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

100 points Antonio Galloni: "The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino is every bit as thrilling as it was on the many occasions I tasted it from barrel. Black cherry, hard candy, plum, rose petal, menthol and lavender saturate the palate in a sumptuous, racy Brunello endowed with magnificent depth and pedigree. An utterly stunning, sensual wine, the 2010 constantly changes in the glass as it conquers all the senses with an exotic kaleidoscope of aromas, flavors and textures. I remember tasting the 2010 from cask a few years ago when Diego Molinari was too unwell to go down to the cellar. Nor ...Read More »

2010 Biondi Santi Brunello di Montalcino (Pre-Arrival)

96 points Antonio Galloni: "The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Annata is a real knock-out. Rose petals, mint, sweet spices and flowers are some of the first notes that open up in the glass. Almost indescribably beautiful, the 2010 is a classic, austere Biondi Santi Brunello built to age. Although the 2010 is going to require considerable patience, its pedigree is quite apparent today. The 2010 constantly changes in the glass, revealing different shades of its multi-faceted personality, while the long, saline-infused finish is a thing of real beauty."

2008 Elio Grasso "Rüncot" Barolo Riserva (Pre-Arrival)

99 points James Suckling: "This is an absolutely fabulous red, with incredible concentration but polish and refinement. It’s full-bodied, with wonderful depth of fruit and length. Complex, with minerals, dark fruits, plums and currants. Speechless. It sends chills up my spine. What a wine. It goes on for minutes. Hard to believe that it’s better than the 2007, but it is." (9/2014)97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Barolo Riserva Rüncot is an exceptional wine that is only made in the best years. It was produced in 2008, 2010 and 2013. The wine undergoes a 40-day maceration time with four years in oak and one ...Read More »

2011 Antinori "Solaia" Toscana (Previously $220.00) Top Pick!
2011 Antinori "Solaia" Toscana (Previously $220.00)

96 points Antonio Galloni: "Blackberry jam, cassis, grilled herbs and melted road tar meld together in the 2011 Solaia. Another super-exotic, racy 2011 from Antinori, Solaia is supremely beautiful. Mocha, espresso and sage are some of the many notes that add complexity. Hints of white truffle, lavender, smoke and licorice are laced into the exotic, racy finish. In 2011, Solaia has a dollop more of Cabernet Franc in the blend, added to give the wine a touch of freshness. Ripe and flashy to the core, the 2011 needs time to lose some of its youthful exuberance. At times, the 2011 coul ...Read More »

2010 Salvioni Brunello di Montalcino (Pre-Arrival)

97 points Antonio Galloni: "Salvioni's 2010 Brunello di Montalcino is deceptively medium in body and almost Burgundian in style at this stage in its life. Rose petal, cherry pit, smoke and tobacco notes abound as this delicate, understated Brunello very gradually reveals its striking beauty. Unlike so many 2010s, the Salvioni Brunello needs at least a few years in bottle, as it is quite shy and reticent today. Still, there is plenty of the classic Salvioni fruit, bouquet and texture in the glass. Once again, the Salvioni family has crafted one of the most exquisite, pure wines in M ...Read More »

2011 Vietti "Lazzarito" Barolo

95 points Antonio Galloni: "The 2011 Barolo Lazzarito is fabulous in this vintage. Rich, ample and structured, the 2011 is both opulent and savory in style. 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. All the elements come together in the 2011, a wine that has it all. This is ...Read More »

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

97 points James Suckling: "A wine that sneaks up on you. It starts up slowly with dried-berry, chocolate and dried-lemon character. Full body, chewy tannins and a long, long finish. 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. The aromas that characterize the wine are in a school of their own. Instead of the standard red cherry and rose, this expressio ...Read More »

2009 Aldo Conterno "Colonnello" Barolo

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Barolo Colonnello is destined to occupy a special place in my heart as it turned out to be the first sample in my opening blind flight as Italian reviewer with The Wine Advocate. 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. The bouquet opens to wild cherry ...Read More »

2009 Produttori del Barbaresco Barbaresco (3L)

93 points Wine Spectator: "*Highly Recommended* Bright cherry, strawberry, floral, licorice and herbal aromas and flavors highlight this fragrant, elegant red, which is silky and pure, with fine ripe tannins for support. Shows excellent length, with an aftertaste of fruit, spice and mineral. Best from 2015 through 2028." (4/2014)92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Barbaresco shows personality and good cheer with a good dose of dried fruit and savory spice.

2011 Montevertine "Le Pergole Torte" Toscana Rosso

97 points Antonio Galloni: "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.

Full body, super integrated and chewy tannins, and a long, flavorful finish. Impressive. Best ever from here. Better after 2018." (1/2015)93 points Antonio Galloni: "The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino is striking. Beams of supporting tannin provide a firm backbone of structure as this deeply expressive Brunello shows off its personality. Savory herbs, dark red cherry, lavender, smoke and licorice open up in the glass, adding considerable layers of complexity. The tannins could use ...Read More »

2009 Aldo Conterno "Cicala" Barolo

94 points Antonio Galloni: "An aromatically beguiling wine, the 2009 Barolo Cicala is laced with dark plums, truffles, tar, incense and a host of other balsamic-infused aromas. 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."

2010 Poggio di Sotto Brunello di Montalcino (Pre-Arrival)

A little tight now so better in 2017 when it opens a little." (1/2015)94 points Antonio Galloni: "he 2010 Brunello di Montalcino is in no mood to show all its cards today. This is a decidedly dark, brooding Brunello for Poggio di Sotto. In 2010, the fruit is quite dark, which suggests a late harvest, perhaps pushed to the limit. At the same time, there is plenty of underlying structure and tannin. This is going to be a fascinating Brunello to follow over the ...Read More »

2011 Vietti "Brunate" Barolo

Need another two or three years to soften." (4/2015)93 points Antonio Galloni: "A dark, exotic Barolo, the 2011 Brunate boasts tons of density and volume. Black cherry, plum, spice, licorice, new leather and menthol are some of the many nuances that flesh out in the glass. Ultimately, though, the 2011 is largely defined by the texture and amplitude of the year. Brunate is often slow out of the gate, so I will not be surprised if that is ...Read More »

It just makes you jump to attention. So lively and gorgeous. Drink or hold." (1/2015)94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tassi's 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Franci opens to medium body and savory tones of Indian spice, dried fruit, licorice and dark cola. The balsam herb intensity is very attractive. This wine veers toward the ethereal and away from the obvious fruit and berry tones you get with less sophisticated Sangiovese.

Amazing aromas of blueberries and flowers, with black truffles and pie. Foie gras, mushrooms and white truffles too. Powerful, with great depth of gorgeous fruit and ultra-fine tannins. It fills your mouth with fruit and ripe tannins. Complex and long. A breathtaking wine. Truly glorious. Better in 2015."

2010 Pieve Santa Restituta (Gaja) "Rennina" Brunello di Montalcino (Pre-Arrival)

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "An outstanding surprise, the 2010 Brunello di Montalcino is a monumental wine. The Rennina single vineyard is said to be more feminine compared to the bolder fruit sourced in the nearby Sugarille cru. But in the 2010 vintage, you definitely get a compelling sense of power, density and extraction. What distinguishes the wine is the delicate mineral signature that appears through the thick texture of the fruit. It's like background music that gives cozy ambiance to an elaborately furnished ballroom. I consider the 2010 Rennina a masterpiece and, again, I j ...Read More »

2010 Ceretto "Bricco Rocche" Barolo

96 points Antonio Galloni: "Sweet tobacco, freshly cut flowers, rose petals and sweet red berries, all framed by silky tannins are the signatures in Ceretto's 2010 Barolo Bricco Rocche. Graced with exquisite finesse, the Bricco Rocche offers a little more textural polish than the Prapò at this early stage. At the same time, elements of intrigue remain, suggesting the 2010 isn't showing all of its cards just yet. Overall, this is a fairly dark Barolo for the site at this stage, although the wine does open up very nicely with time in the glass. Sweet floral and spice notes are woven ...Read More »

Time in bottle has given the 2004 a bit more volume, but the wine is stunningly beautiful, as it has always been. Rose petals, dark red cherries, mint and sweet spices give the finish its textured, super-expressive feel.

95 points Antonio Galloni: "The 1997 Flaccianello della Pieve wraps around the palate with endless layers of dark fruit. In 1997 the grapes were very small because the intense heat of the year dehydrated the fruit. Dark red berries, pomegranate, spices, smoke, licorice, anise and rose petals burst from the glass with notable energy, power and grace. Even with all of its intensity, the 1997 is beautifully balanced from start to finish. This racy, full-bodied Flaccianello can be enjoyed today or cellared for up to a decade."

This is another beautiful Barbaresco from Angelo Gaja, but it will require patience as it is tightly wound today. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2030." (10/2008)92 points Wine Spectator: "Subtle aromas of rose and blackberry follow through to a full body, with fine tannins and a fresh finish. Chewy. Unfolds on the palate. Layer ...Read More »

1982 Tenuta San Guido "Sassicaia"
Bid on this bottle of 1982 Tenuta San Guido "Sassicaia" (90WS). 90 points Wine Spectator: "Rather intense, in a fresh way, reflecting perhaps the relatively high acidity in this wine from the start. Of medium to full body, it bursts with cassis and black cherry flavors and a touch of Sassicaia's characteristic mineral persona.--Sassicaia vertical. Drink now." (07/96)

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 Fuligni Brunello di Montalcino 1.5L (Pre-Arrival)

98 points James Suckling: "I really appreciate the dark-berry and burnt-orange aromas that follow through to a full body, very integrated tannins and a ripe, juicy fruit character. Savory, succulent and salty. Hints of chocolate and salted nuts. So juicy and gorgeous. A fabulous red. Drink now but also hold for years ahead." (1/2015)94 points Antonio Galloni: "The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino is all about balance. Remarkably seamless for a young Brunello, the 2010 is also quite expressive and open at this stage, which is one of the signatures of the vintage. Bright red stone fruits, wild flowers and cinnamon a ...Read More »

2004 Rocche Dei Manzoni Barolo "Big'd Big" (1.5L)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The estate's 2004 Barolo Big 'd Big is an expansive wine loaded with primary fruit. Although it doesn't show the complexity of the Santo Stefano it does offer tons of fruit in a big, powerful style. Here too the oak is very well integrated. The wine shows remarkable balance and poise with awesome textural richness and power. Notes of smoke, tobacco, earthiness and licorice emerge with air, but this remains a distinctly fruit-driven style of Barolo typical of the Mosconi vineyard. (AG)" (10/2008)92 points Wine Spectator: "Very floral, with hints of strawberry. Delicate and aromatic ...Read More »

2010 Banfi Brunello di Montalcino 1.5L (Pre-Arrival)

95 points James Suckling: "Fabulous aromas of dried rose petal, orange peel, oyster shell and hints of dark fruits. Full body, very fine tannins with a mineral, berry and orange-peel and Tuscan-dust undertone. A structured, salty, savory finish. Better in 2017." (1/2015)92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Castello Banfi's 2010 Brunello di Montalcino is one of the ripest wines I have tasted from this vintage. The bouquet opens to chewy tones of cherry or raspberry preserves with dried prunes and figs at the back. This is no surprise considering the softly sloping, sea-facing vineyards located in the lower part of the ...Read More »
