Emidio Pepe
1990 Emidio Pepe Montepulciano d'Abruzzo

Castell'in Villa
1995 Castell'in Villa Chianti Classico Riserva
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: 95 Points The 1995 Chianti Classico Riserva is another marvelously complete wine. Waves of fruit saturate the palate in this intense, full-bodied Riserva. The 1995 is another wine endowed with massive fruit and equally...

Felsina
1995 Fattoria Felsina Chianti Classico Riserva Cru Rancia
Like its much-vaunted neighbor in Montalcino, immaculately cellared Chianti can age virtually indefinitely.  It was a twenty year old 1964 Badia a Coltibuono Chianti Classico Riserva, after all, that changed my life, once-upon-a-time, so I know how...

Felsina
1995 Felsina Chianti Classico Riserva
Wine Enthusiast: 92 Points Opaque with a dark brooding nose. Great, if somewhat hidden, depth of fruit and excellent balance: the fruit-acid-tannin triangle is textbook perfect. Very tight now, this is a keeper for sure. Try to avoid touching...

Avignonesi
1999 Avignonesi Vin Santo di Montepulciano 375ml (half bottle)
Vinous: 96 PointsA bevy of white flowers, toffee, Armagnac, mint, pine and mocha aromas flow from the Avignonesi’s 1999 Vin Santo, a wine I would say is the richest Vin Santo made, were it not for the estate’s Occhio di Pernice! Smooth, silky...

Isole e Olena
2005 Isole e Olena Cepparello IGT Toscana
Cepparello was a Super Tuscan before being a Super Tuscan was cool. In fact, many people credit Isole e Olena proprietor Paolo De Marchi with producing, in Cepparello, the very first wine of the genre back in 1980.  His dissatisfaction with the...

Badia a Coltibuono
2006 Badia a Coltibuono Chianti Classico Riserva
Ninety percent Sangiovese and 10 percent Canaiolo, the wine has a beautiful depth of colour, just hinting at development with hints of garnet in the rim. Bramble fruit, leather, tobacco and savoury spice merge on the nose and palate. The mid-palate is...

Valdicava
2006 Valdicava Brunello di Montalcino Madonna del Piano Riserva
James Suckling: 100 Points  I tasted this about a year ago at the winery and I was blown away. This time I tasted it in a blind tasting in Tuscany and it stood above the rest. Amazing aromas of blueberries and flowers, with black truffles and...
