2013 Sette Ponti "Crognolo" Toscana (Pre-Arrival)

95 points James Suckling: "Lots currants, blueberries, vanilla and floral character on the nose and palate. Full body, fine tannins and a fresh finish. Edgy contrast of acidity, ripe fruit and wood. Stylish, savory and delicious. A blend of Sangiovese and Merlot. One of the best values amongst Super Tuscan reds. Drink in 2016." (8/2015) Vinous: "The 2013 Crognolo offers notable intensity, with searing tannins that are a bit overpowering at this stage. Dark red cherry, raspberry and white pepper are some of the signatures. Today, the Crognolo is a bit linear and compact. It will be interestin ...Read More »

2013 Ornellaia "Ornellaia" Bolgheri Superiore

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This wine will be released in May 2016. The 2013 Bolgheri Superiore Ornellaia is an integrated and seamless blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot. 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 »

2006 Tenuta San Guido "Sassicaia" Bolgheri

97 points Vinous: "The 2006 Sassicaia may very well go down as one of the all-time great recent vintages for this Tuscan thoroughbred. The year started off very warm but by August evening temperatures had moderated, leaving the fruit with a stunning combination of ripeness, perfume, acidity and tannin. The wine is simply glorious, that's all there is to it. Layers of dark fruit meld into smoke, leather, violets, menthol, earthiness and tar as this profound wine opens up in the glass. The creamy, silky finish lasts an eternity, as waves of fruit caress the tannins with brea ...Read More »

2012 Grattamacco "L'Alberello" Bolgheri Superiore Top Pick!
2012 Grattamacco "L'Alberello" Bolgheri Superiore

97 points James Suckling: "Full body, ultra-fine and silky tannins and a soft and fruity finish. Ripe and balanced with beautiful fruit and freshness. A wine with style and beauty. A tiny-production, single-vineyard red made from Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot." (8/2015) 94 points Vinous: "Grattamacco's 2012 Bolgheri Superiore Alberello is finely-spun in the glass, with striking finesse and nuance. Sweet cherry, plum, smoke, licorice and spice notes open up effortlessly with air. The 2012 is ripe and juicy, but also quite classic in its mid-weight structure. The 2012 finishes with ...Read More »

2011 La Massa "Giorgio Primo" Toscana (Elsewhere $100)

95 points James Suckling: "Captivating aromas of blueberries, raspberries, violets and orange peel. Full body with crazy tannins." (9/2013) 94 points Vinous: "The 2011 Giorgio Primo is just as beautiful today as it was last year, even if it has barely budged since then. Blackberry jam, spices, licorice, smoke and new leather meld together in a seamless voluptuous wine endowed with superb depth and pure textural richness. The oak still needs time to integrate, but there is a lot to look forward to here. (AG)" (9/2014) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2011 Giorgio Primo is the latest edition of one of my favorite Tuscan blends. Caber ...Read More »

2001 Tenuta San Guido "Sassicaia" Bolgheri

94 points Wine Spectator: "Beautiful aromas of summer fruits and hints of cream. Then turns to dried Provençal herbs, such as rosemary. Well-defined Sass. Full-bodied, with sleek, refined tannins and a silky finish. All in finesse. Classy wine. Almost chewy. Reminds me of the excellent 1997, but this is slightly better. Give it time. Best after 2008. (JS)" (10/2004) 91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright red with a pale rim. Still reticent nose hints at redcurrant, pomegranate, graphite and cedar. Softer and more approachable than usual for young Sassicaia, with fleshy, easygoing flavors of redcurrant, cassis, b ...Read More »

2012 San Guido "Sassicaia" Bolgheri Top Pick!
2012 San Guido "Sassicaia" Bolgheri

99 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* One of Italy’s most iconic bottlings, the 2012 Sassicaia is drop-dead gorgeous. A blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Cabernet Franc, it boasts sensations of blue flowers, cedar, juicy red currants, ripe raspberries, white pepper and a balsamic note. Structured, radiant and loaded with finesse, it delivers everything you’d expect from a world-class wine and more. Drink 2018–2032. (KO)" (8/2015) 95 points James Suckling: "Lots of lavender, minerals and black currants on the nose. Turns to black berries. Full body, ultra-refined tannins and an exquisite finish. ...Read More »

2013 San Guido "Sassicaia" Bolgheri (Pre-Arrival)

98 points James Suckling: "Fabulous structure for a Sassicaia with powerful, polished, chewy tannins and ripe, subtle fruit. Aromas of blueberry, black currant, rosemary and lavender. Full body, bright acidity and a savory finish. Juicy and lively. Better to drink this beginning in 2020 but so impressive now." (2/2016) 97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Bolgheri Sassicaia is released 30 years after the death of Tenuta San Guido founder, Mario Incisa della Rocchetta, and in the same year that his son Nicolò celebrated his 80th birthday. This is a wine of excellent execution, beautiful balance and seamless int ...Read More »

2011 Isole e Olena "Collezione Privata" Cabernet Sauvignon Toscana

96 points Vinous: "96+ points. The 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Collezione Privata is superb. Black cherry jam, crème de cassis, smoke, plums, menthol, licorice and violets form a stunning backdrop as the 2011 opens up in the glass. Sumptuous and layered yet also quite fresh (especially for the year), the 2011 possesses superb balance and exceptional finesse. The intensity of the fruit nearly buries the tannins, but they are there. My impression is that the 2011 will offer a long and wide window of pure drinking pleasure.

2010 Casanova di Neri "Pietradonice" Toscana

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2010 Pietradonice is beautiful in this vintage. A wine more of Montalcino than a true expression of Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2010 is delineated and vibrant from start to finish. Savory herbs lead to black plums, tobacco, mocha and crushed rocks on the firm, vibrant finish. I am not a huge fan of international varieties in Montalcino, but there is no question the Pietradonice is endowed with tons of vintage character, and 2010 is a superb vintage for this part of Tuscany in particular. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025. (AG)" (6/2013) 92 points James Suckling: "This is a wine that s ...Read More »

2003 Tenuta San Guido "Sassicaia" Bolgheri

96 points Wine & Spirits: "Great terroirs often prove themselves in the most extreme vintages, as Sassicaia has done in the violent heat of 2003. The vineyard produced a supple, subtle and elegant wine. To describe the fruit character one might resort to analogies with black currant and smoky black tea, but it's more a textural experience for now, a mass of pleasure, hard to grasp. Its oak treatment delivers the kind of heady richness found in young Latour; its soil character provides a completely different context, though no less grand. Probably best starting at ten to fifteen ye ...Read More »

2011 Rocca di Montegrossi "Geremia" Toscana

95 points Vinous: "The 2011 Geremia, the estate's Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot blend, offers tons of energy to balance its dark, inky fruit. Lavender, menthol, melted road tar, sage, crème de cassis and grilled herbs are some of the many signatures. The ripeness and raciness of the year come through in spades, yet there is an element of pulsating intensity in the glass that plays off the more overt elements nicely. This is another superb showing from Rocca di Montegrossi. (AG)" (9/2015) 93 points James Suckling: "A soft and rich Super Tuscan with lots of juicy and ripe fruit. Very reminiscent of the New ...Read More »

2008 Tenuta San Guido "Sassicaia" Bolgheri

97 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* Recently implemented winemaker and cellar changes make this one of the best Sassicaias ever. This Cabernet Sauvignon-Cabernet Franc blend delivers thick concentration and sun-kissed aromas of black fruit, prune, dried bay leaf, black olive and tobacco. The thick, fertile soils that characterize the magical strip of coastal Tuscany at Bolgheri help shape amazing richness and intensity." (2/2012) 96 points James Suckling: "Intense flavors of blackberries and flowers. Sexy and dressed up to go out. Full and velvety. Intense and juicy with velvety tannins and a long f ...Read More »

2001 Antinori "Solaia" Toscana

96 points Vinous: "The 2001 Solaia is similar to the 1999, but with an added level of finesse that takes the place of some of the brute power found in the 1999. The 2001 drinks well better young than the 1999, but it is also likely to mature earlier. (AG)" (12/2013) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep, dark sensations of smoke, tar and scorched earth emerge from the powerful 2001 Solaia. This fresh, vibrant offering is packed with dense ripe fruit. This is an especially rich, heavy style of Solaia that lacks the subtlety and grace of the finest vintages. Still, in 2001 Solaia is a more complete wine than ...Read More »

2004 Antinori "Solaia" Toscana

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2004 Solaia is breathtaking, as it so often is. Soaring aromatics lead to a sweet, layered expression of dark fruit. The wine possesses super clarity and precision with a gorgeous inner tension that carries all the way through to the long finish. The tannins remain incredibly finessed and silky. This is a more restrained, elegant style than the full-throttle 2001. 2004 is the first vintage in which the component wines were aged separately, rather than together, as had been the custom in previous vintages."

2000 Tenuta dell'Ornellaia "Ornellaia" Bolgheri Superiore

97 points Wine & Spirits: "(No tasting note given.)" (4/2004) 94 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* Deep and delicious, with an earth-driven nose that conveys quality. Chunky plum pervades the chewy, dark palate, which offers a gorgeous mouthfeel and admirable depth. Only on the finish do you get a slight hint of oak. Overall it’s entirely solid and very likable, but as good as it is, it’s not quite on the level of the ’98 or ’99, which were amazing. (MS)" (11/2003) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2000 Ornellaia (magnum) is a pretty, well-balanced offering with good concentration and complexity.

2012 Campo alla Sughera "Adeo" Bolgheri DOC

Needs some time to absorb the oak. Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Best from 2016 through 2024. 4,200 cases made. (BS)" (2/2015) 90 points James Suckling: "Crisp cherry skins, cola and chiseled stone. Nice core richness with noted oak marks. Full-bodied with ample tannin. Well crafted and balanced. Made from merlot and cabernet. Drink in 2015." (10/2014)

The flavors are bright, focused and vibrant to the core, all with a stunning sense of energy and pure class. The 2010 looks to have a very bright future. What a gorgeous wine this is. Geremia is 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon.

Give it time to develop. Best after 2001." (11/1999) Jancis Robinson: "Again very little sign of ageing in the colour. Distinctive slightly medicinal nose. Herbal but also dark cherries and olives and elegant on the nose. Dry tannins perhaps just starting to take the upper hand.

Here's a delicious Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot blend from central Italy's Lazio. It's described by the winery as "a red wine with an intense ruby color and bold and persistent aromas that recall black fruits like blackberry and blueberry, accompanied by scents of spice and an elegant vanilla note, along with an austere one from bottle aging. The mouthfeel is balanced, persistent and quite elegant."

Dark fruit on the palate is backed by well-structured tannins, which suggest impressive longevity." (4/2013) 93 points James Suckling: "Raspberries, caramelized nuts, peppercorns and gravel.

2008 Campo alla Sughera Toscano Rosso

A big, broad shouldered wine, the 2008 captures the personality of the year in its cool, mineral-inflected flavors. Graphite, grilled herbs, smoke and melted road tar all blossom from the glass. The 2008 is big, rid and powerful, but also incredibly shut down at this stage. It will be interesting to see what further time in bottle brings, but the 2008 is compelling, even today.
