2010 La Velona Brunello di Montalcino (Pre-Arrival)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino is one of the best value wines of this celebrated vintage. Fruit is sourced from the Castelnuovo dell'Abate subzone of the appellation and you immediately notice the extra density and power of this wine (the label reads 14.5% alcohol and you feel it). That power is well checked by the general richness and pulpiness of the mouthfeel and the balanced intensity of the bouquet. Having said that, this Brunello definitely veers toward the savory side of the Sangiovese spectrum with dark cherry tones, dried meat and exotic spice. ...Read More »

2007 Paolo Conterno "Ginestra" Barolo Riserva (Pre-Arrival, Elsewhere $117)

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2007 Barolo Riserva Ginestra is born in extremely difficult conditions. Fruit is sourced from a hillside plot with impossibly steep inclines and shallow soils (with white tufo and clay) for limited root penetration. These factors help curb the natural vigor of the grapevine and result in high quality fruit. This wine sees a long maceration period (up to 40 days) and almost six years of barrel aging in botte grande. The results are spectacular with rich floral and menthol aromas folded within the wine’s silky texture. This 2007 Riserva feels much youn ...Read More »

(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 »

2012 Duemani "Duemani" Toscana (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
2012 Duemani "Duemani" Toscana (Pre-Arrival)

99 points James Suckling: "The clarity and beauty to this wine are breathtaking. The aromas of peaches, orange peel, blueberries and blackberries are truly amazing. Full body, phenomenal depth of fruit and silky tannins. There is polish and finesse, yet the strength is monumental. Better in 2018 but why wait? Demeter certified as biodynamic." (8/2015) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The lovely 2012 Duemani is a wine that will show its potential further down the road. This warm vintage expression is muscular and compact at this initial stage in its evolution. It needs more years of bottle aging to unwind and soften ...Read More »

2012 Fontodi "Flaccianello della Pieve" Toscana (Pre-Arrival)

97 points Vinous: "The 2012 Flaccianello della Pieve, a selection of the estate's best fruit, presents a darker, more virile expression of Sangiovese. Here, too, the purity of the flavors is truly striking. Cinnamon, cloves, new leather, licorice and plums are some of the notes that soar from the glass. The 2012 is full-bodied and voluptuous, in classic Flaccianello style, but the new French oak is much better integrated than it often is at this stage, the result of a move to lower toast levels over the last few years. This is one of the finest young Flaccianellos I can re ...Read More »

2012 Fontodi Chianti Classico (Pre-Arrival)

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Aromas of blackberry, crushed violet, tilled earth and a hint of tobacco lead the nose of this generous wine. The chewy palate offers juicy Marasca cherry, ground pepper, clove and anise alongside ripe, velvety tannins. It’s already delicious but will continue to develop over the next few years. Drink through 2020. — K.O. (9/1/2015)" (9/2015) 92 points Vinous: "The 2012 Chianti Classico is round, sweet and super-expressive. Dark red cherry, spice and tobacco meld together as this silky, open-knit Chianti Classico shows off its inviting personality. Succulent and racy to th ...Read More »

Once again San Giusto has elevated Sangiovese to a lofty, rarified level. Readers who can find the 2011 Percarlo should not hesitate. It is a real stunner." (9/2014)

2010 Tenuta di Sesta Brunello di Montalcino (1.5L) (Pre-Arrival)

95 points James Suckling: "Wonderful perfumes to this wine with hints of hot stone, blackberry, orange peel and nectarine on the nose. Full body, with a beautiful concentration of fruit and compacted tannins. The texture is every so silky and fine. It goes on for minutes. A beauty. Hot stone character at the finish too. A gorgeous and friendly wine. Drink or hold." (12/2014) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The elegant 2010 Brunello di Montalcino shows an impressive degree of inner grace and harmony. This wine expresses itself articulately with the softest tones. No part of its message is too loud. In fact, it whis ...Read More »

2009 Fuligni Brunello di Montalcino (Pre-Arrival)

94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright red. Mesmerizingly pure and intense aromas of raspberry, sour red cherry, minerals, licorice and violet. Sweet, lush and deep, with outstanding clarity and lift to the pure flavors of red cherry, raspberry and flint. Pristine and very long on the vibrant finish, which features extremely sophisticated tannins and superb length. The wine's minerally, flinty quality runs through from nose to aftertaste. A paradigm of cooler-climate Montalcino sangiovese, this is the year's best Brunello, and it will cost you a fraction as much as more famous Brunello ...Read More »

2010 Solaria Brunello di Montalcino (Pre-Arrival)

95 points James Suckling: "This is structured and firm with ultra-fine tannins and a juicy and delicious finish. A full-bodied, muscular wine that nevertheless shows complexity and finesse. Drink in 2017." (1/2015) 90 points Vinous: "Solaria's 2010 Brunello di Montalcino is a fruity, supple wine with plenty of near and medium-term appeal. Dried cherries, smoke, tobacco and cedar add nuance as this nicely balanced, harmonious Brunello shows its mid-weight, attractive personality. The 2010 is a wine that impresses for its balance and sense of harmony. (AG)" (2/2015)

Jancis Robinson: "Concentrated ruby and with orange tinges on the rim. Succulent and appetising and quite full bodied. Muscular tannin. Can already be approached."

2007 Aldo Conterno Barolo "Cicala" 1.5L (Pre-Arrival)

96 points James Suckling: "This is stunning, with licorice, flowers and dark fruits all over. Full and super silky and sexy. I am in love with this wine already. It will age for decades, but it is so in harmony and beautiful now. Gorgeous." (5/2011) 95 points Wine Spectator: "Scented with black cherry and plum, this international-style red shows plenty of smoky, toasty oak on the palate. It's rich, with sweet fruit, ample power and complexity, but will take some time to integrate the tannins. Best from 2016 through 2035. 300 cases imported. –BS" (4/2012) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2007 Barolo Cicala is every bit as compelling as the ...Read More » 



2010 San Lorenzo "Bramante" Brunello di Montalcino (Pre-Arrival)

A hint of new wood as well. This is a big, almost New World style that develops nicely in the glass. Give it two or three years to soften." (1/2015) Wine Enthusiast: "This opens with aromas of plum, menthol, licorice and a whiff of cellar floor. The palate offers dark berry fruit, clove, dried sage and white pepper alongside assertive, drying tannins and the warmth of evident alcohol." (5/2015)
