Marsuret Prosecco Brut Valdobiadene Superiore NV (Veneto) $17.99

Ideal as an aperitif and perfect with all kinds of fish dishes.Chateau Lafayette Reneau Chardonnay BF '12 (Finger lakes) $14.99

Mauro Veglio Barolo '10 (Piedmont) $39.99
"The entry-level 2010 Barolo offers an incredible value given the superb integration of fruit and the overall harmony of this very elegant vintage. Nebbiolo nuances of tar, licorice and balsam herb emerge at the fringe of dark fruit and pressed violets. This Barolo also stands out thanks to the clarity and overall intensity of the bouquet. Contrasting themes of fresh acidity and tannic dryness give this Barolo a heightened sense of power and muscle on the close." - WA 92 points.Clos du Mont-Olivet Ch-Neuf-Pape "Petit Mont" 11 (Rhone) $32.99
