2013 ALOIS LAGEDER PINOT GRIGIO
Trentino, Italy
Brilliant straw yellow with a green shimmer. Quite pronounced and expressive aroma with flowery and somewhat spicy notes. Rich flavoured in the mouth, with a slight smokiness at the back and a good, fresh finish.
BTG $6.75 Retail $15.99

2014 Tenuta Sant’Antonio Garganega, Chardonnay Scaia
Veneto. Italy
Pale straw yellow with greenish glints. Aroma of white acacia and jasmine flowers, bouquet of citrus fruits such as grapefruit, orange and pineapple, apple, pear and mango and a light touch of banana. Fresh and agreeable with a sustained acidity. Well-balanced softness and tang make it both inviting and intriguing.
BTG $6.00 Retail $12.99

2013 Poliziano Rosso di Montepulciano 80% Sangiovese – 20% Merlot
Juicy dark cherries, flowers, licorice, mint and spices burst from the glass in this expressive Rosso. Best of all, a fabulous value.
BTG $7.00 Retail $16.99

2013 Tenuta Sant’Antonio Corvina Scaia
Veneto, Italy
An unbelievable deal, and a wine that can be purchased by the case-load for those informal occasions at home when a simple glass of red wine accompanies you as you cook dinner or watch television. This is the ultimate downtime wine. The fruit is fresh and bright with white cherry, cassis, sweet almond and freshly milled white pepper. It’s appearance is compact with a light ruby hue.
BTG $6.50 Retail $14.99

2011 Domaine Giraud Chateauneuf du Pape les Premices
Southern Rhone, France
100% Grenache that’s aged one-third in 225-liter French oak barrels and the balance in concrete tank for one year. Gorgeous all around and made in a friendly, seamless style that’s hard to resist, it possesses a translucent ruby color that’s followed by a perfumed array of kirsch, raspberry, flowers, and red licorice. Incredibly pure and smooth, with no hard edges and a silk-like texture, it stays light and elegant on the palate and is a joy to drink. 93 Pts Robert Parker
