Highly Rated Brunello, Produttori Riserva Brief Reprise

Next up in our highly rated, legendary-vintage 2015 Brunello new arrivals: Caprili. 95 points Wine Spectator, Highly Recommended, and sub $45 has this looking like an early contender for a high placement in Spectator's Top 100.

Plus, after a lightning-fast sellout (hours!) last week of 2015 Produttori del Barbaresco Riservas, we have a tiny second batch of Muncagota, Montefico, and Pora. As we said last time and meant it, don't delay.

$44.95 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case order ($49.95 regular)

95 points Wine Spectator, Highly Recommended: "Offering cherry, plum, iron, earth and floral aromas and flavors, this is vibrant and beautifully balanced. Well structured, with the harmony and concentration to develop. Best from 2023 through 2043."

Super-limited reprise! For decades, Produttori del Barbaresco was one of the wine world's best kept secrets. They weren't just some of the greatest Nebbiolos, they were some of the world's greatest wines. While the secret was slowly being revealed, the last five years worth of praise from every major wine publication has caused a worldwide feeding frenzy for Produttori's most coveted releases: the single vineyard Barbaresco Riservas.

97 points Wine Enthusiast, Editors' Choice: "Rose, red berry and star anise aromas align with earthy whiffs of forest floor and new leather. The full-bodied, delicious palate doles out succulent Morello cherry, black raspberry, licorice and chopped mint set against a backbone of firm but refined tannins. It's already gorgeous but will be even better with just a few more years of bottle age. Drink 2022–2030

96 points Wine Enthusiast, Cellar Selection: "Balsamic aromas of camphor and new leather mingle with scorched earth and mature black-skinned berry on this full-bodied red. Mirroring the nose, the enveloping palate delivers ripe Marasca cherry, black raspberry and licorice alongside tightly knit, fine-grained tannins before a hazelnut close. Drink 2022–2030."

95 points Wine Enthusiast: "Underbrush, wild herb and dark-skinned-berry aromas form the nose along with a whiff of camphor. On the firm, structured palate, tightly knit but noble tannins offset dried Marasca cherry, cranberry, orange zest and star anise. Tense and youthfully austere, it needs a few years to unwind. Drink 2022–2027."
