Today we present three of our very best Northern whites from three unique producers. Come in and taste all three from 5:30pm on this Spring afternoon and save 10% (15% off a closed case)!

Malvasia 2007 Ronco dei Tassi
was $24, now $21.60

Though perhaps more famous as a sweet wine, the Malvasia variety is traditionally vinified as a dry white in Friuli, where famed Friulian winemaker Fabio Coser’s traditional approach and careful fruit selection result in a superior expression of the grape.

Pinot Bianco 2007 Castel Sallegg
was $19, now $17.10

Castel Sallegg’s crisp, balanced, mineral-driven Pinot Bianco benefits from the sandy, pebbly lime subsoil on the slopes that surround Lake Caldaro, an ideal growing site for a great food-friendly wine.

Chiavennasca 2007 Conti Sertoli Salis
was $21, now $18.90
Chiavennasca is the local name for a clone of Nebbiolo grown almost exclusively in Lombardy, where wines vinified “in bianco” have been made for centuries. Conti Sertoli Salis continue this tradition with a wine which retains all the nobility of its famous variety while remaining fresh and clean on the palate.
