ABITO "LA JUVENTUD" MALBEC 2019 (ARGENTINA)
100% Eco Friendly!
Fruit-forward, very typical Malbec, notable also for its freshness. On the nose it recalls aromas of red and black fruits and dried fruits. There are also notes of white flowers like jasmine and violets. On the palate it is unctuous and friendly, with good acidity, roundness and fullness.
PAIRING: Earthy, tangy, savory dishes like slow-cooked pulled pork, saucy barbecue, mushrooms, sausage with a bit of spiciness, and "mild" chili.
SOTTANO MALBEC 2019 (ARGENTINA)
89 points (JS)
Gleaming, intense red-violet colour. Complex aroma of ripe red plums and raspberries is enhanced with subtle chocolate and vanilla. On the palate it is well structured, with velvety and elegant tannins and a lingering finish.
PAIRING: Steak, grilled red meat in general, pasta with tomato-based sauce, mushroom risotto, mildly flavored semi-soft cheeses such as Gouda, Havarti, Bel Paese, Port Salut, Saint Paulin, or Brie.
MI TERRUNO "EXPRESION" MALBEC 2018 (ARGENTINA)
93 points (JS)
Full ruby red colour with violet hues. Black raspberry and violet aromas are perfectly combined with elegant tannins. Very good persistence.
PAIRING: Ideal to pair with red meats and hard cheeses. Excellent example of the emblematic red variety from Argentina.
LE RUGHE PROSECCO DOC BRUT (ITALY)
90 points (Falstaff)
Brilliant, light-straw yellow with persistent perlage. On the nose, medium intensity and delicate aromas of grapefruit. The palate has citrus, acacia, pear and apple, and the very pleasant combination of acidity, effervescence and sweetness lead to a lingering, complex finish.
PAIRING: Excellent sipping wine or as an aperitif. Pair with a wide range of savory appetizers.
VILACETINHO VINHO VERDE DOC (PORTUGAL)
Pale-yellow citrine colour. Aromas of white orchard fruits and a light touch of tropical fruitiness on the nose. Fresh, young and vibrant, with a slight fizziness on the palate, lovely for sipping on any occasion.
PAIRING: A natural partner for any fish or seafood dish as well as Portuguese specialties such as caldo verde. Also good with other white meats, salads, potato dishes, and vegetables. Try with spicy Asian dishes.
BIXIO PINOT GRIGIO DELLE VENEZIE DOC 2018 (ITALY)
Straw yellow color with greenish hues. Aromas of ripe pear and wildflowers with a delicate note
of bread crust. In the mouth, it is fine, fresh, and tasty, well balanced and with good aromatic persistence.
PAIRING: Ideal as an aperitif and goes well with carpaccio as an appetizer. Also serve with white meat such as fish, sushi and seafood, chicken cacciatore, pasta with cream sauce, asparagus, salads, and feta cheese.
