Marchesi Antinori Vinsanto del Chianti Classico 2017 375ml

While 2017 threw rollercoaster weather at the Antinori family estates in Chianti Classico, this Vinsanto drinks like... electric silk. Fresh yet dense, sweet yet zesty, this wine fills the mouth with notes of almond paste, apricot nectar, orange zest, and toffee, along with smoke, minerals, and umami. Edgy acidity and subtle minerality keeps this bewitching Vinsanto light on its feet and makes it a perfect ending to a meal.

Marchese Antinori Castello della Sala

The stone fortress that serves as the namesake for Castello della Sala was built in 1350, but the modern age for this estate began in... 1940, when Marchese Niccolò Antinori purchased the 1,200-acre estate (495 acres planted to vine). In the late 1970s, Piero Antinori, son of Niccolò, felt inspired to create an age-worthy, complex white wine, so he joined forces with Umbrian native Renzo Cotarella, who had recently joined the Castello della Sala team. After years of tinkering, experimenting, and eureka moments, the estate’s flagship white, Cervaro della Sala was born, which saw its debut with the 1985 vintage, and a new Italian wine icon was born. But Castello della Sala isn’t limited to high quality whites; the estate’s vineyards sport fossil-rich calcareous-clay soils that, while ideal for white grape varietals, also makes for spectacular Pinot Noir. Today’s Castello della Sala crafts a range of wines that include multiple whites and reds, as well as Muffato della Sala, a showstopping dessert wine.

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.

A blend of Malvasia and Sangiovese, Fontodi’s Vin Santo gives a nice balance among its elements — silky tannins, fresh acidity, juicy fruits, salty minerals, and lingering sweetness.

About Royal Tokaji Wine Company

The Royal Tokaji Wine Company is both rather new and very old. Founded only in 1990, Royal Tokaji came about when noted wine writer Hugh... Johnson recognized that, following the fall of the Soviet Empire, Hungary’s wineries were ripe for a resurgence. Hugh joined with local winemaker Istvan Szepsy, a bunch of local winegrowers, and a group of investors to form Royal Tojaji, and history was both made and reborn. The Tokaji region in Hungary has centuries of wine history, and it lays claim to being the birthplace of the world’s first botrytized sweet wine (probably in the early 17th century, but no one knows the exact year). Royal Tokaji, located in the village of Mád, about 150 miles northeast of Budapest, is dedicated to crafting a range of traditional, high quality Tokaji wines — from dry to sweet — with a collective of more than 60 local winegrowers, the most famous being Essencia, a rare and exquisite wine customarily served from a crystal spoon.
