2015 Ferrero "Pepita" Rosso di Toscana Top Pick!
2015 Ferrero "Pepita" Rosso di Toscana

I've always loved this wine ever since we helped create it. Pablo Harri the winemaker and husband of the eponymous Claudia Ferrero had planted a vineyard just south across the river from their estate in Montalcino with 34% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot, 16% Montepulciano and 17% Alicante grapes. Initially he produced 100% varietals from each that were good and even well scored with the critics, but they were impossible to sell. We were all sitting at a table at the winery when I thought what if we just blend them all together, so I grabbed some glasses... Read More »

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. *Ranked #9 on Top 100 of 2017*" (8/2017) 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Saffredi is a sultry and velvety wine from the Tuscan Coast. The blend is 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Me ...Read More »

2014 San Guido "Sassicaia" Bolgheri

95 points Wine Enthusiast: "Aromas of red berry, blue flower, menthol, exotic spice and a whiff of French oak take shape on this impeccably balanced radiant red. The palate is vibrant and focused—almost ethereal—delivering raspberry compote, Marasca cherry, star anise and cinnamon framed in elegant tannins. Weightless and loaded with finesse, it's an incredible result for what was a cool wet vintage in most of Italy. (KO)" (12/2017) 93 points Decanter: "Relatively pale and limpid, this has a hauntingly beautiful aromatic quality of lilies, violet, cassis and cherry, which in sum is utterly beguiling.

2013 Tenuta Belguardo Maremma Toscana (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
2013 Tenuta Belguardo Maremma Toscana (Pre-Arrival)

95 points Wine Spectator: "A red of great purity and polish, offering black cherry, blackberry, spice and herb flavors, this evokes tobacco, graphite and leather nuances as it builds nicely on the palate. Finishes with grip, harmony and complexity, as well as terrific length. (BS)" (5/2017) 93 points James Suckling: "Very polished red here with blueberry, hazelnut and floral character. Medium body, fine tannins and a bright finish. Persistent on the palate." (7/2016) 92 points Vinous: "Succulent red cherry, raspberry jam, flowers, mint and new French oak meld together in the 2013 Tenuta Belguardo. Forward and open-knit, the 2013 ...Read More »

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. A gorgeous, classy wine that needs to be left in the cellar fo ...Read More »

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 »

2007 Teresa Raiz Decano Rosso

This is a blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and a little Cabernet Franc, aged one year in Allier oak barrels. Friuli-Venezia-Giulia, the easternmost region in Italy, lies just east of Venice leaning against the Slovenian and Croatian borders. It is home to many small wineries including one of our favorites, Ermacora. Most of the famous wines produced in Friuli (the everyday usage of Friuli-Venezia-Giulia) are white but over the past couple of decades the quality of reds has jumped considerably.

2014 Ornellaia "Ornellaia" Bolgheri Superiore Top Pick!
2014 Ornellaia "Ornellaia" Bolgheri Superiore

95 points James Suckling: "A solid and structured red with tile, dark berry and black tea character and some cloves, too. Full body, tannic and rich. Needs time to soften. Well done for a 2014. Ornellaia shows its pedigree here. Better in 2019." (8/2047) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "To be released in May 2017, the 2014 Bolgheri Superiore Ornellaia reverts to a style and personality that we have not seen in a long while. The wine shows a tight, silky and determined approach that reminds us of the Ornellaias made under the estate's previous ownership with the Marchese Lodovico Antinori in the mid-1990s.

2015 Trinoro "Le Cupole" Toscana

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Le Cupole feels downplayed next to the other new releases from Tenuta di Trinoro in this exuberant and opulent 2015 vintage. This blend of Bordeaux grapes is slightly more immediate and accessible in approach. That said, it is far more sophisticated and richly textured compared to the great majority of wines from the surrounding hillsides of Tuscany. Black cherry, sweet spice and tarry earth converge on the bouquet. The mouthfeel is slightly sweet and rich in texture." (10/2017)

2013 Piaggia Carmignano "Il Sasso"

90 points Vinous: "The 2013 Carmignano Il Sasso is a very pretty, nuanced wine loaded with personality. Succulent dark cherry, plum, smoke, licorice, violet and menthol are all forward and deeply expressive. This is a decidedly mid-weight, gracious vintage for Il Sasso. The nuanced bouquet and silky tannins add to an overall impression of finesse. The Sasso is an especially ripe, forward expression of Carmignano, with all the elements nicely balanced throughout. (AG)" (3/2016) 90 points Wine Spectator: "Bright cherry flavors and hint of herbs and spice highlight this focused red. Tobacco and earth not ...Read More »

(11/2016) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Made with Cabernet Sauvignon (65%), Merlot (30%) and Petit Verdot (5%), the impeccable 2012 Giorgo Primo is attractive from every angle.

2007 Tenuta San Guido "Sassicaia" Bolgheri (375ml)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Here's a wine of power, determination and confidence—as far as first impressions go. The 2007 Bolgheri Sassicaia leaves little hidden behind the curtain. It presents a frank and straightforward array of bold fruit, spice, leather and tobacco-like aromas that emerge from the bouquet with energy and force. The aromas are complete and genuine. The palate, however, offers more space for interpretation and review. It is finessed and nuanced, thus requiring more time to fully comprehend and appreciate. Silky tannins are followed by fine textural smoothness and ...Read More »

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."

Rosemary, sage, plums and black cherry notes meld into graphite, crushed rocks and a host of other more mineral-inflected nuances. Beautifully persistent and chiseled in the glass, the 2010 is ultimately all about energy. This is going to be a fascinating vintage to follow. (AG)" (10/2015) 94 points James Suckling: "The 2010 Sassicaia was just released and it's an outstanding bottle. I think that people are going to love this newest Sass.

2009 Tenuta dell'Ornellaia "Ornellaia" Bolgheri Superiore (375ml)

Sweet red berries, mocha, flowers, new leather and spices are some of the many notes that are layered in this sumptuous, totally beautiful wine. The 2009 stands out for its silky tannins and phenomenal overall balance. This is one of those wines that will probably enjoy a long drinking window. There is little question the ability to blend grape varieties was a huge help in this vintage. In my opinion, that is the main reason Ornellaia is a slightly more complete wine than Mass ...Read More »
