WINEMAKER'S NOTES - "This wine is of an intense straw color. It has an elegant nose that gradually releases a vivid and definite perfume of the Read More...
white fruit from which it is made. In the mouth the impact is dense and dry and these two sensations balance each other so that the perfume is matched by a somewhat dry finish. This wine is best suited to rich dishes that include saucesof meat or fish and it also goes well with spicy dishes."

ANTONIO GALLONI 96 POINTS - "Sandrone's 2011 Barolo Le Vigne is sweet, silky and exceptionally polished in the glass. Sweet floral notes, bright Read More...
red berries, subtle spices and mint are all laced together nicely in the glass. Le Vigne is a blend of fruit from multiple vineyard sources. This is the first year in which Villero is part of the blend."

PAOLO SCAVINO 2011 "MONVIGLIERO" BAROLO

ANTONIO GALLONI 93 POINTS - "One of the more reticent wines in the range, the 2011 Barolo Monvigliero is also one of the most promising. Understatement Read More...
and nuance are the calling cards in a Barolo that captures a highly appealing interplay between the unique personality of this Verduno site and the trademark Scavino textural richness. Bright beams of supporting acidity and minerality give the Monvigliero much of its energy and drive. The Monvigliero has firmed up quite a bit since bottling and I expect it will require at least a few years to fully come together.

with blueberry, cherry and raspberry character. Full body, with chewy tannins and a long and flavorful finish. A juicy and rich wine. Better in 2017."

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.

When the wine called "Sassicaia" (meaning "place with a lot of rocks", in reference to the vineyards near Categneto Carducci) was released in 1968, the phenomenon of the super]Tuscan Read More...
was born. Sharing a rarefied position, with vineyards intimately proximate to the origin of this most famous super]Tuscan wine, the Pellegrini family, the owners of Aia Vecchia, have been grape growers in the area for several generations. Owning seventy]four acres of the estates under the Bolgheri DOC, in some of the most favored locations, Aia Vecchia is not only emulating, but surpassing the quality of their more famed neighbors with their brilliant rendition of a super]Tuscan Bordeaux]style blend: Aia Vecchia Sor Ugo.
Characteristics: a long lasting, intense wine continually unfolding in aroma, with notes of spices and forest fruits; its great concentration and structure, the natural expression of the warmth and strength of its territory make it powerful, mineral, rich, complex and evident on the nose and palate.

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."

NOT ONE TO BE MISSED! The Allegrini estate is based in the Valpolicella region of Italy and represents the highest expression of Valpolicella wines. Gambero Rosso, Italy's most Read More...
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.

JAMES SUCKLING 92 POINTS - "A ripe and juicy red with dried berry and green coffee bean character. Full body, fresh acidity and a juicy finish. A blend of corina and rondinella."

some additional fruit from the Liste cru for the first time to make this base Barolo. It sees no filtration or clarification. Pretty berry notes with licorice and toasted almond fill the palate. Wild berries and pressed cherry give the wine vertical lift and energy.

JAMES SUCKLING 95 POINTS - "Wonderful decadent aromas of musk, orange peel and plum follow through to a full body, with soft tannins and a long and Read More...
rich finish. Salty and savory. Layers of gorgeous fruit. Drink or hold."

WINE ADVOCATE 93+ POINTS - Altesino's 2010 Brunello di Montalcino stands proud among its peers. No other wine I tasted among the new releases in Montalcino achieves this unique level of aromatic finesse and distinction. The bouquet is almost purely floral in character with a strong emphasis on pressed rose petal, dried violets and potpourri. The fruit tones are less emphatic and include bright cherry and red currant. In the mouth, the wine's compressed texture is accented by fennel seed and licorice. the 2009 vintage had more power and heat, but this version shows elegant restraint."

This is a pre-arrival with the wine expected to arrive in the spring of 2015

One of the beautiful cru Amarone that Masi makes. The Mazzano vineyard is located at high elevation and made up of steep, stone fortified terraces; as a result, the Corvina, Rondinella Read More...
