About Produttori del Barbaresco

Known as the “Queen of Wines,” Barbaresco as we know it came into being more or less synchronically with Produttori del Barbaresco. A wine... collective of around 55 members, Produttori del Barbaresco began at the end of the nineteenth century with about nine vine-growers, and this group shaped Barbaresco’s identity as we know it today. The Produttori disbanded in the 1930s because of war and Italy’s fascism, but it reformed in 1958, and today this collective, which covers more than 250 acres, is arguably the finest wine collective in the world. The Produttori is dedicated to growing Nebbiolo, and in every vintage, it produces a blended Barbaresco as well as a Langhe Nebbiolo — in very fine years, the group also crafts up to nine cru Barbaresco Riserva bottlings. Consistent high quality, traditional methods, and true telegraphing of terroir work together to distinguish Produttori del Barbaresco’s wines, and Barbaresco lovers, critics, and connoisseurs can’t get enough of this collective’s remarkable, authentic wines.

Fontodi

Fontodi Chianti Classico 2020 750ml

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, 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.

Marchesi Antinori Tormaresca

Tormaresca Bocca di Lupo Fiano Puglia IGT 2022 750ml

WD93

About Marchesi Antinori Tormaresca

When purchasing Tormaresca, the Antinori family’s Puglia estate, in 1998, the took a two-prong approach: the 247-acre Tenuta Bocca di Lupo... sits in Castel del Monte in the wild beauty of Murgia, and the 1,235-acre satellite called Masseria Maime in Salento, close to the Adriatic sea. Growing both indigenous and international grape varietals, Tormaresca draws from these two 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 rests in the capable hands of CEO, enologist, and winemaker Renzo Cotarella and his team, who work to craft wines that transmit the region's unusual volcanic terroir. Bocca di Lupo, the flagship Aglianico wine from Tormaresca’s Murgia site, may be the most famous of the estate’s releases, but Tormaresca also makes an entry-level red, Trentantelli, as well as Pietrabianca, a white, and Kaloro, a mineral-laden rosato; each wine represents a different facet of Puglia, one of Italy’s great undiscovered gems.

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.

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.

Olivier Leflaive

(sometimes also called Olivier Leflaive Frères or Maison Olivier Leflaive or Domaine Olivier Leflaive) An eighteenth-generation vigneron and a member of the... Leflaive family, Olivier almost has Puligny-Montrachet in his blood. Domaine Leflaive, one of Burgundy’s most august houses, was founded in 1717, and Olivier worked at his family’s estate while quietly striking out on his own, buying some plots in the Côte d’Or and forging relationships with grape growers. About a decade after Maison Olivier Leflaive opened its doors in 1984(Domaine Olivier Leflaive would follow), Olivier left Domaine Leflaive, eventually joined by his brother Patrick, his daughter Julie, and other family members. Over time, Olivier expanded his holdings to 64 acres of estate-owned vineyards, mostly in Puligny-Montrachet, Chassagne-Montrachet, Meursault, and Pommard; Olivier also leases plots or buys grapes grown on an additional 182 acres of vines. Alongside his chief winemaker, Franck Grux, Olivier and his team crafts wines from 82 climats, including the iconic grand crus of Bâtard-Montrachet, Chevalier-Montrachet, and Montrachet. Olivier Leflaive takes a plot-focused approach to its winemaking, showcasing the terroir and placing an emphasis on purity — and this approach has paid off in wines of tremendous elegance, structure, and nuance.

Poggio di Sotto Brunello di Montalcino 2019 750ml

About Poggio di Sotto

Founded in 1989 by Piero Palmucci, Poggio di Sotto lays claim to some of the best vines, the finest microclimates, and the greatest biodiversity to be... found in the densely populated Brunello di Montalcino region. Studies done in conjunction with the University of Florence have found about 120 different biotypes of Sangiovese Grosso growing on the estate’s 115 acres (50 under vine). But this stunning biodiversity — the source of the brightness, intense aromatics, and complexity in the estate’s wines — is just the start. Poggio di Sotto is also home to some of the region’s oldest vines, which average about 50 years of age. These factors combine with the steeply sloped, south-facing vineyards located in Castelnuovo dell'Abate, located in the southeast Brunello subzone in the shelter of nearby Mount Amiata, as well as the soil’s composition of gravel and clay in lower vineyards and sandy clay near the top of the hill. Together, the biodiversity, vine age, microclimate, and soil composition create an ideal environment for the crafting of exemplary, finessed, and powerful Brunello. Now owned by ColleMassari, Poggio di Sotto continues to craft its deeply balanced wines with very traditional methods.
