La Monacesca

IGT Marche 'Camerte' 2011, Marche, Italy

Wine maker - Aldo Cifola

Grape Variety - Sangiovese grosso 70%, merlot 30%

Alochol - 14.50%

Saladini Pilastri

Rosso Piceno Superiore ‘Vigna Montetinello’ DOC 2015, Marche, Italy

Tradition is the inspiring muse that has led Count Saladini to isolate and process separately the grapes from the Montetinello vineyard. The great concentration and consistency of this wine are due to the dominating percentage of Montepulciano, compared to Sangiovese, and to the favorable position of the 30-year-old vineyard only a few kilometers from the Adriatic coast. 18 months aged in French tonneaux.

Alochol - 14%

Offida Pecorino DOCG 2016, March, Italy

The Pecorino Offida is a deliciously crisp white and we are thankful that it was brought back from the brink of extinction after a few vines were discovered living in a wild state in the Marche. Its name originates from the fact that it was once a favorite snack of sheep (pecora) that were driven through vineyards on their way to lower pastures. “Bright, deep gold-tinged yellow. Captivating aromas of jasmine, white peach and honeyed pear. Big, fresh and suave, with a sage nuance perking up the rich winter melon, pear and citrus flavors. Finishes minty and long.” Stephen Tanzer, International Wine Cellar.


Wine maker - Alberto Antonini

Grape Variety - Pecorino 100%

Alochol - 13.5%

Food Match -Poultry, pork, fish and pasta with carbonara sauce.
