2015 Albatreti Rosso di Montalcino

Monty Waldin writes: "Albatreti is an estate winery in Montalcino in Tuscany, Italy. The estate is named after a woodland plant, l’albatro, which is from the same family as the strawberry tree. The vineyards of the estate are west-facing to the Tyrrhenian sea. 450 metres (1,476 feet). Some of the vines are in a dip. At Benvenuto Brunello 2015 Gaetano told me there were 32 hectares (79 acres) of land of which 5 hectares (12.35 acres) are Sangiovese and the rest (apart from some olives) is woodland. All the vines were planted from 1999 in what was an olive... Read More »

2012 Poggiarellino Brunello di Montalcino Top Pick!
2012 Poggiarellino Brunello di Montalcino

93 points James Suckling: "Aromas of plums and fresh thyme follow through to a medium to full body, chewy tannins and a lightly austere finish. Needs time to soften. Drink in 2020." (11/2016) 93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Underbrush, leather, sun-baked soil and chopped herb aromas emerge from this structured red. Loaded with personality, the palate delivers juicy layers of ripe Morello cherry, crushed raspberry, baking spice and pipe tobacco flavors, framed by firm, chewy tannins. It's a full-bodied wine that will reward several more years of cellaring. Drink 2019–2032. *Cellar Selection* (KO)" (1/2017)

At K&L they get the coveted "Guido" award of two thumbs up and three stars for value. On the nose, there are generous notes of apples, peaches, tropical fruits and pear blossom. It’s wonderfully balanced and elegant, with a pleasurable spiciness. The palate is rich and creamy, w... Read More »

2016 Ermacora Pinot Grigio Colli Orientali del Friuli

Dario Ermacora was one of our first Italian Direct Imports. His wines have always been textbook, classic, and archetypal for Friulian whites: understated, balanced, with a long finish. His winery is in the Colli Orientali del Friuli, or the Eastern Hills of Friuli, a few scant kilometers from the Slovenian border. Most of Friuli is a flat, glaciated plain running from the Julian Alps down to the top of the Adriatic Sea, but on the eastern border the topography changes.

2015 Ferrero "Pepita" Rosso di Toscana

I've always loved this wine ever since we helped create it. Pablo Harri, the winemaker and husband of the eponymous Claudia Ferrero, had planted a vineyard just south across the river from their estate in Montalcino with 35% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Montepulciano and 17% Alicante grapes. Initially he produced 100% varietals from each that were good and even well scored with the critics, but they were impossible to sell. We were all sitting at a table at the winery when I thought: what if we just blend them all together? So I grabbed some gla... Read More »

The northern vineyard is found at 250 to 300 meters above sea level with limestone clay soils and marine fossils.

Blason Isonzo Bianco (3L Bag-in-a-Box) (cannot ship)

This three-liter box is 100% Friulano (though it cannot be labeled as such because the DOC's laws do not recognize box wine, as of yet). I think there is no tastier, more versatile white wine in our store right now that beats this Bianco for value and pure drinkability. It combines the body, weight and richness of what California Chardonnay feels like with the minerality and freshness of how Pinot Grigio tastes, which just makes it the perfect cocktail white. It is ideal for keeping in the fridge (I've tasted them after they've been open for 6 months and... Read More »

Once harvested the juice undergoes fermentation in stainless steel to preserve the purity of the Nebbiolo, and then rests for several months in a mix of barriques and large barrels.
