- Villa Brunesca Pinot Grigio 2014 Product #29978 (In Stock)
How in the world did this estate on the plains north of Venice make such a terrific Pinot Grigio in the wash-out 2014 harvest? Beats us, but this is a winner and a screaming value. Nice, rich, aromas of juicy pear, tangerine zest and a hint of almond lead to a round mouthful of ripe pear, nectarine, and salty caramel flavors that coat your palate and make your mouth water. There's a hint of fennel frond for extra complexity and fantastic freshness to the rich, ripe, flavors. Much richer than normal for Pinot Grigio - almost Oregon weight here - with a juicy, fresh, finish. Again, a winning value!
- Tedeschi Valpolicella Ripasso Capitel San Rocco 2009 Product #29466 (In Stock)
A Ripasso that sings with food but has the freshness and vibrancy to enjoy by itself.
"Spicy aromas of floral red cherry, quinine, pink peppercorn and fresh herbs. Enters richer and deeper than the Nicalo, with ripe red cherry and red berry flavors lifted by aromatic herbs. Finishes clean and long, but this still needs a lot of time to express itself. A very good Valpolicella Ripasso that does not aim at being a cheap Amarone knock-off but has a Valpolicella dignity all its own. From a selection of grapes from different hillside vineyards than those that give the grapes for the Nicalo."International Wine Cellar 90 points
