La Cappuccina Soave 2014 Product #30447 (In Stock)
La Cappuccina Soave 2014 La Cappuccina Soave 2014

As fine a release of this long-time favorite as we've ever seen! 100% Garganega (organic!) with 5 months lees contact for richness and depth. A rich, almost opulent, texture to the lemon, mineral, and grilled nut flavors with bitter citrus pith and orange zest on the mouthwatering finish. More than rich enough to enjoy solo, but stunning with smoked, grilled or poached fish.

Kellerei Kaltern Caldaro Schiava 2014 Product #30153 (In Stock)
Kellerei Kaltern Caldaro Schiava  2014 Kellerei Kaltern Caldaro Schiava  2014

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 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!

Classic is hand harvested, hand made, Soave from100% Garganega, the region's best grape.  You'll find scents and flavors of smoked stones, flowers, yelow stone fruit, and almost in a richly textured, deeply flavored wine with a long, lemon and almond-inflected finish.  Ripe but with very fine acidity, it's a delicious match for fatty fish, shellfish, and poultry.

I Magredi Tocco Prosecco Nv Product #30202 (In Stock)
I Magredi Tocco Prosecco Nv I Magredi Tocco Prosecco Nv

Virginia-based Roanoke Valley Wine Company has always had a special connection to Italy, and here they've worked with partners at Veneto-based I Magridi to bring us a delightful Prosecco value.  Grown in Italy's Northeastern Provence of Friuli, it's a high-quality bottle of bubbly that doesn't take itself too seriously.  Zesty aromas of pear, peach and spice lead to a nicely rich and creamy mouthful of orchard fruits with hints of hazelnut and spice.  Plenty of festive fizz keeps things fresh through the spicy, rich, and easygoing finish.  A fun glass of traditional Prosecco refreshment.

Musella Valpolicella 2013 Product #29929 (In Stock)
Musella Valpolicella 2013 Musella Valpolicella 2013

Tre Bicchieri!  With its sappy cherry/berry fruit and touch of bitter almond and lavender, Valpolicella is a great partner for sausage, cheese, and simple suppers.  Musella is one of the best in the region, and their 2012 was named on of Italy's top releases in 2015 for its ripe blackberry and black cherry fruit, leather and briar accents, and fresh, supple, finish.  Delicious!

Musella Ripasso 2011 Product #29930 (In Stock)
Musella Ripasso 2011 Musella Ripasso 2011

Valpolicella Ripasso is often called “baby Amarone,” but this lovely 2011 from the certified biodynamic Musella estate is better than that.  It’s a blend of Corvina (about 70%), Rondinella (20%) and a scant 10% Barbera for an extra layer of complexity and lift.  About 20% of the wine is made from air-dried grapes and 20% from fresh, with the remaining 60% “ripasso” – allowed to undergo a brief second fermentation on the Amarone lees.  A few months in larger French oak casks helps smooth out and integrate the wine without adding any oaky flavors.

Seductive aromas of dried cherry, cranberry and strawberry shine through on the nose with hints of menthol, tar, and lavender.  The palate is silky, fresh, and layered, with dried black cherry and cranberry fruit and accents of dried flowers, chocolate, spice, and earth.  The finish is juicy and balances sweet fruit with a sour cherry tang that lingers on nicely over fine, supple, tannins.  Clean, pure, and loads of fun to drink, this will be a great match for pizza, burgers, and pork now and for the next 3-4 years

Musella Amarone 2010 Product #29931 (In Stock)
Musella Amarone 2010 Musella Amarone 2010

Here’s everything you love about Amarone – richness, length, power – in a beautifully balanced wine you’ll enjoy with a wide range of foods.  On the nose there's loads of rich, dried black fruit and rich, dark, spice and chocolate with a pretty accent of crushed flowers and tar.  It’s big and mouthfilling and pumps out generous quantities of dried cherry, raspberry and cranberry fruit to go with notes of soy, tar, and smoke.  For all its size and power, though, the wine stays wonderfully fresh and poised and finishes clean and long.

"The 2010 Amarone della Valpolicella delivers great bang for your buck. This is an exceptional red wine that is loaded tight with the distinct intensity and boldness that characterizes wines made from air-dried grapes. Thick layers of dark cherry, raisin and prune peel back slowly. In the mouth, there is a touch of sweetness followed by flavors of barbecue smoke and teriyaki."Wine Advocate 92 points
