TREVISIOL PROSECCO EXTRA DRY, NV

This sparkling wine has subtle floral and fruit aromas that make the palate deliciously light and playful. It is not harsh; rather, it tickles the throat with peachy softness, and flecked with minerality that remains simple in the best of ways.

BTG $ 7.00                                  Retail $18.99

 

LUCIANO SANDRONE DOLCETTO  D’ALBA, 2006

Deep ruby red. Inky aromas of black cherry and bitter chocolate. Superconcentraded and sweed, with intense black cherry and violet flavors firmed by strong acidity. A rather powerful style of Dolcetto. The sweet finish hints of bitter almond.

TENUTA DI ARCENO PRIMA VOCE, 2005 Super Tuscan

 75% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Cabernet Franc, 3% Syrah

The nose first exudes cedar, fresh vanilla root and a hint of ginger, followed by aromas of ripe plums and white chocolate. Tannins are soft, silky and balanced and lead to an explosion of candied cherries on the palate. The long lingering finish of forest floor, earth and spice transports you to our Tenuta di Arceno vineyards in autumn, as they reveal and express their terroir.

BTG $ 7.50                                 Retail $19.99

 

 

GIUSEPPE LEONARDI VALPOLICELLA RIPASSO SUPERIORE, 2006

Dark, lush cramberry notes, with smoky chocolate that epitomizes the lovely characteristics of Corvina. The complexity is reminiscent of amarone.

BTG $ 8.50                                 Retail $21.99

 

 

TRE DONNE MOSCATO D’ASTI, 2006

Medium straw yellow with slight green highlights, very fine perlage and consistent crown in yhr mousse. Fine and delicate youthful character floral and fruity with notes of hawthorn, sage and citrus, pleaseant and fresh with a bittersweet finish.

BTG $ 8.75                                  Retail $22.99
