Anzivino Gattinara 2010 Product #32919 (In Stock)
Anzivino Gattinara 2010 Anzivino Gattinara 2010

More ripeness and depth than you'd expect from this cooler slice of Piemonte, but still nicely elegant and pure.  Ready now although you can hold for another 10+ years if that's your thing.

"Enticing scents of perfumed berry, violet, dried herb and cake spice take center stage along with a balsamic note. The palate is firmly structured but elegant, offering tart red cherry, crushed raspberry, cinnamon and licorice. It's well balanced and young with taut polished tannins and fresh acidity. Drink 2018–2030."Wine Enthusiast 93 points

Valdinera Chiaro Di Luna Rosato 2016 Product #32282 (In Stock)
Valdinera Chiaro Di Luna Rosato 2016 Valdinera Chiaro Di Luna Rosato 2016

You probably didn't start out looking for a 100% Nebbiolo rosé from vineyards near Italy's Barolo region - but just taste the supple, succulent, and utterly surprising Chiaro di Luna and you'll come back looking for more! There's a lot of body here - almost a red wine drinker's rose - but also fantastic freshness and vivacity to the cherry, red berry, and rose petal aromas and flavors.  The fruit is sweet and ripe and the finish dry, mouthwatering, and long.  Very highly recommended as a special pink treat!

Boniperti Nebbiolo Carlin Colline Novaresi 2015 Boniperti Nebbiolo Carlin Colline Novaresi 2015

Simply insanely delicious Nebbiolo from the "Alto Piemonte" region of Colline Novaresi.  Bold aromas and flavors of strawberry preserves, rose petal, and forest floor with subtle hints of clove and anise.  The texture is fantastic, rich and mouth-coating with a nicely refined bite of silky smooth tannins.  All tank and all refinement, here, with a joyful burst of fruit on the finish. Drink it.

Vajra Barolo Albe 2013 Product #32719 (In Stock)
Vajra Barolo Albe 2013 Vajra Barolo Albe 2013

Always one of the greatest values in Barolo, the 2013 mirrors the vintage in blending the rich power of 2010 with the elegance and perfume of 2008.  As , Giuseppe Vajra told us a few years ago during a visit to the shop, his father, Aldo Vajra, is committed to making the Barolo Albe an “important wine you can reach for on a Tuesday night.”  You can get a peek at the marvels Albe has to offer with a long decant now, but better to wait until this time next year and then enjoy as long as you’d care to wait!

"Vajra's 2013 Barolo Albe is beautifully perfumed, sensual and expressive in this vintage, with a bit less overt fruit and more aromatic/structural intensity than is often the case. The style of the Albe has always favored a more succulent expression of Nebbiolo that is quite different from the single-vineyard wines, but the 2013 suggests Vajra may be moving the Albe closer in line stylistically to their other Barolos, which I think is a positive. In any event, there is an element of restraint in the 2013 that is hugely appealing. The Albe is a blend of fruit from Fossati, Coste di Vergne and La Volta aged in 75 hectoliter casks. The Albe may be the single best value in Barolo today. As for the 2013, don't miss it!"  Vinous (Galloni) 92 points

Produttori Del Barbaresco Barbaresco 2013 Product #32652 (In Stock)
Produttori Del Barbaresco Barbaresco 2013 Produttori Del Barbaresco Barbaresco 2013

Delicious now with robust flavors and built to improve.   A stellar value.

"The 2013 is a tasty, easygoing Barbaresco to drink over the next decade or more. There is good depth in the glass, with pretty notes of tobacco, licorice, herb and worn-in leather that add nuance. Sweet red cherry, pomegranate and a closing burst of acidity meld into the finish. The tannins are present, but they are also pretty much buried by the creaminess of the fruit. A lovely impeccably balanced, understated wine that offers considerable regional and varietal expression. In other words: textbook. The Produttori's Barbaresco has a track record of aging well, but the 2013 is also surprisingly accessible."  Vinous (Galloni) 90 points

"A balanced mix of cherry, tar and licorice flavors, this red is medium-bodied and well-integrated. Shows a hint of white pepper on the spicy finish. Best from 2018 through 2029."Wine Spectator 90 points

Rovellotti Ghemme Chioso Dei Pomi 2009 Product #32031 (In Stock)
Rovellotti Ghemme Chioso Dei Pomi 2009 Rovellotti Ghemme Chioso Dei Pomi 2009

Nebbiolo does more than make big, rich, Barolo.  Grow it up in the hills, blend it with 15% tangy Vespolina and then age it in barrel for 18 months and you get something that's definitely Nebbiolo, but NOT Barolo.  At 8 years old, it's delicious and deep and loaded with dark cherry and raspberry fruit accented by notes of sweet spice, cedar, tar and smoke.  Luxuriously textured with spicey oak, tangy fruit, and chewy tannins bringing up the finish.

Ar.Pe.Pe. Valtellina Grumello Rocca De Piro Rsv 2011 Product #32206 (In Stock)
Ar.Pe.Pe. Valtellina Grumello Rocca De Piro Rsv 2011 Ar.Pe.Pe. Valtellina Grumello Rocca De Piro Rsv 2011

The prefect introduction to the high-altitude Nebbiolo of Valtellina. Fine fruit and delicious now with air.

"Initially shy, this opens up with a few swirls of the glass to reveal underbrush, truffle, pressed rose and a balsamic note. The tense palate is lean and linear, offering tart red cherry, strawberry, clove and mineral while bright acidity and firm noble tannins provide balance."Wine Enthusiast 91 points

Brovia Barolo Garblet Sue 2009 Product #27807 (In Stock)
Brovia Barolo Garblet Sue 2009 Brovia Barolo Garblet Sue 2009

Probably the least "open" of the 2009 Brovias, but promising great things 5-7 years from now!

"Iron, tar, scorched earth, smoke and game waft from the glass as the 2009 Barolo Garblèt Sue' opens up. The ferrous notes typical of this site come through loud and clear in the 2009. At the same time, the 2009 is surprisingly soft. At times delicate and even ethereal, the 2009 appears to be heavily marked by the vintage."  Antonio Galloni 90 points

"Wild, ripe aromas of red berries, plum, truffle and game. Rich and broad but currently less shapely and delineated than the Villero, not to mention less showy. Shows a larger structure reflecting its Castiglione origin, but this is also harder to taste today. The big tannins are less fine than those of the Villero. Elena Brovia points out that this wine is made in exactly the same way as the Villero and Garblet Sue, so the differences are entirely a function of terroir."International Wine Cellar 91+? points

Vajra Barolo Bricco Delle Viole 2013 Product #32720 (In Stock)
Vajra Barolo Bricco Delle Viole 2013 Vajra Barolo Bricco Delle Viole 2013

Since we first encountered it in the 2006 vintage, we've come to love Vajra's flagship Bricco della Viole Barolo.  The vineyard lies high up the side of the highest hill in the commune of Barolo.  The altitude cools the vines a bit, but the perch above the fog line gives the grapes loads of warming sunshine every day.  Only older vines from the hill go into the Cru bottling after a 40 day fermentation/maceration and 42 months aging in 25-50 hectoliter Slavoniann oak barrels.  The site and hands-off winemakinng give this unusual purity and elegance to go with the powerhouse structure and intense flavors.  The wine’s beauty is already apparent after 3 hours in decanter, but it will sing most sweetly from 2021.

"The 2013 Barolo Bricco delle Viole is a real head-turner. Sweet, perfumed, vivid and exceptionally beautiful, the 2013 is simply stunning. A wine of exceptional finesse and sensuality, the 2013 hits all the right notes. Today, the 2013 reminds me of the 2008, but with more depth, density and creaminess - especially through the middle - and slightly redder fruit tones."  Vinous (Galloni) 97 points

Damilano Barolo Brunate 2006 Product #25941 (In Stock)
Damilano Barolo Brunate 2006 Damilano Barolo Brunate 2006

"The 2006 Barolo Brunate shows the masculine personality of this site in its dark fruit, minerals, menthol and spices. Today the wine is very much closed in on itself, but the fruit and perfume should emerge as the tannins soften. This is a commendable effort that falls short of being truly inspiring, a shame considering how precious Brunate is. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2026."Wine Advocate 92 points

"A wiry, angular red, awkward today, yet revealing a core of cherry, strawberry, rubber and tobacco flavors. This is vibrant, settling down on the lingering finish and echoing spice and leather accents. Best from 2014 through 2032."Wine Spectator 92 points

Ar.Pe.Pe. Valtellina Grumello Buon Consiglio 2005 Product #32281 (In Stock)
Ar.Pe.Pe. Valtellina Grumello Buon Consiglio 2005 Ar.Pe.Pe. Valtellina Grumello Buon Consiglio 2005

"The 2005 Valtellina Superiore Grumello Riserva Buon Consiglio is another wonderfully complete wine. A host of blood orange, white pepper, cranberry, mulling spices and dried flowers lift from the glass. This is one of the most intensely aromatic, exotic wines in the range. Readers should be prepared for a deceptively mid-weight wine that has a lot going on. The 2005 spent 30 days in cask followed by 4 years in cask and cement. The long maceration and aging time results in a wine with more tertiary-leaning aromas and flavors."  Vinous 94 points

Brovia Barolo Rocche Dei Brovia 2009 Product #27808 (In Stock)
Brovia Barolo Rocche Dei Brovia 2009 Brovia Barolo Rocche Dei Brovia 2009

The most graceful, elegant, of the Cru wines from Brovia in 2009, but with plenty of depth, too.

"The 2009 Barolo Rocche dei Brovia wraps around the palate with layers of ripe, succulent fruit. Rich, open and expressive, the 2009 is flashy and seductive, in other words, very typical of the year. This is a fairly open, succulent vintage for the Rocche. I imagine it will drink well early and probably be likely to mature quickly as well. Dried rose petals, savory herbs and fennel add complexity on a finish distinguished by its grace."  Antonio Galloni 91 points

"High-pitched aromas of raspberry, rose petal and mint. Juicy, youthfully tight and intense; not a rich style but elegant and perfumed, with good supporting minerality. No sign of overripeness here, unlike with many other 2009 Barolos from sandy soil. Finishes with building but ripe tannins and enticing lingering aromatic character. Very refined."International Wine Cellar 92 points

Ar.Pe.Pe. Valtellina Superiore Ultimi Raggi 2006 Product #32205 (In Stock)
Ar.Pe.Pe. Valtellina Superiore Ultimi Raggi 2006 Ar.Pe.Pe. Valtellina Superiore Ultimi Raggi 2006

"The 2006 Valtellina Superiore Sassella Ultimi Raggi is superb. Dark, rich and translucent, the 2006 captures the essence of Nebbiolo here, in Sassella. Sweet dark cherries, menthol, licorice, game and cloves are all woven together in a fabric of pure class. Layered, balsamic and nuanced, the 2006 possesses remarkable power while retaining considerable finesse. All the elements are simply in the right place. Drink this suave, silky Sassella over the next decade-plus. This fruit was harvested very late, on November 15. The 2006 spent 12 days on the skins followed by three years in cask and cement."  Vinous (Galloni) 94 points
