Kellerei Kaltern Caldaro Schiava 2015 Product #30795 (In Stock)
Kellerei Kaltern Caldaro Schiava  2015 Kellerei Kaltern Caldaro Schiava  2015

Schiava (also called Vernatsch or Trollinger) was actually the region’s most planted grape for many years – with 60% of total vineyard area – until Pinot Grigio and Chardonnay began to supplant it.  That’s too bad, because the light, crisp, and juicy red wines this local grape makes are fun to drink and pair well with a wide range of foods.

Reflecting the cultural and linguistic diversity of Alto Adige, the Schiava grape is called “Kalterersee” in the local dialect of the region around Lake Caldaro.  Grapes for this beauty grew on loamy, limestone gravel soils at 230-450 meters above the Lake and were fermented and aged entirely in tank. A delicious farmhouse red, loaded with red berry fruit, a hint of smoke, and a bright gentle finish.  Kind of like a ripe Chinon (but without the herbal notes), this is delicious with a light chill and shines with everyday foods and cured meats.  A tad more rich and round in the warm 2015 harvest, but still a refreshingly great value!

Villa Jolanda Prosecco Product #22192 (In Stock)
Villa Jolanda Prosecco Villa Jolanda Prosecco

Villa Jolanda Prosecco is made from 100% Prosecco grapes grown in the hills north of Treviso.  Grapes are hand-harvested, chilled in the vineyard, and given a low-temperature fermentation in stainless steel tanks to preserve freshness and fruit.  The wine features lovely aromas of white flowers, orchard fruits, and a touch of mineral.  Lightly sparkling with very pretty, small, bubbles, the wine is full of flavor - peach, ripe apple, lemon zest, and a nice mineral streak.  Fruity and crisp, the wine finishes with a touch of mineral and yellow apple.  A fantastic wine to keep on hand for everyday celebrations or to stock up on for Holiday parties.  Delicious!

Odoardi Savuto Red 2013 Product #30699 (In Stock)
Odoardi Savuto Red 2013 Odoardi Savuto Red 2013

A paradox - how can such a fresh, vibrant, red come from the brutally hot Southern Italian DOC of Savuto in Calabria?  Elevation (Odoardi's vineyards are at up to 2,000 feet) helps, as does a big dose (45%) of Gaglioppo, the soft and bright grape called Arvino locally.  Gaglioppo gives this bright cherry/berry fruit and a soft, round, juicy mid-palate while Aglianico (25%) adds structure and Magliocco Caniino, Greco Nero, and Nerello Cappuccino perfume and complexity.  A great pizza, sausage, pasta, grilled food red, especially with a chill.

Vittiano Bianco Umbria 2015 Vittiano Bianco Umbria 2015

A sizzling and delicious blend of Vermentino and Verdicchio that would cost twice as much from Tuscany - thank goodness for Umbrian value!  Loaded with peach and apricot fruit and lifted by a dash of green citrus zest, this is fresh and fruit-filled enough for casual sipping with the sneaky structure that will sing with seafood, salads and fresh cheeses.  Delicious and fun and fine value.

Palazzone Orvieto Classico Vignarco 2015 Product #31231 (In Stock)
Palazzone Orvieto Classico Vignarco 2015 Palazzone Orvieto Classico Vignarco 2015

We've featured Palazzone's other Orvietos before, but this year it was the Classico that really grabbed our attention.  It's a traditional blend of 50% Procanico, 30% Grechetto and dollops of Verdello, Drupeggio and Malvasia that comes together to deliver boatloads of classic Orvieto character.  What's that, you ask?  Try aromas and flavors of bright, fresh, sweet lemon juice with a twist of fennel frond and squeeze of honeysuckle.  Not a "light, crisp, neutral" Italian white, this sports big flavors and a rich, mouth-coating, texture and a long, mouthwatering, finish of lemon oil, honeysuckle, and mineral flavors lingering nicely.  There's enough body and interest and fruit to make this a joy to drink solo and it will sing with salads, seafood, and cheese.  A winning value that outperforms many wines at 2x the price.

Cantele Salice Salentino Riserva 2013 Product #31614 (In Stock)
Cantele Salice Salentino Riserva 2013 Cantele Salice Salentino Riserva 2013

Best vintage yet for this long-time southern Italian favorite!

"The Cantele 2013 Salice Salentino Riserva shows a greater level of depth and finesse compared to many of its peers. The wine is packed tight with blackberry fruit, with Maraschino cherry, plum and prune in abundance. The wine is chewy and rich for sure, but it also provides an authentic and generous portrait of a red wine from Puglia. A spicy beef or lamb dish would make the perfect pairing partner."Wine Advocate 90 points

Volpetti Cesanese 2015 Product #31710 (In Stock)
Volpetti Cesanese 2015 Volpetti Cesanese 2015

Even bigger, bolder, more fruit filled, and even more delicious than before.  From vineyards around Rome, the Volpetti packs a punch of lush dark damson plum and black cherry fruit with accents of earth and spice.  A short stay in old oak barrels softens the tannins and adds a hint of sweet balsamic.  Drink this a touch cool with pizza margherita, a bowl of pasta in red sauce, or even a big, juicy, burger and you'll be very, very, happy!

Scarpetta Prosecco Brut NV Product #31419 (In Stock)
Scarpetta Prosecco Brut NV Scarpetta Prosecco Brut NV

If you're writing too many words (or thinking too hard about) Prosecco, then you're probably doing something wrong.  This is the kind of Prosecco Italians drink in the afternoon or during the run up to dinner, a crisp, clean, glass of fizz that enlivens the spirits and whets the appetite.  Ripe peach and pear fruit hold center stage with a spice note adding interest.  Fruity, frothy, fun.

Fracchia Voulet Malvasia Di Casorzo D'asti 2015 Fracchia Voulet Malvasia Di Casorzo D'asti 2015

This delicious frizzante wine is a rare version of red Malvasia, made with a touch of sweetness and a light, frothy, sparkle. As The Washington Post’s Dave McIntyre said about the 2011, “This delightful little frizzante red from Piedmont is a cousin to Brachetto d’Acqui, and equal to Brachetto in its affinity for chocolate."  As always, the lightly sweet red raspberry and strawberry fruit is a delight!

La Mondianese Grignolino D' Asti 2014 Product #31377 (In Stock)
La Mondianese Grignolino D' Asti 2014 La Mondianese Grignolino D' Asti 2014

What is Grignolino?  A red wine grape from Piemonte, Italy, where the root name – grignole – means “many pips”, referring to the many seeds found in this rarely seen grape.  It’s prone to being tough and tannic, but not here.  Diane thought this tasted like “Pinot Noir and Sangiovese had a baby”, and there's definitely something to that.  In any event, it’s a lightly colored and textured wine that opens with aromas of sweet cherry, red berries, and a hint of lavender.  In the mouth the fruit is bright and juicy and a touch of earthiness comes up at the end.  Light enough to drink with fish or to take a chill for solo sipping.

Zardini Valpolicella Ripasso Superiore 2014 Zardini Valpolicella Ripasso Superiore 2014

A rarity here:  a nicely priced Ripasso that really does evoke Amarone character in a rich, crowd-pleasing, style.  Black berry, dried fruit, smoke and chocolate aromas and flavors lead the way.  There's good richness and plushness to the texture and a streak of chocolate and dried fruit that starts in the middle and flows on through the powerful, but supple, finish.

The main white grape used in Umbria's Orvieto, here Grechetto gets a little extra bump from 10% Trebbiano Spoletino.  And an even bigger bump from the fantastic 2015 harvest, which gives this year's release remarkable volume and depth.  Bright, fresh, aromas of lemon oil, fennel frond, peach and a hint of crushed herb.  Then big, bold, flavors of fresh pineapple, pear and lemon pulp that really fill your mouth and are then scrubbed up by a bright, salty mineral and lemon zest, finish.  This is a lot of wine for the money!

Fortunately, this wine with a mouthful of a name delivers a mouthful of delight!  Aromas of purple flowers, crushed black cherry, smoke and leather lead to big flavors of black cherry and plum with accents of spice and licorice.  Juicy up front, broad in the middle, and crisp and energetic at the end.  A terrific blend of Sangiovese (85%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (15%) that’s both seductively rich and brightly refreshing.  Not much you’re likely to put on your table that won’t play nicely with this terrific value.

Marramiero Montepulciano d'Abruzzo Da Ma 2014 Marramiero Montepulciano d'Abruzzo Da Ma 2014

If you’ve enjoyed Villa Medoro’s Tre Bicchieri Montepulciano, then Da Ma is definetly a wine you’ll want to try.  Made from Montepulciano grown on different sites from across the DOC zone, this is a terrific example of how Montepulciano can be both ripe and fresh at the same time.  It’s very fragrant with aromas of smoke, leather, and a touch of something earthy over ripe blackberry fruit.  Then big and mouthfilling and generous flavors of juicy blackberry, raspberry, cherry and even some strawberry and a touch more leather and smoke.  The fine, soft, tannins give this enough structure to stand up to meat but it’s a pretty delectable sipper, too.
