Here is what's included in the "#2 pack":
Guadagno Falanghina - the Guadagno brothers are financiers turned winemakers who have a love for their region, the Avellino. This is the best wine region you’ve never heard of with tons of elevation and volcanic soil. Falanghina grown here at high elevation yields a wine with wonderful structure, bright fruit and lovely acidity.
Terrasol Tracce Tracce - This Nero d’Avola is made by a father and son team who make wine out of a glorified garage. This is one of my favorite expressions of the grape as it sees no oak and is all about drinkability. It is a great everyday wine for those looking for something with a bit of structure.
Glassier Lagrein- Stefan Vaja is 9th generation winemaker just south of Bolzano who still produces wine and lives in the original home his family built centuries ago. He is a wealth of knowledge and follows the biodynamic calendar to guide his principles. Lagrein is his prized grape. If you want something earthy and with woodsy undertones with the structure of a Pinot Noir this wine is for you!
Lorenzo Negro La Nanda Barbera - is a true Piedmontese artisan who lives with his mom and is afraid to leave his farm unless it’s to go hiking with his dogs. His Barbera, named for his mom (Fernandina, la nanda for short) is grown on sandy soils with great plump fruit and plenty of acidity. The 2013 still feels like it was bottled yesterday!
La Sabbiona Rosso della torre- Sangiovese from Romagna is not to be overlooked. La Sabbiona is located very close to Tuscany and it’s here on the border with Emilia Romagna is where the grape was grown. The wines from Emilia Romagna are more fruit forward, perhaps less complex but really enjoyable.
Negro Lorenzo Roero Arneis- this is easily one of my favorite white wines year in and year old. It comes from Lorenzo Negro who is a 3rd generation in the little known roero denomination of Piedmont. The Roero lies just across the Tanaro River from Barolo and Barbaresco but wines from here have slipped under the radar.
The Arneis grape is the local pride and joy which flourishes on the very sandy soils of the Roero. The entire denomination was under the ocean millions of years ago. This wine has incredible minerality and salinity as well as plenty of structure. A tremendous food wine...
