      Aglianico del Molise DOC 2014 (BIO)

      The pure Aglianico Biorganic shows itself in a dense ruby violet. Fascinating scent of black currant and blackberry with notes of liquorice, smoke and earth. Of beautiful purity, rich and with spicy accents on the palate. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Dark bright red-ruby. Expressive aromas and flavors of redcurrant, licorice, and cocoa, complicated by underbrush and pungently perfumed flowers. Bright, silky and ripe but with lovely energy giving the herbal and red fruit flavors a crisp quality. Finishes with a hint of menthol and repeating red cherry nuances." Ian d’Agata (vinous.com)

      "The 2016 Dolcetto d'Alba Munfrina is a tasty, mid-weight offering with good brightness to its red and purplish-toned fruit. In this vintage, the Munfrina is a touch slender, which is a departure from the richer style of 2015, but more typical for Dolcetto." Antonio Galloni

    • "RADICE" Lambrusco di Sorbara DOC 2018 secco

      “RADICE” Lambrusco di Sorbara DOC 2018 secco

      Out with the cliché, in with the surprise!

      Even the most famous Lambrusco plant of the Paltrinieris will fill every connoisseur with joy. Radice is produced using the Pét Nat process (Metodo Ancestrale) and therefore undergoes a second fermentation on its own yeast after bottling. This naturally cloudy drop convinces already in the Bouquet with notes of rhubarb, a fresh citrus note and some bread. The persistent, fine perlage and its drinkable character make it a racy companion to hearty-spicy antipasti, light meat dishes or simply a lively celebration in the midst of nature and cheerful people. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Quite reductive at first, but the funk dissipates for the most part to reveal white rose petals and cranberries. Dry and flavorful with refined bubbles and loads of tangy acidity on the fine finish. Textured and delicate yet intense." James Suckling

      "One of the best Lambruscos out there, this delicious, vibrant wine opens with enticing scents of wild red berry, yellow stone fruit, citrus blossom and a yeasty, comforting whiff of pastry dough. Made by carrying out the secondary fermentation in the bottle, the dry, delicious palate delivers pink grapefruit, crushed strawberry and tangerine alongside crisp acidity and a saline note."

      “Alèxandros” Greco di Tufo DOCG 2016

      Alexandros is a beautifully complex and expressive white from Campania. The aromas of light stone fruit, flowers and a fine minerality come together in a harmonious fragrance. Crisp clean taste with a fresh finish. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Ripe apple and floral notes are layered with lemon curd and poached apricot flavors in this well-cut, light- to medium-bodied white. Offers a minerally, lightly spiced finish." Wine Spectator

      "Stone fruit features prominently here, partly in the form of peach pit. There is also elderflower and papaya up for grabs. A full, rich palate that remains tangy and driven on layers of fruit. Fennel undertones. Long finish." James Suckling

      "Bright and dense in the mouth, offering Greco-typical chewiness along with fresh, clean, ripe tropical fruit, peach and pear flavors that linger impressively. Finishes with saline and bittersweet herb nuances. Much livelier, deeper and fresher than the 2015 and 2017 vintages of this wine." Vinous
