2012 Matteo Correggia Roero Arneis $18.99
This benchmark quality Arneis gets it outstanding freshness from a dual harvesting technique. Half of the grapes are picked in the first harvest, and the other half are picked 10 days later. Incredibly aromatic and fresh, this wine sets a high bar for quality. Powerful aromas of almond and peach, with sense of grapefruit and white flowers. Medium bodied with a smooth texture. The exceptionally fresh, mouthwatering finish is due no doubt to the dual harvest.
2012 Vallevo Montepulciano d’Abruzo $7.99
Like everyone who love wine I am constantly on the lookout for the best school-night red I can find, a wine that over delivers and is wonderfully well priced. Vallevo Montepulciano has consistently been that wine for me. Montepulciano makes some famous top-end big reds here in the Abruzzo, but the variety also makes amazingly good inexpensive red wine, far better than comparable Sangiovese. Aromas and flavors of black plum, black cherry, herbs, and black olives surround a wonderful meaty texture, with enough chewiness to make the wine stand up to food. This is the ideal ‘spaghetti red,’ at a price that will bring a smile to your face every time you open a bottle. - LM
2011 Mazzei Poggio Alla Badiola Toscana $12.99
With roots that reach back to 998 AD, this noble wine estate is considered one of Tuscany’s top sources of serious Tuscan wine. In addition to Sangiovese, Fonterutoli’s vineyards are planted to Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, whose grapes are used in blends such as this silky-textured Badiola. Crack this Mini-Tuscan when you want to pump up a pepperoni pizza or pasta Bolognese. This cherry- and spice-packed red isn’t shy about liking oregano-dusted grilled meats either.
2010 Terredora Aglianico Campania
Was: $18.99; Now: $13.99
A medium-bodied dense ruby/purple red wine that makes attractive drinking as a young wine. In the glass the wine is a bright dark cherry red with spicy aromas of ripe red berries, violets and a slight gamey character. A young easy to drink style of wine it has soft berry flavors and soft subtle oak characters. It has a delightfully finish. Food pairings: It accompanies traditional Mediterranean dishes including sliced meats, soups and pasta dishes, lasagna, white meats and light main courses.
2010 Petrolo Torrione $24.99
93 Points Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate; 93 Points James Suckling: “An aromatic Torrione with violets, berries and spices. Hazelnut aromas as well. Full body, with pretty tannins and a delicate fruity finish. Nicely integrated tannins. Always beautiful. Better after 2014 but why wait?”- James Suckling
“The 2010 Torrione is exception and a very reasonable value. It opens with elegant richness and soft tones of black cherry, licorice, spice and dark leather. The style is opulent and confident for this mostly Sangiovese-based wine. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024.” Monica Larner, Wine Advocate
2009 Zyme Valpolicella Classico $47.99
In ancient Greek, the word zyme means “yeast,” a term of fundamental importance in oenology. Zyme’s logo is a pentagon within a vine leaf, symbolizing the five primary elements of wine making – man, vine, earth, sun, water. Zyme was officially founded by Celestino Gaspari in 2003, but has been active since 1999 as his oenological consulting firm. Zyme winery is located in the heart of the Valpolicella Classico area with a unique cellar in an ancient sandstone quarry within the town of San Pietro in Cariano. Smooth, elegant, refined, as well as light-bodied, although the latter term does not imply lack of complexity. On the one hand, a clean-edged profile gives it classic typicity, but its genuineness reflects great personality on the other. This is the expressiveness that Gaspari strives to bring out, reflecting the grapes, the soils and the care, increasingly painstaking, to avoid invasive winemaking procedures.
2010 Paolo Scavino Barolo (Pre-Arrival) $54.99
Lowest Price in the Country! 91 Points Antonio Gallon, Vinous: “Saving’s 2010 Barolo is supple and open, even in this vintage. Sweet red cherries, savory herbs, tobacco and mint meld together in an approachable Barolo that will drink well pretty much right out of the gate. The 2010 is all about polish, finesse and delicacy. Sweet spices and crushed flowers meld into the expressive finish. The main vineyard sites are Rocche Mariondino, Vignolo, Altenasso, Terlo, Vignano and San Bernardo. The Scavino Barolo is a wonderful lens through which to get an early sense of the vintage.” (AG)
2010 Paolo Scavino Bric del Fiasc (Pre-Arrival) $89.99
Lowest Price in the Country! 95+ Antonio Galloni, Vinous: “Dark red fruit, iron, smoke, incense and orange peel are some of the many notes that flesh out in the 2010 Barolo Bric del Fiasc. A deep, fleshy Barolo, the Bric del Fiasc is incredibly polished and refined, with perhaps a bit less power than previous vintages, but more in the way of finesse. At this stage, the Bric del Fiasc comes across as not fully formed. It will be interesting to see what the next year brings.” (AG)
2010 Paolo Scavino Barolo Carobric (Pre-Arrival) $84.99
Lowest Price in the Country! 96 Points Antonio Galloni, Vinous: “Scavino’s 2010 Barolo Carobric stands out for its focus and clarity. Sweet red berries, mint, crushed rocks and rose petals are some of the many notes that take shape in the glass. The 2010 Carobric is bright, aromatically lifted and gorgeous in its precision. Today the 2010 is an infant, but it has gorgeous intensity and length. All the elements are in the right place. This is one of the best vintages of Carobric I can recall tasting. As a reminder, Carobric is a blend of fruit from Cannubi, Rocche di Castiglione and Bric del Fiasc.” (AG)
2010 Paolo Scavino Barolo Monvigliero (Pre-Arrival) $74.99
Lowest Price in the Country! 95+ Points Antonio Galloni, Vinous: “A round, supple Barolo, the 2010 Barolo Monvigliero is beautifully expressive. Today the Monvigliero is incredibly primary and intense, especially in its fruit, while the typical Monvigliero notes aren’t fully developed. The 2010 is going to need some time to come together, but it is a beauty. With time in the glass some of the more floral and savory notes that are typical of this site begin to emerge, but only with great reluctance. Today the Monvigliero impresses for its texture, silkiness and exceptional overall balance.” (AG)
