2013 Altesino Brunello di Montalcino (Pre-Arrival, Elsewhere $55)

95 points Wine Spectator: "An intense perfume of juniper, bay laurel, sage, rose and berries marks this silky red.

2015 Fattoria Le Pupille "Saffredi" Maremma Toscana (Pre-Arrival, Elsewhere $90)

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.

A pretty and focused red that needs two or three years to soften." (11/2017) 92 points Vinous: "Deep red. Violet, sour red cherry and flint on the lively nose.

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 »

Complex and succulent on the finish. Drink or hold." (6/2016) 94 points Vinous: "Fuligni's 2007 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is simply stunning.

2013 Poderi Colla "Bussia Dardi Le Rose" Barolo (Pre-Arrival)

96 points Vinous: "Colla's 2013 Barolo Bussia Dardi Le Rose is a knock-out. Intensely sweet and perfumed, the 2013 reminds me of some of the most profound Barolos and Barbarescos I have tasted. Ripe red cherry, pipe tobacco, mint, dried rose petal, orange peel and anise are some of the endless nuances that seem to develop in the glass. The 2013 is a wine of depth, pedigree and class. It should provide thrilling drinking for a number of years. This is a regal wine in every way. Don't miss it.

2013 Produttori del Barbaresco "Ovello" Barbaresco Riserva (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)

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)

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.

The radiant, elegant palate doles out succulent Marasca cherry, raspberry compote, cinnamon and licorice while firm, glossy tannins and racy acidity lend an age-worthy structure and balance.

(BS)" (2/2018) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This is a new product that is hitting the market for the first time. The 2013 Barolo Proprietà in Fontanafredda is unique in that the vineyard cru is within the property of this single estate.

The bouquet is detailed and fine with bright accents of fragrant red rose, red currant, cola, licorice, grilled herb and crushed white peppercorn.

2014 Fontodi "Flaccianello della Pieve" Toscana (Pre-Arrival)

96 points Vinous: "The 2014 Flaccianello della Pieve will probably drink well a bit earlier than the Vigna del Sorbo, as it has more midpalate creaminess, softer contours and a slightly more immediate personality. Even so, the translucent finesse of the vintage is very much in evidence. A rush of black cherry, plum, tobacco, licorice, chocolate and spice infuses the sweet, creamy finish. The 2014 spent 18 months in oak (less than was once the norm), 80% of it new.

(9/2017) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Sangiovese, the 2016 Le Difese shows a more evident touch of ripe fruit that you don't perceive in the Guidalberto, which makes me think it comes from the Sangiovese component that is only used in this wine. The overall effect of that ripeness is that it downplays the wine's inner complexity. But this entry-level red from Tenuta San Guido was never ai ...Read More »

This is a return to the great Solengos of the mid-1990s. The best since 1997. Cabernet sauvignon 50%, petit verdot 30%, merlot 15% and sangiovese 5%. Drinkable now but better in 2020."

The not so good news, if I can say that, is that the 2013 is likely to require a number of years before it can be truly appreciated, much less enjoyed. Vertical and explosive on the palate, the 2013 is a huge wine. Black cherry, plum, graphite, licorice and dark spices emerge over time, but only with great reluctance.

99 points James Suckling: "A stunning wine. This is the best Testamatta ever made. Fascinating aromas of red fruits, tea, bark and wet soil as well as fresh leather. Full body, silky tannins and a juicy finish. I love the tension and texture of this great red. So gorgeous to taste now but better in 2021. *Top 100 of 2017*" (8/2017) K&L Notes: Once a blend, Graetz made the conversion to 100% Sangiovese in Testamatta starting in 2006 and notched a WS98 score that placed it among the top single-varietal Sangiovese bottlings from this great vintage. A track record of successes followed with each ... Read More »

2013 Giovanni Manzone "Bricat" Barolo (Pre-Arrival)

95 points Vinous: "Dark cherry, plum, lavender, mint, wild herbs and smoke infuse the 2013 Barolo Bricat. Dark, powerful and brooding, but also very much medium-bodied in structure, the 2013 is wonderfully complete and full of allure. There is plenty of tannin, but the wine is impeccably balanced from start to finish. The darker and more muscular side of Gramolere comes through very nicely. There is so much to like, but the 2013 also shuts down quickly in the glass, which suggests it is likely to require a good few years in bottle to fully come together.

2013 Giovanni Manzone "Gramolere" Barolo (Pre-Arrival)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This is Giovanni Manzone's headline Barolo. At 13,000 bottles made per year, production numbers are more than double the other Barolos in his portfolio, so this wine is reasonably easy to locate as a result. The 2013 Barolo Gramolere is an articulate and exuberant expression of contemporary Nebbiolo. It sees a 40-day maceration period for extra color and structure, plus 30 months aging in both botte grande and tonneaux. It reveals a dark color and medium body with black cherry, spice and licorice aromas that lift elegantly from the bouquet. (ML) ...Read More »

Turns polished and agreeable on the finish. Drink in 2018." (7/2017) 94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Wild berry, aromatic herb, crushed blue flower and exotic spice aromas lead the way in this full-bodied wine. It delivers ripe but elegant Marasca cherry, cranberry, licorice and vanilla hints framed by taut, fine-grained tannins that lend structure and finesse. Drink 2021-2033.
