2009 Prunotto Barolo Bussia (Pre-Arrival, Elsewhere $80)

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "From one of the most celebrated vineyards in Monforte d'Alba, the 2009 Barolo Bussia shows a tad more color and concentration upon first inspection. As expected, it also follows through with bigger aromas of dried cherry, spice and dark licorice, but nothing is out of place. It never abandons its promise of understated elegance. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2028." (6/2013) 94 points James Suckling: "This smells like top Burgundy with light earth, flowers and berries. Full body, with ultra-fine tannins and a beautiful palate of subtle yet intense fruits and a long, long finish. Wonderf ...Read More »

2009 Flavio Roddolo Nebbiolo d'Alba

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Showing power and determination, the 2009 Nebbiolo d'Alba sees a two-week maceration period and aging in traditional oak casks. The wine is full and generous with tones of dark fruit, spice, balsam herb, licorice and dried mint. The best Nebbiolo fruit goes toward Roddolo's Barolo, but the 2009 vintage saw a good crop for both the production of the higher- and lower-tier wines. (ML)" (6/2015)

2009 Corte Rugolin "Crosara de le Strìe" Amarone Classico

You should know that the folks behind this newish label are none other than the children of the famous Amarone producer Bruno Coati. This one is impeccably balanced and rich, with layers of coffee, toffee, nuts, berries and earth. A rising star of the region, and already a frequent Gambero Rosso favorite, try this autumnal red with poultry and long-cooked meats, or a rich traditional lasagne.

2009 Silvano Bolmida Barolo "Bussia" Riserva

92 points Wine Spectator: "Aeration coaxes out the enticing cherry, raspberry and floral aromas and flavors of in this elegant red, which is balanced, vibrant and firm, with a long finish of mineral and spice. Best from 2016 through 2029. (BS)" (12/2013) 91 points Wine Enthusiast: "This offers aromas of red rose, wild berry, dark cooking spice and a whiff of sun baked earth. The ripe palate offers black cherry marinated in spirits, licorice, game and a hint of chocolate alongside velvety tannins. The warmth of alcohol closes the finish. Drink 2018-2029."

Antonio Galloni writes: "Trabucchi makes intense, fruit-forward wines from biologically-certified vineyards in Illasi, one of the valleys that emerges on the eastern side of the Valpolicella zone."

2009 Vie Cave Malbec Maremma Toscana

Though it's relatively unusual to find Italian Malbecs, the grape, in fact, is very well suited to the climate and soils of Maremma, the region best known for producing famed Super Tuscans such as Sassicaia and Ornellaia. Its tufo soils are so revered that they inspired the name Vie Cave, which is a nod to the early Etruscan roads carved into this volcanic rock. The 2009 vintage started wet and mild, but by harvest time, the grapes were beautifully ripe and balanced. The resulting Malbec is luxurious, but maintains a nice core acidity to make it food fri...

2009 Proprieta Sperino Lessona

94 points Vinous: "Sperino's 2009 Lessona is drop-dead gorgeous. Sweet red berries, tobacco, menthol and licorice all flesh out in a juicy, soft Nebbiolo with no hard edges and plenty of supple, deeply expressive fruit. This is an unusually resonant, generous young Lessona built on balance and symmetry. I expect the 2009 will be even better in another few years, but it is already a drop-dead gorgeous beauty. (AG)" (3/2014) 92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Aromas of dark berry, menthol, crushed violet, mint and pipe tobacco open this elegant expression of Nebbiolo. The palate offers black cherry, ripe raspbe ...Read More »

2009 Casanova di Neri "Tenuta Nuova" Brunello di Montalcino

93 points James Suckling: "A wine with ripe blueberry and cherry character, and a smoky undertone. Mineral, too. Full body with chewy tannins and a fresh finish. Excellent for the vintage. Better in 2015." (2/2014) 93 points Vinous: "Vivid red. Multidimensional nose offers captivating aromas of raspberry, sour red cherry, redcurrant, brown sugar, cinnamon and minerals, lifted by a strong note of fresh citrus fruit. Vibrant flavors of red and black fruits, pink peppercorn and sweet spices are wonderfully pure and juicy. This sneakily concentrated yet refined wine shows a rare blend of power and delicac ...Read More »

2009 Luigi Baudana "Baudana" Barolo

94 points Vinous: "Plum, iron, graphite, smoke, tar and licorice notes flesh out in the 2009 Barolo Baudana. A wine of volume, depth and texture, the 2009 is quite dark and brooding. At the same time, though, the vintage has softened some of the contours, making the Baudana a wine that can be enjoyed relatively early. Layers of dark fruit and firm Serralunga tannins go at it pound for pound in this intense, masculine Barolo. Drinking window: 2016 - 2029." (10/2013) K&L Notes: Ownership changed in the year previous to this vintage. Critic Antonio Galloni elaborates: "The Vajra family h... Read More »

2009 Dal Forno Romano Valpolicella Classico Superiore Back In Stock!
2009 Dal Forno Romano Valpolicella Classico Superiore

92 points Vinous: "Black cherries, plums, graphite, tapenade, melted road tar and game hits the palate as Romano Dal Forno's 2009 Valpolicella Superiore shows off its personality. The 2009 brings together the signature richness of a wine made from 100% dried fruit with distinctly wild, almost Syrah-like overtones. Inky and intense, with considerable tannic backbone, the 2009 is really more of a junior Amarone than a Valpolicella. Readers will want to give this super-expressive wine another few years in the cellar, but there is a lot to like, even today. (AG)" (7/2015) 91 points Wine Spectator: "A dens ...Read More »

2009 Il Marroneto "Madonna delle Grazie" Brunello di Montalcino (Previously $90)

94 points Wine & Spirits: "*Cellar Selection* This gorgeous Brunello proves that top producers can make outstanding wines even in challenging vintages like 2009. It opens with an elegant bouquet of violet, red berry, spice and a whiff of new leather. The delicious palate delivers fleshy black cherry layered with mint, licorice, balsamic herbs and cinnamon-spice. It's impeccably balanced with firm tannins and fresh acidity that give it an age-worthy structure. Drink 2016–2024."

2009 Arnaldo Caprai "Collepiano" Sagrantino di Montefalco

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Montefalco Sagrantino Collepiano offers a modern interpretation of a traditional wine once made by monks. The extra oak intensity leads to soft tones of chocolate, dark cherry and spice. This wine ages in barrique for 22 months. Each producer finds his or her own way to tame the brutal tannins of Sagrantino. One way Marco does this is with oak. (ML)" (8/2013) 92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Polished and spicy, this structured wine features aromas of leather, truffle, blackberry and savory herb. The juicy palate delivers layers of fleshy black plum, black cherry, freshly ground p ...Read More »

2009 Cerbaiona Brunello di Montalcino

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Brunello di Montalcino shows the signature sophistication this iconic estate is celebrated for. Sadly, Diego and Nora Molinari have announced their intention to sell Cerbaiona and we may soon be looking at new ownership. A dark appearance segues to brooding aromas of licorice, tar, cherry and spice that wrap around the long, polished finish. (ML)" (2/2014)

2009 Casanova di Neri "Pietradonice" Toscana

95 points James Suckling: "This pure Cabernet Sauvignon shows fabulous depth and richness. Currants, berries, sweet tobacco, and lead pencil aromas and flavors, it's long and invigorating to taste. The tannins are wonderfully integrated." (12/2012) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Pietradonice (Cabernet Sauvignon) comes across as sumptuous and super-intense. Dark black cherries, blackberry jam, graphite and grilled herbs all take shape in the glass as this intense, full-bodied Cabernet shows what is possible with the grape in Montalcino. The style is very much on the opulent side, but it works. As outstand ...Read More »

2009 Tommasi Amarone della Valpolicella Classico

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "From a warmer vintage, the 2009 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico is showing beautifully right now. Like all of Tommasi’s top wines, the signature style shows loads of dark fruit intensity and a brooding, textured mouthfeel. It also boasts the overt, chewy sweetness that Amarone is known for. Prune, plum cake and baking spice appear on the finish. Drink 2014-2021. (ML)" (10/2013)
