About Marchese 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. This estate is home to three of Antinori's  crown jewels: Solaia, Tignanello, and Chianti Classico Riserva.

About La Spinetta

For all its staid traditionalism, Piedmont holds its fair share of revolutionary winemakers. While Angelo Gaja may first spring to mind, La Spinetta... doesn’t lag far behind. Founded in 1977 by three brothers, Georgio, Carlo and Bruno Rivetti, La Spinetta quickly became a cult sensation. With Giorgio at the winemaking helm, the La Spinetta estate swiftly moved from crafting remarkably good Moscato bottlings into crafting outrageous Barbaresco, Barbera, and Barolo wines — all while positioning itself as an incendiary, polarizing figure in Piedmontese winemaking. La Spinetta passionately embraced in methodology that took every tool reviled by the traditionalists — intensive pruning, roto-fermenters, refinement in 100% new barrique. In adopting these techniques, La Spinetta was able to deliver Barbaresco that offered something was previously inconceivable: an immediately drinkable, intense, hedonistic profile. La Spinetta began crafting its ultra-ripe cru Barbaresco bottlings in the mid-1990s, branching out into Barolo in 2000, then moving into Tuscany in 2001, and eventually even adding a méthode champenoise bottling when the estate acquired the historic Contratto winery in 2011. La Spinetta's official motto is "making wines with passion," and the wines of La Spinetta have a heady, commanding, and voluptuous presence; most excitingly, these wines aren’t just the province of collectors, for the estate’s Langhe Nebbiolo and its Barbera d’Asti “Ca’ di Pian” offer tremendous pleasure at everyday pricing.

About Gaja

You can’t overestimate the impact of Angelo Gaja on the global fine wine landscape. Though the Gaja estate was founded in 1859 by Angelo’s great-grandfather,... Angelo started shaking things up in 1961 when he assumed control of the family’s winery. Angelo started small: choosing to bottle only estate-grown wines, reducing crop sizes, and decreasing fermentation periods. By 1967, Angelo had gained the confidence to make larger changes, beginning with the bottling of cru Barbaresco Sorì San Lorenzo, while Sorì Tildìn followed in 1970 and Costa Russi in 1978. In the mid-1970s, Angelo began aging his wines in barriques, and he replaced some prime Nebbiolo vines in Barbaresco with Cabernet Sauvignon for his Darmagi and Chardonnay for his Gaia & Rey. But as radical as some of Angelo’s innovations seemed — and his adding some Barbera to his cru Barbaresco and Barolo appeared very radical —Angelo’s boldest moves helped to bring his wines, as well as Piemonte wines, to the notice of the international market. Angelo refused to play by any rules but his own; he refused to compromise on the quality of his wines; and he succeeded. Angelo began his transition to retirement in 2004, and winemaking duties now rest in the hands of his daughter, Gaia, who has been making bold moves of her own, all in the single-minded pursuit of crafting wines of outstanding excellence.

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.

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.
