Musella Amarone "Senza Titolo" 2008

"This wine is born from the idea of producing Amarone in the most natural and traditional way possible, starting first from a rigorous grape selection. The second selection is done at the moment of pressing, 100 days after the harvest, when four or five people discard the single grapes if not perfectly healthy. The soft pressing is done by feet, leaving the dry stems in to increase tannin, and the fermentation is with indigenous yeasts in a conical oak  fermenting vat. We do daily pressing by hand until the natural slowing of the fermentation after a few months. This wine rests at least 3 years in a 700L barrel. It is bottled unfined and unfiltered." —winemaker

Blend: Corvina and Corvinone 70%, Rondinella 10%, Oseleta 10%, Croatina 7%, others 3%

Penfolds Bin 620 Cabernet Shiraz 2008

"Deep and generous red with a dark core. This wine instantly proclaims Penfolds...and then, naturally Coonawarra! An aromatic color chart reveals red, rather than blue or black fruits. Also red licorice, black olive. Hovering above — wafts of tomato, quince, and cabernet paste meshed with cinnamon and nutmeg yeast-bun spices. Swirling and time in glass reveal fresh, bright beetroot and star-anise/soy Asian artefact. Exotic, with barely-discernible oak (French?) at least offering one recognizable sensory hook. Although flavors of cola, sarsaparilla and white chocolate are immediately apparent, it is the structure and textural weave that impact. At once, it is tight, focused, and poised. A multi-dimensional continuum, difficult to de-construct." —winemaker

Blend: 51% Cabernet Sauvignon, 49% Shiraz

Rocca di Frassinello Le Sughere Maremma 2008

"The 2008 Le Sughere di Frassinello is 50% Sangioveto, 25% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon. This is one of the more refined, elegant wines I have tasted from this emerging property in Gavorrano. Layers of ripe dark fruit emerge in a silky, refined style that is utterly irresistible. Mint, flowers and spices follow, adding further complexity, while a final burst of juiciness has the last say on the finish. This isn’t the biggest wine Rocca di Frassinello has made, but I am deeply impressed by the classiness and length of the regal finish. As always, I recommend the estate’s wines be opened at least 30 minutes in advance, which seems to help the aromatics of these wines find their center. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2022." -Antonio Galloni
