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.
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.

An absolute treat coming out of Piedmont. Open this one a good deal before you plan to serve and let it get some air. The nose is very pretty with cherry, cassis and dried currant. Red fruits on the palate with nuanced dash of cigar smoke, wild berry preserves, and tobacco. It’ll be a show stopper in a year or two but it’s starting to really hit its stride right now.

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.
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.

Elena Walch’s 2020 Pinot Bianco continues to be the best example of Pinot Blanc I’ve ever had. There’s so much energy in this new release. Super light in color, with a busy nose that boasts ripe aromas of citrus, granny smith apple with a hint of freshly mowed grass. Made entirely in stainless steel, the wine is expressive, fresh and finishes as clean and tight as can be. At 92 points and under $20, this one is again a home run offer.

“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
The newly released and highly charged 2020 Grasso Langhe Nebbiolo is a classic Nebbiolo from a warm but even growing season, that looks to be pretty strong from early indications. It explodes from the glass with complex aromatics of crushed black raspberry jam, strawberry currants and baking spice. A rich mouthfeel of sweet floral and red berries flavors leads to a stony, firm finish that goes on forever. So stinking good.
Across the board, Sergio’s wines enjoy an incredible vibrancy. They are big wines with such a streak of elegance, a quality rare in any part of the wine world. His newly released 2020 Barbera d’Alba was fermented and aged in a steel tank so it is completely about the fruit, no oak influence here. It’s clean, concentrated, zipped up Barbera, as good a food wine as any we have offered at Nicholas Wines.
“Sometimes the impact of a winery is so positive that it enriches a whole area with its quality, consistency and continuity. This is true of Fattoria Zerbina.” – Gambero Rosso
Made by Cristina Geminani, who Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate called, “one of the best in all of Italy”. With both brighter acids and darker fruit than Chianti Classico, the Ceregio is brilliant ruby color, with racy, black cherry fruit flavors, and probably the longest finish I’ve ever tasted at any where near this price point.
