Grifalco ‘Gricos’ Aglianico del Vulture 2011
Italy makes wine everywhere! There is not one region where wine isn’t made. This red wine is from the region of Puglia. This is also a wine that was made with serious intent from certified organic vineyards. After all, Aglianico is not something one finds everywhere. There is lots of black fruit in this wine, deep and dark but as people say “it is a true example of Barolo of the South”!

D’Alfonso del Sordo Catapanus Bombino (White) 2013
We know!! That’s a lot of name for a wine. Let’s start with Bombino, that is the grape. The name Catapanus refers to a historical figure. While it may have a history the wine is very here and now. Because it ripened early and was harvested late, it has a richness that is very sensuous. Aromas of anise, pineapples and bananas may say sweet but the wine is dry. There is so much to this wine that we have run out of room…

Ricasoli Chianti 2013
Tuscany is probably the best known wine region of Italy. It conjures up the romance of wine quite well. If you saw photos of the Ricasoli estate it would do nothing to dissuade you of such a notion. This Chianti is from a classic vintage and is a good example of what can be done with the help of talented winemakers. Easy to drink, this wine tastes of ripe fruit and bits of herbal qualities. Made with Sangiovese, it is a classic old school wine.
