Canalicchio di Sopra Brunello di Montalcino 2018Canalicchio di Sopra shows what great terroir, hard work, and a lot of skill can do in a “winemaker’s vintage” like 2018... — the estate’s Brunello is a knockout! Silky, juicy red and blue fruits burst from the glass with complementary notes of forest floor, violet petals, cedar wood, peppery spices, and herbs. This is a pure, refined, and nuanced Brunello with grainy tannins and spectacular balance — give it a couple of years in the cellar before enjoying for a decade.
Avignonesi Capannelle 50&50 Toscana IGT 2016 750ml
Avignonesi & Capannelle 50&50 Toscana IGT 2016 Critics, industry people, and wine-lovers agree that 2016 gave Tuscan wine fans a glorious vintage, and the 2016 50&50 is drop-dead gorgeous. 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. Ultra-silky tannins complement the wine’s driving, vibrant acidity; terrific complexity loads the mid-palate; and the finish lingers wonderfully! Half Sangiovese and Half Merlot that’s aged in barrique, 50&50 is a collaboration between two winemakers, Avignonesi in Montepulciano and Capanelle in Gaiole — this is one of the last great cult Super Tuscans!$124.50Pre-ArrivalETA: April

One of Bea’s wines that’s lower in alcohol, this luscious red clocks in at less than 13%, a feat for Sagrantino! Superb balance and lots of piquant minerality on the finish. You’ll want to enjoy this wine again and again!$84.95In Stock

Rich, opulent, and silky-smooth, Pian delle Vigne’s 2017 Brunello defies its challenging vintage with its intense, kaleidoscopic palate and its weighty yet balanced feel.

Tommaso Bussola TB Valpolicella Classico Superiore 2016 750ml
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.$49.99In Stock
Bruna Grimaldi Barolo Camilla 2018 750ml
Bruna Grimaldi Barolo Camilla 2018A beautiful, approachable cuvee Barolo, the 2018 Camilla exudes style, drink-me-now juiciness, and surprising precision. Layers of crisp... black cherries and berries dance on a bed of pressed rose petals, warm baking spices, crushed mint, fresh loam, and a generous spritz of blood orange. Chewy tannins feel integrated, giving the wine a pleasant mouthfeel, while elegant acidity keeps it nimble and lively. Delicious upon release but aging nicely over the next decade.
Tommaso Bussola Valpolicella Ripasso Superiore Ca’ del Laito 2018 750ml
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!$29.95In Stock
