Terre Scaligere Pinot Grigio 2013 Product #28540 (In Stock)
Terre Scaligere Pinot Grigio 2013 Terre Scaligere Pinot Grigio 2013

This Pinot Grigio from Italy's Veneto region really delivers for summer refreshment.  Aromas of Meyer lemon, ripe pears, and white flowers entice you to take a sip.  On the palate, there's enough richness to stand up to food, but it finishes snappy and clean, with those juicy pear flavors continuing on the finish.  A great value!

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 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.

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.

Santa Barbara Verdicchio 2013 Santa Barbara Verdicchio 2013

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.

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.

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.

Cantele Salice Salentino Riserva 2010 Product #28569 (In Stock)
Cantele Salice Salentino Riserva 2010 Cantele Salice Salentino Riserva 2010

If you know Negromaro from Salice Salentino, you’ll recognize the aromas and flavors here.  The dark color tells you this is a ripe, deep, wine, and the aromas of dark black plum and cherry, warm licorice root, savory spice, and purple flowers reinforce that impression.  In the mouth, the flavors are bold, warming and ripe – blackberry, black cherry, hot earth, roasted meat, spice and cocoa powder – with plenty of the meaty, earthy, complexity that Salice Salentino is known for.  But, it’s the purity, clarity, and wonderful freshness of flavor and texture that take this to another level.  Ripe, not roasted.  Powerful, not rustic.  Absolutely delicious with grilled sausages, roasted meats, or just nuts and olives, at a value price hard to resist.

“Good full ruby-red. Dark cherry and graphite aromas are lifted by an enticing spicy character. Supple, spicy and sweet, offering an uncanny combination of vibrancy, fat and density. Finishes suave and long, with fine, sweet tannins and very good lift.”International Wine Cellar 90 points

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.

Il Falchetto Langhe Chardonnay 2012 Product #27767 (In Stock)
Il Falchetto Langhe Chardonnay 2012 Il Falchetto Langhe Chardonnay 2012

A wine to enjoy at family celebrations – including Thanksgiving – from a family making wine in Italy’s Piemonte region since the mid-1600s.  Today, the latest generation of the Forno family – brothers Giorgio, Fabrizio and Adriano – craft award-winning Brachetto, Barbera, and Dolcetto from their vineyards along the border of the Langhe and Monferato.  And, thanks to Maurizio Farro, now we know they make a great Chardonnay value, too!

The Forno family’s Chardonnay comes from vineyards in Santo Stefano Belbo, about 20 minutes east of Barbaresco.  The sandy clay soils, bright Piemonte sunshine, and long growing season are perfect for getting Chardonnay ripe without losing bright, juicy, acidity. Fermentation and aging entirely in tank (no oak barrels) captures the essence of Chardonnay fruit and lets the grape’s character sing through.

The show opens with generous aromas of fresh fruit – apple, pear, pineapple, and lemon notes – with a captivating accent of fresh crushed mint.  The flavors follow the aromas with plenty of ripe apple, pear, and sweet lemon fruit plus a salty butterscotch element that takes the wine in a more rich, deeply flavored, direction than you’d expect.  The texture here is fantastic, rich enough to fill up your mouth but with no hard edges and a slippery, glycerol, character that makes this go down very, very, easily. A squirt of lemon and green apple acid at the end makes your mouth water as the fresh fruit and salty caramel flavors linger on.  The kind of wine that quenches your thirst and pairs beautifully with salty nuts or savory hors d'oeuvres.  But there’s more than enough complexity and heft here to make this a great dinner table white, too, even for a meal as big and bold as Thanksgiving!

Fiore Rosso Toscana IGT 2012 Product #28254 (In Stock)
Fiore Rosso Toscana IGT 2012 Fiore Rosso Toscana IGT 2012

Alessandro Fiore got started in the wine business promoting the wines of his father’s estates - Poggio Scalette in Chianti and Castelluccio le More in Emilia Romagna – in Europe and the USA.  So, when Alessandro decided to strike out on his own, it was natural that he turned to Vittorio Fiore for advice and winemaking help.  In 30+ years of consulting across Tuscany, Vittorio had identified a handful of small estates with exceptional quality fruit and wine, but limited marketing resources or skills.  With Vittorio finding and making the wines and Alessandro leading on marketing, Fiore Wine Collection was born.

There are several outstanding wines in this line-up, but tasting the Fiore Rosso IGT stopped us cold.  This “Super-Tuscan” is a blend of 70% Sangiovese and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, all grown near the storied towers of Tuscany’s walled city of San Gimignano.  Fermented cool and aged all in tank, the wine opens with generous aromas of black cherry, red- and blackcurrant, and a touch of sweet spice.  In the mouth, it’s flat out exciting, with luscious dark berry and cherry fruit at the core of a lushly textured, velvety, mouthful of wine.  The richness and fruit carry on through the rich, plush, finish where velvet-clad tannins and tangy cherry acids provide support, keep the flavors fresh, and pull you back for another sip.  You can certainly drink this all by itself, but you’ll love it even  more with salami, grilled red and white meats, and even pizza!  A super value Super Tuscan steal!

Fiore Chianti DOCG Fiore Nero 2012 Product #28382 (In Stock)
Fiore Chianti DOCG Fiore Nero 2012 Fiore Chianti DOCG Fiore Nero 2012

This is the second wine we've featured from Italy's Alessandro Fiore and, like the way over-achieving Super-Tuscan Rosso, it's a lot of wine for the money.  We could give you all kind of descriptive prose about the 2012 Fiore Nero Chianti DOCG - but it all boils down to: "This smells and tastes like Chianti!"  Specifically, a really nice, old-school, Chianti with great fruit and a soft, supple, finish.  Classic Chianti aromas of earthy black cherry and raspberry lead to plenty of dark berry fruit with some nice floral and licorice accents. The black fruit keeps on pumping across the fine tannins at the end as a hint of fresh leather emerges and juicy acids make your mouth water.

In short, it's a very fine Spaghetti House Chianti full of clean, modern, fruit and plenty of old-school fun. Grab a case, bake up a big dish of lasagna, and have a party!

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.

Di Lenardo Pinot Grigio Friuli 2013 Product #28571 (In Stock)
Di Lenardo Pinot Grigio Friuli 2013 Di Lenardo Pinot Grigio Friuli 2013

If you think Pinot Grigio is a neutral, flavorless, watery wine – well, you just haven’t tried the new release of this long-time customer favorite!  It’s wonderfully aromatic, with notes of crisp pear, fresh apple, white flower blossom and a touch of spice jumping from the glass.  The texture is as light, crisp, and refreshing as ever, but the flavors are bold and satisfying with notes of spicy pear, juicy green apple, tangy apricot, and just a hint of almond.  The fruit flavors keep on pumping through the long, mouthwatering, finish where the pear juice and citrus flavors linger. A great all-purpose summer white to enjoy on its own or with everything from shellfish to grilled chicken.

Di Lenardo Chardonnay Friuli 2013 Product #28628 (In Stock)
Di Lenardo Chardonnay Friuli 2013 Di Lenardo Chardonnay Friuli 2013

It’s a little surprising that the grape least associated with Friuli – Chardonnay – should deliver one of the most exciting wines in this line-up.  But, then, this isn’t “just” Chardonnay.  When Massimo Di Lendardo took over his family estate in 1987, he launched a massive replanting effort to increase vine density and focus on the very best clones for his Friuli vineyards.  For this wine, that meant the “Chardonnay Musque” clone, a mutation that retains all of Chardonnay’s body and crisp fruit but adds a layer of floral and pit fruit aromatics.

It’s been a winning choice, with Di Lenardo Chardonnay earning 89-91 points from Wine Spectator each year for the past five!  And, the review for the 90 point 2012 fits well here:  “A stony undertow and well-meshed acidity frames the flavors of yellow apple, apricot, anise, slivered almond and honeycomb in this bright and balanced version. A crowd-pleaser.” This is no-oak, 100% fun, Chardonnay that will sing with a wide range of food or delight while sipping at sunset.
