We were incredibly successful with the 2010 vintage of this wine, and I was quite sad to see it come to an end. However, I'm super stoked to say the 2011 is even better. Whereas the 2010 was a little softer with riper, more opulent fruit, the 2011 comes across with a more zesty, refreshing crispness, with the fruit flavors tending more towards lemon and orange zest as opposed to the more melon-y, almost tropical fruit profile of the previous vintage. More spicy herbaceousness, minerality and crunchy acidity as well. If the 2010 was worthy of a $20+ dollar price tag and an absolute steal at this price, the 2011 is even more so. CM

Italy

- 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.
