Select Brands

Principe Pallavicini Poggio Verde Frascati Superiore 2015 $14.99
Bright, brilliant straw yellow. Broad and intense nose with notes of blossoms and tropical fruit. Full, soft palate with lingering aftertaste.

Montonale Lugana 2015 $19.99
Great easy drinking white, good citrus notes and slight minerality on the nose. Palate was ripe orange citrus with slight white peach and light pineapple. Medium plus acid, medium body and long finish.

Terredora Dipaolo Rosato 2015 $14.99
Bright salmon pink in the glass, Terredora Dipaolo’s Rosaenovae projects earthy, dusty aromas of red currants, fennel and cherry skin. Fresh on the palate, notes of ripe figs mingle with oranges, dried herbs and a dusty soil expression. This wine alternates waves of licorice-tinged fig and plum fruit, spicy volcanic minerals, cinnamon and dried rose petals. The structure of the wine ensures that it will be delicious for late summer enjoyment and will easily carry you through the coming year.

Produtorri Del Barbaresco Barbaresco 2012 $ 34.99

A graceful and detailed red, marked by ripe cherry, strawberry, floral and tar flavors, with the fruit intensity persisting on the finish, showing excellent length. This is well-integrated and just needs time for the tannins to soften. Best from 2018 through 2030. WS-93pts
