The Baroncini is a wonderful lush Brunello that is classic Sangiovese. The soft ripeness of the wine makes it drinkable now and it will age gracefully for another 5-8 years. Perfect accompaniment to hearty pasta or pork dishes and the classic accompaniment to Wild Boar!

Saint Emilion Grand Cru
2002 was a hugely successful vintage throughout Bordeaux and the greatest value can be found with these lesser known châteaux who have produced their finest wines in this vintage. This broad shouldered claret has been mature for a decade but is still drinking well. A traditional, savoury and plump claret that is exceptional value for money and comes highly recommended.

Pauillac 1er Grand Cru Classe,
*** 94 Points Robert Parker ***
*** 94 Points Wine Journal ***
Reviews: "A brilliant offering and a candidate for wine of the vintage, this is classic Lafite that reminded me somewhat of the 1976, although the vintage conditions were completely different. This is a medium-weight, quintessentially elegant style of Lafite with notes of lead pencil shavings/graphite along with black currants, plums, and crushed rocks/mineral. Wonderfully pure, dense, with a deep ruby/purple color and loads of fruit, definition, and a long finish, this is a brilliant, elegant Lafite Rothschild that builds incrementally in the mouth and has more power and density than it initially seems.
