In stock
Price: $29.99

Seductive and beguiling, this deeply floral Syrah bursts with brambly black and blue fruits, sun-warmed earth, smoke, incense, white pepper and crushed rocks. This ’09 wraps the palate with a velvety grip, but the wine’s acidic freshness makes it food-friendly and delicious with a range of dishes. Deriving from a vineyard with acidic, granite-laden soil, the Syrah grapes ferment in concrete tanks for about a month before aging in a combination of oak vats and casks for 12-18 months before bottling. Try pairing this aromatic wine with fish in olive sauce in the Provencal style, game or pork dishes.

Broad-shouldered, powerful, and intense, the ’09 Sizeranne Hermitage frames its succulent blue and black fruit with tapenade, fig paste, roasted game, espresso and scorched earth. It’s a supple yet brooding wine that fills the mouth with sweet, fine-grained tannins, building to a lingering finish. The Sizeranne Hermitage blends together Syrah grapes grown in three different vineyards--les Bessards, with granite soils; le Méal, with alluvial, calcareous soils; and les Greffieux, with silty soils--to create a beautifully balanced wine. After handpicking, the grapes ferment in concrete tanks and age in oak casks for 12-14 months before bottling.
Antinori Tignanello 2013 375ml
Antinori Tignanello 2013 375ml
PRE-ORDER
Price: $69.99

2013 is notable for its return to classic Chianti Classico weather: a wet spring, a perfect, sunny summer and an on-time October harvest. The ’13 Tignanello reflects this return to classic weather with a sophisticated, polished evocation. Cool and elegant, this wine wafts from the glass with notes of juicy red and brambly black fruits, cigar wrapper, graphite, licorice and smoke. It’s a restrained, finessed wine with enviable structure and a terrific balance between its sweet inner perfume, its driving minerality, its fresh acidity and its chewy, cheek-piquing tannins. An ideal blend of 80% Sangiovese, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc, Tignanello changed the Super-Tuscan game. Tignanello derives from a single 140-acre southwestern-facing vineyard of limestone-rich soils; Antinori separately ferments each plot in temperature-controlled stainless steel, ages each plot’s wine in barrels, some new and some used, for about a year, and only then makes the final blend. You’ll want to cellar this wine for a little while, but it will be breathtaking in time.

In Stock
Price: $94.99

Complex, interesting, compelling and surprising, Paolo Bea ’09 Sagrantino di Montefalco Passito is not a wine that you can relegate to one category. Bright garnet in the glass, this mono-varietal Sagrantino wafts with juicy cherries and dried berries, warm cigar wrapper, saline minerals, grilled herbs, balsamic and a kiss of citrus zest. At once sweet and savory, this Passito-style wine holds the palate in delicious tension; it’s a pure, energetic, complicated expression of Sagrantino, and it could only come from Umbria’s master. Bea let the grapes dry for a few weeks, concentrating their sugars and flavors, and then let them ferment with skin contact for 39 days before aging for almost three years on the lees in stainless steel, and bottling the wine almost five years after harvest. Just 200 cases made.

PRE-ORDER
Price: $109.00

2014 was a challenging vintage for Tenuta San Guido, but you’d never know it from the estate’s effortless, gracious ’14 Sassicaia. Layers of succulent red and blue fruits are framed with pencil lead, rain-spattered wildflowers, fresh loam, and warm baking spices in this lacy, mesmerizing Sassicaia bottling. This wine shows exquisite balance among its elements: lively acidity pairs with fine-grained tannins, a sweet inner perfume matches savory minerals, and rustic notes find their complement in a silky, beguiling mouth-feel. The ’14 Sassicaia shows a Burgundian profile to the legendary Bordeaux-style blend; it’s enjoyable out of the gate, yet it will develop nicely over the next decade or so. Tenuta San Guido ferments Sassicaia in temperature-controlled stainless steel with only indigenous yeasts; this wine ages in French oak barriques for about two years followed by a few months in bottle before release.

Dal Forno Romano Veneto Passito Vigna Sere 2004 375ml
PRE-ORDER
Regular Price $249.00

Crafted only in the best of vintages, Dal Forno Veneto Passito Vigna Seré is a labor of love, and in ‘04, the textured silky wine explodes on the palate with a profusion of red and black fruit, espresso, leather, exotic spices and wildflowers. Named Veneto Passito Vigna Seré because this dessert wines differs in protocol from the traditional dessert wine of the Veneto, Recioto, Dal Forno’s sweet wine is as luscious, decadent, age-worthy and mind-bending as you’d expect. A blend of 55% Corvina, 15% Rondinella, 20% Croatina, and 10% Oseletta, the grapes for Veneto Passito Vigna Seré dry for six months before pressing--this is twice as long as for Amarone and two months longer than Recioto. After drying, the grapes ferment in stainless steel and then the wine ages for three years in barriques before bottling. It’s a magical wine from a magical vintage, and it explains why Dal Forno is known as the “Grape King” of the Veneto.
