Sportoletti Grechetto Assisi DOC 2013
Country: ITALY / Region: UMBRIA / Appellation: ASSISI DOC / Varietal(s): GRECHETTO --- Although Umbria is best known for its full-bodied reds, the region also produces great whites, particularly from the native varietal featured here: grechetto. Mineral-rich soils, cool nights and warm sunny days combine to produce a wine with balance and freshness that’s also a great value. Deep gold in color, with delicate yet intense aromas of honey, white flowers, and pear, this wine opens up on the palate into ripe fruit flavors with notes of biscuit and a hint of cut green grass on the finish. Structured and fresh, this wine is a great match for pizza, leafy green vegetables, baked seafood with herbs, lasagna with vegetable sauce, or grilled chicken.

Viñedos y Bodegas Pablo "Menguante" Cariñena DO 2014 - CERTIFIED ORGANIC, BIODYNAMICALLY GROWN
Country: SPAIN / Region: EBRO RIVER VALLEY / Appellation: CARINENA DO / Varietal(s): GARNACHA --- Bodega Viñedos y Bodegas Pablo is a family owned/operated winery located in Almonacid de la Sierra in the Cariñena region of Spain. The Pablo family has a long winemaking tradition in the region with indigenous grapes. In addition, they have been dedicated to biodynamic farming and viticulture for many years and use no herbicides or chemicals of any kind. They endeavor to convey the essence of the land and the unique character of the indigenous grapes in their wines. Menguante means ‘waning moon’ because in biodynamic viticulture, the casks are racked at night only when the moon is waning for fear the gravitational force from a fuller moon will attract sediment from the bottom of the cask. Deep ruby in color, this wine is firm and round with a soft finish. Cherry and floral aromas with a bit of white pepper and minerality on the nose give way to cherry and berry flavors with a hint of licorice. Try this with pulled pork tacos, or Cuban black beans and rice.
