2015 Antonutti Sauvignon, Friuli
On Sale $16.99
Aroma and taste coincide in this fresh and citrus wine that has a golden-yellow color, a melon flavor and a golden-yellow label, with accents and hints recalling vegetal sensations.
Winery Notes

2015 Antonutti Pinot Grigio, Friuli
On Sale $16.99
A sky-blue label for the freshness of this wine, marked by light flowery notes to start, followed by strong fruity sensations. Yellow, in order to reflect the straw-yellow highlights that herald the scent of yellow broom.
Winery Notes

2015 Antonutti Refosco dal Peduncolo Rosso, Friuli
On Sale $16.99
The red label represents the deep ruby-red color of this wine, with a warm nose marked by wild blackberry, Marasca cherry, violet and clove flavors.
Winery Notes

2012 Pianirossi Montecucco Sangiovese “Sidus,” Tuscany
On Sale $17.99
Lots of dried-nut, sliced-chocolate and berry character on the nose and palate. Full body, firm tannins and a ripe, juicy finish. Lots going on here. One of the best wines of the Montecucco appellation. Drink after 2016.
92 Points, James Suckling

2013 Biondi-Santi Rosso di Montalcino
On Sale $49.99
The Rosso di Montalcino comes from the younger Sangiovese-Grosso-vineyards (between 5 and 10 years old) of the Il Greppo Estate. It also ages for 12 month in Slavonian oak casks and it is a wine ready to drink, young and fruity. Both wines have a quite intense ruby red colour, typical, and intense perfume. They are dry, warm, tasty and lightly tannic.
Winemaker’s Notes

2011 Mastrojanni Brunello di Montalcino
On Sale $59.99
Round and rich with beautiful decadent fruit and richness. Orange peel. Full and juicy. Intense dried fruit and beauty. Sexy. Drink now.
