A Trip to Italy Wine Pack (6 bottles)
A perfect mix of Italy's best wines!
Guido Marsella Greco di Tufo Campania, Italy
"Mr. Fiano" can also make some delicious Greco. He left the family business in 1995 to start the winery to prove he could make delicious Fiano. This is equally as interesting in it's youth, with some pleasing ripe fruit and floral notes. It has a little weight (no oak) and is more savory with minerality on the palate.
Le Pianelle 'al posto dei fiori' Costa della Sesia, Italy
If you want the most delicious rosé, just ask Cristiano Garella to make it from wonderfully grown Nebbiolo grapes in the northernmost part of Piedmont. This rosé gets better with age! So crazy. Mouth watering and crowd pleasing but nuanced, elegant and interesting.
La Collina Lambrusco 'Quaresimo' Emilia-Romagna, Italy
Enea founded and still runs the co-op, in addition to helping neighbors make wine, working closely with the Demeter organization and helping set up similar co-ops around the world. This is traditional Lambrusco with acidity and bubbles that can wash down perfectly the buttery sauce of any pasta, and stand up to rich meats at the same time.
Iuli 'Umberta' Barbera
Fabrizio is a kind, calculated, badass and this might be the best value in the shop. This wine tells a story. It is rustic on the nose, with plums and leather. Generous fruit on the palate with lively acidity and fine tanins.
Frank Cornelissen Munjebel Etna Rosso
Belgian by birth, Frank surely now calls Etna home. He knows the volcano and its vineyards better than anyone. He makes the best wine. You should get this.
Portelli Cerasuolo di Vittoria Sicily, Italy
Alessandro is the 5th generation Portelli to farm the land in Vittoria. If you're not familiar - Cerasuolo is perfection in a glass when done right. It is the harmonious blend of the bright, red fruited and floral Frappato with the dark, brooding and earthy Nero d'Avola.
