2014 Ferlaia Inzolia Catarratto
Inzolia is an Italian grape variety grown in both Sicily and Tuscany. While it is most famous traditionally as an ingredient in the fortified Marsala wines, it is now seen more and more as a crisp, dry white wine, in blends and as a single variety. Inzolia wines are moderately aromatic, and tend to display nutty, citrusy characters with herbal notes. This Sicilian wine is an enjoyable everyday wine at a great price. $6.50 per bottle
2012 Arnoux Vieux Clocher Gigondas
The Gigondas Vieux Clocher is pressed from hillsides grapes that received an exceptional sunlight. Its deep purple color extends a nose of black fruits that may appear restrained in its youth, but which after a few years of cellar will develop all its complexity, developing then notes of garrigue and spice. It is intense on the palate with elegant masculine tannins. The incomparable bouquet will only improve with a few years age. $22.00 per bottle
2012 Beiras Foz de Arouce Baga Tinto
Foz de Arouce Tinto is sourced from the schistous alluvial vineyard of Quinta de Foz de Arouce, which has been in the family of Count João Fillipe Osorio since the twelfth century. The wine, which is 85% Baga and 15% Touriga Nacional, is fermented in stainless steel tanks and aged in French oak for eight months. Deep red in color, this wine has excellent aromatic concentration, emanating notes of red fruits and resin. It is well-balanced with soft tannins and a persistent finish. $17.50 per bottle
