Bricco Dei Tati Cortese Piemonte 2012 Product #28090 (In Stock)

Cortese is best known as the grape of Gavi, but it's grown seldom as interesting as this! This wine is surprisingly complex on the nose, although we struggled to put it to words. Think of smelling an herbal infusion with lemon, honey, and lavender on a sunny day. (Fanciful, but it's the best I could do!) In the mouth the wine is clean and crisp with notes of lemon, bees wax, and fresh herbs complicated by something hard to describe but vaguely grapefruity. finishes clean and fresh with just a hint of green apple. this is going to be our "go to" for picnics, cold seafood salads, and simple chicken dishes. A whole lotta wine for the money.

Villa Dria Gascogne Blanc Colombard Sauvignon 2012 Product #27154 (In Stock)
Villa Dria Gascogne Blanc Colombard Sauvignon 2012 Villa Dria Gascogne Blanc Colombard Sauvignon 2012

The motto here is “Gascony seen by a feminine point of view.”  Other than the fact that the estate is led by women, I’m not sure what that really means, but this is a heck of a delicious white for Spring and Summer sipping.  The blend is 80% Colombard – the main white grape in Gascony – for bright acidity and round texture and 20% Sauvignon Blanc for a big burst of fruit and touch of fresh hay.  The fruit flavors coat your palate with ripe green melon, golden apple, and orange/tangerine flavors set off by lemony acids, a dash of minerality, and a whiff of fresh cut grass.  A great summer sipper that delivers Sauvignon Blanc-like flavors that have been softened and tamed by the Colombard.  Yummy with salads, asparagus, shellfish, or just to sip on its own.

De Angelis Falerio Doc Bianco 2012 Product #27161 (In Stock)
De Angelis Falerio Doc Bianco 2012 De Angelis Falerio Doc Bianco 2012

The Falerio DOC sits at the southern end of Marche, on Italy's Adriatic coast just East of Umbria.  The relatively new DOC was created in 1975 to promote the region's two best white wine grapes-Passerina and Pecorino-while continuing to allow use of the ubiquitous Trebbiano. 

This 2012 Falerio is a fresh, young, wine with all of the refreshing, spritzy qualities of the 2011, but with an extra notch of richness.  The aromas are like sniffing limes and peaches at the beach-plenty of green and orchard fruit aromas with a saline note of the sea in the background.  On the palate, there's loads of ripe, creamy peach and nectarine fruit with a spritz of key lime juice and seltzer followed by a chalky, salty, mineral-driven, finish.  There's a lot of creamy richness here that will please fans of unoaked Chardonnays, but the zesty acidity and mineral element make this super fresh and mouthwatering.  Brilliant with a garlicky scampi and seafood but pretty darn fun to just drink at a party or with friends over antipasti.  Staggering value.

Martinez Lacuesta Blanco Rioja 2012 Product #27182 (In Stock)
Martinez Lacuesta Blanco Rioja 2012 Martinez Lacuesta Blanco Rioja 2012

This is 100% Viura grown in selected sites across Rioja. The ripe grapes are pressed and the juice goes into all new barrels - a mixture of French and American oak and acacia - to ferment and rest for 3 months. After that, the wine moves into stainless steel to complete its maturation, retaining freshness and verve to go along with the light oak influence.

The 2012 is a lot like the 2011 but a tad richer and deeper. Give it a sniff, and you'll be rewarded with pretty springtime aromas of peach, pineapple, and almond blossom. Take a sip and you'll discover a round, creamy, textured wine that's bursting with zesty fruit and juicy acids. After you swallow, you'll notice the fresh flavors lingering nicely as a hint of honey and bitter almond emerge at the end. Almost too easy to drink by itself for refreshment and fun, you'll love how this enhances warm weather favorites like fresh fish, grilled mushrooms, or marinated chicken.

Cadastres Picpoul De Pinet 2012 Product #27516 (In Stock)
Cadastres Picpoul De Pinet 2012 Cadastres Picpoul De Pinet 2012

This 100% estate grown Picpoul de Pinet clearly demonstrates just how under-rated this variety is. You’ll find pretty aromas of white flowers, lemon/lime citrus, and anise/fennel notes to start.  Then a crisp, minerally, texture with tart granny smith apple, green melon, and lemon/lime flavors and a clean, dry, finish.  This is just a great all-around daily white, with enough flavor and body to shine by itself at a party and enough complexity and depth to pair well with freshwater fish and lighter poultry dishes.  Tremendous value!

Champteloup Rose d'Anjou 2013 Product #28289 (In Stock)
Champteloup Rose d'Anjou 2013 Champteloup Rose d'Anjou 2013

While we in the USA tend to focus on rosé from the South of France, in Paris pink wine from Anjou in the nearby Loire Valley gets plenty of attention.  And, this is classic Parisian bistro rosé, made from from 70% Grolleau for fruit and 30% Cabernet Franc for herbal notes and spice.  Gentle aromas of cherry, strawberry, and crushed fresh herb lead to a juicy, fruity, mouthful of red berry fruit and a bit more herb.  A hint of watermelon candy comes up in the middle and the finish is frankly fruity and round, but dry and clean.  Cherry and watermelon Jolly Rancher notes linger on.  A fun wine to just sip on it's own and a great match for Asian dishes or anything with fruit.

Dinarells Negre Emporda 2012 Product #27165 (In Stock)
Dinarells Negre Emporda 2012 Dinarells Negre Emporda 2012

This is just shockingly interesting and delicious for the money.  It comes from Spain’s Emporda Costa Brava region in the very northeastern corner of Catalonia near the border with France. It’s steep, rocky, territory that’s regularly lashed by the Tramontane, strong northerly winds that can sweep through the region at 70mph.

A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot with traditional Garnacha and Carignon, this is hand-harvested and made in tank.  The show opens with luscious aromas of black plum, crushed blackberries, leather and bitter chocolate with just a touch of lavender.  Then, it’s juicy and fresh in the mouth with loads of sweet blackberry and plum fruit accented by a bit of bitter chocolate, earth and spice flavors. A squirt of blood orange acidity keeps things fresh and dark fruit, nutmeg, and slate notes all linger nicely.  Easy enough to just sip and enough going on to make it a great food wine, too.

A creative and frangrant South African white that blends Chenin Blanc (for body), Viognier (for floral perfume), and a touch of Sauvignon Blanc (for herbal snap).  It's crisp and citrusy with hints of tangy apple, chamomile, spice, and more.   Medium bodied, nicely textured, fresh, and very clean on the bright, dry, finish, this will make a great party white and work well with seafood and salads at table.  Outstanding value, too!

From Italy's island of Sardinia, this classic Vermentino is both delicious and a screaming value!  Made and aged in tank with brief lees contact to add a little body, it shows off cut apple, lemon, melon and a whiff of orange blossom. Nicely bright and juicy, this has enough fruit to drink on its own but will shine with a seafood salad with fennel or ceviche with orange.

Kellerei Kaltern Caldaro Schiava 2012 Product #27353 (In Stock)
Kellerei Kaltern Caldaro Schiava 2012 Kellerei Kaltern Caldaro Schiava 2012

Schiava (also called Vernatsch or Trollinger) was actually the region’s most planted grape for many years – with 60% of total vineyard area – until Pinot Grigio and Chardonnay began to supplant it.  That’s too bad, because the light, crisp, and juicy red wines this local grape makes are fun to drink and pair well with a wide range of foods.

Reflecting the cultural and linguistic diversity of Alto Adige, the Schiava grape is called “Kalterersee” in the local dialect of the region around Lake Caldaro.  Grapes for this beauty grew on loamy, limestone gravel soils at 230-450 meters above the Lake and were fermented and aged entirely in tank. A delicious farmhouse red, loaded with red berry fruit, a hint of smoke, and a bright gentle finish.  Kind of like a ripe Chinon (but without the herbal notes), this is delicious with a light chill and shines with everyday foods and cured meats.  Great value, too.

Cantele Salice Salentino Riserva 2009 Product #26941 (In Stock)
Cantele Salice Salentino Riserva 2009 Cantele Salice Salentino Riserva 2009

Gambero Rosso Tre Bicchieri and “Best Value of the Year”!  The highest honor awarded by the Italian’s guide to Italian wine doesn’t often go to wines from Puligia, much less wines that sell for this price.  From vineyards around the little Pulgia town of Salice Salentino, this is intended to be 100% Negromaro – although the vineyard is old and 5-10% of the vines planted years ago were probably Malvasia Nero.  Ripe fruit is picked in early September, rushed to the winery, and fermented cool in stainless steel.  Two years aging in one and two year-old small barrels rounds off the edges without adding oak flavors.

If you know Salice Salentino, you’ll recognize the aromas and flavors here.  The black 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.

One of Muscadet's oldest and best estates turned out a classic wine in the fine 2011 Loire vintage.  Aromas of sea shell, lime skin, and a hint of bready lees carry through on the bright, energetic, palate.  A fine mouthwatering Muscadet that has enough buffering richness (from time on the lees) to enjoy on it's own as well as with the classic pairing of raw oysters.

Even bigger, bolder, more fruit filled, and even more delicious than before (while still pretty garishly packaged).  From vineyards around Rome, the Volpetti packs a punch of lush dark damson plum and black cherry fruit with accents of earth and spice.  A short stay in old oak barrels softens the tannins and adds a hint of sweet balsamic.  Drink this a touch cool with pizza margherita, a bowl of pasta in red sauce, or even a big, juicy, burger and you'll be very, very, happy!
