Ercole Monferrato Bianco 2018
Grapes: 80% Cortese, 15% Chardonnay & 5% Sauvignon Blanc
At their best, wines made from the native grape variety, Cortese boast a serious yet pleasing weight, pronounced minerality, and beautiful acidity. In fact, the Cortese-based wines of nearby Gavi are among the most treasured whites of Northern Italy. We have discovered that adding a touch of Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc further sharpens and thereby elevates this wine.

Tenuta La Pergola Monferrato Rosso 2017
It's been a long day, and you want nothing more than a glass or two of tasty red to wash down a quick and simple dinner-but naturally, you hesitate to open a whole bottle. Tenuta La Pergola's Monferrato Rosso could be your savior when you are faced with this unfortunate dilemma. At a price that encourages weeknight consumption, this humble blend of Barbera, Dolcetto, Bonarda, and other grapes indigenous to Italy's Piedmont offers juicy refreshment and versatility when you most need it. Saturated with berry fruit, floral aromatics, and earthy nuances, it will pair effortlessly with your laziest efforts in the kitchen and shines alongside take-out pizza. If you don't finish the bottle, no worries-it can be kept for another two days or so without a problem (fridge recommended, then let it warm up to the desired temperature). And remember, there is nothing wrong with polishing off this Italian quaffer in one night!

Domaine du Clos des Rocs, Mâcon-Loché En Prés Forêt 2017
This offer represents an increasingly rare opportunity in the contemporary Burgundy landscape. It's a gorgeously detailed wine from an experienced and truly gifted producer who chases his dream of wine immortality by doing everything himself, both organically and by hand. Best of all, the finished product doesn't break the bank!
In the glass displaying a rich golden straw core with green reflections on the rim. This wine enjoys a beautifully classic nose with aromas of preserved yellow apples, bosc pear, hazelnuts, acacia honey, lime blossom and lemon curd over a subtle core of oyster shells and crushed limestone. The medium-bodied palate is nearly full-bodied and slightly viscous in texture with incredible concentration and flavors almost identical to the nose. With wine as fully realized and complete as this-and with no exposed seams or rough edges
