    Gravner Ribolla Venezia Giulia 2009 White wine | 750 ml Italy , Friuli-Venezia Giulia
    $116.25
    Not availableOnline Not availableIn store
    “The 2009 Ribolla exhibits the same, golden copper color here that Gravner achieves so nicely, although the hue is a touch lighter in these younger vintages. This one happens to be more expressive and generous, with a looser textural fiber and thickness in the mouth. At the back, the wine is dry and amply structured. The finish is just as dry and macerated. I've yet to find a Gravner white that I didn't like, but I still struggle to come up with the perfect pairing for these thick, copper-colored Ribollas. I'd experiment with different cheese platters until I got it right. Or maybe even a swordfish steak for the lighter 2009? It's hard to say, but it will be fun to find out.”

    Emidio Pepe Pecorino 2016 White wine | 750 ml Italy , Abruzzi
    $120.50
    AvailableOnline Not availableIn store
    “Deep yellow, almost orange; the hot dry year really shows in this wine’s relatively dark color, despite no maceration on the skins. Mellow aromas and flavors of vanilla, lime and dried herbs. Finishes long and round, with very smooth nuances of orange oil and orchard fruit and strong salinity. Emidio Pepe’s Pecorino wines, a variety the Pepe family admits not having much experience with, are improving steadily year after year.”

    Ornellaia Bianco 2017 White wine | 750 ml Italy , Tuscany
    $249.25
    Not availableOnline Not availableIn store
    “Showing medium rich concentration and a creamy textural fiber, it reveals some of the weight that we associated with this hot and dry vintage. However, any trace of over-ripeness is mitigated by the cool soils that, in this case, consist of deep calcarious clay broken up by rocks at a breezy 80 to 100 meters above sea level. This consistency is perfect for locking in moisture even in drought vintages. The wine is fermented in oak, but no malolactic fermentation occurs, and the wine instead rests on the fine lees with frequent stirring. Orchard fruits and Cavaillon melon give the wine a sturdy center of gravity.”

    Anselmo Mendes Expressoes Alvarinho 2017 White wine | 750 ml Portugal , Vinho Verde
    $45.50
    Not availableOnline Not availableIn store
    “The 2017 Expressões is an Alvarinho aged for nine months in used French oak (light toast). It comes in at 13% alcohol, with under two grams of residual sugar and 6.7 grams of total acidity. Lovely, this handles its wood beautifully and shows off its gorgeous fruit. Ripe, succulent and delicious, it has the concentration and power to hold up well to foods. In fact, that is its highest and best use. This is not the simple-sipper type of Vinho Verde. It is full-bodied and simply coats the palate. Yet the fruit always shines through, and it is graceful as well.”

    Anselmo Mendes Curtimenta Alvarinho 2017 White wine | 750 ml Portugal , Vinho Verde
    $45.50
    Not availableOnline Not availableIn store
    “As it sits in the glass, the fruit rises up above the oak. The extra year in the bottle has allowed this to come together nicely. It presents as very full-bodied for this region, a big selling point. I might wish for a little more zest and intensity, though. Overall, this is relatively gentle yet still vigorous, beautiful to drink now. It does seem positioned to age very well, though. I don't think it's the best in the brand, but it is typically excellent, and this year is no slouch. This, by the way, is not a typical Vinho Verde—this needs a food pairing, and it can hold up to bigger foods. You've been warned.”

    Anselmo Mendes Parcela Única 2017 White wine | 750 ml Portugal , Vinho Verde
    $53.50
    Not availableOnline Not availableIn store
    “The 2017 Parcela Única is an Alvarinho aged for nine months in new French oak (light toast). It comes in at 13% alcohol, with less than two grams of residual sugar and 6.5 grams per liter of total acidity. Like Curtimenta this year, this shows off its wood initially, but it comes around very well, particularly the next day. Both can be hard to read when young but for different reasons—the power of Curtimenta and the wood on this. The more aggressive wood treatment tends to make this the harder to read of the two, but it looks very fine. It is notably creamier, though. Also ripe and full-bodied, it demonstrates that its fruit can and will rise above the wood. In fact, it pulls in the wood rapidly as it airs and warms. Then, it lingers beautifully on the finish, dry, serious and intriguing.”

    Raul Perez Ultreia La Cova de la Raposa 2016 Red wine | 750 ml Spain
    $71.50
    Not availableOnline Not availableIn store
    « There is only one barrel of the 2016 Ultreia Cova de la Raposa, a riper side of Valtuille, always full of aromatic herbs, very attractive in the nose, and a little wider in the palate than the other single-vineyard wines. They tend to harvest early to avoid any notes of over-ripeness in the wine. The palate revealed abundant tannins that provided a somehow powdery texture and a dry finish. With time in the glass it developed a faintly animal note, with hints of tempera paint, licorice and leather that might partly explain the dryness in the palate. »

    René Barbier & Sara Pérez Gratallops Partida Bellvisos Priorat 2013 Red wine | 750 ml Spain , Côte Méditerranéenne
    $92.75
    Not availableOnline Not availableIn store
    “They are keeping the red wines to sell them later, so the current vintage of the red is the 2013 Gratallops Vi de Vila Partida Bellvisos. It's a wine with lots of tension and comes from the first year with some rain after two year with no rain. 2013 is concentrated because yields were small and the wines are tight. They started using an 1,800-liter Stockinger vat, where they age this red (and the surplus is kept in demijohn), and the oaking is very subtle. This has a lot of character, great acidity and fine minerality, with a clean, very focused finish. It's still young but approachable and should develop nicely in bottle. Truly phenomenal.”

    Vega Sicilia Reserva Especial Unico Red wine | 750 ml Spain , Vallée du Duero
    $757.75
    Not availableOnline Not availableIn store
    “As I've seen in recent years, the non-vintage blend NV Único Reserva Especial 2019 Release contains younger wines than what the older releases used to be made up of. In this case, it's 2006, 2007 and 2009 and in fact contains wine from the current release of Único, so not much older. It's mostly Tinto Fino (aka Tempranillo) and some Cabernet Sauvignon. It had a slightly longer élevage in oak, as the blend was put in bottle in June 2015, at the same time as the 2009 Único; therefore, the 2006 and 2007 components were in oak for a longer time. It has a similar character to the 2009, perhaps a little more subtle and elegant but not really more complex, with some tannins and a medium-bodied palate.”

    “The 2016 Valtellina Superiore Il Pettirosso is a terrific choice for readers who want to explore the Ar.Pe.Pe. wines before delving into some of the more pricey bottlings. Dried autumn leaves, cedar, pipe tobacco, herbs and licorice are some of the many notes that grace this wonderfully expressive, super-classic Valtellina Nebbiolo. Aging in cask brings out the nuances of these old vines so well. The transparency of Nebbiolo comes through beautifully.”

    " Il Marroneto's 2014 Brunello di Montalcino is thin and streamlined in terms of appearance. Indeed, this is one of the lightest and most luminous red wines I have seen from Montalcino in recent memory. You might mistake it for a Pinot Noir when regarded from afar. It shines with radiant ruby and garnet hues. In terms of bouquet, this Brunello emits steady aromas of wild berry, cassis, toasted almond and dried garden rose. That floral impact is the wine's most endearing characteristic. However, the wine does lose momentum in terms of mouthfeel because the finish is short and abrupt. The wine needs a year or two to flesh out."

    « There is no overstating the sheer power and richness of this iconic vintage of Italy's groundbreaking Merlot. Despite that considerable mass, this Masseto remains delicate and graceful. You gain better perspective as the wine opens in the glass and reveals deeper layers that were not immediately apparent on first nose: dark fruit, spice, sweet tobacco and black cherry. There is great tightness and laser focus to the fruit. I tasted the 2016 and 2015 vintages together for comparison when I scored this wine, and then I tasted this 2016 edition alone about a month later to confirm my impressions. These vintages are identical twins, two perfect wines. »

    “The 2016 Pinot Noir was aged for eight months in mostly French oak (second to fourth use) and comes in at 12.5% alcohol. Cortes de Cima is doing nice work with this unusual grape (for Alentejo), although there is still some work to be done. Sourced from the winery's cooler coastal properties, this is very elegant. Seductive in texture, it caresses the palate. If the fruit does not seem quite as classic, lifted or defined as it was on the 2015, it has certain subtle persistence that is appealing. The tannins are ripe but provide support. You can still drink this right now.”
