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.

Villa Mottura Primitivo Di Manduria 2013 Product #30700 (In Stock)
Villa Mottura Primitivo Di Manduria 2013 Villa Mottura Primitivo Di Manduria 2013

Primitivo is a close relative to California's iconic Zinfandel, but with more acidity, less sweet fruit, and more earthy complexity.  This great example comes from Pulgia's Primitivo di Manduria DOC, perhaps the best for Primitivo in all Italy.  This is rich, deep, and spicy, with loads of earthy black fruit and accents of carob, walnut, and spice.  Enjoy this rich red with pasta, lamb, or olives!

Diomede Aglianico Campania 2014 Product #31114 (In Stock)
Diomede Aglianico Campania 2014 Diomede Aglianico Campania 2014

While Aglianico can be pretty serious, it can also be fruit-filled and fun just like it is here!  Ripe raspberry and Bing cherry fruit is layered with clove, cracked pepper and a touch of earth.  The firm tannins are ripe and melt away easily, making this a fantastic pizza and salumi red and a fine introduction to this sometimes formidable Campania grape. Juicy, fruit-filled fun!

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
