The tense, young palate is still nervous but already boasts finesse, showing wild raspberry, crunchy red cherry, white pepper and star anise. Firm, refined tannins and racy acidity give it a linear, almost austere elegance, while bright acidity keeps it focused and balanced.

  • 2018 Foradori Teroldego

    $37.00
    VN 91
    Vinous 91 ~ The Foradori Teroldego always makes for a wonderful introduction to the brand. In fact, it was a vertical tasting of the Teroldego, a wine created in a fresh style from younger vines, yet still noble and age-worthy, that first won my heart - not the top-shelf Granato. The 2018 is no different. Here I’m finding a display of wild berry, fresh peppery herbs, violets, and crushed stone. It’s silky in texture, complemented by cool-toned red fruits and minerals, with just a hint of round tannin that provides grip. Inner florals resonate, while residual acids pinch at the taste buds. This is perfectly balanced, wonderfully pleasing today yet able to mature over the medium term in a cold cellar.

  • 2017 Zingara Cabernet Sauvignon

    $18.00
    Tasting Notes ~ Only 150 cases produced! This Cab from Friuli Grave lets its fruit shine through. It’s all stainless steel production helps reveal the grape’s juicy, racy character. The region’s stony, gravelly soil – from which Grave gets its name – lend mineral notes and lingering aromatics to the wine. This is a remarkably smooth and easily accessible Cabernet Sauvignon that could easily find itself as the daily red in your house.

    2013 Tenuta di Arceno ‘Arcanum’

    $88.00
    WA 96 JS 91
    Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 96 ~ The 2013 Arcanum is a blend of 73% Cabernet Franc with smaller parts Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. The Cabernet Franc element is obviously strongest, and you get steely notes of black fruit follow by wild sage and rosemary oil. This is a powerful and thickly layered red wine that pushes the boundaries of extract and intensity, especially for a Tuscan red wine. Off the top of my head, I can count maybe ten wines from the region that take on such a full-bodied and opulent approach. This wine should age forward for many years to come.

    2016 Paolo Scavino ‘Bric dël Fiasc’ Barolo

    $114.00
    WS 96 WA 98 JS 95 WE 93 VN 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

    $20.00
    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!

From organically grown grapes.

    2018 Terlan ‘Tradition’ Pinot Bianco

    $26.00
    WA 91 JS 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.

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

    $157.00
    WA 96 VN 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.

  • 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.

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 94 WA 96 JS 100 WE 98
    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.

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

    $223.00
    WA 97 JS 95 WE 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.
