94 points Antonio Galloni: "Castello di Bossi's 2009 Merlot Girolamo is undeniably sexy. Plump, juicy and wonderfully expressive, the 2009 captures the very best qualities of the year. Dark cherries, plums, menthol and licorice all jump from the glass in this generous, inviting Tuscan Merlot. There is a lot to love about the 2009, starting with its impeccable balance. The purity of the fruit alone is striking. I am not sure how the 2009 is going to age, but it is drop-dead gorgeous today." (8/2013)94 points James Suckling: "Wow. This wine shows an impressive depth of blackberries and blueberries with hints of ...Read More »
92 points James Suckling: "A refined, complex red with blackberry, blueberry and light chocolate character. Medium body, fine tannins and a fresh finish. Lots of black licorice. Delicious now but better in 2015. Excellent value. 50% Sangiovese and the rest Merlot, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon." (10/2014)91 points Antonio Galloni: "Sweet tobacco, bright red fruit, underbrush and cedar are some of the many notes that come together in the 2013 Rosso di Notri. Precise, delineated and beautifully layered in the glass, the 2013 is striking in its purity and juiciness. The late harvest produced a gorgeous wine loade ...Read More »
This batch of the Blason Brut sparkling wine is made from 100% Ribolla Gialla grapes and is produced in a "long Charmat" method, meaning that it spend six months in tanks. Blason is from Isonzo in Italy's north easternmost region, called Friuli, which borders Slovenia.
91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2007 Fastaia is a rich, powerful wine loaded with the essence of mocha, spices, grilled herbs and dark fruit. The sumptuousness of the fruit carries through to the long, refined finish where a burst of blackberries, spices and new leather add the final layers of complexity. Readers who want to explore Ceuso's wines without spending a fortune should start here. This is a fabulous wine for the money. The 2007 Fastaia is 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot 10% Petit Verdot fermented in steel and subsequently aged in cement for 18 months." (6/2010)

40% Refosco, 40% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon.
Known for small berries and "spontaneous abortion" of the flower, Picolit fashions one of the rarest Italian passito wines. Golden hued with sumptuous honey, tropical and citrus notes, this complex white successsfully rivals Vin Santo for its ability to stand up to hearty cheeses or in a glass all by itself.
91 points James Suckling: "A red with dried fruits, spice and hints of walnuts. Full body, soft and round with ripe berry, plum and coffee bean. Some stem and earth. Velvety tannins. Savory finish. A wine with robust character. Made of sangiovese and merlot. Drink now." (5/2015) K&L Notes: The 2010 vintage was outstanding for Marche reds. The core of Sangiovese gives this wine great length and the Merlot gives a supple, up-front richness. The nose shows a lot of complex plum and spicebox and then segues into a bit of leather. On the palate the wine’s richness is immediately evident, and as it ... Read More »
93 points James Suckling: "A wine with blueberry and chocolate character. Medium body with hints of orange peel and cocoa. Lot of dried strawberries too. A small Brunello production with soul. Top cuvée. Drink or hold." (2/2014)90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good full red. Sexy aromas of ripe raspberry, sweet spices, tobacco and quinine, plus mineral and truffle nuances. Fresh and vibrant on the palate, with a strong spine of acids and tannins nicely supporting the wine's underlying rich, ripe red-fruit sweetness. Finishes with excellent length and balance." (7/2014)
91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Franci lays on good foundations despite the overall austerity of the 2008 vintage. True to the Riserva moniker, there’s an extra dose of intensity here, a riper style, bright acidity at the back and an added layer of firmness or astringency to the tannins. Even the alcohol feels slightly warmer in the 2008 Riserva compaired to the two 2009 Brunellos although it is not (14% compared to 14.5% for the two 2009 wines). In summary, this wine does exactly with Brnello Riserva should do: It brings you a little bit more of ...Read More »
A blend of Grechetto and Voignier, this wine ages 'sur lies' in 10-hectoliter oak and chestnut barrels. The color is a clear, golden-yellow, the result of sitting on the lees. The aromas are surprisingly complex, mineral, intense yet elegant, with a pleasing fruit component that is not too ripe. There is white peach, medlar and perhaps some fresh almond, along with flint and gentian flower. The flavor is balanced, soft, piquant and perfectly upheld by a brackish, Mediterranean acidity.
Wine Spectator: "Full, soft and fruity, with lots of wild raspberry and blackberry aromas and flavors and a soft texture." (6/2007) K&L Notes: The Teroldego wine is an indigenous varietal of Trentino which finds its ideal environment in the Piana Rotaliana. Teroldego seems to derive from "Tiroler Gold," the name that indicated this wine at the Court of Vienna under the Austro-Hungarian empire. From this name came the Tiroldico and finally Teroldego. Among the Trentino wines it is certainly the most famous and rightfully called the royal wine of Trentino.

Here's a delicious Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot blend from cntral Italy's Lazio. It's self-described by the winery as "a red wine with an intense ruby color and bold and persistent aromas that recall black fruits like blackberry and blueberry, accompanied by scents of spice and an elegant vanilla note, along with an austere one from bottle aging. The mouthfeel is balanced, persistent and quite elegant."
93 points Antonio Galloni: "The 2011 Chianti Classico Riserva Le Baroncole is a great example of the year. Dark red and black fruit, smoke, tobacco and licorice wrap around the palate in a racy, voluptuous Chianti loaded with pure class and pedigree. Hints of game, tobacco and cedar add nuance on the finish. (AG)" (9/2014)92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good bright medium red. Pungent, wild aromas of redcurrant, sweet spices, underbrush and flint. Silky and fine-grained, with heady minerality and floral character energizing the redcurrant and dark red cherry flavors. Finishes with suave tannins, noteworthy intensi ...Read More »
95 points Antonio Galloni: "Another gorgeous wine, the 2011 La Ricolma wraps around the palate with fabulous depth and richness. Dark red and black-toned fruit, cloves, menthol, spices and licorice meld together in a supple, radiant wine endowed with notable depth and nuance. Lavender, jasmine and a host of floral notes add gorgeous perfume on the finish. Of all the San Giusto wines, Ricolma seems to get the least attention, but it can be superb, as it is again in 2011." (9/2014)94 points Wine Spectator: "A cool reserve lends a fresh feel to the pure cherry and blackberry flavors in this dense red. Taut, focu ...Read More »
94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The estate's 2004 Barolo Big 'd Big is an expansive wine loaded with primary fruit. Although it doesn't show the complexity of the Santo Stefano it does offer tons of fruit in a big, powerful style. Here too the oak is very well integrated. The wine shows remarkable balance and poise with awesome textural richness and power. Notes of smoke, tobacco, earthiness and licorice emerge with air, but this remains a distinctly fruit-driven style of Barolo typical of the Mosconi vineyard. (AG)" (10/2008)92 points Wine Spectator: "Very floral, with hints of strawberry. Delicate and aromatic ...Read More »
