Caldora

NEW PRODUCER

Born from the coop, Cantina Sociale di Ortona, Caldora is a very young business based in the province of Chieti in Italy’s Abruzzo region. This is a historic cooperative with over 1500 hectares of cultivated land and around 700 farmers. Striving to reduce the yield per hectare, Caldora was created as the cooperative’s  ‘Progetto Qualità’ (Quality Project) whereby vineyards were selected from all the various terroirs belonging to the coop, which due to specific position, grapes and age of vines, gave the best quality guarantee. The rigorous quality checks of this project mean that today a total of around 200 hectares of high quality fruit contribute to making Caldora’s delicious wines.

Vignobles Silvestrini

NEW PRODUCER

Since the original purchase of their one-hectare vineyard, the Silvestrini family's winery in Bordeaux now comprises 35 hectares in total and three of the most prestigious appellations of the Libournais, and their expertise spans three generations. 

Since 2005, the most recent generation, Jérôme and Sabine, aim to combine traditional and modern techniques to achieve an inextricable balance to the finished wines. They particularly concentrate on monitoring the growing cycle of the vines, a plot-by-plot harvest and a strictly controlled fermentation process. Although Vignobles Silvestrini’s vineyards are based in the hottest, driest part of Bordeaux, the climate is temperate and oceanic and assists in the formation of  these stunning wines.

Giacomo Borgogno e Figli

NEW PRODUCER

Borgogno needs very little introduction, this historic estate sat right in the centre of the Barolo has always produced benchmark traditional Barolo. Astrum are delighted to have Borgogno as part of our portfolio.

Established in 1761 by Bartolomeo Borgogno, this estate was one of the first producers in the area. In 1920 when Cesare Borgogno took over management he made the pioneering decision to export his wines but also keep aside at least half of the production, releasing it after a minium of 20 years ageing. It is due to this that Borgogno have the most amazing collection of older vintages and are able to offer aged bottles directly from the cellar.

Today the estate is owned by the Farinetti family and managed by Andrea Farinetti. This young talented winemaker is combining the traditions of Borgogno with a modern approach,resulting in fantastic wines and an exciting future for this iconic estate .

Montalbera

NEW PRODUCER

Enrico Riccardo Morando’s family estate Montalbera in Castagnole Monferrato is famous for  its production of the relatively unknown but indigenous variety Ruché di Castagnole Monferrato; known as the "Red Prince of Monferrato".

Found in seven neighbouring villages within the Asti province in Piemonte, Ruché refers to both the DOCG, which was granted in 2010, and the variety. The origin of this grape is unknown but it is thought that it was introduced  from the Haut Savoie; its extraordinarily attractive red fruit bouquet with floral hints and elegance really attracted and won over Astrum. We are delighted to have these incredible and unique wines from Montalbera, and list our first ever Ruché.

Cantine Cellaro

NEW PRODUCER

Sambuca di Sicilia is an area which has produced fabulous grapes for centuries and Cantine Cellaro's wines are an incomparable expression for this historical area of vines. After a strategic agreement between Cantine Cellaro and Farnese Vini, the range of the wines has been revised, both in how they are produced and in how they are presented. Since the winery expanded the number and area of its vineyards and thanks to the company's partners, a process of mapping and classification of the territory has begun, isolating which areas are most perfectly suited to which varietals.
