  1. LA SPINETTA 2007 CAMPE BAROLO

    Item #: i_305981
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    Wine Advocate: 95
    WINE ADVOCATE 95 POINTS - "There is no doubt the 2007 Barolo Campe is impressive. It is a beautifully balanced wine layered with opulent, super-ripe fruit, new leather and licorice. The French oak is beautifully balanced in this broad-shouldered Barolo, while the fruit avoids the overripe tendencies of the past. The wine holds up perfectly in the glass, which hasn’t always been the case. Tar, licorice and spices wrap around the intense finish. This is the finest vintage of Campe to date. Kudos to Giorgio Rivetti and his team for this fabulous effort. To be released in 2012. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024."

  2. PAOLO BEA 2007 PASSITO SAGRANTINO DI MONETEFALCO

    Item #: i_302037
    Bottle Size: 375ml
    **Please note, this is a half sized bottle
    Bea’s rare and mind-bendingly complex passito (the traditional method for making Sagrantino di Montefalco, in fact) comes from pure Sagrantino harvested at a high brix level and left to dry naturally on straw mats in the upper level of his grand winery. After several months of drying, the bunches are destemmed and crushed, at which point an infinitesimal amount of juice is pressed forth from the ultra-shriveled berries. Fermentation skulks along until the sugar levels reach 16% to 18%. The final product carries around 100 grams per liter of residual sugar and delivers a visceral blast of Sagrantino essence: spice cake, cured tobacco leaves, peppery black fruits, old leather, and a profound sense of umami. Always released after a significant amount of aging (thereby increasing its already stunning complexity), it’s an idiosyncratic, deeply enveloping wine that feels like a transmission from another era.

    ANTONIO GALLONI 95 POINTS - "Felsina's 2007 Vin Santo del Chianti Classico is terrific. Silky, expressive and gracious, the 2007 is all class. Orange zest, mint, cinnamon and dried flowers grace the palate. The aromatics are especially pretty in this midweight, lifted Vin Santo. Drinking window: 2017-2027."
