2015 Val delle Rose "Aurelio" Toscana (Pre-Arrival)

95 points James Suckling: "A glorious red with intense and focused blackberry character and hints of wet earth. Bark and chocolate, too. Full body, layered and dense. A great wine. 100% Merlot. Drink in 2020 but already fascinating." (8/2017) K&L Notes: Modeled after the brilliant Merlots of Tuscany (or top-tier Right Bank blends from Bordeaux), this is a poster child for the remarkable quality and value to be found in Tuscany's superlative 2015 vintage. From the producer: "We are extremely proud of our newest addition to the Val delle Rose Estate range. Born as a tribute to Maremma, the name... Read More »

2015 Petrolo "Galatrona" Toscana (Pre-Arrival)

99 points James Suckling: "Terrific aromas of violets, roses and raspberries with hints of strawberries and brown sugar. Full body. Phenomenal layers of focused fruit and polished velvety tannins. This is the Galatrona that everyone has been waiting for. It's the vintage that shows depth and power yet wonderful finesse and focus. Best ever. Drink from 2023 but already electrifying."

2015 Fattoria le Pupille "Saffredi" Maremma Toscana (Pre-Arrival)

99 points James Suckling: "I love the currant and rosemary character of this wine. Some sage, too. Complex aromas that draw you in. Full body, extremely tight and chewy with a long and intense finish. The tannins are fantastic - so polished. Focused and beautiful. Mineral undertone with ash and hot stone highlighting the dark fruits. It goes on for minutes. Needs three or four years to come together. But a serious red all the way." (8/2017)

2011 Felsina "Fontalloro" Toscana (Elsewhere $55)

95 points James Suckling: "Aromas of dark chocolate, berries, toasted nuts and vanilla bean follow through to a full body, firm tannins and a juicy finish. Lots of intense, beautiful fruit. Tight, layered red. All there. Better in 2017." (11/2014) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2011 Fontalloro is a pure expression of Sangiovese with fruit sourced from the Chianti Classico area and the Colli Senesi area. It ages in new and once-used barrique for up to 22 months. Aromas flow with authority, spanning a large swath of fruit and oak-related attributes.

2015 Bibi Graetz "Testamatta" Rosso Toscana (Pre-Arrival)

Full body, silky tannins and a juicy finish. I love the tension and texture of this great red. So gorgeous to taste now but better in 2021." (8/2017) K&L Notes: Once a blend, Graetz made the conversion to 100% Sangiovese in Testamatta starting in 2006 and notched a WS98 score that placed it among the top single-varietal Sangiovese bottlings from this great vintage.

2014 Tenuta San Guido "Guidalberto" Toscana (Elsewhere $45)

94 points Decanter: "The second wine of Tuscan legend, Sassicaia. If you like Bordeaux, you will love this – a riper, modern take on the French style. The blend of 60% Cabernet and 40% Merlot aged in French and American oaks offers up ripe, almost sweet, fruits with layers of black cherry, blackcurrant, liquorice and spice. A luxurious mouthfeel with cocoa-dusted tannins make this a great food wine and is truly incredible value for the quality. Another winner from Tenuta San Guido."

Provocative. A classic Super Tuscan. A blend of Sangiovese and Malvasia Nera. Drink in 2019." (11/2016) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "As always, this celebrated wine shows excellent results. The 2012 I Sodi di S. Niccolò (85% Sangioveto and 15% Malvasia Nera) is a young wine that needs time to flesh out. It shows bright berry flavors and fresh acidity that will benefit from more time to relax and integrate.

Dark chocolate too. This a real mouthful yet remains agile and powerful. Linear and long finish. Great precision. Best ever from Guado al Tasso?"

2014 Trinoro "Le Cupole" Toscana

Offers a backbone of mouthcoating tannins and remains integrated as the finish lingers. Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. Best from 2018 through 2027. *Top 100 of 2016, Smart Buys* (BS)" (10/2016) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The gorgeous 2014 Le Cupole defies the difficulties of the vintage thanks to extreme fruit selection (executed over numerous individual harvests).

Careful work has been done here to ensure the high quality of fruit. The Fontalloro vineyard is located on the border of the Chianti Classico and the Chianti Colli Senesi appellations. Many have called upon Fèlsina to change the wine's status to Chianti Classico Gran Selezione, but technically it can't be because of much of the vineyard is located outside the denomination limi ...Read More »

Vinous: "The 2014 Bolgheri Il Bruciato, the entry-level wine from Antinori's Guado al Tasso property, is powerful, juicy and intense. Then again, Antinori was extremely severe in 2014. The Cont'Ugo and Matarocchio will not be bottled at all, while production of Guado al Tasso is down sharply. This is an absolutely delicious wine for the year within its relatively modest (by Bolgheri standards) price range.

2010 Isole e Olena "Cepparello" Toscana

96 points Vinous: "Isole e Olena's 2010 Cepparello is magnificent. In particular, I admire the way the wine fleshes out in all directions, with seemingly endless layers of dark, mineral-infused berry, plum and pomegranate notes. A primal wine in need of significant cellaring, the 2010 is easily one of the highlights of the year. Bright, saline notes support the precise finish. Today, the 2010 is naturally quite backward and undeveloped, but it should be a gem in another 5-10 years. This is an especially dark, structured Cepparello built for the cellar.

This Cabernet Sauvignon offers a determined load of black fruit followed by a long array of subtle detailing with spice, leather and bitter chocolate. You also get balsam herb, crushed mineral and a touch of green olive. The wine offers a stunning level of fullness and complexity with softly layered and fine tannins that caress the palate.

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

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."

2013 San Giusto a Rentennano "Percarlo" Toscana (Pre-Arrival)

Creamy and beautifully layered in the glass, the 2013 speaks to finesse more than the power and explosiveness that is often found here. With time in the glass, the mid-palate fleshes out and the flavors gain in intensity and darkness. When young, Percarlo is often forbiddingly tannic, but the gradual move towards larger format barrels and casks has, among other things, given the wine much more textural elegance. I can't wait to see how it ages. This is one of the most complete and ...Read More »

A blend of Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. So pretty now but better in 2014." (11/2012) 90 points Vinous: "The 2009 Pergolaia, a Sangiovese/Merlot/Cabernet Franc blend, is quite beautiful. Floral and medium in body, the 2009 flows across the palate with nuanced fruit and lovely overall balance.

It lives 18 months of its life in French and 3% American oak before being released.

2013 Ornellaia "Ornellaia" Bolgheri Superiore

Alex Heinz tells me that 2013 was a difficult vintage especially towards the early part of the growing season. It balanced out during the summer and allowed for steady ripening of fruit before the harvest. But 2013 was not as hot as 2011 and 2012 overall, and this edition of Ornellaia is beautifully tonic and shapely as a result. The bouquet is very developed in terms of aromas t ...Read More »

1998 Antinori "Guado al Tasso" Bolgheri Superiore

95 points Wine Spectator: "Wonderful balance here. Violet and berry aromas, with intense tarragon and currant character. Full-bodied and gorgeous, with wonderful finesse and subtlety. Very long. *Ranked #6, Top 100 Wines of 2001* (JS)" (11/2001) 93 points James Suckling: "Fruity and spicy with meat and dried herbs. Full and round with velvety tannins. Warm and decadent." (8/2013) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Bolgheri is the source for some of Italy's greatest proprietary red wine blends of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. No other region in the world (other than Pomerol and St.-Emilion) has produced such great Merlots. The 1998 Guado Al Tass ...Read More »

2015 Petrolo "Galatrona" Toscana (1.5L) (Pre-Arrival)

99 points James Suckling: "Terrific aromas of violets, roses and raspberries with hints of strawberries and brown sugar. Full body. Phenomenal layers of focused fruit and polished velvety tannins.

2013 San Giusto a Rentennano Chianti Classico "Le Baroncole" Riserva (Pre-Arrival)

94 points Vinous: "The 2013 Chianti Classico Riserva Le Baroncole wraps around the palate with succulent red cherry, plum, spice, tobacco and leather. The new oak has come down in favor of larger barrels and casks, which allows the purity of the fruit to come through loud and clear. In the past, the Baroncole was often penalized by excessive new oak, but that is no longer the case today. Readers who haven't tasted the Baroncole in a few years will be in for a real surprise. This is a superb effort. An unusually suave, silky Chianti Classico of pure finesse, the 2013 Baronc ...Read More »

2012 Amantis "Birbanera" Montecucco

This is a producer to watch. Amantis' "Birbanera" Montecucco Rosso sure packs a lot of ripe Sangiovese and seductive spice aroma and flavors into an affordable and delicious bottle. Primarily Sangiovese the blend is enhanced with a little Merlot and Canaiolo which bring body and lush fruit to compliment Sangiovese's energy and high tone. Antonio Galloni wrote after tasting the 2007s: "These are the first wines I have tasted from Amantis, a new winery located in Montecucco owned by consulting oenologist Paolo Vaggagini. Super high-density vineyards and ti... Read More »

2014 Antinori "Tignanello" Toscana

94 points James Suckling: "Really pretty aromas of currants and roses follow through to a medium body, firm and silky tannins and a fresh finish. Very well done for 2014 and a wonderful Tignanello to drink now or later. Better in 2019." (8/2017) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tignanello has this amazing ability of always being, well, Tignanello. Its very DNA makes it among the most distinctive and recognizable wines in the world. I'm happy to report that this is also the case for the 2014 Tignanello that faced very different growing conditions compared to most. The wine is beautiful and balanced with sweet tannin ...Read More »

2006 Tenuta San Guido "Sassicaia" Bolgheri (375ml)

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Tenuta San Guido 2006 Bolgheri Sassicaia is a timeless classic. This might just be the vintage to photograph in an encyclopedia entry for Sassicaia. This is especially true at this exact moment in its long and promising drinking window. The wine shows less volume compared to some of the more opulent vintages, but it absolutely excels in terms of length and finish. It offers amazing drive and momentum that are fueled by the extremely fine nature of the wine's texture and the seamless unity of its flavors. It treads in light and delicate footsteps that ...Read More »

2010 Tenuta dell'Ornellaia "Ornellaia" Bolgheri Superiore (375ml)

98 points Vinous: "How many dinners anywhere start with a wine on a level with the 2010 Ornellaia? I imagine not many. Super-expressive aromatics soar out of the glass as the 2010 shows off its personality. Sweet herbs, tobacco, licorice, mocha and tar wrap around a core of intense dark fruit. Racy, powerful and majestic, the 2010 is a total stunner. (AG)" (1/2017) 97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Poured from the special anniversary bottle, the 2010 Bolgheri Superiore Ornellaia is a truly outstanding wine that leaves a lasting memory for those who are lucky enough to enjoy it.

2006 Tenuta dell'Ornellaia "Ornellaia" Bolgheri Superiore (375ml)

98 points Vinous: "The second flight is a comparison of power versus finesse. A towering, vivid wine, the 2006 Ornellaia bristles with power, depth and intensity. Broad swaths of tannin support the vibrant, youthful flavors in a captivating, breathtaking wine of the highest level. (AG)" (1/2017) 97 points James Suckling: "This is complex and fascinating. At first taste it is like a great California Cabernet mixed with a first growth Bordeaux. Delicious licorice, mint, and currants on the palate. Full bodied, chewy, with ultra fine tannins.
