2008 Tenuta San Guido "Sassicaia" Bolgheri (375ml)

97 points James Suckling: "This is the best young Sassicaia in years. It's the new 1988, which was great, and sometimes better than the legendary 1985. What incredible aromas here with blueberries, spices, licorice, plums. Graphite too. Subtle and complex. Full and silky with a beautiful texture of fine tannins and an ultra-fine finish. So beautiful now but will be much better in 2015. Owner Niccolo Incisa della Rocchetta says that Sassicaia is always great in years that end with eight: 1958, 1968, 1978, 1988, 1998, and 2008." (6/2016) 97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Bolgheri Sassicaia is a wine without a ...Read More »

2008 Produttori del Barbaresco "Paje" Riserva (Pre-Arrival)

95 points Decanter: "Delicious rose and red cherry nuances backed up by noteworthy but polished tannins. Pajè doesn’t get any better than this." (8/2013) 95 points Wine & Spirits: "An opulent, luxurious Barbaresco, this wine’s floral scents combine with its tannins to yield an earthy tension in the end, long-lasting and complete. The tannins have nebbiolo’s austere precision, a structure filled up with anise-scented fruit. Substantially and youthfully tough without any sense of excess weight, this has a long life ahead." (12/2012) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Barbaresco Riserva Paje wraps around the palate with layers of dar ...Read More »

2008 Produttori del Barbaresco "Rio Sordo" Riserva (Pre-Arrival)

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Made by what is one of Italy's best co-operative cellars, this riserva from the legendary Rio Sordo vineyard offers intense under - brush aromas of truffle, pine forest, leather and balsam ic notes. The palate has a core of juicy black cherries layered with cinnamon-spice and shows plenty of depth. Drink this after 2018 to let it develop more complexity." (8/2013) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A picture perfect example of site, the 2008 Barbaresco Riserva Rio Sordo is classic Rio Sordo. Medium in body, it possesses a sweet, open bouquet and a relatively medium-bodied personality next t ...Read More »

2008 Produttori del Barbaresco "Pora" Riserva (Pre-Arrival)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Playing true to type, the 2008 Barbaresco Riserva Pora is another of the more open wines in this vintage. But that is only in relative terms. Layers of expressive red fruit, crushed flowers and spices flesh out in this radiant Barbaresco. In most vintages the Pora is one of the more accessible of the Riservas when young. The close proximity of the vineyard to the Tanaro River results in a warm microclimate that ripens the fruit earlier than elsewhere. In 2008, though, the Pora packs a serious punch. The coolness of the late harvest comes through in a fin ...Read More »

2008 Produttori del Barbaresco "Muncagota" Riserva (Pre-Arrival)

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "This single-vineyard Barbaresco Riserva shows lovely floral and fruit scents of violet, iris, ripe berry and pressed powder. The palate is delicious, with black cherry, plum and spice uplifted by freshness and energizing miner - al notes. It has ample depth and balance, and while it’s drinking well now, it will also age for years. Cellar Selection K.O" (8/2012) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Barbaresco Riserva Muncagota is arguably the most open and expressive of the 2008 Riservas. It presents a gorgeous soft core of fruit to match an open personality. Although I wouldn’t sugge ...Read More »

2008 Elio Grasso "Gavarini Chiniera" Barolo
Bid on this bottle of 2008 Elio Grasso "Gavarini Chiniera" Barolo (97RP, 95WS, 94JS, 94ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Barolo Gavarini Vigna Chiniera is flat-out great. Sweet roses, spices, mint, flowers and red berries are some of the notes that emerge from this profound, utterly moving Barolo. The 2008 possesses dazzling inner perfume, endless layers of bright red fruit and stunning overall balance. Fine, silky tannins frame the extraordinarily elegant finish. This is a fabulous wine from Gianluca Grasso and his family. Chalky notes frame an energetic, brilliant finish sprinkled with shades of the 1989. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2033. 97+ (AG)" (04/2012)

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 »

2008 Tenuta dell'Ornellaia "Ornellaia" Bolgheri Superiore (375ml)

98 points James Suckling: "I love Ornellaia. Amazing aromas of currants, blackberries, and hints of vanilla cream. Licorice too. Full bodied, with soft and velvety tannins and an amazing depth of fruit. Balanced and super long. I can't get over the wonderful texture to this young red. It touches every inch of your palate and caresses it. Leave it for four or five years still, but it's hard not to drink." (4/2011) 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 glas ...Read More »

2008 Gaja "Sori San Lorenzo" Langhe (1.5L)

96 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good medium red. Perfumed nose combines minerals, rose petal, menthol, spices and herbs. The tightest of these 2008s, but already displaying outstanding energy and precision to its intense dark fruit and floral flavors. The firm, late-arriving tannins are perfectly supported by strong dark fruits on the back end. This wonderfully juicy wine boasts a near-perfect balance for extended aging. A knockout in the making. 96+" (11/2011) 96 points Vinous: "The 2008 Sorì San Lorenzo is an especially dark, imposing wine. Here the flavors are inward and brooding, with massive intensity ...Read More »
