1. G.D. Vajra Rosato Piedmont 2018

    G.D. Vajra Rosato Piedmont 2018

    60% Nebbiolo, 20% Barbera, 20% Dolcetto. From one of our favorite Barolo producers comes this tasty rosé. It’s an unusual blend of Piemonte’s most important black grapes, for fresh, engaging aromas of strawberries, cherries, pomegranates, and orange blossom, lifted by vibrant acidity which makes this rosé especially refreshing. A very approachable rosé with a serious, thoughtful edge. Learn More
  2. Roccolo Grassi Amarone Recioto 2015

    Roccolo Grassi Amarone Recioto 2015

    Recioto is one of the great Italian sweet wines. The Roccolo Grassi is made from 60% Corvina, 15% Corvinone, 15% Rondinella, and 10% Croatina and it is sourced from a 4 hectare parcel of 40 year old vines. The 150 days of drying the grapes before fermentation gives the wine complex flavors of dried cherry, ripe plum, blackberry, meat, and tobacco. The palate is heavy, yet clean and well balanced. Sweet, but never cloying Learn More
  3. Tenuta Santa Maria Valpolicella Classico Superiore 2016

    Tenuta Santa Maria Valpolicella Classico Superiore 2016

    Old Valpolicella/Soave family dating back to the 1500s producing Valpolicella of a rare quality. The grapes are low-yielding Corvina (75%), Corvinone (15%), and Rondinella (10%), aged in large oak barrels for 14 months. The result is a quietly serious wine that’s bright and floral on the nose with aromas of red cherries and strawberries followed by a great balance between fresh acidty and a gripping tannin structure. Best Valpolicella we’ve had in some time. Learn More
  4. Filli Cigliuti "Vigna Serraboella" Barbera d'Alba 2016

    Filli Cigliuti "Vigna Serraboella" Barbera d'Alba 2016

    Barbera comes in many guises, from light and easy-drinking to concentrated and serious. This is very much the latter category. It comes from 30 to 55-year-old vines planted on Serraboella, a hillside slope located east of Neive in Barbaresco. It’s then aged in used 800L barrels for 18 months to produce a wine that’s fruity and meaty with intense aromas of spices and red fruits followed by high acidity and soft, finely textured tannins. A serious, food-friendly wine. Learn More
  5. Idlewild "The Bird" Red 2017

    Idlewild "The Bird" Red 2017

    60% Dolcetto, 35% Barbera, 5% Nebbiolo. This “house red” is an homage to the light, fresh, food-friendly wines drunk in Italy. Fermentation starts with carbonic maceration for a smooth fruitiness, then the grapes are trodden by foot for a regular fermentation leading to a savory backbone. Subtle, complex aromas of wild strawberries, black cherries, dried herbs, and roses are finished with great acidity and firm tannins. Fun with a serious edge. Learn More
