2012 Collio Ronco della Chiesa Borgo del Tiglio

Borgo del Tiglio is one of Italy's great white wine producers. This bottling is the flagship wine and is a single-vineyard located near the farmhouse of the estate. The soils here are Ponca. Being so close to the Slovenian border the Collio shares many similarities in climate, varietals used, wine-making techniques and soils. The ponca (or flysch) runs between both countries and is a soil of marl with layers of minerals, clay, marine deposits, calcium and limestone. The wine ages in french barriques. Apples, pears and an intense minerality.

2013 Barolo "la Tartufaia" Giulia Negri Magnum

"'Serradenari is a cru within the La Morra cru of Barolo, and is the highest point in the Barolo zone. It is also the name of Giulia's family estate, which she was just entrusted with in 2014 at the age of 24. Upon Giulia’s arrival at the helm of the estate, the modest cellar was filled with small Burgundian barriques. After tasting all around the Langhe and learning from some of Barolo’s most distinguished growers, it quickly became clear that large casks were key to preserving Nebbiolo’s tension and mystical energy. With the goal of maximizing an honest expression of terroir, she has gradually replaced the smaller barrels with botti grandi. Her artisanal approach and espousal of traditional production methods extends to sustainable viticulture, eschewal of commercial yeasts and other additives, harvesting by hand, minimizing filtration, and long but gentle macerations in the cellar. "La Tartufaia" is a blend of 80% La Morra Serradenari and 20% Brunate crus, Aged 24 months in 25hl Slavonian oak barrels, named after the truffle fields Giulia's grandfather planted on the property before her father replaced them with vineyards." --importer Kermit Lynch

2014 Venezia Giulia Malvasia Damijan Podversic

Inspired by Josko Gravner, Podvsersic turned in the late 1990s from being a successful conventional modernist winemaker to low-interventionist production of beautiful orange wines. He says about this Malvasia: "By getting the glass near to the nose, we discover the shy characteristic of the semi aromatic Malvasia Istriana. All of her beauty get released from the first until the last sip in a succession of spicy and herbal aromas as green pepper and tomato leaf. The maceration begin in big barrels of oak for 60 to 90 days. Finished the fermentation it gets aged in 20 or 30 hl barrels for 3 years and rest for 1 year in the bottles. The presence of sedements is essential to keep the wine alive and to conserve it. We recommend to serve the wine with service temperature at 15°C (59°F)."
