2010 highly rated Brunello!

2010 Brunello di Montalcino
All of the Critics agree 2010 is a watershed vintage for Brunello di Montalcino. All of our pre-orders are finally starting to land and we have an amazing array of 2010 Brunello for now, though many are selling out fast.

“The 2010 vintage is iconic for Montalcino and the reason is, simply put, it shows the amazing versatility of the Sangiovese grape with a level of clarity that I have never encountered.”-Monica Larner The Wine Advocate

“The 2010 vintage is a new benchmark for Tuscany’s icon wine, producing reds with wonderful intensity, structure, and energy”. -James Suckling

All wines are in stock now at our Forsyth location

2010 Poggio Antico Brunello di Montalcino...$83.99
A beautifully balanced and subtle Brunello with plum, berry, spice and fresh mahogany character. Full to medium body, fine tannins and a long finish. Very intense and harmonious. This is always a beauty.
Rated 97/100 James Suckling

2010 Poggio Antico Brunello Altero...$99.99
I love the subtle aromas of rose petal, dark fruit and perfume that follow through to a full body, with fine tannins and a beautiful finish. It's very fine and pretty. Savory and delicate. Such finesse here.
Rated 96/100 James Suckling

2010 Casanova di Neri White Label Brunello...$54.99
The outstanding 2010 Brunello di Montalcino gives you everything you want to see in a great wine, a great Tuscan wine. This monumental expression of Sangiovese delivers top-notch intensity with seamless integration of aromas. They span from dark fruit and Morello cherry to chocolate, spice, licorice, balsam herb and rosemary sprig. The energy and vitality of the vintage is locked perfectly within. This Brunello exhibits especially soft, silky tannins with long persistence and momentum. There is nothing out of place and the price tag is certainly not exaggerated for this level of excellence.
Rated 96/100 The Wine Advocate

2010 Casanova di Neri Tenuta Nuova Brunello...$99.99
(call for reservations on this one 314.727.8788)The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Tenuta Nuova is a protagonist of the vintage. The fruit is deep and dark with rich levels of extract, intensity and flavor. It goes far beyond your standard cherry and blackberry to include plum cake, spice bread and bacon-wrapped prune. Nothing is obvious or monochromatic about this wine. Everything is nuanced and ethereal. Tenuta Nuova is also distinguished by the linear mineral notes that are characteristic of this single-vineyard site. In 2010, those traits are especially well-defined and pronounced. The tannins reach a level of suppleness that is almost impossible to find in the sometimes prickly and acidic Sangiovese grape. If there is one thing Giacomo Neri has mastered, it is harvesting at optimal ripeness: He knows his property and his vines better than most and it shows. Collectors will want to put this wine aside ten years or longer.
Rated 100/100 The Wine Advocate

2010 Ciacci Pianrosso Brunello di Montalcino (1.5 Liter)...$139.99
(only available in Magnum)
Beautiful and delicate from the start, the 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Vigna di Pianrosso impresses for its depth and balance. The wine sees one more year of oak cask aging compared to the base Brunello and you can definitely sense the extra spice on the nose. Those delicate balsam notes of root beer, ginger and rosemary oil are still prominently on display. Rich spice, leather and tar are followed by dark fruit, prune, blackberry and cassis. The finish is graceful and silky, but its length remains impressive. This is a terrific effort that promises a steady evolution ahead.
Rated 97/100 The Wine Advocate
Rated 98/100 James Suckling

2010 Ciacci Brunello di Montalcino...$49.99 / 750ml

2010 Ciacci Brunello di Montalcino...$28.99 / 375ml
The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino represents a return to the traditional values of Montalcino. The bouquet is buoyant and bright with lingering tones of smoke, ash, balsam herb, licorice and soy sauce. Those kinds of aromas make Brunello such a wonderful wine and thankfully you get them in abundance here. Dry mineral and brimstone also give the wine a sense of focus, sharpness and cleanliness that is very appealing. The close is long, fine and polished. I look forward to retasting this bottle five years from now
Rated 94+/100 The Wine Advocate

2010 Canalicchio di Sopra Brunello di Montalcino...$74.99

The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino will blow you away. This is a delightful expression that boasts its extreme quality from the minute the wine is poured from the bottle. As you should expect, it just gets better and better with each additional minute in the glass. It opens to a vibrant dark ruby color and blackish-garnet hues. The bouquet is ever changing and shows a long succession of aromatic characteristics that rage from dark fruit, plum, spice, leather, licorice, red rose, balsam and grilled herb. It's textbook Brunello from a great vintage and this side of the appellation (on the northeastern side) performs fantastically in 2010. This beauty should hold fifteen years or more.
Rated 98/100 The Wine Advocate

2010 Scopone Brunello di Montalcino l'Olivare...$53.99
So much fruit and richness to this young Brunello with blueberry, dark chocolate and sea salt character. Full body with lots of rich fruit and layers of ripe tannins and character. Long and intense.
Rated 95/100 James Suckling

Abita Two Boots Collab with Birrifcio del Ducato...$4.49 / 22oz
Two Boots is Abita's first ever callaboration brew. We chose to collaborate with Birrificio del Ducato, an award-winning craft brewery located in Parma, Italy known for using natural and local ingredients.

Appropriately named for the shape of Louisiana and Italy, Two Boots is a Saison brewed with peppercorns, lemon balm and honey. This beer uses pilsner and wheat malts and is hopped with German Perle hops. We used raw honey from a local producer, Blood River Honey, to give the brew a very dry finish perfect for a Saison. The addition of the lemon balm, green and pink peppercorns enhance the overall flavor of the brew.

The honey is added in the brewhouse at the end of the boil and hte lemon balm and peppercorns are added in the aging tank. The result is a very balanced beer with the flavors of the malted barley, wheat, hops, yeast, herbs and honey all blended together for a refreshing brew.

Anchor Brewing Summer Wheat in CANS!

Now in CANS!

Anchor Summer Wheat...$8.99 / 6pk CANS
Released each year in advance of the summer season, Anchor Summer Beer (4.5% ABV) is an all-malt beer, with over 50% of its malt derived from malted wheat. It is fermented with a traditional top-fermenting “ale” yeast, yielding a clean, balanced flavor that highlights the refreshingly light flavor of malted wheat. The head is unusually abundant due to the natural protein deposits of wheat, with a thick consistency similar to meringue. For beer lovers, Anchor Summer Wheat is a lighter brew that doesn’t sacrifice tradition or character.

First brewed in the summer of 1984, Anchor Summer Wheat is the first American wheat beer to be brewed in modern times. Today Anchor Summer Wheat still boasts a crisp, clean and refreshing flavor, just as the very first batch did when brewed in 1984. Now available in summer-friendly packaging, Anchor Summer Wheat cans are perfect for enjoying with the season’s outdoor activities.

 Everything is cut fresh to order.

Brillat Savarin Bloomy Affine
Brillat-Savarin is a triple cream dessert cheese that was created by cheese-maker Henri Androuët in the 1930s. It is named after 19th century gastronome and epicure, Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin.  It is an industrial cheese produced by three dairies situated in the Ile de France region. Since classified as a triple cream cheese, Brillat-Savarin has a fat content of at least 75% achieved by adding rich, luscious cream to whole milk.
Young cheeses taste similar to fresh cheese but usually they are matured for about four to five weeks to develop more complex flavours.
A matured Brillat-Savarin has a typical white, bloomy rind with an interior paste that is buttery-white in colour. The texture is dense, moist, and slightly chalky with enough lusciousness and creaminess for a triple cream cheese. Flavours are of butter, salt and cream with hints of mushroom, nuts and truffles.

Ingredients: True to its European monastic heritage, Monks’ Ale is made with the finest of imported ingredients including three varieties of European hops (including German Hallertau and Czech Saaz) and European derived yeast. The malted barleys originate in Belgian and North America are also used in the brewing process for Monks’ Ale 
History: Monks’ Ale is an abbey style single ale brought to you by the monks of the Benedictine Monastery of Christ in the Desert. Following the ages old tradition of monastic brewers in Europe, this style is a light variation on a Belgian pale ale because it is made with pilsner hops. In the Medieval Ages, it was made from the third draw of the wort form the mash tun. Pairing: Monks’ Ale makes an excellent aperitif or first course accompaniment. It pairs well with lamb, pork, poultry, and seafood. It is a refreshing companion to any cheese or fruit.

ABV: 5.1% 
Style: Belgian Wheat (Wit)

Unmalted wheat and oats are also used in the brewing process for Monks’ Wit Suggested 
History: Wit beer, white beer, la bière blanche, or simply witte is a barley/wheat, top-fermented ale. The suspended yeast and wheat proteins and starches, which cause the beer to look hazy, or white when cold, gives the beer its name. It is descendant from medieval beers which were brewed not with hops but with “gruit” as a preservative and source of flavor since gruit was a blend of spices and other plants. Today the gruit consists mainly of coriander, sweet and bitter orange, and other spices. Most modern wit ales also use hops. The suspended yeast in the beer causes some continuing fermentation in the bottle. 
Pairing: Monks’ Wit makes an excellent aperitif or salad accompaniment. It pairs well with seafood, especially clams, mussels, and shellfish. After dinner it pairs especially well with light herbed cheeses or chèvre.

Flavors include toasted hazelnuts, raisins, caramel malt, and mild green apples with no phenols. The subdued, yet present hops create a light, crisp, refreshing, taste. The finish is dry with mild caramel and slight roastiness with mild green apples. The short finish invites another sip of this all-season dark signature ale.
