Tenuta dell'Ornellaia 2012/2013 Ornellaia 750ml

$203.99

Critical Acclaim: The 2012 Bolgheri Superiore Ornellaia is very similar to the 2011 Ornellaia that precedes it. These were both hot vintages, but 2012 saw the heat towards the end of the growing season. In fact the harvest in 2012 came two weeks earlier...

Azelia 2010/2011 Barolo Margheria DOCG 750ml

$126.00

"The 2010 Barolo Margheria comes across as quite compact at this stage but then again, it is a young Serralunga Barolo. Iron, graphite, smoke and crushed rocks seem to resonate off a core of expressive dark fruit in a muscular, implosive Barolo endowed...

Azelia 2010/2011 Barolo San Rocco DOCG 750ml

$126.00

"As it usually is, the 2011 Barolo San Rocco is the darkest and richest of the Azelia Barolos, but it too is quite polished in this vintage. Dark red cherries, licorice, spices and new leather flesh out in a Barolo that shows the depth of Serralunga, but...

Talenti 2011 Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 1.5L

$199.82

"Talenti's 2010 Brunello di Montalcino sees fruit sourced from the Sant'Angelo in Colle subzone of the appellation. This is a very satisfactory expression with pretty mineral tones of ash and crushed stone that form sharp contours against ripe fruit,...

$3,695.48

Winemaker's Notes: TASTING NOTES An intense ruby red in color, at times impenetrably so, the 2011 Solaia shows intensely warm aromas which reflect the climate of the season while maintaining a delicate freshness as well. On the palate, the ripe red...

Il Carnasciale 2008/2010 Il Caberlot Toscana IGT 1.5L

$360.70

Critical Acclaim: The 2008 Il Caberlot is one of the more approachable vintages of this wine I have ever tasted. Dark red fruit, grilled herbs, espresso and spices are supported by finessed, silky tannins. The 2008 shows excellent length and persistence...

Il Carnasciale 2012 Il Caberlot Toscana IGT 1.5L

$282.43

The 2009 Carnasciale emerges from the glass with freshly cut flowers, raspberry jam, spices and licorice, all in a radiant, supple style typical of the year. The 2009 needs another year or two for the oak to integrate, but it is a pretty, feminine wine...

2013 Vintage: Dark red cherry, plum, mocha, espresso, licorice and smoke are pushed front and center in the 2013 Orma. A super-expressive, Merlot-based Maremma, the Orma is showing beautifully today. With time in the glass, the wine gains creaminess and...
