  4. Montevertine Le Pergole Torte 2006
    VM97
    $199.98
    Availability:In Stock
    97 Points! Montevertine’s 2006 Pergole Torte is also 100% Sangiovese, but it emerges from vineyards in Radda in Chianti. The late Sergio Manetti created Pergole Torte at a time when the Chianti Classico regulations dictated that white grapes be part of the blend in Chianti Classico. Manetti created Pergole Torte as one of the first 100% Sangioveses, a wine that at the time had to be declassified to Vino da Tavola, the lowest designation, but it did not formally comply with the regulations of any appellation. Of course, a bevy of pure Sangioveses followed, but Pergole Torte was among the first. It remains one of the great wines of Italy. On this night, the 2006 Pergole Torte is shockingly powerful, dense and structured, with big tannins that give the wine energy and vibrancy. Readers should be in no hurry to open bottles. What a wine! - Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media Learn More
  5. Paolo Scavino Barolo Bricco Ambrogio 2015
    JS97
    WA93

  6. Colosi Secca del Capo Bianco 2018 Pre-Arrival
    DEC97
    $19.98
    97 Points! Enticing tropical fruit and delicate mineral characters give way to an explosion of vibrant citrus and succulent stone fruit; understated and elegant with a beautiful acid backbone, a superb freshness and a very long, intense finish. - Decanter Magazine Learn More
  7. Burlotto Barolo Cannubi 2015
    VM97
    $149.98
    Availability:In Stock
    97 Points! The 2015 Barolo Cannubi is another dizzying wine from Burlotto. A rush of dark cherry, plum, hard candy licorice, violet and spice all hit the palate. Powerful and vertical in the glass, the Cannubi simply has it all. I would give the 2015 a good bit of time to shed some of its considerable baby fat. Powerful, dense and packed, the Cannubi is not as showy or seductive as the Monvigliero, but it has so much to offer, especially with a bit of bottle age. What a magnificent wine it is! - Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media Learn More
  8. Cordero di Montezemolo Barolo Enrico VI 2015
    JS97
    WA96
    VM93+
    $89.98
    Availability:In Stock
    97 Points! Coal dust and graphite with some very attractive, sweetly ripe plums and cherries. Tarry accents, too. The juicy tannins are captivating, drawing fresh and zesty red-fruit flavors in long, upbeat fashion. Launches long and holds in succulent, impressive form. Drink this from 2022. - JamesSuckling.com Learn More

  10. Elio Grasso Barolo Ginestra Casa Mate 2015
    JS96
    WA97
    VM96
    $79.98
    Availability:In Stock
    97 Points! There is slightly more structure to the 2015 Barolo Ginestra Casa Maté than to the Gavarini Chiniera of the same vintage, and the only differences here are the soils and that this fruit is harvested about ten days later. It's a pretty fascinating demonstration of the power of the single vineyard. The Gavarini Chiniera parcel offers slightly sandier soils, whereas this site is composed of more clay. In rainy years, the Gavarini Chiniera vineyard drains more effectively, whereas the Ginestra's soil retains more moisture in the hot and dry vintages. As a result, in vintages such as this one, Ginestra shows a more compact nature and, in general, provides more impact and more structure. This is a very robust expression, extremely linear and tight. The Ginestra Casa Maté narrowly wins this round. It's another beautiful Barolo. - Monica Larner, robertparker.com Learn More
  11. 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

  12. Fuligni Brunello di Montalcino 2013
    WE95
    JS96
    VM97
    $74.98
    Availability:In Stock
    97 Points!  Luminous red. High-pitched aromas of sour red cherry, raspberry, rose, stainless steel, white pepper and minerals. Dense and silky in texture but displays great juiciness, clarity and floral lift; the lively but harmonious acidity really lifts and frames the bright red and mineral flavors. Totally saturates the palate and yet comes off as virtually weightless. This hauntingly beautiful wine showcases everything Brunello can be when made from an ultra-competent producer farming Sangiovese vines that grow in what is a real grand cru section of the much too large Brunello di Montalcino denomination. - Ian D'Agata, Vinous Media

  13. Montevertine Le Pergole Torte 2015
    WA96
    VM97
    $139.98
    Availability:In Stock
    96-98 Points!  The 2015 Le Pergole Torte is a 100% expression of Sangiovese sourced from the estate's oldest vines (between 30 and 50 years old). Like the other wines from Montevertine, Le Pergole Torte sees both its alcoholic and malolactic fermentations in cement, and the wine later ages in new oak barrels for 12 to 18 months depending on the vintage. After that first phase in barrique, it goes into large botte to complete its integration. This gorgeous vintage opens to a deep, dark appearance with a velvety presentation of dark fruit and black cherry flavors. The wine's textural richness is ultimately what sets this fantastic vintage apart. - Monica Larner, Wine Advocate, March 2018.

  14. Podere Poggio Scalette Il Carbonaione 2016
    JS97
    WA93
    $47.98
    Availability:In Stock
    97 Points! What a crazy nose of pure fruit, featuring pressed violets, lavender, dark plums, cherry compote, orange rind, lemon zest, boysenberries, vanilla, Thai basil and bay leaf. The fruit is so overt and generous, yet presented in an unimaginably sleek way, the firm tannins keeping it compact and silky throughout, while the tangy acidity cuts right through to the long, structured finish. Drink in 2023. - JamesSuckling.com Learn More
  15. Tua Rita Giusto di Notri 2016
    JS97
    VM96
    $74.98
    Availability:In Stock
    97 Points!  This has a wonderful texture of beautiful, ultra-fine tannins, complex character of dark fruit, currants, hazelnuts and light chocolate. Goes on for minutes. Give it three or four years of bottle age but already so delicious. - JamesSuckling.com

  17. Tenuta Dell'Ornellaia Ornellaia 2015
    WS97
    JS98
    VM98
    $229.98
    Availability:In Stock
    98 Points! The 2015 Ornellaia is a dream wine with magnificent balance. All the elements are in the right place. In most vintages, Ornellaia needs time to fully come together, but the 2015 is just impeccable, even in the early going. The warm vintage notwithstanding, winemaker Axel Heinz crafted and Ornellaia is more about finesse and power. The potent, bruising tannins Ornellaia can show as a young wine are nowhere to be found. Bright raspberry jam, mint, white flowers and pomegranate are some of the many notes that punctuate the finish in a memorable Ornellaia that will go down among the great vintages produced at this reference-point estate. - Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

  18. Valle Isarco Aristos Pinot Grigio Eisacktaler Alto Adige 2016
    DEC97
    $23.98
    Availability:Out of Stock
    97 Points!  Platinum Best in Show, Very pale green-silver in colour with quiet, understated but pristine aromas hinting at pear fruits, fine oatflake and the sappy aromas of cut plants. On the palate, the wine manages to combine richness and delicacy to tantalising effect, delivering all of the aromatic nuance the nose promised in perfectly balanced guise. A Pinot Gris of lifted, high-pasture purity and grace. - Decanter World Wine Awards 2018

  19. Vietti Barolo Ravera 2014
    VM97
    $159.98
    Availability:In Stock
    97 Points!  Another highlight in this range, the 2014 Barolo Ravera opens with the most exquisite, captivating aromatics imaginable. It will be interesting to see if it develops a bit more midpalate depth and pliancy. Today, the 2014 is a bit austere, even within the context of the year and this site, where the wines are a bit on the nervous side to start. I have seen Vietti Raveras blossom into spectacular wines and imagine that will be the case here as well. Readers should not plan on opening a bottle anytime soon.

    VM93
    $159.98
    Availability:In Stock
    100 Points!  This gorgeous wine opens with alluring aromas of sweet pipe tobacco, underbrush, new leather, truffle, plum and eucalyptus. Smooth and full-bodied yet elegant, the savory, juicy palate delivers crushed Marasca cherry, raspberry preserve, licorice and menthol alongside polished, enveloping tannins. Fresh acidity provides impeccable balance while an orange zest note lifts the finish. - Wine Enthusiast
