2012 Tiberio

  • Montepulciano
  • Abruzzo
  • Italy
  • Red
  • 750 ml

"Medium ruby-red. Red berry, sour red cherry and sweet spice aromas are lifted by a penetrating floral perfume. Displaying outstanding sappy cut and precision to the perfumed flavors of cherry, red berries, minerals and aromatic spices. The building, juicy finish spreads out to saturate the palate, with the tannins remarkably fine-grained. I found this to be very Pinot Noir-like."

  • Nebbiolo

"Without a doubt, this is one of the top easiest-to-drink wines I tasted this year. A approachable and versatile wine that brings on a hearty appetite for genuine home cooking. The wine is ripe with dark fruit nuances and it offers a complete bouquet that is comprised of dark fruit, pressed rose and spice. Despite its apparent simplicity, this Nebbiolo is not without its complexity or depth."

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."
