About Canalicchio di Sopra

Canalicchio di Sopra’s history is also the history of Montalcino. Once a sharecropper, Primo Pacenti founded the estate in 1962 on land that his... family had worked for generations. Primo was proud to be one of the original twelve members of the Brunello Consortium; when he retired, Primo handed Canalicchio di Sopra to his son-in-law, Pier Luigi Ripaccioli, 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 of 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 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.

Isole e Olena

Isole e Olena Cepparello Toscana IGT 2019 1.5L

About Isole e Olena

“Isole” and “Olena” were once two separate Tuscan wine farms, but in the 1950s, the De Marchi family purchased the properties and united them. For... years, Isole e Olena remained family-owned-and-operated, helmed by Paolo de Marchi, fourth generation winemaker and trained enologist. Paolo bought his family estate, salvaged the property, and began the slow process of renovating the buildings and vineyards. Paolo’s dedication to his vineyards, to Tuscan grapes, and to Italian winemaking made Isole e Olena a trendsetter by crafts some of Italy’s most evocative wines from its 125 acres in western Chianti Classico. In 2022, Paolo decided to sell Isole e Olena to EPI, the French group who also owns Biondi-Santi in Montalcino; however, Paolo’s son, Luca, helms the estate, ensuring the quality that this producer is beloved for. In addition to Cepparello, the estate’s renowned mono-varietal Sangiovese Super Tuscan, Isole e Olena also crafts Chianti Classico and a Vin Santo under the marquee label, as well as an array of internationally styled Super Tuscans under the Collezione de Marchi label.

Vincent Girardin

Vincent Girardin Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru 2012 750ml

Domaine Vincent Girardin

At just 19, Vincent Girardin founded his estate in the 1980s with five acres of inherited vines in the Côte de Beaune. Vincent had great vision —... but not much land — so he purchased grapes from winegrowers who shared his devotion to excellence and his passion for wine. The estate really hit its stride in the early 2000s when Vincent brought on Eric Germain to serve as chief winemaker, and together they honed the Girardin house style: pure, terroir-driven Burgundies with elegance and transparency. During this time, Giradin began to take the vineyards biodynamic, and it increased its holdings, as Vincent purchased plots, leased others, and expanded into Corton Charlemagne, Meursault Perrieres, Genevrières, Pulignys les Pucelles, and Combetes. Today Maison Vincent Gardin is just over 54 acres, and even though Vincent sold the estate in 2011 to Jean-Pierre Nié, President of the Compagnie des Vins d’Autrefois in Beaune, Eric Germain continues as winemaker, ensuring the sublime excellence of Maison Vincent Girardin wine.

Miani

Miani ‘Cossut’ Refosco Colli Orientali del Friuli 2020 750ml

WD95

AboutMiani

Miani’s Enzo Pontoni stands head and shoulders above most of his winemaking peers — both literally and figuratively. The nearly seven-foot tall Pontoni towers... in the vineyard, but he knows his vines on a first-name basis, and as a result, he crafts some of the most hard-to-get wines in Italy’s Colli Orientali del Friuli. Enzo thinks each individual vine possesses its own microclimate, and he tends to his individual plants with individualized care, something that includes possibly the most assertive green harvests in all of Italy. Where other winemakers would leave several bunches of grapes on a vine, Enzo leaves one, maybe two. Where other winemakers would garner a few thousand bottles of wine from a plot, Enzo will get a few hundred. Famously reclusive and shy, Enzo owns only nine acres of vineyards but rents another 22, and he produces fewer than 1,600 cases a year, and that’s 1,600 total cases, spread across his various bottlings. Enzo works with a number of different varieties, from Chardonnay to Ribolla Gialla to Tocai Friulano to Sauvignon Blanc, but he also makes some evocative reds, including his Merlots and Refoscos — all of which inspire collectors to snap them up upon release. No matter the Miani wine, they’re extraordinarily rare, explosive, cult-inspiring, and delicious.

Poggio di Sotto Brunello di Montalcino 2019 750ml

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, Poggio di Sotto continues to craft its deeply balanced wines with very traditional methods.

Biondi-Santi Tenuta Greppo

Biondi-Santi Tenuta Greppo Brunello di Montalcino Annata 2010 750ml

About Biondi-Santi Tenuta Greppo

While Ferruccio Biondi-Santi made the very first bottle of Brunello in the late 1800s, the contemporary age of Il Greppo came when Franco... Biondi-Santi took over from his father, Tancredi Biondi-Santi, and founded the Il Greppo estate in 1970. Franco’s high standards and uncompromising adherence to his forebears’ winemaking practices brought the estate to new heights, thus launching Brunello onto the world stage and setting the gold standard for traditional, age-worthy Brunello. Franco passed away in 2013, and today’s Il Greppo is helmed by Jacopo and Alessandra Biondi-Santi, Franco’s children, though French corporation EPI holds a majority stake in the estate. Under this new control, Biondi-Santi’s vines are being replanted and upgrades are being made to the cantina; however, the 67-acre Il Greppo estate continues its practice of crafting fine, age-worthy Brunello and captivating Rosso di Montalcino wines. Indeed, the estate extended the aging time of its Brunello from five to six years, and it’s started special paired releases of a recent Brunello Riserva with a mature bottling, both commitments to the belief that while time may pass, but a Biondi-Santi Brunello is eternal.
