About Baricci

One of the original members of the Consorzio del Vino Brunello di Montalcino, Baricci is also one of the best small Brunello producers. Nello Baricci passed the... estate to his son-in-law, Pietro Buffi, who recently gave the reins to his son, Federico. The Buffi family makes wines that are true to type, honest and real. Baricci uses non-interventionist practices in farming its Galestro Schist-based 29-acre (12 under vine) vineyards that sit at about 850 feet above sea level, and it uses traditional methods in the cantina too: fermenting in temperature-controlled stainless-steel tanks, and aging in medium-sized oak botti. Traditional and family-owned-and-operated, Baricci's output every vintage is tantalizingly small, although in recent years Baricci has added a riserva bottling to its lineup and built a new cellar facility to help increase both the quality and quantity of its fine wines. With a yearly production of just 2,500 cases, Baricci's wines are hard to find, but their complex, delicious palates make them easy to enjoy, and definitely a bang for your Brunello buck!

About Canalicchio di Sopra

Canalicchio di Sopra was founded on land acquired by a former sharecropper, Primo Pacenti, but before Primo purchased the land that would become his... estate in 1962, his family had worked on the land for generations, and Primo was proudly one of the original twelve members of the Brunello Consortium. As he retired, Primo handed Canalicchio di Sopra to his son-in-law, Pier Luigi Ripacciolo, and since 2001, the estate has been run by Pier Luigi’s three children, Francesco, Marco, and Simonetta. With two vineyard parcels that sit north and east of the town of Montalcino, sheltered by Mount Amiata and kissed by sea breezes blowing off the Mediterranean, Canalicchio di Sopra’s 47 acres occupy some the highest altitudes in the Brunello region and possess a superb range of microclimates. “Elegance” is the watchword at Canalicchio di Sopra, and this maker delivers, vintage after delicious vintage.

Fontodi

Fontodi Meriggio Colli Toscana Centrale Bianco IGT 2022 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.

Col d'Orcia

Col d’Orcia Brunello di Montalcino 2018 750ml

WD95

About Col d'Orcia

Originally from Piemonte, the Cinzano family — yes, that Cinzano family, the one that brought Vermouth to the global market —acquired the Col d’Orcia... estate in the 1970s and the winery’s Poggio al Vento soon became one of the iconic Brunello bottlings. The largest certified organic estates in all of Tuscany, Col d'Orcia's positioning on Brunello’s southwestern slope offers a warmer climate and helps the estate’s grapes become rounder, gentler, and a little less acidic than those from other parts of Montalcino. Col d'Orcia boasts albarese soil, the limestone-rich, mineral-laden earth that helps make Tuscany special. Col d’Orcia’s tenth-generation winemaker, Santiago Marone Cinzano, uses vinification techniques that are a mix of traditional and modern — for example, the estate employs both botti and barriques for aging, and this combination offers a compelling integration of power and finesse, as well as a terrific marriage of age-worthiness and drinkability.

Il Poggione

Il Poggione Brunello di Montalcino 2018 750ml

WD94

About Il Poggione

Founded near the end of the nineteenth century, Il Poggione’s modern age began in 1958, when Leopoldo Franceschi, grandfather of the current owner, engaged... renowned winemaker Pierluigi Talenti as the estate’s winemaker. Pierluigi made the most of Il Poggione’s considerable natural gifts for 40 years, shaping the estate’s muscular, graceful, and aromatic house style as he trained Fabrizio Bindocci, who assumed control of the estate in 1999, and he now runs the estate with his son, Alessandro. Nestled in the southern Brunello subzone in the hills around Sant’Angelo in Colle, Il Poggione’s 1,482 acres (302 planted to vine) possess some astonishing terroir. Today’s Il Poggione grows its grapes with non-interventionist methods, and it crafts its wines in its state-of-the-art cantina using traditional methods, including aging its wines in large oak vats in its underground cellar. One of the great authentic Brunello makers, Il Poggione’s wines consistently over-perform both in the cellar and on the table.
