2006 Mastroberardino "Radici" Taurasi Riserva

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2006 Taurasi Radici hits the palate with masses of blueberries, black berries, flowers and spices. The 2006 is a big, explosive wine in need of considerable cellaring. That said, it is remarkably accessible for a young Taurasi from this historic property. Layers of fruit continue to build towards the exotic, concentrated finish. This is a marvelous wine in the making. The 2006 spent two years in a combination of casks and smaller French oak barrels. (AG)" (5/2011) 95 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Editors' Choice* This is a gorgeous, compelling wine of power and finesse. It has a capt ...Read More »

2012 Murgo Brut Rosé Spumante Sicily

92 points Vinous: "Bright copper-tinged pink. Knockout aromas and flavors of red berries, nectarine, minerals, herbs and orange peel. Creamy but with juicy verve and lovely floral lift extending the stone and citrus fruit flavors on the long back end. Outstanding; this is the best Rosato bubbly from Murgo I have memory of. (ID)" (4/2016) 90 points Wine & Spirits: "Nerello Mascalese grapes harvested for this wine underwent twenty-four hours of skin contact, imparting a pale salmon color and delicate flavors of red berries underlined by a fine minerality.

2012 Daniel Ricci "Terre del Timorasso" Colli Tortonesi Timorasso

This is white wine for a red wine drinker. There is so much concentration and depth of flavor, intensity, complexity, and downright deliciousness here, you'll have a hard time ever sipping on a light quaffing white wine ever again. Made from 100% Timorasso, a rare Piedmontese varietal grown in the Tortonesi hills near the Lombardy border, this wine's richness comes from extended skin and lees aging. Though not quite an orange wine, this can stand up to more substantial fare than your typical white.

2004 Fanti Brunello di Montalcino

94 points Wine Spectator: "Shows blackberries and dried flowers on the nose. Full-bodied, with lots of ripe berry and cream character. Rich and flavorful. Long and beautiful. It's layered and velvety. Seductive. (JS, Web-2009)" 92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Thick, dark and beautifully concentrated, this is a dense, succulent wine with a soft, velvety feel that will appeal to those who like this style. The aromas are layered and penetrating and span the gamut of black fruit to smoky spice." (6/2009) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Fanti's 2004 Brunello di Montalcino is an inky, opulent wine bursting with dark blueberries, blackberries, violets an ...Read More »

2012 Garlider Sylvaner Alto Adige-Südtirol

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Alto Adige Valle Isarco Sylvaner (with a glass cork) delivers musky aromas of lavender soap, white flower and jasmine potpourri. There’s a distant note of petroleum at the back. In line with the grape’s natural characteristics, the mouthfeel is fatty, soft and thick. (ML)" (9/2014) K&L Notes: Christian Kerschbaumer is a young winemaker and proprietor Weingut Garlider in Alto Adige's Eisack Valley. English wine writer and critic Stuart Pigott writes: "His white wines are of a very special class. The Sylvaner has a creaminess, saltiness and freshness, which gi... Read More »

2006 Valdicava Brunello di Montalcino

97 points James Suckling: "Love the nose on this with blackberries, sweet tobacco, blueberries. Full body, with soft and silky tannins and a light jammy finish. Lots of dark fruits. Long finish. Loads going on in this one." (1/2011) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino flows with gorgeous layers of dark red fruit. This is one of the more muscular, virile wines of the vintage. Slow to reveal its character, the Valdicava Brunello will require significant patience, but I have seen the wine blossom beautifully, even in the smallest of vintages.

1996 Ceretto "Bricco Rocche" Barolo

92-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This wine exhibits a saturated ruby color with purple nuances. Additionally, it is rich, with lots of extract, tannin, and body. Ceretto's opaque ruby/purple-colored 1996 Barolo Bricco Rocche is sensational stuff. It combines explosive levels of fruit, glycerin, and extract with an uncanny sense of elegance and finesse. There are copious quantities of black cherry fruit, intermixed with raspberries, cedar, spicy oak, licorice, and tar. This terrific, complex, multidimensional Barolo should be at its finest between 2003-2018. (RP)" (8/1999) 95 points Wine Spectator: "Complex aromas ...Read More »

Best after 2010. (JS)" (4/2006) 93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Bold brushstrokes of cocoa fudge, lavish vanilla, espresso bean, plum, leather and Indian spice create an expressive and flavorful whole. Silky tannins are framed by ripe red fruit and smoky roasted notes. A very good showing from one of Brunello’s most recognized names." (4/2006) Jancis Robinson: "Mid to deep crimson.

2004 Pieve Santa Restituta (Gaja) "Rennina" Brunello di Montalcino

95 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good deep red. Powerful yet elegant nose shows more berries and minerals and less oak than the Sugarille; this is downright Musigny-like. Then silky, suave and graceful on the palate, with compelling inner-mouth floral perfume and a wonderfully pliant texture. If anything, this wine is even more intense on the suavely tannic, extremely long finish than in the middle, as its underlying minerality gives it outstanding grip and finesse. This is made from a blend of sites while Sugarille is from a single vineyard, but it was this wine that spun my head aroun ...Read More »

2001 Giacomo Borgogno Barolo Riserva

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2001 Barolo Riserva is a huge wine. Smoke, camphor, tar, licorice and black fruit are some of the many nuances that emerge from this complex, highly idiosyncratic wine. The 2001 Riserva won’t win any awards for elegance, but it nevertheless impresses for its exuberant fruit and sheer character. There is a certain beauty to the wine’s rusticity and earnestness that is striking. Layers of fruit build to the bruising, intense finish. Anticipated maturity: 2021-2041.

I love this." (12/2010) 97 points Wine Spectator: "*Wine of the Year in 2006, Collectibles* Dark in color with intense blackberry, chocolate, and lightly toasted oak. Full-bodied and ultravelvety, with tannins that caress your palate. Vanilla, chocolate and berry. Goes on for minutes. Mind-blowing."

2006 Terre de' Trinci "Ugolino" Sagrantino di Montefalco

Jancis Robinson: "Considered a riserva from a 45-year-old vineyard with ridiculously low yields of 30 hl. Vineyards in Montefalco and Bevagna, and the cantina is in Foligno. Beautiful mid ruby with the beginning of orange tinges. Savoury more than fruity at the moment and a little locked up on the nose. Yet it has a supple palate and not heavy at all. Rich tannins on the finish. Aged for at least 18 months in new barrique, which is pretty amazing, because you hardly notice it on the nose. It may have added more tannins, whereas with less new oak you would have had a reall ...Read More »

Remarkably, there is little evidence of new oak, even though the wine spent 36 months in barrel before being bottled without filtration. It tips the scales at a whopping 14.5% alcohol, high for Valpolicella. It should drink well for 10-15 years. (RP)" (8/2000) 90 points Wine Spectator: "Amazing Valpo. Aristocratic.

The bouquet offers glorious levels of blackberry and cherry fruit intertwined with vanilla, minerals, lead pencil shavings, and spice. The wine is full-bodied and voluptuously-textured, with sweet tannin and a seamless finish. It is an enormous yet incredibly symmetrical Valpolicella to drink over the next 2-5 years; it will last for 15-18 years.

2003 Tenuta di Trinoro Toscana Rosso

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2003 Tenuta di Trinoro is the wine that surprised me most. Given the decadently overripe style that Andrea Franchetti pursued during these years, and the scorching heat of this infamous vintage, I frankly expected a massive, amorphous fruit bomb. Instead, this wine shows a much higher level of definition and focus than I would have ever imagined. This proves the old adage that the best winemakers should be judged in the worst vintages. Specifically, this blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot reveals a refined mineral pe ...Read More »

1999 Aldo Conterno "Cicala" Barolo

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "We found some inconsistency in the lineup from Aldo Conterno, but this wine flat-out rocks. The rich, intense aromas layer vanilla, coffee and buttercream over a framework of tart cherries, which explode in the mouth into a panopoly of red fruits. The tannins are plentiful—creating a rich texture—yet supple, showing great ripeness on the finish." (4/2004) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Medium ruby. Owing to its poor soils, Cicala always gives the firmest wines, and this 1999 is no exception.

2011 Damijan Ribolla Gialla Friuli

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Damijan Podversic is a leader in the orange wine movement and his Ribolla Gialla is at the head of the crowd. The 2011 Ribolla Gialla imparts oxidative notes of dusty mineral, toasted nut, canned peach and candied apricot. The wine sports a deep copper color with bright amber and golden highlights. This Ribolla Gialla drinks like a red wine thanks to its power, heft and structure. It has the criteria for long aging and probably won't change much in the short term. Aging on the lees give stability and protection. The finish is tangy and austere, but there ...Read More »

Of the wines tasted in this vertical, the 2004 is most indicative of that trademark Andrea Franchetti style that sees Baroque-style opulence in terms of the wine's ripeness, curvaceousness and softness.
