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!
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.
The perfect summer Pizza wine. Grignolino spends very short time on the skins and then is pressed without them, leaving a beautiful light violet color. The 2019 vintage has a killer nose of wild strawberries, savory spice and lilac. Don’t let the color fool you, it’s deeply concentrated, loaded with fresh red fruits and finishes long and dry with firm tannins. Pair with prosciutto, burrata, simple pastas along with your pizza.
93 Points, Vinous Media
In their rave 93-point review of the wine, Vinous called it, “Lovely stuff” describing it as “Ripe and expansive but also very pure and clean on the palate.” Of the very few wines that make it stateside from this tiny volcano rim, my favorite by far is from Tenuta di Fessina. If you have time to sit and drink it– it will pay dividends. It takes time to unwind in the glass, constantly pealing back new layers of intricacy and complex notes. Red and black currants with smooth tannins and a hint of bramble and baking spice on the finish. An impeccably balanced wine.
