About GAJA

Though the Gaja estate was founded in 1859 by Angelo’s great-grandfather, Angelo started shaking things up in 1961 when he assumed control of the family’s... winery. Angelo started small, but by 1967, Angelo had gained the confidence to make larger changes, beginning with the bottling of cru Barbaresco Sorì San Lorenzo, while Sorì Tildìn followed in 1970 and Costa Russi in 1978. As radical as some of Angelo’s innovations seemed, they helped to bring his wines, as well as Piemonte wines, to the notice of the international market. Today, the Gaja estate spans about 250 acres in Piemonte, with holdings located in Barbaresco and Barolo. Angelo began his transition to retirement in 2004, and winemaking duties now rest in the hands of his daughter, Gaia, who has been making bold moves of her own, dropping the Barbera component in the cru Barbaresco and Barolo bottlings, and moving towards more traditional winemaking protocol.

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 Montevertine

Just under 50 acres located in and around the rolling hills of Radda in the Chianti Classico region, Montevertine has made a powerful impact on the global... wine landscape with its cult mono-varietal bottling, Le Pergole Torte, but even more than that glowing achievement, Montevertine has exerted a kind of gravitational pull over the entire Chianti region because of its staunch adherence to traditional indigenous grapes, especially Sangiovese. Founder Sergio Manetti wasn’t looking to shift the Tuscan winemaking landscape when he bought the lands that would become Montevertine in 1967, but he planted about five acres of Sangiovese, made some wine for friends, and sent a couple of bottles off to Vinitaly as a lark. The wine was a hit, and Montevertine was born. Today, Montevertine, helmed by Sergio’s son, Martino, spans nine organically tended vineyard parcels, with the majority planted to Sangiovese, and it crafts three wines. Montevertine’s position has shifted from new guard to vanguard, and wine-lovers around the globe await every new release with bated breath.

About Marchesi Antinori Tenuta Tignanello

The Antinori family’s Tenuta Tignanello is a gently hilly property located between that the family has owned since the 1800s. This... 321-acre Tuscan estate gets its name — Tignanello — from its most famous vineyard, but its vines grow the grapes for multiple wines. When Piero Antinori was searching to add his own voice to the Super-Tuscan revolution in the late 1960s, he turned to Giacomo Tachis, the consulting winemaker behind Sangiovese, as well as Ornellaia. Piero wanted to make wines that reflected his family’s Tuscan heritage, and in 1971, Tignanello, a blend of Sangiovese, Cabernet, and Cabernet Franc, was born. Sporting marly, limestone-rich soils that show remnants of the Pliocene Period when the region was covered in an ocean, Tenuta Tignanello enjoys sunny days, cool nights, and a gentle breeze, ideal conditions for wines that sing with a true Tuscan voice.

Bruno Giacosa

Bruno Giacosa Barbaresco DOCG 1967 750ml

About Bruno Giacosa

The “Genius of Neive,” Bruno Giacosa was known as a modern traditionalist. This contradictory phrase nods both to Bruno’s making his Barolo and... Barbaresco with protocol that his winemaking father and grandfather would recognize — and to Bruno’s ingenuity, such as bottling the very first cru expressions in Barbaresco and Barolo. Above all, Bruno believed in power of Piemonte’s “old ways,” growing grapes with noninterventionist methods, fermenting without temperature control, and aging the wine in large oak vats. However, he wasn’t afraid to tinker, shortening his maceration period to about a month, using French rather than Slavonian oak, and giving his wines a lengthier maturation period. Bruno worked to make authentic, age-worthy, and serious Langhe wines, and he was one of the world’s greatest winemakers. Bruno, who passed in January 2018, started working at his father’s winery when he was 13, but he didn’t buy his first plot of land, the Falletto vineyard in Serralunga, until 1982. By that time, he’d been one of Italy’s greatest producers for twenty years, and in 1996, he purchased his lands in the famed Barbaresco plots of Asili and Rabajá, growing the Bruno Giacosa estate to about 49 acres. The Bruno Giacosa estate is best known for its rare “Red Label” releases, the estate’s Riserva bottlings, but it also crafts a range of other indigenous Italian wines, including Freisa, which it helped rescue from extinction. Today, the Bruna Giacosa estate is helmed by daughter Bruna Giacosa, who is aided by her father’s longtime enologist, Dante Scaglione, ensuring that Bruno’s legacy, and his wines, live on.
