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!

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.

Cerbaia

Cerbaia Brunello di Montalcino 2018 750ml

About Azienda Agricola Cerbaia

Located above the fog line high on the Montosoli hill just north of Montalcino, Cerbaia is neither very large nor very old. This organic 29-acre... estate (fewer than 11 acres under vine) was founded in 1978, but despite its relative youth and diminutive size, Cerbaia is one of Brunello’s rising stars and definitely an estate to watch! Agronomist Fabio Pellegrini chose Montosoli for his estate because he saw tremendous potential in the subregion’s galestro soil because this clayey, rocky dirt was ideal for the cultivation of small-berried, thick-skinned Brunello grapes. Fabio ran Cerbaia until 2014, which his daughter, Elena, assumed control. In trading her career in finance for that of a winemaker, Elena was making a big life change, but her gamble is paying off. Cerbaia may average only 1,500 cases of Brunello every vintage, but eyes are on Cerbaia’s wines. Traditional, aromatic, long-aging, and terroir-driven, Cerbaia’s Brunello releases have everything to please the wine’s many, many fans!

Azienda Agricola La Torre

Azienda Agricola La Torre Brunello di Montalcino 2017 750ml

WD92

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.

Tenuta Marino Viaggio IGT Marche Rosso 2018 1.5L

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.

Marchesi Antinori Le Mortelle

Marchesi Antinori Le Mortelle Poggio alle Nane Maremma Toscana 2021 750ml

WD93

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.

Marchesi Antinori Castello della Sala ‘Cervaro della Sala’ Umbria IGT 2021 750ml

WD94

Marchese Antinori Castello della Sala

The stone fortress that serves as the namesake for Castello della Sala was built in 1350, but the modern age for this estate began in... 1940, when Marchese Niccolò Antinori purchased the 1,200-acre estate (495 acres planted to vine). In the late 1970s, Piero Antinori, son of Niccolò, felt inspired to create an age-worthy, complex white wine, so he joined forces with Umbrian native Renzo Cotarella, who had recently joined the Castello della Sala team. After years of tinkering, experimenting, and eureka moments, the estate’s flagship white, Cervaro della Sala was born, which saw its debut with the 1985 vintage, and a new Italian wine icon was born. But Castello della Sala isn’t limited to high quality whites; the estate’s vineyards sport fossil-rich calcareous-clay soils that, while ideal for white grape varietals, also makes for spectacular Pinot Noir. Today’s Castello della Sala crafts a range of wines that include multiple whites and reds, as well as Muffato della Sala, a showstopping dessert wine.

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 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.

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.

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.
