      Brunello di Montalcino “I Vigneti” DOCG 2010 Horizontale · 3 Bottles in OWC

      Beautiful horizontal in exclusive original wooden box of 3 - limited edition of all produced single layer riserve of the outstanding Brunello vintage 2010. SUPERIORE.DE

      1 bottle à 0,75l | Brunello di Montalcino "Vigna del Lago" DOCG 2010

      Brunello from the single vineyard Vigna del Lago is a classic-elegant wine in Riserva quality. In the nose aromas of cherry, chocolate and spices that spread widely. On the palate compact and firmly structured, dense fruit, tannin and acidity in good balance, long and with good future prospects. SUPERIORE.DE

      "The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Vigna del Lago is a very linear and tight red wine with a great sense of focus and direct intensity. The wine is not labeled Riserva, but it is aged for one additional year compared to a Brunello annata. Bright berry and dried fruit aromas are followed by very etched mineral notes with dusty graphite and dried spice. I tasted this wine after the bottle had been opened for a day and those distinctive aromas of crushed granite appeared even more evident. This is a lovely wine that underlines the austere and powerful side of this classic vintage." Robert Parker

      "There's a dried fruit and smoke character to this wine with an underlying minerality. Full body, firm tannins and a long flavorful finish. Structured yet very, very fine." James Suckling

      1 bottle à 0,75l | Brunello di Montalcino "Poggio al Granchio" DOCG 2010

      Brunello Poggio al Granchio from the same named vineyard smells of sweet cherries, tobacco, flowers and herbs. Multilayered and beautifully textured, this 2010 shows the essence of the great year in its silky, radiant personality and with clear Riserva attributes. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Shining ruby with a fine garnet shimmer. Intense and appealing nose, smells of ripe plums, raspberries and fine balsamic notes, inviting. Intense fruit on the palate, opens with fine-meshed tannins, soft and supple, very precise. very long finish." Falstaff

      "The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Poggio al Granchio is a shapely and powerful wine with a tight approach and a smooth succession of wild berry, spice and cola-like aroma. The wine shows a lot of the balsam herb aromas that are so unique to Sangiovese in the Montalcino appellation. In the mouth, this wine presents tightly-knit tannins that should relax and flesh out with more aging time in the bottle. I would suggest waiting at least three years before popping the cork." Robert Parker

      "A firm and tight red with cherry, cedar and light chocolate aromas and flavors. Full and compressed. Dusty tannins. Long and flavorful." James Suckling

      "This is austere, with a dense matrix of tannins supporting cherry, tobacco, stone and leather flavors. Stays fresh, featuring a coating of dusty tannins on the finish." Wine Spectator

      "Maturing ruby with orange rim. Subdued spice nose. Slumbering concentration. Hints of dried fruit, but really at the beginning of its development. Great balance and tannic tension, but in a reluctant phase, it seems." Jancis Robinson

      1 bottle à 0,75l | Brunello di Montalcino “Vigna Spuntali” DOCG 2010

      Fruity fragrance, slim body, structure, volume, elegance and a sparkling clean finish are the hallmarks of the Vigna Spuntali from single vineyard, its terroir and the great vintage 2010. A fantastic drop in the status of a Riserva, which we want to enjoy already today and not only in a few years. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Sparkling, intense ruby garnet. A lush nose with intense notes of plums, pickled cherries, some liquorice and brown nuts in the background. On the palate, a lot of juicy, ripe fruit, brings full pressure, fills the palate well, dense and deep, gripping, firm tannin, spans a wide arch, long finish." Falstaff

      "Showing much riper fruit characteristics, the 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Vigna Spuntali offers dark fruit and blackberry backed by spice, leather and tobacco. This is a profound and powerful wine that is released as a Riserva with one extra year of bottle aging after the five years you get with a Brunello annata. The results are sophisticated and deep with many layers of fruit, spice and balsam herb. The wine feels young in the mouth thanks to the tight tannins and bright acidity. These qualities should help it age throughout the years. I like this expression because it delivers loads of fruit and power at the same time." Robert Parker

      "Lots of dried cherry and dried spices such as cloves and chili. Full body, silky and polished tannins end with a flavorful finish." James Suckling

      “I Vigneti di Castello di Ama” IGT/DOCG 2011 Horizontale · 3 Bottles in Gift Box

      Rare horizontal in a gift box of 3 - an exclusive and strictly limited selection of the Crus "Vigna L'Apparita", "Vigneto La Casuccia" and "Vigneto Bellavista" of the vintage 2011.

      1 bottle à 0,75l | "Vigna L'Apparita" Merlot Toscana IGT 2011 in gift box

      Elegant Merlot from high vineyards, whose further development in the bottle fascinates again and again. Very inviting bouquet, ripe berry notes, elderberry and coffee. On the palate extremely fine and structured, dense, polished tannins, finishes very long and calm. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Compared to 2010, the 2011 L'Apparita (100% Merlot) is a very different wine. It's impossible to imagine how Castello di Ama could improve on the utterly divine and delicious 2010, but I liked 2011 even more. Again, I just feel that this estate with its vineyards that reach beyond 500 meters in altitude performs best with warm vintages such as this one. Those who love Castello di Ama's wines will have to wait until the 2013 vintage is released. This is a gorgeous wine that sings in a loud and graceful voice. That extra cherry softness of Merlot has been pulled back to a perfect point. The wine offers layers of richness and suppleness. The effects are layered, complex and absolutely engaging. This is a standout wine." Robert Parker

      "A deep and beautiful red with ripe berry, plum and orange peel character. Almost exotic in style. Full body, ultra-fine tannins and a caressing texture. Goes on for minutes. So beautiful now but will be event better in 2018. Greatest L'Apparita ever?" James Suckling

      1 bottle à 0,75l | "Vigneto La Casuccia" Chianti Classico Gran Selezione DOCG 2011 in gift box

      Chianti Classico La Casuccia from a single vineyard of the same name with Gran-Selezione status combines in its typical way exemplary excellent structure with highest elegance. SUPERIORE.DE

      "The 2011 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Vigneto La Casuccia is opulent and voluptuous with thick lines of dark fruit and spice that characterize the bouquet. More than heft and power, this wine delivers excellent complexity with layers of black truffle, grilled herb and cherry cola that add vertical lift." Robert Parker

      "A wine of pure femininity and grace, the 2011 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Vigneto La Casuccia is wonderfully fleshy and radiant in the glass. Rose petal, sweet red cherry, tobacco, mint and spices meld together as this effortless, supple wine shows off its undeniably appealing personality. Sweet, silky tannins wrap around a super-expressive finish laced with knock-out aromatics. The 2011 is firing on all cylinders today." Antonio Galloni

      "Amazing aromas of crushed dark fruits with raspberry, blueberry and blackberry. Dried flowers and violets too, plus tanned leather. Full body, ultra-fine yet dense tannins and a finish that lasts for minutes. Stunning texture. One of the greatest Chianti Classicos ever made." James Suckling

      1 bottle à 0,75l | "Vigneto Bellavista" Chianti Classico Gran Selezione DOCG 2011 in gift box

      The 2011 edition of the Gran Selezione from the Bellavista vineyard is rich and dark with aromas of wild cherry, smoke, liquorice, menthol and tobacco. Extremely attractive and full-bodied on the palate, firm tannins form the backbone of this virile, potent wine. SUPERIORE.DE

      "The 2011 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Vigneto Bellavista opens to dark concentration, bold intensity and an immediate delivery of ripe fruit flavors. Stylistically speaking, this single-vineyard Grand Selezione is extracted, muscular and extremely fruit forward. The heat of the 2011 vintage comes through loud and clear. Happily, the mouthfeel is tighter and more focused with dusty minerality on the tannins and long persistency." Robert Parker

      "Ama's 2011 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Vigneto Bellavista shows the darker, more brooding style of Sangiovese at Ama. Graphite, smoke, tar, licorice, incense and cloves wrap around a core of dark fruit. A wine of gravitas and vertical structure, the 2011 will reward several decades of cellaring. This is an unusually stern wine for the vintage though. Readers will have to be patient to experience the Bellavista at its best. Still, I can't help notice how much the 2011 has grown in bottle over the last year." Antonio Galloni

      Barbaresco “Selezione Tre Vigneti” Riserva DOCG 2007 · 3 MAGNUM-Bottles in OWC

      La Spinettas Riserve of the Barbaresco vineyards Gallina, Starderi and Valeirano are filled only in the best vintages and are sold exclusively in magnum bottles. Here you get all three single layers from the top vintage 2007 in strictly limited 3er wooden box. SUPERIORE.DE

      "A highlight of my Piedmont tasting tour this spring was my visit with Giorgio Rivetti of La Spinetta. We met at the modern Campè winery that is located at the bottom of the next hill over from the historic Castello di Grinzane Cavour, an important landmark for the entire Barolo appellation. Upon my arrival, I was greeted to a long table fitted with an equally long line of wine bottles. I counted 35 of them. It’s a good thing I had built in extra time before my next tasting appointment that day. The La Spinetta wines are truly outstanding. I would especially like to draw your attention to the late-release wines (produced in magnum only) from the 2007 vintage." Robert Parker

      1 bottle à 1,5l
      Barbaresco "Vigneto Gallina" Riserva DOCG 2007

      "Only in the best vintages, La Spinetta releases magnum-only editions of its top wines. These wines are generally released ten years after the harvest following additional bottle aging (and one extra year of oak) under the most stringent conditions back at the winery. This year, one of these absolute gems is the 2007 Barbaresco Riserva Gallina (Magnum). I am a huge fan of the sheer elegance produced in this vineyard. This quality has been harnessed to perfection in the case of this wine. It is beautifully evolved, long and silky. Yet, the primary fruit sings loudest of all. This is a delightful achievement." Robert Parker

      Barbaresco "Vigneto Starderi" Riserva DOCG 2007

      "The 2007 Barbaresco Riserva Starderi (Magnum) immediately flaunts the density and important structure that is associated with this celebrated vineyard site. This is an overtly generous and bountiful expression of Nebbiolo that offers thick layers of aromatic intensity. The wine's best asset is the intact and vibrant quality of the primary fruit—so presented now, eleven years after the harvest. This is an expensive bottle for sure, but it does award a delicious and unforgettable experience." Robert Parker

      1 bottle à 1,5l
      Barbaresco "Vigneto Valeirano" Riserva DOCG 2007

      "This wine represents a crowning achievement among an elite group of magnum-only delayed releases. The 2007 Barbaresco Riserva Valeirano (Magnum) is nothing short of magnificent. It is intense and articulate in ways you don't expect. Specifically, I am referring to the vibrant and dazzling quality of fruit that is traveling full speed ahead. Nothing about this wine has slowed down. In fact, I would expect this beautiful interpretation to pick up further speed and complexity as it continues its evolution. This wine is old but also new, sweet but also savory and powerful but also elegant. It is a wine of profound contrasts that find impeccable unity despite those inherent contradictions. Congratulations to La Spinetta." Robert Parker
