Banfi - Moscadello di Montalcino Florus
Lovely dessert wine, very similar to Vin Santo. We tried it with "cantucci" dipped in it. Delicious!
Corte Majoli - Amarone della Valpolicella
Overripe grapes and aging in barrels makes this a great wine. The low acidity and a high alcohol content (15.5) makes it easier to drink with spicy food or dessert.
Casale Triocco - Sagrantino di Montefalco
Probably my favorite Italian wine. Only 200 acres planted of this indigenous grape in Umbria. A great, big but elegant wine which improves with age.
Roagna - Barolo Riserva la Rocca E la Pira
This is one of the best expressions of Barolo. You have to wait 20 years but it's worth it. Decanted for 3 hours before dinner, very elegant, not overpowering, luscious and complex. It kept improving over night.
Poggione - Brunello di Montalcino
Very Good Brunello. Consistent label. Decanted for 2 hours, color showed its age but a beautiful aroma and a lovely complexity made it very enjoyable.
