2006 Mastroberardino "Radici" Taurasi Riserva

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2006 Taurasi Radici hits the palate with masses of blueberries, black berries, flowers and spices. The 2006 is a big, explosive wine in need of considerable cellaring. That said, it is remarkably accessible for a young Taurasi from this historic property. Layers of fruit continue to build towards the exotic, concentrated finish. This is a marvelous wine in the making. The 2006 spent two years in a combination of casks and smaller French oak barrels.

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

2010 ArPePe "Rocca del Piro" Grumello Riserva Valtellina Superiore

91 points Vinous: "The 2010 Valtellina Superiore Grumello Riserva Rocca del Piro is an excellent choice for drinking in the near and medium-term, as it has a little more mid-palate fleshiness than some of the other wines in the range. At the same time, the 2010 is also less aromatically expressive, while the acidity feels softer and more integrated with the fruit. Sweet red cherry, cherry pit, smoke, dried herbs, tobacco and anise are some of the many notes that meld into the pliant finish.

The flavors are bright, precise and very nicely sculpted in this mid-weight Lessona from Sperino, yet there is plenty of depth in the fruit to balance out the tannins.

2012 Ca' del Baio "Asili" Barbaresco

92 points James Suckling: "Aromas of cherry, dried apple and hints of cedar. Full body, firm tannins and a fresh finish. Hints of walnut skin and wet earth. Solid and attractive. Drink or hold." (10/2015) 90 points Vinous: "Ca' del Baio's 2012 Barbaresco Asili is sweet, open-knit and seductive; in other words classic Asili. Tobacco, crushed flowers, mint and red-fleshed fruits all blossom in the glass. Medium in body and lithe on the palate, the 2012 gives the impression of being a wine to drink sooner rather than later, as it appears to lack a measure of depth and complexity. Given the prime quality ...Read More »

2010 Riecine "La Gioia" Toscana

La Gioia is 100% Sangiovese from biodynamically farmed and modest-yielding 40 year old vines. The wine is aged in a combination of new and second-use French oak for 3 years before bottling. The resulting wine displays a dark and rich spectrum of Sangiovese with power and excellent potential longevity.

1997 Castello Banfi "Excelsus" Sant'Antimo

93 points James Suckling: "This Super Tuscan red shows a pretty concentration. Pleasing aromas of blackberries, currants and mint. Full-bodied with refined tannins. Ripe fruit and liquorice character, with plums and earth. Long finish." (6/2013) 93 points Wine Spectator: "Goes off the concentration meter. Black color. Wonderful aromas of mint, currants and blackberries. Full body. Big velvety tannins. It goes on and on, with licorice and ripe fruit character." (10/2000)

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. The luminous, elegant palate delivers juicy red cherry, baking spice, anise and mineral wrapped in an almost weightless structure. Drink through 2023. (KO)" (9/2016)

2009 Antoniolo "Osso San Grato" Gattinara

94 points Vinous: "The 2009 Gattinara Osso San Grato is a bit more classically austere than the San Francesco, as it usually is at this stage. Sweet red berries, iron, pine, mint, wild flowers and crushed rocks all take shape in the glass. The 2009 is going to be superb, but it needs time for some of the tannin to soften. A translucent, highly expressive finish rounds things out in style. Osso San Grato remains one of the great under the radar jewels of Italian wine. 94+ Points (AG)" (3/2014)

2009 Casanova di Neri "Pietradonice" Toscana

95 points James Suckling: "This pure Cabernet Sauvignon shows fabulous depth and richness. Currants, berries, sweet tobacco, and lead pencil aromas and flavors, it's long and invigorating to taste. The tannins are wonderfully integrated." (12/2012) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Pietradonice (Cabernet Sauvignon) comes across as sumptuous and super-intense. Dark black cherries, blackberry jam, graphite and grilled herbs all take shape in the glass as this intense, full-bodied Cabernet shows what is possible with the grape in Montalcino. The style is very much on the opulent side, but it works. As outstand ...Read More »

2013 Einaudi "Cannubi" Barolo (Pre-Arrival)

94 points James Suckling: "Aromas of cream, light toffee, mushrooms and plums follow through to a full body, silky tannins and a fresh and clean finish. Very tannic yet the tannins are ripe and polished. Try in 2021." (1/2017)

2011 Sottimano "Cotta" Barbaresco (Pre-Arrival)

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 »
