James Suckling 91 points, WA 90+. THE 2015 VINTAGE WAS ITALIAN WHITE WINE OF THE YEAR. The 2016 vintage follows in the same vein of its predecessor in delivering excellent quality at a very fair price. The Fondazione Italiana Sommelier has voted this remarkable wine as the winner of the "Oscar" for Italian White Wine of the Year 2016. (April 2016). "Editor's Note Wine Spectator Dec 2016 Thai basil and spice notes lace the creamy mix of Asian pear, white peach, stone and lemon zest in this well-knit white. Light- to medium-bodied and fresh, with a lingering, savory finish. Drink now through 2020. 10,800 cases made.–AN" This underpriced...
We have been looking for a good example of this style for a long time and we think we have it nailed with this one. Too often you will find sparkling moscato expressed as overly sweet, cloying and boring. This beauty however has a great acid backbone that lifts the fruit, tames the sweetness in the middle palate and delivers a long and deliciously sweet finish with no hint of cloying. Delightful as an aperatif, served ice cold.
~ Buy Six and Pay $30 net Each ~ Mix and Match with other Bibi wines is fine we will manually invoice you afterwards. Casamatta at the very beginning was an IGT Toscana, but Bibi was not 100% satisfied about the results. So in 2010 he decided to bet on a bizarre way of production, solera method. Everybody thought he was completely mad, because in Italy there is no appellations for Solera so the only way to produce a solera was to declassify from IGT Toscana to No Vintage. At that time Casamatta (which translates as mad house in English) was probably the only solera made in Italy. Bibi’s vision was that by mixing different vintages the wine...
Arneis is a white wine grape variety from Italy's much-respected Piedmont wine region. In a story shared by several renascent grape varieties (most obviously Viognier), Arneis has been rescued from the verge of extinction and is now enjoying something of a revival. By the 1960s, just a few hectares of Arneis vines remained, and only a handful of producers were making the wine. There are now more than 1500 acres (605ha) of Arneis vines in Piedmont, and small quantities are also grown in California, Australia and New Zealand. This wine is a crisp, fresh and vibrant example of arneis. The nose is all about fresh cut white flowers with a hint of...
A new offering from Pelissero. Only 4000 bottles produced. Tasting sheet: yellow–green shades with shiny reflections announce a rich and full–bodied wine. Honey aromas, butter, flint, tobacco, tea with fruity notes of apricot, pear, citrus fruits such as lemon and grapefruit, or plants such as thyme, sage, nettles and hawthorn. Structured taste, tasty with a good acidulous and mineral note typical of our sea-origin soils.
This delicious Vernaccia is a very enjoyable wine with a straw-yellow color and golden reflections. The aroma is refined and delicate, with fruity and floral overtones, whereas the palate is dry, well-balanced and full-flavored. The almond scent of the finish is highly characteristic of the varietal. " ... And not far away, there was a stream of Vernaccia wine, the finest that was ever drunk, without a single drop of water in it” So said Maso when describing to Calandrino the fantastic land of Bengodi in a novella of the Decameron. But it was not just Boccaccio who inserted this wine in the wonderful scenarios of his tales – in actual...

Vermentino is a white wine varietal indigenous to Sardinia but also known by other names in Italy and France. One common feature of all forms is most obviously their refreshing acidity and attractive aromas of peach, lemon peel, dried herbs and a whiff of saline minerality. Serve ice cold.
Classic textbook pinot grigio at its best. Pinot Grigio is more than just the Italian name for Pinot Gris. Although the two names refer to a single grape variety, the wine styles they represent are clearly distinct from one another. The difference between Pinot Grigio wines and Pinot Gris wines is so clear and well-established that the two are often treated as if they were two distinct varieties. The refreshing Pinot Grigio style has enjoyed great success in various countries, most recently the United States, (where it is fondly nicknamed "Greej") and Australia. The most common descriptors of the style are "light", "crisp" and "dry". These...
