  • Ciabot Mentin di Clerico is a great DOCG red wine, a Barolo of exceptional structure, elegance and surprising longevity. Many even claim that it should be forgotten for a little while, once acquired, and stored in the cellar, in order to later discover all of its potential and marvellous expressions.

    This wine brings us to the municipality of Monforte d’Alba, into the cellars of Domenico Clerico: Ciabot Mentin is obtained from the vineyard of the same name, situated within the Cru Ginestra where a part of the land has taken its name from a small country dwelling the so-called ‘ciabot’, which was owned by the Fiore and Mentin brothers.

    The ground is rich in limestone and clay and confers on the wines balsamic tones, conferring delicate tannins that are also pleasantly hard, which is typical of the cru in this municipality.

    Ciabot Mentin is undoubtedly the expression of refinement and great class.

    The nobility derives from the raw materials: the grapes are selected from vines that are over fifty years old. Maceration is followed by a long ageing process in barriques and French oak barrels (24-30 months) and then approximately two years of bottle ageing.

    The result is a Barolo of an intense garnet red. The nose intoxicates with scents of red fruit, black cherry and plum, a robust aromatic profile with notes of oak, eucalyptus, coffee and licorice. On the palate it confirms every expectation: an intense, engaging, noble and persistent taste.

    Ciabot Mentin has already obtained numerous awards from national and international wine critics, confirming its excellence and refinement.

    A convivial wine that is certain to be appreciated by guests.

  • In addition to the Tenuta di Trinoro, this is the other highlight of the estate.

    At the beginning, between 1997 and 1999, this wine was sometimes assembled together with Cabernet Franc, but Andrea Franchetti, who always had very high standards, was not satisfied with it. For ten years he ceased producing it, but in 2009 a particularly favourable vintage for Merlot was the inspiration for the production of a monovarietal Palazzi. This wine became a wonderful blend of the characteristics of an international grape with those of an extraordinary terroir that knows how to excite.

    In the glass this wine already shows its aristocratic colours: a beautiful, intense garnet red. The nose is an endlessly fruity offering of small berries, cassis, blueberries, blackberries, and plums. After swirling it in the glass, delicate notes of sweet spices vanilla, cardamom, and mineral nuances such as graphite also emerge. The sip is juicy, tasty and full, with sweet and extremely velvety tannins, but also plenty of freshness. The finish is very long, and lingers in the thoughts of those who taste it.

  • This blend varies according to vintage and the intuition of its producer. Andrea Franchetti is just like his wines: rich, concentrated and deep.

    Tenuta di Trinoro 2017 is a vintage dominated by Cabernet Franc, and the parcels of land were selected with a view to producing wines worthy of a great Super Tuscan. In the glass, the wine is a consistent ruby-red with a very concentrated mass, with hints of garnet. When you bring it to the nose you immediately appreciate notes of dark, crisp fruit – plums, blueberries, blackberries – and opening up it reveals more complex hues of medicinal herbs. The second nose provides hints of dried flowers and aromatic herbs. In the mouth it is velvety, enveloping and soft; the sweet and elegant tannins giving it a dense and compact texture. The freshness is provided in the form of a juicy blood orange, along with ferrous notes.

    This great wine will continue to evolve for at least the next ten years.

  • An interpreter who has revisited the tradition of Vulture in a modern way, Elena Fucci is among the first to propose a wine made of only Aglianico grapes aged in amphora, with a surprising final result. It is now several years that Elena is being mentioned by the media as a leading winemaker of Basilicata and member of a DOCG that is growing exponentially thanks to the quality of the finished product, the intrinsic properties of a grape that gives its best on volcanic soils and the great work done by many small producers who strive to affirm internationally the “Barolo of South Italy”.

    Amongst all, Elena Fucci stands out for her dedication to Aglianico, interpreted in several wines also using non-traditional winemaking methods that look with attention to the latest market trends but always placing the raw material first and the deep respect to her. Aglianico is a grape with a debated but certainly ancient past, probably imported by the Greeks and already categorized by the Romans among the glorious “viti aminee” that made the Campania Felix wines famous at that time. There are several biotypes identified today without recognizing substantial differences between the Aglianico of Campania and that of the Vulture, where it was planted given the limited distances with the suitable areas of Irpinia and the similar soils.Respect for the raw material is the result of its own fascinating history and the one of the family, which characterized the life (and choices) of Elena Fucci in bringing such an important and difficult-to-grow grape to the highest expressive levels. The vineyards located at 600 meters above sea level with South / South-East exposure are planted on layers of pozzolana, lapilli and volcanic ash interspersed with volcanic clays. The vines, ranging in age from 55 to 70 years, are treated organically and harvested between the end of October and the beginning of November due to the late ripening of the Aglianico. Fermented in amphora at a controlled temperature with maceration on the skins for 12/13 days with periodic delestage and recuperation, the must always completes the malolactic fermentation in amphora before resting for up to 18 months and then concluding its ageing in bottle.The tasting is incredible: Titolo by Amphora presents itself as a noble, consistent wine, with a ruby ​​already tending to garnet color and a broad nose that ranges from black pepper to tobacco and to blackcurrant jam, with a hint of undergrowth and mineral base. Very balanced in the mouth, with an acidity that matches the tannins well, however dense but not sharp. Minerality and persistence close the sip calming down the power just released in the mouth. 2017 was a lucky year for Aglianico, with exceptional qualitative yields although characterized by a widespread reduction in quantities. Just over nine hundred bottles produced, of which only 36 in 1.5l format: an exclusive offer that could not be missed by Winefully.

Very balanced in the mouth, with a strong freshness that matches the tannins well, however dense but not sharp. Minerality and persistence close a prolonged and pleasant sip. 2017 was a lucky year for Aglianico, with exceptional qualitative yields although characterized by a widespread reduction in quantities.

  • An interpreter who has revisited the tradition of Vulture in a modern way, Elena Fucci proposes a Riserva wine made with Aglianico grapes only aged in oak per the guidelines from the DOCG denomination it belongs to.

Once the alcoholic fermentation and on-skin  maceration end, the must completes the malolactic fermentation in oak before resting for up to 36 months and then concluding its ageing in bottle.

    The tasting is a sensory experience: Titolo Riserva presents itself as a dark, austere, consistent wine, of a non-trasparent ruby ​​color with clear garnet nuances and a wide nose that ranges from blackberry jam to dried fruit to strong mineral notes attributable to ash and crushed stones. In the mouth it is balanced but powerful, fresh but with a strong tannic texture and a well managed astringency. Absolutely mineral, it end with a very long finish that fills mouth and body. 2016 was a regular vintage that brought a harvest rich in quantity and quality, which also benefited the most selected Aglianico, harvested at perfect phenolic ripeness. About four hundred DOCG bottles produced, plus only 200 in 1.5l format: another exclusive by Winefully.

  • In Lenzuolo Bianco, a hamlet of Oslavia, Collio Goriziano, wine has always been made, regardless how the border with Yugoslavia first and then with Slovenia moved over the years. Tradition is strong and men are even stronger in this strip of Italy that speaks Slovenian that from several years became the cradle of ancient-time wines, produced as at the dawn of civilization and which today are often labeled as natural or artisan wines. Joško Gravner made and still makes the history of Oslavia: his wine is his thought, and his thought is his way of living.

    Few winemakers have revolutionized the way of making wine in an entire region like Gravner and very few, perhaps none, have done so more than once. Radical choices introduced new vinification techniques and focused attention on native grapes: a beautiful example of such is the Rosso Breg, from 100% Pignolo grapes. A Friulian grape that was in danger of disappearing in the twentieth century and which was recovered to celebrate its rebirth from the eighties onwards, today made it own by Gravner in a meaning of extreme purity, from the vine to the bottle. Gravner is an interpreter of the purest biodynamic winemaking way, made not only of the respect for the nature and its own rhythms but also of a personal contribution to the surrounding environment to encourage biodiversity and generate serenity.If in the vineyard nature does it by itself and man is limited to pick the fruits when ready, as in the case of the 2006 harvest which ended in mid-October with sane and promising grapes concluding a textbook vintage from a meteorological point of view, in the cellar Joško relies on the Caucasian millenary tradition, fermenting and macerating the grapes in undergound amphorae for a few weeks, before drawing off, pressing and resting the must in amphora for five months. In the silence, darkness and tranquility of a splendid cellar carved into the rock, the wine grows in the qvevri and slowly transforms, before leaving the earth to rely on oak for five long years before a well-deserved rest in the bottle. It is a linear, simple process, which does not require clarification or filtration, only a minimal addition of solfites since the natural product of fermented grapes is not wine, but vinegar. Rosso Breg is a wine that cannot be forgotten, it immediately impacts the tasting with its history well translated into olfactory complexity and robustness. Dark garnet and not at all transparent, it is spicy, with hints of tobacco, undergrowth, ripe red fruits and raisins. In the mouth it is muscular but elegant, with a perceptible and well round-edged tannin, still fresh and well mineral. The finish is not easily forgotten and perhaps there is no desire to forget it, in full respect to the dilated times of a producer who tries to bring us back to the simplicity and pleasure of simple things, like drinking a glass of wine in company. Just 700 magnums have been produced.

  • A relatively new area but very promising from an enological point of view, a strong and well-structured business plan that can already count on the successful experience of Castiglion del Bosco, a great respect for nature, its times and its balance: we could mention others as well but these aspects already well introduce Tenuta Prima Pietra and the great work that is being done continuously for its growth and affirmation on the most demanding markets.

    The estate is based in I Prati and within the municipality of Riparbella, an area overlooking the Cecina river valey to the south and the sea with the Tuscan archipelago to the west. Home of the highest vineyard on the Tuscan coast, it’s from few years that Tenuta Prima Pietra added a limited edition Bordeaux-style wine strongly desired by Massimo Ferragamo to its classic and eponymous product line.

    Permassimo was born as a classic Bordeaux blend with a preponderance of Cabernet Sauvignon, residue of Franc and a minimum percentage of Merlot. The vines, planted up to 450 meters high with South/South-West exposure, take benefit from continuous light, are protected from the easterly winds that blow from the inside often bringing colder temperatures and instead benefit from what further south it is called “ponentino”, or sea breezes. The altitude does the rest, ensuring a good temperature range in the warm months so as to allow slower and more concentrated ripening, also thanking to the high density of vines per hectare.

    The soil on which Tenuta Prima Pietra stands is splendid: the nearby Poggio Nocola provides ferrous and mineral elements that the clayey soil makes its own and that it transmits to the grapes, giving complexity and elegance, helping the vines in periods of greater water stress. Benefiting from a benign weather-related vintage with a hot summer alternating with short August rains, the Permassimo grapes arrived at harvest in the second decade of September without imbalances or excesses, in excellent conditions to vinify and age separately before the final blend.

    The result is a refined, elegant and complex wine, with a very lively and concentrated color in the glass, a nose that releases strong hints of crunchy and pulpy red fruit, slightly ferrous mineral notes and herbaceous closure reminiscence of the Mediterranean bush. Finely chiseled tannins accompany a sip where softness balances well with acidity and minerality, supporting a robust body and an intense and persistent finish. Just 100 Magnum were produced in the 2017 vintage.

  • Rare is an adjective that applies to what is hard to find and which, consequently, has the characteristic of being in demand, sought after, coveted. The numbers help the full understanding of this concept by providing a scale that measures how limited a specimen is with respect to the total of such specimens. The rest, in such case, is done by the Ferragamo family: with the creation of the Zodiaco Collection since 2013, an annual event is created to honour the Chinese horoscope by dedicating a limited and indeed rare edition of Brunello di Montalcino to one of the animals that make up the 12-year cycle, a reference for the Chinese society playing a much greater importance than in the Western tradition. Every year a famous Chinese contemporary artist creates and signs a unique label applied on the few bottles that Castiglion del Bosco releases to the public through dedicated channels and that collectors from all over the world compete for. Brunello di Montalcino Riserva 2013, signed by Aaron Gan, is made available in 2020, the year of the Rat, in only 688 magnums. The gentle watercolor brushstrokes represent grapes as a symbol of abundance, while the mouse, with its gaze turned upwards, symbolizes hope for a better future. Son of a cool and rainy vintage for many months of the year, then counterbalanced by a hot summer that brought the Sangiovese grapes manually selected from the most suitable vineyards of the estate to perfect ripeness, Zodiaco speaks the language of the territory made of a strong presence of marl which brings a pleasant mineral boost. It is a wine with character, with a strong personality and which ennobles the most positive traits of the 2013 vintage, resulting fresh on the palate but still broad on the nose, ranging from ripe red fruit also preserved in alcohol to citrus notes, sweet spices and of course minerals. The tannins are robust and give thickness to the wine, guaranteeing a long bottle life so as to smooth out some still sharp edges or delighting tasters loving the powerful drink before ending with an elegantly persistent finish. Zodiaco 2013 is not only a great wine but a real work of art in a limited edition that Winefully is honored to be able to offer exclusively for Italy.

  • In line with the wine-making traditions of the region, Valentini – the historic producer of excellent rosé wines – does not just conform, with the Cerasuolo d’Abruzzo, to the preparation of Montepulciano d’Abruzzo with maceration on the skins, but goes much further, in the Valentini style, to become a pinnacle of the power and freshness found but often overlooked in this red grape.

    One of only three types of wine produced by this noble family and already considered to be among the 50 best wines in the world in 2016 (vintage 2014), Cerasuolo d’Abruzzo is unrivalled among the still rosé wines produced in Italy. This is thanks to the obsessive care that craftsman Francesco Paolo devotes to his wines, both in the vineyard and in the cellar, minimising invasive technology in making wine and using large barrels for both fermentation and ageing.

    Primary, secondary and tertiary: all aromas are present, the connoisseur is left with the pleasure of exploring this wine, supported by freshness, softness and minerality, and finally a persistence that is lost in the distant horizon of the Adriatic Sea.

  • As noble as the origins of the Valentini family, who have been settled in Abruzzo since the seventeenth century and have contributed a number of prominent personalities to the local community, Trebbiano is one of the most important Italian whites, and was already awarded the title of best wine in Italy in 2011 for the 2007 vintage.

    The pinnacle of the expression of one of the most widely cultivated white grapes in central Italy, the Trebbiano di Valentini has deservedly become a legendary wine, one of those to be jealously kept in the cellar and passed on to future generations for wine education purposes. Historically cultivated for hundreds of years in the Aprutino area and by generations of the Valentini family that have followed one another over the centuries, it fully conveys the artisan philosophy of Francesco Paolo, whom we find at the helm of the company today. Manual harvesting, the exclusive use of the best grapes, spontaneous fermentation, indigenous yeasts, uncontrolled temperature, the absence of clarifications or filtrations: these are just some of the typical phases of what is behind this masterpiece, characterised by complexity, generosity and breadth, with a very long, acidic and savoury finish, confirming its great ageing potential.

    It contains verticality and momentum that translate into a majestic wine that is direct, powerful but also delicate in its complexity.

  • The colourful label moves from red to yellow and belongs to both Colore Bianco and Colore Rosso, two wines very dear to Bibi Graetz. This is a limited edition wine, born of the union of 3 barriques of Sangiovese, Canaiolo and Colorino.

    In the glass this wine is of a beautiful ruby ​​red that is as intriguing as its bouquet. Elegant hints of bramble berries in the nose make way for spicy and peppery notes that contain references to roasting and leather. In the mouth it is powerful, vibrant, with lively and throbbing tannins and an elegant, acidic texture. It is persistent, harmonious and has very long olfactory persistence. This is a wine that embodies both the territory and its vines of origin. It represents, as Bibi Graetz himself says, the structure of Sangiovese, the fruity fullness of Colorino and the green pepper of Canaiolo.

    A wine that tastes of Tuscany and provides unique sensations to the nose and, above all, the mouth.

  • Bibi Graetz – the rising star of Tuscan viticulture – is an artist who has been able to express his talent through his wine. He is in love with his vineyards, which he cares for passionately and refers to as his ‘creatures’. Testamatta Rosso was declared the best red wine in the world at the Challenge International du Vin in Bordeaux with its 2001 vintage, and is an authentic expression of the pure Sangiovese from the hills of Fiesole, north of Florence.

    A bright ruby-red in colour, the bouquet is frank and sincere, like its creator. The notes of cherry, black cherry, and redcurrant immediately follow those of sweet spices, such as vanilla, liquorice, tobacco, leather, rosemary and cloves. The sip is elegant and satisfying, with silky tannins and good freshness that hints at citrus, blood oranges and cranberry juice.

    With excellent persistence, each sip calls for the next. To be enjoyed with a classic, rare Florentine steak.

  • Apparita is the first pure Merlot wine produced in Tuscany. Since its first vintage (1985) it has gained a cult following both in Italy and abroad. Since 1992, L’Académie du Vin has recognised this wine as being amongst the greatest, internationally, in this category.

    The vineyards are located at the top of the Bellavista Vineyard, where several small parcels make up the L’Apparita vineyard, which measures less than 4 hectares. The clay-rich soil gives this wine structure, elegance and its unmistakable softness.

    In the glass it moves slowly and reveals its beautiful colouring; it is dark red, dense and impenetrable, and its colour foretells its elegant, introspective and complex bouquet. It opens with notes of purple and black berry fruit, blackberries, blackcurrants, plums, cassis and blueberries and then makes way for sweet spices and vanilla with a touch of eucalyptus and juniper. In the mouth it is fresh, with soft and silky tannins and glycerine. Overall it is harmonious, enveloping and decidedly persistent.
