2010 Poggio Antico Brunello di Montalcino (Pre-Arrival)

97 points James Suckling: "A beautifully balanced and subtle Brunello with plum, berry, spice and fresh mahogany character. Full to medium body, fine tannins and a long finish. Very intense and harmonious. This is always a beauty. Drink or hold." (12/2014)94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Underbrush, red berry, tilled soil, pressed flower and a balsamic note are some of the aromas offered by this radiant red. The bright palate delivers crunchy wild cherry, baking spice and savory herb alongside assertive but refined tannins. It’s well balanced with fresh acidity. Drink 2018–2028." (5/2015)

Incredible. A selection of the best grapes from this small estate. Drink or hold."

2010 Il Poggione Brunello di Montalcino (Pre-Arrival)

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino is a striking wine that shows uncompromising varietal pureness, albeit in a most concentrated and elaborate form. This is what great Sangiovese is all about. There's so much happening on the nose and the wine brings you to cherry, spice, licorice, cured meat, pressed rose and grilled meat in equal measure. No one element overpowers the next. The mouthfeel is also tight and bright with the kind of fruit intensity that promises long cellar aging. This Brunello is only at the beginning of a long road ahead. The longer the win ...Read More »

2010 Uccelliera Brunello di Montalcino (Pre-Arrival)

94 points James Suckling: "A red with lots of dried berry, dried tomato and mineral character on the nose. Full body very chewy and structured. A dense and chewy wine that needs time to soften. Big and powerful. Better in 2017." (1/2015)92 points Antonio Galloni: "Smoke, tobacco, cedar and roasted coffee beans wrap around a core of juicy dark cherries and plums in the 2010 Brunello di Montalcino. There is plenty of depth in the glass, but, as is often the case here, three years in oak yields a wine with slightly oxidative overtones. Powerful, incisive tannins support the finish.

Fascinating flavors of spice, citrus and meat. Loads of fruit. From biodynamically grown grapes. Better in 2016." (12/2014)96 points Wine Spectator: "Mint and eucalyptus aromas give way to dried cherry and soy flavors in this firmly tannic Brunello.

2010 Pecchenino "Le Coste" Barolo

96 points Antonio Galloni: "Another dazzling wine, the 2010 Barolo Le Coste races across the palate with bright red cherry, plum, spice, hard candy, mint and rose petal overtones. The Le Coste is a bit more primary, perfumed, sweet and pliant-especially through the mid-palate than the San Giuseppe. Sinewy, powerful and tannic, the Le Coste is what traditionally made Barolo is all about. The 2010 spent three years in cask."

2010 Domenico Clerico "Pajana" Barolo (Previously $85)

Then smooth and sweet in the mouth, but with terrific energy keeping the red fruit and tobacco flavors fresh and primary. Sweeter and more elegant in style than the 2009, but this fine-grained, firmly tannic wine really shut down in the glass. Outstanding potential here."

(2/2014)90 points Wine Enthusiast: "This Brunello opens with a floral and fruit fragrance of red rose, wisteria and berry.

The wine is elegant and ethereal with dark, spicy concentration and loads of pulpy fruit, licorice, ginger, cola and leather. Open this bottle in ten years or so."

It needs loads of time to soften: better in 2017." (1/2015)93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino is a dense and voluptuous expression with opulent fruit tones and equally intense oak nuances. The wine ages in botte grande for 26 months and the slow oxidation has done much to increase the aromatic intensity of the wine. Bold and chewy with thick lines, this wine also shows tight wood astringency that sho ...Read More »

They morph and transform into something new and unexpected with each swirl of the glass.

If you haven’t heard about these indigenous white varieties before, don’t worry about it, neither have most people!...Marisa Cuomo is another Campanian producer making drop-dead gorgeous wines.

Black cherry, tar, incense, smoke and licorice notes all take shape as this big, broad-shouldered wine shows off its personality. Another year or two in bottle should help the 2006 come together even more fully, but it is likely to remain a fairly powerful, hulking Amarone. Still, there is a lot to look forward to here."

(1/2015)94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino is a gorgeous expression that will appeal to those who adore the softer and spicier side of Sangiovese. Bold cherry and blackberry stand to immediate attention with secondary aromas of tobacco, cedar and cinnamon in quick succession. The wine delivers more in terms of boldness and power than it does complexity but th ...Read More »

2004 Talenti "Pian di Conte" Brunello di Montalcino Riserva

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2004 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Vigna Pian di Conte is a rich, sumptuous wine graced with layers of rich fruit and an expansive, seductive personality. There is tremendous elegance and class in this nuanced Brunello that is at times powerful, while at others more delicate. The fruit remains open, which gives an impression of early accessibility, but there appears to be plenty of structure underneath. A lovely sense of inner perfume caresses the palate all the way through to the long, polished finish. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2024. (AG)" (4/2010) ...Read More »

1999 Castello Banfi Brunello di Montalcino

92 points Wine Spectator: "Decadent, earthy and opulent, with jam and spice on the nose. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a long, soft finish. There's wonderful density and beautiful fruit. So ready.—'99 Brunello blind retrospective (2009). Drink now. (Web-2010)"91 points Wine Enthusiast: "Rich, dark and muscular, with deep, jammy aromas of plum and blackberry.

(6/2004)90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Impressive saturated ruby, extremely dark for Brunello. Brooding aromas of ...Read More »

2009 Tassi "Franci" Brunello di Montalcino (Previously $90)

93 points James Suckling: "A wine with blueberry and chocolate character. Medium body with hints of orange peel and cocoa. Lot of dried strawberries too. A small Brunello production with soul. Top cuvée. Drink or hold." (2/2014)90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good full red. Sexy aromas of ripe raspberry, sweet spices, tobacco and quinine, plus mineral and truffle nuances. Fresh and vibrant on the palate, with a strong spine of acids and tannins nicely supporting the wine's underlying rich, ripe red-fruit sweetness. Finishes with excellent length and balance."

2008 Cascina Val del Prete "Roero"

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Roero emerges from the glass with sweet dark cherries, flowers, mint and spices. It boasts impeccable freshness and focus in an understated, highly polished, attractive style. Menthol, licorice and spices add considerable complexity on the close. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2023. (AG)" (10/2011) Wine Enthusiast: "This Nebbiolo definitely opens with playful hints of over-ripeness with strawberry, blackberry and Indian spice. That added softness and extra pulp really helps to balance out the variety’s natural astringency." (9/2011)

2007 Silvio Grasso Barolo "Bricco Luciani"

The wine is full bodied, with chocolate, vanilla and blackberry character with vanilla bean undertones. Long and intense. Fascinating young wine that deserves to be in your cellar." (7/2011)94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2007 Barolo Bricco Luciani is one of the most beautiful wines I have tasted here in quite some time.

2000 Seghesio Barolo "La Villa"

92 points Wine Spectator. K&L's notes - From the fantastic 2000 vintage in Barolo, awarded 100 points from Wine Spectator, this is another winner from brothers Aldo and Riccardo Seghesio from their ten hectares in the La Villa cru superbly situated in the Castelletto subzone. This 2000 is concentrated, big and muscular with pure nebbiolo aromas and velvety texture, with hints of violet, spice and balsamic nuances. Aging occurs in a combination of small French barriques and larger tonneaux for two years, followed by an additional year in bottle. (Greg St.... Read More »
