Antica Torino Vino Chinato (750ml)
Review Date: 02-05-2022
The primary flavoring element is the bark of the Chinchona tree, which is filled with revitalizing quinine and aids greatly in digestion. It makes a perfect pair for dark chocolate desserts or sipped alone after a long meal. This is one of the Best I have had in a looooong time.

Montechiara Prosecco
Review Date: 06-05-2021
Italian bubbles for Eleven bucks, what did we just step back in time? Nope just another Great bargain wine from K & L! This is the perfect wine for all your parties all year long, for there is nothing better than Prosecco, for crowd pleasing and value. This has a light straw yellow hue and has a fine mousse and delicate, with a long-lasting bead. On the nose you will find generous fruit, releasing hints of pear and nectarines. The palate has wonderful balance and elegance, dry & crisp, but admirable fullness and length, closely mirroring the nose. The perfect party wine all year long. Don't forget to grab a bottle of Aperol Aperitivo for your Spritz's.

San Venanzio Fortunato Brut Prosecco di Valdobbiadene Superiore
Review Date: 08-08-2018
This is a wine of great balance and elegance and an excellent aperitif for all social occasions. A must have for the end of summer and fall seasons, for yourself and if guests drop by. On the nose you will find generous fruit, releasing hints of apples, peaches and tropical fruit, plus wisteria blossoms, wonderful balance and elegance complement a pleasurably spiciness. The Palate is velvety, crisp, and fruity, admirable fullness and length, closely mirroring the nose.

Blason Isonzo Bianco (3L Bag-in-a-Box) (cannot ship)
Review Date: 05-18-2017
Back by popular demand. I think there is no tastier, more versatile white wine in our store right now. This is three liters (that’s like four bottles), and there is nothing that beats this Pinot Bianco for value and pure drinkability. It combines the body and weight of Chardonnay (to which it is distantly related) and the minerality and freshness of Pinot Grigio. The perfect cocktail white. We sold out of this quickly last summer, so buy a couple of these. This is a great wine to serve at your Labor Day party, for camping, or just for the last warm days of an Indian summer. Sadly, we cannot ship this wine.

Amara Sicilian Amaro d'Arancia Rossa (750ml)
Review Date: 08-19-2015
WOW! is the first thing that comes to mind when I taste this. Amara is a more feminine approach to an Amaro that is the philosophy of the producer of this unique concoction. From the slopes of Etna, the highest active volcano in Europe, there is acres of citrus groves, pride of the ancient tradition. Only in this area because of the nature of the terrain and the strong temperature grow the famous Red Oranges of Sicily. This is made with those blood oranges and herbs and has nice viscosity and incredible aftertaste. This just came in & I have been anticipating its arrival for quite some time and I will be enjoying straight over ice or as a Spritz with orange rind, as well as in various combinations in modern cocktails. TWO thumbs up from Guido ( Mike Parres)

Alexandre Le Brun "Tradition" Brut Champagne
Review Date: 05-08-2015
It is medium-bodied Champagne that seems effortless and is very well integrated. This makes a great aperitif, but like many other Champagnes will also make a great partner with sushi.
