Staff Pick Notes

There’s something about finding growers who respect the land that they cultivate, who dedicate themselves to acting in tune with nature’s rhythm when producing high-quality wines. Di Filippo is a certified organic and biodynamic winery that is all about hand-pruning and hand-harvesting—methods they find essential to their wine production. From the heart of the Umbria region in Cannara, this 100% Sagrantino is a malevolent force that exerts itself with a whopping 16% ABV. It has intense notes of dusty, worn leather, tobacco, mushrooms, and concentrated, dark-fruit compound. The full-bodied texture unfurls like velvet, balanced by the high acidity and tannins. This wine is limber and pairs beautifully with gamey meat and mature cheeses.
