Davide Carlone Wines . . .



So far, what I like about these wines best, is that they are easy to drink.  Not quaffable, per se, but definitely all the parts are well integrated and you won't feel bad for drinking them now.  And the great thing is that no one knows about these (and the production is so tiny that most people will never know about it.).  But for you first early adopters, you can taste wines that are beautifully made, have a sense of place and are a real pleasure to drink.

Call me or email if you want to find out where to buy these great wines.  (310) 270-3747 or justin@rinascimentowineco.com

Santa Caterina Vermentino 2012 Poggi Alti

All white pepper and fresh peach this is about as clean and crisp as you can get but the extra nine days on the skin during fermentation make the weight and body deeper than one usually associates with Vermentino.  Excellent.
