2020 Iacopo Paolucci, Il Ponziano, Trebbiano Spoletino, Umbria $19.99
Geek alert: Last year, the 2019 was one of our most popular Italian white wines, and I think the 2020 might be even better. From the central Italian region of Umbria, Iacopo Paolucci is focused on cultivating organically grown indigenous grape varieties like Trebbiano Spoletino, a variety related to, but much more noble than other varieties under the Trebbiano umbrella.  With four days of skin contact (this is not an orange wine!), the Il Ponziano is a golden straw color and offers enticing aromas of wildflowers, peach skin, and dried apricots.  The succulent medium-bodied palate is complex with flavors of ripe pears, orange zest, apricots, and a hint of sage with a vein of minerality running through the wine.  Wow - simply delicious!

2010 Perillo, Taurasi, Campania, Italy $57.99 bottle / $317.94($52.99) per six-pack
As one of Italy's most exciting big red wines, Taurasi can be glorious, but there are, sadly, just a few great examples. Luckily, we discovered the exceptional small producer Perillo. Michele Perillo and family continue a tradition of winemaking that dates back to 1887. The family estate is up in the tiny village of Castelfranci, an hour’s drive from Naples and 1600 feet above sea level with Aglianico vines planted in 1930. This is easily my favorite Taurasi. I love its earth-driven nose and palate, delicious plummy fruit, and notes of blood orange, licorice, and leather framed by velvety noble tannins. Precision, power and elegance. It’s thrilling to drink now with lamb, beef, pasta with mushrooms or red sauce, but will continue to improve for many years. If Taurasi is “the Barolo of the south,” then this is the Bartolo Mascarello of Taurasi. There is a lot going on here! “In Castelfranci, one of the highest villages of Irpinia, the Baiano vineyard is the source of this outstanding wine. A rethinking of Aglianico identity, it’s dense garnet in the glass, full of fresh wild-strawberry aromas with earthy tones of boiled beetroot, smoky woodland and tar. If the red-fruit character is fairly atypical for Aglianico, the fresh profile is supported by chewy, ripe tannins and firm acidity. The savoury finish is amazing. A more elegant style of Aglianico, thanks to the altitude, the vintage and winemaking. Drinking Window 2021 - 2030" - 95 Aldo Fiordelli, Decanter

2021 Jean-Marie Reverdy, Sancerre Blanc, La Villaudiere $25.99
This mineral-driven white is all about Sancerre terroir.  Aromas of oregano, lime, pink grapefruit, peach, chalk and flinty minerals light up the aromatic profile. The palate shows excellent balance with an intense mineral vein complementing the focused flavors of fennel, mint, chalky minerality and tangy gooseberry fruit while offering a lush, textured and crisp refreshing herbal finish. Enjoy over the next two to three years with goat cheese tarts, fresh water fish, asparagus, roast chicken with herbs or just on its own.

2019 Shiba Wichern, Pinot Noir, Willamette Valley, OR $24.99
Yes, a sub $25 Willamette Valley worth getting excited about - very rare these days. Shiba Wichern is a tiny winery focused on making balanced, harmonious elegant Pinot Noirs and in the ultra classic 2019 vintage, this vision is fully realized. Crystalline red cherry and strawberry fruit and subtle spices, align with floral notes and a hint of truffle. This beguiling wine is ready to play.

2018 Eyrie, Chardonnay “The Eyrie” (formerly “Reserve” & “Original Vines”) Dundee Hills, Willamette Valley, OR $54.89 bottle / $311.94($51.99) six-pack
Eyrie put Willamette Valley Chardonnay on the map back in the ‘70s with vintages that not only stayed fresh for 15+ years, but also improved with age and gained in complexity. Hailing from the outstanding 2018 growing season, this vintage of Eyrie Estate Chardonnay will take its place along with great past vintages. The nose is ultra-pure, as is the texturally pleasing palate. Aged in neutral barrels, this wine is unencumbered by new oak and is allowed to express its shimmering fruit, minerality and balancing acidity in a crystal-clear fashion. Delicious now, it will only improve in a cool cellar for at least another ten years, but probably more like 12-15. I plan on finding out. The two reviews don’t really do this wine justice: “Sliced cooked apple and honey with some nougat and praline. Cloves and hints of parsley, too. Medium-to full-bodied, layered and complex with beautiful intensity and depth. Drink or hold.” - 95 James Suckling & “The 2018 Estate Chardonnay bursts with tangerine and lemon peel aromas with notes of beeswax and jasmine. The medium-bodied palate is satiny in texture with generous, juicy fruits and a long, uplifted finish.” - 93 Wine Advocate

2021 Zarate, Albariño, Val Do Salnes, Rias Baixas, Spain $21.89
Founded in 1707, seventh generation winemaker Eulogio Pomares has taken Zarate (along with Do Ferreiro) Albariño to new heights.  The Zarate estate was founded by the lower reaches of the Umia River. The undulating slopes of Xabre with its weathered granite soil, and cool climate make Val do Salnés the region's greatest terroir and home to its longest-lived wines.  Zarate's 2019 Albariño offers a kaleidoscope of aromas and flavors with aromas of peach, nectarine and jasmine and flavors of Meyer lemon, nectarine, and honeysuckle with a lashing of minerals, framed by refreshing acidity.  Enjoy this dry, medium-full-bodied white with all manner of seafood now and over the next few years.

2014 Hermanos Pecina - Señorio de Peciña, Rioja Reserva, Spain $27.99
Of Rioja's three truly great traditional wineries, Hermanos Peciña was only founded in 1992 by long-time La Rioja Alta's vineyard manager Pedro Peciña. The winery embraces long aging in neutral casks, regular rackings to build texture, and extended bottle aging before release. From the beginning, Pedro's winemaking has been utterly classic, and he uses his American oak barrels subtly. With an average age of 5-6 years, the wood is largely neutral, providing textural richness, but only background flavor notes.  2014 was a cool vintage, allowing for long hang time, which really develops the fruit flavor profile and excellent natural acidity for vibrancy and freshness. At eight years old, this wine is already showing brilliantly, but still has plenty of positive development ahead of it. The nose is explosive and the palate complex with balsamic and fine pipe tobacco spice notes accenting the bright fruit, velvety tannins and creamy texture. Warning: your glass will empty quickly.

2010 Hermanos Pecina - Señorio de Peciña, Rioja Gran Reserva, Finca Iscorta, Spain $45.89 bottle / $251.94($41.99) six-pack
Along with 2001, 2010 is the greatest vintage in Rioja since the legendary 1964 vintage.  In outstanding vintages, Pedro bottles a single vineyard wine from his top old vine vineyard, Finca Iscorta, as a Gran Reserva.  With only a subtle backdrop of oak, the nose is classic old-school Rioja.  The palate is complex and seamless with that rare combination of richness and finesse, not to mention beautiful fruit and a strong mineral core with excellent balance.  Only in Rioja will one find wine of such complexity, long cellar potential, depth and elegance for anywhere near this price.  Decant and enjoy now, or better yet, watch this magnificent wine improve and evolve through 2040.  Very Limited. "(raised in neutral American oak barrels for four years) Vivid ruby-red. A highly perfumed, expansive bouquet displays an array of ripe red fruits, exotic spices and candied flowers, along with subtle coconut and pipe tobacco accents. Juicy, seamless and appealingly sweet, offering intense, smoke-tinged raspberry preserve, cherry-vanilla and spicecake flavors and mocha. Licorice nuances build as the wine opens up. Finishes supple, sweet and very long, with slow-building tannins that fold smoothly into the clinging fruit.  Drink through 2030" -94 Vinous & “This feels very harmonious, combining some primary notes with more-developed tertiary aromas. The palate also reveals a rare mix of power and elegance that only the very best vintages are capable of. It has polished tannins, good volume, freshness and length. Drink or hold, there should be no rush.” - 94+ Wine Advocate - Very limited

2021 Feudo Montoni, Nerello Mascalese Rosé di Adele, Sicily $19.89
Feudo Montoni has been producing top-quality wines on its historic grounds in central Sicily since 1469, and is currently overseen by Fabio Sireci, the third generation of a family dedicated to producing the most refined expressions of this long-cultivated terroir. Their Rosé, made of Nerello Mascalese, is so much more interesting than examples made throughout most of Italy. The highly aromatic nose offers aromas of roses, pepper and pomegranate while the medium-bodied palate is incredibly fresh and lively featuring strawberry fruit, pink grapefruit and volcanic minerality. This is, by far, my favorite Italian Rosé I’ve had in many years. Delicious!

2019 Feudo Montoni, Catarratto dell Masso, Sicilia IGT, Sicily $19.89
This is a super-cool Sicilian white wine made from 55 year-old bush-trained Catarratto vines.  The Catarratto dell Masso sees a little skin contact during fermentation which adds both to the aromatic complexity and textural feel. Enjoy over the next two years with anything coming out of the sea, with grilled chicken and pork, or just as an intriguing summer quaffer. "Medium deep straw yellow with golden tinges. Ripe aromas and flavors of apricot, balsamic oils, bergamot and guava. Round and tactile but also very fresh in the mouth with hints of orange oil complicating flavors of grapefruit and mountain herbs in the mouth. Finishes long, multilayered and dense. An outstanding Catarratto.” - 92 Vinous

2018 Benanti, Nerello Cappuccio, Terre Siciliane Rosso, Mount Etna, Sicily $29.89
Benanti is one of the great wine estates on Mount Etna, issuing head-spinning red and white wines. It is very rare to see a wine made from 100% Nerello Cappuccio, but the Benanti family believed that it was more than just a supporting character for quite some time and is now being rewarded for their faith. The complex nose is deep with scents of smoke, a range of spices, strawberries and volcanic earth. The medium-bodied palate offers depth and finesse with plenty of pure, perfectly ripe red raspberry and strawberry fruit framed by good acidity and plenty of volcanic minerality on the long finish. Enjoy now and over the next seven years. “The 2018 Nerello Cappuccio releases an intense wave of spicy tart cherries and crushed cranberries with notes of white pepper and hints of animal musk. This is silky-smooth and pliant, showing herbal-tinged woodland berries and black stone mineral notes. The 2018 finishes a bit short yet has a pleasant inner sweetness that lingers. The textbook character of Nerello Cappuccio shines through here.” - 89 Vinous
