Monte Degli Angeli Pinot Noir Monferrato 2014 Monte Degli Angeli Pinot Noir Monferrato 2014

A long-time favorite value Pinot Noir returns to form and the shelf!  From the region just outside of Barolo, this is full of fresh red berry aromas and flavors with a touch of fresh earth and floral accents.  Fresh and easy from first sip to the food friendly finish. The Manderin Oriental in DC used to serve this at $12 per glass - we like it even better at this price!

Franco Serra Barbera d'Alba 2013 Product #29356 (In Stock)
Franco Serra Barbera d'Alba 2013 Franco Serra Barbera d'Alba 2013

From a small Barbaresco producer, this fresh and fruity Barbera delivers a lot more complexity and satisfaction than it's humble price suggests.  Fresh and juicy Bing/black cherry fruit roll across your tongue with accents of fresh leather and aged Balsamic.  Long on the palate and mouthwatering finish where very light tannin gives a little extra support.  A pretty sophisticated wine for the price - great with pizza, pasta, or even on its own.

Lodali Moscato D'asti 2014 Product #29350 (In Stock)
Lodali Moscato D'asti 2014 Lodali Moscato D'asti 2014

A delightfully aromatic wine, with loads of fresh fruit flavors bursting from the glass. It is sweet, but beautifully balanced by the wine's effervescence and acidity. Being frizzante, it has only about half the effervescence of a sparkling wine, and is hard to resist. This wine makes a wonderful accompaniment to many desserts, especially those made with fruit such as peach, pear, apple and berries.

Fracchia Voulet Malvasia Di Casorzo D'asti 2013 Product #28298 (In Stock)
Fracchia Voulet Malvasia Di Casorzo D'asti 2013 Fracchia Voulet Malvasia Di Casorzo D'asti 2013

This delicious frizzante wine is a rare version of red Malvasia, vinified with a pleasant touch of sweetness and a light, frothy, sparkle. As The Washington Post’s Dave McIntyre said about the 2011, “This delightful little frizzante red from Piedmont is a cousin to Brachetto d’Acqui, and equal to Brachetto in its affinity for chocolate."  As always, the lightly sweet red raspberry and strawberry fruit is a delight!

Rocche Costamagna Barbera d'Alba 2012 Product #29313 (In Stock)
Rocche Costamagna Barbera d'Alba 2012 Rocche Costamagna Barbera d'Alba 2012

A classically rich and rustic Barbera with no oak. Aromas of ripe black cherry, blackberry and plum with accents of tobacco and earth.  In the mouth, the chunky fruit builds and get juicier, with the blackberry notes coming to the fore and a note of cherry pit and bitter almond emerging.  Finishes fresh and tangy with lingering berry and bitter almond flavors.  Great pizza/pasta red!

Salvano Gavi 2013 Product #29688 (In Stock)
Salvano Gavi 2013 Salvano Gavi 2013

Just what the Cortese grape is supposed to do in Piemonte's Gavi region.  Full-bodied and fleshy in texture with a crisp, dry, finish, this pumps out generous aromas and flavors of Granny Smith apple, lemon, and just a touch of stone fruit.  Lemon zest and a hint of anise emerge on the juicy, mouthwatering, finish.  Great with seafood or lighter meats.

La Mondianese Grignolino d'Asti 2013 Product #28622 (In Stock)
La Mondianese Grignolino d'Asti 2013 La Mondianese Grignolino d'Asti 2013

What is Grignolino?  A red wine grape from Piemonte, Italy, where the root name – grignole – means “many pips”, referring to the many seeds found in this rarely seen grape.  It’s prone to being tough and tannic, but not here.  Diane thought this tasted like “Pinot Noir and Sangiovese had a baby”, and there's definitely something to that.  In any event, it’s a lightly colored and textured wine that opens with aromas of sweet cherry, red berries, and a hint of lavender.  In the mouth the fruit is bright and juicy and a touch of earthiness comes up at the end.  Light enough to drink with fish or to take a chill for solo sipping.

Valdinera Chiaro Di Luna Rosato 2014 Product #29615 (In Stock)
Valdinera Chiaro Di Luna Rosato 2014 Valdinera Chiaro Di Luna Rosato 2014

You probably didn't start out looking for a 100% Nebbiolo rosé from vineyards near Italy's Barolo region - but just taste the supple, succulent, and utterly surprising Chiaro di Luna and you'll come back looking for more! There's a lot of body here - almost a red wine drinker's rose - but also fantastic freshness and vivacity to the cherry, red berry, and rose petal aromas and flavors.  The fruit is sweet and ripe and the finish dry, mouthwatering, and long.  Very highly recommended as a special pink treat!

Pecchenino Dolcetto Di Dogliani San Luigi 2013 Product #29054 (In Stock)
Pecchenino Dolcetto Di Dogliani San Luigi 2013 Pecchenino Dolcetto Di Dogliani San Luigi 2013

Another fine vintage for this rock-solid Dolectto that sings with pizza, pasta, and grilled fish.a

"The 2013 Dogliani San Luigi presents the silkier, more finessed side of Dolcetto. Floral aromatics meld into a core of expressive red stone fruits in a mid-weight, gracious Dogliani built on delicacy. The 2013 isn't a blockbuster, but it sure is gorgeous."  Antonio Galloni 91 points

Guidobono Langhe Nebbiolo 2013 Product #29330 (In Stock)
Guidobono Langhe Nebbiolo 2013 Guidobono Langhe Nebbiolo 2013

In the lovely 2013 Nebbiolo vintage, Guidobono delivers all the perfume of fine Nebbiolo with a silky, almost Pinot-like, texture and grace.  Sweet cherry, vibrant raspberry, baking spice, fresh earth, licorice root, and a note of crushed rose petal permeate the generous aromas and pure, fresh, flavors.  Turns tangy on the finish with fine tannins and lingering notes of berry, licorice, and rose.  A great match right now for roast chicken, mushroom risotto, or even mushroom-topped pizza!

Rovero Vigneto La Casaline Grignoino D'asti 2013 Product #29389 (In Stock)
Rovero Vigneto La Casaline Grignoino D'asti 2013 Rovero Vigneto La Casaline Grignoino D'asti 2013

Piemonte's old, but often overlooked, Grignolino grape is making a comeback, and we say, "Hurray!"  Named for the many seeds found in each berry (2-3x the number of seeds in most other grapes), Grignolino is always a pale, translucent, rose color reflecting both the grape's limited pigment and gentle winemaking needed to work around all those potentially bitter seeds.  This is a fine one that pumps out aromas of crushed cherry, strawberry, rose petal and more.  The palate is fresh, light, and bolstered by snappy acids and tannins.  Great wine for sipping with salami!

Valdinera Roero Arneis 2014 Product #29699 (In Stock)
Valdinera Roero Arneis 2014 Valdinera Roero Arneis 2014

The Careglio family makes this Arneis in Roero, near Alba in the heart of Piemonte.  Their 2014 Arneis is a beauty, our favorite in the store!  Lovely aromas and flavors of ripe peach and nectarine plus tart green apple and a pretty note of anise running throughout.  Ripe enough for a hint of honey to show in the middle, but with wonderfully refreshing acidity and a crisp, dry finish.

Guidobono Barbera d'Alba 2012 Product #29225 (In Stock)
Guidobono Barbera d'Alba 2012 Guidobono Barbera d'Alba 2012

A ripe and juicy Barbera that delivers $25 character at a much nicer price.  Fermented in tank and then given less than a year in older barriques, this delivers big Barbera aromas and flavors of black cherry, underbrush, and fresh cut flowers.  One notch more concentration and power than most Barbera in this price range, but still nice and fresh with mouthwatering acidity on the clean, bright, finish.

Salvano Fosco Dolcetto Di Diano D'alba 2011 Salvano Fosco Dolcetto Di Diano D'alba 2011

Diano d'Alba is one of a handful of DOCGs devoted to this often overlooked Piemonte grape. Salvano makes a beauty, robust and loaded with black plum and blackberry fruit and a touch of berry blossom.  Creamy in texture and very flavorful, this finishes with firm, grippy, tannins, plummy fruit, and a hint of classic almond.  Fresher than some Dolcetto and a fine match for sausage or just to sip.

Cascina Corte Dogliani Classico (Dolcetto) 2013 Product #29877 (In Stock)
Cascina Corte Dogliani Classico (Dolcetto) 2013 Cascina Corte Dogliani Classico (Dolcetto) 2013

In most of Piemonte, Dolcetto is an afterthought grape - what you grow in places that won't ripen Barbera or Nebbiolo and what you drink after work with some salami while waiting for dinner.  In the small commune of Dogliani, though, Dolcetto is the star and it's fun to find a bottle like this that really shines.  From organically farmed vines planted in 1946 and 1951, this is fleshy, fruity, and fresh, with big aromas and flavors of tangy cherry, sweet blackberry, crushed violets, and a touch of bitter chocolate.  It's a great companion to cured meats, cheeses, burgers, or pretty much any casual food.

Vietti Barbera D'asti Tre Vigne 2013 Product #29811 (In Stock)
Vietti Barbera D'asti Tre Vigne 2013 Vietti Barbera D'asti Tre Vigne 2013

The winery's "calling card" red is better than ever in the warm 2013 vintage.  Like the Wine Spectator Top 100 2012, it's a bright, juicy, Barbera with a touch of flash from time spent in small oak barrel.  Black cherry, blackberry, and currant fruit courses through the mid-palate with spicy oak giving attractive accents.  Fun to sip and great with everything from pizza to pasta to beef.

Oddero Barbera d'Alba 2011 Product #28605 (In Stock)
Oddero Barbera d'Alba 2011 Oddero Barbera d'Alba 2011

The go-to producer of our go-to varietal for refreshing, food friendly, fun has fully captured the potential of the outstanding 2011 Barbera harvest in Piemonte.  What makes 2011 so exciting for Barbera is how the hot summer days delivered more black cherry and blackberry fruit than usual while the cool nights retained classic levels of acidity and freshness.  While the best examples (like this one) will do nicely in your cellar for a few years, there’s no reason to delay gratification beyond the time it takes you to get home from the store.

Here you’ll find generous aromas of juicy black and red fruit plus a handful of crushed violets and the barest hint of smoke.  Take a sip and you’ll love the super smooth, almost slick, texture and big flavors of crushed berries, black cherry, licorice and subtle sweet spice.  The fresh, juicy, finish will keep pulling you back for another sip and I suspect you’ll find yourself saying “Yum” a lot as the bottle drains.  Even though it’s delicious by itself, where this bright Barbera shines is at table with sausage, roast chicken, grilled pork, and – of course – pizza or pasta.  A do not miss stunner.

Monsecco Vespolina Barbatasso 2011 Product #28116 (In Stock)
Monsecco Vespolina Barbatasso 2011 Monsecco Vespolina Barbatasso 2011

Another Italian oddity, and perhaps the most fun yet!  Vespolina means "little wasp" in Piemonte, a name earned perhaps for the sting of its naturally high acids.  Here, though, the acid is tamed by boatloads of black raspberry, blackberry juic, and red cherry fruit with accents of sandalwood, spice, incense, black pepper, and more.  Drink this bright, juicy, utterly compelling wine a tad cool with cured meats or spicy pizza.  Yummy!

Marchesi Alfieri Sostegno Monferrato Rosso 2012 Marchesi Alfieri Sostegno Monferrato Rosso 2012

The Alfieri family has been making wine here since 1616, so it's not surprising that they've figured a few things out.  Like how to blend Barbera and Pinot Noir to deliver lip-smaking yumminess.  Aromas of berries, orchard fruit, and cut flowers lead to a silky smooth mouthful of juicy cherry and plum fruit with a touch of wood spice for complexity.  Ripe acids and tannins give support and a delicious candied cherry note lingers on the mouthwatering finish.  Pizza, pasta, poultry or sipping all work here!
