Antinori Chianti Classico Riserva Tignanello 2014 3L
Bright red fruits dance with brambly berries, warm baking spices, sweet basil, fresh loam, new saddle leather and a kiss of blood orange in this elegant, supple ’14 Chianti Classsico Riserva. While 2014 gave Antinori’s team many challenges, this wine doesn’t show their hard work; it almost skips across the palate with energetic acidity, peppering the cheeks with fine-grained tannins as it builds to a lingering, nervy finish. A blend of 90% Sangiovese and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, the grapes derive from Antinori’s Tenuta Tignanello estate in the Chianti Classico production zone. The grapes for this wine ferment in temperature-controlled stainless steel for about ten days; the wine undergoes malolactic fermentation in French oak, and it ages for 14 months in a combination of French and Hungarian oak, followed by a year in bottle.
Marchese Antinori Chianti Classico Riserva Tignanello 2015 3L
Luscious cherries and tart berries dance against a backdrop of new saddle leather, freshly pressed herbs, violet petals, warm baking spices, cigar wrapper and wisps of vanilla, cocoa powder and smoke in this gracious ’15 Chianti Classico Riserva. This wine balances its sweet inner perfume with vivid acidity and lots of fine-grained, polished tannins; a sturdy mineral core reverberates on the lingering, extended finish. A product of its lovely growing season, this ’15 Chianti Classico shows exquisite balance between its bright acidity and sweet, succulent fruit, as well as lovely structure for the long haul. A blend of 90% Sangiovese and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, the grapes derive from Antinori’s Tenuta Tignanello estate in the Chianti Classico production zone. The grapes for this wine ferment in temperature-controlled stainless steel for about ten days; the wine undergoes malolactic fermentation in French oak, and it ages for 14 months in a combination of French and Hungarian oak, followed by a year in bottle.
Tenute Silvio Nardi Brunello di Montalcino 2012 3L
A terrific choice for Brunello fans who love the wine’s trademark bright acidity, this ’12 bottling from Silvio Nardi layers its tart red and blue fruits on a foundation of leather, spices, crushed violet petals and cedar-strewn earth. This wine whooshes across the palate, scattering chewy tannins that stud the cheeks and building to a resonant finish. Structured and balanced, this ’12 Brunello could use a couple of years in the cellar before true enjoyment. A cuvée of grapes grown in Silvio Nardi’s vineyards, the grapes for this Bruenllo ferment in temperature-controlled tanks for about twenty days; the wine in a combination of French oak barriques, both new and used, as well as in botti, and it finishes with six months in bottle before release.
Antinori Cervaro della Sala Chardonnay 2012 3L
Always one of our very favorite Italian whites, the ’12 Cervaro della Sala complements its stone and citrus fruits with a lovely saline minerality, putting its notes of toasted hazelnuts, yellow herbs, and tropical fruit at the forefront. Sporting soils of clay, volcanic sediment and Pliocene fossils, the rolling land at Castello della Sala, named after its beautiful medieval fortress, imparts a mineral inflection to its wines, and Antinori’s careful winemaking puts this Umbrian terroir front and center. Umbria’s warm 2012 vintage kept Antinori’s team on their feet, but mindful observation and lots of experience allowed them to pick the Chardonnay and Grechetto at an optimal time, making for a wine that’s lush yet fresh, intense yet delineated, juicy yet savory--and absolutely balanced.
Il Poggione Brunello di Montalcino 2012 3L
Brooding cigar wrapper, sturdy minerals, sun-warmed earth and baking spices coddle the succulent red fruits and brambly blue fruits in the open-knit yet vibrant ’12 Brunello from Il Poggione. Smooth and refined, it uncurls on the palate to show a sweet inner perfume that meets its complement in savory minerals, polished tannins and an energetic acidity that propels the wine to a lingering finish. Il Poggione’s winemakers report that the challenging 2012 harvest was down a quarter, and you can feel the concentration in this intense, complex wine. Tucked in the southern Brunello di Montalcino zone, Il Poggione’s vineyards receive the benefit of a generous Mediterranean climate, and the estate has made a reputation for highly balanced, exceptionally age-worthy Brunellos. The estate's normale bottling blends across vineyards with a range of altitudes on its 247-acre estate (70% under vine); it ages for three years in barrique before bottling.
Montevertine Rosso 2014 3L
Sour cherries, baking spices, underbrush, crushed wildflowers, pressed herbs, and licorice waft from the glass of the pure, lifted ’14 Montevertine Rosso. The 2014 is an exceptionally elegant bottling, layering its sweet fruit on a restrained, almost austere framework of kinetic acidity and chewy tannins. While this wine can be enjoyed now, time in the cellar will tame its tannic edges and turn it into a pure symphony of Tuscan tradition. Mostly Sangiovese blended with 10% Colorino and Canaiolo, Montevertine Rosso derives mostly from a single six-acre south-southwest facing vineyard planted in 1982. Made in traditional Chianti fashion--fermented in cement vats for about three weeks followed by aging in Slavonian barrels for about two years--Montevertine Rosso is at its essence one of the most pure Chiantis from the maker of the most collectable mono-varietal Sangiovese Super-Tuscan wine, Le Pergole Torte.
Chavy Chouet Meursault Clos des Corvees de Citeau 2017 3L
Muscular and precise, the ’17 Meursault Clos des Corvées de Citeau layers its sweet orchard and stone fruits with saline minerals, burnt sugar, white wildflowers, crushed almonds and a lively spritz of grapefruit. This wonderfully balanced wine uncoils on the palate to reveal myriad delineated flavors, elegant minerality, and a terrific citrusy note that lingers on the wine’s extended finish. Chavy-Chouet’s Clos des Corvées de Citeau is a two-acre walled monopole that has been in the family since 1893; this wine ferments in tank before aging in barrel, mostly new, for about a year before bottling without fining or filtration.
Chavy Chouet Puligny Montrachet Les Enseigneres 2017 3L
The product of a classic, sunny growing season, this ’17 Les Enseignères bursts from the glass in a shower of white stone fruits, quince, and pear that are framed with lime zest, acacia blossoms, and a touch of smoky minerals. This expressive wine relishes its tensions between its kinetic acidity and its dry extract, its sweet fruits and its savory minerality, and its nice weightiness and its inner lift. Although a village-level wine, Chavy-Chouet Puligny-Montrachet Les Enseignères has always been an insider’s wine because it lies directly beneath the grand cru Bienvenues-Bâtard-Montrachet and shares much of the same power, richness and style at a fraction of the price. Deriving from the estate’s 2.5-acre clay and limestone Les Enseignères plot with 65-year-old vines, this wine ferments in tank before aging in barrel, mostly new, for about a year before bottling without fining or filtration. While this wine can be enjoyed early, this Les Enseignères will only become more beautiful given some time in the cellar.
Tenuta San Guido Guidalberto 2010 3L
Created by the estate to forestall premature consumption of the estate’s flagship wine, Sassicaia, Guidalberto is the second label of Tenuta San Guido. A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot kissed with Sangiovese, and one created in part from barrels made for Sassicaia, Guidalberto is a preferred drinking wine by many Bordeaux-blend-loving consumers who enjoy easy approachability in their wines. While not as introspective as Sassicaia, Guidalberto nonetheless shares the pedigree, quality and elegance of Sassicaia. Dense, intense and vibrant, Guidalberto shimmers with bright red cherries and brambly blackberries, even as its tannins ripple like velvet. It’s a lovely operetta of a wine, strewn with roses, dusted with spice and blessed with a striking, extended finish.
Il Poggione Brunello di Montalcino 2013 3L
A wine that finds beauty in its tensions, Il Poggione’s gorgeously crafted ’13 Brunello pairs its sweet fruits with savory underpinnings, chewy tannins with electric acidity, and intensity with finesse. Juicy red and black fruits dance against a background of peppery spices, underbrush, tarry earth, crushed minerals, licorice and wild herbs in this compelling, classy wine. Racy acidity animates the palate of this complex Brunello, while polished tannins cling to the cheeks on the long, structured finish. You’ll want to drink this wine right away, but it needs a few years to hit its stride, and then it’ll drink for years to come. Il Poggione selects the best grapes grown on the oldest vines for its Brunello; after fermenting with natural yeasts in temperature-controlled stainless steel, the wine ages for three years in barrique before bottling.
