CENTONZE Frappato 2016
Sicily, Italy $18.49
A purple-y red, the wine explodes from the glass with oodles of raspberry, strawberry and violets. At once rich and lush, it is also medium in body and has a weightless elegance to it. Think California Pinot Noir, without the oak, and a brighter fruit profile. Or maybe Grenache from the Rhone... or Garnacha from Spain... It is extremely pure and laser-focused, every sip bringing little explosions of fruit and floral notes. The acidity is bright, resulting in a mouth-watering finish that begs, nay commands, you take another gulp.

CASTELLI del GREVEPESCA CLEMENTE VII Settimo 2010
Tuscany, Italy $22.99
Bright medium dark brown brick color. Bright, fruity, herbal peppery aromas of dark fruits - cherry, plum pits, dried mint - menthol, and white pepper with a satiny, lively, dry full body and a peppery, layered, medium-length finish with well-integrated, fine, crunchy tannins and light oak. Wonderfully rich, nuanced and deep.

POGGIO STELLA Vino Nobile di Montepulciano 2011
Tuscany, Italy $22.99
Opens to a deep ruby color and pretty aromas of black cherry, red currant and even a touch of candied apricot. The wine is smooth and clean with dark spice, tar and light brushes of licorice that wrap around the finish. The tannins are dry they give a solid structural framework to the wine.

FADO Rosé 2017
Alentejano, Portugal $10.99
Portuguese tradition is perfectly embodied in this Rose. Just like Fado music, this wine is both traditional and representative of the pleasures of Portuguese eating and drinking. Light pink in color with a floral violet aromas, this fresh and fruity rosé is full of wild strawberry flavors cut through with acidity. A light touch of tannin on the finish gives an extra note of texture.
