$22 Artisanal Prosecco, Valdicava's Baby Brunello, and More St-Émilion!
May 19, 2014
A Note from Sergio

If you've ever spent any time in Italy, you know how essential Prosecco is to Italians. Any moment is an excuse to open a bottle of Prosecco, and it's almost anathema to enjoy apperitivi without it. Italians believe that Prosecco livens the senses, readies the palate for the dishes to come and celebrates the beauty of eating. For these reasons, it's rare to have any kind of gathering that doesn't begin with that prototypical "pop!"

It seems as if the rest of the world is catching on to Italy's Prosecco habits; it's the Italian wine with the swiftest sales trajectory. Less expensive and less demanding than Champagne, Prosecco is delicious, fun and festive. Really, it's hard to go wrong with a good bottle of Prosecco. Today, I'm very happy to offer exactly that: Cima da Conegliano Prosecco Extra Dry. This is a fine bottle of $22 Veneto wine, delicate and light, refreshing and dry, it's a celebration waiting to happen--even if all you're celebrating is lunch.

I'm happy to pair this wine with Valdicava's 2011 Rosso di Montalcino, an exceptional bottle of $39 wine. Vincenzo Abbruzzese, one of the most demanding producers in very competitive Montalcino, decided not to make a Brunello in 2011 and put all his grapes into his Rosso. If you've never had Valdicava, this bottle is the best introduction, and if you know and love the estate, this bottle gives you a chance to enjoy its wines early and often.

Finally, I'm delighted to present more Saint-Émilion wines, all handpicked by Robin Kelley O'Connor (Click here to download the full PDF). All fully mature and carefully sourced, these wines let you drink in the rare beauty of this Bordeaux region with perfection.
