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.

About Marchesi Antinori Tormaresca / Tenuta Bocca dio Lupo

Founded in 1998 as part of the Antinori family’s Tormaresca estate, Tenuta Bocca di Lupo is now its own distinct... entity. This certified organic 247-acre sits in the center of Castel del Monte, surrounded by the wild, sparse beauty of Murgia. Bocca di Lupo grows primarily indigenous grapes, though you’ll also find some international grape varietals for the estate’s rosé wine. Bocca di Lupo is 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. The Antinori family sees Bocca di Lupo, which literally translates to the “mouth of the wolf” and figuratively means “good luck,” as a vital part of their effort to raise the profile of Puglian wine.

Podere Le Boncie

Podere Le Boncie Le Trame Rosso di Toscana IGT 2020 750ml

About Podere Le Boncie

Podere Le Boncie might be the very definition of a boutique winery. This organic estate is tiny, a little less than ten acres situated in the hills near... San Felice in the southern part of the Chianti Classico zone. It’s wholly organic, planted to obscure clones of indigenous Tuscan grapes. Helmed by owner-winemaker Giovanna Morganti, a woman dedicated to crafting miniscule quantities of her otherworldly Tuscan wines, Le Boncie makes only three wines: Le Trame, or “the intrigues”; and Cinque, for the five grape varietals the estate grows; and Chiesamonti, a cru wine from a vineyard of the same name. When Giovanna’s grandfather gave her a small farm of olive groves in the 1980s, she chose to put her enologist training to use. Giovanna chose to plant her traditional Tuscan grapes super densely, ensuring that the yields would be naturally low, and she chose to rely on organic and biodynamic methods so that her wines would be pure, unmediated expressions of her unique terroir. Giovanna even ferments her wine in open-topped vats because she wants to honor the age-old Tuscan winemaking traditions. The resulting wines have amassed a cult following, and Giovanna sits among Italy’s finest makers of natural wines.

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.

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.

Bartolo Mascarello

Bartolo Mascarello Barolo Riserva 1961 750ml

About Bartolo Mascarello

Bartolo Mascarello’s adherence to age-old Barolo customs — which included sustainably growing his grapes, devotion to crafting cuvée Barolo from... his 12 acres of holdings, extended macerations of up to 50 days, fermenting in cement without temperature control, and aging in ancient neutral botti — distinguished him from his Barolo brethren, who flocked to more modern protocol. Bartolo’s passion for the preservation of Barolo's historic past dates back to 1918, when Giulo Mascarello founded the estate, and these methods remain the cornerstone today. While the Mascarello estate sports enviable holdings in Cannubi, San Lorenzo and Rué, located in the commune of Barolo, as well as in La Morra’s Rocche in the commune of La Morra, it still has never released a cru wine. Blending, Bartolo believed, provided balance, especially in challenging vintages. Maria Teresa, who assumed leadership of the estate in 2005 when her father passed, sees no reason to change her father’s ways (or those of his father, and his before him). After all, there’s no improving upon perfection.
