'08 and '09 Il Palzzone Brunello, Giacosa's Collectible Riserva, and One Great White!
July 8, 2014 
A Note from Sergio

When you arrive at Il Palazzone, which sits perched at the top of a Montalcino hill and at the end of a very winding, pitted dirt road, you see it's a very beautiful piece of land. The hills gently undulate down, drawing the eye with happy squares of vineyards arranged like the blocks of a chaotic quilt. Rows of vines, brown in the fall, black in the winter, a tender shade of green in the spring that turns deeply verdant in the summer, run like text across each parcel. On one side of the property is the new cellar, a proud brick building that shows its heritage and its technology; on the other sits a beautiful old Tuscan villa.


Dick Parsons bought this property about fourteen years ago. Parsons, businessman and philanthropist, is very tall, and when he shakes your hand, his big fist encompasses it in a very friendly grip. Even if he weren't the tallest guy in the room, you'd notice him because of his charisma; he smiles a lot, and he has much to smile about. Not a winemaker from birth--Parsons was born in raised in Bedford Stuyvesant in Brooklyn--Dick has made a serious venture of Il Palazzone. It's one of IWM's favorite estates, and that's because it makes some of our very favorite wines.


Today, I'm proud to spotlight a pair of Il Palazzone vintages that go together like salt and pepper, like peaches and cream, like wine and bread; they're entirely complementary. The delicate, ethereal '08 is beautiful to drink right now, while you lay down bottles of the savorous, strapping '09. They very much embody Dick's motto for the estate: "We drink what we can and sell the rest."


To complete this offer, I'm delighted to present a new vintage of Bisson Bianco Marea Cinque Terre, the 2013. This white is just wonderful, a Cinque Terre delight that brings together the beauty of the sea, the tradition of the region, and the carefree feeling of vacation. I'm very happy that it's an IWM exclusive, and I know you'll love it. Finally, there's a wine that needs no introduction, Bruno Giacosa Barolo Rocche del Falletto Riserva 2007, offered today with special time-sensitive pricing.
