How Many bottles/singles: 49.99 each

PSI-2488. 13 BAROLO, PIO CESARE
2011: 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: 64.95 each

PSI-2489. 14 BAROLO SERRALUNGA, LUIGI PIRA

How Many bottles/singles: 39.99 each

PSI-2490. 13 BAROLO MARCENASCO, RENATO RATTI

Focused and elegantly structured, the delicious palate doles out ripe Marasca cherry, raspberry compote, cinnamon, sage and white pepper, while refined tannins and bright acidity provide supple support and impeccable balance. Drink 2023 -- 2033.'
How Many bottles/singles: 49.99 each

PSI-2491. 14 BAROLO, PAOLO SCAVINO
Wine Enthusiast 93: 'Aromas of dark-skinned berry, French oak and a balsamic note emerge from the glass. The dense palate offers vanilla, roasted coffee bean, dried black cherry and oak-driven spice alongside assertive, rather astringent tannins. Drink after 2022. $45.'

2011: Parker 92; Wine Spectator 92: 'All the components are in the right place in this cherry- and strawberry-flavored red, which needs time to integrate.

How Many bottles/singles: 57.95 each

PSI-2493. 10 BAROLO ROCCHE DELL' ANNUNZIATA, PAOLO SCAVINO
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.'
How Many bottles/singles: 149.95 each

PSI-2494. 13 BAROLO, FRANCO SERRA
2010: 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-2495. 12 BAROLO GABUTTI, AZ. AGR. SORDO
Wine Spectator 95 - HIGHLY RECOMMENDED: 'Iron, graphite and sanguine aromas introduce this stern, sinewy red, backed by cherry, strawberry, floral and tobacco flavors. Beautifully balanced and long. Though firm, this remains fresh and focused on the aftertaste. Best from 2023 through 2045. $65.'

Beautiful thing./ Really sweet, dark cherry fruit. Definitely Vajra silky and stylish. Not at all an old fashioned type. Plenty of power and structure too.

How Many bottles/singles: 39.99 each

PSI-2497. 13 BAROLO RAVERA, VAJRA
Wine Spectator 95; Vinous 95+: 'The 2013 Barolo Ravera is tightly wound and austere, with tons of its energy in reserve. Lavender, violet, plum, spice and menthol are beautifully delineated throughout. In some vintages Ravera is explosive, but the 2013 is very much closed in on itself. Attractive scents of rose petal, mint, sweet red berries and chalk infuse the taut, salivating finish. My instincts say this is going to be a very special wine one day. 2020-2033. $78.
How Many bottles/singles: 69.95 each

PSI-2498. 13 BAROLO CASTIGLIONE, VIETTI
Parker 93+: 'The 2013 Barolo Castiglione is a terrific success story. This is the estate's bread and butter Barolo. Fruit is sourced throughout the Castiglione Falletto township. The wine is consistent and steady, offering amazing value and quality with each new release. The nose is generous and full. It imparts fresh fruit and dark cherry aromas with tar, smoke and licorice at the back. Evident structure gives the wine a firm backbone and will carry it through the next decade of cellar aging. Drink 2019-2030.'
How Many bottles/singles: 49.99 each

PSI-2499. 12 BARBARESCO RISERVA, CANCELLO DEL BARONE
24 months in oak barrels. Oh, good! A wonderful surprise. Usually low-priced Barbarescos are old time, dry, stodgy, fruitless, and tannic. And this one's a riserva even! Not at all dried out in barrel. There's bright nebbiolo cherry, and the barrel time has not rendered it dry and woody but rather enriched./ Balanced, sweet, and maturing evenly. Astonishing. Pliable, aiming to please. They‛re never like this. Delicious fruit. Nebbiolo all over the place. Cherry, tar, licorice, rose. Unbelievable. A wow deal! 95/100.
How Many bottles/singles: 23.99 each

PSI-2500. 11 BARBARESCO REYNA, MICHELE CHIARLO
Wine Enthusiast 93: 'Scents of bright red berry, violet, rose, orange peel, leather and a balsamic note all mingle in the glass. The smooth, savory palate delivers ripe black cherry, black raspberry, freshly ground white pepper, cinnamon and licorice alongside firm but polished tannins. It's nicely balanced and very refined.

PSI-2501. 12 BARBARESCO, CANTINA DEL NEBBIOLO
2011: Wine Enthusiast 93: 'Red rose, balsamic herbs, red berry and baking spice aromas jump out of the glass.

Drink 2015 through 2021. $32.'
How Many bottles/singles: 28.99 each

PSI-2502. 12 BARBARESCO SERRA, PAITIN
Wine Spectator 92: 'A bright, juicy red, exhibiting cherry, raspberry, licorice, spice and floral flavors. Becomes more tannic, lingering on the moderately long finish. Decant now or cellar for two to three years. Best from 2018 through 2030. $42.'
How Many bottles/singles: 38.99 each

PSI-2503. 13 BARBARESCO, CANTINA DEL PINO
Vinous 93; Wine Spectator 93: ‛Ripe and round, this red reveals cherry, earth, underbrush and tobacco aromas and flavors. Should find equilibrium once all the elements come together. The excellent aftertaste persists with fruit, mineral and tobacco accents. Best from 2020 through 2033. $44.‛

How Many bottles/singles: 42.99 each

PSI-2506. 12 BARBARESCO ALBESANI, CANTINA DEL PINO
Parker 93: 'The 2012 Barbaresco Albesani follows in the feminine and graceful style that is so unique to the wines of Cantina del Pino. Dark fruit and wild cherry are followed by light shadings of spice, tobacco and licorice. The wine shows very good integration and balance. That seamless integration follows through to the palate, thanks also to the wine's long persistence. 2017-2028.'

How Many bottles/singles: 23.99 each

PSI-2517. 14 LANGHE NEBBIOLO PERBACCO, VIETTI
Parker 91: 'The Vietti winery has 15 vineyard crus at its disposal now. This allows for enormous flexibility in winemaking. The 2014 Langhe Nebbiolo Perbacco is an easy-drinking but sophisticated Nebbiolo that could pass for a base Barolo. This wine sees fruit sourced from Fiasco, Bussia, Fossati, Bricco delle Viole and Ravera di Monteforte. The bouquet delivers great intensity with an authentic display of dark fruit, spice and licorice. Now-2023.'

PSI-2703. 15 CHIANTI CLASSICO RISERVA BERARDENGA, FATTORIA DI FELSINA
2013: Wine & Spirits 92: ‛Felsina owns some 220 vineyard acres near Castelnuovo Berardenga at Chianti Classico's southern edge. This wine is selected from parcels of sangiovese at varying elevations, giving a balanced wine with loads of texture, spice and ripeness. It opens on a cool menthol note, with black cherry flavors immersed in a melange of crunchy herbs and vibrant spices. Notes of orange peel, dried cherry and roasted mushroom emerge after a few hours, on the way to a long and lively finish. It's a generous Riserva, built for something robust like braised beef.‛

PSI-2704. 13 CHIANTI CLASSICO RISERVA RANCIA, FATTORIA DI FELSINA
Parker 95: 'Here is another highlight of the vintage. The 2013 Chianti Classico Riserva Rancia is a dark, moody and sophisticated wine. It does not reveal itself immediately or in any obvious way. Instead, it doses out its intensity in careful measurements. The whole performance is seductive to say the least. That slow momentum leads to dark cherry with spice, grilled herb, wet earth and dried rose. Felsina's Riserva Rancia is a very elegant wine, both on the nose and in the mouth. Drink 2018-2035.'

PSI-2709. 14 CHIANTI CLASSICO RISERVA IL GRIGIO, SAN FELICE
Parker 91: 'This is a dark and deeply saturated wine with a robust and brooding personality. The 2014 Chianti Classico Riserva Il Grigio showcases the more muscular and robust characteristics that are most often associated with the Castelnuovo Berardenga subzone. San Felice has done an excellent job in terms of selecting the best fruit in what is generally seen as a very difficult vintage in this part of the world. The mouthfeel is slightly more streamlined compared to warmer vintages and perhaps the acidity is a touch higher. But overall, the wine stays true to its ambitions and promises. Drink now-2027.'

James Suckling 94; Vinous 93: 'A deep, plush wine, the 2009 Syrah Il Bosco needs time to develop the breadth of its aromas and flavors, but it is nevertheless striking today.

PSI-2722. 13 VINO NOBILE DI MONTEPULCIANO, FATTORIA DEL CERRO
Vinous 90: ‛The 2013 Vino Nobile di Montepulciano offers good intensity while retaining a mid-weight sense of structure. Sweet black cherry, plum, tobacco, licorice and rose petal notes are pushed forward. Some of the wine's initial intensity tapers off on the finish, but that is a relatively small critique for a wine that delivers so much pleasure. Hints of smoke, spice, dried herbs and leather add attractive savory undertones to the dark, muscular finish. I would give the 2013 6-12 months to soften a bit further. Drink 2017-2021.‛

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.

Vinous 90: 'Bright red. Rich and almost sweet red fruit and spices on the nose and palate. Sweet and creamy on entry, then slightly tough with noteworthy tannic bite, but there's enough fruit lurking beneath the tannic cloak that I think all this really needs is a little time in the cellar/bottle. Very serious Carignano wine that eschews the easy sweetness and softness typical of many wines made with this variety providing instead something more interesting, bigger and more structured than usual. 2018-2022.'

PSI-2829. 17 SANTORINI ASSYRTIKO, SANTO
Wine & Spirits 93: ‘This vintage marked the 70th anniversary of this cooperative winery. By picking early and relying on fruit from high-altitude vineyards, winemaker Nikos Varvarigos worked the warmth of the vintage into a powerful, impressive Santorini. It’s nearly tropically ripe, juicy peach and apricot flavors hinting at mango, even as the island’s stony character comes through. It ends firm and clean, leaving behind the scent of sea air.’
How Many bottles/singles: 21.99 each

PSI-2830. 16 SANTORINI ASSYRTIKO, DOMAINE SIGALAS
Parker 95: 'The 2016 Assyrtiko is unoaked and comes in at 14% alcohol. One of the island's benchmarks, this is always in fine form these day -- and always rather hard to evaluate when it is young. Deceptively, this bottling doesn't seem intimidating on first taste, but it always hides many layers. I tend to decant them or taste them again the next day when they are young. Otherwise, you tend to miss too much. Wonderfully elegant and finishing with a salty nuance, this shows impeccable balance. Its best feature is the lingering and intense finish, with plenty of tension and grip. It has far more power than it seems on a casual sip and that power doesn't go away as the wine airs and warms. I tried it the next day, in fact, and it put on weight, absorbed the salt and showed even more power. Two days later, it still preened in its power and precision, fresh as a daisy and wholly unevolved. (The salt was back, too.) The gripping finish that coated the palate was simply impressive. This is another beauty from Sigalas, something that has a lot of upside potential still. Granting that I do not have them side by side, this might even be superior to the 2015. It's hard to overlook the superlative combination of concentration and intensity. If nothing else, it is a worthy competitor to the 2015 and fully its equal. While I am leaning up on it today, it is all about the potential as not many whites are this tightly wound. Try this again at the beginning summer 2019, and you will no doubt have a better experience. You can dive in now, if you insist, but I suspect this may not be fully expressive until 2020 or so. It should also age effortlessly, but let's start here and take the rest in stages. I won't be shocked if handles 20 years or more well, but let's be conservative for the moment. 2017-2029. $30.'

Well, this has a lot fresher base wine than the Crete Retsina, and more resinous personality too. Not so much pine pitch as bayleaf, bay rum./ Less like evergreen than herbs. Well, maybe some fitzer; certainly not pine. So it's different, not classic. Expressive though. 89/100.
