Monte Rossa Brut Prima Cuvee
Monte Rossa has been a byword for constant innovation in Franciacorta since 1972, thanks to the innovative leadership of the Rabotti family.  An attractive and stylish personality radiates from this Franciacorta, obtained from Chardonnay, Pinot Bianco and Pinot Nero grapes, with a soft, almost silky, and gracefully balanced palate.

Ferrari Brut
A true pioneer, Giulio Ferrari dreamed of creating a sparkling wine that could compete with the best – and his hunch that the terroir of Trentino would make for a fine sparkling wine paid off. To date, the Ferrari vineyard remains the largest zone planted with Chardonnay in Italy. Made with 100% Chardonnay grapes, harvested by hand in late August and early September, this bollicine boasts a lively, straw yellow color, a fresh and fruity nose, and a harmonious, well-balanced palate.

Villa Sandi Prosecco DOCG
Villa Sandi is located in Montello, Veneto, and has been devoted to wine culture for many generations. The Moretti Polegato family, owner of the Villa, have fostered this ancient tradition by making Villa Sandi the headquarters of the winery, and by promoting grape growing in the area on a modern basis. This blend of Glera, Chardonnay, and Pinot Blanc has aromas of ripe golden apples, acacia, and honeysuckle on the nose. On the palate, the wine is dry, fresh and fruit-driven with citrus and stone-fruit flavors.

Cleto Chiarli Lambrusco Cialdini
Founded in 1860, Cleto Chiarli winery was the very first wine-producing company in the Emilia-Romagna region. For more than 150 years, the family has been producing a full-range of elegant wines, including their ever-popular Lambrusco typical of Emilia-Romagna. This classic, deeply-colored Lambrusco has mix of tangy cranberry and ripe blackberry dominate the palate, along with dark, potting soil-like earth and a dry finish.

Fontanafredda Serralunga d'Alba Barolo 2014
A renowned producer of Barolo, the “king of wines,” Fontanafredda has been noble since the start. The winery was founded in 1858 by Count Emanuele Alberto di Mirafiore on the hunting grounds of his father, King Vittorio Emanuele II. Barolo Serralunga by Fontanafredda is a true gem, decisive and forceful, with chords of vanilla, spice, faded rose petals and woodland undergrowth.

Mirafiore Barolo 2014
Mirafiore was founded in 1858 by Emanuele Mirafiore, son of Italy's King Vittorio Emanuele II. With its range of unique wines, highly distinctive in origin, character and personality, by the end of the century Mirafiore had become an epoch-making model for Italian winemaking. Ruby-red with garnet highlights, this Barolo has a sumptuous bouquet, with clear-cut overtones of ripe plums, tobacco, mint, rosemary, cinnamon and dried mushrooms.

Certosa di Belriguardo Chianti Classico
Wine has always been one of the passions of Gianna Nannini who, engaging the services of qualified winemaking experts, first and foremost the oenologist Renzo Cotarella, has ensured that Certosa di Belriguardo has become one of the most renowned and interesting estates in the area. This floral red, a blend of 95% Sangiovese and 5% Merlot, boasts pretty notes of violets and red fruits, which lead into a dry finish with a touch of soft tannins.

Donnafugata "Sherazade" Nero D'Avola
Since 1851, the Donnafugata family has been in the business of making high-quality Italian wines, each with their own personality for different occasions. Sherazade 2018 has a brilliant ruby red color with violet reflections. The nose offers a pleasantly fruity bouquet with fragrant notes of red plum and sour cherry, combined with light spicy scents.

Firriato Etna Rosso
Firriato was created by Salvatore Di Gaetano and Vinzia Novara Di Gaetano. Passionate about Sicilian wine, the husband-and-wife duo decided to start making their own by pairing ancient regional traditions with innovative cutting-edge technology. With beautiful inviting aromatics of fresh strawberries, cherries, wet stones, spices, smoke, earth and herbs all coming together and soaring from the glass, this bright, mineral driven blend of Nerello Mascalese and Nerello Cappuccio continues to shine through the fresh finish.
