2017 Loma Larga Sauvignon Blanc, Casablanca Valley, Chile
On Sale $14.99
This is juicy and elegant in a way that few Chilean sauvignon blancs are. Very attractive canteloupe melon character, some real depth and length, but no hint of heaviness. Drink now. Screw cap.

2016 Felsina “Berardenga,” Chianti Classico DOCG
On Sale $22.99
This is fragrant and floral with dark berries on the nose. Medium body, firm and silky tannins and a fresh, clean finish. A driven and linear Chianti Classico. The backbone of fresh acidity gives this focus. Drink now or hold.

2016 Domaine des 3 Celliers Chateauneuf du Pape “Alchimie”
On Sale $29.99
Powered by outrageously perfumed red berries, stone fruits and garrigue, the 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape Alchimie is 60% Grenache, 16% Syrah and 10% Mourvèdre, with smaller amounts of Clairette Rose, Counoise, Terret Noir and Vaccarèse. Aged in foudre, the fruit and flowers of the region stay at the forefront of this full-bodied beauty. It’s complex and plush yet retains grip on the long finish. For the folks who bemoan high alcohol levels, this wine weighs in at a declared 14.5% and shows no heat.

2015 Loma Larga Quinteto Red Blend, Casablanca Valley, Chile
On Sale $14.99
In this unique blend of five red varieties of cool climate, the outstanding Cabernet Franc, our emblematic variety, combines hits fruit and mineral intensity with the delicate red fruit of Pinot Noir, the floral aromas of Malbec, the tannic and spicy intensity of the Syrah and the silkiness of the Merlot.

2015 Feudi di San Gregorio Aglianico Irpinia “Rubrato,” Campania
On Sale $12.99
This shows such a beautiful density and texture with licorice and blackberry character. Full and layered yet always tight and focused. A fantastic young red. Drink or hold.
