2015 Castelgiocondo "Campo ai Sassi" Rosso di Montalcino

The Frescobaldis are one of Tuscany’s oldest wine families. They are based in Rufina, just east of Florence, and they have wineries in multiple zones across Italy. While their family history is definitely rooted in Florence, their estate in Montalcino, Castello di Nipozzano, defined Chianti Rufina in the US for decades. They are practiced royals, elegant and well spoken, even when it comes to sotto-voce, but when they talk about Montalcino there’s always a twinkle in their eyes. The estate is on the west-south-west side of Montalcino.

2013 Fossacolle Brunello di Montalcino (Pre-Arrival)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Fossacolle has produced an excellent set of new releases. At the top of the list is the 2013 Brunello di Montalcino, which exhibits a spectacular level of inner balance and positive energy. There is a level of aromatic happiness or brightness here that denotes carefully ripened Sangiovese grapes. In other words, you can taste that the fruit has not been stressed by adverse weather conditions. The 2013 vintage is indeed harmonious across the board, and this wine demonstrates that fact. (ML)" (2/2018) 92 points James Suckling: "Aromas of cherry, coffee and orange peel follow through t ...Read More »

2001 Casisano-Colombaio Brunello di Montalcino

There's fudge and spiced chocolate in the mouth with a pinch of sour cherry over a black velvety finish. A solid, broad wine for guaranteed gratification but no hidden surprises." (4/2006) 90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Deep red. Fairly primary aromas of dark berries, flowers and exotic spices. Juicy and ti ...Read More »

2012 La Magia Brunello di Montalcino

Love the bitter-orange undertone to this. Drink in 2020." (11/2016) 92 points Vinous: "Deep ruby-red. Sassafrass, underbrush and flint complement dark red cherry aromas and flavors.

2001 Poggio Nardone Brunello di Montalcino

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Here is a vanilla- and cedar-infused wine that sparked discord among our panelists.

2012 Costanti Brunello di Montalcino Riserva (Pre-Arrival)

100 points Wine Enthusiast: "Heady scents of chopped herbs, woodland berry, forest floor, new leather, dark spice and violet are just some of the aromas you’ll find on this fragrant wine. It’s savory and loaded with finesse, delivering juicy Marasca cherry, raspberry compote, licorice, orange zest and pipe tobacco alongside firm yet polished tannins and fresh acidity. A tangy mineral note graces the lingering finish. It’s still young and needs plenty of time to fully unwind and develop. Drink 2027-2042. (KO)" (2/2018) 98 points Vinous: "Vivid deep red. Musky, deep, mineral-tinged aromas of red cherry ...Read More »

2012 Valdicava Brunello di Montalcino

96 points James Suckling: "I like the ripe-fruit and smoked-meat aromas to this. Subtle and complex. Medium to full body, firm and silky tannins and a long and chewy finish. Needs time to soften. Very structured for the vintage." (11/2016) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Valdicava represents its own school within the greater Brunello philosophy. This estate (under proprietor Vincenzo Abbruzzese) crafts contemporary and modern wines with noticeable density and ever-present aromatic intensity.
