2016 Tormaresca "Neprica" Puglia
Top Pick!
Wine Enthusiast: "This blend of 50% Negroamaro, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Primitivo offers a bright, zesty nose of mixed berries alongside lifted pepper and graphite accents. There's a tense, grippy feel to the tannins, with bright shots of acidity propelling the crunchy berry flavors along. A light cherry pit note extends on the finish. *Best Buy*" (11/2019) Wine Spectator: "A bright, light- to medium-bodied red, with light, creamy tannins and a fruity mix of candied cherry, crushed raspberry, bay leaf and orange peel flavors. (AN)" (06/2019) K...

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.
Price: $10.99

95 points James Suckling: "Aromatic and pretty with cherry, spice, walnut and light chocolate character on the nose. Medium to full body, round and chewy tannins and a flavorful finish. Impressive structure. " (07/2020)

2012 Valdicava "Madonna del Piano" Brunello di Montalcino Riserva
Top Pick!
98 points James Suckling: "A complex red with rose petals, violets, crushed stones and cherries follows through to a full body and chewy tannins that are poised and polished. Extremely long and intense. A top wine for the vintage. " (04/2018) 96 points Wine Spectator: "This is opulent and powerful, offering black cherry, black currant, plum, leather, iron and tobacco flavors boosted by the racy acidity. Overall, this feels firm and complex, with a long finish. Not your typical style from the northern part of the Brunello di Montalcino zone, yet compell...

Sorelle Bronca Prosecco di Valdobbiadene Extra Dry
Top Pick!
The Bronca sisters grow their own fruit on steep hillside vineyards, then make base wine and perform the secondary (sparkling) fermentation on non-vintage batches three or four times a year to ensure freshness. Low yields and hillside-grown fruit ensure that the wine has good concentration and acidity. This one's a clean, crisp and utterly refreshing sparkler that is one of our favorites.
Price: $19.99

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Delicate scents evoking forest floor, crushed mint, leather and rose form the nose. On the linear palate, fresh acidity and taut polished tannins accompany red cherry, cranberry and tobacco. An orange-zest note lingers on the close (KO)" (07/2020) K&L Notes: Monica Larner in Wine Advocate: "One of the oldest estates in the Langhe, Fratelli Barale was founded in 1870, shortly after the Barolo denomination was created with the help of Marchesi Falletti and founding father of modern Italy, Count of Cavour, Camillo Benso. Sergio...

90 points Vinous: "Pale straw green. Delicate mineral nuances dominate the white flower and green apple notes on the nose and in the mouth. Linear and with an austere quality to its bright, high acid but harmonious personality. Finishes long and very clean with hints of nectarine and sage. Lovely entry-level Soave Classico that boasts sneaky concentration. Mostly Garganega with a little Trebbiano di Soave. (ID)" (07/2019)

2015 Fuligni Brunello di Montalcino
Top Pick!
100 points James Suckling: "The purity of fruit on the nose is perfection with cherries, crushed raspberries, mineral, pumice and citrus fruit. Dust, too. Full body. Powerful, chewy tannins. So long and muscular, yet polished and formed. Most structured Brunello I have ever had from here. A wine for decades. " (10/2019) 98 points Wine Enthusiast: "Rose, violet, camphor, wild berry and aromatic herb aromas are front and center in this gorgeous red. It’s juicy, enveloping and delicious, doling out succulent black cherry, raspberry compote, licorice and b...

2017 La Massa "La Massa" Toscana
Top Pick!
93 points James Suckling: "A plush red with sweet-berry and spice aromas and flavors. Hints of vanilla. Full body. Lush and delicious. Needs a little time to come together, but already very attractive." (07/2019) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Beautiful and seamless, the 2017 La Massa beats the heat. There is little sign of a warm vintage in this blend of 70% Sangiovese, 15% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon plus Alicante Bouschet. The wine turned out terrifically bright and nuanced with its light spice and blackberry notes. Present it along...

This year has been really difficult for Italian producers, restaurants, where most wine is sold in Italy have been closed or partially open so for producers the local market has dried up. I know a producer whose winery was still full of wine but he needed the tank space for the new vintage, he decided, I was very skeptical by the way, to blend all of his white wines together and sell it all at a tremendous loss (the whites normally sell in the $25-$30 range) just to empty his cellar. I should not have been so skeptical the wine is predominantly Pinot Bia...

2015 Caparzo "La Casa" Brunello di Montalcino
Top Pick!
97 points James Suckling: "Beautiful combination here of balanced orange and lemon rind and riper glazed cherries, terracotta and scorched earth. Mushroom too. Tightly wound and elegant with a persistent core of mineral acidity and finely wrapped-up tannins." (10/2019) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Caparzo's 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Vigna La Casa opens to a very fine and precise bouquet that is carefully assembled with crisp berry notes, smoke, tar, licorice and toasted almond. The wine remains very tight and crisp overall, but it does c...
Price: $64.99

94 points International Wine Review: "The 2015 Castello Banfi Brunello di Montalcino displays a pale color but powerful essence, this young Brunello shows notes of orange juice, citron, red plums and cinnamon that all take shape beautifully. Full body, soft and juicy tannins and a balanced finish. While this is accessible today, it should show even more with some time. (RV)" (03/2020) 94 points James Suckling: "So many spices line the nose here including cinnamon, cardamom, aniseed and walnuts. But there’s no shortage of red plums and dried cherries ei...

Monica Larner writes: "One of the oldest estates in the Langhe, Fratelli Barale was founded in 1870, shortly after the Barolo denomination was created with the help of Marchesi Falletti and founding father of modern Italy, Count of Cavour, Camillo Benso. Sergio Barale and his daughters manage the estate today. The various expressions of Barolo are all aged from two to three years in botte grande."

2015 Villa Poggio Salvi Brunello di Montalcino
Top Pick!
96 points International Wine Review: "This is a gorgeous wine from Villa Poggio Salvi in this vintage. This opens to distinctive aromatics with notes of raspberries, currants, rose petals, wild myrtle with a beautiful citrus undertone, which immediately dispenses character and authority. On the palate this is full-bodied and extracted, with powerful tannins, which are velvety and beautifully blend harmoniously into the concentrated finish that expresses all the fruit quality. Already extremely compelling now, however this stunning Brunello should become ...

" (06/2019) 98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Fontalloro is the best vintage of this landmark wine that I have tasted thus far. This is a very elegant vintage, with more volume in the mouth and precise notes of tar, licorice, camphor ash, resin and Indian spice. In a race between the highly competitive 2015 and 2016 vintages, I give a slight advantage to this wi...
Price: $59.99

Vinous: "Vivid red. Simple and fresh aromas of flowers and red berries. Briary and zesty, delivering medium-bodied flavors of redcurrant and flint that finish with good length, polish and salinity. (ID)" (04/2020) Wine Spectator: "Aromas of iris, exotic spice and plum lead the nose along with a whiff of tilled soil. The round, accessible palate offers juicy Marasca cherry, crushed strawberry, star anise and espresso alongside relaxed, slightly dusty tannins. Firm acidity keeps it light on its feet. (KO)" (05/2020)

Gelmino and Cristina Dal Bosco started their winery in 2002 when the family decided to stop selling their grapes to the local co-op and make wine themselves. The winery and vineyards are located in the town of Brognoligo in the heart of the Soave Classico production area that is limited only to the communes of Soave and Monteforte d’Alpone in the province of Verona. The Montesei bottling is 100% Garganega which is harvested by hand and vinified in stainless steel. The color of the wine is a yellow straw, and the profile bright and floral with mineral det...
Price: $12.99

92 points James Suckling: "A dense and layered red with lots of chocolate, berry and wood character. Full and chewy. Yet, the tannins are not harsh or overdone. Give it a year or two to soften." (09/2018)
Price: $29.99

91 points James Suckling: "A juicy, very ripe red with plum and currant character. Full body, round, chewy tannins and a flavorful finish that verges on jammy, but is still attractive. Drink now." (07/2019)
Price: $17.99

The Mothia winery is in the most westerly portion of Sicily in the city of Marsala. This 100% Nero d'Avola comes from a vineyard whose toes touch the Mediterranean, giving it a bit of saline character. The winery produces both whites and reds as well as Marsala.
Price: $19.99

2018 Castello di Volpaia "Citto" Toscana
Top Pick!
This is the second label of Volpaia's famed Chiantis, and Citto translates to "young boy." Sourced from estate vineyards in Chianti Classico and Maremma, this blend of mostly Sangiovese with a touch of Cabernet Sauvignon is an affordable introduction to this stalwart estate.
Price: $14.99

This has been the #1 selling Italian wine for more than two decades at K&L! You can't get that kind of continued success without a supremely fantastic quality-to-price ratio. The southern Tuscan coast is a wonderful location for winemaking, with stable temperatures and a solid history of quality, yet no fame and fortune. Incredibly priced bargains come out of the region, and the proof is in the bottle. This wine is wonderful, soft, forward and easy-to-drink Sangiovese with an enticing mixture of cherry, plum and earth. Eminently drinkable.

(07/2020) 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Fattoria le Pupille 2018 Saffredi borrows quite a bit from all of the grapes that make up the blend (Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot). These balanced results open to a roun...

2015 Val di Suga Brunello di Montalcino
Top Pick!
92 points Decanter: "As of the 2015, all of Val di Suga's wines spend less time in wood to curb Sangiovese's tendency to oxidise. This wine brings together grapes from all three of Val di Suga's distinct vineyard sites in equal proportions. Fragrant orange and raspberry notes progress into darker, earthier nuances. There is a saline edge and a gentle grip holding together lush fruit. It's a touch short but still bright and tangy on the finish. (MM)" (02/2020) 92 points James Suckling: "A dense and linear red with medium to full body, chewy tannins and ...

Top Pick!
93 points James Suckling: "Perfumed and fresh with cherries, cedar and hints of dried flowers. It’s medium-bodied with fine tannins and a long, direct finish. Really lively and fresh. Very typical for a top Chianti Classico. " (05/2020) 92 points Vinous: "The 2018 Chianti Classico Berardenga is endowed with so much class. In 2018, the Classico is a bit more restrained than it can be. That mid-weight sense of structure, though, gives the wine quite a bit of early appeal. Even so, I would cellar the 2018 for a few years, as all the elements haven't fully...

Poderi Luigi Einaudi dates back to 1897 and is one of the most historic producers in Dogliani. This bottling of Vigna Tecc was first introduced in 2005, and while the focus is on Barolo, their other wines, such as this Dolcetto, receive the same care and attention. The Vigna Tecc Dogliani Superiore is aged in large oak and cement and is typically quite dark-fruited in character and bold in body.

2016 Belisario "Cambrugiano" Verdicchio di Matelica Riserva

94 points Decanter: "Excellence from a good co-op: fine, lifted, mineral-toned fruit joins crisp acidity and a long, savoury finish. (MG)" (03/2020) K&L Notes: Producer's notes: "It is the wine with which Belisario has experienced the greatest emotions. It was the first Verdicchio in the Riserva type. Produced since 1988 only with Verdicchio grapes vinified with the method of cryomaceration. It matures in steel and partly in toasted oak barrels for at least a year and is refined for another year in the bottle. The complexity of the production is the c...

It’s already showing beautifully but will also offer years of pleasure. (KO)" (07/2020) 94 points Vinous: "The 2016 Barolo Castellero captures all the beguiling nuance of this Monforte d’Alba site.

2016 Einaudi "Bussia" Barolo (Pre-Arrival) (Pre-Arrival)
Top Pick!
95 points Vinous: "The 2016 Barolo Bussia is laced with a whole range of sweet floral and balsamic overtones, along with striking underpinnings of structure and tannin that give the wine its shape. A wine of energy, tension and nuance, the Bussia is just superb in 2016. Time in the glass brings out its ample, expansive richness. I can't wait to see how it ages.

Aged in stainless steel for six months prior to release, the Ibidini Nero d'Avola is a classic example of the no-nonsense, broad appeal of this varietal. Fresh and vibrant red fruits form the profile, making this an ideal pairing with simple meat dishes and a variety of charcuterie.
