2011 Salicutti Brunello di Montalcino "Piaggione" Riserva

96 points Vinous: "Good bright, dark red-ruby. Very deep, ripe, pure aromas and flavours of blueberry, blackberry, violet, minerals, tobacco and peppery spices. Densely packed, creamy and firm, almost brooding in fact, with compelling sweetness of fruit but not heavy owing to its firm, harmonious acids. Serious, juicy wine that is still very much and infant and that will require patience. It’s also my early candidate for best 2011 Brunello Riserva of the year. -- Ian D'Agata" (3/2017)

2012 Antinori "Solaia" Toscana

Mineral and stone undertones. Really excellent. Drink or hold." (5/2017) 97 points Wine Enthusiast: "This stunning expression of Solaia opens with ample aromas of exotic spices, tilled soil, mature black-skinned fruit and an underlying whiff of fragrant blue flowers. The vibrant, elegantly structured palate doles out high-toned black cherry, ripe blackberry, white pepper, cinnamon, clove and Mediterranean herbs alongside a backbone of firm, ...Read More »

2006 Valdicava Brunello di Montalcino

97 points James Suckling: "Love the nose on this with blackberries, sweet tobacco, blueberries. Full body, with soft and silky tannins and a light jammy finish. Lots of dark fruits. Long finish. Loads going on in this one. Give it three to five years. Or more." (1/2011) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino flows with gorgeous layers of dark red fruit. This is one of the more muscular, virile wines of the vintage. Slow to reveal its character, the Valdicava Brunello will require significant patience, but I have seen the wine blossom beautifully, even in the smallest of vintages. A blast o ...Read More »

2007 Tenuta San Guido "Sassicaia" Bolgheri (375ml)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Here's a wine of power, determination and confidence—as far as first impressions go. The 2007 Bolgheri Sassicaia leaves little hidden behind the curtain. It presents a frank and straightforward array of bold fruit, spice, leather and tobacco-like aromas that emerge from the bouquet with energy and force. The aromas are complete and genuine. The palate, however, offers more space for interpretation and review. It is finessed and nuanced, thus requiring more time to fully comprehend and appreciate. Silky tannins are followed by fine textural smoothness and ...Read More »

2010 Antinori "Pian delle Vigne-Vigna Ferrovia" Brunello di Montalcino Riserva

98 points James Suckling: "Fantastic aromas of dark fruits, mineral, bark and fresh mushroom follow through to a full body, firm and silky tannins and a long, long finish. Beautiful mouthfeel of velvety tannins. One of the greatest Brunellos ever made by Antinori. Drink or hold." (2/2016) 94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Plum cake, underbrush, dark berry, menthol and a touch of mocha unfold in the glass. The taut, full-bodied palate offers chewy black cherry, raspberry jam, licorice and sage framed in youthfully assertive, fine-grained tannins. A tobacco note closes the finish. Drink 2022-2032.

2012 Giacomo Conterno "Francia" Barolo

98 points James Suckling: "A gorgeous nose of orange peel, plums and light walnuts. Some wet earth. Full to medium body with a compacted center palate. A tight ball of ripe, fine tannins. Minerals and hot stones underneath. Serious structure. No Monfortino was made so it's all here. Better in 2022." (11/2016) 97 points Vinous: "The 2012 Barolo Francia is wonderfully expressive today. Much more open than the Barolo Cerretta tasted alongside it, the Francia bristles with energy. Floral and mineral overtones add to an impression of brightness, yet there is plenty of underlying tannin and overall structur ...Read More »

2004 Valdicava Brunello di Montalcino

95 points James Suckling: "Lovely black licorice, flowers, and ripe fruits on the nose. This is very aromatic." (1/2011) 95 points Wine Spectator: "Displays complex aromas of blackberry and cherry, with a hint of licorice. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a delicious finish of wonderful yet subtle fruit. Well-integrated and beautiful. Everything is in the right place. (JS)" (1/2009) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2004 Brunello di Montalcino is simply beautiful.

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 »

2014 Ornellaia "Ornellaia" Bolgheri Superiore

95 points James Suckling: "A solid and structured red with tile, dark berry and black tea character and some cloves, too. Full body, tannic and rich. Needs time to soften. Well done for a 2014. Ornellaia shows its pedigree here. Better in 2019." (8/2047) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "To be released in May 2017, the 2014 Bolgheri Superiore Ornellaia reverts to a style and personality that we have not seen in a long while. The wine shows a tight, silky and determined approach that reminds us of the Ornellaias made under the estate's previous ownership with the Marchese Lodovico Antinori in the mid-1990s.

2009 Cerbaiona Brunello di Montalcino

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Brunello di Montalcino shows the signature sophistication this iconic estate is celebrated for. Sadly, Diego and Nora Molinari have announced their intention to sell Cerbaiona and we may soon be looking at new ownership. A dark appearance segues to brooding aromas of licorice, tar, cherry and spice that wrap around the long, polished finish. (ML)" (2/2014)

2012 La Massa "Giorgio Primo" Toscana 3.0L

Give this a few years in the bottle to completely come together. Better in 2016." (11/2016) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Made with Cabernet Sauvignon (65%), Merlot (30%) and Petit Verdot (5%), the impeccable 2012 Giorgo Primo is attractive from every angle.

2014 San Guido "Sassicaia" Bolgheri (Pre-Arrival)

It came from all the hillside vineyards. This shows lovely potential and balance. Delicate and fine. Much better than anticipated considering the cool and wet growing season in Tuscany."

2005 Antinori "Tignanello" Toscana

93 points Vinous: "The 2005 Tignanello is just beginning to enter the early part of its drinking window, although it clearly has enough stuffing to drink well for another 20 years, if not longer. Smoke, graphite, plums, earthiness, black cherries and spices take shape in the glass, but it is the wine pure power and intensity - both remarkable for a vintage that was considered light at the outset - that truly stand out. The style is dark, brooding and muscular, with notable density and tons of personality. The wildness of Sangiovese comes through loud and clear. Although no ...Read More »

2001 Aldo Conterno "Granbussia" Barolo Riserva

Fat, sweet, rich and deep; at once succulent and seamless, with a wonderfully layered texture and great early appeal. Very full without coming across as weighty. The slow-building finish features substantial sweet tannins. "Shows the magic side of 2001," Franco offers. "It can keep for a long time but it's great right now."

Goes on for minutes. This is amazing and firm, with a racy character. Best after 2016." (9/2011) 97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Ornellaia continues to blossom in the bottle. Dark cherries, chocolate, espresso, blackberries and mocha are just some of the many notes that explode from the glass. A rich tapestry of licorice, tar and camphor notes develop in the glass, adding considerable complexity. The 2008 is a huge, structure ...Read More »

2013 Gaja Barbaresco

96 points Vinous: "The 2013 Barbaresco is fabulous. In fact, this is one of the best Barbarescos I have tasted at Gaja in many years. Vibrant, perfumed and beautifully sculpted in the glass, the 2013 possesses tons of understated intensity. Sweet red cherry, mint, white pepper and anise are all lifted in the glass. The 2013 is an almost shockingly classic Barbaresco from Gaja. The translucent color, vibrant Nebbiolo fruit and austere but noble tannins represent a move towards a much more traditional style. For readers who can find it, the 2013 is simply a must-have wine. ( ...Read More »

2008 Tenuta San Guido "Sassicaia" Bolgheri (375ml)

97 points James Suckling: "This is the best young Sassicaia in years. It's the new 1988, which was great, and sometimes better than the legendary 1985. What incredible aromas here with blueberries, spices, licorice, plums. Graphite too. Subtle and complex. Full and silky with a beautiful texture of fine tannins and an ultra-fine finish. So beautiful now but will be much better in 2015. Owner Niccolo Incisa della Rocchetta says that Sassicaia is always great in years that end with eight: 1958, 1968, 1978, 1988, 1998, and 2008."

Full body, extremely tight and chewy with a long and intense finish. The tannins are fantastic - so polished. Focused and beautiful. Mineral undertone with ash and hot stone highlighting the dark fruits. It goes on for minutes. Needs three or four years to come together.

This is a complete wine that accurately doses out its intensity and persistence with stopwatch precision. Dark fruit, blackberry, spice, leather, tar and tobacco are folded together into a homogeneous whole. The wine is supported by finely integrated tannins with lovely dark fruit flavors and beautifully plush textural richness. Thanks to the vintage warmth, the 2013 vintage is similar to 2011.

2013 Fattoria Le Pupille "Poggio Valente" Riserva Morellino di Scansano (3L) (Pre-Arrival)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Morellino di Scansano Riserva Poggio Valente is a breakthrough wine for Fattoria le Pupille and its talented winemaking team. This is a complete and balanced expression that shows its best side to all the senses: its appearance is richly saturated and bright; the bouquet is intense and complex; and the mouthfeel shows elegance and power. In all, this wine tastes and feels much younger than it really is and I have high hopes for its future aging ability. It shows a great sense of inner energy and liveliness that makes it a pleasure to drink in th ...Read More »

1964 Bartolo Mascarello Barolo Riserva (1.5L) (Pre-Arrival)

93 points Vinous: "I had never tasted Bruno Giacosa’s 1964 Barolo Riserva Speciale. It was a very beautiful, delicate Barolo with pretty notes of mint, anise, licorice and beef bouillon. It showed greater structure and power than the Bartolo Mascarello that followed. Unfortunately this wine was never better than when it was first opened. With time it lost some of its freshness and sheer sexiness. Bartolo Mascarello’s 1964 Barolo (1.9 liter magnum) was the exact opposite. Initially quite funky and rustic, it needed several hours of air to open up. When it did, it was a fant ...Read More »

Needs five or six years to completely open but so beautiful in its youth. Real deal. From organically grown grapes." (7/2016) 97 points Vinous: "The 2013 Flaccianello della Pieve is a powerhouse. In this vintage, Flaccianello has all of its typical richness but also a good deal of freshness that will help it age.

The 2009 stands out for its silky tannins and phenomenal overall balance. This is one of those wines that will probably enjoy a long drinking window.

Villero is the next vineyard that will appear in Le Vigne, starting in 2011. In the meantime, readers will not want to miss the 2010 Barolo Le Vigne, an epic achievement from the Sandrone family.

The aromas are seamless and capture the essence of chocolate fudge, sweet cherry, blackberry, spice and vanilla. It boasts thick, dense extraction, excellent structure and amazing persistence." (4/2008) 98 points Wine Spectator: "Shows wonderful aromas of flowers and berries, with hints of vanilla and Indian s ...Read More »

2001 Tenuta dell'Ornellaia "Masseto" Toscana

100 points James Suckling: "This has an intense nose of brown sugar, porcini mushrooms, dark fruits, tobacco, olives, cigar box... I am running out of words to describe the nose. The palate is full bodied and ultra rich. This is a monumental wine that arouses all your senses. Truly exotic and sensual. Enjoy this for the rest of your life." (3/2011) 100 points Wine Spectator: "*Ranked #6 in Top 100 of 2004* Wonderful aromas of blackberries, raspberries and fresh tobacco, with a hint of exotic fruit. Fullbodied, with loads of velvety tannins and a long, long finish. Very silky indeed. A gorgeous, seductive and cl ...Read More »

2015 Tua Rita "Per Sempre" Syrah Toscana (Pre-Arrival)

98 points James Suckling: "I love the dried flowers and smoked meats with hints of plums and berries. Full body, layered and refined with an extremely pretty and textured palate. Tea and dark fruits. Deep and fantastic. Savory. 20% whole berry. Best ever? Made from organic grapes." (8/2017) K&L Notes: As reported in the Wine Advocate in 2013, "Stefano Frascolla and Tua Rita have almost single-handedly put Suvereto on Italy’s winemaking map. His latest releases are nothing short of spectacular." This estate continues to impress, and offers some of Italy's very best Syrahs. The 2015 "Per Sempre"... Read More »

2005 Tenuta dell'Ornellaia "Masseto" Toscana

96 points Wine Spectator: "*Collectibles* Smells like chocolate mousse, with crushed raspberry and hints of flowers. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins and a rich, fruity finish. This is powerful and structured Merlot, with layers and layers of everything. Needs time to come around. (JS)" (10/2008) 95 points Vinous: "The 2005 Masseto is a fabulous choice for drinking now and over the next decade or so. Now at ten years of age, the 2005 has developed beautifully in bottle. Lithe, delicate and perfumed, the 2005 shows the understated signatures of the cool, late-ripening year in which the harvest wrapped u ...Read More »

2010 Poggio di Sotto Brunello di Montalcino (Pre-Arrival)

98 points James Suckling: "This is a truly super Brunello from Poggio di Soto and probably its best ever. It shows decadence yet class and subtlety that only the great 2010 vintage can give it. Full body, ultra-fine tannins and layers of berries, plums, peaches and cedar. The finish lasts for minutes. Why wait on this? Open it and enjoy the magic." (10/2015) 97 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* Stunning and fragrant, this elegantly structured wine opens with a fragrance of pressed violet, perfumed red berry, leather, white pepper and a whiff of mint. The vibrant, silky palate offers black raspberry, ...Read More »

2010 Poggio di Sotto Brunello di Montalcino Riserva (Pre-Arrival)

98 points James Suckling: "Shows superb complexity in terms of aromas with cedar, berry, ginger, flower and plum character. Full body and firm and very silky tannins that have been polished to near perfection. This wine just gets better and better with each sip. Better in 2018." (11/2016) 97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Poggio di Sotto has released one of the wines of the vintage. The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva fulfills the promise of its category. Brunello Riservas are aged for six long years before their release, thus insuring extra intensity and complexity. This wine delivers both in abundance. The bou ...Read More »

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)

Amazing balance and depth to this red. It's so beautiful to taste now but it will be much better in five to ten years. A triumph." (01/2015)

2004 Giacomo Conterno "Cascina Francia" Barolo
Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2004 Giacomo Conterno "Cascina Francia" Barolo (98VN, 97RP, (91-94ST), 90WS). Vinous: "The 2004 Barolo Cascina Francia boasts staggering depth and explosive intensity from the very first taste. One of the most brooding, backward 2004s, the Cascina Francia is one of the only wines in this vintage that I am slightly disappointed to have opened, as it is so intensely backward. Hints of sage, tobacco, menthol, rose petal and graphite open up in the glass, recalling just how mesmerizing the 2004 was in cask. At once silky, while at other times virile, the 2004 Cascina Francia is constantly changing in the glass. The multiple shades of nuance and complexity are those of Nebbiolo from a great site as expressed by one of the region's historic families. The price of Monfortino has escalated rapidly over the last few years, but by comparison, the 2004 Cascina Francia is still available in the market and represents a good relative value.
