Terre d'Almeramo Barbera Del Monferrato 2015 Product #31208 (In Stock)
Terre d'Almeramo Barbera Del Monferrato 2015 Terre d'Almeramo Barbera Del Monferrato 2015

Serious wine value fun alert here!  This is one of those wines you'll want on hand to pair with any meal, to serve with a chill on a warm day or to let warm up and gain richness on a cool autumn evening.  It's 100% Barbera, the juicy, low tannin, cherry and earth-laden grape of Piemonte to the south of Turin.  This example from Monferrato is just bursting with juicy black cherry fruit with accents of violets, leather, and spice.  There's a richness and depth here that many $20 Barberas lack and a sweet/tangy cherry and cherry pit finish that will keep you coming back for more.  A wine that screams "Italy" but will also please a crowd.

Franco Serra Barbera d'Alba 2014 Product #30220 (In Stock)
Franco Serra Barbera d'Alba 2014 Franco Serra Barbera d'Alba 2014

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.

Osel Ruche Monferrato 2011 Osel Ruche Monferrato 2011

You may never have heard of Ruche, but if you like aromatic grapes like Pinot Noir, and are searching for something that will sing with everything from Indian food to pizza, you've found your new best friend.  A traditional grape from Italy's Piedmont region, this is a soft, easygoing red with intriguing aromas of cherry, plum, lavendar, and floral notes.  Delicious and unique.

Lodali Moscato d'Asti 2015 Product #30607 (In Stock)
Lodali Moscato d'Asti 2015 Lodali Moscato d'Asti 2015

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.

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.

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.

Salvano Gavi 2014 Product #29947 (In Stock)
Salvano Gavi 2014 Salvano Gavi 2014

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, and a fine value, too!

Fracchia Voulet Malvasia Di Casorzo D'asti 2015 Product #30800 (In Stock)
Fracchia Voulet Malvasia Di Casorzo D'asti 2015 Fracchia Voulet Malvasia Di Casorzo D'asti 2015

This delicious frizzante wine is a rare version of red Malvasia, made with a 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!

Vajra Langhe Rosso 2013 Product #30865 (In Stock)
Vajra Langhe Rosso 2013 Vajra Langhe Rosso 2013

One of our favorite Barolo estates makes this blend of Nebbiolo, Dolcetto, Barbera with tiny bits of Albarossa, Freisa and Pinot Noir just for fun!  And, "fun" is the operative word here, in a wine that's bursting with strawberry, red plum, and juicy raspberry fruit.  Notes of black pepper and Asian spice add some complexity and there's just enough polished Nebbiolo tannin to give it shape.  Fantastic purity, zesty acidity, and plenty of luscious fruit make this pretty sophisticated, but mainly just delicious and, well, fun!

Il Falchetto Moscato d'Asti Ciombo 2015 Product #30983 (In Stock)
Il Falchetto Moscato d'Asti Ciombo 2015 Il Falchetto Moscato d'Asti Ciombo 2015

About as zesty as Moscato gets, this is really "drinking" Moscato, a wine you'll want to sip and enjoy all by itself before dinner or as the afternoon slides by.  Plenty of classic peach, mango, fresh flower, and lychee aromas and flavors with a ginger/spice lift and lemony acids.  At just 5.5% abv, there's a bit more acidity here than in some Moscato, making this especially bright and mouthwatering.

Guidobono Roero Arneis 2014 Product #29886 (In Stock)

What a value find in classic, nicely ripe, Arneis from Roero, just outside of Barolo. You'll love the generous pineapple, apricot and peach aromas and flavors with subtle accents of fennel and anise.  Creamy and dense on the palate with fine length to the flavors and then a clean, brisk, finish. There's enough weight for Chardonnay fans but no oak to get in the way of pure, delicious, pleasure.  A winner!

Pecchenino Dolcetto Di Dogliani San Luigi 2014 Product #30605 (In Stock)
Pecchenino Dolcetto Di Dogliani San Luigi 2014 Pecchenino Dolcetto Di Dogliani San Luigi 2014

Another fine vintage for this rock-solid Dolectto that sings with pizza, pasta, and grilled fish. A bit lighter than some releases, but still nicely ripe and fresh.  It's racy and taught with intense tangy raspberry and wild cherry aromas and flavors and just a touch of licorice.  Solid grip on the finish where a hint of herb tea shows through.

Paitin Arneis Langhe Elisa 2014 Product #29935 (In Stock)
Paitin Arneis Langhe Elisa 2014 Paitin Arneis Langhe Elisa 2014

If this crackling 2014 Piemonte white seems a little zestier, fresher, and more mineral than you'd expect - well, that's what blending 15% Riesling into the Arneis base does.  Peach and passion fruit aromas and flavors get a boost from Riesling's lime and stone notes.  A dash of white pepper and hints of fresh fennel add interest and plenty of juicy stone and citrus fruit drive the mouthwatering finish where hints of stone and slate linger.  Tasty stuff indeed!

Salvano Fosco Dolcetto Di Diano d'Alba 2012 Salvano Fosco Dolcetto Di Diano d'Alba 2012

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.

Rinaldi Moscato D'asti 2014 Product #31073 (In Stock)
Rinaldi Moscato D'asti 2014 Rinaldi Moscato D'asti 2014

A wine that reminds you that Moscato is - in addition to being lightly sweet and full of froth - a wine!  From the rolling (sometimes steep) hills of Italy's Piemonte region, this is 100% Muscat with fermentation stopped at 6% abv and the gas trapped and added back to the wine.  As Robert Parker said of the 92 point 2012,  "Each year, one of the finest Moscatos comes from Rinaldi..bursting with notes of honeysuckle, lychee nuts, peaches, mangoes and spring flowers. The intoxicatingly intense aromatics are followed by a wine with some residual sugar, although that component is well-balanced by the wine’s acidity and freshness."  Tasty stuff at brunch, with cheese, and fruit or hazelnut desserts.

Ca' Viola Dolcetto d'Alba Vilot 2014 Product #30533 (In Stock)
Ca' Viola Dolcetto d'Alba Vilot 2014 Ca' Viola Dolcetto d'Alba Vilot 2014

Critics systematically under-value Dolcetto for reasons that escape me.  It's one of the most satisfying, fresh, perfect-with-everything reds we know of and Ca' Viola's is among the very best.  Pop, pour, glug, smile. 

"The 2014 Dolcetto d'Alba Vilot is an attractive, mid-weight wine. Game, smoke, licorice and tobacco add nuance to a core of blue/purplish fruit. Drink this refreshing, energetic Dolcetto over the next 2-3 years."  Vinous (Galloni) 88 points

Luigi Baudana Dragon Langhe Bianco 2015 Luigi Baudana Dragon Langhe Bianco 2015

A stunner. Let's forget that this is mainly Chardonnay because the experience here is more about "Piemonte" and "Yum" than Chard.  Clean, fresh aromas and loads of citrus and orchard fruit flavors that get lift from a dose of zingy citrus and a hint of slate. An exotic and delicious blend of Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Nascetta and a tiny amount of Riesling for lime zest freshness.

"The 2013 Nebbiolo d'Alba Marghe shows tight lines and pristine flavors of small berry fruit, forest bramble, blanched almond and blue flower. The wine is simple and tight, but very nicely executed. Pungent tones of crushed white peppercorn appear on the close. Pair this simple Nebbiolo with entrecôte in cream sauce and a side of crispy fries."Wine Advocate 90 points

Ca' Viola Barbera d'Alba Brichet 2013 Ca' Viola Barbera d'Alba Brichet 2013

An outstanding Barbera in a rich, plush, velvety style for any type of food.

"The 2013 Barbera d'Alba Brichet is the archetype of modern Barbera and a great value to boot. Dark red cherry, pomegranate, wild flowers and spices are some of the notes that emerge from this bold, punchy Barbera. Silky, polished tannins round out soft contours on the expressive, textured finish."   Vinous 89 points

"Lush and juicy, boasting blackberry, black currant and sweet spice flavors. Shows tannins from oak, and remains long and defined on the aftertaste. Drink now through 2019."Wine Spectator 90 points

Vietti Arneis 2015 Product #30981 (In Stock)
Vietti Arneis 2015 Vietti Arneis 2015

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. Astonishingly good in 2015!
