- Stefano's authentic Italian red is part of a new generation of wines made in Tuscany - ripe, rustic, and ready to open.
- Instead of making a traditional Chianti, Stefano blended in some world-class grape varieties like Syrah and Merlot to give this wine more punch (a trick he also uses when making his hundred dollar Super Tuscans).
- You can say a lot of wine is good with pizza – but this Italian red is 100% destined for a thick, piping-hot slice loaded with gooey mozzarella and absurd amounts of sausage. Sip, chomp, sip, repeat.
- Stefano di Blasi is the talented winemaker who made Solaia and Tignanello – two of the most iconic (and expensive) wines to ever come out of Italy.
- Stefano's Angel funding allowed him to work with an old Sangiovese vineyard that produces a tiny amount of super-concentrated grapes - this flavor-saturated red screams for a bowl of Carbonara...
- This Chianti Classico will directly transport you into a balmy Tuscan evening - a wonderful tang of cherry fruit with a rustic, earthy finish... this red is sophisticated, refined oh-so-delicious, and exclusive to the Angels who make it possible.
WE'RE NOT SURE
- This is the kind of Prosecco you'll find Paolo sipping on, any day of the week.
- Creamier than Cava, with a less brutal fizz than Champagne, this tongue-tingling treasure is the kind of sparkling that rarely leaves Italy. But you can get your hands on it thanks to our special relationship with Signor Sacchetto.
- Bubbles this tasty don't even require a special occasion. Stick this in the fridge and pop a bottle just because the sun is shining...
- Pro Tip: This Prosecco is dry and crisp. Looking for a little bit more sweetness? Opt for his Col De L'Utia Prosecco Superiore.
Your Poggio di Guardia come from one of the highest vineyards in Tuscany, next to the Chianti Classico region.
These grapes are all selected by hand - no one berry is wrong. The result is a deep purple-red wine, with spicy black pepper, licorice, mint and blueberry flavors. It's pure silk and has a taste that will keep you coming back for more!
If you have the patience to wait then I would leave this wine until the end of 2017. The wine will start to show at its best from this point on, and it will only improve with age for decades to come!
- Imagine the crisp freshness of a Pinot Grigio and the citrusy zing of Sauv Blanc - put them together, and you've got Pecorino. It manages to being super flavorsome, yet super-crisp at the same time.
- You may not have heard of this varietal before - that's because Italians tend to hog it all for themselves. It goes with every meal imaginable... from simple grilled fish to creamy sauces and soups.
- Christian pulled a few strings to make you more pristine Pecorino than ever before - so you can drink in the best Italy has to offer... for less than $10 a bottle!
- This Italian red blend is so complex – full of bright, peppery fruit (that's Sangiovese for you) and a soft, flowery finish (from the Negroamaro).
- Dom sourced the finest grapes from Southern Italy's Puglia region using Angel funding - and because of all his wine know-how, he got them for the right price. It's all about who you know, you know!
- Spoon a scrumptious meat sauce over a steaming bowl of rigatoni (don't forget to add a mound of parmesan on top). If you thought you loved rich Italian reds before, just wait until you get them in front of Italian food.
- Deep and intense Sangiovese that perfectly captures the dark flavors and expressiveness of this classic Italian wine.
- Maurizio is one of the world's most famous Brunello winemaking consultants (and a true master of this grape variety). When he says that Tuscany is the best place in the world for mature and expressive Sangiovese, we believe him!
- A perfect Tuscan red like this just screams for thick noodles and meaty ragù.
Thanks to a long hot summer, this new vintage of Paulo’s Pinot Grigio tastes even better than before. It’s crisp and citrusy, with a punch of tropical fruit in the finish.
His family’s been making wine for three generations, so they know how to get the very best from their fruit - that’s why this tastes as good as other PG's that cost twice the price.
- This Pinot Grigio is great with rustic Italian dishes. So pour yourself a glass, tear off some bread, and start attacking that pesto.
- Bright, full-bodied, and ready for any season, the Cordero Arneis can change the way you look at white wine forever.
- Nobody's ever heard of Arneis, a grape variety that almost went extinct in the 1970s when only one family continued growing it... so it's incredibly good value because it's still virtually unknown (only 1840 acres were planted, according to the 2000 Italian census).
- The Cordero family's white is a bottled pear orchard, full of ripe, sun-kissed fruit and crazy aromatics. A plateful of piping hot seafood pasta needs to follow this wine wherever it goes.
