De Conciliis Selim Spumante Brut NV
Elegant, fresh, and mineral-laden, the De Conciliis NV Selim Spumante Brut is a rare Campanian sparkler. Bursting with tropical and orchard fruits, the Selim dances across the palate with saline minerality and citrus zest; it’s elegant and lively, an ideal wine for aperitivi. A blend of 55% Aglianico, 35% Fiano and 10% Barbera grown in mineral-rich clay soils, this wine ferments in stainless steel to preserve its terroir, getting its second fermentation in the bottle; after some months, the yeast is disgorged and a small dosage is added. Intense, unusual and beautifully balanced, Selim is a fitting tribute to its namesake, Miles Davis.
Mastroberardino Irpinia Rosato Lacrimarosa 2016 750ml
“Lacrimarosa” means “pink tear,” a nod to the pale blush color of this remarkably fragrant and delicious wine. Crushed berries and juicy stone fruits dance with peonies, fresh-cut herbs and river rocks in this dry, welcoming ’16 rosato. Nicely textured and altogether delicious, this $23 wine is a lively introduction to the legendary Mastroberardino estate. This mono-varietal Aglianico rosato derives from the Irpinia region in Campania; Mastroberardino’s southwestern-facing plot is composed of stony, clay and limestone soil. Soft pressing gives the wine its pale pink color; grapes ferment and age in stainless steel to maintain a strong sense of terroir.
De Conciliis Donnaluna Fiano 2014 750ml

Weighty yet fresh, this wine whooshes across the palate with mineral-driven energy, building to a saline finish that complements the wine’s sweet inner perfume of honeyed fruit. Heftier and more complex than Pinot Grigio, wilder than Chardonnay, De Conciliis’ organic Fiano ferments and ages in stainless steel to better articulate its unique Campanian terroir; it’s one of our favorite value Italian white wines.
Tormaresca Castel del Monte Rosso Trentangeli 2012 750ml
This might be your new go-to red!

A blend of organically grown 70% Aglianico, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 10% Syrah deriving from the Bocca di Lupo estate in Minervino Murge, grapes ferment in temperature-controlled stainless steel for about two weeks, and the wine ages in barrels for a year, followed by eight months of bottle rest before release.
