These three wines are among the most fascinating blends we’ve tasted: try them for yourself from 5:30pm and save 20%!Donna Adriana 2007 Castel de Paolis
was $26, now $20.50
In Lazio, they call the Malvasia “puntinata” meaning “speckled” because of its distinctive reddish spots. Castel de Paolis’ Fabrizio Santarelli makes this wine from local clones of the grape with the addition of some Viognier and Sauvignon.
Canavese Rosato Rubiconda 2008 Orsolani
was $15, now $12
Using Nebbiolo, Barbera and Uva Rara, Gianluigi Orsolani has created a small production of Canavese Rosato named “Rubiconda”. This fresh, fragrant and exquisitely dry rosato is a blend with enough structure to stand up to American favorites like ribs, burgers and grilled chicken.
Rosso del Frusinate Très 2007 Casale della Ioria
was $22, now $17.60
Paolo Perinelli’s Rosso del Frusinate is a blend of Cesanese (an indigenous, aromatic grape), Merlot, and Cabernet. Where the Cesanese gives the wine its characteristic peppery notes and bright acidity, the Merlot and Cabernet impart rich fruit flavors, tannin, and warm mouthfeel.
