2018 Castellare di Castellina, Sodi San Niccolo, IGT 1x150cl

WS96
"Lovely abundance and expression on the nose, you get that perfect clarity of fruit - black fruits and blackcurrant laced with violets. Strong, round and rich - this is densely concentrated with... power and punch. Gorgeous texture - dry with firm firm tannins and a direct fruit profile - tension and linearity yet there's plushness and ripeness here too. It's round yet direct but also sweet and succulent. I love that immediately juicy perfumed hit you get on the tongue, such brightness and energy here, the sweet red cherry edge is so delicious. Supremely charming but also fun, such playfulness going on with the flavours and the textures." 96 pts., Georgina Hindle, www.decanter.com

2019 Gaja, Barbaresco 6x75cl

"2019 Barbaresco has glaring vivid colors thanks to a good presence of anthocyanins. It immediately brings out notes of rose and wild strawberries followed by lighter notes of marzipan, wild fennel... and a hint of juniper. Tasting saline, the wine has good length and a perception of crisp red fruits balanced by bright acidity. Together with the freshness and a tense structure, they define the main characteristics of the 2019 vintage." (Winemaker's tasting note)

2020 Petrolo, Galatrona, IGT 6x75cl

RP96
"The Petrolo 2020 Galatrona is a pure expression of organic Merlot and the estate's headline wine. It was first created in 1994 when Luca Sanjust's second child, Lucia, was born. Despite the summer... heat that became a challenge for winemakers in many corners of Tuscany, Galatrona shows terrific results in 2020. The vineyard is located in a cool and thickly forested position almost exactly between Florence, Arezzo and Siena. The vintage has a classic quality with a subtle bouquet that grows in intensity as the wine opens in the glass. Aromas of cherry, toasted almond and dried mint fuel a long and very elegant finish. The oak tannins are soft and sweet, and the wine boasts long-lasting flavors." 96 pts, Monica Larner, Wine Advocate, Issue #261 (June 2022)

2021 Bruno Giacosa, Roero, Arneis 6x75cl

A delightful simplicity here that also preserves a great inner freshness and complexity. Tropical fruit perfumes with flavours of papaya, citrus and Williams pear. There's also an inner richness that... has good fruit weight and concentration. Expect mineral tones to rise to more prominence over the next year or so. Hard to imagine a white varietal more perfectly suited for the table - we should all be drinking more Arneis!

2019 Bruno Giacosa, Barbaresco, Asili 6x75cl

"Most approachable, even at this early stage. Yet the Asili Barbaresco shows mightily impressive depth of flavour for a cuvée that is all about delicacy and elegance. No doubt this is courtesy of... the naturally limited yields of the 2019 growing season, and the fleshy texture brings a level of opulence that befits this cuvée beautifully. Pretty gorgeous stuff… " Mr Wheeler Wine Tasting Note

2015 Rizzi, Barbaresco 12x75cl

JR17
"The 2015 Barbaresco Rizzi is not overripe, but rich and dark instead. Glossy, natural rubber gives it linearity and firm contours. This wine offers pretty Nebbiolo-driven aromas of wild berry, pressed rose, tar and licorice. This is an elegant and contained expression." 92 pts., Monica Larne, robertparker,com

2016 Rizzi, Barbaresco, Pajore 6x75cl

RP92
"The 2016 Barbaresco Pajorè is a dense and thickly structured wine that opens to dried cherries and blackberries, followed by spice, leather and tar. This wine shows volume and fullness in the mouth, with a soft and generous approach. Following its time in oak, the wine sits in concrete tanks for eight months before going into the bottle."

2020 Bibi Graetz, Colore, IGT 3x75cl

RP96
“The Bibi Graetz 2020 Colore is a pure expression of Sangiovese all sourced from old vines that are carefully selected in various parts of Tuscany. Much of the fruit comes from a high elevation and... cool site in Lamole, or from 70-year-old vines in Bagno a Ripoli or Vincigliata near Fiesole. A small percentage of old vines in Olmo is also used. Bibi has a preference for old vines, and you can taste the lovely depth and complexity that comes through in the Colore. Compared to his other wine Testamatta, this wine has seen fewer stylistic changes over the years, and the goal has always been elegance and finesse. Colore boasts a pretty luminous quality with dark fruit aromas and wild berry. There are hints of licorice and mint as well. Mineral flavors and bright acidity are what set Colore apart.” Drink 2023-2043. 96 pts., Monica Larner, robertparker.com (30/06/2022)

2020 Bibi Graetz, Testamatta, IGT 6x75cl

RP95
“Bibi Graetz has long been tinkering with his formula for this wine, and this vintage represents a new chapter. The 2020 Testamatta is a blend of Sangiovese from old and new vines, with a priority... on cooler growing conditions (and even a few northern exposures). In the wake of climate change, and in the pursuit of elegance, Bibi is changing his approach. He also has a new vineyard property near Fiesole, and the introduction of these grapes (from a breezy, high-elevation site) are what gives Testamatta its beautiful clarity, sharpness and lifted bouquet. The new Fiesole fruit makes up about 30% to 35% of this wine. The results are vibrant, transparent and fresh both in terms of acidity and aromatic intensity. This is a wine in transformation and a wine to watch.” Drink 2023-2043. 95 pts., Monica Larner, robertparker.com (30/06/2022)

2020 Guidalberto, Tenuta San Guido, Toscana 6x75cl

JR16.5
"With much sunshine on Bolgheri we can expect much warming opulence on the palate and a richness finely countered by that Graves-like freshness and minerality San Guido’s terroir imbues. Classic,... dark cherry fruit, violet florals, dense, vibrant purity, full-bodied and beautifully balanced, this corresponding ripeness and vigour in the 2020 will provide sublime drinking pleasure over the next several years."

2019 Gerla, Rosso di Montalcino 12x75cl

VM91
"The 2019 Rosso di Montalcino makes itself known with a captivating display of dusty rose, fresh strawberries and hints of confectionary spice. This silky and feminine effort impresses further with a... savoury mix of red and hints of blue fruit, as salty mineral tones create a more tactile feel toward the close. A note of sour cherry pits lingers under an air of purple-tinged flowers as it tapers off lightly structured. The 2019 would benefit from a short stay in the cellar, and it should emerge as an incredibly pretty Rosso." 91 pts., Eric Guido, vinous.com

2016 Buon Tempo, Brunello di Montalcino 6x75cl

"Open-knit and friendly, this cheerful Brunello leads with cherry and blackberry. Charmingly accented by flint and pepper, the palate offers lots of crunchy, fresh acidity. Smooth overall, with just... a touch of astringency showing up on the finish, it will make for delightful drinking over the next five to seven years." 90 pts., Michaela Morris, decanter.com

2017 Poderi Aldo Conterno, Langhe, Nebbiolo Favot 6x75cl

RP88
"The Poderi Aldo Conterno 2017 Langhe Nebbiolo Il Favot delivers dark fruit intensity with cherry, blackberry and plum. This entry-level wine throws a lot of fruit out there, all delivered in a... rather random and haphazard manner. This is a fun and informal Nebbiolo to pair with grilled meats or simple pasta dishes." 88 pts., Monica Larner, robertparker.com

2017 Poderi Aldo Conterno, Barolo, Colonello 6x75cl

RP94
"The Poderi Aldo Conterno 2017 Barolo Bussia Colonnello shows good focus, structure and a sharper character that is often the distinguishing factor in this wine. The bouquet is redolent of dark fruit... and plum, but it also shows a solid framing of iron ore and dark stony mineral. These give the wine greater lift and contoured edges. This is not the first time that Colonnello is my favorite wine in this lineup, and I suspect it won't be the last." 94+ pts., Monica Larner, robertparker.com
