Accornero Freisa La Bernardina 2015 Product #31626 (In Stock)
Accornero Freisa La Bernardina  2015 Accornero Freisa La Bernardina  2015

As Antonio Galloni says, Accronero is "one of Piemonte's hidden gems" and this may be their most under-the-radar  wines.  Freisa can be hard and tannic (which is why much of ends up pink and/or sweet and/or fizzy).  Here as a dry red with just a prickle of fizz, it's gorgeous. Wild aromatics of crushed flowers and strawberries lead to flavors of fresh raspberry, strawberry, and berry blossom.  Dry and floral on the finish, it's a great pizza and salami red!

Pecchenino Dolcetto Di Dogliani San Luigi 2016 Product #32388 (In Stock)
Pecchenino Dolcetto Di Dogliani San Luigi 2016 Pecchenino Dolcetto Di Dogliani San Luigi 2016

Another fine vintage for this rock-solid Dolectto that sings with pizza, pasta, and grilled fish. A bit lighter than some releases, but still nicely ripe and fresh.  It's racy and taught with intense tangy raspberry and wild cherry aromas and flavors and just a touch of licorice.  Solid grip on the finish where a hint of herb tea shows through. Really fun and refreshing and great at table, too!

Anna Maria Abbona Barbera 2016 Product #32915 (In Stock)
Anna Maria Abbona Barbera 2016 Anna Maria Abbona Barbera 2016

Piemonte's juicy, fresh, fruit-filled Barbara in it's most fun and direct style!  Picked ripe (not too ripe) and made in tank, this explodes with plum black cherry fruit with hints of balsamic, strawberry and anise.  The mouthwatering acids really lift up the fruit and make it pop on the juicy, fresh, finish, pulling you back for sip after sip. A great pasta/pizza red that you can chill a bit when then weather warms.  Fun!

Boniperti Nebbiolo Carlin Colline Novaresi 2015 Product #32673 (In Stock)
Boniperti Nebbiolo Carlin Colline Novaresi 2015 Boniperti Nebbiolo Carlin Colline Novaresi 2015

Simply insanely delicious Nebbiolo from the "Alto Piemonte" region of Colline Novaresi.  Bold aromas and flavors of strawberry preserves, rose petal, and forest floor with subtle hints of clove and anise.  The texture is fantastic, rich and mouth-coating with a nicely refined bite of silky smooth tannins.  All tank and all refinement, here, with a joyful burst of fruit on the finish. Drink it.

Saracco Moscato d'Asti 2016 Product #32929 (In Stock)
Saracco Moscato d'Asti 2016 Saracco Moscato d'Asti 2016

A fine, fresh, Moscato d'Asti that will impress anyone (and delight them, too!).  Well worth tradinng up to.

"This wine comes to us from one of the finest producers of sweet Moscato that I know of. The Saracco 2016 Moscato d'Asti is a fresh and cheerful wine that is best consumed young when those aromas are so pure and beautiful. The bouquet is redolent of honey, sweet peach and exotic fruit. In the mouth, the wine is creamy and rich. This vintage strikes me as particularly well put together and articulate."Wine Advocate 92 points

"This fragrant dessert wine opens with intense aromas of citrus blossom, white peach and a touch of sage. The elegantly foaming creamy palate offers candied apricot, tangerine zest and ginger. Lively acidity gives it a crisp refreshing finish."Wine Enthusiast 92 points

Barale Fratelli Barbera d'Alba Castle 2016 Product #33090 (In Stock)
Barale Fratelli Barbera d'Alba Castle 2016 Barale Fratelli Barbera d'Alba Castle 2016

This small and very fine Barolo/Barbaresco producer makes an unusually fresh and even elegant Barbera that's perfect for weeknight sipping.  Grown within the commune of Barolo and done entirely in tank, this zesty 2016 is fresh and full of juicy Bing cherry fruit.  Accents of bitter chocolate and ripe citrus pith give this lift and freshness before the wine finishes fresh and easy.  Fantastic pizza/pasta red.

Luigi Baudana Dragon Langhe Bianco 2016 Product #32823 (In Stock)
Luigi Baudana Dragon Langhe Bianco 2016 Luigi Baudana Dragon Langhe Bianco 2016

Let's forget that this is mainly Chardonnay because the experience here is more about "Piemonte" and "Yum" than Chard.  Clean, fresh aromas and loads of citrus and orchard fruit flavors that get lift from a dose of zingy citrus and a hint of slate. An exotic and delicious blend of Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Nascetta and a tiny amount of Riesling for lime zest freshness.

La Capuccina Vespolina Colline Novaresi 2015 Product #32972 (In Stock)

Chef, sommelier and owner of the resort La Capuccina, Gianluca Zanetta knows what great wines is supposed to taste like and what makes it work with fine food.  So he's making some himself, starting with this fine Vespolina in the Fara DOC (no, I can't find it on the map either).  In his first ever vintage, Zanetta made 1,500 bottles of this tangy, fresh, zippy red that reminds you "Vespolina" means "little wasp."  Dark sour cherry fruit with accents of licorice and cut flowers sing out in a medium-bodied wine of fine depth and freshness.

Broglia Gavi Di Gavi La Meirana 2016 Product #33044 (In Stock)

Another great vintage from this benchmark Gavi producer.  Crisp, refreshing, and sneaky complex.

"If you love the linear and profound mineral sensations you get with the unoaked Cortese grape, this is your wine. The 2016 Gavi di Gavi La Meirana is a dry and delineated white wine that sports pristine aromas of honeydew melon, Granny Smith apple and crushed flint or granite. The wine is crisp and streamlined in terms of mouthfeel, but it offers just enough acidity to keep the finish tangy and persistent. This is a beautifully refreshing drink."Wine Advocate 90 points

Accornero Giulin Barbera Del Monferrato 2013 Product #31625 (In Stock)
Accornero Giulin Barbera Del Monferrato 2013 Accornero Giulin Barbera Del Monferrato 2013

Not shy, this ripe and fruit filled Barbera! Enjoy with rich pasta sauces or stews.

"Black cherry, smoke, mocha, lavender, licorice, menthol and dark spices are some of the scents that emerge from Accornero's 2013 Barbera del Monferrato Giulin. This is another wine that boasts notable depth and resonance yet does so while maintaining remarkable balance. This extroverted Barbera should drink well for at least a handful of years."  Vinous (Galloni) 93 points

Carlone Davide Croatina Colline Novaresi 2016 Product #33009 (In Stock)

As Antonio Galloni said a couple of years ago, "Make a note of Davide Carlone. These wines will become super hot as soon as consumers start to discover them." A bit of a story here, one worth drinking. Boca was once a flourishing extension of the Langhe's Nebbiolo vineyards, but by the 1980s, only 3ha of vines remained - one belonging to diesel mechanic Davide Carlone.  Today, Le Piane is the best known estate here, but much of their fruit comes from Davide's slowly growing plantings of Nebbiolo, Vespolino and this tiny slice of ancient Croatina.

This is that wine from 80-100 year-old vines never treated with chemicals and still farmed by hand.  The grape is also known as Bonarda, and it's all about fun, fresh, juicy fruit - a wine to enjoy rather than cogitate over.  Although if you think about it, you'll notice red and blue fruit and accents of licorice and exotic spice.  The fine tannins make this great with food - pretty much anything casual and fun.  Very rare and supremely compelling!

Il Chiosso Ghemme 2008 Product #33125 (In Stock)
Il Chiosso Ghemme 2008 Il Chiosso Ghemme 2008

A beautiful Nebbiolo/Vespolina blend aged to perfection. Great color, perfume and palate here with a silky smooth finish and outstanding length. Just delicious.

"Cherry, licorice, menthol and tar aromas and flavors are matched to a firm, beefy structure in this powerful red. The brisk acidity lends drive as the finish winds down, revealing echoes of fruit, tobacco and mineral. Drink now through 2024."Wine Spectator 90 points

Ar.Pe.Pe. Valtellina Superiore Ultimi Raggi 2006 Product #32205 (In Stock)
Ar.Pe.Pe. Valtellina Superiore Ultimi Raggi 2006 Ar.Pe.Pe. Valtellina Superiore Ultimi Raggi 2006

"The 2006 Valtellina Superiore Sassella Ultimi Raggi is superb. Dark, rich and translucent, the 2006 captures the essence of Nebbiolo here, in Sassella. Sweet dark cherries, menthol, licorice, game and cloves are all woven together in a fabric of pure class. Layered, balsamic and nuanced, the 2006 possesses remarkable power while retaining considerable finesse. All the elements are simply in the right place. Drink this suave, silky Sassella over the next decade-plus. This fruit was harvested very late, on November 15. The 2006 spent 12 days on the skins followed by three years in cask and cement."  Vinous (Galloni) 94 points
