San Guglielmo

 

Ok, this is easy: We have found another winery that farms sustainably, respects tradition, and wants the wine to express the countryside. It is very true to high quality and is a great value. Here Mike and Ilaria farm high elevation vineyards surrounded by biodiverse forest.

This part is even easier: There is a dragon and a saint on the label. The 2019 San Guglielmo Rosso di Montalcino is elegant and harmonious from a great vintage. Guglielmo was Ilaria’s grandfather and helped found the Consorzio di Brunello. He was named after the dragon-slaying saint.

There is a certain harmony and breadth to this wine. It is 100% Sangiovese made in the delineated Rosso di Montalcino style with extra texture and proper medium extraction. Even though you can age this for several years, it is very pleasant now.

2019 San Guglielmo Rosso di Montalcino:  Bright ruby. Particular vivacity and freshness and a balanced structure. Harmonious fresh cherry and flowers and light pepper in the finish. Excellent  33/bottle

 

Special case: twelve bottles of the above for a special price of $336  (28/bottle)

Special six-pack: 6 bottles of the above for a special price of $174  (29/bottle)

 

In addition, we are offering our latest fantastic olive oil. The 2021 La Ginestra Extra Virgin Olive Oil is made with three varieties of olives grown biodynamically in the Tuscan hills near Florence. La Ginestra is an entirely natural farm, producing wine, pasta, meat, honey, and olive oil. At At the moment, none of the wine is available. The stunning olive oil is.

2021 La Ginestra Extra Virgin Olive Oil: Layers of fruit and a bright spice pepper finish. We had this with Bruschetta last night. Perfect. 32/500ml bottle
