2010 Argiano Brunello di Montalcino (Pre-Arrival)

98 points James Suckling: "An unforgiving and powerfully structured wine with fabulous grilled meat and granite stone character with dried berry and flower petal. Full body, chewy and intense.

2008 Francesco Rinaldi "Le Brunate" Barolo

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Barolo Le Brunate is quite a bit richer, deeper and more powerful than the Cannubbio, as one might reasonably expect. Here the fruit boasts tons of pure resonance and stuffing while never losing its essential classicism. Plums, black cherries, leather, tar and licorice meld together, supported by firm yet beautifully integrated tannins. The 2008 Brunate is an explosive wine just waiting to emerge.

2011 Ornellaia "Le Serre Nuove" Bolgheri

94 points Antonio Galloni: "The 2011 Le Serre Nuove dell'Ornellaia comes across as tight and shut down today. There is plenty of depth in the glass, but less of the appeal I saw just a few months ago. The high tannins of the vintage and the relatively large amount of Petit Verdot (14%) are both very marked at this stage in the wine's life. Readers holding the 2011 are best off cellaring their bottles for at least another 1-2 years. The 2011 Le Serre Nuove is a powerhouse.

2010 Il Poggione Brunello di Montalcino (Pre-Arrival)

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino is a striking wine that shows uncompromising varietal pureness, albeit in a most concentrated and elaborate form. This is what great Sangiovese is all about. There's so much happening on the nose and the wine brings you to cherry, spice, licorice, cured meat, pressed rose and grilled meat in equal measure. No one element overpowers the next. The mouthfeel is also tight and bright with the kind of fruit intensity that promises long cellar aging.

Tight and structured. Try it in 2016."

2010 Pecchenino "Le Coste" Barolo

The Le Coste is a bit more primary, perfumed, sweet and pliant-especially through the mid-palate than the San Giuseppe. Sinewy, powerful and tannic, the Le Coste is what traditionally made Barolo is all about. The 2010 spent three years in cask."

This wine definitely leaves a lasting impression and speaks in high volumes for the 2010 vintage.

Dark, powerful and intense, the Vigna del Fiore blossoms in the glass with notable intensity and breadth.

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).

2010 San Filippo Brunello di Montalcino (Pre-Arrival)

97 points James Suckling: "Extremely complex aromas of mushroom, stone, chalk, dark fruit and lightly dried bark or tea. Full-bodied, with powerful, layered tannins. Muscular and intense. It needs loads of time to soften: better in 2017." (1/2015)93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino is a dense and voluptuous expression with opulent fruit tones and equally intense oak nuances. The wine ages in botte grande for 26 months and the slow oxidation has done much to increase the aromatic intensity of the wine. Bold and chewy with thick lines, this wine also shows tight wood astringency that sho ...Read More »

2006 Caiarossa "Caiarossa" Toscana

96 points James Suckling: "A bouquet of berries, flowers and minerals, taking on some spice. Fascinating blend. Full-bodied, with plenty of pretty fruit and lightly chewy tannins. Sangiovese, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache, Syrah, Petit Verdot and Mourvedre." (6/2013)93 points Wine Spectator: "A fascinating blend, with a bouquet of flowers, berries, nuts and mineral. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins and pretty fruit. The wood comes through a little on the palate, but this is going to develop wonderfully. Sangiovese, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache, Syrah, Petit Verdo ...Read More »

2009 Proprieta Sperino Lessona

94 points Antonio Galloni: "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." (3/2014)92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Aromas of dark berry, menthol, crushed violet, mint and pipe tobacco open this elegant expression of Nebbiolo. The palate offers black cherry, ripe raspberry, ...Read More »

2009 Schiavenza "Prapò" Barolo

94 points Wine Spectator: "Warm and generous, this red balances notes of plum, spice and leather with high-toned elements of cherry and flowers. A vibrant wine, with a long aftertaste bolstered by dusty tannins. Top 100 Wines 2013." (12/2013)93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good medium red. Red cherry, fresh herbs, smoke and flinty minerals on the nose. Saline, savory, subtly rich red fruit flavors show an almost creamy sweetness with air. But this is tightly coiled and energetic on the back half, finishing with inviting sweet red berries and soil tones and terrific mineral reserve. Really saturates the mouth ...Read More »

2010 Ca' del Baio "Pora" Barbaresco

92 points James Suckling: "There's a clarity of fruit to this wine, with ripe-strawberry and cherry aromas that follow through to full to medium body with ultra-fine tannins and a clean finish. Racy and bright." (3/2015)90 points Antonio Galloni: "The 2010 Barbaresco Pora is sweet, layered and perfumed in the glass, with hints of hard candy, wild flowers, sweet and mint. This is an unusually sweet, almost candied wine for the year, perhaps because of the slightly greater influence of French oak tonneaux. There is good immediacy here, but the Pora doesn't reach the level of the best wines here. The rationale f ...Read More »

2009 Campo alla Sughera "Arnione" Bolgheri DOC

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot, this shows a dark, masculine personality, and it offers bitter chocolate, dark cherry, blackberry, rum cake, leather and black licorice notes. Dark fruit on the palate is backed by well-structured tannins, which suggest impressive longevity." (4/2013)92 points Antonio Galloni: "Chocolate, raspberry jam, cloves, licorice and sweet French oak emerge from the 2009 Arnione, a Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot/Petit Verdot blend. In keeping with the style of the year, the 2009 is ripe, racy and exuberant, all of which sugges ...Read More »

2010 Mauro Molino Barolo La Serra

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2010 Barolo La Serra is a toasty, spice-driven Barolo with baritone aromas of dark fruit, prune, licorice, cola, crushed rose, leather, cigar smoke and ground clove. It delivers finely-textured on the palate with a balanced dose of fresh acidity and drying tannins on the close. It has all the qualities for a long cellar evolution. Drink: 2017-2032." (7/2014)92 points James Suckling: "Aromas of white truffles, berries and flowers follow through to a full body, with round, velvety tannins and a clean finish. Very approachable now but better in 2016." (4/2014)90 points Wine & Spirits: "With the chocolatey ta ...Read More »

1999 Paitin "Sori' Paitin" Barbaresco Vecchie Vigne

93 points Wine Spectator: "Impressive wine. Rich aromas of ripe fruit and freshly ground spices. Full-bodied, with big, velvety tannins and a long, long finish. A blockbuster, yet very polished. Best after 2003." (11/2002)92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Deep red-ruby. Aromas of roasted strawberry, earth, smoke and mint. Smooth on entry, then chewy and deep in the middle, with a note of camphor. Easier to taste today than the normale owing to its sheer depth of texture. Finishes warm, rich and long, with tannins nicely supported by the wine's strong material. Very impressive Barbaresco, from thoroughly ripe fruit. ...Read More »
