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.

Villa Jolanda Prosecco Product #22192 (In Stock)
Villa Jolanda Prosecco Villa Jolanda Prosecco

Villa Jolanda Prosecco is made from 100% Prosecco grapes grown in the hills north of Treviso.  Grapes are hand-harvested, chilled in the vineyard, and given a low-temperature fermentation in stainless steel tanks to preserve freshness and fruit.  The wine features lovely aromas of white flowers, orchard fruits, and a touch of mineral.  Lightly sparkling with very pretty, small, bubbles, the wine is full of flavor - peach, ripe apple, lemon zest, and a nice mineral streak.  Fruity and crisp, the wine finishes with a touch of mineral and yellow apple.  A fantastic wine to keep on hand for everyday celebrations or to stock up on for Holiday parties.  Delicious!

Bruni Poggio D' Elsa Cabernet Sangiovese 2016 Bruni Poggio D' Elsa Cabernet Sangiovese 2016

A sizzling value in super-Tuscan red blends of 50% Sangiovese - for Italian zest and red fruit - and 50% Cabernet Sauvignon - for richness and dark currant fruit - raised 70% in tank and 30% in large oak cask for spice.  It's loaded with black cherry, plum, and black currant fruit aromas and flavors with a hint of cedar and tobacco for complexity.  Juicy like Chianti, rich Cabernet Sauvignon.  Yum!

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.

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

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.

Fracchia Voulet Malvasia Di Casorzo D'asti 2015 Product #30800 (In Stock)
Fracchia Voulet Malvasia Di Casorzo D'asti 2015 Fracchia Voulet Malvasia Di Casorzo D'asti 2015

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!

Scarpetta Squadra Rosso Terre Siciliane 2015 Product #32022 (In Stock)
Scarpetta Squadra Rosso Terre Siciliane 2015 Scarpetta Squadra Rosso Terre Siciliane 2015

What happens with a bicycle-racing winemaker in Sicily meets a bunch of French Laundry alums who run an elevated casual Italian restaurant in Colorado?  In this case, yumminess ensues!  From vineyards at about 3,000 feet elevation in Western Sicily, this is rich Nero d'Avola (75%) and Nerello Mascallese made in tank - two grapes that only really shine in Sicily!  It really pops with ripe, juicy, red currant and cherry fruit layered with sweet spice and a touch of enlivening herb.  Finishing clean and very fresh, it's a fun solo sipper and a great match for any warm weather food.

La Formica Soave DOCG 2015 La Formica Soave DOCG 2015

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.

Zardini Valpolicella Ripasso Superiore 2014 Product #31448 (In Stock)
Zardini Valpolicella Ripasso Superiore 2014 Zardini Valpolicella Ripasso Superiore 2014

A rarity here:  a nicely priced Ripasso that really does evoke Amarone character in a rich, crowd-pleasing, style.  Black berry, dried fruit, smoke and chocolate aromas and flavors lead the way.  There's good richness and plushness to the texture and a streak of chocolate and dried fruit that starts in the middle and flows on through the powerful, but supple, finish.

Marramiero Montepulciano d'Abruzzo Da Ma 2014 Product #31288 (In Stock)
Marramiero Montepulciano d'Abruzzo Da Ma 2014 Marramiero Montepulciano d'Abruzzo Da Ma 2014

If you’ve enjoyed Villa Medoro’s Tre Bicchieri Montepulciano, then Da Ma is definetly a wine you’ll want to try.  Made from Montepulciano grown on different sites from across the DOC zone, this is a terrific example of how Montepulciano can be both ripe and fresh at the same time.  It’s very fragrant with aromas of smoke, leather, and a touch of something earthy over ripe blackberry fruit.  Then big and mouthfilling and generous flavors of juicy blackberry, raspberry, cherry and even some strawberry and a touch more leather and smoke.  The fine, soft, tannins give this enough structure to stand up to meat but it’s a pretty delectable sipper, too.

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

Damilano Barbera d'Asti 2015 Product #31978 (In Stock)
Damilano Barbera d'Asti 2015 Damilano Barbera d'Asti 2015

Pardon our enthusiasm, but this is SMOKIN' good Barbera! Bursting at the seams with sweet black cherry and raspberry fruit aromas and flavors with just a hint of baking spice from a short stay in French oak.  Finishes with a zesty squirt of lemony acids, flowing cherry fruit and a hint of cola.  Utterly delicious on it's own, with pasta, salami, or pizza. The 90 point rating actually under values this moutwatering, life-affirrming red.  Buy some.

"Vivid and fresh style with raspberry and lemon character. Medium body, tangy finish. Drink now."  James Suckling 90 points

Gavalas Assyrtiko Santorini 2016 Product #31869 (In Stock)
Gavalas Assyrtiko Santorini 2016 Gavalas Assyrtiko Santorini 2016

From the volcanic soils of the island of Santorini, Greece, this Assyirtico has a bit more richness and roundness than most examples, but still plenty of lemon/lime fruit and layers of seashell and salty mineral.  A rich note of lemon curd comes up in the mid-palate for complexity.  A crisp, refreshing, quaffer for everyday sipping, but this will really shine with shellfish or olives!

Centonze Frappato 2015 Product #31882 (In Stock)
Centonze Frappato 2015 Centonze Frappato 2015

An important Sicilian grape most often blended (acknowledged or not) to give Nero d'Avola some freshness. Here you'll find gently roasted strawberry and rhubarb compote with touches of ginger and spice.  Round and mouthfilling but not at all heavy, this is a killer match with cured meats of all kinds.

"Bright red-ruby. Intense strawberry and red cherry aromas and flavors are bright, juicy and multilayered. Rich and dense, delivering lively acidity; a hint of violet lifts the red berry and mineral flavors on the long, bright finish."   Vinous (D'Agata) 91 points

Il Falchetto Brachetto d'Acqui 2016 Il Falchetto Brachetto d'Acqui 2016

If you're a fan of Fracchia Voulet, this is your "special occasion" wine.  And, if you think lightly sparkling, sweet, red wine sounds odd, then you just haven't tried a beauty like this!  A traditional wine in Italy's Piemonte region, this comes from 100% Brachetto grapes, harvested early in the season, soaked for 2 days to extract color, and then fermented in tank to a low alcohol level.  Brachetto's high acidity cuts through the sweet raspberry, strawberry, and rose petal flavors and the note of dark chocolate adds complexity and depth.  It's beautiful in the glass, at once rich and refreshing on the palate, and a perfect wine to sip ice cold by itself or with chocolate-covered strawberries or raspberries.
