We're always excited to welcome new producers to our growing Italian portfolio...
...especially when they make Brunello di Montalcino as good (and affordable) as the offering from Bartoli Giusti.
Join us on Saturday from noon to 4pm when we'll showcase a varied line-up of 6 Italian wines, including 2 expressive, old-vine Montalcino cuvées from newcomer Bartoli Giusti!
For centuries, the Bartoli Giusti family has been cultivating vines to produce Brunello di Montalcino. Old maps found during the renovation of the cellars testify to the estate’s activity dating back to the early eighteenth century.
The winery is managed by Gino Antonio Focacci, an engineer, and Anna Maria Focacci, who graduated with a degree in agriculture, specializing in oenology.
This Saturday, we'll pour 2 Bartoli Giusti wines that exemplify the estate's commitment to letting its old-vine terroirs shine through: a bright but nuanced Rosso di Montalicino, and a complex, polished Brunello that's already a steal at its list price of $35/bottle.
We'll also feature wines from 4 other talented winemakers in our Italian portfolio.
We'll start with an impeccably balanced Langhe Nebbiolo from from Manzone Fratelli, a 150-year-old estate known for beautifully aromatic, classic Barolos from one of the greatest terroirs of the region.
We'll also pour 2 lovely whites: a succulent Timorasso from throwback Piedmont producer Giacomo Boveri, and a refreshing dry Verduzzo from the winemakers at Fruili's I Clivi.
Finally, we'll feature a Moradella-based blend from Mario Cavalli of Lombardy estate Piccolo Bacco Dei Quaroni.
