter winemaking team, at their winery in the hills of Oltrepo Pavese about 45 miles south of Milano. Pinot Noir or Pinot Nero in Italian has been used in Lombardia in the making of methode champenoise sparkling wines dating back into the 19th century, but only recently has there been a movement for the production of red wines. That might seem an odd introduction for a white wine but this one is made from red grapes! Pinot Noir vinified white (no skin contact), but wow what flavor! Bold, penetrating Pino... Read More »

2011 Sesta di Sopra Brunello di Montalcino (Previously $50)

92 points James Suckling: "Very fine and delicate with a dense and compacted palate, fine tannins with dark chocolate and stone undertones. Extremely elegant yet structure. Drink now or hold." (2/2016) 92 points Vinous: "The 2011 Brunello di Montalcino is quite pretty and expressive. Lifted, perfumed aromatics meld into bright red cherry and plum fruit. This is one of the more delicate wines of the vintage, and also one of the most expressive. The 2011 offers lovely balance for the vintage in an understated, mid-weight style that can be enjoyed pretty much upon release. Sweet red plum, cherry pit and ...Read More »

2011 Bellaria Brunello di Montalcino (Previously $35)

90 points James Suckling: "A wine with lots of berry, vanilla and cream aromas and flavors. Full-bodied, round and savory. Intense new wood but delicious all the same. Needs time to come together in the bottle: Drink in 2017." (2/2016)

2012 Terre del Palio Vino Nobile di Montepulciano (Previously $25)

Terre del Palio is located in Siena and exclusively produces wines from their 160 hectares of estate vineyards. Their Vino Nobile di Montepulciano is comprised of 90% Sangiovese with 5% of each Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. A long, controlled fermentation precedes the wine's 18 months in Slavonian oak barrels before bottling. Ruby red color hints at the plum and blueberry fragrance with rich tobacco and minerality. These characteristics carry through to the palate with brightness, elegance, and a satisfying finish.

2009 Vie Cave Malbec Maremma Toscana (Previously $27)

Though it's relatively unusual to find Italian Malbecs, the grape, in fact, is very well suited to the climate and soils of Maremma, the region best known for producing famed Super Tuscans such as Sassicaia and Ornellaia. Its tufo soils are so revered that they inspired the name Vie Cave, which is a nod to the early Etruscan roads carved into this volcanic rock. The 2009 vintage started wet and mild, but by harvest time, the grapes were beautifully ripe and balanced. The resulting Malbec is luxurious, but maintains a nice core acidity to make it food fri...

2012 Torti Barbera Oltrepo Pavese (Previously $18)

The Barbera grapes for this wine were grown in vineyards dating back to the early 19th century. It's a vibrant ruby red in the glass with a dry, full body. Thanks to the long growing season in this northern part of Italy, the wine develops gorgeous acid that makes it a perfect accompaniment to roasted and braised meats.

2012 Baricci Brunello di Montalcino (Pre-Arrival)

96 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* Enticing perfumed berry, violet, new leather and a truffle scents emerge in this textbook Brunello. On the savory, full-bodied palate, licorice, clove and chopped herb flavors accent a juicy core of ripe black cherry fruit. Firm, refined tannins provide structure. It’s already tempting but hold for even more complexity. Drink 2020-2032. (KO)" (2/2017) 94 points Wine Spectator: "Austere, with dusty tannins corralling the cherry, strawberry, earth and tobacco flavors. The bright acidity keeps this focused, lingering on the dry finish. Very tight, with a lot of savor ...Read More »

2012 Ettore Germano "Cerretta" Barolo (Previously $60)

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Aromas of ripe berry, brown cooking spice and a whiff of espresso lead the nose on this full-bodied red. The firmly structured palate offers juicy raspberry, black cherry and licorice alongside a backbone of assertive but noble tannins. Drink 2020 - 2032" (2/2017) Jancis Robinson: "Light bricky ruby. Refined red fruits and finely fragrant. Bone dry and super-fine tannins. Firm and spicy on the finish but still extremely elegant, the tannins a little chalky now. Mouth-wateringly fresh finish.

(8/2015) 90 points Wine Spectator: "Cherry, herb and spice flavors are allied to an elegant frame in this supple-textured red. Needs air to open and find balance, lingering with fruit and spice accents on the finish. Sangiovese, Canaiolo and Colorino. (BS)" (3/2016)

2012 Cascina Val del Prete "Carolina" Barbera d'Alba (Previously $45)

Cascina Val del Prete (valley of the priest) takes its name from the exiled Bishop of Asti who lived there in 1850. In 1977 Bartolomeo Roagna and his wife Carolina bought the farm "Val del Prete" where they had worked as sharecroppers. The first thing they did was replace some of the grain and fruit plantings with vines. The grapes are grown on south-facing slopes in a splendid natural amphitheater. Over the years they have increased the area under vine. Their sons, Mario and Luigi, have entered the family business to take care of the vineyards. Cascina ... Read More »

2013 Castello di Fonterutoli "Siepi" Toscana (Previously $100)

95 points James Suckling: "This is a wonderful follow-up to the superb 2012. Aromas are so intriguing with raspberry, blackberry and light toasted fruits. Some black tea. Full body, and very compacted. Toned and muscular tannins. Racy finish with bright acidity. Fascinating to taste (drink) now but this will be even better in 2019 and onwards." (5/2016) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Siepi is a knockout wine that hits all the senses with just the right level of complexity. The wine is soft, brooding, velvety and long in persistency. It is made with equal parts Merlot and Sangiovese and both grapes bring ...Read More »

2013 Cantina Valle Isarco "Sabiona" Kerner (Previously $45)

In case you are like most folks out there, and you have no idea what Kerner is, here's a little background: Kerner is a relatively new grape (developed in the 1960s) and is a cross between Riesling and the local red grape Schiava. Though something of a mongrel in terms of ancestry, in the right hands, such as those of the very capable people at Cantina Valle Isarco, it produces a full-bodied, un-oaked wine full of vibrant fruits, ethereal floral highlights and aging potential. A strong, spicy wine to enjoy with charcuterie and sausages or sashimi!

2010 Daniel Ricci "Terre del Timorasso" Colli Tortonesi Timorasso (Previously $50)

This is white wine for a red wine drinker. There is so much concentration and depth of flavor, intensity, complexity and downright deliciousness here, you'll have a hard time ever sipping on a light quaffing white wine ever again. Made from 100% Timorasso, a rare Piedmontese varietal grown in the Tortonesi hills near the Lombardy border, this wine's richness comes from extended skin and lees aging. Though not quite an orange wine, this can stand up to more substantial fare than your typical white.

2012 Aldo Conterno "Colonnello" Barolo (Previously $128)

95 points James Suckling: "Warmer aromas of cooked meat, ripe strawberry and fresh herbs. Full body, round and chewy tannins. Big and rich. Needs a year or two to soften. Solid." (3/2016) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Like the Barolo Bussia Cicala, the 2012 Barolo Bussia Colonnello steps out with heavy footing. You feel the weight of the vintage, yet the bouquet shows fewer of those brilliant aromatic accents that are so magnificently delivered in cooler vintages. The aromas are all there - wild berry, balsam herb, cola and licorice - but the intensity is somewhat muted. The wine also shows tightness and astring ...Read More »

2012 Aldo Conterno "Cicala" Barolo (Previously $128)

95 points James Suckling: "This is fantastic with cedar, strawberry, walnut and mineral aromas and flavors. Ultra-fine tannins and a clean finish. Balanced and refined. Why wait? But will be even better in 2018." (3/2016) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Barolo Bussia Cicala treads with larger, heavier footprints and this is what sets it apart from some of the profoundly finessed and graceful vintages of Barolo's glorious past (and future, we anticipate). The wine offers Nebbiolo-driven aromas of dark cherry, spice, tar, pressed violets and licorice, but the bouquet is a far way off from seamless integrati ...Read More »

2013 La Mozza I Perazzi Morellino di Scansano 1.5L (Previously $90)

(11/2015) 91 points Vinous: "The 2013 Morellino di Scansano I Perazzi is gorgeous. Sweet floral notes meld into a core of black cherry, hard candy, lavender, mint and sage. In this vintage, the Perazzi has a bit more energy and acidity than is the norm, which perks up the flavors and balances some of the natural richness of this site. The 2013 is quite possibly the most refined Morellino from La Mozza yet. (AG) ...Read More »
