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."

2013 Einaudi "Terlo Vigna Costa Grimaldi" Barolo (Elsewhere $70)

95 points James Suckling: "Ripe fruit with orange-peel, walnut and ripe-strawberry aromas. Full body, ultra-fine and long tannins and a finish that lasts for minutes. Wow. Gorgeous. Better in 2021 but who can wait?" (1/2017) 94 points Vinous: "94+ Points: Black cherry, smoke, tar, licorice and menthol give the 2013 Barolo Terlo Vigna Costa Grimaldi much of its virile personality. Here, too, the level of fruit intensity is considerable, but, as always, the Costa Grimaldi has the broad shoulders and frame to hand all of that richness. Readers will have to be patient, as the 2013 needs at least a few yea ...Read More »

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.

2012 Valdicava Rosso di Montalcino

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good medium red. Ripe, slightly high-toned aromas of raspberry, chocolate and minerals. Large-scaled, intensely flavored and well-delineated, showing a pronounced flinty aspect to the fresh red and darker berry flavors. Finishes pure and long, with a firm tannic backbone that avoids coming off as dry. (IDA)" (12/2014) Vinous: "The 2012 Rosso di Montalcino is soft, silky and expressive.

2015 Uccelliera Rosso di Montalcino

Vinous: "Crushed flowers, tobacco, worn-in leather and dried flowers are all nicely delineated in the 2014 Rosso di Montalcino. This is an unusually soft, forward Rosso from Uccelliera. (AG)" (2/2016) K&L Notes: Uccelleria's Rosso di Montalcino is a great early drinking red picked from the youngest Brunello vineyards--perfect for those who love Brunello but don't want to wait for it to mature (or fork over the clams for it). The Sangiovese grapes were grown at vineyards in Castelnuovo dell'Abate at elevations up to 1200 feet. Velvety, fruity and balanced, it is a great compan... Read More »

This is a 2012 Brunello with it all." (11/2016) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Argiano 2012 Brunello di Montalcino does a great job of interpreting the vintage and of showcasing its special microclimate on the southern flank of the Montalcino appellation. Both these elements point to warm-climate Sangiovese. and Argiano accepts that challenge with creativity and expertise.

2012 Felsina "Rancia" Chianti Classico Riserva Top Pick!
2012 Felsina "Rancia" Chianti Classico Riserva

94 points Vinous: "94+: A ripe, powerful wine, the 2012 Chianti Classico Riserva Rancia offers a level of finesse that balances some of the more overt intensity of the year. Dark cherry, plum, spice, tobacco, menthol and licorice add shades of nuance as this beautifully delineated Rancia opens up in the glass. Because of its mid-weight structure, I expect the 2012 will give up its charms relatively early by Rancia standards, which means around age 15-20. The 2012 is not an obvious or explosive Rancia, rather is a wine built on compelling overall harmony. (AG)" (9/2015) 94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Full- ...Read More »

Vinous praised the wines of Pasetti: "Owner Domenico Pasetti, helped by his wife Laura and children Massimo, Davide and Francesca, represents a modern success story in Abruzzo wine, as his judiciously oaked, easy-to-drink wines have been extremely popular, especially in Italy, over the past decade.

2013 Bibi Graetz "Soffocone di Vincigliata" Toscana (Previously $35)

91 points James Suckling: "A red with dried dark fruits such as cherries and berries. Medium body, bright acidity and a clean and crisp finish. Always a delicious red." (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)

2011 Villa Poggio Salvi Brunello di Montalcino

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Aromas of sunbaked soil, ripe plum, dark spice, chopped herb and a whiff of new leather lead the nose. The smooth full-bodied palate delivers juicy black cherry, mint, licorice and a hint of coffee alongside big, chewy tannins. Drink through 2021. (KO)" (3/2017) 90 points Wine Spectator: "Leans toward the firm side, offering raspberry, strawberry, leather, earth and tobacco flavors. Elegant overall, with fine length.

2012 Agostino Bosco "La Serra" Barolo Top Pick!
2012 Agostino Bosco "La Serra" Barolo

94 points James Suckling: "Lots of ripe strawberry, licorice, aniseed and rose petal on the nose. Full body, firm and silky tannins and a fresh finish. Vibrant and muscular for the vintage. 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 »

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. (JH)" (11/2016) Vinous: "The 2012 Barolo Cerretta is a bit creamier and more generous than som ...Read More »

2012 Felsina "Fontalloro" Toscana New! Top Pick!
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 »
