Gulfi Cerasuolo di Vittoria ($21.99): This Sicilian gem is a blend of two native Sicilian grapes, Nero d’Avola and Frappato. Aromas of spiced blueberry, blackberry and violet lead the nose on this juicy wine. The savory palate offers black cherry, crushed raspberry, vanilla and baking spice alongside round, soft tannins.
Gulfi Nerojbleo Nero dAvola ($21.99): Perfumed and juicy, offering sweet candied blueberry pie, sweet spices and faded flowers on the nose and in the mouth. Very smooth texture and clean, ripe flavors have pretty floral lift and vibrancy. A knockout NeroJbleo, one of the best in years, in fact.
Livia Fontana Barolo ($39.99): Intriguing aromas of underbrush, mature dark-skinned fruit, dark culinary spice, new leather and balsamic notes slowly unfold in the glass. The chewy full-bodied palate delivers fleshy Morello cherry, crushed raspberry, licorice and tobacco. Velvety tannins provide firm polished support.
