Monarch Glen Barbera
Enjoy the luscious flavors of ripe cherry and dark blackberry that join in harmony with notes of sweet spice and vanilla in every glass of 2015 Monarch Glen Barbera. This juicy, food-friendly red pairs with a wide variety of food, but we especially love it with mushroom risotto.
Tremo Carbonic Maceration Tempranillo
Carbonic Maceration is a cutting edge winemaking method where a carbon dioxide rich environment is used to ferment juice inside the grape. This results in very fruity wines with very little mouth-drying tannins. While most popular in France, Bodega Luis Alegre is using Carbonic Maceration in Spain on masterfully grown Tempranillo and Viura grapes for a juicy wine with an aromatic nose of raspberry, cherry and slight violet notes. Soft acidity provides just enough balance for fresh fruit notes that meet licorice on the finish.

Villa Amoroso Chianti
These days, Chianti means way more than basket-woven bottles of table wine. Villa Amoroso sets itself apart with a joyful blend of 85% Sangiovese and 15% regional varietals, creating a foodie-thrilling balance of tart red fruit and spicy herb flavors. The notes of smoke, clay, peppers, and tomato perfectly compliment tomato-based Italian dishes and dried meats. Don’t believe us? Pick up a bottle and see for yourself why Chianti is the most consumed, talked, and written-about Italian wine.
