2014 Remo Farina Valpolicella Superiore Ripasso (Elsewhere $18)

Wine Spectator: "This easy-drinking red is light- to medium-bodied and balanced, offering a creamy mix of crushed cherry, mocha and cream notes. (AN)" (2/2017) K&L Notes: A distinctive style of wine from Valpolicella in the Veneto, often referred to as the poor man's Amarone. Rather than making wine from dried grapes, as they do Amarone, Rispasso uses an ancient technique where a wine is refermented with the skins and pips of pressed Amarone or Recioto, adding depth and character. Remo Farina's is then aged in 90% Slavonian oak barrels and 10% French and American oak for six months. ... Read More »

2012 Castellare di Castellina "I Sodi di San Niccolò" Toscana (Elsewhere $74)

96 points James Suckling: "Captivating aromas of dark fruits, cedar and tobacco follow through to a full body, silky and chewy tannins and a flavorful, rich finish. Very intense and pretty. Provocative. A classic Super Tuscan. A blend of Sangiovese and Malvasia Nera. Drink in 2019." (11/2016) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "As always, this celebrated wine shows excellent results. The 2012 I Sodi di S. Niccolò (85% Sangioveto and 15% Malvasia Nera) is a young wine that needs time to flesh out. It shows bright berry flavors and fresh acidity that will benefit from more time to relax and integrate.

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 »

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Sicilia Saia offers dark cherry and dried blackberry with a good amount of spice, leather and tar at the back. This is a full and complete expression of Nero d'Avola that exhibits the soft and sophisticated side of the grape. The wine is aged in oak for 14 months and both its structure and persistence are well evident as a result. (ML)" (8/2016) 91 points Wine & Spirits: "Antonio Moretti, owner of Tenuta Setti Ponti in Tuscany, began buying vineyard land in Sicily in 2000.

Slightly better than the already excellent 2011. Try in 2020." (3/2016) 91 points Vinous: "Bosco Agostino's 2012 Barolo La Serra is a very pretty La Morra Barolo. Dark cherry, tobacco, smoke, licorice and leather are front and center. The La Serra tannins, often quite pronounced in wines from this site, are nicely integrated. I would prefer to drink the 2012 sooner rather than later. This is an especially dark styl ...Read More »

2013 Torti Pinot Noir IGP Pavia (Previously $20)

I met Dino and Patrizia Torti, a dynamic father-daughter team who are passionately committed to championing their region Lombardia, 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 since the 19th century, but only recently has there been a movement for the production of red wines. Tasting notes from the winery: "Ruby red with a smooth velvety aroma, ethereal; full distinct taste in the mouth, reminiscent of nob... Read More »

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.

96 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* Tilled earth, underbrush, rose petal, perfumed berry, aromatic herb and a balsamic note are some of the many alluring scents you'll find on this gorgeous red. The juicy palate is both earthy and loaded with finesse, doling out ripe dark cherry, raspberry, pipe tobacco, licorice and energizing mineral. Firm, polished tannins provide structure. It's already almost accessible but will continue to evolve and age beautifully. Drink from 2019 through 2029.

(11/2016) 91 points Wine Spectator: "A harmonious, medium-bodied red, with fine-grained tannins that provide a supple frame for the layered palate of crushed black cherry, subtle spice, hints of fig bread and accents of smoky mineral.

(8/2015) 90 points Wine Spectator: "Cherry, herb and spice flavors are allied to an elegant frame in this supple-textured red.

2012 Tormaresca "Masseria Maìme" Negroamaro Salento (Previously $30)

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "The nose is initially subdued but eventually reveals inviting aromas of spiced plum, leather, vanilla and a whiff of blue flower. The structured but elegant palate conveys blackberry, dried cherry, mint, savory herb and clove alongside bracing but fine-grained tannins and bright acidity. The lingering finish ends on a licorice note. Drink 2016–2023. (KO)" (3/2015) 90 points James Suckling: "A soft, fruity red with a plum, milk-chocolate and almond aftertaste. Full and delicious."

Long, long finish. A blend of Grenache, Syrah and Carignane. 11,000 vines per hectare. Tiny production. The greatest red of Lazio? Crazy stuff." (7/2016) K&L Notes: Grenache, Syrah, Carignan.

Full body with fine, refined tannins with currant, blueberry and cherry flavors wrapped up in the tannic structure. A wine that that will deliver much more in a year or two: Drink in 2017." (10/2015) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Castello Banfi has maintained an excellent reputation for consistency over the years.

2012 Secoli Amarone della Valpolicella Riserva

This classic blend of Corvina, Rondinella, and Molinara was vinified in the traditional "appassimento" style, which involves drying the grapes before fermentation to create a rich, luxurious wine. It is characteristically bold in flavor, with a silky, sensuous texture. A voluptuous wine for voluptuous dishes like red meat, game, and strong cheeses.

Drink now through 2019. (BS)" (11/2016) K&L Notes: The 2013 vintage was cold and damp in Alba, but a sunny fall and a steady hand at the sorting table helped create beautiful, intricate wines.

(10/2014) 92 points Vinous: "Il Poggione's 2009 Brunello di Montalcino is a bit of a bruiser today, but it is also one of the few 2009s that is built for the cellar. Smoke, new leather, licorice, spices, scorched earth all wrap around the palate in a dark, voluptuous Brunello with plenty of intrigue. This is one of the richer, more intense wines of the year, but all the elements are very nicely balanced. (AG) ...Read More »

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 »

The 2011 Brunello di Montalcino Vigneti del Versante (with vines planted in 1997) shows some signs of the vintage heat, but really only in terms of textural roundness and general softness.

2011 Rocca di Montegrossi "Geremia" 1.5L (Previously $100)

95 points Vinous: "The 2011 Geremia, the estate's Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot blend, offers tons of energy to balance its dark, inky fruit. Lavender, menthol, melted road tar, sage, crème de cassis and grilled herbs are some of the many signatures. The ripeness and raciness of the year come through in spades, yet there is an element of pulsating intensity in the glass that plays off the more overt elements nicely.
