Sunday we are pouring two more from the big boot.
2016 Francesco Intorcia, Grillo $12
A Sicilian white with distinct notes of citrus fruits and yellow fruits, also ripe, and pleasant hints of herbs and sweet spices. Intense, rich and embracing, it is smooth and warm on the palate.
2013 Leonello, Valpolicella Ripasso $15
Corvina, Rondella, Molinara
This is a strong, full-bodied wine with an intense bouquet of red fruit conserved in spirits with agreeable hints of spices and a well-balanced taste. This is undoubtedly a Ripasso wine with an impressive, distinct, tannic, clean and elegant character. Was $22 now $15
