Braida Giacomo was the first to make an iconic Barbera--one of structure
and longevity. Before then, Barbera was considered an everyday drinking
wine available at any local enoteca. Giacomo realized Barbera's
greatness and did something no producer had done before: he aged the
wine in small oak barrels. He also harvested a bit later in the season
than normal to better produce a riper, more powerful wine that could
age. A later harvest also meant a reduction in that the naturally high
levels of acidity in the Barbera grape, leaving a more balanced wine.
His new methods paid off and led to the creation of three of the finest,
barrique-aged Barbera crus: Bricco dell'Uccellone, Bricco della
Bigotta, and Ai Suma. Each deep colored wine is full of dark, juicy
fruits and spices, and each can cellar for two or three decades. IWM is
proud to present all three of Braida Giacomo Bologna cru Barberas, as
well as the estate's Super-Piemontese blend, Il Baciale, at 15% off for
the next 48 hours.
Why Buy This Wine:
Cultivating a single vineyard to make wine for himself and his friends,
Giacomo Bologna was the first to make an iconic Barbera--one of
structure and longevity; previously considered an everyday drinking
wine, Barbera's greatness was realized in Braida.
The first fine Barbera bottling from the estate in 1982, Bricco
dell'Uccellone derives from old-vine fruit grown in the vineyard of the
same name in Rocchetta Tanaro; this intense, concentrated Barbera offers
a tremendous bouquet, a voluptuous mouthfeel and complex layers of red
berries, exotic spices, smoke and earth.
Bricco della Bigotta debuted three years later, and it offers earlier
approachability, great freshness, and a more feminine profile of
succulent red fruit, flowers and spice.
The last Barbera cru, Ai Suma, debuted in 1990; the estate harvests
this wine's grapes for a riper, earthier, more brooding wine that
balances its full body with terrific complexity.
An exquisite balance between acidity and fruit is the hallmark of
entry-level wine Il Baciale, a Super-Piemonte blend that presents its
spice-dusted berries and cherries in a smooth medium-weight body and a
velvety, warm mouth-feel.
- IWM is proud to present all four of Braid di Giacomo Bologna's wines at 15% off for 48 hours; they are the ne plus ultra of fine, age-worthy Barbera.

Gianfranco Soldera was
easily the most talked about producer of 2012. However, even before that
act of vandalism that took away more than six years of winemaking
Soldera was IWM's most talked about producer. His perfection in the
vineyard and cellar makes him arguably Italy's greatest producer, and
his iconoclasm makes him one of the most controversial. Today, we're
delighted to offer magnum bottlings of the monumental Case Basse di
Soldera 2006 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva, a wine that will go down as
one of the best Brunellos the world has seen (even if it's not always
called a Brunello).
Why Buy This Wine:
- Case Basse di Soldera Brunello Riserva, like Giacomo Conterno Barolo
Riserva Monfortino, is among Italy's most revered wine as well as one of
IWM's fastest-selling collector wines.
- Now that Gianfranco
Soldera has lost almost his entire production for the six vintages from
2007-2012, the wines listed today are destined to become yet more rare,
prized, and collectable, especially those from the structured vintages
of longevity like the 2006.
- Along with being what is the
benchmark vintage for Brunello, the 2006 Brunello Riserva here is
controversial; later also bottled as a Rosso IGT, the recent bottling
and reflects Gianfranco Soldera's March, 2013 choice to depart from the
Consorzio del Vino Brunello and label his wine as an IGT.
bottles labeled as Brunello Riserva 2006 reflect wines labeled and
released before the infamous vandalism incident that destroyed six years
of his treasured wines, arguably the most tragic and talked about event
in Italian wine.
- Highly sought-after by collectors, Soldera
2006 Brunello Riserva is wine that stands as a testament to this
winemaker's skills: intense, concentrated and complex, the fruit is
nonetheless pure, transparent and fresh--simply put, it's a Brunello for

will go down as the year of the white truffles! In the 14-year history
of IWM we have not seen tartufo bianco, the white diamonds of the earth,
so pungent and so abundant. The Piemonte delicacy will meet Barolo and
other world-class wines at IWM's highly anticipated white truffle
luncheon. If you love Alba's most sustainable delicacy, the white
truffle, you won't want to miss this luncheon that pairs truffles with
wines from some of the great masters of Italy, France, and Spain.
Truffles flown from Piemonte will be at the centerpiece of this sit-down
luncheon as Chef Kevin Sippel crafts his tagliatelle with white
truffles and braised duck, his acclaimed veal cheeks, and, of course,
we'll be rounding out the tasting with antipasti before and dolce after.
IWM sommeliers will pour Franciacorta from Barone Pizzini, Barolos from
Sandrone and Seghesio, and other wines from the likes of La Rioja Alta,
Domaine Francois Gay, and more. It's the most wonderful time of the
year--truffle season. Celebrate it in style with IWM.
