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.

Santa Barbara Verdicchio 2013 Product #28073 (In Stock)
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.

Giuggiolo Toscana Rosso 2011 Product #28153 (In Stock)
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.

Osel Ruche Monferrato 2011 Osel Ruche Monferrato 2011

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!

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

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!

Kellerei Kaltern Caldaro Pinot Grigio 2013 Product #28708 (In Stock)
Kellerei Kaltern Caldaro Pinot Grigio 2013 Kellerei Kaltern Caldaro Pinot Grigio 2013

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.

Villa Jolanda Prosecco Product #22192 (In Stock)
Villa Jolanda Prosecco Villa Jolanda Prosecco

Villa Jolanda Prosecco is made from 100% Prosecco grapes grown in the hills north of Treviso.  Grapes are hand-harvested, chilled in the vineyard, and given a low-temperature fermentation in stainless steel tanks to preserve freshness and fruit.  The wine features lovely aromas of white flowers, orchard fruits, and a touch of mineral.  Lightly sparkling with very pretty, small, bubbles, the wine is full of flavor - peach, ripe apple, lemon zest, and a nice mineral streak.  Fruity and crisp, the wine finishes with a touch of mineral and yellow apple.  A fantastic wine to keep on hand for everyday celebrations or to stock up on for Holiday parties.  Delicious!

Lodali Moscato D'asti 2014 Product #29350 (In Stock)
Lodali Moscato D'asti 2014 Lodali Moscato D'asti 2014

A delightfully aromatic wine, with loads of fresh fruit flavors bursting from the glass. It is sweet, but beautifully balanced by the wine's effervescence and acidity. Being frizzante, it has only about half the effervescence of a sparkling wine, and is hard to resist. This wine makes a wonderful accompaniment to many desserts, especially those made with fruit such as peach, pear, apple and berries.

Crivelli Grignolino D' Asti 2012 Product #27649 (In Stock)
Crivelli Grignolino D' Asti 2012 Crivelli Grignolino D' Asti 2012

This is a spectacular rendition of Piemonte's Gignolino, a wine of robust and fresh aromas and flavors and smooth as silk finish.  The translucent cherry red color is a showstopper, but the bold aromas of tangy strawberry, crunchy black cherry, citrus peel and a touch of tar are even better.  Round and mouthwateringly bright, the wine finishes juicy and long with very soft, fine, tannins.  Pure, unadulterated, fun.

Kellerei Kaltern Caldaro Lagrein 2012 Product #28228 (In Stock)
Kellerei Kaltern Caldaro Lagrein 2012 Kellerei Kaltern Caldaro Lagrein 2012

Lagrein is sort of the Dolcetto of Alto Adige, the bold but flexible everyday red that pairs perfectly with cheese, sausage and savory main courses.  This one's a beauty, ripe and dark and loaded with earthy cherry and plum fruit and bitter chocolate notes.  The texture is generous and round- making it a nice sipper - but bright acidity and fine tannins let it shine at table. Delicious and fine value!

"Sleek and rich with red fruit and black tannins, this is a peppery lagrein that shows edges of alcohol and leafiness. Those edges will add spice to most anything beefy, particularly a steak."Wine & Spirits 88 points

Manincor Kalterersee Keil Schiava 2012 Product #28398 (In Stock)
Manincor Kalterersee Keil Schiava 2012 Manincor Kalterersee Keil Schiava 2012

Schiava has historically been the workhorse grape of Alto Adige, making either a light, tart, rustic reddish wine on its own or blended with more aromatic Pinot Noir and robust Lagrein for a heartier red.  But when it's grown carefully - in this case, biodynamically - and with low yields and treated with respect in the winery, Schiava can be absolutely delicious!

The ripeness of the warm 2012 harvest shows here in the dark (for Schiava, anyway) lavender color that still remains very clear and transparent and pretty in the glass.  The aromas and flavors feature tangy black cherry, loamy earth, licorice root, and a whiff of smoke (from the grape, not oak).  It's light and transparent on the palate with a touch of cherry pit, toasted almond, and almost citrusy acidity on the mouthwatering finish. Sort of like Chinon meets Beaujolais or like Grignolino with less tannin, but definitely delicious with a light chill and with pretty much any food you can imagine - certainly pasta, but try it with fried chicken, too!

Firriato Altavilla Della Corte Grillo 2013 Product #28767 (In Stock)
Firriato Altavilla Della Corte Grillo 2013 Firriato Altavilla Della Corte Grillo 2013

Here's a terrific interpretation of Sicily's unique white wine grape, Grillo.  The relatively low acidity of Grillo plus Sicily's burning heat can give wines like heavy, thick, texture, too much alcohol, and more than touch of brown fruit oxidization.  But, when it's planted at altitude, kept to reasonable yields, and given a careful fermentation and aging, Grillo can turn into just about the perfect seafood wine.

That's what happened in this fine example from Sicily's Firriato, a relatively young winery that's moving from strength-to-strength.  Their 2013 Grillo offers up pretty aromas and flavors of lemon zest, orange blossom, and grilled pineapple. A round, medium-bodied, wine with plenty of citrusy snap on the finish and just a hint of saline minerality.  Delicious on its own and a great match for grilled or fried calamari!

Pieve Vecchia Sangiovese Chorum Montecucco 2010 Pieve Vecchia Sangiovese Chorum Montecucco 2010

This Sangiovese from the fairly new Tuscan DOC of Montecucco waaay over-delivers for it's modest price. Lush aromas of dark cherry fruit and leather carry through to the sexy palate, which bursts with tangy ripe fruit dusted with fresh herb. There's lots of richness here, but also great energy from beginning to end where a hit of bitter chocolate and herb linger nicely.  A whole lot of wine for the money.
