About Pasquale Pelissero

Founded in 1921 by brothers Giuseppe and Giovanni Pelissero, the tiny family-owned-and-operated Pasquale Pelissero estate entered its modern era in... the 1970s when its namesake, Pasquale, began bottling his estate-grown wines. Pasquale, or Papa, was a pioneer in Barbaresco because, at that time, few other estates were bottling their own Barbaresco. Pasquale’s daughter, Ornella, started working in the vineyards when she was just 15, and she assumed control of Pasquale Pelissero in 2007 when her father suddenly passed away. Just under 20 acres in the hills around Neive, Pasquale Pelissero grows sustainably and adheres to tradition — indeed, Ornella’s only concession to modern technology is a temperature-controlled fermentation tank. Ornella and her son, Simone, do everything at Pasquale Pelissero, from maintaining the vines to vinifying their wines in their cellar that sits near the top of the Bricco San Giuliano hill. Pasquale Pelissero crafts fewer than 4,000 cases of its tradition, terroir-driven wine a year.

Poderi Aldo Conterno

Poderi Aldo Conterno Barbera d’Alba Conca Tre Pile 2020 750ml

Poderi Aldo Conterno

Poderi Aldo Conterno rose to fame by crafting some of the best-known, best-loved cru Barolo expressions in its Barolo Romirasco, Colonnello, and Cicala,... as well as its Chardonnay Bussiador and its Quartetto, a red wine that blends indigenous Freisa with international grapes. In 1969, Aldo Conterno famously parted ways with his brother at their father’s estate, Giacomo Conterno, and founded Poderi Aldo Conterno in the “Favot” cellar on 61 acres in Bussia of Monforte d'Alba, the heart of Barolo country. Aldo’s vision was to craft wines that blended traditional structure, grace, and longevity with exquisitely transparent terroir, seductive juiciness, and a clearly defined personality. Before his death in 2012, Aldo achieved all this and more, creating a winemaking legacy that set him apart as one of the world’s greatest winemakers. The Aldo Conterno estate continues Aldo’s remarkable winemaking work in the hands of his three sons, Franco, Stefano, and Giacomo.

Marchesi Antinori Vina Haras de Pirque Albis 2018 750ml

Marchesi Antinori Viña Haras de Pirque Albis 2018

Silky and powerful, the 2018 Albis unwraps slowly to reveal its many layers — succulent wild berries, ripe plums, new... leather, peppery spices, melted chocolate, and lots of pipe tobacco. This blend of 70% Cab Sauv and 30% Carménère is bold yet sneaky, with a nice substantial mouthfeel, lots of chewy tannins, and a surprising, nuanced palate that builds to a lingering, berry-laden finish. The child of a super-temperate, extended growing season, the 2018 Albis has fantastic potential, but you can dive in right now with proper decanting.

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, 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 Gaja Ca’Marcanda

In 1994, Angelo Gaja expanded his Piedmont winemaking enterprise into Tuscany, first establishing his Brunello estate, Pieve Santa Restituta, and two... years later, opening his Bolgheri estate, Ca’Marcanda. Dedicated to producing the kind of Super-Tuscan wines that put Bolgheri on the map, Ca’Marcanda’s stylish, approachable wines have the Gaja trademark ability to blend international profiles with Italian structure. The estate boasts 300 acres of vines, all planted by the Gaja team because there were no pre-existing vines, that grow in eleven different kinds of soils, though two types dominate: terre brune, or brown soil, which is mineral rich lying at the base of the foothills, and terra bianche, or white soil, which is the light-colored calcareous clay much beloved by winemakers. Ca’Marcanda crafts three reds — Camarcanda, Magari, and Promis — as well as one white, Vistamare; all are delicious, characterful wines that are truly representative of their Gaja family name.

About Marchesi Antinori Prunotto

Located in the rolling hills of Alba, Piemonte, the Prunotto estate epitomizes the timeless beauty and effortless elegance of the Langhe.... Founded in 1904, Prunotto began as a wine cooperative formed in Serralunga and presided over by Alfredo Prunotto. Beppe Colla assumed control of the estate in 1956 and expanded Prunotto’s success with a savvy strategy of researching the finest vineyard sites, purchasing the best grapes, and experimenting with cru bottlings. The Antinori family started distributing Prunotto’s wine in 1989 and assumed control of the estate in 1994. In a project spearheaded by Albiera Antinori, Prunotto recreated itself with an eye to wines defined by very specific terroir. Albiera began researching and purchasing specific vineyards, eventually amassing 161 acres that spread across the Langhe and Monferrato, with holdings in the legendary Barolo vineyards of Vigna Colonnello, Bussia, Bric Turot, as well as Barbera’s Pian Romualdo, Barbaresco’s Secondine, and many more. Under Albiera’s careful stewardship, Prunotto has not merely regained its former glory — it has surpassed it, cementing this venerable winemaker as one of the very best that Piemonte has to offer.

About Sassetti Livio Pertimali

While the Sassetti family have been farmers for many generations, they’ve been working as vine-growers and winemakers for four generations.... A founding member of the Brunello Consortium in 1967, Livio Sassetti inherited his family’s passion for wine, and he wanted the chance to estate-bottle his own Brunello, so in the early 1970's he purchased his own plot of land in Montosoli and founded the Pertimali estate, named for a cottage on the property. The 39-acre Pertimalli Sassetti estate now rests in the hands of Livio’s sons, Lorenzo and Luciano, who join him in the production of elegant, complex, and aromatic wines that marry the distinctive Montalcino terroir with the structure of Burgundy. In addition to Pertimali Sassetti, the Sassetti family of estates includes La Querciolina in Umbria and Colle Argento in Valdobbiadene.

Azienda Agricola La Torre

Azienda Agricola La Torre Brunello di Montalcino 2018 750ml

WD93

About Azienda Agricola La Torre

"La Torre" translates to "the tower," and this exciting Montalcino estate spreads across almost 90 acres in Sesti, near Sant’Angelo in Colle,... though fewer than 14 acres are under vine. Owner-winemaker Luigi Anania purchased this estate in 1976, and the winery saw its inaugural Brunello vintage in 1982, one of the truly fabled years of the last century. Anania and his team use non-interventionist practices in the vineyard and traditional winemaking in the cellar to craft La Torre’s terroir-driven, accessible wines. The most remarkable aspect of La Torre is the elevation of its vineyards. Perched at about 1,500 feet above sea level in the southwestern Brunello subzone, these naturally terraced, limestone-rich vineyards are high enough to enjoy gentle breezes coming off the Tyrrhenian Sea, which helps La Torre’s Sangiovese Grosso grapes ripen fully, while escaping heat and dryness. La Torre’s delicious, enjoyable, and traditional Brunello wines are true gems, especially at their relatively affordable price point.

Cerbaia Brunello di Montalcino 2018 750ml

About Azienda Agricola Cerbaia

Located above the fog line high on the Montosoli hill just north of Montalcino, Cerbaia is neither very large nor very old. This organic 29-acre... estate (fewer than 11 acres under vine) was founded in 1978, but despite its relative youth and diminutive size, Cerbaia is one of Brunello’s rising stars and definitely an estate to watch! Agronomist Fabio Pellegrini chose Montosoli for his estate because he saw tremendous potential in the subregion’s galestro soil because this clayey, rocky dirt was ideal for the cultivation of small-berried, thick-skinned Brunello grapes. Fabio ran Cerbaia until 2014, which his daughter, Elena, assumed control. In trading her career in finance for that of a winemaker, Elena was making a big life change, but her gamble is paying off. Cerbaia may average only 1,500 cases of Brunello every vintage, but eyes are on Cerbaia’s wines. Traditional, aromatic, long-aging, and terroir-driven, Cerbaia’s Brunello releases have everything to please the wine’s many, many fans!

Marchesi Antinori Le Mortelle

Marchesi Antinori Le Mortelle Poggio alle Nane Maremma Toscana 2021 750ml

WD93

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. Le Mortelle occupies almost 670 acres, with 420 acres under vine, and it boasts a variety of soils that range from sandy and loamy with clay and silica to rocky, pebbly, and mineral-rich. 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.
