    Weingut Gross

    Slovenia (Slovenia), Styria (Slovenia)

    6 x 750 ml

    Breads, Cured Meat, Rich Fish, Soft Cheese, White Meat


    Complex bouquet of orange and lemon zest, tropical fruits as well as a sprinkling of vanilla and fennel. Solid backbone with a flinty, mouth watering acidity and a well integrated oaky touch adding some complexity. This is a beautifully concentrated, intense wine with a lingering finish.

    Aldo Rainoldi

    Italy (Italy), Lombardy (Italy)

    6 x 750 ml

    Breads, Cured Meat, Hard Cheese, Red Meat, Roasted Vegetables


    Rainoldi's Sfursat Ca' Rizzieri is simply a stunning wine with great structure yet elegant at the same time. A rich and complex nose with plentiful dark fruit aromas, hints of coffee, cocoa and roasted hazelnut. On the palate, there is a lovely tension between sweet, dried fruits and a much juicier, firm cherry character. A wine of high alcohol content, it's intense and mouth-filling with a sheen of tannin. Finishes with remarkable length - absolutely mesmerizing. If you are a fan of Barolo, you will love this wine.

    Tre Bicchieri - Gambero Rosso 2019

    4 out of 4 - Vitae Guide 2019

    "The 2015 Sfursat di Valtellina Fruttaio Ca' Rizzieri is made from a special selection of Chiavennasca (or Nebbiolo) grapes that are air-dried on mats in the traditional fruttaio Ca' Rizzieri building located 500 meters above sea level. Mountain breezes fuel steady ventilation and keep the clusters healthy. The wine is fermented in barrique and aged in new oak for up to 18 months with an additional year in bottle. This is a mid-weight wine that offers loads of power (with 15.5% alcohol) that spreads clear over the palate. It shows dried berry aromas of cassis and cranberry with subtle tones of bacon fat and campfire ash at the back. This is the proverbial après-ski wine to warm your bones after a long day outdoors in the snow."

    Scarpa

    Italy (Italy), Piedmont (Italy)

    6 x 750 ml

    Breads, Cured Meat, Hard Cheese, Red Meat, Roasted Vegetables


    The bouquet is rich, and elegant, with powerful strawberry laced cherry fruit supported by deft greenish accents and pleasant nutmeg spice. On the palate it's full and rich with powerful berry fruit laced with yellow peach sweetness and supported by deft sour strawberry acidity, while the tannins are quite young, with a slight burr and very smooth, and flow into a long clean warm finish. Just coming into its own. > Learn More

  4. New Côte-Rôtie Réserve by Stéphane Ogier 2015

    US$954.00

    Michel et Stéphane Ogier

    France (France), Northern Rhône (France)

    6 x 750 ml

    Red Meat, Vegetables


    "Deep ruby. A deeply perfumed bouquet evokes fresh dark berries, violet, olive paste and smoky minerals, with a suave floral topnote. Offers densely packed black and blue fruit, floral pastille and spicecake flavors that stretch out slowly as the wine opens up. Displays excellent definition on a very long, lively finish that's given shape by chewy, building tannins. (JR) "

    "The 2015 Côte Rôtie Reserve is brilliant stuff. I was able to taste this from two separate bottles and it never failed to impress. Coming from all the estate terroirs, and including some seriously top juice, its deep purple color is followed by a beautiful perfume of black raspberries, spiced meats, and incense, with an undeniable mineral/dried earth character developing with time in the glass. With full-bodied richness, ripe, yet present tannin, good mid-palate depth, and a great finish, it needs 2-3 years of bottle age and will cruise for 10-15 years. 93+"

    "The 2015 Cote Rotie Reserve is rich, velvety-textured and long. Raspberries and herbal notes are joined by hints of cured meat in this medium to full-bodied wine. It should drink well for up to 15 years. (JC)"

    6 x 750 ml

    Breads, Red Meat, Vegetables


    Scarpa was among the founders of the appellations of Barbaresco and Barolo. They offers a combination of current and historical vintages of its wines. Their wines are made traditionally with long fermantations and natural yeasts.

    Ruby colour with garnet red reflections. Fine and fruity notes of berries, weathered roses. Rich and strong and yet very elegant. A longer aging improves the bouquet. Very characteristic with a long, full-bodied finish.

    "An admittedly hard act to follow, but the 1962 Scarpa Barolo Riserva Speciale (a wine I hadn’t tried in the last six or seven years and was curious to see how it was holding up) was up to the task, and then some. This bottle was in perfect shape (decent provenance is always a problem with older Italian wines), still showcasing bright red cherry, rose petal and delicate tar aromas and flavors of noteworthy intensity, supported by vibrant acidity; unfortunately, thirty minutes after opening the bottle, less memorable woodsy and underbrush notes took over, while the fruit disappeared. Nevertheless I was very impressed by the wine, especially considering that 1962 is remembered as a vintage of mainly elegant Barolos but of dubious ageworthiness. Clearly, they were confident of the wine’s merits at Scarpa, as they chose to make a Riserva Speciale, something I wouldn’t have thought to be a particularly good idea in the 1962 vintage. Clearly, this wine proves me wrong."

    Breads, Red Meat, Vegetables


    This is Barbaresco the way it used to be made — where structure, spices, and minerals are at least as important as fruit. The extra aging in cask and in bottle results in a wine that is released when it’s at least beginning to show the qualities that make a Barbaresco worth drinking: secondary aromas and flavors and the complexity that comes with age. In most vintages, the wine will continue to improve for years, if not decades, but if you drink it upon release, at least you won’t be committing infanticide
