2010 Il Poggione Brunello di Montalcino (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
2010 Il Poggione Brunello di Montalcino (Pre-Arrival)

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino is a striking wine that shows uncompromising varietal pureness, albeit in a most concentrated and elaborate form. This is what great Sangiovese is all about. There's so much happening on the nose and the wine brings you to cherry, spice, licorice, cured meat, pressed rose and grilled meat in equal measure. No one element overpowers the next. The mouthfeel is also tight and bright with the kind of fruit intensity that promises long cellar aging. This Brunello is only at the beginning of a long road ahead. The longer the win ...Read More »

2010 Mastrojanni Brunello di Montalcino

98 points James Suckling: "What a tightly knit wine this is with so much fabulous character of dried meat, orange peel, berry and spice. Dried and dusty earth too. Full body, sweet fruit character and ripe tannins but loads of structure and intensity. Structurally intense and dry at the finish. It goes on for minutes. Best ever. Better in 2018." (12/2014)97 points Antonio Galloni: "The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino is gorgeous. Vibrant and alive in the glass, the 2010 is impeccable in its balance.

2012 Marisa Cuomo "Furore Bianco Fiorduva" Costa d'Amalfi

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Costa d'Amalfi Furore Bianco Fiorduva is a blend of 40% Ripoli, 30% Fenile and 30% Ginestra that sees six months in wood. This is a dense and full-bodied white wine that would pair with creamy shrimp risotto or spicy crab cakes. The wine shows power and determination (at 13.5% alcohol) with fragrant and thick layers of exotic fruit, pineapple, creamy butter and sweet almond paste. The overall effect is round and opulent. The 2012 vintage was a hot one and this wine feels bolder and bigger as a result. Marisa Cuomo is one of the most important na ...Read More »

So much going on here. Gorgeous." (12/2014)95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Caparzo's 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Vigna la Casa opens to dark intensity with blackish-garnet undertones.

Fascinating flavors of spice, citrus and meat. Loads of fruit. From biodynamically grown grapes. Better in 2016." (12/2014)96 points Wine Spectator: "Mint and eucalyptus aromas give way to dried cherry and soy flavors in this firmly tannic Brunello. Sweetness and acidity drive the long finish of fruit, spice and mineral. Should be a great bottle in time. Best from 2019 through 2036."

2010 Pecchenino "Le Coste" Barolo

96 points Antonio Galloni: "Another dazzling wine, the 2010 Barolo Le Coste races across the palate with bright red cherry, plum, spice, hard candy, mint and rose petal overtones. The Le Coste is a bit more primary, perfumed, sweet and pliant-especially through the mid-palate than the San Giuseppe. Sinewy, powerful and tannic, the Le Coste is what traditionally made Barolo is all about. The 2010 spent three years in cask."

First, it hits the nose with a wonderful medley of ripe, dark fruit, spice, tar, tobacco, leather and dried herbs. The wine is impeccably made and the quality of fruit is outstanding.

2010 Banfi "Poggio alle Mura" Brunello di Montalcino (Pre-Arrival)

2010 Uccelliera Brunello di Montalcino

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Andrea Cortonesi's 2010 Brunello di Montalcino struts its stuff from the very start. This is a Brunello of profound beauty, intensity and complexity. At this young stage in the wine's life you get a generous dose of primary fruit focused on cherry and blackberry. You also get so-called secondary aromas from the oak that recall spice, cinnamon and dark smoke. These lead to the promise of beautiful tertiary aromas as the wine continues its slow evolution over the course of time. This wine is like a long-distance runner who explodes from the starting line a ...Read More »

2008 Francesco Rinaldi "Le Brunate" Barolo

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Barolo Le Brunate is quite a bit richer, deeper and more powerful than the Cannubbio, as one might reasonably expect. 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. When it does, it should be striking. Actually, it already is. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2038. (AG)" (10/2012) Jancis Robinson: "Barolo - La Morra. Mid ruby with broad or ...Read More »

This wine definitely leaves a lasting impression and speaks in high volumes for the 2010 vintage.

Racy and bright." (3/2015)90 points Antonio Galloni: "The 2010 Barbaresco Pora is sweet, layered and perfumed in the glass, with hints of hard candy, wild flowers, sweet and mint. This is an unusually sweet, almost candied wine for the year, perhaps because of the slightly greater influence of French oak tonneaux. There is good immediacy here, but the Pora doesn't reach the level of the best wines here. The rationale f ...Read More »

2010 Fattoria dei Barbi "Vigna del Fiore" Brunello di Montalcino

94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Barbi's 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Vigna del Fiore emerges from a parcel in Castelnuovo dell'Abate near Mastrojanni. Dark, powerful and intense, the Vigna del Fiore blossoms in the glass with notable intensity and breadth. Dark cherry, plum, lavender, Mediterranean herbs and smoke flow through to the textured, broad finish. Stylistically, the Vigna del Fiore is a bit richer and sweet through the mid-palate and finish than the straight Brunello bottling." (2/2015)93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Vigna del Fiore shows a saturated garnet hue and ruby highlig ...Read More »

2012 Cantina Terlan "Gries" Lagrein 1.5L

This comes from a small suburb of Bolzano called Gries, where the alluvial soils are perfectly suited to Lagrein--a native grape that has been grown in the region since at least 1379. The fruit is manually harvested, slowly fermented in stainless and finished in mostly large wooden barrels (70%) and barriques (one-third new). Always a favorite, this cool climate red is ink-dark and packed with lifted dark berry fruit, fine tannins and exotic spice. It's particularly delicious with game, offal and aged cheeses.

2011 La Massa "Carla 6" Toscana

94 points James Suckling: "This red shows pretty blueberries, lightly toasted oak and meat. Full body with soft and round tannins and a fruity, blueberry finish. A new pure Sangiovese from Giampaolo Motta of La Masa. Stylish. And in a Burgundy bottle. Try this in three or four years to soften." (6/2014)92 points Wine Spectator: "Hints of vanilla, caramel and Bourbon mark this well-oaked red. Bright black cherry and plum flavors form the core, showing concentration and a grainy texture. Still compact and monolithic, yet long. Needs time to integrate. Sangiovese. Best from 2016 through 2013 — B.S." (8/2014)

2007 Sapaio Bolgheri Superiore

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* This is a lovely, rich wine with mature red berry tones followed by sharp mineral definition and bright aromas of fresh Indian spice. The wine is dense and decadent and could stand up to beef tenderloin with balsamic reduction." (12/2010)92 points James Suckling: "Currants, minerals and spices here. Subtle and stylish. Full and super silky. Round and rich. I really like the texture and depth of fruit. Drink now or hold." (6/2013)92 points Wine Spectator: "There's loads of currant and spices on the nose and palate, with fresh herbs. Full and velvety, with toasty oak and refined tannins. Need ...Read More »
