2016 Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Avignonesi

2016 Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Avignonesi

Acquired by Virginie Saverys in 2009, Avignonesi has become a leader in biodynamic viticulture in Italy. Since the acquisition and thanks to Virginie’s respect for the ecosystem, her staff and the final consumer, the winery has started producing and crafting organic wines that are truly authentic to their origins yet singular and unique. Our discerning clientèle adored the 2015 vintage of this wine. Still produce of 100% Sangiovese fruit, the 2016 seems to have a bit more punch on the nose and a somewhat fleshier quality with suggestion of macerated small red cherries, bramble, ginestra, new leather and the stone beneath the vineyard floor; if still quite supple in texture, there is a touch more stony underpinning and nerve on the palate with flavors that linger fresh and vivid, leaving the mouth watering, refreshed and ready for more.

2016 Barolo del Comune di Serralunga d'Alba Luigi Pira

2016 Barolo del Comune di Serralunga d'Alba Luigi Pira

Among our favorite of Piemontese producers, Luiga Pira —  always superb quality, always a reasonable price, too, and this is from the excellent, perhaps the finest ever 2016 vintage in Piemonte: lovely translucent ruby to just tawny at the edges in color with classic Barolo aromas suggesting «tar and roses» (more rose than tar today; Andrea suggested baby's breath, instead); this is Nebbiolo informed by all that the Alps have yielded over the millenia to imbue the soils and sub-soils that give the Langhe its unique and wonderful character; aromatically pure, cool, almost minty liquirizia-like quality with some air along with scents of wild mountain berries and Alpine herbs and spice (Henry suspected cinnamon early on; our winebuyer sensed teaberry); almost silken on entry, delightfuly, almost deceivingly so, then showing the solid grip of Nebbiolo, pure, potent and dusty dry, with a wall of intense flavor and Alpine power leaving the palate at once stunned, refreshed and satisfied; Henry noted cool, fresh, fierce but elegant tannins on the long, engaging, warming finish. This is a both a drinker for right now as young wine and (under Diam-30 closure) a keeper, too. Buonissimo Barolo!

2016 Barolo Oddero

2016 Barolo Oddero

The family at Oddero has been doing this a long time — they were one of the very first producers of Barolo to bottle their own wine — and we can confidently say that they haven't lost their touch. This 2016 normale offering is a crystalline expression of the region that simply begs for a rich plate of truffle‑laden pasta and then, certainly, another delicious pull; medium garnet in the glass flecked with bright ruby; rich, spiced red fruit leaps out of the glass before the wine ever reaches the palate with further suggestion of dried morello cherry, red plum and blood orange; cool on the tongue with alpine strawberry leading the charge, melting into a significant earthen, hazelnut and clove‑laden finish; the tannins are surprisingly gentle for a young Barolo, but every component of the structure fits together into a concerto of perfect harmony. - Henry Shytles

2016 Barolo Castiglione Vietti

2016 Barolo Castiglione Vietti

The 2016 Barolo Castiglione is a dazzling wine that will show readers just how compelling this vintage is, even among entry-level wines from top producers. Rich, ample and explosive, the 2016 possesses tremendous richness and resonance from the very first taste. Bright red cherry and red plum fruit, wild flowers, mint, blood orange and spice build as this sumptuous, dramatic Barolo shows all it's got. As always, the Castiglione is built on a core of fruit from Ravera. In 2016, the Castiglione benefits from the inclusion of several new sites, including Ginestra, Mosconi, Bricco Ravera (in Monforte), Le Coste, Costabelle, Meriame, Briccolina and Codana. All I can say is: What a wine! Drink 2024‑2041. Rated 94. - Antonio Galloni, vinous.com February, 2020

2015 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Punta di Villa Roberto Mazzi e Figli

2015 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Punta di Villa Roberto Mazzi e Figli

There is just something special about the house style of Roberto Mazzi. The wines here speak humbly but forthrightly of their origins, avoiding bombast or over ambition, communicating in the process the greater possibilities for clarity in winegrowing and demonstrating, perhaps, the very definition of vinosità — our winebuyer is clearly smitten with the wines. Their 2015 Amarone della Valpolicella is produce of 65% Corvina, 10% Corvinone, 20% Rondinella and 5% Molinara fruit from vines planted to southwest exposures of calcareous/loam/clay soils near the town of Negrar; lovely translucent ruby/garnet in color fading to just tawny at the edges with an alluring and complex come hither slate of aromatics suggestive of summer rainfall on hot stones, dried berries, dried roses, spiced plum and grape pomace; velvety on entry and somehow supremely balanced even at 16% alcohol by volume (this is of course no thing at all for a lover of California Zinfandel or Châteauneuf-du-Pape); potent and concentrated on the palate with fine grained tannins delivering flavors a brilliant reprise of the aromatic slate; warm and vivifying long on the finish; to accompany slow cooked meats, stews, flavorful cheeses, quiet contemplation at the end of the evening …

2016 Chianti Classico Riserva Castello di Monsanto

2016 Chianti Classico Riserva Castello di Monsanto

The 2016 Chianti Classico Riserva is a fabulous wine that punches well above its weight. Dark cherry, plum, licorice, spice, leather, lavender and tobacco all run through this wonderfully nuanced, vibrant Riserva. Already expressive and open, the 2016 will drink well for another 15+ years. Although not quite the value it was a few years ago, Monsanto's Riserva delivers serious quality for the money. Sweet floral notes extend this finish beautifully in this mid-weight, gracious, yet nicely structured Riserva from Monsanto. Drink 2021-2031. Rated 92. Antonio Galloni, vinous.com August, 2019

2013 Chianti Classico Riserva Grosso Sanese Podere Il Palazzino

2013 Chianti Classico Riserva Grosso Sanese Podere Il Palazzino

Podere Il Palazzino is owned by Alessandro and Andrea Sderci and is located in Monti in Chianti, 20km northeast of Siena in the southern part of Chianti Classico. The estate has a total of about 20 hectares (roughly 50 acres), the greater part of which is dedicated to viticulture and a small part to olive groves. Given the small dimensions of the estate working procedures are strictly manual and the soil is cultivated using organic methods. Grosso Sanese originates from a vineyard covering about 2 hectares just below the casa and cantina of the estate. The fairly compact clay/calcareous soils here are composed mainly of alberese and galestro. The vines are pruned in the spurred cordon method, leaving a maximum of six buds per plant. Production is limited to 5,000 to 6,000 liters per hectare for a total production of about 10,000 bottles per year. Fermentation takes place in 5,000-liter oak barrels. The wine is refined in barriques made of Alliers oak, 30% of which are replaced each year. Here it stays for eighteen months before the final blending and bottling. The wine then ages for another six months in bottle before being released for sale. Produce of 100% Sangiovese; deep ruby to crimson at the edges in color; formidable from the get go with a seeming wall of aromatic power forcefully suggesting leather, taut red and blue berry fruits transformed, spices, macchia mediterranea, woodsmoke, pulverized stone and more; at once, powerful on the tongue, potent and warming in essence while mouthwatering and savory long on the finish. In this humble wine taster's opinion, this is all a marker for the very finest of wines.

2016 Chianti Classico Argenina Podere Il Palazzino

2016 Chianti Classico Argenina Podere Il Palazzino

The 2016 Chianti Classico Argenina is fabulous. When so many estates are releasing 2018s and 2017s, Il Palazzino presents a striking Chianti Classico from the great 2016 vintage that overdelivers big time. Dark and imposing, as these wines tend to be, the Argenina possesses remarkable balance and tons of complexity. Dark cherry, gravel, sage, mint and leather bring out the darker side of Sangiovese. The 2016 is intense in the glass, and yet retains so much Sangiovese translucence. Best of all, it is an absolute steal. Give the 2016 a few hours of air and prepare to experience Sangiovese and Chianti Classico in all its majesty. Drink 2021-2036. Rated 93. Antonio Galloni, vinous.com September, 2020

2013 Brunello di Montalcino Eredi Fuligni

2013 Brunello di Montalcino Eredi Fuligni

This wine should not still be in the marketplace, except perhaps as an afterthought, but here we are in the aftermath of one of the most interesting years any of us might have experienced thus far. Fuligni are located on northeastern side of the hill of Montalcino and produce, in our humble opinion, a decidedly raffinato style of Brunello di Montalcino, that is, a fine style of the wine, in the strictest sense of the word. Our wine buyer was introduced more intimately to the wines in place there along with, among other delicacies, an immaculate preparation and provision of ravioli al formaggio slathered most liberally with the in-house produced extra virgin olive oil back in the comparatively simpler and more innocent times of ten years ago. And it remains for him a life in wine-changing experience. Brunello di Montalcino has always been high on our list of priorities among the finest of dry red wines we offer. And Fuligni is high on our list among the finest of Brunello di Montalcino. The 2013 vintage is nearing a plateau of maturity now: medium ruby developing to just tawny at the edges in color with complex and contemplative aromas suggestive of sanguine berries red and blue, saddle leather, savory dried herb and dried flowers on the nose (with some air came notes of liquirizia and teaberry); cool on entry with fine, fine tannins, mouthwatering with an elegant intensity of flavor (both Henry and Ian noted exceptional energy on the palate) and, like all of the finest dry red wines on the planet, engaging in a face to face kind of way and warming, long, long on the finish.

2015 Brunello di Montalcino Caparzo

2015 Brunello di Montalcino Caparzo

One whiff speaks volumes. The vintage of 2015, l'annata solare, if certainly ripe, is a vintage of real consequence in this part of the world. And this 2015 Brunello from Caparzo, their 50th anniversary bottling, is just superb, demonstrating the gravitas of this hallowed appellation what with the "elegant and forceful"☨ aromas so very signature to Sangiovese from Montalcino: burnished leather, tart cherry, Italian blue plum, a parched vineyard floor, macchea mediterannea and much, much more (Henry noted for himself characteristic sun-dried tomato); starting out merely ample, the wine seems to build, expanding on the palate to more potent and full yet still supple and caressing in texture with flavors that follow the aromas straight down the path, both savory and satisfying. And Caparzo has always offered itself up as splendid value among the various superb Brunello di Montalcino that we might propose.

2018 Chianti Rùfina Selvapiana

2018 Chianti Rùfina Selvapiana

Selvapiana in medieval times was one of the watch towers along the river Sieve built with the purpose of protecting the city of Florence on the northeast border. During Renaissance the building was enlarged and transformed into a Villa as a summer residence of noble Florentine families and of the bishops of Florence. In 1827 it was acquired by Michele Giuntini, a successful banker and ancestor of Francesco Giuntini, the present owner and 5th generation to run the property. Since 1997, Selvapiana is run by Francesco’s adopted sons, Federico and Silvia, themselves sons of the former estate manager, Franco Masseti, who worked with Francesco from 1953 to 1990. The property covers 250 hectares in the municipalities of Rùfina, Pontassieve and Pelago, 58 ha of which are planted to vines, 36 ha in olives (Selvapiana produce one of the world's finest extra virgin olive oils). The soils are dry and stony with a well-drained mixture of clay and limestone. Their situation near the Apennines at elevations of 750 to 900 feet allows for greater daytime/nightime swings in temperature and longer hangtime, slower ripening and a certain freshness in the wines. And their Chianti Rùfina is just exceptional. Produce of about 95% Sangiovese with an admixture of Canaiolo, Colorino and Malvasia Nera, lighter translucent garnet/ruby in color than the previous couple of vintages with aromas suggestive of red and blue berries, tanned leather, an herbal macchia mediterranea kind of thing, a hint of almost Burgundian-style reduction like roasted coffee bean and, then, underneath it all, stone; supple on entry, surprisingly so following the last couple of vintages, but silky and pleasing on the tongue, then revealing its structure, its stony underpinning and gentle warmth on the finish.

2018 Rosso di Montalcino Il Poggione

2018 Rosso di Montalcino Il Poggione

The 2018 Rosso di Montalcino is gorgeous, mixing both primary fruit and earth tones to create a wonderfully balanced expression, showing crushed cherries in an array of smoky minerals, dusty soil and sweet herbs. On the palate, I'm finding soft textures, given life by zesty acids and backed by a core of tart blackberry, spiced-orange, and saline-minerality, as a hint of youthful tannin collects on the senses. The finish is medium in length, wonderfully fresh yet focused, as its vibrant fruits give way to lingering florals. The 2018 Rosso is yet another overperformer from Il Poggione. Drink 2020‑2028.

Pasta Pici di Toscana Organic Pastificio Morelli

Pasta Pici di Toscana Organic Pastificio Morelli

Pici (also known as pinci in Montalcino) enjoys a long, ancient history, dating back to the Etruscans. This regional specialty originates from the town of Siena in Tuscany. If you've been to Siena, Montalcino or Montepulciano, chances are you've enjoyed Pici/Pinci. When cooked it has a radius almost that of a standard pencil (cooking time, at almost 20 minutes, is longer than, say, spaghetti but, it is well worth the wait). Serve it with most any sauce or try something more traditional like pici alle briciole (pici with breadcrumbs) or pici all'aglione (pici with tomatoes and garlic). Produce of organic durum semolina wheat. Recipes and more information on Visit Tuscany.

Olio Extra Vergine di Oliva Castello di Ama

Olio Extra Vergine di Oliva Castello di Ama

The hilly area of Ama, located between 450 to 550 meters above sea level, has always been suited to a low production per plant, but is able to generate an extremely fruity, fine and elegant oil, fragrant, with good balance and roundness. This oil is on par with the exquisite wines produced by Castello di Ama. A blend of four olive varieties (Correggiolo, Moraiolo, Frantoio and Leccino) grown in the bucolic countryside of Chianti Classico zone. The olives are hand harvested from an orchard of 10,000 trees. Small batches of olives are pressed the same day as picked, assuring low acidity with dedicated focus on quality over quantity. The unfiltered oil is opaque green in color with a fruity aroma, a strong earthy flavor up front and a lively, peppery finish. A limited quantity of only 8,000 bottles is produced in a typical year.

2019 Rosso di Montalcino Caparzo

2019 Rosso di Montalcino Caparzo

Sangiovese, the primary red wine grape of Tuscany, takes its name from the Latin sanguis Jovis — literally translated as the blood of (the Roman God) Jupiter. Here one begins to sense the namesake of the grape what with fleshy Sangiovese berry aromas suggesting ciliegio e sottobosco; fleshy on the tongue, too, with a ripe, round, mouthfilling richness and gentle dusty tannins and crisp acidity holding it all together on the warming and invigorating finish.

2018 Rosso di Montepulciano Cantina Chiachierra

2018 Rosso di Montepulciano Cantina Chiachierra

The Chiacchiera winery founded in 2010 by the family of Emanuela Mancianti and is located in the hills of Montepulciano in the locality of Cervognano just southeast of the town of Montepulciano itself. This is an area most suitable for the production of both wine and olive oil. The name "Chiacchiera" was chosen by Emanuela’s father Mario to highlight the fact that it’s a family business. Mario was given this nickname (chiacchierone means chatterbox in Italian) because his guests would be enchanted by his conversation, just as a good wine should enchant those who drink it. Emanuela, on the other hand, personally and meticulously follows every phase of the farming and the vineyards, leaving nothing to chance. Produce of 90% Sangiovese, 10% Ciliegiolo and 10% Canaiolo fruit, the wine is a translucent medium ruby fading just at the edges in color; a touch shy on the nose at first then coming to reveal aromas of crisp red cherry, dried wild herbs, dusty earth and eventually a kind of sangue d'uva quality; vibrant on the tongue, announcing itself clearly with lots of building energy and expression, then eventually mouthfilling with gentle fresh tannins carrying a burst of fresh flavor toward the finish.

The vines are trained in both the Guyot and the Pergola Veronese methods. Delicate translucent pale ruby in color, with subtle yet alluringly complex aromas suggesting rose petals, black and red berries, dried cherries and a subtle sense of spice and earth; supple on entry, almost velvety, then demonstrating a certain spine without weight and the gentlest tannins carrying delicate but persistent flavors long on the finish. In a word, vinosità. Splendid value, too.

Produce of 100% Garganega fruit hand-harvested from vines in Marcellise east of Verona and trained in the Pergola veronese fashion, the fruit undergoes temperature-controlled fermentation including selective cryoextraction (a partial freezing of the grapes) that protects them from oxidation and furthers all the eventual wine's aromatic potential; brilliant light yellow gold in color with hyper-fresh aromas that conjure a cool morning harvest of just ripened green grapes with further suggestion of straw, chamomile, peach and citrus (Ian sensed a kind of golden delicious apple); supple and just rounded in texture with all the nerve of fresh acidity keeping everything lively and tantalizing on the tongue.

2019 Pinot Grigio Jesera Collio Venica

2019 Pinot Grigio Jesera Collio Venica

The 2019 Pinot Grigio Jesera has a pretty pink color with copper hues strewn throughout. It’s wonderfully fresh and lifted, showing white strawberry, apple, a dusting of confectioners’ sugar and hints of candied ginger. Silky textures flesh out across the senses, weightier than expected yet perfectly balanced by brisk acids, taking on a more savory persona, as notes of peach and melon give way to zesty exotic spices. There’s an almost-Asian peppery note here coupled with the wine’s inner florals that excites the senses.

2019 Greco di Tufo Nova Serra Mastroberardino

2019 Greco di Tufo Nova Serra Mastroberardino

The Mastroberardino family, leaders in Italian viticulture, are largely responsible for the revival and elevation of Irpinian and Campanian winemaking post WWII. Their efforts ignited a resurgence in quality red and white wine production in all of southern Italy. Working primarily with Campania’s ancient native varietals Fiano, Greco and Aglianico, Mastroberardino has resuscitated would-be extinct wine grapes into world class varieties. The ancient Greco Bianco grape, of which Greco is a clone, was brought to the province of Avellino dai Pelagi in Campania from Thessaly in Greece in the first century BC. Perhaps the most prestigious clone, Greco di Tufo, is named after the town of Tufo in Avellino, where the grape thrives. Tufo refers to the soft, volcanic rock that makes up the subsoil of the region and which imparts a distinctive minerality to the wine. Matroberardino Nova Serra is produce of 100% Greco di Tufo fruit hand-harvested from espalier-trained vines planted to predominantly clay-limestone soils with southeast exposures at elevations of about 450 metres at the Tufo and Petruro Irpino estates. The wine undergoes classic white wine vinification in stainless steel tanks at controlled (read cool) temperatures. Vivid platinum yellow in color with stone-influenced aromas from the start, a kind of rainsoaked chalky limestone, a fleeting fresh herbal quality like chervil or fennel fronds, and then a touch of apricot with air (but, really, it's all about the stone); quite firm on the palate, notable scale and richness but without excess weight and, at once, a delicate if intense minerality that bursts into being on the tongue and stirs the salivary glands in a flourish on the finish. Vino bianco eccezionale!

2018 Etna Rosso Tenuta della Terre Nere

2018 Etna Rosso Tenuta della Terre Nere

Etna Rosso is, for us, a most wonderful if somewhat recent discovery of some, um, magmatude. And Tenuta delle Terre Nere have emerged a favorite producer of the wine among our discerning clientèle. This Etna Rosso, their opening salvo among a number of delicious bottlings, is produced from a preponderance of Nerello Mascalese along with a dash of Nerello Cappuccio fruit from the young vines of the estate cropped at low yields of around 35 hectolitres per hectare and growing on the hillsides of the famous volcano on the eastern edge of the island of Sicily. Absolutely gorgeous translucent deep ruby in color with a certain vinosità what with almost almost fermentive aromas of crushed ripe berries, rose petals and stone; deceptively supple on entry then building in body with a steady crescendo of substantial ripe tannins, power and volcanic warmth on the tongue. While there has been a good deal of comparison of Etna Rosso to Burgundian Pinot Noir, the aromatic profile is really quite different and the silken-textured opening quickly gives way, builds into somewhat more of a southern powerhouse on the tongue, with fine-grained tannins seemingly carrying bursting flavors right on up that hill, potent and long to the finish. Maybe a comparison to a mythical marriage of Chambolle‑Musigny and Châteauneuf‑du‑Pape would be more apt but, then again, no. Etna Rosso is sui generis. One might say it enters on silken slippers, all carefree, island-hopping light on its feet, but goes out with a firm and forceful resolve, as one might reasonably expect of a wine whose vines' dance partner is the stuff of an active volcano.

2018 Etna Rosso Calderara Sottana Tenuta delle Terre Nere

2018 Etna Rosso Calderara Sottana Tenuta delle Terre Nere

Calderara Sottana's soil is easily recognizable at first sight. Of all the crus of the Etna appellation it is by far the stoniest. So much so, that in the most remarkable examples you cannot see the soil for the stones: fist sized, light weight, black volcanic pumice. The word Calderara is reminiscent of "caldera" or "cauldron" probably due to the fact that the black rocks hold the day's heat through part of the night. The terroir in contrada Calderara is originated by lava flows and volcanoclastic deposits related to the effusive and explosive activity of the the Ellittico eruptive center, which dates back from 60,000 to 15,000 years ago. Although very young by geological standards, the soils from the Ellittico eruption are the oldest superficial strata in which one may plant. The reason is simple: millennia of lava flows have buried all older soils, leaving, in fact, only very small and rare parcels of Ellittico soils. On the northern slopes of Etna there are four or five Contrade that have terroir from the Ellittico. Three, however, have mixed soils, blending soil from Ellittico of igneous nature with alluvial soils of sedimentary nature due to the overflowing of the Alcantara river. Only two Contrade out of hundreds and hundreds are "pure" terroir Ellittico: Calderara and San Lorenzo. I wanted to mention this on their labels, so as to facilitate a distinction. The elevation is 600-700 metres. Harvest is sometime in the second to third week of October. Locally the cru has an outstanding reputation. Our Calderara Sottana is a single vineyard wine produced only from vineyards between 50-100 years old. Of all our single vineyard wines it is perhaps the most complete: much like a wide angle lens encompasses the most ample panorama, so Calderara seems to contain and display the widest spectrum of flavors, bouquets, nuances. Floral and spicy, leathery and aromatic, it delivers a wonderful filling sensation on the palate, yet stepping lightly. Don Peppino, whose devotion to Calderara led him to work our vineyards for seventy years, best describes the wines of Calderara: they are «creamy», he says. And he's right. Poultry, red meats, game, pasta, pecorino and bread. - Marco de Grazia, http://www.tenutaterrenere.com/

Olio Extra Vergine di Oliva Tenuta delle Terre Nere

Olio Extra Vergine di Oliva Tenuta delle Terre Nere

There is no such thing as «the best olive oil». And I would never say that ours is the best. I will, however, say that some may and do care for their trees and olives as much as we do, but none more than us. All our trees are organically raised and kept, the soil around them tilled and tilled again; all expertly pruned every two years. The olives are all hand picked, and every day's harvest cold pressed every evening. The oil is then left to naturally decant until February-March and is bottled without filtering. Our volcanic soils confer sweetness and finesse to it, and a lovely bouquet. The cold nights inhibit our fruit's worst enemy, the olive fly. The result is an outstanding Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Costs are very high. We lose a little money every year. Someday soon I hope to break even. It doesn't really matter that much, especially when you see the newly pressed gold-green olive oil gushing free from the press. Some things just have to be done. - Marco de Grazia, paraphrased from http://www.tenutaterrenere.com/

2016 Barbaresco Gaja

2016 Barbaresco Gaja

Gaja's 2016 Barbaresco is positively stellar. A wine of poise and grace, the 2016 has so much to offer. Expressive spice and floral notes open up first, but what really stands out is the wine's nuance and delineation. There is a sense of translucency to the 2016 that is impossible to miss. Sweet red cherry, mint, cinnamon and rose petal develop in the glass, adding further shades of nuance. Quite simply, the 2016 is one of the very finest Gaja Barbarescos in recent memory. This is such a gorgeous wine. Don't miss it. Drink 2026-2041. Rated 96. - Antonio Galloni, vinous.com November, 2019

2018 Pinot Bianco Vigneti delle Dolomiti Alois Lageder

2018 Pinot Bianco Vigneti delle Dolomiti Alois Lageder

From the Terra Alpina, this special land of contrasts in northern Italy between the Alps and the Mediterranean Sea. Limpid pale yellow gold in color with Alpine fresh aromas suggesting brisk pure clean mountain air, crisp apple, straw, fiori bianchi, and a kind of 'easy like Sunday morning' quality; easy on the tongue, too, with lovely interplay between ripe fruit and gentle fresh acidity, this is a quaff among quaffs; pure, flavorful, fresh and clean on the finish as the Alpine summer days are long.

2019 Orvieto Classico Superiore Terre Vineate Palazzone

2019 Orvieto Classico Superiore Terre Vineate Palazzone

"Unquestionably the number one small estate of Orvieto" according to Stephen Tanzer, Palazzone produces delicious white wines from indigenous grape varietals of Umbria, balancing irresistable fruit aromas and flavors with an oh-so stony backdrop and nerve; produce of 50% Procanico, 30% Grechetto and 20% of Verdello, Drupeggio and Malvasia, vinified in stainless steel to keep things fresh; medium-bodied, supremely-balanced white wine with aromas that speak clearly of cool of the morning harvest fresh grapes and notions of floral honey, beeswax and something like hazelnut and elderflower and, yet again, stone; at once, just ample and round, crisp and dusty, citrusy dry and alive with fresh grapey flavor. C'mon downtown 'n get yourself some of this delicious wine!

2019 Pinot Grigio Ramato Vignarco Umbria Palazzone

2019 Pinot Grigio Ramato Vignarco Umbria Palazzone

'Okay, finally,' sez our wizening wine buyer, 'a way to drink an orange wine and actually have fun doing it.' Actually, the word ramato translates directly as auburn, but being as we are here in Austin, Texas, we're gonna take a bit different a direction. This is, to be sure, Pinot Grigio from Orvieto, Umbria, Italia, an address just an hour or so's drive south and east of Montalcino in Toscana. Not everyone knows that Pinot Grigio is not actually a green grape for making only white wines. The skins of Pinot Grigio have color. A kind of greyish purple color. And what to do if you really wanted Procanico and Grecchetto and the harvesters brought you this northerner called Pinot Grigio? Make some 'pink' wine, of course! Although this is actually less pink and more a burnt orange in color, if a rather glistening burnt orange with fresh cool of the morning giddy grapey aromas beckoning along with suggestion of citrus (more like tangerine), stone fruits and cool fresh melon; fresh, vibrant, almost thirst quenching, mouthwatering quality on the tongue with a delicate minerality and all the while so pleasingly plump and round. Okay, UTers (and all the rest of you), this is it! Burnt orange wine, without the burn. Show your colors!

2018 Orvieto Classico Superiore San Giovanni Castello della Sala Marchesi Antinori

2019 Orvieto Classico Superiore San Giovanni Castello della Sala Marchesi Antinori

Produce of Grechetto, Procanico, Pinot Blanc and Viognier from the vineyards of the Marchesi Antinori estate of Castello della Sala in Orvieto, Umbria in central Italy, about an hour's drive southeast from Montalcino, Toscana. Pale straw yellow in color with glints of green in color; aromas suggesting floral, citrus and pesca della vigna, at last it is, of course, mineral and grape; spherical in shape, this is a wine that demonstrates a high pedigree what with its brilliant balance, ripe fruit and restraint, holding shape long on the tongue, this is a tactile wine, both supple and persistent, poised, delicious and fresh, almost irresistible — no, it surely is irresistible. Sì, sì, sì!

2019 Pinot Grigio Alto Adige Valle Isarco Abbazia di Novacella

2019 Pinot Grigio Alto Adige Valle Isarco Abbazia di Novacella

From 100% Pinot Grigio fruit grown in the Bressanone valley basin at elevations of 600m-900m, well on your way into the Alps from Bolzano and what is one of the loveliest vineyard situations one might imagine (there is even a ski area above the town of Bressanone); pale golden yellow with glints of green in color; brisk, mountain fresh aromatics suggest taut cool of the morning grapes, pine, mint, orchard fruits, hazelnut (knowing where this wine is grown really just stirs the imagination); crisp, vibrant and fresh on the tongue yet ample in body, supple and satisfying with a lovely Alpine intensity of flavor that lasts.

$19.99 the bottle  $203.88 the case



2019 Colterenzio Chardonnay Altkirch Alto Adige

2019 Colterenzio Chardonnay Altkirch Alto Adige

Produce of 100% Chardonnay from deep sandy soils on gravelly deposits in the otherworldly gorgeous Südtirol-Alto Adige of northeastern Italia. Temperature-controlled (read cool) fermentation in stainless-steel tanks (read unoaked), the new wine subsequently matures for several months on the fine lees. The result is a brilliant, shimmering lemon yellow gold with glints of green in color; ultra-fresh aromas suggestive of vines in flower, flesh and skin of fresh green apple, melon and mango; supple and nicely rounded on the tongue with just a hint of citrus and saline mineral tang; both satisfying and refreshing, and all for a price so gulpably easy on the pocketbook.

2017 Aia Vecchia Lagone Toscana Rosso

2017 Aia Vecchia Lagone Toscana Rosso

A lovely if modestly modern claret-inspired Tuscan red wine from La California, as it is called there on the Tuscan coast near Bolgheri and Magliano. Produce of 60% Merlot along with an admixture of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, the wine undergoes a temperature-controlled fermentation, manual punch-downs and pump-overs. It is aged one year in barrique and a minimum of six months in bottle before release. Lovely ruby red in color with typical claret aromas suggesting ripe cherries, wild berries, a hint of spice, a scent of vanilla from barrel aging, but with a telltale and toothsome seaside saline quality; medium-bodied on the palate with a gentle richness and structure and long, smooth finish. Superb value, too!
