  • Abbazia di Monte Oliveto Maggiore

    Abbazia di Monte Oliveto Maggiore

    Founded at the beginning of the 14th century by the Sienese nobleman Giovanni Tolomei, the great monastic complex of Monte Oliveto Maggiore extends along the crest of a hill in the heart of the "Crete Senesi"; it is defined a "city in the form of a monastery" due to the size of the buildings that make it up. During these centuries the work of the monks and workers changed the surrounding area, originally uninhabited and wild. Today a beautiful countryside surrounds the monastery where cultivated fields, vineyards, olive trees and woods alternate with a "lunar" landscape marked by gullies and natural precipices. The origin of the Monte Oliveto Maggiore farm can be traced back to the founder San Bernardo Tolomei because he himself made available on 26 March 1319, as a dowry for the foundation of the new monastery, the lands he owned in the Accona area together with those of his companions, Patrizio Patrizi and Melanino. In the following decades, thanks to the donations and gifts of the new entrants, a sufficient patrimony was created for the life, development and diffusion of the young institution. Over the centuries there have been other donations and acquisitions up to the number of 27 farms all owned by sharecropping families in 1850. Due to the law L. n. 3036 of 7 July 1866, and of Law no. 3848 of 15 August 1867 which sanctioned the suppression of religious orders, all the assets of the abbey were confiscated. In the following years they were put up for auction and only in part they were bought back by the monks through a company they set up. The size and type of the land and buildings of the farm that have been preserved to date have thus been defined: 850 hectares of land, half of which are woods, pastures and uncultivated land (gullies) and the other half are arable land , olive groves, vineyards and buildings.

  • Argiolas

    Argiolas

    That of the Argiolas is a story that began in the early 1900s. It was 1906, the year in which Antonio, the patriarch, was born in Serdiana, in the province of Cagliari. A little over thirty years later, in 1938 with precision, in what has always been a land of farmers, olive groves and vineyards, the same Antonio gave birth to the Argiolas winery. By planting rows after row, joining vineyard to vineyard, we started to produce wine, always looking for quality with rigor and method. Then came the sons of Antonio, Franco and Giuseppe, who inherited from their father the passion for vineyards and wine, and they shared it and transmitted it, in turn, first to their wives and then to their own children. Today, the third generation of the Argiolas, Antonio's grandchildren, is already actively working in the cellar. After all, the recipe is simple: season after season, harvest after harvest, from generation to generation, tradition is handed down and renewed year after year. It is in this context that a broad and complete production line is born, capable, as perhaps no other, of making the most of the territory and its most typical varieties, in a perfect union. Unique wines, characterized by intensity, balance and elegance. Currently, divided into five distinct estates, the vineyards that meet the name of Argiolas reach a total extension of over 230 hectares. In respect of the environment, ecosystem and territory, research and experimentation also finds space, for vine plants that, in some cases, are even cultivated off-hand. In the cellar, excellent grapes give life to those that are called "Turriga", "Korem", "Is Solinas" and "Iselis", then again of "Costamolino", "Perdera" and "Costera", to name just a few of Argiolas labels. Wines, those that come from the Serdiana winery, extremely pleasant, qualitatively superior, and strongly faithful to the terroir of belonging.

  • Banfi

    Banfi

    It is our fondest desire that this project will be good for the people of Montalcino, good for Italy, good for America, good for all people who love fine wine.” With these words John F. Mariani declared the inauguration of the Castello Banfi winery on September 12, 1984. Deciding to establish a point of excellence in Montalcino, the Mariani family intrinsically tied Banfi to this territory and its own development. Castello Banfi represents a heritage and a unique experience in the world of viticulture and winemaking, in which a profound respect for the land and the intense desire to exalt its character resulted in multiple research projects. Perhaps the most important of these involved the attentive clonal selection of Sangiovese, the symbol of Montalcino, to show its inimitable expression and great versatility in the historic Brunello denomination. At the same time, we did not overlook the potential of the principal international varietals which find an ideal environment for an alternative expression of this place. Respect for the potential of this territory and the desire to exalt its character have always inspired our winemaking at Banfi, resulting in a prestigious selection that is uniquely characterized by a soul closely tied to this unique, inimitable, and extraordinary land. The respect of the environment and of people’s wellness has driven Banfi to being in harmony with the immediate territory, through a rational use of the natural resources and the love for the environment itself.

  • Barone Pizzini

    Barone Pizzini

    The winery represents a will to reduce environmental impact and to maximize energy savings. The architectural choices function to guarantee the ideal environment for producing wines that respect the environment. For this reason, two thirds of the building — 5,600 square meters — lie underground. This approach allowed the winery’s architect to employ bioclimatic strategies and solutions. Solar panels, a natural cooling system, the use of stone and wood, and phyto-purification of water are just some of the elements that have been employed to build it. “A winery is a little bit like a tree. We only see a part of it. The rest is in its roots underground. That’s where we find its reasons for being a building. And it’s this hidden posture that gives the architecture its energy, its cool temperature, and its vivacity. It captures them from the earth and gives them to the wine. Claudio Gasparotti , Architect and Founding Partner The estate’s 25 vineyards are scattered in different locations across Franciacorta. They cover a total surface area of 47 hectares. The average elevation of the vines is 200/350 meters a.s.l. And their average age is roughly 15 years. Every plant has its own characteristics thanks to varied exposure, elevation, and soil types. They make each one different from the rest. The subsoils are complex in origin. Some are morainic in nature while others are enriched by glacial river deposits. “The fact that we employ organic farming creates even greater potential in the substrate. Organic practices improve the vitality of the strata that the roots explore as they extend themselves over time. As they dig deeper, they find balanced, active fertility.” Pierluigi Donna, Vineyard Manager and Partner.

  • Barone Ricasoli

The name of the Ricasoli is in fact linked to the world of viticulture since 1141, the year in which the Castello di Brolio, located in Gaiole in Chianti, became the property of the family. Over the centuries, already at the beginning of the 600s there is evidence of exports to the Netherlands and England, while at the beginning of the 1900s the bottles started their first trips to China, South Africa, Costa Rica and British Africans. The history of the company is inextricably linked to a particular character, creator of one of the most successful Tuscan products in the world today, the Chianti: this is Barone Bettino Ricasoli, who, around 1830, began experimenting of a wine that, in his mind, had to be able to keep up with the great French cousins. After about 30 years of attempts, Bettino identified the "magic" formula that gave birth to Chianti, highlighting the fundamental role of Sangiovese grapes combined with other indigenous red grape varieties, such as Canaiolo and Malvasia. Today the company, led by Francesco Ricasoli, great-grandson of Bettino, is the largest of the Chianti Classico terroir, with about 1200 hectares of which 235 are cultivated with different types of vines, both native and international. Every year the production is around 2 million bottles, where the sangiovese plays a fundamental part in almost all the labels, sometimes flanked by cabernet sauvignon, petit verdot, cabernet franc and merlot, to create unique and identifying products, which represent in the world the history of true quality Italian wine.

"The place that tells passion and devotion" The vineyards, all owned by Tenuta Bastianich since 1997, are located in two distinct areas of the Colli Orientali del Friuli DOC. The first vineyard is located on the hills of Buttrio and Premariacco, in the hottest and southernmost area of ​​the Doc. Influenced by the heat from the sea, it offers the grapes for the production of our Cru wines, more full-bodied and structured, like the Vespa Bianco, Vespa Rosso, Plus and Calabrone.

  • Capitoni

    Capitoni

    The "Podere Sedime" is registered in the landed property of the Sienese territory since 1692 when it is the property of the Gherardi family (source: Siena State Archive). I could start from here and then tell the rich history of this land, of the men who owned and cultivated it, of the events that led it to be what it is today. However, I prefer to talk about the present: of my family, of our goals, of how our wine is born, because the results we obtain are the result of a passion for our work. At the end of the 1990s we increased the area planted with vines. A suitable, well-exposed plot was chosen, a beautiful mixed tuff soil speckled with many fossil shells dating back many millions of years ago when the sea was still there. We have restored the old farmhouse and, where once there was the stable of the imposing Chianina cows, they found a round house in barriques. Aware that professionalism and experience are necessary to obtain high quality wines, we have sought the advice of industry professionals who can help us lead the company towards the quality objectives we have set ourselves. Their contribution to producing the wine we have in mind was remarkable.

    It was 1967 when Giovanni Carlo Sacchet and Antonio Mario Zaccheo founded the Carpineto with the aim of producing an internationally renowned Chianti Classico. A revolution for those times. The two partners saw in Tuscany an enormous potential, where they could produce great wines by applying the most advanced techniques and increase the quality standards of the time. And they succeeded. Under their direction, Carpineto has grown to become a brand with international success that currently exports its products to 70 countries around the world. His wines of great intensity and extract, reliable and above all of constant quality over time, have had success with audiences and critics, as evidenced by numerous awards and recognitions: above all the reds, thanks to a long aging that often exceeds 6-12 months the limit required by the disciplinary rules. Innovators by tradition, Sacchet and Zaccheo, together with their families, continue to experiment, always respecting the great historic values ​​of Tuscany: the Carpineto product line includes wines from the most prestigious DOCG wines to varietal wines of great structure. Carpineto's work is constantly influenced by the deep roots of its own tradition and its historical name. The vineyards cultivated according to sustainability criteria and the cellars managed with the utmost respect for the natural phenomena of grape transformation, give life to wines that have a close link with the territory and that reflect the peculiarities of each vineyard and its name. Wines that express the aromas and characteristics of the territory in which they are born, and are kept alive and fragrant for many years. Carpineto products are the result of the use of advanced techniques, based on the science of viticulture and enology, and a consolidated "culture of the territory". About 95% of the entire production is made up of red wines, and most of this is made up of wines that have aged three years or more before their release. Today Carpineto sells about 3 million bottles.

    An iconic winery capable of representing the most contemporary Brunello di Montalcino in the world, Casanova di Neri is a wine-producing reality that over the years has made space in the panorama of great Italian wines to the sound of awards. Founded in 1971 by Giovanni Neri, a man capable of sensing the great potential of the territory, the company passed into the hands of his son Giacomo in 1991. A path of great charm, the result of a continuous process of productive and philosophical evolution, and the result of a new vision of Brunello di Montalcino that starting from tradition gets to be reinterpreted with innovation. In the vineyard, with the 63 hectares of vineyards that represent the heart of the company in no uncertain terms, it is the sangiovese grosso that controls, flanked by small percentages of colorino and cabernet sauvignon, and then also vermentino and grechetto if we consider the grape varieties white. Divided into seven distinct plots, the vineyards, enhanced in their diversity of soil, exposures and microclimate, are conducted in an extremely prudent manner, and bred in full respect of nature, environment and ecosystem. Excellent grapes - as regards the Sangiovese, the children of a careful mass selection - arrive in the cellar to be valued in every smallest organoleptic nuance, and be exalted in what the terroir and the season have been able to create. Relying on an extremely functional structure, within spaces designed in a rational manner and fully inserted in the landscape context, each production phase is constantly monitored, and the final result is given by simply extraordinary labels. From Rosso di Montalcino to Brunello, interpreted both in the basic version and in the "selections", those of Casanova di Neri are unique and very recognizable wines, which respond to names such as "Tenuta Nuova" and "Cerretalto". Full reds, powerful and at the same time of great elegance. Wines from a winery that is today one of the absolute references of the denomination and not only. Magnificent wines.

    The village of Castelgiocondo dominates from above the historic Frescobaldi estate in Montalcino, an ancient stronghold built in 1100 to defend the road that led from the sea to Siena. The property is one of the first four from which the production of Brunello di Montalcino began in 1800 and the historical importance is evidenced by the figure of the knight reported on the labels of the wines of Castelgiocondo, taken from a famous fresco by the Sienese painter Simone Martini. The artist painted Guidoriccio da Fogliano, commander of the Siena troops, who led the attack on the castle of Montemassi. A historical coincidence that saw, at the same time as the knight's deeds, the Frescobaldis begin their centuries-old adventure in the world of wine.

    The splendid Castello della Sala, the prestigious Umbrian estate belonging to the Antinori Family, stands on a promontory of the Umbrian Apennines, just 18 kilometers from the historic city of Orvieto. A place of incredible beauty and charm, which for decades has represented the heart of the production of the best Antinori white wines. It is in fact the spring of 1979 when Renzo Cotarella arrives at the Castle, a young agronomist who in less than ten years will produce the wines symbolizing the estate. In those years, an ambitious varietal redevelopment project began immediately, aimed at obtaining white wines with greater personality than those produced in the area of ​​Orvieto Classico. Work on the chardonnay and learn more about grechetto. The search for a great wine that is affirmed by character and personality almost becomes an obsession. Thus, after a series of disappointing years, the "Cervaro della Sala" was born with the 1985 season, currently one of the most well-known and appreciated Italian wines in the world. The estate covers a total area that covers five hundred hectares, of which 140 are currently planted with vineyards. Between 200 and 450 meters above sea level, on clayey soils rich in fossils and minerals, in addition to the chardonnay and grechetto varieties are also cultivated plants of prokan, sauvignon blanc, pinot noir, semillon and traminer. Grapes that are processed in the modern and avant-garde wine cellar, built in 2005. From winemaking, during which particular attention is paid to temperature control, we arrive at aging, usually done in the historic medieval cellars located thirty meters below the castle. From all this come wines like the "Cervaro della Sala" and the "Muffato della Sala", the "Conte della Vipera" and the "Bramìto", the Pinot Nero and the "San Giovanni della Sala". Labels, those that bear the name of the "Castello della Sala" superimposed, which do not need large presentations by now, and which fall by right among those that are the best Italian wines.

  • Clynelish Distillery

    Clynelish Distillery

    "The Clynelish distillery was born in 1819 in the northern Highlands, in an area formerly destined to pastoralism; when, in fact, the landowners no longer saw a long-term source of income on the farms, they decided to use their possessions for other activities more profitable, such as Whiskey production. The present Clynelish structure is due to a restructuring in 1968, followed by the closure of the old distillery; renamed Brora and reopened a few years later, the old distillery remained in operation until 1983, when the great Whiskey crisis brought it to a close: today Brora is considered by enthusiasts a Single Malt of true worship. The current distillery, which boasts stills constructed with the exact same shape as those of the old Clynelish, is focused on blended and is among the most important contributors of one of the most famous Whiskeys in the world: the Johnnie Walker owned by Diageo. Often, when one thinks of Whiskey of excellence, one goes immediately to the thought of that of Spyside and of the island of Islay, but that of Clynelish shows us that products of great value can also be found in other parts of Scotland; when the original Clynelish distillery was built in the early 1800s by the future Duke of Sutherland, the Whiskey that was produced there was so precious that it could only be used by some illustrious private individuals and even today, after many years, the production of Clynelish is considered by experts and enthusiasts of great and undisputed value. In the Clynelish Whiskey, always fresh and medium-bodied, one can almost feel the salty sea air and although there is not the pungent smoky note typical of Islay distillates, it is surprisingly intense, with a solid and harmonic structure as well as marked by a penetrating sweetness and a never banal salty imprint.

The next turning point took place in 1973, when the Piedmontese Cinzano took over the entire property and used their already extensive liquor sales network to increase sales of Tuscan estate wines. Today, over a century later, Col d’Orcia is the third largest volume producer in the whole denomination, the first in Tuscany for the extension of vineyards cultivated according to the dictates of organic farming. Despite these very important numbers, Col d’Orcia is able to express an always excellent production, of great quality not only in his “Poggio al Vento”, one of the best Brunellos in all of Montalcino, but also and above all in the rest of the line. The scenario is that of the southern area of ​​the territory of Montalcino: it is here that the 540 hectares of company property meet, of which at the moment just under 150 are planted with vines. In a microclimate protected by Monte Amiata and mitigated by sea breezes from the Tyrrhenian Sea, among the rows are hosted many autochthonous varieties, such as sangiovese, ciliegiolo and moscadello di Montalcino, as well as international grapes, such as cabernet, merlot, pinot grigio, chardonnay , petit verdot and syrah. Bunches that in the cellar are transformed with rigor and method: after a careful selection, follows the fermentation with maceration on the skins, in steel tanks at a controlled temperature. Subsequently, aging is carried out in Slavonian oak barrels and in French oak barrels, where the wine can mature for up to four years.

It is here in fact, in 25 hectares of vineyards located in the northernmost Tuscan coast, that cabernet sauvignon and merlot give wines of unforgettable depth, elegant and enveloping at the same time. Finally the last winery, that of Poggio di Sotto, became part of Colle Massari in 2011 and was born in the late 1980s, not far from Montalcino.

On soils of calcareous matrix and taking advantage of particularly favorable exposures, the grapes, picked by hand, are revealed punctually, harvest after harvest, healthy and blunt, rich and concentrated in every smallest organoleptic nuance. In the cellar, respecting to the maximum those that are the peculiarities of the raw material, each production step is carried out in the sign of the highest quality standards. The end result is sublime and each cuvée from the Dhondt-Grellet domaine represents the terroir from which it comes.

  • Dievole

    Dievole

    Dievole covers an area of ​​400 hectares, in the Chianti Classico area, 12 km north of Siena. A long avenue of cypress trees leads to the heart of the estate and from there a typically Tuscan panorama opens up: olive groves, vineyards and farmhouses alternate along a dense network of white roads and large woods. Here the dialogue between nature and man has never been interrupted and the reason explains the name itself: the root of the name Dievole, in fact, can be traced back to the meaning of "God wants". The name Dievole appears for the first time, officially, in the XI century and precisely on 10 May 1090, the day in which we read, in the contract of the notary Bellundo, "" two capons, three loaves and six denarius of Lucca were paid for good silver for the annual rent of a vineyard in the divine valley, to Dievole "". Eight centuries and countless generations later, another contract tells of Dievole and this time it is a wedding gift: Count Giulio Terrosi-Vagnoli gives the estate to his future wife, Ildegonda Camaiori, who will then be Dievole's last noblewoman . Currently Dievole has 80 hectares of vineyards, of which 55 are in production, located at an average altitude of about 350 meters above sea level and divided into 16 plots, each with a precise profile that reflects the soils, the exposures and the microclimate; another 25 hectares will go into production in the next few years, thus reaching a total of 80 hectares. The clear prevalence of the vineyard surface is assigned to Sangiovese but there are also other traditional varieties of Tuscany and of the Chianti Classico area such as Canaiolo, ciliegiolo, colorino, trebbiano and malvasia bianca. Dievole's goal, starting from its own vineyards, is to recover the character of the historic autochthonous Tuscan vines and transfer it to the glass with the utmost respect for the authenticity of the terroir and the identity of the variety.

  • Domaine d'Elise

    Domaine d'Elise

    We find ourselves around the town of Chablis, halfway (about 160 km from both) between Beaune and Paris, the capital of the wine-growing region made up of about 20 villages, among hills, small valleys and vineyards that run along the Serein river. It is the northernmost area of ​​Burgundy, with vineyards almost exclusively cultivated with Chardonnay that generate dry white wines renowned for purity and minerality. The colder climate compared to classic Burgundy produces wines with more acidity and less fruity flavors than the Chardonnay of the Côte d’Or, with those notes of "pierre à fusil", and barely metallic, which make them both recognizable and pleasant. Compared to white wines from the heart of Burgundy, Chablis is almost never vinified and aged in wood. Steel is preferred in winemaking and the choice of refining partially or completely in wood is granted to the individual producer. The AOC Chablis from 1938 did not include the petit Chablis, which then entered in January 1944. All the Chablis vineyards fall into four denominations with different levels of classification: there are only 7 Grand Cru and all located on a single hill near the town of Chablis . Fréderic Prain has created a worldwide successful company: today, especially abroad, everyone knows Domaine d’Elise. And he, the eclectic Parisian engineer, in love with his mansion in the woods overlooking the valley, made a fortune in Chablis. No Grands Crus, but despite this, has tried, over time, to optimize its selections.

The idea behind the production consists in searching for the best and most authentic characteristics in each individual terroir: this is precisely why the property operates with organic and biodynamic practices, firmly respecting the belief that “we need to have natural answers to the problems posed by nature ". The company seeks an ideal of elegance and perfection played on the harmonious coexistence of balance, harmony, finesse and personality: the combination of these four elements gives life to immediately recognizable wines that impress with the purity of the sensations they give to the palate, be they they tasted at a young age or left to mature for decades.

To give an example of the quality of the lands owned by the Faiveley company, it is enough to take into consideration the ten hectares of Grand Cru, the 25 of Premier Cru and the three excellent monopolies, terroirs owned in full and exclusively by the family, which answer to the very famous names of Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Clos des Issarts, Beaune 1er Cru Clos de l'Ecu and Corton Clos des Cortons Faiveley Grand Cru. The small and fragmented crus make only a limited production possible, but all this instead of being an obstacle has been transformed into a strong point by the Faiveleys, who obtained from the low yield a higher quality of the grapes and from the fragmentation a greater diversity of production, thus succeeding in reaching ever wider market segments. The Domaine Faiveley has always paid great attention to working in the vineyard throughout its history, taking care of the smallest details throughout the year, from winter to harvest, to ensure the ideal maturation for each bunch of grapes. In the cellar, the experience and know-how of Faiveley have allowed the Burgundian tradition to be reconciled with technological innovations, so as to arrive, year after year, season after season, to achieve what is now the extraordinary level of quality expressed by the labels with Faiveley labels.

In the vineyard, therefore, Rémy's categorical imperative is to "cultivate the vine according to the rules of the ancestors", to keep the environment intact and to transmit the vegetal, natural and cultural heritage to future generations. This translates into disease prevention with biodynamic extracts, reasoned processing of the soil and controlled grassing of the vineyards.

His cellar is located in the village of Ecueil, a few kilometers from Reims, the place where his Champagne is born, which he himself likes to define and describe as "wines in which the vigneron is involved, where the technique and savoir-faire are at service of an intention, an emotion and a perception ". Fréderic has 4 hectares of vineyards where it breeds and enhances two varieties in particular: pinot noir and chardonnay. Old vines and very close rows, therefore very high plant densities to put plants in competition and obtain few but generous bunches per vine, rich in terms of perfumes and body. The land is covered with grass to preserve biological diversity and thus maintain a varied ecosystem, with all operations carried out strictly by hand. The soils are characterized by the presence of complex clays that give the pinot noir structure and fragrances. In the cellar, in addition to the stainless steel containers, there are new barrels made of wood from a nearby forest. The choice of using new barrels considerably reduces the use of sulfur dioxide, always respecting what is the identity of the grape variety. The Champagne of Fréderic Savart are mainly produced from pinot noir and chardonnay, united in cuvée, or used in purity to tell the character of the variety used, as in the case of Brut Blanc de Noirs Premier Cru "The Overture".

In 1894 they built in Pomino, a town not far from Florence, the first Italian winery capable of exploiting the natural gravity due to the transfer from barrels and distinguished themselves in the same period by the introduction of the "specialized vineyard". In 1989 they bought the estate of Castelgiocondo in Montalcino and in 1995 they inaugurated the Tenuta Luce della Vite in Montalcino, to which was added in 2000 the Tenuta Conti Attems in Friuli.

  • Geoffroy

    Geoffroy

    The roots of the Geoffroy winery date back to the seventeenth century, and are inextricably linked to the village of Cumières, located in the heart of the Vallée de la Marne. In fact, for about four centuries the Geoffroy family has been growing grapes and producing wine in this area. Reaching more modern times, more precisely in 1950, it is Roger Geoffroy who starts a modern production of Champagne, flanked by his wife Julienne. Their son, René, will take over the reins of the winery, giving new impulses also thanks to the purchase of new parcels of land, and fully developing the concept of récoltant-manipulant reality. Today, at the head of the company, we find Jean Baptiste, exponent of the new generation of the Geoffroy family. Approximately fourteen are the hectares of vines, which develop between the municipalities of Damery, Hautvillers, Fleury la Rivière and Cumières, for a mosaic of 35 plots, some also classified as Premier Cru. Among the rows of vines, the three vines that are the symbol of the denomination are cultivated, pinot noir, chardonnay and pinot meunier, with a prevalence of the former. Geoffroy's philosophy is simple: perfect bubbles can be obtained only from healthy and mature bunches, and the goal is therefore to preserve the potential of soils. In the cellar the spirit with which you work is marked by respect, patience and extreme care for details. Before the harvest, various tests are carried out on the individual berries, so as to program the perfect time for harvesting. Every winemaking operation takes place by gravity, so as not to excessively stress the must, a "living" element that must be altered as little as possible. Every year Geoffroy produces 120,000 bottles, divided into a dozen products. "Expression", "Pureté", "Empreinte", "Volupté" and the cuvée "Rosé de Saignée" are some of the most representative labels of the cellar range, perfectly able to meet the expectations of the most demanding enthusiasts.

  • Glenfarclas

    Glenfarclas

    The Glenfarclas distillery is located in the Scottish region of Speyside, in Ballindalloch, in open countryside at the foot of Ben Rinnes; the meaning of its name is in fact "valley of the green meadow". In a production reality dominated by large economic groups, Glenfarclas still remains a family-run distillery, in the hands of the Grant family for six generations: founded as a small rural distillery by Robert Hay and legalized in 1836, Glenfarclas passed into the hands of John Grant into 1865 for just 511 pounds. Glenfarclas produces traditional Highland Single Malts characterized by strong hints of sherry and despite its apparently "rural" character, it has the largest stills of Speyside, with a production capacity of 3,000,000 liters per year. Currently, only four of the six stills are used, with two held for reserve in case of need. In its warehouse it houses around 50,000 barrels, with stocks divided into years starting in 1952! The Glenfarclas distillery has always made use of a particular pure and soft water that comes from the spring snow melt of the peaks of Ben Rinnes and that flows between granite rocks, perfect for a high quality whiskey. The characteristics that distinguish the production, in addition to the particular care in each phase, are found in the careful choice of barley, but above all in the double direct-fire distillation, an ancient method still used by very few distilleries. The production is aged in barrels of Oloroso / Fino sherry from Seville. In 2006 Glenfarclas was awarded as Distillery of the Year by Whiskey Magazine: the demonstration that one can be great in the world of whiskey while remaining independent.

Constantly supported by his tireless parents, Robert has grown the farm, obtaining awards for his wines and personal awards, without ever forgetting the right balance in the relationship between man and Nature. A philosophy that is reflected in the character of the wines and in the approach with others. The different location of our vineyards, at different altitudes, allows us to find land suitable for all white varieties, whether they are the indigenous ones that have always been present, Ribolla and Friulano, or the international ones, as well as the red and varieties they prefer the Preval plain. Added to this are the various climatic aspects, which affect the microclimate in which our vines grow. Very often when we talk about wines, we praise the French "vignerons" for having created and preserved over time that classification called "cru", which the unforgettable Gino Veronelli proposed as a need to "maintain the excellence of the municipal denominations". Few know that on 17 March 1787 a circular was issued with the "Classification of wines produced in the united principalities counties of Gorizia and Gradisca in regard to their goodness": a sort of "cru" from Gorizia. Well, our grapes come from the Collio area, located in the first three classes, out of nine total! If it is true then that "the genius of the wine lies in the vine", or that the latter gives the main imprint to the wine, it is equally true that the soil exerts a great influence on the peculiar characteristics of this "genius". We work to produce "brilliant" wines.

  • Hugel

    Hugel

    The vineyard properties of the Hugel winery reach a total of 25 hectares, and all fall within the territories of Riquewihr, a French commune in Alsace known since the Middle Ages for the great elegance of the wines produced there. It all began in 1639, when Hans-Ulrich Hugel decided to leave Switzerland, his native town, to move to Alsace, becoming in fact one of the wine pioneers of the region. With about half of the possessions falling under the Grand Cru classification, and buying grapes from the best growers in the area, currently the Hugel company is managed by Jean-Philippe, Marc and Etienne, belonging to the twelfth family generation, and is to be considered one of the most important Alsatian oenological realities, above all for the qualitative level expressed by its wines. Among the rows of vines, the vines, which reach at least the age of thirty, do not know the use of fertilizers, and the yields are kept very low, to favor the quality of the fruit. In the cellar, after a light pressing, it is the only flower must that is processed, respecting the most ancestral and traditional methods, but at the same time also using the most modern technologies available in the oenological field. Lastly, aging takes place in underground rooms, where wines rest for an average of at least two years. Exported to over one hundred countries in the world, the labels of the Hugel winery are one of the undisputed symbols of the greatest Alsatian winemaking tradition, and are the daughters of the firm corporate philosophy based on the idea that "the quality of wine is already in the grape".

  • La Montina

    La Montina

    A fantastic strip of land, enclosed between Lake Iseo and the morainic amphitheater of Franciacorta: here, more precisely in Monticelli Brusati, is the La Montina winery, a production company specialized in the production of Lombard bubbles. The origins of this winery they are very ancient, and its construction is due to Benedetto Montini, ancestor of Pope Paul VI, who, in 1620, began the construction of the central body of what is now the cellar, which then took a more modern form in recent times , thanks to the commitment of the Bozza brothers, current owners. La Montina is a welcoming, open reality, always ready to undertake new ways to grow and be competitive in a bigger market every day. The vineyards of La Montina extend over an area of ​​about 72 hectares, scattered in 7 different municipalities within the Franciacorta DOCG. The profile of the plots is almost always hilly, and the terroir is characterized by a subsoil in which there is a strong presence of limestone, silt and clay. In the vineyard the yield is kept at around 100 quintals per hectare, and great attention is paid to every single terroir; this approach has led, since 1992, to an interesting zoning study, capable of precisely defining the climatic, geographical and morphological characteristics of each plot, making the most of the combination of vine and cultivation environment. Among the rows of vines, the typical grapes of this area are cultivated, Chardonnay and Pinot Nero, grown with great care, taking care to respect the surrounding nature of the vineyards and to obtain grapes saturated with perfumes and aromas. At each harvest, from the walls of La Montina, a little less than 10 labels come out, all of Metodo Classico, in which the Franciacorta DOCG is vivisected, parcel by parcel, giving products of undoubted quality, which preserve the memories of labors, sacrifices, projects, disappointments and great affirmations. Among the different labels that deserve further study, the Reserve "Baiana", the Brut Millesimato 2011 and the Rosé Extra Brut 2010 are those that, more than others, allow you to acquire a precise stylistic vision of the philosophy of La Montina.

  • Laurent Perrier

    Laurent Perrier

    To discover the origins of the Maison Laurent-Perrier we have to go back as far as 1812, the year in which the winery was founded by André and Michel Pierlot. Located in Tours-sur-Marne, in Champagne-Ardenne, it was in 1881 that the company fortunes were written, when Eugene Laurent, a cellarer of the Pierlots, together with his wife Mathilde Emilie Perrier decided to take over the maison and take the lead, and later changing its name precisely to Laurent-Perrier. From here, between various vicissitudes, history leads us to Mary-Louise Lanson de Nonancourt first, and then to her son Bernard, who represents the true soul of champagne that can be tasted today. Characterized mainly by the use of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes - except for Cuvée Rosé made exclusively from Pinot Noir grapes - Laurent-Perrier Champagne rests at least four years before being marketed. Currently led by the daughters of Bernard, Alexandra and Stephanie Lanson de Nonancourt, the Maison now has 150 hectares of vineyards and is distinguished by a special and unique style, certainly due also to the maniacal search for perfection in all production steps, starting from the rows to get to the bottle. In the vineyard, the approach is minimalist, so we tend to grow plants while respecting the environment, nature and the ecosystem. In the cellar, the philosophy is different: the Laurent-Perrier maison has been working the grapes in steel tanks at controlled temperature since the 1950s, so as to keep the freshness and aromatic complexity of the fruit intact and unchanged. . Finally, during the sparkling process, each step is controlled with method and rigor, using the most modern enological technologies, always used without ever outclassing the most ancient territorial traditions. From Brut al Rosé, from the Vintage to the "Grand Siècle", up to the Demi-Sec and the Ultra Brut, this is how Laurent-Perrier Champagne was born: timeless bubbles, among the most prestigious that France is currently able to give .

  • Livio Felluga

    Livio Felluga

    A unique name in the Italian productive panorama, as well as a symbol of a region and its wines, it is easy to understand how the story of Livio Felluga is intertwined with that of a whole territory. This story has as its protagonist a family that survived two world wars, which witnessed the change of the borders around it, and then decided to settle on the sweet buttresses of the Friuli hills. It is here that, not far from Cormòns in the province of Gorizia, Livio Felluga had to undertake a new battle to revive the hill, convinced that only the rebirth of quality cultivation could bring life back to the Friuli countryside. With great courage he began to rearrange the old vineyards and plant new ones, introducing innovative ideas and methods. A hard job, made of stubbornness and passion, which will lead him over the years to create one of the most beautiful and significant business realities of the Peninsula, acquiring rightfully the title unanimously recognized as the founder of the Friulian wine tradition. Currently the company can count on a vast area planted with vines, which from the Collio appellation to the Colli Orientali del Friuli, covers about 155 hectares. In the vineyard, the varieties we meet are both indigenous and international, so we have Friulian and Pinot Bianco, Chardonnay and Ribolla Gialla, Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Gris, Picolit and Refosco, Pignolo and Merlot . Grapes that are transformed into what are now called the "wines of the geographical map", always reproduced on the label and depicting an old map of the farms. And then here come to life the "Vertigo", the "Nuaré" and the "Sharis", then gradually all the others, up to the "Terre Alte": wines from a winery that still today shines for quality and for the territorial character it succeeds in expressing, a veritable ambassador of the best Friulian whites - and therefore Italians - all over the world.

    Louis Roederer

    One of the last wineries in the French region of Champagne to still be owned by the same family that founded it, in 1776 in Reims, is that of Louis Roederer. The winery got its current name in 1883, when Louis Roederer himself inherited the company from his uncle, remodeling it in his own image and likeness. While others bought the grapes, Louis has staked everything on the work in the vineyard, buying the best vineyard plots, convinced to the end that the quintessence of a great wine resided in the land, and consequently tracing the fate of the Maison that since then will bring the his name. The Roederer winery boasts a property of almost 240 hectares, divided between the three best cru of Champagne, located in the villages of Montagne de Reims, Côtes des Blancs, and Vallée de la Marne, from which come the ideal grapes for its elegant and balanced wines. These two elements, the family organization and the quality of the crus, allow the company to constantly improve the quality of the grapes of pinot noir, pinot meunier and chardonnay, always aiming for excellence in their products. The Louis Roederer winery is also famous for having invented the Cristal. The invention came to satisfy the demands of the Russian tsars Nicholas I and Alexander II, great lovers of the Maison and eager to receive a supply of Champagne in pure crystal bottles. The blend quickly became the flag of the winery thanks to its extraordinary finesse and elegance, contributing in this way to creating what is the today's myth of Louis Roederer in the world. Thanks to the innovation and entrepreneurial spirit of the family, the Louis Roederer, Brut, Rosé or Demi Sec champagne became the official supplier of many monarchies and many noble dynasties from all over the world, building up the fame it still preserves thanks to the three million bottles sold every year, and thanks to the unparalleled quality / price ratio that is able to promptly propose.

About four hectares, half of which are oriented to the south and to the other half to the south / west. The blend consists largely of Sangiovese (90%), cabernet (5%) and petit verdot (5%) to soften it and enhance its aromas. The first vinification dates back to 2008. In 2015, Federico and Michela Vigni, very young - he graduated in Environmental Economics, she a student of architecture - in search of new experiences and attracted by a return to the origins of work linked to the territory, embarked on a search for land to be allocated to their future farm.

A nature shaped by the man who attributed to it the beauty that only its "expert hands" can create. The beauty of the landscape, the quality of the vineyard, the goodness of Montecucco wine and the prospect of growing a market not at the height of the product led Federico and Michela to invest in this new venture. Their first harvest was in 2015; the prospects are of a very high quality wine that adds to the excellent previous vintages already present in the cellar. The next steps will be the conversion to organic production and the construction of the new cellar.

The Marzadro family entrusted the construction of the structure to the Bolzano-based architects Walter Maurmayr and Günther Plaickner, who, based on the concept of "contemporary craftsmanship", gave life to a completely integrated structure in the surrounding territory. The roof, for example, was covered with a green carpet made up of 60,000 pre-cultivated plants, belonging to the lichen species: a solution adopted not only for aesthetic reasons, but also to guarantee a better thermal insulation of the structure, and therefore allow an important energy saving. The high value of the new plant under the ecological profile is also highlighted by the orientation in the space of the buildings, which are in fact positioned to make the most of their position with respect to the sun. In addition to facilitating the penetration of sunlight, extensive use of glass in the construction of the plant contributes to creating a sort of continuity between the external and the internal environment. These were also used to create the striking glass and metal dome that houses the hall of stills inside. All the operational phases of the distillery are carried out which were previously dispersed in various locations scattered between Rovereto and the neighboring municipalities. The new structure consists of three buildings, dedicated respectively to production and storage, to the storage of the pomace and to the administrative offices.

  • Matusalem

    Matusalem

    In 1872, the founders, Benjamin and Eduardo Camp and their partner Evaristo Alvarez believed that the key to making the rum with the finest flavor was under a process of patient aging. The name, Matusalem, derives from the old Spanish proverb, “This is older than Matusalem.” Matusalem being the patriarch of the old testament who lived for 969 years. Matusalem Rum was founded in Santiago de Cuba in 1872. Almost immediately flocks of Barn Swallows nested in the barrel aging warehouses. The Barn Swallow, or in Spanish, Golondrina, was a smooth-flying bird common to the area of Santiago de Cuba. Throughout the day it seemed Barn Swallows were everywhere, flying in and out of the aging warehouses. The swallow was also considered a free flying spirit, possessing beauty and elegance. The Matusalem founders thought it was an appropriate symbol and ultimately a most fitting logo for the Brand. For over 145yrs the Matusalem’s recipe is derived from a Spanish technique traditionally used for the craft of the finest brandy, sherry and cognacs. This patient process called “Solera” creates a softer rum and with greater flavor than the rums of the competition. Rum blends of varying ages are organized into a system of tiered casks. Oldest at base, youngest on top. Number of tiers depends on master blender’s formula and style. It is the marrying of older rums with the younger rums. The longer the aging/blending, the better. The Solera number on the bottle indicates the average age of the rums used in the blend. Today there are no more than six competitive rum brands from around the world that use Solera aging and mixture.

In the vineyard, the plants grow at an altitude that varies between 280 and 450 meters above sea level, and the soils are particularly suited to the cultivation of the vine, with their mixed composition of clay, tuff and stone. In the cellar, vinification, maturation and aging are all carefully followed, taking advantage of a savoir faire of over half a century. All the wines of Poliziano recall the historical tradition of the territory, but at the same time they were able to gain international fame and prestige. Theirs is a long story: born in the 80s, they keep the original labels but have been refined and evolved always pursuing the goal of uncompromising quality. Each wine, from Rosso di Montepulciano to the award-winning Vino Nobile "Asinone", is mainly made from Sangiovese grapes, called in the area with the historic name of "prugnolo gentile". Not only, however, recently, with the name "Terre di Poliziano", some wines have been conceived outside the historic production center, so today the labels of the winery also come from Cortona, home to some of the best international varieties of the whole Tuscany, and from Scansano, where the Sangiovese itself has shown an unexpected Mediterranean vocation.

  • Produttori del Barbaresco

    Produttori del Barbaresco

    It was already known in the late 1800s that the Nebbiolo, in the Barbaresco area, had very different characteristics from other areas of Piedmont. For this reason the then principal of the enology school of Alba, Domizio Cavazza, who lived in Barbaresco, decided to bring together some winegrowers and producers to found a social winery that could produce a different wine, given that the Nebbiolo grapes of that area began to flow into what would later become the name of Barolo. It was exactly 1894, the year in which the "Cantine Sociali di Barbaresco" were created, for the "production of luxury and meal wines". Initially composed of nine winegrowers, the cooperative began making wine by exploiting the wineries belonging to the company of the same principal Domizio Cavazza, who, in agreement with the other partners, chose to give the wine the same name as the town: Barbaresco. The cellar remained under the guidance of Cavazza until 1913, the year in which the principal died. Subsequently, the cooperative, after another seven years of activity, had to close in 1920, in the middle of the fascist era. After the war, however, it was the parish priest of Barbaresco, Don Fiorino Marengo, who in 1958 decided to take up the reins of the project started by Cavazza, refounding the town's wine cellar with the name "Produttori del Barbaresco", and bringing together about twenty winemakers who convinced of the quality of the nebbiolo of their vines, chose to join together "for the qualification and guarantee of Barbaresco". Since then, the "Produttori del Barbaresco" has enjoyed years of full success, currently has over fifty member members, and has around one hundred hectares of vineyards, exclusively planted with Nebbiolo and equal to about 1/6 of the entire area of origin. Thanks to the constant dedication of all the winegrowers belonging to the cooperative, the "Produttori del Barbaresco" is not only considered for some time among the most prestigious wineries in the territory of the Piedmontese Langhe, but is even often taken as an example of one of the best cooperatives of the whole world.

  • Prunotto

    Prunotto

    It was the beginning of the 20th century, 1904 to be precise, when the social cellar "Ai Vini delle Langhe" was founded in Serralunga d'Alba which, however, after a little less than twenty years began to have serious budget problems and was put into liquidation. In 1922, Alfredo Prunotto chose to take over the company, giving it its name at the same time. Since then, year after year, success has been uninterrupted, and the Prunotto winery has started exporting wines all over the world. In 1954, the same Alfredo Prunotto decided to cede the company to his winemaker friend Beppe Colla, who in his turn, in 1994, chose to sell the winery to the family of the Marchesi Antinori. Currently, the Prunotto estate covers a total area of ​​about fifty hectares of vineyards, divided between some of the best Piedmontese wine areas, such as Bussia, Bric Turot and Costamiole. Among the rows, the vines are treated with rigor and perseverance, raised as if they were children, and cultivated in full respect of the environment, nature and ecosystem. In the cellar, while relying on the most modern enological technologies, the main objective is always to enhance and enhance what the season and the territory have been able to express in the fruit. It is in this way that the Prunotto wine company comes to propose an important range of labels, divided between the classic line and the line of selections, the latter created to enhance the individual crus. From Barolo to Barbaresco, passing through Grignolino, Roero and Moscato d'Asti, one arrives at Barbera and Dolcetto: this is how the Prunotto wines are distinguished by one of the most prized Piedmontese and enologically speaking names. for years they have become famous interpreters of some of the most prestigious denominations of all of Piedmont and beyond, proving to be profoundly elegant and extremely refined.

  • Reverdito

    Reverdito

    The Reverdito winery's production philosophy is based on two important assumptions: excellent work in the vineyard, which brings clusters of exceptional quality; and the use, for the refinement, of vats and large woods (40 and 50 hectoliters) of the highest quality. Each nebbiolo cru from Barolo - there are seven in total - is vinified separately and differently, depending on the distinctive features and characteristics of the vineyard of origin. Nebbiolo grapes grown in the Reverdito vineyards are left free to express their most authentic nature and their terroir of origin in the cellar, to give rise to seven labels of Barolo with profoundly different traits. The vats and large barrels alternate in the cool shade of the cellar, to which, starting in 2016, some concrete amphorae are added.

  • Rocca di Castagnoli

    Rocca di Castagnoli

    Rocca di Castagnoli is an ancient Medieval fortress from which the hamlet of Castagnoli originated. This place has historically been owned by numerous families with noble coat of arms, and among these the Tempi (whose coat of arms still represents the company) and the Ricasoli. The winery, already present in the eighteenth century, has always been the economic center of the village and has always stood out for its great production quality, as evidenced by the visit, in 1773, of Grand Duke Pietro Leopoldo who praised the excellent management, the innovation and maintenance with which the land was conducted. In 1924 Rocca di Castagnoli became part of the farms that give life to the Chianti Classico Wine Consortium. Since 1981 our family has established itself by carrying out important works of replanting vineyards and renovating buildings, cellar and medieval fortress, collecting the baton of the previous historical properties giving continuity to the productive quality expressed in previous centuries. The village of Castagnoli rises from the heart of the Chianti Classico, on a hill that the Etruscans already knew very well, from there it dominates the surrounding valley from a hillock that brings back mind to ancient times, surrounded by woods, vineyards and olive trees. The company covers about 850 hectares of property with altimetric profiles ranging from 860 meters (Colle di Monte Luco) to 380 meters. The hectares of vines are 92, mainly Sangiovese, the base grape of the highly prized Tuscan wines produced. In 1981 important renovations were carried out at the Villa and at the Rocca with innovative processing criteria in the vineyards and in the cellar. A wine-making cellar was created, while the cellars of the medieval fortress were used for aging in wood, the barricaia, consisting of the best French oak woods, aimed at obtaining wines of great personality, elegance, complexity and balance from enjoy over time.

  • Sorentberg

    Sorentberg

    The two young winemakers Tobias Treis (Reil / Mosel) and Ivan Giovanett (Neumarkt / Südtirol), after 25 years of fallow, have re-cultivated the now almost forgotten single vineyard Reiler Sorentberg. The steep southern slope is located in a side valley of the Moselle and is famous for its long-standing wines. The red slate of Wissenbach is found only there and gives this Riesling its characteristic spice ". The Sorentberg is one of a kind with a total area of ​​9.48 hectares. Its terroir is an interaction of many factors that form a remarkable whole: 100 percent of the southern slope, extreme gradient with an average gradient of 80 to 110 percent, cool climate, because the mountain is in a well ventilated side valley on the Moselle river, unique soil type, the so-called Wissenbach slate (red slate with inclusions of shells), unique in the whole Moselle. During the re-cultivation work of the Sorentberg Reiler, almost 1000 old wild vines were discovered in the high and extremely steep part of the vineyard. After being left fallow for over 25 years, they could now be restored with laborious manual work: Every single Riesling grape with its true roots was freed from the thorn bushes and bred. Almost all the old vineyards were successfully sprouted in May 2012. Despite extensive research, it was not yet possible to determine the exact year of planting.

  • Speri

    Speri

    For seven generations the Speri family has been growing grapes and producing wine in Valpolicella. Authoritative and faithful interpreter of a terroir that hardly betrays, the company is now an undisputed reference point for the whole world of Italian oenology. The history of the winery begins in the first half of the 1800s, when a few hectares of vineyards were cultivated adjacent to the family home. Since its origins, the company philosophy has been well established and faithfully followed, so the Speri winery has always been considered the basis of a good wine, but it was seen as the essence of the wine itself, or as the unique material that shapes its character and outlines its soul. Today, the vineyard surface has grown exponentially, and has come to cover a good sixty hectares, but the philosophy has remained the same as its origins, as even the management of the business is still familiar. Among the rows, the rhythms of nature dictate the law, and the practices adopted are in line with the most ancient rural traditions, because cultivating the land is one of the oldest jobs in the world. The vinified grapes are only those owned, and each production phase is directly taken care of in every single detail. The continuous search for quality has led the company to practice viticulture particularly attentive to tradition and the environment. In the cellar, the belief is that the efficiency and use of the most modern technologies represent nothing without the skill of those who use them. So let's start from the Valpolicella Classico, then continue with the Ripasso, with the "Sant'Urbano", with the Amarone and with the Recioto, up to the Grappa di Amarone: from the ready-to-drink wines to those of the highest level, from sweet wines to spirits, all Speri labels are based on very high quality standards, making them recognizable among thousands thanks to a unique and unmistakable style.

  • Tenuta dell'Ornellaia

    Tenuta dell'Ornellaia

    It was in 1981 that the Marquis Lodovico Antinori, cousin of Piero Antinori, founded the Ornellaia Estate, in the heart of the Bolgheri area, a few kilometers from the Mediterranean coast. With the first harvest of 1985 was born what would become an icon among the SuperTuscans: the "Ornellaia", put on the market three years later, in 1988. With the inauguration of the company, the world-famous oenologist, Michel Rolland, begins to take care of the technical part of the cellar. Subsequently, in the 1990s the other two labels were born: "Le Volte" and "Le Serre Nuove". At the beginning of 2000, Robert Mondavi, the great Californian producer, acquires the Estate, then selling 50% to Marchesi de 'Frescobaldi, who will buy the other 50% only three years later. The end of the 2000s also sees the birth of the "Poggio alle Gazze" label, which will be followed by the highly selected late harvest wine "Ornus", made from purely petit manseng grapes. A mythical winery, therefore, which deserves credit for having written the history of Bolgheri. With almost one hundred hectares of vines, to which another thirteen are rented, the Tenuta Ornellaia has always focused on one and the same goal: quality. All the decisions, all the choices, take into account every minimum and smallest detail, and from the vineyard to the final bottling, shortcuts are not allowed. During the harvest, only the finest and most balanced bunches are selected and harvested, then in the cellar processed separately, based on the cru of origin. Then a year of rest in cask, and to follow the composition of the blend: everything is aimed at enhancing every small nuance of the terroir, and enhancing the expression of every single vintage, always respecting the continuity of what can be considered the " Ornellaia style ”, synonymous with experience, competence and determination, which in the glass translate into complexity and elegance that are difficult to match.

  • Tenuta di Biserno

    Tenuta di Biserno

    Lodovico discovered the property which would become Tenuta di Biserno back in 1995, whilst researching land suitable for extending Ornellaia. What he saw excited him but he recognised that the geology and geography were markedly different from those of Ornellaia, much hillier and stonier. This would have to be a separate project. In the event, freed from Ornellaia and with an historic change in their relationship, Lodovico entered into a technical relationship with his brother Marchese Piero Antinori and landowner Umberto Mannoni. Together, they decided to breathe life into the potentially fabulous Biserno Estate. Tenuta di Biserno was planted between 2001 and 2005 and has exceeded all expectations. This is a project which will make its mark in history. Tenuta di Biserno is a 49 hectares estate, situated in Alta Maremma, coastal, western Tuscany, nestling amongst the hills of Bibbona. It borders the historic village of Bolgheri and enjoys beautiful views towards the Tyrrhenian Sea – a special place indeed. Just on the border we find the vineyard Bellaria (beautiful air) the northern exposure of which is within Biserno with the southern exposure within Bolgheri. It is this extraordinary site which houses the celebrated vineyard of Lodovico itself, 6 hectares of spectacular terroir, within Biserno, widely regarded as the best in the area. The soil consists of what is termed Bolgheri conglomerate – a mix of mineral rich alluvial soil, active limestone, and round pebbles which provide drainage. Rather atypical for Bolgheri, there are also pockets of all-important clay. Given the terroir, and the range of soils, Lodovico planted exclusively Bordeaux varietals, principally Cabernet Franc, followed by Merlot, some Cabernet Sauvignon and surprisingly high proportions of Petit Verdot. The soil is very varied. High density, maritime sediments and clay, on well-sheltered, north-west slopes, provide ideal conditions for Merlot whilst free-draining gravelly sites, higher up, are perfect for the Cabernets Franc. Soil is obviously an important aspect of terroir, so too is the micro-climate and, an aspect of terroir often overlooked the luminosity, that helps by the proximity of the Tirrenian Sea, which plays as a mirror. Biserno enjoys excellent light and benefits from cooling breezes and perfect sun exposure. The vineyards are planted at 6,500 vines per hectare, cordon-trained, with grass between the rows to restrict the young vines’ natural vigour. Yields are restricted to 1 kg per plant = 1 bottle per plant.

  • Tenuta Guado al Tasso

    Tenuta Guado al Tasso

    Tenuta Guado al Tasso is located in the small and prestigious DOC of Bolgheri, on the coast of Alta Maremma, a hundred kilometers south-west of Florence. This name has a relatively short history (it was born in 1994) but has an international reputation as a new point of reference in the world wine scene. Tenuta Guado al Tasso covers an area of ​​1,000 hectares - 320 planted with vines, the rest planted with wheat, sunflowers and olive trees - in a splendid plain surrounded by hills known as the "Bolgheri amphitheater" due to its particular conformation. The noble family of the Della Gherardesca began to deal with wine in their lands of Bolgheri since the second half of the seventeenth century, but it is with Guido Alberto della Gherardesca, who lived between 1780 and 1854, that things really changed. A great lover of viticulture and who in 1833 became the "major butler" of the Grand Duke Leopold II, Guido Alberto dedicated himself to oenology in his lands in the Maremma. In the 1930s the land was inherited by Carlotta della Gherardesca Antinori, mother of Piero Antinori, and her sister, who was married to Mario Incisa della Rocchetta (who had a dowry from the nearby Tenuta San Guido).

Typical Tuscan landscapes, where the vineyards alternate with olive groves and woods. Hilly landscapes capable of giving life to extraordinary labels, to exclusive wines made in Italy. In Tenuta Luce, each plot has different characteristics. The altitudes range from 200 to 430 meters above sea level. The earth here varies a lot for soils, which can be traced back to three main areas: mixed clay, below; sandy-schistose, above; yellow and sandstone sands, in the middle band. Different skeletons, different balances between the nutritive elements, which we respect in every phase of soil processing: the soil, rich in minerals and organic materials, is a live support also thanks to the microorganisms and insects that inhabit it. And a living soil is the best prerequisite for the balance of the ecosystem and for the harmony of the vineyard. The first step towards the production of wines considered everywhere among the Tuscan wine excellences.

Spread over a total area of ​​about 2500 hectares, the company can currently count on ninety hectares of vineyards, which include 75 hectares dedicated exclusively to the production of Sassicaia, the latter born from an idea of ​​the Marquis Mario Incisa della Rocchetta, who wanted create a great Bordeaux-style wine. In fact, it was the 1920s, when the same Marquis, inspired by Bordeaux and by the aristocracy of the past, dreamed of producing a pure wine, a true thoroughbred. Having moved to the Tuscan estate in the second half of the 1900s, the Marquis Incisa della Rocchetta began to experiment, planting some vine plants of French vine varieties in an area that up until then had been completely unknown from the point of view of wine. From that moment, with marvelous foresight, the Marquis Incisa della Rocchetta was able to understand the potential of the Bolgheri area and of those same lands on which he had planted the cuttings, which had unique characteristics, in the microclimate very similar to the Graves area and of Bordeaux. The first vintage put on the market was that of 1968, and since then Sassicaia has achieved an unexpected worldwide fame, growing year by year. In addition to this famous wine, Tenuta San Guido also produces two other labels: the "Guidalberto", from cabernet sauvignon and merlot, and "Le Difese", an IGT made from cabernet and sangiovese.

  • Val di Suga

    Val di Suga

    The history of Val di Suga began in 1969, when a company owned by Aldo Moro acquired the agricultural land located north of Montalcino and built a production and commercial structure there. Those lands, then destined to the production of fodder, are slowly converted to vineyard, also through various changes of ownership, until in 1982 Val di Suga begins the production of wine, equipping itself with a wine-making cellar. The first vintage to go on sale is the "Val di Suga Brunello Riserva 1977". Right from the start a fast viticultural and oenological growth begins. The early eighties saw the success and expansion of the Brunello di Montalcino denomination begin. Thanks to this and to the constant effort and commitment both in the viticultural and in the oenological field, Val di Suga begins to stand out in the Chinese landscape. A few years later, in 1994, the Angelini Group arrives which will give a new impetus to Val di Suga, now awarded and internationally recognized for the high quality of its wines. But the strength and uniqueness of the winery will be determined, over the years, by the production of three vineyards, located on the three slopes of the Montalcino hills, in the areas most suited to the production of Brunello di Montalcino.
