$1/btl Shipping on 6-Packs, Free Shipping on Case
Earlier this year, Gary and a few of our buyers sat down to a very traditional Italian dinner with the importer of several of our Italian wines. As usual, he had some good Brunellos and Chiantis for us to taste, but the one wine that really caught our attention was the 2004 Querciarossa Fulgente Rosso from Tuscany.
It was an impressive blend of Italian varietals (Sangiovese, Canaiolo, Colorino, Montepulciano, Alicante, Ciliegiolo and Teroldeco), -- the flavors were so intense: ripe red fruit, chocolate and spice, that we would have pegged it for a California style wine. But try it, as we did, with hearty Italian food and you'll know that Italy is where these grapes really belong.
We shouldn't have been surprised that the wine was so good; after all, it hails from the same proprietors that own Poggio Il Castellare, producers of the Brunello that ranked #11 in Wine Spectator's Top 100 last year. But what definitely surprised us was the price we were able to work out - Only $14.99 on sale, for a wine that drinks like something twice the price! Needless to say, we stocked up on all we could, and suggest you do the same for some everyday wine that over-delivers each time we taste it.
Wine Spectator 90 Points -- Big and rich, with loads of blackberry, licorice and mineral character. Sangiovese, Montepulciano, Alicante, Teroldego, Ciliegiolo and Colorino. Best after 2008. 665 cases made. -JS
