Ornellaia

Ornellaia Bianco 2017

IGT Toscana

Ornellaia Bianco is Italy's most ambitious white wine. It is a result of the Estate’s desire to translate the exceptional properties of its terroir not only into red wines, but also into this magnificent white.

Wine Advocate "The previous vintage of this wine was made soley with Sauvignon Blanc, but as expected, the Ornellaia 2017 Ornellaia Bianco sees a small percentage of Viognier added to the blend.…

Domaine Chanson

Viré-Clessé 2018

Viré-Clessé, Burgundy

Chanson's regional wine, Viré Clessé is one of the best white wines of the region, combining suppleness and minerality. The appellation lies in the heart of the Mâcon appellation in the south of Burgundy. It's produced from a combination of Chardonnay and Chardonnay Muscaté grapes. 

Masciarelli

Marina Cvetic Trebbiano d’Abruzzo Riserva 2017

Trebbiano d'Abruzzo

The Trebbiano Riserva Marina Cvetic represents the ultimate expression for the estate of one of the historical vines of Abruzzo.  Like Montepulciano, Trebbiano was once thought to be a workhorse grape without the potential to produce great wine. The interpretation of this wine is original and has a character. Marina Cvetic wines have full body and are elegant and are a “lone voice” for the most demanding and technical experts.

Wine Advocate "With fruit culled from the gorgeous, hilly landscape of San Martino sulla Marrucina, the Marina Cvetić 2017 Trebbiano d'Abruzzo Riserva ultimately shows more intensity on the bouquet than it does…

Masciarelli

Marina Cvetic ISKRA 2016

Montepulciano d'Abruzzo Colline Teramane DOCG

ISKRA is the Serbian word for “spark,” and Gianni Masciarelli dedicated this wine to his wife, Marina Cvetic, who is from Serbia. It is among the Marina Cvetic line of wines, which Gianni created for his wife. Made from a single-vineyard cru of Montepulciano d’Abruzzo, ISKRA is a wine of extraordinary distinction and depth.

Wine Advocate “The Marina Cvetić 2016 Montepulciano d'Abruzzo Colline Teramane Riserva Iskra hits it out of the ballpark with an extra crisp zing and an energetic quality of fruit. I always think…

Errázuriz

MAX Chardonnay 2019

Aconcagua Costa

One of Francisco Baettig’s favorite varietals to work with, year after year MAX Chardonnay is noted for its crispness and lively acidity. The exceptional soils and cool ocean breeze provide optimal conditions for Chardonnay in Errazuriz' coastal vineyards, located just 8 miles from the Pacific. Th­e diverse soils control plant vigor, producing fruit that is balanced yet intensely concentrated, with a beautiful fresh citrus and mineral profile.

James Suckling "Vibrant, attractive peaches and pears and a succulent palate that has a tart-citrus finish."

Finca Decero

Amano 2016

Agrelo, Mendoza, Argentina

Decero Amano takes its name from the “Amano” or “by hand” approach. As the pinnacle of the winery's achievements each vintage, Decero Amano is a blend of the most distinctive parcels from the Remolinos Vineyard. The wine is a blend of Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Tannat: violet aromas emanate from the Malbec, red fruit flavors and structure of the Cabernet gives excellent length, while the jasmine perfumed Petit Verdot brings firm tannins as does the Tannat, which adds even more textural complexity.

There are no revidews for this wine, yet.

Finca Decero

The Owl & The Dust Devil 2016

Agrelo, Mendoza, Argentina

The Owl & The Dust Devil represents the wild side of Finca Decero, an exceptionally expressive and intense red blend that has as its core some of the specialties of Finca Decero. Its impact on the palate is matched by its groundbreaking Virtual Reality packaging.

Attems

Pinot Grigio 2019

Friuli DOC

The Attems Pinot Grigio demonstrates all of the amazing qualities of the Collio region in Friuli Venezia-Giulia: it has superb weight and texture, and is mineral-edged, savory, tangy, and lively.

Tommasi

Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Riserva Ca’ Florian 2011

Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Riserva DOCG

Amarone Riserva “Ca ‘Florian” is made with selected grapes from one of the oldest vineyards owned by the Tommasi family, with vines averaging 30 years. 

Wine Advocate "The 2011 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Riserva Ca' Florian was born in a very hot year. The overhead Pergola training system helps to shade the grapes from the heat, and…

James Suckling "A rich and very polished Amarone with dark-berry, dark-chocolate and black-tea aromas and flavors. Full-bodied with integrated tannins that are sweet and polished."

Casisano

Rosso di Montalcino 2017

Rosso di Montalcino DOC

The Casisano Rosso di Montalcino is a red-fruited, traditional Sangiovese that comes from vineyards nestled in the southern hills of one of Italy's most renowned wine producing areas, midway between the towns of Sant'Angelo in Colle and Castelnuovo dell'Abate in the heart of Montalcino. The wine is a classic expression of Sangiovese Grosso, the Sangiovese clone used to make both Rosso and Brunello di Montalcino.

Jancis Robinson "Lustrous mid ruby. Rich and generous on the nose with a hint of spicy oak that is perfectly integrated. Supple and juicy on the palate with bags of grainy tannins.…

Chateau Montelena

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Napa Valley, California

The Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is a medium-bodied wine offering notable raciness up front, compelling freshness and depth of flavor. The earthy, complex and concentrated Cabernet Sauvignon is softened by the judicious addition of Merlot. This is a wine that delivers immediate pleasure upon release.

Langlois-Chateau

Château de Fontaine-Audon Sancerre 2018

Loire Valley, France

The crown jewel of Langlois’ Sancerre holdings is at Château de Fontaine-Audon, a 37-acre vineyard from which they produce a single-vineyard Sancerre of the same name. 100% Sauvignon Blanc grown entirely on silex (flint) terroir, Langlois-Chateau’s single-vineyard Sancerre undergoes a gentle pressing, is fermented in stainless steel and then is kept on its lees for 6 months until bottling in April. 

Jeb Dunnuck "The 2018 Sancerre Château de Fontaine-Audon is a charming, nicely balanced, medium-bodied effort offering pretty white peach and citrus fruits as well as some classic Loire sappy herb and minerality,…

Domaine des Baumard

Savennières 2017

Savennières

Jeb Dunnuck "The base 2017 Savennières from Baumard is outstanding, offering pretty notes of golden apples, pears, hazelnuts, wet stones, and a touch of brioche. Nicely textured, medium-bodied, and beautifully balanced on…

E. Guigal

Côtes du Rhône Rosé 2019

Côtes du Rhône

The Guigal family has made serious rosé wines since the 1940s, and their Côtes du Rhône Rosé, like all their Côtes du Rhône wines, is humble in name only. The wine bursts with irresistible fresh red fruits and yet is also long and satisfying. Because of its quality and body, it's a rosé that you can bring to the table, and do so all year long. It is a rosé that offers both refreshment and pleasure.

There are no revidews for this wine, yet.

Ornellaia

Ornellaia 2017

Bolgheri DOC Superiore

Ornellaia is the estate's "Grand Vin," with exceptional balance, power, elegance, and great aging potential. It faithfully reflects, in every vintage, its nature, site, and distinctive Mediterranean personality.

Wine Advocate "This vintage of Ornellaia is called Solare and represents the 12th edition in the estate's Vendemmia d'Artista series featuring artwork by Tomás Saraceno. His beautiful art depicts a radiant sun…

Vinous Media "A stunning wine, the 2017 Ornellaia offers a captivating interplay of richness and energy. Picking early was the key. Young vine Cabernet Sauvignon and Franc were harvested in August for…

Paternoster

Synthesi Aglianico del Vulture 2017

Aglianico del Vulture DOC

James Suckling "Faded redcurrants, mahogany and tar are the driving factors here. Medium-bodied and quite fresh, this red lacks a bit of oomph and density, yet delivers a taut, mouthwatering offering." 

Vinous Media “Bright medium red-ruby color. Perfumed nose offers red cherry, rose, violet and spicy oak. Juicy, spicy and inky, with nicely concentrated sour red cherry fruit and graphite nuances lifted by…

Château La Serre

Château La Serre 2017

Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Classe

Wine Enthusiast "This is ripe and spicy with smoky tobacco notes, yet it is also crisp with light footed acidity. Soft, full tannins from the dominant Merlot pull it all together. It…

Jeb Dunnuck "A blend of 85% merlot and 15% Cabernet franc from the clay and limestone soil on the plateau of Saint-Emillion, the 2017 Chateau La Serre sports a lively ruby hue…

Château La Fleur-Pétrus

Château La Fleur-Pétrus 2017

Pomerol

From a wine of utter charm, La Fleur-Petrus has through the developments of the last 20 years become a wine of profound depth and complexity, all the while retaining its irresistible, seductive edge. You could even call it the archetype of  Pomerol.

Wine Spectator (93-96) "Fleshy and solid in feel, delivering warm plum and blackberry confiture notes inlaid with ample tobacco and licorice hints. There's a strong graphite streak through the finish, with admirable grip…

James Suckling "There's a slightly smoky edge to the nose with a wealth of ripe dark and red plums, as well as violets, blueberries and wet earth. The palate is very plush…

Jeb Dunnuck "From a slightly larger vineyard covering 46 acres, the 2017 Chateau la Fleur Petrus is a gorgeous wine that stays in the classic style of the vintage yet still packs…

Errázuriz

MAX Sauvignon Blanc 2019

Aconcagua Costa

It's becoming common knowledge, Errazuriz is one of the most interesting quality areas to grow Sauvignon Blanc, with wines that sit between the fruit of New Zealand and the minerality of the Loire Valley. MAX Sauvignon Blanc grapes come from the Manzanar Vineyard in Chile's newest appellation, Aconcagua Costa. Planted by Errazuriz in 2005 and just 8 miles from the Pacific Ocean, the combination of cool climate and diverse, quality soils creates wines with tremendous freshness and bracing minerality.

James Suckling "Very fresh, attractive aromas of lemons and green mangoes here with light herbal accents, too. The palate has such intense, fresh citrus with tropical flavors and young peaches to close."
