2008 Bisceglia Aglianico del Vulture "Gudarrà" Top Pick!
2008 Bisceglia Aglianico del Vulture "Gudarrà"

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Bisceglia’s 2008 Aglianico del Vulture Gudarra is one of the very best wines readers will find in this price range. Layers of expressive dark fruit cover every inch of the palate in a vivid, textured Aglianico that impresses from start to finish. Hints of mocha, grilled herbs and rosemary add complexity over time. The dazzling, racy Gudarra is best enjoyed over the next few years. It is another superb value. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2018. (AG)" (2/2013) Wine Enthusiast: "This is a generous and powerful expression of Aglianico, with angular edges, tight tannins and a lasti ...Read More »

2008 Il Valentiano Brunello di Montalcino Riserva

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva feels like a wine made from a whole other producer and a different environment when compared to the estate’s 2009 Brunello Campo Marzo. While that wine is thin and fraught, this Riserva on the other hand, is bountiful and generous especially where the use of oak is concerned. Some 48 months in barrel adds cinnamon and vanilla over dark cherry and blackberry. It is meant for near-term consumption. Drink: 2014-2021. (ML)" (2/2014)

2008 Tassi "Franci" Brunello di Montalcino Riserva (Previously $120)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Franci lays on good foundations despite the overall austerity of the 2008 vintage. True to the Riserva moniker, there’s an extra dose of intensity here, a riper style, bright acidity at the back and an added layer of firmness or astringency to the tannins. Even the alcohol feels slightly warmer in the 2008 Riserva compaired to the two 2009 Brunellos although it is not (14% compared to 14.5% for the two 2009 wines). In summary, this wine does exactly with Brnello Riserva should do: It brings you a little bit more of ...Read More »

2008 Antonelli Sagrantino di Montefalco

92 points James Suckling: "Another wonderful red, with ripe, chewy but silky-textured tannins and a long, flavorful finish. Ripe dark fruits, walnuts and flowers. It shows a wonderful balance for the appellation. Drink or hold." (2/2014)90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Montefalco Sagrantino is a massive wine with dark spice aromas, ripe fruit, prune, tar leather and tobacco. The aromas transport you somewhere exotic, like a spice marker in the Middle East. Gritty tannins show some coarseness on the close. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2022. 90+ (ML)" (8/2013) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good deep ruby-red. Subdued nose opens slowly with ...Read More »

2008 Elio Grasso "Runcot" Barolo Riserva

99 points James Suckling: "This is an absolutely fabulous red, with incredible concentration but polish and refinement. It’s full-bodied, with wonderful depth of fruit and length. Complex, with minerals, dark fruits, plums and currants. Speechless. It sends chills up my spine. What a wine. It goes on for minutes. Hard to believe that it’s better than the 2007, but it is. Better in 2020 but so amazing now. Available in February 2015." (9/2014)95 points Antonio Galloni: "The 2008 Barolo Riserva Runcot is a drop-dead gorgeous beauty. Smoke, tar, licorice, menthol, plums and spices form a tapestry of undeniable c ...Read More »

2008 Musella Amarone della Valpolicella

Wine Enthusiast: "The bouquet offers a wide array of aromatic details that still need time to integrate. Notes of spice, black fruit, cola, ginger, licorice and sweet chewing tobacco are all recognizable. A pungent note of dried apple skin makes for a lively finish." (11/2012) Wine Spectator: "An herb- and spice-driven red, with grainy tannins and juicy acidity framing well-knit flavors of date, sun-dried black cherry, bouillon cube and smoke. Drink now through 2018. (Web-2013)"

2008 Francesco Rinaldi "Le Brunate" Barolo

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Barolo Le Brunate is quite a bit richer, deeper and more powerful than the Cannubbio, as one might reasonably expect. Here the fruit boasts tons of pure resonance and stuffing while never losing its essential classicism. Plums, black cherries, leather, tar and licorice meld together, supported by firm yet beautifully integrated tannins. The 2008 Brunate is an explosive wine just waiting to emerge. When it does, it should be striking. Actually, it already is. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2038. (AG)" (10/2012) Jancis Robinson: "Barolo - La Morra. Mid ruby with broad or ...Read More »

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)

2008 Sesta di Sopra Brunello di Montalcino

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Sesta di Sopra’s 2008 Brunello di Montalcino is rather closed in its aromatics, but is more expressive on the palate, where layers of dark red fruit come alive. Smoke, tar, licorice, scorched earth and smoke add an attractive element of gravitas on the finish. Deceptively medium in body, the 2008, nevertheless, packs a serious punch. The long, superbly delineated finish bodes well for the future, but the 2008 needs time in bottle to settle down a bit more. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2026." (6/2013)91 points Wine Enthusiast: "Dark cherry, leather, tobacco and spicy aromas of cured me ...Read More » 



2008 Felsina "Rancia" Chianti Classico Riserva

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "93+ points. The 2008 Chianti Classico Riserva Rancia is one of the more slender wines in this line up, in keeping with the personality of the vintage. That is not a bad thing for readers who are cellaring some of the bigger, richer vintages that may take longer to mature. Silky tannins frame a core of black cherries, plums, licorice and tobacco through to the vibrant finish. The 2008 speaks of textural finesse and silkiness first and foremost. I will not be surprised if the 2008 blossoms further with more time in bottle. Today it is immensely beautiful. ...Read More »

2008 Caprili Brunello di Montalcino

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Caprili's 2008 Brunello di Montalcino is endowed with serious depth. Juicy and expressive, the 2008 offers up plums, black cherries, tobacco, smoke and licorice nuances. The balance of fruit, tannin and acidity is simply terrific. I imagine the 2008 will be even better in another year or two, but it is already pretty delicious. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2023." (6/2013)91 points Wine Enthusiast: "If you like extra brawn in your Brunello, this wine is for you. It opens with a dark color and thick aromas of cassis, leather, spice and tobacco that hint at the power to come. The mouthfe ...Read More »

2008 Casanova di Neri "Tenuta Nuova" Brunello di Montalcino (Pre-Arrival, Elsewhere $65+)

94 points James Suckling: "This is very floral with blackberries on the nose. It's full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a ripe fruit, caramel and berry aftertaste. Delicious for the vintage. One of the wines of the vintage. Better in 2015." (2/2013)94 points Wine Spectator: "The sawdust and graphite aromas turn to cherry and raspberry flavors in this vibrant, complex red. A beam of sweet fruit imparts energy and resonance, carrying this to a long, expansive aftertaste. The finish shows potential. Best from 2016 through 2035."

Drink or hold."91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tar, licorice, game, incense and smoke are some of the many notes that emerge from the 2008 Brunello di Montalcino from Mastrojanni. Big, rich and powerful, the 2008 shows the wilder side of the Sangiovese. The 2008 impresses for its freshness, nuance and delineation, all qualities that are increasingly evident as the wine opens up in the glass, releasing an attractive melang ...Read More »
