This sparkling white is golden, with long, persistent bubbles and rustic pear, lemon, and almond notes. Pair this with all of your sparkling wine occasions, from celebrations to binging Netflix. You can even rock this with Spaghetti alla Carbonara.
This wine is a modern, elegant Grasparossa that is herbal and intoxicating. Lambrusco is lightly sparkling – just enough to cleanse your palate after a bite of cheese and salumi (the traditional pairing) – but the Bruno Zanasi has that extra layer of herbs, spice, and brambly earth that takes it from thirst-quenching to soulful.
Who doesn't love a foamy glass of delicious sparkling rosé? This little party starter from Friuli is one for the fridge and the hopeful return of gatherings in the coming months. In the meantime, there is enough deliciousness here to throw a party for yourself before settling into your coziest spot to binge some Netflix.
This is Due Santi Wines' first sparkling rosé, and it does not disappoint. Produced from organic Merlot grapes, this bright and satisfying wine celebrates the journeys we take in life. Real journeys toward a special person or place. Journeys of the mind or heart toward some greater good. Plus all of those crossings -- real and imagined -- that we make just for the sake of it.
This sparkling wine has a beautifully rich pink hue and just the right amount of bubbles. Share a celebratory glass with friends or sip leisurely by the pool -- you can't go wrong with this one.
This Sicilian sparkling rosato has fine bubbles and notes of wild strawberries, cherries, pomegranate, and even white pepper. It’s the classic sparkling rosato for any occasion. Perfect as an aperitif or even with light, Mediterranean dishes.
This particular rosé wine is dry, lively, and refreshing with aromas and flavors of tangy red cherries, pomegranate, fresh ginger, and white pepper. It’s the perfect aperitif but also pairs well with light, Mediterranean-inspired food.
This is a heady, medium-bodied blend of Grenache, Mourvèdre, Syrah, and Cinsault, suitable for spicy foods as well as rich barbecue. Crafted as a rosé de pressurage (red grapes are pressed, extracting from the grapes’ skins a delicate blush color) with aromas of wild garrigue and summer berries and a delicate pink color.
This wine may be the most sunshine-filled rosé of the year. It tastes like refreshing, mouthwatering watermelon and strawberry lemonade. We think this wine is perfect for holiday hangouts, even if they might be more intimate than in years past.
Produced from just-ripened organic Merlot grapes, our 2019 Due Santi Rosato is a dry, savory, and robust rosé wine, brilliantly ruby-red in color with prominent notes of early-season raspberries and freshly-cut chilled watermelon. When well chilled, its perfect balance of savory fruit and pleasantly supportive spirits (at 12.5%) make this rosé an inspired complement to any variety of antipasto dishes, practically any light snack or meal, and even a richly sweet dessert. It’s also a proud stand-alone act for any occasion, be it after work, on the beach, or with friends at a neighborhood picnic.
This organic rosé wine is the very best product that we have produced in this line since the debut in 2018. The lovely amber color of the 2018 wine has returned, along with some really pleasant and inviting floral tones on the nose. At first taste, a combination of citrus and mineral flavors appears, with notable peach and orange hints lingering till the end. Our rosato 2020 weighs in at 12.5% alcohol and wears it well. For anyone who likes the Spritz, Italy’s current national favorite after-work drink, this wine will also give you that sense of genuine Italian style, grace and beauty, all in a glass.
This is a true benchmark producer of the region. The family owns a couple of hectares outside the Viré-Clessé boundaries, from which they make this wine. It is aged in tanks for 18 months, and shows floral and citrus aromas and flavors.
Try this wine with goat cheese, charcuterie, or seafood. Feeling adventurous? They also recommend this with frog's legs or escargots.
This white is one for the books. It has aromas of white peaches, honey, and wildflowers and has flavors of citrus, white pepper, fresh almonds, and stone fruits. Pairs perfectly with a big roasted chicken, pork, or shellfish for your Easter dinner. Also goes incredibly well with a garlic-heavy sauce, like pesto. And do not skimp on the great EVOO and Parmigiano-Reggiano.
This white has aromas of jasmine and yellow flowers. It is plush yet lively, with good acidity; rich, intense citrus and apricot flavors. The freshness of this wine screams for seafood or light pasta dishes. It would be great with calamari, spaghetti with clams, or simply bread and olive oil.
This cuvée is made from 1 hectare of 65-year-old Jacquere vines, grown on clay and limestone soils. After being harvested by hand, the grapes undergo a long fermentation with full malolactic. The lees are stirred in the tank for two months to give the wine additional richness and complexity. Production is just over 600 cases a year. The wine shows mineraled notes (tonic) as well as higher-pitched floral notes. Excellent with grilled fish, shellfish, and the local Savoyard charcuterie.
This wine is 100% Chenin Blanc. Waxy fruit (star fruit, dried pineapple), flinty, and full of that lovely rockiness that only comes from the Loire Valley, this is a cerebral white wine. Dream pairing for grilled chicken (particularly with some French herbs) and shellfish cooked over a fire. Or you could just throw some olive oil, herbs, and salt on pasta and go to town.
This wine is killer. There is always a potency of mineral in a great Friulano. In this case, there is also a lushness to couple with the power. This particular Friulano has aromas of fresh apricots, citrus, and light wildflowers. It’s fresh, fruity, and suave; light on the palate but intensely flavored. Works perfectly as an aperitif, with local salumi or with grilled fish.
This white is unbelievably easy to drink. It goes well with tons of different foods but is also the perfect wine for sipping on a hot day. There is lemon-lime and pear on the palate with crazy minerality. It’s low in alcohol -- only 11.5% -- and is also organic and made with very little sulfur. Basically, it’s one of the more drinkable wines you’ll find.
This red is a versatile wine redolent of ripe red and blue berries and underbrush, a touch of summer with a hint of fall. Dolcetto, or “little sweet one,” is always a joy to savor with its soft tannins and savory finish. It is an ultimate pizza wine and works with a range of toppings. Also it sings with grilled meats, like grilled sausage or pork ribs. Or delicious on its own after a hard day’s work.
A cousin of Nebbiolo but lighter and brighter. Grilled chicken loves this wine. It also loves salami and ham plates and fresh cheese. Serve a bit chilled and quaff.
Like a velvet hammer, this potent wine comes across big and brooding but turns out to be more delicate than expected. Grilled steaks and sausages with simple sides, ragu pasta sauces, and hard and savory cheeses all pair beautifully.
Did you happen to read Hemingway’s “A Moveable Feast” ? If so, think of EH whiling away the hours scribbling in a notebook, ripping through cigs and ordering cup after cup of easy-drinking Corbières. This is the red that makes you want to watch things happen that do not directly involve yourself. With aromas of blackberry, licorice, and Asian five-spice and flavors of red and black plums and smooth tannins, this is the wine you want to drink with your grilled red meat or game.
The best red wine we have offered to date (outside of our beloved Due Santi Rosso, of course). This is 100% Syrah and absolutely dynamite. This is a muscular and glorious specimen and pairs perfectly with grilled meat. In fact, while we usually steer clear of too much BBQ sauce with French wine, this bottle dares one to pour it on thick.
Perhaps no other grape has benefitted by the warmer climate than Gamay. This wine and all Beaujolais reds are produced only with this noble grape. Over the past few vintages, these wines have become more rich, fleshy (viscous), and delicious. In essence, this is a wine for all foods, but we especially love this paired with grilled meat, heavy salads, and even enchiladas and fajitas.
Grapes are hand-harvested in small batches, then fermented and aged in fiberglass tanks with daily pump-overs. The juice undergoes a 7-day fermentation period, after which the free-run and press wines are blended. After malolactic, the wine is aged for 6 months in fiberglass tanks on its fine lees and is bottled after a light filtration. Notes of Morello cherry and black fruit with a savory note of black pepper.
Soft on the palate, this is a very versatile wine that can be enjoyed with anything you might put on your dinner table.
This wine is killer. It has a deep ruby color. Blackberry with a bit of red fruit peeking through, along with a touch of pepper. A hint of herbs (mountain herbs, as in Chartreuse) come through on the rich, full-bodied palate. The lightly tannic finish is also long.
2019 in Beaujolais was like a combination of the best three years ever in the area. Critics are screaming from the mountain tops about 2019 and its merits. This wine has violet aromas, akin to Vosne-Romanée. Tannins are silk and flavors suggest red berries, red plums, and light spice. Goes well with white meat, like chicken, and hard cheeses, such as Comté.
Le Clos du Caillou “Old Vines” is one of the darling reds of the past 15 years. It is one of the most delicious products from the appellation year after year. Always pepper, bramble, garrigue (classic wild and herbaceous flavors of the Rhone Valley) with gobs of concentrated fruit to mix with the savory. Pairs perfectly with grilled steak, game meat, and lamb. It is a like savory blackberry tart after a steak dinner. These guys sell thousands of bottles a year of this wine. We hope you will know why soon.
This beautiful wine leans toward citrus, red cherry, and dried herbs, with fine, elegant tannins that carry the finish along with the acidity. Definitely ready to enjoy now but will continue to drink in the sweet spot for at least a couple of years! This is the Northern Italian red we’ve been waiting to offer. Game birds, ham, and lots of things with butter pair beautifully here.
This is a big wine. It is from a cool place, near a rushing river. Yet, it is a mouthful of delicious and potent fruit. Notes of blackberry, cranberry, and cherry. Serve this wooly monster with a thick ribeye and lots of buttered potatoes.
This wine from California has balanced acidity with hints of tobacco and the experience of warm vine-ripened bramble berries popped into your mouth in the moment after being plucked from the vine. Cracked pepper and eucalyptus add delightful savory notes. This is an excellent natural wine for newbies or one to share with the friends. It would pair perfectly with a standing rib roast.
Our Cabernet Sauvignon for this vintage was incredibly intense with deep and dark berries coming through on the nose and the palate. The Merlot, while much riper in flavor than ever, still possesses the hint of forest and provides the acidic backbone to balance the richness of the Cabernet. This wine truly qualifies for the "velvet hammer" description. It is also a touch higher in alcohol than prior Due Santi Rossos and is much more obviously opulent and drinkable on release.
Due Santi Rosso 2019 is the beneficiary of perfect weather and a superb growing season in the spring and summer of 2019. The final product is a wine with extraordinary character, complexity, and sense of command. It is deep purple in color and rich and satisfying in taste. On the nose, there are complex and seductive hints of dark-blooded forest fruits, just enough but not too much leather, and then a hint of smokey wood aromas from our newly-acquired casks. For our Cabernet Sauvignon lovers, this year’s DSR gives you more to enjoy than in past vintages, in effect elevating the smoothness of the Merlot with some pleasant action and indeed transgression on the part of its Cab Sav counterpart. Weighing it at 13% alcohol, this wine is generous to the final drop.
