2016 La Massa "La Massa" Toscana

2015 Castello di Banfi Brunello di Montalcino (Pre-Arrival) (Pre-Arrival)

2014 Baricci Brunello di Montalcino
Top Pick!
95 points Wine Enthusiast: "Wild herb, perfumed berry and pressed rose aromas lift out of the glass along with a whiff of eucalyptus. Smooth, delicious and balanced, the lithe palate has great tension, doling out juicy red cherry, raspberry compote, star anise and baking spice backed up by vibrant acidity.

2016 Tenuta Roveglia "Vigne di Catullo" Lugana Riserva

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "One of the benchmark bottlings for the denomination, this opens with enticing scents of fragrant white flower, white stone fruit and botanical herb.

Monica Larner writes: "One of the oldest estates in the Langhe, Fratelli Barale was founded in 1870, shortly after the Barolo denomination was created with the help of Marchesi Falletti and founding father of modern Italy, Count of Cavour, Camillo Benso. Sergio Barale and his daughters manage the estate today. The various expressions of Barolo are all aged from two to three years in botte grande."

Ettore Spina and his wife, Enrica Bandirola, owners of Sesta di Sopra, planted a new vineyard to Sangiovese in 2005. It has the same Galestro soils as the others, perfect for taming Sangiovese's natural vigor. Unfortunately, in Montalcino all of the Brunello di Montalcino and Rosso di Montalcino vineyards are all registered and controlled, and they aren't allowing any more to be added right now, so the wine that comes from this new vineyard has to be designated an IGT (Indicates Geographic Tipicity). (Greg St. Clair, K&L Italian Wine Buyer)

This has been the #1 selling Italian wine for more than two decades at K&L! You can't get that kind of continued success without a supremely fantastic quality-to-price ratio. The southern Tuscan coast is a wonderful location for winemaking, with stable temperatures and a solid history of quality, yet no fame and fortune. Incredibly priced bargains come out of the region, and the proof is in the bottle. This wine is wonderful, soft, forward and easy-to-drink Sangiovese with an enticing mixture of cherry, plum and earth. Eminently drinkable.
Price: $9.99

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Tenuta di Sesta 2014 Brunello di Montalcino opens to an evolved appearance that showcases dark garnet saturation. However, this expression is also thicker and slightly more concentrated compared to many of its peers in this vintage. In 2014, the wines are lighter, generally speaking. You get a bright bouquet with crisp aromas of wild berry, blue flower and spice. The thinness of the vintage is apparent to the palate. This is a compact and streamlined Brunello with medium length. Some 30,000 bottles were made....

2015 Ferrero Brunello di Montalcino (Pre-Arrival) (Pre-Arrival)

2016 Tenuta di Sesta Poggio d'Arna
Top Pick!
A blend of 40% Sangiovese, 30% Cabernet Franc and 30% Merlot from a 200-hectare estate with 30 hectares under vine. The property has been owned and managed by Giovanni Ciacci and his family since 1996. The first bottles of Brunello from the Tenuta di Sesta Estate were produced in 1966 by Giuseppe Ciacci, father of current owner. According to the winery, there were only twelve other such producers at the time and, for this reason, the Tenuta di Sesta Estate is recognized as one of the historical estates in the territory of Montalcino.

This three-liter box is 100% Friulano (though it cannot be labeled as such because the DOC's laws do not recognize box wine, as of yet). I think there is no tastier, more versatile white wine in our store right now that beats this Bianco for value and pure drinkability. It combines the body, weight and richness of what California Chardonnay feels like with the minerality and freshness of how Pinot Grigio tastes, which just makes it the perfect cocktail white. It is ideal for keeping in the fridge (I've tasted them after they've been open for 6 months and...

90 points Wine Enthusiast: "Delicately scented, this elegant white offers enticing aromas of orchard fruit, alpine herb and a whiff of wet stone. Polished and fresh, the palate doles out creamy yellow pear, ripe apple and almond while a hazelnut note lingers on the finish. KO" (08/2019) K&L Notes: A family owned winery first established in 1928, Peter Zemmer has built its reputation on producing wines from some of the finest estates in and around Cortina s.s.d.v. in Alto Adige of South Tyrol.

2016 Podere Donna Nera Rosso di Montalcino
Top Pick!
92 points Decanter: "Luca Brunelli runs this 15ha family estate on the outskirts of Montalcino, producing a Brunello and this lovely Rosso. It's an excellent price for the quality, showing firm tannins and exotic spice from the nine months in Slavonian barrels and French barriques. This is fleshed out by ripe black cherry fruit and lifted by brisk acidity. Tina Gellie" (09/2018)

2016 La Monacesca "Mirum" Verdicchio di Matelica Riserva
Top Pick!
93 points James Suckling: " A complex, quite flinty verdicchio with a ton of citrus fruit and pears and a rather succulent but not heavy palate. In fact, the finish has a nice lightness of touch and some real finesse. Drink now." (08/2018) K&L Notes: The Matelica region of the Marche is one of the most unique growing zones in all of Italy; it is a north-south valley in the middle of the Apennine mountain range that once was a salt lake. The orientation of the valley closes it off from the warm coastal waters (the opposite of the west coast of the US) a...

Drink after 2021. " (06/2019) 91 points Vinous: "The 2016 Barbaresco Autinbej is a very pretty entry-level wine in this range. Black cherry, spice, menthol, licorice and dried flowers all open up in a fruity, forward Barbaresco that will drink well right out of the gate. This is such a delicious and inviting wine.

2016 Fontodi "Flaccianello della Pieve" Toscana (Pre-Arrival) (Pre-Arrival)
New!
100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Fontodi's 2016 Flaccianello della Pieve is a masterpiece. This review represents a composite of notes from two separate tasting sessions, one at the winery and a second bottle tasted repeatedly over the course of 24 hours at my own pace. In the case of the second sample, it ended up in a blind flight next to the 2016 Masseto, and as beautiful as that Merlot-based wine is, this wine paints an even more beautiful portrait of a perfect Tuscan landscape, thanks to that tangy Sangiovese typicity. This vintage shows a...

2017 Cantina Andrian Trentino-Alto Adige Pinot Grigio
Top Pick!
93 points James Suckling: "This is a stunning Pinot Grigio for the difficult vintage with a ton of ripe melon, candied orange and just a hint of raisin bread. Ripe, concentrated and mouth-filling, but beautifully balanced with a very long finish that’s deep and lively." (11/2018)
Price: $13.99

This delightful Pecorino displays exactly why the indigenous Italian white grapes provide such a fantastic value when it comes to crowd-pleasing versatility. First floral, especially redolent of acacia and apricot blossom, it then segues into ripe peach and apples on the palate with an engaging juxtaposition of acidity and a slight honeyed character. Perfect for hard cheeses and aperitif drinking.

2016 Sesta di Sopra Rosso di Montalcino
Top Pick!
90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The folks at Sesta di Sopra are releasing this wine later than usual. The 2016 Rosso di Montalcino (with 8,400 bottles made) is a terrific expression that acts and tastes like a full-fledged Brunello. The wine opens slowly in the glass, revealing budding complexity as it does. It shows bright berry intensity with grilled herb, pressed violet and potting soil. The mid-weight finish is elegant and tight. (ML) 90+" (02/2019)

2017 La Monacesca Verdicchio di Matelica
Top Pick!
The Matelica region of the Marche is one of the most unique growing zones in all of Italy; it is a north-south valley in the middle of the Apennine mountain range that once was a salt lake. The orientation of the valley closes it off from the warm coastal waters (the opposite of the west coast of the US) and gives it a more continental climate of cold winters, hot summers but cool nights, the perfect balance to make vibrant wines.

" (07/2018) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "From a hot vintage, the 2017 Roero Arneis is a rich and pulpy white wine with bright fruit definition. The bouquet delivers tropical fruit, papaya and apricot. The mouthfeel is rich with thick fruit flavors. This vintage shows superior s...

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "Subtle aromas of leafy underbrush, leather, truffle and red berry come together on this while the full-bodied palate delivers juicy red cherry, raspberry compote, baking spice and grilled herb. Chewy tannins provide the framework while a note of star anise closes the finish. (KO)" (10/2016) 90 points James Suckling: "This shows delicate aromas of rosemary with red licorice and dried berries. This is delicate and light-bodied with almost no tannins, good freshness and a nice, fruity finish. Really enjoyable." (11/2016)

The estate’s most recently created wine, a white made with 100% Viognier, planted in sandy soil which is in actual fact the bed of an old, dried-up lake.

Then dense, bright and juicy, featuring suave pomaceous orchard fruit flavors and a hint of gingery zing on the clean finish.

2017 Fratelli Alessandria "Prinsiot" Langhe Nebbiolo

From the importer: "A selection of younger Nebbiolo vines from three separate vineyards in Verduno. Aged 10 months in neutral Slavonian and French oak casks.

90 points James Suckling: "A very pretty and fruity Barbera with flavors of cherries and raspberries, as well as a hint of vanilla highlighting the medium body. Fresh acidity, too. A delicious wine. Drink now. " (06/2018) K&L Notes: The Barbera grapes for this wine were grown in vineyards dating back to the early 19th century. It's a vibrant ruby red in the glass with a dry, full body. Thanks to the long growing season in this northern part of Italy, the wine develops gorgeous acid that makes it a perfect accompaniment to roasted and braised meats.
Price: $18.99

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Barolo shows classic lines and a beautiful disposition that prizes bright primary fruit and Nebbiolo complexity, especially at this early stage in the wine's evolutionary trajectory.
