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)

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)

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.

Vajra Langhe Rosso 2011 Product #27989 (In Stock)
Vajra Langhe Rosso 2011 Vajra Langhe Rosso 2011

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!

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!

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!

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.

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.

Guidobono Roero Arneis 2013 Product #28962 (In Stock)
Guidobono Roero Arneis 2013 Guidobono Roero Arneis 2013

Here's a great value in classic, nicely ripe, Arneis from Roero, just outside of Barolo.  Bright, fresh, aromas of citrus fruit and melon with a touch of fennel lead to juicy flavors of Honeydew, apple and under-ripe pineapple.  The anise/fennel note builds on the crisp, clean, finish.  Easy drinking Arneis with enough class to shine with salads and fresh herbs.

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)

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!

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.

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.

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

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!

Luigi Baudana Dragon Langhe Bianco 2012 Product #28470 (In Stock)
Luigi Baudana Dragon Langhe Bianco 2012 Luigi Baudana Dragon Langhe Bianco 2012

Let's forget that this is mainly Chardonnay because the experience here is more about "Piemonte" and "Yum" than Chard.  Loads of citrus and orchard fruit flavors with zingy citrus and a hint of slate. An exotic and delicious blend of Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Nascetta and a tiny amount of Riesling.

"Made by Giuseppe Vajra in Serralunga; lightly oaked. Very perfumed with a Riesling-like spine. Exciting structure. Unfolds on the palate. Very lightly oily indeed. Some evolution. I could swear there's some Riesling in there! But apparently it is all Chardonnay… Brings to mind Terry Thiese's 'always go for a Chardonnay from the village of Riesling'. I commend this fascinating wine to you. It is quite dry enough to savour with food, but intriguing and refreshing enough to drink before, or even after, a meal. It doesn't taste especially alcoholic though it's not short of body."  JancisRobinson.com 16.5/20 points
