Capanna Brunello di Montalcino Riserva 2010 Italian Tuscan Red Wine 750 mL
Capanna Brunello di Montalcino Riserva 2010 Italian Tuscan Red Wine 750 mL

97 Points - James Suckling - "The purity of fruit in this is very impressive with cherry and raspberry character. Full body, chewy and rich yet ultra-fine tannin texture and a long, long finish of focused and subtle fruit. Loving this. Drink or hold." 

95 Points - Vinous / Antonio Galloni February 2016 - "A big, tannic wine, Capanna's 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is going to need a few years in the cellar to soften. Macerated dark cherries, mint, lavender, spices and earthiness gradually open up, yet the Riserva remains dominated by its acidity and tannin. Of course, that is exactly the way a young Riserva from a superb vintage should come across at this stage."

K Vintners Powerline Estate Syrah Walla Walla Valley Washington Red Wine 750 mL

95 Wine Spectator August 31, 2017

A knockout Syrah, precise and impeccably built but explosive with personality. Smoky roasted meat and floral blackberry aromas combine with bold, supple flavors of dark plum, pepper and licorice. The tannins are big but polished. Drink now through 2024. 1,319 cases made. –TF

Damijan Prelit Rosso Italian Red Wine 750 mL
Damijan Prelit Rosso Italian Red Wine 750 mL

About the Vineyards: Region, Friuli Venezia Giulia. Subregion,Monte Calvario (Gorizia), southern exposure Soil, marl, rocky Cultivation method: guyot Damijan Podversic started out in the family business as a negociant. But when he found a small abandoned plot in the Collio Goriziano, he ignored the common attitude that it was too difficult to work and eagerly bought it. He cleared the land, rebuilt terraces, and set to replanting it: not only does he now cultivate top-quality grapes, but his once skeptical neighbors eye his steep mountaintop vineyard with great envy. About the wine: 70% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon. Fermented on the skins in small conical oak barrels for 60-90 days. After fermentation, it is aged in barrels of 20 and 30 hl for 23 months and aged in bottle for 6 months. Podversic's work in the cellar is no less daring and no less successful. Breaking the confines of tradition and shunning modern practices like the use of stainless steel, Damijan pursues natural winemaking, which he learned from the great Friulian producer Josko Gravner. He never bottles or releases a wine unless it has had ample time to develop; he even insists on bottling the Kaplja in December while the moon is waning. Though already producing excellent wines, this young man holds great promise for the future. The sediment in the bottle serves to preserve and protect the wine. TASTING NOTES Color: deep ruby-violet Nose: cacao, smoke, dark ripe fruit, earth and spicy notes hinting at eucalyptus. Taste: wonderful structured balance of fruit, acidity, and silky tannins including herbaceous earthy tones.

Antico Podere Gagliole Chianti Classico Rubiolo 2013 Italian Red Wine 750 mL

For the 2013 Vintage

91 Points Wine Advocate!

"The 2013 Chianti Classico Rubiolo offers a pure core of bright cherry fruit with cherry liqueur and candied cherry for added intensity. Besides that very obvious cherry theme, the bouquet makes room for added spice, leather and polished mineral. Rubiolo offers a very elegant and clean presentation for those who enjoy the bright flavors and crisp nuances of Chianti Classico." - Robert Parker

 

91 Points Vinous!

"The 2013 Chianti Classico Rubiolo is a gorgeous entry- level wine from Gagliole. Soft, fleshy and expressive, the 2013 hits all the right notes, with vibrant red cherry fruit and fabulous balance. Silky tannins add to an impression of finesse, while attractive floral and spiced notes give the wine an attractive upper register." -  Antonio Galloni

Dessimis Vie Di Romans 2014 Pinot Grigio Italian White Wine 750mL
Dessimis Vie Di Romans 2014 Pinot Grigio Italian White Wine 750mL

Previous Vintage [2013] rated 91 points from the Wine Advocate!

eRobertParker.com, #Interim - May 2016

"Here is another blockbuster from Vie di Romans. The 2013 Friuli Isonzo Pinot Grigio Dessimis is a lush and thickly concentrated effort with pristine aromas of pear, Golden Delicious apple, preserved lemon and acacia-infused honey. The wine is interesting from a textural point of view in that it offers good heft and complexity, although it never feels heavy or flat. It maintains a sense of brightness and energy all the while. This Pinot Grigio is fermented in stainless steel and aged in oak. 

Gianfranco Gallo's Vie di Romans is one of the most accomplished, quality-minded estates in Italy. I am always impressed by their offerings and this selection from the 2013 vintage is outstanding. Chardonnay is presented in an unoaked version and in an oak-aged version. Both of these wines stand out thanks to the impossible creaminess and finesse they achieve. Drink: 2016-2022"
