2013 Cala De Poeti Morellino di Scansano
Cala de Poeti Morellino di Scansino is the quintessential wine from Maremma, a beautiful area of the Tuscan coast that is known as Italy’s Wild West. This fruity and dry red has a voluptuous texture, with fragrances of fresh cherries and plums. Made from hand-harvested grapes grown in a restricted production area between the rivers Ombrone and Albegna, Cala de Poeti Morellino di Scansino is ruby red, with fruity with notes of cherries, blackberries, and violets. It has a great complexity, with soft tannins that make it the ideal match for grilled red meat, lasagna, and mature cheeses.

2015 Granite Ridge Pinotage
With nearly a century as South Africa’s signature grape, Pinotage is a hybrid made from Pinot Noir and Cinsault (also known as Hermitage). Pinotage wines are celebrated for their unique, light red profile, and South Africa’s Winery of Good Hope shares this wonderful example of the varietal. Uncork this bright and juicy red and enjoy the way that Pinot Noir-esque notes of cherry intertwine with Cinsault’s pronounced spices. It’s especially good if served slightly chilled.
