Marchesi Antinori Tormaresca / Tenuta Bocca di Lupo

Tormaresca, the Antinori family’s Puglia estate, founded in 1998, began with two parts: the 247-acre Tenuta Bocca di... Lupo, which sits in Castel del Monte in the wild beauty of Murgia, and the 1,235-acre Masseria Maìme in Salento, close to the Adriatic Sea. In time, Antinori split these estates, bottling Bocca di Lupo as its own entity, while expanding Tormaresca to include additional inland vines at Tenuta Carrubo, located in Manduria. Growing both indigenous and international grape varietals, Tormaresca draws from these locations to create wines that offer a panoramic view of Puglia, while offering a finessed style that bridges traditional Italian and more modern wine profiles. As with most of Antinori's estates, Tormaresca and Bocca di Lupo are under the guidance of CEO, enologist, and winemaker Renzo Cotarella and his team, who work to craft wines that transmit the region's unusual volcanic terroir. Together, these sites craft a range of delicious, terroir-driven Puglian wines that pack a punch at their relatively low price points.

About Domaine Bitouzet-Prieur

Family-owned-and-operated, Domaine Bitouzet-Prieur has long roots in Burgundy, but aside from a new winery finished in 2020, very little about... this Volnay estate has changed. Founded in 1804 by the great-great-grandfather of the current owner-winemaker, Vincent Bitouzet, this 29-acre estate is dedicated to crafting long-aging, classically styled Burgundies, and it has earned a sterling reputation for making outstanding, profound wines. Vincent works alongside his wife, Annie, and son, Francois; they use non-interventionist practices both in the vineyards and in the cellar, farming organically, foregoing pesticides and herbicides, and they rely on natural yeasts and employ very little new oak. Vincent’s wines are complex, elegant, age-worthy, and exceedingly pure — the house style for both its red and white Burgundy would be entirely recognizable to his forebears, and this mindful adherence to traditional Burgundy is what makes connoisseurs and collectors seek out Bitouzet-Prieur wines.

Domaine Jean-Marc Pillot

Fourth-generation vigneron Jean-Marc Pillot is something of a rockstar in Chassagne. After studying at the Lycée Viticole in Beaune, Jean-Marc began... working with his father, Jean Pillot, in 1985 and he assumed control of the estate six years later. Jean-Marc has strived to leave his own personal imprint on his domaine’s wines while remaining true to the history of his father’s estate. Over the past few decades, Jean-Marc has taken his vines organic, built a new wine cave, tinkered with vinification and elevage, and moved to fermenting with only indigenous yeasts. He has also expanded the estate to about 30 acres of land, with grapes coming from an additional five or so acres coming from trusted négociants. While Jean-Marc Pillot’s holdings are mainly in Chassagne, the domaine also has vineyards Puligny, Santenay, Meursault, and Remigny, and though the estate primarily crafts white wines, it is well known for some spectacular reds. Recently, Jean-Marc’s son Antonin has begun assuming control of his father’s estate, ensuring the Pillot family’s legacy of pure, traditional, expressive white Burgundies.

About Baricci

One of the original members of the Consorzio del Vino Brunello di Montalcino, Baricci is also one of the best small Brunello producers. Nello Baricci passed the... estate to his son-in-law, Pietro Buffi, who recently gave the reins to his son, Federico. The Buffi family makes wines that are true to type, honest and real. Baricci uses non-interventionist practices in farming its Galestro Schist-based 29-acre (12 under vine) vineyards that sit at about 850 feet above sea level, and it uses traditional methods in the cantina too: fermenting in temperature-controlled stainless-steel tanks, and aging in medium-sized oak botti. Traditional and family-owned-and-operated, Baricci's output every vintage is tantalizingly small, although in recent years Baricci has added a riserva bottling to its lineup and built a new cellar facility to help increase both the quality and quantity of its fine wines. With a yearly production of just 2,500 cases, Baricci's wines are hard to find, but their complex, delicious palates make them easy to enjoy, and definitely a bang for your Brunello buck!

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.

About Marchesi Antinori Prunotto

Located in the rolling hills of Alba, Piemonte, the Prunotto estate epitomizes the timeless beauty and effortless elegance of the Langhe.... Founded in 1904, Prunotto began as a wine cooperative formed in Serralunga and presided over by Alfredo Prunotto. Beppe Colla assumed control of the estate in 1956 and expanded Prunotto’s success with a savvy strategy of researching the finest vineyard sites, purchasing the best grapes, and experimenting with cru bottlings. The Antinori family started distributing Prunotto’s wine in 1989 and assumed control of the estate in 1994. In a project spearheaded by Albiera Antinori, Prunotto recreated itself with an eye to wines defined by very specific terroir. Albiera began researching and purchasing specific vineyards, eventually amassing 161 acres that spread across the Langhe and Monferrato, with holdings in the legendary Barolo vineyards of Vigna Colonnello, Bussia, Bric Turot, as well as Barbera’s Pian Romualdo, Barbaresco’s Secondine, and many more. Under Albiera’s careful stewardship, Prunotto has not merely regained its former glory — it has surpassed it, cementing this venerable winemaker as one of the very best that Piemonte has to offer.
