92 Points (Editors’ Choice), Wine Enthusiast
Made by Cristina Geminani, who Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate called, “one of the best in all of Italy”. But even with that kind of press, I could always count on as much Ceregio Rosso as I needed. That was up until the 92-point Editors’ Choice review! With both brighter acids and darker fruit than Chianti Classico, the Ceregio is brilliant ruby color, with racy, black cherry fruit flavors, and probably the longest finish I’ve ever tasted at any where near this price point.

“This supple red shows a core of cherry and plum fruit allied to olive, juniper and tobacco notes. Delivers well-integrated tannins and acidic structure, lingering nicely on the finish.”

“Northeastern side of Montalcino, a historic and glorious winery, that keeps faithful to its interpretations of classic and juicy Brunello. Nose of blueberry, with touches of eucalyptus, orange peel and rhubarb. The mouthfeel is dense-sapid, crisp, with fruity-citrusy return.” -Luca Maroni

“Ripe, sweet cherry and raspberry fruit are accented by floral, mineral and wild herbs in this alluring red. A backbone of dense, dusty tannins provides support, and the ripe fruit returns on the savory finish. Excellent length. Best from 2023 through 2043.” –Wine Spectator

“Tobacco, truffle, violet and hints of mocha and cherry pie unfold on this beautiful Brunello. Classically crafted and elegantly structured, it delivers flavors of ripe Morello cherry, wild raspberry, baking spice and licorice alongside enveloping, refined tannins. Fresh acidity keeps it nicely balanced. Drink 2028–2039. -Kerin O’Keefe

“Attractive aromas of ripe cherries, dried strawberries, dried orange peel, spices and crushed stones, following through to a medium to full body with compact tannins that are firm and finely grained. Smooth and textured with vivid fruit underneath and a lingering finish. From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold.” -James Suckling
If you want to get an every day Red, you’d be hardpressed to get anything this good for the price. The 2022 ‘Toscana Rosso’ IGT is a straight up beaut. It’s an energetic blend dominated by Sangiovese with a little Cabernet Sauvignon, and Syrah which Robert Parker, Jr. has called “the finest I’ve ever tasted”.

It’s a very intense wine that was described by James Suckling in his 92-point review as “firm and focused” and I think really shows off with its wild red berry fruit, that’s chewy and slightly spicy yet undoubtedly fresh and fruity with lots of symmetry in the glass. The tannins are super silky, making this one incredibly approachable and the finish is persistent and balanced making it extremely memorable.
Drawn from the heart of Tuscany, in Villa di Rèmole, the Sangiovese-dominant wine is an homage to the subregion from which it is drawn. It’s a super juicy, fruity wine that also has some floral and spicier notes that come in to play at the end. It’s an incredibly balanced and elegant wine for the price, a wine that screams for good food, anything from soft cheese to cured meats to pasta or pizza.
95 Points, Decanter
The Gaja family first started releasing this great Brunello in 2015 and doesn’t make it in every vintage, only the ones they deem excellent. It’s a classic Brunello with a light garnett hue. The nose boasts red fruits and Mediterranean herbs with a hint of rosemary and thyme. On the attack, there are Bing cherry notes along with plum and cocoa notes at the back of the palate. It’s a well-balanced wine, but it is still such a baby at the moment. It will reward those with patience but should have another 20-30 years of agebility easily.

“Aromas of bark, dark cherries and flowers, too. It’s medium- to full-bodied with purity of fruit that runs the length of the wine. It goes on for minutes. Very fine tannins. From organically grown grapes. Needs three or four years to completely come together, but gorgeous. Drink after 2026.” -James Suckling
The 2018 Brunello di Montalcino from Aleramici hits all the right notes. It has a nice medium weight to it with easy drinking cherry, creme de cassis and purple fruits. It’s multi-dimensional with waves of some dark plum and blackberry with more sage and spice components as well that compliment it perfectly.
