2013 NALS MARGREID - PUNGGL Pinot Grigio

$18.99 / $15.99 by the case

 

James Suckling 93

 

This shows lots of dried exotic fruit with some ginger too! Full body, with wonderfully ripe fruit and lively acidity. Lots of flavor and freshness. One of the best pinot grigios out there.

 

The body and juicy structure coming from deep clay soils, and the long finish fashioned by the aged vines, make this wine a great companion to intensely flavored starters, fish and white meats.

 

At a mere 82-feet high the vineyard called Punggl, meaning hill in South Tyrolean dialect, is characterized by its warm temperatures. It was formed from clay-based sands in the south of Margreid and is home to 80-year-old Pinot Grigio vines.

 

Great Sale Price on Chianti Riserva

 

“La Maialina is my most exciting discovery in Tuscany so far this year. Consulting oenologist Attilio Pagli buys wines in bulk from one of Tuscany’s most elite properties, then raises and bottles them in a separate facility. I was blown away by what I tasted. When you factor in the price, these are some of the most stunning values to come out of Tuscany, or anywhere for that matter. Wine Advocate

 

2008 La Maialina Chianti Classico Riserva   reg $19.99

 

SPECIAL OFFER - $14.99 by the case (or six pack)

 

 

The 2008 Chianti Classico Riserva shows the mid-weight, understated personality of the year in a delicate, ethereal expression of plums, black cherries, licorice and tobacco. The aromas and flavors are woven together beautifully in this gracious, totally delicious wine. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2016.  

This is another superb set of wines from La Maialina. La Maialina sources unfinished wine from one of Tuscany’s most famous estates that, understandably, wishes to remain anonymous. These are some of the very finest values in Tuscany.
