Here is the line up!!!
Vallevo, Trebiano, 2016 $12
The wine is pale straw in color, with aromas of almond, citrus and a hint of herbs. It is bone dry and finishes with a very attractive hint of apple-skin. This is a knockout everyday bottle of white wine, flavorful enough to stand up to a range of dishes but bright enough to make a good dry aperitif
Il Conventino, Rosato, 2016 $16
Dry, light and easy drinking. The nose offers a bouquet of bright fruits. Cherries, raspberries with a stemmy edge..
Colluta, Merlot, 2009 $21
Deep red with a spicy nose and fruity palate. Dry and med to full bodied. Try this with cheeses and a grassy lawn!!
Colluta, Refosco, 2009 $21
Refosco is a venerated regional varietal, and Colutta vinifies from the finest of Refosco clones Peduncolo Rosso. Colutta's Refosco is ruby-red with purple reflections and an intense, herbaceous nose enhanced by wild blackberries. In the mouth, this medium-bodied wine has notes of bright plummy and pomegranate fruit, and a long, quenching finish. This unique wine evokes this undiscovered region of Italy.
Tenuta San Vito, Madiere 2014 $30
Already some brown color, chemical, a bit animal nose, good Balance of Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Merlot grapes, good Body, slightly green tanins good acidity
Il Convwentino. Vino Nobbile de Montepulciano Reserve, 2009 $39
The ruby color is not too concentrated but holds up on the edge. The aroma is intense and well-defined with its red and marasca cherry and a very intriguing scent of yellow peach, nicely garnished by a slight, spicy note. The progression of the flavor is good and characterized more by its elegance and balance than its boldness. The finish keeps its promise with a nice fruity vein of blackberry
