It is deeply redolent of dark berry, black cherry, spice, leather and tobacco. The wine's sunny personality never feels flat or too dense.

97 points James Suckling: "Complex aromas of blackberry, stones, cracked black pepper and tar. Full body with soft, round tannins and a juicy, fruity finish. Soulful and refined from this estate. This is a magical wine from Southern Italy." (2/2014) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "From a hot vintage, the 2011 Roccamonfina Terra di Lavoro is a soft, round wine with a large presence of dark cherry fruit and blackberry. This wine has broader shoulders compared to 2010 and 2012. Dark fruit, prune, plum and dried cherry lift heavily from the bouquet. Those more obvious aromas are followed by ethereal touches of ash, li ...Read More »

2013 Sottimano "Cotta" Barbaresco (Pre-Arrival)

94 points Vinous: "As always, the 2013 Barbaresco Cottà is a wine of amplitude and breadth. Sweet dark cherry, pomegranate, mint, spices and leather meld together effortlessly. The Cottà has a bit less delineation and nuance than some of the other wines in the range, but more immediacy and mid-palate juiciness. As the years have passed, so many wines in this lineup have improved, but the Cottà has remained pretty much static, for better or worse. (AG)" (12/2015) 93 points James Suckling: "A tannic young wine with backbone and structure. Medium body, berry and walnut character and a chewy finish. Needs ...Read More »

2013 Ciro Biondi "Cisterna Fuori" Etna Rosso

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Made with 80% Nerello Mascalese and 20% Nerello Cappuccio, this opens with enticing scents of fragrant blue flower, new leather, dark-skinned berry and aromatic herb.

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). The two varieties often grow side-by-side (they are BFFs after all...), most commo... Read More »

2014 Fattoria del Cerro "Manero" Rosso di Toscana 3.0L

90 points James Suckling: "Lots of nice fresh fruit with strawberry and lemon aromas and flavors. Medium to light body. Clean finish. Drink now" (7/2016) K&L Notes: This blend of Sangiovese and Merlot is concentrated and sexy, with intense notes of forest berries, baking spice, and vanilla. It's deep and round, a perfect match for aged cheeses and roasted meats.
