  1. Antinori Solaia Toscana IGT 1998
    VM93
    $219.98
    Availability:In Stock
    93 Points! The 1998 Solaia is an excellent choice for drinking now and over the next handful of years. Not a blockbuster, the 1998 has developed nicely, but also appears to have limited upside potential from here. - Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media 2013 Learn More
  2. 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
    JS94
    Special Price $39.98 Regular Price $65.00
    Availability:In Stock
    94 Points!  Aromas and flavors of black currant, cherry, cedar, iron and tobacco are corralled by the taut, dense structure in this red. Not flashy, but displays depth, while the long, vibrant finish allows the fruit to play an encore. - Wine Spectator

  5. Antinori Solaia 2015 Pre-Arrival
    JS100
    WA100
    $349.98
    100 Points! There is a magical infinity, a continuous loop of compatibilities, between the icon wines of Tuscany and the 2015 vintage. The stunning 2015 Solaia is solid evidence of this perfect alignment. This was a warm vintage that shows less favorably in my opinion in different parts of Italy and with other grapes that render their most elegant performances in the cooler vintages. I would put pure expressions of Nebbiolo and Sangiovese in this category. However, Tuscany and many of her great blended reds (made partially or fully with international grapes) operate according to a different logic. To me, their maximum expression comes when you can taste that Tuscan sunshine beaming from within. Its rays are brilliant and warm. They shine across the senses with opulence and intensity. The very name Solaia evokes the concept of sunshine and this unique Tuscan wine archetype I am referring to. With the 2015 vintage, Solaia is liquid sunshine not just in name but also in fact. The bouquet is immediately soft and sensual with dark fruit, spice and sweet tobacco. The mouthfeel shows intensity and power, but you don't get any heavy residue from the dry extract (measured at 33 grams per liter). Indeed, the wine feels glossy, tonic and fresh. It is composed of mostly Cabernet Sauvignon with Sangiovese and a tiny part Cabernet Franc. There is a bit of crunch or snap that comes thanks to the more acidity-prone Sangiovese grape (the wine measures 3.5 in pH). Finally, the tannins are beautifully sweet and ripe. This wine is meticulously executed, and the 2015 vintage lives up to an ideal of what we imagine Solaia to be. It will be released about a week after this review is published. - Monica Larner, Wine Advocate

  6. Felsina Cabernet Sauvignon Maestro Raro 2011
    WA92
    VM94
    Special Price $36.98 Regular Price $65.00
    Availability:Out of Stock
    94 Points!  Deep and explosive to the core, the 2011 Maestro Raro boasts superb depth and pure power. Grilled herbs, tobacco, smoke, new leather and black cherries race across the palate as this thrilling Cabernet Sauvignon shows off its considerable personality. The 2011 finishes with expressive, bright floral and spice notes that balance the density of the fruit. Once again, Maestro Raro speaks more to Felsina than it does to Cabernet Sauvignon. The 2011 is superb.  Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media, September 2014

  7. Montecariano Cabernet Sauvignon Puntara 2008
    $41.98
    Availability:In Stock
    The Puntara is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon that is harvested mid October after being left to over-ripen.  The bunches are then collected and placed into small crates where they dry naturally for 30 days.  The wine then sees 30 months in barrel with regular battonage (lees stirring), after which it spends a year in the bottle.  Junior Alzeo? Maybe, but at the very least a ‘must taste’ for both Cabernet and Amarone fans alongside something hearty.
    Plush, fairly dense fruit that is both ripe and a little savory.  The palate is broad and caressing with ample blackberry fruit flecked with smoke, roasted herbs, dried plum and well infused oak.
