About Marchesi Antinori Tormaresca

When purchasing Tormaresca, the Antinori family’s Puglia estate, in 1998, the took a two-prong approach: the 247-acre Tenuta Bocca di Lupo... sits in Castel del Monte in the wild beauty of Murgia, and the 1,235-acre satellite called Masseria Maime in Salento, close to the Adriatic sea. Growing both indigenous and international grape varietals, Tormaresca draws from these two 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 rests in the capable hands of CEO, enologist, and winemaker Renzo Cotarella and his team, who work 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 also makes an entry-level red, Trentantelli, as well as Pietrabianca, a white, and Kaloro, a mineral-laden rosato; each wine represents a different facet of Puglia, one of Italy’s great undiscovered gems.

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.

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.

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 Baricci

One of the original members of the Consorzio del Vino Brunello di Montalcino, Baricci is also one of the best small Brunello producers. Nello Baricci passed the... estate to his son-in-law, Pietro Buffi, who recently gave the reins to his son, Federico. The Buffi family makes wines that are true to type, honest and real. Baricci uses non-interventionist practices in farming its Galestro Schist-based 29-acre (12 under vine) vineyards that sit at about 850 feet above sea level, and it uses traditional methods in the cantina too: fermenting in temperature-controlled stainless-steel tanks, and aging in medium-sized oak botti. Traditional and family-owned-and-operated, Baricci's output every vintage is tantalizingly small, although in recent years Baricci has added a riserva bottling to its lineup and built a new cellar facility to help increase both the quality and quantity of its fine wines. With a yearly production of just 2,500 cases, Baricci's wines are hard to find, but their complex, delicious palates make them easy to enjoy, and definitely a bang for your Brunello buck!

About Canalicchio di Sopra

Canalicchio di Sopra was founded on land acquired by a former sharecropper, Primo Pacenti, but before Primo purchased the land that would become his... estate in 1962, his family had worked on the land for generations, and Primo was proudly one of the original twelve members of the Brunello Consortium. As he retired, 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 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 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.

Fontodi

Fontodi Meriggio Colli Toscana Centrale Bianco IGT 2022 750ml

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.
