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)

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.

2015 Ferrero "Pepita" Rosso di Toscana Top Pick!
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 »

2016 Fratelli Barale Dolcetto d'Alba "Le Rose"

Sergio Barale and his daughters manage the estate today."

2015 La Fortuna Rosso di Montalcino

Monica Larner provides the following update on La Fortuna: "Today, the estate counts 18 hectares of vines, of which 12 hectares are located in the northern area of the appellation. Another six hectares are located in the Castelnuovo dell'Abate sub zone. Wines are made from a blend of fruit from these two sites. The northern vineyard is found at 250 to 300 meters above sea level with limestone clay soils and marine fossils. The other parcel shows warmer average temperatures and soils mixed with Galestro stones. Angelo Zannoni says La Fortuna recently acqu... Read More »

On the bright, creamy palate, crisp acidity and a polished, foaming mousse offset green apple, white peach and citrus zest. (KO)" (12/2017) K&L Notes: San Venanzio has won many awards over the years. 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.

Tight, layered red. All there. Better in 2017." (11/2014) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2011 Fontalloro is a pure expression of Sangiovese with fruit sourced from the Chianti Classico area and the Colli Senesi area.

2016 Silvano Follador Prosecco Superiore Brut Nature Top Pick!
2016 Silvano Follador Prosecco Superiore Brut Nature

Just a note to clear up some nomenclature issues with this brand: Silvano Follador has added an extra word to their label, "Nature." It means that the finished wine has less than 3 grams per liter of residual sugar, even though their wines are Brut, and Brut can be decidedly higher. Nature is a designation that is more definitive. Most Prosecco is Extra Dry and that is 12-20 grams per liter which could go from dry-ish to outright sweet. Follador is looking to distance themselves from the rest of the pack, and in this vintage the residual sugar is 0.0%.

Careful work has been done here to ensure the high quality of fruit. The Fontalloro vineyard is located on the border of the Chianti Classico and the Chianti Colli Senesi appellations. Many have called upon Fèlsina to change the wine's status to Chianti Classico Gran Selezione, but technically it can't be because of much of the vineyard is located outside the denomination limi ...Read More »

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 »

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.

The Frescobaldis are one of Tuscany’s oldest wine families. They are based in Rufina, just east of Florence, and they have wineries in multiple zones across Italy. While their family history is definitely rooted in Florence, their estate in Montalcino, Castello di Nipozzano, defined Chianti Rufina in the US for decades. They are practiced royals, elegant and well spoken, even when it comes to sotto-voce, but when they talk about Montalcino there’s always a twinkle in their eyes.
