Icon Wines | Classic

Italy has produced countless wine icons since the late sixties and the number of prestigious labels continues to grow at present. A wine icon is a wine of world renown, a wine which needs no explanation, because the name is known and is considered by wine connoisseurs and critics as a 'benchmark'.

A lot of stories surround Italy's wine icons (also called 'Icon Wines') and the wines provide for all sorts of conversation (not least because of the prices). The price is calculated not only from the wine quality (which is given in this category anyway, since the winemakers process only their best grapes in the best way) - but inevitably also from the brand name that these wines have built up over the decades.

The 'Icon Wines' also stand for the pioneering work of their winemakers and for the venture to break new ground - even if the wines after years of international recognition then ultimately become timeless classics. This is not detrimental to the unforgettable pleasure that such a wine (also in connection with the name) offers, on the contrary, it contributes to the creation of legend. - Gerardo

´Graticciaia´ Salento Rosso IGT 2015, Agricole Vallone, Apulien
Graticciaia Salento Rosso IGT 2015

Agricole Vallone, Puglia

This red wine, made exclusively from Negroamaro grapes, is an Italian original of international fame: the particular production process is reminiscent of Amarone and Sforzato, with the grapes dried outdoors on the kiln, without the use of technology and following ancestral methods. Still dry, this straw wine has been one of the most interesting red wine specialties of Puglia for decades, with concentrated aromas of Amarena cherries and some cigar box. Still dry on the palate with lush berry fruit, while balanced and harmoniously structured. The name of this wine legend is Graticciaia. - Gerardo [TS06/16]

"Graticciaia is not just one of Italy's best wines, but also an historic one since it clearly brought into focus the up-until-then hidden qualities of the negroamaro grape. Uniquely creamy, with beyond-velvety tannins and loaded with aromas and flavours of strawberry jam, cherries macerated in alcohol and sage. Simply an exceptional wine." - Ian Domenico D'agata (Guida ai Miglori Vini d'Italia)

"Sparkling ruby with a slight garnet sheen. Opens with notes of dried mushrooms, some orange peel, fragrant, then shows fine notes of blackberries and dried herbs. Compact and dense on the palate, opens with dense tannin, of amazing elegance, fine red berries and fine melt characterize the wine in approach and course, long finish." - Falstaff

"The 2009 Graticciaia is one of the most distinctive wines to emerge from Puglia today. Fruit is sourced from ancient alberello or head-pruned vines and is air-dried on straw mats (called 'graticci' in Italian) for up to three weeks. Stylistically, the wine shares many of the dried fruit characteristics of Amarone from Northern Italy. This expression of Negroamaro delivers dark fruit aromas of prune, raisin, scorched earth and burnt almond shell. It ages in Allier and Never barrique for one year. The charred notes are very strong and come in stark contrast to the very noticeable jammy sweetness that this wine delivers to the palate. The finish is chewy, soft and very ripe.

Vallone is responsible for the only 'aia' wine of Puglia this is loosely inspired by the great 'aia' wines of Tuscany (Solaia, Ornellaia and Sassicaia) in terms of intensity and pedigree. But the winemaking methodology is completely different here. Vallone's Graticciaia is made with air-dried fruit similar to Amarone della Valpolicella. It represents a very special expression that will appeal to those who appreciate an extra dose of sunshine in their hot-climate red wines." - Robert Parkers Wine Advocate

Kellerei Tramin, South Tyrol

To the nose, this rich white wine reveals a kaleidoscope of scents reminiscent of rose petals, ylang ylang, ripe yellow exotic fruits, honeydew melon and mango. This spectrum is accompanied by notes of dried herbs, ginger, saffron, cloves, cinnamon and nutmeg. Of deep aromatics, full-bodied and extracted but with fine spicy juiciness and salty minerality. Continues to gain complexity as it matures. Without exaggeration the best Gewürztraminer in South Tyrol. - Gerardo

"Sparkling, bright golden yellow with light green nuances. Very intense and present nose, rich of yellow roses, lychees, some bergamot, behind it lots of cloves, very inviting. Beats a magnificent wheel on the palate, again a lot of tropical fruit, lychee and papaya dominate, lush after roses and cloves, very long finish, a classic!" - Falstaff

´I Sodi di S. Niccolò´ IGT 2017, Castellare di Castellina, Toskana
I Sodi di S. Niccolò IGT 2017

Castellare di Castellina, Tuscany

I Sodi di San Niccolo - the flagship of Castellare di Castellina - comes from the vineyard around the church of San Niccolo: this almost pure Sangioveto (Sangiovese) is complemented with Malvasia Nera, both from vines almost 30 years old. The color is an intense ruby red with garnet highlights. The aroma is fruity and reminiscent of wild berries, underlined by spices and some vanilla. This wine reached the top 100 of Wine Specator magazine several times and also received the coveted award of 3 glasses in the wine guide Gambero Rosso.

Barren soils are a basic requirement for high quality wines. Therefore, the sites where the vine has to fight for water and food are the most sought-after for Tuscan winemakers. The sites called 'i sodi' are in complete contrast to the 'campi', the fields. On the 'sodi' grow the most dense and refined wines. - Gerardo [TS06/18]

"The 2013 I Sodi di S. Niccolo is 85% Sangioveto (a more antique name for Sangiovese) and 15% Malvasia Nera from a single vineyard. The wine opens to a darkly saturated appearance and shows ruby, garnet and purple highlights. The bouquet is powerful but seamless at the same time with smooth transitions between dark cherry, spice, tobacco and moist clay. In the mouth, this wine shows dense extraction, but it never feels weighed down by that mass. Instead, the freshness of the fruit and the natural acidity give the wine a bright and buoyant personality. Aged in barrique for 30 months, this is a delightful Tuscan red." - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"Sparkling ruby with a slight garnet edge. Opens with light green spicy components, coriander seed and white pepper, then it juicy cherry, some plum. On the palate lots of fine-mesh tannin with a firm core, builds in many layers, juicy cherry and fine herbal spice, firm pressure." - Falstaff

I Sodi di S. Niccolò MAGNUM IGT 2017 (1er Holzkiste)

Castellare di Castellina, Tuscany

A magnum bottle of I Sodi di San Niccolo from Castellare di Castellina in an original wooden box with sliding lid:

I Sodi di San Niccolo - the flagship of Castellare di Castellina - comes from the vineyard around the church of San Niccolo: this almost pure Sangioveto (Sangiovese) is complemented with Malvasia Nera, both from vines almost 30 years old. The color is an intense ruby red with garnet highlights. The aroma is fruity and reminiscent of wild berries, underlined by spices and some vanilla. This wine reached the top 100 of Wine Specator magazine several times and also received the coveted award of 3 glasses in the wine guide Gambero Rosso.

Barren soils are a basic requirement for high quality wines. Therefore, the sites where the vine has to fight for water and food are the most sought-after for Tuscan winemakers. The sites called 'i sodi' are in complete contrast to the 'campi', the fields. On the 'sodi' grow the most dense and refined wines. - Gerardo [TS06/18]
