2011 La Massa Giorgio Primo


2010 Monteti Caburnio

( Wine due beginning of September ) This is one of those rare modern Italian finds that amaze you with what it delivers for the money. It is hugely popular with our customers and always sells out very quickly. "Tenuta Monteti remains arguably the single finest source for reasonably priced wines in Maremma." R.Parker. Tenuta Monteti is located in Tuscany, in the southern Maremma district. It is here, close to the Mediterranean sea but protected by the hill after which the property is named, the “Monteti”, that Paolo Baratta after a long search found the perfect spot to fulfill his ambition: to produce wines of great personality and elegance, which are true expressions of their territory. "The 2010 Caburnio is one of the best Maremma wines in its price range. A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Alicante Bouschet and Merlot, the 2010 is warm, supple and resonant from start to finish. Mocha, espresso, plums, sweet spices and savory herbs bristle on the palate. 89/100" Antonio Galloni


2010 Fuligni Brunello di Montalcino

All labels bear the lion of St. Marco in honor of the Fulignis' Venetian origins. The family, however, has long been thoroughly Tuscan, founding the winery in 1923. The past year has seen further expansion of the vineyards ( now 25 productive acres out of the total 247 ). Altitude varies between 1250-1480 feet above sea level. Exposure is mainly eastern and southeastern, and terrain consists of stony/clayey, hillside "galestro" marls. The soil is low in organic components — therefore conducive to minuscule yields. Crops are further cut back by the vines’ age (12-30 years), their density, severe pruning and green harvest. "I really appreciate the dark-berry and burnt-orange aromas that follow through to a full body, very integrated tannins and a ripe, juicy fruit character. Savory, succulent and salty. Hints of chocolate and salted nuts. So juicy and gorgeous. A fabulous red. Drink now but also hold for years ahead. " 98/100 James Suckling and 96/100 from Wine Enthusiast writing "This opens with aromas of blue flower, red berry, menthol and baking spice. The delicious palate delivers juicy red cherry, crushed plum, cinnamon, white pepper and mineral. Impeccably balanced with polished tannins and freshness, it impresses for its combination of intensity and elegance. Drink 2018–2028."


2010 Poggio Antico Brunello di Montalcino

Poggio Antico has one of Montalcino's highest estates, with vineyards averaging 1476 feet above sea level, southwest of the famed medieval town. Both the unique location and altitude privilege the wines of Poggio Antico. The young and tireless owner, Paola Gloder, has been at the helm of Poggio Antico almost since its inception, when her father purchased 50 clayey, calcareous acres of Brunello di Montalcino vineyards, in 1984. Paola's husband, Alberto Montefiori, joined her in this task in 1998. In their forceful hands, the estate has seen a phenomenal growth, going from 50 to the present 80 acres under."A beautifully balanced, subtle Brunello with plum, berry, spice and fresh-mahogany character. Full to medium body, fine tannins and a long finish. Very intense and harmonious. This is always a beauty. Drink or hold." 97/100 James Suckling and 94/100 from Wine Enthusiast writing "Underbrush, red berry, tilled soil, pressed flower and a balsamic note are some of the aromas offered by this radiant red. The bright palate delivers crunchy wild cherry, baking spice and savory herb alongside assertive but refined tannins. It’s well balanced with fresh acidity. Drink 2018–2028.""


2007 Tenuta dell'Ornellaia Masseto

SOLD AS 3 BOTTLE ORIGINAL WOOD CASE (equivalent to $600/bottle). ‘The estate’s 2007 Masseto is fabulous. Loads of black cherry, blackberry and cassis are intermingled with minerals, violets and French oak. This is an especially sensual Masseto that impresses for its clarity, intensity and length. The wine’s pedigree is impossible to miss, in fact in one of my blind tastings it was immediately identifiable; the class and sheer personality of Masseto came through in spades.’ Antonio Galloni - Wine Advocate May 2010 – 96 Points


2010 Il Poggione Brunello di Montalcino

Il Poggione’s 2010 Brunello di Montalcino is a remarkably beautiful wine. Rose petal, mint, cinnamon, sweet dark cherries and smoke lift from the glass in a translucent, wiry Brunello built on energy and power. This is an especially lifted, precise and nuanced Brunello from Il Poggione, with more emphasis on length and mid-weight structure rather than overt volume. In many ways, the 2010 comes across as a modern-day version of the 1982 Riserva. Readers who have tasted that wine know just how special that is. For the money, there is not a single better wine being made in Montalcino than Il Poggione’s Brunello. Truth is, it is also better than many far more expensive offerings. There are two Brunellos I would buy confidently in any vintage. This is one of them. 94+/100 - Antonio Galloni The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino is a striking wine that shows uncompromising varietal pureness, albeit in a most concentrated and elaborate form. This is what great Sangiovese is all about. There’s so much happening on the nose and the wine brings you to cherry, spice, licorice, cured meat, pressed rose and grilled meat in equal measure. No one element overpowers the next. The mouthfeel is also tight and bright with the kind of fruit intensity that promises long cellar aging. This Brunello is only at the beginning of a long road ahead. The longer the wine stays in the glass, the more it offers in terms of complexity and intensity. This is a true standout that can be enjoyed for up to 20 years ahead. 98/100 - Monica Larner


2010 Le Pupille Saffredi

"The 2010 Saffredi (Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon) delivers gorgeous intensity and broad aromas of black berry, leather, crushed granite and lingering smoke. It’s a masterpiece on all happy fronts. The textural elegance is superb. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2025." 96/100 Parker


Il Poggione Grappa

Top quality but very well priced Grappa


2010 Buon Tempo Brunello di Montalciano Alta

"The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Alta sees 24 months of tonneaux, with 50% new wood. That added oak component gives the wine a dark, brooding personality and thicker concentration. Ultimately the bouquet is cleaner in the Alta expression and the dried fruit tones of dark berry and cassis have more resonance. Spicy notes of Spanish cedar and cinnamon fill in the rear." 92/100 - Monica Larner


2010 Buon Tempo Brunello di Montalcino

This is a new brunello for us. Located in the south of the Montalcino region their vineyards ( at 350m ) are protected by the hill of Amiata in the south and the Montalcino hill in the north. This creates a drier climate than the surrounding areas and combined with the poor galestro soils creates an ideal micro climate for the fussy sangiovese grape to obtain real ripeness and structure. As this is not a well known estate (yet) prices are very reasonable. Get in on the ground floor because Brunello is going through boom times as savy wine buyers and investors are jumping on these great wines- they will surely increase their prices.
