2012 Elio Grasso "Gavarini Chiniera" Barolo (Pre-Arrival)

Finely cut and chiseled, the Gavarini exudes energy and tension, both signatures of this high-altitude, Monforte site. Crushed flowers, dark red berries, mint, and crushed rocks are some of the signatures. So many 2012s are open-knit, but Grasso's Gavarini is going to need at least several years in barrel. If anything, the 2012 is a bit austere, but I say that in the best sense of the word. Exotic, alluring and totally stunning, the 2012 is a real knock-out. (AG ...Read More »

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 » 



2011 Poggio Antico Brunello di Montalcino (Pre-Arrival)

Why wait? (JS)" (2/2016) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2011 Brunello di Montalcino is a rich and luscious wine that pulls you in with the first sip.

2010 San Filippo "Le Lucere" Brunello di Montalcino Riserva (1.5L) (Pre-Arrival)

100 points James Suckling: "Amazing young Brunello with superb concentration and depth. Full body, chewy yet polished tannins and mineral, oyster shell and blueberry flavors. Goes on for minutes. Leave it until 2020 to open. A triumph." (10/2015) 96 points Wine Spectator: "The sweet, ripe fruit has an immediate impact, offering notes of cherry, strawberry and currant, followed by light oak spice, leather, tobacco and earth accents. The tannins peek through on the finish, but overall this is balanced and long. So harmonious that you may want to enjoy now, but this should only get better with time. Best from 201 ...Read More »

2011 San Filippo "Le Lucere" Brunello di Montalcino (Pre-Arrival)

92 points James Suckling: "A firm, silky wine with blueberry, dried mushroom and wet earth. Full-bodied, firm and silky. Long, delicious finish. Some orange peel too. Tight. Needs a year or two to soften. (JS)" (10/2015) 92 points Vinous: "The 2011 Brunello di Montalcino Le Lucere emerges from the estate's oldest vines. Here the balance of fruit and tannin is much more successful. Sensual and layered in the glass, the Lucere offers good up-front richness to match its creamy, inviting personality. Generous black cherry, plum, smoke, spice and menthol flesh out on a resonant finish laced with attractive ...Read More »

2011 Poggio Antico "Altero" Brunello di Montalcino (Pre-Arrival)

95 points James Suckling: "Fantastic aromas of bright black cherry and flowers. Very fragrant. Full body, firm and silky tannins. Extremely structured for a 2011. Wonderful length and beauty. Drink or hold. (JS)" (2/2016) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2011 Brunello di Montalcino Altero shows a slightly sharper side with tight aromas of white cherry, wild berry and red currant. As the wine takes on more air in the glass, it begins to show more elaborate aromas of spice, leather and pipe tobacco. Ironically, it tastes like a cool climate Brunello produced in a warm growing season. The higher altitudes at Poggi ...Read More »

2011 San Filippo Brunello di Montalcino (Pre-Arrival)

94 points James Suckling: "Lots of sliced mushroom, dark fruit and some bark. Full-bodied and very ripe with plum, prune and salt undertones. Chewy firmness. Wonderful backbone of tannins. Almost as good as the 2010. Drink now or hold. (JS)" (10/2015) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2011 Brunello di Montalcino is a little shy at first, but as the bouquet opens it reveals some ripe tones of blackberry preserves, cured meat and used leather...(ML)" (3/2016) Vinous: "The 2011 Brunello di Montalcino is fleshy and forward, with plenty of sweet red stone fruit, macerated cherry, tobacco, spice and plum fruit...Hints of crushed ...Read More »

2011 Bartolo Mascarello Barolo (1.5L) (Pre-Arrival)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2011 Barolo is a very expressive wine with more determination and muscle than you usually get in the wines of Bartolo Mascarello. The bouquet opens to plush flavors of red fruit and cherry with grilled herb, tobacco and mineral delineation. Its structure is yielding and round and the finish is ripe with soft fruit flavors. Make no mistake, it doles out complexity and an ethereal sense of balsam herb, cola and licorice that is the hallmark of this historic estate with a tiny garage winery in the town of Barolo. The alcohol reading here is 14.5% compar ...Read More »
