The grapes are fermented in stainless steel after being de-stemmed and left on the skins for approximately 12 hours, resulting in a wine with clear and bright aromas and flavors.The wine settles with the lees contact for six months.Light straw color with just a hint of salmon. Aromas of white flowers, stone fruits such as apricots and peach and hints of minerality. On the palate, the wine is crisp and dry with medium high acidity and tastes of stone fruits, lavender, honey, pear, white flowers and minerals.This Pinot Grigio is perfect on its own as an aperitivo or with Prosciutto San Daniele. It is also wonderful with raw fish, such as sashimi or pesce crudo and is great with elegant chicken, pork and fish dishes.

2015 Scarpetta Barbera del Monferrato DOC
On Sale $12.99
We work with Fabrizio Iuli in Monferrato, Piemonte to create this Barbera. Monferrato is the birthplace for Barbera, and historically unlike the rest of Piedmonte, its top cuvees are frequently Barbera. Hence, for good reason, Barbera from Monferrato is celebrated for its balance of fruit, terroir and acidity.   The grapes are fermented in stainless steel and then approximately 60% aged in 1 year old neutral oak, resulting in a wine that shows fruit and earth without being marked by wood. 60% is aged in wood and 40% stainless steel. The color is bright plum red. There are aromas of Crushed berries and plums and hints of earth and porcini mushrooms. A medium bodied red wine with low tannins but bright acidity, giving it wonderful balance.The high acidity and low tannins let this wine work with everything from a pizza or homemade pasta to a piece of beef or pork.
