Bertoli Primitivo di Puglia I.G.T.
Think of that perfectly broken-in pair of boots. They’re tough enough for bad weather, but refined enough to add something to your favorite suit. Bertoli Primitivo di Puglia I.G.T is those boots. This powerful red, from Italy’s heel, soft and deep with flavorful vanilla, raspberry and spice notes. Pack it for a trip, or pair it with spicy sausages, venison, duck, or tomato dishes like chili and lasagna.
Cantus Montepulciano d'Abruzzo D.O.C.
A well-tuned vintage car has a special rumble. It’s strong and familiar and makes you feel like you can go anywhere. Montepulciano’s the ruby red 1959 Alfa Romeo of wines—one of the most popular Italian grapes, robust and able to hold its own with meaty meals. Cantus Montepulciano d’Abruzzo D.O.C. is dry and harmonious, with aromas of tobacco and leather. Enjoy this medium-bodied red after you’ve been out for a spin.
Della Flora Chianti D.O.C.G.
Located inside of Tuscany, Chianti is the home of regal, sought-after wines like this offering from Della Flora, with flavors of tart cherry, red plum, and fresh strawberries that mingle with hints of tobacco, oregano, clay, and dried roses. The Italian government has honored this wine with Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita (DOCG), one of their highest ratings, ensuring that this is one elegant and delicious Sangiovese.
Villa Amoroso Nero d'Avola
Sicily’s premier grape Nero d’Avola is like Cabernet Sauvignon to California – the two go hand in hand. Nero d’Avola’s bold flavors contrast the wine’s light red profile. Villa Amoroso’s vibrant version offers flavors of blackberry, plum, sweet spice, and smoke with a sultry finish. This is a wine for food lovers, especially beef dishes like stews, burgers, and even meatloaf.
Val di Botte Sangiovese I.G.T.
With unlimited coastal access, warm Southern Italian sun, and 24-hour cool breezes, the Puglia wine region produces balanced, fruity grapes which match the local, tomato-rich food. If you want an earthy red to go with your favorite pizza or pasta, Val di Botte Sangiovese Puglia is what you’re looking for, especially if you decant it for half an hour to let the flavors of red currant and raspberry really open up.
Abbazia Barbera d' Asti D.O.C.G.
Located in the rolling hills between Milan and Genoa, Asti is known for some of the world’s best wines and cuisine. The Barbera made in Asti is second to none. This elegant wine is full and dry, with firm tannins and ripe red berry flavors. While Barbera ages well, its youthful nature is especially exciting during the young stages of its bottle life.
