2010 San Filippo Brunello di Montalcino

97 points James Suckling: "Extremely complex aromas of mushroom, stone, chalk, dark fruit and lightly dried bark or tea. Full-bodied, with powerful, layered tannins. Muscular and intense. It needs loads of time to soften: better in 2017."

2008 Francesco Rinaldi "Le Brunate" Barolo

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Barolo Le Brunate is quite a bit richer, deeper and more powerful than the Cannubbio, as one might reasonably expect. Here the fruit boasts tons of pure resonance and stuffing while never losing its essential classicism. Plums, black cherries, leather, tar and licorice meld together, supported by firm yet beautifully integrated tannins. The 2008 Brunate is an explosive wine just waiting to emerge.

91 points Vinous: "The 2010 Valtellina Superiore Grumello Riserva Rocca del Piro is an excellent choice for drinking in the near and medium-term, as it has a little more mid-palate fleshiness than some of the other wines in the range. At the same time, the 2010 is also less aromatically expressive, while the acidity feels softer and more integrated with the fruit.

2012 Ciro Biondi Cisterna Fuori

"Nerello Cappuccio" and "Nerello Mascalese" ... a blend of two very Sicilian grape varietals. Together they are the mainstay of quality red wines from Sicily's east coast and have long been a popular choice for wines made under the Sicilia IGT title (now promoted to DOC status). The pair are in fact two mutations of a single variety, although the original archetypal Nerello is rarely referred to in ampelographic literature (or any other kind of literature for that matter).

1997 Argiano Brunello di Montalcino

96 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Deep garnet core with a ruby rim. Heady sottobosco aroma reminiscent of sweet pipe tobacco laced with the perfumed scent of violets. Deep plum flavor mingles with cherry jam, bitter chocolate and roasted coffee bean; very fresh and clear. The wine offers a superb sense of depth and harmony on the middle palate, and the tannins are firm but ripe. The long, silky finish is graced by an undercurrent of anise. Generous, suave, and delicious. (EB)" (8/2002) 93 points Wine Spectator: "Dark ruby, with hints of red on the edge. Blackberry aromas, with hints of fresh porcini and fresh meat. ...Read More »

2011 Donatella Cinelli Colombini Brunello di Montalcino

93 points James Suckling: "Pretty balance to this 2011 with a solid core of cherry and raspberry fruit. Firm and silky tannins. Rich and flavorful finish. Really excellent. Drink or hold." (2/2016) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The new year has started off with a bang for Donatella Cinelli Colombini. Her 2011 Brunello di Montalcino is an articulate and generous red that is endowed with thick layers of dark fruit, plum, cassis, sweet spice and moist chewing tobacco. This estate definitely presents a modern style of Brunello, but this expression shows less obvious oak compared to the wines made five years ago or m ...Read More »
