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.

“A very beautiful and thoughtful Testamatta with aromas of earth, terra cotta, black tea, and lavender. Full-bodied, very layered and extremely polished with superb, soft tannins. Racy and very long. Muscular and formed but very, very balanced. Gorgeous richness and depth. Shows balance and wonder.” – James Suckling

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.
Corzano’s Toscana Bianco is a blend of six varieties, native and French, drawn from vines rooted in the gravelly, clay and limestone-rich soils of Chianti. After a cold fermentation in steel, blocking malolactic fermentation, the result is a mineral accented white and yellow fruit core that finishes beautifully fresh with lingering acidity. This baby has ‘Pizza Wine’ written all over it. It’s also a treat to drink outside on the deck over some grilled vegetables, fish or poultry.
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.

“The Elio Grasso 2016 Barolo Gavarini Chiniera is immediately expressive and bright. The wine is savory and rich with a generous bouquet of dried berries, spice, crushed flowers and even a hint of market-fresh blueberry that we don’t see in the other wines. The bouquet moves toward balsam notes with mint and rosemary the longer it stays in the glass. I also get anise flower and fresh licorice root as a pretty signature on the close. With aging in large Slavonian oak casks, the tannic integration is spot-on and so is the freshness and purity of those beautiful Nebbiolo nuances. Drink 2022-2050.”
The 2019 Grasso Langhe Nebbiolo is a budding classic from a warm but long and even growing season, sure to go down as one of the greats. It explodes from the glass with complex aromatics of crushed black raspberry, violets and anise. A rich mouthfeel of sweet floral and red berries flavors leads to a stony, firm finish that goes on forever.

“Luminous red. High-pitched aromas of sour red cherry, raspberry, rose, stainless steel, white pepper and minerals. Dense and silky in texture but displays great juiciness, clarity and floral lift; the lively but harmonious acidity really lifts and frames the bright red and mineral flavors. Totally saturates the palate and yet comes off as virtually weightless. This hauntingly beautiful wine showcases everything Brunello can be when made from an ultra-competent producer farming Sangiovese vines that grow in what is a real grand cru section of the much too large Brunello di Montalcino denomination.” -Ian D’Agata
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!
Finding great value in the shadow of Italy’s two great wine growing areas, Barolo and Barbaresco, requires getting off the beaten path. One of my favorite places to look for great Tuesday nighters is Asti. Although it is better known for the Moscato, Nebbiolo could be its calling card because in very few places of the world does it thrive like it does here. Gianni Doglia naturally farms a tiny estate in the picturesque hamlet of Castagnole Lanze. His Monferrato Rosso is 100% Nebbiolo, the product of old vines, vinfied without oak to preserve it’s incredible fruit. Purple to its core, bright and wonderfully aromatic, this is food-friendly, Pizza Wine red wine that can double just as well all on its own.

Isole e Olena’s flagship wine in the exceptional 2016 vintage in Tuscany is in a class of its own. The wine is insane. Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate shared my love for the wine, giving it a 97 point score and heaping massive amounts of praise including saying in their review, “Cepparello is like a crystal ball into the heart and soul of Sangiovese”. That starts to capture just how good this 2016 effort was from one of Tuscany’s best and most consistent producers.

A modern take on the old-school style of Chianti Classico, Giovanni Poggiali crafts a special blend that includes a little of his own secret sauce, two indigenous Tuscan grapes, Canaiolo and Mammolo which gives the wine an incredibly refreshing lift and brings in unique floral and spice components.
