San Crispino Chianti Classico 2014 Product #31790 (In Stock)
San Crispino Chianti Classico 2014 San Crispino Chianti Classico 2014

Proof that not all Chianti Classico is "serious" - although this is seriously fun to drink!  It's 100% Sangiovese from the best part of the Chianti zone with minimal wood influence.  It's bursting with juicy black cherry fruit with just a touch of earthy/leathery accents and spice. Really pumps out generous fruit over nicely grippy tannins.  An excellent value for pizza and pasta.

Dom De Menard Colombard Ugni Blanc 2016 Product #33356 (In Stock)
Dom De Menard Colombard Ugni Blanc 2016 Dom De Menard Colombard Ugni Blanc 2016

I know - "Ugni Blanc" doesn't sound very appetizing.  So call it Vermentino and blend it with fleshy textured Columbard and you get a pretty fine summer sipper! Pretty much screams "refreshing" with it's zesty aromas and flavors of cut pineapple, green lime, and fresh grapefruit zest.  Finishes with a touch of herb and nice snap, making this a fine Sauvignon Blanc alternative for hot days.

This was a delightful find last spring when we had it pegged as the best burger wine value for summer of 2017 and even more delicious in the fall.  Now, as the weather (finally!) gets ready to warm up again, this 100% Monestrell (Mourvedre in France) from all organic grapes is even better.  It’s a rich and fruity red with good heft and a gentle earthy complexity.

"Put this on your shopping list: The bargain red wine of the year...If you’re looking for a summer house red, this is an ideal candidate and a good match for burgers and steaks from the grill. It’s made from monastrell (known as mourvedre in France), and features dark cherry and dried fig flavors with hints of black olive, tea and tobacco. Made from organically grown grapes. This may be the best $10 red I’ve tasted in a long time."  2.5/3 Stars The Washington Post and Value Wine of the Year

“A dense and oaky nose with high spice and bright earthy beetroot. The palate is authentic and characterful with blueberry fruit and a pleasing creaminess reminiscent of raspberry ripple ice cream.”  Decanter Magazine 91 points

Ch La Pujade Corbieres Le Petit Spencer 2015 Ch La Pujade Corbieres Le Petit Spencer 2015

"The Little Spencer" is the "fun" wine from this respected Corbieres estate in the heart of sunny Languedoc.  It's a blend of 50% Carignan plus 20% Mourvedre and 15% each Syrah and Grenache, all grown in a natural amphitheater that gives and extra dose of ripeness. This tastes and feels like a more expensive wine with deep, rich, blue/black fruit, complex accents of hot stone, licorice, and garrigue and a nicely chewy finish.  Fun stuff especially with rustic, herb-laced, foods.

Palazzone Orvieto Classico Vignarco 2015 Product #31231 (In Stock)
Palazzone Orvieto Classico Vignarco 2015 Palazzone Orvieto Classico Vignarco 2015

We've featured Palazzone's other Orvietos before, but this year it was the Classico that really grabbed our attention.  It's a traditional blend of 50% Procanico, 30% Grechetto and dollops of Verdello, Drupeggio and Malvasia that comes together to deliver boatloads of classic Orvieto character.  What's that, you ask?  Try aromas and flavors of bright, fresh, sweet lemon juice with a twist of fennel frond and squeeze of honeysuckle.  Not a "light, crisp, neutral" Italian white, this sports big flavors and a rich, mouth-coating, texture and a long, mouthwatering, finish of lemon oil, honeysuckle, and mineral flavors lingering nicely.  There's enough body and interest and fruit to make this a joy to drink solo and it will sing with salads, seafood, and cheese.  A winning value that outperforms many wines at 2x the price.

Recorba Ribera Del Duero Tinto 2015 Product #31532 (In Stock)
Recorba Ribera Del Duero Tinto 2015 Recorba Ribera Del Duero Tinto 2015

The Recorba Ribera del Duero Tinto is an example of what happens when you get Tempranillo all the way ripe and then let it show it’s colors without any wood at all.  Big aromas and flavors of red plum, black cherry and raspberry take center stage with accents of natural spice, warm stones, and a touch of exotic sandalwood.  A huge “bang for the buck” Tempranillo to enjoy by itself or with pretty much anything you’d put on the grill.

De Angelis Pecorino Offida DOC 2016 Product #33385 (In Stock)
De Angelis Pecorino Offida DOC 2016 De Angelis Pecorino Offida DOC 2016

An ancient grape variety of the Marche - virtually extinct and recently rediscovered and revived. This is from 50 year-old vines, and it's crisp and clean, with transparent flavors of apple and honeysuckle and a hint of lemon drop and lots of stony minerality.  There's fine amplitude to the flavors and a lovely generosity of fruit mid-palate before the salty, seafood-friendly, minerality comes up at the end.

A fun, great value, Pinot Grigio for solo sipping or matching up with lighter foods.  Nice ripeness and concentration here with a touch of creaminess to the mid-palate texture and than a satisfyingly crisp, fresh, dry finish.  Classic notes of green melon and orchard fruits with accents of ripe citrus show on the nose and palate with fresh pear and apple coming up with air. Crisp, clean, fun and a bargain!

Burgo Viejo Rioja Old Vine Garnacha 2016 Product #33397 (In Stock)

Proving there's more to Rioja than Tempranillo, this 100% Grenache delivers ripe, plump, strawberry fruit and an easygoing, dry, finish. Fun with BBQ and would do nicely with chocolate, too! Chill it a bit for maximum fun.

"Ripe wild raspberry and cassis fruits that are really brambly and expressive. The palate is all raspberry with smooth tannins and gently tangy appeal."  James Suckling 90 points

Dolin Vermouth De Chambery Rouge 375ml Product #27792 (In Stock)
Dolin Vermouth De Chambery Rouge 375ml Dolin Vermouth De Chambery Rouge 375ml

Dolin Vermouth's are pretty much the same today as they were when first introduced in 1821.  Made from white wines and fresh and dried herbs and botanicals from Chambery, they are all complex, fresh, and just as delicious on their own as they are in a complex cocktail.

The red vermouth is frankly sweet but with plenty of bright acidity and bitter herb at the end to keep things fresh.  A touch of cherry/berry fruit and plenty of caramel, bitter herb, and exotic spices hold sway here with citrus peel and herb flavors lingering nicely.

Di Lenardo Pinot Grigio Friuli 2017 Product #33223 (In Stock)

A long-time favorite is better than ever in the outstanding 2017 vintage! It’s wonderfully aromatic, with notes of crisp pear, fresh apple, white flower blossom and a touch of spice jumping from the glass.  The texture is as light, crisp, and refreshing as ever, but the flavors are bold and satisfying with notes of spicy pear, juicy green apple, tangy apricot, and just a hint of almond.

Vina Maitia Aupa Pipeno Maule Valley 2016 Product #33387 (In Stock)
Vina Maitia Aupa Pipeno Maule Valley 2016 Vina Maitia Aupa Pipeno Maule Valley 2016

Mission was the first European wine grape brought to the New World and wines like this show why the grape they call Pais in Chile is on the rise. From 120 year-old vines, this is gulpable fun, but savory (tobacco, earth, slate) rather than fruity.  Chewy and satisfying and a great cookout red!

"The super-tasty and gulpable 2016 Aupa Pipeño is a blend of País with some 30% Carignan (and whatever is found in the old vineyards) from a slightly cooler year. It keeps the style of previous vintages with the bright red fruit and the freshness of short macerations."Wine Advocate 92 points

Gently sparkling with fine fruit: that's the Hillinger Secco, the winery's light pink creation of 100% Pinot Noir grapes. This is easily the best (and most dry) release yet. Pretty in the glass and loaded with aromas and flavors of tangy strawberry, cranberry and cherry fruit.  Juicy and refreshingly dry on the tangy finish, this would be a great brunch or warm afternoon drink!

Bohigas Cava Brut Reserve NV Bohigas Cava Brut Reserve NV

There's an element of class and style here you just don't often find in value-priced bubbles.  Authentic, delicious, and very well-priced.

"A family-owned winery whose origins date back to the 13th century, Fermi Bohigas owns over 240 acres of organically farmed vineyards in Catalunya. Made from a classic blend (for this area) of Xarel-lo, Macabeo and Parellada planted in limestone and clay soils, the wine spends 24 months on its lees before disgorgement. It is an excellent value for consumers looking for alternatives to French Champagne. Lemon/lime, crushed rock and white currant notes are present in this crisp, elegant, refreshing, zesty, dry sparkler. Hints of wheat thins and brioche add complexity. Enjoy this medium-bodied offering over the next 1-2 years."Wine Advocate 90 points

Poggio Alloro Chianti DOCG 2015 Product #31858 (In Stock)
Poggio Alloro Chianti DOCG 2015 Poggio Alloro Chianti DOCG 2015

Here’s proof that great farming and straight-ahead winemaking can deliver fine Chianti – and even finer value! – from outside the Classico zone.  More and more Chianti is either all Sangiovese or Sangiovese strengthened with dollops of Cabernet or Syrah.  Here, a family dedicated to natural, organic, farming turns back to Tuscan tradition to make Chianti from an old-school blend of grapes:  Sangiovese, Canaiolo, Colorino and Ciliegiolo.  Sangiovese gives the wine heft and structure, while Canaiolo adds volume, Colorino deepens the color, and Ciliegiolo – Sangiovese’s genetic parent – soft red cherry fruit.

In the fantastic 2015 vintage, all of this comes together to deliver a ripe, zesty, Chianti that’s very easy to drink.  Ripe black and red cherry fruit forms the wine’s core and gains interest and complexity from accents of crushed violets, red licorice, rich earth, and sweet spice accents.  There’s no oak influence at all, allowing the ripe fruit to shine through while retaining outstanding freshness and just the right touch of structure at the end.  A fine party Chianti, for sure, and one that will be as much fun to drink with a big bowl of pasta as with burgers or rosemary-scented pork.

Justino's Izidro Madeira Fine Rich NV Justino's Izidro Madeira Fine Rich NV

An outstanding in real Madeira for sipping or use in rich sauces or soups.  The light tawny color and heady aromas and flavors of toasted nuts, dark caramel, and burnt orange peel come from barrel aging and exposure to high heat for 3+ months - the process that "Madeirizes" the wine and creates its distinctive tang.  Lightly sweet to balance the zingy acids.
