Montefresco Pinot Grigio 1.5 Liter ($16.99): A wine of acidity and depth, Montefresco delivers far beyond your standard Pinot Grigio – a distinctly stony, mineral-driven personality and overall sense of structure. White stone fruits, slate, crushed rocks and flowers meld into the tense finish.
Giordano Lombardo Gavi di Gavi ‘Vigne di San Martino’ ($16.99): This wine made, biodynamically, shows nutty citrus fruits on the floral nose. It has a driving minerality on the palate, with a chalky texture that does not diminish the graceful freshness and clarity of expression.
Caruso and Minini Nero d’Avola ($16.99): This Nero d’Avola is from the Marsala region of Sicily on the west coast. It displays aromas of blackberries and black cherries. It is medium-bodied with plums and dark berries and just a hint of spice, leading into a finish which is clean and bright.
Max Ferdinand Richter Mulheimer Sonnenlay Spatlese Riesling 2007 ($25.99): The Mulheimer Soonenlay is the largest single Richter vineyard and the source of world-class Riesling. The name Sonne (sunshine) and lay (slate stone) perfectly describes the characteristics of the site. This wine has a bright, clear structure of ripe yellow fruits, paired with complexity and crystal clear slate stone minerals, backed by good weight and long aftertaste.
