93 points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, February 2018

Tasted from barrel, the 2013 Brunello di Montalcino La Cerbaiola is a fine and delicate expression. The bouquet opens gracefully to show pressed violets, blanched almond, wild spice and crisp forest berry. Like most of Salvioni's wines, this newest release is all about those tiny details. All those miniature components come together to build volume and intensity as the wine settles firmly over the palate. This vintage is slightly more streamlined and thin, yet the polished intensity of the mouthfeel is satisfying and long regardless.

The 2013 Brunello di Montalcino will be bottled in May. No Brunello was made in 2014. The 2017 Rosso di Montalcino will be released in 2019. During my visit this year with Alessia Salvioni, I had a chance to taste her 2015 and 2016 Brunellos from barrel. We can look forward to some fantastic wines once we get past next year's void. Keep an eye on Salvioni's 2015 Brunello in particular. This wine is already showing a beautiful sense of volume and aromatic complexity with balsam and delicate mineral definition. No Rosso di Montalcino was made in 2015, thus allowing all the fruit to go to the Brunello instead. This boutique estate only produces an average of 12,000 bottles of Brunello per year, and those quickly end up in the hands of collectors and die-hard Brunello enthusiasts.

OUR STORY

FOUNDERS AND BACKGROUND

Founders Marco Prete and Cristina Fragni have spent a lifetime in close contact with the top European winemakers and cellar masters, and have spent decades on their shared passion for learning, tasting, and even assisting in the production of fine wines.


After relocating to NYC in 2013, they found that many of their favorite vintages were not available in the US. Inspired by a lack of available inventory on the usual channels, they decided that it was essential to them personally and professionally to create a bespoke, world-class collection of fine wines available for US import.


The Wines of Kings collection of exquisite wines reflects the founders’ obsession with premium wines that are made authentically.
