Let’s raise a glass with Chuck to toast his recent engagement!
 
Poggio le Volpi Frascati Superiore “People,” Lazio, Italy
Varietals: Trebbiano, Malvasia, Alc. %12


Poggio Le Volpi is a family-owned winery that occupies an area between the slopes of Monte Porzio Catone and the Roman countryside, an area where grape vines have grown for centuries. “People” is a great expression of the Lazio appellation. It is a versatile wine to accompany everyday dishes, and a wine to share with friends, intended for all types of palates. Pale and bright straw yellow in the glass, it exudes a fruity aroma full of pear, green apple and grape, mixed with white flowers and cut grass. The wine’s taste is fresh and flavorful, with a pleasant acidity and a clean finish. 
Excellent as an aperitif, It.  Pairs well: with seafood appetizers, risottos, vegetable soups, steamed fish and Thai chicken. ….$14.99

Tenuta Argentiera Poggio Ai Ginepri Vermentino, Tuscany, Italy
Varietal: Vermentino 90%, Sauvignon blanc 10 % Alc. 12.5%

The Argentiera estate covers 200 acres of breathtakingly beautiful Tuscan coast, southwest of Florence. Argentiera is close to the sea and at a high altitude, making the land especially well-suited to growing grapes. The estate is considered among the most beautiful in Italy with its spectacular view of the islands of the Tuscan archipelago. The estate’s Vermentino is an intense straw yellow in color. The nose has fruit-forward notes of pear, banana, and apricot. On the palate, floral tones of lavender and white flowers mix with an herbaceousness defined by wild sage. On the palate, the wine is fresh and easy drinking; truly well balanced. A long, flavorful finish is pronounced by aromatics and definitive minerality.  Pairs well: with most seafood dishes, from freshly shucked oysters to fried clams or battered fish tacos. It also pairs well with vegetables and is one of the few wines that pairs well with artichokes!  $24.99

Ippolito 1845 160 Anni, Calabria, Italy
Varietal: Gaglioppo, Alc. 15%


This wine was created to celebrate the history of the company, which was founded in 1845. The greatness of the Gaglioppo grape together with the company’s desire to innovate have given rise to a unique wine. The best bunches of Gaglioppo, manually selected, are left to dry on racks until the end of November and then the relative pomace macerates with wine from fresh grapes. The wine pours ruby with garnet flashes. Macerated red fruit aromas, woodsy tones, licorice, mixed with dried flowers, wild herbs, balsamic notes, and tree bark on the nose. Fullness, and great tannic structure is balanced by a marked marine flavor and a citrus freshness. It finishes on notes of cocoa and cinchona, sweet spices and red fruit.  Pairs well: with succulent meats, red meat sauces, aged cheeses and cured meats….  $27.99

Coppi Siniscalco Primitivo, Puglia, Italy
Varietal: Primitivo, Alc. 13.5%


The Coppi winery sits on the hills of the Murgia dei Trulli, a site that has been a winery since 1882. Primitivo, like Zinfandel, is a descendant of Croatia’s Crljenak Kaštelanski. Primitivo is mostly grown in the southern Italian province of Puglia. Since its links relating it to California’s Zinfandel surfaced, plantings have increased significantly. Primitivo is more rustic in character – albeit in a charming way- when compared to its trans-Atlantic cousin. Coppi’s Primitivo is vivid red in the glass. It has a very fruity nose with cherry notes. On the palate, it is dry, quite fresh and structured, fruity, and full-bodied. Pairs well: with ham, meatballs with cream sauce, sausage and potatoes, venison, cold cuts, and matured cheeses.… $17.99
