Villa Puccini Toscana
90% Sangiovese and 10% Merlot. Sangiovese brings wild strawberry and tart cherry flavors to the table, while the Merlot brings some extra weight, darker fruit flavors, and a little softness to the tannic structure. This wine is very food-friendly and likeable, a great match for rosemary grilled pork chops, hearty sausage and roasted potatoes, or Mom’s classic lasagna. 92 points, James Suckling
Valpolicella is a personal favorite among Italy’s many great red wines. Crafted from Corvina, Rondinella, and Corvinone grape varieties, this wine is characterized by its soft tannins and its’ classic dried cherry and almond flavors. Valpolicella is a great wine for Pinot Noir fans! This red is an excellent match for pizza, but is also light enough to serve with poultry or salmon.
Casata Monticello Barbera
Barbera is one of Italy’s more widely-grown grape varieties, but is most at home in Italy’s northwestern Piedmont region. Bright raspberry and black cherry flavors dominate the palate with light- to medium tannins. It’s a great accompaniment to any red-sauced pasta dish!
Stemmari Nero d’Avola
Nero d’Avola is one of the more prestigious grapes grown on the island of Sicily, where it makes bold red wines. This wine features bright black cherry and blackberry flavors with just the right amount of allspice and clove. This wine is great beside eggplant Parmesan, a cheese plate with lots of Italian cheeses and salami, or pork loin seasoned with fresh herbs.
Primitivo is one of the more widely-grown grape varieties in the southern province of Puglia, where it makes rustic and hearty red wines. From Italy, the grape was brought to the United States, where it was a popular staple in California’s budding wine industry as Zinfandel! This flavorful red calls for a spicy dish like beef fajitas, chili, or spicy sausage with peppers.
Primosole Pinot Grigio ~ Organic
This crisp and refreshing white wine was made for enjoying on the patio! Citrusy lemon and lime flavors mingle with green apple on the palate. Stainless steel fermentation keeps the palate light and zippy. Pair this white with any preparation of fish or poultry, especially recipes featuring a heavy dose of lemon!
