This Experience Includes:

  • 12 bottles of Italian red wine shipped to your home
  • Descriptive notes for each wine
  • Video presentation and sommelier guided tasting
  • Winspire booking & concierge service

Enjoy a unique assortment of 12 bottles of Italian red wines, each with high critic scores chosen by our sommelier team.  These labels and vintages are difficult to find in the US. You'll receive descriptive notes for each wine along with a video presentation and guided tasting with our sommelier.

The Classic Tuscany selection includes 3 bottles of each of the following wines:

Brunello di Montalcino Verbena 2015
The color is a magnificent ruby red with garnet reflections. The nose is a sequence of aromas that ranges from ripe plum, leather, and spices to chocolate and licorice. Includes lovely earthy notes as well. In the mouth it is soft and balanced. Due to the young age the tannins are still vibrant but are already pleasant. Beautiful acidity makes this Brunello easy to drink despite its robustness.

Poggio Rosso San Felice Gran Selezione 2011 
“Poggio Rosso” is the perfect exemplar of a Tuscan red. Charming but traditional, elegant but robust. The color is an intense ruby red. The aromas are vigorous, with notes of red berries and violets at first impact, then licorice, leather, and spice in the background with an balsamic note. The chewy, concentrate paltae deliver juicy black cherry, mature, vanilla cinnamon and moche. Delicious and silky in the mouth, with tannins that are elegant and fine, and acidity that supports the structure of the wine.

Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Montemercurio Messagero 2015 
In the glass, the color is an intense red ruby. Aromas consist of typical ripe berries and plum, followed by hints of vanilla and light licorice, cloves and black pepper. In the mouth the wine is round, smooth, ideal tannins, not too dry and not too sour with a long finish. Absolutely easy to drink, both clean and crisp. Il Messaggero is most certainly a champion of balance. A wine well done, very versatile in food pairing. Of course it goes well with red meat and game, but also a lovely dish of pasta with an important meat sauce ragù can stand up to this elegant wine without being overpowered.

Fogio 38 Fornacelle 2015 
Foglio 38 is a pure Cabernet Franc, aged in the barrique for 18 months. It stands out for its elegance and the dynamicity of the sip. Dense ruby red color, with purple reflections. The nose highlights balsamic and herbal notes, mint essence, juniper and Mediterranean shrub. The taste is intense, yet maintains a graceful structure and linear development, similar to a Margaux wine. It tapers in progression, while enjoying a great aromatic amplification in the finish of the mouth, revealing the precious contribution of acidity.

Includes door-to-door shipping in styrofoam boxes, taxes, duties and insurance.  Delivery time is approximately 15-20 days. Once the shipment has cleared U.S. customs, a tracking number will be issued and forwarded to your attention in order for you to follow the status of the shipment. The package will need to be received and signed for by a person over the age of 21.  Wine cannot be shipped to P.O. Boxes and to the states of Alabama, Arkansas, Utah, and Mississippi.

The Special Tuscany selection includes 3 bottles of each of the following wines:

Brunello di Montalcino Santa Giulia 2015 
2015 was a very hot year in contrast to a rainy 2014. This vintage has been classified with a maximum of votes, however the warmer weather particularly helped the colder areas, rather than the ones more exposed to heat, where the alcohol and characteristic aromas of cooked fruit prevail just a tad too much. Instead, here we find perfect balance. Ruby red in the glass, with the presence of soft garnet highlights, typical of Brunello. Wonderful nose of cherry and leather, with nuances of earthy notes that are brought forth with oxidation. Elegant oak notes. This wine is a young exemplar, but already has the making of a champion.

Brunello di Montalcino  Anno Domini 1441 Castello Tricerchi 2015 
The Brunello is a clear and intense ruby red color, with garnet reflections. On the nose it is complex, intense, and balsamic, carrying notes of ripe cherry, chocolate and tobacco. The spices are slight, never invasive and the flowery hints of violet are lovely. In the mouth we find the same fruity notes, magnificently balanced by the minerality. The tannins are smooth and the acidity pleasant. Long and juicy finish. An excellent wine with huge potential of developing over the years.

Poggio Alle Nane Le Mortelle Antinori 2017 
The wine shows up in the glass with a deep red color. The nose is striking for its varietal character with sensations of ripe black berry fruits and uniting notes of mountain herbs, black currant and thyme. The hints of licorice, violets, balsamic and floral complete the picture, in total harmony with sweet spices. The palate is rich and elegant, potent, with lovely, silky tannins and a long and persistent finish. The wine closes with lovely notes of bitter chocolate, wild cherries, tobacco and licorice.

Merlot Quintore Toscana IGT Gualdo del Re 2016 
The intense ruby red is immediately striking in the glass. The nose promptly seduces without exaggeration with a harmonious and elegant mix of succulent blackberries and enveloping marasca cherry jam that together give sweetness and freshness. The vanilla note opens the way to a light spicy texture followed by hints of mint, chocolate and balsamic impressions. The entry into the mouth is soft but gradually becomes dynamic, without ever being too much. The tannins are dense and velvety. The freshness supports the sip until the long finish returns, which is characterized by pleasant spicy and menthol. Even for those who consider a pure Merlot a little bit tricky, with its buttery and sweet seductions, will be pleasantly surprised by the momentum of this wine that leaves the mouth clean in a way that only some Bordelaise Merlots are able to do.

The Taste of Italy selection includes 3 bottles of each of the following wines:

Brunello di Montalcino San Giacomo 2015 
Their wine is solid, elegant and well balanced. The aromas are exactly what you would expect from a Brunello. It begins with violet, cherry and ripe plum then slowly the tertiary aromas begin to show up, bringing you tobacco, vanilla and licorice. The balsamic note arrives in the nose with delicacy and is never overwhelming. The earthy hints are supported by a nice minerality. The sip is enveloping, full and fresh. The tannins are well balanced and the wood aging adds the right roundness to the wine. The finish is long, clean and leaves a taste of red berries, making the mouth immediately ready for another sip.

Barolo Tenuta L'illuminata 2015 
The wine contains all of the emblematic characteristics of this spectacular grape variety harvested from one of the best plots in the world growing grapes. The color is ruby red with light orange reflections. The nose is clean and intense, with notes of cherry, plum jam, vanilla and hay. The taste is full, mineral, harmonious, and warm, with soft tannins and a persistent finish that is reminiscent of licorice and tobacco. The tannins are aggressive but fade quickly. A versatile and enjoyable wine.

Barbaresco Produttori del Barbaresco 2016 
This Barbaresco is an exceptional wine. It is a red that immediately proves itself to be top level. It is fine, with an elegant nose and spicy notes that anticipate a greatly structured palate, surrounded by silky tannins and never intrusive. In the glass, a beautiful garnet red with ruby highlights. The nose has intense scents of currant, blueberry and raspberry. In the mouth, the wine is deep and warm, the tannins are strong although sometimes jittery, but that is charisma. An interesting vintage with amazing potential for aging, in part thanks to the superb acidity. A must-try wine!

Amarone Della Valpolicella Corte Giara 2016 
The wine has a deep, impenetrable ruby red color, a result of the accumulation of polyphenols caused by the initial withering of the grapes. The bouquet impresses with its powerful fruit scents, boasting an extraordinary prevalence of ripe cherries and marasca cherries. These fruit notes merge with pleasant peppery spices and cloves. The sip is enveloping, intense and soft. The traditional acidic note combines well with the softness of the fruit, forming a pleasant contrast.

The Best of Italy selection includes 3 bottles of each of the following wines:

Brunello di Montalcino Biondi Santi 2011 
The color is a vibrant, bright ruby red. Aromas are intense, rich and very complex. A warm and embracing vintage, the bouquet of Brunello 2011 has an enchanting medley of generous fruity and flowery notes, including hints of black cherries, blood orange and wildflowers. The elegant yet muscular structure is driven by an attractive, savory freshness and by silky tannins which lead towards a warm finish that lingers in the mouth. Simply a masterpiece!  

Barolo Lazzarito Mirafiore 2015 
A Barolo of typical garnet red color, it offers an elegant note of rose petals and cherry followed by a stream of spices such as nutmeg, bay leaf, black pepper, as well as ripe red fruit and licorice. In the mouth it is rich and full bodied, with powerful and harmonious tannins and a vibrant acidity that favors a long finish. You will recognize in this wine some aromas that are typical of the land it is produced in, such as hazelnuts, underbrush, truffles and mushrooms. The structure of the tannins is on the verge of perfection. This wine will definitely make you stop and appreciate every single sip.

Amarone Della Valpolicella Ca'Rugate 2015 
Ca’ Rugate is expressed in a fascinating bouquet of berries and black fruit, dried flowers, anise, licorice and hints of black cherries in alcohol, with a spicy, earthy finish. In the mouth it is dense, warm and gentle, certainly not vertical, nor sharp, but rather round and soft. These characteristics make it a wine with an international taste. It finishes with an excellent persistence and an aftertaste reminiscent of the flavor of the dried grapes from which the vinification process began.

Sagrantino di Montefalco Caprai Valdimaggio 2015 
Valdimaggio has become one of the symbols of the winery. 2015 was a generous year, and this wine displays a great personality that is intense, robust, and almost rough. In the nose it is extremely rich, with red fruit jam, sweet spices, and cherry in alcohol. The notes of violets are elegant, gracious, and the freshness is remarkable. As any respectable Sagrantino, the tannins are strong but already manageable despite the young age, however it leaves a long persistence in the mouth, drying it out. All you need is to match this wine with succulent dishes that encourage saliva production, and the magic pairing begins.

Includes door-to-door shipping in styrofoam boxes, taxes, duties and insurance.  Delivery time is approximately 15-20 days. Once the shipment has cleared U.S. customs, a tracking number will be issued and forwarded to your attention in order for you to follow the status of the shipment.
