2012 Fontodi "Flaccianello della Pieve" Toscana Top Pick!
2012 Fontodi "Flaccianello della Pieve" Toscana

97 points Vinous: "The 2012 Flaccianello della Pieve, a selection of the estate's best fruit, presents a darker, more virile expression of Sangiovese. Here, too, the purity of the flavors is truly striking. Cinnamon, cloves, new leather, licorice and plums are some of the notes that soar from the glass. The 2012 is full-bodied and voluptuous, in classic Flaccianello style, but the new French oak is much better integrated than it often is at this stage, the result of a move to lower toast levels over the last few years. This is one of the finest young Flaccianellos I can re ...Read More »

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 »

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.

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 »

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.

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.

Dried cherry and candied citrus fruit. Fabulous finish. You want to drink this now. But shows superb finesse and intensity. Why wait?" (12/2014) 95 points Wine Spectator: "Saturated with cherry, raspberry, spice and tobacco aromas and flavors, this strikes a balanced between the supple texture, succulent acidity and refined yet gripping tannins.

1999 Fuligni Brunello di Montalcino

95 points Wine Enthusiast: "Anyone who loves great Sangiovese should snap up this star-quality wine. Always a personal favorite, the ’99 doesn’t disappoint. It’s lively and electric, with structure equal to the Tuscan fort in which it was tasted. As for flavors, look for overflowing blackberry, cola, mocha and more. A wine that can probably last for 15 years. (MS)" (6/2004) 95 points Wine Spectator: "Very fresh aromas of pressed flowers with hints of plums and raspberries.

The finish is incredibly long, giving a lasting impression of sweet fruit. Be patient. Best from 2019 through 2035.-B.S" (3/2016) 94 points James Suckling: "Complete and complex Brunello with plum, floral and dried meat aromas and flavors.

1999 Ciacci Piccolomini d'Aragona "Pianrosso" Brunello di Montalcino

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1999 Brunello di Montalcino Vigna di Pianrosso is a dark, viscous wine that swirls around the inside of the glass with evident weight and heft. The bouquet is similarly stacked tall with thick renditions of teriyaki sauce, soya, barbecue smoke, crushed granite and chopped herb. Vigna di Pianrosso delivers the proverbial iron first in a velvet glove thanks to its lively, streamlined mouthfeel. Bright acidity keeps the wine on its toes. Decant three hours or more prior to serving. Drink: 2014-2026. (ML)" (2/2014) 93 points Wine & Spirits: "No tasting note given." (10/2004) 91 points Wine Spectator: "Very tigh ...Read More »

2007 Giuseppe Quintarelli Rosso Cà del Merlo

Praise for the winemaker from Wine Advocate: "Giuseppe Quintarelli's passing earlier this year left a huge void in the wine world that isn't likely to ever be filled. Veneto is a fascinating region with tons of untapped potential, yet only one or two other producers have managed to make hypnotic, life-changing wines such as those that are found in these tiny cramped cellars in Negrar. At their best, Quintarelli's wines had no equal. I only hope the estate continues the tradition of making these idiosyncratic, compelling wines." (02/2011) 55% Corvina and ... Read More »

2011 Produttori del Barbaresco "Ovello" Barbaresco Riserva 1.5L (Pre-Arrival)

94 points Vinous: "The 2011 Barbaresco Riserva Ovello, from one of the coolest zones in Barbaresco, is superb. 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. Don't miss it! (AG)" (12/2015) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "his vineyard site seems to have absorbed much of the summer heat.

A full-bodied, energetic red from the Chianti Classico region of Panzano. Needs two to three years of bottle age. A blend of Sangivoese, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Alicante." (8/2015) 93 points Vinous: "A dark, sumptuous beauty, the 2013 La Massa opens with superb depth and textural richness.

2012 Elio Grasso "Gavarini Chiniera" Barolo (Pre-Arrival)

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 »

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. (AG)" (3/2016) 94 points James Suckling: "Aromas of flowers, strawberry and dried sage come through. ...Read More »

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.

(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.

Firm and intense. Better in 2018." (1/2015) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Capanna's 2010 Brunello di Montalcino shows some of the ripest fruit I have tasted in this vintage. There are aspects of the bouquet that taste downright jammy with overtones of strawberry and blackcurrant. The wine's concentration is dense, dark and brooding.

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."

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.
