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

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

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

Crisp, fresh, and superbly textured, the complex Intense "Mag 15" wraps its juicy orchard fruits around a classic Champagne spine of pastry dough, white flower petals, toasted almonds, and fruit compote.

Christopher Deas, Italian Wine Merchants: “It is modern meets Old World at this prized address. And with its cherished high-altitude location coupled with an organic approach in the vineyards, there is underlying power to the textural unctuosity and sweetness of both fruit and tannins here. In 2015, the La Serena is large scaled, displaying the signature descriptors of richness, density, and earth. You can expect nuances of black cherries, blackberries, plum, dried flowers, licorice, tar, and herbal undertones that build on the finish. I describe this wine as a more masculine expression, not in structure, but in that there is a darker fruit element mixed in with tar, game, underbrush, and smoke. At the same time, the wine is chewy and welcoming on the palate. Now, here is the most important tip to enjoying this wine today (if you must), let it breathe for a few hours, as there is some baby fat. Let those earthy and woodsy notes on the nose blow off, and let the fruit in the glass calm down and integrate so you can experience the balance and purity that lies underneath. Great value.” more info

Christopher Deas, Italian Wine Merchants: “[Tasted over 72 hours]. Twenty years ago, when IWM started carrying the wines of Alto Piemonte, we always recommended looking at the wines from this cool region in a warm, ripe vintage. The added fruit provides the body needed to match the vibrant acidity of these wild, mountain wines. Well, in 2015, that is exactly what we have, and it is the perfect vintage to mark the 60th Anniversary of this special and small cooperative. In fact, this is soft and inviting Nebbiolo, marked by sweet and succulent red fruit and nuances that cover much of the flavor spectrum. The nose will transport you to Piemonte and on the palate you can expect notes of wild strawberries, sour cherries, cranberry, citrus, potpourri, brown spice, tobacco leaf, leather, and forest floor. This is an elegant, and old fashioned Nebbiolo expression – the perfect wine for the thirsty traveler. Best of all, this is a wine that can be enjoyed today, especially with a two hour decant. Highly recommend.” more info
