IL PALAGIO VERNACCIA: From a historic estate in Tuscany comes this juicy, refreshing, white made from the local grape, Vernaccia. Soft lemon and green apple notes rides on a soft, clean palate.

CANTINE POVERO DOLCETTO: A northern Italian varietal from the Piedmont region. A lighter bodied red wine that is fruity with notes of fresh red fruits and rose petals. Perfumed taste, rich with abundant flavors. Delicate on the finish.

CANTINE POVERO BARBERA D'ASTI: Intense ruby red with garnet highlights. Its bouquet is rich and complex. Evident in the hints of red berries and currants. A background of vanilla and liquorice. Taste is dry and full-bodied.

CAMILLE CAYRAN COTES DU RHONE: Southern Rhone blend of Grenache with Syrah, Carignan and Cinsault.

CLOS LA COUTALE CAHORS: Big, rich and darkly colored. The leading grape is Malbec. Tannat and Merlot can also be used in these blends. There is a good sense of elegance to the well-defined, concentrated flavors of dark cherry, blackberry and plum followed by notes of sage, dark chocolate and tobacco leaf on the long, powerful finish.
