Juice Box Wine 3 Pack – July

As move out of a rainy start to the summer season and into some beautiful sunshine, I have selected a series of wines that are sure to satisfy on a hot summer day. From sipping on the patio to pairing to that perfect summer BBQ, this line up of all Italian wines is a knockout. The main spotlight of this order is from a producer called La Spinetta, a producer with a long family history in viticulture in the region of Piedmont, that I have loved for years. Beginning as grape farmers in the 1960’s, La Spinetta produced its first bottle of wine in 1977. With an eye on international wine trends, La Spinetta focused most of their efforts perfecting their Nebbiolo grape production to create Barolo’s, Barbaresco’s and their Nebbiolo DOC wines. Nebbiolo is has tons of aging potential and with high acidity and stringent tannins, it is a great food wine.

In 2001, La Spinetta purchased property in Tuscany allowing them to expand into Sangiovese production. Tuscany being a hotter climate, La Spinetta branched out into some fresher styles of wine making, including the rose from this order.

Taburno Falanghina Del Sannio from Fontanavecchia
This wine is made from 100% Falanghina, a grape varietal many have likely not tried. While this is my only selection not made by La Spinetta, it was selected because it is the perfect summer white! Expect bright acidity, with notes of white peach, candied citrus and floral undertones. This wine is perfect for light summer fare, pair this with grilled fish and summer salads.

Collefrisio Rose
The rosato style of Montepulciano d’Abruzzo is sometimes labeled as Cerasuolo which means “cherry-red” and relates to the deep colour the wine gets even with very brief skin-contact with the highly pigmented skins of the Montepulciano grape. Cherry red colour with pink reflections. A fruity scent, containing hints of cherry and cherry plum. A fresh, fragrant and lasting taste, well balanced and with good structure.

La Spinetta Langhe Nebbiolo
In Piedmont, Nebbiolo is king. Creating some of the world’s most sought-after wines, such as Barolo and Barbaresco. With limited production and high demand, premium Nebbiolo wines start over $50/bottle. La Spinetta’s Nebbiolo DOC delivers much of the experience you expect from Barolo and Barbaresco without the crazy price tag. Expect cherry fruit, tobacco and leather, as well as rose pedal on the palate. Perfectly pair this with a grilled ribeye steak.
