Pack contains one each of the following:
2019 Brovia Nebbiolo d'Alba
"Magnificent Nebbiolo from the elevated, sandy soils of Valmaggione in Roero, north of Barolo. The wine showcases a lighter and more delicate side of Nebbiolo aromatics, with sweet red berries, vanilla spice, and just a hint of sweet earthy / tertiary leather framed by firm yet very approachable tannins. Delicious, complex and very approachable!' Cheers Randall.
2021 Domenico Clerico Langhe Nebbiolo 'Capisme-E'
Nebbiolo "Very young and lively on the nose showing notes of cherries, raspberries, redcurrants, flowering linden, magnolias and gardenias. Medium bodied, a savoury structure of pleasing gustatory equilibrium and a drinkable, polished finish, very likeable for it's harmony and the quality of material. Drink now" 90 points - Raffaele Vecchione, WinesCritic.com
2019 Candialle Chianti Classico 'La Misse di Candialle'
"...Packed with red/purplish fruit, spice, rose petal and blood orange. Translucent and super-expressive, the 2019 is another winner in this range from Candialle. Here, too, the purity of the flavors is magnificent." 93 points - Antonio Galloni, Vinous
2018 Monsanto Chianti Classico 'Annata'
"Cherry, dried herbs and some meaty char, liquorice, and a bit of perfume too. It’s medium-bodied, but quite dense, with compact tannin, a distinct ‘mineral’ feel about it, dry but with good flavour, and a firm finish of solid length" 92 points - Gary Walsh, The Wine Front
2021 Feudo Montoni Nero D'Avola 'Lagnusa'
"The 2021...splashes across the palate with a mineral tinged blend of wild berries and exotic spice. A zesty core of acidity adds a reverberation of tension. The 2021 leaves a liquid floral concentration and subtle tannins to linger." 90 points - Eric Guido, Vinous
These Montoni wines are amazingly interesting, great value and complex in their Central (Inland) Sicilian generosity. I visited a few years back and was mightily impressed. Randall.
2014 Calabretta Terre Siciliane IGT Nerello Mascalese 'Vigne Vecchie'
"The dark and dusty 2014 Nerello Mascalese Vigna Vecchie smolders up with a blend of medicinal blackberries, cherries, balsam herbs and licorice. This flows across the palate like pure silk, yet with building tension. Tart wild berry fruits saturate, and a nervous acidity puckers the cheeks. The 2014 tapers off staining, long and structured, as a coating of fine tannin resonates, and violet inner florals fade." 93 points! - Eric Guido, Vinous
