Gold, Best of Show Sauvignon Blanc, Alameda Wine Competition

Dry, lively and fresh, this wine has an attractively restrained range of flavors that includes lemon, white pepper and herbs. It’s thirst-quenching and clean in texture, with a fruit-driven acidity that reverberates on the finish.



Piccini Sasso al Poggio 2012 $20.95 Product #134809 

One of our best sellers through Vintages, Piccini Sasso al Poggio has a Silver Medal from IWSC, and is a Super-Tuscan charmer with “racy acidity,” smooth fruit, and firm tannins.

Natalia Maclean gives this wine 88 points:

Lots of chocolate and mocha on the nose of this full-bodied Italian red wine from generous oak aging. Robust and generous (you gotta like that in a wine or a person) with attractive aromas and flavours of tart cherry and wild blackberry. A solid finish. Great for potluck gatherings. This wine cries out for food, especially anything with a tangy tomato sauce. Decant 2 hours — very grippy, firm tannins.


Now you know what you are drinking this weekend – cheers!
