Piemonte, considered the top wine
region of Italy, being the land of
Barolo and Barbaresco, even though
these mega-popular wines only account

- 2018 Falesco Vitiano Rosso Italy $12
This wine represents one of the best
values in Italian wine, and I really
cannot imagine how the Cotarella
family manages to get so much quality
at this super competitive price. A
blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon
and Sangiovese. This informal but
elegant mid-weight red offers cherry
fruit, spice and balanced touches of
tobacco and spice. A delicious wine to
pair with any mid-week pasta dinner.

blackberry precede hints of fresh
herbs and licorice root. A rich,
full-fruited entry with notes of
cocoa, dark coffee, and subtle savory
nuances. Mature tannins integrate
nicely with ripe fruit to provide a
long, focused finish. Varietals:
Merlot (34%), Cabernet Franc (27%),
Cabernet Sauvignon (22%), Malbec
(15%), Petit Verdot (2%) AVA: Columbia

Wine & Bistro June 2022 White
Cheap & Cheerful $59.40
- 2019 Rey Santo Verdejo Spain $10
A nice smooth subtle wine. Medium
body. It coats the tongue and has a
lingering finish but not a heavy wine.
High acidity however it is nicely
balanced and not overpowering, just
lends a crispness to the wines. The
citrus, tropical fruit and green tones
come through but are not in your face.
They blend well together. This is an
excellent verdejo. Rey Santo made from
100% Verdejo from 15-year-old vines by
the Javier Sanz Group who are one of
the stalwarts of the Rueda region
- 2020 Saget La Petite Perriere
Sauvignon Blanc France $10
A crystalline robe with gold-pale
reflections. On the nose, a wide range
of fragrances, from vegetal with ivy
and acacia to fruity with peach and
lychee. A fresh start, opening for
persistent mineral and fruity notes
with a lingering finish on the palate.

fine spicy notes with fruity hints and
a lively, pleasant finish. Delicate
peppery notes accompany a lovely body
with a dry aftertaste. Pairs
well with Viennese Schnitzel, but also
with beef, seafood, vegetables, Asian
dishes, and barbecue.
- 2019 Maris Vermentino France $10
Very mineral like all Vermentinos,
with beautiful notes of white peach
and a fleshy mid palate. Irresistible
and a great aperitif wine. Mouth
filling and elegant. This wine will go
well with mixed salads, poultry, white
meats and perfect with marinated
anchovies on toasted focaccia.
- Blanc Pescador France
A second natural fermentation gives
this dry and fruity wine a special
freshness, elegance, and personality.
