2012 Garlider Sylvaner Alto Adige-Südtirol (Previously $21)

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 »

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.

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 »

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 »

2007 Antinori "Tignanello" Toscana

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2007 Tignanello is ripe with promise for the future. The wine has just started its evolutionary track with aromas of blackcurrant, dried blackberry and cherry. This was a warm but balanced vintage that shows beautiful results today and exceeds my already high expectations. There is a steady thickness and determination to the wine that carries it forward. This was the last vintage made in the Tignanello winery before the structure saw a major overhaul. Given the staying power of this historic wine, I feel that this vintage will hold easily for another ...Read More »

2012 Murgo Brut Rosé Spumante Sicily

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.

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 »

2004 Azelia "San Rocco" Barolo

95 points Vinous: "The 2004 Barolo San Rocco is in a gorgeous place right now. Expressive savory and floral notes open up in a lifted Serralunga Barolo endowed with superb underlying depth and textural richness. Ample, layered and beautifully expressive through to the finish, the 2004 is just as impressive today as it was from barrel. The 2004 spent two years in French oak barrels, 20% new.

This is one of the more muscular, virile wines of the vintage.

1998 Giacomo Conterno "Cascina Francia" Barolo

94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Amber-edged medium red. Multidimensional nose of rose petal, redcurrant, plum, mocha, minerals and spices. Wonderfully silky and spicy, with lovely harmonious acidity giving it near-perfect balance. This struck me as distinctly Burgundian in style. Showing lovely fruit and perfume today, and perhaps deceptively drinkable. Finishes with sweet tannins and ineffable perfume. A real essence of Barolo made according to traditional methods, but with uncommon purity of fruit owing to careful elevage I note that this wine knocked me out two years ago as well.

1995 Dal Forno Romano Valpolicella Superiore

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1995 Valpolicella is an amazing effort, with an opaque dark ruby color, as well as an explosive nose of smoke, earth, jammy berry and blackberry fruit, great richness and purity, full body, and abundant glycerin and intensity. 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.

Super clean and beautiful. Very pure and firm. Needs to age for a long time. Classic wine. Try in 2015." (1/2012) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2007 Brunello di Montalcino is gorgeous.

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.

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.

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.

2004 Rivetti La Spinetta "Starderi" Barbaresco

A dark, brooding wine it reveals an array of dark cherries, spices, tar and smoke in a powerful, sinewy style. With each passing moment, it seemingly turns more and more classic in the glass, with only the super-ripe fruit serving as a reminder that this is a more contemporary wine. The balance and use of oak are both masterful. It is easily the finest wine Giorgio Rivetti has ever made, and is also the first wine in the estate's history that can truly challenge for a spot in the top echelon of the zone ...Read More »

Typical Sangiovese notes of red cherries, tobacco and underbrush dominate the flavor profile of this intensely flavored Tignanello that manages to be ripe and open, while retaining notable balance and freshness, although the tannins dry out a bit on the back end.
