2013 Farnetella Chianti Colli Senesi

92 points James Suckling: "So much fruit and richness for this appellation. Medium to full body, round and velvety tannins and a dried fruit, spice and light oak aftertaste. Drink now. Extremely well done." (10/2015) 91 points Wine Spectator: "Dusty tannins keep a tight grip on the cherry, tobacco and earth notes in this rich red. Offers flashes of ripe fruit early before turning lean and firm. Be patient or match with food for now. Shows a more rustic side of Rancia. Best from 2018 through 2030. (BS)" (6/2016) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Chianti Colli Senesi delivers an easy approach and a very clean style. Some 200,000 bottles ...Read More »

2014 Sesta di Sopra Sangiovese Toscana Top Pick!
2014 Sesta di Sopra Sangiovese Toscana

Ettore Spina and his wife, Enrica Bandirola, owners of Sesta di Sopra, planted a new vineyard to Sangiovese in 2005. It has the same Galestro soils as the Brunello vineryard, perfect for taming Sangiovese's natural vigor. Unfortunately, in Montalcino all of the Brunello di Montalcino and Rosso di Montalcino vineyards are all registered and controlled, and they aren't allowing any more to be added right now, so the wine that comes from this new vineyard has to be designated an IGT (Indicates Geographic Tipicity). The wine is just bursting with ripe fruit.... Read More »

Drink or hold." (1/2015) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Campo di Marzo opens to smoky notes of ash and pencil shaving that segue slowly to dried cherry, savory spice and used leather. Give it a few minutes and the wine opens nicely to show blue flower, pressed violet and dark rose. The complexity on display is a pleasant surprise especially compared to the lackluster 2009 vintage.

2012 Fontodi "Flaccianello della Pieve" Toscana Top Pick!
2012 Fontodi "Flaccianello della Pieve" Toscana

97 points Vinous: "The 2012 Flaccianello della Pieve, a selection of the estate's best fruit, presents a darker, more virile expression of Sangiovese. Here, too, the purity of the flavors is truly striking. Cinnamon, cloves, new leather, licorice and plums are some of the notes that soar from the glass. The 2012 is full-bodied and voluptuous, in classic Flaccianello style, but the new French oak is much better integrated than it often is at this stage, the result of a move to lower toast levels over the last few years. This is one of the finest young Flaccianellos I can re ...Read More »

2010 Terre Nere Brunello di Montalcino "Campigli Vallone" Top Pick!
2010 Terre Nere Brunello di Montalcino "Campigli Vallone"

95 points James Suckling: "What an aroma to this red with so much dried-orange-peel and tangerine character. Flowers, too. Full body, fine, chewy tannins and a structured finish. Ashy texture. A contrasting, lively wine. This is tannic for the vintage and needs time to soften. Will come together wonderfully with three to four years of bottle age. Barrel sample." (1/2015) 90 points Vinous: "The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino is soft, open and approachable, with attractive scents of crushed flowers, tobacco, spice and juicy red cherries. (AG)" (2/2015) 90 points Wine Spectator: "This is harmonious, sporting ripe strawberry and cherry ...Read More »

2010 La Velona Brunello di Montalcino Riserva (Pre-Arrival)

93 points James Suckling: "Decadent and rich with a foie gras and dark fruit character on the nose and palate. Full body, soft and round. Savory fruit. Very long and intense. Drink or hold." (2/2016) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "La Velona's 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is a pretty and complete wine that does reveal its age. The alcohol is a bit high on this wine (recorded at 15%) and there are budding tertiary aromas of tobacco, savory spice, and cured meat. The core of the wine is well defined by dark fruit, blackberry and plum. There is freshness on the finish and the mouthfeel is moderate in length. B ...Read More »

2013 Villa Poggio Salvi Rosso di Montalcino

From the producer: "Rosso di Montalcino comes from the same Sangiovese Grosso grapes as the Brunello di Montalcino. This younger wine brings the consumer closer to the taste of Montalcino's wines and accompanies a large range of different foods. Its name is established during harvest and is already perfect after a 12 months maturation period in oak wood barrels."

2010 Bolsignano "Grazia" Brunello di Montalcino

95 points James Suckling: "Beautiful aromas of blackberries, spices and cedar follow through to a full body, fine tannins and a caressing finish. Drink or hold."

There’s lots of juicy Morello cherry and crushed raspberry on the palate, while notes of vanilla, savory herb, tobacco, licorice and a hint of salinity add depth. It’s well balanced with velvety tannins and bright acidity that give it both power and finesse. Drink 2018–2030." (5/2015)

2013 Uccelliera Rosso di Montalcino
