Tannins are silky and show beautiful integration, but this wine retains its vibrant energy; it’s a Gaja for the ages! Made with a small component of Barbera and aged in barrique, Gaja’s 1988 Sorì San Lorenzo stands the test of time, marrying tannic power with an ageless ethereal feel and creating a rare drinking experience for Gaja’s many fans.
Avignonesi & Capannelle 50&50 Toscana IGT 2016 It’s no secret that 2016 is a classic vintage across Tuscany, and the 2016 50&50 is a drop-dead beauty. Fistfuls of rich black cherries and bright... cassis wrap in a savory blanket of saddle leather, balsamic herbs, warm loam, smoky wood, and peppery spices. Tannins feel silky, complementing the driving, vibrant acidity, and the finish lingers wonderfully! A collaboration of two winemakers, Avignonesi in Montepulciano and Capanelle in Gaiole, 50&50 is also a perfect blend of Merlot and Sangiovese that’s aged in barrique.$124.50Pre-Arrival

Azienda Agricola La Torre Brunello di Montalcino 2017 Elegant, textured, and terroir driven, La Torre’s organic, high-altitude Brunello is one of the stars of the 2017 vintage. This wine frames its... juicy black cherries and crisp berries with fistfuls of flower petals, ample savory herbs, dusty earth, and touches of new leather, spice, and licorice. Tannins feel chewy, yet even though it has the structure to age a decade or longer, this graceful Brunello allows for earlier approachability. Fewer than 1,100 cases made in 2017.$75.00In Stock
Colle Santa Mustiola
Colle Santa Mustiola Poggio ai Chiari Sangiovese Toscana IGT 2011 Stunningly complex, perfumed, and structured, the 2011 Poggio al Chiari is elegance captured in a bottle. Pure, transparent... Sangiovese fruits are framed with new saddle leather, pressed wild herbs, black licorice, violet petals, baking spices, and fistfuls of crushed minerals. Tannins are firm but silky, while vibrant acidity, compact dry extract, and abundant minerals provide the structure that will make this wine age gorgeously over the long haul. This is top-tier Sangiovese!
Tenuta Sette Ponti
Tenuta Sette Ponti Oreno 2020 Rich, juicy, supple, and explosive, the 2020 Oreno has it all! Fistfuls of crisp red and brambly blue fruits layered with savory notes like olive tapenade, cedar wood,... exotic spices, and grilled herbs. This velvety wine shows a nice tannic backbone and elegant acidity underneath its fleshy fruits. A blend of 50% Merlot, 40% Cab Sauv, and 10% Petit Verdot, this organic Super Tuscan overperforms its relatively modest price point. Cellar for a year or two and enjoy for decades!$74.50In Stock
Ada Nada Barbaresco Rombone Elisa 2015 Remarkably approachable even in its youth, the 2015 Barbaresco Elisa holds its sweet cherries and crisp berries in savory notes of new leather, baking spices,... earth, and underbrush, while telltale rose petals provide lift and balance. This wine feels both fleshy and alive, filling the mouth with chewy tannins, satisfying dry extract, and zesty acidity. Enjoyable now, this balletic Barbaresco will drink nicely over the next decade, likely longer.$65.00In Stock

Tommaso Bussola TB Valpolicella Classico Superiore 2016 Tommaso uses the appassimento method for about half of the grapes in its TB Valpolicella Superiore, where the grapes partially dry before... pressing to concentrate their flavors and texture. This 2016 TB Valpolicella is a knockout — crisp cherries and lush berries wrap around a core of savory herbs, warm baking spices, mocha, and touches of burnt sugar and chalky minerals. Nimble and silky, this wine shows sneaky power as it unfolds on the palate to a lingering, rich finish. Enjoyable now with aerations, it’ll be even better in a few years.
Azienda Agricola La Torre
Azienda Agricola La Torre Rosso di Montalcino 2020 Most Rosso di Montalcino act like “baby brothers” to the estate’s bigger, bolder Brunello, but La Torre’s Rosso owns its own identity.... Bright, vibrant, and sneaky in its complexity, this 2020 Rosso di Montalcino strides the line between juicy and tart, showing fistfuls of red and blue frutti di bosco, pressed herbs, violet petals, underbrush, and a dusting of savory earth and olives. This wine’s bitter almond finish makes it a food-friendly pick for hard cheeses, cured meats, and grilled veggies!$35.00In Stock
Tommaso Bussola Valpolicella Ripasso Superiore Ca' del Laito 2018 Though the grapes for this wine come from a number of vineyards, it gets its name from the Ca’ del Laito vineyard, which sits on a... ridge directly above Quintarelli. Bold, rich, and surprisingly complex, the 2018 Valpolicella Ripasso Superiore Ca' del Laito explodes with juicy cherries and berries, balsamic herbs, underbrush, warm earth, and sprinklings of potpourri and cocoa. A ripasso wine, this Valpolicella “passes” through the lees of the estate’s classic Amarone, adding intensity, polish, and finesse. An absolute bang for the buck!
