Colline Novaresi D.O.C. Nebbiolo  $21.95     

VINTAGES#: 549659   750 mL bottle Piedmont Italy 
​Luxurious, with a considerable structure and heavy tannins. Its flavour, together with an agreeable acidity and a good alcohol content, gives a long and delicious aftertaste.
It reminds of cherries scent, sour black cherry and plum with hints of the intense cinnamon aroma, vanilla, tobacco, violet and pepper. 

Almadi Corvina  $15.95

VINTAGES#: 492595   750 mL bottle Veneto, Italy  
​Almadi is named for Biagio Dovere's three children: Allegra, Manuel and Diego. The 2014 100% Corvina is a dense, dark and smooth wine with impressive balance and structure. There's a lot of mixed berry fruit throughout and a juicy - almost sweet - core. A touch of mocha adds complexity to the spice and plum tones.
A great price, this wine will go well with hard cheeses, meaty stews or barbecued meats. (Vintages Panel, Oct. 2016)
