If you know anything of Tuscan wines, you know Tignanello and Solaia… the crème de la crème of Super Tuscans. Well, the winemaker behind those legends, Stefano Di Blasi, also makes this epic Bolgheri Superiore, made exclusively from Bordeaux grapes. $25 off the retail price, in the amazing 2016 vintage…this is a can’t miss!

A blend of 40% cabernet sauvignon, 30% merlot, 20% cabernet franc, and 10% petit verdot, this wine explodes with black cherries, baked mulberry pie, candied violets, graphite, and dried lavender. A rich, luxuriously textured wine, the full-bodied power is honed by vibrant acidity and supple tannins. TWENTY FIVE DOLLARS, people!

For a wine of this pedigree with these kinds of scores (be sure to read the reviews below), this is the sort of deal we just dream of. Only a few steps away from the Tyrrhenian Sea, in the middle of Maremma Livornese on the Etruscan coast, stands the Castagneto Carducci vineyard. Situated at the base of a series of amphitheater-like hills lies the cradle of Campo alle Comete. At 26 hectares in the Bolgheri DOC - these plantings of cabernet sauvignon, merlot, cabernet franc, and petit verdot thrive on the loose, sandy, clay and limestone soils under the influence of the warm Tuscan sun. At a spry seven years young, you can drink this now or anytime over the next decade. We have little doubt you'll be joining us in declaring this a top new find for the ultra-competitive and historic Tuscan region. What a steal…while it lasts!

94 Wine Spectator -
Intense and pure, with a beam of black cherry, wild herbs and spice piercing a dark abyss of finely wrought tannins. Terrific acidity keeps this fresh and focused, while the finish evokes chocolate, ripe fruit, spice and mineral notes. Merlot, Syrah, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Best from 2020 through 2032.
93 Wine Enthusiast -
A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Petit Verdot, this offers enticing scents of red and black-skinned berry, fragrant purple flower and a whiff of Mediterranean scrub. On the fresh, elegant palate, polished tannins support cassis, plum and raspberry alongside culinary spice notes.
92 Decanter -
Feudi San Gregorio's new estate in Tuscany is already producing fine results. Thanks to the 2016 vintage, this Bolgheri Superiore displays a restrained character with earthiness, camphor ash and minty notes over a base of cassis aroma and flavour. The palate is quite warming but otherwise balanced, with extremely good extraction and firm yet ripe tannins typical of the vintage. It has quite sour acidity and lacks a bit of complexity, but the very good extraction will lead to a good evolution.
90 James Suckling -
This is a full, ripe, Bolgheri red with a ton of blackberries and some nice tannins on the mid-palate, but the finish is already quite soft.
