A pretty nose of white flowers with ripe fruit sensations, apple and dried fruit, sweet almonds with a touch of vanilla, good and balanced structure, smooth, warm, persistent, harmonic with a pleasurable sweet toasted almond aftertaste.

 

2019 MONSANTO CHIANTI CLASSICO RISERVA

Fresh earth, tar, porcini and fine herbs on the nose with notes of black cherry, lots of Tuscan terroir here.

Finish 45+ Excellent

 

1997 TERRENO CHIANTI CLASSICO RISERVA

Price: $65.00                     Your Price: $57.20

A blend of 90% Sangiovese, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Canaiolo, made by the same consulting enologist that works with Fontodi and Felsina, Franco Bernabei.

Smooth as silk on the tongue with light red berry fruit and silky smooth tannins this is a real crowd pleaser with fully resolve3d tannins and wonderful freshness and balanced acidity. Finish 35 Excellent

 

1988 BADIA A COLTIBUONO CHIANTI CLASSICO RISERVA DOCG, TUSCANY

Price: $120.00                   Sale Price: $95.00                Quantity in Stock: 39

This true classic is the first wine bottled at Badia a Coltibuono in modern times, beginning in the 1950s.  It represents the estate's history and a significant part of the history of Chianti. Like the annata (the non-riserva version), this wine uses a traditional blend of Sangiovese and complementary varieties. But to ensure that only the very best is bottled as Riserva, at each step in its production the utmost care is taken to achieve excellence, beginning with a careful choice of the best grapes in the best vineyards, manual sorting at the winery, long maceration on the skins, and a second selection of only the best lots after the first year of cask aging. The resulting wine is complex, deep, nuanced, and extremely long lived. It transcends the freshness and complexity of the annata, showing how power and elegance can live together and develop for decades.

 

2022 VALDICAVA ROSSO DI MONTALCINO

Price: $52.50                     Your Price: $46.20                Quantity in Stock: 68

The nose has notes of black cherry, balsamic and a slight hint of mushroom. Aromas of eucalyptus tea leaves and violets can be picked up as well. The palate is bone dry with medium acidity. The tannins are soft and well integrated in the wine. At first sip this wine might seem a bit austere but the more it breathes the more refined it becomes with a silky and elegant finish on the pallet. Very approachable and ready to drink.

 

 

2018 VERBENA BRUNELLO DI MONTALCINO

Price: $49.50                     Your Price: $43.56                Quantity in Stock: 39

Its origins begin with the Sangiovese Grosso, a robust and generous grape type whose attributes are expressed best with time - longer periods of aging in oak vats and refinement in bottle. Brunello di Montalcino has a distinctive intense ruby color, tending to garnet with age, and notable scents of rich fruit and spices. On the palate the taste is uniquely characteristic to Montalcino.

 

 

2016 SAN FILIPPO BRUNELLO DI MONTALCINO LE LUCERE

Price: $124.00                   Your Price: $109.12

(94+ Points)This special selection of fruit from San Filippo is characterized by more intensity and concentration compared to the estate's classic Brunello. In this vintage, I also discovered a greater level of Sangiovese purity and direction, thanks to tight berry tones, dusty mineral, spice and balsam herb. To the palate, the 2016 Brunello di Montalcino le Lucére delivers succulent fruit and even a touch of sweetness, all powered by tannins, clearly driven by both the oak and the fruit itself. This wine ages in a combination of barrique, tonneau and botte grande for two years.  -Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 

2007 CASTELLO ROMITORIO RISERVA BRUNELLO DI MONTALCINO

Price: $150.00                   Your Price: $132.00

(93+ Points) ~~The estate’s 2007 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is striking. Dark plums, cherries, mocha, licorice, cloves and sweet French oak notes blossom in the glass. Rich, voluptuous and beautifully balanced, the 2007 impresses for its layered personality, volume and depth. In 2007, the Riserva is all about harmony. Ideally, the wine is best cellared for another year or two, and it should have no problem aging nicely for at least a handful of years after that. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2022.   ~~eRobertParker.com #207, Jun 2013

 

 

2018 AVIGNONESI VINO NOBILE DI MONTEPULCIANO DOCG

Price: $25.00     Your Price: $22.00           Quantity in Stock: 65

The Avignonesi Vino Nobile di Montepulciano is a selection of Sangiovese from all of our vineyards in Montepulciano, creating a multifaceted wine that is a true expression of the terroir.
