          Description

          Italy is one of the most diverse wine growing regions in Europe. Take a tour through the wine regions of the country as you sample varieties that have become hallmarks of Italian wine. This trio includes a fruity and sparkling Prosecco from Veneto, a juicy red from Tuscany and a spicy Nero d'Avola from Sicily.

          Wine Gift Trio Includes:

          • Santa Margherita Prosecco:
            This sparkling wine is clean and pleasantly fruity, with whiffs of rennet apples and peach blossoms. It has a delicate, balanced taste.

          • Mazzoni Tuscan Rosso:
            The Sangiovese provides a firm backbone and substantial body in this Tuscan, while the Merlot brings a luscious mouthfeel and lingering finish. It as a strong ruby red color and an intense bouquet of ripe dark berries.

          • Torresella Nero d'Avola:
            Very intense, this Nero d'Avola displays red and black berry fruit, spices, aromatic herbs and balsam. It is fresh and soft-textured with outstanding body.

          • Printed insert that describes the featured wines

            Due to the popularity of this gift, wines or vintages sometimes sell out. Should this happen, we will always substitute with the current vintage and wines with equal or greater value.

          Critical Acclaim

          Barossa Valley

          View all wine

          Historically and presently the most important wine-producing region of Australia, the Barossa Valley is set in South Australia, where more than half of the country’s wine is made. Because the climate is very hot and dry, vineyard managers must be careful so that grapes do not become overripe. Some of the oldest vines in Australia can be found here—in the cooler, wetter Eden Valley sub-region, the Hill of Grace vineyard is home to 140+ year old Shiraz vines.

          The intense heat is ideal for plush, bold reds, particularly Rhône blends featuring Shiraz, Grenache, and Mataro (Mourvèdre). White grapes can produce crisp, fresh wines from Riesling, Chardonnay, and Semillon if they are planted at higher altitudes where they may benefit from cool breezes, particularly in the Eden Valley.

          Riesling

          View all wine

          A regal variety of incredible purity and precision, Riesling possesses a remarkable ability to reflect the character of wherever it is grown while still maintaining easily identifiable typicity. This versatile grape can be just as enjoyable dry or sweet, young or old, still or sparkling, and can age longer than nearly any other white variety. Riesling is best known in Germany and Alsace, and is also of great importance in Austria. The variety has also been particularly successful in Australia’s Clare and Eden Valleys, New Zealand, Oregon, Washington, cooler regions of California, and the Finger Lakes in New York.

          In the Glass

          Riesling is low in alcohol, with high acidity, steely minerality, and stone fruit, spice, citrus, and floral notes. At its ripest it leans towards juicy peach and nectarine, and pineapple, while in cooler climes it is more redolent of meyer lemon, lime, and green apple. With age, Riesling can become truly revelatory, developing unique, complex aromatics, often with a hint of gasoline.

          Perfect Pairings

          Riesling is very versatile, enjoying the company of sweet-fleshed fish like sole, most Asian food, especially Thai and Vietnamese (bottlings with some residual sugar and low alcohol are the perfect companions for dishes with substantial spice), and freshly shucked oysters. Sweeter styles work well with fruit-based desserts.

          Sommelier Secret

          It can be difficult to discern the level of sweetness in a Riesling, and German labeling laws do not make things any easier. Look for the world “trocken” to indicate a dry wine, or “halbtrocken” or “feinherb” for off-dry. Some producers will include a helpful sweetness scale on the back label—happily, a growing trend.
