  • Online Exclusive
  1. $80
This superb single-vineyard bottling from the heart of Bussia was macerated on the skins for a whopping 90 days. It’s a breathtaking expression of Barolo, with intense Nebbiolo scents of rose, truffle and leather. The palate shows vibrant black cherry, truffle, spice, carob, pastry cream and balsamic herb notes and has remarkable depth and complexity. This is…  — K.O.  (9/1/2013)

Cavallotto 2007 Vignolo Riserva Nebbiolo (Barolo)

  • Editors' Choice
  • Online Exclusive
  1. $98
This is a stunning and vibrant Barolo that defies the heat of the vintage thanks to 47-year-old vines, amazing terroir and noninvasive winemaking. It shows floral aromas of violet layered with spice and truffle, while the palate delivers rich wild cherry, mint and cinnamon. This already shows excellent complexity, but it’s still young. Drink after 2022.  — K.O.  (9/1/2013)

S.A. Prüm 2010 Wehlener Sonnenuhr Trockenbeerenauslese Riesling (Mosel)

  • Cellar Selection
  • Online Exclusive
  1. $440
This stunning TBA is a powerhouse of superripe peach, mango and orange flavors. The palate feels smooth and rich, with honey and marmalade flavors, but it’s ethereally light, with a dusty minerality and shrieking lemon acidity that reverberates on the finish. Gorgeous now, but should develop an earthy, honeyed intensity over the next decade.  — A.I.  (9/1/2013)

Glaetzer 2010 Amon-Ra Unfiltered Shiraz (Barossa Valley)

  • Cellar Selection
  1. $110
Despite this wine’s weight and richness, it retains a superb sense of balance and structure. Firm acids and tannins support the blueberry fruit, while savory notes of mocha and roasted meat provide added dimension. Give it a few years in the cellar and drink it from 2015–2025.  — J.C.  (9/1/2013)

Robert Weil 2010 Kiedrich Gräfenberg Trockenbeerenauslese Riesling (Rheingau)

  • Cellar Selection
  1. $672
Honey and smoke mix seductively on this piercingly bright yet intensely rich TBA full of orange marmalade and sweet peach nectar. It’s unctuously honeyed but delicately textured on the palate. It’s earthy minerality should deepen considerably over the next ten years.  — A.I.  (9/1/2013)

Hailing from 70-year-old vines in Cannubi, the most storied vineyard in Barolo, this stunning wine is intensely perfumed with rose petal, violet, sage and eucalyptus notes.

Cavallotto still travels under the radar, but is one of the finest Barolo producers. Its Bricco Boschis is bold and beautiful, offering intense rose and berry aromas layered with eucalyptus.

Arione shows its Serralunga d’Alba pedigree via classic aromas of black cherry, leather, truffle and rose petal. The palate delivers lush wild-cherry flavors and hints of truffle, mint and the vineyard’s hallmark licorice. It’s beautifully balanced, with firm but ripe tannins and just enough freshness, and is simply a gorgeous Barolo.  — K.O.  (9/1/2013)
