The Wines!!
KALTERN PINOT GRIGIO $16.99
This Pinot Grigio is a full-bodied white wine with a straw-yellow hue, a floral nose, and pleasantly smooth character.
With a little aging, undertones of nuts and honey develop.
This wine pairs perfectly with mushroom dishes, fish and seafood. We also recommend it as an aperitif.


CASALE DEL GIGLIO VIOGNIER $19.99
A brilliant yellow wine whose distinctive floral overtones of white rose petals, linden blossom, acacia and broom
join the signature aromas of ripe peach and apricot on the palate.
A perfectly balanced confection which draws slowly to a close on a fresh, aromatic finish.


DOLCETTO "FOSCO" DIANO D'ALBA SALVANO $18.99
Fosco comes in beautiful packaging complete with a big red wax seal on the front of the bottle.
The wine shows rich concentration and aromas of red fruit and a touch of natural rubber or tar.
In the mouth, it shows tart, crisp and simple characteristics.


BEGALI VALPOLICELLA RIPASSO $16.99
There’s a lot going on: background tones of balsam herb, rosemary and black olive
follow straightforward aromas of dried fruit and prune.
A pretty touch of eucalyptus springs forth.
The wine is incredibly light, buoyant and lively despite the elaborate Ripasso process


BOSCO MONTEPULCIANO D'ABRUZZI "PAN" $21.99 
It was in the late 1800s that the Bosco family came to viticultural prominence in Abruzzo, near to the city of Pescara.  Today they have a state-of-the-art winemaking facility in Nocciano and a reputation for making some of the best wines in the DOC.  This bottling is 100% Montepulciano aged 18-24 months in small barriques.  The influence of wood brought the god of wood, Pan, to  mind (the family surname, “bosco’ = “woods in Italian, hence the name).  Dark red fruit notes, with plum, chocolate and a touch of peppery spice. Ideal with summer grills and pastas, in cooler weather, with roasts and stews.

Montepulcaino is the grape that is grown in the Abruzzo region of Italy
(not to be confused with the town of Montepulciano, in Tuscany, where Sangiovese is grown.  Confused yet?). 
This is a powerful bottling owing to the 15% of Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend.  Very Italian!
