Welcome to UnCork-It. UnCork-It is the brainchild of owners George and Peter Stellas, both Chicago natives. The Stellas family has been in the grocery business for almost 80 years in Chicago and their stores have always been at the cutting edge of retail excellence. In March 2003 George took over running his downtown store liquor department and he immediately saw the potential and need to offer his customers the best prices in the city, yet in a very clean sophisticated environment. "The demographics of the wine and liquor customer has changed in the last few years and we wanted to build a store that addressed the changing customer base." Thus UnCork-It was born! – Description from markomkc

  • Felsina Fontalloro 2000


    Assaggiato ad Ottobre 2011.Non una annata grandiosa, un colore bellissimo, granato intenso, bella evoluzione, sottobosco, tartufo, il famigerato goudron, un bel fruttato (marmellata) spezie, liquirizia, una nota di ossidazione di smalto. Finissimo anche dopo 11 anni.In bocca più evoluto che al naso, tannini leggerissimi, perde un pò di freschezz... Read More

  • Sterling Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2003


    Whoever recommended drinking this vintage between 2004 and 2007 was way off the mark. I purchased the last four bottles from a retailer several years ago and opened the first of those this evening to accompany my steak au poivre vert. It was a wonderful experience; the wine was lush with a fragrant bouquet, full-bodied, complex and perfectly bal... Read More

  • Corino Vigneto Arborina Barolo DOCG 2005


    My first experience with Barolo. O......M......G! I've been on a roller coaster ride with Italian wines. Some have been to die for....some I couldn't get through a glass. This is among the top wines I've ever had. It's tannic, it's fruit forward, it's smooth as silk. The combination I thought was near impossible to acheive. I was fortunate enoug... Read More
