Winemaker Marco Tintero is a master at bringing us great value. His Moscato d’Asti and Frizzante Rosato are summer staples, and this Langhe will fit perfectly into your evening barbecue plans. Big and bold, exploding with ripe blackberries, a touch of pepper, a hint of cacao—the Tintero Langhe Nebbiolo is a whole lotta wine with a weeknight-friendly price tag.
On a recent Sunday evening, this Freisa paired impeccably with a plate of mushroom toasts—the earthy and woodsy character of the wine was a perfect complement to the dish’s deep flavors. Traditionally, Freisa is used to produce sparkling or sweet wines, but the Canone Inverso takes Freisa in another direction, giving us a wine with bright minerality balanced with a strong tannic structure. Whether it’s seared mushrooms or grilled steak, Wednesday night or Saturday afternoon, date night or dinner party, this feisty red will slide seamlessly into your summer lineup.
The name of the grape tells you all you need to know about this wine: Dolcetto, the “little sweet one.” This lovely little grape turns into lovely little wines, and Il Palazzotto’s Sörì Cristina may just be the sweetest Dolcetto we offer. Winemaker Paolo Olivero, a Dolcetto specialist, takes great care in his vines and in his cellar to consistently produce soft, supple wines with freshness and finesse. Open a bottle and be seduced by aromas of black cherry and rose petal that will keep you coming back for more.
