2013 Antinori "Tignanello" Toscana Top Pick!
2013 Antinori "Tignanello" Toscana

97 points James Suckling: "This is amazing on the nose with blackberry, black truffle, dried cherry and hints of tobacco. So complex on the nose. Almost no need to taste it. Full body, soft and velvety tannins, and a persistent, fabulous finish. The mouthfeel is magic." (3/2016) 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Tignanello represents the beginning of a new chapter for Italy's ultimate game-changer wine. The blend remains 80% Sangiovese with 15% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc but Renzo Cotarella tells me "stylistically-speaking, this is what we wanted to achieve." The winemaking formula remains the ...Read More »

2013 Antinori "Guado al Tasso" Bolgheri Superiore

97 points James Suckling: "This is a very sleek and racy wine with lots of stone, white pepper and fresh rosemary character. Then takes off with dried ripe fruits such as currants and blueberries. Dark chocolate too. This a real mouthful yet remains agile and powerful. Linear and long finish. Great precision. Best ever from Guado al Tasso?" (7/2016) 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This is a fantastic wine. The 2013 Bolgheri Superiore Guado Al Tasso reveals soaring aromas of dark fruit, plum, blackberry, savory spice, tobacco and leather. The results are seamless, harmonious and generous in intensity.

2013 Fontodi "Flaccianello della Pieve" Toscana (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
2013 Fontodi "Flaccianello della Pieve" Toscana (Pre-Arrival)

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Flaccianello della Pieve is a commanding wine and a strong protagonist of both the vintage and its territory. Connoisseurs of Sangiovese will be hard pressed to find a wine more authentic, elegant, complex and pristine than this. I am a huge fan of the 2013 vintage in Chianti Classico and the Flaccianello della Pieva is one big reason for this love affair. The bouquet is gorgeous and delineated with wild berry, tangy spice, crushed mineral and forest flower. Yet, the wine's color is dark, brooding and austere. The wine offers exuberance and ener ...Read More »

Very structured for the vintage." (11/2016) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Valdicava represents its own school within the greater Brunello philosophy.

2010 Mastrojanni "Vigna Loreto" Brunello di Montalcino

Better in 2017." (12/2014) 96 points Vinous: "Iron, smoke, savory herbs, graphite and tobacco lift from the 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Vigna Loreto.

Some balsamic and citrus fruit underneath it all. Needs a little time to soften. Pure Sangiovese. From organically grown grapes." (9/2014) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2011 Flaccianello della Pieve is 100% Sangiovese aged 24 months in new French oak and two months in large oak cask.

The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is an impressive effort and a wine that sports a masculine and muscular personality. The nose is redolent of dark fruit, wild berry, died cherry, leather and tobacco. All those components come together in seamless fashion.

2015 Miani Sauvignon Zitelle Cava Colli Orientali del Friuli (Pre-Arrival)

92 points Vinous: "The 2015 Sauvignon Zitelle Cava shows the richer, more voluptuous side of this site. Ripe apricot, peach, orange peel, spice, mint and lightly honeyed notes give the 2015 its voluptuous, racy personality. Open-knit and supremely inviting, with no hard edges whatsoever, the 2015 is a gorgeous wine to drink now and over the next handful of years. The Zitelle Cava emerges from a small plot within Zitelle where the soils are especially poor and cause the plants to struggle, which also produces almost unusually rich fruit. (AG)" (3/2017)

2011 Pian dell'Orino Brunello di Montalcino

Praise from the Wine Advocate on the producer's 2011 vintage: "Caroline Pobitzer and Jan Hendrik Erbach have released an explosive set of new wines from their glorious biodynamic estate located one ridge over from Biondi-Santi's Il Greppo. I was absolutely blown away by the precision and the quality of these wines, and the Bassolino di Sopra is one of the finest wines I have ever tasted in Tuscany.

Expressive savory and floral notes open up in a lifted Serralunga Barolo endowed with superb underlying depth and textural richness. Ample, layered and beautifully expressive through to the finish, the 2004 is just as impressive today as it was from barrel. The 2004 spent two years in French oak barrels, 20% new.

2015 Miani Sauvignon Zitelle Alte Colli Orientali del Friuli (Pre-Arrival)

93 points Vinous: "The 2015 Sauvignon Zitelle is a terrific introduction to the Miani house style. The Zitelle possesses lovely varietal aromatics and layers of intense fruit, but with a bit less overall intensity in all of its components than some of the bigger whites in this range. The more medium-bodied style makes for a Miani white that can be enjoyed pretty much upon release, whereas some of the other 2015 whites need time in bottle to be at their best. (AG)" (3/2017)

2012 Felsina "Rancia" Chianti Classico Riserva 1.5L

94 points Vinous: "94+: A ripe, powerful wine, the 2012 Chianti Classico Riserva Rancia offers a level of finesse that balances some of the more overt intensity of the year. Dark cherry, plum, spice, tobacco, menthol and licorice add shades of nuance as this beautifully delineated Rancia opens up in the glass. Because of its mid-weight structure, I expect the 2012 will give up its charms relatively early by Rancia standards, which means around age 15-20. The 2012 is not an obvious or explosive Rancia, rather is a wine built on compelling overall harmony." (9/2015) 94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Full-bodie ...Read More »

1995 Dal Forno Romano Valpolicella Superiore

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1995 Valpolicella is an amazing effort, with an opaque dark ruby color, as well as an explosive nose of smoke, earth, jammy berry and blackberry fruit, great richness and purity, full body, and abundant glycerin and intensity. Remarkably, there is little evidence of new oak, even though the wine spent 36 months in barrel before being bottled without filtration. It tips the scales at a whopping 14.5% alcohol, high for Valpolicella. It should drink well for 10-15 years. (RP)" (8/2000) 90 points Wine Spectator: "Amazing Valpo. Aristocratic.

2013 Castello di Fonterutoli "Siepi" Toscana

Full body, and very compacted. Toned and muscular tannins. Racy finish with bright acidity. Fascinating to taste (drink) now but this will be even better in 2019 and onwards." (5/2016) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Siepi is a knockout wine that hits all the senses with just the right level of complexity.

Loads going on in this one. Give it three to five years. Or more." (1/2011) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino flows with gorgeous layers of dark red fruit. This is one of the more muscular, virile wines of the vintage.

In the mouth, the wine tastes dense, concentrated and opulent. This is a real crowd pleaser." (4/2011) 93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good full medium red. Aromas of plum, redcurrant, coffee, mocha and oak. Broad, silky, sweet and seamless, but today a strong spine of acidity gives it a rather backward impression.

Succulent red cherry, plum, lavender and rose petal are some of the signatures. Aging in French oak shapes the wine nicely without marking it excessively. The purity of the flavors is striking. This is an especially cool, savory Cepparello built on finesse and persistence rather than power. Rain during harvest robbed the wine of some of its breadth. Otherwise, this is a striking Cepparello.

2009 Dal Forno Romano Valpolicella Superiore

92 points Vinous: "Black cherries, plums, graphite, tapenade, melted road tar and game hits the palate as Romano Dal Forno's 2009 Valpolicella Superiore shows off its personality. The 2009 brings together the signature richness of a wine made from 100% dried fruit with distinctly wild, almost Syrah-like overtones. Inky and intense, with considerable tannic backbone, the 2009 is really more of a junior Amarone than a Valpolicella.

Typical Sangiovese notes of red cherries, tobacco and underbrush dominate the flavor profile of this intensely flavored Tignanello that manages to be ripe and open, while retaining notable balance and freshness, although the tannins dry out a bit on the back end.

Super-ripe red stone fruit, smoke, licorice and dark spices meld together in a deep, powerful wine. The 2012 is impressive, but personally I prefer the finesse and freshness of the Sorbo.

2004 Montepeloso "Gabbro" Toscana (Previously $115)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The estate’s 2004 Gabbro (Cabernet Sauvignon) possesses captivating aromatics along with deeply expressive layers of dark cherries, melted road tar, minerals, chocolate, cassis and licorice, with outstanding length on the palate and superb overall balance. Made in an opulent, super-ripe style, its persistent minerality balances a note of sweetness on the finish. (AG)" (2/2007)
