Brunello di Montalcino Cielo D’Ulisse Podere Le Ripi 2015
Cielo d’Ulisse is an amazing Brunello, and can certainly be considered among the great Tuscan wines that are produced based on the principles of biodynamic agriculture. The wine displays a spectacular, intensely red garnet color. The aromas are characteristic of the Sangiovese Grosso grape, with hints of blackberries, raspberries and plums, accompanied by elegant notes of undergrowth and balsamic bursts. Aging in large oak barrels brings out the typical, delicate notes of vanilla. Fresh in the mouth, with vibrant tannins. The sip is rich and fruity, the structure is powerful and determined, all divinely supported by an acidity that gives the wine a unique balance. An absolute jewel!

Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Conti Capponi Vigna La Fornace 2016
Conti Capponi is one of the most historical wineries in the Chianti region. This noble family has origins dating back to the 15th century, with a history inextricably linked to wine and this splendid territory.  The color of this wine is a magnificent ruby red with garnet reflections. The nose is a sequence of aromas that ranges from ripe plum and blackcurrant to forest wildflowers. The aging in oak does not cover the fruit notes, but instead compliments them with hints of delicate, warm spices. There are lovely hints of moist tobacco. In the mouth it is soft and balanced, fragrant and fresh. The tannins are thick but at the same time fine and graceful. A bottle that distinguishes itself for its elegance and finesse.

Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Montemercurio Messagero 2016 
Montepulciano has always been one of the most important and scenic wine areas in Tuscany, together with Montalcino and Chianti, and its enduring blends are deeply rooted in history.  In the glass, the color is an intense red ruby. Aromas consist of typical ripe berries and plum, followed by hints of vanilla and light licorice, cloves and black pepper. In the mouth the wine is round, smooth, ideal tannins, not too dry and not too sour with a long finish. Absolutely easy to drink, both clean and crisp. Il Messaggero is most certainly a champion of balance. A wine well done, very versatile in food pairing. Of course it goes well with red meat and game, but also a lovely dish of pasta with an important meat sauce ragù can stand up to this elegant wine without being overpowered.

Bolgheri Ruit Hora Caccia Al Piano 2017 
Located along the Tuscan Coast, the winery Caccia al Piano has belonged to the Berlucchi family, one of the great families in Italian winemaking, since 2003.  This wine displays an intense ruby-red color in the glass. The nose is rich and full, with hints of dark berries and aromatic herbs. Interesting hints of spice combine with woody and toasted notes. The sip is rich and mature. The tannins are not aggressive and are perfectly integrated with the wine’s acidity. The medium structure has a long persistence, well supported by the aromatic complexity.
