Cantina del Taburno

Cantina del Taburno Aglianico del Taburno Fidelis 2017 750ml

Aglianico del Tabruno Fidelis 2017 The 2017 Aglianico Fidelis took me by surprise. I usually only like dry, tannic Aglianicos from Mastroberardino, for example, but I had this bottle before my... tasting on Wed. We opened it the night before with some pizza and the two of us drank the whole bottle without even realizing it. The secret of this wine? There a 10% blend of Sangiovese and Merlot that helps keep the racy and super structured Aglianico grape in check; I was floored. This simple wine drank seamlessly, was balanced, was fruit forward enough to caress the palate but not overly so. The supple, opulent quality is met with elevated acidity thanks to the vineyard altitudes ranging from 650ft to 2000ft. At $18 per bottle you get all this?? Yes please.

Le Mortelle

Marchesi Antinori Le Mortelle Botrosecco 2017 750ml

Marchesi Antinori Le Mortelle Botrosecco Maremma Toscana IGT 2017 The 2017 Botrosecco is a blend of Cab Sauv and Cab Franc and a mesmerizing wine at that; I like to think of it of a baby Sassicaia... that shares this same blend. Intense and powerful on the nose, notes of blueberries, plums and dark blue fruits with an elevated aroma of tart red fruits, raspberries and strawberries, this wine delivers a eucalyptus aroma coupled with aromatic spices. A wonderful potpourri of intensity and playful fruits for all to enjoy!

Agricola Punica

Agricola Punica Barrua IGT 2017 750ml

Agricola Punica Agricola Punica Barrua IGT 2017 The 2017 Barrua is another slam dunk for Punica in the new release line up and likely my favorite. This was the original brainchild of Giacomo Tachis... from the start and the ultimate Super Sardinian! With a blend comprised mainly of Carignano and small percentages of Cab Sauv and Merlot, this wine is a wonderful representation of Sardegna with some minor refinements. This Barrua is a velvety, balanced beauty boasting notes of dark red fruits, wonderfully layered nuances of licorice, wet rock, spices and a touch of sauvage. This Barrua’s deep, opulent style with that Sardinian flare was a nice reminder of why I loved Punica so much and I think you will too!

Le Mortelle

Marchesi Antinori Le Mortelle Poggio alle Nane Maremma Toscana 2017 750ml

>producer_profile> Marchesi Antinori Le Mortelle Located on the Maremma Coast near the family's Guado al Tasso estate in Bolgheri, Le Mortelle was once part of a larger estate called La Badiola,... created in the nineteenth century when the Duchy drained the marshy areas around Grosseto. The Antinori family purchased Le Mortelle in 1999, and the estate’s name, which comes from the region’s plentiful wild myrrh, signals the family’s green commitment. Le Mortelle isn’t merely certified organic — it also sports a state-of-the-art cellar facility constructed with natural materials and erected under the earth. Built into the side of a hill, Le Mortelle’s cantina is barely visible, but its three-story structure allows for gravity to move the wine from pressing to fermentation to aging barrels, which reduces energy and treats the wine with tender loving care. Today is your chance to have two vintages side by side of the incredible Poggio alle Nane, a wine I believe will be the next Tignanello for the 26-generation family owned company. The blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc is a nod to Guado al Tasso and Sassicaia as well as an immediate threat to Tignanello’s reign of being the most affordable and delicious blue chip wine in Tuscany.

Sinfully enjoyable now and for the next scrumptious decade.
