"The 2008 Fontalloro is characteristically beautiful, open and expressive at this stage. Layers of sweet red fruit, flowers and spices blossom effortlessly from the 2008 Fontalloro. The intensely saline finish that is present in the Rancia is found in Fontalloro as well. I am usually not the biggest fan of Fontalloro, but there is no denying the superb pedigree and sheer class of the 2008. This is a wonderfully, sophisticated, polished wine from Felsina."

2012 Il Poggione Rosso di Montalcino

"The 2012 Rosso di Montalcino could almost be mistaken for a Riserva given the amazing depth and impenetrable darkness it shows in the glass. The wine is made from the estate’s youngest and lowest vines that have definitely taken on the brunt of the 2009 summer heat. The mouthfeel is supple and rich and somewhat one-dimensional. At this young stage, the bouquet shows awkward whiffs of toasted coconut and popcorn that prevented me from scoring it higher."

2010 Isole e Olena Cepparello

"The extraordinary 2010 Cepparello (100% Sangiovese aged up to 18 months in oak, one-third new) presents fine nuances of red berry, cherry, spice, tar, licorice, wet earth and forest leaf. The bouquet is very elegant but this wine delivers power too with tight structure that immediately wraps around the palate. Somewhere in the crossroads between tradition and modernity, Cepparello is a stunning wine."

This wine was named #54 on Wine Enthusiast's Top 100 Cellar Selections of 2014

"It opens with an enticing fragrance of black berries, toast, Mediterranean spices and a touch of vanilla. The vibrant, youthful palate delivers a core of black cherry accented with black pepper layered with mocha, mint and tobacco notes. The racy acidity and solid but brooding tannins demonstrate that this wine still needs time to develop to its extraordinary potential."
