Tasting Notes

An ideal house wine but so much more than what it sounds. Easy to drink, bright red plums mingle on a palate laced with faint tannins. Ideally suited for pizza and the gamut of pasta dishes.

Staff Pick Notes

It's a competitive world these days--New York even more so. There's pressure for great wines to be well-priced, as well as being outstanding in terms of taste and quality. Il Rosso Di Casa definitely delivers a great tasting wine at a great price. Is it fancy and complicated? No. Is the perfect accompaniment to a great slice of pizza or anything in a red sauce? Hell Yes! It's comprised of 70% Montepulciano, 20% Merlot, and 10% Lacrima di Morro d'Alba from the Mache's hilly vineyards, on the eastern side of the Italian peninsula. Nice ripe fruit with smooth tannin, and just a hint of dusty road and leather, all add up to a pleasure to drink, with or without food.

Montepulciano

This rugged red staple can be anything from a simply fruited, easy-drinking wine to a serious, more structured offering, complete with all the depth and earthiness that can come from old-vine fruit and ideally placed vineyards. Montepulciano d'Abruzzi is produced in the region of Abruzzi from the Montepulciano grape, and is not to be confused with Tuscany’s Sangiovese-based Vino Nobile di...

Sangiovese

Italy's most planted grape variety is at the heart of some of the most beloved wines in the country. Grown all over the region, but especially in Central Italy, Sangiovese is the only grape allowed in Brunello di Montalcino, and the main grape in Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, Chianti, and countless other delicious Italian blends. Sangiovese has shown itself in recent years to be an excellent...
