Deal Of The Month

2018 La Giustiniana ‘Lugarara’

La Giustiniana is one of the oldest wineries in Gavi. Cortese grapes have been grown here since the XV Century. The 2018 La Giustiniana Gavi di Gavi ‘Lugarara’, one of two Grand Cru vineyards on the estate, is made using hand-harvested grapes, planted on calcareous soils. An aroma of pear, apple, lemon zest, and roasted almonds is matched with vibrant acidity and a crisp apple flavor, perfect with finfish.

Tenuta delle Terre Nere

We have had lots of fine wines from Tenuta delle Terre Nere over many vintages, and after reading this quote from Marco de Grazia, “All in all, we would hazard saying that the 2017 reds will rival those of the finest vintages we’ve had at Tenuta delle Terre Nere”, we decided a tasting was the perfect thing to do. Come in and sample these wines on Saturday June 8th at both shops.

Orlando Pecchenino

Amazing new vintages from Orlando Pecchenino have just arrived. The 2017 Pecchenino Bianco is a marvelous blend of Chardonnay and Sauvignon that takes the best of each variety and offers a near perfect seafood wine. The 2017 Pecchenino ‘San Luigi’ is bright and juicy, perfect for lighter red sauce dishes. The 2015 Pecchenino Nebbiolo ‘Bricco Ravera’ resembles a true old style Barolo—tar and roses, and the 2014 Pecchenino Barolo ‘San Giuseppe’ is an exceptional value for its quality.

2014 Pecchenino Barolo‘San Giuseppe’ 58.00 48.14VS

Cahors

With summer barbecues just around the corner, try a new wine to match the spicy meats from southwestern France—Cahors. The village has a history dating back to Celtic times. By law, Cahors must be made of at least 70 percent Malbec, with only Merlot and Tannat allowed as blending grapes. Once called the ‘black wine’ of Cahors, one can barely see their fingers through a glass. These big red wines stand up to foie gras, truffles, game, duck confit, and the regional cassoulet. There is a core of acidity that cleanses the palate, and a faintly smoky style that marries with spices of barbecue sauces.
