About Canalicchio di Sopra

Canalicchio di Sopra’s history is also the history of Montalcino. Once a sharecropper, Primo Pacenti founded the estate in 1962 on land that his... family had worked for generations. Primo was proud to be one of the original twelve members of the Brunello Consortium; when he retired, Primo handed Canalicchio di Sopra to his son-in-law, Pier Luigi Ripaccioli, and since 2001, the estate has been run by Pier Luigi’s three children, Francesco, Marco, and Simonetta. 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 of the highest altitudes in the Brunello region and possess a superb range of microclimates. “Elegance” is the watchword at Canalicchio di Sopra, and this maker delivers, vintage after delicious vintage.

Miani Merlot Buri Colli Orientali del Friuli 2020 750ml

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.

About Tenuta San Guido

The global fame of Super-Tuscan Sassicaia’s fame has obscured its decades-long emergence into the world. After making his home at Tenuta San Guido,... located in Bolgheri, Marchese Mario Incisa della Rocchetta noticed that the soils at his estate were rocky, reminiscent of the soils in Graves, Bordeaux. In 1944, he was struck with the inspiration to plant Cabernets Sauvignon and Franc, and for more than two decades, Mario made his Bordeaux-style wine solely for family consumption. Then Mario engaged esteemed enologist Giacomo Tachis to perfect the wine, and Sassicaia was born with its 1968 vintage. 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. Year in and year out, Sassicaia holds its place as one of the most beloved, collectable wines in the world, and Tenuta San Guido’s sterling reputation only grows more lustrous.

About Comte de Vogüé

Comte de Vogüé can trace its roots to 1450, but even more impressive is that Comte de Vogüé holds an unwavering position as a leader in fine... Burgyndy wine. One of the most important, most influential, and most consistent Burgundy estates, Comte de Vogüé has a long and storied history, and today the twentieth generation of the Comte de Vogüé family, Claire de Causans and Marie de Ladoucette, the granddaughters of the late Comte Georges de Vogüé helm the estate with the aid of winemaker Jean Lupatelli, who took over in 2021 when François Millet left to start his own domaine. Housed in Chambolle-Musigny, Comte de Vogüé owns 17 acres of the famed Le Musigny vineyard, about 80% of Comte de Vogüé’s holdings, and the vines average 40 years of age. In addition, the domaine boasts prime holdings in Bonnes-Mares, Chambolle Amoureuses, and both premier cru and village-level Chambolle-Musigny. Utilizing non-interventionist techniques in the vineyards and in the cellar, Comte de Vogüé continues to raise the Burgundy bar ever higher with its pure, terroir-driven expressions.
