*Anjos 2020 Blanc, Vinho Verde, Portugal - (35% Loureiro, 25% Trajadura and 40% Arinto) This delicately rich, slightly spritzy, wine is fresh and crisp with citrus notes, a touch of salinity and only 9.5 % alcohol. This elegant wine is the perfect summer aperitif.
*Renacer 2019 Malbec “Punto Final”, Mendoza, Argentina- “The affordable and accessible 2019 Punto Final Malbec is juicy, fresh and clean, all about fruit and flowers. This perfumed and showy blend of grapes from Lujan de Cuyo and Valle de Uco reveals a polished palate with good acidity and very fine tannins. It’s extremely easy to drink at 13.5% alcohol. Delicious! This is a bargain for the quality it delivers. 400,000 bottles produced. It was bottled unoaked in January 2020.” (WA 3/21)
*Domaine de la Bastide 2020 Rose, Cotes du Rhone, France - (70% Grenache, 15% Syrah and 15% Cinsault) Dry with aromas of ripe red fruits and peaches. It’s fuller bodied, balanced, smooth and finishes with appropriate acidity. Reminds one of a rich Provençal rose.
*Merceron-Martin 2020 Gamay Rouge, Coteaux d’Ancenis, Loire Valley, France - 100% Gamay, whole bunch carbonic maceration in traditional Beaujolais vinification. Aromas of red and black berries, spices and smoked meats. Lighter bodied, it finishes with good acidity and mild tannins. Serve slightly chilled.
San Felice 2015 Rosso “Perolla,” Tuscany, Italy – “Though rich, this red is delicate, featuring cherry, strawberry, spice and tobacco flavors melding with the supporting structure. Harmonious now, but should be even better in a year or two. Fine length. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Ciliegiolo and Sangiovese. Best from 2020 through 2032. 2,000 cases made, 900 cases imported.’ (WS 10/18)
Collina San Ponzio 2020 Roero Arneis, Piedmont, Italy - A medium-bodied, dry white with notes of melon and Gala apples underscored by minerality. If you don’t know Arneis, then this is the perfect introduction to the white grape of Barolo and the sandier vineyards of the Roero hills next door.
L’Idylle 2019 Blanc, Savoie, France- 100% Jacquère, from the Alpine region of Savoie. Notes of quince and under ripe pit fruit; it’s light, clean and crisp, like drinking bottled mountain air.
Tenuta Regaleali 2017 Perricone Guarnaccio, Sicily, Italy- “The 2017 Sicilia Perricone Guarnaccio Tenuta Regaleali opens to raw and tangy aromas of cherry and plum. The Perricone grape has a tendency to highlight the naked but also slightly rustic side of Sicilian red wines. This is a nicely worked expression that never colors too far outside the lines. If you are new to Perricone, this is a good place to start. ” (WA 10/18)
