It's always a joy when we get new bubbles and the Cima da Conegliano does not disappoint. In contrast to other proseccos, the Cima is much more glycerol and silky in texture. Accompanied by an abundance of upfront pear and quince on the palate, this bottle of bubbles is a definite crowd pleaser!

A new Direct Import Prosecco for us and wow are we lucky to have it! Unlike many prosecco's that can leave you underwhelmed with its simple characteristics, the Cima da Conegliano displays a Broader, Richer, Spicier style while retaining its minerality and acidity. Nice fruit shows through on the nose and palate as well.

This is a delightful discovery. There is wonderful pear fruit flavors with a touch of peppery spice. This would be a terrific aperitif for sipping in warm weather or even better - how about a salad of arugula with caramelized pears and asiago cheese drizzled with a floral olive oil.

- Once named Enotria for its abundant vineyards, Italy (thanks to the ancient Greeks and Romans) has had an enormous impact on the wine world. From the shores of Italy, the Romans brought grapes and their winemaking techniques to North Africa, Spain and Portugal, Germany, France, the Danube Valley, the Middle East and even England. Modern Italy, which didn't actually exist as a country until the 1870s, once produced mainly simple, everyday wine. It wasn't until the 1970s that Italy began the change toward quality. The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages. The entire Italian peninsula is seeing a winemaking revolution and is now one of the most exciting wine Region in the world. For our entire Italian wine selection, click here.
