  • 2017 Vietti Barbera d’Asti ‘Tre Vigne’

    $19.99
    WS 91WA 90
    Wine Spectator 91: High-toned black currant, black cherry and violet aromas and flavors are accented by vanilla and toast notes in this suave red. Supple and intense, with a lingering aftertaste of dark fruit, licorice and spice. Drink now through 2024.
    Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 90: Despite the deep concentration and richness of the 2017 Barbera d'Asti Tre Vigne, the freshness is still there. The three vineyard parcels Vietti farms in Asti go into this wine of impressive depth. Yes, this was one of the hottest vintages in a decade for Barbera d'Asti, but it still shows more acidity than the estate’s Barbera d'Alba. This wine is rustic and raw with plenty of structure. Originally planted in 1932 and 1935, they bought these vineyards in 1995 and replanted many in 1996, with fruit from the old vines going into their special La Crena selection. Some 35,000 bottles were made.

    2015 Argiano Brunello di Montalcino

    $74.99 $55.00
    WA 95JS 95
    Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 95: This is a terrific wine and one of the new releases from Montalcino that I happily include on a short list of top recommendations. The Argiano 2015 Brunello di Montalcino shows a very lively bouquet that is already singing despite the young age of this new release. The wine opens to a dark ruby color with garnet highlights. The bouquet shows a large span of wild berry, earth, licorice spice and medicinal herb aromas. This vintage also reveals a pretty floral character with dried rose potpourri and lavender buds. After fermentation, the wine is aged slowly for 30 months in large oak botte (including 10-, 30- and 50-hectoliter capacity), thus restricting oxygen and gently slowing its evolution. However, the 2015 vintage is naturally expressive and exuberant, and that's the main takeaway here.
    James Suckling 95: Very floral on the nose with plums, rose petals and freshly sliced porcini mushrooms. The palate is tight and compressed with beautiful ripe fruit, wet earth and cool, stone flavors. A structured and impressive wine. Drink after 2022.

  • 2016 Inama ‘Vigneto du Lot’ Soave Classico

    $29.99
    JS 93
    James Suckling 93: Quite developed, but with a ton of dried herbs on the nose, then a lot of concentration and power on the palate. This makes a serious statement. Quite an austere, firm finish. Drink or hold.

  • 2013 Barone Ricasoli ‘Castello di Brolio’ Chianti Classico Gran Selezione

    $74.99
    WS 92WA 94JS 95
    Wine Spectator 92: Inviting aromas and flavors of black cherry, black currant, toasty oak, spice and tar are backed by solid grip. Fresh and long, with fine balance in the end. Best from 2017 through 2027.
    Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 94: Tasted from vat, the 2013 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Castello di Brolio is shaping up to be a stunning wine, and may be one of the best expressions this single vineyard has produced so far in its young incarnation as a Gran Selezione wine. Previous vintages see some small additions of international grapes, but this vintage was made without Merlot in the blend. The wine is brimming with bright fruit intensity and enormous generosity. The finish is luscious, rich and long-lasting. It promises to flesh out further with more bottle aging.
    James Suckling 95: A bright and refined red with delicate chocolate, plum and raspberry character. Medium body, integrated fruit and tannins. Bright acidity. Love the vivid fruit and citrus combination here. Drink now or hold.
