This is a textbook wine, especially in the exceptional 2010 vintage. Black fruit and prune is folded together with delicate tones of cigar ash, crushed mineral, licorice, white truffle and dried raspberry. The tannins are firm, but polished and the wine leaves a lasting imprint of dark fruit and cola on the elegant finish. Drink: 2016-2028."

licorice and cola. Rosso di Montalcino is one of Italy's most food-friendly wines (think pasta, grilled sausage and lasagna) and this wine is a good example of why. Fresh acidity and easy tannins offer a smooth and informal drinking experience.

Rosso’s from Montalcino are, in essence, “baby” Brunello. If you’ve always been enamored with wine from Montalcino, Uccelliera has to be one of the benchmarks. The wine is 100% Sangiovese, but we’re talking about a different clone than what is used in Chianti. Here we get a wine that has more of everything and by that I mean breadth and amplification when compared to Chianti Classico (which is why Chianti producers make a Riserva). With Uccelliera’s it’s an unadulterated love affair. It’s fresh, rich, and powerful, but being a Rosso di Montalcino, just plain easy to drink!

delivers rich flaors of blackberry, prune, licorice and a touch of carob, along with round tannins ans soft acidity. It has layers of flaor and nice depth. Drink now through 2017."

Amarone della Valpolicella, usually known as Amarone, is a dry red wine made primarily from Corvina, Molinara and Rondinella grapes. According to tradition, the grapes are allowed to dry on straw mats, which concentrates the sugars and flavors in the grapes. The grapes are then pressed and fermented, before being aged in oak barrels. The wine resulting from this labor-intensive process is very flavorful.

The 2007 Le Bessole is voluptuous and generous in the mouth with remarkably fresh fruit including mulberry, cherry, kirsch, raspberry and baking spice. This medium-bodied Amarone is very approachable with soft, supple tannins. It is the perfect introduction for those wanting to try this classic Italian wine-at an affordable rarely seen in Amarone.

Andrea Bosco, along with his father (Agostino) and mother (Carla), represent the quintessential family run and operated Piemontese winery. Long recognized by European critics, especially Decantur, as a “rising star”, Andrea’s wine making skills continue to reach new heights and new accolades here in the US.

La Serra is located in the heart of the bowl that lies below the town of La Morra and like most wines of La Morra is known for producing lighter styles of Barolo. However, though one would not confuse Andrea’s wines with the powerful, tannic monsters of, say, Serra Lunga, they are not as light in style as many other wines produced from La Serra. Part of this might be attributable to fact that his vineyard encompasses the first rows above the more powerful cru of “Brunate.” So while the label reads “La Serra”, there is definitely a presence of “Brunate” in the wines.

In the past, Andrea has experimented using new small oak barrels not because he was interested in “chasing points” or creating a style of wine for a particular palate, but because he was interested in producing the best wine possible from his land. Beginning with the 2008 vintage, he, shall we say, “got it right.” The wines no longer see any aging in small barrels, instead they spend 24 months in large, neutral oak barrels of 1,200 liters (Botte Grande). You won’t find any oak on the nose or on the palate – just pure, unadulterated nebbiolo aromas of dried strawberries, white roses and tar.

Long recognized by European critics, especially Decantur, as a “rising star”, Andrea’s wine making skills continue to reach new heights and new accolades here in the US.

Andrea has two crus from which he produces two very traditional Barolos. The first is in Verduno, where like the wines of Brangero, one is immediately struck by the aromatics of the wine. The Cru, Neirane, lies just beyond La Morra and from the soil rich in Marne, it producers a super fine, super elegant wine. The second Cru needs little introduction – La Serra.

the Langhe writes:
“Gran Bussia is universally acknowledged as one of the finest interpretations of Barolo. Created in 1970 from a selection of the estate’s best grapes, Gran Bussia – released only in the best vintages – has shown how it is possible to achieve a perfect marriage of aromas and flavor with unhurried cellaring. Recent tastings of all the vintages have confirmed the staying power of the wine, which exalts the majestic nose of Nebbiolo while offering a palate that becomes increasingly velvety with the passing years."

menthol and a hint of oak. Firm yet well-integrated tannins provide the backbone for a core of explosive fruit in this racy, extroverted wine. The Colonnello marries the round, supple personality of this site with the classic sense of structure and tannin of the year. If I were going to open any of Conterno’s 2010s before age ten it would be the Colonnello, but even then I would try to hold off. Quite simply, this is one of the very best Colonnellos in recent memory. 2020 – 2030”

WINE SPECTATOR 98 POINTS - "A beautifully crafted Barolo, with ripe cherry, plum, leather, spice, mineral and smoke elements. Starts off supple and approachable, but the gripping tannins soon move in, securing the lengthy, spice-filled finish. An underlying mineral vein adds depth. Best from 2018 through 2036. From Italy.—B.S."

JAMES SUCKLING 95 POINTS - "A fabulous nose of minerals, fresh roses, dark fruits. This is full bodied with a powerful structure of gorgeous subtle fruit and polished tannins. Great wine for 2010. Better in 2017."

We are excited to be able to offer our Barolo lovers access to the exquisite wines of Aldo Conterno on a pre-sale basis. This wine is excepted to arrive in October of 2014.

The Conterno family has been making wine since the 1700’s and Aldo Conterno is regarded as one of the greatest producers of Piedmont. As a young man, Aldo worked with his brother, Giovanni before striking out on his own in 1969. He developed a reputation as an innovator with a focus on quality and attention to detail and passed this dynamism on to his three sons who now run the business.

Aldo’s small property on the hill of Bussia in Monforte D’Alba has grown into a marvelous 25 hectare estate. The Aldo Conterno Barolo’s are intense and concentrated examples of perfectly ripened Nebbiolo grapes from superior terroirs, grown at a gentle altitude that allows for optimum finesse. The three top ‘Crus’ on the famed Bussia slope produce the three flagship Barolos of the estate.

ALL the wines in the line-up are wonderful examples of quality Barolo made in an excellent vintage. In fact, 2010 is widely regarded as perhaps the greatest vintage in Piedmont in two decades! The wines have plenty of structure, will benefit from cellaring and are highly collectible. Although relatively young at this point, the balance, concentration and length offer a preview of even greater things to come for those who are patient.

important food and wine publication, rated Allegrini a Star winery with over ten Tre Bicchieri ("Three Glasses"-- their top recognition) awards. Palazzo Della Torre is a “Cru” wine coming from a single vineyard and is known as their “Baby Amarone.” The blend of 70% Corvina, 25% Rondinella and 5% Sangiovese takes two different paths. Thirty percent of the grapes are left to dry on racks till December, in true Amarone style, and the other seventy percent vinified immediately. The fresh wine is blended with the juice from the dried grapes for a second fermentation and the end result is an absolute sexy wine, deep in ruby red color, with flavors of blackberries and mocha.

over over his uncle's Valpolicella estate-with its prized old vineyards in the heart of the Classico zone-in the mid-1980's. By the late nineties, his style had matured, and his wines had become world-famous for their incredible intensity of fruit. The key, , is not only the age of his vines but the fact that they are nearly all naturally low-yielding ancient clones: Corvinone (40%), Corvina Grossa (25%) and Rondinella (20%).Tommaso's first goal every year is to make the best Amarone Classico possible. An incredible Amarone value.

A ripe, velvety red, with a fine frame of supple tannins, displaying flavors of prune, kirsch, bitter herbs and loamy earth, with just a hint of savory-sweet sun-dried tomato. There's a subtle juiciness, with a sweet, smoky note that builds toward the long finish.
