2015 Antinori "Tignanello" Toscana New!
2015 Antinori "Tignanello" Toscana

98 points James Suckling: "Fantastic aromas of dark berries, sandalwood and Spanish cedar that are ever so deep. Full body, an incredible spin of polished tannins and bright acidity. Incredible depth. Like looking over the edge of a skyscraper. Powerful and structured. A great Tignanello. A little more sangiovese than usual. Best since the legendary 1997?" (1/2018)

2013 Castello dei Rampolla "Vigna d'Alceo" Toscana (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
2013 Castello dei Rampolla "Vigna d'Alceo" Toscana (Pre-Arrival)

100 points Vinous: "Readers should do whatever they can to get their hands on a few bottles of the 2013 d'Alceo. Seamless and voluptuous in the glass, it is an epic wine that embodies all the qualities that make these terraced vineyards in Panzano so special. Blackberry jam, crème de cassis, plum, licorice and spice meld together in the glass, but it is the wine's textural intensity that elevates it into the realm of the profound. The 2013 has been nothing short of moving on the two occasions I tasted it recently. (AG)" (1/2018) 96 points James Suckling: "Strawberry, plums, chocolate and green pepper f ...Read More »

2007 Fuligni Brunello di Montalcino Riserva (Pre-Arrival, Elsewhere $130)

95 points James Suckling: "Dried fruits with hints of coffee bean and cedar. Full body, with silky tannins and a tangy, savory finish. Almost salty character with ripe fruits. Complex and succulent on the finish. Drink or hold." (6/2016) 94 points Vinous: "Fuligni's 2007 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is simply stunning. Still deeply-colored, the 2007 continues to grow with time in bottle. Rose petals, sweet tobacco, mint, juicy cherries and pomegranate abound in a dark, voluptuous wine endowed with tons of depth and pure richness. This is a fabulous showing.

2015 Petrolo "Galatrona" Toscana (1.5L) (Pre-Arrival)

99 points James Suckling: "Terrific aromas of violets, roses and raspberries with hints of strawberries and brown sugar. Full body. Phenomenal layers of focused fruit and polished velvety tannins. This is the Galatrona that everyone has been waiting for. It's the vintage that shows depth and power yet wonderful finesse and focus. Best ever. Drink from 2023 but already electrifying. *Ranked #2 on Top 100 of 2017*" (8/2017) 97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2015 Galatrona is another gem from this estate.

2013 Bartolo Mascarello Barolo (Pre-Arrival)

98 points Vinous: "98+ points: Maria Teresa's 2013 Barolo is a stunning, drop-dead gorgeous beauty. Vibrant, crystalline and exceptionally nuanced, the 2013 speaks to elegance above all else. There is an exotic quality to the aromatics that adds to the wine's total sense of seduction. As captivating as the 2013 is today, there is no shortage of underlying grip and structure. Dark cherry, plum, spice, menthol and licorice are some of the many notes that grace the palate. But the 2013 is a wine of completeness rather than elements. And the 2013 simply has it all.

2014 Gaja Barbaresco

96 points Vinous: "Gaja's 2014 Barbaresco is rich, super-dense, and inviting, with serious underpinnings of structure and the same classicism that made the 2013 so compelling. Dense and powerful in the glass, with explosive energy and tons of tannin, the 2014 is built for extended cellaring. Expressive floral and savory notes hover out of the glass in this super-expressive Barbaresco. This is one of the most tightly wound, intense versions of Gaja's Barbaresco I can remember tasting. Don't miss it." (10/2017) 95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2014 Barbaresco is beautiful and made in a fine, incredibly el ...Read More »

2013 Il Marroneto "Madonna delle Grazie" Brunello di Montalcino (Pre-Arrival)

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Sangiovese-whisperer Alessandro Mori has delivered another superstar wine with the 2013 Brunello di Montalcino Madonna Delle Grazie. The bouquet is detailed and fine with bright accents of fragrant red rose, red currant, cola, licorice, grilled herb and crushed white peppercorn. The bouquet is loose, light and buoyant, with a smooth and natural progression of building aromas. The mouthfeel, however, is direct, important and determined. It's that playful juxtaposition between the wine's soft side and its stern side that makes this such an interesting and ...Read More »

Chocolate-covered cherry center palate. Terrific young wine. Best riserva ever from here. Better in 2018." (9/2015) 96 points Wine Spectator: "Concentrated and elegant, featuring macerated cherry, raspberry, peony, iron, tobacco and chalk aromas and flavors. Structured and fresh, offering intensity and balance, with a terrific finish. Youthful and elegant, yet powerful. Best from 2019 through 2036. 500 cases made."

The palate is still youthfully restrained, but already offers juicy Marasca cherry, raspberry compote, star anise and a hint of truffle set against tightly wound, refined tannins. Bright acidity provides balance. It needs time to unwind and fully develop but promises to blossom into a stunner. Drink 2023-2038. (KO)" (5/2018) 96 points Vinous: "Luminous full red.

2013 Produttori del Barbaresco "Rabaja" Barbaresco Riserva 1.5L (Pre-Arrival)

96 points Vinous: "The 2013 Barbaresco Riserva Rabajà is shockingly seamless in this tasting. Deep layers of fruit virtually bury the tannins, something that is so unusual for a young Rabajà. A host of dark blue-tone fruits, lavender, mint, violet and spice race across the palate in an utterly vivid, compelling Barbaresco of the highest level. Perhaps I caught the Rabajà on an unusually open day, but it is terrific and also quite refined for such a young wine." (10/2017)

2013 Produttori del Barbaresco "Ovello" Barbaresco Riserva 1.5L (Pre-Arrival)

96 points Vinous: "The Produttori's 2013 Barbaresco Riserva Ovello is all power, tension and nerve. Even so, the 2013 is remarkably civilized and much less austere than young Ovello Barbarescos usually are. Scents of cranberry, white pepper and mint give the wine its signature high-toned aromatics. The Ovello has a Volnay-like purity to its fruit, with Nebbiolo tannins and structure, of course. If that sounds appealing, well, it is. Vivid, sculpted and impossibly beautiful, the Ovello is simply magnificent." (10/2017)

1997 Antinori "Guado al Tasso" Bolgheri Superiore

This has a long life ahead of it. I would still give it a few more years. (JS, Web-2007)" 92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Full black-ruby. Very ripe, complex aromas of raspberry and blackberry, along with licorice, creme anglaise and nicely integrated oak. Explosive on the palate: very dense and rich and notably more alcoholic than usual, with warm, enveloping flavors of berry fruit and light oak. Finishes firmly tannic, y ...Read More »

100 points James Suckling: "This is an extraordinary merlot with such purity and focus. Flowers such as violets and hints of orange peel. It is full-bodied yet incredibly energetic and structured. The finish goes on for minutes. Seamless texture. Fresh yet dense. Contrasty. Best Redigaffi ever. Hard not to drink now but a wine for decades. *Top 100 of 2017*" (8/2017) 97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "No surprise, Tua Rita delivers yet another unbelievable edition of its legendary Merlot from Coastal Tuscany.

It’s savory and loaded with finesse, delivering juicy Marasca cherry, raspberry compote, licorice, orange zest and pipe tobacco alongside firm yet polished tannins and fresh acidity. A tangy mineral note graces the lingering finish. It’s still young and needs plenty of time to fully unwind and develop. Drink 2027-2042. (KO)" (2/2018) 98 points Vinous: "Vivid deep red.

2013 Produttori del Barbaresco "Montestefano" Barbaresco Riserva 1.5L (Pre-Arrival)

95 points Vinous: "95+ : A dark, brooding wine, the 2013 Barbaresco Riserva Montestefano comes across as quite virile today, with huge tannins and equally imposing dark fruit. Smoke, leather, licorice and game add to an impression of raw, almost unrestrained, power. There is not a whole lot of finesse here at least not now. The Montestefano is a wine painted in broad brush strokes that emphasize power over elegance. Then again, that is Montestefano. Readers should be in no rush to open the 2013." (10/2017)

But will improve with age." (2/2012) 90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Medium red. Cherry, plum, mocha and tobacco on the nose, with hints of leather and earth. Surprising acidity gives shape to the smooth, slightly low-toned flavors of cherry, plum, mocha and flowers. Comes across as a bit youthfully disjointed today, with a faint green edge to the acidity. Has the energy of the vintage but needs time to harmonize. Very long on the aftertaste. ...Read More »

Silky and fine-grained but at the same time penetrating, showing terrific sappy energy to its dark fruit, pepper and tobacco flavors. With its light touch, this reminded me of a Chambolle Amoureuses. Finishes with firm tannins and a sexy hint of game. This can be enjoyed now or cellared.

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."

This is a vintage of overt, sumptuous fruit and pure sexiness. Despite its richness, the 2007 never loses its sense of structure, but in this vintage the tannins are nearly buried by the huge fruit. Today the 2007 comes across as a hypothetical blend of the 2004 and 2006, with the finesse of the former and the size of the latter. Not a bad combination, to put it mildly.

Bid on this bottle of 2003 Giacomo Conterno "Cascina Francia" Barolo (94RP, 94VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2003 Barolo Cascina Francia is a remarkable wine for the vintage. This deep, powerful Barolo reveals awesome richness and an almost liqueur-like quality to its fruit that is balanced by the chalky mineral notes that provide freshness on the finish and help convey an impression of notable balance. In 2003 there is no Monfortino, and the Cascina Francia surely benefits from the addition of that juice which is mostly felt in the wine’s depth. Resisting the temptation to harvest too early, Roberto Conterno waited until October 8 to start picking in his Cascina Francia vineyard, long after most producers had already brought the fruit in. He had the benefit of the late September rains that helped restore at least a little freshness to the fruit, and as a result his 2003 Cascina Francia doesn’t have the aggressive tannins that plague so many wines. Simply put, this is a stunn

Dried rose petal, tar, mint, wild flowers and cinnamon flow through to the multi-dimensional finish. The 2010 is a blend of fruit from Vignane and Merli, two historic sites for Le Vigne, while Cerretta and Conterni have been replaced by Baudana, a site in Serralunga that confers a level of depth, darkness and masculinity that has not been present in the past ...

Full-bodied, with wonderfully velvety tannins and focused, juicy, rich fruit. Long and intense. The finish shows berry, tobacco, toasty oak, berry and chocolate. Goes on and on.

1990 Tenuta dell'Ornellaia "Ornellaia" Toscana

96 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good fresh deep red. Knockout nose combines black fruits, tar, mocha and humus. A hugely concentrated, sweet wine with great richness of fruit and extract. The first vintage of Ornellaia to reach 14% alcohol, and it shows in the wine's compelling thickness. Far from the subtlest wine in the range, but ripe acidity and big, sweet tannins give it plenty of verve and grip. Today, I find this wine fresher and a bit more detailed than the estate's 2000. A monumental wine today, but this could still use another four or five years in bottle to reach its peak. ...Read More »

In a flight of standout vintages, the 1999 truly excels. For years, the 1999 was very tight. It finally seems to be blossoming. (AG) 96+" (12/2013)

2000 Castello dei Rampolla "Vigna d'Alceo" Toscana

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "For whatever reason, the full-bodied 2000 Vigna d'Alceo was roaring the day I tasted it. A single vineyard blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Sangiovese, it tastes like the Sammarco on steroids. It boasts a deep purple color in addition to scents of espresso, sweet melted licorice, black currant jam, and toasty oak. There is great intensity, superb purity, and a finish that lingers for nearly a minute. This mythical wine requires 2-3 years of cellaring, and will age effortlessly for two decades.

2001 Giacomo Conterno "Cascina Francia" Barolo
Bid on this bottle of 2001 Giacomo Conterno "Cascina Francia" Barolo (94RP, (91-93ST), 91WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2001 Barolo Cascina Francia has entered a period of extreme stubbornness, which has been my experience the several times I have tasted the wine recently. The sweet, candied notes that were once present in the bouquet have developed into a much more classic melange of roses, tar, licorice and red berries. The 2001 boasts tremendous structure, while some of the overt raciness that was present when the wine was young has dissipated. One of the bottles I tasted, from my cellar, only began to show some expressiveness after it had been opened for two days! The 2001 Cascina Francia is neither young nor mature, rather it is in an adolescent stage where the best option is to leave the bottles alone for at least a few more years. (AG)" (04/2012)

2015 Fattoria Le Pupille "Saffredi" Maremma Toscana (3L) (Pre-Arrival)

99 points James Suckling: "I love the currant and rosemary character of this wine. Some sage, too. Complex aromas that draw you in. 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. But a serious red all the way. *Ranked #9 on Top 100 of 2017*" (8/2017) 97 points Vinous: "The 2015 Saffredi is a total head-turner.

2013 Le Macchiole "Messorio" Bolgheri (1.5L)

99 points Jeb Dunnuck: "A crazy good wine that flirts with perfection, the 100% Merlot 2013 Messorio comes from two vineyards, the Puntone vineyard planted in 1993 and the Vignone vineyard planted in 1999. Aged 20 months in 70% new barrels, it knocks it out of the park with its plum and black cherry fruit and background oak, chocolate, smoke, and mineral bouquet. A sensational wine in every way, with a huge, concentrated, viscous texture, building tannin, and no weight, it's going to stand toe to toe with the best Merlots in the world. Drink this beauty anytime over the coming ...Read More »

1999 Il Poggione Brunello di Montalcino Riserva

95 points Wine Spectator: "Flowers, dried berries, citrus fruit and cigar box aromas follow through to a full body, with supersoft, silky tannins and very opulent fruit. Layered and extremely flamboyant, yet reserved and caressing. Lovely now.—'99 Brunello blind retrospective (2009). (Web Only-2010)" 94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Strong as a cement block, with aromas of charcoal, leather and intense plum/berry. Still, in the mouth it’s luscious. In addition, there’s a sublime spice element playing in the background that only makes it more complete. Finishes with the essence of fruit cake and marzipan. A pleasure ...Read More »

2004 Bruno Giacosa "Falletto di Serralunga d'Alba" Barolo
Bid on this bottle of 2004 Bruno Giacosa "Falletto di Serralunga d'Alba" Barolo (97VN, 96RP, 94ST, 92JS, 92WS). Vinous: "Giacosa's 2004 Barolo Falletto is a rock star. The truth is that, if tasted alone, the white label Falletto could easily be mistaken for the Red Label Riserva. It is every bit that compelling. Intensely perfumed yet also towering in stature, the 2004 is simply magnificent. The main difference between the white label and red label is finesse in the tannin, which is a bit less polished here. But that is only because there is a comparison. Taken on its own, the Falletto is one of the very finest wines of the vintage. Elegance meets power. With a little advance aeration, the 2004 can be enjoyed young, but it is frankly best left alone for another few years, especially for readers who only own a few bottles. This is yet another 2004 that has really blossomed in bottle. (AG)" (05/2015)

2015 Petrolo "Galatrona" Toscana (3L) (Pre-Arrival)

99 points James Suckling: "Terrific aromas of violets, roses and raspberries with hints of strawberries and brown sugar. Full body. Phenomenal layers of focused fruit and polished velvety tannins. This is the Galatrona that everyone has been waiting for. It's the vintage that shows depth and power yet wonderful finesse and focus. Best ever. Drink from 2023 but already electrifying. *Ranked #2 on Top 100 of 2017*" (8/2017) 97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2015 Galatrona is another gem from this estate.
