Just in time for Mother’s Day weekend, we’ve opened up the wine cellar in our downtown Minneapolis store and put our best selections out on the shelves. See what we’ve found and stop by today to pick up a bottle before we run out.
Castiglion del Bosco Brunello di Montalcino 2013
94 Points Vinous
Luminous medium-dark red. The captivating nose combines sour red cherry, violet, coconut, tobacco, minerals and a hint of white pepper. Densely packed and youthful but very fresh and lively; this already boasts a silky texture and considerable early appeal owing to its noteworthy sweetness of fruit. Subtle notes of red berries, herbs, graphite and flowers carry through into the rising, very long, vibrant finish. A knockout Brunello that further confirms winemaker Cecilia Leoneschi’s talent at making exceptionally good, very classic Brunellos. Well done.
Uccelliera Brunello di Montalcino 2013
94 Points Wine Advocate
I never have enough praise for the excellent work achieved at Uccelliera. The 2013 Brunello di Montalcino is another proud notch in Andrea Cortonesi's belt. This is a fine and elegant wine that wraps smoothly over the palate. It also has an immediate and accessible personality that means you don't need to wait too long to enjoy it. The wine is redolent of dark fruit, spice, balsam herb, licorice and pressed flowers. You get loads of variety character.
