About the Wine
Chateau Saint Pierre dates back to the 17th century. Henri Martin purchased the classified Fourth Growth Medoc estate in 1982. Henri Martin's family has a long history in the Bordeaux region, dating back more than 300 years. Today Chateau Saint Pierre is managed by Jean-Louis Triaud, who also manages Chateau Gloria and owns the Girondins de Bordeaux, the professional football team of Bordeaux.
The majority of their vines are located near the village of Saint Julien not far from Chateau Ducru Beaucaillou which retails for $200 a bottle. On average their vines are 50 years old. Saint-Julien has the highest concentration of cru classés with 11 over 900 hectares.
Chateau Saint Pierre is one of the few classified growths that does not produce a second wine. With complete focus on the Grand Vin and leading the use of technology in winemaking, it is no surprise this Grand Vin hailed a 'Bravo!' from multiple critics. Chateau Saint Pierre Saint-Julien was one of the first estates to use satellite imagery to help identify when parcels are ready to pick.
Aging: 14 to 16 months in French Oak
Tasting Notes: Red Wine. 75% Cabernet Sauvignon 15% Merlot 10% Cabernet Franc. Full-bodied, round, and refined. The nose shows espresso, blackberry, and floral notes.
This 17-hectare estate has been rejuvenated by owner Jean-Louis Triaud and is certainly producing some of the top wines from the appellation today. I tasted the deep, inky-colored 2015 Château Saint-Pierre twice and it’s reminiscent of the 2010, only with more elegance. In 2015 the wine is a blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19% Merlot, and 6% Cabernet Franc and it spent 14 months in 50% new and 50% once used barrels. Chocolate-covered dark fruits, damp earth, tobacco leaf, and lead pencil shaving-like notes emerge from this huge, concentrated beauty that has building tannin and a huge mid-palate. It’s an incredible wine that builds with time in the glass, has no hard edges, and is going to 3-4 decades of life. Bravo! ~97 Jeb Dunnuck
The 2015 Saint-Pierre offers more fruit on the nose than the Gruaud Larose with quite fabulous blackberry laced with pencil lead and tobacco. There is real joie de vivre and intensity here. The palate is medium-bodied with fine but quite firm tannin, very well balanced and pure with a gentle but insistent, mineral-driven, quite sinewy finish that is an absolute treat. This comes highly recommended. Tasted twice both in London and Bordeaux at the property. Bravo. ~94 Wine Advocate
This wine has a very toasty style, with spice and wood tannins that give an extracted character with some bitterness. That contrasts with the fruit that is developing, and it seems that the wood will integrate over time. Drink from 2025. ~92 Wine Enthusiast
The original OG bottle from Corralejo is a collector's item for many. These unique hand-blown blue bottles are still available. We have only a limited supply and once they are gone, they are gone.
Sold in 6x750ml cases.
With 98 Points, this amazing "Baby Amarone" is one of Luca Maroni's "Best Italian Wines" of the vintage. Decanter seems to agree, bestowing 96 points on this outstanding example from the region.
Arduini winery was founded in the 1940s, when Luciano’s grandfather, Gabriele started his business in the small town of “Canal” in Marano Valpolicella.
Luciano Arduini took over his father’s company and followed his example by continuing the tradition and adding modernity along with his own personal vision to the winery. Today, Luciano and his son Andrea work together to grow the vines and make the wine. Their style is a perfect fusion between the traditional and the modern.
Andrea Arduni is a passionate winemaker. He graduated from the best school of enology in Pisa in 2007. He has worked for more than 16 wineries around the world. From Tuscany, Umbria, Campania, Trentino, and Piedmont in Italy, and even outside Italy, in South Africa, Romania, and Greece.
Arduini Winery continues to grow and innovate, following the evolutionary path mapped out over seventy years ago. In 2020, they began producing wine in a new and modern cellar.
Andrea Arduini says, "Our philosophy consists in obtaining a product which is the source of joy, happiness, and friendship; those are the most important principles in our lives."
The winery produces several local varietals including Corvina Veronese, Corvinone, Rondinella, Molinara, and other native grapes. The line includes Valpolicella Classico, Amarone Della Valpolicella, Recioto Della Valpolicella, Valpolicella Classico Superiore, and Grappa di Amarone.
This wine is produced by a method called “Ripasso”.Ripasso is a term that derives from the refermentation of the grapes on the Amarone lees, which gives the wine a deeper color, body, and dried fruit flavors. These wines tend to have a rich, full-bodied, slight sweetness to them.
Aging: The wine ages 12 months, one-third in French barrels, one-third in American barrels, the other third in Slavonian oak barrels, and the rest of the time in bottles.
Tasting Notes: 60% Corvina, 20% Corvinone, 20% Rondinella. Ruby red color with light purple shades. On the nose, fresh, and floral, and featured black cherry and blackberry notes. On the palate, these aromas carry into the mouth. This wine pairs excellent with red, roasted meat and matured cheeses. We love to share this wine during the holidays because it has a magical balance of sweet ripe fruit, balanced alcohol, and an acidity that pairs with so many different foods.
~98 pts "The Best Italian Wines" Luca Maroni
Ripe and bold with a sweet, jammy fruit profile. There are light black cherries intertwined with sweet spices and a precise fruit palate. The mouthfeel is tight, intense, and deep with an oak sheen and a note of peppery development. ~96 Decanter.
When it comes to high-quality Brunello vintages, 2016 is at the TOP of its game. We just can't get enough of this exceptional year. And apparently, some of the most important wine critics can't either. James Suckling advises that "If you ever wanted a Brunello di Montalcino for your cellar to age for decades, then buy the 2016 vintage." Vinous Media called the 2016 Brunellos "well-muscled black stallions in their prime." And Wine Spectator called it a "Textbook growing season" and concluded by saying that the wines show "finesse, elegance, balance, and harmony."
One of the wines that shine particularly bright from the 2016 vintage, is Scopone's Brunello di Montalcino. This wine is a real treat. This wine was awarded 94 points not once, but twice, with Wines Critic calling it "Exceptional" and stating that "it confirms the greatness of an extraordinary vintage at Montalcino." And Decanter describes it as a classic Brunello with "huge tannins with crunchy acidity." We wholeheartedly agree!
Coming from a long-standing winery, Scopone has a storied and intriguing history. This estate was once a 19th-century farmhouse and became a refuge for the displaced during World War II. After some ups and downs, it was finally acquired by the Genazzani in 1992. Soon, it became a winery born of legend.
In 1993 the mythical winemaker Settimio Dinetti, born and raised among vines and wines, came bearing 50 liters of new wine from the old, old vineyard. Apparently, it was so impossibly delicious that the 50 liters were consumed within “a breath” during an anniversary dinner. Here's where the magic started. Under the guidance of expert winemaker Dinetti, Scopone released its first wine in 1997.
Scopone is the perfect combination of modernity and tradition. Tradition still snakes through the vines of Scopone, giving the wine a classic and distinctive character. But it is with state-of-the-art technology and modern winemaking that the wines achieve this level of excellence.
With love and passion, the vineyards expanded and were recently acquired by the Minari Family. The Minari family has continued the tradition and dedication to these vines. They have eager plans for further expansion. Under the Minari Family, “a new story is being born in the name of Brunello.”
This first-class Brunbello is ready to drink now. For such a decorated wine, it is best paired with grilled meat, braised boar, and succulent steak.
Aging: 30 months French and Slovenian oak barrels.
Tasting Notes: 100% Sangiovese. Ruby red color with sweet, ripe black cherry aromas, that are in perfect harmony with notes of tobacco, vanilla, and pepper. Full flavored and elegant, it finishes with notes of violet. Long long finish.
Very ripe red fruit and roses with a touch of savory earthiness and leather notes. Huge tannins with crunchy acidity. ~94 Decanter.
Muscular and rich in dark energy giving fullness and a delicate concentration of black prunes, blackberries, black tea leaves, wild myrtle, juniper berries, and cloves. The burnt citrus in the background brings back memories of winter afternoons in front of the fire with hints of cinnamon, vanilla, cedar chippings, and mandarin rind. Full-bodied, velvety fine-grained tannins and a savory well-distended finale of medium progression. Exceptional, it confirms the greatness of an extraordinary vintage at Montalcino. Better from 2021. ~94 WinesCritic.com
Sweet, ripe black cherries on the nose with violets and dried rose petals. Full-bodied with firm, slightly austere tannins. Yet, it remains fresh and vivid. Turns lightly bitter on the finish with some burnt orange peel. Drink after 2022. ~93 James Suckling.

Mannucci Droandi is a family-owned artisanal winery that has early origins in farming and winemaking. In the 18th century, the Droandis were farmers in Carmignano and the Mannuccis were landowners in Valdarno. Today the estate is run by Maria Grazia Mammuccini. Committed to the traditions of her family, but also to innovation, she carries forward what previous generations had built up.
Maria works hand by hand with Roberto Droandi, also named the "Lord of the Vines." by the magazine Italia A Tavola. Just as his nickname implies, he's the mastermind behind the vineyard and the cellar. He uses responsible viticulture in the vineyards, and in 2000, the winery was certified organic.
Mannucci Droandi owns two different vineyards: Campolucci and Ceppeto. Campolucci, meaning “field of the holy wood”, consists of a grand farmhouse that houses the winery and cellars, along with specialized vineyards and olive groves. The vineyards are situated on the eastern slope of the Chianti mountains, above sea level at 250m. Ceppeto is located in one of the best areas of the Chianti Classico appellation. It hosts more vineyards and olive groves planted around a large, stone 18th-century farmhouse. This is on the east side of the Chianti mountains, 400m above sea level.

Mannucci Droandi's vineyards are planted in their majority with Chianti's great queen, Sangiovese. The cellar, managed by talented winemaker Gianfrancesco Paoletti, is equipped with state-of-the-art enological equipment and a mix of renewing older vine systems with new planting systems. Their wines are high quality and a great expression of the terroir.
With multiple 90+ reviews from major wine critics, including James Suckling who said this is a "fruity and savory" Chianti and WinesCritic describing its "excellent quality and brightness," the 2018 Mannucci Droandi Chianti Ceppetto Alto DOCG certainly lives up to the family name.
Aging: 18 months in French oak barrels.

Vino Nobile di Montepulciano is the first Italian DOC. This place, -also referred to as “The King of All Wines”- was known to be the favorite of some of the most influential Popes, Kings, and Presidents of Italy. Montepulciano in Tuscany holds some of the world’s greatest hidden treasures. One of them is Fattoria Della Talosa.
Talosa’s story started over 50 years ago when Angelo Jacorossi acquired this beautiful historical estate, (and when I say beautiful, I really mean be-a-u-ti-ful.) The Jacorossi family started pushing very strongly to produce extremely high-quality wines, so much so that this estate became a watershed in the quality of Vino Nobile di Montepulciano. Today, this award-winning winery is being managed by the 3rd generation of the Jacorossi family.
This property comprises more than 80 acres of vineyards, established in one of the loveliest Crus in Montepulciano called Pietrose. This outstanding place is located at a 350–400-meter altitude, with the vineyards facing southwest. The vines thrive in medium-textured soils of Pliocene origin, with Tuff and clayey sands. These perfect terroir conditions, combined with the expert hands of winemakers Christian and Luigi, result in alluring, unique, and powerful wines.
The estate is ridiculously beautiful, a place that seems to be the set of a medieval time movie. Talosa’s historical cellar dates back to the 16th century. Visiting this place is like stepping back in time. The cellar is built in an underground area between Tarugi Palace and the Sinatti Palace, two of the oldest buildings in the city.

About the Wine
Superbly located on a knoll overlooking the Gironde estuary, the château lies at the center of a single block vineyard of 126 acres. The estate was founded in the 17th century, the first vines were planted by the monks that owned the property at the time. Large improvements have been made to the estate since its purchase in 2004 by the CA Grand Crus. The ownership brought on Hubert de Bouard, the winemaker of Chateau Angelus, to consult. With new leadership, Chateau Meyney is now producing the best wine it ever has.
Château Meyney looks down onto the Gironde and the presence of the estuary protects the estate from frosts. The vineyard is planted on Garonne gravels. The vines are an average age of 35 to 40 years, divided between typical Bordeaux varieties. The vines climb to an altitude of 20 meters up, quite a steep slope, ensuring good natural drainage of the soil. Similar to “Pétrus”, a layer of blue clay about 10 feet thick lies at a depth of 8 feet below the surface. These remarkable natural factors give the wine an exceptional richness.
Tasting Notes: Red wine. 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30%Merlot and 10% Petit Verdot. The wine is intensely aromatic with dark fruit and a gamey earthy quality. The palate is big without being overwhelming.

Blueberry, blackcurrant, clove, dark chocolate, praline, and gravel on the nose. It’s full-bodied with firm, fine-grained tannins. Focused, chewy, and layered. Fantastic effort here. Try from 2025. ~95 James Suckling
The 2018 Meyney is powerful, dense, and super-expressive. Gravel, game, scorched earth, smoke, licorice, incense, and spice infuse this potent, virile Saint-Estèphe. The fruit profile and oak integration point to a transition towards a less extracted style. Even so, there is plenty of richness readers have come to expect from Meyney. Tasted two times. ~91-94 Antonio Galloni

About the Wine
Loosely translated from Cajun French, the name of Greg Martellotto’s latest Pinot phenom means “Let the Good Times Roll.” It’s an appropriate phrase; this elegant limited-production expression of some of California’s most sought-after Pinot grapes brings the party, at a price that won’t crush a wine lover’s wallet. Sensual notes of oak, lavender and raspberry seamlessly transition from the nose to the palate, where they’re accompanied by a voluptuous structure and sublime balance.
The 2017 vintage is sourced from the exciting new project at Spear Vineyard in Sta. Rita Hills. The grapes are farmed organically. Located just over a hill from the Seasmoke vineyard and south of Highway 246, these are some very lovingly and attentively farmed vines.
The wine aged in 100% French oak, 10% new. It was bottled after 11 months to maintain a freshness and vivacity. Like all great Pinots, this wine is a bit of a seductress. It allures with notes of spice, light cedar, and a bright raspberry. Slowly, it reveals itself with aeration.
