Wine Gift Set Includes:
- 2016 or 2017 Renato Ratti Marcenasco Barolo
Garnet red. A bouquet with traces of licorice and tobacco. Full flavored, full-bodied and elegant.
Rated 97 Points: Wine Enthusiast - Iris, rose, botanical herb and dark spice aromas lead the way in this fragrant red, along with an enticing whiff of graphite. Elegantly structured and boasting youthful tension, the vibrant palate delivers juicy Morello cherry, crushed raspberry, cinnamon and star anise framed in taut, refined tannins. It’s balanced and focused, with bright acidity

Brunello di Montalcino 2015 shows an intense ruby red color with garnet reflections, the classic Brunello aromas are clear and bursting, including notes of undergrowth, small red berries and hints of violet. On the palate it develops in an infinite progression, with velvety tannins, it is characterized by excellent persistence and an elegant finish.
Rated 97 Points: James Suckling - Wonderful aromas of flowers, plums, terracotta and white pepper. Intense, yet ever so subtle. Medium to full body, firm and silky tannins and a long and intense finish. Shows excellent length.
- 2017 Prunotto Barbaresco
Barbaresco 2017 is an intense garnet red in color. The nose of this red wine is complex with aromas of red fruit and spicy notes. The palate is full and velvety with a persistent finish.
Rated 93 Points: James Suckling - Delicate floral and red fruit aromas and flavors peek through the eucalyptus, tar and tobacco notes and muscular profile of this red, though it will take some time for them to emerge and occupy center stage. This version is balanced, elegant and long in the end.
