2013 Casanova di Neri Brunello di Montalcino

94 points Vinous: "Luminous deep red. Captivating aromas of sweet red berries, cinnamon, violet and licorice. Then also very fruity in the mouth; refined, juicy red plum and raspberry flavors linger brightly on the fresh back end. Has a delightful red fruit cocktail quality that makes it practically impossible to put the glass back down. And though it is simply bursting at the seams with early appeal, this truly lovely Brunello will also age well. Unless my memory fails me, this may well be the best entry-level wine from Casanova di Neri that I have ever tasted. (ID) ...Read More »

Try in 2020." (11/2016) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This special vineyard site is located in the southeastern quadrant of the appellation known for more opulent and structured wines. The 2012 Brunello di Montalcino Poggiarelli lives up to this billing. The bouquet bursts open with immediate intensity. Bold cherry, blackberry, spice, clove and black truffle rise to the top.

2013 Produttori del Barbaresco "Ovello" Barbaresco Riserva (Pre-Arrival)

96 points Vinous: "The Produttori's 2013 Barbaresco Riserva Ovello is all power, tension and nerve. Even so, the 2013 is remarkably civilized and much less austere than young Ovello Barbarescos usually are. Scents of cranberry, white pepper and mint give the wine its signature high-toned aromatics. The Ovello has a Volnay-like purity to its fruit, with Nebbiolo tannins and structure, of course. If that sounds appealing, well, it is. Vivid, sculpted and impossibly beautiful, the Ovello is simply magnificent. (AG)" (10/2017) 95 points Wine Spectator: "This red starts out with bright cherry, strawberry, ...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. Beams of searing tannin and vibrant, pointed acidity wrap around the virile, imposing finish. Readers will have to be patient with the 2013, as it is likely to be slow to mature in bottle. 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.

2010 ArPePe "Sassella - Stella Retica" Valtellina Superiore Riserva

92 points Vinous: "Crushed rose petals, mint, sweet tobacco, game, red cherry and cranberry lift from the glass in the 2010 Valtellina Superiore Sassella Riserva Stella Retica. Bright and salivating, with lively acidity laced throughout, the 2010 is an absolutely joyous wine to drink now and over the next decade. The 2010 is 100% Chiavennasca (Nebbiolo) that was given a relatively short ten days of maceration in oak vats followed by two years in cask and cement.

2010 Palari Faro Sicilia

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "From a very good vintage in Sicilian winemaking, the 2010 Faro Palari is an elegant and classic expression. This wine is more floral than the other vintages I've tasted and it shows more exotic flavors of Indian spice, cardamom and lightly crushed clove. There's a slightly soapy aroma of lavender flower or rose potpourri. The wine most definitely underlines that Salvatore Geraci trademark signature. It's a wine of light lines and deep finesse with delicate berry aromas that are intertwined with spice, dried flowers and licorice. The 2010 vintage taste ve ...Read More »

This is a return to the great Solengos of the mid-1990s. The best since 1997. Cabernet sauvignon 50%, petit verdot 30%, merlot 15% and sangiovese 5%. Drinkable now but better in 2020."

2013 Giovanni Manzone "Bricat" Barolo

Dark, powerful and brooding, but also very much medium-bodied in structure, the 2013 is wonderfully complete and full of allure. There is plenty of tannin, but the wine is impeccably balanced from start to finish. The darker and more muscular side of Gramolere comes through very nicely. There is so much to like, but the 2013 also shuts down quickly in the glass, which suggests it is likely to require a good few years in bottle to fully come together.

If you haven’t heard about these indigenous white varieties before, don’t worry about it, neither have most people!...Marisa Cuomo is another Campanian producer making drop-dead gorgeous wines.

Ripe red cherry, pipe tobacco, mint, dried rose petal, orange peel and anise are some of the endless nuances that seem to develop in the glass. The 2013 is a wine of depth, pedigree and class.
