A rich golden hue in the glass, the ’13 Muffato Della Sala reflects its cool, classic growing year in its vivid acidity, precision, and breathtaking balance. Layers and layers of zesty citrus, luscious tropical, and crisp orchard fruits mingle with notes of honey, white wildflowers, and kisses of toasted nuts, pressed herbs, and saline minerals in this creamy wine’s dreamy, complex palate. Fresh and exciting, this Muffato Della Sala vintage feels clean and silky, unspooling across the palate with elegant minerality and kinetic energy as it builds to a succulent, sweet-tart finish. Derived primarily from grapes that have realized a considerable degree of concentration and been affected by noble rot, Muffato della Sala is mostly Sauvignon Blanc blended with Grechetto, Gewurztraminer, and Sèmillon. Grapes ferment for 18 days in temperature-controlled steel, and the wine ages for six months in oak before blending and bottling. Enjoyable now, the ’13 Muffato della Sala has considerable aging potential. more info

Christopher Deas, Italian Wine Merchants: “This is only the second vintage of this unique nectar that we have experienced, the first being the absolutely spellbinding 2012 release, and the wine is an 'experience wine' with a lot of history — in fact, 320 years of history, as the wine began in 1685, and became a favorite of Napoleon Bonaparte, Queen Victoria, and Thomas Jefferson and thus the legend was born. But more importantly, what you should know about this wine in the glass is that this is a profound sweet wine that is more about freshness and refinement thanks to its proximity to the sea and granite soils. This wine that clocks in at just 14% alcohol and is not cloying or heavy. The Muscat provides lift and a stunning bouquet of flowers that transcends to the palate. There are incredible citrus nuances from orange blossoms, dried apricots, and lemon zest to lemon wafers, all complemented with some brown spices. With aeration the wine does gain in texture, but always remains light on its feet. This wine makes you stop and stare and say, 'Remind why I do not drink sweet wines again.' There truly is nothing like seeing someone experience Château d’ Yquem or Quintarelli for the first time, and certainly Vin de Constance deserves a place there as well.” more info

Paolo Bea Sagrantino di Montefalco Passito 2007 375ml
In Stock
Price: $102.99

Concentrated, lush, and a little nervy, Bea’s ’07 Sagrantino di Montefalco Passito explodes with ripe blue and black fruits, warm chocolate, plum compote, raspberry jam, maple syrup, peppery herbs, and warm earth. Vibrant acidity ushers this semi-sweet dessert wine across the palate as chewy tannins cling to the cheeks; textured and supple, this Sagrantino Passito is a triumph. At once sweet and savory, this Passito-style wine holds the palate in delicious tension; it’s a pure, energetic, complicated expression of Sagrantino, and it could only come from Umbria’s master. Bea let the grapes dry for a few weeks, concentrating their sugars and flavors, and then let them ferment with skin contact for 39 days before aging for almost three years on the lees in stainless steel, and bottling the wine almost five years after harvest. Just 200 cases made. more info

Price: $119.00

Clean, warming, and intense, the Elisi Grappa wafts with scents of chocolate-wrapped cherry, orchard fruits, caramel, toasted nuts and a kiss of spice. This Grappa feels silky and rich in the mouth, suffusing the palate with flavor notes, elegant alcohol, and just a touch of sweetness--it’s a finely balanced liqueur that caps a delicious dinner with deft balance and perfect heat. Crafting the non-vintage Elisi is a two-step process; first, Berta distills the component grape pomaces in copper pots and ages the component wines in oak, and then the distillery assembles a blend of 50% five-year-old Barbera grappa with 25% each eight-year-old Nebbiolo Grappa and three-year-old Cabernet Sauvignon Grappa; after the blend has been composed, the Elisi Grappa ages for a year in oak. more info

Château d'Yquem’s skilled pickers hand-select the vines’ fully botrytized fruit, and yields are so low that each vine produces only one glass of wine. Vintage after vintage, Château d'Yquem continues to set the bar not merely for Sauternes, but for fine dessert wines around the world.
