Sassicaia

"The 1988 Sassicaia retains its spellbinding bouquet; pure black plum, tobacco, melted tar and liquorices, demonstrating thrilling definition and life-affirming vigour. The palate is medium-bodied with a beguiling sense of symmetry: perfect balance between austerity and Tuscan voluptuousness, yet the complement each other rather than cancelling each other out. Crushed stones, a touch of black pepper, burnt toast, very fresh on the Graves-like finish, this is Sassicaia in excelsis. Tasted February 2010." - Neal Martin

Gaja Costa Russi

'1999 Langhe Costa Russi—Dark ruby. The 1999 Costa Russi is a soft, supple effort for the vintage, with a deeply nuanced nose and a rich core of sweet dark fruit buffered by prominent minerality on the seamless, long palate. Although not especially complex, this Costa Russi exhibits an elegance and finesse in its understated expression, and it is undoubtedly a highly enjoyable wine. True to type, it is also the most accessible of the single-vineyard wines from Barbaresco. It should age gracefully until at least age 20.' - Antonio Galloni

Tignanello

"The estate's 1999 Tignanello is a wine in which the Sangiovese plays a leading role. Classic notes of tobacco, dried cherries, spices, leather and underbrush all emerge from this sweet, layered offering. This richly textured generous Tignanello has put on significant weight in bottle and shows remarkable overall balance. In 1999 Tignanello comes across as more complete than Solaia." - Antonio Galloni

Masseto

"I was thrilled to finally taste a good bottle of the 2000 Masseto after having quite a bit of bad luck. The 2000 won't set the world on fire, but the best bottles are quite harmonious, and even better, they won't require the cellaring needed age more recent vintages." - Antonio Galloni

Masseto

"The 2003 Masseto is another product of a difficult year, but in this case it is a vintage characterized by brutal, unrelenting heat. The estate made the decision to use only the central, oldest part of the vineyard, but even that was not enough to fully counter the effects of the sweltering heat. The 2003 is an opulent, port-like Masseto loaded with sweet, dense fruit. It retains good freshness and delineation, but the style is very ripe and heavy." - Antonio Galloni

Romano Dal Forno, Vigna Sere Passito

"The 2004 Vigna Sere is the perfect conclusion to a vintage that will go down as one of Dal Forno’s most magical. Sweet, silky tannins support layers of super-refined, elegant fruit in this magical sweet red. Mocha, espresso, new leather, raspberry jam and spices emerge with time in the glass, but this is really a wine that shows off textural finesse more than anything else. I have tasted this wine many times since it was in barrel and later in bottle. It has never been anything less than spellbinding. It is one of the most magical sweet dessert wines I have ever tasted. At eight years of age the 2004 remains a an infant. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024." - The Wine Advocate

Gaja Darmagi

'Varietal Cabernet Sauvignon aromas and flavors take a back seat to a plump, jammy expression of fruit in the 2004 Darmagi. Made in a very Piedmontese style, it seems to have more in common with Barbera than Cabernet, an impression which is reinforced the more it sits in the glass. This perfumed wine is bursting with pure, clean, well-delineated fruit. It is a lovely effort, yet readers expecting a more representative example of Cabernet Sauvignon will probably be happier looking elsewhere, as this is a very unusual Darmagi.' - Antonio Galloni

Masseto

"As hard as it may seem to believe, the 2004 Masseto is even more expressive. It, too, is incredibly silky, bright and polished, with captivating aromatics, nuanced red cherry fruit and stunning overall balance. The mid-weight, gracious style bears some resemblance to the 2010. From magnum, the 2004 is a showstopper." - Antonio Galloni

Valdicava Brunello di Montalcino

"The 2005 Brunello di Montalcino is a dark, brooding wine that flows with the essence of smoke, tar, earthiness, wild cherries and iron. This is one of most rich, concentrated Brunellos of the vintage. Dark and enveloping on the palate, this powerful, virile Brunellos closes with substantial heft. It should age beautifully on the depth of its fruit, but readers will experience a far more complete drinking experience if the wine is given a few years to shed some of its baby fat." - Antonio Galloni

Gaja Barbaresco

"The 2006 Barbaresco reveals terrific concentration, depth and purity. This is a remarkably soft, harmonious Barbaresco from Angelo Gaja with pretty notes of raspberries, crushed flowers and spices. The wine turns more powerful in the glass, as it gains additional richness, volume and depth, all of which carry through to the polished finish. The wine's balance is impeccable, and this is easily is one the more harmonious, complete wines of the vintage." - Antonio Galloni

Biondi Santi Brunello di Montalcino II Greppo

"The 2007 Brunello di Montalcino is gorgeous. The estate’s preference for picking on the early side is one of the factors that help balance some of the fleshiness of the vintage. This is an especially silky, supple Brunello from Biondi-Santi. The overt personality of the year comes through, but not at the expense of the house’s style. Floral notes reappear to frame the elegant, expressive finish. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2037." - Antonio Galloni

Biondi Santi Brunello di Montalcino II Greppo

"The 2008 Brunello di Montalcino Annata is quite pretty in this vintage. It displays a classic profile of underbrush, tobacco, smoke, licorice and black cherries. The tannins are firm but nicely balanced. I expect the 2008 will drink well with minimum cellaring. It is one of the more open Brunellos I can remember tasting here. Still, there is plenty of Biondi Santi kick in the wine's acidity and tannin profile." - Antonio Galloni

Soldera Case Basse Toscana Sangiovese

"After the highly unusual and exotic 2007, the 2008 Toscana Sangiovese marks a return to a more classic Soldera style. Here the flavors are quite bold and savory, while the structure is that of a wine built for aging. Sage, rosemary, tobacco, mint and leather notes wrap around a core of dark red stone fruits as this vivid, crystalline wine shows off its personality and pedigree. Readers lucky enough to find the 2008 are in for a thrill." - Antonio Galloni

Soldera Case Basse Toscana Sangiovese

"Soldera's next release is the 2009 Toscana Sangiovese, which is still in cask. The raciness, warmth and overall intensity of the year come through in a powerful, structured wine that still needs time to fully come together. The tannins remain quite imposing, but I am inclined to think the 2009 will open up earlier than is typically the case here. We will see. I remember visiting Case Basse in the summer of 2009, a few weeks before this fruit was harvested. It is fascinating to taste the 2009 again from cask, a few months before it goes into bottle." - Antonio Galloni

Grattamacco Bolgheri Superiore

"The 2010 Bolgheri Superiore Grattamacco shows a sharpened sense of focus and clarity. The blend is Cabernet Sauvignon (65%) with Merlot and Sangiovese and the wine delivers its aromas with lift and purpose. A pretty spot of acidity helps to define the deep concentration and sheer power of this opulent red. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024." - The Wine Advocate

Casanova Di Neri, Brunello di Montalcino Cerretalto

"This is a towering achievement. It is delightful on every level. The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Cerretalto is an expressive, exuberant and stunning wine that opens to a dark ruby color and rich consistency. The bouquet is never-ending with immediate intensity that is followed closely by finely-tuned aromas of black cherry, spice, grilled herb, clove, tobacco, wet earth and white truffle. A gorgeous display of elegant mineral tones rises from the bouquet with time. Later, those aromas turn to cola, licorice and tar. This wine showed an impressive evolution over the 24 hours I tasted it and delivered solid improvements each time. The mouthfeel is silky and smooth, and there's enough power here to move the wine over the palate in seamless fashion. This is a bottle for the back of your cellar." - Monica Larner, The Wine Advocate

Biondi Santi Brunello di Montalcino II Greppo

"The 2011 Brunello di Montalcino Annata is silky, soft and open-knit, especially within the context of what has been the norm at Biondi Santi for the last few decades. Freshly cut flowers, red berries and mint all open up in the glass, but it is the wine's decidedly mid-weight structure that truly stands out. The 2011 is a very rare young Biondi Santi that will drink well pretty much upon release, as shocked as I myself am to write those words. The bright red cherry, raspberry and floral overtones have an almost Nebbiolo-sense of brightness." - Antonio Galloni

Tignanello

"The 2012 Tignanello is deep, rich and voluptuous, yet also retains a distinct element of classicism in its focused, mid-weight structure. Dark red cherry, pomegranate, kirsch, spice, tobacco and menthol open up in the glass, but only reluctantly. Firm veins of tannin and pulsating acidity give the wine its sense of energy and verticality. The mid-weight structure should allow the wine to open up in another few years. The 2012 isn't as powerful as the 2010 or exotic as the 2011, but rather is most similar to how the 2005 was in its youth. The 2012 is a Tignanello built on pure finesse and grace. I would not open a bottle before its tenth birthday, if at all possible." - Antonio Galloni

Salvioni Cerbaiola Brunello di Montalcino

"Good full red. Expressive aromas of dark cherry, rose petal, violet, fresh herbs and flnty minerals. Juicy, bright and gripping, in a more floral rather than fruity style currently, with substantial building tannins and high, lively acidity giving this a slightly austere quality at present. Finishes bright and long, with a youthful but noteworthy metallic edge and a strong note of violet; will it ever develop the fruit to rank along Salvioni’s many other great wines? One of the most backwards 2012 Brunellos I tasted this year, I’d forget about this in the cellar for another decade or so." - Ian D'Agata, Vinous Media

Sassicaia

"The 2012 Sassicaia is dark and immediate, with gorgeous up-front richness, density and power. Black cherry jam, cloves and new leather are some of the many signatures that take shape in the glass.

Today, it is a bit monolithic, so readers need to be patient." - Antonio Galloni

Le Serre Nuove

"I have always been a big fan of this wine. The 2013 Bolgheri Rosso Le Serre Nuove is a generous blend of Merlot (32%), Cabernet Sauvignon (36%), Cabernet Franc (20%) and Petit Verdot (12%). The wine presents an intensely drinkable style with soft fruit nuances of cherry, spice, grilled herb and leather. The integration of those aromas is absolutely seamless. In the mouth, Le Serra Nuove is soft, lush and beautifully persistent. " - The Wine Advocate

There is striking purity to the aromas and flavors, along with plenty of tension and enough energy to reward cellaring." - Antonio Galloni

Gaja Barbaresco

"The Gaja 2013 Barbaresco is a toned and elegant wine with a very impactful and focused bouquet. Dark fruit nuances segue seamlessly to spice, grilled herb, tar, licorice and leather. In keeping with that trademark Gaja touch, those transitions feel polished, long and smooth. The pleasure factor is high on this wine, thanks to the robust concentration it offers and the beautifully velvety nature of its texture. Gaia Gaja tells me that she and her family are especially happy with the quality of tannins achieved in this vintage. They do indeed show a noticeable level of succulence and proverbial crunch.

Sassicaia

"The 2013 Sassicaia is a wine of grace and understatement. Silky, perfumed and medium in body, the 2013 is one of the most delicate young Sassicaias I can remember tasting. At times, the 2013 does not taste much like a wine from Bolgheri at all. That is not positive nor negative, but simply an observation. Scents of lavender, sage and menthol wrap around a core of blue/purplish fruit. There is good definition to the aromatics, but several recent bottles haven't been as impressive as barrel samples were last year." Antonio Galloni
