2010 La Fortuna Brunello di Montalcino (1.5L)

96 points James Suckling: "Aromas of wet earth, meat and dried fruits. Some nuts and spices. Complex. Full body, with super fine tannins and fabulous intensity and richness. Dried cherry and candied citrus fruit. Fabulous finish. You want to drink this now. But shows superb finesse and intensity. Why wait?" (12/2014) 95 points Wine Spectator: "Saturated with cherry, raspberry, spice and tobacco aromas and flavors, this strikes a balanced between the supple texture, succulent acidity and refined yet gripping tannins. Really sings on the lingering finish. Best from 2019 through 2035." (4/2015) 93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Intense berry, viol ...Read More »

2010 Banfi Brunello di Montalcino (1.5L)

95 points James Suckling: "Fabulous aromas of dried rose petal, orange peel, oyster shell and hints of dark fruits. Full body, very fine tannins with a mineral, berry and orange-peel and Tuscan-dust undertone. A structured, salty, savory finish. Better in 2017." (1/2015) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Castello Banfi's 2010 Brunello di Montalcino is one of the ripest wines I have tasted from this vintage. The bouquet opens to chewy tones of cherry or raspberry preserves with dried prunes and figs at the back. This is no surprise considering the softly sloping, sea-facing vineyards located in the lower part of the ...Read More »

2010 Castiglion del Bosco Brunello di Montalcino (1.5L)

96 points James Suckling: "Fabulous aromas of oranges, peaches and mahogany follow through to a full body with rich, chewy tannins and a long, flavorful finish. This is dense, tight, powerful, compressed and incredibly structured. Needs four to five years of bottle age to come out of its dormancy." (1/2015) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino is a ripe and fruit-forward expression that bursts with energy and red fruit intensity even at this young stage in the wine's life. Thick layers of cherry, blackberry, cassis, vanilla and cinnamon give the wine a bold, opulent personality. The tann ...Read More »

2013 La Massa "La Massa" Toscana (1.5L)

93 points James Suckling: "A solid and chewy young red with dried blackberries, licorice and hints of toasted oak and walnuts. A full-bodied, energetic red from the Chianti Classico region of Panzano. Needs two to three years of bottle age. A blend of Sangivoese, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Alicante." (8/2015) 93 points Vinous: "A dark, sumptuous beauty, the 2013 La Massa opens with superb depth and textural richness. Inky blue/purplish fruit, smoke, white pepper and violets are all super-expressive. Pliant, concentrated and deep, the 2013 is shaping up to be a real beauty. I especially like the de ...Read More »

2001 Paolo Scavino "Bric del Fiasc" Barolo (1.5L)

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2001 Barolo Bric del Fiasc is a gorgeous wine laced with smoke, tar, licorice and menthol. The 2001 remains powerful and authoritative, with more than enough fruit to balance its huge tannins. Today it comes across as almost impenetrably young. There is plenty of upside to cellaring this fabulous Barolo. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2031. (AG)" (4/2012) 96 points Vinous: "The 2001 Barolo Bric del Fiasc is a gorgeous wine laced with smoke, tar, licorice and menthol.

2001 Paolo Scavino "Carobric" Barolo (1.5L)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2001 Barolo Carobric comes across as silky, perfumed and utterly impeccable. Sweet red berries, flowers and spices are woven together beautifully in this fragrant Barolo. Readers who enjoy more tertiary notes may want to cellar the 2001 for a few more years as the fruit is still quite primary, but the wine drink well today because of its textural finesse. The Carobric is a blend of fruit sourced from Rocche di Castiglione (60%), Bric del Fiasc (25%) and Cannubi (15%). Anticipated maturity: 2012-2026. (AG)" (4/2012) 93 points Wine Spectator: "Thick and rich with lots of plum, ber ...Read More »

1985 Antinori Secentenario (1.5L)

Jancis Robinson: "Special magnum bottling to celebrate Antinori’s 600th anniversary. Pale ruby with some evolution. Still has some attractive spine as well as definite farmyard character. Sweet start but still lots of acidity and melded tannins. Long, elegant. Light bodied. Great food wine." (3/2005) K&L Notes: This is an INCREDIBLY rare bottling--created at Antinori to commemorate its 600th anniversary in winemaking. A blend of Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc from the Tignanello vineyard, it has never been produced again. Actually a multi-vintage wine, this combines... Read More »

2011 Produttori del Barbaresco "Montestefano" Barbaresco Riserva 1.5L (Pre-Arrival)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "he 2011 Barbaresco Riserva Montestefano is the biggest of the bunch. This wine delivers a lasting sense of structure and intensity that is especially apparent as this Barbaresco hits the palate. The bouquet exhibits signs of ripe fruit with soft layers of blackberry preserves and cherry liqueur. The wine's tannic structure is solid and firmly stitched together, yet this wine is slightly softer and perhaps sweeter than the Riserva Muncagota, for example. This is yet another wine destined for long bottle-aging. It's always a special year when the venerated ...Read More »

2006 Isole e Olena "Gran Selezione" Chianti Classico (1.5L) (Previously $400)

93 points Vinous: "Isole e Olena's 2006 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione, a wine that was originally produced for home consumption, turned out to be the drawing board for the Gran Selezione. Cherry jam, earthiness, spices, mocha, sweet herbs and French oak all meld together in the glass. The 2006 is marked by a slightly oxidative note in its aromatics it has always shown - the result of having spent three and a half years in oak. Otherwise, the 2006 is exceptional. (AG)" (9/2015)

2010 Banfi "Poggio alle Mura" Brunello di Montalcino Riserva (1.5L)

99 points James Suckling: "This is very tannic and powerful with blueberry, blackberry and milk chocolate. Full body, firm tannins and a long and flavorful finish. Shows length and power. A wine for decades ahead. Greatest Banfi red ever." (10/2015) 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "I'm confident this is the best wine (as a new release) I have tasted from Castello Banfi. The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Poggio Alle Mura offers rich intensity with seamless integration between its primary fruit aromas and background oak shadings. It is distinguished by elegant tones of licorice, dark mineral and cola that are a ...Read More »

2010 Poggiarellino Brunello di Montalcino (1.5L) (Pre-Arrival)

95 points James Suckling: "A Brunello with so much forest floor, mushroom and dark fruits on then nose. Fascinating. It's full body, juicy and savory with a wonderful finish of dried meat, berry and dried mushroom. Drinking beautifully now but will age beautifully. Great value." (1/2015) K&L Notes: Poggiarellino is an evolving star in our Direct Import portfolio. From Montalcino, this tiny winery is making superb wines at stunning prices. We've been importing them for over a decade and their wines have simply gotten better and better. From the stunning 2010 vintage, K&L Italian wines buyer Gre... Read More »

2011 Produttori del Barbaresco "Ovello" Barbaresco Riserva 1.5L (Pre-Arrival)

94 points Vinous: "The 2011 Barbaresco Riserva Ovello, from one of the coolest zones in Barbaresco, is superb. Here it is the wine's precision and energy - both hard to come by in 2011 - that really stand out. Pine, mint, chalk, bright red berries, blood orange and white pepper are some of the signatures in a brilliant, finely-cut Barbaresco that captures the best of both the vintage and this site. Don't miss it! (AG)" (12/2015) 93 points Wine Spectator: "A peppery, spicy style, this displays cherry, eucalyptus, tar and black pepper aromas and flavors. Firmly tannic, yet with a core of concentrated sw ...Read More »

2004 Roberto Voerzio Barbera d'Alba Riserva "Vigneto Pozzo dell'Annunziata" (1.5L)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2004 Barbera d’Alba Riserva Pozzo dell’Annunziata explodes from the glass with layers of vibrant black cherries, plums, violets, smoke, minerals and sweet toasted oak. It is a restrained, cool Barbera Pozzo, yet it offers outstanding purity of expression, with silky, finessed tannins that caress the palate in an extraordinary display of elegance that transcends varietal. Voerzio also opened a bottle of the 2003, which he prefers, for comparison. It may be the more pleasurable wine today, but the 2004 is a notch or two above when it comes to potential ...Read More »

2007 Aldo Conterno Barolo "Cicala" 1.5L (Pre-Arrival)

96 points James Suckling: "This is stunning, with licorice, flowers and dark fruits all over. Full and super silky and sexy. I am in love with this wine already. It will age for decades, but it is so in harmony and beautiful now. Gorgeous." (5/2011) 95 points Wine Spectator: "Scented with black cherry and plum, this international-style red shows plenty of smoky, toasty oak on the palate. It's rich, with sweet fruit, ample power and complexity, but will take some time to integrate the tannins. Best from 2016 through 2035. 300 cases imported. –BS" (4/2012) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2007 Barolo Cicala is every bit as compelling as the ...Read More » 

2000 Bruno Giacosa "Asili" Barbaresco Riserva (1.5L - some lightly torn labels)

98 points James Suckling: "The nose alone on this is reason enough to buy this. Rich and decadent with dried meats, dried mushrooms, ripe fruits, all tied together by flowers and a light cigar box character. The palate isn't bad either, loads of dried fruits, full-bodied and rich. Total decadence with a wild character. Makes me smile." (5/2012) 98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2000 Barbaresco Riserva Asili is as it always has been; impeccably refined, nuanced and silky from start to finish. I have tasted (or drunk!) this wine at least a dozen times since it was first released. The bouquet shows the faintest sig ...Read More »

2008 Tenuta dell'Ornellaia "Ornellaia" Bolgheri Superiore (1.5L)

97 points James Suckling: "Impressive nose of dark truffles, milk chocolate and blackberries. Full bodied, with lots of licorice and blackberries and truffles. Very long and intense. 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 »

2003 Roberto Voerzio "Capalot e delle Brunate" Barolo Riserva (1.5L)

94 points Vinous: "Leather, iron, smoke, black cherries, plums and menthol wrap around the palate in the 2003 Barolo Riserva Vecchie Viti dei Capalot e delle Brunate. A huge, hulking wine, the 2003 boasts tons of depth and pure volume. Although not quite as fresh as the Sarmassa, the Vecchie Viti dei Capalot e delle Brunate boasts striking intensity and more than enough depth to drink well for at least another handful of years. Iron, smoke and tobacco wrap around the pulsating finish. (AG)" (6/2014) 94 points Wine Spectator: "Loads of fresh, ripe strawberry on the nose, with lemony undertones. Full-bo ...Read More »

2010 San Filippo "Le Lucere" Brunello di Montalcino Riserva (1.5L) (Pre-Arrival)

100 points James Suckling: "Amazing young Brunello with superb concentration and depth. Full body, chewy yet polished tannins and mineral, oyster shell and blueberry flavors. Goes on for minutes. Leave it until 2020 to open. A triumph." (10/2015) 96 points Wine Spectator: "The sweet, ripe fruit has an immediate impact, offering notes of cherry, strawberry and currant, followed by light oak spice, leather, tobacco and earth accents. The tannins peek through on the finish, but overall this is balanced and long. So harmonious that you may want to enjoy now, but this should only get better with time. Best from 201 ...Read More »

2011 Bartolo Mascarello Barolo (1.5L) (Pre-Arrival)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2011 Barolo is a very expressive wine with more determination and muscle than you usually get in the wines of Bartolo Mascarello. The bouquet opens to plush flavors of red fruit and cherry with grilled herb, tobacco and mineral delineation. Its structure is yielding and round and the finish is ripe with soft fruit flavors. Make no mistake, it doles out complexity and an ethereal sense of balsam herb, cola and licorice that is the hallmark of this historic estate with a tiny garage winery in the town of Barolo. The alcohol reading here is 14.5% compar ...Read More »

1990 Poderi Aldo Conterno "Granbussia" Barolo Riserva (1.5L)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1990 Barolo Riserva Granbussia is a ripe, exotic beauty endowed with plenty of tar, roses, licorice and wild herbs. Still spectacularly rich and intense, this full-bodied, layered Barolo offers superb length and a sweeping finish where the glycerin and sheer weight of the vintage come through in spades. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2020. (AG)" (2/2010) 95 points Wine Spectator: "Rich and powerful but very elegant. Dark ruby color. Aromas of black pepper, spices and berries with a floral character beneath it all. Full-bodied, with well-integrated, fine tannins and a finish that goe ...Read More »
