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.

2006 Domenico Clerico "Ciabot Mentin Ginestra" Barolo

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2006 Barolo Ciabot Mentin Ginestra bursts onto the palate with gorgeous, well-delineated aromas and flavors. This is an especially chiseled, finely sculpted, yet exotic Barolo endowed with extraordinary complexity and mouth-filling intensity in its ripe dark plums, mint, violets, sweet spices, soy, tar and minerals. In 2006, the Ciabot combines elegance and power to a degree that is exceedingly rare. It is another superb and truly special Barolo from Domenico Clerico. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2031.

Full- bodied and luscious, this Brunello fills your mouth, with polished velvety tannins and gorgeous fruit. So wonderful and gorgeous. Irresistible. Better than 2006. Best after 2016."

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 »

2001 Casanova di Neri "Tenuta Nuova" Brunello di Montalcino

97 points James Suckling: "There is so much ripe fruit here with a decadent richness that is just crazy. Verges on raisins but it goes instead to pure fruit. Very full and velvety with a long finish. 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 Valdicava Brunello di Montalcino (Pre-Arrival)

Loads going on in this one. Give it three to five years. Or more." (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. A blast o ...Read More »

2004 Valdicava "Madonna del Piano" Brunello di Montalcino Riserva

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2004 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Madonna del Piano continues to develop very positively. This huge, concentrated Madonna del Piano dazzles for the richness of its fruit and the delineation of its aromas. The clean, vibrant finish suggests many years of cellaring potential. The Valdicava Brunellos are often misunderstood when young because they possess so much richness, but with time in bottle the wines turn more delicate and complete. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2029.

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.

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 »

(10/09) 93 points Wine Advocate " Graetz’s 2007 Testamatta is soft and seamless as it flows onto the palate, revealing a silky, luxurious expression of fruit.

Very tannic and powerful, yet the tannins are polished and pretty. Layers of everything here. Give this another three to four years before opening." (11/2013) 98 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Top 100 Cellar Selections of 2013* Here’s an unforgettable wine that absolutely makes the case for 2007 being one of the best vintages of late in Montalcino.

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 »

2003 Feudi di San Gregorio "Serpico" Irpinia

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2003 is a fascinating Serpico. The wine boasts impressive concentration in its dark, rich fruit. This is an incredibly primary Serpico, with little in the way of tertiary development. Ideally, it is best left alone for another few years, but readers fortunate enough to own this are in for a thrilling ride once the wine opens up a bit. Today it remains tightly coiled but full of potential. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2023.

2005 Felsina Vin Santo del Chianti Classico (375ml)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Made with Trebbiano, Malvasia and Sangiovese, the 2005 Vin Santo del Chianti Classico opens to a brilliant amber color and thick viscosity that hugs to the rim of the glass. Oak-driven tones of vanilla and caramel are immediately apparent, but quickly followed by candied fruit, butterscotch and orange peel. Clusters undergo a natural drying process on mats until February of the following year. The must is transferred to sealed oak casks containing the “mother,” or gelatinous remains from previous vintages. Fèlsina and consulting winemaker Franco Bernab ...Read More »

1996 Dal Forno Romano Valpolicella Superiore

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1996 Valpolicella is amazing. Readers will have to redefine their definition of Valpolicella to understand this blockbuster. The color is a dense purple. 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 »

In the mouth, the wine tastes dense, concentrated and opulent. This is a real crowd pleaser." (4/2011) 93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good full medium red. Aromas of plum, redcurrant, coffee, mocha and oak. Broad, silky, sweet and seamless, but today a strong spine of acidity gives it a rather backward impression.

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 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.
