De Angelis Falerio DOC Bianco 2015 Product #31078 (In Stock)
De Angelis Falerio DOC Bianco 2015 De Angelis Falerio DOC Bianco 2015

Best vintage yet for this fresh, fruit-filled, Italian white. 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.

Great aromas of pear, peach, and lime with a salty scent of the sea in the background.    On the palate, there's loads of ripe, creamy peach, apple, pear 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.  Fantastic value.

Falesco Vitiano Rosso Umbria 2014 Product #32395 (In Stock)
Falesco Vitiano Rosso Umbria 2014 Falesco Vitiano Rosso Umbria 2014

An Italian blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Sangiovese that would be a $20 "super-Tuscan" - if only it didn't come from neighboring Umbria!  This is rich and round with dark cherry and red currant fruit, moderate acidity and nicely chewy tannins.  Turns spicier and smoother with air, making this a great choice for everything from cookouts to spaghetti dinners to cool weather parties.

"A soft and velvety texture red with orange peel, chocolate and plum aromas and flavors. Medium to full body, fresh acidity and a flavorful finish. Subtle at the same time. This is always one of Italy's excellent value reds."  James Suckling 91 points

Kellerei Kaltern Caldaro Schiava 2015 Product #30795 (In Stock)
Kellerei Kaltern Caldaro Schiava  2015 Kellerei Kaltern Caldaro Schiava  2015

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.  A tad more rich and round in the warm 2015 harvest, but still a refreshingly great value!

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.

When in Rome...drink what Romans drink!  Here's a great casual Italian white sipper with just a touch more going on then you'd expect.  It's a blend of 50% Malvasia di Candia, 30% Malvasia del Lazio and 20% Trebbiano made in tank.  Clean and crisp aromas and flavors featuring juicy lemon fruit with a fennel frond herbal note and twist of lemon peel on the finish.  Great with any kind of seafood or just to sip while gazing out at the Piazza Navona.

You may never have heard of Ruche, but if you like aromatic grapes like Pinot Noir, and are searching for something that will sing with everything from Indian food to pizza, you've found your new best friend.  A traditional grape from Italy's Piedmont region, this is a soft, easygoing red with intriguing aromas of cherry, plum, lavendar, and floral notes.  Delicious and unique.

Volpetti Cesanese 2015 Product #31710 (In Stock)
Volpetti Cesanese 2015 Volpetti Cesanese 2015

Even bigger, bolder, more fruit filled, and even more delicious than before.  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!

Cantele Salice Salentino Riserva 2014 Product #32686 (In Stock)
Cantele Salice Salentino Riserva 2014 Cantele Salice Salentino Riserva 2014

Another great vintage for this long-time Italian value!

"The 2014 Salice Salentino Riserva is a heavy and concentrated wine with prune, raisin and blackberry jelly. The wine is hearty and dense with sweet flavors on the finish that are interwoven tightly with equally savory characteristics. Despite those big bones, this wine from Cantele ultimately offers good balance and a very clean and correct drinking style. It a great value, too."Wine Advocate 89 points

La Mondianese Grignolino d' Asti 2015 Product #31635 (In Stock)
La Mondianese Grignolino d' Asti 2015 La Mondianese Grignolino d' Asti 2015

What is Grignolino?  A red wine grape from Piemonte, Italy, where the root name – grignole – means “many pips”, referring to the many seeds found in this rarely seen grape.  It’s prone to being tough and tannic, but not here.  Diane thought this tasted like “Pinot Noir and Sangiovese had a baby”, and there's definitely something to that.  In any event, it’s a lightly colored and textured wine that opens with aromas of sweet cherry, red berries, and a hint of lavender.  In the mouth the fruit is bright and juicy and a touch of earthiness comes up at the end.  Light enough to drink with fish or to take a chill for solo sipping.

Argillae Grechetto Umbria 2016 Product #32544 (In Stock)
Argillae Grechetto Umbria 2016 Argillae Grechetto Umbria 2016

Grechetto is best known as a (all too small) part of Umbria's Orvieto, but it's so delicious that it's well worth showcasing on its own!  This is 100% Grechetto done in tank and it really bursts with fresh, vibrant, aromas of stone fruit with subtle almond accents.  On the palate it's full of stone fruit and passion fruit flavors with a sophisticated texture and crisp, lemon/peach and mineral finish. Sure it's fun to sip and will shine with all kinds of seafood, but try it with turkey, grilled veggies and - especially - linguini with clam sauce!

Boschis Francesco Grignolino Piemonte 2016 Product #32582 (In Stock)
Boschis Francesco Grignolino Piemonte 2016 Boschis Francesco Grignolino Piemonte 2016

This top Dogliani Dolcetto producer makes a tiny bit of light, fresh, utterly delicious Grignolino - and it's supreme fun in 2016!  The grape is native to Piemonte and gets its name from the many seeds - to control all that seed tannin, Grignolino is always fermented gently and with little color extraction.  Super-ripe cherry and strawberry fruit at the core with hints of cranberry and licorice and a supple, grippy, finish. A great treat with holiday meals - try it for Christmas and Thanksgiving!

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.

Pink wine is good. Fizzy wine is good.  Pink, fizzy, wine?  This one, at least, is really, really, good! Pretty in the glass with vibrant light pink color and fine bubbles.  Then creamy and round on the palate with cranberry and strawberry fruit and a little hint of fresh flowers and chalky stone.  Finishes dry and crisp.  A great party and celebration wine to share with a crowd.

Fracchia Voulet Malvasia Di Casorzo D'asti 2016 Product #32271 (In Stock)

This delicious frizzante wine is a rare version of red Malvasia, made with a touch of sweetness and a light, frothy, sparkle. As The Washington Post’s Dave McIntyre said about the 2011, “This delightful little frizzante red from Piedmont is a cousin to Brachetto d’Acqui, and equal to Brachetto in its affinity for chocolate." As always, the lightly sweet red raspberry and strawberry fruit is a delight!

Di Lenardo Ronco Nole 2015 Product #32302 (In Stock)
Di Lenardo Ronco Nole 2015 Di Lenardo Ronco Nole 2015

The name of this Italian red blend is a joke - many wineries in the relatively flat Friuli region like to claim their wine is from this hill ("Ronco") or that.  "No Hill" is Max di Lenardo's blend of 50% Merlot, 25% Cabernet and 25% Refosco from the Friuli plains aged in American oak.  It's a spicy, peppery, wine with rich dark fruit and accents of vanilla and mocha.  Fresh enough to serve solo and even better with something grilled.

The "Superiore" designation has to do with place and farming, but we'd award a "superior" rating to the wine you'll find in your glass!  This is a classy, stylish, Prosecco with a creamy, rich, texture and soft, easy, bubbles.  Aromas and flavors of wisteria, ripe yellow pear, lemon pulp and just a hint of honeysuckle draw you in and the lingering citrus/herb flavors and crisp, clean, finish will keep you coming back for more.  Fun, festive and delicious.

A simply fantastic Saove from 100% estate-grown Garganega, Soave’s best grape, hand harvested and vinified in temperature-controlled stainless steel.  It's loaded with ripe lemon, green melon, and chamomile aromas and flavors with just a hint of Soave's traditional bitter almond at the end.  Mouthfilling but super fresh with a very long finish leaving lemon, green melon, and almond flavors lingering.  Highly recommended as a terrific, delicious, value.

Zibibbo - fun to say, fun to drink!  It's a parent of Muscat and one of the oldest genetically unmodified vines still in existence. In Sicily's warm vineyards it creates a wonderfully aromatic, refreshing, and dry wine that you'll love for sipping and serving at table.

"Delicate nuances of camphor and mint complicate peach tea aromas. Rich and dense, offering precise flavors of lime, green fig and sage, nicely framed by zingy acidity. Finishes peppery and long, and incredibly saline; this is almost salty."  Vinous (d'Agata) 90 points
