Le Serre Nuove dell’Ornellaia Bolgheri DOC (1500ml)

It was in 1981 that the Marquis Lodovico Antinori, cousin of Piero Antinori, founded the Ornellaia Estate, in the heart of the Bolgheri area, a few kilometers from the Mediterranean coast. Thus, with the first harvest of 1985, what would become an icon among the SuperTuscans was born: the “Ornellaia”. With the inauguration of the company, the world-famous enologist, Michel Rolland, begins to deal with the technical part of the cellar. Subsequently, in the 90s the other two labels were born: “Le Volte” and “Le Serre Nuove”.

Coming primarily from the Estate’s younger vineyards and made with the same passion and attention to detail as Ornellaia, Le Serre Nuove dell’Ornellaia is a true “second vin”.
A blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, Le Serre Nuove dell’Ornellaia combines generosity and depth of flavour with an engaging and vibrant personality.

Pater Familiae Vino Icono

The Spanish conquistador Francisco de Aguirre planted a vine in Chile in the 16th century. Further continuing the work of their ancestors, Ana Maria Etcheberri and Pedro Felix de Aguirre founded the Bodegas y Vinedos de Aguirre winery, which adheres to the winemaking traditions of the family.

The Pater Familiae line was created specifically for the anniversary of the death of the great winemaker Felix de Aguirre and represents the heart and soul of the family. This range of ultra premium wines gathers the best grapes from specially selected blocks owned by Cruz de Aguirre and also converges the fruit of the work of three generations of winemakers.

Vino Icono 2015 was born as a result of the selection of the best grapes from the vineyards of Villa Alegre (Maule), and as a result of the work of three generations of winemakers, “something that our father, Pedro Félix, always dreamed of: an exceptional wine that reflects the best of ourselves; the passion for a job well done and that invites us to transcend, to imagine and to leave a trace”, says Rodrigo De Aguirre, general manager of Viña De Aguirre.

Petit Figeac Saint-Émilion Grand Cru Classé AOC (Château Figeac Saint-Émilion GCC 2nd wine)

Château Figeac is one of the leading St. Emilion estates and its wine, with its high Cabernet content, has often been described as the most Médoc-like in Saint-Émilion. It is located in the north-west of the appellation with its vineyards adjoining those of Cheval Blanc. Its 40 hectares of vineyards (unusually for the right bank there is only 30% Merlot in the vineyard with 35% Cabernet Franc and – rare on the right bank – 35% Cabernet Sauvignon) lie on a deep, Médoc-like gravel topsoil (‘Graves’) over a flinty, iron-rich subsoil.
Since 2010 Figeac has been managed by Comte Eric d’Aramon and his wife Laure and there has been some serious improvements here recently under winemaker Frédéric Faye. Michel Rolland has been brought in to consult – but not to change the unique Figeac style. As a consequence, the wines produced now seem a little riper and more polished than before but are still fine, pure and classic.

A sizeable part of production is relegated to the second label – Petit Figeac.
After two stunning vintages in 2015 and 2016 Figeac is one of the hottest properties in Bordeaux.
