The Heights Sangiovese Can Reach
2007 Montevertine Le Pergole Torte
Special Pre-Arrival Pricing on this Parcel

"The 2007 Le Pergole Torte is a rock star wine, and then some. The sheer integrity and purity of the fruit is breathtaking, as is frankly everything about this wine... It is a must-have bottle."
- Antonio Galloni, The Wine Advocate

You can almost hear Galloni panting. This is one of those bottles that'll do that: send wine geeks, collectors - even professional critics - into a certifiable frenzy.

Eric Asimov, New York Times’ wine critic, wrote about Montevertine and summed up his sentiment a little more calmly but no less enthusiastically: "Sometimes I fall in love with a producer from the moment I first taste his wine. I know, I sound gullible. But really, if you can sense a purity, a commitment, and of course deliciousness and complexity, why hold back?"

Hedonism with Soul
2006 Siro Pacenti Brunello di Montalcino
A Top Wine of the Vintage

"Giancarlo Pacenti continues to make some of the most brilliant, textured wines in Montalcino. His 2006s are superb."
- Antonio Galloni, Wine Advocate

The 2006 Brunellos have been praised and then praised some more - critic James Suckling calls this "THE greatest modern vintage for Sangiovese." And it's not just the critics here hyperventilating: Giancarlo Pacenti himself asserts, "It has to be our best vintage ever."

Brunello: A Quest for Soul
2006 Poggio di Sotto Brunello di Montalcino
The Lowest Pricing in the U.S.

"This is a totally mesmerizing, sublime wine of the highest level."
- Antonio Galloni, Wine Advocate

Galloni published those words within the last 10 days, setting off something of a frenzy.

Which may prove to be frustrating for buyers because, as Galloni himself notes, “The only problem with these wines is their limited availability in the U.S.”

A "Wine of the Vintage"
(Around Half the Price of Its Peers)
2006 Conti Costanti Brunello di Montalcino
How Many Accolades Can You Fit in a 92-Word Review?

"A dazzling wine. The aromatics alone are haunting...nearly indescribable elegance...totally complete, harmonious...shaping up to be one of the wines of the vintage."
- Antonio Galloni, Wine Advocate

While our 2006 Brunello campaign is nearing its end, having found this parcel of wine and then reading that, I knew this was an offer I didn't want to miss.

Particularly considering the Costanti family's looong history with Brunello. The Costantis were actually among the first to set up shop in Montalcino, way back in 1555, and they've been touting "traditional" Brunello since the middle 1800s.

Soldera's Brunellos are simply like no others. They are uncompromising and traditional; Sangiovese that electrifies the palate with a super-fine acidity shot through layers of tongue-staining blackberries, purple wildflowers and mountains of tannin.

The Original. The Only.
2008 Sassicaia

Italy's "First Growth" at the most compelling price in the nation.

When it was first released to the public in 1968, Sassicaia sparked a revolution and spawned a riot of imitators - and thus an entire genre of wines that came to be known as "Super Tuscans." But NONE were - or have ever been - able to match the awesome breed, refinement and class that Sassicaia possesses.

The 2007 Bellus Girasole has onlyjust been released, but we've already experienced considerable demand after the wine was featured in the likes of Food & Wine, USA Today, and Women's Wear Daily.  Crush is currently the only retailer to carry the inaugural vintage of this nationally acclaimed wine.

Castello dei Rampolla's duo of "Super Tuscans" is perhaps the last great secret of this region. While the rock star wines like Sassicaia and Massetto get all the attention, Rampolla quietly does their own thing. They were one of the first estates in Tuscany to go biodynamic; in 2009 they finished their transition to cement and amphora for aging the wines.

The 2006 Cerbaie Brunello di Montalcino represents exactly this sort of "Brunello in its purest form."

As Antonio Galloni states in his enthusiastic review of the 06 Cerbaie, "This is a classy, elegant wine." This is also one of our own absolute favorite expressions of the 2006 vintage in Brunello, and it's a wine that will improve in the cellar for up to 10 years and beyond, so we've provided special "collector" six-pack pricing that today brings the 06 Cerbaie down to $44.95 a bottle. This is extremely sharp pricing: I'm not sure you can find a better, more drinkable and ageworthy 06 Brunello available under $50.

Poggio di Sotto makes our style of Brunello: They thrive above all else on finesse and harmony. We are very selective with our Brunello offers, and Poggio di Sotto is always on the top of the list for exactly this reason.
