GUARANTEED BEST PROVENANCE: IMPORTED FROM ITALY BY AIR AND STOCKED IN CALIFORNIA PRE-ORDER NOW This wine is on its way from Italy and should ship to you by August 21st. Sometimes a wine is so popular I simply can't get access to it here in the US. When that happens, I do what any tenacious wine-geek would do — I get it direct from Italy. And so it goes with Fabio Alessandria's fabulous Verduno Pelaverga 2016. Everybody who has tasted Fabio's wine craves this vino rosso. It's made from the quirky but very fun Pelaverga grape grown on Fabio's Verduno estate just north of La Morra in Piedmont. Light-bodied with a captivating melange of red cherries, crabapple, hints of red roses, a touch of clove and allspice – This is delicious stuff, very fresh and the best provenance you'll find (unless you go visit Fabio at his cantina). You could pair up Fabio's Pelaverga with lighter autumn food fare, like grilled pork chops or roast chicken, but I'd just grab a bunch of friends and start pouring while passing 'round a plate full of sliced prosciutto and hunks of pecorino cheese. Bottle Size: 750ml Alcohol: 13%

Patchouli, cloves, cardamom, surprise aromatics from yet another bit player in the pantheon of grape varieties. The phantasmagoria. The endless exploration. Too cool.

Great vintage for this. All the white pepper/mineral that I usually get from this grape, but a nice balance of bramble fruit to go with it.

Delicious! Pretty velvety but grippy tannins. Earthy, black pepper, some baking spice, a bit of oak and composting leaves, mushroom, stewed prunes, a little mineral too. From Flatiron Wines.
