2012 Felsina "Rancia" Chianti Classico Riserva Top Pick!
2012 Felsina "Rancia" Chianti Classico Riserva

94 points Vinous: "94+: A ripe, powerful wine, the 2012 Chianti Classico Riserva Rancia offers a level of finesse that balances some of the more overt intensity of the year. Dark cherry, plum, spice, tobacco, menthol and licorice add shades of nuance as this beautifully delineated Rancia opens up in the glass. Because of its mid-weight structure, I expect the 2012 will give up its charms relatively early by Rancia standards, which means around age 15-20. The 2012 is not an obvious or explosive Rancia, rather is a wine built on compelling overall harmony. (AG)" (9/2015) 94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Full- ...Read More »

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 »

2012 Venturini Amarone della Valpolicella Classico

90 points Vinous: "Medium ruby-red. Musky aromas of red cherry, blackcurrant, earth and tobacco, complicated by hints of a Partagas D4 (Cuban cigar). Bright and juicy, boasting a seamless quality and noteworthy intensity to the sweet but very fresh red and black fruit and coffee flavors. Finishes with ripe tannins, bright and juicy, with a persistent note of cigar tobacco. Made with a blend of 75% Corvina, 20% Rondinella, and 5% Molinara; these are roughly 30 year old vines planted at 250 meters above sea level. I really like the extra freshness and gracefulness brought on ...Read More »

2012 Castello di Romitorio Brunello di Montalcino (Elsewhere $55) Top Pick!
2012 Castello di Romitorio Brunello di Montalcino (Elsewhere $55)

94 points James Suckling: "Here is a full-bodied Brunello with lots of dried fruit, orange peel and hints of spice. Full and velvety. Rich and opulent finish. Yet always in form. Drink in 2020." (12/2016) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Castello Romitorio delivers yet another excellent set of wines from Montalcino. The 2012 Brunello di Montalcino is hearty and dark with enough grit and concentration to pair with classic Tuscan cuisine including steak, game meat or smoked cheese. The mouthfeel is textured and rich. Vibrant fruit and dark tones of black currant, plum, spice and pipe tobacco characterize the bouquet. ...Read More »

2012 Antinori "Tignanello" Toscana New!
2012 Antinori "Tignanello" Toscana

96 points James Suckling: "Aromas of blackcurrants and blueberries with hints of lavender and violets. Full body, chewy and polished tannins and a long, flavorful finish. A beautifully linear and polished red. Give it time to show it all but this is already a beauty. The depth and class to this are indeed impressive. Better in 2017." (8/2015) 95 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* Here’s a structured red with lots of finesse. It opens with alluring aromas of fragrant blue flowers, red berries, baking spices and exotic herbs while the firm, vibrant palate delivers black cherry, crushed raspberry, clove, ...Read More »

2012 Francesco Rinaldi Barolo

Vinous: "The 2012 Barolo tasty, entry-level offering from Rinaldi. The mid-weight personality of the year comes through in this deceptively understated wine that offers good depth but plenty of supporting tannin. I would give the 2012 a year or two in bottle to fully come together, but this is a solid wine with potential. Dried flowers, sweet tobacco and dried cherries meld into the expressive finish. (AG)" (11/2016)

2012 Aldo Conterno "Colonnello" Barolo (Previously $128)

95 points James Suckling: "Warmer aromas of cooked meat, ripe strawberry and fresh herbs. Full body, round and chewy tannins. Big and rich. Needs a year or two to soften. Solid." (3/2016) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Like the Barolo Bussia Cicala, the 2012 Barolo Bussia Colonnello steps out with heavy footing. You feel the weight of the vintage, yet the bouquet shows fewer of those brilliant aromatic accents that are so magnificently delivered in cooler vintages. The aromas are all there - wild berry, balsam herb, cola and licorice - but the intensity is somewhat muted. The wine also shows tightness and astring ...Read More »
