95 points Wine Enthusiast: "Leather, cured meat, scorched earth, ripe berry and balsamic aromas lead the nose. The smooth, structured palate delivers layers of fleshy black cherry, white pepper and grilled herb alongside velvety tannins. A licorice note wraps around the lingering finish. Drink 2018–2026. (KO)" (10/2016) 95 points Wine Spectator: "*Collectibles* This is expressive, with alluring cherry, strawberry, floral and mineral flavors building to a long, expansive finish. The elegant profile belies the serious structure underneath, which should allow this red to develop over the next 15 to 20 years. Offe ...Read More »

2011 Giacomo Fenocchio "Bussia" Barolo

92 points James Suckling: "Walnut, berry and milk chocolate character on the nose and palate. Full and chewy with round and soft tannins and a savory finish. Better in 2017." (4/2015) 92 points Wine Spectator: "Aromatic, offering rose, peony, strawberry and cherry notes, picking up tobacco and licorice accents on the palate. Elegant and long, with licorice and spice details trailing on the finish. Best from 2018 through 2032." (8/2015)

2011 Rivella Barbaresco "Montestefano"

Part of this fruit was fermented in French oak barrels that confer added depth, volume and tannin, none of which Montestefano lacks, in my view. As such, the 2011 could use a few years in bottle to fully come together. It is deeply impressive today, though. That much is obvious. Hints of sage, smoke, lavender and dried flowers add nua ...Read More »

2011 Casanova di Neri "White Label" Brunello di Montalcino

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Giacomo Neri has produced a very approachable wine in this warm vintage. The 2011 Brunello di Montalcino is plump and juicy with loads of dark fruit and mild spice at the back. It doesn't have the depth or complexity of the gorgeous 2010 vintage, but the wine does a very good job presenting the main traits you look for in Brunello. The fruit is lively and the acidity gives the wine a sense of buoyancy and brightness. The tannins are very well integrated. It doesn't reach Brunello greatness, but it is a good Brunello. (ML)" (3/2016) 92 points Vinous: "Casanova di Neri's 2011 ...Read More »
