  1. Uccelliera Rosso di Montalcino

    2018 / 750 ml. | Item#54006

    VN9393 pts. - Vinous - Apr 2020
    Luminous dark red. Lively aromas of redcurrant, red licorice, and mint, plus complicating nuances of balsamic oils and violet. Juicy, spicy flavors of red berries and cherries are very deep and pure. In a cooler, low-fat style than usual for this wine, with harmonious acidity nicely extending the flavors on the long juicy and perfumed back end. A declassified Brunello, this is a really outstanding Rosso di Montalcino.

    The 2018 Rosso di Montalcino is noted by candied strawberry, fresh roses, and fennel. Fresh with bright red cherry and dried tea leaf, it offers a crisp structure, with lift and fine present tannins. If you enjoy more tension, the 2018 is perfect for early drinking 2021–2026.

  2. Antichi Vignetti di Cantalupo Agamium

    2018 / 750 ml. | Item#53485

    VN9191 pts. - Vinous - Oct 2020
    The 2018 Nebbiolo Colline Novaresi Agamium is a terrific introduction to these wines. Freshly cut flowers, sweet red berry fruit, mint and orange peel are beautifully delineated. The 2018s is vinous and fresh, but it also has plenty of depth too. All the elements are impeccably balanced.

  3. Giacomo Mori Chianti

    2018 / 750 ml. | Item#53441

    VN9292 pts. - Vinous - Sep 2020
    Mori’s 2018 Chianti is absolutely delicious. Bright and punchy, with tons of Sangiovese character, the 2018 bristles with energy. Sweet red cherry, white pepper, mint and chalk all race out of the glass in a translucent, mid-weight Chianti Classico that hits all the right notes. Floral and orange zest accents perk up the finish nicely. The 2018 is a fabulous wine by any measure.
