Valli Unité "Bianchino" Vino Bianco NV - ORGANICALLY GROWN
Country: ITALY / Region: PIEDMONT / Appellation: VINO BIANCO / Varietal(s): CORTESE --- This crisp, refreshing white comes from a small cooperative founded by four families who decided to fight industrialization by combining their properties, with the shared goal of keeping natural methods first and foremost in their winemaking. Made from the cortese grape, this offers up lots of crunchy, chalky citrus notes, with lightning-bright acidity and a savory, nutty finish. Naturally made, it pairs effortlessly with cheese plates and assorted hors d'oeuvres.
C&D Deneufbourg Syrah Côtes Catalanes IGP 2015
Country: FRANCE / Region: LANGUEDOC-ROUSSILLON / Appellation: CÔTES CATALANES IGP / Varietal(s): SYRAH --- Corinne and Damien Deneufbourg produce their elegant, structured wines in the Côtes Catalanes in Roussillon. Hyphenated as Languedoc-Roussillon, Roussillon is in fact a distinct cultural area with a proud Catalan identity, and Côtes Catalanes is located about 20 miles north of the Spanish border in the Pyrénées-Orientales. This is a wine region to watch, producing lots of interesting and delicious bottles! On the fuller side of medium-bodied, this 100% syrah is dark and deep, loaded with black fruit and crushed woody herbs. Bright acidity, chewy tannins, and an overall earthiness make this a natural choice for roasts, stews, or sausages.
