99 WE: Enticing aromas of ripe berry, chopped herb, new leather, tobacco and a whiff of eucalyptus all mingle together on this gorgeous, vibrant red. The stunning, savory palate boasts juicy red cherry, pomegranate, white pepper and star anise while firm refined tannins and vibrant acidity lend structure and balance. It's already extraordinary and elegant but also young and primary, so give it time to fully develop. Drink 2023-2043. - Kerin O'Keefe, Wine Enthusiast

100 VM: Readers should do whatever they can to get their hands on a few bottles of the 2013 d'Alceo. Seamless and voluptuous in the glass, it is an epic wine that embodies all the qualities that make these terraced vineyards in Panzano so special. Blackberry jam, creme de cassis, plum, licorice and spice meld together in the glass, but it is the wine's textural intensity that elevates it into the realm of the profound. The 2013 has been nothing short of moving on the two occasions I tasted it recently. - Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

 

 

Rampolla Sammarco 2013 (1.5L) - $239.99/ea.

98 VM: The 2013 Sammarco is a stunning wine. Super-expressive aromatics make a strong opening statement in a wine endowed with myriad dimensions of nuance and complexity. The 2013 is deep and fleshy, with generous fruit, beautifully integrated tannins and exceptional finesse. Readers should not plan on opening a bottle of this any time soon, though, as it seems likely to age at a glacial pace. - Antonio Galloni, Vinous 

 

 

Petrolo Galatrona 2016 (1.5L) - $169.99/ea.

98 JS: The aromas of dried flowers, stones, dark tea leaves, hot tile, and dark berries. Full-bodied, yet tight and linear. Wonderful drive and depth. An extremely long and focused finish. A great wine. Needs four or five years to come together. Try in 2022. - James Suckling

 

 

Fattoria Le Pupille Saffredi 2015 (1.5L) - $159.89/ea.
99 JS/ 97 VM / 96 WA / 95 DE

Lowest price on the West Coast - 11% below market average!

 

99 JS: I love the currant and rosemary character of this wine. Some sage, too. Complex aromas that draw you in. Full body, extremely tight and chewy with a long and intense finish. The tannins are fantastic - so polished. Focused and beautiful. Mineral undertone with ash and hot stone highlighting the dark fruits. It goes on for minutes. Needs three or four years to come together. But a serious red all the way. - James Suckling 

 

 

Tua Rita Giusto Di Notri 2015 (1.5L) - $121.99/ea

96 WA: Here is a high performance wine from Stefano Frascolla and his family. The 2015 Giusto di Notri is mostly Cabernet Sauvignon with smaller parts Cabernet Franc and Merlot. The wine is contemporary, complex and gorgeous from tip to toe. You get a lot of power here and generous oak-driven tones of sweet espresso, chocolate and spice that surround a succulent core of dark fruit and candied cherry. All these elements appear even bigger and bolder in this warm vintage. - Monica Larner, Wine Advocate

 

 

Tenuta Di Trinoro 2012 (1.5L) - $409.00/ea
98 AG
In Stock                                                            BUY NOW

 

Lowest price on the West Coast - 5% below market average!

 

98 AG: Another stunning wine, the 2012 Tenuta di Trinoro wraps around the palate with stunning depth and power. Today, the flavors are incredibly primary, but it is the wines textural depth and nuance that impress. The 2012 boasts tremendous concentration, but there are no hard edges, just pure fruit and voluptuousness to burn. Readers should give the 2012 another 2-3 years in bottle. - Antonio Galloni, Vinous

 

 

Petrolo Galatrona 2011 (1.5L) - $199.99/ea.
99 JS / 95 AG / 95 WA

99 JS: This is a phenomenal pure merlot with blueberries, raspberries and hints of milk chocolate. Some nutmeg too. Full body with very fine yet chewy tannins and a long, intense finish. Reminds me of the amazing 1998. Best ever from here. Needs four or five years of bottle age to soften. - James Suckling

 

 

Ornellaia 2013 (1.5L) - $399.99/ea.

98 JS: Amazing graphite and violet aromas with dark fruits. Medium to full body, ultra-velvety tannins and a long and beautiful finish. Formed and tight. I love the fresh ginger underneath it all. This has a cool profile to the wine. So approachable yet has wonderful length. - James Suckling

 

 

Masseto 2011 (1.5L) - $1595.00/ea.

100 JS: Wow. Fabulous aromas of currants, rosemary, mint and orange peel. Perfect nose. Full body with perfectly integrated tannins. Its long and incredible with tangerine, toasted-oak, berry, terracotta and chocolate flavors. It lasts for minutes on the palate. This needs at least five years to soften but so spellbinding now. - James Suckling
