Il Bastardo Sangiovese Toscana 2013 Product #29248 (In Stock)
Il Bastardo Sangiovese Toscana 2013 Il Bastardo Sangiovese Toscana 2013

A fun, flavorful, and fine value Tuscan Sangiovese made by Paolo Masi from grapes grown near Rufina in Chianti. Ripe aromas and flavors of cherry and red berry start off bright and fresh and then get darker with a little air. The juicy acidity and light tannins make this easy to just sip, but give it enough substance to enjoy with pizza, burgers, or a big bowl of pasta and red sauce.  There's enough going on here to hold your interest through a few glasses and - especially at this price - tempt you to open a second bottle as the night goes on.  Fun stuff!

La Bastarda Bianco Toscana 2013 Product #29363 (In Stock)
La Bastarda Bianco Toscana 2013 La Bastarda Bianco Toscana 2013

As the whimsical label suggests, there's no reason to take this fresh and fruit-filled Trebbiano (70%) and Chardonnay blend too seriously.  Big, juicy, white peach, apricot, and lemon fruit sings out here with more zesty peach fruit and a touch of bitter almond on the finish.  A fine sipper and even better companion for trout, scampi or white fish.

Monte Degli Angeli Pinot Noir Monferrato 2014 Product #29656 (In Stock)

A long-time favorite value Pinot Noir returns to form and the shelf!  From the region just outside of Barolo, this is full of fresh red berry aromas and flavors with a touch of fresh earth and floral accents.  Fresh and easy from first sip to the food friendly finish. The Manderin Oriental in DC used to serve this at $12 per glass - we like it even better at this price!

De Angelis Falerio Doc Bianco 2013 Product #29003 (In Stock)
De Angelis Falerio Doc Bianco 2013 De Angelis Falerio Doc Bianco 2013

Best vintage yet for this fresh, fruit-filled, Italian white. The Falerio DOC sits at the southern end of Marche, on Italy's Adriatic coast just East of Umbria.  The relatively new DOC was created in 1975 to promote the region's two best white wine grapes-Passerina and Pecorino-while continuing to allow use of the ubiquitous Trebbiano. 

The aromas are like sniffing limes and peaches at the beach-plenty of green and orchard fruit aromas with a saline note of the sea in the background.  On the palate, there's loads of ripe, creamy peach and nectarine fruit with a spritz of key lime juice and seltzer followed by a chalky, salty, mineral-driven, finish.  There's a lot of creamy richness here that will please fans of unoaked Chardonnays, but the zesty acidity and mineral element make this super fresh and mouthwatering.  Brilliant with a garlicky scampi and seafood but pretty darn fun to just drink at a party or with friends over antipasti.  Staggering value.

Alois Lageder Pinot Grigio Dolomite 2012 375 Ml Product #27422 (In Stock)
Alois Lageder Pinot Grigio Dolomite 2012 375 Ml Alois Lageder Pinot Grigio Dolomite 2012 375 Ml

As always, this is a classic Pinot Grigio from the foothills of Italy's Dolomite mountains.  Rich aromas of peach and pear with an herbal accent.  In the mouth, broad, rich, and packed with orchard fruits and a dash of citrus that turns juicy on the clean, fresh, finish.  A richer style of Pinot Grigio that's as fun to sip solo as it is to pare with rich fish or cheese.

Kellerei Kaltern Caldaro "K" Bianco 2013 Product #28474 (In Stock)
Kellerei Kaltern Caldaro Kellerei Kaltern Caldaro

The gang at Alto Adige's Kelleri Kaltern winery just keep pumping out great value wines, but the new "K" series may be the best deals yet. It's a blend of wonderfully ripe Pinot Bianco, Chardonnay, and Sauvignon Blanc that explodes from the glass with aromas of citrus, apple, peach, green melon, and exotic spice.  In the mouth it's fresh and bright with flavors of crunchy green melon, white peach, papaya and more lemon/lime citrus.  Easy drinking, refreshing, wine that finishes with a nice little tangy kick and pulls you back for more.

Fondo Antico I Versi Bianco 2014 Product #29582 (In Stock)
Fondo Antico I Versi Bianco 2014 Fondo Antico I Versi Bianco 2014

Equal parts Grecanico, Inzolia and Grillo from Sicily, this delivers the richness you'd expect from warm Sicily with plenty of citrusy acidity to keep things fresh.  Delivers loads of pineapple, peach, pear and apple fruit with a big squirt of lemony acids and a touch of seashell minerality.  The texture is creamy and round, with no hard edges, but the real story here is the juicy fresh fruit and zesty finish.  A fine alternative to both Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc!

Feudi Branciforti Dei Bordonaro Nero d'Avola 2013 Feudi Branciforti Dei Bordonaro Nero d'Avola 2013

If you've enjoyed Firriato's Chiramonte Nero d'Avola over the years, then check out this new project from the hills of Sicily's Trapani region.  It's one of the most pure, delicious, Nero d'Avola wines we've run across in years - especially at this price!  Generous aromas of spiced black fruit and tar lead to juicy, focused, flavors of roasted raspberry, black plum, spice, and warm earth. The dark, rich, flavors stay wonderfully fresh as a note of tangy cherry juice  provides lift and fine, light, tannins give support.  The black fruit, spice, and tar notes linger nicely and draw you back for another sip.  Great with anything roasted or grilled or just to enjoy on its own.

Giuggiolo Toscana Rosso 2011 Giuggiolo Toscana Rosso 2011

Here is my actual tasting note from the first time I tried this:  “This is just stupid delicious.”  A few more details – this is 100% Sangiovese made in staeinless steel that opens with fresh and lovely aromas of violets, purple fruits and crushed cherries.  In the mouth it’s juicy and ripe with loads of pretty fruit and a dark, earthy, streak.  Bright and clean through the end with a delicious note of coffee and cocoa dust emerging at the end.  Drink it with a little chill with pizza and pasta or warmer with anything off the grill.  Like I said:  Stupid delicious.

You may never have heard of Ruche, but if you like aromatic grapes like Pinot Noir, and are searching for something that will sing with everything from Indian food to pizza, you've found your new best friend.  A traditional grape from Italy's Piedmont region, this is a soft, easygoing red with intriguing aromas of cherry, plum, lavendar, and floral notes.  Delicious and unique.

Colsanto Ruris Umbria 2011 Product #28669 (In Stock)
Colsanto Ruris Umbria 2011 Colsanto Ruris Umbria 2011

Here's our single best-selling Italian wine of the past five years - a fantastic value that tastes like it costs twice as much as it does. The wine is mainly (70%) Sangiovese and delivers plenty of that variety's juicy black cherry fruit. But, the 20% Merlot in the blend rounds out the mid-palate and keeps the wine soft while the secret ingredient -- 10% Sagrantino -- adds spice and complexity uncommon in Umbrian wines. Sure, it goes well with pizza and robust pasta sauces, but there's enough going on to handle game and hard, salty, cheeses and a soft enough finish just to drink at a party. Fantastic value.

Volpetti Cesanese 2013 Product #28784 (In Stock)
Volpetti Cesanese 2013 Volpetti Cesanese 2013

Even bigger, bolder, more fruit filled, and even more delicious than before (while still pretty garishly packaged).  From vineyards around Rome, the Volpetti packs a punch of lush dark damson plum and black cherry fruit with accents of earth and spice.  A short stay in old oak barrels softens the tannins and adds a hint of sweet balsamic.  Drink this a touch cool with pizza margherita, a bowl of pasta in red sauce, or even a big, juicy, burger and you'll be very, very, happy!

Kellerei Kaltern Caldaro Schiava 2013 Product #28785 (In Stock)
Kellerei Kaltern Caldaro Schiava  2013 Kellerei Kaltern Caldaro Schiava  2013

Schiava (also called Vernatsch or Trollinger) was actually the region’s most planted grape for many years – with 60% of total vineyard area – until Pinot Grigio and Chardonnay began to supplant it.  That’s too bad, because the light, crisp, and juicy red wines this local grape makes are fun to drink and pair well with a wide range of foods.

Reflecting the cultural and linguistic diversity of Alto Adige, the Schiava grape is called “Kalterersee” in the local dialect of the region around Lake Caldaro.  Grapes for this beauty grew on loamy, limestone gravel soils at 230-450 meters above the Lake and were fermented and aged entirely in tank. A delicious farmhouse red, loaded with red berry fruit, a hint of smoke, and a bright gentle finish.  Kind of like a ripe Chinon (but without the herbal notes), this is delicious with a light chill and shines with everyday foods and cured meats.  Great value, too.

Franco Serra Barbera d'Alba 2013 Product #29356 (In Stock)
Franco Serra Barbera d'Alba 2013 Franco Serra Barbera d'Alba 2013

From a small Barbaresco producer, this fresh and fruity Barbera delivers a lot more complexity and satisfaction than it's humble price suggests.  Fresh and juicy Bing/black cherry fruit roll across your tongue with accents of fresh leather and aged Balsamic.  Long on the palate and mouthwatering finish where very light tannin gives a little extra support.  A pretty sophisticated wine for the price - great with pizza, pasta, or even on its own.

Another fine vintage for this deep South Italian red that is always robust, but never cooked or heavy. 100% Negromaro done all in tank for freshness.

"Firm and savory, this opens with aromas of ripe berry, clove and graphite. On the palate, notes of clove and black pepper add depth to ripe Morello cherry and crushed raspberry flavors. Supple tannins offer support."Wine Enthusiast 89 points

Santa Barbara Verdicchio 2014 Santa Barbara Verdicchio 2014

Definitely the best vintage yet for this always popular DOC Verdicchio in the traditional curvy bottle. Really bursts with dried lemon, pink grapefruit, Granny Smith apple fruit made even better by a nice dose of stony minerality and a dash of fresh herb. It glides across your palate like silk then finishes brisk and clean and fresh.  Great wine for seafood and salads or just to sip. Under-priced for the quality.

Cantele Primitivo 2012 Product #29641 (In Stock)

A fresh, juicy, easy-drinking take on Zinfandel's Italian cousin. A tasty value!

"The 2012 Primitivo offers a steady and simple interpretation of one of Puglia's most important red grapes. The wine flows over the palate with smooth intensity, imparting plenty of fresh fruit, licorice and roasted nut along the way. Drying mineral notes give the wine a better sense of focus and balance. All said and done, this is an easy-going red wine to pair with meatloaf or pork chops. It ages in neutral oak for up to eight months."Wine Advocate 87 points

What a roll these guys are on!  Several vintages of 90-point scores from Wine Enthusiast and bragging rights as the best-selling under-$20 Pinot Grigio in the store.  The 2013 is a little crisper than the 2012, but just as delicious as ever.

Once again, it's a Pinot Grigio for folks who like actual flavor in their crisp, refreshing, whites.  As in the past, lovely aromas and flavors of ripe pear, crisp apple, peach, and tangerine here with an extra layer of complexity from notes of melon, blanched almond, and a lovely floral element.  A tad richer and fuller than in the past, but just as mouthwatering and salty-mineral on the juicy, fresh, finish.  Just lovely, great value, stuff.

Begali Valpolicella Ripasso Classico La Cigia 2011 Product #29637 (In Stock)
Begali Valpolicella Ripasso Classico La Cigia 2011 Begali Valpolicella Ripasso Classico La Cigia 2011

A stunning Ripasso, very much in line with the wines of the most famous producers in the region at a fraction of the cost.  It’s explosively aromatic, with layer upon layer of dried fruit, sweaty saddle, clove, herb, and more lifted by Ripasso’s characteristic hint of volatility.  Drinking very nicely now, although you can certainly enjoy this over the next few years.

"If you can name but two producers in Valpolicella (I’m betting they are Dal Forno and Quintarelli), it’s now time to add a third: Lorenzo Begali. Lorenzo and his children Giordano and Tiliana make the most exciting wines in the region today. These are inaugural reviews (Begali has never been reviewed by The Wine Advocate). Having now tasted this beautiful collection of new releases, I am a true Begal-iever.

The 2011 Valpolicella Ripasso Classico Superiore La Cengia is exceptionally beautiful and balanced. There’s a lot going on: background tones of balsam herb, rosemary and black olive follow straightforward aromas of dried fruit and prune. A pretty touch of eucalyptus springs forth. The wine is incredibly light, buoyant and lively despite the elaborate Ripasso process. Drink 2014-2018."Wine Advocate 90 points
