Scott Conant's New Trio of Wines Debut! Three Inaugural Bottles, Only $17 to $45!
November 4, 2019
A Note from Sergio

You might think of Scott Conant as a celebrity chef who has appeared on multiple television shows and a best-selling cookbook author, but I think of him as one of my best friends--and my roommate in 1999, who saw all my excitement, anxiety, and glee as I opened IWM twenty years ago last month. Scott and I see eye to eye on many of my core passions: great Italian food, amazing Italian wines, and the mystical ability that food and wine have of bringing people together. Just as I was, Scott was raised by a family who uses meals as the glue that holds people together, and a family who understands that wine is more than something nice to drink--it's often an essential component.

When I think about IWM's beginnings, I think of Scott, and I'm very excited that Scott has chosen to add winemaking to his many ventures! Today, I'm proud to debut three of Scott's wines: SC Wines' Ayla, a Pinot Grigio from Friuli; Karya, a Super Tuscan from Sant'Angelo in Colle; and Sprezza, a Barolo. Before today, you could enjoy these wines only in Scott's restaurants, and I take it as a great favor that Scott has let me introduce his wines before anyone else gets a chance. We poured Scott's Sprezza Barolo at IWM's 20th anniversary celebration last week, and people loved it--so now it's your turn!

Honeyed citrus, crisp orchard fruits, white wildflowers, and lush tropical fruits waft from the glass of this delicate ’17 Pinot Grigio. Medium-bodied and zesty, this refreshing white layers its delicious fruits with elegant minerality, building to a clean finish. Perfect for aperitivi, this Pinot Grigio is also ideal for luncheon salads, roasted chicken and seafood. Deriving from ten acres of gravelly, sandstone-rich vineyards, whole clusters of Pinot Grigio grapes ferment in temperature-controlled steel, and the wine ages on the lees for four months in steel before bottling and resting for three additional months. more info

Price: $18.99

Brambly berries and succulent plums dance against a backdrop of olive tapenade, cedar wood, fresh loam, and a dusting of baking spices in the delicious, ultra-ripe ’16 Rosso Toscana. This wine marries Sangiovese’s trademark acidity with Merlot’s luscious fruits to create a complex, compelling and seamless whole; rich fruits meld with savory notes in the wine’s sustained finish. A blend of 90% Sangiovese and 10% Merlot grown in marly, mineral-rich clay soils, the grapes for this wine ferment for 20 days in temperature-controlled stainless steel; the wine ages in steel for six months before bottling and resting for four additional months. more info
