A Top Tuscany domaine, making full-bodied wines that will reward cellaring for several years.
   
11   CHIANTI CLASSICO RISERVA
Castellare di Castellina

Vinous.com/Antonio Galloni - The 2016 Chianti Classico Riserva is beguiling and wonderfully nuanced. Lavender, mint, sage, tobacco, spice, leather and dark red/bluish fruits shape the wine with tons of complexity as well as character. This mid-weight, super-classic Riserva captures the Castellare style beautifully. Most importantly, the 2016 offers tremendous value. In fact, as seen through lens of quality for the money, the Riserva is THE wine to buy in this range.

30 75cl BRUNELLO di MONTALCINO
Il Poggione

Vinous.com/Eric Guido -
Il Poggione 2015 Brunello di Montalcino offers up a dark, earthy, almost animal-like expression, showing black soil and undergrowth, giving way to crushed black cherry, dusty spice, and dried florals which lift the experience. On the palate, soft, fleshy textures usher in fresh cherry and strawberry, as brisk acids add energy, with savoury herbs and minerals saturating, as the 2015 Il Poggione’s fruit nearly masks its structural core. The finish is long yet fresh, with classic, fine tannins, dried red fruits and pretty inner floral tones lingering throughout this perfectly balanced expression. The 2015 s pure class and built for the cellar.

BRUNELLO di MONTALCINO
RISERVA VIGNA PAGANELLI
Il Poggione

RP -
The 2005 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Vigna Paganelli is a phenomenal effort in this average vintage. I am amazed by the estate's ability to make a wine with this level of textural richness, depth and sheer power in 2005. This is a dark, inward Brunello loaded with black fruit, smoke, tar, menthol and a host of other dark, sensual aromas and flavours. The wine’s length and intensity are truly a marvel to behold.

CHIANTI CLASSICO
Querciabella

Antonio Galloni -
 The 2015 Chianti Classico, 100% Sangiovese, is all class. The flavours are vibrant and lively, with plenty of bright red cherry and strawberry character. This is an especially understated, finessed wine for the year. The Chianti Classico is a blend of approximately 40% Greve, 40% Gaiole and 20% Radda fruit. All the elements come together beautifully.

     TENUTA dell'
ORNELLAIA
Lodovico Antinori built up one of the most successful and famous wineries in all of Italy in the hills near Bolgheri, next door to the estate of Sassicaia. The wines reflect the exceptional terroir of the region, complemented by the wonderful Mediterranean climate of coastal Tuscany.
We especially recommend their lovely early drinking wine: Le Volte and Le Serre Nuove at a fraction of the price of the top 'Ornellaia' cuvve.

LE SERRE NUOVE dell'Ornellaia
Tenuta San Guido

Antonio Galloni
- The 2015 Le Serre Nuove shows just how alluring this vintage is. Silky, perfumed and also wonderfully light on its feet, the 2015 is a real pleasure to taste today. All of the Ornellaia signatures come through in an attractive, mid-weight wine that will drink well right out of the gate. The 2015 is a stunning Serre Nuove. That's all there is to it.
