The Monchiero Barolo hails from Rocche di Castiglione Falletto, a single vineyard site in the heart of the Barolo region. Made from the ubiquitous Nebbiolo grape, this wine is highly structured with intense acidity and aging ability. This Barolo possesses a meaty quality with aromas and flavors of red flowers, natural rubber, spice, and cured meat.
92 Points - The Wine Enthusiast, 2005 vintage
"This is an extraordinary example of the potential of the 2005 vintage. The wine boasts a meaty, bold style with thick aromas of cured meat, bresaola, white mushroom, moist earth, natural rubber and spice. Very intense flavors of chocolate and ground espresso explode in the mouth. Drink after 2018."
Fattoria di Pugliano's "wine of the people," Poggio Vignoso as it is known at home, is a simple, delightful crowd pleaser. An exceptional, food-friendly wine that can be enjoyed with virtually anything. This wine is a remarkable value, it is surprisingly firm, and admirably balanced with intense dried cherries and floral notes. With such consistent quality, it is no surprise that this is such a great seller!
This classic Chianti will pair wonderfully alongside red meat and hearty mushroom risottos; also a perfect wine for pizza.
From the country of Macedonia, this stunning Pinot is named for Alexander the Great (the original "Macedon"), and hails from an area noted as the "cross-roads of the ancient world, and the birthplace of wine". It originates in Gradsko, sharing the same latitude band as Burgundy and Russian River Valley. The 40+ year old vines grow where two major weather fronts collide: the Aral Mountain continental and the Greek Aegean, yielding virtually no rain and consistent wind. The result is a wine of terrific elegance and complexity, rich yet linear; pretty, but with depth and power.
Red berry fruit aromas and flavors are present, yet this wine's earthiness reminds you that it hails from the European continent.
The Mendocino County AVA (American Viticultural Area) in northern California is the backdrop to this organically farmed Cabernet Sauvignon.
"Aromas of red berries reveal flavors of juicy black currant and savory spices. The palate is bright and forward with great acidity and firm, balanced tannins. Echoes of cassis and bayberry mingle with cranberry and quince on the finish. This Cabernet is an elegant wine to pair with your favorite dishes." Try it with grilled beef or lamb. $13.99
