I wanted this year’s Christmas 2020 Special Wine Box to contain only unique wines from the province of Arezzo!
In a particular vintage like this one, it seems appropriate to highlight the unsung value of Arezzo wines. Arezzo wines are new to the market yet high in quality, which translates to fantastic wines that are practically unknown to the general public.
In fact, much of the local wine produced is ‘limited production’ making it nearly impossible to find these wonderful wines in the United States.
The unique quality of Arezzo wines is found in two distinct wine-growing areas. Just north of Arezzo in Valdarno and Casentino, we find an area rich in history and tradition.
South of Arezzo, in the direction of Cortona we find the DOC Cortona area, the true driving force of the Arezzo wine economy.
With 100% Pinot Nero, SOPRA is a true Burgundy lover’s wine. The producer, Giancarlo Bucci, wanted to produce only a small number of bottles – 2,126 bottles makes this SOPRA Cortona a rarity.

IVITI is 100% Syrah. Produced by Luca Viti, the wine has great character, power and elegance, all of which work well together. Luca manages to produce 4,000 bottles of absolute quality wine on just 2 hectares of vineyard!

Of the many Sangiovese wines produced in the Arezzo area, I chose this.
You can purchase the Christmas 2020 Special Wine Box for 265,00 € (includes shipping).
I hope the Christmas 2020 Special Wine Box selection is to your liking and that we will meet again soon in Italy!
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and your family.
