From Soave Classico’s most privileged volcanic-limestone hillsides, this is a high-tone northern Italian white bursting with white flowers, honeysuckle and stone fruits. Crisp and clean, finishing juicy and surprisingly long. A perfect complement to all kinds of seafood dishes, summer vegetables, poultry and light cheeses. There is no old-vine, small lot Pinot Grigio that exists for anywhere near the price of this one.
Despite Prosecco being the quintessential apertivo of Italy – this is no ordinary Prosecco. Bele Casel is hands down the best of the best. Fruity aromas, bright acidity and effervescence make this the perfect way to start an evening. It’s light, fun and extremely food friendly.

The Bisol “Jeio” Prosecco NV is a delicious sparkler that comes from the Veneto region of northeast Italy. A brilliant straw yellow color, the first sip is an intense and fresh nose of citrus fruits and saline sensations. If you love fruit forward sparklers… this one is for you.
For the first time ever in the U.S., Pink bubbles from our favorite, Bisol. The 2019 Bisol “Jeio” Prosecco Rose is a tasty, refreshing sparkler that comes from the Veneto region of northeast Italy. This is the first year the family has made a pink Prosecco, but I’m lobbying for this every year. Inviting aromas of flowers and wild strawberries, with a complex mouthfeel that sings with citrus fruits and creaminess from the tiny crisp bubbles. This is a ‘must have’ this holiday season.
What separates this Valpolicella from its peers is the grapes used were grown for this wine specifically. This isn’t Amarone seconds, it’s a precisely crafted and seductive rendition of the Corvina grape that will appeal to Red Burgundy lovers. Highly versatile and elegant, Ca La Bionda’s Valpolicella mesmerizes with red and blackberries, anise and Asian spices with serious depth.
The Piccoli family has been farming for generations dating back to 1600 and their dedication to the land shows. In addition to their 23 hectacres under vine, Gianni and his three sons sustainably farm grapes, apricots, peaches and kiwi on the shores of Lake Gardam, where old vines rooted in gravelly, porous soil, yield an aromatic, vibrant red blend of Corvina and Rodinella. This Bardolino “Le Fontane” features a a juicy core of cherry, pomegranate and orange zest with a high-toned mineral finish that is a great compliment to a pizza served up Margherita style or even with some Sopressata thrown on top.
The best white wine of the summer has arrived. Bolognani has been a staple on our list since the day we opened the door. It’s everything you want in Pinot Grigio. It’s floral with a pretty nose, a juicy middle and the zippy finish. It’s an incredibly expressive, refreshing wine that has all the goods– it’s aromatic, crisp and clean.
For those of you who don’t already know by now, Sergio Germano is a wizard. His tank-fermented Chardonnay is sourced from his high elevation vineyards in Cigliè, just outside the Barolo zone, rooted on a crazy steep hillside in sheer limestone. The 2019 Chard a laser beam of crunchy green apple fruit, stony minerality and fresh acidity. It absolutely lances through rich cuisine, perfect with fatty salmon belly, roasted chicken and morels or omelettes with goat cheese and asparagus. Perfect wine for spring, don’t miss.
The ’19 Nebbiolo, a product of warm year yet with a long, even growing season, is exciting wine, showing off the aristocratic, finesse side of Nebbiolo. This is medium bodied, racy red wine, perfect with earthy, home-styled cuisine, roasted chicken with morels, grilled beef or any kind of lentil dish. Act fast, it’s never around too long!
Riccardo Cotarella has earned some serious accolades in his career. He’s won winemaker of the year honors from multiple publications and Robert Parker Jr. called him, “one of the most influential personalities in the world in the last 20 years.” Farmed and produced by Riccardo and his brother Renzo off the family winery in Lazio, the 2015 Sodale Merlot hits you with concentrated waves of blackberries, raspberries, and cherries with slight baking spice and leather aromas. This is tightly woven and super fresh– an absolute gem in the warm 2015 vintage.

By now you know that the 2016 Barolo vintage was one for the record books. So it wasn’t surprising that tiny Franco Amoroso produced the best Barolo in their history. Typically dense aromas cherry and chocolate intertwine with a touch of the floral. The wine is dense, but sleek, and best yet, it’s ready to drink now – just give 30 minutes or so to open up.
The 2019 Barbera from my friend Gianni Doglia just got off-loaded from its temp-controlled container and is ready to go. Black in color to the core, bright and wonderfully aromatic, this is an organic, juicy red wine that is flat-out epic with a Rosie’s pie. Do not miss out on what should be your next House red!
