Fattoria Moretto’s Lambrusco is a party in a bottle. A fresh, bubbly red with notes of dark berries and herbs, there is no more joyful and refreshing vino rosso out there. Pair it up with just about anything for a sure win. And yes–it’s dry.
Our friends over at Sommariva have a real knack for pumping out quality Italian bubbles at a serious discount. Made from primarily Rabaso, a native Italian varietal rich in acidity, this bubbly exhibits ripe fruit notes alongside chalk minerality, all in perfect balance. Pairing this one with a triple cream cheese is a no-brainer.
Find yourself searching for some extra depth and complexity in your rosé? Why not look to Brunello for the answer. An astronomer by trade, Guiseppe Sesti found his calling crafting unbelievable expressions of Sangiovese. His rosato is no different. Deep, dark, and fresh, try it with roast pork.
Mirco Mariotti is doing something different - he’s farming wine in sand. That’s right, we’re talking beach wine. With vines just 300 meters from the Adriatic Sea, his wines possess a magical savoriness & salinity which is fully present in his Smarazen Bianco sparkling wine. It’s tangy, citrusy & amazing.
Not all Trebbiano is made equal, and the Jasci family makes that apparent with this elegant and refined bottling of Trebbiano Abruzzese. This variety of the popular Italian grape is considered the highest quality Trebbiano there is, perfectly reflecting the Mediterranean coast of Abruzzo, laced with citrus and floral notes.
Natural old-vine Frappato/Perricono from Etna's volcanic soils? In a liter bottles? Yes please! This Sicilian party bottle is super fun to share (or not). Think juicy plum and ripe blackberry, smoked rosemary and baking spices. These young stars of Italy's natural wine scene have Frank Cornelissen looking over his shoulder! Buy a few bottles before it's all gone. Bio wines this good sell fast!
Bolsignano’s Rosso is no sideshow to their Brunello — it’s great right now with a few years on it and would be even better after a stint in the cellar. This savory Sangiovese shines with minerality and aromas of Tuscan herbs and dried wildflowers. Drink it with juicy lamb chops and good friends.
Lifted aromatics and electric intensity - this is a bottle for a table covered in food and lined with friends. These vineyards have been in the family since 1860. Flavia and Giacomo have all that history behind them. They know how to get out of the way and let the vines sing a (Sicilian) pop song. Orange blossom, pink grapefruit, honeysuckle - this is very fun to drink!
