Marani Bianco Veronese IGT, Veneto, Italy, 2019
Varietal: Garganega, Alc. 13.5%

In the Soave region of the Veneto east of Verona, the Garganega grapes that produce this wine grow in limestone soil. The grapes are hand-picked ands transported as quickly as possible to the pressing house. The juice is fermented in oak barrels and aged on the lees. The wine is a vibrant yellow in the glass.

Iniceri Abisso Cataratto, Sicily, Italy, 2018
Varietal: Cataratto Bianco, Alc. 12.5% 

Inicieri is a family-owned vineyard in Contrada Inici, outside the town of Castellammare del Golfo, so named for the castle nearby perched on a gulf overlooking the Mediterranean. The family uses organic farming practices to grow native Sicilian grapes such as Cataratto, one of the classic traditional white grape varieties of the island. It produces a wine that is pale yellow with green hues. The nose is a lovely balance between fruity notes of green apple and citrus and the spiciness of ginger and white pepper. High minerality is balanced by good structure and a very long finish on the palate. 
Pairs well: with seasonal greens, such as arugula, with fresh grilled nectarines, crushed almonds, and sardines sprinkled with sea salt and olive oil. $19.99

In Eremita, the small dark grape produces a deep ruby wine with aromas of cherry, blueberry and black currant and spicy notes like rosemary and vanilla balanced by a touch of vanilla and tobacco imparted by 8 months in French oak. The wine is elegant on the palate with fine tannins, a lot of minerality, and a long finish.
Pairs well: with grilled beef, roasted lamb, roasted game, and pasta with a hearty sauce. $18.99 

Kaltern Schiava Gentile DOC, Trentino, Italy, 2021
Varietal: Schiava, Alc. 12.5%
Schiava has a long history in Alto Adige. Until a few decades ago, 80 per cent of the area in South Tyrol was cultivated with Schiava. While that percentage has dropped, Schiava is still the most widely planted variety in the region. This Kaltern schiava is  light cherry red in color with an aromatic, fruity nose dominated by cherry and raspberry notes with hints of bitter almond. Medium-bodied and very soft on the palate, it is a pure pleasure to drink.
Pairs well: with appetizers or typical Tyrolean fare such as pickled pork belly and sausage, but also to lighter meats and mild cheeses. …$18.99

Located in Castellina in the heart of the Chianti Classico district, the family-owned estate dates back as a wine-producing property to the sixteenth century. Rodáno has belonged to the Pozzesi family since that time. The Chianti Classico is a juicy red wine with aromas of black fruit, notes of violets and wild herbs, and hints of wet earth and tobacco. On the palate it’s very fruity, delicate, and elegant. It’s an easy to drink wine, fresh and with a long, pleasant finish.

Les Equilibristes (the Tightrope Walkers) is a wine growers and winemakers collective started by restaurateur François de Monval and winemaker Florent Girou. They are preserving the old ways of winemaking, while questioning old practices that no longer make sense. Les Equilibristes use indigenous grape varieties, organic winemaking practices, biodynamic farming, indigenous yeasts, and minimal sulphur. With this wine they aim to use Gamay to bring out all the complexity of the rare soil of black mica on granite.

This pinot noir pours ruby red with bright flashes. Ripe raspberries, strawberries, and black cherries are present in the nose and on the palate, along with mushroom and mineral aromas and some vanilla and cocoa notes from aging in oak barrels. It’s an elegant wine with velvety mouthfeel and lots of subtleties.

Fattorria Selvapiana Chianti Rufina, Rufina, Italy, 2020
Varietals:

At just 750 hectares, the Rufina region is the smallest in all of Chianti and is at a much higher elevation, too, in the hills east of Florence. The region produces wines that have incredible finesse. The historic Selvapiana estate has been producing some of the best wines in the region for centuries, using organic farming methods. In the 2020 vintage, red cherry fruits mix with rose petals, licorice, and calcareous earth on the nose. Morello cherry fruit joins flavors of mushrooms, blood orange, cloves, star anise, minerals and food-friendly tannins on the elegant finish.
Pairs well: with pasta al pomodoro, margherita pizza, grilled burgers and steaks, Tuscan bean stews, rosemary-scented roast lamb, and hearty eggplant casseroles. Enjoy now or cellar for up to 10 years. $19.99
