There, it is usually a light, fresh quaffing wine to enjoy with salumi in a local osteria.

  • Adesso Cagnina di Romagna 2012


    I love this wine. For those who prefer sweet wines this is a great choice. Typically choices for sweets are Moscatos or Rieslings, and the reds are usually very sweet & fall in the category of dessert wines. This has just a touch of sweetness & goes perfect with a great steak dinner. Read More

  • Ronchi di Cialla Refosco Dal Peduncolo Rosso Colli Orientali del Friuli 2008


    This bottling explodes with aromas of pomegranate, rhubarb, savory notes and dried lavender. It is joyfully youthful, pleasingly medium-bodied and quite lengthy on the finish. The tannins are slightly edgy. Drink now through 2016, though theres no reason to wait. Read More
