2014 Tenuta San Guido "Guidalberto" Toscana (Elsewhere $45) Top Pick!
2014 Tenuta San Guido "Guidalberto" Toscana (Elsewhere $45)

94 points Decanter: "The second wine of Tuscan legend, Sassicaia. If you like Bordeaux, you will love this – a riper, modern take on the French style. The blend of 60% Cabernet and 40% Merlot aged in French and American oaks offers up ripe, almost sweet, fruits with layers of black cherry, blackcurrant, liquorice and spice. A luxurious mouthfeel with cocoa-dusted tannins make this a great food wine and is truly incredible value for the quality. Another winner from Tenuta San Guido." (12/2016) 92 points Wine & Spirits: "Guidalberto is lively and forward in the 2014 vintage, with scents of fresh rose peta ...Read More »

2011 Baricci Brunello di Montalcino

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Editors' Choice* Aromas suggesting underbrush, scorched earth, mature black-skinned fruit and a whiff of dried mint jump out of the glass. The big, chewy palate doles out mature Marasca cherry, graphite, chopped herb and dark cooking spice alongside firm, refined tannins. It’s absolutely delicious. (KO)" (5/2016) 92 points James Suckling: "This shows lots of mushroom, dried fruit, spice and walnut aromas and flavors. Full-bodied but agile and refined. Pure and balanced. Drink or hold."

2013 Cantine di Ora "Amicone" Rosso Veneto (Elsewhere $18)

Amicone is made from predominantly Corvina grapes (same grapes that go into Amarone) but are dried for a shorter period and on the vine not on mats like Amarone. The wine is fermented in stainless steel and then aged in French oak tonneaux for 8 months. The result is an easy drinking full-bodied red that has lots of rich soft, smooth texture.

2015 Lunae Colli di Luni Vermentino

This Tuscan Vermentino comes from the Colli di Luni which is right at the Ligurian border. The wine was fermented on the skins for 48 hours and has a simply stunning character. Loads of nascent fruit are wrapped around a core of mineral salts, spice and producing a palate feel that is absolutrely scintillating. A long finish that is so expressive, I really think this wine is fantastic.

2011 Felsina "Fontalloro" Toscana

95 points James Suckling: "Aromas of dark chocolate, berries, toasted nuts and vanilla bean follow through to a full body, firm tannins and a juicy finish. Lots of intense, beautiful fruit. 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. It ages in new and once-used barrique for up to 22 months. Aromas flow with authority, spanning a large swath of fruit and oak-related attributes. The best part, however, is the aromatic layering: Slices of br ...Read More »

(2/2016) 92 points Vinous: "The 2011 Brunello di Montalcino is quite pretty and expressive. Lifted, perfumed aromatics meld into bright red cherry and plum fruit. This is one of the more delicate wines of the vintage, and also one of the most expressive. The 2011 offers lovely balance for the vintage in an understated, mid-weight style that can be enjoyed pretty much upon release. Sweet red plum, cherry pit and ...Read More »

2015 Torti Pinot Nero Bianco Oltrepo Pavese (Previously $17)

I met Dino and Patrizia Torti, a dynamic Father-Daughter winemaking team, at their winery in the hills of Oltrepo Pavese about 45 miles south of Milano. Pinot Noir or Pinot Nero in Italian has been used in Lombardia in the making of methode champenoise sparkling wines dating back into the 19th century, but only recently has there been a movement for the production of red wines. That might seem an odd introduction for a white wine but this one is made from red grapes! Pinot Noir vinified white (no skin contact), but wow what flavor! Bold, penetrating Pino... Read More »

96 points James Suckling: "Captivating aromas of dark fruits, cedar and tobacco follow through to a full body, silky and chewy tannins and a flavorful, rich finish. Very intense and pretty. Provocative. A classic Super Tuscan. A blend of Sangiovese and Malvasia Nera. Drink in 2019." (11/2016) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "As always, this celebrated wine shows excellent results. The 2012 I Sodi di S. Niccolò (85% Sangioveto and 15% Malvasia Nera) is a young wine that needs time to flesh out. It shows bright berry flavors and fresh acidity that will benefit from more time to relax and integrate.

2013 Prunotto Barbaresco (Previously $37)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Showing a hearty dose of all-Nebbiolo personality, the 2013 Barbaresco opens to well-balanced notes of dried berry, licorice, tar and blue flower. The ensemble is delicate and fresh. What makes this wine so appealing is the fact it offers such a clear and pristine view of the grape that is especially well-executed in this vintage. The finish is elegant and silky." (9/2016)

2009 Vie Cave Malbec Maremma Toscana (Previously $27)

Though it's relatively unusual to find Italian Malbecs, the grape, in fact, is very well suited to the climate and soils of Maremma, the region best known for producing famed Super Tuscans such as Sassicaia and Ornellaia. Its tufo soils are so revered that they inspired the name Vie Cave, which is a nod to the early Etruscan roads carved into this volcanic rock. The 2009 vintage started wet and mild, but by harvest time, the grapes were beautifully ripe and balanced. The resulting Malbec is luxurious, but maintains a nice core acidity to make it food fri...

2012 Torti Barbera Oltrepo Pavese (Previously $18)

The Barbera grapes for this wine were grown in vineyards dating back to the early 19th century. It's a vibrant ruby red in the glass with a dry, full body. Thanks to the long growing season in this northern part of Italy, the wine develops gorgeous acid that makes it a perfect accompaniment to roasted and braised meats.

The firmly structured palate offers juicy raspberry, black cherry and licorice alongside a backbone of assertive but noble tannins. Drink 2020 - 2032" (2/2017) Jancis Robinson: "Light bricky ruby. Refined red fruits and finely fragrant. Bone dry and super-fine tannins. Firm and spicy on the finish but still extremely elegant, the tannins a little chalky now. Mouth-wateringly fresh finish.

2012 Cascina Val del Prete "Carolina" Barbera d'Alba (Previously $45)

Cascina Val del Prete (valley of the priest) takes its name from the exiled Bishop of Asti who lived there in 1850. In 1977 Bartolomeo Roagna and his wife Carolina bought the farm "Val del Prete" where they had worked as sharecroppers. The first thing they did was replace some of the grain and fruit plantings with vines. The grapes are grown on south-facing slopes in a splendid natural amphitheater. Over the years they have increased the area under vine. Their sons, Mario and Luigi, have entered the family business to take care of the vineyards. Cascina ... Read More »

Full body, and very compacted. Toned and muscular tannins. Racy finish with bright acidity. Fascinating to taste (drink) now but this will be even better in 2019 and onwards."

2013 Cantina Valle Isarco "Sabiona" Kerner (Previously $45)

In case you are like most folks out there, and you have no idea what Kerner is, here's a little background: Kerner is a relatively new grape (developed in the 1960s) and is a cross between Riesling and the local red grape Schiava. Though something of a mongrel in terms of ancestry, in the right hands, such as those of the very capable people at Cantina Valle Isarco, it produces a full-bodied, un-oaked wine full of vibrant fruits, ethereal floral highlights and aging potential. A strong, spicy wine to enjoy with charcuterie and sausages or sashimi!

2015 La Caudrina Moscato d'Asti (End of Vintage)

This wine is naturally "frizzante," or half-sparkling, because of the carbon dioxide created during the autoclave fermentation. You know this delightfully sweet, low-alcohol Moscato d'Asti has to be good--it was brought in by one of our favorite Italian importers, Oliver McCrum. La Caudrina owner Romano Dogliotto was one of the first of the region's small producers to start bottling his own wine. With just 5.5% alcohol by volume, this fresh Moscato tastes like biting into a ripe peach with a refreshing burst of bubbles in the mouth. A fantastic dessert w... Read More »

But will be even better in 2018."

In this vintage, the Perazzi has a bit more energy and acidity than is the norm, which perks up the flavors and balances some of the natural richness of this site.
