2015 Vie di Romans Flors di Uis - $34.99

“Gianfranco Gallo makes some of the beautiful white wines available in Italy today. He has brilliantly captured the essence of Friuli thanks to the clarity of the aromas in his wines, from both indigenous and international grapes, and the profoundly moving manner in which they caress the palate. They are silky, smooth and delightful. The results are outstanding. Vie di Romans, to me, represents the pinnacle of Friuli winemaking pedigree.” Wine Advocate

50% Malvasia Istriana, 25% Friulano, 25% Riesling Renano

Ian D'Agata Vinous 93 Points

“Luminous golden-tinged straw yellow. Aromatic nose of peach, pear, crystallized ginger and tropical fruit. Outstanding salinity and juicy cut really extend the tropical and spicy fruit flavors on the long back end. A lovely wine, boasting lots of flavor and only 13% alcohol. Very well done. The Flor di Uis is almost always, every year, one of the best wines from Vie di Romans.”

2017 Cecchi La Mora Vermentino Maremma Toscana - $14.99 / $12.99 Case

My first impression while tasting this wine was “this tastes and smells like summer.” This is not your standard Vermentino wine. Yes it is lively with stone minerality, but a touch of malolactic fermentation provide richness not seen in others. Very fresh and aromatic with dried pear, pineapple, white flowers and a salty sea aroma. It’s from Southern Tuscany – dry, full & yet crisp that tastes of pear & stone fruit with a bit of grapefruit pith in the finish. Great structure and surprising length. ABV 12.5% A an extremely delightful white wine for Summer time sipping and will pair well with lots of food. Nicely done!
