2016 Kirkland Signature Chianti Classico Riserva

We always love to see the newest vintage of this Kirkland classic arrive in warehouses. Ironically, just a few months ago we saw an unexpected restock of the 2015 vintage in stores around the Atlanta area, which disappeared pretty fast. It goes to show, you just never know what you will find at Costco. Good …

2015 Castello di Albola Chianti Classico

Editor’s Note: Obviously, these are crazy times to be shopping at Costco, and every trip means braving long lines like we’ve never seen before. I’ve made a few trips to purchase wine (and other staples) but depending on how long this situation remains we might not be able to acquire wine regularly to maintain our …

2015 Kirkland Signature Barolo

Several readers alerted us last week that this new Kirkland offering was hitting Costco store shelves, and I was able to find it this weekend. The price for this Barolo is $19.99, which falls right in the ballpark where we see many higher end Kirkland wines (Pauillac Bordeaux, Chateauneuf, Brunello, Champagne).  In each case the …

2016 Castello di Monsanto Chianti Classico Riserva

This is an interesting vintage of a perennial favorite Costco wine. Also, one that tends to see a wide distribution, so hopefully readers will be able to find it in their local warehouse. Historically, this wine has been at Costco for under $20. The last vintage was $17.89, but this year we’re seeing a price …

2015 Allegrini Palazzo Della Torre

This bottle is an absolute steal at Costco. Not only is it a delicious wine, but Costco’s price is unbeatable. Online this one runs as high as $25, and at best around $17-$18. Costco’s price is $12.99. Run don’t walk to pick these up. It’s also the perfect winter red, just pleasant throughout, great fruit, …

2014 Kirkland Signature Series Brunello di Montalcino

Here’s one of the most anticipated Kirkland wines of the year, that generally comes out in the November time frame every year.  We’ve followed this one for every vintage since it’s incredible 2010 vintage debut, and each year since, we haven’t found the wine to be as good as that first vintage. Here’s how we’ve …

2018 Kirkland Signature Pinot Grigio Friuli

It’s amazing how wines can hit you differently. We found the 2017 vintage of this Kirkland Pinot Grigio to be rather bland; drinkable sure, but not a lot going on. We scored it 85 points. Either the producer stepped it up a notch, or we got the last one wrong, because this 2018 vintage was …
