2010 Isole e Olena "Cepparello" Toscana

96 points Vinous: "Isole e Olena's 2010 Cepparello is magnificent. In particular, I admire the way the wine fleshes out in all directions, with seemingly endless layers of dark, mineral-infused berry, plum and pomegranate notes. A primal wine in need of significant cellaring, the 2010 is easily one of the highlights of the year. Bright, saline notes support the precise finish. Today, the 2010 is naturally quite backward and undeveloped, but it should be a gem in another 5-10 years. This is an especially dark, structured Cepparello built for the cellar. The 2010 brightens u ...Read More »

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 »

Then smooth and sweet in the mouth, but with terrific energy keeping the red fruit and tobacco flavors fresh and primary. Sweeter and more elegant in style than the 2009, but this fine-grained, firmly tannic wine really shut down in the glass. Outstanding potential here."

2013 Sottimano "Cottá" Barbaresco

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.

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 »

2012 Cortonesi "Poggiarelli" Brunello di Montalcino (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
2012 Cortonesi "Poggiarelli" Brunello di Montalcino (Pre-Arrival)

95 points James Suckling: "Aromas of blueberries, blackberries and dark Indian tea follow through to a full body, chewy and powerful tannins and a long and flavorful finish. Generous and structured.

The mouthfeel shows mid-weight consistency ...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.

2008 Produttori del Barbaresco "Pora" Riserva (Pre-Arrival)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Playing true to type, the 2008 Barbaresco Riserva Pora is another of the more open wines in this vintage. But that is only in relative terms. Layers of expressive red fruit, crushed flowers and spices flesh out in this radiant Barbaresco. In most vintages the Pora is one of the more accessible of the Riservas when young. The close proximity of the vineyard to the Tanaro River results in a warm microclimate that ripens the fruit earlier than elsewhere. In 2008, though, the Pora packs a serious punch. The coolness of the late harvest comes through in a fin ...Read More »
