      Selezione “La Botte di Gianni” · Trebbiano d’Abruzzo Riserva DOC 2010 · Montepulciano d’Abruzzo Riserva DOC 2010 · 2x3 Bottles in OWC

      Over the course of three decades, Gianni Masciarelli has created one of the leading wineries in Italy. He died far too early in the summer of 2008, his love was for the landscape, the people and the grape varieties of Abruzzo. For the wines he always chose Montepulciano d'Abruzzo and Trebbiano d'Abruzzo.

      Today the winery is successfully continued by Giannis wife, Marina Cvetic and daughter Miriam. And they vinify with "La Botte di Gianni" his vision of Trebbiano and Montepulciano.

      3 bottles of 0,75l | Trebbiano d'Abruzzo "La Botte di Gianni" Riserva DOC 2010

      Of a rich straw yellow colour, clean, aromatic bouquet of ripe tropical fruit. On the palate very full-bodied, but beautifully clear, long finish. Finest Riserva quality. SUPERIORE.DE

      "This shows the magic of whites from Abruzzo: bright and brilliant and intense with sliced limes, apples and minerals. Its full-bodied and wonderful acidity gives this wine tension and brightness. Named after the late Gianni Masciarelli, founder of the winery, only 892 bottles were produced of these. Think grand cru Chablis." James Suckling

      3 bottles of 0,75l | Montepulciano d'Abruzzo "La Botte di Gianni" Riserva DOC 2010

      Deep dark ruby sparkling, aromas of blackberry, elderberry, leather and some cinnamon. Dense tannin on the palate, much depth, tightly structured, elegant enamel, long. Finest Riserva quality. SUPERIORE.DE

      "With only 869 bottles produced, the 2010 Montepulciano d'Abruzzo La Botte di Gianni is dedicated to the winery's visionary founder. Gianni Masciarelli died of a sudden heart attack in 2008. This beautiful rendition speaks directly to the personality of the man. This is a strong, stubborn, energetic and complex red wine with thick layers of dark fruit, spice and cigar box. The wine shows a firm tannic background and an uncompromising style." Robert Parker

    • Barbaresco Riserva "Cru Collection" DOCG 2014 Horizontale <br>9 Bottles in OWC

      Barbaresco Riserva “Cru Collection” DOCG 2014 Horizontale · 9 Bottles in OWC

      Unique horizontal in an exclusive original OWC of 9 bottles - a limited edition of just a few 100 copies of all the individual layers of the outstanding 2014 Piedmont vintage produced. SUPERIORE.DE

      1 bottle (0,75l) | Barbaresco Rio Sordo Riserva DOCG 2014

      Rio Sordo Riserva is particularly dense, rich and balanced. In the bouquet roses, spices and raspberries. On the palate very complex and of splendid depth. The floral notes to the final make this feminine Barbaresco Riserva irresistible even at a young age. SUPERIORE.DE

      "The 2014 Barbaresco Riserva Rio Sordo represents a jump forward in structure compared to the other three vineyards (Pora, Pajè and Ovello) that were tasted before this wine. The Riserva Rio Sordo shows a dark and solid personality, with a tight core of black fruit that will relax and unwind with more bottle aging in the cellar. It is also slightly sharper and more focused in terms of mouthfeel, with the kind of tannic tightness you always get with young Nebbiolo in the cooler vintages such as 2014. Barbaresco lovers should jot this one down." Robert Parker

      Robert Parker: 96 points

      1 bottle (0,75l) | Barbaresco Muncagota Riserva DOCG 2014

      Muncagota, with a complex scent of cherries and raspberries, smoke, tobacco and spices, offers a remarkable fullness, sweetness and length to the palate from a young age. A well-structured, classic Barbaresco, which already gives us pleasure today and certainly for many years to come. Undoubtedly also its first-class value. SUPERIORE.DE

      "The 2014 Barbaresco Riserva Muncagota is beautifully polished and bright, with dark berry fruit, ripe cherry, crushed stone and pressed flowers. The wine is compact and firm, and you feel the tannins and power in the mouth. The Muncagota remains slightly more closed in terms of the bouquet, but this will open up with some time." Robert Parker

      Robert Parker: 94 points

      1 bottle (0,75l) | Barbaresco Pora Riserva DOCG 2014

      Pora overwhelms with incredible complexity and a variety of aromas ranging from raspberries and liquorice to dried flowers, spices and white truffles. On the palate, Pora Noblesse offers a certain noblesse and seriousness before it opens with bite and juiciness and ends velvety wide. SUPERIORE.DE

      "I had tasted this vintage last year as a barrel sample. Now a fully complete wine, the 2014 Barbaresco Riserva Pora did not disappoint, and even jumped up a few points. The Riserva Pora opens to dark fruit intensity with a slightly more accessible quality. Those lovely floral tones of lavender and violet are ever present. After having spent three years in oak and another year in the bottle, this wine offers a looser mouthfeel in terms of tannic structure, making it a bit more open and immediate in personality. You could uncork this bottle in 2020 if you just can't wait, but ideally, it is meant for the longer haul." Robert Parker

      Robert Parker: 94 points

      1 bottle (0,75l) | Barbaresco Ovello Riserva DOCG 2014

      The fine layer Barbaresco Ovello impresses with lively garnet red and a fragrant blend of red fruits, a hint of mint and sweet spices. Impressive in typicity and vintage expression with a great taste that flows softly and harmoniously into the long finish. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Always one of my favorite wines from Produttori del Barbaresco, the 2014 Barbaresco Riserva Ovello lays out a broad and soft mouthfeel, with tannins that have already been polished and integrated thanks to ample time in the bottle already. It's safe to say that this Ovello cru loyally demonstrates the level of richness and textural softness that this site is known for. The bouquet is redolent of bright berry fruit with cherry, blackberry and plum. Also, the 2014 vintage was a warm one at the end of the growing season, and you taste a little bit of that ripeness here too." Robert Parker

      Robert Parker: 95 points

      1 bottle (0,75l) | Barbaresco Rabajà Riserva DOCG 2014

      Rabaja is an elegant and great wine. A well-drained fruity kernel with hints of roses, menthol, minerals and tar. Rabaja offers the whole range: beautiful fruit, defined body, excellent length, fine tannic acid and wonderful balsamic notes. SUPERIORE.DE

      "The 2014 Barbaresco Riserva Rabajà shows excellent textural richness with dark fruit, followed by notes of tobacco and tilled earth. Black truffle and dried fruit converge on the bouquet to add to the intensity. You really appreciate the freshness and sheer power of this succulent, well-structured and medium to full-bodied Barbaresco. This one's the real deal." Robert Parker

      Robert Parker: 96 points

      1 bottle (0,75l) | Barbaresco Montestefano Riserva DOCG 2014

      Montestefano Riserva 2014 confirms its shape of recent years. Powerful, profound and with potential for a felt eternity. SUPERIORE.DE

      "One of the many highlights in this range, the Barbaresco Riserva Montestefano is superb. A big enrobing wine, the Montestefano wraps around the palate with stunning depth. Today, the Montestefano is utterly embryonic, and yet it exudes depth, resonance and pure class. The Montestefano is one of the more complete wines in the range because of the way it deftly balances fruit intensity and structure. Readers will have to be patient, though." Vinous

      Vinous: 95 points

      1 bottle (0,75l) | Barbaresco Pajé Riserva DOCG 2014

      This cru from the Pajé site in the heart of the Barbaresco region offers a mineral scent and fruity taste. The bouquet exudes notes of sour cherries, tobacco and toasted country bread, on the nose incredibly deep and elegant, in addition a splendid, ripe fruit in perfect play with the tannins. Already a classic today! SUPERIORE.DE

      "Beams of minerality and salinity cut through a core of dense, dark fruit in the 2014 Barbaresco Riserva Pajè. Deeply pitched and tannic, the 2014 is a super-classic, youthfully austere Barbaresco that is going to need time to be at its best. Readers should expect a firm, structured Barbaresco. The finish alone is striking. Crushed rocks, minerals, sage and lavender add nuance to this chiseled, finely sculpted Barbaresco. Readers who can find it should not hesitate." Vinous

      Vinous: 96 points

      1 bottle (0,75l) | Barbaresco Asili Riserva DOCG 2014

      Here there is a successful separation of powers between extract, tannin and alcohol. The spicy fruit aroma with seductive notes of leather and tobacco and the power and elegance of taste guarantee a magnificent sweetness and high enjoyment. SUPERIORE.DE

      "The 2014 Barbaresco Riserva Asili is somber and dense in this vintage. Silky Asili tannins bring out the wine's voluptuousness and soft contours. Dark red cherry and plum fruit show some of the typical Asili sensuality, but the 2014 is a powerhouse that is going to need time to come around. In 2014, Asili is unusually – almost uncharacteristically – austere." Vinous

      Vinous: 95+ points

      1 bottle (0,75l) | Barbaresco Montefico Riserva DOCG 2014

      Barbaresco Riserva Montefico has energy and sheer strength with a certain severity that will ease over the next few years. Dark red fruits, leather, aniseed and other spices are among its diverse aromas. SUPERIORE.DE

      "The 2014 Barbaresco Riserva Montefico is another of the more inward, reticent wines in the range. A core of huge dark fruit virtually covers the beams of incisive tannin that are such a signature of this Barbaresco site. Dark red plum, chalk, cured meats, plum, iron, smoke, leather and licorice confer attractive elements of savoriness to this potent, structured Barbaresco." Vinous

      “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."

      "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

      "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
