2018 Petrolo "Galatrona" Toscana (Pre-Arrival) (Pre-Arrival)
Top Pick!
98 points James Suckling: "Aromas of blackberries, black olives, green olive, and violets. It’s really aromatic. Full-bodied, yet so precise and polished with creamy, layered tannins that caress your palate. It’s extremely persistent and goes on for minutes. Only 40% new wood. Really balanced. All about purity and complexity From organically grown grapes."

2015 Tenuta di Sesta Brunello di Montalcino
Top Pick!
94 points International Wine Review: "The 2015 Tenuta di Sesta Brunello di Montalcino begins with a gorgeous aromatic profile of cherries, orange zest, grapefruit juice and fresh ginger which all come together beautifully in this young Brunello. On the palate this is medium-to full-bodied, structured with soft, round tannins and a precise finish that is solid and compact. This will be accessible young but should develop also nicely with some short-term cellaring and drink beautifully for years to come. RV" (03/2020) 94 points James Suckling: "Quite und...

Best ever from here." (09/2019) 91 points Vinous: "Hailing from Villa S. Restituta and raised entirely in Slavonian oak botti, the 2015 Castelli Martinozzi Brunello di Montalcino displays masses of spicy cherry, berry fruits, peppery florals, and dark minerality, with something of an exotic, almost-volatile edginess and animal rusticity.

Wine Enthusiast: "Honeysuckle, honeydew melon and white-peach aromas follow through to the somewhat sweet palate along with a note of glazed orange zest. Fresh acidity lifts the rich candied flavors. (KO)" (12/2017) K&L Notes: 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 a...

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "This delicious white shows the surprising potential of native grape Catarratto when grown and vinified with care and precision. Opening with delicate scents of spring blossom and grapefruit along with an inviting whiff of bread dough, the savory palate features white peach, green melon and a note of white almond. Crisp acidity and a tangy mineral note suggesting oyster shell give it a bright, mouthwatering close. *Editors’ Choice* (KO)" (09/2020) K&L Notes: Fruity, dry, saline refresher from Sicily.

98 points Vinous: "Castellare's I Sodi di San Niccolò is the single most overlooked high-end wine in Tuscany today. The 2016 picks up where the 2015 left off. A rush of inky dark fruit, lavender, spice, licorice, gravel, blueberry and menthol builds as the 2016 shows off its exceptional balance and pedigree. Readers will have to be patient, as the 2016 needs a few years in bottle to fully come together. Even so, the 2016 has been nothing less than spectacular on the two occasions I have tasted it so far. In a word: monumental. (AG)" (09/2020) 95 points...

This simply delicious Dolcetto d’Alba is one of the Langhe’s most overlooked wines. You might think that Barolo producers are drinking, well, Barolo, every night. But actually they drink a lot of Dolcetto and Barbera. Barolo is a special occasion wine. This wine is delicious and full of dark chocolate, leather, and has a tannic structure. It’s a wonderful food wine for charcuterie, cheese, or a plate full of tajarin with butter and sage. Just remember to serve it at cellar temperature. One of the original Barolo estates, Fratelli Barale's history dates...

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)
Price: $16.99

93 points James Suckling: "A subtle white with white pepper, thyme, citrus and quartz and other minerals. What this really trades in is minerality, whereby flinty and stoney aromas are conveyed in a linear streak of acidity. Medium-bodied and medium-long on the finish." (04/2019) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This is the wine that best embodies the identity and personality of this iconic farming cooperative in Alto Adige.

This wine is made about 50 miles northeast of Turin near lake Viverone in the Canavese DOC. The wine is made of 95% Nebbiolo, with Barbera and Freisa making up the other 5% of the blend. Aged briefly in barrels for 3 months. Fun to drink, and so full of flavor, but without the harsh tannins some Nebbiolo wines have when they are young.

The Fèlsina 2008 Vin Santo del Chianti Classico is a true work of art, and I recommend that you sit back to savor every single special sip of this traditional sweet wine from Tuscany. The bouquet offers thick layers of candied fruit, apricot, honey, brown sugar and maple syrup. It is sweet, but in a delicate way. It provides enough tangy fruit, freshness, spice and toasted nut to magically appear less sweet than it ...

The Rocca family has lived in the Ronchi vineyard since the 1950s. They own about a third of the 43-acre Ronchi vineyard, (along with three other producers). Vineyard age is always something people talk about, but there’s constant replanting going on. That’s especially so in small vineyard holdings where there is a mix of new and old, so they always have something to produce. The Azienda Agricola Ronchi is aged in a mixture of large Slavonian oak botti and smaller barrels; this is the new trend for many Nebbiolo producers who have one foot in the old wor...

96 points Decanter: "With vineyards between Sant'Angelo in Colle and Castelnuovo dell'Abate on the inner edge of the Sesta district, Lisini's vineyards are cleansed by constant breezes from the Tuscan Coast. Stony soils with an important underpinning of limestone as well as elevations over 300 metres help preserve freshness in their wines. The 2015 is beautifully fragrant, almost exotic in character. Plump red fruit and sweet summer herbs fill the mouth but rather than being heavy, this is poised and transparent. Ample powdery tannins are fine and lead t...

2016 Fontodi "Flaccianello della Pieve" Toscana (Pre-Arrival) (Pre-Arrival)

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Fontodi's 2016 Flaccianello della Pieve is a masterpiece. This review represents a composite of notes from two separate tasting sessions, one at the winery and a second bottle tasted repeatedly over the course of 24 hours at my own pace. In the case of the second sample, it ended up in a blind flight next to the 2016 Masseto, and as beautiful as that Merlot-based wine is, this wine paints an even more beautiful portrait of a perfect Tuscan landscape, thanks to that tangy Sangiovese typicity.

2015 Val di Suga Brunello di Montalcino

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.
