2012 Marisa Cuomo "Fiorduva" Costa d'Amalfi Furore Bianco

From Robert Parker: "The Fiorduva is a rare coastal white that has tropical fruit inflections, but at the same time, there is more than enough acidity to balance things out...The Fiorduva is 40% Ripoli, 30% Fenile and 30% Ginestra. 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. This small estate is located on the Amalfi Coast, which lends its inimitable ocean influence to the wines."

Deceptively medium in body, this classically austere, tannic Barolo possesses striking nuance, chiseled fruit and exceptional overall balance. The 2010 spent two years in cask followed by another year in cement. Readers should plan on forgetting the 2010 for at least a few years."

Tight and structured. Try it in 2016." (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.

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 Mauro Molino "Bricco Luciani" Barolo

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Dark and rich upon first impact, the 2010 Barolo Bricco Luciani is a powerful and muscular expression that aspires to the highest level of aromatic intensity. This wine definitely leaves a lasting impression and speaks in high volumes for the 2010 vintage. It presents delicate tones of dried cherry, blue flower and licorice backed by oak-driven tones of nutmeg and dried tobacco leaf. If feels smooth and silky on the palate. Those firm tannins bode well for long-term consumption. Drink: 2017-2030. (ML)" (7/2014)91 points James Suckling: "Bright aromas of strawberries and flowers fol ...Read More »

2010 Donatella Cinelli Colombini Brunello di Montalcino

First, it hits the nose with a wonderful medley of ripe, dark fruit, spice, tar, tobacco, leather and dried herbs. The wine is impeccably made and the quality of fruit is outstanding. Ultimately, your patronage of this brand depends on whether you like this bold, softer style. If you do, this Brunello delivers satisfaction in spades. Fleshy oak tones of cinnamon and clove round off the finish. It is extremely soft and smooth to the touch. This ...Read More »

2010 San Filippo Brunello di Montalcino (Pre-Arrival)

97 points James Suckling: "Extremely complex aromas of mushroom, stone, chalk, dark fruit and lightly dried bark or tea. Full-bodied, with powerful, layered tannins. Muscular and intense. 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 »

2010 Ca' del Baio "Pora" Barbaresco

Racy and bright." (3/2015)90 points Antonio Galloni: "The 2010 Barbaresco Pora is sweet, layered and perfumed in the glass, with hints of hard candy, wild flowers, sweet and mint. This is an unusually sweet, almost candied wine for the year, perhaps because of the slightly greater influence of French oak tonneaux. There is good immediacy here, but the Pora doesn't reach the level of the best wines here. The rationale f ...Read More »

2011 Ornellaia "Le Serre Nuove" Bolgheri

94 points Antonio Galloni: "The 2011 Le Serre Nuove dell'Ornellaia comes across as tight and shut down today. There is plenty of depth in the glass, but less of the appeal I saw just a few months ago. The high tannins of the vintage and the relatively large amount of Petit Verdot (14%) are both very marked at this stage in the wine's life. Readers holding the 2011 are best off cellaring their bottles for at least another 1-2 years. The 2011 Le Serre Nuove is a powerhouse.

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.

96 points James Suckling: "Lots of candied-orange, dark-fruit and dried-flower character on the nose. Full body with soft, silky tannins and a chewy finish. Funky and intense. Lots of smoked-meat, berry and dark-chocolate character. Very rich and delicious. Best Brunello from here in a long time. Try in 2016." (1/2015)93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Pian delle Vigne is a well-built wine that shows the muscular side of this celebrated star of Tuscan winemaking.

Cappellano Barolo Chinato 500ml

The originator of this fabulous bitter aperitif wine, Cappellano is truly top dog when it comes to Chinato. This is absolutely the most overtly appealling and drinkable Chinato I have ever tasted. The family's secret recipe was developed over 100 years ago by Giuseppe Cappellano, the pharmacist son of this storied estates founder Filippo. While he died of tropical fever in Tunisia, his recipe lives on. This is the first Chinato I could imagine sitting down with and finishing the bottle, but it's works so well as a mixer you must experiment. Don't be shy... Read More »

2007 Travaglini Gattinara Riserva

92 points James Suckling: "Pretty aromas of rose bush and ripe strawberries follow though to a full body with fine tannins and a cocoa, fruit and light hazelnut character. This is always a delicious expression of Nebbiolo. Drink or hold until 2023." (12/2013)90 points Wine Spectator: "A lean style, more on the savory than fruity side, offering cherry and berry flavors, accented by tobacco, leather and spice notes. Firm tannins grip the finish, recommending this to braised beef. Drink now through 2020." (2/2014) Jancis Robinson: "Mid ruby with broad orange rim. Ripe, dried fruit and tobacco leaf. Lots of concentration and succul ...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)

2004 Feudi di San Gregorio "Serpico" Campania

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2004 Serpico is an excellent choice for readers who want to enjoy an Aglianico with quite a bit of tertiary character. Wild cherries, game, earthiness, tobacco and licorice flow from this burly, somewhat rustic Serpico. The French oak has added a measure of richness, but is now nicely integrated. Menthol, dried flowers and leather add the final layers of complexity on the building finish. This is a firm, hearty Serpico that needs to be opened at least several hours in advance. Relative to Campania’s other heavy hitters, Serpico lacks a measure of ele ...Read More »

2011 Galardi "Terra di Lavoro" Roccamonfina (Pre-Arrival)

97 points James Suckling: "Complex aromas of blackberry, stones, cracked black pepper and tar. Full body with soft, round tannins and a juicy, fruity finish. Soulful and refined from this estate. This is a magical wine from Southern Italy." (2/2014)92 points Wine Spectator: "There's drive to this well-meshed, sanguine red, offering flavors of herbs, dried currant, iron and black olive that are deftly layered with sinewy tannins and balancing acidity. Drink now through 2021." (4/2014)91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "(a blend of aglianico and piedirosso): Good full ruby. Ripe red cherry, dark plum, licorice, coffee and spicy oak on the nose. S ...Read More »

2006 Lisini Brunello di Montalcino

93 points James Suckling: "What a dreamy nose of crushed berries and dried flowers. Perfumes too. Then changes to Indian spices and dark fruits. Full bodied, with super well integrated tannins and a classy, long finish. So well integrated. Just a joy to taste. Better in 2013." (1/2011)92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good deep red. Aromas of crushed cherry, minerals and pungent smoke. Intense red berry and spice flavors are framed by strong but integrated acidity. Not at all overly sweet but broad, rich and concentrated. Classy, floral sangiovese with superb energy and lift, and the structure to support a slow and ...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)94 points Wine Spectator: "This is packed with sweet cherry, plum and mulberry fruit, accented by licorice, leather and spice notes. Shows grip and character, with a mouthwatering finish. Best from 2018 through 2033. 2,100 cases made. –BS" (6/2015)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 Montalci ...Read More »
