Super Single Bottle Flash Sale!
July 17, 2018
A Note from Sergio

What does it mean when we talk about someone for having a well-rounded wine cellar? Does it mean owning one bottle of everything? Does it mean owning wines from a wide variety of countries, regions and vintages? Or does it mean something else?

To me, the well-rounded wine cellar is one that includes producers whose winemaking traditions and philosophies are different--sometimes strikingly so. They may be wines made by resolute traditionalists like Bruno Giacosa or Etienne Sauzet, by globe-trotting super-modernists like Roberto Voerzio, Alvaro Palacios, or Angelo Gaja. A well-rounded cellar would also include wines from bigger cult producers like Tua Rita, Hubert Lignier, and Castello dei Rampolla, as well as lesser-known names like Miani, Chavy-Chouet, and Château Maltroye. It would, in other words, embrace the known and the new, the grand and the modest, the marquee and the boutique.

And, of course, a well-rounded cellar would have wines for lunch, brunch and dinner; wines for any night of the week as well as wines for special occasions; and wines for when you're dining with an old friend and wines for when you're doing something radically new. Today, I'm delighted to give you the chance to find wines for all these scenarios with one offer: IWM's Super Single Flash Sale. There are 180 wines, and they're all different. Mix a case or two, cellar them, and feel the satisfaction of knowing that you're set for whatever life--or your palate--throws at you!

Enjoy!

Fischer Zweigelt Rose 2011 750ml
Fischer Zweigelt Rose 2011 750ml
Price: $23.45

Austrian rosé has appealing purity, transparency and aromatics that stem from its Alpine terroir, and this ’11 rosé from Zweigelt embodies this ideal. This dry Danube Rosé shows its altitude in its structure, and its stainless-steel vinification in its clear, pure palate. Salmon pink in the glass, this mono-varietal Zweigelt, an indigenous varietal that is Austria’s most popular grape, is fresh and juicy, laden with strawberries and herbs, touched with minerality and a zippy acidity. more info
Graci Etna Rosato 2017 750ml
Graci Etna Rosato 2017 750ml
Price: $23.99

More intense than your average rosé, Graci’s ’17 Etna Rosato puts its succulent blackberries and crisp red fruits front and center, framed by bracing saline minerals, fresh-cut herbs, blood orange and a touch of spice. This is a full-bodied rosato that balances its dry extract with its penetrating acidity and elegant minerality as it builds to a thrumming, savory finish. This wine is an ideal accompaniment to eggplant caponata, sharp cheeses, lamb pasta or spicy meatballs--it’s delicious! A mono-varietal Nerello Mascalese grown organically in a five-acre stony, sandy vineyard located on the slopes of a volcano, the grapes for this wine enjoy a soft press before fermenting in cement tanks; the wine ages for 18 months in cement tanks, followed by two months in bottle before release. more info

[PRIMA] Terra (Walter De Batte) Cerico 2007 750ml
[PRIMA] Terra (Walter De Batte) Cerico 2007 750ml
Price: $79.99

Whatever you expect from a Liguria Rosso, we can assure you that Walter de Batte’s Cerico, a blend of Grenache that’s kissed with Syrah, will defy it—deliciously. This is no light-hearted seaside quaffer; this is a serious wine whose sauvage flavor profile of juicy cherries, ripe berries, underbrush and meat will bring to mind a fine Hermitage. Not only does the estate craft only about 130 cases a year of this wine, but also very little of this game-changing Rosso makes it out of Italy. They are wines for true connoisseurs of Italian winemaking expertise. more info
La Castellada Chardonnay Collio 2000
La Castellada Chardonnay Collio 2000 1.5L
Price: $129.77

Friuli's answer to a White Burgundy, a firmly-textured Chardonnay revealing a hint of minerality and a forward-leaning helping of ripe fruit on the palate. more info
Bruno Giacosa Barolo Croera di La Morra 2004 750ml
Bruno Giacosa Barolo Croera di La Morra 2004 750ml
Price: $225.00

It is the new single-vineyard Barolo from the legendary traditionalist, Bruno Giacosa, paired with Piemonte’s benchmark vintage of 2004.  With eight years of maturity, the wine is just beginning to show its elegant brilliance.  IWM is now presenting the wine with more than 25% in savings and is arguably the highlight of Barolo day at IWM. This effort combines the team of Bruno and his star enologist Dante Scaglione; when they are together, it is fair to say Nebbiolo’s finest expression is captured.  Made from the Croera plot, in the high altitudes of the La Morra commune, this Barolo is an example of the more feminine expression of Barolo, emphasizing more rose, cherry and underbrush notes than the darker more firm hints found in other bottlings.  Just 600 cases were produced.  After working the Piemonte vineyards for more than 60 years, it’s not everyday you see a new wine from Bruno Giacosa - it this one is getting ready to drink and is perfect for the Holidays. more info
Castello dei Rampolla Vigna d'Alceo  2001 750ml
Castello dei Rampolla Vigna d'Alceo 2001 750ml
Price: $249.00

Upon its release, the ’01 Vigna d’Alceo was called one of the greatest vintages, lauded for its beauty, focus, breadth and aromatic; almost two decades later, this wine is proving the mettle of that praise. It’s rare to find a wine that can match its sheer power with unmistakable finesse, but the ’01 Vigna d’Alceo, for all its muscularity, glides with a boxer’s grace, melding its sweet red and blue fruits with tarry earth, warm spices, potpourri, grilled herbs, black tea and licorice. Surprisingly ethereal for a Super Tuscan, this wine seems to float in the mouth, yet it’s also remarkably dense and complex, unfolding myriad layers as it coasts to a lingering, structured finish. A Bordeaux-style blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon with 15% Petit Verdot, this biodynamic Super Tuscan ferments with only natural yeasts and ages for a year in barrique followed by 18 to 24 months in bottle before release. more info

Bruno Giacosa Barolo Le Rocche Falletto Riserva 2008 750ml
Bruno Giacosa Barolo Le Rocche Falletto Riserva 2008 750ml
Price: $479.99

Intense yet ethereal, delicately aromatic yet massively structured, and rich yet finessed, the ’08 Barolo Le Rocche del Falletto Riserva wafts with pure Nebbiolo fruit layered with rose and violet petals, licorice, forest floor, citrus zest, pipe tobacco and warm baking spices. A stunning wine with a soaring structure, this Barolo Riserva boasts chewy tannins that cling to the cheeks, a lingering, persistent finish, and a weightless, ethereal mouth-feel, characteristics that put it among the very best Barolos. Deriving from just four rows of the oldest vines situated at the vineyard's apex, Barolo Le Rocche del Falletto Riserva's elegant profile is like no other. Giacosa makes this Riserva from older vines and ages it for an additional time, to intensify, refine and elevate the drinking experience. The child of a classic, cool vintage, this ’08 Barolo Riserva is a wine that needs some patience in the cellar, but it’ll be gorgeous with time. more info
