About Montevertine

Just under 50 acres located in and around the rolling hills of Radda in the Chianti Classico region, Montevertine has made a powerful impact on the global... wine landscape with its cult mono-varietal bottling, Le Pergole Torte, but even more than that glowing achievement, Montevertine has exerted a kind of gravitational pull over the entire Chianti region because of its staunch adherence to traditional indigenous grapes, especially Sangiovese. Founder Sergio Manetti wasn’t looking to shift the Tuscan winemaking landscape when he bought the lands that would become Montevertine in 1967, but he planted about five acres of Sangiovese, made some wine for friends, and sent a couple of bottles off to Vinitaly as a lark. The wine was a hit, and Montevertine was born. Today, Montevertine, helmed by Sergio’s son, Martino, spans nine organically tended vineyard parcels, with the majority planted to Sangiovese, and it crafts three wines. Montevertine’s position has shifted from new guard to vanguard, and wine-lovers around the globe await every new release with bated breath.

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!

Poderi Aldo Conterno

Poderi Aldo Conterno Barolo Cicala 2019 1.5L

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.

Lucien Le Moine

Lucien Le Moine Batard-Montrachet Grand Cru 2016 750ml

WD95

Maison Lucien Le Moine

Founded in 1999, this small very high-end négociant house in the Côte d’Or has made a lot of noise in the world of elite Burgundy. Husband-and-wife... team Mounir and Rotem Saouma are committed to releasing no more than 100 barrels — or 2,500 cases — of wine each vintage, and they make only premier or grand cru Burgudny. For some time, Maison Lucien Le Moine grew no grapes, and it pressed no wine, but in 2006, the estate purchased 20 acres in Châteauneuf and Côtes du Rhône-Villages. Lucien Le Moine makes Burgundy in an idiosyncratic fashion — by raising barrels of grand and premier cru wines according to exacting standards of élévage that include lengthy time on augmented lees for whites or year-long undisturbed aging in amphorae for reds. Working closely with growers, Lucien Le Moine produces one to three barrels from each cru, and the crus shift with each vintage. Together, Mounir and Rotem do everything by hand, aging wines on their lees, never racking them, never using fining, filtration, additions or blending. Through this painstaking work, Lucien Le Moine has become, as Lucien has called it, “a library of Burgundy’s finest terroirs.”

Dalla Valle Vineyards

Dalla Valle Vineyards DVO Napa Valley Red 2019 750ml

About DVO

Great wines come from great relationships. The working friendship between Maya Dalla Valle, the second-generation winemaker at Napa’s Dalla Valle Vineyards, and... Axel Heinz, Ornellaia’s winemaker until 2023, spawned DVO, a line of red wines with Napa fruit and Italian winemaking sensibility. Maya, who assumed the role of winemaker at her parents’ Dalla Valle Vineyards estate in 2021, has deep roots at Ornellaia — she worked at the Bolgheri estate for the 2013 vintage and found a mentor in Axel. With guidance from Naoki Dalla Valle and Giovanni Geddes da Filicaja of Ornellaia, Maya and her DVO team uses the fruit from cooler vineyards to create a singular wine that synthesizes the Dalla Valle Vineyards and Ornellaia. The inaugural 2018 bottling of DVO’s Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc blend arrived with great critical and collector fanfare, marking a new wine to watch — and enjoy!

About Dalla Valle Vineyards

In 1982, Naoki and Gustav Dalla Valle came to Oakville, California, and purchased a small property looking out over the valley high in the Vaca Mountains. The couple intended to open a resort, but Gustav, whose family had long grown wine in northern Italy, recognized the potential of the iron-rich, rocky soils. Dalla Valle Vineyards released its first vintage just four years later, finding fame with the 1992 vintage of its Cabernet blend, Maya. After Gustav passed in 1995, Naoki took control of the estate, and with her team, she brought the organically grown 20-acre estate to even greater heights. In 2021, daughter Maya, who trained at both Cornell University and Bordeaux’s Sciences Agro University, became the estate’s winemaker. Dalla Valle Vineyards takes a hands-on, intensive approach to tending their 18 parcels of vines, a practice that Maya calls “precision farming.” The estate crafts three rare, exceptional wines every year, and when vintages are exceptional, also makes its highly sought-after MDV Cabernet Sauvignon.

About (Nicolas Potel) Maison Roche de Bellene

Nicolas Potel, son of the late, great vigneron Gérard Potel, who was director of the famed Pousse d'Or, founded his négoçiant... house Maison Nicolas Potel in 1996. However, in the early 2000s, Nicolas sold the négociant house, and he left shortly thereafter, thus losing the legal right to use his name for his business. By 2008, Nicolas had found both Domaine de Bellene, which bottles estate-grown wines, and Maison Roche de Bellene, which is a négociant house, both located in Beaune. At Maison Roche de Bellene, Nicolas concentrates on premier and grand cru wines that come from old or very old vines tended by trusted growers across Côte de Beaune and Côte de Nuits. Nicolas explores high quality, more affordable wines at Maison Roche de Bellene, and he has amassed a cult following of in-the-know Burgundy lovers with his terroir-driven red and white Burgundies.

Bartolo Mascarello

Bartolo Mascarello Barolo 2018 1.5L

About Bartolo Mascarello

Bartolo Mascarello was an intractable defender of traditional Barolo, the “last of the Mohicans,” in his words. Bartolo made Barolos that... gorgeously embodied their vintage and their terroir, and these supple, powerful, and nuanced wines have captivated their fans for generations. Since Bartolo’s passing in 2005, his daughter Maria Teresa Mascarello has helmed the cantina at 15 Via Roma, the legendary site of the Bartolo Mascarello estate since its founding in 1918, and under her leadership, Mascarello’s Barolo, Dolcetto, and Barbera have grown even finer, subtler, more detailed, and spellbinding. While the Mascarello estate sports enviable holdings in Cannubi, San Lorenzo and Rué, located in the commune of Barolo, as well as in La Morra’s Rocche in the commune of La Morra, it still has never released a cru wine. Blending, Bartolo believed, provided balance, especially in challenging vintages. Maria Teresa sees no reason to change her father’s ways (or those of his father, and his before him). After all, there’s no improving upon perfection.

Giacomo Conterno

Giacomo Conterno Barolo Cascina Francia 1985 750ml

About Giacomo Conterno

Giacomo Conterno is justifiably famous. This legendary estate is the creator of Barolo Monfortino, not merely one of the world’s greatest wines but... also the first Barolo made in what has come to be known as the “classic style,” but Giacomo Conterno’s renown spreads beyond this marquee, collectable Barolo. After founding the estate in 1908, Giovanni Conterno made the first Barolo Monfortino in 1924. His son, Giacomo, inherited his father’s drive to make a serious, long-aging wine (Giacomo’s brother, Aldo Conterno, shared inheritance of the estate, but split in 1969 to form his own estate). Giacomo continued to rely on négociant grapes until 1974, when he purchased the Cascina Francia vineyard, the famed southwestern-facing 40-acre plot whose calcareous soil and densely planted Nebbiolo vines is home to Barolo Francia, as well as Barolo Monfortino. Upon Giacomo’s passing in 2004, son Roberto assumed control, continuing his legacy of crafting traditional wines of tremendous longevity and unparalleled quality. Roberto added to the estate’s lands by purchasing the historic Cerretta vineyard, as well as other choice plots located in Serralunga. A proud member of the Piemonte old guard, Giacomo Conterno sets the standard for traditional, age-worthy Barolo.
