2010 Tassi "Franci" Brunello di Montalcino (Previously $110) Top Pick!
2010 Tassi "Franci" Brunello di Montalcino (Previously $110)

95 points James Suckling: "What a wine with salty, savory, light milk chocolate and iron character. It's full body, super integrated tannins and a long, long finish. It just makes you jump to attention. So lively and gorgeous. Drink or hold." (1/2015) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tassi's 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Franci opens to medium body and savory tones of Indian spice, dried fruit, licorice and dark cola. The balsam herb intensity is very attractive. This wine veers toward the ethereal and away from the obvious fruit and berry tones you get with less sophisticated Sangiovese. In fact, this is a wine that ...Read More »

2010 Livio Sassetti "Pertimali" Brunello di Montalcino Riserva

96 points James Suckling: "Extremely perfumed with rose petal, blueberry, fresh mushroom and plum character. Full body, super silky tannins and a dried, slightly raisiny finish, but this is delicious and luscious. Fruit cake center palate. Immediate impact here. Drink or hold." (10/2015) 95 points Wine Enthusiast: "Here's a soulful red with earthy aromas wet soil, underbrush, ripe, violet, berry, leather and a funky whiff of game. The palate presents juicy wild cherry, crushed black raspberry, white pepper, cinnamon and grilled herb alongside firm, refined tannins and bright acidity. A tobacco note closes the ...Read More »

2010 Castiglion del Bosco Brunello di Montalcino (1.5L)

96 points James Suckling: "Fabulous aromas of oranges, peaches and mahogany follow through to a full body with rich, chewy tannins and a long, flavorful finish. This is dense, tight, powerful, compressed and incredibly structured. Needs four to five years of bottle age to come out of its dormancy." (1/2015) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino is a ripe and fruit-forward expression that bursts with energy and red fruit intensity even at this young stage in the wine's life. Thick layers of cherry, blackberry, cassis, vanilla and cinnamon give the wine a bold, opulent personality. The tann ...Read More »

2010 Sesta di Sopra Brunello di Montalcino Riserva (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
2010 Sesta di Sopra Brunello di Montalcino Riserva (Pre-Arrival)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Sesta di Sopra is another winery in Montalcino that delivers a powerful and well balanced wine in this important vintage. 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. The wine shows medium density in terms of mouthfeel but very long persistence. This is a wine of immense inner class and elegance."

2011 Casanova di Neri "Tenuta Nuova" Brunello di Montalcino

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This is another fabulous wine from Giacomo Neri. The 2011 Brunello di Montalcino Tenuta Nuova is a deeply layered expression with bold tones of dark fruit that are softened and enhanced by spice, leather, tobacco and balsam herb. The wine is very beautiful and polished with slightly less depth and complexity compared the outstanding (100 point) vintage that precedes it. Despite the vintage variation, this is a wine of enormous pedigree and importance. It is generous and confident with a presentation that offers purity, intensity and persistence.

2011 Villa Poggio Salvi "Pomona" Brunello di Montalcino

92 points James Suckling: "A fresh and fruity red with dried cherry, lemon aromas and flavors. Crisp and clean for the vintage. Very well done. Drink now." (10/2015) 90 points Wine Spectator: "Harmonious and elegant, this red exhibits cherry, strawberry, leather, tobacco and mineral flavors, allied to a firm structure. Pure and focused, with a lingering finish. Best from 2017 through 2027. (BS)" (6/2016) K&L Notes: 95 points International Wine Report: 02/2016 The ‘Pomona’ Brunello is an absolutely striking effort in 2011, impressive for its remarkable purity and elegant style.

2012 E. Pira Chiara Boschis "Cannubi" Barolo (Pre-Arrival)

97 points James Suckling: "Pure roses on the nose. Raspberry and lemon rind. So pure. Full body, ultra-fine tannins, powerful yet so ethereal and soul-touching. A fabulously crafted Cannubi. Better in 2020." (3/2016) 95 points Vinous: "A great example of site, the 2012 Barolo Cannubi is deep, sensual and beautifully perfumed. The aromatics and pure, creamy texture of Cannubi comes through loud and clear. The Cannubi is a wine of pure texture and voluptuousness, qualities that it shows as layers of fruit blossom in all directions.

2011 Altesino "Montosoli" Brunello di Montalcino

94 points James Suckling: "A very ripe style with prune, berry and salted-nut aromas and flavors. Full body, savory intensity and a long, flavorful finish. Lots of juicy, fabulous fruit. Shows the greatness of the vineyard." (10/2015) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2011 Brunello di Montalcino Montosoli provides us with one of the most beautiful tastes of Brunello in 2011. The secret here is that fruit is sourced from the Montosoli cru in the northern side of the appellation that performed very nicely in this warm vintage. The wine reaches excellent balance between power and elegance. It leaves a statement but ...Read More »

2006 Il Poggione "Vigna Paganelli" Brunello di Montalcino Riserva New!
2006 Il Poggione "Vigna Paganelli" Brunello di Montalcino Riserva

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Vigna Paganelli is huge, powerful and totally implosive. The seductive allure of the 2007 is nowhere to be found. Instead, the 2006 is built on a serious spine of formidable tannin and dark red/black fruit. Hints of tar, licorice, rose petals and tobacco inform the powerful, virile finish. The 2006 is going to require considerable patience, but it is clearly a jewel of a wine, even at this early stage.

2011 Siro Pacenti "Vecchie Vigne" Brunello di Montalcino

97 points James Suckling: "A very muscular red with plum, blueberry, walnut and dried mushroom character on both the nose and palate. Full and chewy. Fabulous fruit and intensity. Amazing quality for the vintage. Wow. Better in 2017." (10/2015) 95 points Vinous: "The 2011 Brunello di Montalcino Vecchie Vigne is deep, powerful and explosive. The gravitas of the old vines and the blend of fruit that incorporates fruit from the southern end of the zone in equal parts with the north comes through loud and clear. Macerated cherries, smoke, spices, leather, licorice and French oak flesh out in a dense, styl ...Read More »

2011 Rivella Barbaresco "Montestefano"

93 points Vinous: "93+: The 2011 Barbaresco Montestefano presents more depth and darkness than the straight Barbaresco, but the two wines aren't that different, which is common in warmer vintages that tend to flatten out vineyard differences. Part of this fruit was fermented in French oak barrels that confer added depth, volume and tannin, none of which Montestefano lacks, in my view. As such, the 2011 could use a few years in bottle to fully come together. It is deeply impressive today, though. That much is obvious. Hints of sage, smoke, lavender and dried flowers add nua ...Read More »

2012 Elio Grasso "Ginestra Casa Maté" Barolo

96 points Vinous: "Dark, rich, and enveloping, the 2012 Barolo Ginestra Casa Matè wraps around the palate with serious intensity. The flavors are deep and boldly sketched throughout. Plum, black cherries, menthol, licorice and cloves build to the voluptuous, explosive finish. The Barolo Ginestra Vigna Casa Matè is another wine that is going to require considerable time in bottle, but it is fabulous, even at this very early stage. The Casa Matè is one of the most vivid, dramatic Barolos of the vintage.

2012 Elio Grasso "Gavarini Chiniera" Barolo

96 points Vinous: "The 2012 Barolo Gavarini Chiniera is one of the most beautiful, precise wines of the vintage. Finely cut and chiseled, the Gavarini exudes energy and tension, both signatures of this high-altitude, Monforte site. Crushed flowers, dark red berries, mint, and crushed rocks are some of the signatures. So many 2012s are open-knit, but Grasso's Gavarini is going to need at least several years in barrel. If anything, the 2012 is a bit austere, but I say that in the best sense of the word. Exotic, alluring and totally stunning, the 2012 is a real knock-out. (AG ...Read More »

2011 La Massa "Giorgio Primo" Toscana (Elsewhere $100)

95 points James Suckling: "Captivating aromas of blueberries, raspberries, violets and orange peel. Full body with crazy tannins." (9/2013) 94 points Vinous: "The 2011 Giorgio Primo is just as beautiful today as it was last year, even if it has barely budged since then. Blackberry jam, spices, licorice, smoke and new leather meld together in a seamless voluptuous wine endowed with superb depth and pure textural richness. The oak still needs time to integrate, but there is a lot to look forward to here.

2008 Stella di Campalto Brunello di Montalcino

93 points Vinous: "One day, I would like to put Stella di Campalto's 2008 Brunello di Montalcino in a blind tasting with a handful of top-notch Burgundies and see how many people can pick this wine out. Sweet crushed flowers, savory herbs and cherries all waft from the glass. There is an ethereal, lifted, intensely perfumed quality to the 2008 that reminds me of Louis-Michel Liger-Belair's wines. The 2008 isn't a blockbuster, but it is very pretty. (AG)" (9/2013) 92 points Wine & Spirits: "Delicate color and light floral scents indicate the elegant style of Stella di Campalto’s 2008 Brunello.

2011 Isole e Olena "Collezione Privata" Cabernet Sauvignon Toscana

96 points Vinous: "96+ points. The 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Collezione Privata is superb. Black cherry jam, crème de cassis, smoke, plums, menthol, licorice and violets form a stunning backdrop as the 2011 opens up in the glass. Sumptuous and layered yet also quite fresh (especially for the year), the 2011 possesses superb balance and exceptional finesse. The intensity of the fruit nearly buries the tannins, but they are there. My impression is that the 2011 will offer a long and wide window of pure drinking pleasure.

This is full and super long with an incredible persistence of flavor, think minerals and spice. Still has a lot to offer in the future. Should be fabulous after 2015." (4/2012) 95 points Wine Spectator: "Very pretty aromas of sweet strawberry pie, with hints of plum and flowers. Full-bodied, with polished yet chewy tannins and bright acidity. A big, juicy wine. A Barolo for the cellar.

Very sweet, dense and fresh on the palate, with blackberry jam, ripe plum, chocolate, mint and vanilla in evidence. Generously structured and quite opulent, with ripe polished tannins and a cassis-laden finish of great warmth and persistence. Succulent and compelling; a great wine."

1997 Azelia "San Rocco" Barolo

Tar and rose petals (classic scents of ripe Nebbiolo) also emerge. Once past the terrific aromatics, the wine is full-bodied, rich, and supple, with an expansive texture, sweet tannin, low acidity, and gobs of fat as well as extract. This alluring Barolo is best drunk over the next 12-15 years. (RP)" (6/2001) 92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Full red.

2008 Mastrojanni "Schiena d'Asino" Brunello di Montalcino

It opens with earthy notes of black berries, tilled soil, underbrush, leather, tobacco and prune. The succulent palate reveals juicy wild cherry and black raspberry energized by notes of white pepper, licorice and thyme. Still young and tannic, it should develop beautifully. Drink 2015–2028." (5/2014) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "From one of Montalcino’s most celebrated single-vineyards, the 2008 Brunello di Montalcino Vigna Schiena d’Asino (“donkey’s back”) comes from a one-hectare hillside crest that runs ...Read More »

2009 Dal Forno Romano Valpolicella Classico 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. Readers will want to give this super-expressive wine another few years in the cellar, but there is a lot to like, even today. (AG)" (7/2015) 91 points Wine Spectator: "A dens ...Read More »

Here it is the wine's precision and energy - both hard to come by in 2011 - that really stand out. Pine, mint, chalk, bright red berries, blood orange and white pepper are some of the signatures in a brilliant, finely-cut Barbaresco that captures the best of both the vintage and this site.

A big, broad shouldered wine, the 2008 captures the personality of the year in its cool, mineral-inflected flavors. Graphite, grilled herbs, smoke and melted road tar all blossom from the glass. The 2008 is big, rid and powerful, but also incredibly shut down at this stage. It will be interesting to see what further time in bottle brings, but the 2008 is compelling, even today.

Very silky and tightly packed. Fine wine. Give it air and enjoy." (7/2004) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2000 Barolo Bussia Vigna Fiurin is from a plot with a more western-facing exposure, which contributes to some of the spiced, balsamic notes that take shape in the glass.
