ANTINORI GUADO AL TASSO BOLGHERI BORDEAUX RED BLEND’13 – A bit reticent, with black cherry, black currant and herb flavors married to a supple texture and fine-grained tannins.

ARCANUM “VALADORNA”’09  –  Brimming with sweet cherry, raspberry, mushroom, anise and spice flavors, this is balanced and fresh, with a long, energetic aftertaste of dried fruit, spice and tea. Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon.”………154.99

MONTEPELOSO A QUO’16  –  “Fresh violets, lavender, citrus and fresh herbs are the main attraction on the nose. Full body, grainy tannins, some lovely, crunchy acidity and a salty finish. A blend of montepulciano, sangiovese, cabernet sauvignon, marselan, and alicante bouschet.”…………43.99 

PIANTAFERO CHIANTI SANGIOVESE’16………………34.99

RENZO MASI ERTA E. CHINA RED BLEND’16 – “Another big and ripe, Tuscan red that has plenty of moderately dry tannins, but lacks a bit of elegance and clear contours at the solid finish.”…………….37.99

RENZO MASI CONTRAPASSO’15 – “Comprised of 50% syrah and 50% sangiovese grapes, this wine is made in a  traditional Tuscan winemaking method called con governo.  This method is used with the syrah grapes. The sangiovese grades are made in the traditional way. Each component is vinified separately and then blended prior to bottling. On the nose of Contrappasso are dark fruit notes of blackberry and raspberry, the producers say. On the palate, the wine is full, smooth and velvety, with a hint of mineral notes. The finish contains notes of ripe blueberry pie filling.”…………….35.99

TENUTA LUCE “LUCENTE” SANGIOVESE BLEND’16 – “This blend of Merlot and Sangiovese opens with aromas of dark-skinned berry, violet, mocha and Mediterranean brush. The savory palate offers juicy Marasca cherry, star anise and a hint of espresso alongside velvety polished tannins.”……………54.99

TENUTA VITANZA “ANDRETTA”  BRUNELLO DE MONTALCINO “RISERVA”’12  – The 2012 Andretta Brunello di Montalcino is made by Tenuta Vitanza, and is a bit more modern in style than the Traditional Brunello from the estate. This is packed with aromas and flavors of dark cherries, blackberries, vanilla, baking spices, toast and hints of licorice all coming together in the glass. Full-bodied and well-structured with around, velvety texture which leads into a long, chewy finish. This is already accessible and will drink beautifully upon release and with some additional bottle age.”……45.99

VOLPAIA CHIANTI CLASSICO SANGIOVESE’17 – “Pure and focused, featuring black cherry and black currant fruit, accented by mineral, earth and subtle wild herb elements. Elegant and intense, with a firm, extended finish.”…….49.99
