Cantele Salice Salentino Riserva 2013 Product #31614 (In Stock)
Cantele Salice Salentino Riserva 2013 Cantele Salice Salentino Riserva 2013

Best vintage yet for this long-time southern Italian favorite!

"The Cantele 2013 Salice Salentino Riserva shows a greater level of depth and finesse compared to many of its peers. The wine is packed tight with blackberry fruit, with Maraschino cherry, plum and prune in abundance. The wine is chewy and rich for sure, but it also provides an authentic and generous portrait of a red wine from Puglia. A spicy beef or lamb dish would make the perfect pairing partner."Wine Advocate 90 points

Diomede Aglianico Campania 2014 Product #31114 (In Stock)
Diomede Aglianico Campania 2014 Diomede Aglianico Campania 2014

While Aglianico can be pretty serious, it can also be fruit-filled and fun just like it is here!  Ripe raspberry and Bing cherry fruit is layered with clove, cracked pepper and a touch of earth.  The firm tannins are ripe and melt away easily, making this a fantastic pizza and salumi red and a fine introduction to this sometimes formidable Campania grape. Juicy, fruit-filled fun!

Cantine Farro Falanghina 2016 Product #32215 (In Stock)

This is 100% Falanghina, the best white grape of Southern Italy. From first aromas through the lingering finish, the region’s volcanic soils speak clearly here.  Aromas of tangy pineapple, peach, apricot, fresh straw and white flowers lead to tangy, brisk, flavors of stone fruit, lemon curd, and green peach.   A fantastic food wine to pair with pasta primavera, or even fennel-laced Italian sausages.

Statti Gaglioppo Calabria 2015 Product #31874 (In Stock)
Statti Gaglioppo Calabria 2015 Statti Gaglioppo Calabria 2015

A touch richer and deeper in 2015, but still about as much fun as you can find under cork. A light chill is best for this rich but refreshing red.

"Earthy and autumnal tones rise to the top of the 2015 Gaglioppo. This is a raw and rustic wine that marches to the beat of its own drum. Its personality and genuine character are very reflective of what Gaglioppo typically offers. Dark fruit and dried cherry are followed by olive, tar and forest bramble. This an easy-drinking red for near-term consumption."Wine Advocate 88 points

d'Angelo Sacravite Aglianico Basilicata Rosso IGT 2014 Product #31777 (In Stock)
d'Angelo Sacravite Aglianico Basilicata Rosso IGT 2014 d'Angelo Sacravite Aglianico Basilicata Rosso IGT 2014

A juicy, fresh, and surprisingly easy-drinkinng Aglianico!   As Wine Advocate says, the use of wood here is artful, softening tannins without adding any oak flavor.  Delicious stuff to enjoy with sausages, roasted peppers, or any hearty food.

"D'Angelo has managed to tame the rough and rustic nature of Aglianico from Basilicata. The use of oak seems to be the key to their success. The 2014 Sacravite, which sees five months in large oak cask, is a prime example. The tannins and the forceful nature of the bouquet have been very nicely managed here. Soft layers of dark cherry, dried blackberry, spice, leather and tar are presented with noticeable intensity. The wine offers a satisfying burst of earthiness and savory spice at the back. This vintage is a little weaker, but the wine delivers above-average results nonetheless. Sacravite is a great value buy."Wine Advocate 89 points

d'Angelo Aglianico del Vulture 2013 Product #31684 (In Stock)
d'Angelo Aglianico del Vulture 2013 d'Angelo Aglianico del Vulture 2013

A textbook example of Aglianico anchored in tradition but with enough modernity to avoid palate-shredding toughness.  18 months in large, neutral, wood preserves the dark red cherry and wild berry fruit while giving just a hint of fresh leather, herb and earthy tar.  As always with Aglianico, there's plenty of acidity and tannin, but both are well integrated and the tannins are powdery and supple.  A great match for sausages or lamb with olives or roasted peppers!

""An elegant red, with sleek tannins and fresh acidity. A delicate skein of spice unravels through the flavors of raspberry p√Ęte de fruit, thyme, mineral and dried fig. Drink now through 2021. 650 cases made."Wine Spectator 90 points

Terredora Di Paolo Fiano Di Avellino 2014 Product #30729 (In Stock)
Terredora Di Paolo Fiano Di Avellino 2014 Terredora Di Paolo Fiano Di Avellino 2014

Terredora’s “basic” wine is a benchmark for classically styled Fiano, with loads of tropical fruit and a rich, full-bodied, texture balanced by mouthwatering acidity and laser-like focus.  Grapes harvested in the first 10 days of October ferment and age in steel including a few months on the lees.  The aromas and flavors are captivating if hard to describe:  flowers, pear, apricot, citrus, acacia, herb honey and toasted hazelnut notes weave in and out.  Brilliant stuff!

"Rich aromas of apple, herbs and flint. Very fresh and saline, showing a juicy mouthfeel and sneaky concentration to its stone fruit and herb flavors. Finishes with noteworthy persistence."   Vinous (D'Agata) 90+ points

d'Angelo Serra Delle Querce 2013 Product #31968 (In Stock)
d'Angelo Serra Delle Querce 2013 d'Angelo Serra Delle Querce 2013

With a nod to "Super-Tuscan" wines, we might call this a "Super-Basilicata" red - if anyone knew where that is!  At the top of the arch of Italy's boot, this blends the region's best red grape, Aglianico, with 50% Merlot shows the benefit of aging in French oak.  Sexy and round with dark, rich, black fruit framed by notes of coffee, smoke, chocolate and spice. The sweet currant and raspberry fruit gets a lift from juicy Italian acids and flows on through the supple, smooth, finish.
