2008 Francesco Rinaldi "Le Brunate" Barolo

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.

This wine awards a high pleasure quota with the proverbial opulence and hedonistic plumpness that is not easy to achieve with the austere Nebbiolo grape. The Liste vineyard delivers the natural characteristics that are appropriate for dark and shapely wines. Thick extraction is followed by dark fruit, pressed blackberry, exotic spice, cola and balsam herb. It ages for two years in oak and two years in bottle, but it needs more time to lose its baby fat.

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Still tight, young and nervous, the 2010 Barolo Bussia Sergio Barale is aged in large oak casks like Barale’s other top Barolo expression. That slow oxidative process, combined with the extraordinary quality of the 2010 vintage has produced a classic Barolo that will endure in time and promises a long evolution ahead. In general, fruit from the Bussia cru tends to be more robust and structured as evidenced here. The wine’s garnet appearance is vibrant and bright and the finish boasts energy and verve.

Dark, powerful and intense, the Vigna del Fiore blossoms in the glass with notable intensity and breadth.

Black cherry, tar, incense, smoke and licorice notes all take shape as this big, broad-shouldered wine shows off its personality. Another year or two in bottle should help the 2006 come together even more fully, but it is likely to remain a fairly powerful, hulking Amarone. Still, there is a lot to look forward to here."

Veins of underlying salinity are woven into grassy, herbal notes in a chiseled, varietally expressive Sauvignon. I would prefer to drink the 2013 on the younger side given its mid-weight structure."

Expressive aromatic overtones add lift and precision to a core of pliant, racy fruit in a Barolo that captures the best qualities of the vintage while retaining plenty of poise.

(3/2014) 92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Aromas of dark berry, menthol, crushed violet, mint and pipe tobacco open this elegant expression of Nebbiolo. The palate offers black cherry, ripe raspberry, ...Read More »

2011 Schiavenza "Bricco Cerretta" Barolo

92 points Wine Spectator: "The berry flavors are offset by savory juniper, underbrush and tobacco notes, as well as dusty tannins underneath. Presents a firm, gripping finish. Best from 2019 through 2030.—B.S." (11/2015) K&L Notes: From the importer: "In Serralunga d’Alba, in the heart of the Langhe, the Azienda Agricola Schiavenza has been working since 1956.

2004 Villa Poggio Salvi Brunello di Montalcino Riserva

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "Poggio Salvi’s Brunello Riserva offers genuine and linear fruit tones with bright berry and cherry layers lavished over spice and leather. The wine is tonic and tight in the mouth with lingering notes of spice and smoke on the close." (8/2010) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2004 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is surprisingly hard and unyielding. Mentholated, balsamic notes add complexity to the dark fruit, followed by earthiness, leather; licorice and tobacco that emerge over time. There is nice depth and plushness to the fruit, but readers will need to be patient. (AG)" (4/2010)

2010 La Fiorita Brunello di Montalcino (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
2010 La Fiorita Brunello di Montalcino (Pre-Arrival)

95 points Wine Spectator: "Offers terrific aromas of strawberry, currant and medicinal herbs, revealing hints of anise, tobacco and earth, all backed by a firm, vibrant structure. Stays focused and long, with a succulent finish. Best from 2019 through 2036." (6/2015) 92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Aromas of wild berry, savory herb, menthol and toast lead the nose. The vibrant palate delivers crunchy red cherry, eucalyptus, sage and cooking spice alongside youthfully assertive tannins and brisk acidity. It closes on a licorice note. Drink 2020–2030."

2010 Il Valentiano Brunello di Montalcino "Campo di Marzo" 1.5L

92 points James Suckling: "A rich and earthy red with orange peel and plum character. Full body and tangy with lots of jammy flavors. It becomes bright and fresh with air. Thoroughly delicious. Drink or hold." (12/2014) 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.

2009 Travaglini Gattinara Riserva

94 points James Suckling: "Wonderful aromas of dried roses, walnuts, mushrooms and ripe fruits. Full body with firm, silky tannins and a tangy finish. This is solid, tight and condensed. Very silky texture. Drink or hold." (10/2015) 94 points Vinous: "The 2009 Gattinara Riserva is a wine for the exceedingly patient. Huge swaths of tannin cut across a huge core of fruit in a Gattinara endowed with serious depth, resonance and intensity. Dark red cherry, orange rind, cloves, mint and saddle leather meld together in an exotic fabric of enticing aromas and flavors. Don't be fooled, though, the tannins are ...Read More »

2009 Casanova di Neri "Tenuta Nuova" Brunello di Montalcino

93 points James Suckling: "A wine with ripe blueberry and cherry character, and a smoky undertone. Mineral, too. Full body with chewy tannins and a fresh finish. Excellent for the vintage. Better in 2015." (2/2014) 93 points Vinous: "Vivid red. Multidimensional nose offers captivating aromas of raspberry, sour red cherry, redcurrant, brown sugar, cinnamon and minerals, lifted by a strong note of fresh citrus fruit. Vibrant flavors of red and black fruits, pink peppercorn and sweet spices are wonderfully pure and juicy. This sneakily concentrated yet refined wine shows a rare blend of power and delicac ...Read More »

2001 Talenti Brunello di Montalcino

92 points Wine Enthusiast. K&L's notes: 3 Stars! Broad and rich in the mouth were my first impressions of this wine. It gives me the impression of a very warm fall day, late afternoon, sitting outside under an umbrella, my skin is feeling the glow from being out in the sun earlier in the day. Languidly laying on a chaise lounge, drinking a beer and eating freshly cut prosciutto and melon. Muscles feeling the days work and they throb with the satisfaction of hard, physical labor. This wine has a sweet fat belly, yet its muscles are powerful, and the wine ... Read More »

2013 Ornellaia "Le Serre Nuove" Bolgheri (Pre-Arrival)

94 points James Suckling: "Wonderful depth of fruit to this wine with blackcurrants, spices, mints and flowers. Full body, firm and silk tannins and a fresh finish. Tight and polished red. This needs another three of four years to come together but shows style and beauty. Superb second wine from Ornellaia." (8/2015) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "I have always been a big fan of this wine. The 2013 Bolgheri Rosso Le Serre Nuove is a generous blend of Merlot (32%), Cabernet Sauvignon (36%), Cabernet Franc (20%) and Petit Verdot (12%). The wine presents an intensely drinkable style with soft fruit nuances of cherry, ...Read More »

2006 ArPePe Sassella Riserva Stella Retica Valtellina Sup

Jancis Robinson: "From 50-year-old vines at 550 m, picked late and the wine is given extended maceration. Very pale brick red. Wonderfully subtle bouquet with real delicacy, something tarry, sun on rocks, and a hint of orange peel. I wonder when this was put on the market? It certainly seems well ready but with delightful transparency. Real freshness here." (4/2014) K&L Notes: Established in 1984 for Arturo Pelizzatti Perego, and now run by Arturo's children Isabella, Emanuele and Guido, ArPePe makes rare wines that are a point of reference for the unique Valtellina terroir, where th...

2011 San Giusto a Rentennano "La Ricolma" Toscana

95 points Vinous: "Another gorgeous wine, the 2011 La Ricolma wraps around the palate with fabulous depth and richness. Dark red and black-toned fruit, cloves, menthol, spices and licorice meld together in a supple, radiant wine endowed with notable depth and nuance. Lavender, jasmine and a host of floral notes add gorgeous perfume on the finish. Of all the San Giusto wines, Ricolma seems to get the least attention, but it can be superb, as it is again in 2011." (9/2014) 94 points Wine Spectator: "A cool reserve lends a fresh feel to the pure cherry and blackberry flavors in this dense red. Taut, focu ...Read More »
