Fornacina 2012 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva

Fornacina only produces their riserva bottling in their very best vintages. From 100% Sangiovese Grosso selected from vineyards in Castelnuovo dell'Abate, a charming village hanging over the Abbey de Sant'Antimo a couple kilometers south of Montalcino. This riserva wine is vinified in stainless steel for thirty days before  spending 48 months in the huge Slavonian oak casks traditional to the region. After this, the wine spends another twelve months in bottle before being released to the market. This allows an extraordinary delicacy of tannic texture that belies this wine's immense power. This is on the spicier side for Brunello, with notes of morello cherry and plum enrobed in silken hints of baking spices like cinnamon, vanilla, and licorice. Full bodier, rich, and elegant, this wine is fantastic with braised meats, filet mignon, wine-based stews, and osso buco. Andrew Farquhar

Lecci e Brocchi 2017 Toscano IGT Il Meticcio Rosato

(Was $19.99) The delicious "Il Meticcio" is a blend of Canaiolo, Malvasia and Ciliegiolo - a blend dedicated to their mixed breed dog "Tiberio." The wine shows a beautiful pink/orange color  and aromas of red currant, cranberry, blood orange and rose, quite lovely. One finds bright red currant and tart morello cherry on the palate which is ripe and sapid but light and refreshing with stone and mineral flavors lingering in the finish with red fruits and citrus. Quite delicious now, this should drink beautifully over the next 12 to 24 months.

Monte Bernardi 2016 Chianti Classico Retromarcia

Retromarcia means “to back up” or “to reverse” and is Michael Schmelzer’s reference to an old approach to Chianti that is hard to find today, focused on allowing the character of Sangiovese to show above everything else.  The wine is made from 100% Sangiovese composed of young vines planted on a mix of galestro and sandstone soils.  The grapes are fermented with native yeast on the skins for 2 weeks in stainless steel and then raised in a mixture of old barrels and unlined concrete tanks for 18 months before being bottled unfiltered.  As a classic Chianti should be, the acidity is mouthwatering, warming up the palate for a range of food; try it with everything from classic red sauce pastas, sauteed greens, and saltier cheeses all the way to richer food like roasted lamb or game birds.
