2013 Ornellaia "Ornellaia" Bolgheri Superiore

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This wine will be released in May 2016. The 2013 Bolgheri Superiore Ornellaia is an integrated and seamless blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Alex Heinz tells me that 2013 was a difficult vintage especially towards the early part of the growing season. It balanced out during the summer and allowed for steady ripening of fruit before the harvest. But 2013 was not as hot as 2011 and 2012 overall, and this edition of Ornellaia is beautifully tonic and shapely as a result. The bouquet is very developed in terms of aromas t ...Read More »

97 points Wine Spectator: "*Highly Recommended* There are plenty of bass notes here, augmented by plum, licorice, spice and chocolate hints, along with cherry and floral flavors. The solid structure suggests this will age at a glacial pace, though the long aftertaste indicates a lot of future pleasure. Shows excellent balance and harmony overall. Best from 2019 through 2036."

1997 Castello Banfi "Poggio all'Oro" Brunello di Montalcino Riserva

96 points Wine Spectator: "Dark ruby red. Aromas of blackberry, dried flowers and cherry. Very intense and concentrated nose. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a long flavorful finish. Lots of light vanilla and crushed dark fruits on the finish. Solid now, but better with age. (Web-2007)" 93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Rock solid and compact. This wine is true-blue Brunello, meant to be cellared for 10 or more years. Flavors of plum, cherry and currant are pure, and there’s far more fruit here than wood.

2012 Bartolo Mascarello Barolo (Pre-Arrival)

95 points Vinous: "Freshly cut flowers, mint, raspberry and red stone fruits all lift from the glass in the Maria-Theresa Mascarello's 2012 Barolo. Silky, open-knit and gracious, the 2012 is surprisingly delicious today. This is a decidedly mid-weight, approachable Barolo that is already quite open and delicious. Best of all, the 2012 won't need years to come together. Mascarello fans should buy the 2012 to drink over the near and medium-term, while some of the more structured vintages age in the cellar. A model of grace and finesse, the 2012 is striking in its beauty, eve ...Read More »

Hard not to drink now, but will be even better with a little more bottle age." (4/2007) 94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright, dark ruby-red. A v ibrant Brunello with crisp, mineral-tinged aromas of violet, sour red cherry, pipe tobacco and licorice, all lifted by a note of citrussy white pepper. Nicely delineated and sweet on the palate, with strong raspberry and hazelnut notes dominating. This subtle and deceptively concentrated wine finis ...Read More »

Barbaresco with clarity and finesse. This has some wine from the top crus of Gaja such as Sori Tildin and Sori San Lorenzo in the blend because they were not bottled. Drink or hold." (10/2015) 94 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Editors' Choice* In 2012, Gaja didn’t bottle his single-vineyard crus because they didn’t reach his high quality standards, and many of the grapes from these celebrated vineyards finished in this elegant, firmly s ...Read More »

Full body, bright acidity and a savory finish. Juicy and lively. Better to drink this beginning in 2020 but so impressive now."

Dark cherry, lavender, mint, hard candy, and a host of balsamic-inflected notes soar from the glass as this towering, structured Rivera shows off its personality. This is one of the more tannic, backward Riserva of the vintage. As such, demands patience. Just as extraordinary as it was last year, the Riserva once again shows just how magical this vintage was for Andrea Costanti.

Though tempting to drink today, it will be even better in a few years and will drink well to age twenty. It is one of the vintage’s great wines. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2021.

The wine offers a pristine narrative of both grape and place with crystalline aromas of cherry, blackberry, spice, leather, smoke and Mediterranean herb.

Chunky plum pervades the chewy, dark palate, which offers a gorgeous mouthfeel and admirable depth. Only on the finish do you get a slight hint of oak. Overall it’s entirely solid and very likable, but as good as it is, it’s not quite on the level of the ’98 or ’99, which were amazing.

The vineyard produced a supple, subtle and elegant wine. To describe the fruit character one might resort to analogies with black currant and smoky black tea, but it's more a textural experience for now, a mass of pleasure, hard to grasp. Its oak treatment delivers the kind of heady richness found in young Latour; its soil character provides a completely different context, though no less grand.

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2008 Tenuta dell'Ornellaia "Masseto" Toscana (OWC - 99JS, 97RP, 93WS) in original wood. James Suckling: " *Ranked #1 in Top Dozen Bottles Tasted in 2011* Opulent and complex, with dark fruits such as plums and blackberries. Milk chocolate. Dried herbs too. Black olives. Stunning nose. Full bodied, with firm and chewy tannins, but a very creamy texture, and lots of milk chocolate, berry and mineral character. It goes on for minutes. Clear and powerful. Savory and salty. One of the best Massetos ever." (08/2012)

1999 Fanti (Tenuta San Filippo) Brunello di Montalcino

98 points Wine Spectator: "Very dark in color, with aromas of raisin, blackberry jam, espresso and nuts. Full-bodied, with loads of powerful fruit and big, velvety tannins. Superconcentrated, layered and dense, with the structure of a great 1945 claret, such as Latour. Still a blockbuster. Spellbinding. Needs a little time. (Web Only-2010)" 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1999 Brunello di Montalcino, good as it is, is rather perplexing. A dark ruby in color with much black currant fruit, mocha, and vanilla on the nose, its sizeable and supple body and its lengthy, warm, and velvety finish are those of a high c ...Read More »

1990 Fuligni (Vigneti dei Cottimelli) Brunello di Montalcino

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This is the first wine (an outstanding one at that) I have tasted from this producer. It exhibits a forward, sweet, herb, toast, smoky, and ripe cherry-scented nose, medium to full-bodied, supple, fat flavors with good glycerin, and a highly-extracted personality. Pure and well-balanced, with gorgeous layers of sweet, jammy fruit and noticeable yet ripe tannin, this is about as sumptuous as Brunello di Montalcino gets. (RP)" (4/1996) 90 points Wine Spectator: "Perhaps not as great as this producer's '88 Brunello, but it's supple and smooth and outstanding. Sweet- and ripe-tasting, o ...Read More »

2004 Antinori "Solaia" Toscana

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2004 Solaia is breathtaking, as it so often is. Soaring aromatics lead to a sweet, layered expression of dark fruit. The wine possesses super clarity and precision with a gorgeous inner tension that carries all the way through to the long finish. The tannins remain incredibly finessed and silky. This is a more restrained, elegant style than the full-throttle 2001. 2004 is the first vintage in which the component wines were aged separately, rather than together, as had been the custom in previous vintages." (1/2009) 96 points Wine Enthusiast: "The 2004 Solaia is dense and concentr ...Read More »

2010 Elio Grasso "Gavarini Chiniera" Barolo
Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2010 Elio Grasso "Gavarini Chiniera" Barolo (98RP, 98VN, 95WE, 95WS, 94JS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2010 Barolo Gavarini Chiniera is an amazing wine born 430 meters above sea level from white limestone and sandy soils. The elegance expressed by the wine is unforgettable. It opens to a pretty garnet color with ethereal tones of licorice and balsam herb with sharp, delineated contours. This vineyard is usually harvested later than the others, so the growing cycle is extra long and steady. The wine is silky, finessed and profound. (ML)" (07/2014)

Wine Spectator: "Shows meat and blackberry on the nose, with hints of rose perfume. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a long, rich and flavorful finish. Love the cocoa, berry and light vanilla bean aftertaste. This is always classic in an outstanding year. (Web-2009)"

2004 Giuseppe Quintarelli Amarone della Valpolicella Classico
Bid on this bottle of 2004 Giuseppe Quintarelli Amarone della Valpolicella Classico (96VN). Vinous: "The 2004 Amarone is a powerhouse. Over the last year, the 2004 has completely shut down, so readers will have to be patient. The silkiness and allure the 2004 showed when it was first bottled is there, but the fruit is presently hiding beneath a wall of imposing structure. Dried flowers, lavender, sweet tobacco and cedar are some of the notes that add complexity on the finish. (AG)" (07/2015)

2011 Aldo Conterno "Colonnello" Barolo

94 points James Suckling: "Wonderful richness and balance here with plum, dried strawberry and light Spanish cedar character. Full body, fine tannins and a clean finish. Try in 2018." (4/2015) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2011 Barolo Bussia Colonnello shows a compelling level of brawn and heft. This is an elaborate vinous patchwork with dark fruit nuances backed by ethereal tones of balsam herb and licorice. The wine is sturdy, compact and extremely well-constructed. It takes a few minutes to open, but once it does Barolo Bussia Colonnello bursts forth with blackberry, plum, spice and rum cake. Menthol tone ...Read More »
