The "1911" bears historical significance as it refers to the tumultuous riots that broke out in Champagne between the local grape growers and the producers of the time. At the turn of the twentieth century, many Champagne houses took advantage of the growing popularity of sparkling wine and began sourcing grapes from outside the eponymous region. more info

Bewitching “Big Red,” De Conciliis 2010 Naima
March 5, 2020
Savor Your Life’s Sweetness with La Roncaia’s Cult Picolit!
Naima is one of the great cult bottlings of Aglianico, the grape known as "the Nebbiolo of the South," and today, IWM is delighted to present special, time-sensitive pricing on the velvety, mineral-laden, and altogether bewitching 2010 Naima. more info
Friuli's Picolit is something of a cult object. Poorly pollinating and prone to flower abortion (a condition where buds fall off after pollination), Picolit holds the unusual position of being both poised on the brink of extinction and remarkably popular. more info

Bonomi’s Elegant $37 Cru Franciacorta!
March 3, 2020
Back By Client Demand: Acclaimed Livio Sassetti Pertimali 2015 Brunello
Part of the Casa Paladin family of estates, Castello Bonomi's scant 60 acres snuggle into a natural amphitheater situated in the foothills at the base of Mount Orfano, located in the south of Franciacorta. more info
2015 is a banner year for Brunello, a vintage that sets itself apart as not merely a benchmark year but a year that redefines what this wine is capable of achieving. If you're like us and love Brunello, Sangiovese Grosso's most refined expression, you need to experience the 2015 vintage--and there's no better starting place than Livio Sassetti's dazzling, layered '15 Brunello. more info
March 2, 2020
Benchmark 2016 Tignanello, Big and Small
February 28, 2020
Collectable California Cabernet Sauvignon from Boutique Bond!
The Antinori family had been making wine in Toscana for about 600 years before they created Tignanello, their first Super Tuscan, in 1971, hot on the heels of Sassicaia, Tenuta San Guido's groundbreaking wine that ignited the Super-Tuscan revolution. more info
Each of these wines shows a different profile, and each one is gorgeous, and because these Bond releases are already collector darlings, I'm upping the ante and offering these wines only in trios, packed in original wood casing. Napa Valley wine-lovers will want to dust off space in their cellars for these Bond wines; they're outrageous, and they'll drink for decades. more info
February 27, 2020
Giacomo Conterno’s Blockbuster 2017 Barbera Vigna Francia
February 26, 2020
Ornellaia's Works of Art, 2009 and 2010 Vendemmia d'Artista
While connoisseurs and collectors know Giacomo Conterno as a producer of legendary Barolo, the estate's winemaking prowess doesn't begin and end with its age-worthy and profound Nebbiolo wines. Just as most Barolisti do, Giacomo Conterno also crafts Barbera, but unlike most Barbera bottlings, those from Giacomo Conterno show astonishing longevity, mind-bending complexity, and terrific structure. more info
Beginning with the 2006 vintage, the first year of Ornellaia's Vendemmia dell'Artista project, the estate has commemorated the year's flagship bottling by commissioning artwork to adorn large-format bottles, and long after the delicious wine is a fading memory, these bottles are a lasting testament to the wine's singular beauty. more info
February 25, 2020
Delectable, Lush $39 Cabernet Franc from Boutique La Roncaia
February 24, 2020
Le Macchiole’s Magnificent 2016 Messorio Debuts!
Situated in the swirling hills of Nimis, in eastern Friuli, La Roncaia explores Fantinel's dedication to the cultivation and vinification of the indigenous varietals of Friuli, as well as a few well-chosen international grapes. more info
Le Macchiole defines itself by focusing on terroir in its mono-varietal bottlings. While the estate's Syrah Scrio and its Cabernet Franc Paleo Rosso are beloved by enthusiasts and lauded by critics, Messorio, the estate's mono-varietal Merlot, stands as a towering testament to its Bolgheri soils and the skill of its makers. more info
February 21, 2020
Back By Client Demand: Cerbaiona’s Sleek 2009 Brunello
February 20, 2020
Antinori's Must-Have Benchmark 2016 Pinot Nero
When former Alitalia pilot Diego Molinari founded his Cerbaiona estate in the 1970s, he chose neighbor Franco Biondi-Santi as his role model, using vine clippings from Biondi-Santi's vineyards and adopting the master's traditional methods to craft concentrated, mineral-laden wines. more info
Whether it's the Italian term for Burgundy's famed Pinot Noir or a close relative, Pinot Nero is Italy's version of the beloved red-skinned grape. One of our favorite Pinot Nero expressions comes from the Antinori family's Castello della Sala, an ancient Umbrian estate that's under the guidance of renowned enologist Renzo Cotarella, an Umbrian native. more info
February 19, 2020
Debuting Canalicchio di Sopra’s New Cru Brunello Release!
February 18, 2020
Lush, Explosive Poggio di Sotto 2011 Brunello!
It's not often that one of IWM's favorite producers releases a brand-new wine, but today, we're very excited to announce the inaugural 2015 release of Canalicchio di Sopra's cru Brunello La Casaccia! more info
IWM's clients have long loved Poggio di Sotto's thoughtful, evocative Brunello wines. Perfumed and pure, these wines capture a Burgundian side to Brunello, showcase the finesse of Sangiovese Grosso, and convey the grape's underlying power. more info
February 14, 2020
Luscious, Lively Latour-Giraud 2017 Meursault Cuvée Charles Maxime
February 13, 2020
Valentine’s Day Champagne Flash Sale!
Owned and operated by the same family for multiple generations, Domaine Latour-Giraud is an old Burgundy estate, yet even as its Burgundies garner accolades from both critics and connoisseurs, this domaine has flown very much under the radar--that is, until recently. Latour-Giraud's sudden renown is owing to Jean-Pierre Latour. more info
Songs and poems have been written about it, wars have been fought in its name, and its image is so iconic as to immediately connote style, luxury and pleasure. Champagne is the most imitated, most unique, most recognized and most archetypal wine on the planet. No other wine inspires the kind of reaction that Champagne does, and no other wine embodies celebration like Champagne. more info

Meet Your New Go-To Red, Begali’s $23 Valpolicella Classico
February 11, 2020
Six Superb Hard-to-Find Aldo Contero Barolo Wines, 1974 to 2009!
The iconic wines of the Veneto--Valpolicella and Amarone--might be the perfect complement to cold weather. But while Amarone is a definite luxury item, many Valpolicellas are terrific everyday wines. Today, we're delighted to present the BEST PRICE in the country on Begali's delicious, immediately enjoyable 2017 Valpolicella Classico! more info
Known as the "King of Barolo," Aldo Conterno, who passed away in 2012, forever changed Piemonte's wine game at his world-famous estate, Poderi Aldo Conterno. Like his brother Giovanni Conterno, Aldo grew up as winemaking royalty, raised with the certain knowledge that he would do one thing with his life: make life-changing wine beloved the world around. more info
February 10, 2020
Celebrating the Fine Wines of Fantinel and La Roncaia
February 7, 2020
“Flawless” Fontodi 2015 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Vigna del Sorbo
Fantinel has always had a singular mission: to bring the very best of Friulian wines to the public. In 1969 Mario Fantinel was a restaurateur and hotelier who aimed to offer consistently high quality wines to his guests. Rather than choose to assemble a wine list of other people's wines, he bought his own vineyard, and the Fantinel estate was born. more info
Giovanni Manetti's team at Fontodi crafts bottlings that feel thoughtful and passionate--they're naturally beautiful wines that reflect their lands, their traditions, and their maker's exceptional skill. Resting near Panzano in the epicenter of Toscana's viticulture, Fontodi's vines flourish in the Conca d'Oro, the natural amphitheater that is the beating heart of Chianti Classico, and this ideal location of Fontodi's vineyards makes for perfection in winemaking. more info
February 6, 2020
Landmark 2015 Barolo Duo from Iconic Giacomo Conterno
February 5, 2020
Antinori’s Luminous 2016 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Returns!
Giacomo Conterno has stood as a global winemaking force for generations. Giovanni Conterno founded Cantina Conterno in 1908 with the belief that Barolo was imbued with prime aging potential and unparalleled complexity. His son, Giacomo, not only inherited this philosophy, but furthered it. more info
Today, we're delighted to present a new allocation of the benchmark Badia a Passignano 2016 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione, from the Antinori family. Badia a Passignano's stone walls rise out of a thicket of cypress trees, like a fairytale fortress in the heart of Chianti Classico. more info
February 4, 2020
Ready-to-Drink, Silky 2017 Le Difese, Sassicaia’s Baby Brother
February 3, 2020
Debuting Poggio Scalette’s Riveting, Muscular 2016 Il Carbonaione
You can't overestimate the importance of Bolgheri's Tenuta San Guido. In 1968, the estate changed the face of Italian wine--and arguably the landscape of international wine--with the inaugural vintage of its Super-Tuscan giant Sassicaia. more info
The story of the Greve Valley's Poggio Scalette is something of a modern winemaking fairytale. First planted just after WWI, Poggio Scalette languished in dereliction for years until 1991, when renowned enologist Vittorio Fiore bought the land and returned the winery to its former glory. more info
January 31, 2020
Grattamacco’s Fascinating 2016 Flagship Debuts!
January 30, 2020
Landmark Vintage, Iconic Producer, Biondi-Santi’s 2016 Rosso di Montalcino
IWM loves Grattamacco's under-the-radar Super Tuscan flagship; it's a wine that consistently over-delivers, transmitting its unique terroir with sophistication and intelligence. Owned by ColleMassari for about a decade, Grattamacco sits at the end of a long, winding drive. Boasting a unique microclimate, Grattamacco's vineyards sit on an alluvial windy plain, and the estate gets 300 sunny days a year and a steady breeze. more info
The birthplace of Brunello, Biondi-Santi's Il Greppo estate is a hallowed site in Italian winemaking. While Brunello began at Il Greppo in the nineteenth century with Clemente Santi, it came into full being through the dedication of Tancredi Biondi-Santi, who recognized the BBS11 Sangiovese clone for what it was. more info
January 29, 2020
Mastroberardino’s Flagship “Big Red,” the Superb 2012 Taurasi Radici Riserva
January 28, 2020
Two Outstanding Barolo Releases from Antinori's Prunotto!
When Antonio Mastroberardino, the patriarch of the Mastroberardino estate, passed away at the age of 86 in 2014, he left behind a legacy, but the winery, now in the hands of his sons Piero and Carlo, and its wines are only a portion of it. It's rare to have entire families of grapes owe their existence to just a few people, but Aglianico, Fiano, and Greco owe their lives to the Mastroberardino family estate. more info
It's a beautiful thing when two great winemaking legacies come together to produce something wonderful, and that's the case with the Antinori family and the Prunotto estate in Piemonte. With six-hundred years of winemaking behind them, the Antinori family has a long, storied history in Toscana. more info
January 27, 2020
Debuting Montevertine’s Superb 2016 Rosso

Aldo Conterno’s Superb 2015 Barolo Duo!
Sergio Manetti redefined the Super-Tuscan revolution when he shifted the focus to his love, Sangiovese. Displeased with the way that other producers added "vitigni migliorativi," or international grapes, to Sangiovese in an attempt to produce wines with broader appeal, Manetti became a Sangiovese purist. more info
With the nickname of the "King of Barolo," Aldo Conterno was a traditionalist who wasn't afraid of innovation. Aldo has passed away, but his meticulous winemaking skills carry on at Poderi Aldo Conterno, and the estate's team, led by Aldo's sons, Franco, Stefano and Giacomo, maintains the unmistakable, approachable, and age-worthy identity of an Aldo Conterno Barolo. more info

Must-Have Tormaresca 2015 Bocca di Lupo, Arriving Soon!
January 22, 2020
Banner Year 2016 Tignanello Chianti Classico Riserva Returns
Aglianico, an ancient red wine grape, is indigenous to the south of Italy, and it's a match made in wine-lover's heaven. This region's climate, volcanic soils, and high elevation work in concert to produce a late-ripening grape that bursts with black fruit, spice, and minerals. more info
Antinori has estates all over Toscana, but the family began in the area now known as Chianti Classico, the heart of the Chianti making regions. However, in 1975, Piero Antinori decided that his Tignanello estate would leave the Consorzio Vino Chianti Classico, the wine's governing body, because he felt unhappy with the consortium's standards and lack of clarity. more info

Valdicava 2015 Brunello Splits, a Great Thing in a Small Package!
January 20, 2020
Superb 2015 Duo from Cult Winemaker Castello dei Rampolla
One of IWM's favorite Brunello estates, Valdicava consistently impresses. Valdicava's cult-inspiring Brunello wines set a perennially high bar with their evocative, terroir-driven, lush profiles. Indeed, terroir is the name of the game at Valdicava. This 67-acre estate gets its name from the Valdicava Valley, and it sits on a high plane close to Montalcino in the coldest part of Toscana's Brunello zone. more info
Tucked into a valley near the Conca d'Oro in the heart of Toscana, Castello dei Rampolla sits in an ideal spot for winemaking, so it's not surprising that this biodynamic estate makes ideal wines. Its Super Tuscans Sammarco and Vigna d'Alceo have wowed IWM clients for more than a decade, and its textured Chianti Classico offers a master class in this traditional Italian wine. more info

The Lighter Side of Quintarelli, Seductive 2018 Bianco Secco
January 16, 2020
Debuting Canalicchio di Sopra’s Silky, Stylish 2015 Brunello!
The late, great Giuseppe Quintarelli rightly earned the respect, fervor and gratitude of wine-lovers for his rich, mind-blowing Amarone, Alzero and Valpolicella wines. While there's no questioning the extraordinary high quality of Quintarelli's red wines, they're tough to enjoy on a regular basis--they're expensive, powerful, and intense bottlings that demand your full attention. more info
Founded in 1962 by former sharecropper Primo Pacenti and now run by his grandson Francesco, Canalicchio di Sopra adheres to an authentic model of Brunello to make a wine of longevity, thoughtfulness, and terroir. Canalicchio's 37 acres lie at some of the highest altitude in Montalcino. more info
January 15, 2020
Must-Have 2016 Charmes-Chambertin from Cult Gallois
January 14, 2020
Valdicava’s Riveting, Ripe 2018 Rosso di Montalcino!
The Gallois family has been crafting inspiring reds from its ten-acre Burgundy estate since 1901, so it's not surprising that Gallois makes wines that our Burghead clients love. While Domaine Dominique Gallois' motto is "Respect and Modesty," the fervor that the estate's wines inspire in Burgundy-lovers is anything but small. more info
Brunello takes years to make, an issue both for the wine's producers and its fans. Recognizing this, Montalcino winemakers realized they needed a "bridge" wine, a bottle that would serve as an affordable, approachable, early release to sell while their Brunello bottles aged, and Brunello enthusiasts wanted an approachable, immediate bottle to enjoy. more info
January 13, 2020
Magnums of Quintarelli's Outstanding "Baby Amarone"
January 10, 2020
Querciabella’s Radiant 2010 Camartina Returns!
You can't overestimate Giuseppe Quintarelli's impact on Valpolicella, the red wine zone located in the northeast corridor of the Veneto--almost singlehandedly, Quintarelli forever changed the game. Before Quintarelli, Valpolicella was a light and quaffable wine, but a trip to Burgundy in the 1980s convinced Quintarelli that Valpolicella could be a wine of serious interest. more info
Querciabella got its start as a hobby. The late Giuseppe Castiglioni initially planted vines as a pleasurable pastime, but he ended up authoring a Super-Tuscan success story. In 1972, Castiglioni restored an ancient winery, outfitted it with state-of-the-art equipment and slowly and methodically built an elite estate. more info
January 9, 2020
Meet Your New $20 House Red, Trecciano’s Terra Rosso Chianti Riserva!
January 8, 2020
Debuting La Spinetta’s Radiant, Superb 2016 Barbaresco Trio!
Chianti Classico gets all the attention, but its parent region, Chianti, is also home to well-made, riveting wines. One of our new favorite Chiantis comes from Montagnola Senese, a subregion located about ten miles west of Siena that's host to unique soils--a red, chalky clay that's high in iron and much prized by vine-growers. more info
Even before the 2016 Barbarasco wines began to hit the shelves, the vintage was gaining a reputation for being one of the best in recent memory and showing hints of potential legendary status. Now that we've been able to taste some 2016 Barbaresco for ourselves, we have to agree--the vintage is outrageous. more info

Under $50 Nebbiolo from Boutique Hilberg-Pasquero!
January 6, 2020
Return of De Conciliis Gems, and Fiorano Flash Sale!
Annette Hilberg and Michelangelo Pasquero teamed up in marriage and in the vineyard to found Hilberg Pasquero, the current iteration of their Piemonte winery, whose roots stretch back for generations. more info
Founded in 1996 by three siblings, the De Conciliis estate sits in the heart of the Cilento zone of Campania, where it capitalizes on southern exposure and ancient soils in this ripe climate to produce full-bodied, fruit-driven wines that are approachable, collectible, or affordable--or all three. A lifelong music lover, Bruno De Conciliis plays jazz in the cellars to keep his wines happy, a choice that's in keeping with the estate's holistic philosophy. more info
January 3, 2020
Drink-Me-Now Talenti Brunello! Under $52 With Special Pricing!
January 2, 2020
Happy New Year! It's IWM's Fiorano Flash Sale!
Brunello collectors are on familiar terms with the name Talenti--estate founder Pierluigi Talenti was one of the original creators of the Brunello di Montalcino DOCG. As a Brunello maker, Pierluigi defied market trends, crafting wines that hew pretty closely to traditional Brunello, while still allowing for earlier approachability. more info
A visionary winemaker, the late, great Ludovisi used avant-garde methods such as organic agriculture, a reliance on naturally occurring yeasts and ambient cellar temperatures, and extended aging on the lees--all in the 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s, when additives, roto-fermenters, and other modern protocol were in fashion. more info

Six Stupendous De Conciliis Wines to Drink in 2020!
December 27, 2019
Chavy-Chouet’s “Insider” White Burgundies! And the Antinori Family's Drink-Me-Now Rosso di Montalcino!
Founded in 1996 by three siblings, the De Conciliis estate sits in the heart of the Cilento zone of Campania, where it capitalizes on southern exposure and ancient soils in this ripe climate to produce full-bodied, fruit-driven wines that are approachable, collectible, or affordable--or all three. more info
Comprising 70 parcels that span 15 appellations, Chavy-Chouet dedicates itself to crafting dynamic, detailed wines, and it's especially true in 2018. A rainy spring slid into a hot and dry summer (rainfall was down 55% in 2018, the hottest year since 2003), but overall, the growing conditions were good, and Burgundy's vine-growers saw a big harvest of ripe, healthy grapes. more info

IWM's Sparkling Flash Sale! Special Pricing on Champagne, Prosecco and More!
December 20, 2019
Josko Gravner’s Triumphant, Terrific 2010 Duo Returns!
Mark Twain said, "Too much of anything is bad, but too much Champagne is just right"; we couldn't have said it better ourselves. Sparkling wines make the holidays glisten! No other wine inspires the kind of reaction that sparkling wines do, and no other wine embodies festive merrymaking like sparkling wines. more info
Humans have been enjoying wine for millennia, long before there was stainless steel, electricity to control temperature, wine critics to give scores, or even a science of winemaking. Anthropologists and historians believe that the ancient method of using anfora, giant clay pots that were lined with beeswax and buried in the ground, date back at least 4,000 years. more info

Must-Have, Under $70 Il Poggione 2013 Brunello
December 18, 2019
Gianfranco Soldera’s 2014 Toscana Debuts, and His 2013 Toscana Returns!
A beautiful Brunello gets under your skin in a way that few other wines can, and today we're delighted to present a new allocation of Il Poggione's luminous, thrilling 2013 Brunello di Montalcino. Founded at the close of the nineteenth century by the Franceschi family, Montalcino's Il Poggione began its modern era in 1958. more info
Case Basse, which Soldera founded in 1972, stands as an edenic, organic wonderland bursting with more than 1,500 kinds of roses; many kinds of trees including olive, juniper, holly oak and dogwood; running streams; and a wooded berm to keep the winds from buffeting the vineyards. more info
December 17, 2019
Rare Bartolo Mascarello Flash Sale!
December 16, 2019
Big, Beautiful Bottles of Roger Coulon Champagne!
Bartolo Mascarello holds the proud distinction of being one of the most traditional Barolo houses (the other is Giuseppe Rinaldi, Bartolo's cousin). Maria Teresa Mascarello, Bartolo's daughter, owns and operates Bartolo Mascarello as Bartolo had done before her, and his father, Giulio, had done before him. The estate's approach is simple: low yields and ripe fruit from some of Barolo's best vines, blended for consistent quality and style. more info
Founded in 1806, Roger Coulon is one of IWM's favorite artisanal Champagne producers. This family-owned-and-operated Champagne house owns about 25 acres of vines spread across Vrigny, Coulommes and Pargny in the northwest corner of Reims, and it has earned a strong reputation for crafting pure, traditional Champagnes that offer both high quality and affordability. more info
December 13, 2019
Four Beautiful Barbera Wines to Drink This Holiday Season!
December 12, 2019
$22 Valpolicella Duo from Artisanal Begali! And Ponsot Flash Sale!
Barbera, known as the "people's wine," is possibly the ultimate food-friendly Italian red. With its electric acidity, high alcohol, low tannins, and lush fruit, Barbera is an ideal food wine that will complement any tomato-based pasta dish, most white meats, many vegetable stews, and even your basic grilled cheese sandwich. more info
The Veneto's Begali is the story of a small family pursuing their passion--and creating a cult sensation. Begali was born at the end of WWII when Giordano Begali began pursuing his passion for grapes, though the estate didn't start marketing its wines until 1986. Begali remains in the family, currently helmed by Giordano's son Lorenzo and his wife, Adriana, and their children, Giordano and Tiliana. more info
December 11, 2019
Superb Under $70 Barolo Duo from Artisanal Cucco
December 10, 2019
François Gay’s 2017 Triumphant Trio Returns!
Today, IWM is proud to present a pair of Tenuta Cucco Barolo wines that fit this improbable paradigm: Cucco's lithe and lovely 2015 Barolo del Commune de Serralunga d'Alba and the winery's powerful and brooding 2012 Barolo Cerrati. These two Barolos come from a small family-owned-and-operated estate, and approachable now with decanting, they are exactly what your palate is calling for on these chilly winter nights. more info
A favorite of Burgheads in the know, Gay's reputation is made not on critics' scores or extensive press; it's made on the estate's superbly crafted classic Burgundies. Gay's 17-acre Côte de Beaune estate produces fewer than 3,400 cases a year, and the domaine sells the majority of its wine to friends, family and restaurants, so only about 200 cases of Gay's terroir-driven Burgundies make it outside of France. more info
December 9, 2019
Three Affordable, Approachable Sandrone Recent Releases
December 6, 2019
Debuting New Castello dei Rampolla Sammarco, Vigna d’Alceo, and Chianti Classico!
Luciano Sandrone always wanted to be a winemaker. After working as cellar-man in the historic Marchesi di Barolo estate, Sandrone was one of the original garagiste producers, making wine in his parents' garage. Decades later, Sandrone boasts holdings in some of the most legendary plots in Barolo, and his highly sought-after Barolos sit among the elite wines of Piemonte, if not the world. more info
Castello dei Rampolla seems to hide from visitors. A tangle of confusing signs sits at the top of a one-lane dirt road, and each sign points to a different estate, yet none of them say "Castello dei Rampolla." At the bottom of this narrow dirt road, though, sits a cluster of stone buildings on a small stone piazza canopied by tall trees and surrounded by spectacular Tuscan vines that ring around the bottom of the bowl that is Chianti Classico's Conca d'Oro. more info

Collemattoni has only been making wine since 1982, but the estate's polished, complex wines would make you think that it has been producing for a lot longer. Today, we're delighted to present the BEST PRICE in the country on a wine we're loving right now: Collemattoni 2011 Brunello di Montalcino. It's bold, it's beautiful, and we can't keep it to ourselves. more info

Affordable, Approachable Barbera and Barbaresco from Artisanal San Giuliano!
November 25, 2019
Silky, “Special” 2017 Guidalberto and Le Difese, Sassicaia’s Affordable Siblings!
The family-owned-and-operated San Giuliano estate has been flying under the radar for years, and IWM considers it a true insider Piemonte estate. Owner-enologist Giulio Pastura and his wife, Mariella Stupino, tend to keep their wines close to their Piemonte home, selling much of them to local restaurants. more info
While Tenuta San Guido changed the face of Italian wine with the creation of its Super-Tuscan giant Sassicaia in 1968, the estate didn't rest on its game-changing flagship wine. It created two more wines along Sassicaia's aristocratic lines: Guidalberto, the estate's "second" wine, and Le Difese, the exceptional entry-level wine. more info
November 22, 2019
Introducing A.R. Lenoble with Two Affordable, Gorgeous Grower Champagnes!
November 21, 2019
Rocche dei Manzoni Retrospective! 18 Superb Wines from Eight Terrific Vintages!
A.R. Lenoble is a unique Champagne house--indeed, it's one of the great "insider" producers in Champagne, a region dominated by large, sprawling, corporate estates. Founded almost 100 years ago by Armand-Raphaël Graser, A.R. Lenoble remains independent and family owned, helmed by sister-and-brother team Anne and Antoine Malassagne, who are great-grandchildren of the winery's founder. more info
Renowned for its modernist bent, Rocche dei Manzoni has shockingly long roots in the Manzoni Soprani area of Monforte d'Alba--the estate began in the eighteenth century, which makes it one of the region's oldest. However venerable, Rocche dei Manzoni's modern era began in 1974 when Valentino Migliorini and his wife, Jolanda, purchased the estate. more info
November 20, 2019
Introducing Luigi Giordano’s Excellent, Affordable Barbaresco!
November 19, 2019
Big, Beautiful Bottles of Querciabella Camartina and Charles Heidsieck Brut Reserve!
Four generations of Giordano winemakers ago, Giovanni Giordano founded his small vine-growing estate near the center of the Barbaresco township. While its beginnings came in the 1930s, the Luigi Giordano winery saw the start of its modern era in the 1960s when its namesake (and Giovanni's son) made the bold choice to estate-bottle his own wines. more info
Querciabella began as the beloved project of the late Giuseppe Castiglioni, who initially planted vines as a hobby and ended up authoring a Super-Tuscan success story. In 1972, Castiglioni restored an ancient winery, outfitted it with state-of-the-art equipment and, over time, established an elite estate. more info
November 18, 2019
Debuting Josko Gravner’s Superb 2010 Releases
November 15, 2019
Introducing Schiena Vini’s Artisanal Puglian Gems!
Rainy weather is challenging to most vine-growers and winemakers. Rain can saturate the vines and the grapes with water, diluting the dry extract that gives wine its flavor. Rainy weather means clouds, and clouds mean less sun, which means that grapes can have a hard time ripening from their skins through to their pips. Mold and mildew proliferate in rainy weather, and this is not always a condition that winemakers want. more info
Located in the sun-drenched countryside of Francavilla Fontana, or the "Land of the Imperials," the Schiena Vini estate is something of a wonderland, and we're delighted to introduce this Puglia estate to IWM's clients. In 1993, Giuseppe Schiena purchased almost 75 acres in Trulli, Puglia, with the purpose of founding his own estate. more info
November 14, 2019
Stellar Burgundies from Nicolas Potel and Dugat-Py!
November 13, 2019
Debuting a 2017 Trio of Classic, Delectable Wines from François Gay!
Just as Pinot Noir and Chardonnay are deceptively simple, so too is Burgundy--but it's also remarkably confusing. The history of Maison Nicolas Potel doesn't make Burgundy any easier. Nicolas Potel, son of the late, great Gérard Potel, who was director of the famed Pousse d'Or, founded his négoçiant house Maison Nicolas Potel in 1996. more info
A favorite of Burgheads in the know, Gay's reputation is made not on critic's scores or extensive press; it's made on the estate's superbly crafted classic Burgundies. Gay's 17-acre Côte de Beaune estate produces fewer than 3,400 cases a year, and the domaine sells the majority of its wine to friends, family and restaurants, so only about 200 cases of Gay's terroir-driven Burgundies make it outside of France. more info
November 12, 2019
Meet Your New Go-To Red, Trecciano's 2015 Terra Rosso Chianti Riserva
November 11, 2019
Happy Singles Day! It’s Our Super Singles Flash Sale!
The vineyards of Tenuta Trecciano spread across fifty acres of this coveted ground; here, the Trecciano estate grows Sangiovese, as well as Bordeaux grape varietals, taking advantage of the mineral-laden soils in its terroir-driven Chianti and Super-Tuscan bottlings. more info
We've searched our temperature-controlled cellars to find our favorite single bottles, and for the next 48 hours, these delicious solo bottles are available with very special pricing when you purchase a half-case or more. You'll find sumptuous Amarone, superb Super Tuscans, beautiful Brunello, and elegant Barolo, as well as Burgundy, Rioja, Bordeaux, Champagne--and more. more info

Affordable, Biodynamic Piemonte Gems from Hilberg Pasquero!
November 7, 2019
Valdicava’s 2015 Brunello Returns in Big Bottles! And We Debut the 2018 Rosso!
Annette Hilberg and Michelangelo Pasquero teamed up in marriage and in the vineyard to found Hilberg Pasquero, the current iteration of their Piemonte winery, whose roots stretch back for generations. Michelangelo, or Mikio to people who know him, was looking for education in biodynamic growing methods, and his path led him first to Sweden and then to Germany, where he met Annette, a former nurse. more info
The wines of the Valdicava Valley balance their body and their perfume, offering great structure combined with intoxicating aromatics--and for these reasons, IWM can't keep Valdicava in stock for long. more info
November 6, 2019
Debuting the Splendid 2018 Vintage of Chavy-Chouet’s “Insider” Burgundies!
November 5, 2019
Debuting Livio Sassetti Pertimali’s Superb 2015 Brunello--Under $70!
After selling his grapes for decades, seventh-generation winemaker Hubert Chavy-Chouet decided he could do better, and in the 1990s, he started to bottle his own exceptionally pure, unadulterated wines from his 37-acre estate. Hubert, who passed away in 2014, turned over the running of the estate to his son Romaric in 2006. more info
The Sassetti family has been farming for many generations, and winemaking has long been their livelihood--and their passion. While Livio Sassetti inherited this passion, he wanted to make his own mark in the wine world, so in the early 1970's he followed his ambition to Montalcino, where he purchased land in Montosoli and founded the Pertimali estate, named for a cottage on the property. more info
November 4, 2019
Scott Conant's New Trio of Wines Debut! Three Inaugural Bottles, Only $17 to $45!
November 1, 2019
Gaja Barbaresco 2016
Already a celebrity chef, acclaimed cookbook author, Chopped judge, and James Beard-award winner, Chef Scott Conant has added something new to his resume: he's a winemaker. Conant comes to making wine with a familial eye, noting that his grandfather would "make wine and bring his own bottle to family gatherings." SC Wines' first release sees a trio of iconic Italian bottlings. more info
Angelo Gaja was a trendsetter. He began with the 1961 vintage with the choices to bottle only estate-grown wines, to reduce crop size, and to decrease fermentation periods. 1967 saw Gaja's bottling of single-vineyard Barbarescos with his debut of Sorì San Lorenzo; and the 1975 vintage saw Gaja's first use of barriques. more info
October 31, 2019
Radiant Under $70 2013 Brunello from Il Poggione
October 30, 2019
Return of Antinori's Epic 2015 Tignanello
Founded at the close of the nineteenth century by the Franceschi family, Montalcino's Il Poggione began its modern era in 1958 when enologist Pierluigi Talenti accepted the post of winemaker, and once Talenti began making Il Poggione's wines, it didn't take long for them to seize the attention of the wine world. more info
Influenced by his uncle, Marchese Mario Incisa della Rocchetta, and guided by consulting enologist Giacomo Tachis, Piero Antinori didn't want to recreate a Bordeaux-style Super-Tuscan wine; he wanted to show Sangiovese's versatility and finesse. Antinori achieved his goals in Tignanello, a blend of Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, and, with this wine, he changed the Super-Tuscan game. more info
October 29, 2019
Valentini’s Superb 2015 Trebbiano d’Abruzzo Debuts!
October 28, 2019
Debuting Vega Sicilia’s Outstanding 2014 Valbuena 5º
Valentini makes only three wines--Montepulciano d'Abruzzo, Trebbiano d'Abruzzo, and Cerasuolo Rosato d'Abruzzo--and all are standard bearers of artisanal quality not just for Abruzzo or for Italian wines, but for the world. Part of the Valentini cult status stems from the fact that the estate makes only 40,000 bottles a year. more info
Like Único, Vega Sicilia's Valbuena 5º reflects Vega Sicilia's painstaking winemaking precision and attention to detail, and, like the estate's flagship, Valbuena 5º puts its Tinto Fino in the context of a small percentage of an international grape, creating a visionary wine that commands attention and compels adoration. more info
October 25, 2019
Twenty Gorgeous Gaja Wines, All 20% Off! Barbaresco, Barolo, Darmagi and More!
October 24, 2019
Three Approachable, Affordable 2016 Aldo Conterno Reds
Today, we're delighted to present an offer that matches the scope of Angelo Gaja's larger-than-life achievements: twenty Gaja wines, ranging from vintage 1966 beauties to recent 2016 releases, all at 20% off for a limited time! Whether you pick a single bottle or select wines for a mixed case, this offer has something for every Gaja fan. more info
A visionary winemaker best known for his Barolo bottlings, the late, great Aldo Conterno was committed to crafting wines that would express his unique perspective on his lands' terroir and the Langhe's traditions. Although Aldo passed away, the estate that bears his name continues in his footsteps. Aldo's sons learned at their father's side, and they are dedicated to making wines that their father would love. more info
October 23, 2019
Monfortino Barolo Riserva Retrospective, 1937 to 2013 with Special Pricing!
October 22, 2019
Guiseppe Quintarelli’s “Baby Amarone” Debuts! The New 2010 Rosso del Bepi!
Giovanni Conterno founded Cantina Conterno around 1908 (exact history is a little hard to determine), and while not labeled Barolo Monfortino at the time of its first bottling, the legendary Barolo Monfortino Riserva was born in 1912. more info
Although he passed away in 2012, Giuseppe Quintarelli still stands as the Veneto's most significant producer, renowned for his legendary, cellar-worthy Amarone, Recioto, and Alzero--but Quintarelli also quietly released wines that gathered less fanfare, like his Rosso del Bepi. Imagine being able to buy a Picasso for a couple hundred dollars because Pablo called it a "doodle" rather than a "line drawing." more info
October 21, 2019
Debuting Valdicava’s Showstopping 2015 Brunello!
October 18, 2019
Debuting Mastroberardino’s Superb ’12 Taurasi Radici Riserva--Under $65!
"When I speak of Valdicava, I speak about enjoyment," said Vincenzo Abbruzzese during a visit to Italian Wine Merchants. "I produce wine for the place, the land." Clearly, he's doing something right. Valdicava Brunello di Montalcino stands as one of the great IWM client favorites--we can't keep them in stock. more info
Very few wine regions can credit their global renown to one producer, but in the case of Campania, the credit goes to the Mastroberardino estate. After the one-two hits of the phylloxera outbreak in the late nineteenth century and the destruction of WW II, Campania's vineyards were decimated, and many grape varietals sat on the precipice of extinction. more info
October 17, 2019
Giacomo Conterno 2015 Trio Debuts! Barolo Arione, Barolo Cerretta, and Barolo Francia!
October 16, 2019
Magical, Marvelous Quintarelli Amarone, 1971 to 2011
Today's offer presents three very different sides of the 2015 Barolo vintage with Giacomo Conterno's multifaceted, nuanced '15 Barolo Francia, the estate's plush yet electric '15 Barolo Cerretta, and its powerful, earthy '15 Barolo Arione, the latest addition to the estate's lineup. more info
Giuseppe Quintarelli, who passed away in 2012, was one of the world's greatest winemakers. He was a man whose concept of vintage approval and strict grape selection rivals the great chateaux of Sauternes, and he patiently let his wines rest in large Slovenian oak casks until they finished their maturation, only releasing his wines when he decided that it was time. more info

Giacosa's Superb 2014 Barbaresco Asili Riserva--in Double Mags!
October 10, 2019
Italy’s Spin on Champagne from Castello Bonomi! And Giacomo Conterno Barolo!
For more than six decades, Bruno Giacosa worked to set the standards for traditional Barolo and Barbaresco with his age-worthy, nuanced wines. A deeply iconoclastic producer, Bruno adhered to his own rules, choosing when--or whether--he would release his wines according to his own standards. more info
Today, we're delighted to present a beautiful blush Franciacorta from Castello Bonomi, one of the region's rising stars. Part of the Casa Paladin family of estates, Castello Bonomi's scant 60 acres snuggle into a natural amphitheater situated in the foothills at the base of Mount Orfano, located in the south of Franciacorta. more info

Five of Maculan’s Delicious, Affordable Under-the-Radar Gems
October 8, 2019
Tremendous Value, La Rasina’s 2014 Rosso di Montalcino Speciale “Ines”
Founded in 1947, Maculan is one of Breganze's foremost winemakers, and the estate's wines revel in the mixture of cultures that create the fascinating mélange that defines this winemaking region. Aided by their father, Fausto Maculan, Angela and Maria Vittoria helm the Maculan estate, and together they work in their cantina to craft wines of great purity, terroir, and tradition from their limestone-rich, volcanic soil vineyards. more info
founded in the mid-1970s by grandfather Santi Mantengoli, the family-run La Rasina estate entered its modern era when son Vasco assumed control in 1988. Vasco's son Marco has helmed the organically tended 111-acre (27 acres under vine) estate since 1997, overseeing La Rasina's production that includes Brunello, cru Brunello Riserva, Rosso di Montalcino, a Super-Tuscan wine, grappa and olive oil. more info

2015 Sandrone Barolo Debut Duo, Plus Three More Sandrone Debuts!
October 4, 2019
A Specially Priced Case of Fiorano’s Rare White Diamonds!
Luciano Sandrone began his winemaking career as a cellar-man working in the historic Marchesi di Barolo estate, saving his money until he could afford to buy his first parcel of land in Cannubi Boschis in 1977. Because he cleaned out his savings to buy this land, Sandrone made his wines at home in his parents' garage, quietly working and revising his techniques until he caught the wine world's notice with his 1989 and 1990 vintages--and the estate has seen an upward trajectory ever since. more info
Hidden within the city walls of Rome, Fiorano was the fabled wine estate of Alberico Boncompagni Ludovisi, the Prince of Venosa. In his visionary winemaking, Ludovisi used avant-garde methods that included organic agriculture, a hands-off approach, and extended aging on the lees--and he did this in the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s, when additives, roto-fermenters, and other modern protocol were all the rage. more info

Marvelous, Muscular $75 Amarone! And Legendary 1961 Giacomo Conterno Barolo!
October 2, 2019
La Ca'Növa's Captivating Cru Barbera! And Benchmark Pelissero Barbaresco!
It's officially Amarone season, and Brigaldara makes one of our favorite Amarone wines. Located on the slopes of the Marano Valley in the Valpolicella region of the Veneto, Brigaldara's 125 acres are owned by the Cesari family, who began making wine in the 1970's using their fifteenth-century villa's farmhouse as their cantina, fermenting the wines on the structure's top floor and aging them on the bottom. more info
Perched on a hill near the town of Barbaresco, ensconced between the legendary plots of Montevico and Montestefano, sit the scant thirty acres of La Ca'Növa, an under-the-radar maker of fine, traditional Piemonte wines. The Rocca family began farming these acres as sharecroppers in the 1920s, founding their own estate in the 1970s. more info
October 1, 2019
Aldo Conterno’s 2015 Barolo Quartet--and Four More Superb 2016 Wines!
September 30, 2019
Antinori’s Succulent, Savory 2014 Brunello, and Quintarelli’s 1995 Masterpiece!
The late, great Aldo Conterno was a traditionalist who wasn't afraid of innovation, and he was an innovator who grew more traditional as he matured. Although Aldo has passed away, his iconic estate carries on, led by Aldo's sons, Franco, Stefano and Giacomo, who craft outstanding wines that earn the Poderi Aldo Conterno name. more info
It's hard to find a beautifully made, thoroughly authentic, and entirely delicious Brunello for less than $70, but we've done it--and this wine comes from Antinori, the aristocratic family that boasts more than 600 years of winemaking, the creation of Super-Tuscan greats Tignanello and Solaia, and more than twenty wineries located in six countries. more info
September 27, 2019
Under $30 Benchmark “Super Tuscan” from Antinori! And Collector Ponsot!
September 26, 2019
Produttori Del Barbaresco’s Superb 2014 Barbaresco Ovello Riserva--Under $70!
It's hard to find tasty, high quality Super-Tuscan style wines for less than $30, but today's offer has one of our favorites, Le Mortelle 2016 Botrosecco Maremma Toscana. The Antinori family's Le Mortelle estate is located on the Maremma Coast not far from the family's Guado al Tasso estate in Bolgheri, and it was once part of a larger estate called La Badiola, which was created in the nineteenth century when the Duchy drained the marshy areas around Grosseto. more info
Finding quality Barbaresco Riserva that costs less than $70 a bottle is an elusive task--until you hear of Produttori del Barbaresco. As its name implies, Produttori del Barbaresco is a collective of producers, and this collective is a true hero of Italian wine. Started at the turn of the nineteenth century, Produttori del Barbaresco began with just nine producers, but now its numbers have grown to 51 growers, who represent more than 250 acres in the Barbaresco district. more info

Scrumptious 2017 Barbera from the Antinori Family! And Your New Go-To White!
September 24, 2019
Knockout 2015 Barolo Conteisa, Gaja’s Superb Return to Traditionalism
One of Piemonte's longest-lived and most historic estates, Prunotto got its start in 1904, when Alfred Prunotto helped to establish a wine collective in Serralunga; in 1922, this collective disbanded, so Alfred founded his own winery in its place. As Alfred looked to retire, he turned his winery over to enologist Beppe Colla, who ran it with his brother, Tino, until their retirement in the 1990s. more info
Angelo Gaja was always a restless innovator. An early adopter of barrique aging of his cru wines, Angelo broke with tradition by adding a small Barbera component to his single-vineyard Barbaresco and Barolo bottlings. However, 2013 saw the Gaja estate return to a kind of traditionalism. Gaja first stunned its fans by releasing its Barbaresco trio as mono-varietal Nebbiolo wines that conformed to DOCG status. more info
September 23, 2019
Aromatic, Architectural Bruno Giacosa 2014 Barbaresco Asili Riserva
September 20, 2019
Luscious, Drink-Me-Now Il Poggione Brunello, and Collector Dugat-Py!
The late, great Bruno Giacosa stands as one of the greatest producers of traditionally styled Barolo and Barbaresco. As a child working alongside his father, Bruno learned traditional Piemonte grapes and traditional Piemonte winemaking practices, and this training in the "old ways" formed the basis of the Giacosa philosophy. more info
A beautiful Brunello gets under your skin in a way that few other wines can, and today we're delighted to present the BEST PRICE in the country on magnums of Il Poggione's silky, sexy 2012 Brunello di Montalcino. Founded at the close of the nineteenth century, Montalcino's Il Poggione began its modern era in 1958 when renowned enologist Pierluigi Talenti accepted the post of winemaker at the Franceschi family's estate. more info
September 19, 2019
Return of the Spellbinding 2015 Le Pergole Torte! And Lignier-Michelot Clos St Denis Duo!
September 18, 2019
Big, Beautiful Bottles of Paolo Bea's Flagship Big Red!
Arguably the finest expression of Sangiovese, Montevertine Le Pergole Torte is a darling among Super-Tuscan connoisseurs, Sangiovese fans, industry people, and even discriminating Burgheads. Montevertine's flagship wine's wide appeal stems from the estate's thoughtful viticulture and viniculture of the Sangiovese grape, which finds its pinnacle in Le Pergole Torte. more info
Sagrantino and Paolo Bea are a match made in wine-lover heaven. Sagrantino, Umbria's emblematic grape, has the distinction of being one of the most tannic grapes in the world, and it sports one of the highest quantities of phenolic compounds, the chemical compounds that occur in grapes that give wine its taste, color, and even its texture. more info
September 17, 2019
Aldo Conterno 1958 Barolo Monforte e Perno, a Superb Piece of Italian Winemaking History
September 16, 2019
Silky Sleeper Vintage Valdicava Brunello! And Tremendous Louis Jadot!
Known as the "King of Barolo," Aldo Conterno, who passed away in 2012, forever changed Piemonte's wine game at his world-famous estate, Poderi Aldo Conterno. Like his brother Giovanni Conterno, Aldo grew up as winemaking royalty, raised with the certain knowledge that he would do one thing with his life: make life-changing wine beloved the world around. more info
Valdicava makes wines that are intense, finessed, and fruit-laden, and that's why IWM and our clients love this estate. Whether you're talking about Valdicava's Brunello, Brunello Riserva or Rosso di Montalcino, Valdicava's wines balance their captivating acidity with their age-worthy structure, and they meld their remarkable elegance with their palpable intensity. more info
September 13, 2019
Special Pricing on Ornellaia’s “Essential” 2014 Flagship!
September 12, 2019
Debuting Nino Barraco’s 2016 Nero d’Avola, a Delicious, Organic Big Red!
A signature IWM producer, Ornellaia is a remarkable estate, capable of crafting collector wines, everyday wines, and wines that appeal to a broad range of palates. Getting its name from the grove of flowering ash trees surrounding the winery, Ornellaia came to Bolgheri in 1981, and while the estate was founded by Lodovico Antinori (nephew of Marchese Nicolò Incisa della Rochetta, Sassicaia's maker, and brother to Piero Antinori), Ornellaia has been owned by the Frescobaldi group for about two decades. more info
Sicilia's Marsala region is best known for its sweet wines, but rock-star winemaker Nino Barraco is devoted to crafting terroir-driven, intense, and dry wines that evoke their wild western Sicilian climate. Nino took the helm of his family estate in 2004, and he immediately converted the estate's 17 acres to organic agriculture, with his viniculture following shortly thereafter sit. more info

Debuting the Superb 2016 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione from the Antinori Family!
September 10, 2019
Back by Client Demand: Maltroye's Delectable '16 Chassagne-Montrachet Rouge
The ancient stone walls of Badia a Passignano rise out of a thicket of cypress trees, like a fairytale fortress in the heart of Chianti Classico. Originally built in 395 for the order of the archbishop of Florence, this former abbey has played home to Vallombrosian order, an arm of the Benedictine monks, for centuries--in fact, the abbey is still home to the Vallombrosian monks, who specialize in viniculture and forestry. more info
An IWM signature producer, Château de la Maltroye sprawls across 40 acres, and while the estate dates back only to the eighteenth century, its current owners, the Cornut family, have owned it since the mid-1950s. But Maltroye's modern era began in the late 1990s when Jean-Pierre Cornut took the estate's helm. more info

Lush, Luminous Graci 2018 Etna Bianco Debuts!
September 6, 2019
Debuting Quintarelli’s Sublime 2011 Amarone! And Bouchard Père & Fils Flash Sale!
Estate owner Alberto Graci comes from a long line of Sicilian winemakers, but he turned his back on the family history, choosing to become an investment banker in Milan. In 2004, his grandfather died, and Alberto returned to Sicilia. He sold his family's lands located in the center of the island, and he bought property in Passopisciaro, on the slopes of Etna, an ancient winemaking site, later purchasing Solicchiata, a small vineyard of century-old, pre-phylloxera Nerello Mascalese. more info
The "Master of the Veneto," Giuseppe Quintarelli was one of the world's greatest winemakers. He was a man whose concept of vintage approval and strict grape selection rivals the great chateaux of Sauternes, and he patiently let his wines rest in large Slovenian oak casks until they finished their maturation, only releasing his wines when he decided that it was time. more info

The Enigmatic, Compelling 2016 La Grande Rue Grand Cru!
September 4, 2019
Antinori's Lush, Lively, Long-Lived Aglianico, Tormaresca 2015 Bocca di Lupo
Domaine François Lamarche sets high standards by crafting Burgundy wines that express themselves through their subtlety rather than their power, and showcase their ripe, high-toned fruit in the context of their terroir. Winemaking in the Lamarche family dates back to the mid-eighteenth century; Henri Lamarche, a cooper, founded the family's estate in the village of Vosne-Romanée. more info
The ancient Aglianico grape likely gets its name from Ellenico or Hellenico, so christened by the Romans, and while ampelographers once thought that Greeks introduced the grape to the Italic peninsula, recent research suggests it may be indigenous to Italy. Aglianico has proved the most successful of Campania's red grapes, and this region's climate, volcanic soils, and high elevation work in concert to produce a late-ripening grape that bursts with black fruit, spice, and minerals. more info
September 3, 2019
Pontet-Canet’s “Flawless” 2016 Pauillac, and Jean Grivot Trio!
September 2, 2019
Happy Labor Day from IWM! Enjoy New Wine All Year Long!
Ask Bordeaux connoisseurs about their favorite Pauillac wines, and they will likely name Mouton, Latour, and Lafite. These three first-growth Bordeaux châteaux have earned their status, but today we'd like to shine a spotlight on a strong contender, Château Pontet-Canet, a Cinquièmes Cru (Fifth Growth) château that is poised to give those bigger names a run for their money. more info
It's Labor Day weekend, the traditional end of summer--and the unofficial start to IWM's favorite time of the year, fall's wine-drinking season! While we love drinking wine throughout spring and summer, we love drinking wine in fall and winter even more. There's something about the crisp air and hearty cold weather dishes that calls for a full-throttle Super Tuscan, an ethereal Barolo, an earthy Brunello, or a marvelous Aglianico (although we still love the way that electric whites keep us on our toes). more info

Giacosa’s Superb 2014 Barbaresco Asili Riserva
August 29, 2019
Juicy $25 Chianti Classico from Castelvecchi! And Antinori’s Sublime Matarocchio!
It's hard to overstate the importance of the late, great Bruno Giacosa, who continues to stand as one of the most respected producers of traditionally styled Barolo and Barbaresco. As a kid working alongside his father, Bruno was fascinated by traditional Piemonte grapes and traditional Piemonte winemaking practices, and this obsession with the "old ways" formed the basis of the Giacosa philosophy. more info
Castelvecchi's lands have been making wine in Chianti Classico's Radda hills since 1043, making it a very old, very historic estate. Now part of the Casa Paladin family (which includes Castello Bonomi and Bosco del Merlo), Castelvecchi spreads across almost 60 acres, and it makes wines from eleven vineyards, all located in the heart of Chianti Classico. more info
August 28, 2019
Two Superb Brunello Debuts from Antinori’s Pian delle Vigne!
August 27, 2019
Surprising “Cinderella” Vintage Aldo Conterno Barolo Bussia!
An IWM signature producer, Antinori can boast more than 600 years of winemaking, the creation of Super-Tuscan greats Tignanello and Solaia, and more than twenty wineries located in six countries. Pian delle Vigne, purchased by the Antinori family in 1995, illustrates how the Antinori excellence in Toscana extends beyond the borders of Chianti Classico and Bolgheri and into the center of Montalcino. more info
Winemakers who craft life-changing wines become large-than-life figures to their fans, and that's especially true for Aldo Conterno. More than merely a wine producer, Aldo was the "King of Barolo," a legacy that looms large in the Langhe's landscape. Aldo, who passed away in 2012, took care to teach his sons, Franco, Stefano and Giacomo, and his sons work to maintain the unmistakable identity of Aldo's Barolo, vintage after superb vintage. more info

Benchmark Pinot Nero from Antinori, and Majestic Louis Jadot Duo!
August 23, 2019
Delicious, Vivacious Antinori Under $30 Tuscan Duo, and Karthäuserhofberg’s Riesling Gem!
Whether you consider Pinot Nero to be the Italian clone of or Italian term for Burgundy's famed Pinot Noir, Pinot Nero is Italy's version of the beloved red-skinned grape. Today we're delighted to debut one of our favorite Pinot Nero bottlings--and, delicious as it is, it's unlikely to conform to your expectations. more info
The Antinori family may have centuries of winemaking history behind it, and it may be responsible for iconic wines like Tignanello and Solaia, but it also has holdings throughout Toscana, across Italy, and around the world! It's hard to believe that anything Antinori does can be under the radar, but its Le Mortelle estate remains a relatively undiscovered gem, at least in the United States. more info
August 22, 2019
Antinori’s Dreamy Dessert Wine, 2014 Muffato della Sala! And Poggio di Sotto!
August 21, 2019
Luminous, Luscious 2016 Tignanello Chianti Classico Riserva Debuts!
While the world-famous Antinori estate is headquartered in the heart of Toscana in Chianti Classico, the ancient winemaking family has long had roots in Umbria, the landlocked region that neighbors Toscana. The Antinori family first bought the land in the 1940s, but the family waited until 1985 to formally found its Umbrian estate, Castello della Sala, which is located in the northwest corner of Orvieto, just where Umbria abuts Toscana. more info
A family with more than 600 years of winemaking history, Antinori has estates all over Toscana, but the family began in the area now known as Chianti Classico, the heart of the Chianti making regions. However, in 1975, Piero Antinori decided that his Tignanello estate would leave the Consorzio Vino Chianti Classico, the wine's governing body, because he felt unhappy with the consortium's standards and lack of clarity. more info
August 20, 2019
Two New Lush, Lively Barolo Wines from Antinori’s Prunotto Estate!
August 19, 2019
Perfect, Pristine 1995 Super Tuscan from Michele Satta! And Louis Jadot Flash Sale!
IWM has long championed the Antinori family, and one of our favorite Antinori ventures is the family's Prunotto estate, located in Piemonte. Venerable and respected, Prunotto got its start in 1904, when Alfred Prunotto helped to establish a Serralunga wine collective; after the collective disbanded in 1922, Alfred founded his own winery in its place. more info
Michele Satta is one of Bolgheri's original mavericks. A college intern at a vineyard, Satta arrived in Bolgheri in 1974 when he was just 19. Within a decade, Satta had learned enough about growing grapes and making wine that he founded his own estate in 1982, making his inaugural vintage in 1983, a year before Bolgheri was awarded its first DOCG denomination. more info

Big, Beautiful Bottles of Benchmark Fontodi Chianti Classico! Faiveley Burgundy Sale!
August 15, 2019
Jadot’s Delectable Old-Vine 2017 Bourgogne Le Chapitre, and Antinori’s Cru Barbera!
Winemaking in Chianti Classico dates back to the eighth century, and wine called "Chianti" dates back to 1398; Tenuta Fontodi is one of the region's estates that can trace its lineage back to these historic times. A winemaker that uses organic growing methods, Fontodi is an all-time favorite of IWM clients and staff; the estate makes beautiful, evocative wines that populate the cellars of true Tuscan wine enthusiasts. more info
Louis Jadot is one of IWM's rare exceptions: a big Burgundy estate that we champion with the same enthusiasm we hold for family-owned domaines. Since its inception in 1856, Louis Jadot has crafted wines that speak volumes about their terroir. Jacques Lardière, Jadot's head winemaker for three decades, understood the primacy of Jadot's terroir and based his philosophy on putting terroir first. more info

Meet Your New Go-To Sicilian Red! And Bryant Family Sale!
August 13, 2019
Giuseppe Mascarello’s Indescribable 1958 Barolo, and Must-Have Burgundy from Daniel Rion!
Sicilia is a wine wonderland. Sicilia's hot, dry climate enables vines to grow healthy grapes without pesticides or chemical intervention, and Sicilia's stable climate means that vintage variation is lessened. Moreover, the volcanic and sandy soils stress out the vines, causing them to produce flavorful, intense grapes imbued with minerality and personality. more info
Founded in 1881, the modern era of the Giuseppe Mascarello estate in Monforte d'Alba began in 1904 when Giuseppe's son Maurizio bought land in nearby Castiglione Falletto. This purchase included a parcel of the Monprivato vineyard, which Maurizio planted to a special clone of the Nebbiolo grape, Michét, a refined clone of Piemonte's emblematic grape. more info

“Very Special” 2017 Le Difese, Sassicaia's Under $30 Sibling
August 9, 2019
Fontodi’s Luminous White Super-Tuscan, Meriggio! And Big, Beautiful Ornellaia!
In 1968, Bolgheri's Tenuta San Guido changed the face of Italian wine with the first commercial vintage of its Super-Tuscan giant, Sassicaia. However, this iconic estate didn't rest on its game-changing laurels; Tenuta San Guido went on to create two more wines along Sassicaia's aristocratic lines: Guidalberto, the estate's "second" wine, in 2000; and Le Difese, the estate's exceptional entry-level wine, in 2002. more info
Probably a descendent of the Savagnin grape, Sauvignon Blanc may be indigenous to Bordeaux, and it may be central to many of France's finest appellations, but it's also cultivated across Italy, especially in Friuli and Trentino-Alto Adige--though one of our favorites comes from Fontodi in Toscana. Winemakers around the globe choose Sauvignon Blanc for its ability to produce fresh, crisp, herbaceous wines laced with a pleasant citrus quality. more info
August 8, 2019
Vestini Campagnano's Beautiful Big Red, and Must-Have 2017 Guidalberto!
August 7, 2019
Debuting Eight Glorious Benchmark Wines from Aldo Conterno!
Vestini Campagnano, a Campanian estate located in the northern province of Caserta, is dedicated to bringing new life to ancient, forgotten grapes. For decades, people thought that the renowned Pallagrello grape had succumbed to the ravages of phylloxera in the early 20th century. That theory was scrapped in the 1980s when lawyer Peppe Mancini chanced upon some pre-phylloxera Pallagrello vines quietly being tended by a few low-profile owners. more info
Earning the nickname of the "King of Barolo," Aldo Conterno was a traditionalist who wasn't afraid of innovation. Although Aldo has passed away, his meticulous winemaking skills carry on at Poderi Aldo Conterno, and the estate's team, led by Aldo's sons, Franco, Stefano and Giacomo, continues to craft outstanding wines each vintage. more info
