The Wine Advocate already knows: “Aia Vecchia is one of the more under the radar producers in Bolgheri, but the wines rarely fail to deliver the goods.” In the outstanding 2018 vintage, they delivered the goods and then some. The 2018 Aia Vecchia Lagone Toscana is an absolute stunner. I’m calling early again this year – this will likely be my bargain of the year in Tuscany. Lush, dark fruits, licorice and baking spices with a lengthy smooth finish. It’s delicious.
The 2020 Abbonna Dolcetto Langhe is a must try on its own– but it is also a showstopper with pizza. Made for those who love their wines dark fruited, this boasts a jet black color with aromas of black cherry, blackberries and baked cake spice. The 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! If you haven’t tried one of Anna Maria’s Dolcettos, stop missing out!
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.
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. 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’ for Mother’s Day and all summer long.
We’re excited to be the first in line for Matt Cline’s new project. Budwood Ancient Vine Own Rooted Red is a blend of Carignan, Mataro and Alicante Bouschet. The color is a deep purple all the way to its rim. The nose is tell-tale Contra Costa, with dusty berry aromas mingled with eucalyptus and mint. Made without oak, the fruit is unadulterated, pure, dark and concentrated, the kind that only ancient vines can produce. The finish is fine, long with a firm acid backbone. This wine was made for outdoor dining, a burger has never met a better match!
Everybody loves a great sparkling rose served chilled almost as much as they love a good story. Today’s wine combines the two. “Il Vigliacco” or “the coward” is the Buglioni’s defiant message to the Italian Wine Consortium, but it’s also a wonderful, delicious sparkling rose with its seductive aromas, tiny, creamy bubbles and it’s wonderful dry fruit. This is a great one to drink and talk about with your friends.
The Carneros Reserve bottling cherry picks the family’s favorite lots to blend into a harmonious explosion – nearing a sensory overload. The nose is like sticking your face in a freshly baked peach/apple cobbler pie. Equally assertive flavors of melon, apples, and pears swim around the palate. Everything you expect from a classic Cakebread.

“The 2016 Brunello di Montalcino makes a great first impression thanks to the purity and intensity of the fruit. Those two things—purity and intensity—can sometimes be uncomfortable bedfellows, but this expression from Caprili unites them in happy marriage. The bouquet opens to bright red fruit, cola, chopped mint and blue flower. There is a lot of beautiful energy on hand. The wine is smooth and silky, giving it both near and long-term appeal.”
Drawn from two choice spots in the Columbia Valley where Washington’s high desert land meets the Columbia River – the 2018 Cascade Heights is a juicy, inky purple, full-bodied Cabernet. Despite the bright tannins that argue for a successful drinking window of over 10+ years, this big, juicy cab is drinking excellent right now. The ‘X’ factor though is the price. At just $15/btl on bottle 1, this is unrivaled value territory.

The 2018 Castello di Volpaia Chianti Classico is an absolute stunner and is my early runner for Italian Wine of the Year. Drawn from high-elevation, organic vineyards – this one features complex aromas that one would expect from a wine three times the cost. A pair of rave reviews as is accustomed from this great winery that never ceases to make outstanding wine.

A very special Italian Collectors item. Elements of cherries and cigar box seem to dominate, but then notes of almonds, more cherry, and then blackberry and leather seem to dance in and out. But when you consider truly great wines, ones that really deserve at least a 10 year slumber in a dark cellar – the price point can be down right frightening. Not so today. I think you could start drinking this soon and enjoy it for the next two decades easy.
