Odoardi Savuto Red 2013 Product #30699 (In Stock)
Odoardi Savuto Red 2013 Odoardi Savuto Red 2013

A paradox - how can such a fresh, vibrant, red come from the brutally hot Southern Italian DOC of Savuto in Calabria?  Elevation (Odoardi's vineyards are at up to 2,000 feet) helps, as does a big dose (45%) of Gaglioppo, the soft and bright grape called Arvino locally.  Gaglioppo gives this bright cherry/berry fruit and a soft, round, juicy mid-palate while Aglianico (25%) adds structure and Magliocco Caniino, Greco Nero, and Nerello Cappuccino perfume and complexity.  A great pizza, sausage, pasta, grilled food red, especially with a chill.

Cantele Salice Salentino Riserva 2012 Product #30396 (In Stock)
Cantele Salice Salentino Riserva 2012 Cantele Salice Salentino Riserva 2012

If you know Negromaro from Salice Salentino, you’ll recognize the aromas and flavors here.  The dark color tells you this is a ripe, deep, wine, and the aromas of dark black plum and cherry, warm licorice root, savory spice, and purple flowers reinforce that impression.  In the mouth, the flavors are bold, warming and ripe – blackberry, black cherry, hot earth, roasted meat, spice and cocoa powder – with plenty of the meaty, earthy, complexity that Salice Salentino is known for.  But, it’s the purity, clarity, and wonderful freshness of flavor and texture that take this to another level.  Ripe, not roasted.  Powerful, not rustic.  Absolutely delicious with grilled sausages, roasted meats, or just nuts and olives, at a value price hard to resist.

Cantine Farro Falanghina 2014 Product #30337 (In Stock)
Cantine Farro Falanghina 2014 Cantine Farro Falanghina 2014

This is 100% Falanghina, the best white grape of Southern Italy. From first aromas through the lingering finish, the region’s volcanic soils speak clearly here.  Aromas of tangy pineapple, peach, apricot, fresh straw and white flowers lead to tangy, brisk, flavors of stone fruit, lemon curd, and green peach.   A fantastic food wine to pair with pasta primavera, or even fennel-laced Italian sausages.

Terredora Di Paolo Fiano Di Avellino 2014 Product #30729 (In Stock)
Terredora Di Paolo Fiano Di Avellino 2014 Terredora Di Paolo Fiano Di Avellino 2014

Terredora’s “basic” wine is a benchmark for classically styled Fiano, with loads of tropical fruit and a rich, full-bodied, texture balanced by mouthwatering acidity and laser-like focus.  Grapes harvested in the first 10 days of October ferment and age in steel including a few months on the lees.  The aromas and flavors are captivating if hard to describe:  flowers, pear, apricot, citrus, acacia, herb honey and toasted hazelnut notes weave in and out.  Brilliant stuff!

"Rich aromas of apple, herbs and flint. Very fresh and saline, showing a juicy mouthfeel and sneaky concentration to its stone fruit and herb flavors. Finishes with noteworthy persistence."   Vinous (D'Agata) 90+ points

Pietracupa Taurasi 2008 Product #29257 (In Stock)
Pietracupa Taurasi 2008 Pietracupa Taurasi 2008

Often called "the Barolo of the South," Aglianico reaches its top expression in the rugged hills around Taurasi. A big, powerful, wine that shines with lamb and olives.

"A traditional style, delivering dried cherry and cranberry fruit mixed with tarry smoke, bresaola and grilled herb notes. This is dense and well-knit, with supple tannins and an aromatic, lightly floral finish."Wine Spectator 91 points
