  1. 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

    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

    DEC98

    JS98
    WA98
    VM96
    $209.98
    Availability:In Stock
    98 Points! The 2016 Bolgheri Superiore Ornellaia is a wine of extreme complexity and precision. It offers monumental depth with profound layers of black fruit, coffee, licorice and baking chocolate. I tasted this 2016 vintage beside the less-impactful 2015 vintage (which was reviewed last year). These two editions are very different when compared side to side, and this 2016 release is clearly superior in terms of the quality, clarity and intensity of its offerings. This Ornellaia delivers glossy shine and a polished texture that segues to important richness, concentration and textural fiber. It wraps thickly over the palate, imparting waves of sweet dark fruit and dark spice that linger for many long minutes. This beautiful wine is hitting the market now, but collectors will want to put it straight into their cellars for safekeeping. - Monica Larner, robertparker.com Learn More

  5. Aia Vecchia Bolgheri Superiore Sor Ugo 2016
    WA93
    $32.98
    Availability:In Stock
    93 Points! The 2016 Bolgheri Superiore Sor Ugo offers thickly extracted aromas of blackberry preserves and cherry confit with smoke, tar and sweet spice. This is a full-bodied red (with 15% alcohol) that wraps thickly over the palate, showing rich density and concentration along the way. Campfire ash and hickory smoke appear on the close. The blend is 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot aged in barrique for 18 months. - Monica Larner, robertparker.com Learn More

    WE90
    JS91-92
    $22.98
    Availability:In Stock
    91-92 Points! Fresh and vivid with a blackberry, currant and fresh-herb character. Medium to full body, silky tannins and a focused finish. - JamesSuckling.com Learn More
  7. Tenuta San Guido Guidalberto 2017
    WS92
    WE93
    JS94
    WA92+
    VM92
    $36.98
    Availability:In Stock
    92+ Points! A blend of mostly Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, the 2017 Guidalberto appeals to the more informal side of sophisticated drinking. By that I mean it makes a great choice at lunch or for family dinners. Despite the accessibility and dense concentration of the fruit, especially evident in a warm vintage such as this, the wine's pedigree is evident in terms of the careful management of the structure and acidity. My samples were a little closed at first and needed some extra coaxing. Once open, the wine shows the dark fruit and exuberance of this hot vintage in Tuscany. - Monica Larner, robertparker.com

    92 Points! The 2017 Guidalberto is dark, sumptuous and quite powerful. Even with the extremes of the punishing growing season, the 2017 comes through beautifully, showing remarkable clarity and precision. Black cherry, plum, lavender and spice notes are pushed forward, but it is the wine's structure that gives energy and a real sense of direction. Time in the glass brings out an attractive red berry and floral character that adds freshness. - Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media Learn More
  8. Antinori Guado al Tasso Bolgheri Superiore 2016
    WS94
    JS98-99
    WA98
    $104.98
    Availability:In Stock

    98-99 Points! Full-bodied, dense and layered with fantastic aromas and flavors. Long, long finish. Serious contender here for wine of the vintage. One of the best ever from here? A blend of cabernet sauvignon, merlot and syrah. - James Suckling, jamessuckling.com

    98 Points! This stunning vintage of this landmark wine marks a slight adjustment to the blend. The 2016 Bolgheri Superiore Guado Al Tasso is no longer made with Petit Verdot. The blend is now 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot and now 20% Cabernet Franc. This small change does not go unnoticed, as this wine is absolutely seamless now—like the finest Asian silk fabric. That profound textural softness and suppleness changes the way the wine smells and tastes, with hints of momentary sweetness that are more tactile than anything else. Generally speaking, the 2016 vintage offers more elegance (slightly less concentration) and a hair more freshness compared to the 2015 edition. When I tasted this wine, the bouquet was still timid, but it will no doubt become more expressive and open as this beautiful wine continues forward along its aging trajectory. Some 120,000 bottles were made, a remarkable feat considering the extreme quality on offer. - Wine Advocate

    JS94
    WA93
    $28.98
    Availability:Out of Stock
    94 Points!  A very fresh and enticing nose of bright blueberries, newly picked blackcurrants, citrus, crushed stones, pressed violets, dried sage, ash and cedar. Full-bodied and ever so tight with firm, polished tannins punctuated by vibrant acidity. Long and taut on the finish. - JamesSuckling.com

  10. Tenuta Dell'Ornellaia Le Serre Nuove 2016
    WA94
    $58.98
    Availability:In Stock
    94 Points!  This is a fantastic interpretation from Bolgheri. The 2016 Bolgheri Rosso Le Serre Nuove dell’Ornellaia is made with fruit from the same vineyard plots that go into the Bolgheri Superiore, only this is a second selection if you will. Generally speaking, fruit from the younger vines goes here. This wine gives us a very pretty glimpse of what we can expect of the high-end releases from this classic vintage. The fruit is rock solid, delineated, tonic and firm. The pleasure factor awarded here is very high thanks to the wine’s inner softness, silky tannins and soothing extract. The bouquet is seamless and pristine - Monica Larner, robertparker.com

  11. Tenuta Dell'Ornellaia Le Serre Nuove 2015
    JS94
    WA93
    VM94
    $59.98
    Availability:In Stock
    94 Points! The 2015 Le Serre Nuove shows just how alluring this vintage is. Silky, perfumed and also wonderfully light on its feet, the 2015 is a real pleasure to taste today. All of the Ornellaia signatures come through in an attractive, mid-weight wine that will drink well right out of the gate. The 2015 is a stunning Serre Nuove. That's all there is to it. - Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

  12. Antinori Guado al Tasso Bolgheri Il Bruciato 2016
    JS94
    WA93
    $25.98
    Availability:In Stock
    93+ Points!  This is absolutely one of the best value wines you will find in Italy and I suspect beyond. The 2016 Bolgheri Rosso Il Bruciato is a blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot and 15% Syrah. With more than one million bottles made, there should be no problem finding it at your nearest wine merchant. Once you do locate it, I enthusiastically recommend that you pick up a few cases. This vintage comes together with seamless intensity and smoothness. You get so much dark fruit flavor, paired with soft tannins, spice, smoke and dried blackberry. Il Bruciato pulls off its magic effortlessly. It doesn't try to be anything other than it is: Delicious. - Monica Larner, robertparker.com

  13. 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

  14. Il Castellaccio Valente Toscana 2015
    WS90
    JS92
    $17.98
    Availability:In Stock
    90 Points! This is rich and juicy, boasting black cherry, blackberry and chocolate aromas and flavors. Polished, with elements of toast and spice emerging as this lingers. Sangiovese, Pugnitello, Foglia Tonda and Ciliegiolo. Drink now through 2022. - Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator
