2014 San Guido "Sassicaia" Bolgheri

95 points Wine Enthusiast: "Aromas of red berry, blue flower, menthol, exotic spice and a whiff of French oak take shape on this impeccably balanced radiant red. The palate is vibrant and focused—almost ethereal—delivering raspberry compote, Marasca cherry, star anise and cinnamon framed in elegant tannins. Weightless and loaded with finesse, it's an incredible result for what was a cool wet vintage in most of Italy. (KO)" (12/2017) 93 points Decanter: "Relatively pale and limpid, this has a hauntingly beautiful aromatic quality of lilies, violet, cassis and cherry, which in sum is utterly beguiling.

2013 Luciano Sandrone "Aleste" (formerly "Cannubi Boschis") Barolo

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Formerly known as Barolo Cannubi Boschis (the last vintage by that name was 2012), the 2013 Barolo Aleste has been renamed to honor the youngest generation of the Sandrone family, Alessia and Stefano. The wine name Aleste takes the first three letters from each grandchild's name. The move represents the culmination of more than 50 harvests completed by this legendary winemaker and his desire to pass on the torch. His grandchildren are at different points in their respective viticulture and enology university studies. Now under a different name, the wine ...Read More »

2006 Elio Altare "Ceretta Vigna Bricco" Barolo (Pre-Arrival)

96 points Wine Spectator: "Fresh and aromatic, this red is packed with sweet cherry, leather, clove and iron flavors. Fused to a bed of stiff, mouthcoating tannins, with a long aftertaste of sweet spice and mineral. Still a baby, but well-balanced and beginning to develop. (BS)" (3/2013)

2015 Tua Rita "Redigaffi" Toscana (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
2015 Tua Rita "Redigaffi" Toscana (Pre-Arrival)

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. The 2015 Redigaffi is a blockbuster, a beautiful and expressive blockbuster at that. This vintage delivers a u ...Read More »

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 »

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 »

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."

2014 Ornellaia "Ornellaia" Bolgheri Superiore Top Pick!
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.

2013 Le Macchiole "Messorio" Bolgheri (1.5L)

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. But this current release presents a more delineated sense of freshness ...Read More »

2012 La Massa "Giorgio Primo" Toscana 3.0L

95 points James Suckling: "Beautiful, complex aromas of blueberry, blackberry and black licorice follow through to a full body, ultra-refined tannins and a finish that lasts for minutes. 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. In a recent past vintage, I had criticized this wine for being over the top, but Giampaolo Motta has refined his winemaking approach to better harness the elegance and fines ...Read More »

2006 Massolino "Vigna Rionda" Barolo Riserva (Pre-Arrival)

95 points Vinous: "The 2006 Barolo Riserva Vigna Rionda is young. Very young. Today the fruit remains quite primary and the aromatics have yet to develop. Still, it is impossible not to admire the wine's structure and the sheer integrity of its fruit. I especially like the way the 2006 continues to open up as it sits in the glass. This is a hugely promising wine from the Massolino brothers, but readers will have to be patient. (AG) 95+" (4/2012)

94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright deep red. Complex nose melds dark cherry, tobacco, coffee and a hint of exotic fruits, with almost peppery lift. 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.

2010 Ceretto Bricco Rocche "Prapo" Barolo (Pre-Arrival)

96 points Vinous: "The 2010 Barolo Prapò is one of the most beautiful young Barolos I have tasted from Ceretto in a long time. Deep, layered and beautifully expressive, yet also mysterious, the 2010 exudes class and that warm, Serralunga resonance that is unique to the Barolos of the village. Sage, roasted coffee beans, licorice and new leather are some of the notes that emerge over time, all framed by firm, muscular tannins that suggest a long life lies ahead. Today, the 2010 Prapò is majestic. It also has plenty of room to grow from here. 96+" (1/2014) 94 points Wine Spectator: "HOT WINE: A mix of c ...Read More »

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)

1990 Tenuta San Guido "Sassicaia" Bolgheri

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This is a beautiful wine that has passed the test of time with flying colors. The 1990 Sassicaia is a thrilling expression that opens to succulent darkness and deep layers of ripe fruit opulence. Dried blackberry, plum and black currant keep the fruit profile high. Background notes of cumin, exotic spice and cured tobacco add power and weight. Lighter tones of balsam herb and crushed mineral are important components of the wine's elegance. The mouthfeel is structured and richly textured, but balanced by its acidity. Back when Robert Parker first reviewed ...Read More »

Deep and fantastic. Savory. 20% whole berry. Best ever? Made from organic grapes." (8/2017) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tua Rita's Syrah is quickly reaching quality levels that could put it ahead of the estate's celebrated Merlot Redigaffi. In fact, I approached this tasting of warm-vintage releases with special curiosity and anticipation for this particular wine over the others (based on how well Syrah does in ho ...Read More »

2001 Giacomo Conterno "Cascina Francia" Barolo

94 points 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! ...Read More »

2001 Emidio Pepe Montepulciano d'Abruzzo

Hide this in the cellar for a few years. (NW, Web-2013)" 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This bottle (#31310) of Emidio Pepe’s 2001 Montepulciano d’Abruzzo is incredibly dark in color. It is a rich, concentrated wine bursting with black cherries, smoke, tar and underbrush. This is normally a more restrained wine, but this particular bottle was especially rich and dense.

2009 Vietti "Villero" Barolo Riserva

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "In a word, the 2009 Barolo Riserva Villero is magic. I'm not sure I understand how Luca Currado does it. With his wizard's wand, he achieves a level of purity and intensity that I have rarely ever seen in Barolo or any other Italian appellation for that matter. The wine is centered and balanced at its core, but its aromas and flavors are absolutely explosive at the same time. The bouquet delivers dark fruit, tobacco, white truffle, balsam herb and grilled rosemary. The tannins are structured with a vein of supple sweetness. This wine undergoes malolactic ...Read More »

2014 Gaja Barbaresco

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) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Gaia Gaja tells me 2014 was one of the best vintages ever in Barba ...Read More »

Bid on this bottle of 2004 Tenuta San Guido "Sassicaia" Bolgheri (97ST, 97WE, 94JS, 94WS, 93RP). Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Deep ruby-red. Captivatingly intense yet refined aromas of ripe red cherry, mint, smoke and black truffle, complicated by lovely mineral and floral elements. Ripe, rich and velvety on entry, then concentrated in the middle, with flavors of red cherry, cassis, spices, bay leaf, dark chocolate and espresso. Amazingly well balanced and fresh wine, with sound, bright acids supplying wonderful lift and precision and smooth, noble tannins adding considerable power and grace. The finish goes on for minutes, highlighted by an enchanting floral-mineral quality; in my experience, the appearance of this strong floral component (in the absence of herbal or peppery aromas and flavors more typical of lesser vintages) at this early stage of development is typical of the greatest versions of Sassicaia. One of the top dozen Sassicaia bottlings ever." (01/2011

Finishes with fine-grained tannins and lingering notes of minerals, herbs, dried flowers and smoke. Displays lovely balance and good length on the rich, seamless, creamy-ripe finish, which exhibits a lingering menthol note that reminded me of a Napa cabernet. The 2000 vintage was a warm one, especially in August, with some varieties such as merlot reaching high sugar levels before full polyphenolic maturity was achieved.

Because of its greater power and richness, the tannins are nearly buried by the fruit. Here, too, the 1999 has moved on from its primary stage, but it is not mature, either.

2006 Gaja "Conteisa" Nebbiolo Langhe (Pre-Arrival)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2006 Langhe Conteisa is a beautifully firm, transparent wine endowed with expressive red fruits, menthol, flowers and licorice. The 2006 is decidedly more reticent than the 2007, but it shows tons of harmony, length and class. The finish is utterly seductive. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2026. (AG)" (2/2010) 93 points Vinous: "Medium red, less saturated than Gaja's wines from Barbaresco. Highly complex nose offers dark chocolate, truffle, minerals and flowers, along with a slight suggestion of dried fruits. Rich and deep but tightly wound; less floral in the mouth today th ...Read More »

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) 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Galatrona is one of the best Merlots made in Italy (definitely in the top five) and this vintage keeps the banner flying high. The 2015 Galatrona is luscious, soft ...Read More »

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) 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Saffredi is a sultry and velvety wine from the Tuscan Coast. The blend is 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Me ...Read More »

1998 Bruno Giacosa "Santo Stefano" Barbaresco Riserva
Bid on this bottle of 1998 Bruno Giacosa "Santo Stefano" Barbaresco Riserva (94ST, 94VN, 93WS, 92RP). Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Medium red. Deep, expressive aromas of red fruits, minerals, dried flowers, roasted herbs, tar and camphor; I might have picked this blind as Barolo. Complex, penetrating, traditionally made wine with great verve and insinuating inner-mouth perfume. Urgent cherry, floral and spice flavors. Hugely tannic and very long; this multidimensional Barbaresco went into a shell in the glass. My score may prove to be conservative. (ST) 94+" (11/2002)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1999 Soldera (Case Basse) Brunello di Montalcino Riserva (95RP, 91WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1999 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is an unquestionable success. It displays heady, complex aromas of smoke, tar and scorched earth, along with plenty of sweet dark fruit and tobacco flavors, in a potent, brooding style showing a rich inner tension between its fruit and the structure of the vintage. It should drink well to age twenty-five. Even though it carries an exorbitant price tag, the Riserva is well worth the extra dollars in vintage 1999. A great effort. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2024."

2001 Bruno Giacosa "Asili" Barbaresco
Bid on this bottle of 2001 Bruno Giacosa "Asili" Barbaresco (96VN, 95RP, 94ST, 93WS). Vinous: "Giacosa’s 2001 Barbaresco Asili graces the palate with dried rose petals, sweet tobacco, incense, smoke and orange peel. Just entering the early part of its drinking window, the 2001 is utterly mesmerizing in the glass. It is a bit more tannic than the 2007. At this stage, I would let the 2001 develop more complexity in the cellar. The Giacosa Asili is a wine best tasted young or with a decade plus of bottle age because the years between those stages can be a bit awkward. Still, the 2001 is magnificent. " (12/2013)

1971 Bartolo Mascarello Barolo (1.5L) (Pre-Arrival)

95 points Vinous: "The bottle, which I purchased at the estate recently, is remarkable itself. At Mascarello the 1.9 liter format was used prior to 1980. The bottle is covered by a layer of dust. There is no label per se, just the numbers “71” written on the bottle in chalk. An index card with the estate's information is tied and secured to the bottle with a wax seal. The cork is also covered with wax. Following Mascarello's suggestion, the wine was stored upright for several weeks prior to opening. The wine was decanted immediately prior to serving. Needless to say it was ...Read More »
