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 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, in turn concentrating the ... 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 Castello dei Rampolla Chianti Classico

90 points James Suckling: "I like the chocolate, berry and meat aromas and flavors. Full-bodied, with fine tannins and porcini. Finishes with milk chocolate. Wonderful now." (12/2011) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Chianti Classico is a cool, inviting wine laced with dark wild cherries, licorice, leather and tobacco, all of which flow gracefully. This mid-weight Chianti Classico is all grace and elegance. Sweet, elegant tannins round out the finish. The Chianti Classico is 95% Sangiovese and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon that spent 12 months in cask. (AG)" (8/2011) Wine Spectator: "This red is infused with a fresh minerality, show ...Read More »

2008 Tenuta San Guido "Sassicaia" Bolgheri

97 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* Recently implemented winemaker and cellar changes make this one of the best Sassicaias ever. This Cabernet Sauvignon-Cabernet Franc blend delivers thick concentration and sun-kissed aromas of black fruit, prune, dried bay leaf, black olive and tobacco. The thick, fertile soils that characterize the magical strip of coastal Tuscany at Bolgheri help shape amazing richness and intensity." (2/2012) 96 points James Suckling: "Intense flavors of blackberries and flowers. Sexy and dressed up to go out. Full and velvety. Intense and juicy with velvety tannins and a long f ...Read More »

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 Bellaria "Assunto" Brunello di Montalcino

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 Ciabot Berton Barolo

91 points James Suckling: "A beautiful balance to this wine with plum, chocolate and cedar character. Medium-to-full bodied, it shows the quality and complexity of 2008. Drink or hold." (12/2013) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Ciabot Berton’s 2008 Barolo is a gorgeous entry-level wine laced with expressive red berries, crushed flowers and licorice. The 2008 impresses for its overall sense of balance, poise and harmony. In particular, the tannins are considerably more polished and harmonious than has been the case in the recent past. This is one of the very best Baroli I have ever tasted at Ciabot Berton. The 2008 ...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.

Chocolate and cedar. Orange peel. So long and beautiful. Love the finish. Very approachable now but better in four or five years." (07/2012)

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 Fattoria Le Pupille "Saffredi" Maremma Toscana

96 points James Suckling: "Love the aromas of blackberries, licorice and lightly toasted oak. Full bodied, with velvety tannins and a rich finish. Ripe tannins with a beautiful polished. Vanilla. Will come together with bottle age. Very serious as always. Such class and complexity. Best after 2014." (8/2011) 94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Vintner Elisabetta Geppetti’s Saffredi is part cult wine and part mainstream blockbuster in that the wine enjoys worldwide fame, but few know it well. This vintage is soft and luscious, with loads of dark chocolate, cherry, blackberry, tobacco and spice. It’s gorgeous down to th ...Read More »

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 Tenuta dell'Ornellaia "Ornellaia" Bolgheri Superiore (1.5L)

Goes on for minutes. This is amazing and firm, with a racy character. Best after 2016." (8/2011) 97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Ornellaia continues to blossom in the bottle. Dark cherries, chocolate, espresso, blackberries and mocha are just some of the many notes that explode from the glass. A rich tapestry of licorice, tar and camphor notes develop in the glass, adding considerable complexity. The 2008 is a huge, structure ...Read More »
