Poderi Aldo Conterno

2017 Poderi Aldo Conterno Barolo Bussia 6x750ml

Poderi Aldo Conterno Barolo Bussia 2017 The kaleidoscopic 2017 Barolo Bussia shifts in the glass, showing by turns notes of ripe cherries and berries, pencil lead, exotic spices, new leather, and... plum. Chewy tannins cling to the cheeks as this wine glides to a juicy but tightly wound finish. A fascinating marriage of traditional Barolo profile and more modernist approachability, this cuvée Barolo needs a year or two of rest in the cellar and then will drink for decades. Poderi Aldo Conterno 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.

2008 Marchesi Antinori Tignanello Toscana IGT 6x750ml


About Marchesi Antinori Tenuta Tignanello

The Antinori family’s Tenuta Tignanello is a gently hilly property located between that the family has owned since the 1800s. This... 321-acre Tuscan estate gets its name — Tignanello — from its most famous vineyard, but its vines grow the grapes for multiple wines. When Piero Antinori was searching to add his own voice to the Super-Tuscan revolution in the late 1960s, he turned to Giacomo Tachis, the consulting winemaker behind Sangiovese, as well as Ornellaia. Piero wanted to make wines that reflected his family’s Tuscan heritage, and in 1971, Tignanello, a blend of Sangiovese, Cabernet, and Cabernet Franc, was born. Sporting marly, limestone-rich soils that show remnants of the Pliocene Period when the region was covered in an ocean, Tenuta Tignanello enjoys sunny days, cool nights, and a gentle breeze, ideal conditions for wines that sing with a true Tuscan voice.
Poggio di Sotto

2010 Poggio di Sotto Brunello di Montalcino 6x750ml

About Poggio di Sotto Founded in 1989 by Piero Palmucci, Poggio di Sotto lays claim to some of the best vines, the finest microclimates, and the greatest biodiversity to be found... in the densely populated Brunello di Montalcino region. Studies done in conjunction with the University of Florence have found about 120 different biotypes of Sangiovese Grosso growing on the estate’s 115 acres (50 under vine). But this stunning biodiversity — the source of the brightness, intense aromatics, and complexity in the estate’s wines — is just the start. Poggio di Sotto is also home to some of the region’s oldest vines, which average about 50 years of age. These factors combine with the steeply sloped, south-facing vineyards located in Castelnuovo dell'Abate, located in the southeast Brunello subzone in the shelter of nearby Mount Amiata, as well as the soil’s composition of gravel and clay in lower vineyards and sandy clay near the top of the hill. Together, the biodiversity, vine age, microclimate, and soil composition create an ideal environment for the crafting of exemplary, finessed, and powerful Brunello. Now owned by ColleMassari, who also owns Grattamacco, Poggio di Sotto continues to craft its deeply balanced wines with very traditional methods.
