2001 Biondi Santi Brunello di Montalcino Riserva (Pre-Arrival, Elsewhere $345)

96 points Wine Enthusiast: "Cellar Selection from the Wine Enthusiast: "Immediately, you know you are before a great Brunello with bright fruit aromas backed by forest floor, balsam notes, bramble, blue flowers, red apple and mint. The presence of wood is all but invisible and the wine sings true to its territory and tradition. The wine’s natural acidity and intensity promise a long and glorious aging future before it."" (3/2008) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: ""Biondi-Santi’s 2001 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is just as terrific in bottle as it was when I tasted it from cask last year.

1998 Biondi Santi (Tenuta Greppo) Brunello di Montalcino Riserva (Pre-Arrival, Previously $300)

94 points Wine Spectator: "Features beautiful perfume, evoking rose, cherry, licorice and tobacco. Elegant, delicate even, with fine harmony and refinement. Cherry and raspberry flavors are persistent. Lacks the power of a 2001 or 1997, but shows finesse and filigree. Should come around sooner than the 1997.—Biondi-Santi non-blind retrospective (July 2012). Best from 2018 through 2050. 867 cases made. –BS" (1/2012)

2010 Banfi "Poggio alle Mura" Brunello di Montalcino (1.5L)

A wine that shows such layered, in-depth character. Tight and exciting. Give it three to four years more before drinking." (12/2014) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The special vineyard selection 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Poggio Alle Mura opens to brooding dark concentration and an impressive sense of depth.

2011 Bibi Graetz Testamatta Rosso

98 points James Suckling: "This smells like great Burgundy with strawberry, flowers and hints of incense. Full body with wonderful, ultra-refined tannins and amazing depth and length. So layered and so fine. It goes on for minutes. Magical red. Better in 2017." (10/2014) 94 points Wine Spectator: "A good lashing of new oak provides toast and vanilla notes that augment the smoky black cherry and plum flavors. Combines complexity, freshness and balance, with licorice, leather and tar chiming in on the firm finish. Sangiovese. Drink now through 2018. From Italy.—B.S." (11/2015)

2011 Montevertine "Le Pergole Torte" Toscana Rosso

97 points Vinous: "A vivid, beautiful wine, the 2011 Pergole Torte is superb. Warm, early-maturing harvests often attenuate the differences between sites, but not here. The old vines weathered the heat better, resulting in a wine that is very much in line with the past, but with more body, amplitude and resonance. Rose petals, bright red stone fruits and mint are some of the many notes that grace the super-expressive finish. The 2011 spent one year in French oak barrels and a second year in cask.

Freshly cut flowers, crushed rocks, mint and bright red stone fruits are all shaped by a very classic sense of mineral-inflected drive that is such a Ravera signature.

Iron, plums, dark red cherries, smoke, licorice and tobacco meld together in a remarkably harmonious young Serralunga Barolo. This is the first year the Vietti Lazzarito includes a second recently acquired parcel, which may be one of the factors that influences quality, but at the same time, the Lazzarito has been the most improved Barolo in the range.

2001 Gaja Darmagi (Cabernet)

Dark cherries, plums, bell peppers, sweet herbs and licorice are nicely layered in this vibrant, powerful Cabernet Sauvignon. The 2001 Darmagi brings together the characteristics of cool-climate Cabernet and an extroverted personality that are very nicely balanced. The 2001 is still very much on the young side, although it can be enjoyed today. I am amazed at how well the 2001 has developed over the years." (4/2012)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2007 Antinori "Tignanello" Toscana (95RP, 94WE, 92WS, 91ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Antinori's 2007 Tignanello is wonderfully ripe and seductive in its dark cherries, flowers, spices, tobacco, sage, cedar, mint and minerals. This is as opulent a Tignanello as I have ever tasted but there is just enough acidity and structure from the Sangiovese to keep things from going over the top. The wine's richness and warmth are such that in a blind tasting I mistook the 2007 Tignanello for a wine from Maremma! The dense, muscular fruit follows through to an impeccable finish with no hard edges and impossibly fine, silky tannins. Simply put, the 2007 is a magnificent Tignanello...80% Sangiovese aged in 300-liter French oak barrels (1/3 new), 15% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc, both aged in 100% new 225-liter French oak barriques.

The acidity seems low because of the huge glycerin levels and prodigious concentration of fruit, but I suspect it is normal in the scheme of oenological measurement. This profound wine requires 3-4 years of cellaring, and should age well for 30-35 years. (RP)" (6/2001) 95-97 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Saturated deep ruby.

2006 Giuseppe Quintarelli Valpolicella Classico Superiore
Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2006 Giuseppe Quintarelli Valpolicella Classico Superiore (91AG). Antonio Galloni: "The 2006 Valpolicella Classico Superiore is a an attractive wine to drink now and over the next few years, as the flavors offer gorgeous complexity and nuance. Cedar, tobacco, smoke, worn-in leather and dried cherries are all laced together in the glass in a powerful Valpolicella loaded with class and personality. Firm tannins convey a decidedly old-school sense of structure. (AG)" (07/2015)

2011 Giuseppe Rinaldi "Tre-Tine" Barolo

93 points Vinous: "Rinaldi's 2011 Barolo Tre Tine is super-expressive and gorgeous today. Dark red cherry, plum, cloves, new leather, rose petal and mint notes are all wonderfully alive and delineated. The Tre Tine is a blend of fruit from Ravera, Cannubi-San Lorenzo and Le Coste, all in the town of Barolo. In the warm 2011 vintage, the significant presence of fruit from Ravera, a high-altitude site, gives the Tre Tine its sense of freshness and linear energy. The Brunate is a bit richer and creamier, but today, I have a slight preference for the Tre Tine, as it is fresher ...Read More »

1998 Gaja "Sorì Tildìn" Langhe Nebbiolo

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Chocolate, coffee, smoke, licorice, and tobacco characteristics are found in the complex, deep purple-colored 1998 Sori Tildin. Surprisingly seductive for such a young wine, it exhibits abundant aromatic fireworks, fabulous fruit concentration, a layered opulence, more intensity, glycerin, and depth than the Costa Russi, and a spectacularly long finish. Anticipated maturity: 2002-2025. (RP)" (10/2001) 93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "(from a blend of 11- and 36-year-old vines) Full ruby-red. Restrained but pure aromas of currant, plum, menthol and roasted meat. Supple, rich and seamless; ...Read More »

1995 Soldera (Case Basse) "Intistieti" Brunello di Montalcino Riserva

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1995 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Intistieti possesses prodigious aromatics, flavor nuances, and complexity. It reveals Asian spice notes in addition to an exotic, funky incense smell to the extraordinary ripe, surreal perfume. There is also a dry, layered, intriguing texture and a finish that lasts for nearly a minute. This wine seems to change every ten seconds or so, offering up provocative aromas and flavors. In short, I have never tasted anything quite like it. Kudos to the fanatical proprietor! (RP)" (10/2001) 90 points Vinous: "The 1995 Intistieti was the finest ...Read More »

1997 Bruno Giacosa "Asili" Barbaresco

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1997 Barbaresco Asili has developed stunningly since it was first tasted, a typical characteristic of Giacosa's wines. Surprisingly precocious and evolved for a wine from this estate, it possesses a dark ruby color with an amber edge, and abundant quantities of tobacco, cherry liqueur, incense, spice box, and licorice in its flamboyant nose. It is like candy, fleshy, full-bodied, unctuous, and silky. (RP)" (6/2001) 91-94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Excellent red ruby color. Deep aromas of black cherry, black raspberry, cassis, chocolate, flowers and herbs. Sweet, supple and very dense; ...Read More »
