Cascina Nuova Barolo DOCG — 2018

The Wine Advocate
93 Points

“The 2018 Barolo Cascina Nuova is fine-tuned with plenty of wild berry, cassis, grilled herb and crushed stone. The aromas are quite classic for Nebbiolo, but what stands out here is the directness and freshness with which they are delivered. The tannins are tucked carefully inside the smooth, silky character of this elegant wine.”

Ravera Barolo DOCG — 2018

The Wine Advocate
94 Points

“The Elvio Cogno 2018 Barolo Ravera is becoming one of the most important wines in Novello, and it performs very nicely in this more challenging vintage. The wine shows small-berry detailing with rust and crushed stone at the back. There is a point of bitterness that accompanies the tannins of this full-bodied wine.”

Pietra Marina, Etna Bianco DOC Superiore — 2017

Vinous
95 Points

“The 2017 Etna Bianco Superiore Pietra Marina makes itself known with a beguiling bouquet that blends crushed oyster shells with rosemary, young apricot and hints of smoke. It’s deeply textural and elegant in feel, with ripe pit fruits that cascade across a core of zesty acids, as nuances of green citrus pinch at the cheeks. This leaves the palate buzzing with residual energy; fresh melon tones linger and are framed by a coating of salty minerality. This is top-shelf Etna Bianco by every scope of the imagination.”

Serra della Contessa Particella, No.587, Etna Rosso DOC Riserva — 2016

Vinous
95 Points

“This is dark and savory in the glass, grumbling up with notes of crushed rocks and ash that evolve further to reveal musky black currants, hints of licorice and dried violets. This is velvety-smooth, yet not weighty in feel. Instead, the 2016 seems to glide effortlessly across the palate, yet what it leaves behind is a saturation of primary fruit and mineral tones, as well as silky tannins that penetrate deeply. The Serra della Contessa finishes structured yet long and unexpectedly fresh, with balsam herbs and a touch of salted licorice that slowly fades. This Etna Rosso is a powerhouse.”

Noblesse Brut Metodo Classico — 2018

Vinous
92 Points

“The 2018 Brut Carricante Noblesse is smoky yet perfumed, with dusty dried flowers giving way to crushed green apple and hints of ground ginger. This washes across the palate with crystalline bubbles and mineral-tinged orchard fruits under an air of pretty inner florals. The 2018 finishes with a salty flourish, creating a distinctly savory impression, as herbal tones and hints of Granny Smith slowly fade. I must admit that I truly love the balance currently on display. Well done.”

Nerello Cappuccio Terre Siciliane IGT Rosso — 2019

Vinous
92 Points

“The 2019 Nerello Cappuccio displays a purple hue in the glass, along with a pepper-tinged bouquet of red currants, dried flowers and hints of exotic spice. Its textures are deep and silky, soothing the palate with a wave of ripe red and black fruits that gain an energetic thrust through a core of zesty acidity. The 2019 finishes wickedly fresh with a reverberation of mouthwatering tension and flourish of inner sweetness to balance. This varietal Nerello Cappuccio is an absolute joy to taste."

Rovittello Particella No. 341, Etna Rosso DOC Riserva — 2016

Vinous
91+ Points

“The 2016 Etna Rosso Rovittello Particella No. 341 Riserva opens slowly in the glass, at first backward, dusty and dark, with only nuances of dried roses to be found. Swirling adds further hints of red currant, shaved cedar and sage, yet it doesn’t fully unlock what’s beneath this youthful exterior. It washes across the palate with a more energetic expression; at first, it is silky in feel, yet has a salty mineral core and zesty acids that add grip as potent red berry fruits penetrate deeply."

Nero D’Avola Vrucara Prephylloxera Sicilia DOC — 2017

Vinous
92 Points

“The 2017 Nero d'Avola Vrucara is intense, with a burst of medicinal black cherries, sweet exotic spices, balsam herbs and Baker’s chocolate creating its dark and exotic bouquet. This washes across the palate in silky textural waves, delivering ripe black fruits and balsamic tones, as nuances of tobacco form toward the close. A coating of tannins remains, yet they’re sweet and round, which helps to frame the otherwise hedonistic expression within without slowing the Vrucara’s momentum."

Anas-Cëtta Nascetta di Novello Langhe DOC — 2020

Vinous
92 points

"The 2020 Anas-Cëtta is a brisk, vibrant white. Pear, green apple, mint, sage almond, crushed rocks and white pepper lend notable aromatic brilliance. The move towards a more chiseled style has paid off big-time."

Brunello di Montalcino DOCG — 2016

Wine Enthusiast
98 points

“Aromas of rose petal, dark spice, woodland berries and camphor form the nose on this fragrant, elegant wine. Loaded with finesse, the linear, savory palate features red cherry, orange zest, star anise and black tea alongside tightly wound, fine-grained tannins. Bright acidity keeps it impeccably balanced. It's still youthfully austere, with fantastic aging potential.”

Royal Tokaji
Szt. Tamás, 6 Puttonyos, Tokaj — 2017

Wine Enthusiast
99 points

This wine comes from one of Tokaji's most famous vineyards. It is light amber in color with heady aromas of honeysuckle, freesia, beeswax and honey. It has pleasant heft on the palate and there are intense flavors of tinned peach, clover honey and apricot conserves. It is a well-made and well-balanced wine that ends on a sweet note and makes you want to go in for another and another, sip.

Brunello di Montalcino DOCG — 2016

Wine Spectator
97 Points

“This features a well of blackberry and black cherry flavors, along with iron, licorice and fresh herb aromas and flavors. The dense tannins are easily matched by the concentrated flavors, and this shows fine potential, despite the compact finish now.”

Bergström Vineyard Pinot Noir, Dundee Hills — 2020

Vinous
95 points

Brilliant ruby. Hugely perfumed raspberry, boysenberry, fruitcake, floral oil and exotic spice scents show fine delineation and building minerality. Stains the palate with sappy red and blue preserve, candied rose, cola and five-spice powder flavors that smoothly blend depth and energy and betray no rough edges. Polished tannins add shape to an extremely long, spicy finish that echoes the floral and blue fruit notes.

Gregory Ranch Vineyard Pinot Noir, Yamhill-Carlton — 2019

Vinous
93 points

Dark, bright-rimmed red. Spice- and earth-tinged red and blue fruit scents show a suave floral overtone. Youthfully taut bitter cherry, blueberry and spice cake flavors flesh out and take a sweeter turn through the back half. Finishes very long and precise, with gently gripping tannins and a resonating cherry flourish.

Glistening ruby. Intense red and blue fruit, floral and spice notes on the incisive nose, along with hints of cola and smoky minerals. Juicy and precise in the mouth, offering sappy raspberry, boysenberry and floral pastille flavors and a bright, spicy top note. Smoothly plays power off delicacy and finishes long and silky, with polished tannins framing repeating red fruit and floral notes.

Cumberland Reserve Pinot Noir — 2019

Vinous
93 points

Vivid ruby. Musky cherry and red currant aromas, along with hints of botanical herbs and allspice. Gently chewy and focused on the palate, offering bitter cherry, red berry, spice cake and licorice flavors that turn sweeter through the back half. Dusty tannins add shape and grip to the long, spicy finish, which leaves cherry pit and baking spice notes behind.

Brunello di Montalcino DOCG Riserva — 2015

The Wine Advocate
98+ points

"Contemplative and exceedingly nuanced in personality, with wild berry, underbrush, ferrous earth and candied orange peel, this has everything to look forward to in terms of its future evolution in the bottle. It displays a pretty ruby color that borders on garnet and polished copper. A silky, mid-weight palate is accented by beautifully managed and silky tannins (this aspect of the mouthfeel is extraordinary), bright freshness and long-lasting fruit momentum. The alcohol is a bit more powerful in this release, but the effect is supple and smooth nonetheless.”
