Staff Pick Notes

Who better to found a winery using biodynamic practices, which tie harvesting efforts to the lunar cycle, than an actual astronomer? Giuseppe Sesti was once an accomplished astronomer and prolific published author on the science of the stars. He decided to use that expertise to grow world class Sangiovese.

But if you're like me and rarely have the money and/or time to spend waiting for Brunello to come of age, try this special Rosso today. Unfiltered and relatively light on its feet, the wine features gorgeous bright red fruit, touches of oak and tobacco, with savory notes of mushroom and great length. Perfect choice for meaty pasta dishes or mushroom risotto. Will benefit from a nice decanting.
