Canalicchio di Sopra Brunello di Montalcino 2015 375ml
In Stock
Price: $69.99

2015 saw a remarkable, ripe vintage that ended in lush, rich wines with both keen, fresh acidity and high alcohol--Canalicchio di Sopra’s ’15 Brunello embodies its banner vintage with verve, intensity, and depth. Juicy black cherries and sumptuous blackberries dance against a savory backdrop of warm earth, cedar, smoky minerals, and wild herbs, all offset by subtle wildflowers and sweet baking spices. This entrancing Brunello unspools with a creamy, rich mouthfeel as it reveals layer after layer of flavors that are supported on a framework of fine-grained tannins, vibrant acidity, and elegant minerality. The spicy finish lingers in the mouth for minutes! A blend deriving from the estate’s high altitude vineyards, grapes ferment in temperature-controlled vats, and the wine ages for 36 months in barrels, followed by a year in bottle before release. Canalicchio Brunello consistently offers a tremendous price-to-quality ratio, and the 2015 bottling is an outstanding evocation of its banner vintage! more info

Christopher Deas, Italian Wine Merchants: “I know everyone is focused on the ripe 2015s, but this get me excited about 2018, just as the Valdicava Rosso did. This is a true, grand cru-like Baby Brunello from the cult producer Salvioni and prized vineyards at La Cerbaiola. Just two casks are produced in select vintages, and it is a rarity that overdelivers. What we appreciate best about the wine is the approachability. Like the older sibling Brunello, it has a nose that simply grabs you by the nostrils and pulls you in. The purity and concentration of fruit is simply awesome and that is the benefit of the lesser aging, as there is freshness with elegance. Red fruit galore, red cherries, wild berries, crushed flowers, herbs and exotic spices. The finish does lets you know we are in Montalcino with drying tannins making their presence known. Hard not to drink this bottle quick, it is that delicious.” more info

Fuligni Brunello di Montalcino Riserva 2010 750ml
In Stock
Price: $179.99
Special Price: $139.99

Deep, dark, juicy fruit macerates with fresh-cut herbs, crushed lavender and flower petals, warm cigar wrapper, and baking spices in this enthralling, brooding wine. This Brunello Riserva shows its extra time, special care, and careful selection in its intensity, focus and structure. It rolls across the palate to reveal myriad notes, plenty of fine-grained tannins, and an abundance of dry extract, and it builds to a very long, lingering finish. Made only in the very best years, Fuligni’s Brunello di Montalcino Riserva selects from grapes grown on its oldest vines. Fuligni prizes intensely low yields and manual labor in the vineyards, and they redouble these efforts with their prized Riserva bottlings, which age in wood and bottle for five years before release. Fewer than 1,000 cases of Fuligni Brunello Riserva were made in this benchmark ’10 vintage. This wine is ideal for enthusiasts with cellar space; it needs at least two years for true enjoyment. more info

At once graceful and deceptively muscular, Cerbaiola’s ’13 Brunello dances out of the glass in a profusion of red and blue fruits, pressed violet petals, crushed river rocks, underbrush, orange zest, and spicy, peppery herbs. This wine embraces its contrasts, managing to be intense and precise, delicate and tannic, tightly wound and enveloping. Building to a lingering finish accented by savory minerality, this wine is intensely satisfying. Relying on traditional viniculture, Cerbaiola gives its grapes an extended maceration of 28 to 30 days in stainless steel, which is also used for fermentation (although usually without temperature control), and then the wine ages in large Slovenian oak barrels for three years and in bottles for at least six months. While approachable now with some decanting, this wine is ideal for Brunello fans with cellar space. more info

Christopher Deas, Italian Wine Merchants: "Simply stunning, its another mediation wine from Gianfranco and Monica Soldera. Where many 2015s Brunellos are about opulence and have more baby fat to them, the Soldera Sangiovese, for myself and the IWM team, offered more restraint and complexity, with signature fruit of the vintage lurking in the background. The magic of Soldera is truly an exercise in patience and time in the glass as it shows best with age or slow aeration. We tasted this wine over 48 hours and with air the young 2015 Soldera is capable of mesmerizing today. With time, you can expect nuances of black cherry, wild berries, citrus peel, crushed flowers, sweet tobacco, saddle leather, forest floor, mushrooms, game, walnut, spice, with a salty minerality. While quiet at first, the wine becomes super expressive and you find layer upon layer of complexity each time you go back to the glass. It truly one of those ethereal wines of mediation where you find yourself searching for adjectives and descriptors. It is one of the last great vintages under the guidance of Gianfranco with his daughter Monica. As Monica has mentioned, it is a wine that delivers a “rainbow of emotions” and that is on the aromatics alone for IWM. This is a must wine to experience.” more info
