NV Bisol Prosecco Brut Valdobbiadene Crede. WE – 90. $16.99.
“Wild flower, ripe orchard fruit and a whiff of aromatic herb are some of the scents you’ll find on this. The foaming linear palate doles out apple, pear, lime and a hint of lemon drop alongside fresh acidity and a soft mousse.” Wine Enthusiast
2013 Antinori Solaia Super Tuscan. RP – 97. $169.99.
Wine Spectator Collectible – “Offers weight and presence, with black currant, plum and black cherry aromas and flavors. The structure is vibrant and harmonious. Herb, earth and spice accents complete the profile, accompanied by a lingering, savory finish.”
2011 Volpaia Nika Passito di Pantelleria. 500 ml. $33.99
Acacia honey, candied fruit are some of the flavours that distinguish this fantastic white dessert wine made from Zibibbo grapes hand-harvested in the island of Pantelleria south of Sicily
2009 Arnaldo Caprai Collepiano Sagrantino di Montefalco. RP – 93. $39.99.
“Polished and spicy, this structured wine features aromas of leather, truffle, blackberry and savory herb. The juicy palate delivers layers of fleshy black plum, black cherry, freshly ground peppercorn, tobacco and thyme alongside big, velvety tannins.” Wine Enthusiast
2012 Buglioni Amarone. $35.99
Winemaker Notes: Dark ruby-red in color with garnet shades. Intense and elegant aromas of ripe fruit, raisins and spices with vanilla, tobacco, cocoa and anise. This is a wine for meditation — a protagonist on its own.
MTW Notes: This Amarone had us swooning! And it’s incredibly well-priced. The winery is moving to a slightly drier version of its Amarone, even more pleasant than in the past.
2008 Dal Forno Valpolicella Superiore. AG – 94. $79.99.
“A dark, super-ripe wine, the 2008 Valpolicella Superiore is fabulous in this vintage. Smoke, tar, incense, licorice and blackberry jam hit the palate in a massive, intense Valpolicella loaded with class and personality.” Antonio Galloni for Vinous
2009 Dal Forno Amarone. JS – 98. $299.99.
“I’m not sure how anyone can resist a wine like the 2009 Amarone della Valpolicella (Dal Forno). It would be impossible to exaggerate the enormity of this wine. But you can not doubt the sheer quality of winemaking that goes behind this monumental wine.” James Suckling
2012 Cogno Barolo Ravera. WE – 94. $59.99
“Lovely scents of rose petal, iris and perfumed berry slowly take shape in this striking wine. The full-bodied palate delivers ripe red cherry, licorice, white pepper, cinnamon and sage alongside firm, fine-grained tannins and fresh acidity. A mineral note wraps around the finish.” Wine Enthusiast
2010 Cogno Barolo Cascina Nuova. WE – 93. $39.49
“This wine expresses Barolo’s more accessible side. It opens with an alluring potpourri of scents including rose, violet, red berry, underbrush, leather and eucalyptus. The bright palate doles out crushed black cherry accented with cinnamon and herbs alongside lively acidity.” Wine Spectator
