About Cantina del Taburno

Cantina del Taburno is located in Campania, on the slopes of Monte Taburno which overlooks the town of Benevento just 15 miles away. This area is all... about the wonderful indigenous grapes of Campania like Falanghina, Fiano, Aglianico and Piedirosso. The rich soils, the incredibly balanced weather this region enjoys regularly and, of course, the particular microclimate the slopes and nearby mountains create make for some incredibly delicious wines. The winery at Cantina del Taburno was founded in 1972, but the vineyards had long been a part of what was called the “Consorzio Agrario di Benevento” (Agrarian Consortium of Benevento) which was established in 1901. At the time, these Consortiums were vital for the survival of Italian grape growers as the most of them were too poor to grow grapes, make and bottle wine AND do sales. It was a group effort that was common in all of Italy and ensured all could benefit. While most producers in northern and central Italy managed to become independent quickly, the south has been making their mark only now in the last 15-20 years and they are coming up strong. Today the estate boasts 600 hectares of land and covers all corners of the Sannio wine making region around Benevento.

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 Agricola Punica

Giacomo Tachis is almost single-handedly responsible for not only the creation of Super Tuscan styled wines, but for helping the region create the market... around it. He has consulted on hundreds of similar projects from the 1970s until his death in February of 2016. In the 1980s Giacomo had many projects already underway in Tuscany and his eye went to the island of Sardinia as the next place to explore for great winemaking. This region was already a place where great wines were being made and he wanted to dive right in. During one of his visits to southwestern Sardegna – in a region called Sulcis – Giacomo found the right place to execute his plan of great Sardinian winemaking. In collaboration with an existing winery called Cantina di Santadi, Giacomo Tachis started to play around with the native Carignano grape and began making local wines to better understand their nature. He saw huge potential in blending the Carignano grape with other varietals like Cabernet Sauvignon which he would soon start doing. It took a few decades, but finally Tachis was able to join the Tuscan style with that of Sardinia and in 2002 the famous Sassicaia family invested in Agricola Punica.

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. Helmed by Renzo Cotarella, the Le Mortelle team crafts a range of five fine wines using both international grape varietals like Cabernets Sauvignon and Franc, Carménère, and Voignier, as well as Vermentino and Ansonica. 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 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.
