Monte Schiavo

Ruviano Classico Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi Verdicchio 2019

Delectable Wine
9.1

Spicy and savory, with a whiff of wild herbs and lemon zest that completes a gorgeous bouquet. Silky on the palate, as ripe melon, hints of lime, minerals and juicy acids keep things lively and fresh, tapering off with inner florals and a hint of sour citrus. $14.00 (Eric Guido, Vinous, September 2020) — 5 days ago

Le Cinciole

Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2017

Delectable Wine
9.3

Le Cinciole’s 2017 Chianti Classico is a huge overachiever. Dark red cherry, spice, new leather and sweet pipe tobacco infuse the 2017 with tremendous resonance and character, while soft, silky contours add to its immediacy and sheer appeal. Vinified in concrete and aged in cask. $25.00 (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, August 2020) — a month ago

Bisci

Verdicchio di Matelica 2019

Delectable Wine
9.0

Honied florals, crisp yellow apple and hints of citrus set the stage for soothing textures that balance ripeness of fruit against stimulating mineral tones. A sweet-and-sour sensation creates further intrigue, as well as lending a drink-me-now persona to the wine. $18.00 (Eric Guido, Vinous, August 2020) — 2 months ago

Gård Vintners

Freya White Wine Columbia Valley 2019

Delectable Wine
9.0

This rich but vibrant bone-dry blend of Roussanne and Viognier offers uncanny complexity and intensity for its gentle price. Aromas and flavors of citrus and stone fruits are accented by kiwi, mint and lime blossom, with firm acidity extending the fruit through a subtly long, lively finish. $16.00 (Stephen Tanzer, Vinous, July 2020) — 2 months ago

Podere il Palazzino

Argenina Chianti Classico Sangiovese 2016

Delectable Wine
9.3

The 2016 Chianti Classico Argenina is fabulous. Dark cherry, gravel, sage, mint and leather bring out the darker side of Sangiovese in a Chianti Classico that captures all the pedigree of this great vintage. The 2016 is intense in the glass, and yet retains so much Sangiovese translucence. $24.00 (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, September 2020) — 14 days ago

J. Hofstätter

Blauburgunder Pinot Nero Meczan 2018

Delectable Wine
9.0

This Alto Adige Pinot Noir packs a lot of varietal character. Peppery herbs, savory spice, notes of bright cherry and strawberry waft up from the glass. Cool-toned, pure and precise, it balances ripe fruit with a hint of fine tannin, while promising several years of positive evolution. $21.00 (Eric Guido, Vinous, August 2020) — a month ago

Proprieta Sperino

Rosa del Rosa Coste della Sesia Nebbiolo Rosé 2019

Delectable Wine
9.3

A stunning opening reveals depths of ripe peach and strawberry, with hints of cumin, ginger, dried orange and roses. Silky textures tug at the cheeks as zesty acids settle in, then sooth through sweet liquid florals and ripe fruit. A blend of Nebbiolo and Vespolina. $19.00 (Eric Guido, Vinous, August 2020) — 2 months ago

Margerum

Sybarite Happy Canyon of Santa Barbara Sauvignon Blanc 2019

Delectable Wine
9.3

A rush of citrus, floral and tomato leaf aromatics lead into beautifully sculpted orchard fruit flavors, nicely balancing vivacity with depth. The Sybarite offers plenty of bright Sauvignon character (without veering into the green/grassy end of the spectrum) and tons of sheer appeal. $25.00 (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, September 2020) — 20 days ago

Fattoria Le Terrazze

Rosso Conero Montepulciano 2015

Delectable Wine
9.1

A fruit-forward yet wonderfully fresh red, showing a mix of cherry, raspberry, sweet herbs and spice. Cooling minerals and earth tones balance the warmth of the 2015 vintage nicely. Vinified in large neutral oak. $18.00 (Eric Guido, Vinous, August 2020) — a month ago

Domaine Bernard Baudry

Chinon Cabernet Franc Rosé 2019

Delectable Wine
9.3

Baudry’s 2019 Chinon Rosé offers suave, mineral-accented aromas of fresh red berries and tangerine on the sharply focused nose. The palate is dry and energetic, with sappy strawberry, bitter cherry and orange zest flavors. Closes long and silky, with a faint touch of anise. $25.00 (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, July 2020) — 2 months ago
