2012 San Guido "Sassicaia" Bolgheri

99 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* One of Italy’s most iconic bottlings, the 2012 Sassicaia is drop-dead gorgeous. A blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Cabernet Franc, it boasts sensations of blue flowers, cedar, juicy red currants, ripe raspberries, white pepper and a balsamic note. Structured, radiant and loaded with finesse, it delivers everything you’d expect from a world-class wine and more. Drink 2018–2032." (8/2015)95 points James Suckling: "Lots of lavender, minerals and black currants on the nose. Turns to black berries. Full body, ultra-refined tannins and an exquisite finish. This ...Read More »

2010 Valdicava Brunello di Montalcino (Pre-Arrival)

99 points James Suckling: "Absolutely stunning aromas of nectarine, orange peel, sweet black cherry, plums and flowers. Licorice and mushroom It's full body, with layers of ultra-fine tannins and hints of tangy acidity. Such beautiful length and beauty to this wine. It's powerful and structured yet shows a gorgeous finesse and length. Truly wondrous. So long and refined. The texture is phenomenal. Better in 2016."

2011 Antinori "Solaia" Toscana (Previously $220.00) Top Pick!
2011 Antinori "Solaia" Toscana (Previously $220.00)

96 points Antonio Galloni: "Blackberry jam, cassis, grilled herbs and melted road tar meld together in the 2011 Solaia. Another super-exotic, racy 2011 from Antinori, Solaia is supremely beautiful. Mocha, espresso and sage are some of the many notes that add complexity. Hints of white truffle, lavender, smoke and licorice are laced into the exotic, racy finish. In 2011, Solaia has a dollop more of Cabernet Franc in the blend, added to give the wine a touch of freshness. Ripe and flashy to the core, the 2011 needs time to lose some of its youthful exuberance. At times, the 2011 coul ...Read More »

2009 Valdicava "Madonna del Piano" Brunello di Montalcino Riserva (Previously $225.00)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Madonna del Piano is an expressive and articulate wine that speaks highly of Sangiovese and the Montalcino territory. The wine offers a pristine narrative of both grape and place with crystalline aromas of cherry, blackberry, spice, leather, smoke and Mediterranean herb. The bouquet peels back one delicious layer at a time. The mouthfeel is similarly successful with deep concentration and complexity. It imparts soft layers of dried fruit and velvety tannins. Endnotes of espresso bean and toasted almond add length a ...Read More »

2011 Luciano Sandrone "Le Vigne" Barolo (Pre-Arrival)

96 points Antonio Galloni: "Sandrone's 2011 Barolo Le Vigne is sweet, silky and exceptionally polished in the glass. Sweet floral notes, bright red berries, subtle spices and mint are all laced together nicely in the glass. Le Vigne is a blend of fruit from multiple vineyard sources. This is the first year in which Villero is part of the blend. (AG)" (3/2015)94 points James Suckling: "A wonderfully tight and polished young red with dark berry, plum and citrus character.

2009 Aldo Conterno "Colonnello" Barolo

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Barolo Colonnello is destined to occupy a special place in my heart as it turned out to be the first sample in my opening blind flight as Italian reviewer with The Wine Advocate. Darkly concentrated and rich, it sets the stage beautifully for 2009 Barolo thanks to its enormous grace, power and elegance. Where it really wins praise, however, is in the mouth. It shows solid grip and firm tannic tenacity that is bold and muscular without going over the top. It moves steadily over the palate in an exceptional manner. The bouquet opens to wild cherry ...Read More »

2006 Giuseppe Quintarelli Amarone della Valpolicella Classico

"It's great to see Quintarelli back on track after a series of challenging events, including the passing of Giuseppe Quintarelli and his wife in rapid succession," writes Antonio Gallin, in Vinous. "Today, Quintarelli's grandson Francesco, appears to have the estate under firm control. The construction of a new, modern cellar is a sign of investment in the future, which is of course great to see. As for the wines, well, they have no peers. Once readers acquire a taste for these heady wines there is no turning back. It's as simple as that." Mr. Galloni di... Read More »

Excellent structure and mouthfeel. A cooler style of Ornellaia, bringing it back to the classicism of this celebrated region. Bordeaux blend. Better in 2018." (8/2015)

2009 Produttori del Barbaresco Barbaresco (3L)

93 points Wine Spectator: "*Highly Recommended* Bright cherry, strawberry, floral, licorice and herbal aromas and flavors highlight this fragrant, elegant red, which is silky and pure, with fine ripe tannins for support. Shows excellent length, with an aftertaste of fruit, spice and mineral. Best from 2015 through 2028." (4/2014)92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Barbaresco shows personality and good cheer with a good dose of dried fruit and savory spice. There are some elements that make the wine seem more aged than it really is. Cured meat and old leather emerge. But then the wine suddenly surprises you w ...Read More »

2009 Aldo Conterno "Cicala" Barolo

94 points Antonio Galloni: "An aromatically beguiling wine, the 2009 Barolo Cicala is laced with dark plums, truffles, tar, incense and a host of other balsamic-infused aromas. Today, the fruit lies a bit in the background, while the wine's aromatics and overall structure are much more in evidence. I imagine the 2009 will require at least a few more years in bottle to flesh out, but it is quite beautiful, even at this stage. There is a weightless tension in the 2009 that is remarkable."

2010 Ceretto "Bricco Rocche" Barolo

96 points Antonio Galloni: "Sweet tobacco, freshly cut flowers, rose petals and sweet red berries, all framed by silky tannins are the signatures in Ceretto's 2010 Barolo Bricco Rocche. Graced with exquisite finesse, the Bricco Rocche offers a little more textural polish than the Prapò at this early stage. At the same time, elements of intrigue remain, suggesting the 2010 isn't showing all of its cards just yet. Overall, this is a fairly dark Barolo for the site at this stage, although the wine does open up very nicely with time in the glass. Sweet floral and spice notes are woven ...Read More »

Such a gorgeous, exciting wine. Long and caressing. Turns savory and succulent. Fantastic. Greatest wine ever from here. Drink or hold." (1/2015)94 points Wine Spectator: "This red exhibits harmony from the outset, with sweet plum and cherry jam flavors, accented by licorice and leather aromas. The focus intensifies as this evolves on the palate, leaving a firm, tightly wound finish. Hangs together nicely, so give this so ...Read More »

1999 Gaja "Sperss" Nebbiolo Langhe

96 points Antonio Galloni: "A vivid, super-expressive wine, the 1999 Sperss is in a beautiful place right now. The flavors are remarkably nuanced in the glass. Precise but also broad and structured, the Sperss pulses with dark fleshed fruit and plenty of tar, licorice, incense and smoke overtones. What a gorgeous wine this is." (8/2014)95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "1999 Langhe Sperss—Dark ruby. The 1999 Sperrs displays much Serralunga character in its licorice, asphalt, herb, and sweet dark fruit flavors, with notable persistence on the palate and a potent personality.

2010 Le Ragnaie Brunello di Montalcino (1.5L)

Full body, velvety tannins and a long, long finish. Amazing quality. Goes on for minutes. Made from biodynamically grown grapes." (12/2014)95 points Antonio Galloni: "The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino is gorgeous.

Compact and dense, yet racy and refined. Not the perfect 2001, but very close. Best after 2013. 2,680 cases made." (10/2013)96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2004 Masseto is all silk and elegance. The 2004 is arguably the most finessed, silky Masseto ever made.

2010 Banfi "Poggio alle Mura" Brunello di Montalcino 1.5L (Pre-Arrival)

A wine that shows such layered, in-depth character. Tight and exciting. Give it three to four years more before drinking." (12/2014)95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The special vineyard selection 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Poggio Alle Mura opens to brooding dark concentration and an impressive sense of depth.

A real beauty that grows and grows on the palate. Great Nebbiolo. Greatest Costa Russi ever, from 34-year-old vines. Best after 2010." (7/2004)94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2000 Costa Russi comes across as rich, dense and powerful, with impressive depth in its dark fruit. As always, Costa Russi is the most forward of Gaja’s single-vineyard wines from Barbaresco. The intensity of the fruit carries through nicely to the fin ...Read More »

2011 Vietti "Brunate" Barolo

96 points James Suckling: "A beautiful purity of fruit to this young Barolo with ripe strawberries, citrus, flowers and spice. Full body, integrated tannins and a long finish. Need another two or three years to soften." (4/2015)93 points Antonio Galloni: "A dark, exotic Barolo, the 2011 Brunate boasts tons of density and volume. Black cherry, plum, spice, licorice, new leather and menthol are some of the many nuances that flesh out in the glass. Ultimately, though, the 2011 is largely defined by the texture and amplitude of the year. Brunate is often slow out of the gate, so I will not be surprised if that is ...Read More »

It just makes you jump to attention. So lively and gorgeous. Drink or hold." (1/2015)94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tassi's 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Franci opens to medium body and savory tones of Indian spice, dried fruit, licorice and dark cola. The balsam herb intensity is very attractive. This wine veers toward the ethereal and away from the obvious fruit and berry tones you get with less sophisticated Sangiovese.

2000 Pianpolvere Soprano Barolo Bussia Riserva

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "When I asked Bruno Giacosa to name the top terroirs in Barolo he replied Pianpolvere, followed by Falletto, Vigna Rionda and Bussia. That is quite a statement. Today Pianpolvere Soprano is owned by the Migliorini family, proprietors of Rocche dei Manzoni. Pianpolvere Soprano’s 2000 Barolo Bussia Riserva is a terrific wine. It possesses gorgeous inner perfume to its ripe fruit, spices and sweet toasted oak. It is still primary and could use another few years to develop more nuance.

(10/2008)93 points Antonio Galloni: "The 2005 Solaia is arguably the most complete of this flight of underrated vintages.

Always a fabulous wine." (7/2014)92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Classic varietal aromas include stone fruit, crushed tomato vine, freshly cut grass and green melon. The palate offers a depth of flavors that include creamy white peach and ripe cantaloupe that are brightened by firm acidity. It closes on a flinty mineral note." (6/2014)

Almost indescribably beautiful, the 2010 is a classic, austere Biondi Santi Brunello built to age. Although the 2010 is going to require considerable patience, its pedigree is quite apparent today.

2011 Montevertine "Le Pergole Torte" Toscana Rosso

97 points Antonio Galloni: "A vivid, beautiful wine, the 2011 Pergole Torte is superb. Warm, early-maturing harvests often attenuate the differences between sites, but not here. The old vines weathered the heat better, resulting in a wine that is very much in line with the past, but with more body, amplitude and resonance. Rose petals, bright red stone fruits and mint are some of the many notes that grace the super-expressive finish. The 2011 spent one year in French oak barrels and a second year in cask.

There is notable clarity and precision in the wine’s red fruit, smoke, minerals, tobacco and spices. The signature Tignanello elegance is there, the only question is whether there is enough sheer density to stand up to the wine’s structural components. Today my impression is that there is not, but I still have high expectations for this vintage considering how wines from far lesser years have developed. Antic... Read More »

In 1997 the grapes were very small because the intense heat of the year dehydrated the fruit. Dark red berries, pomegranate, spices, smoke, licorice, anise and rose petals burst from the glass with notable energy, power and grace. Even with all of its intensity, the 1997 is beautifully balanced from start to finish. This racy, full-bodied Flaccianello can be enjoyed today or cellared for up to a decade."

2010 Pieve Santa Restituta (Gaja) "Rennina" Brunello di Montalcino

The Rennina single vineyard is said to be more feminine compared to the bolder fruit sourced in the nearby Sugarille cru. But in the 2010 vintage, you definitely get a compelling sense of power, density and extraction. What distinguishes the wine is the delicate mineral signature that appears through the thick texture of the fruit. It's like background music that gives cozy ambiance to an elaborately furnished ballroom. I consider the 2010 Rennina a masterpiece and, again, I j ...Read More »

The energy and focus here are both attractive, while the oak seems to have come down, all of which adds up to a wine with terrific overall balance.

1999 Antinori "Tignanello" Toscana
Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 1999 Antinori "Tignanello" Toscana (94RP, 90WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The estate’s 1999 Tignanello is a wine in which the Sangiovese plays a leading role. Classic notes of tobacco, dried cherries, spices, leather and underbrush all emerge from this sweet, layered offering. This richly textured generous Tignanello has put on significant weight in bottle and shows remarkable overall balance. In 1999 Tignanello comes across as more complete than Solaia. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2017." (01/2009)

2003 Feudi di San Gregorio "Serpico" Irpinia
Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2003 Feudi di San Gregorio "Serpico" Irpinia (92RP, 91WE, 90WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2003 is a fascinating Serpico. The wine boasts impressive concentration in its dark, rich fruit. This is an incredibly primary Serpico, with little in the way of tertiary development. Ideally, it is best left alone for another few years, but readers fortunate enough to own this are in for a thrilling ride once the wine opens up a bit. Today it remains tightly coiled but full of potential. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2023. (AG)" (08/2010)

2008 Tenuta San Guido "Sassicaia" Bolgheri New!
2008 Tenuta San Guido "Sassicaia" Bolgheri

97 points Wine Enthusiast: "**Cellar Selection** Recently implemented winemaker and cellar changes make this one of the best Sassicaias ever. This Cabernet Sauvignon-Cabernet Franc blend delivers thick concentration and sun-kissed aromas of black fruit, prune, dried bay leaf, black olive and tobacco. The thick, fertile soils that characterize the magical strip of coastal Tuscany at Bolgheri help shape amazing richness and intensity." (2/2012)96 points James Suckling: "Intense flavors of blackberries and flowers. Sexy and dressed up to go out. Full and velvety. Intense and juicy with velvety tannins and a long ...Read More »

2006 Tenuta San Guido "Sassicaia" Bolgheri New!
2006 Tenuta San Guido "Sassicaia" Bolgheri

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2006 Sassicaia may very well go down as one of the all-time great recent vintages for this Tuscan thoroughbred. The year started off very warm but by August evening temperatures had moderated, leaving the fruit with a stunning combination of ripeness, perfume, acidity and tannin. The wine is simply glorious, that’s all there is to it. Layers of dark fruit meld into smoke, leather, violets, menthol, earthiness and tar as this profound wine opens up in the glass. The creamy, silky finish lasts an eternity, as waves of fruit caress the tannins with brea ...Read More »

2010 Antinori "Solaia" Toscana

98 points James Suckling: "A triumph for Solaia. It suggests the greatness of the legendary 1997 Solaia. This is a wine with very subtle and complex aromas and flavors with currants, licorice and raspberries. Wonderful nose. Full body, with ultra-fine tannins and a long, long finish. It lasts for minutes on the palate. Love this wine. The precision of the cabernet sauvignon comes through here. Better in 2016." (9/2013)97 points Antonio Galloni: "The 2010 Solaia is even better than the Tignanello. Here, too, it is the wine's energy and sheer vibrancy that stand out most. Blackberry jam, graphite, tar, espresso ...Read More »

2006 Valdicava "Madonna del Piano" Brunello di Montalcino Riserva

100 points James Suckling: "I tasted this about a year ago at the winery and I was blown away. This time I tasted it in a blind tasting in Tuscany and it stood above the rest. Amazing aromas of blueberries and flowers, with black truffles and pie. Foie gras, mushrooms and white truffles too. Powerful, with great depth of gorgeous fruit and ultra-fine tannins. It fills your mouth with fruit and ripe tannins. Complex and long. A breathtaking wine. Truly glorious. Better in 2015."

1996 Tenuta San Guido "Sassicaia" Back In Stock!
1996 Tenuta San Guido "Sassicaia"

91 points Wine Spectator: "A well-structured Sass, with plenty of blackberry and dried herb character. Full-bodied, with plenty of ripe tannins and a currant bush and herb finish. Give it time to develop. Best after 2001." (11/1999) Jancis Robinson: "Again very little sign of ageing in the colour. Distinctive slightly medicinal nose. Herbal but also dark cherries and olives and elegant on the nose. Dry tannins perhaps just starting to take the upper hand. But there’s also dark cherry fruit on the palate and a fresh, surprisingly fluid finish with that fresh acidity even with the dryness of the tannin ...Read More »
