NV Franciacorta DOCG Brut Ferghettina

"Enticing aromas of pressed wild flower, chamomile and white stone fruit lead the nose. The bright palate delivers ripe yellow apple, white peach and dried herb alongside an elegant, lively perlage. A lemon-drop note gives it a tangy finish." -Kerin O'Keefe

2016 Vermentino di Gallura Jankara

Medium to full bodied, fresh elegant and supple with a balanced depth of flavors: apple, pear and ripe pineapple mingle with hints of honey, sage and rosemary.  Finishes dry on the palate.  Pairs especially well with chicken, and rich seafood  dishes.

2016 Barbera d'Alba Vignota Conterno Fantino

"Although this is a cooler, less Barbera-friendly vintage compared to the lavish 2015 edition, the 2016 Barbera d'Alba Vignota pulls off a lot of the same magic. This wine is generous and forthcoming with dark fruit stacked wide and tall. The grapes are harvested from five separate vineyard sites. Each is vinified separately and blended only after the malolactic fermentations are finished. Bouquet highlights include salty mineral notes that make a perfect pairing partner to fatty foods like deviled eggs or bite-sized sandwiches with mayonnaise. The alcohol is high at 15%, but it also serves to keep the palate stripped clean." - Monica Larner

2015 Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Boscarelli

"Subtle aromas of ripe forest berry, scorched earth, exotic spice and a balsamic whiff of camphor lead the nose. The linear palate offers dried black cherry, ground pepper and a hint of grilled herb alongside fine-grained tannins." -Kerin O'Keefe

2016 langhe Nebbiolo Ginestreto Conterno Fantino

"This is the best edition of Ginestrino I have tasted. It is also one of the best Langhe Nebbiolos in recent memory. I recommend you buy the 2016 Langhe Nebbiolo Ginestrino not by the bottle but by the case load. Conterno Fantino does not make a so-called base or village Barolo. Instead, it offers this wine as if it were a Barolo. It is released early (with 40,000 bottles this year) to showcase the delicious primary fruit. The bouquet offers beautiful layering of wild berry, spice, cola, anise seed and rose hip. The tannins are silky and smooth." - Monica Larner

2014 Barolo Ludo DOCG Einaudi

"Bolstered by a sheen of oak, this red also evokes cherry, plum, earth, tobacco and leather flavors. Rich and fruity, balanced by firm tannins that linger on the finish. Best from 2021 through 2033."

2013 Carignano Del Sulcis Superiore DOC Terre Brune Santadi

"The 2013 Carignano del Sulcis Superiore Terre Brune (95% Carignano and 5% Bovaleddu) is a distinctive and beautifully intense red wine. The aromas are bright and vertical in this balanced vintage, to the point of being penetrating and pungent (in a positive way). It offers compelling aromas of candied cherry, kirsch and dark plum. Spice, tar and leather are introduced with seamless integration. It sees 18 months of oak. The wine is firm and lasting in terms of mouthfeel, but its texture is never too thick or heavy. This is one one of the highest expressions of Sardinian vinous elegance. It should easily age over the next decade. Some 90,000 bottles were produced." - Monica Larner
