Cantele Salice Salentino Riserva 2011 Product #29454 (In Stock)
Cantele Salice Salentino Riserva 2011 Cantele Salice Salentino Riserva 2011

Another fine vintage for this deep South Italian red that is always robust, but never cooked or heavy. 100% Negromaro done all in tank for freshness.

"Firm and savory, this opens with aromas of ripe berry, clove and graphite. On the palate, notes of clove and black pepper add depth to ripe Morello cherry and crushed raspberry flavors. Supple tannins offer support."Wine Enthusiast 89 points

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.

Tenuta I Gelsi Ofanto Gelso Rosso 2011 Product #29643 (In Stock)
Tenuta I Gelsi Ofanto Gelso Rosso 2011 Tenuta I Gelsi Ofanto Gelso Rosso 2011

Aglianico is southern Italy's great red grape, but you can make a fun, festive, fine value wine from it, too!  Basilicata Aglianico is a bit riper and softer than in Campagnia, and Tenuta I Gelsi captures a remarkable amount of fresh fruit and juicy texture in this all tank, young vines, red.  Cherry and blackberry fruit are framed by notes of leather, mineral, licorice and bitter chocolate.  Fresh and juicy with grippy (but ripe) tannins, the plummy fruit and structure suggest a lighter version of California's Petite Sirah. A fine cookout or salami (or even pizza) red

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 Falanghina Irpinia 2014 Product #30135 (In Stock)
Terredora Di Paolo Falanghina Irpinia 2014 Terredora Di Paolo Falanghina Irpinia 2014

Falanghina is a wine that is often described as fun, but rarely as elegant.  This is an elegant Falanghina.  The exotic aromas of pineapple and quince are still there, but they are less flamboyant and obvious.  On the palate, it's moutfilling and finishes with fresh, juicy acids, but what really impresses is its sophisticated texture - not to heavy, but not too light.  Perfect for seafood and warm summer nights.

Tenuta I Gelsi Ofanto Aglianico L' Emozione 2007 Product #29644 (In Stock)
Tenuta I Gelsi Ofanto Aglianico L' Emozione 2007 Tenuta I Gelsi Ofanto Aglianico L' Emozione 2007

A late-released powerhouse Aglianico that shows the ripe fruit typical of Basilicata with plenty of earthy, black olive, complexity and depth.

"Spicy blackberry, raspberry, mint, tobacco, leather and a whiff of blue flower unfold in the glass. The succulent palate doles out crushed black cherry, espresso, mocha, black plum and savory herb alongside bracing tannins."Wine Enthusiast 90 points

Cantine Farro Le Cigliate Campi Flegrei Doc 2012 Product #29259 (In Stock)
Cantine Farro Le Cigliate Campi Flegrei Doc 2012 Cantine Farro Le Cigliate Campi Flegrei Doc 2012

Winemaker Michele Farro makes this blockbuster Falanghina from the “Cigliate” – older, ungrafted, vines that grow right on the edge of the volcanic craters of the Phlegraean Fields.  He harvests this concentrated fruit up to two weeks later than his other whites, giving the wine extra body, richness, and power.  The aromas and flavors here are complex and deep, with strong herbal/tobacco notes under the dusky stone fruit and exotic spice components.  The wine’s texture is fantastic, creamy and a bit reminiscent of white Chateauneuf du Pape, with hints of peach, coconut and mountain laurel emerging with air.

For all its richness and complexity, this finishes clean and bright, making it a fantastic choice for a richer summer sipper.  But, it will be even better with a mixed grill of calamari and shellfish, halibut with olives and capers, or soft, ripe, cheeses.

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
