Our featured wine of the week: DECEMBER 4th
Baron Pizzini “Animate” Franciacorta N/V Brut
Franciacorta is Italy’s first Sparkling DOCG and the wines come from the Glacial Amphitheater located in the hills surrounding Lake Iseo in the Northern Italian region of Lombardy. Franciacorta is made in the champagne method with secondary fermentation taking place in the bottle.
Pizzini “Animate” is a blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Bianco with a very low dosage at bottling leading to its crisp, bone dry and mineral finish. Stone fruit and floral flavors play a role but it is the wine’s vibrant acidity that is driving the bus here.
Classic Franciacorta pairings are Creamy Risottos, Umami rich mushroom dishes, shellfish as well as our Cheese of the week.

Our wines are often more subtle and earthy than the fruit-bombs that you find on most supermarket shelves but we believe that once you unlock their charms you will be hooked for life. And since these Old World wines were made on smaller vineyards that have existed for generations they also offer quite a great bang for the buck. There are some amazing New World wines out there but they tend to cost a great deal more than we want to charge our customers. We want to be the wine portal for people of all ages and incomes who are new to wine and want to explore without breaking the bank.
