Michele Chiarlo Barolo Tortoniano 2012 750ml
In Stock
Price: $59.99
Special Price: $34.99

Christopher Deas, Italian Wine Merchants: “This wine is now in a magic spot with eight years of maturity from the 2012 vintage, as the tertiary flavors are just entering the profile. The Tortoniano label is best known for its soft inviting fruit and elegance, showcasing a more feminine side of Barolo. Well, it’s silky texture and exotic nuances are on full display today. The nose reveals notes of dried cherries, roses, potpourri, and black tea. On the palate, sweet cherries, blood orange, cinnamon, cocoa, tobacco, a touch of smoke, leather, truffle, and underbrush all join the party, adding an umami element to this richly layered expression. The wine becomes more herbal and tea-like on a dry and coiled finish that hints at further aging. But for today, what’s not to like? This is simply fun drinking, seamless Barolo, delivered at a ridiculously fair price. Let the wine breathe an hour or two for best results. more info

PRE-ARRIVAL
Price: $47.99

Christopher Deas, Italian Wine Merchants: “Twenty years in the business and I can say I simply forgot about the wines of Carlo Giacosa. I knew of them in the early days, but was quick to disregard, thinking how can anyone live up to the name Giacosa? Well, Carlo Giacosa does it with value and tradition with these two prized selections – Narin and Montefico, and they are not to be missed. The wines capture the classic 2016 vintage brilliantly. While the rest of the IWM team slightly favored the cru Montefico expression, as it had more a little more depth and structure, showcasing a more savory side, I loved the more feminine Barbaresco Narin for its approachability on the palate and in the pocket. I mean this is an all-star cuvée consisting of fruit from the prized crus of Asili, Montefico, and Ovello. It delivers what a more traditional cuvée should, and that is more balance and harmony in its youth than the sibling cru expression. This is a rich and chewy Barbaresco and you can expect to find nuances of wild berries, dried flowers, orange rind, licorice, cinnamon, herbs, and baked earth. It is a Barbaresco that will appeal to the fans of both Nebbiolo and Sangiovese and it is deceivingly approachable today. Unfortunately, just 400 cases are produced with a handful arriving in the US. It is simply great value for a Barbaresco with pedigree you will not need to wait forever on.” more info

Peppery spices, crushed herbs, violet petals, warm loam, and a kiss of oak frame the juicy red and blue fruits in this zesty, full-throttle ’15 Chianti Classico. This appealing wine wraps its sweet fruits around a savory mineral core and finishes with lovely dusty tannins that linger on the palate. Deriving from grapes grown in in the San Casciano Val di Pesa located in the western section of the Chianti Classico zone, this Chianti Classico is mostly Sangiovese with about 10% Merlot; grapes enjoy temperature-controlled fermentation, and the wine ages for a year, half in French oak barrels and half in steel, before bottling and resting for six more months. more info

Tormaresca Bocca di Lupo Castel del Monte 2015 750ml
Pre-Arrival
Price: $59.99
Special Price: $42.99

Balsamic herbs, flinty soil, warm spices, potpourri and berry jam frame the pure, opulent red and blue fruits in the ’15 Bocca di Lupo. Balanced and beautiful, this wine’s firm tannins cling to the cheeks as elegant minerality and fresh acidity propel the wine’s resonant finish. After allowing the Aglianico grapes to ripen fully, Tormaresca vinifies them in temperature-controlled stainless steel, and the wine ferments in barrique for fifteen months and ages in the bottle for two years before release. While Aglianico frequently requires time in the cellar before enjoyment, this bottle from Antinori's Tormaresca allows for earlier approachability, yet it sacrifices nothing for longevity. more info

Castello di Ama San Lorenzo Chianti Classico Gran Selezione 2016 750ml
In Stock
Price: $59.99
Special Price: $44.99

Christopher Deas, Italian Wine Merchants: “Castello di Ama’s super cuvee is a blend of four vineyards including the prized Bellavista and La Casuccia and it is a pecial expression from the vaunted vintage. It begins with a pronounced nose of black cherry and olives that let you know you are in Tuscany. On the palate this is a whole lot of wine. A mouthful of soft and generous fruit coats the palate, then under that layer of fruit is the signature minerality and structure of this beloved wine.  You can expect nuances of black cherries, blackberry, plum, licorice, mint, tobacco leaf, iron minerality and baked earth. There are shades of flavor here, but it is the signature black cherry note that is so seductive and compelling.  This is a whole lot of wine you might describe as big and masculine Chianti with a lot of fruit, structure, and layers.  It can be enjoyed today with aeration, but the best is yet to come. “ more info

Bodega Chacra Pinot Noir Cincuenta y Cinco 2019 750ml
Currently Unavailable
Price: $54.99
Special Price: $44.99

Christopher Deas, Italian Wine Merchants: “The Cincuenta y Cinco, pure Pinot Noir from a vineyard planted in 1955 as captured in its name - Cincuenta y Cinco). It is vibrant expression that screams Bodega Chacra right from the glass on the nose and palate. All the signature red fruit nuances are there, it is an explosion of red and blue fruit with bright cherries, raspberries, pomegranate, cranberries, a touch of citrus along with the perfect accent of crushed flowers, dried herbs and earth. For IWM team, this is the most delicate, finessed and arguably purest expression to date – at just 12% alcohol, this is a wine that you can drink the whole bottle (as we did) and not feel the aftermath. While elegant and light on its feet, there is a concentrated core that persistently builds and lingers, echoing throughout the palate that says Cincuenta y Cinco. With air-time, the wine gains weight and texture and it is our recommendation that it should be allowed to breathe. What can we say, we love this Burgundian-like expression that remains uniquely Patagonia and continues to make you rethink what the noble varietal can achieve outside the Cote d’Or. Well done, once again.” more info

Badia a Passignano Chianti Classico Gran Selezione 2016 750ml
Pre-Arrival
Price: $59.99
Special Price: $49.99

Christopher Deas, Italian Wine Merchants: “Honestly, I did not believe there could be a wine that could surpass the 2015 release, we still have many clients asking for the wine today. However, the 2016 Badia a Passignano lives up to the vintage hype. For IWM, it is not Tignanello or even Solaia that should be watched, it is this Chianti Classico Gran Selezione that demands attention, as few wines have improved so greatly over the past few years and are delivered at this price point. It is a serious crowd pleaser, jaw-droppingly delicious right out of the bottle with four years of age. Ripe black cherries, even macerated cherries, plum and once you get past the generous fruit, you begin to experience wild herbs, cedar, earth and stony minerality. Stunningly elegant and inviting with its almost creamy texture, but there is balance with freshness and acidity. It has plenty of years ahead of it but hard to resist today. This is a MUST stop on the Chianti trail with dinner at Osteria di Passignano - right there in the historic vineyards. Simply magical – that goes for the wine, vineyard and restaurant.” more info
