"The 2006 I Sodi di San Niccolo is fabulous. Beautifully delineated aromatics meld into a breathtaking array of dark fruit, crushed rocks, smoke, tar, minerals and flowers in this totally thrilling Tuscan red. The fruit completely saturates the palate, while persistent notes of crushed rocks and all things mineral round things out. I love the way Malvasia Nera confers darkness, richness and power to the Sangioveto, but without abandoning a pure-bred Tuscan expression of sheer class. I Sodi has a track record of developing beautifully in bottle and I have no doubt that will be the case here."

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."

2009 Bibi Graetz Testamatta Rosso

"This red is supple, with bright cherry fruit offsetting the firm tannins. Tobacco and leather flavors, with a hint of tar, add complexity as this persists through the lingering aftertaste of tobacco and spice."
