2008 Bisceglia Aglianico del Vulture "Gudarrà" (Elsewhere $22) Top Pick!
2008 Bisceglia Aglianico del Vulture "Gudarrà" (Elsewhere $22)

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 Casanova di Neri "Tenuta Nuova" Brunello di Montalcino (Pre-Arrival, Elsewhere $65+) Top Pick!
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." (5/2013)93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Brunello Tenuta Nuova opens with inky dark consistency and immediate aromas ...Read More »

2008 Sesta di Sopra Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Top Pick!
2008 Sesta di Sopra Brunello di Montalcino Riserva

91 points Antonio Galloni: "A dark, brooding wine, the 2008 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva boasts terrific depth and intensity in its black cherries, mocha, scorched earth, game and black olives. The flavors are intense and pungent, while slight hints of oxidation suggest the 2008 is on its way to being fully mature. For now, though, the 2008 offers solid overall balance and plenty of personality. (AG)" (5/2014)91 points James Suckling: "A firm, silky wine with hazelnut and berry character. Medium to full body with firm tannins and a fresh, clean finish. Chewy. Give it time to soften. Better in 2016. ...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 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 Corte Rugolin "Monte Danieli" Amarone Classico

The finest wine in the stable at Corte Rugolin, the Monte Danieli Amarone is sourced from a 60 year old vineyard with excellent sun exposure. It is comprised of 55% Corvina, 15% Corvinone, 5% Rondinella, and a balance of the other local varieties of Olinara, Dindarellla, Oseleta, and Croatina. Harvest began in September and the grapes were loaded onto special racks where they were allowed to dry at room temperature in a ventilated room for three months. This process reduced the original weight of the grapes by 35-40% via dehydration, and in turn concentr... 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 Elio Grasso "Rüncot" Barolo Riserva (Pre-Arrival)

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." (9/2014)97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Barolo Riserva Rüncot is an exceptional wine that is only made in the best years. It was produced in 2008, 2010 and 2013. The wine undergoes a 40-day maceration time with four years in oak and one ...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 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 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."

2008 Fanti Brunello di Montalcino

It’s like a comfortable cashmere coat: There’s class and elegance with a utilitarian side. Pair it with tri-tip slow cooked over coals. — M.L." (5/2013)91 points James Suckling: "Pretty plum and peach character on the nose follows through to a full body, with fine tannins and a fresh, tangy, fruity finish. Drink now."

This is a soft and beautifully decadent wine with plush and perfectly ripe aromas of black cherry, light spice, chocolate and tobacco. The smoothness, richness and persistency is simply unbeatable."

Wonderfully brisk, complete wine with an explosive back end featuring great tannic structure and outstanding aromatic lift.
