Fontodi Meriggio 2018 750ml
Fontodi Meriggio 2018 750ml
Price: $36.99

Fontodi claims that the ’18 Meriggio Bianco is the most complex and freshest that it’s ever seen, and we have to agree--this wine is fascinating! Juicy yet finessed, ripe yet steely, intense yet focused, the ’18 Meriggio has a lot to give white wine lovers, layering its succulent stone and crisp orchard fruits with crushed river rocks, fresh herbs, white wildflowers and a dusting of peppery spices. Weighty yet nimble, this wine whooshes across the palate, propelled by its twin engines of savory minerality and keen acidity, as it builds to a resonant, complex and refreshing finish. Enjoyable upon release, this sophisticated white will drink beautifully over the medium term. Deriving from Fontodi’s organically tended, north-facing La Rota vineyard, this wine is mostly old-vine Sauvignon Blanc blended with about 10% Trebbiano; grapes ferment in temperature-controlled stainless steel, and the wine ages on the lees for six months, mostly in stainless steel, with a small percentage in amphora. Only 300 cases will be imported to the USA. more info

Gaja Chardonnay Rossj Bass 2017 750ml
Price: $99.00

Richly perfumed, the ’17 Rossj-Bass bursts from the glass in a shower of tropical and orchard fruits, white wildflowers, exotic spices, toasted nuts and a touch of honeyed ginger. This Rossj-Bass vintage manages to feel luscious and bracing, complementing its sappy fruits with a core of nervy acidity as it glides across the palate to a sustained, creamy finish--it’s utterly captivating! Named for Angelo Gaja's youngest daughter, Rossana, known as Rossj for short, this Chardonnay derives from the Rossj vineyard as well as several other estate-owned vineyards that range along Piemonte’s swirling hills. A blend of 95% Chardonnay and 5% Sauvignon Blanc, Rossj-Bass ferments in temperature-controlled stainless steel for about a month and then ages for six months in barrique to create an elegant, balanced wine with admirable depth, zesty acidity, and a lingering, satisfying finish. more info

Cantina Terlano Terlaner I Grande Cuvee 2013 750ml
Cantina Terlano Terlaner I Grande Cuvee 2013 750ml
Price: $239.00

A top-tier release from Cantina Terlan that saw its inaugural vintage in 2011, the ’13 Terlaner I Grande Cuvée gleams a brilliant straw yellow in the glass, a gem-like hue that hints at the wine’s multi-faceted beauty. This pure, intense, and layered wine bursts with orchard and citrus fruits, smoky minerality, peppery spices, crushed chamomile and fresh-cut herbs in a kaleidoscopic palate that changes by turns, revealing dizzying layers of flavors and textures. Exceptionally elegant, the ’13 Terlaner I Grande Cuvée lays its succulent fruit on a sturdy mineral spine that revs up its intensity as it glides to a lingering, impressive finish--this bottling is a fine-boned, aristocratic and deceptively powerful take on long-aging, high altitude Italian white wine. This collector Alto Adige white has the legs for the long haul; you can drink it now with liberal decanting, but it’ll hit its stride in a few years, when it’ll drink for a decade, likely longer. A blend composed of 90% Pinot Bianco, 7% Chardonnay, and 3% Sauvignon Blanc, the grapes for this wine ferment in whole clusters in large wooden vats; the wine ages on the lees for a year in botti before the final blend is composed and the wine is bottled. more info
Cantina Terlano Terlaner Classico Alto Adige 1986 750ml
Cantina Terlano Terlaner Classico Alto Adige 1986 750ml
Price: $249.99

This Pinot Bianco, Chardonnay, and Sauvignon Blanc blend offers indescribable beauty, and this ’86 bottle, wonderful vintage for this wine, is perfect for drinking right now. Honeyed, ripe fruits, toasted nuts, minerals, dried and fresh flowers, and many more notes will be evident in this mature Alto Adige wine that will bring to mind a textured Alsatian white and a mature white Burgundy. A cooperative of more than 100 wine growers located in Alto Adige’s Dolomite Mountains, Cantina Terlato has more than 2,000 years of winemaking history on its side. It also has some extraordinary terroir. Sheltered in a hollow of the Alps, Terlano’s 300 acres boast south-facing vineyards that rise from 820-3,000 feet above sea level, but best of all, the soil is this volcanic rock that retains heat, allowing the vines to stay warm when it gets cold and sloughing off water when it rains. This cooperative makes some of the best whites in all of Italy. more info
