Juicy blackberries and fresh herbs on nose. Light body, slightly tart, good minerality and easy drinking. Good pairing with our carbonara.

On the nose sour cherry, blueberry, and more. Fruit on front of the palate with soft tannins. I wish I had bought a case now...

Light, rustic Nebbiolo with tart red fruit and a little sap. Really good for $15.

Light but dense, fruity and mineral-y. Serious stuff.

Tart, bright, mineral, light/medium bodied. Dry but with strawberry (and melon?) vapors on a grassy lawn. Excellent value. From Shawn's.

Did someone say cheap Nebbiolo? I'm game. Hailing from Northern Lombardy, it's called #Chiavennasca here. Slightly different, but just as good. While Piedmont tends more to power and fruitiness, the wines from Valtellina are a bit more earthy, yet graceful. This one has aromas of strawberries and flowers. The palate is soft and tart. It's also got that funk. As crazy as it sounds, this bottle reminds of a really pretty farm. That's a good thing.
