Jun. 25, 2002: VILLA POGGIO SALVI Brunello di Montalcino 1997 (94 points, $60)

Outstanding Brunello in '97 is the norm, as this incredibly rich Sangiovese proves. Superripe aromas of dried fruits and hints of spice. Like a top Amarone. Full-bodied, thick and rich, with round tannins and masses of fruit. Best after 2004. 4,580 cases —James Suckling

Jun. 25, 2002: ALTESINO Brunello di Montalcino Montosoli 1997 (98 points, $89)

Tied for the top Brunello in the superb '97 vintage, the Montosoli from Altesino rivals the classic '90 Montosoli. Complex aromas of grilled meat and cherry, with hints of cedar and tobacco turning to plums and flowers. Full-bodied and extremely well-stru —James Suckling

Jun. 17, 2002: SIRO PACENTI Brunello di Montalcino 1997 (97 points, $45)

Tuscany excelled in the '97 vintage, and the last wines to be released -- the Brunello di Montalcinos -- are a riveting group. Winemaker Giancarlo Pacenti has made a wine that is like finely woven silk. Incredible texture to this. Subtle and complex red, —James Suckling

Jun. 15, 2002: BURGESS Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Vintage Selection 1999 (91 points, $36)

Ripe, rich and polished, with a tasty array of complex currant, plum and wild berry flavors that are sharply focused, long and detailed on the finish. Tannins are sufficient for cellaring, yet neatly woven into the texture. A beautifully crafted Cabernet. —James Laube

Jun. 14, 2002: G. ROUMIER Bonnes Mares 1999 (94 points, $110)

The '99 vintage in Burgundy offers pure fruit, and wines that will provide good short- to -medium-term cellaring. This late-release from Roumier is a blockbuster Pinot that remains elegant. Thick in texture, black in color, it delivers much character -- e —Per-Henrik Mansson
