Caposaldo Pinot Grigio
"On the nose are vivid aromas of pineapple and tangy green apple. There is a lovely balancing act between juicy ripe pear notes and bright acidity with a clean, delicate finish."
Ruffino Orvieto Classico $10.99
"Fresh flowers and citrus on the nose followed by ripe green apple up front, sassy acidity and a characteristic touch of mineral. The finish is long and fragrant with almond notes."
Gran Passione Rosso $14.99
"Ripe blackberry and chocolate-covered cherries distinguish this delicious aroma. This rich red is juicy with notes of black fruit and a satisfyingly long, dense finish."
Donnafugata Sedàra $14.99
"Fresh cherry and strawberry aromas give way to cascading notes of sun-dried cranberries, then black olive then peppercorn. The finish is rich, deep, and rustic."
"This sparkler has orange blossom aromas and honey notes. Frisky flavors of apple and citrus bubble to the front and then make room for the light fresh finish."
Caposaldo Pinot Grigio $11.99
"White fruit, cut flowers and intriguing mineral aromas are on the nose followed by kiwi tartness balanced by mellow honeydew notes. The finish is dry crisp and crowd-pleasing."
Monrosso Chianti $13.99
"Lavender and cranberry aromas blend in this soft, rich ruby red wine. Gentle tannins, abundant fruit, and a well-balanced finish characterize this textbook Chianti."
Verrazzano Rosso $15.99
"This red has complex aromas of fresh fruits and violets followed by Tuscan herbs, black currant and pomegranate flavors that move to a smooth finish."
