Colombaiolo Brunello di Montalcino Riserva 2017

Brunello di Montalcino


From a single plot among the vineyards of Podere Casisano, in one of the highest and best-quality positions in the hills to the south-east of Montalcino, Colombaiolo combines structure, elegance and harmony.

James Suckling -January 09, 2024 "This is a rich and plummy Brunello with cedar and sandalwood, sweet spices, dried cherries and prunes on the nose. Full-bodied with dense, ripe tannins. Lingering sweet, dried fruit. From…

Jeb Dunnuck -January 09, 2024 "The 2017 Brunello Di Montalcino Riserva offers more substance, with stewed black cherry, medicinal herbs, and dried leather. It is medium to full-bodied on the palate, with more black cherry,…

Wine Enthusiast -January 09, 2024 "After initial savory notes, the nose is like a slice of cake, with sweeter vanilla, cardamom, cherry and cranberry aromas. The tangy fruitiness continues onto a lithe, dynamic palate, while…

Decanter -January 09, 2024 "With a brick-edged hue and oxidative nuances, Colombaiolo initially presents as fully mature yet youthful wood-driven aromas of cedar and spice waft atop. There is freshness on the mid-palate as…

Casisano

Brunello di Montalcino 2019

Brunello di Montalcino DOCG


This elegant, traditional style Brunello is produced in the southern hills of Montalcino, between the towns of Sant'Angelo in Colle and Castelnuovo dell'Abate.

Vinous -January 11, 2024 "The 2019 Brunello di Montalcino wafts up with a pretty blend of dried strawberries and cedary spice offset by lifting menthol and violet pastille aromas. This is juicy in character…

James Suckling -January 09, 2024 "Black cherries and blueberries with walnut and lavender undertones. Medium body with very fine tannins that run the length of the wine and caress every inch of your palate. Fresh…

E. Guigal

Saint-Joseph Blanc 2020


While the reds of Saint-Joseph are today one of the most exciting stories in the Rhone Valley, the minuscule production of whites, in the hands of the best producers, are absolutely thrilling and in a perhaps less extreme way than the other great whites of the region, namely in Hermitage and Condrieu. Get them while they're still affordable.

Wine Spectator -November 27, 2023 "Opens up to reveal an appealing mix of floral, stone fruit and fresh apricot flavors. Dense and juicy on the palate, with oak whispers to round off the edges. Builds…

Poggio al Tufo

Rompicollo 2020

Toscana IGT


This Tuscan "Super Value" is a blend of 60% Sangiovese and 40% Cabernet Sauvignon and comes from a single-vineyard site in the Alta Maremma called Rompicollo. The vineyard benefits from southern exposure, ample sunlight, and a soil rich in tufo, a particular type of volcanic rock.

Wine Enthusiast -February 27, 2024 "The powerfully umami nose draws balance from a strawberry undertone and a dash of salt and pepper. That combination of earthiness, salt and strawberries continues on the palate, with an…

Tenuta Luce

Lucente 2021

Toscana IGT


Lucente is the second wine of Luce, a wine with contemporary style, immediate and great pleasure, and like its elder sibling, an authentic interpretation of Montalcino and the Luce estate.

James Suckling -December 19, 2023 "Rich cherries, cassis, fresh olives and dark spices. Svelte, fine tannins on the medium- to full-bodied palate, showing lots of juicy berries and a linear, extensive finish. Excellent length, focus…

Wine Advocate -August 11, 2023 "This is another robust wine from Tenuta Luce with immediate notes of maple syrup and brown sugar. Made with a blend of 75% Merlot and 25% Sangiovese, the 2021 Lucente…

Quinta do Noval

Douro Reserva 2020

Douro Valley, Portugal


Very powerful and structured, it is outstanding for its finesse, a delicate character typical of the Quinta do Noval style. It is derived from a strict selection of the best batches of the Quinta's various indigenous grape varieties. This wine is delicious when young and ages well in the cellar.

Wine Spectator -November 03, 2023 "Showing an up-front sense of restraint, this elegant red also has a generous core of grilled black plum, warm fig, Earl Grey tea leaf and sandalwood aromas and flavors that…
