"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."

2009 Jacopo Biondi Santi Sassoalloro

"A landmark wine in the landscape of Italian enology, the 2009 Sassoalloro is a pure expression of the special Sangiovese Grosso clone BBS11 that the Biondi Santi family has safeguarded in the Tuscan territories of Montalcino and Scansano respectively. The 2009 vintage still needs time to flesh out and find its footing. Red rose, dried blackberry, moist clay and button mushroom all make subtle appearances on the feminine bouquet. Firm structure is present to carry this wine forward over the years."

2009 Petrolo Torrione

"The 2009 Torrione impresses for its sensual inner perfume, silky tannins and gracious overall balance. Sweet red cherries, strawberry jam, crushed flowers, herbs and spices meld together in this tasty red. Torrione isn’t the great bargain it once was, but is still a great introduction to the wines of Petrolo. This medium-bodied, feminine Sangiovese-based red is best enjoyed over the next 5-7 years, while the fruit is vibrant."

2008 Gagliole Rosso

"The 2008 Gagliole (Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon) is striking. Layers of dark plums and cherries are followed by tobacco, scorched earth, licorice and leather. The Gagliole presents terrific inner juiciness and fabulous length. The estate did not make its top Sangiovese, Pecchia, in 2008; all of the best fruit went into Gagliole. That appears to have been a very sound choice. I don't expect the 2008 Gagliole to be terribly long-lived, but it is quite pretty right now. A final burst of fruit informs the finish."
