Last-Minute Summer Wines

20160829_115835Marcato Pinot Grigio 
Varietal: 100% Pinot Grigio
Region: Veneto, Italy
Price: $7.99
This lovely little import is bursting with crisp citrus notes. This Pinot Grigio is from the Veneto region of Italy and delivers flavors of ripe fruits and almonds. It is a wonderfully, surprisingly versatile wine for just $7.99.

Le Rose di Regaleali
Varietal: 100% Nerello Mascalese
Region: Sicily
Price: $9.99
From Sicily, where summer is hot and the Rose is chilled! Delicate aromas of cherry, raspberry, and blackberry. Rich and smooth with a rose petal-soft finish. Nerello Mascales is only grown in Sicily and makes for a lovely bottle of Rose.
