The 2016 Bibi Graetz Grilli is a delight. A predominantly Cabernet blend rounded out by Syrah and Merlot all from the heart of Chianti, Bibi bucks convention again by utilizing steel vats to preserve the fruit-forward and overt freshness of the wine. Notes of blackberry preserves and dark plum dominate. Don’t miss out, BIG RED fans. This one is a winner.

It’s rich, yet elegant with refined tannins and a long seamless finish. Meant to be drunk young, you could also tuck a bottle or two away for up to 10 years. This is a full-bodied super-tuscan that delights on the nose with aromas of black and blue berries accented with a bit spice (cinnamon/anise) and a hint of vanilla from the percentage of new oak barrels.
Tenuta Sette Cieli or “The Estate of Seven Skies” is named for the view atop the tiny estate, perched up on a hill overlooking Bolgheri from nearly 1300 ft. Lucky for us, the critics don’t know about this one yet! The 2018 Tenuta Sette Cieli ‘Yantra’ is a wine that if you haven’t heard of you need to try now. Those who have bought it here have raved to me and continue to repurchase. And for great reason. This is easily one of my favorite “Tuesday Nighters” in recent memory.

The 2013 Val di Suga Brunello is particularly exceptional– a result of near perfect growing conditions that allowed for a beautiful garnet colored wine with richness and complexity. It bursts of flavor reveal dark cherry, orange and violet notes with a savory vanilla tobacco and cinnamon finish. It was drinking great about six months ago when I tried it, but having re-tasted it last week, it’s found another gear.
