Castello Bonomi

Castello Bonomi Franciacorta Brut Cru Perdu DOCG NV 1.5L

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.

Tenuta Marino Di Monterado

Tenuta Marino Viaggio IGT Marche Rosso 2018 1.5L

WD91
About Tenuta Marino: Capitalizing upon Chris Marino’s experience working in Michelin-starred restaurants and Marjorie Marino’s international background in marketing and management, the couple... recognized a rare opportunity to forge the life they wanted in Le Marche, finding the property that would become their Tenuta Marino in 2017. Located a short drive from the Adriatic resort town of Senigallia, Tenuta Marino is new to the world, but what this estate lacks in history, it more than makes up for in microclimate and natural beauty. Just fifteen organically tended acres, the Marino estate holds multiple olive groves and 8 acres of vineyards planted to indigenous grapes Sangiovese and Montepulciano, as well as both red and white international varietals. The estate’s debut wine is its crisp mono-varietal 2018 Sangiovese Rosé, but Marino has since released three reds and will soon release its two Metodo Classico sparklers as well. Poised to make the most out of its sea-swept, sunny hillside vineyards, Tenuta Marino has a bright future for its winemakers — and for lovers of Italian wine.

Canalicchio di Sopra

About Canalicchio di Sopra

One of Brunello’s old guard, Canalicchio di Sopra was founded on land acquired by a former sharecropper, and Primo Pacenti, who started... Canalicchio in 1962, was one of the people who made Brunello the wine it is. Primo handed Canalicchio di Sopra to his son-in-law, Pier Luigi Ripacciolo, and since 2001, the estate has been run by Pier Luigi’s son, Francesco, who has raised Canalicchio’s game to outstanding heights. 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 the highest altitudes in the Brunello region and possess sterling microclimates that protect their vines from too much heat, snow, or rain, as well as aberrant weather like hail. “Elegance” is the watchword at Canalicchio di Sopra, and this maker delivers, whether the estate’s the cru Brunello La Casaccia, a bottling that debuted with the 2015 vintage; its normale Brunello; its Brunello Riserva; or its Rosso di Montalcino.

Paolo Scavino

Paolo Scavino Bricco Ambrogio Barolo DOCG 2016 1.5L

One of our favorite things about Scavino is the price to quality ratio. While many of the older wineries – the big names that Scavino sits at the table with – command pricing beyond $150 per... bottle, the wines from this estate are definitely in a more affordable range. These are designed for all consumers thanks to the use of neutral French oak, which allows for early drinkability without the extra flavors. The result are wines that truly represent each vineyard and the Langhe terroir. Instead of waiting 20 years to drink them, you could start drinking them in as little as 2-3 years… very exciting!

Cerbaiona Brunello di Montalcino 2017 1.5L

Cerbaiona Brunello di Montalcino 2017 Deriving almost entirely from the fruit of Cerbaiona’s oldest vines, the estate’s seductive 2017 Brunello reflects its warm growing year with an open-knit,... juicy, and scrumptious profile. This Brunello shows remarkable balance and freshness, but its strongest asset is its full-throttle, drink-me-now personality that allows for almost immediate approachability (decantation is key); this is not a wine for the ages, but it will provide tremendous enjoyability over the medium term!

Ducru-Beaucaillou

Chateau Ducru-Beaucaillou 2eme Cru Classe Saint-Julien 2019 1.5L

About Château Ducru-Beaucaillou

One of the all-time great “Super Second” Bordeaux estates, Saint-Julien’s Château Ducru-Beaucaillou is a majestic, Victorian-style... castle that stands one of the lasting symbols of the Médoc. While many Bordeaux châteaux get their names from their owners, Ducru-Beaucaillou’s name derives from the large stones that punctuate its vineyards and characterize its terroir. Ducru-Beaucaillou is one of the oldest Médoc estates, dating back to the thirteenth century; classified as a Second Growth in the original Bordeaux Wine Official Classification of 1855, the estate’s modern era began in 1941, when the Borie family purchased the estate, and they own Ducru-Beaucaillou to this day. The estate’s 247 gravelly acres are planted to Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, and the vines average 40 years. The château hand-harvests its grapes and vinifies each lot separately in stainless steel, fermenting in concrete, and then blending and aging in bottles. The result is classic age-worthy, intense, balanced, and harmonious Saint-Julien Bordeaux, a favorite of collectors around the world.

Fontodi

Fontodi Flaccianello IGT 2020 1.5L

About Fontodi

Tenuta Fontodi has everything going for it: amazing history, terrific microclimates, outstanding skill, intense passion, and great people. The estate sits the... Conca d’Oro, or golden bowl, an ideal spot for winegrowing, and the Manetti family, who has owned the 200-acre Fontodi estate since 1968, has roots in Chianti Classico that date back to 1398, the year when Chianti had its very first official designation. Although the Manettis have been terracotta makers longer than they have been vintners, their love for Toscana drives both pursuits, and, indeed, Giovanni Manetti, Fontodi’s owner-winemaker, has been the president of the Chianti Consorzio since 2018. Fontodi has made some radical changes in recent years, including removing the Cabernet Sauvignon component of its Vigna del Sorbo, making it pure Sangiovese, and opting to vinify some of their wines in amphorae. Certified organic, thoroughly traditional, and utterly bewitching, Fontodi’s wines stand as the epitome of Tuscan elegance, and that never goes out of style.

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.

Opus One

Opus One Napa Valley 2017 1.5L

About Opus One

In 1970, two titans of wine came together in a chance meeting at a hotel on the Big Island of Hawaii. A little less than a decade later, Opus One was born. How... could this Napa Valley estate be anything other than the cult phenomenon that it is? After all, it’s not every day that Baron Philippe de Rothschild of Bordeaux’s of Château Mouton Rothschild and Robert Mondavi of Napa Valley’s Robert Mondavi Winery join forces to create a singular Bordeaux-style blend that unites the New World terroir of its Oakville vineyards and the Old World style of its historical roots (in the 1990s, the winery began occasional releases of a second wine, the nonvintage Overture). In 1984, the first two vintages of Opus One hit the markets as both the 1979 and 1980 bottlings saw release. The wine became an immediate collector classic, and more than forty vintages later, Opus One remains one of the most expensive, most collectible, and most lauded Napa Valley wines. While Robert Mondavi sold its half of Opus One to Constellation Brands in 2004, but the Rothschilds retain the other half, and Opus One continues to hold onto its status of one of the greatest cult collector wines from California.

Domaine Francois Raveneau

Domaine François Raveneau Chablis 1er Cru Butteaux 2009 1.5L

About Domaine François Raveneau

One thing about François Raveneau is that this taciturn vigneron did things his way. In 1948, François united the last of his family’s... Chablis parcels with those of his wife, a member of the Dauvissat family, to form the estate that still bears his name. François was the first of his long line of winemakers to estate-bottle his own wines, and the wines he made were so extraordinary — and so miniscule in quantity — that to experience them was a Chablis-lover’s dream. François dedicated his life to securing outstanding vineyards and to producing the best, most terroir-driven wines he could make. He didn’t care about fame or fortune, and he refused to export his wines to the States until the 1980s! Today, the estate is run by François’ three children, vigneron Jean-Marie, his brother Bernard, and Bernard’s daughter Isabelle. The estate still makes tiny quantities (just 3,000 cases a year) from its 20-acres of mostly grand cru and premier cru vineyards, still handpicks its grapes, and still shuns the limelight in pursuit of making extraordinary Chardonnay wines.
