Some of the most enviable vineyards in the world – nestled in the hills outside Verona – grow the little known Garganega grape. The aromatic and mouth-filling sensations found in this dry white wine are the exclusive characteristics of an old world wine. Elegant aromas and flavors of wild flowers and stone fruit. One of the finest examples of this varietal available.
All the bright fruit and savory earthiness of the varietal are showcased in this 100% Sangiovese from one of the oldest estates in all of Italy.
From the distinguished Bolgheri coast along the Tyrrhenian Sea come this distinctive “Super-Tuscan” blend of Merlot, Cabernet, and Cabernet Franc. Flavors of dark plums, cherries, and berries are enhanced by notes of dusty cocoa, sweet spices, fresh herbs, and silky tannins. Exceptional, and intangibly Tuscan.
The best kept secret from northern Italy is made in an especially creamy and opulent style that sets it apart from champagne. Very limited production and distribution (90% of all Franciacorta is consumed in the surrounding Swiss Alps), so it’s no wonder most Americans have never heard of this highly regarded sparkler.
