Bright apple, melon and some minerality show strong on the nose. Nice fleshy body with juicy vibrant flavors of Honey dew, key lime and peach. Fun slight spiciness on the finish. A full figured Sicilian that will break your heart and make you forget your Californian chard twice over.
Vermentino di Sardegna Nuo $18.00
Quite possibly the oldest wine region in the Med, the now overlooked Sardinia has created remarkable wine for over 3 millenia. Long skin contact and a slight oxidation creates this beautiful golden color. Rich oily texture with a solid acid backbone surrounded by a sea breeze note and herbal tones showing basil, rosemary, sage and cedar. Yet underneath all are vibrant citrus and melon. Completely out of the ordinary, yet a style barely changed since the ceasars. Try it!
I Clivi Friulano $21.00
What used to be called Tocai Friulano, and a perfect example of a Northeastern Italian white wine. Crisp stone fruits, an under current of granite with the faintest hint of round melons and pears. Great food wine.
Matteo Correggio Arneis $21.00
Made from the grape Arneis, from Roero in the Northwest part of Italy, nice acidity with loads of peaches and pears, and pineapples. A wonderful grape making a great wine, try with our soft or hard cheeses and any of our meats.
The classic style with Malmsey/Malvasia with surprising balance between acidity and sweetness. Lovely flavors of coffee, nuts, and dried fruit with soft notes of caramel.
