Leonardo Bussoletti, a native of Umbria, has spent the last 25 years in the world of wine, starting out as brand ambassador for a few wineries from central Italy. In the early 2000s he decided to devote himself full time to viticulture, having fallen in love with the native varietals of his land, Ciliegiolo di Narni and Grechetto. He believed that they had the potential for greatness and set to work to unleash their potential. Today he farms some 18 acres, all certified organic, with the vines ranging in age from 10 to 30 years old. This wine is 100% Ciliegiolo di Narni, bright, fresh, and highly aromatic.
Our Lugana Maiolo is made from Turbiana grapes and takes its name from the Cascina Maiolo farm, founded in 1710.
The grapes for this wine come from moderately young vines, trained using the Silvoz and Guyot systems and with an average annual yield of around 10,000 kilos of grapes per hectare. The limestone-based soil with strata of clay, dating from the post-glacial era, together with manual picking, soft pressing and temperature-controlled fermentation, confers on this Lugana distinctive characteristics, such as its straw-like color with greenish highlights, its delicate scent and its tangy flavor.
Pair with shellfish and seafood, which can be also used as a condiment in a plate of pasta or risotto; slightly fatty boiled fish.
100% Nebbiolo grapes grown in the hills above Barbaresco. Delicate perfume with aromas of dark cherry and black pepper and a hint of tobacco from a fine cigar.
Elegant and fully ripe with intense fruit and wonderful structure and balance.
Aged two years in oak and one year in the bottle, this wine is drinking very well now
and will age for many years.
"Plump and permeated by rose, cherry, raspberry, iron, tar and tobacco flavors, this red has power and intensity. Assertive tannins emerge on the finish, yet this has plenty in reserve. Shows a fine purity and harmony. Best from 2024 through 2042. 1,050 cases made, 500 cases imported." -BS
Wine Spectator Top 100 2021- #30
Light garnet in color with faint orange hues around the edge of the glass.
Rosehip and violet notes; wild berries, cherry, balsamic accent and an essence of forest floor when you swirl it. At the first sip it is surprisingly soft and smooth. The trick here is to open the bottle a few hours or a day before serving. Your patience will be rewarded with intriguing elegance and a long, silky finish.
Ripe plum and fresh cherry flavors are supported by nice mineral tannins which give this wine great elegance. Let it open and it becomes succulent with a lovely long finish. This wine will age nicely, but it is so delicious and tempting it is hard to wait.
$1 from every bottle will go to the PlumpJack Foundation during the month of October.
Deep ruby red. Elegant, with notes of red and dark fruit with spicy aromas. Well structured, with rich, concentrated flavors of currant and wild berries set against a backdrop of silky tannins.
Outstanding served with roasted or grilled red meat, lamb, polenta, mushroom risotto and semi-hard cheeses.
Light red garnet with a slight brick hue in the glass. Pomegranate, eggplant skin, carob chips, and an earthy baked clay note on the nose. The palate gets more mineral richness than fruit mostly due to the sandy volcanic soil where the vines are growing. The finish is clean and the tannins not intrusive. This wine can handle a wide range of food preparations.
Color: light brown with an amber hue. – Nose: bouquet of vanilla with spicy, citrusy and dried fruit notes of almond, raisins and cloves. – Palate: well-rounded, rich vanilla taste that picks up the aromas from the nose. Combines well with the bitter orange, dates, cocoa beans and saffron flavours. – Alcohol content: 16.5%
"Rich, fruity and enticing, this sweet vermouth is warmed with notes of fig and dried cherries, and just faint hints of spiced gingerbread and bitter orange peel. Drinkable solo as an apéritif, or use it as a cocktail-mixing favorite."- Wine Enthusiast

100% Sangiovese. A typical example of a pure Sangiovese, red with purple reflections, with interesting aromas of plum, cherry, and currant. It is persistent, pleasing and versatile with great balance and finish.
An elegant, original and inimitable personality. Rich in red fruit mixed with notes of licorice typical of the variety. Great harmony with anything from traditional pesto to charcuterie to cherry pie.
"Bright medium red. Pungently perfumed nose offers violet, lavender, Szechuan pepper, lemongrass, blood orange and small red berries. Then juicy and very fresh flavors similar to the aromas, plus a building licorice nose, linger impressively on the medium-bodied mouthfeel. Closes with magical, persistent inner-mouth perfume and truly exceptional clarity and cut. This sees no oak whatsoever and therefore the wine's magical perfume is really allowed to shine through. A real knockout of a wine and easily one of the two or three best Perricones I have ever tried." 95 Points Vinous
Chambers and Chambers
Bright red, young and intense. The aroma is pleasantly fresh with scents of dark fruit, exotic white fruit and hints of spices. On the palate, depth blends with the perfectly ripe tannins. The finish is greatly balanced, revealing the excellent aging potential.
"Shows fine depth, with cherry, black currant and wild herb flavors, accented by iron, earth, leather and tobacco notes. Muscular, despite a slim frame, with a long, savory aftertaste." 95 points Wine Spectator
Chambers and Chambers
Very young deep red. Very intense nose: Hints of red fruit, particularly cherry, are perfectly related to the usual balsamic notes of the Tenuta Nuova. Endless at the palate: Rich, deep and full bodied with an extremely pure fruit. Then savory with a bright acidity masterfully melting with vibrant and pawing tannins. The finish let us understand a very long life for this great vintage.
"Aromas of blackberries, cherries, violets and bark with mahogany. It’s full-bodied and chewy with intense tannins that are layered and focused. The fruit is pure and purposeful, yet not over done. Wonderful strength and purity to this. Class is the word. Try it after 2024." 99 Points James Suckling
Light gold with green accents in color. Mint, dill, sage, grapefruit and cherry blossom, with a distinct flinty minerality on the nose. Those characteristics are also evident during the tasting, making this wine a perfect summer day aperitif as well a good companion for light food fare.
Incrocio Manzoni Bianco, which is a cross between Riesling and Pinot Bianco
