2009 Mastrojanni Brunello di Montalcino (Previously $47) Top Pick!
2009 Mastrojanni Brunello di Montalcino (Previously $47)

90 points James Suckling: "A clean, fresh red with dried-strawberry and lemon-rind character. Medium to full body, fine tannins and a chewy finish. Always excellent. Drink or hold." (2/2014) 90 points Vinous: "The 2009 Brunello di Montalcino is a pretty wine, with good freshness and solid overall balance for the year. Sweet tobacco, dried herbs, smoke and spice meld together nicely in the glass. Although a bit compact and forward, the 2009 offers lovely drinking today and should develop nicely for the next decade or so. In 2009, Mastrojanni did not produce their flagship Brunello Schiena d'Asino; that ...Read More »

2009 La Fortuna Brunello di Montalcino (Previously $40)

Vinous: "La Fortuna's 2009 Brunello di Montalcino is already quite forward. Dried cherries, crushed flowers, mint, tobacco and licorice meld together in a forward, mature Brunello ... (AG)" (5/2014) Wine Enthusiast: "Fragrances of mature black fruit, violet, espresso and baking spices take the lead. The palate delivers ripe red berries, black cherry, vanilla and mocha backed up by assertive but somewhat drying tannins." (5/2014) K&L Notes: La Fortuna celebrated their 100th anniversary in 2007, and Angelo Zannoni is the fifth generation of winemakers at the estate. He has been working with his fa... Read More »

2009 Cantalupo Colline Novaresi Nebbiolo "Agamium"

91 points Vinous: "The 2009 Colline Novaresei Agamium is floral, bright and deeply expressive, with plenty of lift and red stone fruit character. Feminine and gracious throughout, the 2009 offers considerable grace and plenty of near to medium-term appeal. A final burst of Chambolle-like fruit rounds out the finish. (AG)" (7/2015) 90 points Wine Enthusiast: "This polished Nebbiolo opens with aromas of perfumed berry, violet, tilled soil and grilled herb.

2009 Ferrero Brunello di Montalcino Riserva (Previously $40)

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 »

2009 Corte Rugolin "Crosara de le Strìe" Amarone Classico

You should know that the folks behind this newish label are none other than the children of the famous Amarone producer Bruno Coati. This one is impeccably balanced and rich, with layers of coffee, toffee, nuts, berries and earth. A raising star of the region, and already a frequent Gambero Rosso favorite, try this autumnal red with poultry and long cooked meats, or a rich traditional lasagne.

2009 Sesta di Sopra Brunello di Montalcino

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "At first the nose is a bit closed, but the wine then opens to reveal lovely, subdued floral notes of blue flower along with red fruit and spice. The juicy palate delivers ripe red and black berries accented with clove, white pepper and sage supported by solid tannins. Still tightly tannic so give this time to unwind. Drink 2016-2021." (3/2014) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Enrica Bandirola’s 2009 Brunello di Montalcino is an interesting and intriguing expression that boasts a very exotic, almost Byzantine (architecturally speaking) personality.

2009 Sella Lessona

92 points Vinous: "High-toned flowers, mint, spices, sweet red berries and anise all waft from the glass in the 2009 Lessona. A wine of superb elegance, the 2009 captures all the best qualities of the appellation in its silky, medium-bodied personality and highly expressive aromatics. Drink 2014 - 2021. Sella is one of the top estates in Northern Piedmont. I have always adored these wines since I first visited the estate a decade ago. I was reminded of how beautiful the wines are when I enjoyed a stellar bottle of the flagship 2006 Omaggio a Quintino Sella recently. Sella' ...Read More »

2009 La Velona Brunello di Montalcino

The tannins offer support, but are well-integrated, leading to a long, balanced finish. (Web-2015) (BS)" 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "From Podere Pietranera, the 2009 Brunello di Montalcino is a soft and perfumed expression that excels in consistency as it glides so smoothly over the senses. It shows dried cherry and cassis with good balance, finesse and class. The palate shows more firmness and grit with a pinch of sharp Sangiovese acidity on the close.

2009 Livio Sassetti "Pertimali" Brunello di Montalcino

Offers beautifully integrated tannins for the vintage. Drink now through 2023. 3,300 cases made." (10/2014) Jancis Robinson: "Mature-looking ruby with orange rim. Nutty yet not unfine but looks already quite mature on the nose with tobacco and earthy notes. Beginning of tar? Same mature impression on the palate but there is some depth to the fruit. Soft finish with just enough underlying tannins. Ends pretty sweet." (1/2014) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Yo ...Read More »

2009 Proprieta Sperino Lessona

94 points Vinous: "Sperino's 2009 Lessona is drop-dead gorgeous. Sweet red berries, tobacco, menthol and licorice all flesh out in a juicy, soft Nebbiolo with no hard edges and plenty of supple, deeply expressive fruit. This is an unusually resonant, generous young Lessona built on balance and symmetry. I expect the 2009 will be even better in another few years, but it is already a drop-dead gorgeous beauty."

Very silky texture. Drink or hold." (10/2015) 94 points Vinous: "The 2009 Gattinara Riserva is a wine for the exceedingly patient. Huge swaths of tannin cut across a huge core of fruit in a Gattinara endowed with serious depth, resonance and intensity.

Better in 2015." (2/2014) 93 points Vinous: "Vivid red. Multidimensional nose offers captivating aromas of raspberry, sour red cherry, redcurrant, brown sugar, cinnamon and minerals, lifted by a strong note of fresh citrus fruit.

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Barolo Bussia Sergio Barale delivers even richer fruit with obvious aromas of prune, plum and dark berry. Polished tannins, firm and tight, are backed by thick fruit padding and fresh acidity that will help navigate the trappings of cellar aging. 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.

The wine is extremely elegant, especially in the delicate way it puts forth its ethereal aromas of cola, licorice and grilled herb layer after layer. The palate delivers structure and good freshness. Drink: 2018-2028. Caroline Pobitzer and Jan Erbach run a tight ship at Pian dell’Orino.

The 2009 needs another year or two for the oak to integrate, but it is a pretty, feminine wine that should develop well with minimum cellaring. If opened today, the wine will need an hour or two of air to find its focus. It keeps getting better and better with air. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2019. (AG)" (6/2012)
