Bosco Del Merlo

Bosco del Merlo Prosecco Brut Rose’ Millesimato DOC NV 750ml

Bright pink and demanding attention, this Prosecco DOC Brut Rose’ is a blend of Glera again, but this time, like a dark twin, boasts 15% Pinot Nero from a low density vineyard to increase intensity... of color and aroma. This wine is an explosion of blue and red fruits layered with violets and roses. Anyone who seldom drinks Rose bubbles will be impressed! As an added bonus, Bosco del Marlo is all about sustainability and taking care of the land and its inhabitants, so the company donates part of their profits to support the fight against breast cancer and those who suffer from this condition.

About Azienda Agricola La Torre

"La Torre" translates to "the tower," and this exciting Montalcino estate spreads across almost 90 acres in Sesti, near Sant’Angelo in Colle,... though fewer than 14 acres are under vine. Owner-winemaker Luigi Anania purchased this estate in 1976, and the winery saw its inaugural Brunello vintage in 1982, one of the truly fabled years of the last century. Anania and his team use non-interventionist practices in the vineyard and traditional winemaking in the cellar to craft La Torre’s terroir-driven, accessible wines. The most remarkable aspect of La Torre is the elevation of its vineyards. Perched at about 1,500 feet above sea level in the southwestern Brunello subzone, these naturally terraced, limestone-rich vineyards are high enough to enjoy gentle breezes coming off the Tyrrhenian Sea, which helps La Torre’s Sangiovese Grosso grapes ripen fully, while escaping heat and dryness. La Torre’s delicious, enjoyable, and traditional Brunello wines are true gems, especially at their relatively affordable price point.

About Gaja

You can’t overestimate the impact of Angelo Gaja on the global fine wine landscape. Though the Gaja estate was founded in 1859 by Angelo’s great-grandfather,... Angelo started shaking things up in 1961 when he assumed control of the family’s winery. Angelo started small: choosing to bottle only estate-grown wines, reducing crop sizes, and decreasing fermentation periods. By 1967, Angelo had gained the confidence to make larger changes, beginning with the bottling of cru Barbaresco Sorì San Lorenzo, while Sorì Tildìn followed in 1970 and Costa Russi in 1978. In the mid-1970s, Angelo began aging his wines in barriques, and he replaced some prime Nebbiolo vines in Barbaresco with Cabernet Sauvignon for his Darmagi and Chardonnay for his Gaia & Rey. But as radical as some of Angelo’s innovations seemed — and his adding some Barbera to his cru Barbaresco and Barolo appeared very radical —Angelo’s boldest moves helped to bring his wines, as well as Piemonte wines, to the notice of the international market. Angelo refused to play by any rules but his own; he refused to compromise on the quality of his wines; and he succeeded. Angelo began his transition to retirement in 2004, and winemaking duties now rest in the hands of his daughter, Gaia, who has been making bold moves of her own, all in the single-minded pursuit of crafting wines of outstanding excellence.

Dalla Valle Vineyards DVO Napa Valley Red 2019 750ml

About DVO

Great wines come from great relationships. The working friendship between Maya Dalla Valle, the second-generation winemaker at Napa’s Dalla Valle Vineyards, and... Axel Heinz, Ornellaia’s winemaker until 2023, spawned DVO, a line of red wines with Napa fruit and Italian winemaking sensibility. Maya, who assumed the role of winemaker at her parents’ Dalla Valle Vineyards estate in 2021, has deep roots at Ornellaia — she worked at the Bolgheri estate for the 2013 vintage and found a mentor in Axel. With guidance from Naoki Dalla Valle and Giovanni Geddes da Filicaja of Ornellaia, Maya and her DVO team uses the fruit from cooler vineyards to create a singular wine that synthesizes the Dalla Valle Vineyards and Ornellaia. The inaugural 2018 bottling of DVO’s Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc blend arrived with great critical and collector fanfare, marking a new wine to watch — and enjoy!

About Dalla Valle Vineyards

In 1982, Naoki and Gustav Dalla Valle came to Oakville, California, and purchased a small property looking out over the valley high in the Vaca Mountains. The couple intended to open a resort, but Gustav, whose family had long grown wine in northern Italy, recognized the potential of the iron-rich, rocky soils. Dalla Valle Vineyards released its first vintage just four years later, finding fame with the 1992 vintage of its Cabernet blend, Maya. After Gustav passed in 1995, Naoki took control of the estate, and with her team, she brought the organically grown 20-acre estate to even greater heights. In 2021, daughter Maya, who trained at both Cornell University and Bordeaux’s Sciences Agro University, became the estate’s winemaker. Dalla Valle Vineyards takes a hands-on, intensive approach to tending their 18 parcels of vines, a practice that Maya calls “precision farming.” The estate crafts three rare, exceptional wines every year, and when vintages are exceptional, also makes its highly sought-after MDV Cabernet Sauvignon.
