Kellerei Kaltern Caldaro Schiava 2012 Product #27353 (In Stock)
Kellerei Kaltern Caldaro Schiava 2012 Kellerei Kaltern Caldaro Schiava 2012

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.

Kellerei Kaltern Caldaro Pinot Grigio 2012 Product #27296 (In Stock)
Kellerei Kaltern Caldaro Pinot Grigio 2012 Kellerei Kaltern Caldaro Pinot Grigio 2012

What a roll these guys are on!  The past two vintages of this gutsy Pinot Grigio earned 90 points from Wine Enthusiast, bragging rights as the best <$20 Grigio we know of, and our Chain Bridge Cellars Selection sticker.  The 2012?  Better than 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.

Gini Soave Classico 2011 Product #27613 (In Stock)
Gini Soave Classico 2011 Gini Soave Classico 2011

The 2010 "basic" Soave from the region's most dependable top-quality estate is gentle in the mouth with yellow fruit and a touch of nutty anise that grows on the expansive finish.  There's a floral note present this vintage, but more than enough bright, apple and lemon, acidity to keep things fresh and refreshing.  Great wine for fresh water fish!

Cleto Chiarli Lambrusco Di Sorbara Vecchia Modena 2013 Product #28266 (In Stock)
Cleto Chiarli Lambrusco Di Sorbara Vecchia Modena 2013 Cleto Chiarli Lambrusco Di Sorbara Vecchia Modena 2013

A stunning dry Lambrusco that will rock with pizza or cured meats.

"Bright red-ruby. Exotically perfumed bouquet evokes red berry preserves, violet and sweet spices. Fleshy raspberry and red cherry flavors are quite primary, picking up cinnamon and vanilla qualities with air. Shows no rough edges and finishes with good clarity and sweet, vibrant persistence. Very elegant for lambrusco and deliciously crammed with clean, sweet red berry flavors that linger long on the aftertaste. Lambrusco doesn't get much better than this."International Wine Cellar 90 points

Vercesi Gugiarolo Pinot Nero Bianco 2012 Product #27118 (In Stock)
Vercesi Gugiarolo Pinot Nero Bianco 2012 Vercesi Gugiarolo Pinot Nero Bianco 2012

Yes, this is the "geekiest" white wine in the store - a white made from 100% Pinot Noir (yup - Noir, not Blanc) in the southern part of Lombardy.  But, it's here because it's just crazy delicious and will delight anyone who love Pinot Gris or Chardonnay.  Aromas of red berries, apple and almond lead to a fully flavored, richly textured, mouthful of orchard fruits and just a hint of cherry.  Gain minerality in the middle and on the long, juicy, finish.  A terrific choice for pre-dinner sipping with nibbles or all kinds of seafood or poultry dishes.

Elena Walch Pinot Grigio Castel Ringberg 2012 Product #27395 (In Stock)
Elena Walch Pinot Grigio Castel Ringberg 2012 Elena Walch Pinot Grigio Castel Ringberg 2012

Elena Walch remains one of the very top winemakers in Alto Adige and her estate Pinot Grigio is a great example of her work. Mostly made in tank, but 15% is fermented and aged in wood for more heft and depth.  Ripe peach, crunch apple, honeysuckle, anise, and fresh almond aromas and flavors take the lead with a very slight, subtle, note of honey lingering under the zippy acids.  Lip-smacking, complex, and very delicious Pinot Grigio!

Manincor Réserve Del Conte Alto Adige 2011 Manincor Réserve Del Conte Alto Adige 2011

An unusual blend of Lagrein, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon that leaves you feeling these grapes should be blended together more often. Bursting with fresh black cherry, red plum, licorice and floral aromas and flavors and stunningly pure tannins and acidity all perfectly integrated with the fruit.  Dark, but fresh, juicy, and delicious, this pulls you back again and again.  A stunner for rich foods, cured meats, or just drinking.
