    WE95
    WA95
    $39.98
    Availability:In Stock
    95 Points! The 2016 Barbaresco is a tight and beautiful wine that will require more time to unwind and soften. This beautifully balanced vintage is characterized by a tight inner core of fruit that underlines the graceful aging capacity of these wines. The 2016 is shaping up to be one destined for long cellar aging. Now in its youth, the wine offers wild berry, rose and licorice aromas. - Monica Larner, robertparker.com Learn More

    95 Points! Juicy and generous, this delicious red opens with aromas of dark-skinned berry, fragrant blue flower and baking spice.

    JS95
    WA94
    VM94

    Availability:In Stock
    95 Points! One of the best Biondi-Santi's in years. This is really silky, with plum and chocolate and hints of cedar. Some citrus as well. Full body, with gorgeous fruit and a persistent finish. Give this another three to four years to open. - JamesSuckling.com Learn More
  7. Montevertine Le Pergole Torte 1996 Magnum 1.5L
    VM95
    $599.98
    Availability:In Stock
    95 Points! The 1996 Le Pergole Torte, from a cold, late-ripening vintage, is powerful and explosive, with a compelling interplay of ripeness, sweetness and structure. Cherry jam, wild flowers, mint, sweet spices, menthol and licorice meld together in the glass, while lavender, rose petal, quinine and a host of aromatic notes come alive on the finish. Although striking today, the 1996 will drink well for another 10-15 years, perhaps longer. Today, it is truly special. In 1996, the harvest began on October 21, exceedingly late, even for Montevertine. - Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media 2016 Learn More
  8. Grattamacco Bolgheri Superiore L'Alberello 2015
    JS93-94
    WA95
    $64.98
    Availability:In Stock
    95 Points! Grattamacco claims the distinction of having planted the first head-trained alberello vineyard in the Bolgheri area, in the 1970s, and its fruit has produced a long line of wines rated 90+. The 2015 Bolgheri Superiore l'Alberello is among the best I have sampled. The wine opens to harmonious notes of smoke and tar and shows elegant mineral definition with sweet oak spice and lots of rich dark fruit at its core. The blend is 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot.” - Monica Larner, robertparker.com Learn More

    WS94
    JD94+
    JS93
    WA95
    $61.98
    Availability:In Stock
    95 Points! The 60/30/10 blend of Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot in the 2016 Bolgheri Rosso Magari produces an expressive and opulent red wine, with great acidity and definition. The wine is firm and tightly wound, with secondary complexity that expresses itself in terms of tar, leather and spice. The tannins are supple and soft. - Monica Larner, robertparker.com Learn More
  10. Paolo Scavino Barolo Bric del Fiasc 2015
    JS96
    WA95+
    $69.98
    Availability:In Stock
    96 Points! The redcurrant-compote character really pops out here, before dried cranberries, licorice and spice box all come to the fore. Tannic and very expansive, sweeping through a whole array of red berries via linear acidity and wrapping itself up in a long finish. Drink in 2023. - JamesSuckling.com Learn More

  13. Terlano Pinot Bianco Riserva Vorberg Alto Adige 2016
    WA95
    $39.98
    Availability:In Stock
    95 Points! I admit that after I tasted this wine for work, I brought the remnants of the bottle up to my Roman terrace (on one of the first warm days of early spring) and polished off the rest of the bottle with friends. The 2016 Alto Adige Terlano Pinot Bianco Riserva Vorberg is just that kind of wine: It invites you to share its bounty and beauty with the people you most respect and admire. I just love this wine, and this is one of the best vintages I have tasted. Very few Italian dry white wines have scored this high, but this is a sure celebrity. This Riserva offers excellent Pinot Bianco concentration with generous layers of stone fruit, pear and poached apple. The finish is long and smooth. Even if you leave the bottle open for a long time, it evolves, but never oxidizes. The wine undergoes both fermentations in oak and then ages on the lees in oak barrel for 12 months. Some 55,000 bottles were created. Compared to the other top-shelf wines from Cantina Terlano, this is the best value of all. - Monica Larner, robertparker.com Learn More
  14. Podernuovo A Palazzone Toscana Argirio 2015
    JS95
    WA93
    $29.98
    Availability:Out of Stock
    95 Points! Love the aromas of licorice, lavender and rosemary flowers. Medium to full body, ultra-fine tannins and a fresh and focused finish. Shows beautiful tannin management and finesse. Drink in 2020. - JamesSuckling.com Learn More
  15. Voerzio Martini Barolo 2015
    JS95
    $39.98
    Availability:In Stock
    95 Points! This is big and powerful with lots of chewy tannins and intense fruit. Smoky wood comes out, too. Full body. Loads of flavor on the finish. Goes on for minutes. Needs a lot of time to mellow. - JamesSuckling.com Learn More
  16. Piccini Memoro Rosso NV
    DEC95
    $9.98
    Availability:In Stock
    95 Points! 40% Primitivo, 30% Montepulciano, 20% Nero d'Avola, 10% Merlot. Intense nose of bramble fruits, licorice, leather and tobacco. Very nice palate, with smooth and elegant tannins, balanced residual sugar and lingering finish. - Decanter Magazine World Wine Awards Learn More
  17. Vietti Barolo Ravera 2015
    JS95
    WA96
    VM95
    $179.98
    Availability:In Stock
    96 Points! Starting off a bit shy and closed at first, the 2015 Barolo Ravera showed noticeably better in the sample that had been opened a few hours prior to my arrival at the winery for my annual visit. This makes perfect sense as Vietti’s wines are intentionally slow at first but are built to endure the long haul. From the Novello township, this vineyard site is recognized for it power, structure and the uniquely broad approach it shows to the palate. There is a larger span of black fruit at its core. The positioning of the Ravera cru means it is open to the elements and the cold air from the Alps, and the wines result in freshness and mineral character as well. Luca Currado describes a salty, anchovy-like aroma that does indeed appear. Otherwise, this wine shows tightly polished and glossy tannins. - Monica Larner, robertparker.com Learn More
  18. Vietti Barolo Brunate 2015
    JS95
    WA95
    VM93
    $179.98
    Availability:In Stock
    95 Points! This is an explosive and absolutely exuberant expression of Nebbiolo from a vineyard site in La Morra near M. Marengo’s property. Vietti farms two parcels here, a higher side of the vineyard and a lower one (near Damilano and Ceretto). These lower parts of Brunate perform very nicely in the cooler vintages. Instead, this warm vintage expression puts a lot of its fruit depth and personality upfront in a confident and no-fuss manner. You absolutely know what you are getting here, even at the first sniff of the bouquet. The wine proceeds to open and blossom before your nose, offering dark fruit, rose, spice and a very linear mineral tone at the back. That linear flinty note is just terrific. - Monica Larner, robertparker.com Learn More
  19. Ciacci Piccolomini d'Aragona Brunello di Montalcino Pianrosso 2013
    WA95
    $69.98
    Availability:In Stock
    95 Points!  Although this wine is not labeled as a riserva, it is released six years after the harvest as if it were one. The 2013 Brunello di Montalcino Pianrosso opens to balanced fragrances that mix fruity elements with spice, crushed stone and smoke. This wine is linear and direct with firm tannic support at the back. Give it another few years to flesh out further with additional bottle aging. - Monica Larner, robertparker.com

  20. Petrolo Galatrona IGT Valdarno di Sopra 2015
    JD97
    JS99
    WA96
    VM95
    $94.98
    Availability:In Stock
    99 Points! Terrific aromas of violets, roses and raspberries with hints of strawberries and brown sugar. Full body. Phenomenal layers of focused fruit and polished velvety tannins. This is the Galatrona that everyone has been waiting for. It's the vintage that shows depth and power yet wonderful finesse and focus. Best ever. Drink from 2023 but already electrifying. - JamesSuckling.com
