Summer Wine Features
Soave Classico DOC 2015 & Rosso di Montepulciano DOC 2014

Enjoy summer days with light, refreshing wines produced by some of the best female winemakers in Italy. The Tessari sisters are fourth generation winemakers perfecting the philosophy of careful selection, low yields and incredible attention to detail. Miriam Caporali is following in the footsteps of her father Giulio, cultivating an international reputation for producing some of the finest Vino Nobile di Montepulciano.

100% Garganega grapes, Soave Classico is vinified only in stainless steel tanks with several months’ lees contact before bottling. The entire process is completely chemical free. Fresh aromas of apple, pear, and almond balance clean minerality and a hint of fresh herb. Crisp and refreshing on the palate, the flavors and aromas build toward a harmonious and lingering finish.

90% Sangiovese, 5% Canaiolo Nero, and 5% Mammolo, a portion of the wine is aged for three months in year-old French barriques. This ruby red wine has opulent aromas of blueberries, blackberries, and raspberries, over more subtle notes of wildflowers and sweet spices.On the palate, the wine is elegant, with well-balanced tannins, vibrant acidity, and a smooth texture.


We will be featuring these two wines for $9 a glass and $35 a bottle.


Wednesday - Every Wednesday* is "Wine Appreciation Wednesday" where every full bottle of wine less than $75 is offered at half price. 

Thursday - Every Thursday* every glass of wine will be offered at half price.

In addition to Lacyrma Christi del Vesuvio Bianco DOC 2015, we will also be showcasing Mastroberardino's Redimore Irpinia Aglianico DOC 2013.

Though generally sold at $18 a glass and $60 a bottle, we will be featuring BOTH of these wines for the month of May at just $9 a glass and $35 a bottle!


These are two of our favorite Mastroberardino wines. Mastroberardino, besides being one of the leading wineries in Italy and the world, is a family owned business dating back ten generations! It is because of the Mastroberardino family that the indigenous grapes of Southern Italy’s Campania region continue to not just exist, but enjoy recognition among the finest wines in the world.

100% Colpa di Volpe grape, Lacryma Christi del Vesuvio Bianco is pale yellow in color with aromas of pear and other tree fruits complementing undertones of white peach and licorice. On the palate, strident minerality and good body make this a well-structured, food friendly wine.


100% Aglianico grape, the Redimore or “king of blackberries” is deep ruby red in color. Complex and intense, with hints of red fruits, especially strawberries and raspberries, and spices such as vanilla, tobacco, cocoa and coffee. Elegant, well-structured, with a long persistence and a remarkable softness.
