Albarrada is a new and exclusive winery that showcases local Portuguese grapes. This excellent red wine (or vinho tinto, in Portuguese) features Castelão grapes, which thrive on Portugal’s drier, harsher climate. The resulting wine is aromatic and fruit-forward with notes of red berries and mild floral notes. We suggest Albarrada Red for fans of Tempranillo and Barbera, especially if you pair it with French charcuterie or Korean short ribs.
Bertoli Sangiovese di Puglia IGT
Classics started off great, and developed into something respected, excellent, refined, and reliable. Think gourmet grilled cheese, your favorite singer’s surprising 10th album, or Sangiovese wine--the most famous Italian grape, known for its delicate and elegant fruitiness. Bertoli Sangiovese di Puglia IGT croons from the glass with supple berry flavors, silky mouth feel, and a lively encore.

Cala de Poeti Rosso
Patience is a virtue, and so is this delicious Italian red wine. Open Cala de Poeti Rosso early, so that it has time to bring its inviting flavors of strawberry and raspberry to the forefront. The smooth red offers hints of herbs and roasted pepper, and really pops when paired with classic, tomato-based Italian dishes.
In Ancient Aztec, Tremo means vibrant and fresh. This is the perfect description for this cutting edge wine from Spain’s Rioja region. Tempranillo is Spain’s signature grape, exploding with flavors of strawberry, plum, and black currant in this full-bodied, well-structured red that finds itself balanced perfectly by soft, elegant tannins. Tremo Tempranillo is versatile and food-friendly, especially if you pair it with a juicy burger or a slice of pizza.

It’s a versatile food wine, that pairs well with fish, grilled chicken or vegetables, and we’ve found that it’s the bottle that thrills white wine fans…and converts red wine drinkers.
