About Tenuta di Salviano "Castello di Titignano"

Both very old and extremely new, Tenuta di Salviano is the latest venture at the Castello di Titignano property in Umbria.... Owned since 1650 by the Corsini family, the vineyards surrounding Castello di Titignano, which was built in 937, have been making fine wine for millennia. In the 20th century, the Titignano property passed into the hands of the Incisa della Rocchetta family, when Donna Nerina Corsini married Marchese Enrico Incisa della Roccetta, the family responsible for the creation of Sassicaia at Tenuta San Guido, their estate in Bolgheri. In 2015, Titignano passed to Priscilla and Giovanni Incisa della Rocchetta, the children of Nerina and Enrico; five years later, following the death of Priscilla, Giovanni decided to honor his sister’s memory with the creation of Tenuta di Salviano, a special winemaking entity dedicated to crafting fine Umbrian wines. Spanning 173 acres on the southern side of Corbara Lake in the heart of the Orvieto Classico wine region, Salviano sports soils rich in limestone and fossils and grows a combination of indigenous and international grape varietals.

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.

Marchesi Antinori Le Mortelle

Marchesi Antinori Le Mortelle Botrosecco Maremma Toscana 2021 750ml

WD91

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.

About Agricola Punica

In the late 1990s, Giacomo Tachis and Antonello Pilloni of Cantina di Santadi joined forces with winemaking legend Marquis Nicolò Incisa della Rocchetta... and bought two estates in Sardinia’s Sulcis Meridionale region. Agricola Punica was born with the 2002 release of its flagship Barrua, and Montessu followed in 2005. Today, the 420-acre Agricola Punica estate, still jointly run by Pilloni and the Incisa della Rocchetta family, continues in the trailblazing path of the late, great Giacomo Tachis, crafting outstanding wines that marry the robust allure of Sardinia’s Carignano with the elegance of international-style grapes, even adding a white, Samas, that uses the same “Super-Sardinian” principle to tremendous results.

Azienda Agricola La Torre

Azienda Agricola La Torre Rosso di Montalcino 2021 750ml

WD91

About Azienda Agricola La Torre

"La Torre" translates to "the tower," and this exciting Montalcino estate spreads across almost 90 acres in Sesti, near Sant’Angelo in Colle,... though fewer than 14 acres are under vine. Owner-winemaker Luigi Anania purchased this estate in 1976, and the winery saw its inaugural Brunello vintage in 1982, one of the truly fabled years of the last century. Anania and his team use non-interventionist practices in the vineyard and traditional winemaking in the cellar to craft La Torre’s terroir-driven, accessible wines. The most remarkable aspect of La Torre is the elevation of its vineyards. Perched at about 1,500 feet above sea level in the southwestern Brunello subzone, these naturally terraced, limestone-rich vineyards are high enough to enjoy gentle breezes coming off the Tyrrhenian Sea, which helps La Torre’s Sangiovese Grosso grapes ripen fully, while escaping heat and dryness. La Torre’s delicious, enjoyable, and traditional Brunello wines are true gems, especially at their relatively affordable price point.

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.

Tenuta Sette Ponti

Tenuta Sette Ponti Oreno Toscana IGT 2021 750ml

About Tenuta Sette Ponti

While its first vineyards were planted in 1935, Tenuta Sette Ponti came into its own in 1998 with the inaugural vintage of Crognolo, the estate’s... original Super-Tuscan release. Setti Ponti, which gets its name from the seven medieval bridges that span the Arno between Arezzo and Florence, may have been growing grapes for generations, but it took the vision of Antonio Moretti Cursari, Italian luxury goods magnate and the estate’s winemaker-owner, to start estate-bottling its wines. Spanning 250 acres in Chianti’s hills, Sette Ponti sports an ancient and unique Sangiovese clone, as well as limestone-rich clayey soils that nourish both native Tuscan and international grape varietals. Working with French consulting winemaker Gilbert Bouvet, Antonio has worked to create a range of wines, from very traditional Chianti bottlings to award-winning Super Tuscans. Antonio added to his portfolio, purchasing the 115-acre Poggio al Lupo estate in Maremma, and the 250-acre Feudo Maccari estate in Sicily, and his children have joined the family business, ensuring the future of this terrific, organically grown Tuscan estate.

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.

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.
