We love finding wines with a smart “next door” story, but this one might top them all…

Vallino is the pride and joy of the Nuti family, who bought their first plot of land, La Regola, back in 1900. Four generations later, they’re still going strong, winning huge acclaim and proving they can pull their weight in a category packed with very big contenders. Le Regola lies just up the hill from the vineyards of Tenuta San Guido—home of legendary Sassicaia—the wine that launched the Super Tuscan style and propelled it to worldwide stardom.

All that fame usually comes with a hefty price tag, though. Sassicaia 2017 sells for $250+ a bottle, which is one of the many reasons why Vallino is such a phenomenal buy. Add into that the warm 2017 vintage, which helped the grapes develop seriously ripe, concentrated flavors, and it’s no surprise that Vallino has won two 90-point scores and 94 points from critic James Suckling.

Crafted from organically grown Cabernet Sauvignon and Sangiovese grapes and patiently barrel aged, Vallino is drinking beautifully now and will continue to develop. Here is how Suckling described it: “A full, silky red with lots of crushed black cherries and hints of blackcurrants and minerals. Unobtrusive tannins and a long finish that gives you a second wave of black cherry.”

Incredible drinking pleasure—at a fraction of the cost of its famous neighbors. Hurry for your share of our limited cases.
