Featured Wines

2017 Cantina Gulino ‘Pretiosa’ Albanello, Sicily
Regularly $21.99, Tasting Price $18.69
Pretiosa translates to precious which is very accurate for this wine. The Gulino family bottles the only monocarietal version of this wine in Sicily. They are the protectors of this grape varietal after it nearly disappeared 20 years ago. This wine has Chardonnay like richness, due to a late harvest, that pairs with high acid and incredible minerality. Try this with chicken braised in white wine and olives.

2016 Reale Aliseo Bianco, Costa d’Amalfi
Regularly $24.99, Tasting Price $20.99
From 100 plus year old vines on the Amalfi coast in the mountain village of Tramonti. Herbaceous, lemony lime and complex. This wine is made for linguine alla vongole.

2015 Cantine Mucci ‘Valentino’ Montepulciano, Abruzzo
Regularly $19.99, Tasting Price $16.99
This is a stainless steel aged Montepulciano that comes from young vines. This wine has plenty of bright red fruit and drinks very smooth and fresh. This is a delicious red wine for pizza and pasta.

2014 Fattoria del Pino- Rosso di Montalcino, Tuscany
Regularly $29.99, Tasting Price $25.49
Fattoria del Pino one of the most exciting new projects in Montalcino from young winemaker Jessica Pellegrini. She does everything by hand, including bottling. Her Rosso is tannic but incredibly bright and fresh as it is aged in very large oak barrels. There is no better zip code for steak wine than Montalcino.

2013 Tenuta Chevalier Valpolicella Ripasso, Veneto
Regularly $29.99, Tasting Price $25.49
A Ripasso that drinks like an Amarone with power and structure. Plenty of prunes, earthy notes and tobacco! Great Italian alternative to full bodied American wines for barbecue.
