2010 Castiglion del Bosco Brunello di Montalcino

96 points James Suckling: "Fabulous aromas of oranges, peaches and mahogany follow through to a full body with rich, chewy tannins and a long, flavorful finish.

2010 Val di Suga Brunello di Montalcino

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Val di Suga's 2010 Brunello di Montalcino is a full-bodied expression with opulent tones of dark fruit, spice, leather, tobacco and licorice.

2010 Castelli del Grevepesa Chianti Classico "Panzano" Gran Selezione

96 points James Suckling: "This is so dense and beautiful and has such amazing depth of fruit and power. Full body with massive intensity and length. Chewy but polished and balanced. This is just a baby still: Try in 2018." (10/2014)90 points Wine Spectator: "Enticing aromas of violet and black currant are complemented by cherry, leather and spice flavors. The tannins are a bit gruff, but there is ample sweet fruit. Needs food. Drink now through 2020. (Web Only—2015)"

2006 Terralsole Brunello di Montalcino (Elsewhere $55)

93 points James Suckling: "Very pretty, rich and subtle flavors of dried fruits such as sultanas, with a delicate coffee note. Full and silky with a long, long finish. Lots going on here. Drink now, but it will improve for many years to come." (7/2011)92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Brunello is the perfect winter wine to enjoy by a roaring fire with friends or a romantic partner. This expression from Terralsole is particularly well suited to this happy fate thanks to its silky, soft nature, firm tannins, spice aromas and bursting fruit tones. (ML)" (4/2011)91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino is an attractive, fleshy w ...Read More »

2009 Ferrero Brunello di Montalcino

Claudia Ferrero and her husband/winemaker Pablo Härri's estate is called the Podere Pascena and it sits in the southwesterly corner of Montalcino (they are bordered by Argiano and Banfi's Riserva vineyard "Poggio all'Oro"). The wines from this zone are really rich and you can feel the sun shining on these grapes, ripening, and filling them with a dense richness, while their wines show lots of black cherry, plum, chocolate with a satiny texture, round, full and broad on the palate. When we were first introduced to this winery, we thought it was so soft, f... Read More »

2011 Jermann "Vintage Tunina" Friuli-Venezia-Giulia (Elsewhere $65)

94 points James Suckling: "A gorgeous and flavorful white with sliced mangoes, apples and lemons. Full and fresh with a long, long finish. Full of character. Always one of the best wines of Italy. A blend of sauvignon, chardonnay, ribolla gialla, malvasia Iastriana, and picolit. Screw cap." (12/2013)91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2011 Vintage Tunina is a blend of Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Ribolla Gialla, Malvasia Istriana and Picolit that shows impressive density and integrity. The wine feels silky smooth and pleasurable on the palate, imparting stone fruit, preserved lemon and sun-ripened Golden Delicious appl ...Read More »

2010 Fornacina Brunello di Montalcino Top Pick!
2010 Fornacina Brunello di Montalcino

95 points James Suckling: "There's a real purity of fruit to this wine with dried cherries, peaches and plums on the nose and palate. Full body, super integrated and chewy tannins, and a long, flavorful finish. Impressive. Best ever from here. Better after 2018." (1/2015)93 points Antonio Galloni: "The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino is striking. Beams of supporting tannin provide a firm backbone of structure as this deeply expressive Brunello shows off its personality. Savory herbs, dark red cherry, lavender, smoke and licorice open up in the glass, adding considerable layers of complexity. The tannins could use ...Read More »

2009 Tassi Brunello di Montalcino (Previously $50)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Brunello di Montalcino is a pretty and nuanced wine that paints a more complete picture of the 2009 vintage. 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. Within a few moments, very distant tones of black truffle and earthly highlights begin to emerge from the glass and give the wine that extra Sangiovese character you look for in Brunello. There’s more texture here as well. N ...Read More »

2011 Proprietà Sperino "Uvaggio" Costa della Sesia

92 points Antonio Galloni: "Tobacco, dried herbs, hard candy, leather, rose petal, earthiness and spices are all laced together in the 2011 Uvaggio. In this vintage, the Uvaggio is dark, rich and textured, with a little more amplitude than normal and a little less freshness, both of which make me thing it is best enjoyed sooner rather than later. Over the last year, the 2011 has put on considerable depth, which, along with the natural richness of the year, results in an Uvaggio that is unusually generous. What a gorgeous wine this is. The 2011 is 80% Nebbiolo and 20% Vespolina, wit ...Read More »

2010 San Giacomo Brunello di Montalcino

94 points James Suckling: "There is a beautiful presence to this wine, with a super-fine tannin structure and dried mushroom and orange peel on the nose. Full body, ultra-fine tannins and a refined, pretty finish. So much beauty to this. Drink or hold." (1/2015)93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Full bodied and balanced, this conveys aromas of menthol, underbrush, savory herb, fennel, tilled soil and leather. The vibrant palate offers bright red cherry, crushed raspberry, clove, grilled herb, anise and a balsamic note alongside tightly knit but poised tannins and bright acidity. Drink 2018–2025."

2011 Tenuta Sette Ponti "Oreno" Toscana (Pre-Arrival)

96 points James Suckling: "There is a purity of fruit in this young Tuscan red, with flowers, citrus fruit and currants. Full body with firm, silky tannins that are ultra-fine and wonderfully polished. The structure builds to a racy finish. This is a Bordeaux blend that is all in harmony. Give it time: the tannins and fruit will melt together." (11/2013)94 points Antonio Galloni: "The 2011 Oreno wraps around the palate with gorgeous resonance and silkiness. Mocha, cloves, leather and dark spices all add nuance to a core of voluptuous, racy fruit. This is a typical 2011 long on texture, resonance and early app ...Read More »
