NV Collevento 921 Prosecco, Veneto
On Sale $14.99
Exclusively Glera grapes, harvested in the first weeks of September, absolutely intact berries, accurate extraction of the free-run juice and careful re-fermentation by using the Charmat Method: these are the precious ingredients of an extra dry Prosecco. The taste is dry, crisp, and fresh, yet soft with harmonious hints of acacia and apple. Prosecco season is definitely here and this one is a staff favorite!
2017 Antonutti Pinot Grigio “Ramato,” Friuli DOC
On Sale $17.99
This unique style of Pinot Grigio is getting extra attention these days.”Ramato” or Copper refers to the color of the wine from a handful of hours of skin contact. The nose is ripe with fresh tropical notes, and the flavors are tight and tangy with crisp apple highlighting the entry and mid palate. The finish is lasting and the minerality is present.
2016 Badia di Morrona “Caligiano,” Chianti DOCG
On Sale $12.99
This spicy, smooth Sangiovese comes to us from a great producer, but more importantly 2015 IS A GREAT CHIANTI VINTAGE! It’s a classic example of the grape, with succulent dark cherry, plum, smoke, licorice, and a backbone of fresh herbs, amped up by the natural richness of the year. The tannins are soft and understated but provide a nice dry finish. In 2015, the Caligiano is both a huge overachiever and a terrific value. The wine drinks incredibly well at a bargain price!
2017 Mauro Molino Barbera d’Alba
On Sale $16.99
Plenty of dark berries, dark chocolate and some scorched lemon rind. Medium to full body with juicy fruit at the end. Delicious. Drink now.
