Cerbaiona - Elusive Montalcino Jewel
Cerbaiona - Elusive Montalcino JewelOne of the wonderful aspects of working with wine are the relationships that you develop with producers like Diego Molinari and his winery Cerbaiona, in Montalcino, Tuscany. For me wine isn’t just a commodity for me to sell, it’s an experience and a sensibility that I want to share. I’ve been lucky enough to visit Diego and family on numerous occasions, and for me these wines exemplify what Brunello di Montalcino should be.Shop Collection

Andrea Scovero's Single Vineyard Barbera d'Asti "Ciapin"
Andrea Scovero's Single Vineyard Barbera d'Asti "Ciapin"One of the best ways to learn the language of a grape is to taste two different voices of the grape.
Those of you who purchased our little angel of a wine last week - Pomodolce's Cherubino, can now compare it to our little devil - Andrea Scovero's Ciapin Barbera d'Asti. Why little devil? The grapes are grown in a single vineyard plot known in Piemontese Dialect as "the oven mit". It is a natural amphitheater where the temperatures are slightly warmer than other surrounding vineyards.Andrea's wines are all farmed by hand and are organic/biodynamic
