Col Solivo Prosecco Col Solivo Prosecco $12.00

Yum! Soft peach and floral notes with a smooth finish. This Prosecco is classified "Extra Dry" which means its a touch sweeter than the "Bruts" that are next to it. A very easy drinking bubbly and a great price!



Latium Morini Latium Morini $14.00

A good deal on another "Baby Amarone" and a seriously delicious red blend from the region near Venice, Italy. Medium bodied, spicy and really lovely with summer cuisine with its zippy red berries, cherries and exotic spice notes, perfect for grilled poultry, pork, fish and summery pastas.



Bertolani Lambrusco Rose Secco Bertolani Lambrusco Rose Secco $14.00

Most of the Lambrusco that has hit our shores has been syrupy, nasty stuff like Ruinete (ruin is in the name) and whatever they pour in the Garden of Olives. This is a different creature altogether, bringing soft red raspberry and pink grapefruit up front before finishing clean. It will change your worldview in a single serving.



Gran Passione Gran Passione $15.00

From the land of Amarone comes a delicious Merlot based blend. To perfectly ripe Merlot (60%) is added juice from dried Corvina grapes ala Amarone. Rich, deep and smooth, this is a remarkable Merlot that may just change your Merlot worldview!



Raphael Dal Bo Organic Prosecco Rose Raphael Dal Bo Organic Prosecco Rose $15.00

Made with organically grown Glera (Prosecco) and Raboso grapes, this outstanding fizzy rose is a joyful bottle of sunshine. The mousse (foam) is fine and vivacious. Lots of gorgeous aromas with a clean finish.



Vecchia Modena Chiarli Lambrusco Vecchia Modena Chiarli Lambrusco $17.00

Delicious, full of dark raspberry, violet, rose, blueberry and black pepper aromas & flavors. Called “Old Modena” as the winery in Modena (just above Bologna in Emilia Romagna region) is 150 years old. Done in the "secco" or dry style, this is nothing like the one you'd find in the "olive garden". This is the quintessential wine to drink with a friends on a hot summer day.



San Brizio San Brizio $23.00

This is a 100% Garganega from the vineyard behind Villa Buri. Maturation in 500 lt oak barrels fills out the typical scents of Garganega with delicate tertiary hints of vanilla, acacia honey and a complex ripe fruitiness that make it concentrated, mouth-filling and faintly balsamic. This great Soave from the Alpone Valley is rich and well-structured, with a deep straw yellow hue and golden highlights.



Palazzo Della Torre Palazzo Della Torre $24.00

This blend of 70% Corvina Veronese, 25% Rondinella and 5% Sangiovese is a smooth, fullbodied cru made in an innovative ripasso style. After the harvest, the grapes from the Palazzo della Torre vineyard follow two different paths: 70% of the grapes picked are vinified immediately, and the remaining 30% are left to dry until the end of December. The fresh wine made at harvest is blended with the fermenting juice of the dried grapes, initiating a second fermentation, and rendering a more highly concentrated and complex wine. Allegrini affectionately refers to Palazzo della Torre as its "baby Amarone." Deep ruby red in color, this wine is brimming with notes of dark, dried cherries, blackberries and hints of dates and mocha.

    #2 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. (behind by 10 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.

Although still young and firmly wound, the vibrant blackberry and dried spice flavors integrate well with youthful yet supple tannins with the trademark loooong and sleek finish. Meant to go 10 to 15 years to hit its prime.

    Lightly sparkling, fruity and sassy, Poquito is small in size but big on taste. Delicate floral aromas combine with a sweet yet refreshing palate of ripe peaches, pears and apricots. Apply liberally at any social occasion. Great right out of the bottle but really amazing with mint and rum as a mojito!
