2010 La Velona Brunello di Montalcino (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
2010 La Velona Brunello di Montalcino (Pre-Arrival)

93 points Antonio Galloni: "A dark, powerful wine, the 2010 Brunello di Montalcino possesses gorgeous depth and nuance. Intensely savory and mineral, the 2010 packs a serious punch. Readers will have to give the 2010 a few years to settle down, but there is plenty of intrigue. Mediterranean herbs, game, smoke, lavender and dried flowers add nuance on the finish. This is a highly distinctive wine from the southern reaches of Montalcino, with more in the way of ferrous/mineral notes than overt fruit. (AG)" (2/2015)93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino is one of the best value wines of this ...Read More »

2010 Viticcio Chianti Classico Riserva (Elsewhere $30) Top Pick!
2010 Viticcio Chianti Classico Riserva (Elsewhere $30)

91 points James Suckling: "Lots of blueberry and toasted oak character with vanilla undertones. Full body, fine tannins and a fresh finish. The new wood and ripe fruit needs to come together still. Try in 2014." (11/2013)90 points Antonio Galloni: "Firm tannins support an expressive core of dark red/blue fruits in the 2010 Chianti Classico Riserva. The aromas and flavors are bright, delineated and nuanced. Readers should give the wine another 6-12 months in the cellar for the tannins to soften, but this is already an impressive Chianti that should drink well for another handful of years. Hints of tobacco, und ...Read More »

2010 Palazzone Brunello di Montalcino (Pre-Arrival)

95 points James Suckling: "Wonderful texture to this Brunello with so much dried fruit, chalk, stone, salt and light chocolate character. It's full body, fine tannins and bright acidity delivers a complete package with beauty and elegance. Better in 2016." (1/2015)93 points Antonio Galloni: "Il Palazzone's 2010 Brunello di Montalcino is racy, sumptuous and quite pretty. Sweet tobacco, mint and licorice are woven throughout, adding considerable nuance to a core of red-fleshed fruit. Silky tannins and an overall feeling of resonance give the 2010 considerable early appeal, but there is more than enough structur ...Read More »

2010 Domenico Clerico "Pajana" Barolo (Previously $85)

94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good medium red. Less expressive on the nose than the Briccotto, hinting at ripe, musky plum, black raspberry, menthol and tobacco. Then smooth and sweet in the mouth, but with terrific energy keeping the red fruit and tobacco flavors fresh and primary. Sweeter and more elegant in style than the 2009, but this fine-grained, firmly tannic wine really shut down in the glass. Outstanding potential here." (12/2013)93 points James Suckling: "A solid wine for the vintage with pretty fruit such as cherry and plum, as well as a light minerality. Full body with chewy tannins and a polis ...Read More »

2009 Vie di Romans "Ciampagnis Vieris" Chardonnay 375ml (Previously $16)

91 points James Suckling: "A rich and fruit Chardonnay with apple pie and milk aromas and flavors. Full and fruity, with lots going on. Always excellent." (12/2011)90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good, medium yellow color with gold highlights. Bright, pure aromas of tropical fruit, lime and white pepper. Dense, supple and fresh, offering bright orchard fruit, butter and pineapple flavors that gain depth and spiciness with air. In an exuberant, in-your-face, fruit-filled New World style, but avoids coming across as an over-the-top caricature. Serious unoaked chardonnay with impressive purity."

2010 Angelo Germano "Mondoca di Bussia" Barolo (Previously $67)

Jancis Robinson: "Monforte d’Alba. Quite deep ruby with narrow orange rim – oak? Very closed and reluctant on the nose, with only a hint of bacon. Succulent fruit with a muscular tannic structure and multilayered finish, but not nearly ready. (17/20)" (6/2014) K&L Notes: Started by Angelo Germano in 1908, this estate has been run by the fourth generation of Germanos--Davide--since the 1990s.

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 »

2010 La Mannella Brunello di Montalcino (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
2010 La Mannella Brunello di Montalcino (Pre-Arrival)

95 points James Suckling: "This is a powerful and intense wine with incredible tannins that are polished and long. Full body, a dense palate and a superb finish. This is a great wine for the long term. Better in 2020." (12/2014)90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tommaso Cortonesi's 2010 Brunello di Montalcino shows a dark garnet hue with faint crimson and amber highlights. Compared to its peers, this Brunello shows more evolved tones of dried cassis, oak spice, candied licorice and grilled herbs. It exhibits a rustic personality with a few rough edges that add to its somewhat gruff character. I sampled this wine 12 ...Read More »

2009 Tassi "Franci" Brunello di Montalcino (Previously $90)

93 points James Suckling: "A wine with blueberry and chocolate character. Medium body with hints of orange peel and cocoa. Lot of dried strawberries too. A small Brunello production with soul. Top cuvée. Drink or hold." (2/2014)90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good full red. Sexy aromas of ripe raspberry, sweet spices, tobacco and quinine, plus mineral and truffle nuances. Fresh and vibrant on the palate, with a strong spine of acids and tannins nicely supporting the wine's underlying rich, ripe red-fruit sweetness. Finishes with excellent length and balance."

2010 Angelo Germano "Rué" Barolo (Previously $65)

93 points James Suckling: "Aromas of tar and asphalt combined with strawberries follow through to a full-bodied, juicy Barolo with fine tannins and a beautiful acid/fruit balance. Long on the finish, and although a bit oaky now, this will be excellent in 2016." (8/2014) K&L Notes: Started by Angelo Germano in 1908, this estate has been run by the fourth generation of Germanos--Davide--since the 1990s. (Davide's first complete vintage was 1998.) This is sourced from the Rué Vineyard. The vineyard's soils are sandy marl, and the vines are farmed naturally, using Integrated Pest Management techn... Read More »

2010 La Mannella "I Poggiarelli" Brunello di Montalcino (Pre-Arrival)

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Menthol, mint, sage, dark berry and rose aromas come with a balsamic note. Firm, fine-grained tannins support concentrated black cherry, crushed plum, mocha, vanilla and licorice flavors. Drink through 2022." (5/2015)91 points James Suckling: "A firm and fresh red with dried cherry and cedar character and hints of minerals. Full body, fine tannins. Better in 2016" (1/2015) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino I Poggiarelli sees 12 months in tonneaux and is later transferred to large Slavonian oak casks. In comparison, the estate's base Brunello only goes into large casks. Those added tonn ...Read More »

2008 Tassi "Franci" Brunello di Montalcino Riserva (Previously $120)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Franci lays on good foundations despite the overall austerity of the 2008 vintage. True to the Riserva moniker, there’s an extra dose of intensity here, a riper style, bright acidity at the back and an added layer of firmness or astringency to the tannins. Even the alcohol feels slightly warmer in the 2008 Riserva compaired to the two 2009 Brunellos although it is not (14% compared to 14.5% for the two 2009 wines). In summary, this wine does exactly with Brnello Riserva should do: It brings you a little bit more of ...Read More »

2006 Terralsole Brunello di Montalcino (Elsewhere $55)

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. — M.L" (4/2011)91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino is an attractive, fleshy wine graced with soft red fruit, French oak, flowers, mint and spices. This open, radiant Brunello is an excellent choice for drinking over the next few years. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2020." (5/2011)

2005 Le Piane Boca (Previously $90)

From the Boca DOC in Piemonte, Le Piane makes this bottling of Nebbiolo (85%) and Vespolina (15%). From the importer (not vintage specific): "The mineral composition of the porphyry soil together with the characteristics of the Nebbiolo grapes create in 'Boca' a full expressive wine. Flavors are reminiscent of well-matured wood berries, tobacco and leather with hints of balsamic and citrus fruits. Power and silky elegance develop in the mouth which plays with a slightly noble-bitter finish."
