Franco Serra: Spectacular and Storied  

Who said that established wineries had to be expensive? Franco Serra has been making wine for over 100 years and still is one of the best buys in Piedmont. Founded in 1911 by Antonio Sperone, the wineries goal since their founding was to offer affordable wine. These goals reached their apex with the purchase of 75 acres in Piedmont, where they planted Pinot Noir, Nebbiolo and Dolcetto.

Lingua Franca Estate Chardonnay, Eola-Amity Hills 2019 750ML ($59.95) $49 special, 12 bottles in stock now
Decanter 93 points
“This superb Chardonnay is produced from the Estate vineyard in the Eola-Amity hills across the street from Seven Springs. 2019 produced a wine with vibrant acidity and a well-developed fruit with a lemon peel and passionfruit nose that is also informed by the full malo and long, reductive aging in cask (20% new). The wine has an elegant balance between the freshness of the vintage and a ripe, dense fruit character that will allow it to age for years to come.

“The 2019 Pinot Noir Les Dijonnais has a medium ruby-purple color aAnd perfumed red cherries, cranberry sauce, lavender and tangerine with spicy accents.

Felsina Flying over: Arriving in February 
 
The ancestral home of Sangiovese, Chianti produces the widest array of styles in part due to stratified geological, topographical and administrative processes. As one of the first established wine regions in Italy after the country’s unification in the 30’s, Chianti is synonymous with Italy’s quality revolution in recent decades.

Felsina has been a major leader in this quality revolution, with their single vineyard riservas being among the most collectible in the appellation, as well as age worthy.

Produttori on Deck: 2017 Re-Arrived
 
Produttori del Barbaresco is revered for producing classically-styled Barbaresco of uncompromising quality and transparency. It’s a miracle that these wines are still affordable and available, especially when compared to the skyrocketing prices of Barolo. You’d be hard-pressed to find such consistent quality and complexity out of such an incredible expression of Nebbiolo anywhere else.
