  1. Padelletti Rosso di Montalcino 2015
    $26.98
    Availability:In Stock
    The Padelletti estate consists of 4 hectares of vineyards cultivated organically. The vines are all in one plot, called Rigaccini Secondo, located to the north of the town of Montalcino, at 430 meters above sea level (relatively high for the appellation). The soil here is medium-textured loam, rich in sandstone and alberese limestone with some galestro marl. They harvest manually, normally at some point between the 21st of September and the 20th of October, taking great care to choose only the best grapes in the vineyard to ensure wine quality. The average age of the vines is 15 years for the Rosso. The wines are made entirely of Sangiovese, and estate-bottled. In the cellar there is another selection for quality, with the grapes being allocated to different small cement tanks by their winemaker. Indigenous yeasts are used for fermentation; maceration time is about three weeks for the Rosso. After fermentation and maceration the wine is aged in large Slavonian and French barrels (‘botti’), the Rosso for twelve months. Learn More
  2. Castello di Volpaia Chianti Classico Riserva 2016
    DEC93
    $28.98
    Availability:In Stock
    A selection of bunches from Volpaia's best sites among their 43ha at lofty heights in Radda-in-Chianti. The estate waited until 3 October to start picking in order to bring the grapes in at full ripeness. Distinctly peppery red fruits mark the nose, with rosehip, celery and anise backing them up. The palate is focused and bright with brisk acidity, though the tannins need time to unwind. Nice tension here. - Decanter Magazine Learn More

    WS94
    JS96
    VM92
    $21.98

    96 Points!  Aromas of plums, cherries and hints of green olives. White truffles and deep earth, too. Full-bodied, so layered and beautiful with a fabulous texture and ripe tannins. It is so pure and minimalist in the end, showing the effect of traditional, hands-off winemaking. Don’t miss this. Decant before serving. One for the cellar. Drink or hold. - JamesSuckling.com

  5. 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
