2016 Arneis Blange Ceretto

Crisp and fresh this wine has a slight spritz with scents of honeysuckle. On the palate pear and apple flavors rise with a hint of almond . Finishes with clean minerality, lively acidity and slight lingering nutty flavors

2017 Vermentino di Sardegna IS DOC Argiolas

Shows a ripe, almost tropical-fruit profile that reflects longer ripening on the vine. Aromas and flavors of fully ripe apricots and peaches are accented by notes of melon, almond, and honey. Bright acidity provides succulence on the palate to an otherwise richer expression of Vermentino.

2015 Chianti Classico Riserva DOCG Il Poggiale Castellare

Dark and inky, this is holding back for now, with blackberry, plum, rosemary, leather and tar flavors. A beam of juicy fruit is buoyed by the vivid acidity, while the tannins emerge on the long aftertaste."

2013 Brunello di Montalcino Altesino

An intense perfume of juniper, bay laurel, sage, rose and berry marks this silky red. The structure is there, yet superb balance and refined tannins help this retain elegance through the long finish. Almost ethereal in its presence.

2010 Barbaresco Albesani Santo Stefano Castello di Nieve

Freshly cut flowers, rose petals, red berries, licorice, mint and spices flesh out in the 2010 Barbaresco Albesani Santo Stefano. With time in the glass, the 2010 blossoms beautifully. Intensely perfumed and layered, the 2010 boasts gorgeous inner sweetness and fabulous balance. Today the 2010 is firing on all cylinders. The pedigree of this great site comes through in spades.

2012 Barbaresco Rabaja Cortese

I am deeply impressed by Giuseppe Cortese's 2012 Barbaresco Rabajà. Son Pier Carlo is in charge of the estate today and has continued his father's winemaking legacy. This is a delicate and feminine wine that boasts bright and pristine intensity. The bouquet incorporates floral elements of violet and pressed rose. It fuses those subdued characteristics with balanced tones of red fruit, herb, licorice and spice. This Barbaresco sees a traditional aging regime of 22 months in Slovenian oak. This is a wine of enormous beauty. Monica Larner Wine Advocate
