Duc Di Saragnano, Toscano Sangiovese $19.99

 95 pts Luca Maroni (2020)
The story of the Duca di Saragnano dates back to the middle ages. It is a story of nobility. In a time when Arab marauders were invading all of Southern Italy and conquering much of the Tyrrhenian coastline, one noble local stood to protect the land, the people and his family. It is the noble Duke of Saragnano that gravely fought against the Arab army, who inspired this line of wines.
Although the story ends in the Duke's defeat, it’s his legend that we honor him with a toast.
Young dark-red colour with purple hints. Sangiovese has a bouquet rich in violets,
pure black fruits and delicate perceptions of vanilla and toasty oak. Full and round body with soft tannins. 

Basilicato Aglianico, Vulture DOC $22.99
Aglianico “alli-yawn-nico” is a full-bodied red wine which is found almost exclusively
in Southern Italy in the regions of Campania and Basilicata.
Aglianico is a thick-skinned, black grape that loves hot, sunny climates. It's widely cultivated in the southern Italy regions of Campania and Basilicata. It produces dry full-bodied wines with aromas/ flavors of pepper, black cherry, game, spice, and plum.

Azienda Di Campiano Primitivo Reserva $29.99

Intense ruby red with garnet reflections. Intense fragrances reminiscent of red fruit jam, black currant and cherry jam. Ethereal notes of cocoa, licorice and vanilla.
