    Ladoucette Sancerre Comte Lafond

    Loire, France ($35.19)

    100% Sauvignon Blanc

    This wine is remarkable and aromatic on the nose. It displays floral notes of white flowers such as hawthorn, acacia, eglantine and elderflower. Lively on the palette with very pleasant acidity, which is prolonged by light fruity notes. Full and refreshing, it is dominated by flinty stones and chalk, typical of fine Sancerre wines. Ladoucette Sancerre is a perfect representation of what a wine from this region should ultimately taste like.

    Enjoy this wine with shellfish, seafood & goat cheese.

    Inama Carmenère Più Colli Berici

    Colli Berici, Italy ($17.99)

    70% Carmenère, 30% Merlot

    Inama Carmenère and Merlot show a vivid ruby core with a narrow purple rim. Pronounced nose with black cherry, soy, cocoa and violets. Elegant front-palate with fresh acidity, firm, integrated tannins and length. This Italian blend is my pick as it shows how wines from unknown regions can shine! The wine provides the richness most red wine drinkers are looking for, while keeping the classic Italian acidity I love.

    Enjoy with grilled meats & charcuterie.
