      Chianti Classico “Vigna San Marcellino” Gran Selezione DOCG 2016 (BIO) · Double-MAGNUM in OWC

      Sparkling ruby red. Complex and enveloping bouquet of rich cherry, black forest berries, violets and tobacco. The single-vineyard Chianti Classico San Marcellino is excellently structured, interwoven with lively, elegant tannins, of exemplary harmony and a hearty, slightly salty finish. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Powerful ruby with a fine violet sheen. Somewhat cloudy nose of black truffle, elderberry, some red beet. Shows plenty of power on the palate, dense, savoury tannins, but also comes across as quite edgy." Falstaff

    • "Palafreno" Rosso Toscana IGT 2012 (BIO) <br>MAGNUM in OWC

      “Palafreno” Rosso Toscana IGT 2012 (BIO) · MAGNUM in OWC

      Elegance is the strength: 100% Merlot from Central Tuscany, which already offers great drinking pleasure today, but whose complexity of taste will increase enormously as it matures. Brilliant colour, a varied bouquet and a firm body with balanced proportions as well as a hearty taste with a long, elegant aftertaste are its unmistakable characteristics and enable it to compete with the very large Merlots of Tuscany. SUPERIORE.DE

      "A balanced and easy wine with dried berry and cherry aromas and flavors. Full body, fresh acidity and a clean finish. Made from organically grown grapes." James Suckling

      "The 2012 Palafreno, 100% Merlot from the Ruffoli sub-zone of Greve, is superb. High-altitude, hillside vineyards confer grace and nuance to a Merlot built on exquisite finesse. Sweet plum, mocha, rose petal and white pepper add gorgeous aromatic lift on the silky, sensual finish. Readers should expect an understated Merlot that emphasizes elegance over power." Antonio Galloni

      "100% Merlot from a cooler, high-altitude north to north-west facing site in Greve. Its pure, pristine, clearly delineated aromatics and flavours of black raspberry, plum, blackberry and spice are simply gorgeous - a lovely sappy, vibrant style of Merlot with a rich but taut feel. In some ways, this is more like Cabernet Franc than Merlot. It was picked at just the right level of ripeness: not too ripe and not too green, and therefore has beautiful poise and balance."

      The top wine of the eponymous winery presents itself exemplary and quasi as a reference for many other so-called Super Tuscan of the region. Deep ruby red with light red reflections. In the bouquet dark fruits, spices, herbs, some leather and a fine tarry note. On the palate, the flavors then unfold powerful and concentrated, yet it glides velvety with a wonderfully balanced acidity-tannin ratio in a rich, well-proportioned and long finish. SUPERIORE.DE

      “Ugo Contini Bonacossi” Rosso Toscana IGT 2016 (BIO) · 6 Bottles in OWC

      This impressive red comes from the single vineyard "Vitticciana", which was created by the "Godfather of Carmignano" Ugo Contini Bonacossi especially for a pure Sangiovese wine because of the perfect orientation. It is only produced in the best years, and then it shows itself immensely complex and of fine fruit and fine-grained tannin. After a few years of aging in the bottle, it can easily compete with some of the best Brunello di Montalcino. SUPERIORE.DE

      "This wine represents a special selection of organic Sangiovese. The Tenuta di Capezzana 2016 Ugo Contini Bonacossi shows great balance and harmony with highly distinctive varietal aromas. It opens to wild berry, cherry, pressed violet and earth. However, these aromas are slightly darker or heavier in character, keeping in line with the distinctive qualities of a growing region located west of Florence toward the Tyrrhenian Sea." Robert Parker

      "Lots of ripe berry and cherry character with chocolate, walnut and spice undertones. It’s full-bodied with an intense, juicy finish. Needs time to come together." James Suckling

      Camartina 2010 presents itself sparkling ruby, with opulent fragrant bouquet of cloves, lots of blackberry fruit, some chocolate. On the palate very much juicy fruit, spicy notes, underlaid by grippy tannin, very clear and long. SUPERIORE.DE

      "The 2010 Camartina is one of the most beautiful versions of this wine I have tasted in some time. Layered and vibrant on the palate, the 2010 impresses for its finesse and nuance. Freshly cut flowers, mint, dark red berries and graphite all meld together in a wine of exceptional refinement. Today, the aromas and flavors are naturally not fully expressive, but another few years should work wonders. The cool, late-ripening season yielded a Camartina of understated class and pedigree. This is a fabulous showing." Antonio Galloni

      "A powerful red wine with an abundance of berry, dried fruits and hints of vanilla on the nose and palate. Full body, with chewy tannins and a fresh finish. Needs at least two or three years of bottle age to come together. Made from biodynamically grown grapes." James Suckling

      "A vivid, fresh style, whose berry and cherry flavors are focused and augmented by tobacco, underbrush and iron notes. Tight and intense, presenting a long, mineral-inflected finish. Cabernet Sauvignon and Sangiovese." Wine Spectator

      "The 2010 Camartina offers many beautiful surprises. This blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Sangiovese is a structured and powerful wine, but it offers elegance and balance as well. This classic vintage has done its part to shape a wine that offers bright fruit intensity, delineated aromas of blueberry and spice, and a richly velvety sensation in the mouth. You can hold this wine for the next ten years." Robert Parker

      Camartina 2016 has exceptional finesse and elegance. Distinguished, deep ruby red. Rich aromas of black and red berries such as black cherry and blueberry, joined by notes of ripe plum and tamarind. With further aeration then multi-layered notes of ivy, forest floor and freshly cut bark with hints of leather, sweet tobacco and liquorice. The full and silky body is framed by firm but well-integrated tannins supported by excellent acidity. Then, just before the long finish, ripe black fruits enriched by nutmeg and sweet spices. Great its Tuscan identity full of energy and liveliness. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Shiny, dense ruby. Opens on the nose with fine spicy notes, cinnamon blossom and clove, followed by cassis and plum. Substantial and powerful on the attack, opens with many layers of present tannin, lots of juicy berry fruit." Falstaff

      "Very pretty and precise with tight tannins and polish. It's linear and compact with blackberry, blackcurrant and cherry character. Racy and polished." James Suckling

      "The 2016 Camartina is superb. As always, Camartina is 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Sangiovese, all from Greve's Ruffoli district, where Querciabella is located. At this stage in its development, the Camartina is driven by Sangiovese in its red-toned fruit, aromatics and acid profile. The 2016 is vibrant, saline and full of energy. I am so intrigued to see how it develops in bottle." Vinous

    • "Galatrona" Merlot Val d'Arno di Sopra DOC 2018 (BIO) <br>Double-MAGNUM in OWC

      “Galatrona” Merlot Val d’Arno di Sopra DOC 2018 (BIO) · Double-MAGNUM in OWC

      Galatrona is a pure Merlot in a class of its own. Black-red ruby in the glass. On the nose, black berries, fine wood spice and some leather. Very generous fruit aromas and extremely complex on the palate, it glides elegantly into the depths until it is caught by a finely woven tannin and passes into a long and finesse-rich finish. A wine that does not have to hide behind Masseto & Co., on the contrary, for us it has been Italy's Merlot benchmark for years. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Rich, deep dark ruby violet. Impressive nose with notes of cigar box and cardamom, behind it lots of rich berry fruit, exciting. Rolls over the palate with a lot of presence and lots of juicy fruit, opens up in the middle with fine-meshed tannin in many layers, long and polished." Falstaff

      "Petrolo is a certified organic grower, and this iconic expression of Merlot from Tuscany has now moved on from IGT status to the Val d'Arno di Sopra appellation. This is big news for an appellation trying to carve out its own identity in the competitive environment of Tuscan wine appellations. There is arguably no wine in this area near Arezzo more celebrated than Galatrona. The Petrolo 2018 Val d'Arno di Sopra Galatrona is a beautifully soft and supple expression with dark fruit, cherry, blackberry, tobacco, spice and smoked cedar wood. The results are balanced and elegant, and this vintage has a beautiful manner in which it presents the intensity and depth of Tuscan Merlot without any of the heaviness or darkness you might anticipate. Everything comes together here with careful precision and wholeness." Robert Parker

      "The flagship 2018 Galatrona, is very beautiful. Silky tannins wrap around a core of Merlot fruit. I am struck by how elegant the 2018 is, as Galatrona is so often a wine of impact. Black cherry, chocolate, game, leather, licorice and spice give the 2018 a good bit of nuance. This is an especially understated, refined edition of Galatrona." Vinous

      "This is seductive with tons of finesse and layers of liquorice and olive paste with grip and smoked swirls of grilled oak. I love the confidence and complexity of this wine. 2018 had less extreme temperatures than 2017 in this corner of Chianti, and it gives a lilting freshness while still guarding the wild fig and rosemary aromatics that give a sense of place. Overall, a gorgeous wine and an extremely easy bottle to recommend." Decanter

      "Aromas of blackberries, black olives, green olive, and violets. It's really aromatic. Full-bodied, yet so precise and polished with creamy, layered tannins that caress your palate. It's extremely persistent and goes on for minutes. Really balanced. All about purity and complexity From organically grown grapes. Try after 2023." James Suckling

      Campo Lusso, a Cabernet Sauvignon from the vineyard of the same name, is another Grand Cru from Petrolo. The small location covers only half a hectare under the tower of Galatrona. The natural terrace offers extremely favourable soil and climatic conditions. Only about 1,300 bottles of this spectacular drop can be produced per vintage. SUPERIORE.DE

      "The full-bodied 2016 Campo Lusso is absolutely gorgeous. This is a dark and generous expression of Cabernet Sauvignon that is grounded and centered, but so intense all the while. The bouquet is layered and rich with dark fruit, spice, leather, tar and chocolate. Campo Lusso is a beautiful expression of this French grape from Tuscany. The tannins are velvety and impeccably integrated. First produced in 2004, this wine sees fruit sourced from an isolated vineyard spot located just under the Galatrona tower (at 500 meters above sea level). Farmers referred to this site as the "campo lusso," or luxury site, because of the ideal soil composition of rocky limestone. This vintage takes this beautiful wine a giant step forward in terms of general quality and elegance, and this is due in part to the advancing age of the vines." Robert Parker

      "The dried-pear and toasty-oak aromas make this a very distinctive white. Ripe and generous, but with more than enough freshness. Polished, long finish. From organically grown grapes." James Suckling

      "The 2016 Batàr is superb. Candied lemon peel, mint, chamomile and lightly tropical notes are all laced together. In the glass, the 2016 has a real sense of phenolic intensity that offers a striking counter to the floral aromatics and expressive, layered fruit. The 2016 is 50% Chardonnay and 50% Pinot Blanc, much of that younger plantings of the Gouges clones of Pinot Blanc sourced in Burgundy. Today, the Batàr is tightly wound and piercing in its brightness. Another few years in bottle should do the trick." Antonio Galloni

      The small vineyard is located at an altitude of 500 m above the Galatrona Tower and offers the best conditions for the cultivation of the French grape variety Cabernet Sauvignon. Due to the limestone subsoil, this site is also called a luxury site (campo lusso). Intense and generous bouquet of dark fruits, leather and chocolate.

Beautiful fruit at the finish. From organically grown grapes. Needs three to four years to come together, but a beauty already. Try after 2024." James Suckling

      "Luca Sanjust has a beautiful pocket of organic Cabernet Sauvignon vines that are reached by jeep on the tiny dirt road that goes from his villa to the ancient stone tower at the apex of the Petrolo property. The 2018 Val d'Arno di Sopra Cabernet Sauvignon Campo Lusso (now part of the DOC appellation) is a stunning wine, offering richness, intensity, power and impeccable balance. The wine is bursting with dark fruit, plum and blackberry, but it also offers ample tobacco and Indian spices. The tannins are young and I would suggest another few years of cellar aging before you bring this bottle out. When you do, make sure to serve it with an important steak dinner. This wine hits all your sensorial pleasure points. Dare I say it? Campo Lusso is gaining on Galatrona as my vino del cuore (the wine of my heart)." Robert Parker

      “Camartina” Rosso Toscana IGT 2016 (BIO) · 6 Bottles in OWC

      Camartina 2016 has exceptional finesse and elegance. Elegant, deep ruby red. Rich aromas of black and red berries such as black cherry and blueberry, joined by notes of ripe plum and tamarind. With further aeration then multi-layered notes of ivy, forest floor and freshly cut bark with hints of leather, sweet tobacco and liquorice. The full and silky body is framed by firm but well-integrated tannins supported by excellent acidity. Then, just before the long finish, ripe black fruits enriched by nutmeg and sweet spices. Great its Tuscan identity full of energy and liveliness. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Shiny, dense ruby. Opens on the nose with fine spicy notes, cinnamon blossom and clove, followed by cassis and plum. Substantial and powerful on the attack, opens with many layers of present tannin, lots of juicy berry fruit." Falstaff

      "Very pretty and precise with tight tannins and polish. It's linear and compact with blackberry, blackcurrant and cherry character. Racy and polished." James Suckling

      "The 2016 Camartina is superb. As always, Camartina is 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Sangiovese, all from Greve's Ruffoli district, where Querciabella is located. At this stage in its development, the Camartina is driven by Sangiovese in its red-toned fruit, aromatics and acid profile. The 2016 is vibrant, saline and full of energy. I am so intrigued to see how it develops in bottle." Vinous

    • "Palafreno" Rosso Toscana IGT 2012 (BIO) <br>6 Bottles in OWC

      “Palafreno” Rosso Toscana IGT 2012 (BIO) · 6 Bottles in OWC

      Elegance is the strength: 100% Merlot from Central Tuscany, which already offers great drinking pleasure today, but whose complexity of taste will increase enormously as it matures. Brilliant colour, a varied bouquet and a firm body with balanced proportions as well as a hearty taste with a long, elegant aftertaste are its unmistakable characteristics and enable it to compete with the very large Merlots of Tuscany. SUPERIORE.DE

      "A balanced and easy wine with dried berry and cherry aromas and flavors. Full body, fresh acidity and aclean finish. Made from organically grown grapes." James Suckling

      "The 2012 Palafreno, 100% Merlot from the Ruffoli sub-zone of Greve, issuperb. High-altitude, hillside vineyards confer grace and nuance to aMerlot built on exquisite finesse. Sweet plum, mocha, rose petal andwhite pepper add gorgeous aromatic lift on the silky, sensual finish.Readers should expect an understated Merlot that emphasizes eleganceover power." Antonio Galloni

      "100% Merlot from a cooler, high-altitude north to north-west facing site in Greve. Its pure, pristine, clearly delineated aromatics and flavours of black raspberry, plum, blackberry and spice are simply gorgeous - a lovely sappy, vibrant style of Merlot with a rich but taut feel. In some ways, this is more like Cabernet Franc than Merlot. It was picked at just the right level of ripeness: not too ripe and not too green, and therefore has beautiful poise and balance."

      “Palafreno” Rosso Toscana IGT 2016 (BIO) · 6 Bottles in OWC

      Energetic, immensely multilayered Merlot of the extra class. Ethereal bouquet of plum, black cherry, blackberry, menthol and spices. Very nuanced on the palate, opulent to expressive, at second glance then supple, downright elegant. In complexity, depth and richness of finesse almost unbeatable, in the next years he will reveal more and more of his repertoire. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Brilliant, rich ruby. Very well developed fruit in the nose, full of blackberry and wild raspberry. On the palate dense tannin, fresh fruit, then unfortunately a little rough in the final." Falstaff

      "A very solid red with blackberries, cherries and crushed stones that follow through to a full body with chewy tannins and loads of fruit, yet always tight and reserved." James Suckling

      "The 2016 Palafreno, 100% Merlot from the estate vineyards in Greve, brings together so much of what makes the Querciabella wines so appealing. In the glass the 2016 is deep and vibrant, yet also remains light on its feet. A whole range of mineral and savory notes confer freshness. The 2016 spent 18 months in French oak, with 25% new wood. It's another stellar wine from Querciabella." Vinous

      Vino Nobile di Montepulciano DOCG 2017 (BIO) · GOLIATH 18 Liters in OWC

      This garnet-red sparkling Vino Nobile inspires us fragrantly after dried plum and a breath of cinnamon and clove. On the palate, much present fruit, fine, sweet melting in the long finish. An authentic and pleasantly elegant organic wine from the heart of the Montepulciano region. SUPERIORE.DE

      "The organic 2017 Vino Nobile di Montepulciano offers a delicate embroidery of red fruit, pressed violet and potting soil. There are subtle highlights of dried orange peel and iron ore as well. This pretty wine prizes fruit purity and simplicity. It offers a naked interpretation of this noble appellation without distractions or too many bells or whistles. The wine is light and streamlined on the palate, but there is enough tannic power to carry it over a meal of pici pasta and rabbit ragù." Robert Parker

      "Salcheto checks a lot of boxes. The winery is powered by renewable energy, water waste is 100% recycled, there are no added sulphites during vinification and the entire production is certified organic and packaged in light weight bottles. Above all, the Nobile tastes delicious. It is clean and immediately appealing offering complex cedar, earth, tea and balsamic nuances atop forest fruit. Full-bodied and full of character, it is rich yet fresh and seductively textured with polished tannins. A great success for this challenging vintage." Decanter

    • Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2015 (BIO) <br>6 Bottles in OWC

      Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2015 (BIO) · 6 Bottles in OWC

      Vinified only in the best vintages, it surprises with a bright garnet red, almost making you think it was a rosé. Bouquet of blackberry and small sweet forest berries, cherry-like on the palate and then not at all arbitrary with a gripping acidity and fine-grained tannin. A great, intellectual Brunello for the advanced connoisseur who likes it profound and extraordinary. SUPERIORE.DE

      "As always a hoard of tradition with its flowery notes of raspberries, violets and leather; still very youthful construction with fine-grained tannin, invigorating acidity, seductive finish on notes of plums, leather and tobacco. Pleases with its elegance." Vinum

      "Sparkling, bright garnet red. Finely drawn, very clear nose of fresh cherries and plums, some china bark in the background. Rolls juicy and salty over the tongue, fine, handy tannin in many layers, much tension, very long finish." Falstaff

      "Tasted blind. Just mid ruby. Gorgeous, perfumed red-fruit nose with an elegant note of oatmeal. Bright, concentrated red fruit with plenty of acidity. Very elegant and understated, with fine sandy tannins. Long and complex finish." Jancis Robinson

      "There’s a real Burgundian feel here to the sour cherries, five spice, citrus, nutmeg and fresh oregnano. The tannins have a beautiful, porcelain-like feel; the acidity cuts a wide and long shape. Delicate, floral and refined. All about grace and elegance." James Suckling

      "On steep slopes in the southeast of Montalcino, Poggio di Sotto's vineyards are cooled by breezes coming off the nearby Monte Amiata. The Brunello is crafted from plots that range in altitude from 200 to 450 metres. Fermentations are spontaneous, maceration lasts one month and ageing is in 30-hectolitre Slavonian oak casks. This demonstrates the generosity of the vintage but is still fresh and graceful. Sweet fennel, underbrush and thyme blossoms give intricacy to pure red cherry fruit. Abundant chalky tannins build stealthily across the palate and provide a welcome dimension of texture, while Sangiovese's appetising juiciness shines through." Decanter

      "Luminous red. Delicately smoky and ripe on the nose, with deep raspberry and red cherry aromas complicated by notes of sandalwood, licorice, graphite and sweet pipe tobacco. Full and rich but also very bright, with red and dark berry flavors given life by juicy, harmonious acidity and very nicely framed by supple tannins. Closes long, fresh, and expansive, deeper and less sweet than the estate’s 2018 Rosso di Montalcino also released this year. Utterly delicious and already accessible, this boasts noteworthy elegance and freshness for such a big ripe wine." Vinous

      "Poggio di Sotto doesn't miss a beat with this very special release. This is a glorious expression of the vintage, and the wine has absorbed the golden sunlight of Tuscany, delivering beautifully ripe, round and subtle fruit layers. The 2015 Brunello di Montalcino shows concentration, but not too much, and richness, but not too much. You get the power and the opulence of the vintage presented with the elegance and grace that is the house style at this venerated estate. Poggio di Sotto is one of the benchmarks of Montalcino. There's a lot of red fruit energy deep inside that should stir this wine on course as it ages over the next two decades." Robert Parker
