2009 La Velona Brunello di Montalcino Top Pick!
2009 La Velona Brunello di Montalcino

92 points Wine Spectator: "Cherry, plum, licorice and spice flavors play off the lush texture in this opulent red. The tannins offer support, but are well-integrated, leading to a long, balanced finish. (Web-2015) (BS)" 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "From Podere Pietranera, the 2009 Brunello di Montalcino is a soft and perfumed expression that excels in consistency as it glides so smoothly over the senses. It shows dried cherry and cassis with good balance, finesse and class. The palate shows more firmness and grit with a pinch of sharp Sangiovese acidity on the close.

2009 La Fortuna Brunello di Montalcino Top Pick!
2009 La Fortuna Brunello di Montalcino

Vinous: "La Fortuna's 2009 Brunello di Montalcino is already quite forward. Dried cherries, crushed flowers, mint, tobacco and licorice meld together in a forward, mature Brunello ... (AG)" (5/2014) Wine Enthusiast: "Fragrances of mature black fruit, violet, espresso and baking spices take the lead. The palate delivers ripe red berries, black cherry, vanilla and mocha backed up by assertive but somewhat drying tannins." (5/2014) K&L Notes: La Fortuna celebrated their 100th anniversary in 2007, and Angelo Zannoni is the fifth generation of winemakers at the estate. He has been working with his fa... Read More »

2009 Vie Cave Malbec Maremma Toscana Top Pick!
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 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 Cantalupo Colline Novaresi Nebbiolo "Agamium"

91 points Vinous: "The 2009 Colline Novaresei Agamium is floral, bright and deeply expressive, with plenty of lift and red stone fruit character. Feminine and gracious throughout, the 2009 offers considerable grace and plenty of near to medium-term appeal. A final burst of Chambolle-like fruit rounds out the finish. (AG)" (7/2015) 90 points Wine Enthusiast: "This polished Nebbiolo opens with aromas of perfumed berry, violet, tilled soil and grilled herb. The bright, elegant palate doles out sour cherry, star anise and cinnamon framed in sleek tannins and bright acidity. A mineral note energizes the fin ...Read More »

2009 Sella Lessona

92 points Vinous: "High-toned flowers, mint, spices, sweet red berries and anise all waft from the glass in the 2009 Lessona. A wine of superb elegance, the 2009 captures all the best qualities of the appellation in its silky, medium-bodied personality and highly expressive aromatics. Drink 2014 - 2021. Sella is one of the top estates in Northern Piedmont. I have always adored these wines since I first visited the estate a decade ago. I was reminded of how beautiful the wines are when I enjoyed a stellar bottle of the flagship 2006 Omaggio a Quintino Sella recently. Sella' ...Read More »

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 raising 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 Pian dell'Orino Brunello di Montalcino (Previously $80)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Brunello di Montalcino opens to gorgeous floral tones that frame a darker core of dark fruit. The wine is extremely elegant, especially in the delicate way it puts forth its ethereal aromas of cola, licorice and grilled herb layer after layer. The palate delivers structure and good freshness. Drink: 2018-2028. Caroline Pobitzer and Jan Erbach run a tight ship at Pian dell’Orino. I had a chance to taste through barrels in their circular winery and it was here that I began to develop my happy expectations concerning the 2012 vintage. I also learne ...Read More »

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 Sergio Barale Bussia" Barolo Riserva

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Barolo Bussia Sergio Barale delivers even richer fruit with obvious aromas of prune, plum and dark berry. Polished tannins, firm and tight, are backed by thick fruit padding and fresh acidity that will help navigate the trappings of cellar aging. One of the oldest estates in the Langhe, Fratelli Barale was founded in 1870, shortly after the Barolo denomination was created with the help of Marchesi Falletti and founding father of modern Italy, Count of Cavour, Camillo Benso. Sergio Barale and his daughters manage the estate today. The various exp ...Read More »

2009 Valdicava "Madonna del Piano" Brunello di Montalcino Riserva

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Madonna del Piano is an expressive and articulate wine that speaks highly of Sangiovese and the Montalcino territory. The wine offers a pristine narrative of both grape and place with crystalline aromas of cherry, blackberry, spice, leather, smoke and Mediterranean herb. The bouquet peels back one delicious layer at a time. The mouthfeel is similarly successful with deep concentration and complexity. It imparts soft layers of dried fruit and velvety tannins. Endnotes of espresso bean and toasted almond add length a ...Read More »

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."

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 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 Campo alla Sughera "Arnione" Bolgheri

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot, this shows a dark, masculine personality, and it offers bitter chocolate, dark cherry, blackberry, rum cake, leather and black licorice notes. Dark fruit on the palate is backed by well-structured tannins, which suggest impressive longevity." (4/2013) 93 points James Suckling: "Raspberries, caramelized nuts, peppercorns and gravel. Firm tannins and a full body. A blend of cabernet, merlot and petit verdot. Drink in 2015."

2009 Giacomo Conterno "Cascina Francia" Barolo
Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 2009 Giacomo Conterno "Cascina Francia" Barolo (96RP, 95JS, 95VN, 94ST, 94WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Because Monfortino was not produced this vintage, the 2009 Barolo Cascina Francia benefits from the extra fruit that would have otherwise gone toward the world's most celebrated Barolo Riserva. I tasted the 2009 Barolo Cascina Francia in barrel two years ago and am delighted by its steady evolution. This is a wine of sophisticated intensity and persuasion. The bouquet peels back to reveal dark fruit, licorice, tar and dried rose. The vintage was warm, resulting in extra plumpness and roundness in terms of mouthfeel. The style is slightly more immediate, but this is a great aging wine nonetheless. (ML)" (05/2015)

2009 Il Marroneto "Madonna delle Grazie" Brunello di Montalcino

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."
