Hilberg Pasquero Vareij 2016 750ml
A rare blend of Brachetto and Barbera, Vareij marries floral aromatics with bracing acidity and elegant structure. Fistfuls of rose and violet petals frame the succulent red and blue fruits of the extremely pretty ’16 Vareij; baking spices, newly turned earth, savory minerals and wild herbs provide a compelling backdrop. This wine glides across the palate, gathering a sneaky power as it builds to a balanced, elegant and sustained finish--it’s a sheer delight! Mostly Brachetto with about 40% Barbera, the biodynamically tended grapes ferment for seven to fifteen days in open-top stainless steel, and the wine ages for about a year in stainless steel to preserve the fruit and the terroir.
De Conciliis Falanghina 2018 750ml
Exotic flower petals, lime zest, spice, honeyed citrus, and warm stones frame the luscious tropical and crisp orchard fruits in this lively ’18 Falanghina. Fresh yet full-bodied, fruit-laden yet minerally, this white has a lot of personality, which it gets from an extended aging process on the fine lees. A persistent minerality and fine acidity fill out the lingering, clean finish. Deriving from organically tended Falanghina vines grown in calcareous clay soils, grapes ferment for 20 days in stainless steel, and the wine ages in steel for six months, before resting in bottle for three months prior to release.
Soter North Valley Highland Rose 2014 750ml
No shrinking violet, this Rosé from Oregon’s Willamette Valley this beautiful Pinot Rose that bursts with tart berries, hints of brioche and vanilla. Crafted from 80% Pinot Noir, and the remainder Chardonnay and Gewürztraminer, this wine offers complexity, fantastic aromatics and the kind of minerality that winemaker Tony Soter and Oregon have grown famous for. And outstanding match with anything from antipasti to pasta and lean red meats, this wine is also a tremendous value at its price point.
Domaine Michelot Bourgogne Blanc 2015 750ml
Rich, pulsating, and delicious this ’15 Bourgogne Blanc embraces its Cinderella growing season with acidic verve and an opulent texture. Very nearly a Meursault, this organically grown wine layers classic Meursault notes of lemon curd, lime leaf, saline spray, stone fruits, and hazelnut. Powerful but delineated, this creamy wine glides to a resonant crescendo, and as terrific as it is right now, it’ll drink wonderfully over the medium term. Deriving from clay-rich, mineral-laden parcels located within the Meursault appellation, the grapes for this wine ferment in temperature-controlled tanks, and the wine ages for ten to twelve months in barrique, 15% new, before resting in tanks for five or six months before bottling.
Xavier Weisskopf Le Rocher des Violettes Montlouis Petillant Originel 2015 750ml
Bracing, elegant and food-friendly, the ’15 Petillant Originel holds its white-flesh fruits in an acidic grip that’s sprinkled with citrus zest and topped with flower petals and smoke. Fine perlage tickles the tongue as this wine dances to a lingering, mineral-laden finish that cleanses, refreshes and hugs the palate. Deriving from 40-year-old Chenin vines that are organically grown in limestone-rich soil, grapes ferment in temperature-controlled stainless steel; the wine is then bottled and rests on the lees for two years before the first disgorgement, after which the wine is disgorged every two months for a total of six disgorgements. Petillant Originel is a tiny sparkling wine appellation that stipulates extremely low yields, excludes the addition of yeast or dosage, and requires the grapes have a potential alcohol level of 11.5%; the resulting wines are pure, unadulterated joy!
San Giuliano Fiore di Marcorino Barbera d'Alba 2016 750ml
The ’16 Fiore di Marcorino Barbera d'Alba wraps its succulent cherries and berries around a core of savory earth, saline minerals, and balsamic herbs; peppery spices and subtle wildflower petals round out the entrancing nose. Medium-bodied and brightly acidic, this Barbera glides with a silky feel into its lingering, chocolatey, mineral-laden finish. San Giuliano, run by Giulio Pastura and wife Mariella, is a collection of vineyards ranging across about seventeen acres in the Piemonte zones of Roero, Asti, Neive and Barbaresco. This wine derives from vines ranging from fifteen to sixty years old grown in a southern-facing parcel of limestone marl. This wine ferments for 7 to 10 days in stainless steel and ages in barrels for ten to twelve months before bottling.
Vestini Campagnano Pallagrello Bianco 2017 750ml
2017 saw a lowered grape yield across Italy, and the smaller harvest makes for a denser, more intense, and more mineral-laden Pallagrello Bianco bottling. Zesty lemon spritz, rain-spattered white wildflowers, touches of spice and herbs, and a kiss of minerals frame the juicy stone and orchard fruits in this lively, round white from Campania. A true wine from off the beaten path, this tender white will please wine-lovers who love their whites to be wild with elegance. This mono-varietal Pallagrello Bianco comes from organically tended parcels of clayey vineyards; grapes ferment with natural yeasts in temperature-controlled stainless steel, and the wine ages for six months in barrique, followed by six months in bottle before release. Just 840 cases made.
Le Mortelle Botrosecco Maremma Toscana DOC 2016 750ml
A benchmark growing year, 2016 offered Tuscan vine-growers ideal warm weather, and the ’16 Botrosecco bursts with notes of sun-warmed red and blue fruits, hot stones, melted chocolate, balsamic herbs and a smear of berry jam. Open-knit and opulent, this wine snuggles the palate with chewy tannins, silky acidity, and elegant minerals that linger on the deeply pleasurable finish. Packing a punch at its under $30 price point, the ’16 Botrosecco is a must-have red. A blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Cabernet Franc, Botrosecco’s grapes ferment in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks for about two weeks; the wine ages for a year in stainless steel and rests in bottle for a few months before release.
Rockburn Riesling 2007 750ml
COS Nero di Lupo 2015 750ml
Nero d'Avola, indigenous to Sicilia, makes a deep purple, weighty and brooding wine that glints with dark cherry and wafts with minerals; in its Nero di Lupo, COS turns that grape into something that’s magical. Leather, underbrush, espresso and spices frame the juicy red and brambly black fruits of this ’15 Nero di Lupo. Balancing its lushness with chewy tannins and a serious core of minerality, this wine glides across the palate with feral grace. An ideal companion to grilled lamb or hearty stews, this organic Nero d’Avola ferments with natural yeasts and ages in cement; it’ll drink for the next five years, if not longer.
