More about the wines!

2019 Cortenova Pinot Grigio delle Venezie....$11.99
Brilliant straw color with emerald reflections.
Fresh and floral bouquet with a hint of pears, apricots and bananas. Fresh and inviting with bright fruit and an easy drinking style with a pleasing hint of almonds in the aftertaste.
100% Pinot Grigio
Pairings: Pairs well with seafood dishes, risottos with scampi, spaghetti with clams, sole in white wine Perfect also as an aperitif.

2018 Tenuta di Bibbiano Chianti Classico...$19.99
The 2018 Chianti Classico is soft, fruity and floral, all of which makes it an excellent choice for drinking now and over the next handful of years. Freshly cut flowers, bright red berry fruit and gently spiced notes all run through this perfumed, gracious Chianti Classico from Bibbiano.
Rated 91/100 Antonio Galloni Vinous Media

2016 Tenuta di Bibbiano Chianti Classico...$25.99
A beam of intense cherry shines through this densely structured red, keeping it defined and energetic. Iron, earth and tobacco flavors add depth as this stays long, with mouthcoating tannins on the finish. Best from 2023 through 2045. 2,500 cases made, 500 cases imported.
Rated 95/100 The Wine Spectator

2016 Ridolfi Rocchetto Chianti DOCG...$15.99
Sangiovese 75%, Merlot 15%, Colorino 10%
This wine seriously over delivers for the month and is the perfect embodiment of the great 2016 vintage.
Fruity and simple with dried cherry and lemon character. Good core of fruit in the center. Bright finish. 
Rated 90/100 James Suckling

2018 Piancornello Rogheto Toscano...$17.99
100% Sangiovese
The color is deep ruby red. On the nose there is classic red vibrant fruit and raspberries. Very floral. The palate is dry, sapid, with supple tannins and well balanced with a great acidity.

2015 Villa Antinori Chianti Classico Riserva....$27.99
Compare to $36.99 at Total Wine and More in STL
Black currant, cedar, olive, iron and tobacco aromas and flavors suggest Cabernet in the blend, in a positive sense. This red is fluid, elegant and firmly structured, with fine balance and a long, gripping finish. The taut profile shows the potential for aging. Best from 2022 through 2038. 6,000 cases imported.
Rated 93/100 The Wine Spectator
The 2016 Chianti Classico Riserva Villa Antinori (made with Sangiovese and a tiny bit of Merlot to soften out the edges) is a linear and broad red wine that would pair with simple meat or pasta dishes. You get tons of fruit here with cherry, blackberry and a touch of soft baking spice woven in on the close. This pretty vintage is focused and sharp in character
Rated 92/100 The Wine Advocate
