Staff Pick Notes

This Verdicchio-dominant blend is hand harvested from vineyards in Morro d'Alba, near the Adriatic coast. A crisp white wine, it is an ideal match for watching summer sunsets--though, it also does the trick when dreaming about them on cold nights. In fact, this wine has all the hallmarks of an everyday, go-to bottle. It provides versatile pairing potential at an amazing price. On the palate, Hello citrus! This wine shows lots of it--lemon, navel orange, pomelo, pink grapefruit. Underneath these bright and buoyant flavors lies even more refreshment, with slight hints of spearmint & juniper. It almost reminds me of a gin cocktail, but with the emphasis on the botanicals rather than the spirit. Stock up on this and you'll be prepared for anything, whether it's a steaming bowl of pasta or a picnic!

Red wines are produced here as well, with Sangiovese being the dominant red grape in the region. When blended with the...
