Featured Producers

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.

Tenuta Caparzo

NEW PRODUCER

Established in 1970, Caparzo is one of Montalcino's 30 historic wineries, and is amongst those that contributed to the fame of Brunello di Montalcino . Purchased by current owner Elisabetta Gnudi Angelini in 1998, after a period of dilapidation, she was determined to grow, improve  and develop this estate back to its former glory. Investment in the vineyard, modernisation in the winery and the help of winemaker Massimo Bracalente have all ensured that Caparzo is now enjoying a comeback as a top Brunello producer.

Cataldi Madonna

Luigi Cataldi Madonna is an amazing success story and the maker of some of Italy’s greatest white wines of today. He is correctly regarded by wine experts as one of the top wineries not just of Abruzzo, but Italy as well. The merits for a similar rise to stardom must go to Luigi, son of Antonio Cataldi Madonna who followed in his father’s footsteps at the estate, founded in 1920. Though Antonio launched the estate into the modern era with his arrival  in 1968 (he replanted the vineyards, renovated the buildings and the technical equipment), it is Luigi, aided by star consultant winemaker Lorenzo Landi who has really put Cataldi Madonna on the map by believing in the native grape variety Pecorino, from which he crafts what is arguably one of Italy’s top ten white wines.
