Amarone della Valpolicella DOC
De Buris is a timeless wine and a new classic. It is the culmination of the talent, passion, patience, and discipline of the Tommasi family in making Amarone, and an homage to the
Valpolicella region and its great winemaking potential.
Le Fornaci hails from Lugana, a trendy, growing appellation on the southern shores of Lake Garda. Tommasi has long owned an estate in the village of San Martino della Battaglia, where they produce elegant white wines made from the indigenous and largely unknown Turbiana grape.
Aglianico del Vulture DOC
Don Anselmo is a landmark wine made from 100% Aglianico grapes, the native varietal in Basilicata for which the region is renowned. It is dedicated to the winery’s founder, Anselmo Paternoster, and represents the history, roots, and continued importance of the Paternoster family in the area of production of the wines, Vulture.
Brunello di Montalcino DOCG
This elegant, traditional style Brunello is produced in the southern hills of Montalcino, between the towns of Sant’Angelo in Colle and Castelnuovo dell’Abate.
Tommasi has proudly presided over Italy’s Veneto region for over 120 years, with wines that are both renowned for their superior quality and consistently regarded as reference points for their respective appellations. As one of the single most influential producers in Italy, the winery is committed to sustainable practices and continues to craft each wine from 100% estate-owned vineyards.
The Casisano estate is located in the southeastern part of Montalcino between the St. Antimo Abbey and the Val d'Orcia, arguably the most quintessentially picturesque area in all of Tuscany. Casisano wines are the result of 100 years of passion and a deep understanding of Montalcino, its terroir, and the spectacular wines produced there.
Volcanic wines are currently a hot topic among wine critics and enthusiasts worldwide, and Paternoster is very much of the moment: it is a volcanic wine in the literal sense of the term and stands on an extinct volcano. Paternoster is located in the relatively unknown southern Italian region of Basilicata, on the slopes surrounding Mount Vulture, and has long been considered one of the region’s most important wineries.
Poggio al Tufo is located in Tuscany's coastal Maremma region near Pitigliano, an historical Etruscan city known for its volcanic soils rich in tufo, a specific type of volcanic rock. Poggio al Tufo encompasses 3 estates in different areas of the Maremma, each with its own unique microclimate, but all sharing the influence of volcanic soil and Mediterranean breezes.
Masseria Surani is located in Manduria, one of the most renowned areas in Puglia for the cultivation of the native Primitivo grape. Manduria was first colonized in 700 BC by the ancient Greeks, and Masseria Surani pays homage to the winemaking heritage of the area by producing high quality wines that respect the terroir and tradition of the land on which they are cultivated.
