Kellerei Kaltern Caldaro K Rosso Alto Adige 2014 Product #30464 (In Stock)
Kellerei Kaltern Caldaro K Rosso Alto Adige 2014 Kellerei Kaltern Caldaro K Rosso Alto Adige 2014

We confess to being huge fans of Kellerei Kaltern, the outstanding cooperative winery perched in the foothills of the Dolomites just outside Balzano, Italy.  The Pinot Grigio and Pinot Bianco from the hills sloping down to Lake Kaltern are mainstays here, but it's the lake-side reds that are most special to us.

Both the very popular Schiava and gutsier Lagrein bottlings rely on older vines, so the winery created this blend to feature younger vines (up to 30 years) of both.  The light-colored Schiava give this wonderful aromas and flavors of cherry, lilac, and rose petal while the more powerful Lagrein adds black raspberry, plum, and licorice notes.  Light - just 12.5% abv - but packs a big flavor punch.  Try it cool with a spread of cheese and cured meat and we think you'll be convinced!

Tiefenbrunner Pinot Grigio Alto Adige 2013 375ml Product #30811 (In Stock)
Tiefenbrunner Pinot Grigio Alto Adige 2013 375ml Tiefenbrunner Pinot Grigio Alto Adige 2013 375ml

A whole lot of Pinot Grigio (in a nice half-bottle package) for the  money here from one of Alto Adige's most respected estates. Lightly aromatic and fully flavored with pure apple and peach fruit in the middle and a touch of powdered spice on the finish.  The texture is unusually creamy and sophisticated and bright peach and lime notes come out with air and linger nicely.

Scarpetta Frico Bianco Igt delle Venezie 2014 Product #31079 (In Stock)
Scarpetta Frico Bianco Igt delle Venezie 2014 Scarpetta Frico Bianco Igt delle Venezie 2014

When a couple of French Laundry alums needed an all-purpose white to complement the food at their new Colorado restaurant, they worked with Italian winemakers to create this - an homage to traditional Friuli field blends drunk with honest (and delicious) northern Italian food. They named the project Scarpetta - slang for the act of swiping your plate with bread to sop up all the sauce.

It's a blend of Friulano and Chardonnay, picked ripe, fermented cool, and aged briefly in stainless steel.  Ripe apple, peach, and green grape fruit are the main story here, with just a hint of green herb, fresh flowers, and wet stone.  With enough bright acidity to pair with any fresh food and enough body to be enjoyable all on its own, it's a fun alternative to Pinot Grigio for seafood, cheese, or even "Frico" - the region's signature mess of fried potatoes and cheese.

Di Lenardo Pinot Grigio Friuli 2015 Product #30848 (In Stock)
Di Lenardo Pinot Grigio Friuli 2015 Di Lenardo Pinot Grigio Friuli 2015

A long-time favorite is better than ever in the outstanding 2015 vintage! 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.

Fossa Mala Borgo Magnolia Pinot Grigio 2015 Product #30694 (In Stock)
Fossa Mala Borgo Magnolia Pinot Grigio 2015 Fossa Mala Borgo Magnolia Pinot Grigio 2015

Sometimes the crisp, fresh, Pinot Grigio's of Alto Adige just don't fit the bill - you want a richer, broader, wine with a touch more heft.  This generous beauty from just outside Venice does the trick.  Apple and pear fruit take center stage with just a touch of spice and plenty of freshness at the end.  A great sipper and even better with seafood and fruited summer salads. Fun stuff!

Villa Brunesca Pinot Grigio 2015 Product #30957 (In Stock)
Villa Brunesca Pinot Grigio 2015 Villa Brunesca Pinot Grigio 2015

In Italy's stellar 2015 harvest, 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!

Luisa Pinot Grigio Isonzo Del Friuli Doc 2015 Product #31300 (In Stock)

One of the best Pinot Grigios we've offered in years is even better in the brilliant 2015 vintage.  The Luisa family have made wine here since Francesco purchased a small plot on the glacial plain of Friuli 80 years ago (you'll find his grandchildren's names on the front label).  Friuli is a touch warmer than Alto Adige, and the extra ripeness allows the juice to be left in contact with skins for a few hours before pressing.  Yellow pear, grated ginger, Golden Delicious apple, and white flowers all weave in and out of the generous aromas and rich, deep, flavors.  A touch of fruit blossom and almond add interest to the lip-smacking finish on this classy, complex, white. By all means, pop and pour this for casual cocktail sipping, but be sure to try it with pear and cheese salads and fresh seafood, too.

This is real Soave - made from 100% Garganega grapes grown in the limestone rich soils of Soave's Classico zone.  Aromas and flavors of lemon peel, almond, and hazelnut lead to a palate of peach, fresh nut, fresh flowers, and lemon and more.  There's fine richness and a bit of green apple to go with the lemon, mineral, and toasted nut flavors on the long, vibrant, finish.  Fine stuff.

Begali Amarone Della Valpolicella Classico 2012 Product #30731 (In Stock)
Begali Amarone Della Valpolicella Classico 2012 Begali Amarone Della Valpolicella Classico 2012

As Wine Advocate said in late 2013, “If you can name but two producers in Valpolicella (I’m betting they are Dal Forno and Quintarelli), it’s now time to add a third: Lorenzo Begali.”  Begali’s Amarone isn’t quite as hefty as Dal Forno and is much cleaner and less rustic than Quintarelli, but we agree that the quality-levels are very similar – even if the prices are about 80% less!

Soaring aromas of dried black cherry, blueberry, and blackberry are framed by subtle notes of oak, tobacco and chocolate.  On the palate the wine is amazingly pure, clean, and fresh – even at 15.5% abv! – with layers and layers of rich fresh fruit, dried berry and raisin, crushed flower, dark chocolate, cured tobacco, and sweet spice.  Plenty of Amarone richness and power, for sure, but with impeccable balance and silkiness of texture and perfectly integrated alcohol.  The juicy, fruit and spice-filled finish sails on over ripe tannins with berry and raisin flavors lingering on and on.  Put some away to enjoy with warming winter meals but don’t hesitate to pop a bottle now to pair with ribs, brisket, or any other rich food off the grill.
