100-point Brunello, 97-point Barbaresco: Wine Enthusiast Top 100
Wine Enthusiast recently published its Top 100 Cellar Sections of 2018, which includes one of our favorite Piedmont producers, Produttori del Barbaresco. 97 points and #18 for the Rio Sordo Riserva '13, which we loved a bottle of a few weeks ago; no Piedmont cellar is complete without some Produttori Riservas. And we snagged the last few bottles of the 100-point Le Chiuse Brunello, which is available today in 1-bottle increments. It might go without saying but we'll say it nonetheless: these wines will likely sell out quite quickly, so please stake your claim soon. Cheers!
$53.95 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case* order ($59.95 regular)
97 points Wine Enthusiast, #18 in Top 100 Cellar Selections of 2018:"Enticing scents of wild berry, rose, baking spice and balsamic aromas come together in the glass. Juicy yet full in body, the flavorsome palate shows succulent Morello cherry, cranberry, licorice and ground white pepper alongside a backbone of vibrant acidity and firm, polished tannins. It's already exceptional, but will benefit from more aging. Drink 2020-2038."
And we have a very limited quantity of this 100-point gem. 1 bottle limit per customer.

100 points Wine Enthusiast, #2 in Top 100 Cellar Selections of 2018:"Dark spice, pipe tobacco, blue flower, crushed herb and wild berry are just some of the aromas you'll find on this stunningly beautiful, fragrant red. Vibrant and elegant, the radiant palate has great intensity and energy, delivering juicy Marasca cherry, pomegranate, white pepper and star anise set against a backbone of bright acidity and firm, refined tannins. A classic Brunello, with stunning body and superb pedigree, it will age for decades. Drink 2023-2043."
We're looking forward to helping you with an order. Thanks for your support!
