Fattoria La Lecciaia Rosso di Montalcino 2011 Fattoria La Lecciaia Rosso di Montalcino 2011

A screaming deal!

"Penetrating ink and flint nuances complicate bright red cherry, strawberry and violet aromas on the enticing nose. Bright and fresh in the mouth, with creamy, floral red and dark cherry flavors and a persistent spiciness. A perfumed mineral tang repeats at the back. Very refined Rosso di Montalcino with sneaky concentration and lovely purity of fruit."  Vinous (Galloni) 90 points

Uccelliera Rosso Di Montalcino 2013 Product #29517 (In Stock)
Uccelliera Rosso Di Montalcino 2013 Uccelliera Rosso Di Montalcino 2013

Antonio Galloni rates this as the best Rosso di Montalcino ever from Uccelliera - above even the brilliant 2007 - and we have to agree.  Give it a swirl and it smells like very good Brunello, with intense scents of dark cherry, leather, smoke and dark flowers.  On the palate, it's a terrific marriage of the best of Rosso - medium bodied, transparent, fresh - with gusty Brunello flavors of ripe fruit, leather, spice, flowers and more. The wine finishes with muscular (but very ripe) tannins and a lash of juicy acidity as the fruit keeps on flowing. Tempting with a decant and food right now, but this is a Rosso that will really blossom with a year or two in cellar and drink through the early 2020s easily.

“The 2013 Rosso di Montalcino captures the essence of this site rich in clay and limestone, where the wines are ample and broad in style. Dark cherry, plum, smoke, lavender and spice notes blossom in a resonant Rosso loaded with personality. Readers who want to explore the Uccelliera wines should start here; this is a fabulous showing from Andrea Cortonesi.”  Antonio Galloni 91 points

Fattoria La Lecciaia Brunello Di Montalcino 2010 Fattoria La Lecciaia Brunello Di Montalcino 2010

 

"This is very strong showing from La Lecciaia, one of Montalcino's under the radar estates. The wines show gorgeous Sangiovese purity. The wines are fairly classic in style across the board.  La Lecciaia's 2010 Brunello di Montalcino is beautifully layered in the glass, with gorgeous intrigue, depth and personality all on full display. There is a sense of translucent finesse in the 2010 that is impossible to miss. Sweet red cherry, stone fruit, mint and wild flowers all grace the exquisite finish. What a pretty wine this is."  Vinous (Antonio Galloni) 94 points

Fattoria La Lecciaia Brunello Di Montalcino Riserva 2009 Fattoria La Lecciaia Brunello Di Montalcino Riserva 2009

It's amazing that this small (15 hectare) estate can make such great wines and still stay under the radar of point-chasing collectors.  Impressive and delicious.

"The 2009 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is a pretty, soft wine to drink now and over the next decade. Sweet red stone fruits, mint, white pepper, anise and wild flowers are all laced together in this gracious, beautifully textured Brunello."  Vinous (Galloni) 91 points

"Floral, strawberry, cherry, spice and woodsy aromas and flavors are the hallmarks of this elegant, juicy and harmonious red, with a solid structure and a terrific aftertaste of berry, mineral and spice. Complex and resonant."Wine Spectator 95 points

Collosorbo Brunello Di Montalcino 2009 Product #30471 (In Stock)
Collosorbo Brunello Di Montalcino 2009 Collosorbo Brunello Di Montalcino 2009

A fine 2009, showing the vintages open accessibility with plenty of depth and class and an exotic tobacco/herbal twist.

"Sexy, oak-spiced syrupy raspberry and black cherry aromas are accented by flowers and minerals, with a sneaky cinnamon note emerging with air. Lush dark berry flavors are juicy and bright, with tangy minerality adding energy. Impressively bright on the long finish, which features good thrust."  IWC 90 points

"Distinctive balsamic notes give way to floral, berry and herb flavors in this elegant yet intense red. Supple and balanced, featuring ample tannins to develop over the near term. Best from 2016 through 2030."Wine Spectator 92 points

Ciacci Piccolomini Brunello Di Montalcino Pianrosso 2008 Product #30475 (In Stock)
Ciacci Piccolomini Brunello Di Montalcino Pianrosso 2008 Ciacci Piccolomini Brunello Di Montalcino Pianrosso 2008

A lovely, ready now, Brunello of fine weight and power.

"Freshly cut flowers, dark red fruit, licorice, spices and menthol are all layered together nicely in the glass. A wine of considerable texture and depth, the 2008 Pianrosso should drink well for at least a handful of years. There is no shortage of depth, richness or complexity in this fine effort. This is an especially concentrated style for the year, but it works. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2025."Wine Advocate 91 points

"Graphite and cedar aromas lead off in this cherry-, strawberry- and licorice-flavored red. This is firm, with quiet intensity and a dense, spice-infused finish. Best from 2015 through 2030."Wine Spectator 91 points

Le Ragnaie Brunello Di Montalcino Fornace 2010 Product #30366 (In Stock)
Le Ragnaie Brunello Di Montalcino Fornace 2010 Le Ragnaie Brunello Di Montalcino Fornace 2010

A producer we've always admired, but never bought becomes irresistible at these very significant savings.  Limited.

"The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Fornace is a beautiful expression with an impressive level of confidence and individuality. The wine's color is a bit darker compared to its peers and its concentration is similarly thicker. But that extra padding does not take away from the inner elegance and finesse displayed here. Aromas embrace red rose petal, licorice, grilled herb and forest floor. The oak rendering is evident but not obvious: Dark smoke, crushed granite and ash give the wine a savory side. Its evolutionary track has no place to go but forward and the wine won't reach its drinking window for another three to five years. "Wine Advocate 96 points

Villa Le Prata Brunello Di Montalcino 2010 1.5l Product #29555 (In Stock)
Villa Le Prata Brunello Di Montalcino 2010 1.5l Villa Le Prata Brunello Di Montalcino 2010 1.5l

Even better in big bottle! As always, there’s something a bit feminine about this Brunello created by a remarkable trio of Italian women, but in 2010 it’s a bit more voluptuous than in the past.  The aromas are compelling and sultry, dark and spicy, while the palate shows a plush sexiness.  At this early point in development, it’s still pretty stern and brooding, but – as Wine Advocate notes – it gets much friendlier and more approachable with air.  You’ll get 15 years of pleasure from this powerful wine with everything from grilled Bistecca alla Fiorentina to roasted lamb or stews.

“Incredible aromatics here with smoked meat, toffee, light prune, dried cherry, and dried flower. Full body, soft and velvety tannins and a long, sexy finish. Wonderful depth and intensity. Big wine from a little producer. Try in 2017.”  James Suckling 94 points

“The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino shows smooth lines and a curvaceous figure. Soft aromas of cherry, Spanish cedar, licorice, dried rosemary and roasted almond rise from the bouquet. I tried this wine during two phases, once shortly after the bottle was opened and a second time 24 hours later. The evolution and softening of the wine was remarkable and is very encouraging in terms of its potential longevity. Yet, you never lose sight of that characteristic Sangiovese tartness and freshness. Drink this elegant Brunello after 2017.”Wine Advocate 92 points

Le Ragnaie Brunello Di Montalcino V.V. 2010 Le Ragnaie Brunello Di Montalcino V.V. 2010

This a uniquely savory expression of Sangiovese, with wild aromas and flavors of herb, smoked meat, and black olive.  The fruit is a bit trapped in the structure right now, but will unfurl nicely with a bit of time. 

"So much dried citrus and smoke on the nose, with sliced meat and plums. Full body and a dense, intense palate with amazing fruit and intensity, but it's held back. Powerful and in reserve but so balanced and harmonious. An old-vine wine with a big future."  James Suckling 100 points

Valdicava Brunello Di Montalcino 2010 Magnum Product #29221 (In Stock)
Valdicava Brunello Di Montalcino 2010 Magnum Valdicava Brunello Di Montalcino 2010 Magnum

"Valdicava” is always one of the most respected names in the Brunello zone of Tuscany’s Montalcino region.  Owner/winemaker Vincenzo Abbruzzese’s meticulous, biodynamic, farming, naturally low yields, minimal intervention winemaking, and viciously strict selection in vineyard and cellar delivers lush, powerful, Brunello that impresses young and unfurls beautifully with a decade-plus in cellar.  There’s always a lush, rich, texture to Vincenzo’s wines and oodles of ripe black cherry fruit, but also lovely accents of crushed flowers, tobacco, licorice, balsamic, and more.  I suspect this will be fairly closed on arrival, so plan to give it a few years to open.


“Absolutely stunning aromas of nectarine, orange peel, sweet black cherry, plums and flowers. Licorice and mushroom.  It's full bodied, with layers of ultra-fine tannins and hints of tangy acidity. Such beautiful length and beauty to this wine. It's powerful and structured yet shows a gorgeous finesse and length. Truly wondrous. So long and refined. The texture is phenomenal. Better in 2016.”  James Suckling 99 points
