The 2019 Abbonna Dolcetto Langhe is a must try on its own– but is also a showstopper with Italian food. Made for those who love wines that are super dark fruited and in color with aromas of black cherry, blackberries and baked cake spice. Anna Maria’s Langhe Dolcetto is the product of extremely low-yielding but highly concentrated juice that comes from the younger vines of her Estate. Incredibly fun to drink and to smell — it’s also what some would argue is the best compliment to a good pizza pie with some meat on it!
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.
Prosecco is the quintessential apertivo of Italy. Its fruity aromas, bright acidity and effervescence make this style of wine a perfect way to start an evening. Bele Casel consistently delivers the best of the best of what everyone loves about the varietal, 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.
Pizza demands juicy, fresh wine and time and time again, I find myself reaching for anything Cristina Brunori makes. Cristina and her family grow Sangiovese and Montepulciano in the Marches, a spectacularly beautiful spot in Italy right on the Adriatic coast. Her old vines, mineral soil, and the temperate winds of the Adriatic all help produce vibrantly flavored grapes. This one is bursting with energy, fresh juicy red fruits with just the slightest touch of that Italian rusticity.
The 2019 Brunori ‘Le Gemme’ Verdichio is a total knock-out. About a billion times better than every-day Pinot Grigio, the Brunori is an electric, vibrant white wine which combines delicious fruit and vibrancy with boasts a killer nose of white peach, honeycomb and almonds. The fruit is wonderfully concentrated with a salty, stony finish that goes forever.
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, 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.

Elena Walch’s 2019 Pinot Bianco may be the best example of Pinot Blanc I’ve ever had. Super light in color, with a busy nose that boasts ripe aromas of citrus, apple pie with a hint of fresh bouquet. Made entirely in stainless steel, the wine is expressive, fresh and finishes as clean and tight as can be. At 93 points and under $20, this one is a home run.
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!
Robert Parker, Jr. once called winemaker Cristina Geminani, “one of the most talented women in Italy.” It’s no wonder why. While it can be overlooked by the Ceregio and the flagship Gambero Rosso, the Bianco di Ceparano is an electric bottle of white wine that dazzles with just about any food pairing– but since we are talking Romagna, it shines with pizza. No matter if the sauce is white or red on the pizza, the wine boasts seductive tropical and citrus flavors and a piercing minerality that can cut thru anything from cream sauce to steak. Not to be overlooked in a sea of Red!
