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.

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 Marchesi Antinori Tormaresca

Winemakers for more than 600 years, the Antinori family has owned Tormaresca, its Puglian estate, since 1998. Tormaresca boasts three sites:... Tenuta Bocca di Lupo in Castel del Monte in Murgia, Tenuta Carrabo in Manduria, and Masseria Maime in Salento, the first inland and the latter two closer to the Adriatic Sea. Growing both indigenous and international grapes, Tormaresca draws from these two locations to create wines that offer a finessed style that bridges traditional Italian and international wine profiles. As with most of Antinori's estates, Tormaresca rests in the capable hands of CEO, enologist, and winemaker Renzo Cotarella, who works to craft wines that transmit the region's unusual volcanic terroir. Bocca di Lupo, the flagship Aglianico wine from Tormaresca’s Murgia site, may be the most famous of the estate’s releases, but Tormaresca makes a range of wines, and each represents a different facet of Puglia, one of Italy’s great undiscovered gems.

About Marchesi Antinori Prunotto

Located in the rolling hills of Alba, Piemonte, the Prunotto estate epitomizes the timeless beauty and effortless elegance of the Langhe.... Founded in 1904, Prunotto began as a wine cooperative formed in Serralunga and presided over by Alfredo Prunotto. Beppe Colla assumed control of the estate in 1956 and expanded Prunotto’s success with a savvy strategy of researching the finest vineyard sites, purchasing the best grapes, and experimenting with cru bottlings. The Antinori family started distributing Prunotto’s wine in 1989 and assumed control of the estate in 1994. In a project spearheaded by Albiera Antinori, Prunotto recreated itself with an eye to wines defined by very specific terroir. Albiera began researching and purchasing specific vineyards, eventually amassing 161 acres that spread across the Langhe and Monferrato, with holdings in the legendary Barolo vineyards of Vigna Colonnello, Bussia, Bric Turot, as well as Barbera’s Pian Romualdo, Barbaresco’s Secondine, and many more. Under Albiera’s careful stewardship, Prunotto has not merely regained its former glory — it has surpassed it, cementing this venerable winemaker as one of the very best that Piemonte has to offer.

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.

About Fontodi

Tenuta Fontodi has everything going for it: amazing history, terrific microclimates, outstanding skill, intense passion, and great people. The estate sits the... Conca d’Oro, or golden bowl, an ideal spot for winegrowing, and the Manetti family, who has owned the 200-acre Fontodi estate since 1968, has roots in Chianti Classico that date back to 1398, the year when Chianti had its very first official designation. Although the Manettis have been terracotta makers longer than they have been vintners, their love for Toscana drives both pursuits, and, indeed, Giovanni Manetti, Fontodi’s owner-winemaker, has been the president of the Chianti Consorzio since 2018. Fontodi has made some radical changes in recent years, including removing the Cabernet Sauvignon component of its Vigna del Sorbo, making it pure Sangiovese, and opting to vinify some of their wines in amphorae. Certified organic, thoroughly traditional, and utterly bewitching, Fontodi’s wines stand as the epitome of Tuscan elegance, and that never goes out of style.

About Produttori del Barbaresco

Known as the “Queen of Wines,” Barbaresco as we know it came into being more or less synchronically with Produttori del Barbaresco. A wine... collective of around 55 members, Produttori del Barbaresco began at the end of the nineteenth century with about nine vine-growers, and this group shaped Barbaresco’s identity as we know it today. The Produttori disbanded in the 1930s because of war and Italy’s fascism, but it reformed in 1958, and today this collective, which covers more than 250 acres, is arguably the finest wine collective in the world. The Produttori is dedicated to growing Nebbiolo, and in every vintage, it produces a blended Barbaresco as well as a Langhe Nebbiolo — in very fine years, the group also crafts up to nine cru Barbaresco Riserva bottlings. Consistent high quality, traditional methods, and true telegraphing of terroir work together to distinguish Produttori del Barbaresco’s wines, and Barbaresco lovers, critics, and connoisseurs can’t get enough of this collective’s remarkable, authentic wines.

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. This estate is home to three of Antinori's  crown jewels: Solaia, Tignanello, and Chianti Classico Riserva.

Badia a Passignano

One of the Antinori family of estates, Badia a Passignano sits on just over 550 acres in the heart of Chianti Classico, in Sambuca Val di Pesa, a few miles... south of Antinori's Tignanello estate. As you'd expect from the Antinori family, this Chianti estate is a superb site for growing Sangiovese, Toscana's most emblematic grape, and making Chianti Classico Gran Selezione, the crème de la crème of Chianti’s wines. Like a fairytale fortress in the heart of Chianti Classico, Badia a Passignano's stone walls rise out of a thicket of cypress trees, and this former abbey, originally built in 395, has played home to the Vallombrosian order, an arm of the Benedictine monks, for centuries — in fact, the Vallombrosian monks, who specialize in viniculture and forestry, continue to live on the premises. In 1987, the Antinori family bought the land surrounding the abbey, and the Antinori family uses the abbey’s ancient cellars to age its Chianti Classico Gran Selezione.

About Grattamacco

Founded in 1977 by Piermario Meletti Cavallari, Grattamacco is a powerhouse producer of Super-Tuscan wine, yet this Bolgheri estate remains somewhat of an... underdog. Grattamacco is Bolgheri's second Super Tuscan estate — only Tenuta San Guido, whose Sassicaia vineyards abut those of Grattamacco, preceded it — and it has always held a special place in the hearts of savvy wine lovers. Grattamacco, now owned by ColleMassari who also owns Poggio di Sotto in Montalcino, spans 67 acres across one of Bolgheri’s only hills. Grattamacco may rest in the shadows of its more famous neighbors, but its wines are first class, and in-the-know buyers snap up the estate’s small output of elegant, finessed, and silky every chance they get.

About Domaine Bitouzet-Prieur

Family-owned-and-operated, Domaine Bitouzet-Prieur has long roots in Burgundy, but aside from a new winery finished in 2020, very little about... this Volnay estate has changed. Founded in 1804 by the great-great-grandfather of the current owner-winemaker, Vincent Bitouzet, this 29-acre estate is dedicated to crafting long-aging, classically styled Burgundies, and it has earned a sterling reputation for making outstanding, profound wines. Vincent works alongside his wife, Annie, and son, Francois; they use non-interventionist practices both in the vineyards and in the cellar, farming organically, foregoing pesticides and herbicides, and they rely on natural yeasts and employ very little new oak. Vincent’s wines are complex, elegant, age-worthy, and exceedingly pure — the house style for both its red and white Burgundy would be entirely recognizable to his forebears, and this mindful adherence to traditional Burgundy is what makes connoisseurs and collectors seek out Bitouzet-Prieur wines.
