Fontodi Dino Amphora 2016 750ml
Fontodi Dino Amphora 2016 750ml
Price: $79.99

In its Dino Amphora, Fontodi set out to craft a wine that privileged its pure Sangiovese flavors, but in 2016, the estate got a concentrated, balanced, powerful, and energetic bottling. Opulent yet fresh, the ’16 Dino Amphora reflects its high quality, low quantity banner vintage--it’s a long-aging Sangiovese wine that will provide Sangiovese purists with decades of drinking enjoyment. Named “Dino” in honor of Fontodi owner-winemaker Giovanni Manetti’s father, Dino Amphora embodies its pure Italian spirit and honors its Tuscan heritage by aging in orci, or Tuscan-styled amphora crafted of Tuscan clay, made by Manetti Gusmano & Figli, Dino Manetti’s family business that still makes terracotta tiles today. This mono-varietal Sangiovese ferments with natural yeasts for thirty to forty days; the wine ages in orci for eight to ten months, followed by two months in stainless steel before resting in bottle. more info

Upon release, the ripe vintage 2007 Guado al Tasso was praised for its bold, intense and delicious profile. Now with more than a decade of age, this wine is firing on all cylinders, layering its rich frutti di bosco with grilled herbs, licorice, melted chocolate, exotic spices, and cigar wrapper; tertiary notes of black tea, potpourri, and truffles murmur in the background. Tannins mellowed, the wine glides with a velvety texture into its finish that’s accented by crystalline minerals and savory herbs. A blend that shifts with every vintage, the 2007 Guado is about 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, and 10% Cabernet Franc. For the 2007 Guado al Tasso, Antinori fermented each varietal separately for 15 to 20 days in temperature-controlled stainless steel and aged each varietal separately for 18 months in new barrique before blending and letting the wine rest in bottle for ten months before release. more info

Price: $199.00

Lush blue fruits and rich black cherries cavort with scents of warm loam, pressed fresh herbs, licorice, crushed minerals, and touches of new leather in the supple ’15 Le Pergole Torte. All of this wine’s elements come into play as it rolls across the palate, building to a powerful crescendo that resonates like a lingering gong. Intense and textured, this Le Pergole Torte reins in its luscious dry extract and seductive aromatics with its kinetic acidity, formidable tannins, and incredible, soaring structure--for all of its mesmerizing purity, sweet inner lift, and concentration, this wine needs some time in the cellar before true enjoyability. Widely acknowledged as the finest expression of Sangiovese, Montevertine's flagship wine gives the grape its due, placing it alongside Burgundy's Pinot Noir in terms of age-ability, finesse and nuance. A selection of Montevertine’s best Sangiovese grapes from vines aged 30 to 50 years grown in its high altitude Radda vineyards, this wine is vinified in cement, and it ages for a year in cask and then a year in barrique before being bottled, where the wine rests for at least six months before release. more info

Upon its release, the ’01 Vigna d’Alceo was called one of the greatest vintages, lauded for its beauty, focus, breadth and aromatic; almost two decades later, this wine is proving the mettle of that praise. It’s rare to find a wine that can match its sheer power with unmistakable finesse, but the ’01 Vigna d’Alceo, for all its muscularity, glides with a boxer’s grace, melding its sweet red and blue fruits with tarry earth, warm spices, potpourri, grilled herbs, black tea and licorice. Surprisingly ethereal for a Super Tuscan, this wine seems to float in the mouth, yet it’s also remarkably dense and complex, unfolding myriad layers as it coasts to a lingering, structured finish. A Bordeaux-style blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon with 15% Petit Verdot, this biodynamic Super Tuscan ferments with only natural yeasts and ages for a year in barrique followed by 18 to 24 months in bottle before release. more info
