2012 Santa Caterina “Sori di Giul” Freisa d’Asti
On Sale $44.99
In Piedmont a wine place named Sorì stands for the vineyards better exposed to the sun, those helped by the climate. Giul is Giulia Alleva’s family nickname and she loves to describe this wine as a “Feminine Nebbiolo”. A famous Freisa, rich in aroma and structure, which had been lost over the years. The original vineyard is the Mossetti estate: its soil is a mix of clay and sand near the surface with root systems that manage to balance out the plant and enrich the phenolic ripeness of the grapes.

2016 Mauro Molino Barbera d’Alba

This is supple and harmonious, its blackberry and black cherry flavors building to a lingering finish. Accents of violet and spice add interest. Drink now.

2013 Mauro Molino Barolo DOCG
On Sale $42.99
Aromas of rose petals, green tea and strawberries. Medium body, ultra-fine tannins and a flavorful finish. Better in 2018.
92 Points, James Suckling
This blood-orange Amara, made in Sicily from oranges grown near Mt. Etna, is simply gorgeous. With dominant orange notes and less bitterness than a traditional Amaro, it is versatile and works well in cocktails as a complex and nuanced replacement for orange liqueur or triple sec. It also drinks beautifully as an after-dinner digestivo.
