Hot Deals on 2013 Il Poggione Brunello

& 2016 Caiarossa Pergolaia

Two Top Tuscans from Great Vintages


Let’s cut to the chase: any lover of Brunello—no, any lover of Italian wine—should have a case of Il Poggione’s Brunello in their cellar if they can afford it.  The combination of classical proportions and attention grabbing power and complexity is extremely rare in a wine, especially at these sorts of prices.

Latour’s Entry Level Pauillac


Chateau Latour is one of the great names in wine—a Bordeaux house that needs no introduction or explanation.  While many focus on their Grand Vin, they also offer two other bottlings from their property in—the least expensive of which is simply labeled as “Pauillac.”

Champagne Georges Laval


Champagne Georges Laval is one of the stars of the grower movement—a cult winery whose wines appear in miniscule quantities here in the states.  Vincent Laval makes wines that are rigid in their structure and impressive in their complexity—serious wines for studied drinking.  We’ve been working hard to secure some of these wines and are finally able to offer them today, freshly arrived.

A Vertical of Oddero’s Majesterial Riservas


We love hyper-traditional Barolo—there’s something about it that seems aristocratic, truly the wine of kings and the king of wines.  The combination of power and delicacy, the youthful austerity that blooms into glorious aromatics and texture with age is magic.  While it doesn’t always lead to high scores from reviewers, it does lead to absolutely stunning wines down the road.

Oddero’s wines represent some of the best, most traditional Barolo on the market today.

Terre Nere


More than any other winery, Terre Nere is responsible for the modern interest in wines from Etna.  With vineyards in most of the historically important crus of the slopes of Etna and very old vines, Terre Nere was the first to bottle single-parcel wines from the indigenous variety Nerello and brought international focus and admiration to this once-overlooked region. The high altitude and dark volcanic soils help yield distinctive wines from the indigenous grape varieties and the winery hews to a very traditional model inspired by Burgundy. 

Newly Arrived from Terre Nere:
