La Bastarda Bianco Toscana 2013 Product #29363 (In Stock)
La Bastarda Bianco Toscana 2013 La Bastarda Bianco Toscana 2013

As the whimsical label suggests, there's no reason to take this fresh and fruit-filled Trebbiano (70%) and Chardonnay blend too seriously.  Big, juicy, white peach, apricot, and lemon fruit sings out here with more zesty peach fruit and a touch of bitter almond on the finish.  A fine sipper and even better companion for trout, scampi or white fish.

Il Bastardo Sangiovese Toscana 2014 Product #29839 (In Stock)

A fun, flavorful, and fine value Tuscan Sangiovese made by Paolo Masi from grapes grown near Rufina in Chianti. Ripe aromas and flavors of cherry and red berry start off bright and fresh and then get darker with a little air. The juicy acidity and light tannins make this easy to just sip, but give it enough substance to enjoy with pizza, burgers, or a big bowl of pasta and red sauce.  There's enough going on here to hold your interest through a few glasses and - especially at this price - tempt you to open a second bottle as the night goes on.  Fun stuff!

Poggio Alloro Vernaccia Di San Gimignano 2013 Product #29024 (In Stock)
Poggio Alloro Vernaccia Di San Gimignano 2013 Poggio Alloro Vernaccia Di San Gimignano 2013

Since at least 1276, the first time the grape is mentioned in historical records, Tuscany’s own Vernaccia grape has delivered whites of true character and refreshing zest.  Nearly wiped out by easier to grow, and higher yielding, Trebbiono and Malvasia in the mid-20th Century, Vernacchia was saved when Italy created Tuscany’s first (and only) white wine DOC for Vernacchia grown on the sandstone soils around the old city of San Gimignano.

Poggio Alloro’s 2013 Vernaccia di San Gimignano shows just why this great white grape was worth saving.  Give it a swirl and you’ll be rewarded with beguiling aromas of citrus, white flowers, chammomile and a little fresh hay.  Take a sip and you’ll love the flavors of honeycrisp apple, Meyer lemon, fennel frond, and lime.  The crisp, mouthwatering, finish delivers more fruit with notes of flint and bitter almond and pulls you back for another taste.  A great warm weather sipper and even better with fish, shrimp, and crunch summer salads.

Le Pupille Morellino Di Scansano 2012 Product #29353 (In Stock)
Le Pupille Morellino Di Scansano 2012 Le Pupille Morellino Di Scansano 2012

From Tuscany's coastal regions, Pupille's mainly Sangiovese (just a dash of Alicante and Malvasia Nera for complexity) is always wonderfully perfumed, but has an extra dose of ripe fruit this year.

"This is much fruitier than past vintages yet super fresh and clean. It's a wine that you want to drink all yourself. Medium to full body, fresh acidity and a long, bright finish. Very perfumed. Drink now. Excellent value."   James Suckling 91 points

"Freshly cut flowers, mint, sweet red berries and cinnamon are some of the notes that lift from the glass in Le Pupille's 2012 Morellino di Scansano. This pliant, expressive Morellino is a great choice for drinking over the next 2-3 years. Drops of Alicante and Malvasia Nera round out the blend."  Antonio Galloni 88 points

Guicciardini Morellino Di Scansano Massi Di Mandorlaia 2011 Product #28789 (In Stock)
Guicciardini Morellino Di Scansano Massi Di Mandorlaia 2011 Guicciardini Morellino Di Scansano Massi Di Mandorlaia 2011

From the southern Tuscan Coast, this blend of Sangiovese (85%) and equal parts Merlot, Cabernet, and Alicante delivers a lot of Italian energy with a touch of International flair.  Big aromas of Bing and black cherry plus fresh cut flowers lead to a juicy black cherry flavors with accents of leather, herb, and scorched earth.  The fruit keeps on pumping through the long, finely tanninc, finish.  A great match for rich meats or stews.

Gracciano Della Seta Vino Nobile Di Montepulciano 2011 Product #28798 (In Stock)
Gracciano Della Seta Vino Nobile Di Montepulciano 2011 Gracciano Della Seta Vino Nobile Di Montepulciano 2011

An exciting, 100% Sangiovese, Vino Nobile that's been softened by 24 months in large barrel but still retains a bit of Montepulciano's wildness.  Generous aromas of dark fruit, spiced, and aged tobacco.  Then a plush, velvety, mouthful of ripe raspberry, cherry, and balsamic macerated strawberry fruit with accents of smoke, spice, and leather.  The texture and finely tanninc finish are smooth and classy with nice squirt of cranberry tang at the end.

Tenuta di Valgiano Palistorti Rosso 2011 Product #29058 (In Stock)
Tenuta di Valgiano Palistorti Rosso 2011 Tenuta di Valgiano Palistorti Rosso 2011

A blend of biodynamically grown Sangiovese and 15% each Merlot and Syrah from pebble and sandstone laced vineyards overlooking the walled Tuscan city of Luca.  I can’t quite decide if this is more like a 3-4 year-old Brunello or a really nice vintage of Antinori’s Tignanello super-Tuscan.  From the nose to the rich, powerful, palate this explodes with pure black cherry, fruit blossom, spice, and expensive leather aromas and flavors.  The very deep flavors get support from fine-grained, ripe, tannins as hints of crushed herb, licorice, and expensive balsamic weave in and out of the long, long, finish.  Distinctive, delicious, and very nicely priced.

"The 2011 Palistorti di Valgiano is fabulous. A bevy of expressive red fruit, flowers, spices and mint hit the palate in this expressive, exuberant wine. Readers who want to learn about Valgiano can start here. This is a gorgeous entry-level offering."  Antonio Galloni 92 points
