Puglia offers “undreamed-of character and potential” (Hugh Johnson) and “reds that give you a lot of wine for your money” (Decanter), yet even in this context Pillastro Selezione d’Oro stands out. Angelo Maci spares no expense in crafting it, and consequently among our customers he has won admirers by the thousand.
Ultima Edizione started a few years back as a special project from renowned winemaker Filippo Baccalaro, who makes all our bestselling Farnese wines. Based in an ancient castle in Abruzzo, this superb cellar has been named Italy’s ‘Winery of the Year’ three times in a row.
Amarone is the northern Italian classic red wine that commands lifelong allegiances and huge prices. Papaverone is made in the same painstaking way, using southern Italian grapes. The result is a wine every bit as rich, but much juicier and riper.
If it weren't for Angelo Maci, many of the last remaining century-old vines in Puglia would have been uprooted by now. But Angelo turns their tiny quantities of dark, spicy grapes into a very special red of remarkable depth and satisfying richness.
Silky cherry and smoky tobacco maturity in this fine Sicilian Riserva. It blends a little juicy Cabernet with Nero d’Avola from high old vineyards, lovingly restored following a devastating earthquake. Combines berry intensity and spicy length.
Experience the almost extinct Magliocco grape with this richly rewarding 98 point red. In Italy's forgotten Calabria, the Lento family breathed back the life into Magliocco. Blended here with velvety Merlot and oak aged, it's sleek, juicy and rich.
