About Castello Bonomi

The Paladin family, who has been making estate-bottled wine for about 60 years, owns several estates across Italy, from the Veneto to Tuscany, but... perhaps their most famous and most distinct is Castello Bonomi, in Lombardy’s Franciacorta region. With vinicultural history that dates back to medieval Benedictine monks, Franciacorta spans about 5,400 acres, but this rare northern Italian region is devoted to one unique style of wine: the best champagne-styled sparklers that you can find outside of France — indeed, it’s the sole DOCG region that permits classic méthode champenoise sparklers. The family-owned-and-operated Castello Bonomi estate is housed in a gorgeous art deco villa built in the late nineteenth century, and the estate’s vineyards sit on 60 steeply pitched acres in a natural amphitheater that rests at the foot of Mount Orfano. These terraced vineyards enjoy a privileged microclimate that includes limestone-rich soils, southern exposures, excellent drainage, and pure sunlight. These elements provide the raw materials that Castello Bonomi’s Chardonnay and Pinot Nero grapes need, while a strict green harvest, low yields, and stringent grape sorting help the estate’s team craft a range of terroir-driven, award-winning Franciacorta wines.

Dal Forno Romano

Dal Forno Romano Vigneto Monte Lodoletta Valpolicella Superiore 2014 750ml

Vigneto Monte Lodoletta Valpolicella Superiore 2014 In the challenging 2014 vintage, Dal Forno opted against making any Amarone and decided to focus on its Valpolicella Superiore. This stunning,... complex wine shows the wisdom of that choice! Oscillating between sweet cherries and tart blackberries, bright acidity and intense dry extract, juicy fruits and savory underpinnings, this wine is a marvel. Notes of cigar wrapper, licorice, Christmas cake, chocolate and game ebb and flow. This broad-shouldered beauty is nimble and powerful — an absolute must that will drink for decades.

Dal Forno Romano

Dal Forno Romano Vigneto Monte Lodoletta Valpolicella Superiore 2003 750ml

Vigneto Monte Lodoletta Valpolicella Superiore 2003 Two decades of age have polished Dal Forno’s big, broad-shouldered 2003 Valpolicella Superiore to a glossy, sophisticated sheen. This wine keeps... its fistfuls of super-ripe cherries, berries, and plums, but now they’re impeccably balanced with sweet, chewy tannins, and elegant, lively acidity. Savory notes of coffee, bitter chocolate, tarry earth, forest floor, and baking spices underpin the sweet fruits in this monumental, beautifully structured wine.

Ornellaia

Though Ornellaia entered the Super-Tuscan field later than Sassicaia and Solaia, Ornellaia made up for lost time with global impact, and today, Ornellaia’s... flagship and other wines are hot commodities on the fine wine market. Ornellaia’s 244 acres sit in Bolgheri, just a few miles from the Tyrrhenian Sea, and the estate’s holdings are split between two parcels, a 100-acre parcel located in a natural bowl near the state-of-the-art cantina and the remaining acres in the Bellaria subzone closer to the sea. This assortment of microclimates, supported by soils that range from stony to clayey to loamy, offers ideal growing conditions to its predominantly Bordeaux-style grape varietals. Since 2005, the Frescobaldi family has owned and operated Ornellaia, and Axel Heinz has served as the company’s chief winemaker, running the Ornellaia operation with a painstaking eye for detail and dedication to his craft.

Tenuta San Guido

Tenuta San Guido Sassicaia Bolgheri 2016 750ml

Tenuta San Guido Sassicaia 2016 I’m going to be bold and say it: the 2016 Sassicaia is pretty much perfect. A refined, polished, and incredibly detailed expression of an outstanding year, the 2016... Sassicaia is everything you could hope for from this legendary Italian wine. Pure, succulent cherries, blackberries, and plums fruits layer with violet petals, sun-warmed pebbles, pressed wild herbs, spice, and cedar in this epic Sassicaia vintage. Tannins feel chiseled, the acidity is electric, and the savory mineral finish is clean, persistent, and elegant. Give it a year or two in the cellar and then enjoy this legend-in-the-making for decades to come!
