2009 Castello di Bossi "Girolamo" Merlot Toscana Top Pick!
2009 Castello di Bossi "Girolamo" Merlot Toscana

94 points Antonio Galloni: "Castello di Bossi's 2009 Merlot Girolamo is undeniably sexy. Plump, juicy and wonderfully expressive, the 2009 captures the very best qualities of the year. Dark cherries, plums, menthol and licorice all jump from the glass in this generous, inviting Tuscan Merlot. There is a lot to love about the 2009, starting with its impeccable balance.

2009 La Velona Brunello di Montalcino

The tannins offer support, but are well-integrated, leading to a long, balanced finish. Best from 2016 through 2026."

Fleshy, rich and layered, yet with terrific freshness, the 2009 impresses for its balance and pure vibrancy. Juicy red berries, mint, rose petals, autumn leaves and sweet spices all meld together on the finish.

Dried cherries, crushed flowers, mint, tobacco and licorice meld together in a forward, mature Brunello to drink over the next 2-3 years."

It opens to a compelling dark color and shows good density in the glass with dark ruby and garnet highlights. The bouquet is masculine and savory with deep renderings of dried fruit, spice, leather, cola and licorice.

2009 Ugo Lequio Barbera d'Alba Superiore

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Barbera d'Alba Superiore (aged 18 months in large oak cask) shows just enough spice and tobacco to add that extra layer of intensity and richness that makes Barbera so delicious. Dark fruit, blackberry, tar and cassis spread evenly over the palate. Long barrel aging has helped to soften the variety's naturally high acidity. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2018."

The wine offers a pristine narrative of both grape and place with crystalline aromas of cherry, blackberry, spice, leather, smoke and Mediterranean herb. The bouquet peels back one delicious layer at a time. The mouthfeel is similarly successful with deep concentration and complexity. It imparts soft layers of dried fruit and velvety tannins.

Bigger and richer on the palate than it often is, the 2009 Pora is also quite beautiful in this vintage. Sweet floral and mint notes wrap around the palate in this impeccable, beautifully balanced, mid-weight Barbaresco from the Produttori. The 2009 impresses for its pliancy and generosity. Today, the tannins are a bit four-squared, but there is enough depth in the fruit to make me think the wine will come together a little more fully with more time in bottle."

2009 Ermacora Pignolo Colli Orientali del Friuli

Pignolo is rare grape, native to Friuli and known for being "grumpy" and difficult to grow. Until a few decades ago, it was all but obsolete. The Ermacora family is among the few brave winemakers to replant this grape, and its patience has been rewarded. This is a powerful wine, with tannic heft and great complexity. According to the winemaker: "The aromas are full and fruity, with notes of cherry and ripe plum. The dry taste emphasizes hints of wild berry jam, aromatic spices, and stewed fruits. It is an ideal match for red meat dishes and game."
