2015 Tenuta di Sesta Brunello di Montalcino
Top Pick!
94 points International Wine Review: "The 2015 Tenuta di Sesta Brunello di Montalcino begins with a gorgeous aromatic profile of cherries, orange zest, grapefruit juice and fresh ginger which all come together beautifully in this young Brunello. On the palate this is medium-to full-bodied, structured with soft, round tannins and a precise finish that is solid and compact. This will be accessible young but should develop also nicely with some short-term cellaring and drink beautifully for years to come. RV" (03/2020) 94 points James Suckling: "Quite und...

Wine Enthusiast: "This blend of 50% Negroamaro, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Primitivo offers a bright, zesty nose of mixed berries alongside lifted pepper and graphite accents. There's a tense, grippy feel to the tannins, with bright shots of acidity propelling the crunchy berry flavors along. A light cherry pit note extends on the finish. *Best Buy*" (11/2019) Wine Spectator: "A bright, light- to medium-bodied red, with light, creamy tannins and a fruity mix of candied cherry, crushed raspberry, bay leaf and orange peel flavors.

2018 Fèlsina "Berardenga" Chianti Classico
Top Pick!
93 points James Suckling: "Perfumed and fresh with cherries, cedar and hints of dried flowers. It’s medium-bodied with fine tannins and a long, direct finish. Really lively and fresh. Very typical for a top Chianti Classico. " (05/2020) 92 points Vinous: "The 2018 Chianti Classico Berardenga is endowed with so much class. In 2018, the Classico is a bit more restrained than it can be. That mid-weight sense of structure, though, gives the wine quite a bit of early appeal. Even so, I would cellar the 2018 for a few years, as all the elements haven't fully...

Ettore Spina and his wife, Enrica Bandirola, owners of Sesta di Sopra, planted a new vineyard to Sangiovese in 2005. It has the same Galestro soils as the others, perfect for taming Sangiovese's natural vigor. Unfortunately, in Montalcino all of the Brunello di Montalcino and Rosso di Montalcino vineyards are all registered and controlled, and they aren't allowing any more to be added right now, so the wine that comes from this new vineyard has to be designated an IGT (Indicates Geographic Tipicity). (Greg St. Clair, K&L Italian Wine Buyer)

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "Fragrant aromas of peach blossom, field flower and ripe white-stone fruit are front and center on the nose.

Round and firm with beautiful fruit and length. Lively and vivid. From organically grown grapes." (10/2019) 96 points Wine Enthusiast: "Aromas of ripe dark-skinned berry, violet, underbrush and warm spice emerge in the glass, along with a whiff of camphor.

Sorelle Bronca Prosecco di Valdobbiadene Extra Dry
Top Pick!
The Bronca sisters grow their own fruit on steep hillside vineyards, then make base wine and perform the secondary (sparkling) fermentation on non-vintage batches three or four times a year to ensure freshness. Low yields and hillside-grown fruit ensure that the wine has good concentration and acidity. This one's a clean, crisp and utterly refreshing sparkler that is one of our favorites.
Price: $19.99

99 points Wine Enthusiast: "Aromas of woodland berry, underbrush, hazelnut and camphor form the nose along with a whiff of rose petal on this captivating, delicious wine. The full-bodied structured palate is still young and primary but already shows raspberry compote, ripe Marasca cherry, star anise, tobacco and the barest hint of game. Tightly knit noble tannins and fresh acidity provide the firm frame and impart serious aging potential. Hold for even more complexity. *Cellar Selection* (KO)" (07/2020) 98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "All of ...

(10/2020) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Tenute Silvio Nardi 2016 Brunello di Montalcino makes a big impact in the glass thanks to its dark color saturation and the pretty intensity of its aromas that range from dark fruit and plum to soft potting soil and grilled h...

99 points James Suckling: "A tight, linear red with plums, chocolate and walnuts and some forest-floor and porcini mushroom undertones. Complex and aromatic. Full-bodied with dense, chewy tannins that are intense and powerful. Flavorful and long. Opulent." (11/2020) 98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Fuligni gives us a truly special expression from this sunny and warm vintage. What I notice first in the 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is the elegance of the aromas and those dusty, almost salty mineral notes of crushed limestone that frame th...

Monica Larner writes: "One of the oldest estates in the Langhe, Fratelli Barale was founded in 1870, shortly after the Barolo denomination was created with the help of Marchesi Falletti and founding father of modern Italy, Count of Cavour, Camillo Benso. Sergio Barale and his daughters manage the estate today. The various expressions of Barolo are all aged from two to three years in botte grande."

96 points International Wine Review: "This is a gorgeous wine from Villa Poggio Salvi in this vintage. This opens to distinctive aromatics with notes of raspberries, currants, rose petals, wild myrtle with a beautiful citrus undertone, which immediately dispenses character and authority. On the palate this is full-bodied and extracted, with powerful tannins, which are velvety and beautifully blend harmoniously into the concentrated finish that expresses all the fruit quality. Already extremely compelling now, however this stunning Brunello should become ...

Really attractive dried citrus at the end." (08/2020) 94 points Vinous: "Here I find a gorgeous and intense display, mixing savory and sweet, as well as, earth and fruit, as dusty cedar and spice give way to ripe strawberry with a hint of citrus, with wild herbs and a hint of animal musk adding further depths. On the palate, silky textures meld into woodland red berry fru...

2016 Fuligni Brunello di Montalcino (Pre-Arrival) (Pre-Arrival)
Top Pick!
98 points Vinous: "Dark, inward and intense, the 2016 Brunello di Montalcino is a towering effort that will thrill collectors for many years to come. It arrives in waves, first black fruits evolving to red, then sage and earthy minerals, followed by brown spice and, finally, hints of tobacco. Youthfully dense, velvety and in no hurry to unfurl the complex web of fruit, minerals and tannins found within, this instead leaves you guessing at what’s to come. That said, there’s perfect symmetry here, along with the combination of structure and primary intensi...

Drink now." (07/2020) 91 points Vinous: "Luminous red with ruby highlights. Very clean rose and flinty notes add complexity to the pungent red and black fruit-accented nose. Clean fresh and lively in the mouth, with similar flavors to the aromas. This becomes much sweeter with aeration so make sure you decant a couple of hours ahead. From vineyards that are devote...

Gelmino and Cristina Dal Bosco started their winery in 2002 when the family decided to stop selling their grapes to the local co-op and make wine themselves. The winery and vineyards are located in the town of Brognoligo in the heart of the Soave Classico production area that is limited only to the communes of Soave and Monteforte d’Alpone in the province of Verona. The Montesei bottling is 100% Garganega which is harvested by hand and vinified in stainless steel. The color of the wine is a yellow straw, and the profile bright and floral with mineral det...

A thoroughly beautiful young 2016. Drink or hold. " (09/2020) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Azelia's classic 2016 Barolo shows a spicy or savory personality with accents of laurel leaf, eucalyptus and clove.

(JS)" (11/2020) 97 points Vinous: "The 2016 Brunello di Montalcino Piero is an excellent follow-up to the 2015 that wowed me earlier this year.

This year has been really difficult for Italian producers, restaurants, where most wine is sold in Italy have been closed or partially open. So, for producers, the local market has dried up. I know a producer whose winery was still full of wine but he needed the tank space for the new vintage. He decided (I was very skeptical, by the way) to blend all of his white wines together and sell it all at a tremendous loss (the whites normally sell in the $25-$30 range) just to empty his cellar. I should not have been so skeptical. The wine is predominantly Pino...

This has been the #1 selling Italian wine for more than two decades at K&L! You can't get that kind of continued success without a supremely fantastic quality-to-price ratio. The southern Tuscan coast is a wonderful location for winemaking, with stable temperatures and a solid history of quality, yet no fame and fortune. Incredibly priced bargains come out of the region, and the proof is in the bottle. This wine is wonderful, soft, forward and easy-to-drink Sangiovese with an enticing mixture of cherry, plum and earth. Eminently drinkable.

The bouquet opens to robust aromas of blackberry jam and cherry preserves. You feel the heat and richness of the vintage, and there's no way around it. The 2017 growing season produced very concentrated fruit with smaller berry size due to heat and drought. In effect, you get a super-sized Barbera that ups the ante in terms of extraction and intensity. There is a point of almost-sweetness on the close f...

As always, Marenca has that extra kick of fruit density and richness that works so well to play off its considerable tannic clout.

Dark red cherry, red plum, chocolate, licorice and spice all flesh out in this delicious and inviting Dolcetto from the Vajra family.
