Bosco Del Merlo

Bosco del Merlo Prosecco Millesimato Rosé Brut DOC NV 750ml

WD92
Bright pink and demanding attention, this Prosecco DOC Brut Rose’ is a blend of Glera again, but this time, like a dark twin, boasts 15% Pinot Nero from a low density vineyard to increase intensity... of color and aroma. This wine is an explosion of blue and red fruits layered with violets and roses. Anyone who seldom drinks Rose bubbles will be impressed! As an added bonus, Bosco del Marlo is all about sustainability and taking care of the land and its inhabitants, so the company donates part of their profits to support the fight against breast cancer and those who suffer from this condition.

Grosjean Vins

Grosjean Vins Montmary Metodo Classico Rose Extra Brut 2021 750ml

WD92

About Grosjean Vins

You could accurately call Grosjean Vins heroic. First, the Grosjean family moved from Savoy, France, to Fornet, a village high in the mountains of... Italy’s Valle d’Aosta, in 1630 to repopulate the area, which had been decimated by plague. There, they eked out a precarious livelihood, stockpiling chestnuts and other subsistence foods to get them through the region’s punishing winters. Though they’d long made wine for themselves, the Grosjean family began selling its wines only in 1969, when Dauphin Grosjean was persuaded to enter his personal wines in a local expo, and the response made the family into fulltime winemakers. The 17 acres of Grosjean vineyards are themselves heroic, according to local criteria: the tiny vineyard plots are terraced, pitched at a 30% grade or higher, and rest above 1,640 feet above sea level. Here, the Grosjean family, five siblings and a few cousins, grow their grapes organically, vinify their wines traditionally, and release fewer than 1,200 cases of wine each year to their many fans. It’s a heroic task, and worthy of toasting.

Marchesi Antinori Le Mortelle

Marchesi Antinori Le Mortelle Botrosecco 2017 750ml

WD91

About Marchesi Antinori Le Mortelle

Located on the Maremma Coast near the family's Guado al Tasso estate in Bolgheri, Le Mortelle was once part of a larger estate called La... Badiola, created in the nineteenth century when the Duchy drained the marshy areas around Grosseto. The Antinori family purchased Le Mortelle in 1999, and the estate’s name, which comes from the region’s plentiful wild myrrh, signals the family’s green commitment. Le Mortelle isn’t merely certified organic — it also sports a state-of-the-art cellar facility constructed with natural materials and erected under the earth. Built into the side of a hill, Le Mortelle’s cantina is barely visible, but its three-story structure allows for gravity to move the wine from pressing to fermentation to aging barrels, which reduces energy and treats the wine with tender loving care. Le Mortelle occupies almost 670 acres, with 420 acres under vine, and it boasts a variety of soils that range from sandy and loamy with clay and silica to rocky, pebbly, and mineral-rich. While Le Mortelle’s range of wines is small, the impact is great, and it’s only a matter of time before this Antinori estate achieves the renown it deserves.

About Villa S.Anna

Located in the village of Abbadia di Montepulciano the hills of southern Tuscany, Villa S. Anna (originally spelled Villa Sant’Anna) stands as a standard... bearer of traditional Vino di Montepulciano. Villa S.Anna is owned and operated by three women: matriarch Simona Ruggeri Fabroni and her two daughters, Anna and Margherita. Simona’s family had owned the land that’s now Villa S.Anna for centuries, quietly making some wine for personal consumption and selling off the rest of the grapes to other producers. In 1989, Simona decided to begin estate-bottling her wines, and Villa S.Anna was born. Over the past three decades, Simona and her daughters have increased their vineyard holdings to about 25 acres, mostly in the two regions of Chianti Colli Senesi and Vino Nobili Montepulciano, and today this small estate crafts four wines, each one representative of its Tuscan land, Tuscan traditions, and the passion of three Tuscan women.

Azienda Agricola La Torre

Azienda Agricola La Torre Rosso di Montalcino 2021 750ml

WD91

About Azienda Agricola La Torre

"La Torre" translates to "the tower," and this exciting Montalcino estate spreads across almost 90 acres in Sesti, near Sant’Angelo in Colle,... though fewer than 14 acres are under vine. Owner-winemaker Luigi Anania purchased this estate in 1976, and the winery saw its inaugural Brunello vintage in 1982, one of the truly fabled years of the last century. Anania and his team use non-interventionist practices in the vineyard and traditional winemaking in the cellar to craft La Torre’s terroir-driven, accessible wines. The most remarkable aspect of La Torre is the elevation of its vineyards. Perched at about 1,500 feet above sea level in the southwestern Brunello subzone, these naturally terraced, limestone-rich vineyards are high enough to enjoy gentle breezes coming off the Tyrrhenian Sea, which helps La Torre’s Sangiovese Grosso grapes ripen fully, while escaping heat and dryness. La Torre’s delicious, enjoyable, and traditional Brunello wines are true gems, especially at their relatively affordable price point.

Paolo Bea

Paolo Bea Santa Chiara Umbria Bianco IGT 2014 750ml

About Paolo Bea

Founded more than 400 years ago, Paolo Bea dedicates itself to indigenous Umbrian grapes —Grechetto, Malvasia, Gargenega and Trebbiano for its whites, and... Montepulciano d'Abruzzo and Sagrantino for its reds. The family-owned-and-operated Bea estate has long been a standard bearer of the Italian Slow Food Movement, and its motto is "Nature should be observed, listened to and integrated, not dominated. Wine is not made by man but generated by nature!" Because of this dedication to natural viniculture and viticulture, Bea’s team nurtures its grapes with organic, non-interventionist agriculture, and it continues that reliance on nature in the cellar, crafting its wines without temperature control and without any additives, yeasts, fining or filtration. The septuagenarian Paolo Bea is still the guiding force behind the estate, and he shares his traditional approach with his two sons: Giuseppe farms the vineyards, and Giampiero, current president of the Italian natural wine society Viniveri, heads up the winemaking. The Bea estate purposefully keeps its production low — so low that demand for its exceptional reds and outrageous whites always exceed supply. Each wine in Bea’s repertoire feels like a chapter in an ongoing story that, once experienced, you never want to stop reading!

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.
