2012 Cornas Guillaume Gilles

Guillaume Gilles is convinced that Cornas is at its best when made in the most traditional way. He rarely de-stems, works his vineyards by hand, ages his wine in old demi-muids and bottles without fining or filtering. His wines are made using indigenous yeast. The vines for this cuvee are on the higher slopes of the Chaillot vineyard. There is a mixture of soil types and expositions. This wine is brawny, sometimes austere, profound and sauvage, the way Cornas should be.

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
