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.

Sulin Giabine Monferrato Bianco 2015 Product #31417 (In Stock)
Sulin Giabine Monferrato Bianco 2015 Sulin Giabine Monferrato Bianco 2015

Here's an enchanting blend of Cortese - for body and herbal complexity - and Chardonnay  - for stone and orchard fruit - both grown in the hills just outside of Barolo and Barbaresco.  It's fresh and lemony with crisp green apple and ripe orchard fruit aromas and flavors lifted by refreshing lime and lemon zest accents.  Green melon and more apple fruit well up on the fresh, clean, finish with the flavors persisting longer than you'd expect.  A lip-smacking, fresh and fun wine that will delight at a party and really sing with fresh fish or shrimp.

Monte Degli Angeli Pinot Noir Monferrato 2015 Product #30859 (In Stock)
Monte Degli Angeli Pinot Noir Monferrato 2015 Monte Degli Angeli Pinot Noir Monferrato 2015

You've got to be willing to think a bit outside the box to find real, honest, Pinot Noir selling for less than $10 these days.  Here we head to Italy's Piemonte region - more famous for Barolo and Barbaresco - to a small family-owned estate run by Brothers Antonio and Paolo Sperone.  The climate here is closer to Burgundy than you'd expect, and it lets the Sperones harvest ripe, juicy, Pinot Noir fruit and then give it 6 months in barrel to soften and gain complexity.  Black cherry and strawberry fruit hold center stage here with accents of smoke and fresh earth.  Juicy in the middle and supported by light, fine, tannin, this is a steal in value Pinot Noir that tastes like...well, Pinot Noir!

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.

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.

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!

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!

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!

Borgo Maragliano Crevoglio Chardonnnay 2015 Product #31403 (In Stock)
Borgo Maragliano Crevoglio Chardonnnay 2015 Borgo Maragliano Crevoglio Chardonnnay 2015

Italy's Piemonte is a hotbed of white wine experimentation these days, and Chardonnay looks to be the most promising variety of all.  This beauty grows outside of Barolo in the midst of hazelnut groves, is harvested by hand, and ferments and ages cool and slow in stainless steel tanks.  It's loaded with ripe apple, peach and lemon fruit with a hint of spice and hazelnut (from the grapes, not the trees!).  Fresh and easy drinking, this is lip-smacking Chardonnay you'll love sipping on while dinner simmers, pairing with salads and fish, or sharing with a holiday party crowd.

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)
Guidobono Roero Arneis 2014 Guidobono Roero Arneis 2014

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 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.

Andrea Oberto Barbera D'alba 2014 Andrea Oberto Barbera D'alba 2014

A classic Alba Barbera here with chunky flavors and fine acidity.  Aromas of earthy dried cherry and cocoa bean on the nose and then round, mouthfilling, flavors of black cherry, red flowers, more cocoa dust and even some cracked pepper.  There’s a nice earthy, almost balsamic, note hiding down deep and the finish is long and refreshing.  Drinking just about perfectly right now!

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 Product #31102 (In Stock)
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.

"This is delicate aromatically, boasting floral, peach, apple and lemon notes. There’s more weight on the palate, where the peach and apple flavors reign, playing out with citrus and spice accents. Shows fine harmony and texture. Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Nascetta and Riesling. Drink now through 2020. 1,800 cases made."Wine Spectator 90 points

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!

Andrea Oberto Nebbiolo Lange 2015 Andrea Oberto Nebbiolo Lange 2015

Yes, it's dead young Nebbiolo and never saw a barrel.  But this rich, velvety, and fruit-filled "baby Barolo" is wildly delicious and fun to drink right now.  Roses, tar and cherry aromas lead to broad, rich, and very ripe red cherry, strawberry, crushed flower and earthy spice flavors.  Plenty of tannin, but it's sweet and supple and melts with food.  From young (8-10 year-old) vines in La Mora, this is a compelling introduction to Italy's greatest grape and will delight new explorers and hard-core Barolo fans alike.

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.
