2011 Felsina "Fontalloro" Toscana (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
2011 Felsina "Fontalloro" Toscana (Pre-Arrival)

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 »

2011 Tenuta di Sesta Brunello di Montalcino

92 points James Suckling: "A Brunello with chocolate, walnut and berry aromas and flavors. Full body with round tannins and a long finish. Citrus undertones. Lively and fun. Drink now." (10/2016) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2011 Brunello di Montalcino shows aromas of candied fruit and cassis that are tight and precious. This wine does not share the wide and expansive personality of many of the other Brunellos produced in this warm vintage. Instead, this expression is more introspective and timid. Those delicate berry notes are followed by cola, balsam herb and licorice root. The wine is streamlined and sim ...Read More »

2011 Sella e Mosca Cannonau di Sardegna Riserva

Vinous: "Bright red. Red cherry aromas are complicated by leather and game. Then more game in the mouth and slightly drying tannins, but with enough rich red fruit to keep this dancing on the palate. Finishes medium-long, fruity and chewy. Needs food. (ID)" (10/2016) K&L Notes: Sella & Mosca is a beautiful and historic winegrowing estate in Sardinia.

Very tangy and lively. Drink now or hold." (8/2015) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2011 Philip is a wine with an American spirit.

2011 Pasetti "Tenutarossa" Montepulciano d'Abruzzo

Vinous praised the wines of Pasetti: "Owner Domenico Pasetti, helped by his wife Laura and children Massimo, Davide and Francesca, represents a modern success story in Abruzzo wine, as his judiciously oaked, easy-to-drink wines have been extremely popular, especially in Italy, over the past decade. The cellar is located in Francavilla by the sea, but the grapes come mainly from two different estates high up in the Apennine range in the region’s interior, at Pescosansonesco and Capestrano.

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Sporting a new label design, the 2011 Brunello di Montalcino represents a philosophical divide from previous vintages. In the past, Castiglion del Bosco was focused on soft and immediate Brunellos for near-term consumption. Despite the warm conditions of the 2011 growing season, this wine shows far more elegance, nuance and grace than I expected. This massive property is comprised of various vineyard sites for more blending possibilities. The bouquet is redolent of wild berry, cola and grilled herb.

Corvina 70%, Molinara 5%, Rondinella 25%. After harvest, the grapes were loaded onto special racks where they were allowed to dry at room temperature in a ventilated room for three months.

90 points James Suckling: "A compacted red with dried-cherry, toasted-oak and coffee-bean aroma and flavors. Full body with firm, silky tannins." (2/2016) Wine Enthusiast: "Ripe plum, game, truffle, leather and menthol are some of the aromas you'll find on this earthy wine. The tightly wound palate offers dried black cherry, chopped sage, mint and roasted coffee bean alongside raspy tannins that leave a mouth-drying finish. (KO)" (5/2016)

2011 Fuligni Brunello di Montalcino (Pre-Arrival)

94 points James Suckling: "Plenty of strawberry and cherry aromas and flavors, but it's refined and elegant with brightness and finesse. Polished and wonderfully harmonious. Really gorgeous. One of wines of the vintage. Drink or hold."

2011 Rocca di Montegrossi "Geremia" 1.5L

95 points Vinous: "The 2011 Geremia, the estate's Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot blend, offers tons of energy to balance its dark, inky fruit. Lavender, menthol, melted road tar, sage, crème de cassis and grilled herbs are some of the many signatures. The ripeness and raciness of the year come through in spades, yet there is an element of pulsating intensity in the glass that plays off the more overt elements nicely. This is another superb showing from Rocca di Montegrossi.

2011 San Filippo "Le Lucere" Brunello di Montalcino (Pre-Arrival)

92 points James Suckling: "A firm, silky wine with blueberry, dried mushroom and wet earth. Full-bodied, firm and silky. Long, delicious finish. Some orange peel too. Tight. Needs a year or two to soften." (2/2016) 92 points Vinous: "The 2011 Brunello di Montalcino Le Lucere emerges from the estate's oldest vines. Here the balance of fruit and tannin is much more successful. Sensual and layered in the glass, the Lucere offers good up-front richness to match its creamy, inviting personality. Generous black cherry, plum, smoke, spice and menthol flesh out on a resonant finish laced with attractive aroma ...Read More »
