      “Rocca Rubia” Carignano del Sulcis Superiore Riserva DOC 2016 · Double-MAGNUM in OWC

      A typical representative from Sardinia. Pronounced fragrance of berries and spices. Dense on the palate with a fascinating balance between tannin and full body. A complex red with a long and smooth finish. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Inky-red. Clean aromas and flavors of dark cherry, plum, herbs and coffee. Then similar flavors, with initially fleshy mouthfeel but then building tannic on the back end. Needs time in the cellar; if you must open a bottle now, remember this benefits a lot from aeration." Vinous

      "Very pretty carignan character to this, with blueberry and slate aromas and flavors and a crushed black-pepper undertone. Medium body and firm tannins." James Suckling

      “Perbacco” Nebbiolo Langhe DOC 2017 · Double-MAGNUM in OWC

      Perbacco shows in the fresh bouquet first lightly leafy notes, then a lot of cherry. On the palate beautifully round, lots of ripe fruit, cherries and red berries, underlaid with fine-grained tannin, long finish. SUPERIORE.DE

      "A wine with a diehard fan club, the Vietti 2017 Langhe Nebbiolo Perbacco drinks like a young Barolo but costs a fraction of the price. I really need to say little more because that accurately sums up the vast appeal of this classic and versatile Nebbiolo. The bouquet is expressive and fresh with wild berries, blue flowers, spice and tobacco. Besides a bit more color concentration that you might notice in the wine's appearance, Perbacco magically shows no sign of the hot vintage." Robert Parker

      Dark fruits form the backbone of its fragrance body, to which a moderately dosed floral and balsamic perfume gives additional charm and freshness. Coherent is the dense taste, which relaxes its spiciness and reveals a fine tannin grid. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Rich garnet. Elegant, though slightly reserved nose, rich cherry, blood orange, smoke, black currant. On the palate with fresh tannin, nice juiciness, salty, clear fruit, in the aftertaste with pressure and delicate drying." Falstaff

      "The 2017 Crognolo is laced with crushed red berry, spice, orange peel and mint flavors. In this vintage, Crognolo is light in body and structure. I would prefer to drink it on the young side." Vinous

      "A balanced and fresh red for the hot 2017 vintage with medium body, fine tannins and plenty of currants, blackberries and blueberries on the finish." James Suckling

    • Barbaresco DOCG 2016 <br>Double-MAGNUM in OWC

      Barbaresco DOCG 2016 · Double-MAGNUM in OWC

      In a deep, vivid ruby to garnet red, Barbaresco shows itself with the extensive bouquet of red fruits and pastries and a mineral touch. On the palate it convinces with a rich, solid structure and a continuous development, which ends in a long, fragrant final. Every year, the leading winegrowers' cooperative in Italy shows what they and their members are capable of with their basic Barbaresco. Complimenti! SUPERIORE.DE

      "Tasted blind. Youthful looking mid ruby. Iron, oats and lifted sweet, rich fruit. Bags of ripe cherry on the palate but nothing out of kilter or overdone. Tannic layer under generous sweet-sour cherry fruit. Embryonic and with plenty of stuffing." Jancis Robinson

      "Produttori's 2016 Barbaresco is delicious now and is only going to get better. It's a deliciously fresh wine, its structure tucked away behind clean acidity and earthy layers of dark, ripe fruit. This is a sculpted wine, with fine, powdery tannins that are currently a bit drying on the finish but should resolve." Decanter

      "Cherry, tar and menthol flavors mark this rich, silky red. Even more expansive on the palate, building to a long, complex aftertaste. Beautifully balanced, this picks up a minerally accent on the finish."Wine Spectator

      "The 2016 Barbaresco is a stunning wine with tremendous richness for this bottling. Ample, deep and powerful, the 2016 exudes pedigree and class from start to finish. I can't remember a straight Barbaresco here with this much fruit density and unctuous richness, and yet there is more than enough tannin and overall structure to give the wine its classically leaning feel. A blast of sweet red cherry fruit, tobacco, menthol licorice and smoke hits the potent finish. What a wine!" Vinous

      "Enticing aromas of violet, woodland berry, loose vineyard soil, wild mint and a hint of spearmint shape the intensely fragrant nose. The tense, young palate is still nervous but already boasts finesse, showing wild raspberry, crunchy red cherry, white pepper and star anise. Firm, refined tannins and racy acidity give it a linear, almost austere elegance, while bright acidity keeps it focused and balanced." (Cellar Selection) Wine Enthusiast

      "The 2016 Barbaresco is a tight and beautiful wine that will require more time to unwind and soften. This beautifully balanced vintage is characterized by a tight inner core of fruit that underlines the graceful aging capacity of these wines. The 2016 is shaping up to be one destined for long cellar aging. Now in its youth, the wine offers wild berry, rose and licorice aromas." Robert Parker

      Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2015 · Double-MAGNUM in OWC

      This Brunello 2015 seduces all senses with harmony and open personality. Deep ruby garnet, strong, extract sweet and expansive in the bouquet with ripe cherry fruit and a fine note of rosemary. Wide on the palate, long finish. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Medium, ripe red; good depth, fruit caramels, appealing; round base, ripe-fruity, caramel, fine tannin, good length." Merum

      "Aromas of mature woodland berry, underbrush, leather and camphor mingle together with a whiff of blue flower. The bright, polished palate offers juicy Marasca cherry, cranberry, cocoa and clove alongside taut fine-grained tannins that leave a firm, somewhat chalky finish. Fresh acidity keeps it balanced." Wine Enthusiast

      "Medium bright red. Red cherry, raspberry, tobacco and pepper on the nose. Supple, juicy and broad, with cool, perfumed flavors of red berries, cherry, licorice and herbs. In a lighter style for a Brunello, but shows good cut without coming off as hard and offers lovely acid-fruit balance." Vinous

      "An attractive mix of cherry, plum, earth, tar, spice, savory and balsamic flavors are the highlights of this well-balanced red. Licorice and salty elements emerge on the finish." Wine Spectator

      "Caparzo is one of two properties in Montalcino owned by the beautiful and charming Elisabetta Gnudi Angelini. This wine, the Caparzo 2015 Brunello di Montalcino is a very classic interpretation that delivers the goods without any distracting bells or whistles. The wine opens to red and purple fruit aromas with background tones of dried herb, potting soil, cedar wood and light spice. Fruit comes from a site with heavier clay soils, and you get hints of that extra density and richness here. This vintage offers all you need in a model Brunello from a very beautiful and generous vintage. I always admire the wines of Caparzo for their accessible and immediate drinking style." Robert Parker

      "Plum and ripe-berry with cedar and fresh-mushroom aromas and flavors. Full body, round and juicy tannins and a long and flavorful finish. Hints of chocolate. Shows intensity and focus." James Suckling

    • Chianti Classico Riserva DOCG 2016 (BIO) <br>Double-MAGNUM in OWC

      Chianti Classico Riserva DOCG 2016 (BIO) · Double-MAGNUM in OWC

      Querciabella's Riserva is a great blend from the three best Chianti locations in Greve, Radda and Gaiole. Pure elegance on all levels: Rich ruby, subtle aromas of cherry, aniseed and tobacco, followed by notes of jasmine and violet. On the palate pleasantly medium-weight, ripe black cherries and herbs, very typical for this terroir. Well-balanced fruit, the structure is dominated by obvious, well integrated tannins and a remarkably perfect acidity. Intense and persistent with sufficient extract for safe storage potential. Chapeau! SUPERIORE.DE

      "Fleshy, dark ruby. Very appealing and open nose, lots of ripe raspberry and blackberry, behind this fine spicy notes. Juicy and clear at the beginning and the end, beautifully worked out fruit, unfolds in the rear with dense tannin, very long finish." Falstaff

      "Beautiful, concentrated ruby. Quite closed and backward, but subtle and complex on the nose. Bags of concentrated fruit and yet super-elegant palate. Vibrant with perfectly built, long, fine tannins. Refreshing and complex." Jancis Robinson

      "Energy and firmness showing in a medium-bodied package of currants and cherries, as well as cedar and flowers. Lightly chewy tannins and a linear, tight finish. Needs some time to soften, but already a beauty. From biodynamically grown grapes." James Suckling

      "A big Chianti Classico, with vanilla and resin notes from new oak wrapped around cherry, strawberry, iron and earth flavors. This verges on racy despite the breadth, with a dense swath of tannins providing grip on the finish. The oak is up front and should be absorbed well over time. Best from 2022." Wine Spectator

      "The 2016 Chianti Classico Riserva is an attractive wine built on aromatics and structure, with the fruit more in the background. It will be interesting to see if it fleshes out with more time in bottle. Sweet red cherry, lavender, rose petal, mint and spice gradually develop in the glass, but the 2016 remains quite reticent. It will be interesting to see if time in bottle brings out more depth. Today, the 2016 is decidedly shy. I very much like the energy here." Vinous

      "Querciabella's 10,000 bottle annual production Riserva is a selection of superior lots. It blends fruit from Greve where their vineyards range from 350 to 550 metres, with grapes from Radda's high altitude stony sites and Gaiole's limestone rich soils. The 2016 is restrained but precise. Intriguing scents of spring blossoms, cranberry bush and potting soil are subtly laced with vanilla and smoke. Very polished and pure on palate with mouth-watering, tangy acidity and sinewy tannins. This sophisticated, buttoned-up Riserva could do with another year in the bottle." Decanter

      Dark ruby red, in the Bouquet aromas of ripe, red fruits and a fine wood spice. Elegant, soft, complex and fresh, the taste is exuberant and very flattering. A masterpiece from the Basilicata! SUPERIORE.DE

      "Here's another great vintage from Elena Fucci, the ascending star of a rising wine region in the deep south of Italy. The 2015 Aglianico del Vulture Titolo shows a dark garnet color and robust appearance. Very characteristic of this extreme territory, this is a dark and penetrating wine with etched mineral notes behind blackberry, plum and savory spice. This vintage presents an even darker quality of fruit. In the mouth, you get iron, blood and dark mineral nuances that are absolutely typical of these darkened volcanic soils." Robert Parker

      "Fresh and well-meshed, this is a medium- to full-bodied red, with creamy tannins and a rich note of smoke-tinged mineral underscoring the lovely range of ripe black cherry, dried thyme and fig cake flavors and hints of ground cumin and white pepper. This is round and finely balanced, with a long, lingering finish that echoes the spice and mineral detail." Wine Spectator

      "Elena Fucci crafts one single wine. The piercing and focused Titolo exudes incense, violet, dark earth and black cherry. Volcanic soil translates with vibrant energy. Muscular rather than plump and built to last." Decanter

      “Castello di Brolio” Chianti Classico Gran Selezione DOCG 2015 · Double-MAGNUM in OWC

      Castello di Brolio - a Super-Chianti Classico of the highest quality Gran Selezione and next to the Colledilà the second flagship of Barone Ricasoli. It comes from the vineyard of the same name, which has been the summer residence of the Ricasoli family since 1141. Powerful ruby, in the fragrance cherries, plums, some tobacco. On the palate it has a mature fruity note, racy, structured, long and full of finesse. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Brilliant, rich ruby with a slight garnet shimmer. Very open and accessible nose, smells seductively of ripe cherries, some cloves and blueberries. Round and smooth in the base and course, a very soft and round Chianti, fine-meshed tannin, a lot of sweet enamel." Falstaff

      "Floral, cherry and bell pepper nose and taste, fine tannins, then a very long finish and gentle oaky aftertaste." Decanter

      "Sweet, ripe cherry and raspberry flavors define this Chianti Classico from start to finish, augmented by almond, iron and tar accents, with a hefty dose of grainy tannins. All the elements come together on the juicy aftertaste." Wine Spectator

      "The 2015 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Castello di Brolio takes a few minutes to open and settle in the glass. The bouquet here is redolent of pressed cherry and dried blackberry with underbrush, dark spice, forest floor and even a touch of wild porcino mushroom. The mouthfeel is smooth and loosely textured, which gives the wine an accessible and immediate personality. These vineyard sites in Gaiole in Chianti are characterized by crushed alberese rock soils. These unique growing conditions always add to the focus and the sharpness of the aromas." Robert Parker

      "A fresh and linear Gran Selezione Chianti Classico with firm and chewy tannins and dark fruits. Full body. Structured. Give it two or three years to come together." James Suckling

      "The 2013 Aglianico del Vulture Titolo offers a rich and savory interpretation. The wine reveals earthy notes of freshly tilled earth and button mushroom and it also shows autumnal layers of crushed leaf and black currant. Together, these various elements come together in smooth harmony. The fruit element at the back is a good guarantee of the wine's future aging potential. The finish offers solid tannins and earthy grittiness." Robert Parker

      "Bright ruby. Piercing aromas of sour red cherry, black currant, violet and lavender. Then dense, sweet and complex, offering very pure mineral, deep plum and smoky berry flavors that have an almost metallic, steely quality. A wine of remarkable balance and finesse, but also powerful and concentrated. Absolutely gorgeous wine confirming the 2013 vintage to be a great one for Aglianico del Vulture."

    • Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2015 <br>Double-MAGNUM in OWC

      Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2015 · Double-MAGNUM in OWC

      Rose blossoms, mint, cinnamon, dark sweet cherries and smoke rise from the glass in a translucent, wiry Brunello that builds on energy, power and opulence. The 2015 edition is particularly precise and nuanced. Length and fruit are in the foreground here, and together with a clearly defined tannin structure, the team around Leopoldo Franceschi has created a real masterpiece here, which will only really reveal itself in the coming years. As in every good vintage, it is one of our favourites, and its outstanding value is also great fun! SUPERIORE.DE

      "Tints variously of flowers, berries and leather; in the mouth juicy fresh, elegant structure, with much melt and good evolution to fresh fruit aromas. Pleases with its finesse." Vinum

      "Firm, almost astringent, deep and complex, slightly cedar and tobacco scent of ripe red and a little black berries with a little tar, coffee and cocoa. Very firm, juicy, ripe fruit with a certain acid bite and present, youthful, yet fine and ripe tannins, delicately roasted and hinted bacon on the palate, spicy and dried vegetable to tobacco notes, again a hint of tar, persistent on the palate, has substance and depth, salty minerality, cedar notes, multi-layered, very good, extremely firm, concentrated finish with tart juice, salt and spice. Great." Wein-Plus

      "Bright, intense ruby grenade. Reveals itself with a seductive nose of blackberry, cherry and plum, with a hint of leather and cloves. Shows good tension on the palate, handy tannin in many layers, lots of juicy fruit, long finish." Falstaff

      "Tasted blind. Lustrous mid ruby. Lots of concentrated, sweet fruit on the nose. Fantastic chewy tannins and energetic, juicy fruit deliver tactile fireworks on the palate." Jancis Robinson

      "In 2015, the Brunello was crafted only from their highest vineyards, up to 400 metres. True to its balmy southern origins, it demonstrates immense concentration and ripeness, yet it remains balanced in its considerable proportions. Luxuriously textured fruit is firmly girdled by powerful, chewy tannins and there is no sacrifice of flavour either - iodine, earth, leather, sweet tobacco and dried thyme are woven throughout. The sapid finish lingers leisurely." Decanter

      "Wild herb and Mediterranean (i)macchia(n) notes mark this expressive red. Though well-endowed with tannins, this is on the sleek side, showing vibrant acidity. Cherry, strawberry, floral and tobacco flavors join the party as this cruises to a long finish. Best from 2023 through 2042." Wine Spectator

      "So many sour cherries rise up from the glass, along with orange rind and lemon peel. The full-bodied palate has a very serious and concentrated core of florals and fruit, and the tannins have an iron-fisted, strapping build. Long, chewy and structured. One of the best in years from here. Drink from 2025." James Suckling

      "The Il Poggione 2015 Brunello di Montalcino shows a darker and more concentrated appearance than many of its peers. The wine is beautifully abundant and fragrant in the most exuberant and expressive manner. You will recognize aromas of moist soil, tobacco and smoke. Candied cherry hovers over the entire bouquet. Fruit is sourced from older vines (all over 25 years old). Il Poggione occupies a special spot within the Montalcino appellation, and the area always produces slightly more concentrated and powerful wines. I find that to be particularly true in this gorgeous 2015 vintage. I am also very attracted to that almost dusty note of crushed mineral that rides long on the full-bodied finish. Il Poggione's Brunello is also distinguished by firm, youthful tannin that need a few more years to unwind." Robert Parker

      "Il Poggione 2015 Brunello di Montalcino offers up a dark, earthy, almost animal-like expression, showing black soil and undergrowth, giving way to crushed black cherry, dusty spice, and dried florals which lift the experience. On the palate, soft, fleshy textures usher in fresh cherry and strawberry, as brisk acids add energy, with savory herbs and minerals saturating, as the 2015 Il Poggione’s fruit nearly masks its structural core. The finish is long yet fresh, with classic, fine tannins, dried red fruits and pretty inner floral tones lingering throughout this perfectly balanced expression. The 2015 s pure class and built for the cellar." Vinous

    • "Castello di Brolio" Chianti Classico Gran Selezione DOCG 2016 <br>Double-MAGNUM in OWC

      “Castello di Brolio” Chianti Classico Gran Selezione DOCG 2016 · Double-MAGNUM in OWC

      Ricasoli's classic is made from 95% Sangiovese and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon. The grapes come from a south-facing plot of land at an ideal altitude of 250 to 450 metres above sea level.

      The 2016 edition of Castello di Brolio is a beautiful wine with great fullness and depth. Intense bouquet of small red berries, violets and spices. On the palate you can feel the precision and structure of an almost perfect 2016 vintage, with a well-proportioned tannin and acidity framework that promises a long life and interesting maturation. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Appealing reception on notes of red berries; smooth progression with well-integrated tannins, has melodiousness, juice and good length. Vinum

      "Shiny, medium-density ruby grenade. Open and accessible nose, shows notes of ripe cherries and raspberry, some orange peel and beeswax. Medium weight on the palate, very well integrated, fine tannin, polished." Falstaff

      "The 2016 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Castello di Brolio is a beautiful wine, dense, rich and lasting. The bouquet is intense and profound with layers of red and purple fruit that cede softly to spice, leather and sweet tobacco. The classic 2016 vintage is characterized by its freshness, precision and cellar-worthiness. You get all those qualities here in one very elegant but also food-friendly package." Robert Parker

      "There’s lots of clove character here, but the fruit really shines through, offering up intense hibiscus, orange rind, cranberries, Thai basil and dark chocolate. Full-bodied and really structured and refined with an agile core of red berries and savory undertones. Long but minerally on the finish." James Suckling
