Tenuta dell'Ornellaia "Le Serre Nuove" Bolgheri 2011 3.0 LT

New low price! Regular Vin Chicago retail on this Double Magnum - $299.99!

94 Vinous, Antonio Galloni
(9/2014) "The 2011 Le Serre Nuove dell'Ornellaia comes across as tight and shut down today. There is plenty of depth in the glass, but less of the appeal I saw just a few months ago. The high tannins of the vintage and the relatively large amount of Petit Verdot (14%) are both very marked at this stage in the wine's life. Readers holding the 2011 are best off cellaring their bottles for at least another 1-2 years. The 2011 Le Serre Nuove is a powerhouse."

Deltetto "Metodo Classico" Brut Rose NV 3.0 LT

91 Our Score
(5/2016) A unique blend of 50% Nebbiolo and 50% Pinot Nero grown on sandy soils specked with seashells. The soil is warm yet airy, allowing full maturation of the fruit and yielding more complexity than your typical pink bubbly. Done in the traditional method, the wine spends 4 years on its yeast prior to disgorgement. Delicate mousse with a powerful onslaught of ripe bing cherry, pomegranate, and almond.

Thierry Allemand "Reynard" Cornas 2014

94-96 Vinous, Josh Raynolds
Josh Raynolds. (12/2015) "Brilliant purple. Intensely perfumed, mineral-tinged scents of musky cherry pit, blueberry, candied licorice and olive; a smoky bacon nuance builds quickly in the glass. Densely packed and appealingly sweet, offering sappy, sharply focused black and blue fruit and floral pastille flavors complicated by suggestions of spicecake and floral pastilles. This sexy wine hits all the classic Syrah notes and finishes very long and sweet, with dusty tannins sneaking in late."

Il Marroneto "Madonna Delle Grazie" Brunello di Montalcino 2012

99 Wine Advocate
(2/28/2017) "Alessandro Mori is the Sangiovese whisperer: l'uomo che sussurrava il Sangiovese. I need to say it in Italian, too, because it sounds so beautiful. The 2012 Brunello di Montalcino Madonna Delle Grazie is a phenomenal wine that speaks so highly of the potential of the mighty Tuscan grape, Sangiovese. This wine mirrors all the greatest attributes of the 100-point 2010 edition. Most significantly, it delivers profound purity and a most authentic varietal voice that sings both the high notes and the bass-baritone. First you have the wine's dark ruby appearance that is brilliant and vibrant but beautifully concentrated. Then you have the multilayered bouquet that skillfully presents ethereal notes of wild berry and grilled herb on first nose. Those lighter tones lift gracefully to reveal substantial aromas of dark fruit, spice, tobacco and white truffle that form the wine's lasting aromatic core. The mouthfeel is feather light in texture, but don't underestimate its power or persistence. This is a true gem of Italian enology and sadly only 6,200 bottles were made. Drink Date: 2018 - 2040."

Thierry Allemand "Les Chaillot" Cornas 2013

94 Vinous, Josh Raynolds
(12/2015) "Deep ruby. Assertive, mineral- and spice-accented aromas of black and blue fruit, candied flowers and licorice, accented by slowly building smoky notes. Sappy, focused and pure, offering intense blackberry and boysenberry flavors that put on weight and become spicier with aeration. Shows outstanding vivacity and power on the penetrating finish, which features building tannins and an emphatic mineral quality."

Marramiero "Dante" Special Reserve Montepulciano d'Abruzzo 2003

Intro
Winemakers Notes
"It is a ruby ??color, bright and deep with hints of garnet; persistent perfumes, large and complex, which express fruit notes, spices and flowers. The palate shows a powerful lobby and at the same time is delicate, rich, and of intriguing originality. It is a tasty, complex wine that makes you want to taste repeatedly. Its great softness and richness of tannins make it ideal for pasta dishes made with truffles and mushrooms, red meat, game and aged cheeses and meats."

Donnhoff Oberhauser Brucke Riesling Eiswein 2011

New low price! Regular Vin Chicago retail - $149.99!
Winemakers Notes
92 Wine Advocate
(2/2013) ""'You with your (expletive) Eiswein!' Gabi told me when we left these grapes hanging," relates Donnhoff, and in fact his 2011 Oberhauser Brucke Riesling Eiswein was another of those that threatened to disrupt the Christmas holidays, and when that didn't happen threatened yet worse. Helmut and Gabi Donnhoff left for Singapore and Cornelius for the U.S. "My daughter Christina was at home," Donnhoff continues, "academically astute, loves wine, but has no idea about viticulture. On January 17, the telephone rings. 'Mama, it's going to get cold tonight. And not just a little: minus 10 (14o F.). What should I do?!' So we set-up a three-way Skype connection, helped organized everything with the pickers, monitored the situation hour-by-hour, and walked Christina through the entire cellar process." I wish I could after all that say we have here 250 liters of truly great Donnhoff Eiswein, but the 2011 vintage itself is surely responsible for any weaknesses, not the unorthodox process by which picking and pressing were managed, let alone Christina, thanks to whom the world is enriched by an amazing if slightly awkward young wine. Musk and leather; prickly radish and lemon rind; caramel apple and honey; passion fruit and mango inform an intense aromatic as well as ultra-concentrated palate performance. Unlike with so many other 2011s rendered from frozen grapes in early 2012, one can't complain here about a lack of Eiswein-like acidity - but it takes-on a somewhat detached, slightly metallic and strident edge. Perhaps this extreme wine's caramelized and animal aspects will reconcile themselves in time with its sharp citricity and radish-like sizzle, but the ways of Eiswein in the bottle are capricious."

Chateau La Gaffeliere St Emilion Bordeaux 2009

95+ Wine Advocate
"An absolutely spectacular effort, the 2009 is one of the all-time great La Gaffelieres produced. One would have to go back to the 2005, 1947 or 1961 to find this level of quality from this ancient, historic vineyard planted adjacent to the walls of St.-Emilion, on the Cote Pavie. Dating back to the 1400s, this estate has been owned for over three centuries by the Malet-Roquefort family. Composed of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc (in the past it was two-thirds Merlot and the rest split between Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc), the 2009 reveals compelling elegance, tremendous intensity and opulence and more viscosity than one normally sees. Lots of kirsch, licorice, incense, truffle, asphalt, blackberry and cassis notes dominate the aromatics and flavors of this full-bodied, viscous, fabulously pure, flamboyant St.-Emilion. Drinking it now may be considered infanticide by some consumers, but it is already attractive, and should last for 3-4 decades."

Deltetto "Metodo Classico" Brut NV

90+ Our Score
(6/2017) The Deltetto family has been making wine in Piedmont since the 1950's. In 2000, their love of bubbles took hold (can you blame them??) and they began making traditional method sparklers. The "Metodo Classico" Brut NV is the best value of them all!! Juicy pear, Honeycrisp apple, lemon curd, dried apricot, spice and a bit of toasty goodness are backed by a clean acidic backbone. This wine spends 36 months on its lees (as long as vintage Champagne) which gives it that nuanced brioche note and a gorgeous round mouthfeel.
