96 points James Suckling: "Cool and perfumed 2016 Brunello with black cherries, flowers and crushed stones. Medium to full body with firm, chewy tannins, yet polished and very silky.

2016 Ferrero Brunello di Montalcino
Top Pick!
94 points James Suckling: "A full-bodied, juicy red with black-cherry, walnut and nutmeg aromas. There's a distinct roasted-beetroot and currant character to this, too. Very juicy on the palate with ripe tannins. Some bitter berries on the finish. Drink after 2024." (10/2020) 93 points Vinous: "The 2016 Brunello di Montalcino from Ferrero is earthy and packed full of ripe berries and woodland herbs in a slightly rustic yet wildly appealing way. The textures are silky and refined, ushering in a mix of savory cherry sauce and hints of cranberry offset by...

This has become a go-to favorite for customers and staff alike at K&L. Priced at a level that allows for corks to pop any old time it suits you, the Montechiara phenomenon continues to gain followers by the day. See for yourself why this value sparkler is getting so much attention.

91 points James Suckling: "Plum, strawberry and cherry aromas and flavors with firm tannins that are chewy, yet fine grained. Needs a little time to soften. Better after 2022." (11/2020) K&L Notes: In the last decade-plus, the wines from Mount Etna have wowed the wine world. Don’t be surprised if they are new to you, because it takes time to overcome the existing set of wine lists and store shelves. This wine will give you a basic course in Nerello Mascalese, the predominant grape in Etna Rosso. The wines seem to have a bit of Burgundy and a bit of Bar...

Vinous: "The 2018 Chianti Classico Cavaliere d'Oro is a soft, fleshy wine to drink now and over the next handful of years. Dried cherry, cedar, tobacco and mint give this open-knit Chianti Classico a good bit of immediacy. The 2018 is not hugely complex, but it will drink well right out of the gate. (AG)" (09/2021)

2017 Fratelli Barale Barolo
Top Pick!
93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Delicately scented, this medium-bodied wine has aromas of red berries, grilled herbs, sunbaked earth and truffle. Savory and linear, the palate offers juicy Morello cherry, blood orange and star anise alongside taut, fine-grained tannins before closing on a saline note. While you won't need years before you can enjoy this, it also promises good midterm aging potential. (KO)" (07/2021)
Price: $36.99

The 2018 Il Valentiano Rosso di Montalcino aged for 12 months in French oak, and due to a pleasantly warm vintage, is showing a lively aromatic freshness. This baby Brunello is made with 100% organically grown Sangiovese Grosso, handpicked from vines planted in the 1960s, in the hills just south of Montalcino. Founded by Dino Ciacci in 1925, Campaperi, a Tuscan term for a field of pear trees, is named for the wild pear trees that line the edges of the estate’s vineyard. Dino’s grandson, Fabbiano Ciacci, makes the wine and his wife, Valentina, is the cel...

2016 Sesta di Sopra Brunello di Montalcino
Top Pick!
97 points Decanter: "Ettore Spina and Enrica Bandirola purchased the Sesta di Sopra estate as a holiday home in the late 1980s. After restoring the farmhouse, they replanted a total of 2.8 hectares of vines and produced their first wine from the 1999 vintage. The 2016 leads with captivating aromas of dry earth, tea, violet and lavender, and the palate is equally compelling. Battonage of the lees during ageing gives a rather sumptuous palate with perceptively talc-like dusty tannins sitting underneath the fruit. Iron and stone impart complexity to this se...

" (08/2020) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "With a fun, sweet note on the close, the Castelli Martinozzi 2018 Rosso di Montalcino shows bright cherry and plum that appear with vivid intensity. The Rosso category of Sangiovese from Montalcino is almost always a great value wine to pair with simple home-cooked meals of pasta or the family meatloaf recipe, and this release of 25,0...

A little tight and reserved, but pretty and precise. " (10/2020) 93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Wild berry, crushed herb, new leather and truffle aromas emerge from the glass. The juicy, savory palate offers red cherry, crushed raspberry, licorice and a hint of grilled porcini framed in taut, polished tannins. Tangy acidity keeps it bright. *Editors' Choice* (KO) " (03/2021)

92 points Vinous: "The 2018 Rosso di Montalcino makes itself known with a captivating and layered display of sour cherries and animal musk deepening further with crushed dried roses, minty herbs and a dusting of savory spice. It’s silky and pliant, yet energy remains high throughout. The 2018 Rosso showcases a vivid and pure display of wild strawberry with sweet tannins building toward the close. This is lifted and feminine in feel, tapering off classically dry and poised with tactile mineral tones and a hint of licorice lingering long. The 2018 is a har...

The Barbera grapes for this wine were grown in vineyards dating back to the early 19th century. It's a vibrant ruby red in the glass with a dry, full body. Thanks to the long growing season in this northern part of Italy, the wine develops gorgeous acid that makes it a perfect accompaniment to roasted and braised meats.

Sorelle Bronca Prosecco di Valdobbiadene Extra Dry
Top Pick!
91 points Vinous: "Wonderfully balanced and full of character, the NV Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore Extra Dry displays a bouquet of crushed yellow apples with savory herbs and white smoke. It’s smooth in texture and gently sweet, blending ripe orchard fruits and spices with notes of candied ginger. This cleans up remarkably well, becoming dry and almost savory in character; yet above all else, it’s refreshing.

Vinous: "A gorgeous yet slightly earthy mix of violets, geranium, crushed blackberry and wet stone wafts up from the 2019 SP68. It’s soft and juicy in nature, balanced by tart woodland berries and bitter herbal notes. This turns almost salty through the finale, tapering off to peppery inner florals and a spritz of sour citrus. The SP68 is a blend of 70% Frappato and 30% Nero d’Avola that ferments with indigenous yeast and then refines for six months in concrete prior to bottling.

" (10/2021) K&L Notes: Dario Ermacora was one of our first Italian Direct Imports. His wines have always been textbook, classic, and archetypal for Friulian whites: understated, balanced, with a long finish. His winery is in the Colli Orientali del Friuli, or the Eastern Hills of Friuli, a few scant kilometers from the Slovenian border. Most of Friuli is a flat, glaciated plain ru...

96 points Vinous: "The 2017 Giorgio Primo is fabulous. Inky, deep and pulsing with energy, the 2017 has so much to offer. Most surprisingly of all, it is quite reticent and closed, which is so unusual for this wine. Dark red/purplish berry fruit, leather, cedar, spice, tobacco and espresso add a good deal of aromatic intensity, with plenty of Cabernet Sauvignon savoriness. The 2017 is much less forthcoming on the palate, where it remains unyielding, at least today. (AG)" (06/2020) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This wine has a very special s...

95 points Wine Enthusiast: "Rose, red berry and camphor aromas are front and center on this linear, firmly structured Barolo.

We've been keeping an eye on the Torti family since we met them years ago in Italy and have been fans ever since. Their Pinot Noir is a rare gem and a champion for the varietal in Northern Italy.

An elegant Nebbiolo-based blend from a small estate in Piemonte. Young vines, no oak, just a deliciously drinkable Italian red to accompany a steamy plate of pasta — or roast chicken, as K&L's Italian wine buyer, Greg St. Clair, would have it: "Over the past couple of decades, the region of Alto Piemonte has become a force, producing some of the most interesting Nebbiolo-based wines in Piedmont.

It coats the glass with a deep purple sheen while wafting up a dark and alluring bouquet of currants, raisins, black licorice and a lifting note of spiced citrus. There are depths of velvety texture here, offset by juicy acids and tart red fruits that saturate all they touch, leaving a complex coating of savory spices, minerals and fine tannins.

2018 Livio Sassetti "Pertimali" Montecucco Rosso

91 points Vinous: "There’s something dark, animalistic and wild about the 2018 Rosso Montecucco. It’s an intense and energetic expression, yet powerful, showing crushed blackberries and wild herbs spiked with a twang of sour citrus. The textures are silky and pliant with masses of ripe fruits and wild berries offset by penetrating minerals and brisk acids. This tapers off long and lightly structured.
