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 »

2007 Valdicava Brunello di Montalcino

98 points James Suckling: "What beautiful clear fruit here, with plums and spices and hints of flowers. Class. Full- bodied and luscious, this Brunello fills your mouth, with polished velvety tannins and gorgeous fruit. So wonderful and gorgeous. Irresistible. Better than 2006. Best after 2016." (1/2012) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2007 Brunello di Montalcino is gorgeous. Dark red cherries, plums, spices, leather and tobacco wrap around the palate as this dense, powerful wine starts to open up.

1999 Ciacci Piccolomini d'Aragona "Vigna di 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 »

A wonderfully crafted Valdicava along the same lines as the excellent 2004. Drink or hold." (11/2014) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Vincenzo Abbruzzese’s 2009 Brunello di Montalcino is a dense and full-bodied rendition that delivers an enormously floral bouquet of crushed rose petal and dried potpourri with background tones of cinnamon stick, root beer and caramelized brown sugar.

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.

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

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?"

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.

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.

2013 San Giusto a Rentennano "Percarlo" Toscana (Pre-Arrival)

98 points Vinous: "A wine of extraordinary finesse, the 2013 Percarlo is utterly magnificent. Creamy and beautifully layered in the glass, the 2013 speaks to finesse more than the power and explosiveness that is often found here. With time in the glass, the mid-palate fleshes out and the flavors gain in intensity and darkness. When young, Percarlo is often forbiddingly tannic, but the gradual move towards larger format barrels and casks has, among other things, given the wine much more textural elegance. I can't wait to see how it ages. This is one of the most complete and ...Read More »

96 points Vinous: "The 2013 Cepparello is superb. Polished, silky nuanced and exceptionally beautiful, the 2013 exudes freshness and energy from start to finish. 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.

One for the cellar. Best after 2008. (JS)" (4/2006) 94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Medium red. Highly perfumed aromas of musky red berries, dried flowers, sandalwood and gingerbread. Dense, seamless and superconcentrated, with sharply focused berry and mineral flavors intensified and lifted by ripe, perfectly integrated acids. This has fruit of steel and superb vinosity and grip.

(JS)" (12/2007) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2004 Barbaresco Rabaja is powerful and brooding. It possesses notable concentration and power, with plenty of spiced fruit, a rich, weighty texture, and a warm, engaging personality.

2011 Pian dell'Orino Brunello di Montalcino

93 points Vinous: "93+: The 2011 Brunello di Montalcino Vigneti del Versante offers lovely density and richness, but it also comes across as a bit monolithic and not totally put together just yet, an impression that is reinforced by a slight hint of reduction in the bouquet. With time in the glass, the sweet red cherry and plum fruit begins to emerge. Tobacco, rose petal and orange peel add the closing shades of nuance. Readers should plan on giving the 2011 at least a few years in bottle, which should allow the wine to settle down a bit. In 2011, all of the fruit went int ...Read More »

2004 Ciacci Piccolomini d'Aragona "Vigna di Pianrosso" Brunello di Montalcino

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The estate’s 2004 Brunello di Montalcino Pianrosso possesses striking depth as endless layers of sweet, perfumed fruit emerge with tons of grace. This, too, is an intense, full-bodied wine. The balance here is utterly exceptional, and the wine’s sheer plumpness makes for a highly rewarding glass of Brunello. Succulent dark cherries, spices, underbrush, minerals and new leather come to life as the wine sits in the glass, yet this remains a backward, structured Brunello in need of serious bottle age. The Pianrosso is a terrific effort from proprietor Paolo ...Read More »

2006 Siro Pacenti Brunello di Montalcino

He is one of the leaders of his generation in advocating modern viticulture and precision winemaking...I can't believe how the nose changes from white truffle to berry and black cherry and then goes blueberries and citrus fruits. Full and soft and velvety. It is layered and massive with so much going on. Now sweet tobacco and berries. A wine that is in evolution every moment."

2012 Fontodi "Flaccianello della Pieve" Toscana (Pre-Arrival)

97 points Vinous: "Tasted next to the 2012 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Vigna del Sorbo, the Flaccianello is richer, deeper and more flamboyant. 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. The greater influence of new French oak is also felt in the wine's texture. Still, that is splitting hairs, as the level here is high. Very high.

2004 Conterno Fantino "Mosconi" Barolo

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2004 Barolo Mosconi is the first release from this south-facing vineyard in Monforte, which the estate controls through a long-term lease. It is an impressively endowed, full-bodied Barolo with a multitude of tar, smoke, mocha, vanilla, mint and sweet dark fruit flavors that coat the palate with superb depth and persistence. As is usually the case with Barolos from this site, the wine is made in a distinctly powerful style that emphasizes fruit at the slight expense of aromatic complexity. That notwithstanding, it is a compelling Barolo. In 2004 the ...Read More »

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 »

(3/2016) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Like the Barolo Bussia Cicala, the 2012 Barolo Bussia Colonnello steps out with heavy footing. You feel the weight of the vintage, yet the bouquet shows fewer of those brilliant aromatic accents that are so magnificently delivered in cooler vintages.

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

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)

Better in 2021 but who can wait?" (1/2017) 94 points Vinous: "94+ Points: Black cherry, smoke, tar, licorice and menthol give the 2013 Barolo Terlo Vigna Costa Grimaldi much of its virile personality.

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.

Not the same depth of fruit of the 2004 or the 2006 for that matter, but it is clearly one of the best 2005’s in my opinion. I suggest another couple of years of cellar age. Great finesse, richness, and freshness for the vintage."

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.

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.

Crushed flowers, sweet red berries, mint and brisk saline notes wrap around the striking, deeply expressive finish.
