Tenuta Tignanello, Tignanello IGT Toscana 2018

"This wine brought to mind precise imagery of tailcoats, striped dress pants, wingtip collar shirts and other gentlemen's fashion choices from the Roaring Twenties. Sporting a retro but classic personality, the Marchesi Antinori 2018 Tignanello is quite the dapper and jovial wine that hits the market just as much of the world is emerging from a dark chapter of lockdowns and coronavirus curfews. I love the optimism that springs bright with such clarity and detail from within this blend of Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. The 2016 vintage was a benchmark for sure, but I prefer the 2018, thanks to that tinge of nostalgia or emotion that is so deftly rendered in this cool, long growing season."- Monica Larner, The Wine Advocate

Castello ColleMassari Melacce Montecucco Vermentino 2020

R225.00 inc. VAT
Castello ColleMassari Melacce Montecucco Vermentino 2020, "Sweet apples, pears, white flowers and hints of candied lime create an inviting bouquet as the 2020 Vermentino Melacce Montecucco blossoms in the glass. This is soft, round and soothing, with white stone fruits and minerals under an air of pretty inner florals. It tapers off fresh and honeyed with a flourish of salty minerals that adds wonderful contrasts. The 2020 may not have the energy of the 2019, but it’s a fine effort all the same." - Eric Guido, Vinous

Fèlsina Vin Santo del Chianti Classico 2009 (375ml)

R525.00 inc. VAT
"Opening to a dark amber color and syrupy rich concentration, the Fèlsina 2009 Vin Santo del Chianti Classico (packaged in a 375-milliliter bottle) is another beautiful dessert wine that captures the unique spirit of Tuscany. Toasted chestnut, caramel, apricot and honey peel off the enormous and far-reaching bouquet. The acidity is spot-on and totally cancels out any residual heaviness you might expect. This is another traditional Vin Santo that is totally out of this world."- Monica Larner, The Wine Advocate

Fèlsina Chianti Classico Riserva Rancia 2017

R795.00 inc. VAT
"The 2017 Chianti Classico Riserva Rancia is incredibly polished and sophisticated. Silky tannins give the 2017 its racy, sleek personality. Over the last year, the 2017 has really settled into a gorgeous place. There is plenty of vintage 2017 intensity, but Rancia is distinctly medium in body and restrained. The wilder side of Sangiovese, one of the signatures of Rancia and Fèlsina more broadly, tastes a bit baked out. I can't wait to see how the 2017 develops over the coming years and decades." - Antonio Galloni., Vinous

Fèlsina Fontalloro IGT Toscana 2018

R850.00 inc. VAT
"The 2018 Fontalloro is bright, floral and full of energy. In most vintages, Fontalloro is quite open, but the 2018 is especially nervy and taut. That won't be an issue in time, of course, but readers should plan on being patient. Sangiovese is so expressive here. A whole range of floral and savory accents lingers on the close." - Antonio Galloni, Vinous
