Your host is Emily Welch of 55 Degrees Distribution.

Pasquale Pelissero Barbaresco 2010                   $26.99
Mid ruby with orange tinges showing herbal notes and a touch of classic minerality. This wine is compact and will show its potential from 2015 to 2024.  Jancis Robinson Purple Pages, 15.5/20 pts  This estate is a member of a newly formed consortium of Langhe producers called "Biotipicita," founded by producers who all adhere to the "lotta integrata," an Italian regulation governing sustainable farming methods.

Bodegas Farina Spanish Sons Toro 2010                   $13.99
Bright cherry and dark berry fruit aromas along with licorice and vanilla.  On the palate are subtle notes of violet. This wine is medium bodied and versatile.   Its soft tannins make it a great every day drinker

Charles Gonnet Chignin Savoie 2012                $15.99
With an incredibly clear color, this gem from the French Alps near the Swiss border is very pure, showing a melon rind edge to the green almond and light pear notes with a refreshing finish.  100% Jacquere grape.   Importer’s Notes

Jean-Max Roger Sancerre Rouge 2009             $24.99
Our red Sancerre cuvée is produced from grapes grown on the estate’s oldest vines. The wine is aged in barrels for a minimum of 12 months to give the wine more intense concentration, a more complex structure and more focused tannins. It is the perfect accompaniment to red meats and game and may be cellared for 10 years or more.  100% Pinot Noir.   Winemaker’s Notes
