Fabio Ita, Bravo Wines!!
Balestrivalda Soave Classico $19.99
From vineyards in the original `classico` zone of Soave on calcareous soils,
this aromatic white has an abundance of stone fruits and blossom on the nose.
The palate has a crisp acidity to balance the ripe peach and mineral character and finishes long and elegant.  Serve with Burrata and organic beef tomatoes.  Organic

Signano Vernaccia Di San Gimignano $19.99
Floral notes, citrus fruit, and a dry, crisp quality dominate the flavor of Vernaccia wine.
It's a full-bodied wine with medium to high acidity levels and a notable aftertaste that suggests minerals or almonds. This element is due to the soils in which it's grown, rich with both sand and clay.

Corvina Veronese Corte Cariano Brunelli $18.99
This unusual example of Corvina Veronese – the Veneto area’s most important grape variety, vinified on its own – is a successful expression of the family’s age-old traditional method of drying the grapes for a brief period.
Corte Cariano is ideal with flavorful soups or dishes with mushrooms or truffle,
fresh pasta dishes with meat sauces or richly flavored red meat recipes.

Tenuta Colombarola Rosso Gandinaia Syrah $22.99
Bright ruby-red with slight garnet highlights, slightly dried black berries (marasca cherry, elderberry, blueberry and blackcurrant) with a pleasant hint of wild strawberries. Floral scents (pinks, violets, dried red rose). A good structure, elegant and well-balanced alcohol, softness and acidity; pleasant and round with intense, soft tannins well blended into the structure. The aftertaste starts off reminiscent of black fruits and golden-leaf tobacco, and closes with a long, rich finish of vanilla and spice.

Castelvecchio Barberesco $28.99
Nicely intense in color with orange reflections, ample and ethereal, this wine expresses all the softness of the well-aged Nebbiolo with smooth tannins and scents of violet. Full body with excellent evolution potential.
Meats, cheeses, and first courses. Recommend to open some time before serving.


The Beers!!
Paulener Munchner Lager, 4 pack 500mL $9.99
4.9% ABV
Paulaner has brought back a classic German pilsner, that delivers a clean crisp taste.
Our Bavarian brewers are particularly experienced in crafting classic Pilsner biers.

Adroit Theory EBK Hazy Imperial IPA, 4pack 16 oz. $21.99
ABV = 8%
Pillowy, semi-sweet body with slight bitterness for balance,
tropical aromatics with notes of orange + lemon peel. 

Epic S.O.B. Coffee Stout, 6 pack 12 oz. $16.99
Son of a Baptist is an 8% ABV imperial stout.
It is not barrel aged like its father, Big Bad Baptist; instead its flavor profile was designed to highlight the complex and unique flavors of small batch coffees. Instead of sourcing a coffee that would play well in a beer we sought out creative and innovative roasters, then asked them which beans they’re passionate about. Each resulting release of Son of a Baptist is widely different, depending on the coffee selected. Some are fruity and sweet with notes of jam and chocolate, others are rich and earthy with a big roasted finish. Each limited release will return to the Roaster’s home market where the beer and the coffee can be sampled side by side.
