NV Soligo Prosecco Brut,Veneto
Straw-yellow with greenish tinges. Fruity and flowery with apple overtones.A right balance between acidity and sugar turn this
sparkling wine into a very delicate and intense product.
BTG $7.25 Retail $17.99

2011 Pra Soave Classico,Veneto
Opens with gorgeous aromatics that lead to crisp, beautifully articulated fruit. The persistence, balance and clean, minerally finish add up to an absolutely delicious bottle of Soave. Needless to say, it is highly recommended. 90pts Robert parker

100% Barbera grapes grown in the “Valletta”, vineyard of the Rivetti family farm in the Rivetti area of the Municipality of Neive. Calcareous clay soils with south-westerly exposure.Colour: deep ruby red.Perfume: intense, vinous with a pervasive aroma of ripe fruit. Flavour: fresh and pervasive.

2010 Brigaldara Valpolicella Classico,Veneto
Corvina 40% Corvinone 20% Rondinella, Molinara e Sangiovese 40%
Bright ruby. Vibrant aromas of redcurrant, blackberry and candied violet on the knockout nose. Quite juicy on the palate, with floral red berry flavors given laser-like precision by lovely harmonious acidity. This very well balanced wine could probably use a bit more complexity but it’s so clean and clear that you’ll find it hard to put the glass down. It also puts most other Valpolicellas to shame, hence my high score.
91 pts Stephen Tanzer
BTG $6.00 Retail $14.99

2009 Canalicchio Di Sopra Rosso Di Montalcino, Tuscany
100% Sangiovese
The 2009 Rosso di Montalcino is a gorgeous wine bursting with dark red fruit. It shows plenty of harmony and fine overall balance. Sweet spices and flowers linger on the warm, radiant finish. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2017. 89 pts Robert Parker
