October's Featured Wines

This month we are traveling to the land of castles, romantic hills covered in mist and quite possibly Italy’s finest red wines!

G.D. Vajra “Ravera” Barolo 2013, $76.99 (only $65.44 with GOGO discount)
Best in Show

“The 2013 Barolo Ravera is tightly wound and austere, with tons of its energy in reserve. Lavender, violet, plum, spice and menthol are beautifully delineated throughout. Attractive scents of rose petal, mint, sweet red berries and chalk infuse the taut, salivating finish. My instincts say this is going to be a very special wine one day.” 95+ points, Vinous, Antonio Galloni

Luigi Baudana “Dragon” Langhe Bianco 2015, $22.99 (only $12.74 with GOGO discount)

Mostly Chardonnay with a decent sized helping of Sauvignon Blanc and finished with Riesling and the native grape Nascetta. This floral and delicately textured white is remarkably complex for the price, showing hints of pit fruit and grass headlined by a strong, elegant minerality.A wine you will certainly be returning for soon.

G.D Vajra Langhe Rosso 2014, $14.99 (only $12.74 with GOGO discount)
Best Bargain

Nebbiolo, Barbera, and Dolcetto come together to create one of the most pleasing expressions of Piedmont’s big 3 varietals. Look for violets, roses, and black and red fruits, with a touch of tarragon on the nose. Hints of almond, black pepper and Asian spices come together for a nice refreshing finish.

Malabaila “Cardunaj”Vino Rosso NV, $19.99 (only $16.99 with GOGO discount)
Most Interesting

This is an enormously satisfying dry version of Brachetto, a grape that is typically made into sweet fizzy red wines in the village of Acqui. It retains all the joy and charm of its fizzy version without the bubbles, with loads of soft raspberry and strawberry fruit on a very light and smooth palate.
