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 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. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2038. (AG)" (10/2012) Jancis Robinson: "Barolo - La Morra. Mid ruby with broad or ...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 comprised of 55% Corvina, 15% Corvinone, 5% Rondinella, and a balance of the other local varieties of 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 concentr... Read More »

2008 Masi Serego Alighieri Amarone Vaio Armaron

95 points Wine Spectator: "An elegant, impeccably balanced red, layering sculpted tannins with finely knit flavors of plumped black cherry, plum sauce, cured tobacco, dark chocolate and woodsy spice. A rich vein of smoky minerality sings on the lasting finish. Drink now through 2035. 4,000 cases made. –AN" (6/2015)

2008 Antonelli Sagrantino di Montefalco

92 points James Suckling: "Another wonderful red, with ripe, chewy but silky-textured tannins and a long, flavorful finish. Ripe dark fruits, walnuts and flowers. It shows a wonderful balance for the appellation. Drink or hold." (2/2014)90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Montefalco Sagrantino is a massive wine with dark spice aromas, ripe fruit, prune, tar leather and tobacco. The aromas transport you somewhere exotic, like a spice marker in the Middle East. Gritty tannins show some coarseness on the close. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2022. 90+ (ML)" (8/2013) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good deep ruby-red. Subdued nose opens slowly with ...Read More »

2008 Tassi "Franci" Brunello di Montalcino Riserva (Previously $120)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Franci lays on good foundations despite the overall austerity of the 2008 vintage. True to the Riserva moniker, there’s an extra dose of intensity here, a riper style, bright acidity at the back and an added layer of firmness or astringency to the tannins. Even the alcohol feels slightly warmer in the 2008 Riserva compaired to the two 2009 Brunellos although it is not (14% compared to 14.5% for the two 2009 wines). In summary, this wine does exactly with Brnello Riserva should do: It brings you a little bit more of ...Read More »

2008 Foradori Granato Vigneti delle Dolomiti

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Deep ruby. Bright, sappy aromas of red and black berries, flowers, cracked black pepper, vanilla and cinnamon. Sweet, supple and wonderfully dense, with terrific lift to its creamy, palate-saturating blueberry, blackberry and herbal flavors. The long finish features creamy yet vibrant berry and aromatic spice notes and very polished tannins. One of the finest and best balanced Granato bottlings in memory." (3/2012)93 points Wine Spectator: "This rich red offers fine cut and an overall sense of finesse. A smoky, mineral-tinged undertow adds density through the layered flavors of wil ...Read More »

2008 Sesta di Sopra Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Top Pick!
2008 Sesta di Sopra Brunello di Montalcino Riserva

91 points Antonio Galloni: "A dark, brooding wine, the 2008 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva boasts terrific depth and intensity in its black cherries, mocha, scorched earth, game and black olives. The flavors are intense and pungent, while slight hints of oxidation suggest the 2008 is on its way to being fully mature. For now, though, the 2008 offers solid overall balance and plenty of personality. (AG)" (5/2014)91 points James Suckling: "A firm, silky wine with hazelnut and berry character. Medium to full body with firm tannins and a fresh, clean finish. Chewy. Give it time to soften. Better in 2016. ...Read More »

2008 Elio Grasso "Runcot" Barolo Riserva 1.5L

99 points James Suckling: "This is an absolutely fabulous red, with incredible concentration but polish and refinement. It’s full-bodied, with wonderful depth of fruit and length. Complex, with minerals, dark fruits, plums and currants. Speechless. It sends chills up my spine. What a wine. It goes on for minutes. Hard to believe that it’s better than the 2007, but it is. Better in 2020 but so amazing now. Available in February 2015." (9/2014)97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Barolo Riserva Rüncot is an exceptional wine that is only made in the best years. It was produced in 2008, 2010 and 2013.

2008 Sapaio Bolgheri Superiore

(8/2011)94 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* This inky wine opens with black concentration and rich aromas of mature cherry, almond paste, spice, blackberry and plum. Integrated wood tones of leather and toasted coffee complete the picture and help render soft but structured tannins. Drink after 2015."

2008 Moccagatta "Bric Balin" Barbaresco
Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2008 Moccagatta "Bric Balin" Barbaresco (94RP, 92JS, 92ST, 92WE, 91WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Barbaresco Bric Balin wafts from the glass with crushed flowers, dried cherries, tobacco and cedar. It is less overt than the Basarin, with the structural components playing a greater role in the wine’s balance. The energy and focus here are both attractive, while the oak seems to have come down, all of which adds up to a wine with terrific overall balance. The Bric Balin can be enjoyed with minimum cellaring, but it will require some air for the fruit to flesh out. It is a fine effort from the Minuto brothers. (AG)" (10/2011)

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 Domenico Clerico "Ciabot Mentin" Barolo
Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2008 Domenico Clerico "Ciabot Mentin" Barolo (96ST, 93JS, 92RP, 92WS). Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "(Clerico is no longer using Ginestra on the label as of 2007: a change in the law recognized numerous crus, including Ginestra, but since many other growers use Ginestra on their labels, Clerico decided to name this wine after his own parcel): Medium red. Deeper and richer on the nose than the Pajana, with scents of redcurrant, mocha, dried flowers and earth. Wonderfully deep, layered and sweet; lush but with good limestone lift. This floods the palate with flavor and lingers with exceptional purity and persistence. " (10/2011)

2008 Casanova di Neri "Cerretalto" Brunello di Montalcino

94 points James Suckling: "Rich and stylish for the vintage with dried fruits and tar. Full body, chewy tannins and a long, flavorful finish. This is very intense and structured wine for the vintage. Impressive. Like the 1999. Drink or hold." (2/2014)94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Brunello di Montalcino Cerretalto comes from a more challenging vintage for Casanova di Neri with a cooler growing season and more moisture. In fact, the mouthfeel here is noticeably thinner compared to the stunning wines made from this vineyard in 2007 and 2006. Cerretalto is so immensely soft and luscious it is almost too mu ...Read More »

Aromas of red fruit syrup, chocolate, menthol, mint and sweet oak, lifted by minerality. Big, rich and stuffied with spicy raspberry and redcurrant fruit. Nicely integrated acidity and serious ripe tannins give this Barbaresco a good structure for aging, but with its oakiness under control this wine also provides early pleasure. " (11/2011)
