Campania


Arbosto Bianco Arbosto Bianco $10.00

Down in the south of Italy, wine and seafood are everyday if not multiple times a day. Straightforward, big acid to cut olive oil, body to fit on the table any time. A rare grape for us but one that dates back thousands of years to Greece. Try it with rich seafood and see how it simply works perfectly.



Gran Passione White Gran Passione White $13.00

Bright pear, pineapple and lemon peel flavors that finish clean. Shows a solid mineral backbone and round body while being smooth but lively as well. Made for light meats and seafood.



Taburno Aglianico Taburno Aglianico $13.00

It's not Taurasi but it is a great wine for the money. Juicy red berries, violets, and crushed stone show on the nose. It's a lighter, leaner style but still showing some fun smoke, tobacco, game and a nice vibrant acidity.



Taburno Folius Sparkling Falanghina Taburno Folius Sparkling Falanghina $20.00

Sometimes I think I need an intervention with regard to Italian wines. A sparkling Falanghina? Really? Oh yes and it's so delicious. Made similar to Prosecco and "extra dry" means the fruit is the star of the show. Itís clean, a little soft and charming without being pretentious. Nice soft nose of apple and lemon cream with a little pie crust. You may not want Prosecco again, but good luck finding this anywhere but here or another geeky wine shop.



Orchard Wine Cellar Movers and Shakers This Week

  • Bonavita Red

    #1 Bonavita Red

    Made from four grapes harvested later than usual to achieve a greater ripeness and smoothness. A deep and inky wine, with ripe plum and blackcurrant aromas. Nice ripe fig and cherry with chocolate and licorice flavors. Just enough oak to give it some backbone.
    (Holding the #1 spot)

  • Sweet Sunset Chocolate Merlot

    #2 Sweet Sunset Chocolate Merlot

    First lets say that this is Not ChocoVine. This wine is actually made with eighty five percent Merlot and than has natural chocolate cream added to the mix. This is the wine for anyone looking for sweet red or the chocolate lover at home. Great gift for the holidays. (behind by 13 bottles)

  • Tintero Moscato

    #3 Tintero Moscato

    Sori Gramella refers to the one of the only single vineyard Moscatos, and Marco is the only producer to bottle this striking limestone amphitheater commercially. Once the 30 year old vines give up their bounty, and the grapes are harvested and pressed, they are kept in stainless steel at a low temperature to prevent fermentation until an order is received in order to provide the freshest wine possible. (behind by 5 bottles)

  • Armas de Guerra Rose

    #4 Armas de Guerra Rose

    My heavens! 50+ year old, organic Mencia vines from some of the highest vineyards in Bierzo. Subtle aromas of strawberry, pink grapefruit and white pepper play with clean river rock minerality touched by zesty key lime. Balance and finish are tied together with a vibrating acidity. Structured and executed like a world class ballerina doing flamenco. Sells out every year for good reason. Lighter than Provence, a different planet than White Zin. The only hard part is only opening one bottle at a time. tied
