Italy | Tuscany | IGT Toscana By planting Pinot Nero in limestone at high elevation, he has found an unlikely home for the grape, yielding a singular rosso that is anything but international in style.
Italy | Sicily | IGT Terre Siciliane Grottafumata means “smoky caves” and that's exactly what I think about when I swish this around. Grown in volcanic soils, it's a perfect balance between smoky tannins and Sicilian grapes.
France | Loire | Sancerre Previously blended into the domaine’s Sancerre rouge, the 2018 vintage is the first separate bottling of this unique vineyard, a successful experiment if there ever was one.
Italy | Liguria | Rossese di Dolceacqua The 130-year-old vines at Poggio Pini deliver Alessandro Anfosso’s greatest wine: a deep, silken Rossese that marries floral, smoky, and spice elements, culminating in a mouthwatering, stony finish.
Italy | Liguria | Rossese di Dolceacqua The single-vineyard Luvaira showcases vines planted in 1905 for a bold, savory expression of this historic appellation, rife with suggestions of stones, faded flowers, leather, and game.
Masseria del Pino
Italy | Sicily | Etna Rosso It’s immediately likable as it draws you in for another glass: fun, folksy label, vibrant berry and spice aromas, meticulously crafted using ancient methods.
France | Provence | Côtes de Provence Contrary to the usual rough and tannic reds of the far-reaching Côtes de Provence appellation, this is fresh and lively! A gem hidden in the hills.
Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe
France | Southern Rhône | Châteauneuf-du-Pape The majesty of the La Crau vineyard is encapsulated in this wine. I can't think of a grander expression of Southern Rhone terroir to be enjoyed this winter.
Italy | Tuscany | Chianti Classico This is delicious Sangiovese from the Greve zone of Chianti Classico and made by some of the nicest and most talented people you could ever hope to meet.
Catherine & Pierre Breton
France | Loire | Bourgueil There isn’t a spot in the world better suited for Cabernet Franc, and their old vines produce the raw material for one of the best reds in the Loire valley.
Italy | Piedmont | Barolo Giulia’s painstaking attention to detail in these sandier-soil parcels, and deliberate choices in the cellar, result in wines with a fine grain, spiced tannins, and a celestial nose of peony and rose petal.
Italy | Piedmont | Barolo La Tartufaia is a divinely atmospheric truffle forest in the heart of La Morra where Giulia’s vineyards run parallel. The wines produced here, from clay-rich soil, are textbook examples of classically structured Barolo typical of the area.
Italy | Piedmont | Barolo The Barolos of Serralunga are renowned for their power and longevity, and while Porro’s Gianetto is not the unyielding, tannic beast of old, it will certainly benefit from a few years in your cellar.
Italy | Piedmont | Barbera del Monferrato Luscious, mouth-filling cherry fruit, a strong soil signature, and smooth tannins make this the perfect Barbera to cure your weeknight Italian craving.
