2006 Castello di Monsanto "Nemo" Cabernet Sauvignon

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2006 Nemo Vigneto Il Mulino (Cabernet Sauvignon) is a more overt, fruit-driven wine than Il Poggio in this vintage. Sweet scents of French oak meld into blackberries, blueberries, licorice and grilled herbs. The fruit remains extremely primary, while the oak is a touch prominent, both of which suggest further cellaring is needed for all of the elements to come together. A rich, textured, creamy finish provides the final exclamation point to this superb, pedigreed Nemo. This distinctly Tuscan Cabernet seems to get better and better with each passing v ...Read More »

2011 Ornellaia "Le Serre Nuove"

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A gorgeous wine, the 2011 Bolgheri Rosso Le Serre Nuovo dell-Ornellaia (57% Merlot, 17% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Petit Verdot and 12% Cabernet Franc) opens with an inky dark, almost impenetrable appearance and beautifully chiseled - but abundantly intense - aromas of blackberry, dried cherry, rum cake, leather, moist pipe tobacco and chewy black licorice. The balance and harmony are seductive and impressive and the wine lasts many long seconds on the palate. Noticeable tannic backbone gives us hope in its cellar potential. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025. ...Read More »

2012 Tenuta San Guido "Guidalberto" Toscana

93 points James Suckling: "Aromas of blackberry and blueberry, with hints of wet earth and spices such as cloves. Full body with round, chewy tannins but polished and caressing. A juicy, succulent finish. One of the best ever. Drink or hold." (10/2014)91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Guidalberto (Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot) impresses for the approachable, yet intriguing, delivery of fruit. The style is fruit-forward and ripe, yet the wine is not banal. There’s a fluidity to the bouquet that brings it to cherry and blackberry with soft tones of leather and tobacco woven deep within. The mouthfeel is vol ...Read More »

2011 La Massa "Giorgio Primo" Toscana Top Pick!
2011 La Massa "Giorgio Primo" Toscana

95 points James Suckling: "Captivating aromas of blueberries, raspberries, violets and orange peel. Full body with crazy tannins." (9/2013)94 points Antonio Galloni: "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." (9/2014)91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2011 Giorgio Primo is the latest edition of one of my favorite Tuscan blends. Cabernet S ...Read More »

2010 Antinori "Solaia" Toscana

98 points James Suckling: "A triumph for Solaia. It suggests the greatness of the legendary 1997 Solaia. This is a wine with very subtle and complex aromas and flavors with currants, licorice and raspberries. Wonderful nose. Full body, with ultra-fine tannins and a long, long finish. It lasts for minutes on the palate. Love this wine. The precision of the cabernet sauvignon comes through here. Better in 2016." (9/2013)97 points Antonio Galloni: "The 2010 Solaia is even better than the Tignanello. Here, too, it is the wine's energy and sheer vibrancy that stand out most. Blackberry jam, graphite, tar, espresso ...Read More »

2009 Dei "Sancta Catharina" Toscana

94 points James Suckling: "A wine with lovely ripe fruits such as strawberries and cherries with hints of new wood. Full and very velvety with a pretty balance between fruit, wood and acidity. Always excellent. Cabernet Sauvignon. Better in 2014." (8/2012)90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Sancta Catharina is 30% Sangiovese, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Syrah and 10% Petit Verdot, aged in French oak barrels. It is a decidedly powerful, structured wine bursting with blackberry jam, violets, menthol, licorice and French oak. (AG)" (6/2012)90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Dark ruby. Lovely aromas of blackcurrant, violet and aromatic herbs. Swee ...Read More »

2009 I Greppi "Amore" Toscana (Elsewhere $23)

90 points James Suckling: "Aromas of currants, spices and blueberries, with hints of mint. Full bodied, with soft and silky tannins and a flavorful aftertaste. Stylish. Best after 2013." (8/2011) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Amore is a juicy, vinous wine bursting with plums, black cherries, tar and spices ideally suited to near-term drinking. Amore is 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc aged in neutral oak. (AG)" (8/2011)

2008 Tenuta San Guido "Sassicaia" Toscana

97 points Wine Enthusiast: "**Cellar Selection** Recently implemented winemaker and cellar changes make this one of the best Sassicaias ever. This Cabernet Sauvignon-Cabernet Franc blend delivers thick concentration and sun-kissed aromas of black fruit, prune, dried bay leaf, black olive and tobacco. The thick, fertile soils that characterize the magical strip of coastal Tuscany at Bolgheri help shape amazing richness and intensity." (2/2012)96 points James Suckling: "Intense flavors of blackberries and flowers. Sexy and dressed up to go out. Full and velvety. Intense and juicy with velvety tannins and a long ...Read More »

2011 San Guido "Sassicaia" Bolgheri Top Pick!
2011 San Guido "Sassicaia" Bolgheri

94 points James Suckling: "Wonderful aromas of freshly sliced coastal rosemary and currants follow through to a full body, with integrated tannins and a fine finish. This shows so much finesse and beauty. But there is a solid backbone of tannins and length. Reminds me of some of the underrated Sass of the 1980s such as 1982, 1983 or 1987. Try after 2018." (5/2014)94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Aromas suggest blackberry, cedar and Mediterranean scrub. On the palate, notes of tobacco, licorice, exotic spice and cranberry accent the juicy black-cherry core. It’s well balanced and elegant, with silky tannins. Drink ...Read More »

2010 Sapaio Bolgheri Superiore

95 points James Suckling: "Aromas of blueberries and currants. Very bright and pretty. Full body with lovely tannins, a fine texture and a fresh finish. Pretty and refined. Best ever from here. A blend of 70 per cent cabernet sauvignon, 10 per cent cabernet franc and 10 per cent petit verdot. Better in 2015." (11/2013)93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2010 Bolgheri Superiore Sapaio is even darker with thick blackness at its rim. It's a brawny and thickly layered expression with dark blackberry, prune, tobacco, leather and crushed granite or dark mineral. Herbal flavors appear on the close and the tannins still ...Read More »

2011 Antinori "Solaia" Toscana Top Pick!
2011 Antinori "Solaia" Toscana

96 points Antonio Galloni: "Blackberry jam, cassis, grilled herbs and melted road tar meld together in the 2011 Solaia. Another super-exotic, racy 2011 from Antinori, Solaia is supremely beautiful. Mocha, espresso and sage are some of the many notes that add complexity. Hints of white truffle, lavender, smoke and licorice are laced into the exotic, racy finish. In 2011, Solaia has a dollop more of Cabernet Franc in the blend, added to give the wine a touch of freshness. Ripe and flashy to the core, the 2011 needs time to lose some of its youthful exuberance. At times, the 2011 coul ...Read More »

Bid on this bottle of 2008 Tenuta dell'Ornellaia "Ornellaia" Bolgheri Superiore (97JS, 97RP, 97WE, 93WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Ornellaia continues to blossom in the bottle. Dark cherries, chocolate, espresso, blackberries and mocha are just some of the many notes that explode from the glass. A rich tapestry of licorice, tar and camphor notes develop in the glass, adding considerable complexity. The 2008 is a huge, structured Ornellaia endowed with massive structure. It has come together beautifully since the early days when it was a tannic beast. Readers who can be patient will be rewarded with a spectacular bottle of wine. This is a fabulous showing. "

2007 Tenuta San Guido "Sassicaia" Bolgheri
Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2007 Tenuta San Guido "Sassicaia" Bolgheri (95RP, 95WE, 93JS, 93WS, 91ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2007 Sassicaia (Cabernet Sauvignon) explodes onto the palate with masses of rich, opulent fruit that caress the palate with gorgeous length and a seamless beauty that is hard to fully capture. Dark wild cherries, plums, spices, minerals and herbs develop in the glass. This is an especially bold, perhaps slightly uncharacteristic Sassicaia in its extroverted personality, but it is beautiful all the same. The inner perfume and sweetness carries through the long finish, where the sheer weight and glycerol of the fruit leaves a lasting impression. The 2007 is more than a worthy follow-up to the profound 2006. While it may lack that wine’s freshness, structure and potential longevity, the 2007 is immensely appealing today, and should drink beautifully pretty much out of the gate. That said, Sassicaia is always the most restrained of Bolgheri’s heavy hitt

2002 Tenuta San Guido "Sassicaia" Bolgheri

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Medium saturated ruby-red. Fresh aromas of blackcurrant, graphite, herbs and mocha. Intense flavors of minty blackberry and cedar, complicated by leather and minerals and a hint of tomato paste. This has filled out considerably with time in bottle and now shows less of the green edges that were apparent a few years ago. Another very good example of how lesser vintages of Sassicaia improve markedly with time; I probably underrated this wine in my initial evaluation. Though 2002 was a horrific, rain-plagued vintage, insiders know that it rained less i ...Read More »

2010 Montevetrano Colli Di Salerno (3L) (OWC)
Bid on this 3L-bottle lot of 2010 Montevetrano Colli Di Salerno (3L) (OWC - 96RP, 92WE, 91WS) in original wood. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2010 Montevetrano is flat-out gorgeous. Vibrant, floral aromatics lead to layers of beautifully delineated fruit in this finely sculpted chiseled Montevetrano. A wine of extraordinary beauty, the 2010 impresses for its clarity and nuance. I don’t think I have ever tasted a young Montevetrano with this much pure silkiness and finesse. There is a level of precision and delineation in the 2010 that is truly marvelous. I can’t wait to see how it ages. The 2010 is also notable for a much higher percentage of Aglianico (30%) than has been common in the past, while the international varieties are less prominent in the blend. In 2010 Montevetrano is 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Aglianico and 20% Merlot, which means the Cabernet Sauvignon now plays a much smaller role in the blend. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2030.

2010 Casanova di Neri "Pietradonice" Tuscany (Pre-Arrival, Elsewhere $65+)

92 points James Suckling: "The 2010 Pietradonice is beautiful in this vintage. A wine more of Montalcino than a true expression of Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2010 is delineated and vibrant from start to finish. Savory herbs lead to black plums, tobacco, mocha and crushed rocks on the firm, vibrant finish. I am not a huge fan of international varieties in Montalcino, but there is no question the Pietradonice is endowed with tons of vintage character, and 2010 is a superb vintage for this part of Tuscany in particular. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025. Giacomo Neri is brutally honest ...Read More »

2007 Castello dei Rampolla "Vigna d'Alceo" Toscana

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2007 d’Alceo shows none of the Sammarco’s early appeal. It is a dark, inward wine imbued with black fruit, roasted coffee beans, grilled herbs and licorice, all of which build effortlessly towards the huge, explosive finish. This exquisite d’Alceo will require significant patience. d’Alceo remains a model of the level French varieties can reach in Tuscany. In 2007 the blend is 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Petit Verdot. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2032. This is a stunning set of wines from Castello di Rampolla. The 2007s are some of the finest wines ...Read More »
