Wine Advocate 96 points. This is a baritone beauty. The 2015 Montefalco Sagrantino 25 Anni is a darkly extracted and thick expression with inky-black fruit aromas that are followed by finer accents of licorice, smoke and tar. The bouquet is deep and complex. There is dark spice here as well, but those spicy tones are mixed with balsam herb, barbecue smoke and teriyaki. The wine is full-bodied and layered, with rich textural fiber. This vintage will award those who wait. ML Oct 2019.

SG$39.00

For centuries now, the beautiful red grapes of the Barbera varietal have been grown in Italy, where they are prized for their unusual high acid content and low tannins, brought about by their thin skins. The Barbera grape varietal thrives in warmer climates, and has had some success overseas in the new world, where its strongly aromatic flavors of intense hedgerow fruits make it a favorite with wineries and wine drinkers looking for a grape which offers plenty of interesting characteristics. Interestingly, the differences between young and aged wines made from this varietal are quite significant, with younger bottles holding a plethora of...

Wine Spectator 93 points. Jancis Robinson 17.5/20. Dosed with quite generous new oak scent on the nose, which I'd imagine might rile some Barolo fans - but the quality of flavour is excellent, and there is plenty of fruit, spice and structure to match. Richard Hemming MW. Barolo has ancient origins. Documents testify to the growing of Nebbiolo in the Visette area as long ago as the XII century, when the Saracen invasions advanced inland into Piedmont from the Ligurian coast. These influences led to the old centre of the village of Monforte being named “Saracca”. The name Visette itself comes from the local dialect word for the vine,...

Awarded Gold Medal and "People's Crown" , voted by readers of Vini Buoni d'Italia. Raffaella Bissoni is a remarkable woman whom we first met in 2015. We had been told by the conoscenti that she has been leading a quiet revolution in Romagna to reinstate the region as an internationally reknowned producer of sangiovese. Given that Tuscany has long held the spotlight for all sangiovese wines we were both curious and skeptical. That was until we tried her wines. They are outstanding and represent excellent value. The winery now exports to 10 countries, with the USA being the largest taker. Bissoni's wine-making philosophy is quite plain and...

It’s succulent, juicy, aromatic in the mouth and dusted with fine grained tannin, and with that, a pleasant sense of autumnal decay, acidity fresh and settled, some orange peel, and again, a long slightly savoury tea laced finish.

Decanter 95 points. James Suckling 93 points. "Elevation and limestone soils make Lazzarito one of Serralunga's finest and most long-lived sites. Aromatic Intensity and vigorous red fruit on the nose. Firm, concentrated and taut - discreet power, though the tannins are not too dominant. Tightly wound and youthful, this is harmonious and surprisingly forward but very well balanced and long, thanks to its fine acidity. Drink 2021-2035 " Decanter 95 points. The Barolo Lazzarito of Casa E. of Mirafiore was born in the vineyards located in Lazzarito, in one of the most important cru of the municipality of Serralunga d'Alba. It is produced...

Wine Enthusiast 96 points. This is without a doubt the most prestigious Mirafiore vineyard. The grapes that thrive here in the tailor-made harmony of terroir and climatic conditions are the perfect basis for a world-class Barolo of great structure and long life. The soil is on a slope (350-400 m above sea level) in a south / south-west facing position and is of sedimentary marine origin (Miocene-Helvetic era) with a high content of gray-white marl limestone. Muscular start with a lot of ripe, but powerful tannins. The abundance of aromas is overwhelming even in its youth. Bay bush, nutmeg, cedar wood, wild berry compote, liquorice, tobacco,...

Wine enthusiast 94 points, Wine Advocate 93 points. The 2013 Barolo Paiagallo is a very beautiful wine that shows inner harmony and grace in this slightly cooler vintage. The wine opens to a dark garnet color with bright ruby highlights. The bouquet emits candied fruit, cherry cola, moist earth and grilled herb. The finish is silky and long, and there is a touch of sweet fruit that keeps the wine from feeling too dry or austere.ML Sep 2017.

WA 94. The Neri family has created a classic expression of Sangiovese from a classic vintage, while remaining faithful to the house style. In a nutshell, these wines always tend to offer dark plum, clove and fig confit over the tiny berry and blue flower aromas you get from the traditionalists. That said, this Brunello needs ample time to open, and I suggest you splash it into the decanter. The Casanova di Neri 2015 Brunello di Montalcino (this is the one with the white label) stays safely within your expectation of the vintage with its variety-driven aromas of wild berry, licorice, blue flower and balsam herb. This wine sees fruit sourced...

James Suckling 99 points. The purity of fruit in this wine really strikes you with black cherries, combined with sage, lavender and rosemary. Extremely aromatic. Full-bodied, yet so tight and polished with incredible tannin structure that gives the wine an endless mouth feel of caressing tannins, acidity and fruit. There’s a fabulous saltiness and oyster-shell undertone to the fruit. Unique. Drinkable already, but this year there’s the structure to last decades Review date: December 2019 Wine Advocate 98+.

In a word: monumental." Wine Advocate 96+ points. The Castellare di Castellina 2016 I Sodi di S. Niccolò is 85% Sangioveto (otherwise known as Sangiovese) and 15% Malvasia Nera. I tasted number 9,949 out of 29,230 bottles filled in January 2020. This is a true beauty and a wine that makes a lasting impact.

James Suckling 95 points. Vinous Media 95 points. Poggio ai Merli is a great Tuscan red wine made from Merlot grapes only, aged in new barriques for 30 months. The bouquet is broad, intense and balsamic, with notes of wild berries and dark spices. On the palate it is robust, warm, soft and enveloping, as only the best Supertuscans can be.

Wine Spectator 93 points. Luca Maroni 92 points. Veronelli 3 Stars. WA 91. Here's a sassy and spicy expression of Merlot. The 2014 Poggio Ai Merli is a tight and slightly nervous wine from a cool vintage. The otherwise mellow Merlot grape shows tart aromas of red fruit and cherry with spice, tobacco and white chocolate. The wine is fermented in stainless steel and aged in new French barrique. Only 3,000 bottles are produced. Poggio ai Merli performs very well in cooler vintages (2013 is a case point). But the 2014 vintage offers a lower textural threshold and moderate persistence. ML Dec 2016. #poggio
