    2013 Tenuta di Arceno ‘Valadorna’

    $58.00
    WA 95JS 94
    James Suckling 94: Very intense nose of blackberries, dark chocolate, sandalwood, vanilla, treacle and tar. Full-bodied with plenty of dark fruit, but lots of black-olive undertones and bright acidity keep this fresh, while firm tannins carve out an elegant, polished shape.

    2016 Paolo Scavino ‘Bric dël Fiasc’ Barolo

    $114.00
    WS 96WA 98JS 95WE 93VN 96
    Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 98: Drawing its fruit from Castiglione Falletto, the Paolo Scavino 2016 Barolo Bric dël Fiasc shows dimension, depth, precision and power. The wine opens to a dark garnet color with a saturated hue, leading to a full, all-encompassing bouquet. The Barolo Bric dël Fiasc is often the most representative wine in the Scavino portfolio, and never has this been more true than in this classic vintage. Dark fruit, licorice, spice and ferrous earth build a fluid and multifaceted bouquet. The mouthfeel sits firm and tight on the palate today, promising to evolve and soften tomorrow. This is a bottle for your cellar.

  • 2019 Cieck Erbaluce di Caluso

    Tasting Notes This wine is simply called Erbaluce as it represents the most straightforward expression of the Cieck’s Erbaluce grapes. Comprised of 100 percent Erbaluce that has been whole cluster pressed, cold fermented to help retain the grapes aromatic and flavor compounds, and left in stainless steel tanks tanks for a few months before bottling. Lively and fresh - fruit forward sensations are well integrated with the firm structure of the wine and refreshing acidity. Best salad and seafood wine ever!

    2015 Altesino Brunello (375ml Half-Bottle)

    $41.00
    WS 91WA 95JS 95WE 93
    Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 95: The Altesino 2015 Brunello di Montalcino shows beautiful depth and latitude, with broad fruit aromas of dark cherry and cassis that recall the warmth and golden sunlight of the vintage. The wine is deceivingly streamlined in terms of mouthfeel, but that slim and buttoned-down backbone supports a broad range of flavors and sensations, from lavender essence and camphor ash to moist soil and toasted spice. All of these elements are delivered with impressive harmony and unity, and I expect that this wine will continue on a slow, steady and satisfying aging trajectory over the next 10 years or more. Fruit is sourced from across 21 hectares of vines with tufaceous limestone soils and Alberese rock, which contributes to the freshness and balanced structure of the wine.

  • 2013 Castello di Neive ‘Santo Stefano’ Barbaresco Riserva

    $85.00
    VN 94
    Vinous 94: The 2013 Barbaresco Riserva Albesani Santo Stefano is a bit richer and bigger than the non-Riserva bottling, but it is not markedly different. Gorgeous Nebbiolo scents of wild cherry, dried herbs, menthol licorice and crushed flowers develop in a subtle, expressive Barbaresco that hits all the right notes. The 2013 finishes with wonderful density and resonance, all while retaining its gracious, mid-weight personality. What a pretty wine it is.

    $148.00
    WA 98JS 98VN 98
    James Suckling 98: Subtle aromas of flowers and strawberries with hints of cranberries. It really rises from the glass and fills the room. Full-bodied, yet so refined and beautiful with ultra refined tannins and ever so polished tannins that make the wine stealthy and focused. Great length. A fantastic encore to the 99-point 2015. From organically grown grapes.

    2018 Terlan ‘Tradition’ Pinot Bianco

    $26.00
    WA 91JS 91
    Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 91: Cantina Terlano specializes in Pinot Bianco (or Weissburgunder in German), and this entry-level value wine absolutely delivers the goods. The 2018 Alto Adige Pinot Bianco Tradition is tight and focused, with white peach and citrus aromas that segue to crushed stone and flint. That mineral signature is truly distinctive and beautiful. You can't exactly call this a lean-bodied wine, because you do get a taste of that extra heft and texture that always comes with Pinot Bianco of this level.
    James Suckling 91: Fresh flowers and sliced apples with some smoke. Medium body, crisp acidity and a creamy finish.

Aromas of stewed plums, spray roses, herb garden, and sweet tobacco with a velvety, vibrant, fruity medium-to-full body and a complex, long dark chocolate, cherry-coconut bar, candied tangerine peel, sundried tomato, green almond, and mocha finish with well-integrated tannins and moderate oak flavor.

    2016 E. Pira & Figli Chiara Boschis ‘Mosconi’ Barolo

    $157.00
    WA 96VN 96
    Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 96: The E Pira-Chiara Boschis 2016 Barolo Mosconi is a little wider and richer compared to the Cannubi, with bigger fruit, more sweetness, spice, grilled oregano and a touch of crushed hazelnut. Despite the wide net of aromas offered on the bouquet, this wine shows a very sharp and focused approach with elegantly linear tannins and matching acidity. There is a lifted quality to both the nose and the mouthfeel that gives this wine beautiful momentum and length. Mosconi is one of the headline vineyards of Monforte d'Alba. This is a gorgeous set of new releases from one of the nicest and most determined women in Barolo, Chiara Boschis. I may have missed it last year, but I am happy to see that her name is now featured prominently on the front label. Like the woman who created them, these wines are full of energy, elegance and voice.

  • 2018 G.D. Vajra Langhe Nebbiolo

    $26.00
    VN 90
    Vinous 90: The 2018 Langhe Nebbiolo emerges from a parcel in Sinio. Dark fruit, spice, earthy notes and a good bit of tannin give the Vajra's Langhe Nebbiolo a decidedly brooding, powerful feel and quite a bit more seriousness than is typical at this level. Sweet red berry fruit, mint and spice add freshness alongside bright acidity as the 2018 opens up in the glass. This is such a pretty and expressive wine.

    2015 Camigliano Brunello di Montalcino

    $54.00
    WS 93WA 94JS 94
    Wine Spectator 93: A focused, lively red, this exhibits cherry, strawberry, earth, mineral and Mediterranean herb flavors. Dense, staying fresh as this unwinds on the lingering aftertaste.
    Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 94: The Camigliano 2015 Brunello di Montalcino sees fruit from a 50-hectare vineyard planted 300 to 350 meters above sea level. The soils show lots of variation with clay, sand, rock and marine fossils. The wine's bouquet reveals classic Brunello characteristics of wild berry, forest floor, pressed rose petal, crushed stone and spice. You also get those typical balsam and herbal tones that are so specific to Montalcino. In fact, I argue that they come across with even more intensity in a beautifully balanced and sunny vintage such as 2015. This wine ages in 60-hectoliter botti for 24 months, making for a firm yet surprisingly streamlined mouthfeel. With 160,000 bottles made, the wine was released in January 2020.
    James Suckling 94: A bright and elegant Brunello that suggests sliced oranges, tulips and rose petals. Medium-to full-bodied and finely structured, drawing on silky layers of tannins and a vibrant edge of acidity.

    2015 Ciacci Piccolomini d’Aragona Brunello di Montalcino

    $71.00
    WS 94WA 95JS 98WE 97
    Wine Spectator 94: Distinctly salty, this red features cherry, strawberry, juniper, thyme and tobacco flavors. Tightly wound and energetic, with fine balance and a lingering, resonant aftertaste. Complex and built to age.
    Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 95: The Ciacci Piccolomini d'Aragona estate enjoys a beautiful and huge expanse of vineyards at the back of the Castelnuovo dell'Abate village, where the downward slope of the hamlet meets the Orcia River, which delineates the appellation border. The estate's 2015 Brunello di Montalcino offers lovely harmony and elegance. The wine's taste profile follows the soft contours and beautiful horizons that characterize this beautiful part of Tuscany. The mouthfeel is medium-weight but carefully balanced with just enough acidity to add brightness. It shows just enough backbone to guarantee staying power and longevity. That said, the tannins are carefully integrated into the delicate fiber of the wine. This is no doubt one of the most graceful Brunellos to emerge from the 2015 vintage. Some 74,500 bottles were released in January 2020.
    James Suckling 98: Extremely perfumed and decadent with dried flowers and spices and fresh mushrooms. Cherries,too. Full body. Solid core of fruit, yet ever so fine tannins. Goes on for minutes. Such beautifully crafted tannins.
    Wine Enthusiast 97: Enticing aromas of ripe wildberry, iris, camphor and sunbaked soil take shape in the glass. Full bodied and enveloping, the smooth, delicious palate doles out juicy Marasca cherry,raspberry jam, licorice and tobacco while firm velvety tannins provide support. It boasts concentration and structure but also balance, thanks to the fruit richness and freshness.

  • 2019 Enrico Serafino ‘Grifo del Quartaro’ Gavi di Gavi

    $19.00
    WA 91
    Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 91: The 2019 Gavi del Comune di Gavi Grifo del Quartaro is a beautifully fragrant wine that shows the floral and tropical fruit intensity that comes with the Cortese grape. The vines are planted in a six-hectare site in Monterotondo di Gavi that boasts white calcareous clay soils. These conditions reduce the vigor of the vines, resulting in more character and concentration. You'll also notice a drying touch of chalky minerality that gives linearity and focus to the wine. An ample 50,000 bottles were released at a terrific value price.

  • 2017 Poggio Scalette ‘Il Carbonaione’

    WS 95
    Wine Spectator 95: An alluring array of blackberry, black cherry and violet aromas introduces this supple, elegant red. Spice, mineral and tobacco elements emerge, along with firm, refined tannins, but this is all about the pure fruit. Shows terrific harmony and length. Sangiovese. Best from 2022 through 2040.

  • 2015 Ciacci Piccolomini d’Aragona ‘Pianrosso’ Brunello di Montalcino

    $99.00
    WS 94WA 96JS 100WE 98
    Wine Spectator 94: Black cherry, blackberry and blueberry flavors mark this saturated red. Beefy tannins offer support and all the components are in the right place. Stays fresh and long on the finish, with lingering accents of fruit, mineral and tobacco. Best from 2023 through 2043.
    Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 96: The Ciacci Piccolomini d'Aragona 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Pianrosso is distinguished by a unique aromatic profile that brings out mineral notes of crushed limestone or chalk. This adds a greater sense of focus and delineation that not only characterizes the bouquet but also applies to the way the wine hits the palate in a fuller and more determined way (compared to the slightly softer classic Brunello). Instead, this single-vineyard Brunello shows an upright and direct approach with soft salinity on the close followed by forest fruit, spice and medicinal herb. The mouthfeel makes a big impact thanks to its streamlined and polished texture.
    James Suckling 100: Lots of ripe and rich fruit with a decadent undertone of meat and spice that turns to pure fruit and licorice. Medium to full body, refined tannins and a fresh and bright finish. All about harmony.
    Wine Enthusiast 98: Intense aromas of berry, iris, underbrush, botanical herb and camphor shape the enticing nose. Firmly structured, the taut, full-bodied palate offers juicy black cherry, raspberry, licorice and tobacco set against tightly knit, fine-grained tannins. Drink 2025–2035.

  • 2013 Paolo Scavino ‘Rocche dell’Annunziata Riserva’ Barolo

    $247.00
    WA 97JS 95WE 94
    Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 97: The 2013 Barolo Rocche dell'Annunziata Riserva was released in January of 2019, and once again it looks to be a top prize. Licorice and flowers dominate the bouquet, and its beautiful red fruit is generous throughout. This wine has always been a beauty and consistently has had a high price tag to reflect that quality, going back to the first vintages of the 1990s. It has regularly sold for about $200 every year for the last decade. These vines are old, some of them very old (reaching the ripe age of 60 years old in 1990s, when many of them were replanted with carefully selected clones), producing an elegance and concentration that brings intensity and a high standard of aromas. This Barolo without a doubt shows its pedigree and a quality of noble perfumes that demonstrate characteristics of the greatest Nebbiolo vintages, all delivered with excellent concentration. The magic lingers on the palate, right up to the finish.
    James Suckling 95: Aromas of white truffles and dried red cherries here with an earthy nuance that makes for a complex and compelling nose. The palate has a deep and dense shape and delivers a wide array of rich cherry and plum flavors. Some handy spice here, too. Drink or hold.
    Wine Enthusiast 94: Violet, iris, exotic spice and menthol aromas lead the way on this fragrant red. The firmly structured palate boasts elegance and tension, delivering cranberry, pomegranate, licorice and white pepper set against tightly knit, fine-grained tannins and bright acidity. It’s still youthfully austere and will be even better after several more years of aging. Drink 2023–2033.

  • 2018 Vietti Barbera d’Asti ‘Tre Vigne’

    $19.00
    WA 91
    Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 91: The Vietti 2018 Barbera d'Asti Tre Vigne is a vibrant red wine teeming with energy and electricity. Those berry tones of cassis, cranberry and black currant pop from the glass. Primary fruit remains the focus, but that fruit is nicely framed by contours of spice and toasted nut. The grapes harvested for this wine represent a second selection from some of the same parcels that make the Barbera d'Asti La Crena. This cool-vintage expression is just lovely, informal and fun.
    Tasting Notes The wine is a vibrant red, berry tones of cassis, cranberry and black currant pop from the glass. The fruit is nicely framed by the contours of spice and toasted nut.
