2008 Casanova di Neri "Tenuta Nuova" Brunello di Montalcino

94 points James Suckling: "This is very floral with blackberries on the nose. It's full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a ripe fruit, caramel and berry aftertaste. Delicious for the vintage. One of the wines of the vintage. Better in 2015." (2/2013) 94 points Wine Spectator: "The sawdust and graphite aromas turn to cherry and raspberry flavors in this vibrant, complex red. A beam of sweet fruit imparts energy and resonance, carrying this to a long, expansive aftertaste. The finish shows potential. Best from 2016 through 2035." (5/2013) 93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Brunello Tenuta Nuova opens with inky dark consistency and immediate aromas ...Read More »

2008 Villa Trasqua "Trasgaia" Toscana (Previously $50)

On a high plateau in the heart of Chianti Classico, the team at Villa Trasqua lives by the "wine is made in the vineyard" ethos. They harvest grapes at their peak, and practice minimal interferance so the aromas of the terroir can shine through. Their "Trasgaia" is a blend of Sangiovese, Cabernet Franc, and Cabernet Sauvignon. It is aromatic and savory, with notes of coffee, cocoa, clove and plum.

2008 Igino Accordini "Le Bessole" Amarone (Elsewhere $65)

Wine Spectator: "Fresh earth and leather accents are layered with a snappy note of cherry and hints of pekoe tea and dried cranberry in this tangy red. Medium-bodied, with an aromatic, herbal finish. Drink now through 2023. 3,700 cases made. (Web Only - 2015)"

2008 Bava Castiglione Falletto Barolo

These grapes come exclusively from vineyards planted in a calcareous-clay soil in the commune of Castiglione Falletto, home to producers like Vietti, Cavalotto and Scavino. Fermented in wooden tanks and then aged in a blend of 50hl barrels and some older barriques for three years. The 2008 vintage was classically styled. This is elegant, aromatic and supple with a bit of tannic grip in the finish.

2008 I Custodi "Aetneus" Etna Rosso

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The top-shelf red is the 2008 Etna Rosso Aetneus that pays homage to this mighty Sicilian volcano with fruit from pre-phylloxera, 150-year-old vines. I tasted this same vintage last year and assigned the wine a score with a question mark because the bouquet appeared muted and muddled. Whatever problem I encountered last year happily did not reappear during this tasting. This is a strong and physical wine with sharp aromas of wild berry, forest floor, wild mushroom and sweet violets. It shows distinct mineral linearity that reinforces the wine's overall e ...Read More »

2008 Francesco Rinaldi "Le Brunate" Barolo

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Barolo Le Brunate is quite a bit richer, deeper and more powerful than the Cannubbio, as one might reasonably expect. Here the fruit boasts tons of pure resonance and stuffing while never losing its essential classicism. Plums, black cherries, leather, tar and licorice meld together, supported by firm yet beautifully integrated tannins. The 2008 Brunate is an explosive wine just waiting to emerge. When it does, it should be striking. Actually, it already is. (AG)" (10/2012)

2008 Mastrojanni "Schiena d'Asino" Brunello di Montalcino

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "One of Montalcino’s most sought-out wines, this 2008 is an outstanding effort. It opens with earthy notes of black berries, tilled soil, underbrush, leather, tobacco and prune. The succulent palate reveals juicy wild cherry and black raspberry energized by notes of white pepper, licorice and thyme. Still young and tannic, it should develop beautifully. Drink 2015–2028." (5/2014) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "From one of Montalcino’s most celebrated single-vineyards, the 2008 Brunello di Montalcino Vigna Schiena d’Asino (“donkey’s back”) comes from a one-hectare hillside crest that runs ...Read More »

2008 Stella di Campalto Brunello di Montalcino

93 points Vinous: "One day, I would like to put Stella di Campalto's 2008 Brunello di Montalcino in a blind tasting with a handful of top-notch Burgundies and see how many people can pick this wine out. Sweet crushed flowers, savory herbs and cherries all waft from the glass. There is an ethereal, lifted, intensely perfumed quality to the 2008 that reminds me of Louis-Michel Liger-Belair's wines. The 2008 isn't a blockbuster, but it is very pretty. (AG)" (9/2013) 92 points Wine & Spirits: "Delicate color and light floral scents indicate the elegant style of Stella di Campalto’s 2008 Brunello.

2008 Scacciadiavoli Sagrantino di Montefalco

93 points James Suckling: "A delicious red with super-integrated tannins that are polished and beautiful. Full body, loads of licorice and berry character and a long, long finish. Superb. Better in 2015 when the tannins are softer but so delicious already. Stylish." (12/2013) 92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "(15.5% alcohol): Bright, deep ruby-red. Black cherry, bitter herbs, violet and licorice on the slightly warm nose. Sweet and creamy in the mouth, showing the depth and intensity of fresh red fruits to support its tannins. In fact, this offers outstanding balance for sagrantino, and the alcohol is far less appar ...Read More »

2008 Corte Rugolin "Monte Danieli" Amarone Classico

The finest wine in the stable at Corte Rugolin, the Monte Danieli Amarone is sourced from a 60 year old vineyard with excellent sun exposure. It is made from 55% Corvina, 15% Corvinone, 5% Rondinella, and a balance of the other local varieties Olinara, Dindarellla, Oseleta, and Croatina. Harvest began in September and the grapes were loaded onto special racks where they were allowed to dry at room temperature in a ventilated room for three months. This process reduced the original weight of the grapes by 35-40% via dehydration, and in turn concentrating ... Read More »

2008 Vignalta "Agno Tinto" Rosso del Veneto

Received 3 stars Vini Veronelli 2013. From the importer: "The latest among the red Vignalta releases: this is an innovative wine, cheerful, with hints of fruit, red and black berries, spicy, with lots of tannins solid but elegant; "iron fist in a velvet glove." A new reference in the Italian wine scene. Born by the contribution of the main Syrah and other local grapes. This wine was was greeted on its debut with a standing ovation."

2008 Il Molino di Grace Chianti Classico Riserva

91 points James Suckling: "Firm and structured red with plum, cedar and tea leaves on the nose and palate. Full and slightly chewy yet polished and flavorful." (10/2012) 90 points Vinous: "Dark cherries, tobacco, scorched earth and leather emerge from a broad-shouldered frame in the 2008 Chianti Classico Riserva. Here, too, there is plenty of character in the glass. As good as the 2008 Riserva is, it could be a better wine if some of the rusticity were tamed a bit. (AG)" (8/2013) 90 points Wine Spectator: "Starting to show some mature notes of leather, autumn woods, spice and dried fruit, this red is traditional in nature. Firm a ...Read More »

2008 Il Valentiano Brunello di Montalcino Riserva

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva feels like a wine made from a whole other producer and a different environment when compared to the estate’s 2009 Brunello Campo Marzo. While that wine is thin and fraught, this Riserva on the other hand, is bountiful and generous especially where the use of oak is concerned. Some 48 months in barrel adds cinnamon and vanilla over dark cherry and blackberry. It is meant for near-term consumption. Drink: 2014-2021. (ML)" (2/2014) Jancis Robinson: "Deep ruby with orange tinges. Balsamic fruit with a hint of incense on the nose, Concentr ...Read More »

2008 Il Carnasciale "Carnasciale" Toscana

92 points Wine Spectator: "Pure, vibrant and elegant, with violet, black currant, cherry and sweet spice flavors. Modern in style, yet stylish and harmonious. Drink now through 2020. (BS)" (9/2011) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Carnasciale comes across as quite fragile in this vintage. Dark cherries, plums, spices and herbs are some of the nuances that emerge from this feminine, delicate wine. The graceful finish leaves a lasting impression. Carnasciale is the second wine of Caberlot. In some recent years it has been an overachiever, but the 2008 is a relatively modest vintage for this bottling. (AG) ...Read More »

2008 Sesta di Sopra Brunello di Montalcino

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Sesta di Sopra’s 2008 Brunello di Montalcino is rather closed in its aromatics, but is more expressive on the palate, where layers of dark red fruit come alive. Smoke, tar, licorice, scorched earth and smoke add an attractive element of gravitas on the finish. Deceptively medium in body, the 2008, nevertheless, packs a serious punch. The long, superbly delineated finish bodes well for the future, but the 2008 needs time in bottle to settle down a bit more. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2026."

2008 Proprieta Sperino Lessona

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Lessona is a serious, serious wine endowed with superb depth and textural richness. Today the tannins are a bit firm, and the wine is, of course, very young, but there is no denying the sheer finesse and pedigree of what is in the glass. Juicy dark cherries, plums, graphite, mint and sweet herbs flesh out beautifully as the 2008 continues to open up. This is a dazzling effort from the De Marchis and Proprieta Sperino. I can’t wait to see how the 2008 ages. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2028. The De Marchi family’s winery in their native Lessona con ...Read More »

(1/2013) Wine Enthusiast: "This opens with pretty, dark concentration and balanced aromas of black cherry and red currant set against leather, cedar and drying mineral notes. That extra density helps soften the sharp acidity." (5/2013)

2008 Campo alla Sughera Toscano Rosso

93 points Vinous: "The estate's top of the line Campo alla Sughera (Petit Verdot/Cabernet Franc) is striking in 2008. A big, broad shouldered wine, the 2008 captures the personality of the year in its cool, mineral-inflected flavors. Graphite, grilled herbs, smoke and melted road tar all blossom from the glass. The 2008 is big, rid and powerful, but also incredibly shut down at this stage. It will be interesting to see what further time in bottle brings, but the 2008 is compelling, even today.

2008 Roberto Voerzio Barolo La Serra
Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2008 Roberto Voerzio Barolo La Serra (96RP, 95WS, 92JS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Barolo La Serra emerges from the glass with dark red fruit, tar, smoke, licorice, spices and new leather. Today the 2008 comes across as surprisingly dark and masculine. The high-toned floral notes that are typical of this site have been replaced by a much darker, brooding register filled with tar, incense and black fruit notes. The wine freshens up beautifully with time in the glass as the aromatics become a bit more expressive. Voerzio’s 2008 La Serra is a huge and hugely promising wine. The firm tannins argue for at least a few more years in bottle. A hint of rose petal lingers on the intense finish. (AG)" (04/2012)
