This month marks the “New Paradise” that is the Italian wine market. The old and rare are new, the traditional and familiar have gone rogue, vibrant with style. These unheard-of indigenous Italian varietals have been available like never before, and some of the classic styles have begun to experiment with the flare of new world wine.

February 4 - Corte alla Flora
In the early 1990s, the Cragnotti family purchased this 300-acre Tuscany property in Montepulciano and created the Corte alla Flora Estate. Although the site had no vineyards at the time, they have since planted more than 35 hectares, making them one of the region’s top ten producers. Corte alla Flora has not only bastioned success for their award-winning Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Riserva, but also diversified by bringing rare, indigenous varietals to the international market. Sergio Cragnotti is best known for his time as president of the Lazio football club and head of the food conglomerate Cirio. His son Massimo runs the wine estate and Andrea Cragnotti is the export manager.
