ITALIAN RED VALUES, AND NZ SAUVIGNON BLANC
Lime Rock Sauvignon Blanc 2014, NZ ($23.99): Suprisingly lean and mineral, herbal and citrus aromas on the nose leads to a palate of ripe lime, guava, and grapefruit, with a clean dry finish.
Terre Gaie Pinot Noir “Stema” 2013, Italy ($13.99): From Trentino, garnet red with aromas of blueberries and wild strawberries, with harmonious and persistent tannins.
Schola Sarmenti Primitivo “Critera 2013, Italy ($17.99): Identical to zinfandel, this primitivo from Puglia shows intense dark berry and anise notes, and the full-bodied finish lingers with cedar and pomegranates.
Claudio Morelli Sangiovese “Le Terrazze” 2013, Italy ($17.99): A tradition sangiovese from an untraditional place in Le Marche. Earthy yet juicy, with typical cherry and spice notes, and an elegant, refreshing, mineral-driven finish.
