VINIFICATION
The grapes are hand picked, crushed, and fermented, thus, preserving its fresh and young character. The grapes then undergo a cold pre-fermentation for approximately five days; total contact with the skins is maintained for about 20 days. By the time the skins are drawn off, the highly aromatic wine has obtained excellent color and structure. It is placed in cold storage for four months before undergoing the "ripasso" process, which entails fermenting the wine on Amarone must for a period of 20 days, resulting in increased color, aroma, body, and fruit flavor. Once the wine is prepared for aging, it matures for 18 months in casks and barrels, which adds complexity, structure and refinement. Afterwards it undergoes an additional month in the bottle before release.

Deliella Nero d’Avola IGT

VINTAGE
2012

APPELLATION
Sicilia IGT

AREA
Riesi, Sicily

GRAPES
100% Nero d’Avola

TASTING DESCRIPTORS
Deliella has a deep ruby-red color. The nose is full and persistent with intense spicy notes and hints of almond blossoms. The palate is dry, well structured, and full and combines the complex fruitiness of liquor-soaked cherries with intriguing spicy notes.

VINTAGE
Butera experienced an especially warm summer in 2012, particularly during the maturation of the grapes. Despite the unusual heat, there was a good difference in temperature of approximately 50°F. This contrast, paired with consistently bright sunshine and a reliably moderate rainfall, created the prime environment for the grapes to mature to their fullest potential, making them healthy and complex. The wine partially owes its unique characteristics to the location of the estate, which is situated in Sicily’s “Sun Belt”. Here the climate is manipulated by African winds and the Mediterranean Sea, creating a classic Mediterranean climate. Given these variables, the paucity of the Butera’s soils, and the area’s hilly landscape, the resulting terroir is practically perfect for Deliella, making the wine more complex with good aromatic intensity and an unbelievably well balanced structure.

VINEYARDS
Feudo Principi di Butera boasts 29 lots on its property; however, there are several designated with special status. For example, Lot 16 dedicates five of its ten hectares solely to the production of our flagship wine, Deliella. In order to produce this special wine, the lot maintains the utmost quality; if the grapes do not match the winemaker’s desired quality, no wine is produced and the winemaker skips a vintage. For our normal Nero wine we produce 80 quintals per hectare, for “Deliella” we produce 50 quintals per HE. This again will show the higher quality we produce at Butera for our top wine.

WINEMAKER’S NOTES
“Fermentation takes place in special 90-hectaliter steel tanks, which were acquired solely for the small-scale production of this flagship wine. The wine is aged in first-year French oak tonneau for 18 months, followed by a bottle aging of eight months. We do have some years – but not many – where we age a small portion of our Deliella wine in 3,000-liter barrels for style change. This is a choice I must decided upon every year.” – Winemaker, Claudio Galosi

VINTAGE
Butera experienced an unusual temperature spectrum through the 2012 growing season. The Estate endured an especially warm summer, particularly during the maturation of the grapes. However, there was a considerable shift later in the year, when temperatures reached approximately 50°F. This contrast, paired with consistently bright sunshine and a reliably moderate rainfall, created the prime environment for the grapes to mature to their fullest potential, making them healthy and complex.

VINEYARDS
Of the 29 lots there are lots of special status; Lot #24-25 & #28-29 are our Syrah lots that are around 10 HE, but we only use a 4 ½ HE area specifically for "Symposio" flagship wine. Lot #2 which is Cabernet totals nine hectares , of which we have a 3 HE area we only use for "Symposio".

WINEMAKER'S NOTES
The aging process for this elite wine begins in 90 HL steel tanks purchased for this wine. After the steel tank fermentation of 6-10 days the wine is then transferred into 2 different barrel sizes: in some years we age the wine 50% in tonneau and 3000/6000 botte for 18 months. Other years we will use more tonneau than botte. The wine is then aged in bottle for 6-8 months.

VINTAGE

APPELLATION
Friuli Aquileia DOC

AREA
Cervignano del Friuli

GRAPES
Two different clones of Sauvignon Blanc: the Italian R3 and the French Entav 108

TASTING DESCRIPTORS
Aquilis is pale straw yellow that has vibrant, green highlights. The nose shows prominent floral and herbal notes mixed with scents of fresh elderberry, papaya, and passion fruit, which are mingled with hints of mint. The palate is fresh and full, as well as well balanced with a silky texture. It reveals mouthwatering lemon meringue and crushed chalk minerals, leading to a long and refreshing finish.

VINEYARDS
Friuli Aquileia DOC exhibits two distinct characteristics: in the north there is an average clay structure and towards Grado Lagoon a more pebbly and sandy area appears. An artificial aquifer grants a continuous flow of water, salt, and mineral substances to the area’s vineyards. Our Molin di Ponte vineyard sources the grapes for Aquilis. Here there is a nine-hectares (22 acres) lot of 108 French Clone (#jo06); however, only a two-hectare (five acres) area is used for Aquilis. Within this lot, there are different training systems and soils employed to produce what is called our premier Cru of Sauvignon. Lot #jo06 also has two rows of vines for R3 Italian clone that are utilized for making this wine. In a separate 3.5-hectare vineyard (#mu05), there are another 1.5 hectares (3.7 acres) dedicated to Aquilis. Lastly, there is lot #jo16 – a 4.6-hectare are, where 2.5 hectares are used for this wine.

WINEMAKER’S NOTES
“What makes this wine special is how we make five to six distinctly separate styles of wine, all of which are from hand-picked grapes. When blended – each clone ferments separately with 80% in steel and 20% in oak – the produce the highest quality wine in Friuli. The vats that are not approved for Aquilis are blended into a batch of our Sauvignon Blanc. This is why each vineyard and clone is produced separately. Though we use three different vineyards, only the top performer of each of the three vineyards can produce this world-class white wine. And this is the most exciting part of my job as winemaker: the unpredictability. Each harvest is different from one another, and each vintage always brings something new to discover.” – Winemaker, Marco Rabino

The palate is dry and pleasantly fruity with a fresh, aromatic note on the finish.

VINTAGE
Our Tenuta Ca'Bolani Estate is favored with a cool and damp spring, which delivers frequent rains and below average temperatures. These abnormal conditions during the bud break create an irregular growth of both cluster and foliage. Temperatures begin rising in late June and develop into a dry, scorching hot summer. Many parts of Friuli-Venezia Giulia suffer from this oppressive heat, causing yields to be much lower than expected since the plants are heavily stressed. Fortunately, in the Aquileia zone, the presence of aquifers and underground streams provide an ample water to supply the vineyards, particularly the older ones. With their deep roots, our vines are able to survive and benefit from the hot and sunny summer, creating satisfying vintages in terms of both quantity and quality.

VINEYARDS
Friuli Aquileia DOC exhibits two distinct characteristics: in the north there is an average clay structure and towards Grado Lagoon a more pebbly and sandy area appears. An artificial aquifer grants a continuous flow of water, salt, and mineral substances to the area's vineyards. However, the key factor to this extraordinary wine is our alluvial soil. It is a loose soil, which has been shaped and reshaped by water erosion and redeposited in a non-marine setting. Alluvial soil or (Alluvium) is typically comprised of a variety of materials, including fine particles of silt and clay and larger particles of sand and gravel. This soli is found throughout the entire Tenuta Ca'Bolani Estate.

WINEMAKER'S NOTES
"The production process of our Prosecco is quite different compared to other wines: the grape juice, which is only filtered and un-fermented, is stored at 32°F from the time it is harvested until its fermentation. The wine ferments in 60,000-liter stainless steel tanks using the Martinotti Charmat method. This process, though quite extensive, maximizes the product's freshness and preserves the natural, delicate, fresh, floral, and fruity aromas of the Glera grapes. By following this method, we guarantee the wine's freshness year-round. The only challenge we face is an element of unpredictability. While each harvest is different from one another, each vintage always brings something new to discover." – Winemaker, Marco Rabino

VINTAGE
2011

APPELLATION
Toscana IGT

AREA
Radda in Chianti, Siena

GRAPES
65% Sangiovese and 35% Cabernet Sauvignon

VINIFICATION
The grapes are slightly over-ripe because they are picked late (2nd – 8th October) after a previous selection to discard the less promising bunches. The must ferments for 10 days in vertical vinification tanks, where the wine then remains for 15 days to macerate after the fermentation. Maturation takes place in new, two year-old barriques for 14 months, followed by an extra six months in stainless steel tanks and another six in the bottle.

VINTAGE
The 2011 Vintage was exceptionally successful: the estate experienced a warm summer and enjoyed helpful rains in winter and spring. Temperatures were ideal during the maturation period in September and October. This allowed for a wonderful maturation of the late harvest Cabernet Sauvignon and was one of the best years seen in the last five years. The perfect temperature range in September provided an excellent perfume and elegance to the 2011 Acciaiolo Sangiovese.

VINEYARDS
Altitude is the key factor at Castello d’Albola for Acciaiolo 2011 vintage; it directly relates to the amount of sun exposure reaching the vines, which influences fruit quality. In this regard, there are two considerations: one is the angle of the land and the other is the land’s natural open hilltop. The vineyards’ geological angles allow for the optimal exposure to the sun’s rays. Our many different angles are ideal for Sangiovese, which exposes the vineyard to the sun from dawn until dusk. An open hilltop with no windbreaks helps keep fungal problems and insects at bay, thanks to the constant breeze. These combined factors help distinguish Acciaiolo as an elegant blend of Sangiovese made from old vines, grown in an outstanding vineyard named after the “Acciaiuoli” family, who lived on the estates in the fifteen century. The three-hectare (seven acres) vineyard of Sangiovese is 450 meters (1475 ft.) with southerly exposure, which gives the wine the stamp of tradition, history, and of the terroir. The exceptionally ripe, richly flavored Cabernet Sauvignon comes from a vineyard, which is four hectares (ten acres) at 350 meters (1150 ft.) called “Vignale”, which is off the beaten path of the main vineyards of Albola.

WINEMAKER’S NOTES
“This 50% Sangiovese, 50% Cabernet Sauvignon Super Tuscan is the ultimate jewel in Radda. This is my premium wine, which combines the elegance of Sangiovese with the expressivity of Cabernet Sauvignon. Its structure is very concentrated, but is nicely balanced by full-bodied fruits, hints of plums, and a suggestion of undergrowth. For some time now, this exclusive wine has only been produced in the best vintages and in very limited quantities. The wine is aged 12 months in 225-liter French oak; half the wine is aged separately in new barriques and the other half in second year barriques. This barrel-aging is followed by six to 12 months of aging in the bottle.” – Alessandro Gallo

Our Chianti Classico Riserva has a full garnet-red color. The nose is ample with delicate fragrances of red fruits, violets, irises, licorice, wood spice, and earth. The palate is full and balanced, showing notes of almonds, tobacco, toasted wood, bright red fruits, sweet herbs, exotic spices, and delicate minerals that lead to robust tannins and a long finish.

VINTAGE
The 2011 Vintage was exceptionally successful. Though the estate experienced more rain than usual in the winter and spring, overall, the summer was warmer and dryer than in the past. Temperatures were ideal during the maturation period in September and October: the average high during harvest in September was 72°F with a low of 60°F; October saw an average high of 72°F and a low of 52°F. Typically, September at Castello d'Albola, Radda in Chianti has an average high of 80°F and low of 60°F; for October the temperature averages a high of 70°F and a low of 59°F. As a result, this perfect temperature range added an excellent perfume and elegance to the 2011 Chianti Classico Riserva.

VINEYARDS
Due to its size, this nine-hectare (22 acres) vineyard is completely cultivated by hand. The vines for the Riserva are, therefore, treated as a single-estate vineyard, and valuable time is dedicated to it, guaranteeing high quality results. The land itself, which is comprised predominantly of clay-based soil, sits ideally atop a steep slope, allowing for excellent sun exposure. One can detect the high altitude of the vineyard in this wine's finesse, the heat of the earth in its depth, and the nuances of woodlands in its extraordinarily elegant bouquet.

WINEMAKER'S NOTES
"The 2010 Riserva grapes were handpicked and fermented using our traditional methods. After fermentation and maceration, malolactic fermentation transpired in steel tanks. The wine did not go through clarification or filtration, and was placed in oak casks to age for two years. While 10% was aged in 225-liter French oak barriques for one year, the remaining wine underwent one year in a 3,400-liter Slavonian oak barrel, called "botte". Made from the finest Sangiovese grapes at our estate, its tannins give the wine its extraordinary texture, and are as concentrated as the fruit is mellow. The 2010 shows a distinct tangy quality on the palate and rich fruit on the nose, with evolved tones of fruit and dried flowers. It is a wine that expresses perfectly the terroir of our Chianti Classico zone." – Alessandro Gallo

Vin Santo del Chianti Classico DOC

By | | No Comments

Vin Santo (pronounced Vin san-toh), which means "holy wine", has various theories surrounding its origins. One of the most famous stories tells of a Franciscan monk, who would use it to celebrate Holy Mass. Later, it was more-commonly known for its "holy" or curative power regarding the treatment of ailments.

APPELLATION
Chianti Classico DOC

AREA
Radda in Chianti, Tuscany

GRAPES
Trebbiano Toscano and Malvasia del Chianti

VINIFICATION
Although Tuscany is not the sole Italian region making the passito dessert wine Vin Santo, the best-known version originates in Chianti Classico, and while Sangiovese grapes can yield both red and rosé styles, Castello D'Albola produces a wine comprised of a blend of Trebbiano and Malvasia Bianca. To create our unique blend, the hand-harvested grapes are first carefully selected and then are dried in ventilated rooms. The length of time the grapes are dried influences the degree of desiccation and, hence, potential levels of residual sugar for a given alcohol reading. After being set to dry for approximately four months, the wine is aged for eight years in 180-liter chestnut barrels called "Caratelli". The barrels are not changed and are used multiple times over their lifetime. Fermentation occurs inside the barrels, which are covered with a deep red wax, keeping the wine unexposed. Approximately 2,000 bottles are made annually.

COLOR
Golden amber with rich, luminous reflections

BOUQUET
Intense and complex; perfumed with scents of raisins combined with aromas of apricots, figs, dried fruit, wood, and honey fused with aromatic notes of a great personality

TASTING DESCRIPTORS
Altemura has a dark ruby-red color, accented by violet hues. The nose shows peppery notes, combines with more complex aromas of wild berries, forest floor, and cloves. The palate is warm with a silky, layered finish.

VINTAGE
Compared with past years, 2011 was a unique vintage mainly due to the ample winter rainfall, which was polarized by remarkably high temperatures in the spring. The summer was characterized by surprisingly cool nights – approximately 59°F – while the day temperatures reached between 86°F and 95°F. The vintage was dry and devoid of almost any rain, with the exception of a brief wet spell in mid-August, which assisted in the development of the vines. Therefore, these Primitivo di Manduria grapes are more elegant with greater acidity, enabling longer bottle aging.

VINEYARDS
The vineyards are nestled in the heart of the region of Puglia. The land itself sits at an elevation of 230 ft above sea level, and the soil is a mixture of clay and chalky gravel. Because it is situated between the Ionian and Adriatic Seas, the estate experiences a maritime climate, which is characterized by warm days, cool nights, and northerly winds. Temperatures range on average from 48°F in the winter and 80°F in the summer. Our Primitivo di Manduria grapes are trained following the Guyot method.

WINEMAKER'S NOTES
"Before being harvested, the grapes matured on the vine until October. Once they were matured, they were hand-selected and delicately pressed. The must obtained underwent fermentation for 21 days under controlled temperatures, ranging from 77°F to 82°F. When vinification was completed, the wine aged for fourteen months in 350-liter French tonneau, which was then followed by an aditional period of aging in bottle before being released." – Winemaker, Antonio Cavallo

TASTING DESCRIPTORS
Rocca di Montemassi is an intense, ruby red with vivid garnet reflections. The nose is complex and reveals cherry, plum, and currant with notes of violet, eucalyptus, vanilla, and sweet tobacco. The palate has a rich presence of elegant, fresh fruit with full and plush tannins, leading to a long and mineral-rich finish, showing spicy, toasted notes.

VINTAGE
Cool temperatures and a substantial amount of rainfall until mid-July characterize 2012; these elements helped the vines to grow fresh, optimum grapes. During the summer months – August in particular – the temperatures rose to the highest experienced in ten years, and were carried along by the strong and hot Scirocco wind from North Africa. The exceptionally high temperatures accelerated the ripening process of the grapes, requiring an earlier-than-expected harvest.

VINEYARDS
From experience, we know early harvests are preferred for Petit Verdot and Syrah, which together truly characterize the blend. The blend is further enriched by Cabernet Sauvignon and a marginal amount of Merlot, giving this wine its great aromatic complexity, a must for this wine to be classified among the noble international wines. The vines for this wine are espalier arranged with Guyot pruning for Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Petit Verdot varieties; Spurred Cordon is used for the Syrah variety. The green management is imperative and carried out by hand, with meticulous care and special attention paid to leaf stripping, tipping, and thinning of the grapes.

WINEMAKER’S NOTES
“The 2012 Rocca di Montemassi, whose name comes from the name of our winery, is celebrated for its floral and red fruit aromas, as well as its undertones of dark mature fruit and balsamic. The wine offers good acidity, strength, and intensity, and the tannins are sweet, forgiving, and smooth. The most unique aspect of Rocca di Montemassi 2012 is its softness, velvetiness, and its volume. It is aged for one year in tonneau, where half of the wine is aged in new oak, while the other half may see second- or third-year oak. I taste each, and then decide which portions to blend. However, it is my opinion, that this wine is the true essence of excellence. Four grape varietals can produce one bottle of wine, and its taste captures the sunshine, wind, and terroir in that bottle. The greatest pleasure, however, is being able to enjoy it.” – Winemaker, Federico Giovannetti
