2004 Valdicava Brunello di Montalcino

95 points James Suckling: "Lovely black licorice, flowers, and ripe fruits on the nose. This is very aromatic. Full bodied but tight..." (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. Best after 2011." (1/2009) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2004 Brunello di Montalcino is simply beautiful.

2012 Antinori "Solaia" Toscana

97 points James Suckling: "Extremely impressive ripe dark fruits of blueberries, plums and blackberries follow through to a full body, round texture and bright acidity. The finesse and depth to this red is stunning making it a wonderful successor to the 2011 Solaia. Needs three or four years to soften and open. Better in 2018." (8/2015) 97 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* 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.

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 »

1997 Valdicava Brunello di Montalcino

96 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Full dark garnet with ruby highlights. Intensely perfumed nose suggests cinnamon, nutmeg, white pepper and violet. Deep raspberry and kirsch flavors coat the mouth, along with a complicating licorice nuance. Full-bodied and plush, with mouthcoating but pliant tannins. High-toned, silky, and pure, with a sweet lingering finish that evokes powdered cocoa. Luscious wine. (EB)" (8/2002) 93 points Vinous: "It is hard to believe that Valdicava's 1997 Brunello di Montalcino is nearly a decade old, With its huge, earthy nose and layers of densely packed fruit it could easily be mist ...Read More »

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.

2006 Valdicava Brunello di Montalcino

Loads going on in this one." (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.

2013 Le Macchiole "Messorio" Bolgheri (Pre-Arrival)

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Messorio is a truly divine creation that puts Merlot on a well-deserved pedestal. 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.

2004 Valdicava "Madonna del Piano" Brunello di Montalcino Riserva

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2004 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Madonna del Piano continues to develop very positively. This huge, concentrated Madonna del Piano dazzles for the richness of its fruit and the delineation of its aromas. The clean, vibrant finish suggests many years of cellaring potential. The Valdicava Brunellos are often misunderstood when young because they possess so much richness, but with time in bottle the wines turn more delicate and complete. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2029.

1999 Tenuta dell'Ornellaia "Ornellaia" Bolgheri Superiore

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "I was blown away by the 1999 Ornellaia. Still fresh and youthful, it reveals a powerful, authoritative personality in its layers of primary fruit, with its opulence beautifully balanced by its big yet polished tannins. Another year or two of bottle age is probably called for but readers will have a hard time keeping their hands off this gorgeous wine. Given its considerable structure it should have no problem aging for another dozen years. In 1999 the blend consisted of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc.

2014 Ornellaia "Ornellaia" Bolgheri Superiore

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. More than anything else, this has to do with the very unique characteristics of the 2014 growing season. The wine opens to a beautifully saturated and dark appearance.

2004 Paolo Scavino "Rocche dell'Annunziata" Barolo Riserva

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2004 Barolo Riserva Rocche dell’Annunziata has developed beautifully since I last tasted it a few years ago. That said, I am amazed how bright and primary the fruit still is. Sweet, perfumed aromatics lead to a core of silky fruit as this elegant, pedigreed Barolo emerges from the glass. The tannins are exceptionally refined all the way through to the finish, while the French oak is virtually imperceptible. What remains is a gorgeous, fruit-driven Barolo that captures the essence of the Scavino style at its best. The wine should enjoy a long drinking ...Read More »

1990 Giuseppe Rinaldi Brunate Barolo Riserva
Bid on this bottle of 1990 Giuseppe Rinaldi Brunate Barolo Riserva (96RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1990 Barolo Riserva Brunate is very much a mirror image of the vintage; fat, rich and opulent, with gorgeous inner perfume and superb balance. It is awfully hard to pick a favorite here, as both wines are drop-dead gorgeous. Wow! Despite the wine’s huge fruit the tannins and structure remain formidable, and this is one case where the 1990 may very well age at the same pace as the 1989. In fact, this is one of the few 1990s that comes across as needing more time! In any event, the 1990 Barolo Riserva Brunate is a monumental, towering wine from one of Barolo’s icon producers.

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)

2015 Petrolo Galatrona 1.5L (Pre-Arrival)

96-97 points James Suckling: "The depth of fruit and intensity of tannins that set this Galatrona aside are some of the most impressive in years. Full body, velvety tannins and a long finish. A new 2004?" (10/2016)

2012 Miani Merlot Colli Orientali del Friuli Buri (Pre-Arrival)

98 points Vinous: "A wine of gravitas and pure power, the 2012 Merlot Buri offers up a heady concoction of black cherry jam, melted road tar, exotic spices, blood orange and graphite. Dark, sumptuous and totally beguiling, the 2012 will thrill readers lucky enough to find it. Time in the glass brings out the wilder and more mineral-drenched notes that are such signatures of this Merlot from old, terraced vines in Buttrio. (AG)" (3/2017)

2013 Miani Merlot Colli Orientali del Friuli Buri (Pre-Arrival)

97 points Vinous: "Crème de cassis, graphite, smoke, new leather, spice and blackberry jam are some of the many notes that develop in the 2013 Merlot Buri. Rich, dark, and creamy on the palate, the 2013 exudes depth. Even so, the young 2013 is far less tannic and concentrated than in the past. Tasted next to the Filip, the Buri is darker and quite bit bigger. Even so, there is more finesse in the 2013 than I have seen in the past, when the Buri has been much more tannic and overtly powerful. (AG)" (3/2017)

2013 Miani Merlot Colli Orientali del Friuli Fillip (Pre-Arrival)

94 points Vinous: "The 2013 Merlot Filip is going to need at least a few years to come into its own. Today, the wine is tightly wound and still in a phase of bottle shock. Savory aromatics, dried rose petal, bright red stone fruit and menthol open up over time, but only with great reluctance. The 2013 was more impressive when I tasted it from barrel. I suspect this needs time in bottle to be at its best. (AG) 94+" (3/2017)

2007 Aldo Conterno Barolo "Cicala" 1.5L (Pre-Arrival)

96 points James Suckling: "This is stunning, with licorice, flowers and dark fruits all over. Full and super silky and sexy. I am in love with this wine already. It will age for decades, but it is so in harmony and beautiful now. Gorgeous." (5/2011) 95 points Wine Spectator: "Scented with black cherry and plum, this international-style red shows plenty of smoky, toasty oak on the palate. It's rich, with sweet fruit, ample power and complexity, but will take some time to integrate the tannins. Best from 2016 through 2035. 300 cases imported. –BS" (4/2012) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2007 Barolo Cicala is every bit as compelling as the ...Read More »

2007 Quintodecimo Taurasi Vigna Quintodecemo Reserva

1998 Valdicava "Madonna del Piano" Brunello di Montalcino Riserva

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1998 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Madonna del Piano is a single-vineyard wine, very fine but from a good, instead of an excellent, vintage. The nose, though powerful, is more mineral and herbaceous, and though there are size and concentration to spare on the palate, the quality of the extraction and tannins is not at the level of the outstanding vintage which followed. But the weight and grip on the finish are impressive. (DT)" (4/2005) 91 points Wine Spectator: "Decadent aromas of very ripe fruit, tar and tobacco. Full-bodied, soft and round, with big, velvety tannins and a l ...Read More »
