Hugel Pinot Blanc ‘Les Amours’ ($14.99): From one of the most esteemed domaine in Alsace, this pinot blanc is a benchmark for dry wine in the region. Medium-bodied and round, yet with a backbone of acidity, this white is extremely well-balanced and with aromas of white flowers and stone fruits.
Lamberti Sparkling Rose ($12.99): A blend of pinot bianco, pinot nero and raboso from the best vineyards in Treviso, this easy, fresh sparkler has aromas of fresh strawberries, raspberries, and a hint of spice, with a soft, round mousse, making a great aperitif or an easy pairing for raw bar.
Vigneti a Prua Rossese Riviera Ligura ($23.99): From the Italian Riviera best known for pesto, sun-dried tomatoes, and great shellfish, this light, exuberant red has aromas of fresh strawberries, with a refreshing, mineral-driven finish that drinks like spring in a bottle and captures the essence of the Mediterranean.
Chateau Miaudoux Bergerac Rouge ($21.99): An equal blend of merlot and cabernet sauvignon, this full-bodied red sees no oak and thus reveals brighter red and purple fruits, along with tobacco, green herbs, and wet stone. This is a hearty wine that is both refreshing and bold, and will pair with any roasted or grilled meats.
