Description Sub Region Producer Notes
These precious gems are the product of dedication and passion from Principe Alberico Boncompagni Ludovisi (and his Fiorano Estate in Lazio), whose avant-garde approach of organic agriculture and the use of a magical mold was way ahead of its time. His '70s, '80s, and '90s whites were a phenomenon for their ability to age, but became rarities as the prince was ever elusive and refused to release his wines. After tearing up his vineyards to ensure that his legacy would not be misrepresented, Ludovisi passed his private cellar to the iconoclastic Italian food and wine critic Luigi Veronelli, entrusting him to find the appropriate individuals who could keep his vision and discovery alive. This mission continues today, as the vintage wines have been left to Sergio by the late Veronelli, presenting him with the challenge of fulfilling the original promise to the Prince. Like the bottlings from Gravner, these wines are not for everyone—they are enigmas for the enthusiast to play out. With this in mind, these wines will only be made available in an extremely allocated assorted case, in an effort to find serious palates. The two whites being offered, Bianco (Malvasia di Candia) and Semillon, range from the 1986 to 1994 vintages and are only beginning to show their great destiny. We implore the recipients of these wines to cellar a portion of their allotment up to 20 years so they may show their full grace, allowing the story and legacy of the prince to continue.

The 1993 Bianco of 100% Malvasia di Candia shows an unfiltered copper glow from the glass. The aromatics bend the spectrum, moving from earth to fruit, then with an interlude between sniffs, earth to spice. Tasting reveals layers of fruit, spice and earth all in harmony, with a balancing act of honeycomb, nuts, and spiced pears playing the lead.
