About Luigi Maffini

Although its roots stretch back to the 1970s, the modern age of Luigi Maffini began in 1996 with the release of the estate’s first bottling of Kratos,... the winery’s lauded mono-varietal Fiano. Husband-and-wife team Luigi and Raffaella Maffini own and operate this Campanian estate, which has two vineyard sites, one located in Castell’abate, on Cilento’s coast, and the other in Guingano, which is more inland. The coastal area south of Napoli has been recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and the Luigi Maffini estate honors this natural beauty by growing their grapes organically in order to sustain biodiversity and to create pure, unadulterated expressions of their Campanian homelands. Planted mostly to indigenous Aglianico and Fiano, along with some Sangiovese and Piedirosso, the Luigi Maffini estate spans just over 35 acres of hilly terrain that overlooks the Tyrrhenian Sea and that serves as home to a plethora of wildlife, including hedgehogs, wild boars, foxes, and rabbits. Luigi started his namesake estate with the dream of crafting wines that embody the rugged, natural beauty of Campania, and his estate now boasts six beautiful wines, each one a brilliant southern Italian gem.

Tenuta San Guido

Tenuta San Guido Le Difese Toscana IGT 2021 750ml

WD93

Tenuta San Guido

Sassicaia is arguably Italy’s most famous bottle of wine, and its maker, Tenuta San Guido, is Italian wine aristocracy. Sassicaia and its Super-Tuscan... revolution changed the face of Italian wine — and it catapulted Tenuta San Guido into the highest echelon of wine producers. Today, Marchese Nicolò Incisa della Rocchetta continues in his father’s footsteps even as he prepares to hand over San Guido estate to his son, Sebastian Rosa. Over the years, Tenuta San Guido expanded its vineyards to encompass 190 acres, planted to Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, and the estate expanded its lineup to include “second” wine Guidalberto and entry-level Le Difese. Debuting with the 2000 vintage, Guidalberto holds fast to its ideal of accessibility upon release, but over the years, it has grown more refined, polished, and elegant. Le Difese, debuting with the 2003 vintage, does the work of the estate's "everyday" wine, but when Tenuta San Guido makes it, the “everyday” wine is still a reason to celebrate. Tenuta San Guido’s outstanding Guidalberto and Le Difese bottlings add even more luster to Italy’s premier Super-Tuscan estate.

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.

Marchesi Antinori Tormaresca / Tenuta Bocca di Lupo

Tormaresca, the Antinori family’s Puglia estate, founded in 1998, began with two parts: the 247-acre Tenuta Bocca di... Lupo, which sits in Castel del Monte in the wild beauty of Murgia, and the 1,235-acre Masseria Maìme in Salento, close to the Adriatic Sea. In time, Antinori split these estates, bottling Bocca di Lupo as its own entity, while expanding Tormaresca to include additional inland vines at Tenuta Carrubo, located in Manduria. Growing both indigenous and international grape varietals, Tormaresca draws from these 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 and Bocca di Lupo are 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. Together, these sites craft a range of delicious, terroir-driven Puglian wines that pack a punch at their relatively low price points.

Marchesi Antinori Castello della Sala

Marchesi Antinori Castello della Sala Muffato Umbria IGT 2019 500ml

WD93

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.

Poderi Aldo Conterno

Poderi Aldo Conterno Il Favot Langhe Nebbiolo 2020 750ml

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.

Tenuta Fanti

Fanti Brunello di Montalcino 2019 750ml

WD93

About Tenuta Fanti

While the Fanti estate sprawls across 740 acres in Castelnuovo dell'Abata, which sits southeast of the town of Montalcino, it’s very much a family... enterprise. The Fanti family has lived on and made wine from these lands for more than 200 years, working as sharecroppers before current winemaker-owner Filippo Fanti assumed control of the family’s lands in the 1970s. Just over 120 acres of Fanti’s property is devoted to vine-growing (about 60 acres also grows olive trees), and the Fanti family relies on organic agriculture to tend to its vines. Filippo is very much a hands-on winemaker, and he designed the cellar to reflect a combination of tradition and innovation, selected his aging casks with an eye to quality, and chosen to use lightweight glass bottles to reduce the carbon footprint of the estate’s wines. Today, Filippo’s daughter Elisa works alongside her father, and together with their team, the Fanti estate crafts deeply authentic, terroir-driven wines that reflect the family’s philosophy of putting nature first.

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.

Domaine Jean-Marc Pillot

Fourth-generation vigneron Jean-Marc Pillot is something of a rockstar in Chassagne. After studying at the Lycée Viticole in Beaune, Jean-Marc began... working with his father, Jean Pillot, in 1985 and he assumed control of the estate six years later. Jean-Marc has strived to leave his own personal imprint on his domaine’s wines while remaining true to the history of his father’s estate. Over the past few decades, Jean-Marc has taken his vines organic, built a new wine cave, tinkered with vinification and elevage, and moved to fermenting with only indigenous yeasts. He has also expanded the estate to about 30 acres of land, with grapes coming from an additional five or so acres coming from trusted négociants. While Jean-Marc Pillot’s holdings are mainly in Chassagne, the domaine also has vineyards Puligny, Santenay, Meursault, and Remigny, and though the estate primarily crafts white wines, it is well known for some spectacular reds. Recently, Jean-Marc’s son Antonin has begun assuming control of his father’s estate, ensuring the Pillot family’s legacy of pure, traditional, expressive white Burgundies.

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.

Miani

Miani Rosso Colli Orientali del Friuli 2020 750ml

WD93

AboutMiani

Miani’s Enzo Pontoni stands head and shoulders above most of his winemaking peers — both literally and figuratively. The nearly seven-foot tall Pontoni towers... in the vineyard, but he knows his vines on a first-name basis, and as a result, he crafts some of the most hard-to-get wines in Italy’s Colli Orientali del Friuli. Enzo thinks each individual vine possesses its own microclimate, and he tends to his individual plants with individualized care, something that includes possibly the most assertive green harvests in all of Italy. Where other winemakers would leave several bunches of grapes on a vine, Enzo leaves one, maybe two. Where other winemakers would garner a few thousand bottles of wine from a plot, Enzo will get a few hundred. Famously reclusive and shy, Enzo owns only nine acres of vineyards but rents another 22, and he produces fewer than 1,600 cases a year, and that’s 1,600 total cases, spread across his various bottlings. Enzo works with a number of different varieties, from Chardonnay to Ribolla Gialla to Tocai Friulano to Sauvignon Blanc, but he also makes some evocative reds, including his Merlots and Refoscos — all of which inspire collectors to snap them up upon release. No matter the Miani wine, they’re extraordinarily rare, explosive, cult-inspiring, and delicious.

Gaja Barbaresco DOCG 1970 3.75L

About Gaja

The Gaja estate was founded in 1859 by Angelo Gaja’s great-grandfather, but in 1961 Angelo assumed control of the family’s winery and put it on the path to... glory. At first, Angelo chose to bottle only estate-grown wines, reduce crop sizes, and decrease fermentation periods, but by 1967, Angelo began to make larger changes, like the bottling of cru Barbaresco Sorì San Lorenzo, with Sorì Tildìn following in 1970 and Costa Russi in 1978. In the mid-1970s, Angelo began aging his wines in barriques, and he replaced some prime Nebbiolo vines in Barbaresco with Cabernet Sauvignon for his Darmagi and Chardonnay for his Gaia & Rey. Angelo’s boldness brought international notice to his wines, as well as Piemonte wines. Throughout his career, Angelo refused to play by any rules but his own; he never compromised on the quality of his wines; and he succeeded wildly. 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, all in the single-minded pursuit of crafting wines of outstanding excellence.
