Paolo Scavino

Paolo Scavino Bric del Fiasc Barolo DOCG 2004 750ml

One of our favorite things about Scavino is the price to quality ratio. While many of the older wineries – the big names that Scavino sits at the table with – command pricing beyond $150 per... bottle, the wines from this estate are definitely in a more affordable range. These are designed for all consumers thanks to the use of neutral French oak, which allows for early drinkability without the extra flavors. The result are wines that truly represent each vineyard and the Langhe terroir. Instead of waiting 20 years to drink them, you could start drinking them in as little as 2-3 years… very exciting!

About Biondi-Santi

Without the Biondi-Santi family’s Il Greppo estate, Brunello wouldn’t exist. Clemente Santi made the first wine called Brunello in 1869, and his son... Ferruccio further isolated the BBS1 clone of the Sangiovese grape, which the family had named “Brunello,” or the little brown one. Ferruccio, who founded the Il Greppo estate in 1880, dedicated his life’s work to crafting a long-aging monovarietal wine with this grape. Tancredi Biondi-Santi, Ferruccio’s son, brought Brunello to the world and instilled practices like “topping off” aging bottles of Brunello Riserva. Franco Biondi-Santi, who passed away in 2013, maintained the estate’s traditions and created a legacy in the process. Today’s Il Greppo is helmed by Jacopo and Alessandra Biondi-Santi, Franco’s children, though French corporation EPI holds a majority stake in the estate. Under this new control, Biondi-Santi’s vineyards are being replanted and upgrades are being made to the cantina; however, the 67-acre Il Greppo estate continues its practice of crafting fine, age-worthy Brunello and captivating Rosso di Montalcino wines. Indeed, the estate extended the aging time of its Brunello from five to six years, and it’s started special paired releases of a recent Brunello Riserva with a mature bottling, both commitments to the belief that while time may pass, but a Biondi-Santi Brunello is eternal.

Bartolo Mascarello

Bartolo Mascarello Barolo 2004 1.5L

About Bartolo Mascarello

Bartolo Mascarello was an intractable defender of traditional Barolo, the “last of the Mohicans,” in his words. Bartolo made Barolos that... gorgeously embodied their vintage and their terroir, and these supple, powerful, and nuanced wines have captivated their fans for generations. Since Bartolo’s passing in 2005, his daughter Maria Teresa Mascarello has helmed the cantina at 15 Via Roma, the legendary site of the Bartolo Mascarello estate since its founding in 1918, and under her leadership, Mascarello’s Barolo, Dolcetto, and Barbera have grown even finer, subtler, more detailed, and spellbinding. While the Mascarello estate sports enviable holdings in Cannubi, San Lorenzo and Rué, located in the commune of Barolo, as well as in La Morra’s Rocche in the commune of La Morra, it still has never released a cru wine. Blending, Bartolo believed, provided balance, especially in challenging vintages. Maria Teresa sees no reason to change her father’s ways (or those of his father, and his before him). After all, there’s no improving upon perfection.
