For generations, the Almondo family have tended vines of Arneis, the noble white variety of Piedmont. Their Bricco delle Ciliegie dazzles right out of the bottle, with generous aromas of white flowers, almonds and a touch of sage. The mid-palate has layers of concentrated peach and citrus fruit with a mineral streak and a long, clean finish that leaves you wanting another sip.

It’s not surprising this is the fourth straight vintage of at least a 93-point showing and this is even before James Suckling weighs in on his favorite Sardinian winery. By the time he weighs in, it will be too late for wine lovers. I locked into the last 20 cases stateside of this beauty just as Wine Enthusiast was putting the finishing touches on their 93-point Editors’ Choice review, where they loudly called out the wine’s full-bodied juiciness, to match that signature salty finish.
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.

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.
We were the first in the country to bring in Bisol’s Prosecco Rose last year, a super tasty, refreshing sparkler from the Veneto region of northeast Italy. Now, fresh off a huge feature in The Wall Street Journal in which they were crowned as the top Prosecco Rose in a lineup of 14, I suspect what was once our little secret will explode. James Suckling also finally got around to tasting it and gave it 91 points. I’d rate it even higher. The 2020 Bisol Jeio Brut Prosecco Rosé is remarkable, and simply put, mouth-wateringly delicious. Inviting aromas of flowers and wild strawberries, with a complex mouthfeel that sings with citrus fruits and creaminess from the tiny crisp bubbles.
The newly released 2020 Brunori ‘Le Gemme’ Verdichio is everything you’re looking for in a vibrant, food-friendly white wine. About a billion times better than every-day Pinot Grigio, the Brunori is an electric, vibrant white 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. You’re going to want to add a few bottles to your collection ASAP.
What separates this newly released 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 2020 is tightly wound with smooth velvety tannins. This wine is a fresh pizza’s best friend.
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.
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 ‘White Chianti’ is a rare and elegant treat. It’s also a treat to drink outside on the deck over some grilled vegetables, fish or poultry.
Diego Bolognani is one of the most knowledgeable and committed winemakers of Trentino. This Alpine growing region is perfect for Pinot Grigio and Diego’s is one of the best. The newly released 2020 has a beautiful balance of white flowers, nuts, citrus, and stony notes, with an utter purity of fruit and a long, refined finish. So fresh and delicious. Drink it outside all summer long.

Bursting with energy and inviting citrusy aromas of fresh squeezed orange juice, mangoes and papaya. On the mouth, good tension and a touch of minerality to perfectly balance the juicy stone and tropical fruits that await. The finish is super refreshing and makes you want to keep coming back. James Suckling called the finish “lovely” and the wine “really well done”. He’s certainly not wrong.

“The 2017 Barolo Ginestra Casa Matè is a dark, mysterious wine. Black cherry, menthol, tobacco, licorice, spice, new leather and pine meld together in a super-classic expression of Ginestra. Deep, rich and enveloping, the 2017 is so impressive in the early going. Here, too, the finesse of the tannins is remarkable.” – Antonio Galloni
