About Pasquale Pelissero

Founded in 1921 by brothers Giuseppe and Giovanni Pelissero, the tiny family-owned-and-operated Pasquale Pelissero estate entered its modern era in... the 1970s when its namesake, Pasquale, began bottling his estate-grown wines. Pasquale, or Papa, was a pioneer in Barbaresco because, at that time, few other estates were bottling their own Barbaresco. Pasquale’s daughter, Ornella, started working in the vineyards when she was just 15, and she assumed control of Pasquale Pelissero in 2007 when her father suddenly passed away. Just under 20 acres in the hills around Neive, Pasquale Pelissero grows sustainably and adheres to tradition — indeed, Ornella’s only concession to modern technology is a temperature-controlled fermentation tank. Ornella and her son, Simone, do everything at Pasquale Pelissero, from maintaining the vines to vinifying their wines in their cellar that sits near the top of the Bricco San Giuliano hill. Pasquale Pelissero crafts fewer than 4,000 cases of its tradition, terroir-driven wine a year.

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 Sassetti Livio Pertimali

While the Sassetti family have been farmers for many generations, they’ve been working as vine-growers and winemakers for four generations.... A founding member of the Brunello Consortium in 1967, Livio Sassetti inherited his family’s passion for wine, and he wanted the chance to estate-bottle his own Brunello, so in the early 1970's he purchased his own plot of land in Montosoli and founded the Pertimali estate, named for a cottage on the property. The 39-acre Pertimalli Sassetti estate now rests in the hands of Livio’s sons, Lorenzo and Luciano, who join him in the production of elegant, complex, and aromatic wines that marry the distinctive Montalcino terroir with the structure of Burgundy. In addition to Pertimali Sassetti, the Sassetti family of estates includes La Querciolina in Umbria and Colle Argento in Valdobbiadene.

About La Spinetta

For all its staid traditionalism, Piedmont holds its fair share of revolutionary winemakers. While Angelo Gaja may first spring to mind, La Spinetta... doesn’t lag far behind. Founded in 1977 by three brothers, Georgio, Carlo and Bruno Rivetti, La Spinetta quickly became a cult sensation. With Giorgio at the winemaking helm, the La Spinetta estate swiftly moved from crafting remarkably good Moscato bottlings into crafting outrageous Barbaresco, Barbera, and Barolo wines — all while positioning itself as an incendiary, polarizing figure in Piedmontese winemaking. La Spinetta passionately embraced in methodology that took every tool reviled by the traditionalists — intensive pruning, roto-fermenters, refinement in 100% new barrique. In adopting these techniques, La Spinetta was able to deliver Barbaresco that offered something was previously inconceivable: an immediately drinkable, intense, hedonistic profile. La Spinetta began crafting its ultra-ripe cru Barbaresco bottlings in the mid-1990s, branching out into Barolo in 2000, then moving into Tuscany in 2001, and eventually even adding a méthode champenoise bottling when the estate acquired the historic Contratto winery in 2011. La Spinetta's official motto is "making wines with passion," and the wines of La Spinetta have a heady, commanding, and voluptuous presence; most excitingly, these wines aren’t just the province of collectors, for the estate’s Langhe Nebbiolo and its Barbera d’Asti “Ca’ di Pian” offer tremendous pleasure at everyday pricing.
