PSI-2287. 12 BAROLO, ELIO ALTARE
Parker 92/100. My notes: Well, this is an entirely different creature from the rest of the 2012 Barolos: full power and intensity. Unbelievably concentrated. a giant in its field. An essence. Well, very, very ripe too. Sur maturite. This guy must pick really late./ Palate is dry and tannic. Much more backward than nose. Goes with the territory here. An exception to the others. A wine for longer keeping. 94+/100.
How Many bottles/singles: 59.95 each

PSI-2288. 12 BAROLO SERRALUNGA D’ALBA, LUIGI BAUDANA

How Many bottles/singles: 42.99 each

PSI-2289. 12 BAROLO, BENI DI BATASIOLO
2010: Wine Enthusiast 93 - EDITORS’ CHOICE: ‘This opens with a beautiful Nebbiolo nose of red rose, red berry, earth and mineral. The elegant palate delivers bright, juicy, wild cherry and raspberry flavors layered with mineral, white pepper, clove and licorice. Firm but refined tannins and fresh acidity make this surprisingly approachable now, but it will be even better after 2016.’
How Many bottles/singles: 39.99 each

PSI-2290. 09 BAROLO PAJANA, DOMENICO CLERICO
Parker 94: ‘The 2009 Barolo Pajana also shows supple softness and immediate richness. I love the energy and the pure tension. There’s a unique brightness or crispness to the fruit that so perfectly balances out those emboldened layers of oak, spice and tobacco. The style is modern and muscular but all that strength is delivered in a silken glove. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2028. $95.’
How Many bottles/singles: 64.95 each

PSI-2291. 11 BAROLO, RENATO CORINO
Parker 92: ‘The lovely 2011 Barolo presents the clean style and precise integrity that distinguishes the wines of Renato Corino. This wine also delivers exceptional value that makes it even more irresistible. The bouquet shows ripe fruit tones of dark cherry and blackberry with delicate nuances of spice, leather and tar on the edges. You can taste the heat of the vintage thanks to candied fruit flavors, but the overall effect does not lack balance or dimension. In fact, the wine should grow in complexity as it continues to evolve. $44.’
How Many bottles/singles: 34.99 each

PSI-2292. 11 BAROLO LE CINQUE VIGNE, DAMILANO
Parker 92: ‘The 2011 Barolo Lecinquevigne is produced with fruit that is sourced from various points throughout the appellation. I highly enjoyed tasting this wine and I enthusiastically recommend it as a result, especially thanks to its affordable price tag. Barolo Lecinquevigne opens to bright cherry and blackberry aromas that are followed by delicate tones of spice, tar and licorice. The finish is long and smooth. $50.’

How Many bottles/singles: 49.99 each

PSI-2294. 11 BAROLO SERRALUNGA, MASSOLINO

How Many bottles/singles: 49.99 each

PSI-2295. 11 BAROLO, PODERI ODDERO
Wine Spectator 93: ‘This red is tightly wound, binding the cherry, strawberry, licorice and mentholated herb flavors with fine-grained tannins and lively acidity. All the elements are there, but this needs time to find equilibrium. Fine length. Best from 2018 through 2030. $48.’
How Many bottles/singles: 44.99 each

PSI-2296. 11 BAROLO, PIO CESARE
James Suckling 95; Parker 92+: ‘The 2011 Barolo offers a classic approach to Nebbiolo and has done so consistently for decades. Pio Cesare is a benchmark producer with a production philosophy that remains the same year after year, thus giving ample room to vintage variation. This handsome edition presents a dark fruit profile with black cherry and cassis. The wine evolves slowly in the glass to reveal tarry notes of licorice and light spice. Its delineated and focused approach is reinforced by its streamlined mouthfeel and delicate complexity.’
How Many bottles/singles: 62.95 each

PSI-2297. 12 BAROLO SERRALUNGA, LUIGI PIRA

How Many bottles/singles: 39.99 each

PSI-2298. 11 BAROLO MARCENASCO, RENATO RATTI
Wine Spectator 92: ‘This needs air to reveal a dense core of cherry, currant, tar and leather flavors, matched to a solid, tightly woven structure. The pointed tannins hold court on the finish for now, but sweet fruit and licorice accents persist. Best from 2017 through 2030. $50.’
How Many bottles/singles: 44.99 each

PSI-2299. 12 BAROLO PATRES, SAN SILVESTRO

Vinous 96; Wine & Spirits 96: ‘Enrico Scavino ages his Barolos in mostly used French barriques for ten months and one year in large casks. Rocche dell'Annunziata spends almost a year longer in barrel, allowing the wine's flavors to merge together in a harmonious entity. Scents of crushed rose petals and fresh cherries announce a wine that balances intensity and delicacy. Flavors of plum, licorice, tobacco and spice merge in the texture, woven seamlessly together by the wine's silky tannins and smooth acidity. The flavors remain integrated all the way through the long, fragrant finish. $190.’

PSI-2305. 11 BAROLO LA VILLA, ALDO E RICCARDO SEGHESIO
Wine Spectator 93: ‘Dense and firmly structured, providing a foil for the cherry, strawberry, floral and spice flavors. Balanced, but needs time for all the elements to integrate. Exhibits fine length, revealing sweet fruit in the aftertaste. Best from 2019 through 2035. $52.’

PSI-2307. 10 BAROLO, FRANCO SERRA
Wine & Spirits 92: ‘The Sperone family had a wine business in Milan when they purchased 75 acres of vineyard land in Piedmont in 1965. They developed the Franco Serra label out of the winery they built in Monferrato, to offer value-priced wines from a region better known for collectibles. This 2010 is a steal: A floral, red-fruited Barolo with classic undertones of truffles and tar. It’s long on generous black cherry flavor, hinting at fresh herbs as the tannins fill any space left by the fruit. Formidable in its tight structure if you choose to age it, this is already a lovely, rich pleasure if you decant the bottle now.’
How Many bottles/singles: 34.99 each

PSI-2308. 10 BAROLO GABUTTI, SORDO
Wine Enthusiast 95 - EDITORS’ CHOICE: ‘This structured Barolo is still closed but already displays its impressive Serralunga d’Alba pedigree. It delivers crushed black cherry flavors layered with licorice, black pepper, clove, alpine herbs and balsamic notes alongside assertive but noble tannins and brisk acidity. It’s well balanced but needs time to develop complexity. Drink 2025–2045. $55.’
How Many bottles/singles: 38.99 each

PSI-2309. 12 BAROLO ALBE, VAJRA
Fresh and sweet, honest and straight forward. Sweet fruit padding precludes toughness. I’m warming up to this Barolo vintage./ Oh, is the palate ever sweet and juicy. Loving this vintage. Can be drunk early, but is likely to go into a shell for a spell too and thereafter opening up full bouqueted. Fine tannin, good acid. What’s not to like?! 93+/100.
How Many bottles/singles: 39.99 each

PSI-2310. 11 BAROLO ALBE, VAJRA

PSI-2312. 11 BAROLO CASTIGLIONE, VIETTI
Parker 92: ‘The 2011 Barolo Castiglione is Vietti's proverbial bread-and-butter wine. It is made in larger volumes (the 2011 vintage saw 56,000 bottles produced) and it shows consistent quality that consumers have come to count on. Fruit is sourced from the greater Castiglione area. The nose is compact and impeccable with dark cherry and plum, backed by spice, licorice and anise seed. There's even a playful touch of bitter chocolate on the close. $80.’

Wine Enthusiast 93: ‘Scents of bright red berry, violet, rose, orange peel, leather and a balsamic note all mingle in the glass.

Drink 2016–2026. $47.’
How Many bottles/singles: 44.99 each

PSI-2318. 08 BARBARESCO ALBESANI, CANTINA DEL PINO
Parker 94: ‘Cantina del Pino’s 2008 Barbaresco Albesani shows the heights of pure elegance Nebbiolo is capable of. An exotic array of plums, black cherries, menthol and violets come to life as the Albesani shows off its pedigree. Silky, refined and polished, the Albesani is simply magnificent from the very first taste. The deep, resonant finish stayed with me for hours. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2028.’
How Many bottles/singles: 54.95 each

PSI-2319. 12 BARBARESCO TORRE, PRODUTTORI DEL BARBARESCO
2011: Parker 92: ‘The delicious 2011 Barbaresco is a very well-integrated and balanced wine that shows an impressive level of elegance. Soft oak spice is fused with red berry fruit and balsam herb. You feel some of the heat of the vintage in the ripeness of the fruit, but those qualities never subtract from the wine's overall harmony. Soft fruit flavors are woven between tight tannins and long persistence.’

PSI-2320. 11 BARBARESCO RISERVA OVELLO, PRODUTTORI DEL BARBARESCO
Wine Spectator 93: ‘A peppery, spicy style, this displays cherry, eucalyptus, tar and black pepper aromas and flavors. Firmly tannic, yet with a core of concentrated sweet fruit, tobacco and tea accents on the lingering finish. Best from 2019 through 2033. $59.’

2011: Wine & Spirits 90 - BEST BUY: ‘As compelling a bargain as Serra’s 2010 Barolo, this is a floral Barbaresco with brisk fruit and barbs of tannins. It contrasts the brightness and shadows of a forest in berry scents and mushroom undertones. There’s a touch of candied-cherry sweetness in the cool, earthy finish. Ready to pour with roast beef, or roast duck with cherries.’

Parker 93+: ‘The 2008 Chianti Classico Riserva Rancia is one of the more slender wines in this line up, in keeping with the personality of the vintage. That is not a bad thing for readers who are cellaring some of the bigger, richer vintages that may take longer to mature. Silky tannins frame a core of black cherries, plums, licorice and tobacco through to the vibrant finish. The 2008 speaks of textural finesse and silkiness first and foremost.

PSI-2526. 11 BRUNELLO DI MONTALCINO, MAESTRO DI ANTICHI CASTELLI
What a revealing vintage 2011 is for Italy’s top red wines, wines that at age five are demonstrating the softness and bottle bouquet qualities that often take two to three times longer to coax forth. Traditional in winemaking approach, this brunello has had 42 months’ aging in barriques, yet it’s not in the least dried out and woody. Instead, it features deep, dark, and sweet fruit, so approachable and appealing that one could be coaxed to call it ‘modern’.

Its flavors cascade across the palate, with candied apricot, brown sugar, melted butter, smoked almonds and creamy butterscotch balanced by bitter orange, quinine and green herbs. While the wine is glycerin-smooth and polished, bright acidity adds tension and keeps it from edging over the line into decadence. Skip the biscotti and pair this with salty blue cheese. $40.’

Parker 92: ‘Made with Trebbiano, Malvasia and Sangiovese, the 2005 Vin Santo del Chianti Classico opens to a brilliant amber color and thick viscosity that hugs to the rim of the glass. Oak-driven tones of vanilla and caramel are immediately apparent, but quickly followed by candied fruit, butterscotch and orange peel. Clusters undergo a natural drying process on mats until February of the following year. The must is transferred to sealed oak casks containing the ‘mother,’ or gelatinous remains from previous vintages.’

PSI-2543. 06 VIN SANTO DEL CHIANTI CLASSICO, TENUTA ISOLE E OLENA half bottle
Parker 96: ‘The 2006 Vin Santo del Chianti Classico is a divine dessert wine that boasts the best of this labor-intensive winemaking tradition. Vintners who make Vin Santo will always tell you that they do so for passion. The quantities are so small and the commercial margins so thin, pure passion is the only reason someone would embark on this kind of project. Happily for us wine lovers, people like Paolo De Marchi have that passion. His Vin Santo is one of the best available today. The wine is impeccable and beautiful inside and out. Caramel, maple syrup, roasted pine nut and dried apricot emerge from the bouquet. I find this wine to be simply irresistible for those with a sweet tooth and those without.’

PSI-2587. 13 AGLIANICO DEL VULTURE TITOLO, ELENA FUCCI
2012: Parker 94: ‘Elena Fucci's latest release is the 2012 Aglianico del Vulture Titolo. The wine shines bright with primary aromas of dark fruit, herb, oak spice and dark volcanic tones of crushed granite and smoke. Given the proven track record of this wine, I'd expect this vintage to age for 15 to 20 years without a hitch. The 2012 vintage was only slightly warmer than average and those ripe fruit flavors do a lot to round out and soften the firm tannic backbone of the wine. There's a notable point of acidity that helps the wine to achieve an impressive sense of balance. Elena Fucci has another successful edition of Titolo for us to enjoy over the years to come. $50.’ My notes: Lots of elegance as well as intensity. Beautiful./ Such fruit beauty, purity.

PSI-2597. 13 ETNA ROSSO BARBAZZALE, COTTANERA
Wine & Spirits 92 - BEST BUY: ‘The Cambria brothers, Guglielmo and Enzo, started planting vines at their family’s hazelnut orchard in the early 1990s. Originally focused on international varieties, they shifted to local grapes, including the nerello mascalese (80 percent) and nerello cappuccio (20 percent) that make up this blend. Now run by Enzo and the next generation, Cottanera produced a remarkable 2013, plump with the brisk red fruit of volcanic earth. It’s clean, light and graciously simple, an evocative young red to pair with squab stuffed with apricots.’
