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." (8/2017) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Argiano has been doing terrific work lately with this historic blend of Cabernet Sauvignon with Petit Verdot, Syrah and Merlot. The 2015 Solengo is especially exuberant, concentrated and dark in this ...Read More »

2013 Castello dei Rampolla "Vigna d'Alceo" Toscana (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
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 »

2013 Silvio Nardi Brunello di Montalcino (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
2013 Silvio Nardi Brunello di Montalcino (Pre-Arrival)

93 points Vinous: "Deep red. Enticing aromas of perfumed red cherry, sweet spices and aromatic woods. Clean, fresh and vibrant, featuring juicy red cherry and mineral flourishes on the long, juicy, bright finish. Outstanding classic Brunello that has the high acidity and lithe frame of the vintage but also more meat than most. Lovely wine and the best classic Brunello from Nardi in years. (ID)" (4/2018) 93 points Wine Spectator: "Enticing aromas and flavors of cherry, leather, iron and tobacco mark this structured red. Balanced and firm, with a long and tannic, yet fresh, finish. (BS)" (3/2018) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tenute S ...Read More »

2013 Banfi Brunello di Montalcino (Pre-Arrival)

95 points James Suckling: "Ripe cherry and walnut with fresh herb undertones and spice. Full body, extremely fine tannins and a silky, textured finish. Very classic and balanced. Beautifully crafted. Drink or hold." (11/2017) Vinous: "Bright dark red. Savory herbs, tar and red cherry on the simple but pleasant nose. Flavors similar to the aromas and a suave, bright, easy-to-drink quality make for a Brunello that can be enjoyed now. (ID)" (4/2018) Wine Enthusiast: "Forest floor, wild berry, coffee and toasted oak aromas come together on this. The medium-bodied palate is on the lean side, offering sour cherry, t ...Read More »

2016 San Guido "Le Difese" Bolgheri (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
2016 San Guido "Le Difese" Bolgheri (Pre-Arrival)

92-93 points James Suckling: "Very aromatic and bright with strawberry, cherry and currant character. Hints of oranges. Full-bodied, linear and tight, showing ultra-fine tannins. Potential here." (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 »

2013 Poggio San Polo Brunello di Montalcino (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
2013 Poggio San Polo Brunello di Montalcino (Pre-Arrival)

96 points James Suckling: "Aromas of plum, dried meat, flower and figs. Full body, velvety and chewy tannins. So much fruit and intensity. I love the generous fruit and form to this wine. Drink in 2021." (11/2017) 92 points Vinous: "Deep red. Woodsy nuances of underbrush and potpourri complicate aromas of cherry kirsch and licorice. Then youthfully chewy in the mouth, featuring red cherry and licorice flavors similar to the aromas. Finishes with lively acidity and repeating licorice notes on the long back end, which also delivers some alcohol-derived heat. (ID)" (4/2018)
