2015 Vivaldi * Amarone della Valpolicella Classico
EMAIL SIX PACK DEAL- $192/6pk ($32btl)
The 2015 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico is a savory and sophisticated red with dusty notes of terracotta and flint backed by pressed plum, prune, dark smoke, leather and tobacco. This is a fabulous effort that will appeal to those who don’t like the overblown style normally exhibited in Amarone. The wine radiates elegance. The aromas and flavors already show lovely complexity, making this an excellent choice for drinking over the next few years. Pair it with succulent steak marinated in rosemary and olive oil.
2017 Tenuta Delle Terre Nere * Etna Rosso Santo Spirito
EMAIL SIX PACK DEAL- $252/6pk ($42btl)
The 2017 Santo Spirito is an abundant and enriched expression from the darkened volcanic slopes of Mt. Etna Santo Spirito runs through parts of Passopisciaro at the heart of Etna’s best production zones. This gorgeous wine opens to a dark garnet appearance with inkier colors of crimson and ruby. Crisp and crunchy tones of wild berry, cranberry, red rose and dark mineral characterize the mouthfeel.
2016 Moccagatta * Barbaresco Bric Balin
EMAIL SIX PACK DEAL- $330/6pk ($55btl)
The 2016 Barbaresco Bric Balin is a prototypical Moccagatta wine built on texture, power and resonance. Black cherry and plum fruit show the interplay of ripeness and bright acids that is such a signature of the vintage. Vertical in feel and yet also incredibly persistent, the Bric Balin is a wonderfully complete wine. This rich, super-concentrated Barbaresco is going to need time to shed some of its baby fat, but it is super impressive, even in the early going.
