Monte Degli Angeli Pinot Noir Monferrato 2013 Product #28924 (In Stock)
Monte Degli Angeli Pinot Noir Monferrato 2013 Monte Degli Angeli Pinot Noir Monferrato 2013

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.

Crivelli Grignolino D' Asti 2012 Product #27649 (In Stock)
Crivelli Grignolino D' Asti 2012 Crivelli Grignolino D' Asti 2012

This is a spectacular rendition of Piemonte's Gignolino, a wine of robust and fresh aromas and flavors and smooth as silk finish.  The translucent cherry red color is a showstopper, but the bold aromas of tangy strawberry, crunchy black cherry, citrus peel and a touch of tar are even better.  Round and mouthwateringly bright, the wine finishes juicy and long with very soft, fine, tannins.  Pure, unadulterated, fun.

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!

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.

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!

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.

Vietti Barbera D'asti Tre Vigne 2012 Product #29136 (In Stock)
Vietti Barbera D'asti Tre Vigne 2012 Vietti Barbera D'asti Tre Vigne 2012

Wine Spectator Top 100!  Great to see this long-time favorite get some extra recognition! The oak is a tad forward now, so decant it for 30 minutes tonight.

"Intense graphite and mineral notes underpin the 2012 Barbera d'Asti Tre Vigne. Black cherries, smoke, plums, licorice and dark spices flesh out in a vibrant, pulsating wine built on serious Asti energy. A grippy, intense finish rounds things out in style. Vietti's Barbera d'Asti Tre Vigne delivers the goods, and then some."  Antonio Galloni 90 points

"A bright, flashy version, featuring black currant and blackberry fruit that shows notes of vanilla and spice. The oak adds tannins, lending this a tight feel on the otherwise fine finish."Wine Spectator 90 points

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!

Vietti Arneis 2013 Vietti Arneis 2013

From the family that "saved" Arneis, grapes for this wine come from the middle of the Roero area, in Santo Stefano Roero. Pale sunshine yellow color with fresh floral, citrus and melon aromas with hints of almonds. An unoaked, dry, medium bodied white wine with crisp acidity, the Arneis is well-balanced, elegant wine with good complexity and a lingering finish.

Rovero Nebbiaia Monferrato Rosso 2011 Product #29320 (In Stock)
Rovero Nebbiaia Monferrato Rosso 2011 Rovero Nebbiaia Monferrato Rosso 2011

A brand new winery to us, but one that's clearly onto something good.  This is 100% Nebbiolo, organically grown in Monferato near Asti.  Big, generous, aromas and flavors of black cherry and plum take center stage with accents of spice and vanilla.  Dusty, rich, tannins give the wine mass and structure, but the fruit just won't quit pumping out from begging to end.  Mouthwatering, long, and - all to rare for Nebbiolo - flat out fun to drink.

Rovero Lajetto Pinot Nero 2010 Product #29390 (In Stock)
Rovero Lajetto Pinot Nero 2010 Rovero Lajetto Pinot Nero 2010

Pinot Noir has excellent potential in Piemonte's foggy, rolling, hills, with warm summer days driving nice ripeness and cool nights and poor soils helping to retain freshness and grace.  Lajetto is a fine example, a rich, ripe, and really delicious Pinot Noir with just a touch of Nebbiolo style.  Grown on the family’s estate in Asti, this gets extra body and depth from 12 months in small oak barrels.  There’s a nice spice to the dark red fruit and just a touch of Nebbiolo-like tar and roses and finishes smooth and velvety.

Rovero Schiavino (Cab Blend) Monferrato Rosso 2009 Rovero Schiavino (Cab Blend) Monferrato Rosso 2009

If we're going to offer a Piemonte Sauvignon Blanc from Rovero, we might as well go ahead with this blend of 20% each Barbera, Nebbiolo, Merlot and 40% Cabernet. One expects Northern Italian Cab to be light, thin, and very tobacco-laden, but Rovero's signature richness and round palate are nicely on display here.  Black plum, blackberry, currant, dried tobacco and a touch of smoke all swirl around in the nose and on the palate in a wine that finishes with fine tannins and good length.  Fire up the grill!
