Pierpaolo Pecorari Rosalba Rosato ($17.99): Pierpaolo RosAlba Rose is a beautiful dry rosé made from Refosco and Pinot Noir from the northeast of Italy. Aromas and flavors of red cherry, ruby red grapefruit, and cranberry; hints of violet, lavender, and pink peppercorn. Fantastic paired with green salads, sashimi, shellfish, goat cheese, olive oil-based pastas, rice dishes, sautéed calamari, and charcuterie.
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.
