2009 Castello di Bossi "Girolamo" Merlot Toscana (Elsewhere $64)

94 points Antonio Galloni: "Castello di Bossi's 2009 Merlot Girolamo is undeniably sexy. Plump, juicy and wonderfully expressive, the 2009 captures the very best qualities of the year. Dark cherries, plums, menthol and licorice all jump from the glass in this generous, inviting Tuscan Merlot. There is a lot to love about the 2009, starting with its impeccable balance. The purity of the fruit alone is striking. I am not sure how the 2009 is going to age, but it is drop-dead gorgeous today." (8/2013)94 points James Suckling: "Wow.

2009 Sesta di Sopra Brunello di Montalcino

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."

2009 Mastrojanni Brunello di Montalcino

90 points Antonio Galloni: "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 fruit went into this wine."

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. Vibrant flavors of red and black fruits, pink peppercorn and sweet spices are wonderfully pure and juicy.

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.

2009 Vie di Romans "Piere" Sauvignon Blanc 375ml (Previously $23)

93 points James Suckling: "The nose on this is phenomenal, with intense sliced peaches. Full body and loads of fruit with a long flavorful finish. Drink now." (12/2011)93 points Wine & Spirits: "This grows on a terrace above the north bank of the Isonzo river, where the soils are well-drained gravel and clay. The temperate 2009 vintage created a robust young sauvignon, structured as a grand and age-worthy wine. The texture is supple, carrying pungent fruit scents of pear and nectarine; the finish meshes that fruit with an earthier note. Delicious with veal schnitzel now or after several years in the cellar. ...Read More »

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."

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 »

Fleshy, rich and layered, yet with terrific freshness, the 2009 impresses for its balance and pure vibrancy. Juicy red berries, mint, rose petals, autumn leaves and sweet spices all meld together on the finish. The 2009 is a bit more forward than other recent releases has been, but in this case, that is not a bad thing at all, as the wine is drinking beautifully today."

(2/2014)90 points Wine Enthusiast: "This Brunello opens with a floral and fruit fragrance of red rose, wisteria and berry. The floral sensation continues on the juicy palate along with ripe black cherry, raspberry, and white pepper. It has firm, round tannins and is already accessible so enjoy soon." (5/2014)

This classic Amarone blend is carefully studied to bring optimal appassimento results, with bold intensity, good structure and characteristic aromas of dried fruit and spice.

Darkly concentrated and rich, it sets the stage beautifully for 2009 Barolo thanks to its enormous grace, power and elegance. Where it really wins praise, however, is in the mouth. It shows solid grip and firm tannic tenacity that is bold and muscular without going over the top. It moves steadily over the palate in an exceptional manner.

(11/2012)90 points Antonio Galloni: "The 2009 Pergolaia, a Sangiovese/Merlot/Cabernet Franc blend, is quite beautiful. Floral and medium in body, the 2009 flows across the palate with nuanced fruit and lovely overall balance. This graceful red doesn't have the body or richness of most Maremma wines in this vintage, rather it is a wine of finesse. ( ...Read More »

2009 Ugo Lequio Barbera d'Alba Superiore

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Barbera d'Alba Superiore (aged 18 months in large oak cask) shows just enough spice and tobacco to add that extra layer of intensity and richness that makes Barbera so delicious. Dark fruit, blackberry, tar and cassis spread evenly over the palate. Long barrel aging has helped to soften the variety's naturally high acidity. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2018."

Today, the fruit lies a bit in the background, while the wine's aromatics and overall structure are much more in evidence. I imagine the 2009 will require at least a few more years in bottle to flesh out, but it is quite beautiful, even at this stage. There is a weightless tension in the 2009 that is remarkable."

2009 Ermacora Pignolo Colli Orientali del Friuli

Pignolo is rare grape, native to Friuli and known for being "grumpy" and difficult to grow. Until a few decades ago, it was all but obsolete. The Ermacora family is among the few brave winemakers to replant this grape, and its patience has been rewarded. This is a powerful wine, with tannic heft and great complexity. According to the winemaker: "The aromas are full and fruity, with notes of cherry and ripe plum. The dry taste emphasizes hints of wild berry jam, aromatic spices, and stewed fruits. It is an ideal match for red meat dishes and game."

Vecchie Terre's Chianti is so classic, so elegant, so long...that's so many superlatives that I'm getting tired of writing "so."
