Altare Barolo Cerretta 2010
The 2010 Barolo Vigna Bricco Cerretta will hit the market in 2016 because Altare treats this as if it were a Riserva. Fruit is from Serralunga d’Alba, am I’m not sure if the words “Vigna” will appear on the final label given the disciplinary changes that limit producers to using the name of a single vineyard on their bottles. It’s hard...

An outstanding surprise, the 2010 Brunello di Montalcino is a monumental wine.

The 2010 Paleo Rosso is the most impressive wine of the tasting and easily cements this wine-s reputation as coastal Tuscany-s finest Cabernet Franc.

Montevertine • Le Pergole Torte 2014
The 2014 Le Pergole Torte has come together quite nicely since I last tasted this wine as a barrel sample shortly after the new year.

This wine...

Sandrone Cannubi Boschis 2000
The 2000 Barolo Cannubi Boschis shows early signs of maturity in its autumn leaves, leather and spices. There is an attractive silkiness to the fruit, but ultimately the 2000 comes across as a bit two-dimensional, especially in context with some of the truly great vintages. The wine does freshen up a touch in the glass, not enough to make a...

Sassicaia 2012
Tenuta San Guido's newest release is the 2012 Bolgheri Sassicaia. This was a warm vintage, especially during summer months that saw hot winds and little rain.
