HALF AND LARGE BOTTLE FORMAT

We love large format bottles. If you are having a celebration or hosting a larger group, there are few wine occasions more exciting than sharing a magnum or double magnum of wine between friends or colleagues. These wines also mature more steadily and consistently than smaller format wines, making for a better drinking experience. Enjoy the selection.

GERMAN WHITES

BIANCO

Germany produces, without a doubt, transcendent examples of the noble variety Riesling. Generally misunderstood due to seemingly confusing wine law and varied sweetness levels, German Riesling exhibits the nest representation of what the French refer to as terroir – that is, sense of place. The attributes of a fine German Riesling are many – long known for its spectacular food pairing qualities, age ability, and sensuality. At the top tier of classified German Riesling exists the term Grosses Gewachs simply labeled as “GG”. Grosses Gewachs Riesling represents a producer’s top wine sourced from what is lawfully defined as a Grand Cru vineyard. When you strive to drink the best German Riesling on the planet look no further than “GG”. No other dry white wine seduces and overwhelms the senses with such charm and class. Alluring, persuasive aromatics promising a hedonistic fruit set with volumes of extract contained within a chiseled physique. These wines are of such splendor that modern vocabulary can’t adequately describe them. Pop one open, decant, and let their wares tell the story.

FRENCH WHITES

FRANCE

“Winemaking in France is not a new phenomenon: archaeological evidence of production dates back to the late 1st century CE, following the Romans’ conquest of Gaul.” French wine, simply stated, can be thought of as the true embodiment of Classicism. For example, White Burgundy, generally Chardonnay, brings to mind some of the most sought after and imitated wines on the planet. Styles range from the austere, mineral driven wines of Chablis to the oaked, beautifully round styles of the Cote de Beaune and Cote Chalonnaise. It truly is worth the time, money, and effort to seek out and enjoy these wines as they will repay you with a tremendous amount of pleasure and enjoyment. Who knows, perhaps even leaving such an impression that you will be forever changed. Also to note, please don’t miss the Marcel Deiss wines- a master of blending the noble grapes of Al- sace (Riesling, Muscat, Pinot gris, and Gewurz-traminer) In one terroir.

FRANCE

When it comes to red wine, France is the birthplace to some of the most popular and sought after grapes in the world. Bordeaux for example, is the home of the well structured Cabernet Sauvignon and the bold but velvety Merlot grapes. Burgundy is where the elegant Pinot Noir grape made its claim to fame; and the Rhone Valley is where one can find some of the best expressions of Syrah dominated wines in the North and Grenache blends to the South.

PIEMONTE: BARBERA, DOLCETTO AND OTHER NOTABLE WINES

PIEMONTE

Piedmont, the home of white truffles, vermouth, and the House of Savoy, is second only to Tuscany in the renown of its red wines. Piedmont, literally meaning “foot of the mountain”, is bordered to the North by the Swiss Alps, and it is in the foothills of the Alps that the best wine is produced. Nebbiolo is the king of grape varieties here. Early to blossom and late to ripen, the grape produces the massively complex and quixotically elegant wines known as Barolo and Barbaresco, which are both produced by law with 100% Nebbiolo. These wines can age for decades as their massive tannins settle. Piedmont is also home to Barbera and Dolcetto, more youthful and fruit forward wines produced from their native namesake varietals. Yet when they are planted in the right vineyard sites alongside Nebbiolo, they often produce richly complex wines.

BARBERA, DOLCETTO, AND OTHER NOTABLE WINES

As in the rest of Italy, Piedmont is home to indigenous varietals, all with eminently drinkable character. Barbera and Dolcetto are Piedmontese neighbors of Nebbiolo. What they lack in austerity and tannic might, they make up for with rich fruit profiles and healthy acidity, which makes these varietal wines fantastic food companions. With the right conditions, these wines can sometimes age for a decade or more. Dolcetto exudes lean notes of wild bramble berries and black tea with bright fruit driven acidity. Barbera is the rounder, more fruit forward of these two varietals, and one of our favorite food wines. Barolo and Barbaresco lovers can also find awesome wines from neighboring DOC’s.

PIEMONTE: BARBARESCO (THE QUEEN)

PIEMONTE

Italy’s answer to Burgundy lies in the Nebbiolo-producing villages of Piedmont. Made with solely Nebbiolo grapes, this is the more graceful brother of the wines produced in the neighboring Barolo region. Although Barbaresco shares similarities with Barolo, it is considered the more elegant and approachable of the two noble reds of Piedmont. It is little more than 10km from the village of Barolo, but Barbaresco hugs the river Tenaro a bit more tightly (which offers a moderating effect on climate) and vineyard sites tend to be slightly less steep and lower altitude. Barbaresco shares the translucent brick red coloring of its neighbor, Barolo, along with a nose of tar, rose petals, and white truffles on a loamy forest floor. Rich flavors of raspberry, cherry, licorice, and fennel on the palate.

PIEMONTE: BAROLO (THE KING)

PIEMONTE

“The Wine of Kings and the King of Wines.” this standard bearer of Italian vino is produced in an area encircling the village of Barolo. Barolo is generally considered more austere and “masculine” than its Barbaresco counterpart, and is also made with 100% Nebbiolo grapes. By law, Barolo is aged in oak for a minimum of three years before release, with the “Riserva” designation being given at five years. Barolo is a powerhouse wine, possessing the tannic structure and acidic balance to age for decades. It is recognized for its aromatic bouquet of tar and roses, brick red translucent appearance despite its full body, and rich flavors or raspberry, chocolate, and violets. Smokey notes of fennel, white truffles, and star anise abound. Burgundy, meet your match.

VENETO

VENETO: IN VERONA WHERE WE LAY OUR SCENE

Veneto, located in the Northwest of Italy, is the home of some of Italy’s greatest red wines, and is most commonly recognized as the home of Prosecco, Italy’s most renowned sparkling wine. It often tops the list as Italy’s largest wine producing region. Despite the volume of their production, world famous wines adored by many a wine aficionado and sommelier can be found in Veneto. Amarone della Valpolicella DOCG, one of the richest, statuesque, and complex wines in the world, has been crafted for centuries by hand-harvesting and drying the grapes for months to concentrate the flavors before fermentation, known as the appassimento process. It is amongst Italy’s biggest and boldest red wines, with opulent, densely packed flavors of cherry, plum, raisin, and spice that are capable of decades of aging, which produces unmatched depth. Amarone’s baby brother, Valpolicella Ripasso, is made with the same grapes as Amarone (Corvina, Rondinella, and Molinara), but represents a great value at a much lower price. The juice of Valpolicella Ripasso (meaning “re-passed”) goes through a second fermentation over the skins, seeds, and the other delicious bits remaining from the Amarone process, adding complexity and depth.

BRUNELLO DI MONTALCINO

TOSCANO

Brunello di Montalcino holds the throne of Italian wine. Brunello is a wine of broad structure, with great concentration, suppleness, longevity, and above all else, power. For centuries, Chianti remained the most prolific and renowned wine of Tuscany and even Italy as a whole, but this has changed. It was much more recently that Brunello di Montalcino burst onto the scene when one of its best producers released two vintages for tasting from the 1890s, both of which showed tremendous shape and excellent quality after having undergone the greater part of a century aging in their cellars. Brunello di Montalcino comes from a specific clone, or strain, of Sangiovese (the grape of Chianti). This clone is known as Brunello, or Sangiovese Grosso. These are wines that need the greater part of a decade or more before they shed their youthfulness and harmonize their flavors. However, some winemakers such as Argiano and Camigliano are producing more modern Brunellos fit for earlier consumption.

CHIANTI

TOSCANO

Chianti has taken its place as the most recognizable Italian wine. Historically encased in straw-covered flasks, these cheap versions can be found peppering the red and white checkered tablecloths of Italian restaurants worldwide. Despite appearances, Chianti that is produced in the heart of the Chianti region, is labeled Chianti Classico and the Riserva designation is for those wines that have been aged in oak for at least three years. While Chianti’s vary tremendously in style, they all tend to share an earthy bright cherry bouquet, floral notes, spices, and food-friendly acidity.

BOLGHERI AND THE SUPER TUSCANS

TOSCANO

The Super Tuscan wave began in the 1970’s after a small group of Tuscan winemakers became frustrated with the DOC and DOCG laws created in 1963, which strictly regulated how they make their wines. These producers began crafting high quality avant-garde wines under the less prestigious Vino da Tavola designation that garnered immense international praise. In order to distinguish their wines within the Vino da Tavola category they coined the term Super Tuscan wines. The Indicazione Geografica Tipica (IGT) appellation was created to indicate that these wines are of higher quality than table wine, but do not meet DOC or DOCG regulations for their region. These wines often include international varietals and tend to be rich, are worthy, and expensive. Classic examples are Sassicaia, recognition for its excellence and historic importance, Tenuta San Guido and its Sassicaia wine were awarded their own monopole, Bolgheri Sassicaia DOC.
