Accattoli Verdicchio di Matelica DOC 2015
Country: ITALY / Region: MARCHE / Appellation: VERDICCHIO DI MATELICA DOC / Varietal(s): VERDICCHIO --- Verdicchio is a grape that can be viewed as a symbol for the Marche, situated on the eastern coast of central Italy.  It is believed to be native to the area, and was mentioned in documents as early as the 14th century. Of the two verdicchio-producing appellations in the Marche, Jesi and Matelica, we prefer the latter, which produces firmer, more aromatic wines. The Accattoli winery, nestled in the hills bordering Umbria, makes this fabulous wine: straw green in the glass, featuring bright, lemony fruit with a creamy mouthfeel, and finishing with a refreshing crisp acidity that make this perfect for anything from pork to chicken, shellfish to richer fish dishes.
 
Bodega Los Olmos Ribera del Duero DO Roble "Sonante" 2013
Country: SPAIN / Region: CASTILLA Y LEON / Appellation: RIBERA DEL DUERO DO / Varietal(s): TEMPRANILLO --- This co-operative winery is located in the heart of the Ribera del Duero region. However, as with all co-operatives (and all wineries for that matter), it's the location of the vineyards that most influences the final product. The region is known for its varied climates predicated on a variety of altitudes. Growers contribute grapes from many of these locations, which creates complexity in the finished wine. The wine is focused on black fruit flavors but has excellent structure for a wine of this price point. A streak of acidity keeps this fresh and focused. Just a touch of tannin delivers the backbone to help transition to cooler weather foods, earthy black bean tacos, roast chicken with sweet potatoes au gratin, tamari-glazed mushrooms with celeriac rice pilaf.
