07 Sep Amazing Closeout Red!
This delicious Italian blend usually sells for twice the price, but we got a great deal as our supplier closed out the vintage and we’re passing on the savings to you! This little gem is from Small Vineyards Imports, a company focused on small, family-owned vineyards that preserve the best traditional Italian grapes and winemaking techniques. It should not be this inexpensive, based on the quality. This won’t be around long, so grab yours now!
2008 Casa Contini Biferno Riserva
A smashing value, this Southern Italian blend is wonderfully smooth and balanced. Made from two of our favorite “underrated” varietals, Montepulciano and Aglianico, Casa Contini’s Biferno Riserva is atypical of many of its ungainly Southern counterparts, whose alcohol tends to be too hot, and fruits overripe. Rather, it is like a Northern Italian in its cool smoothness, with a smoky blackberry, chestnut, and peppery-sweet aroma that delights the senses.
