2017 La Giacosa Springlot Reserve Chardonnay
Our 100% Chardonnay is a modern style Chardonnay which is crisp, clean and has loads of pineapple on the nose and pineapple with layers of citrus on the palate. A refreshing all occasion wine to enjoy by itself or with a great al fresco lunch salad. Think of arugula, grilled chicken, shaved parmigiano, lemon juice and olive oil!
Pineapple and vanilla notes on the nose with added citrus tones on the palate and good, forward fruit. A crisp, refreshing sipper that is also great with mild cheeses or seafood. "Leggero" (leh-jer-oh) means light, as in "not heavy".
Calabrese Pinot Grigio
This is our estate grown Pinot Grigio done in the true Northern Italian style with good skin contact at crush. Traditional lemon citrus notes on the palate with nuanced layers of various citrus tones and a tease of stone fruits. The Calabrese pairs great with white pizza, chicken, or seafood Caesar, or roast poultry or pork.
La Boheme Viognier
Old world styled with subtle pear and melon on the nose and tropical fruit and citrus notes on the palate and a lingering finish. It is wonderful with pates, smoked trout, goat cheese, or well aged Gouda.
Gatto Bianco [non-vintage]
An off-dry white with a great sassy attitude, reminiscent of the whites from the Italian Piemonte. A pineapple and pear nose with a palate of citrus pineapple, pear and melon with a surprisingly long finish. Great with seafood! Look for the sassy white cat on the label!
This is a guest wine we have available for those who like a little sparkle!
A delightful, imported Italian sparkler! Balanced carbonation, great acidity and clean citrusy notes. Rotating selections based on availability.
Cano Pazzo Rose' [non-vintage]
A beautiful dry Rosé wine made in the traditional way from the fermenting juice of our estate Sangiovese one or two days after fermentation starts. Cano Pazzo has hints of dried roses and cherries on the nose, spice and cherry hints on the palate. Think of Cano Pazzo with fresh prosciutto, aged parmesan or pecorino, and some great bread! Enjoy!
IL Signor Reserve Sangiovese
The Signor is our winemaker's selection of the prime Hungarian Oak barrels of estate Sangiovese, aged a minimum of ten months in oak. The nose is traditional for Sangiovese with truffle, earth, leather and a hint of caramel. On the palate it gives round supple mouth feel, cherry, berry, red fruits, coffee and toast notes, and a smooth finish with hints of olive on the finish. Great by itself or with pasta, roast chicken, veal or lamb.
IL Volpe Sangiovese
A first class trip in a bottle to Tuscany. The IL Volpe is 75% Sangiovese and 25% Cabernet Franc. It has a beautiful deep garnet color and is opulent and smooth on the palate. The nose is rich with truffle, leather and berry notes and the palate is cherry, coffee, toast and light mocha with caramel notes. Pair with meats, pastas, risotto or just sip it.
The princely grape of the Italian Piemonte, used for Barolo and Barbaresco, and estate grown at Three Fox Vineyards on the Virginia Piedmont. Elegant with great structure, black cherry, dark red fruit, and spice notes, good forward fruit and a symphony of flavors in the finish.
La Trovatella Merlot
Our estate grown Merlot is a delight, loaded with black cherry, blackberry, mocha and toast hints. The mouth-feel is opulent and smooth. A wonderful wine to enjoy now or to lay down for future delights! This is among the few wines we blend in a more French style., with 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc, making it reminiscent of a right-bank Bordeaux (think St. Emilion or Pomerol). This is a great steak and cigar wine!
Alouette Cabernet Franc
Our 100% estate Cabernet Franc is a rich opulent mouth filling wine with loads of chocolate, black cherry, berry, toast, coffee, mild spice and a developing hint of caramel on the aftertaste. Can be enjoyed now or be laid down for 10 – 15 years with proper cellaring. Excellent with a juicy steak, a fine cigar, dark chocolates, or for relaxing sipping just by itself.
Rosso Dolce Chambourcin [non-vintage]
Rosso Dolce (sweet red) is our “port alternative”. Chambourcin is a hybrid originally from the Loire Valley of France (still grown there) and now much grown in Virginia. Rosso Dolce, at 6% sugar, has strong red fruits notes with a subtle chocolate, port-like undercurrent and finish. You can enjoy a port-like experience without the high alcohol level of a true port. Try it with your favorite chocolate dessert for a real treat! Packaged in "Bellisimo" 375 ml bottles just right for a bit of after-dinner fun.
