Il Colle 2014 Brunello di Montalcino

Exceptionally clean Sangiovese from Brunello. Vines are tended under organic measures, wine is fermented with native yeasts, and there is no barrique used in the cellar, only large barrels of Slovenian oak. On the nose, the wine shows deep aromas of violets, red cherry, strawberries, and just a touch of fresh earth. The palate conveys a more rustic expression than the nose, with tar, mint, white pepper, and red plum. High acid, with tannins that are felt more on the gums than on the tongue. Elegant and interesting in the same glass. Highly recommend this bottle. David Hatzopoulos

Lecci e Brocchi 2019 Toscano IGT Il Meticcio Rosato

According to the producer, this wine is dedicated to animals known as "meticcio," or "mixed breed" in English. The estate has a beloved horse named Tiberio that is a meticcio. However, most animals with this heritage are less fortunate, and often abandoned, so this rosato is made in their honor. The wine is also a meticcio, coming from Sangiovese, Malvasia Nera, Alicante, Foglia Tonda, Colorino, and Canaiolo Nera. In the glass, the wine is a pale shade of rose gold. The nose has a soft scent of candied cherry, freshly blossomed white and pink flowers, and crushed white stone. A subtle but very elegant nose. The palate is more assertive, with tart red cherry and lemon zest. The mouthfeel is broad, with a touch of richness that lasts just a hint longer than the length of a sip. Very refreshing.

Monte Bernardi 2015 Colli Della Toscana Centrale IGT Tzingana

This is the only Super Tuscan we carry in the store, and an anomaly within the character. 45% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon/Cabernet Franc, and 15% Petit Verdot. All estate grown fruit, picked by hand, from southern facing slopes. Natural Fermentation in steel, secondary fermentation in oak, with 18-24 months of aging in barrique and tonneaux before bottling. Not over-extracted or over-oaked, this is a brighter and fresher expression, with a beautiful mix of red and black fruit and ample acidity. Notes of dried herbs and hay round out the palate. Great now, this will only improve with time. Oskar Kostecki

Monte Bernardi 2018 Chianti Classico Retromarcia

Retromarcia means “to back up” or “to reverse” and is Michael Schmelzer’s reference to an old approach to Chianti that is hard to find today, focused on allowing the character of Sangiovese to show above everything else.  The wine is made from 100% Sangiovese composed of young vines planted on a mix of galestro and sandstone soils.  The grapes are fermented with native yeast on the skins for 2 weeks in stainless steel and then raised in a mixture of old barrels and unlined concrete tanks for 18 months before being bottled unfiltered. In the glass, the wine has a deep red center, with pale red edges. The nose is enticing, with wild red berries, stems and leaves, fragrant warm spices, and a hint of freshly cracked coconut. On the palate, the wine is plummy, with red and black stone fruit. There is a nuance of cocoa and a long minty finish. As a classic Chianti should be, the acidity is mouthwatering, warming up the palate for a range of food.

Sanguineto 2017 Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Sanguineto I & II

In the glass, the Sanguineto 2017 Vino Nobile is a dark cherry color. The nose is pronounced, full of plums, warm shrubby herbs, dense dark flowers, with a hint of sweet spice and cinnamon. The plummy fruit is very present on the palate as well, along with crushed black stones, and a touch of bitter herbs. The structure has a great edge of acidity, freshening the mouthfeel of rich, medium tannin. A great bottle - we at the store can't stop talking about it. David Hatzopoulos
