Red | Barbera | Italy | Barbera D'Asti | 750ml
This complex wine sees a bit of wood. Of intense ruby color, it gives aromas of ripe plums and blackberries on the nose. It’s a medium-bodied wine with delicate notes of red fruits. The finish is complex and harmonious.
Red | Salice Salentino | Italy | 750ml
Candied red fruits and spicesare followed by aromas of boxwood, tea and amber, backed up by red flowers. In contrast tannins and fresh acidity make this wine balanced and soft. It will pair perfectly with roasts, veal, venison, lamb, and cheese.

Aromatic, dry and savory flavors. Aged for at least three years in oak barrels.
White | Dolcetto | Italy | 750ml
This is grown on vineyards surrounding the winery's headquarters on the Bricco Bastia hill, where the high altitude and sand-rich soil give the wine great colour, fruity sensations and an interesting acid framework. Very intense ruby red, with purple highlights. Nice lingering nose, showing ripe raspberries. Appealing, soft flavour, with a finely bitterish aftertaste.

Red | Barbera | Italy | 750ml
Red | Italy | Tuscany | 750ml
"Gorgeous aromas of blueberries and currants follow through to a full body, with ultra-fine tannins and a berry, mineral and spice aftertaste. Lasts a long time. Best after 2012." James Suckling (92 Points)
White | White Blend | Italy | Friuli Venezia Guilia | 750ml
Predominantly Ribolla Gialla, with touches of (Tocai) Friulano and Riesling Renano. The soil is predominantly marl, with sandstone. Part of the blend is aged in 750-liter Slavonian oak barrels for 6 months. Brilliant, light straw yellow in color; intense fruit aromas with mineral undertones; fresh, tangy and flavorful on the palate, it shows the unassuming elegance of an authentic country wine.
White | Cortese | Italy | Piedmont | 750ml
Sourced from the estate’s oldest Cortese vines, averaging over 60 years of age, these are also among the oldest in the appellation. Intense lemon citrus fruit with floral and flinty notes on the nose, comparable to the best wines from Chablis.
"A crisp, mouthwatering, medium-weight version, with apple, grapefruit and almond notes. Stays refreshing, ending on a bitter citrus peel flavor." Wine Spectator (88 Points)
Red | Sangiovese | Italy | 750ml
The 2009 Chianti Classico Querciabella floats on the palate with layers of sensual red fruit, flowers and spices. It remains an essentially mid-weight wine graced with exquisite finesse and class, reflecting a stylistic change from some of the bigger vintages of the past. Floral notes reappear on the finish, adding lift and harmony. Anticipated maturity 2012-2019. Robert Parker Wine Advocate 90 Points
Red | Proprietary Red | Italy | Tuscany | 750ml
"The 2009 Mongrana shows off an attractive pliancy and radiance to its red fruit that makes it an excellent choice for near-term drinking. Sweet floral and spice notes add an attractive brightness to the finish. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2014." Wine Advocate (88 Points)
Mongrana is the quintessential expression of the colors, sights and sounds of the Maremma region: fruity and intense, fresh and embracing. A blend of Sangiovese (50%); Merlot (25%); Cabernet Sauvignon (25%) from a biodynamically farmed estate.
Accessories | Italy | Monforte d'Alba | 750ml
A modern Tuscan wine profile and is a blend of Sangiovese, Merlot and other red grapes, mainly Cabernet Sauvignon.
"Alluring aromas of currants and fresh herbs with hints of rose petals. Full body, with juicy tannins and a tangy, fruity, and refreshing finish. Tar and spice undertones. A blend of Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Merlot." James Suckling (95 Points)
Red | Valpolicella | Italy | 750ml
"The 2009 Guidalberto flows across the palate with layers of radiant red fruit. This is another striking, supple Guidalberto loaded with personality. Stylistically it is quite close to the 2007, but with perhaps a touch less body but equally silky, polished tannins. Freshly cut roses, spices and a burst of pure red berries add nuance on the finish. Guidalberto is no longer the stunning value it once was, but it is quite gorgeous in this vintage just the same. This is easily one of the best vintages I can recall tasting." Wine Advocate (92+ Points)
Red | Aglianico | Italy | 750ml
The estate's Aglianico is a gem of a wine. Wild cherries, dark raspberries, spices, leather and licorice come together beautifully in this medium-bodied red. Floral notes waft out from the glass on the finish. There is nothing fussy here, just a flat out delicious bottle of unoaked Aglianico readers are sure to enjoy. Even better, this is a terrific value.
Red | Primitivo | Italy | Salento | 750ml
"The 2009 Primitivo Salento Torcicoda shows plenty of varietal character in its deep, plush fruit. Smoke, licorice, leather, sweet spices and tobacco add complexity to the juicy finish. This is another tasty red well-suited to near-term enjoyment." Wine Advocate (88 Points)
"Subtle currant, cedar and floral aromas follow through to a dense, full-bodied palate of ripe fruits and silky tannins, with a long finish. A little age will soften this just slightly. Really serious. Best after 2010."
Wine Spectator (93) and #40 on Wine Spectator's Top 100 Wines of 2010
"The estate's 2007 Chianti Classico Riserva comes together beautifully in the glass, with layers of perfumed fruit that flow effortlessly from a rich, generous frame. There is wonderful depth and persistence in suggestions of red fruit, earthiness, tobacco and licorice that come to life on the palate. This is one of the more firm 2007s I have come across and it needs to be opened well in advance. Sweet floral notes add brightness and lift to the finish. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2022."
