Only Piedmont’s finest can be Sassaia

Yes Virginia, we now sell some awesome Gavi, Barolo and Barbaresco too…

Since I’ve been remiss in posting regularly about so many new happenings at Rad Grapes as mentioned in a recent post, I’m fixing that.

Last Fall I added the incredible Sassaia wines from Azienda Vitivinicola Bergaglio Pier Carlo located in Monferrato, in the heart of Tuscany. The wines are amazing across the board and value priced to boot.

There are two DOCG Gavis, two Barberas, a Monferrato Rosso blend 1/3 each of Nebbiolo, Barbera and Cabernet, DOCG Barbaresco and DOCG Barolo. Half bottles of Gavi, Barbaresco and Barolo are also available. Waaa? Nice, right? You really have to try the wines. My favorites are the Blue label Gavi made from 70+ year old vines and the Barolo, currently the 2010 vintage is drinking impeccably.

The wines are available throughout NY since I’ve been selling them for about 8-9 months, but there’s lots more work to be done.

In the meantime if you wish to have your mind whisk you away momentarily into the Tuscan Hillside, check out the winery’s website.
