2013 Schiavenza "Prapò" Barolo

97 points Wine Spectator: "An aromatic style of Barolo, laced with cherry, plum, leather and cigar aromas and flavors. There is plenty of sweet fruit, flesh and a dense matrix of tannins, echoing tobacco notes and picking up a mineral edge on the long aftertaste. Very complex and fresh. (BS)" (11/2017) 96 points Wine Enthusiast: "Underbrush, saddle leather, dark berry and culinary spice aromas slowly unfold in the glass. Succulent and full bodied, the firmly structured palate delivers raspberry compote, ripe Marasca cherry, baking spice and pipe tobacco framed in youthfully assertive but noble tannins and brig ...Read More »

2012 Salicutti "Piaggione" Brunello di Montalcino

95 points Vinous: "Good deep red. Captivating aromas of red fruits, coffee, mocha, violet, minerals and sweet spices. Very rich, dense and creamy, but with excellent lift, focus and energy giving shape and grip to the raspberry, red cherry, botanical herb and mineral flavors. This is a step up in concentration and depth compared to the majority of the 2012 Brunellos. Finishes with fine tannins and superb length. An outstanding vintage in the making for Salicutti.

2013 Petrolo Galatrona (Pre-Arrival, Elsewhere $85)

2013 Francesco Rinaldi "Brunate" Barolo (Pre-Arrival)

95 points Vinous: "A dark, powerful Barolo, 2013 Brunate is another wine that is built for the cellar. The brooding, mysterious side of Brunate comes through in a dense, muscular Barolo built on structure and acidity. Traditionally leaning palates will adore the 2013 Brunate. A host of balsamic-inflected notes lead into the firm, unyielding finish, adding to the wine's gravitas and seriousness. This is an especially somber, powerful wine, even by Brunate standards.

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This wine is now identified by a single vineyard designation but was once the estate's annata Brunello. The 2011 Brunello di Montalcino Vigneti del Versante (with vines planted in 1997) shows some signs of the vintage heat, but really only in terms of textural roundness and general softness.

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Made in limited numbers, the 2012 Brunello di Montalcino Filo di Seta is a commanding wine. With just 4,000 bottles produced, it reflects the extreme power and depth that can be achieved at this cooler Montalcino microclimate. The 2012 vintage was hot and dry, thus creating ideal growing conditions for Castello Romitorio's fruit. Vineyards here are panted on steep slopes and surrounded by thick forest and vegetation. In fact, you can't help but notice a wild and brambly element to this wine that recalls forest floor, truffle and autumnal leaf. These pret ...Read More »

Not that readers should be too concerned with drinking these wines young in the first place though. Firm tannins enshroud a core of expressive fruit in a Barolo that is going to need time to fully emerge. Even so, the Cannubi is super-impressive today. (AG)" (10/2017)

There is plenty of the power that is so typical of this site, but at the same time, the 2013 is translucent, super-elegant and refined.

The not so good news, if I can say that, is that the 2013 is likely to require a number of years before it can be truly appreciated, much less enjoyed.

A blend of Sangiovese, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache, Petit Verdot, and Syrah." (12/2012) 93 points Vinous: "The estate's 2009 Caiarossa is a typical wine from this part of Tuscany. Here the aromas and flavors are quite dark, powerful and brooding.

2011 Sottimano "Cottá" Barbaresco

94 points Vinous: "An overachiever in this vintage, the 2011 Barbaresco Cottà is one of the most refined wines I have tasted from this site, where the wines are usually much more overt and powerful in style. Sweet floral and spice notes meld into a core of dark red and black hued stone fruits, tobacco, smoke and new leather. The characteristic pliant, juicy Cottà fruit is there, but it is complemented by expressive floral overtones. There is a pure immediacy to the Cottà that is impossible to miss. (AG)" (10/2014) 92 points Wine Spectator: "Rich and fleshy, exhibiting flavors of plum and black cherry, ...Read More »

2013 E. Pira Chiara Boschis "Via Nuova" Barolo

96 points Vinous: "The 2013 Barolo Via Nuova is the most tannic and explosive of these three Barolos. The flavors are dark, powerful and intense throughout.

Even so, the purity of the flavors and textures is compelling. (AG)" (2/2017) 95 points James Suckling: "This is all about fruit defined by a purity and clarity that I really appreciate. Full body, a deep, and dense palate and a long and flavorful finish. Needs ...Read More »

2008 Produttori del Barbaresco "Rio Sordo" Riserva (Pre-Arrival)

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Made by what is one of Italy's best co-operative cellars, this riserva from the legendary Rio Sordo vineyard offers intense under - brush aromas of truffle, pine forest, leather and balsam ic notes. The palate has a core of juicy black cherries layered with cinnamon-spice and shows plenty of depth. Drink this after 2018 to let it develop more complexity." (8/2013) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A picture perfect example of site, the 2008 Barbaresco Riserva Rio Sordo is classic Rio Sordo. Medium in body, it possesses a sweet, open bouquet and a relatively medium-bodied personality next t ...Read More »
