BORGO SCOPETO 2010 CHIANTI CLASSICO

We love versatility in wine and  constantly seek one that can wear many hats, complement many meals and please a plethora of palates while remaining true to its core (varietal, terroir) self.  This Borgo Scopeto is right in our sweet spot.

The nose is much more complex than the reasonable bottle price might suggest: dark spices, violets, ripe strawberry, cedar, tobacco, creosote, a touch of mint-- brilliant.  The palate starts with sweet berries, mixed reds and strawberries, leading to a path of briar and bramble.  Dark baking spices add to the mid-palate as a wave of bright acidity keeps it uplifted throughout culminating in a lengthy, tasty finish.  Great summer-into-fall red.  Buoyant with acidity, loaded with awesome scents and tastes, fully realized wine.  Enjoy it with solid summer fare, from pizzas and pastas to ossobuco.

WINE SPECTATOR 92 POINTS - "This is vibrant and energetic, with a base of fine-grained tannins lifting the cherry, currant, rhubarb and tobacco flavors. Taut and almost racy on the long finish. Best from 2015 through 2024. 2,200 cases imported."

WAGNER-STEMPEL 2013 PINOT NOIR ROSE DRY
RHEINHESSEN, GERMANY

This pale, gorgeous, aromatic, Pinot Noir-based dry rosé from dry wine specialist Wagner-Stempel is as dry as the rosés from the south of France, yet offers more flavor and mouthfeel than some. The nose and palate feature cherry, plum, red currant, raspberry and cassis leading to an elegant, totally dry finish. The Wagner-Stempel estate dates back to 1845. They farm their 20 hectares of vineyards organically and have been certified since 2011.

MAI DAIGINJO 1.8L

This is truly the pinnacle of the brewer's art. This is great Sake.  Unfortunately, it only comes in 1.8 Litre format, which is special ordered directly from Japan 4-6 times a year. It is truly magnificent.
You should take the plunge, & imbibe.

Here are the characteristics:
Nose: Tropical fruits; papaya,mango,lychee.
Palate: Rich, creamy, dry, mineral, pineapple
Finish:  Dry w/ light acidity, dank finish. This Sake is insane.  Serious stuff here people.

• Please take advantage with caution and a light chill, of course... KAMPAI!

2010 Barolo: Part I

The first batch of the 2010 Barolos have arrived!  Like the Barolo producers and the press, we are quite excited to be offering this spectacular vintage.  While we expect the bulk of the releases to arrive in the fall, this is a pretty tasty introduction to how good 2010 was and is.  With or without the exuberant press and lofty verbiage, this is a great time for wine fans, in general, and Barolo fans in particular: these wines are the real deal.  Why not come taste them at our wine bar July 10th and judge for yourselves!

“... Simply put, 2010 is the greatest young Barolo vintage I have tasted in 18 years of visiting the region and a lifetime of buying, cellaring and drinking these wines.” “As structured as the 2010s are, these aren’t your father’s (or mother’s) Barolos. In other words, the wines won’t take decades to become approachable.  Significant strides in viticulture and winemaking have made today’s young Barolos more approachable than they have ever been. For example, the 2008 Barolos, wines from another cool, late-maturing vintage, are surprisingly open today. Those wines may close down at some point in the future, but the days of needing to cellar Barolos for decades before they drink well is largely a thing of the past. The last vintage I can remember with truly forbidding youthful tannins is 1999.” - ANTONIO GALLONI... Vinous Media (January 2014)

 

VIETTI 2010  BAROLO CASTIGLIONE

ANTONIO GALLONI 94 POINTS - “The 2010 Barolo Castiglione is beautiful in the way it brings together the vibrancy of the year with a soft, inviting textural presence. Freshly cut flowers, mint, sweet spices, anise and red berries are all woven together nicely in the glass. With time in the glass, the wine blossoms with exquisite finesse, floral aromatics and exquisite overall balance. Ripe, silky tannins support the exquisite finish. An insanely beautiful wine, the 2010 will give readers a good idea of just how great the 2010 vintage is at Vietti. The Barolo Castiglione is made from a large number of parcels across the Barolo zone, many of which are of a high enough level of quality that they could be bottled separately. This is first-class juice.”

LUIGI PIRA 2010 “MARENCA” BAROLO

ANTONIO GALLONI 92-94 POINTS - “The 2010 Barolo Vigna Marenca bursts from the glass with massive dark red/black fruit, iron, smoke and sweet spices. Intensely ferrous and hugely tannic, the Marenca is endowed with serious Serralunga depth and structure. Even with all of its power, the Marenca always has an extra dimension of fruit, as it does once again in 2010. The Marenca is going to need a good few years to come together, but it is immensely promising."

RENATO CORINO 2010 “ARBORINA” BAROLO

ANTONIO GALLONI 94 POINTS - “Dark red cherries, mocha, licorice, new leather and menthol flesh out in the 2010 Barolo Arborina. Renato Corino has done a fabulous job taming the slightly angular tannins that are typical of the site. Mint, pine and savory herbs all add an attractive aromatic register on the finish. The 2010 is dark, rich, mysterious and totally seductive. Rarely has a young Corino Barolo been so translucent yet deep.”

MARIO MARENGO 2010 “BRICCO VIOLE” BAROLO

ANTONIO GALLONI 93+ POINTS - “Marengo’s 2010 Barolo Bricco Viole is endowed with stunning depth, energy and tension. A dark, violet-hued Barolo, the 2010 bursts from the glass with lavender, spices, new leather, tobacco, mint and wild flowers. The 2010 is bright and tightly-coiled, which is typical of this high-altitude site in cool vintages. Readers who can be patient will be rewarded with a superb Barolo. As always, the style is airy, lifted and precise.”

MARIO MARENGO 2010 BRUNATE BAROLO

ANTONIO GALLONI 94 POINTS - “Dark red cherries, plums, smoke, licorice and violets burst from the glass in the 2010 Barolo Brunate. Translucent, transparent, yet powerful, the Brunate shows all the signatures of this great site. Here, too, the wine clearly needs time, but the balance is unquestionably quite fine. In particular, the wine’s inner sweetness and pure perfume will thrill readers who like aromatically expressive Barolos.”

MARCARINI 2010 “LA SERRA”  BAROLO

ANTONIO GALLONI 91-93 POINTS - “Marcarini’s 2010 Barolo La Serra is laced with freshly cut flowers, mint, crushed rocks and red fruit. High-toned floral and spice notes abound in a bright, chiseled Barolo built for the cellar. The vivid, crystalline finish is particularly of note.”

MARCARINI 2010 “BRUNATE”  BAROLO

ANTONIO GALLONI 92-94 POINTS - “The 2010 Barolo Brunate is initially quite reticent, as young wines from this site often are. Cherry, plum, clove, menthol and pine notes unfold as the 2010 begins to show off its rich, dramatic personality. A rich Barolo bathed in fruit and tannin, the 2010 is going to need quite a bit of time to fully meld together, but all of the raw elements are there for that to happen. The resonant, enveloping finish is impossible to resist.”
