Italy : Valle d’Aosta
Barbera, Friesa, Ciliegiolo, Dolcetto, Gamay, Petit Rouge, Fumin, Premetta
LIGHT-MEDIUM BODIED, RED FRUIT, CRISP, SOFT TANNIN, NEUTRAL OAK
From the valley between the French and Italian Alps, the region is known more for ski resorts than grapes. However this wine is worth the effort. Red fruit and spice intertwine with earth and soft tannins to create a lovely red, even better with a chill.

Gaglioppo, a native variety to the Italian “boot”, is sometimes referred to the “Nebbiolo of the South”. The palate is rich, full and dominated by sweet fruit. Aromas of red cherry, cranberry and red roses that transfer to the palate, which has dusty tannins and a nice long finish. Umami galore!
Spain : Vinos de Madrid
Garnacha, Syrah, Cariñena
LIGHT-MEDIUM BODIED, RED/BLACK FRUIT, SOFT TANNIN, NEUTRAL OAK
Fresh, lively, and wonderful with a slight chill. Jammy red and black fruits dominate the nose and palate, with noticeable minerality and acidity. Mellow tannins round out this exciting red coming from the Madrid region.
