Interestingly, this vibrant medium-bodied wine starts very herbal but finishes very fruity."

  • Enta
  • Sicily
  • Erse
  • Italy
  • Red
  • 750 ml

"Bright red. The nose of red fruits, dried rose, orange peel, minerals and underbrush has a grapey nuance. Then saline and soil-driven, displaying a firming edge of acidity to the floral red cherry flavors. A lovely wine that neatly combines a rustic chewiness and a plush ripe cherry mouthfeel; very Nerello Mascalese. Finishes with sneaky length."

  • 750 ml

"This embodies the delicate and polished side of Sangiovese without the extra distractions that come with over extraction or abundant oak. This wine speaks of the vintage and the grapes. Delicate notes of tar and smoke rise above wild berry and cherry aromas. This is great choice at an amazing low price."

"The bouquet opens to wild fruit aromas with distinct mineral tones that define and delineate the aromatic offering. The mouthfeel reveals good complexity and lots of bright freshness. Vino Nobile di Montepulciano is a red wine that can be consumed young. In fact, I would recommend an early drinking window in the case of this wine."

2013 Marchesi Di Gresy

  • Nebbiolo
  • Martinenga Vineyard
  • Piedmont
  • Barbaresco
  • Italy
  • Red
  • 750 ml

"This is soft, open-knit and gracious, especially for a late-ripening vintage, until a burst of acidity kicks in on the finish. Sweet tobacco, menthol, licorice, macerated cherry and mint are all nicely laced together, but the wine is naturally closed and in need of further cellaring. This is a typically refined, sensual wine from this site, with high-toned aromatics, pliant fruit and good tannic grip on the finish. This is very nicely done."

  • 750 ml

"The 2012 Brunello di Montalcino opens to thick layers of dark fruit, mocha, spice, leather, cigar box and pipe tobacco. A distant note of dried fruit or blackberry confit adds softness and sweetness. Give this wine a few more years to flesh out and integrate."

2012 Isole e Olena

  • Proprietary Blend
  • Cepparello
  • Tuscany
  • Italy
  • Red
  • 750 ml

"This is magnificent. Radiant, pliant and super-expressive, this offers magnificent intensity, with silky tannins wrapped around a core of rich, dark-toned fruit. The intensity of the fruit suggests a warm vintage, but the structure is more medium in body and typical of a cooler year. Today, the 2012 gives the impression it will drink well pretty much upon release, but history has taught me Cepparello often shuts down in bottle. Either way, the 2012 is superb."

"A decidedly sensual, this inviting effort fleshes out in the glass with an effortless, inviting personality that is impossible to resist. Deep red cherry and plum notes open up first, followed by the classic floral notes that are so typical of this site. This Bricco delle Viole is quite forward and fruit-driven, with essentially none of the angular "
