About Tenuta Sette Ponti

While its first vineyards were planted in 1935, Tenuta Sette Ponti came into its own in 1998 with the inaugural vintage of Crognolo, the estate’s... original Super-Tuscan release. Setti Ponti, which gets its name from the seven medieval bridges that span the Arno between Arezzo and Florence, may have been growing grapes for generations, but it took the vision of Antonio Moretti Cursari, Italian luxury goods magnate and the estate’s winemaker-owner, to start estate-bottling its wines. Spanning 250 acres in Chianti’s hills, Sette Ponti sports an ancient and unique Sangiovese clone, as well as limestone-rich clayey soils that nourish both native Tuscan and international grape varietals. Working with French consulting winemaker Gilbert Bouvet, Antonio has worked to create a range of wines, from very traditional Chianti bottlings to award-winning Super Tuscans. Antonio added to his portfolio, purchasing the 115-acre Poggio al Lupo estate in Maremma, and the 250-acre Feudo Maccari estate in Sicily, and his children have joined the family business, ensuring the future of this terrific, organically grown Tuscan estate.

About Agricola Punica

In the late 1990s, Giacomo Tachis and Antonello Pilloni of Cantina di Santadi joined forces with winemaking legend Marquis Nicolò Incisa della Rocchetta... and bought two estates in Sardinia’s Sulcis Meridionale region. Agricola Punica was born with the 2002 release of its flagship Barrua, and Montessu followed in 2005. Today, the 420-acre Agricola Punica estate, still jointly run by Pilloni and the Incisa della Rocchetta family, continues in the trailblazing path of the late, great Giacomo Tachis, crafting outstanding wines that marry the robust allure of Sardinia’s Carignano with the elegance of international-style grapes, even adding a white, Samas, that uses the same “Super-Sardinian” principle to tremendous results.

Tenuta San Guido Le Difese Toscana IGT 2022 750ml

Tenuta San Guido

Sassicaia is arguably Italy’s most famous bottle of wine, and its maker, Tenuta San Guido, is Italian wine aristocracy. Sassicaia and its Super-Tuscan... revolution changed the face of Italian wine — and it catapulted Tenuta San Guido into the highest echelon of wine producers. Today, Marchese Nicolò Incisa della Rocchetta continues in his father’s footsteps even as he prepares to hand over San Guido estate to his son, Sebastian Rosa. Over the years, Tenuta San Guido expanded its vineyards to encompass 190 acres, planted to Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, and the estate expanded its lineup to include “second” wine Guidalberto and entry-level Le Difese. Debuting with the 2000 vintage, Guidalberto holds fast to its ideal of accessibility upon release, but over the years, it has grown more refined, polished, and elegant. Le Difese, debuting with the 2003 vintage, does the work of the estate's "everyday" wine, but when Tenuta San Guido makes it, the “everyday” wine is still a reason to celebrate. Tenuta San Guido’s outstanding Guidalberto and Le Difese bottlings add even more luster to Italy’s premier Super-Tuscan estate.

Marchesi Antinori Le Mortelle

Marchesi Antinori Le Mortelle Poggio alle Nane Maremma Toscana 2019 750ml

About Marchesi Antinori Le Mortelle

Located on the Maremma Coast near the family's Guado al Tasso estate in Bolgheri, Le Mortelle was once part of a larger estate called La... Badiola, created in the nineteenth century when the Duchy drained the marshy areas around Grosseto. The Antinori family purchased Le Mortelle in 1999, and the estate’s name, which comes from the region’s plentiful wild myrrh, signals the family’s green commitment. Le Mortelle isn’t merely certified organic — it also sports a state-of-the-art cellar facility constructed with natural materials and erected under the earth. Built into the side of a hill, Le Mortelle’s cantina is barely visible, but its three-story structure allows for gravity to move the wine from pressing to fermentation to aging barrels, which reduces energy and treats the wine with tender loving care. Helmed by Renzo Cotarella, the Le Mortelle team crafts a range of five fine wines using both international grape varietals like Cabernets Sauvignon and Franc, Carménère, and Voignier, as well as Vermentino and Ansonica. While Le Mortelle’s range of wines is small, the impact is great, and it’s only a matter of time before this Antinori estate achieves the renown it deserves.

Fontodi Flaccianello IGT 2020 750ml

About Fontodi

Tenuta Fontodi has everything going for it: amazing history, terrific microclimates, outstanding skill, intense passion, and great people. The estate sits the... Conca d’Oro, or golden bowl, an ideal spot for winegrowing, and the Manetti family, who has owned the 200-acre Fontodi estate since 1968, has roots in Chianti Classico that date back to 1398, the year when Chianti had its very first official designation. Although the Manettis have been terracotta makers longer than they have been vintners, their love for Toscana drives both pursuits, and, indeed, Giovanni Manetti, Fontodi’s owner-winemaker, has been the president of the Chianti Consorzio since 2018. Fontodi has made some radical changes in recent years, including removing the Cabernet Sauvignon component of its Vigna del Sorbo, making it pure Sangiovese, and opting to vinify some of their wines in amphorae. Certified organic, thoroughly traditional, and utterly bewitching, Fontodi’s wines stand as the epitome of Tuscan elegance, and that never goes out of style.

About Marchesi Antinori Tenuta Guado al Tasso

Piero Antinori, the guiding force behind the Antinori family’s contemporary period and the family’s most game-changing... wines, took his time to release his first Super-Tuscan wine from his Guado al Tasso estate. Piero recognized the great potential of his lands located in the acclaimed Bolgheri Bowl, a natural amphitheater located about 60 miles southwest of Siena, that was drenched with sunlight during the day and cooled at night from sea breezes. Moreover, Guado al Tasso possessed clay-rich alluvial soils with very fine gravel, the distinctive feature that makes Bolgheri wines rich in minerality and lends them their characteristic terroir. While Antinori’s Guado al Tasso had crafted world-famous rosé wines since the 1970s, and although the land’s viticultural history stretches back to the seventeenth century, the estate’s initial premiere red wine, Guado al Tasso, didn’t come on the scene until 1994; however, this blockbuster Super Tuscan made up for lost time and quickly gained global recognition. Growing a selection of Bordeaux-style grape varietals as well as Vermentino, Guado Al Tasso crafts blockbuster reds — including the original flagship Guado al Tasso and the estate’s rising star, the cult Cabernet Franc, Matarocchio.
