Poggio Alloro Vernaccia Di San Gimignano 2015 Product #31400 (In Stock)
Poggio Alloro Vernaccia Di San Gimignano 2015 Poggio Alloro Vernaccia Di San Gimignano 2015

We’ve been impressed by the Fioroni family’s last few Vernaccia releases, but the just arrived 2015 takes the deliciousness to new heights even as the price goes down! Since at least 1276, Tuscany’s 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.

This is a classic example, made from 100% Organic grapes harvested at optimum ripeness and allowed to become wine slowly, naturally, in neutral tank.  It’s wonderfully expressive on the nose, with generous aromas of peach, apricot, green apple, and herby wildflower.  Take a sip and you’ll love how it fills up your mouth with rich flavors of mid-summer stone fruit (peach, apricot, nectarine), Granny Smith apple, and tangerine zest.  The lip-smacking fresh finish makes this a great anytime sipper, but it will shine most brightly at table with fish, poultry, and cheese.  Even better than the 90 point, Wine Enthusiast Editors’ Choice version from last year!

Poggio Alloro Vernaccia Nicchiaio 2015 Product #31024 (In Stock)
Poggio Alloro Vernaccia Nicchiaio 2015 Poggio Alloro Vernaccia Nicchiaio 2015

From vineyards in the shadow of the towers of San Gimignano, this is Vernacchia harvested a bit later and given more time on the lees in barrel than Poggio Alloro's "regular" bottling.  Rich, nutty, aromas of acacia flower and stone fruit lead to a palate at once rich and bright.  Layered flavors of sweet pear, apricot, toasted nut and a hint of herb honey are lifted by juicy acids and linger with a hint of mineral across a long, building, finish.

Note: this is a special-order wine. Filling orders for this wine typically takes 2-3 days.

Bardellini Vermentino U Munte 2015 Product #32279 (In Stock)
Bardellini Vermentino U Munte 2015 Bardellini Vermentino U Munte 2015

Vermentino needs an unusual combination of conditions to be interesting.  It needs plenty of warmth and sunshine to ripen, but also cool nights to lock in acidity and stay fresh.  That's exactly what Colle dei Bardellini's vineyards in Liguria, east of Monaco and near the Cinque Terre deliver.  From 1,000 feet above sea level, this explodes with green fruit, lime zest, and lots of salty, seafood-friendly, minerality.  Refreshing, lip-smacking, fun!

Poggio Alloro Vin Santo Del Chianti 375ml 2010 Product #30376 (In Stock)
Poggio Alloro Vin Santo Del Chianti 375ml 2010 Poggio Alloro Vin Santo Del Chianti 375ml 2010

A traditional dessert wine style from just outside the walled city of San Gimignano, Tuscany.  Trebbiano, Malvasia, and San Colombano grapes are dried and then aged five years in small barrels (traditionally chestnut) to give it a distinctive nutty, resinous aroma and flavor. Great with the traditional accompaniment of biscotti.
