Bucci Verdicchio 2016      $16.99
Gold-tinged straw. Aromas of apple, anise, minerals an almond jump from the glass. Bright, dense and juicy, offering an archetypal Verdicchio set of flavors (marzipan and orchard fruits) of sneaky concentration and creaminess. The finish is long and suave.

Pietra Dolce Etna Rosso 2014      $20.99
Made from Nerello Mascalese grapes grown on the northern slopes of an active volcano, 2,000 feet above sea level, this Etna Rosso delivers excellently structured red fruit and cherry, with notes of dried spices, cedar and a hint of brimstone on the long finish.

Torre Fosca Brunello Di Montalcino 2010      $45.99
Gamey, smoky, black berry, leather, licorice, savory, tobacco aromas with a bit of resin and garrigue spice. Dry, tight, full palate with light grainy tannins and juicy acidity. Black cherry, earthy, ash, licorice, plum, and tobacco flavors with a touch of leather and chocolate with thyme on the finish.

Vigneti Del Vulture Aglianico 2012      $17.99
The bouquet is ample, with dominant notes of bitter cherry, candied fruit, aromatic herbs and distant hints of vanilla and thyme. The flavor has an exceptionally powerful and imperious personality, with warm elegant undertones of spices and cream. This is a wine with marked minerality and flavor, characteristics that give it extraordinary balance and drinkability.
