2014 La Monacesca Verdicchio di Matelica Top Pick!
2014 La Monacesca Verdicchio di Matelica

90 points Wine & Spirits: "Full reviews to follow on their Aug 2016 issue:" (8/2016) K&L Notes: Though the 2014 has yet to be professionally reviewed, the 2013 bottling earned 91 points and accolades from Antonio Galloni's Vinous: "Medium-deep gold-tinged yellow. Enticing aromas of apricot, savory herbs and minerals. Rich, ripe stone fruit and balsamic herb flavors are nicely buoyed by lively acidity. The long finish features resonating mineral lift. This outstanding, archetypal Verdicchio wine speaks clearly of the cooler Matelica terroir." (06/2015)

2015 Terre da Vino Roero Arneis

Winemaker notes: "The pre-eminent growing area for the arneis grape is the Roero, the area of magnificent hills on the left bank of the Tanaro river. Here, the calcareo-siliceous soils encourage the development of perfumed, elegant wines. After a gentle pressing, the must is given a cultured-yeast fermentation for some 10 days at 16-18°C. A final crucial step is a brief maturation in the bottle to further improve the structure of the wine and the complexity of its bouquet. Colour: Deep straw yellow with greenish highlights. Bouquet: Generous, crisp, and... Read More »

2014 Ermacora Pinot Grigio Colli Orientali del Friuli

Producer Note: "A classic wine for the entire meal, a wonderful accompainment to hams and young cold cuts, eggplant, fish dishes and white meats. The "Grigio" holds the second place in our production. The grapes, balanced and mature, offer a wine with Mediterranean hints of pear, peach and dried flowers. The taste of Pinot Grigio is fat and complex due to notes of melon, baked apple and tropical fruit, with hints of apricot. When young, it is a pleasant wine for its fresh and acid note."

2013 Antinori "Cervaro della Sala" Chardonnay Umbria

94 points James Suckling: "A dense and layered white with cooked apple, pineapple and vanilla cream character. Full body, bright acidity and a long, tangy finish. Always a great white from Italy. One of the best. A blend of Chardonnay and Grechetto given the full Burgundy method in fermenting and aging." (10/2015) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "I never get enough of this beautiful wine. The 2013 Cervaro della Sala is mostly Chardonnay (80%) blended with an Umbrian native grape, Grechetto.

2014 Ermacora Pinot Bianco Colli Orientali del Friuli

We started importing the wines of this small family-owned winery in Colli Orientali de Friuli (not far from the Slovenian border) with the 2001 vintage. Back then they were far better known in Italy, where they have continuously garnered accolades from Gambero Rosso, but these days they have quite a following here at K&L, too. Vintage after vintage the wines from the brothers Ermacora (Dario and Luciano) sell out very quickly. And they still adhere to the motto: Do little, in order to do better.

2014 Vietti Arneis Roero

Vietti's Roero Arneis is one of the most delicious and consistent versions of this varietal we carry every vintage. The grapes for this wine come from 25-year-old vines in Santo Stefano Roero. Fermented in stainless, they suppress malo to preserve the crisp acidity and freshness. And it is fresh, with mineral accents that complement its floral, citrus and melon aromas and flavors. Delightful with food.

Always a bargain from one of K&L's favorite direct imports. The 37-acre Blason property in Gradisca d'Inzonzo, owned by Giovanni and Valentina Blason, is just a few miles from the Slovenian border. Their Friulano is always rich and complex, but balanced, with round frut, minerality and hints of savory herbs.

2013 Le Marsure Pinot Grigio

One of the best deals going in Pinot Grigio, this wine is from the Grave del Friuli DOC, an area perfectly suited to the varietal. The 2013 is crisp, fruity and fresh, exhibiting that classic subtle bitter hint on the palate that makes it such an ideal match with dishes like spaghetti with clams, or sauteed freshwater trout. It also makes a fine pairing with sushi. Enjoy while young and fresh.

91 points Vinous: "Green-tinged yellow; less gold in color than the Furore Bianco. Apple, sage and flowers on the bright nose are complicated by a note of liquid slate. The flavors of apple, pear and mint are similarly joined by mineral nuances. Finishes broad, smooth and persistent. I find this much fresher and more precise than the Furore Bianco."

2014 Valle dell'Acate "Tenuta Ibidini" Insolia Sicilia

Impressive for its purity and refreshing mineral qualities, Valle dell'Acate takes the Inzolia varietal to a whole new level of quality. As a second label, the Case Ibidini range (pronounced 'bidini) consists of varietally labeled wines from the estate intended for more casual consumption. The local name of the area where the estate is situated, Bidini, is drawn from the ancient root Bidis. This in turn referred to the name of a group of early Hellenic settlers who populated the area nearly 20 centuries ago. These wines provide a purity and authenticity ... Read More »

Vines are planted in near vertical fashion on a sea facing cliff and range in altitude from 100 meters above sea level to an impressive 750 meters. That's a steep drop.

This is a fresh and clean expression of the grape with bright notes of citrus, peach, pear, white flower and honey. Sur lie aging gives the wine good tension and density in the mouth.

Not many people have heard of the Italian wine Pigato, but you'll certainly be happy you did once you try it! The 2012 was even a pleasant surprise for K&L Italian wine buyer Greg St. Clair: "Ligurian whites don't normally make me jump up and down but this Pigato has been the best of its kind for me. Yes it has the classic length, and fresh acidity one expects in an un-oaked Ligurian white but it is the palate weight and balance that set it apart, so supple and enticing still with the bright acidity and saltiness one gets in coastal Italian whites.

Frascati doesn't have the best reputation--it's often the innocuous white wine served as "house wine" across Rome--but this one from Casale Marchese transcends any preconceived notions. Made from Malvasia del Lazio, Trebbiano Toscano, Malvasia di Candia, Bonvino and Bellone grown on family farms in the Tusculo hills and brought to us by one of our favorite Italian importers, Oliver McCrum (it's how you KNOW it's going to be good), this is fresh and delightful.

2014 Erste e Neue Pinot Bianco

Italy known for good large, co-operative wineries. (A few good co-ops exist in other regions, but not lots of them in one region.) This top-notch wine comes from the co-op Erste + Neue, which is right in the center of Caldaro, one of the small towns on the "Wine Road" south of Bolzano. They make the range of white wines that you would expect, Sauvignon, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris (and an excellent Müller Thurgau). Gerhard Sanin, the enologist for E+N, favors a bright, restrained winemaking style that really allows this place and these varieties to shine.

We've heard it a number of times, even from people knowledgeable about wine--that the wines of Lazio are really nothing special, just simple quaffers. Well, Giampiero Bea's collaboration with the Sisters at Monastero Suore, a Cistercian monastery in Vitorchiana, 90 minues north of Rome, produces one of the finest Italian wines we've ever tasted and IT'S from Lazio. The Coenobium is a white table wine fermented on its skins that comes from the Malvasia, Verdicchio, Grechetto and Trebbiano vines the Sisters tend organically.

Raccaro was founded in 1928 when the current proprietor's grandfather originally set it up as their family farm.
