Poggio Alloro Vernaccia di San Gimignano 2014 Product #30146 (In Stock)
Poggio Alloro Vernaccia di San Gimignano 2014 Poggio Alloro Vernaccia di San Gimignano 2014

A classic Vernaccia, made from 100% Organic grapes harvested at optimum ripeness and allowed to become wine slowly, naturally, in neutral tank.  Generous with its apple and stone fruit, this gains plenty of complexity from accents of citrus skin, white flowers, and fresh fennel frond.  The lip-smacking fresh finish makes it a great sipper and better still with fish, poultry, and cheese.

“Editors’ Choice! Made with organically farmed grapes, this crisp, savory white opens with aromas of wildflower, stone fruit and an earthy whiff of flint. The linear, vibrant palate offers fresh peach, crunchy Granny Smith apple and a citrus note. It’s balanced by tangy acidity and closes on an almond note.”Wine Enthusiast 90 points

Poggio Alloro Chianti DOCG 2014 Product #30149 (In Stock)
Poggio Alloro Chianti DOCG 2014 Poggio Alloro Chianti DOCG 2014

Here’s proof that great farming and straight-ahead winemaking can deliver fine Chianti – and even finer value! – from outside the Classico zone.  More and more Chianti is either all Sangiovese or Sangiovese strengthened with dollops of Cabernet or Syrah.  Here, a family dedicated to natural, organic, farming turns back to Tuscan tradition to make Chianti from an old-school blend of grapes:  Sangiovese, Canaiolo, Colorino and Ciliegiolo.  Sangiovese gives the wine heft and structure, while Canaiolo adds volume, Colorino deepens the color, and Ciliegiolo – Sangiovese’s genetic parent – soft red cherry fruit.

All of this comes together to deliver a ripe, zesty, Chianti that’s very easy to drink.  Ripe black and red cherry fruit forms the wine’s core and gains interest and complexity from accents of crushed violets, red licorice, rich earth, and sweet spice accents.  There’s no oak influence at all, allowing ripe fruit to shine through while retaining outstanding freshness and just the right touch of structure at the end.  A fine party Chianti, for sure, and one that will be as much fun to drink with a big bowl of pasta as with burgers or rosemary-scented pork.

Ghiaccio Forte Morellino Di Scansano Vigne Del Passero 2014 Product #31004 (In Stock)
Ghiaccio Forte Morellino Di Scansano Vigne Del Passero 2014 Ghiaccio Forte Morellino Di Scansano Vigne Del Passero 2014

Fortunately, this wine with a mouthful of a name delivers a mouthful of delight!  Aromas of purple flowers, crushed black cherry, smoke and leather lead to big flavors of black cherry and plum with accents of spice and licorice.  Juicy up front, broad in the middle, and crisp and energetic at the end.  A terrific blend of Sangiovese (85%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (15%) that’s both seductively rich and brightly refreshing.  Not much you’re likely to put on your table that won’t play nicely with this terrific value.
