Christmas Wine Recommendations from Marc’s Cellar

BV Red Blend Limited Release 2012, $14.99 This selection from Beaulieu Vineyard is a bit mysterious. You won’t find very much on the internet about this hidden gem. Soft and bright, with flavors of cherry pie and cranberries, and undertones of blackberry and cedar with a large finish. This is our Best Buy for 2016 at only $14.99/bottle.

Villa Antinori Tignanello 2013, $114.99 The original Super Tuscan. Ranked #8 on Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2016 and a 97 rating by James Suckling. Intensely ruby red in color with purple highlights. Ripe red fruit with notes of vanilla, chocolate, and leather imparted from the oak.

Terrazas Cabernet Sauvignon Single Vineyard Los Aromos 2012, $39.99 Herbal blackberry aromas with notes of cedar and licorice. Serious tannins with flavors of ripe blackberry & peppery spice. 91 Points from Wine Enthusiast.

Villa Antinori Toscano, $19.99 James Suckling reviews “A silky and delicious red with tile, berry and walnut aromas and flavors. Medium body, firm tannins and a fresh and clean finish. Linear and structured. Affordable quality Super Tuscan.” 91 Points.

Tenuta di Renieri Chianti Classico 2012, $14.99 Marc’s favorite Chianti! Aged 12 months in Allier Oak barriques for a deep ruby-red color, with aromas of ripe cherries and plums, and nuances of toasted oak and violets. 100% Sangiovese grapes.
