La Roncaia Picolit 2015 375ml
In Stock
Price: $54.99
Special Price: $29.99

A monovarietal Picolit, this luscious dessert wine is a tradition in Friuli. Succulent orchard, tropical and stone fruits dance on a bed of potpourri, baking spices, crushed river rocks, acacia honey and wild herbs in this enchanting, lively ’15 Picolit. For all its unabashed richness, this dessert wine shows remarkable balance, melding its intense dry extract with keen acidity in a complex palate that effortlessly marries its sweet fruits with savory minerality and herbs. Deriving from vineyards with marly soils in the hills of Attimis, the Picolit grapes dry for two months and then one half ferments in temperature-controlled stainless steel and the other half in barrel; after assembling the final blend, the wine ages for a year in barrique and rests in bottle for six months prior to release. more info

Michele Chiarlo Barolo Tortoniano 2012 750ml

Price: $59.99
Special Price: $39.99

Christopher Deas, Italian Wine Merchants: “This wine is now in a magic spot with eight years of maturity from the 2012 vintage, as the tertiary flavors are just entering the profile. The Tortoniano label is best known for its soft inviting fruit and elegance, showcasing a more feminine side of Barolo. Well, it’s silky texture and exotic nuances are on full display today. The nose reveals notes of dried cherries, roses, potpourri, and black tea. On the palate, sweet cherries, blood orange, cinnamon, cocoa, tobacco, a touch of smoke, leather, truffle, and underbrush all join the party, adding an umami element to this richly layered expression. The wine becomes more herbal and tea-like on a dry and coiled finish that hints at further aging. But for today, what’s not to like? This is simply fun drinking, seamless Barolo, delivered at a ridiculously fair price. Let the wine breathe an hour or two for best results. more info

Peppery spices, crushed herbs, violet petals, warm loam, and a kiss of oak frame the juicy red and blue fruits in this zesty, full-throttle ’15 Chianti Classico.

Deriving from grapes grown in in the San Casciano Val di Pesa located in the western section of the Chianti Classico zone, this Chianti Classico is mostly Sangiovese with about 10% Merlot; grapes enjoy temperature-controlled fermentation, and the wine ages for a year, half in French oak barrels and half in steel, before bottling and resting for six more months. more info

Special Price: $42.99

Balsamic herbs, flinty soil, warm spices, potpourri and berry jam frame the pure, opulent red and blue fruits in the ’15 Bocca di Lupo. Balanced and beautiful, this wine’s firm tannins cling to the cheeks as elegant minerality and fresh acidity propel the wine’s resonant finish. After allowing the Aglianico grapes to ripen fully, Tormaresca vinifies them in temperature-controlled stainless steel, and the wine ferments in barrique for fifteen months and ages in the bottle for two years before release. While Aglianico frequently requires time in the cellar before enjoyment, this bottle from Antinori's Tormaresca allows for earlier approachability, yet it sacrifices nothing for longevity. more info

Price: $64.99
Special Price: $44.99

Christopher Deas, Italian Wine Merchants: “No doubt about it, this is a crowd-pleasing expression that seduces with one pull of the cork. It is simply another exciting expression from the dynamic duo. The Méo touch and style is here, generous fruit, aided by the ripe vintage, smooth tannins, silky texture, all with quiet and unobtrusive underlying structure. The wine showcases another side of Pinot from here, there is some darker fruit to marry with the reds, showcasing nuances of black cherry, wild berries, plum, dried herbs, lack tea and lavender. With air the wine really fills out in the glass and gains in texture but remaining light on its feet. We have tasted this wine on several occasions since its release. Our first instinct was to pair it with goat cheese, but perhaps the surprise pairing was Mussels at Harvey Cedars Fish Bar, the wine picked up on the herbs, parmesan, and butter. However, food is not a necessity it pairs nicely with great conversation. Enjoy this now – it is stunning.” more info

PRE-ARRIVAL
Price: $59.99
Special Price: $44.99

Christopher Deas, Italian Wine Merchants: “Castello di Ama’s super cuvee is a blend of four vineyards including the prized Bellavista and La Casuccia and it is a pecial expression from the vaunted vintage. It begins with a pronounced nose of black cherry and olives that let you know you are in Tuscany. On the palate this is a whole lot of wine. A mouthful of soft and generous fruit coats the palate, then under that layer of fruit is the signature minerality and structure of this beloved wine.  You can expect nuances of black cherries, blackberry, plum, licorice, mint, tobacco leaf, iron minerality and baked earth. There are shades of flavor here, but it is the signature black cherry note that is so seductive and compelling.  This is a whole lot of wine you might describe as big and masculine Chianti with a lot of fruit, structure, and layers.  It can be enjoyed today with aeration, but the best is yet to come. “ more info

Bodega Chacra Pinot Noir Cincuenta y Cinco 2019 750ml
Price: $54.99
Special Price: $44.99

Christopher Deas, Italian Wine Merchants: “The Cincuenta y Cinco, pure Pinot Noir from a vineyard planted in 1955 as captured in its name - Cincuenta y Cinco). It is vibrant expression that screams Bodega Chacra right from the glass on the nose and palate. All the signature red fruit nuances are there, it is an explosion of red and blue fruit with bright cherries, raspberries, pomegranate, cranberries, a touch of citrus along with the perfect accent of crushed flowers, dried herbs and earth. For IWM team, this is the most delicate, finessed and arguably purest expression to date – at just 12% alcohol, this is a wine that you can drink the whole bottle (as we did) and not feel the aftermath. While elegant and light on its feet, there is a concentrated core that persistently builds and lingers, echoing throughout the palate that says Cincuenta y Cinco. With air-time, the wine gains weight and texture and it is our recommendation that it should be allowed to breathe. What can we say, we love this Burgundian-like expression that remains uniquely Patagonia and continues to make you rethink what the noble varietal can achieve outside the Cote d’Or. Well done, once again.” more info

Price: $59.99

Christopher Deas, Italian Wine Merchants: “Honestly, I did not believe there could be a wine that could surpass the 2015 release, we still have many clients asking for the wine today. However, the 2016 Badia a Passignano lives up to the vintage hype. For IWM, it is not Tignanello or even Solaia that should be watched, it is this Chianti Classico Gran Selezione that demands attention, as few wines have improved so greatly over the past few years and are delivered at this price point. It is a serious crowd pleaser, jaw-droppingly delicious right out of the bottle with four years of age. Ripe black cherries, even macerated cherries, plum and once you get past the generous fruit, you begin to experience wild herbs, cedar, earth and stony minerality. Stunningly elegant and inviting with its almost creamy texture, but there is balance with freshness and acidity. It has plenty of years ahead of it but hard to resist today. This is a MUST stop on the Chianti trail with dinner at Osteria di Passignano - right there in the historic vineyards. Simply magical – that goes for the wine, vineyard and restaurant.” more info
