2015 Avignonesi - Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Poggetto di Sopra

750ml | SKU 83134 | 37 Available
94 WA
From a single vineyard, the 2015 Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Poggetto di Sopra is a pure expression of Sangiovese. Only 3,000 bottles were made. The fruit is organic, and the wine ferments on ambient yeasts (whole cluster) with up to 25 days of skin contact. It ages in oak for two years. This is an extraordinarily pure expression of the grape from a warm vintage in which its natural fruit characteristics of cherry and wild raspberry come forth with intensity and power. It is a mid-weight expression that carefully balances the power of the vintage against the extremely elegant and graceful house style achieved at Avignonesi. Monica Larner - Wine Advocate (94)

2015 Banfi - Brunello di Montalcino Poggio alle Mura

750ml | SKU 89154 | 13 Available
95 WA
The Castello Banfi 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Poggio alle Mura offers a distinct identity that is recognized by the natural thickness and density of the wine. Warm vintage conditions in 2015 that favor more concentrated fruit make this even more apparent. However, the palate is relatively mild mannered and tight. Black fruit, plum and blackberry roll off the tongue. Those fruity tones are followed by dark spice, balsam herb and a touch of savory barbecue spice. Unlike the classic Brunello from Castello Banfi, the Poggio alle Mura sees more contact with French barrique. Only 40% of the total is aged in botte, and 60% goes into smaller French barrels. The wine was bottled in April 2019 and will be released one year later in April 2020. Monica Larner - Wine Advocate (95)

2015 Castello Romitorio - Brunello di Montalcino Riserva

750ml | SKU 89202 | 15 Available
96 VM
The 2015 Castello Romitorio Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is youthfully restrained yet also surprisingly feminine, leading off with a dusting of cedar and white smoke, as nuances of strawberry, rose and violet perfumes come forward. It's silky and undeniably elegant, seeming to coat the palate in a polished display of red and black berries, liquid florals and minerals which slowly saturate adding a tactile feel. A complex web of tannins wrap the senses up tightly, leaving sweet inner herbal tones and savory spices to linger. This is like a whisper rather than a shout, yet it has so much to say. In forty years, only nine vintages of Riserva have ever been made at Romitorio, and the 2015 is sure to rank amongst the best of them. Eric Guido - Vinous Media (96)

2015 Castello Tricerchi - Brunello di Montalcino

750ml | SKU 84796 | 33 Available
93 WA
Lots of exuberant ripe berries and a hint of blackberry leaf and hay. Fruit-forward and delicious with expansive tannins and lots of ripeness. Full-bodied and round, but there's some tannin bite on the finish. Drink in 2022. James Suckling - James Suckling (93)

2015 Ciacci - Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Vigne Pianrosso

750ml | SKU 86771 | 23 Available
97 WA
The 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Vigna di Pianrosso Santa Caterina d'Oro is a fine and delicate wine that cleverly delivers the intensity of the vintage but without the heaviness or the ripeness. This wine holds back, just enough, to affirm its poised balance in terms of fruit richness, texture and tannic structure. It shows symmetry throughout. Dark cherry fruit, cassis, plum, lavender and campfire ash set the tone. The mouthfeel is thickly woven and generous, more so than the more linear and focused 2016 Brunello Pianrosso. Monica Larner - Wine Advocate (97)

2015 Frescobaldi-Mondavi - Luce

750ml | SKU 86337 | Available
92 VM
Pliant and beautifully resonant on the palate, the 2015 Luce is very nicely done. Dark red cherry, chocolate, new leather, espresso, new oak and spice notes abound. There is plenty of richness and textural depth to the 2015, but I also see a more refined use of oak and a greater emphasis on freshness than in the past, both clearly positives. Antonio Galloni - Vinous Media (92)

2015 Pagliarese - Chianti Classico Riserva

750ml | SKU 84857 | 51 Available
90 WA
Boasting a mid-weight style, the 2015 Chianti Classico Riserva exhibits a firm and tightly knit texture that is carefully interwoven with dark fruit, spice, leather and gravel. I really love the fact you can taste those crushed rocks in this new generation of wines from one of my favorite Italian appellations, Chianti Classico. Those aromas offer a level of elegance that is specific to this beautiful territory. This wine is a blend of 90% Sangiovese with 5% Canaiolo and 5% Mammolo aged in large oak casks. Some 10,000 bottles were made. Monica Larner - Wine Advocate (90)

2015 Verrazzano - Chianti Classico Riserva Gran Selezione Sassello

750ml | SKU 82789 | 20 Available
93 VM
Iron, smoke, white pepper, tobacco and earthy undertones announce a wine of tremendous complexity in the 2015 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Sassello. Powerful and bold, with tremendous structure, the 2015 has the requisite depth to develop well for many years to come. Antonio Galloni - Vinous Media (93)
